Some people talk because they have something to say. Others talk because they have to say something.

It's by the same guy who designed Katamari, so I'll give it a try. I only with they gave us the first Katamari game in Europe. :(

It requires 64bit to use more.


Ahhh okay, my memory failed me.... (excuse the pun).

XP supports up to a maximum of 4 gig. While server 2003 Enterprise supports up to 32 and server 2003 Datacenter supports up to 64 gig.

While with XP the virtual adresses it will use is 2 gig. Maybe where I was thinking max physuical ram was 2 gig.

So, finally got the last set yesterday, 3.37 is the grand total. :)

I never understand the usage of the word "same" in this kind of sentences. :|

What's not to understand? How do you interpret it?

I understand what the sentence means, I just don't understand why you need to use the word when writing it. The sentence makes perfect sense without the word. In fact, it seems gramatically incorrect, since "same" implies you are connecting two things as being one - that doesn't work when you only mention one of those, in this case "a guy". ;) It seems to be a result of throwing together the sentences "It's by the guy who designed Katamari" and "It's the same guy" (in a context where the Katamari designer has been mentioned previously).

Mas is basically correct. In that context, "same" is used as an intensifier, and also serves to reduce ambiguity.

Gone and booked the holiday for our second anniversary.

Lovely lodge hotel, jacuzzi, nice grounds, and a gaming convention on while we are there in the local University.

Joy!

Geez, haven't been here for AGES!

Though that might be something to do with school being finished and my house having no internet and the slim chance of there being internet at my home anytime soon due to Prime Minister (Chairman) Kevin Rudd's broadband plan going down the toilet. Oh well...

I dont know if the following has been mentioned, but it's worth mentioning again.

ATTENTION ALL AUSTRALIANS
ATTENTION ALL NON-AUSTRALIANS WHO LIKE COMMUNICATING TO AUSTRALIANS

The Australian Federal Government is pushing forward with a plan to force Internet Service Providers [ISPs] to censor the Internet for all Australians. This plan will waste tens of millions of taxpayer dollars and slow down Internet access.

Despite being almost universally condemned by the public, ISPs, State Governments, Media and censorship experts, Communications Minister Stephen Conroy is determined to force this filter into your home.

Also go to www.chairmanrudd.com for more info and some humour.
