    i did buy it through steam, makes it more likely to work but its worse when it goes wrong thank to the number of different programs it uses

    I'm more a fan of the hardcore GTR2 series. Mind you, it does suck when you are racing for 40mins and then having a crash that ends your race. Used to happen all the time until I used a guide to calibrate the G25 to some car mappings. Shame I don't have the time anymore :(

    I never had any probs with games and win 7 until this one,but god knows its persistent!
    Whats the nearest to Gran Turismo for the pc?
    Are GriD and F1 '10 any good?
    I like car racing myself but since gran turismo nothing really even comes close to matching up.

    I'd say NFS:Shift is the closest to Gran Turismo in that it has real cars and has good physics. (not as good as GTR2 :p)

    Oh really?i gave up on NFS about the time carbon came out,it was very pretty and ran quite well but i couldnt settle with it,maybe too much flash and not enough substance i am not sure.
    Given that there has been several other NFS games since,i assume its got better?

    On a total tangent,i managed to get nivea face wash in my eye today and its been blurry for hours!
    Don't know whats in that stuff but it bloody stings...
    note to self,eye wash for eyes,face wash for..

    Cheers,i will have a look on steam and see whats what with GTR2 and NFS:shift.
    Maybe that beef was just to create some publicity,as there doesnt seem to be anything more recent on the subject,and that page was '09.

    Back in my school days, I came across a gang that was holding up a polish or russian kid a knife point. the foriegn kid didnt have any money to steal to they told him to start dancing or sing them a song.

    so the kid start breaking dancing and doing what can only be described as a Toshiba rap.

    "Big boys big boys, who do you think you are. Youre not as big as TOSHIBA"

    given the fact that he didnt speak much english at all. the gang let him go on his way.


    good times

    I lived in ramsgate for a bit (newington estate,pretty grim) and the local lads would have up the foreign exchange students with appalling regularity...

    The same kind of period i got dragged into "the wind tunnel" by a 14 year old girl (i was 10) who i couldn't work out if i fancied her or not,spurred on by my pals-she wanted nawty things with me.

    I went back to ramsgate a couple of years back and the place where i used to live was all barricaded up and the whole area looked pretty bad,i met up with an old pal and reminisced a bit,he told me the girl was pretty hard on brown and bones now...made me feel terrible!

    I have never felt so good as when i reached back home to deptford,equally as grim but not filled with so many sad memories.

    just saying :)

    On a much more positive note: DiRT2 seems to be fine now i have reset the bios to default,dropping the overclock thats been in place for months and not affected anything else?!?
    At least its working fully now !

    Cut it yourself like a boss! I did my last haircut myself off a dare, it turned out ok. Not going to repeat the dare anytime soon though. Just run the hair cutting machine (idk what it is called, electric razor?) around and you are done.
