    1. Who's gonna win for president?
    Hmm, politics...They're all the same, you get what you want to hear, then they get ellected and they keep feeding you what you want to hear without doing anything until it's time for reelection, when they start telling you what you want to hear, until they get... The cycle goes on.

    2. Is there life on other planets?
    Sure, I mean why would the Earth be unique in an Universe with numerous Gallaxies and unimaginable number of planets ?

    As a matter of fact, those of you who believe, check out the SETI program at
    http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ and if you want, join the SpeedGuide.net SETI group I just started:
    http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/c...uide.net++SETI

    3. Intel vs. AMD
    AMD Athlon rules.

    4. How many fps can the eye really see?
    25, however it can see the change in FPS at higher rates...

    5. What is your favorite puter game?
    Hmm, I get tired of them easily, however I've enjoyed Q3A, XWA, Tzar, UT, Starcraft, Battlezone 2...

    6. What state do you live in? (besides denial)
    Florida, USA, Earth

    7. What the best website on the net?
    Hard to say... These are funny:
    http://www.microshaft.com
    http://www.quuxuum.org/~evan/bgnw.html

    8. Pro warez or Anti Warez?
    Definitely Anti-Warez for commercial use, Software companies need to make money too... Undecided for home use (I think they're making too big of a deal out of it).

    9. Best Utility you have?
    Grand Cherokee Limited ... Just kidding. Planning to buy a SUV one of these days though. Other than that, Hex Workshop I guess.

    10. Favorite type of music?
    Hmm, I like Pink Floyd, Dire Straits, Led Zeppelin...

    Ok Let's do it:

    1. Who's gonna win for president?
    I dunno! If I knew that I'd be rich! I haven't quite grasped that foreseing the future power yet ;-) Personally I haven't even been keeping up on it all, I kinda wish I had now seeing as this will be the first election I will actually be able to vote in. I am 20 years old as of last november.

    2. Is there life on other planets?
    Actually I don't know, and you know what, I just don't worry about it because no where in the bible does it mention anything about other life on other planets, so me thinks it's just not an issue really that we need to worry about.

    3. Intel vs. AMD
    Now this can be a firiey (sp?) one. Personally I like Intel better because it has BETTER COMPATIBILITY with everything, and it's got the most attention with optimizing and all. It just works. But Now I have to give Credit to AMD on the Athlon cpu the Athlon is the FIRST REAL cpu from AMD IMO. It is faster then the P3 in certain things, I'll give it that. It's a solid CPU. The only downside to the whole thing is currently the Motherboards, there just aren't any good ones yet. The new VIA KX133 chipset just plain sucks, it's slow.

    4. How many fps can the eye really see?
    I believe there is no magic number, we can all percieve fps differently. I may be able to see 55 fps where you can only see 54 or 35 or 25 as an example. Our brain can assimilate 9,999,999,999 fps (as an example) But we conciously have a limit to how much we interpret. BUT We CAN ALL see the CHANGE in FPS. Like if it goes from 100fps to 60fps and back and forth, we see the CHANGES in FPS and that's what we are all complaining about with Games! We have to understand it's not that we need 200 or 500fps to enjoy a game, it's that we need a CONSISTANT NON CHANGING FPS of say like 60fps with motion blur. Then it will look good and people will stop complaining.

    5. What is your favorite puter game?
    Ulmitately it's Civilization 2, Best Game there is and every was! I lost alot of sleep and got alot of bad grades over this game! hhahaha

    6. What state do you live in? (besides denial)
    Grand Prairie, TX, Earth, Sol, Milkyway Galaxy, Sector 001, Alpha Quadrant, Universe

    7. What the best website on the net?
    I like:
    www.voodooextreme.com
    www.speedguide.net
    www.hardocp.com
    www.explosive3d.com (when it's up ;-)
    there are more but I'm too tired to type

    8. Pro warez or Anti Warez?
    Professionally: Anti
    Off the Record: No Comment ;-)
    though I agree with Philip it's too hyped/overrated/not that big of a deal

    9. Best Utility you have?
    I want an SUV too! And how did you know I also want the Grand Cherokee! Actually i would settle for just the Jeep Cherokee 4x4, that's what I want, brand new lookin sharp
    My best util i guess would be friends and knowing people, cause you can get free things by friends knowing a friend etc..

    10. Favorite type of music?
    I like:
    Alternative
    Rock
    Light Industrial and only a couple of Metal songs
    I like NIN and Metallica etc..
    Classic Rock
    I even like Oldies :-)

    There Are ya happy now!!

    thanks for that brent... I fell like we're brothers! jk, hehehe. I also enjoy Zeppelin, Counting crows, Clapton, Pink Floyd, and Tom Petty. cool fact: when my neighbor moved last year, he left me with about 100 cd's ranging from the worlds top 10 pokas to DMX to Aerosmith; there was just plain every type of music you could want there.

    Yes, there is life on other planets.

    I am(also) agains't warezing for commercial use. For private use, lets be honest... if you have the means and the knowledge it is awfully tempting. But Im not one of those hardcore warezer's who has like every application and game known to man stored on cdrs on my shelf!

    Well, I have to get going,
