Hydrogen cars are pretty far along, IIRC. While they are not powered by water, per se, they do produce water for their exhaust. Hydrogen fuel would be extremely cheap compared to the rising price of gasoline. However, you have to think of it in an economic aspect as well. The availability of the new...

Views: 12937

The gas prices here are much higher than they were a few years ago, but I'm not about to complain because it could be a lot worse. My last car had a 20 gallon tank and got around 17 miles/gallon city, 25 highway. My current car has a 12.5 gallon tank and gets 28 miles/gallon city 37 highway. Even th...

Just because the version number on Ambrosia's patch is higher doesn't mean that it adds anything to the game. Most likely it's just a bug-fix release (and considering they only ported the game to Mac OS X, I highly doubt they would have added anything but their custom copy-protection code). Also, In...

Perhaps, but we're talking about being able to use a mouse and perform the fabled art of "pointing and clicking."

Regis, 1.2 is my final answer.

Canned reply: Please don't bump dead topics. Answer: The saved games are compatible between Linux and Windows (unless Ambrosia changed/broke something, I'd imagine Mac saves would work, too). All you have to do is mount your Windows drive (many distros will allow you to mount NTFS volumes now, if yo...

Many servers in Uplink have different versions of monitor, firewall, and proxy software. It's possible that it could be a level 5 proxy. And, yeah, to disable a proxy you have to have disabler with at least as high of a level as the server software. Proxy Disable 5 will disable all proxies in the st...

The level of your proxy disabler most likely is not high enough. Purchase the IP Probe software (if you haven't already -- it's cheap, IIRC) and run that on the bank's IP. That'll tell you what software versions the remote system's monitor, proxy, and firewall are.
