I don't do the online poker thing anymore .... I don't want to pay and the people who play the free games just go all in every hand .... not very fun.

Well, not exactly a youngster anymore Lighthouse, nearing primetime for a mid-life crisis in fact.

As for the poker, I play with a semi-regular group. The Tuesday night game is the best because it is a non-Hold'em game. In fact, if I remember correctly, tonight it's HORSE, and it's a bounty game too, good times good times (and not a bad bankroll builder either ;-).

OK, but I've never been much of a card player (apart from Hearts. I like that)

@jack,
i havent yet ran crysis, but i'm sure if it will be ok, ( thats if i lower the GFx settings ) .
and by the way, i hae 2 GB of ram, and i really wanted to upgrade it to 4 GB,
but i have been told it's a waste..there isn't much difference!
is that true? or shall i get 4 GB RAM?

ok so what i've heard now is that vista 32-bit only goes up to 3gb so if you have 32-bit 3gb would be the max but with 64-bit the sky is the limit.

Hi All.

Just thought i'd add i suggest getting a x64 OS if you want to have more than 3 gig it doesn't get fully recognised on a x32 bit OS.
and i have heard crysis is REALLY good apprently you can kill people by throwing chickens at them :)

Death by chicken? That pwns! Are these thawed or frozen chickens, 'cause it makes a difference. The MythBusters demonstrated this in episode 14 with the chicken gun. Thawed birds go splat, but a frozen bird makes a neat hole in 12 panes of glass:

Yeah apprently if you use super strength ( or something or other ¬_¬ ) you can pick up a chicken and chuck it at them pretty much knocking them clean out :)
