  1. I've had this happen to me. You try shooting and it just click click clicks and tries reloading. What fixes it for me is if I click on the Reload key a bunch of times. That seems to 'unlock' the reload so that it shoots normally again. Anyways, this only happens once in a while.
  2. You guys are probably right that going from 6Mbps to 12Mbps won't make much of a difference on gameplay. But what about the fact that Uverse goes through fiber-optic instead of DSL's phone lines. Would that improve the response times (ping) at all?
  3. I have 6 Mbps AT&T DSL and am thinking about getting 12 Mbps AT&T U-verse internet. It's supposedly based on fiber-optic instead of phone lines. Is anyone using AT&T U-verse? If so, what speed? Is it much better than DSL and does it help when playing ET?

    iPhone 4

    Got the iPhone 4! Love it! The web browsing is much faster than iPhone 3G. I actually browse the internet a lot now while on the go on the 3G network. The reception issue when holding it a certain way is real. If you hold it in the palm of your left hand, it slows down real bad. No problem though. I just hold the sides with my finger tips, and not in the palm of my hand and everything works fine.

    Lag

    Hi everyone. I noticed that while playing, my ping would be 80-85 when standing still but when running, it would spike to 140 or so and be very laggy. I wondered why the ping would spike whenever I moved. I just recently found out what was causing this and thought I would share with everyone in case anyone else had the same problem. It turned out to be a hardware problem. One time, while playing, I got kicked by PB for losing too many key packets. I wondered why that would be. It seemed like my network connection was bad. Anyways, on another day while I was using my computer and talking on my landline phone at the same time, I heard a bunch of buzzing noises on my phone. Then, while I was listening to music, I heard some buzzing noises coming from my speakers. This got me thinking that there might be lots of interference coming from the wires behind my PC. If you look behind my desk, you'd see a jungle of wires and cables. I thought that all these wires might be causing interference for my network cable, causing the lost packets. So I separated the network cables from the rest of the cables behind my desk and moved them to make sure that they were far away from all other wires and cables to minimize any possible interference. After I did this, I experienced no or much less lag. Just thought I'd share in case anyone else had the same problem.

    iPhone 4

    Lucky Medic. I saw a demo on Youtube and the iPhone 4 is faster than iPhone 3GS while browsing on the 3G network. (www.youtube.com/watch?v=0V2rhMnncZQ) Maybe because of the external antenna. Anyways, I didn't get one because I didn't want to stand in line for 3 hours. I signed up for the priority list for the next shipment. Hopefully, they'll get more in stock soon and I can go pick it up.
  7. 3000? Wow I had no idea.
  8. It seems like Apps are the new HTML/Web Sites. Every major web site is building an app, which is kinda cool because it means that instead of browsing using slow HTML and Safari, we'll be able to browse using highly interactive and user-friendly apps.
  9. Can't wait to try this out at Target. I was thinking of getting one but didn't know what it would be like. It will be cool to see if the e-ink screen is worth getting and to see how user friendly the interface is.
  10. Yup hardcore has typically lagged the most for me out of all the servers. The last few times it's been ok though so seems like it might be getting better.
  11. I don't see people using these on the streets next to regular autos. They would be more useful as sightseeing vehicles for tourists. For example, if you were to visit a college campus, you could travel around the entire campus on paved roads for pedestrians or bicycles. Or if you were to visit Golden Gate Park in SF. There are a lot of landmarks and getting from one to the next on foot is a pain. I see this more in the same category as a Segway scooter, but with the convenience of being able to sit down, let your passenger sip coffee, and protect you from the sun or rain.
