I'd rate it 5/10. I like the graphics but the way you combined your colors just hurts my eyes. And of course your HTML errors should be corrected. Just a suggestion, why don't you try getting all of the free/downloadable browsers that you can get and test your site on each browser. I'm using FireFox and your layout looks fine but what about other browsers?

well, releases don't come out for consoles first. It depends on the game. Things like GTA are console based games, so they come out for consoles first. Other games start on the PC and are slowly ported to consoles.
For me, the PC is the best choice. These days, a cheap PC will play most games, and you have a HUGE library to choose from. Go to a PC store like CompUSA in the states and there are older PC games for like 10 bucks. Some of the older games are fantastic as well.
Then there are the emulators. Any game up through almost the playstation 1 can be run on your PC. Even the few good N64 games are available(for free, though its not very legit).
On the other hand, Consoles don't give you any BS. Windows games usually install just fine, but unless you have a powerfull machine, you really don't know how well it will run(or even if it will run, some games are still released rather buggy). Linux doesn't have many games, though that is changing. Be that as it may, linux is still a pain to deal with until you have a lot of experience with it. The Mac is about the state of linux for number of games, but easier to deal with. So, your windows pc is the only real option(especially since some games demand directx, which you won't get anywhere else).
With a console all of that stuff is gone, just buy the game, put it in, and play. For the casual gamer, this fact plus the long term cheaper costs make it a good option. the only problem then is which system to buy.

Its one of the better, free, online games out there. I believe it is illegal to sell accounts and items for real cash, but I'm not one to pry (just thought you may look into that). Anyways, my account name is runemidget, but as of late I have not been on very frequently, feel free to sign me on as a friend, and next time im on ill pm you.

Yeah i would also like to know wat the differences are between CS 1.6 and CS Source. I heard the graphics are insanely accurate in Source. Personally i wouldnt really know that much about the subject but i do own Counterstrike ofr Xbox and its a pretty awesome game. Oh yeah i still in the process of writing a tutorial that shows you how to get Xbox Live for free so you dont have to pay to play Counterstrike online. I will let yall know when i finish the tutorial

I always regret buying my Xbox, modded or not, and usually few reasons why I don't, those reasons: Fable, Doom 3, Strangers Wrath, Knights of the Old Republic 1 & 2, and now Half Life 2.
I already own Half Life for PS2, so when I saw Half Life 2 was out, I had to decide, Xbox or Computer. Computer would be harder to pirate, since I dont have any money to buy it now, and I had a free game rental coming from Family Video, so I went with Xbox.
I can only say this, the game is out standing. Most FPS games rely on just blowing people away alone, shooting stuff, running, getting a key, and shooting more.
Half Life 2 is a great balance of puzzles and action, and makes a great game out of it. You won't be fireing your gun the entire time, but your gun wont be forgotten either.
The story, in my opinion is pretty good, I like it alot, and the small bits of comedy they add in to it are a pretty good touch, it shows, even when you are in a horrible position, you always have time to laugh.

To join this conversation I would like to start out with the fact that I think Open Source OS has an amazing and solidary attitude towards their users. I have always been a windows user. Not by free choice, but because it's been the only thing I've ever heard of. Now that I'm learning about Linux and Unix and the way it plows through the world with their free and "for everyone, everywhere"- mindset, I simply can't help myself from downloading every piece of linux/unix based OS out there, to learn about it.
One thing is that windows, the way I've experienced it, has the most various softwares available for use. Having been through a musicproduction period, I came across too many sofware packages for musiccreation to ever being able to buy. I may even say there were too many alternatives leading to uncertainty and confusion, and always a very high cost for quality.
I learned along the way that Apple are excellent for musicproduction and visual production such as videomaking and picture editing. I learned that from getting to know musicproducers and photographers/videomakers and being with them in the production. I have never had Mac/Apple myself, but from the view of things, it seems as if it has a solid OS, solid music and videosoftwares and that whenever someone buys a Mac, they always end up with the same software as everyone else either it's music or video/photo. Seems very clean and solid.
With the knowledge of the addictive ways of computergaming, I've tried to avoid using my recources on PC graphics cards and such, because I've seen too many friends fall into the dark pits of CS, Battlefield, Warcraft and other games in a mid-summers day when the girls and sun and warm weather are waiting for you. Behind closed curtains and dampened lights it's as if every gamer has a high quality graphicscard, a windows OS and a copy of their favourite game.
Now that I've been through the most expensive parts of OS'es, the way I see it, I end up looking for something to serve on the internet with. Windows servers are VERY expensive, and Apple/Mac software servers is a thing I haven't even been looking for. Maybe someone can write about that.
People talk alot about Linux as the best webservers and webhosts, soo I looked it up. And my surprise is that it is free of cost, and they have a policy with the intention to reach out to poor countries and help the advancement of modern technology (Ubuntu Linux). They say that some of the OS'es are not very userfriendly, but the fact that it's free and open sourced seems to have made it possible for the public to alternate it's function, develop it further and be a more userfriendly interface. Not sure if I got that one right, but the main thing is that it is free of cost, and so is most of it's additional essential software.
To sum it up I believe that the most entertaining OS is Windows, but also with a vast variety of softwares for all purposes. The best OS for media creation seems to be MAC and the best and most secure serving OS is Linux/Unix.
My hopes are that the Open Source community grows and expands both userfriendlyness and software variety, and maybe one day we will have a free opportunity to do whatever a computer can offer within creation, entertainment and serving. Even at the highest quailty, so that access to the important education of a PC is not only restricted to a rich country, but also available to less fortunate countries.
Who knows? Maybe we've missed out on a few computergeniuses already. The expansion of computertechnology also depends on wether the right knowledge reaches the right people. Making it free will increase the probability. Thank you for your time.

I am on the way to order my Canon Digital Rebel XT with the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM lense and really see the digital camera world! I personally think that film cameras are good to learn with and become more experienced in and then move on over to digital dslr. But then again with the dslr you can see and understand your mistakes for free as to film where you have to pay to develope or spend some quality time in the dark room!

Well, this should be good.
I've been a Beatles (John, Paul, George, and Ringo) fan for a long time; additionally, I love beetles (Volkswagens not insects). My very first website was a list of VW links and a story about my VW. It just seemed natual that I use beetleman as my username. I've been using that name for 10 years. Sometimes I have to use something else in case someone else already took beetleman or maybe it was me and I forgot the password so I need a new account. So usually I use beetleman or beetlman6272, but here in 8 character land, I'm beetlema.
So what's that have to do with vujsa? well when I went to college many years ago, my first roomate was Japanese. I attended a small junior college with a large Japanese student population. As a result I made friends with several, if not all, of them. Over the years, I have lost touch with my friends so I decided to setup a forum for all of us to use to get reaquainted. I went to V.U. and they are Japanese Students Alumni so V.U.J.S.A.
Other free webhosting sites I looked into turned your username into your subdomain or account name /~username. Not fully understanding how this site worked, I chose to use my desired subdomain name instead of my normal username. As a result I'm vujsa here. No big deal I guess but I always type: beetle<-<-<-<-<-<-vujsa
<- = backspace.
I've considered having my username changed but we'll see.
