    Folk, I'm all for people posting what their specs, but Unforgiven is just asking for this. His post is trying to shove it in people's faces.
    I didn't read it that way. To me, it just sounded like a guy who was proud of his rig.

    And I made my reply before Unforgiven posted that it was a "joke". If I had read that first, I probably wouldn't have bothered. That aside, when anyone posts specs of a monster rig, there is an inevitable "pile-on" of people talking smack about "e-*****" or whatever. I don't really undersand this attitude. If there weren't a market for the very high end stuff, then you wouldn't see it advertised. Obviously someone is buying at that level, so why do people seem so shocked when someone says they have that type of system. The owner could have slaved his *** off to be able to afford it. Or he could have had it handed to him on a silver platter, but in the end it doesn't really matter.

    I would have a problem with someone saying "my box is awesome and the rest of you suck", but that wasn't what Unforgiven did. He said, "because I can", which I don't read as negative at all. I recently upgraded my P4 2.4 to a 2.8. Why? Because it's the fastest processor my aging motherboard will handle, and because I was able to O/C it to 3.0... and because I can.

          If you missed my post, I'll reiterate it here for you. You will ping roughly twice as bad on sat as you will on your dialup if you are going to be gaming. That is a fact, most sat has pings of 500 - 800 (or worse). For downloading big files and surfing it will be great though.
          Unforgiven.... ^^^ This post is 100% correct.

          Because of latency issues with routing a signal off of a satellite, you will find a sat connection is USELESS for gaming.

          Keep your dial-up connection for gaming... You'll find that it is 200% better. The sat can be used for general internet surfing and downloads.

                  On another note, Sometime in 2005 I'm finally dumping dialup and getting a sat connection, dsl, cable is not an option so sat is the only choice for me. So sometime in 05 you'll be running into me in ut2004 servers and if your unlucky get a rocket in the face lol
                  So... wanna give me your old CPU

                      In some cultures a lack of modesty is considered offensive and the display of wealth is considered vulgar (lacking refinement or cultivation or taste). In others people praise success and the accumulation of material goods.

                      Just accept that this is cultural difference and people like me will never understand posts like that - joke or otherwise...
