Alien: "Rogue" traders really get on my nerves.

What I want for Christmas?

The new Radiohead album (if it's out)
The latest Flaming Lips offering

Red Dwarf
The Office
LotR SE or Spiderman

I also wouldn't mind if Santy Claus wanted to throw a motorscooter, a car, or a new PC.

I've been a good boy.

A new dolby digital high-end sound system.

I blew my old speakers when I listened to my music a little louder than most people do....

All I want for Christmas is my 2 front teeth!

But Really, All I want is Age of Mythology! The Best RTS of all time!(maybe with the exception of starcraft, but it is better than warcraft 3)

Also I want BTTF trilogy, I already have Lotr, spider man, and star wars II SE on DVD.

why do you kneed a 200 gig hard drive, u realy dont need that mutch unless your running a huge amount of servers on your PC, but i understnad if you would get one for braging rights, i have 1.5 gigs of ram

western digital just released one for $280.00 it only a 5200 RPM but it actualy pritty fast

What you say!!

Apart from the fact that reading your posts is really, REALLY hard because of your keyboard diarrhea...

1. One never has enough hard disk space (about 650 MB per game, increasing; loads of MP3s etc.)
2. Why would one need much space for servers? Are you implying that a sane person would run a server (probably FTP) on his home computer?
3. Why 1.5 GB of RAM???

One of those DVD players for my television machine sounds quite good.

Z Steel Soldiers and Broken Sword II are both five pounds, and The Longest Journey, Galactic Battlegrounds, and The Feeble Files are all around £10. Bargain!

That, and some hint books for all that cool behind the scenes stuff and info.

I want cable, you can only watch Judge Judy re-runs for so long.

your right about the space thing... i took that into mind, and i'm sorry about my "keyboard diarrhea"

yes, i am implying, that a person would have an ftp, and i have 1.5 gigs of ram because i bulit 2 computers they both had a larg amount of ram, then i built a computer with dule processors so i took the ram out of the to computers and added it to them and then i already had pre-existing ram beofre that, so i just got lucky with all the ram i guess

Santa needs to bring Guybrush Guy a spellchecker and a copy of Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing <j/k>

I got my wish this Christmas (Already have my x-mas gifts installed) of an 80GB drive (already have a 40GB installed) and a nVidia GeForce 4 Ti 4200 w/128MB DDR.

I use all that space mostly for mp3's, recording stuff with my tv tuner, and full-install on games so I get -0- frame drop/pauses.

Well.... the problem is... I have a lot of movies on my first one. But I think a 40 GB is enough... Yeah, I have 20 GB from before, so that will do...
