Hey have any of you seen that Star Wars fan movie on the web called Duality? I think it's pretty amazing! If you don't know about it you can find it at:
http://www.crewoftwo.com/

It's kind of a look at the training of a Sith apprentice. It was made by a couple of guys with a few DV Cams and a Mac. Looks spectacular for a project of that scope. If they haven't got a job offer from ILM then it should be a matter of time. Check it out and let me know what you think.
You need Quick Time to view it, and it's a couple of minutes long, so if you have a connection slower tha DSL plan on tying up your system for a while.

R9? Cable, T1, and T3? I don't know about the US, but here, T1/T3 lines cost about 25000 per year to maintain. Is the name Gates by any chance? http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif

Well the T1 and T3 are most likely lines at work or school, right 9? We have a T1 at work, but I have to share it with hundreds of others http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/frown.gif. My cable modem at home is much MUCH faster http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/smile.gif. Needless to say I have a better system at home too.

I have a brilliant system, but I'm stuck on 56k, the connection speed of the Jurassic Era....

ive got a cable modem and its great (64k/sec) the one problem is downloading - im not talking about small downloads im talking about the 30meg - 115 meg (demo for elite force) the problem i have is that during big downloads like that it slows down the tranfere rate at the bottom displays about 10k/sec 1) is there anyway to fix it and 2) why couldnt my dad have paid more for a 512K modem

I've found that my cable modem connection is at least twice or three times faster using Windows ME as it was with 98se. I don't know what the difference is. Most people really hate WinME though, so I would be very reluctant to recommend it. I haven't had any problems, I think it works great. Anyway there's a brand new version of Windows (XP) coming out before the end of the years, so it's kinda pointless to upgrade now.

My computer won't play movies no matter how hard I beat it with a cable!

None of the slots are big enough to take the videotape...

I dunno, works for me. Are you guys sure you're using a big enuff cable? Sometimes taking the video tape out of it's case and feeding it into the floppy drive slot has been known to work! http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif
