    How good does it work now ?

    I've been running XP x64 with a standard Core 2 Duo system and 6GB of ram for just about a year now, and I see no reason to change, upgrade, or downgrade. I'm completely satisfied with XP x64, I game, view movies, and do plenty of other tasks, without a hitch. I would recommend XP x64 for use.

    SmoothText 1.1.8

    Hi WildBill, I was wondering if you had any input on this, check out the following picture: By holydicks*** Notice how the text for both running programs is correctly smoothed, but the actual start menu button itself is untouched. Sure, it's a small thing that most people probably wouldn't notice, but is there a reason why the Start text isn't smooth? I've been using Smoothtext for quite a while now, and its something I've noticed pretty much since the beginning, and I just thought today, since I had time to make a post, I'd see if you had any input on this. Keep up the great work!

    The box around icon text

    Hi, I'm wondering if programs exist that make desktop icon text on Windows 2000 appear similar to how icon text is rendered on Windows XP and above. Here are some screenshots, to help show what I'm talking about: Here are icons on Windows XP, notice how there isn't a colored box around the text Here are icons from Windows 2000, where you can see the blue colored box around the text Is there a program available for Windows 2000 that allows icons to appear as they do in Windows XP?

    SmoothText 1.1.8

    Keep up the excellent work WildBill, I can hardly stand to use Windows 2000 without SmoothText anymore. I love how well it works, and I'm recommending it to all my friends who are still sticking with Windows 2000. Thank you, and keep up the good work!
  7. I'll check it out, I normally just use pidgin on my NT4 box.

    SmoothText 1.1.8

    This program has matured nicely, I use it on my 2000 machine constantly. It's configured to start upon login, and I never get any problems. Nice work

    I agree, the interface is a little cumbersome at times.

    GTA IV coming to PC

    And they're suprised why people don't buy this crap. God, that's horrible.

    I always install all available patches, and never really notice a hit in performance.

    GTA IV coming to PC

    My only hope is that Rockstar releases patches making this game worthwhile, and not just abandoning now that it's already out the door.

    When they try so hard to prevent piracy that it prevents legit purchases from working, it's a problem.

    Where did you have your lunch?

    There's no way I could complain about my job when I could have a lunch like that.
