Remember that Introversion are a much smaller company than normaly puts out a game of this quality, they have very limited resources and those resources are better spent on improving the game itself, rather than putting out extra maps. And, the map editor is already in the game, what more do you wan...

Most liquid cooling systems use either pure water [which doesn't conduct], or use a liquid that doesn't conduct, fabricated for that purpose. To prove that pure water isn't conductive, you can, if you wish, go and buy a fishtank that will fit yor case in. you can then fill the tank with pure water,...

Active cooling, using TECs or phase change to get below ambient temperature, is an effective way to get more performance. But, if your doing it solely to gain peformance, you would probably be better off simply buying faster hardware because to do this right is very costly. Its also very easy to kil...

Making an OS more stable and less memory intensive than windows is not hard. Making a multitasking OS with an equivalent API, support for most if not all available hardware, keeping it free of buffer overflows and other exploits and so on is difficult.

Onspeed is the one that comes to mind - compresses the data on the proxy and sends it to you. Its a technique that works well with some types of data, but kills your pings and is reported to cause various problems.

Windows will see each partition as a seperate drive. Thats it. Booting from the first partition will let you see and install stuff to the second, and vice versa. True, a spyware wont be able to put itslef in the registry on the other partition, but a system this clumsy will be very prone to someone ...

Strange, because uplink is not supposed to let you accept a hacker mission which would point back to you. Either the mission was too old, in whic case the relevant logs were deleted, or you should have run the log undeleter on the 127.0.0.1 log and got the real one.

Bet forum I know for general chat and gaming info is at http://www.ironworksforum.com. Its a bit too tightly moderated for my tastes, and some of the stuff that goes freely here would be instant suspension there, but overall its not too bad.

Beno is referring to the fact tht if your IP is banned and you are on a connection which assigns you a new IP through DHCP on each connection, you can get round it. Except, you can ban an entire subnet, although this does have the side effect of knocking out anyone else on the same subnet (on one me...

Simply Uplink is an uplink mod.

In the standard game there is no file compression, so there are no file compression tools, so upload what you got.
