Video Card Woes....
My usual video card was having some minor issues, so I decided to have it repair under warranty and use an older video card in the meantime. The older video was working fine until the fan gave out, resulting in the GPU overheating and burning up. I am limping along with the older one, but here's what Tribes looks like with a burnt GPU:

...and this is with the GPU underclocked, new GPU fan installed at 100%, side of computer case open, and box fan blowing directly into the case.

I order a new one this afternoon from Amazon and I should have it Monday or Tuesday. No ETA on the one that was sent for warranty repair. That one could be weeks and I might keep it as a backup, or sell it as a refurb.

Sucks missing the mixers tonight Sad I organize this and then shit happens -vgs

I got my system back up and "running", but even windows in unstable with this POS.

Hmm. Looks suspicious. I think net is just using the new desert snow and spinfusor deathray hacks and doesnt want us to know.

Or maybe its just his freezeray. And with it he'll stop. the world.

Do you mean the "buckler"? You would be correct.
