 [Chat] hehe Mathematical proof the Women are Evil: From: Mike Lee - 2002-05-21 22:58:37 ```For people that don't spend all there working hours browsing forum.java.sun... Mathematical proof the Women are Evil: As everyone knows, women take time and money: Women = Time * Money And as your boss will always tell you, time is money: Time = Money Therefore, by substitution: Women = Money * Money or Women = Money^2 But of course, money is the root of all evil: Money = Evil^1/2 So by substitution: Women = (Evil^1/2)^2 or, simplified: Women = Evil There you have it... math never lies. -- Mike Lee [ mlk@... ] "Pulling together is the aim of despotism and tyranny. Free men pull in all kinds of directions." Terry Pratchett, The Truth GMX - Die Kommunikationsplattform im Internet. http://www.gmx.net ```

 RE: [Chat] The Good old days From: Nick Johns - 2002-05-21 07:25:20 ```Unfortunately Chris, I think it's either you have to buy a game or 4/5 of us have to buy a game. To my knowledge Chris, Mike, Mark, Spud, Me all don't have Jedi Knight 2. Much as I'd like it I ran a demo and it was uber unstable running on my current gfx card. The sky was really f*(ked up, and it crashed every now and then. BTW you don't necessarily have to buy it again if you already own a copy. You could just download it from me... halflife was one of those nice games that didn't require the cd for multiplayer. (If the server isn't running WON authentication). Oh and on another topic, which would be better, a premium geforce3 or a budget geforce4? Answers on an email to the usual address. Nick > -----Original Message----- > From: Chris.Haggan@...
