    As to the MULTITUDE of games i still play, thats a different thread. I have many games. More PC games than your fragile little Taffer brains can handle. Everyting from X-Tank to Sam & Max: Roadtrip and BattleZone to the leaked alphas of UnrealII and Doom III. The only games i never play are RTS's. Man, they suck.

    Man, i have soo much crap around here. Its a wonder i even find time for Thievery amongst the feverish amounts of Jedi Knight II, BF1942 and all the HL Mods i play. Anyone here play The Specialists or Earth's Special Forces? They be damned good HL Mods. The Specialists is a game that is closer to that feeling of The Matrix than ANY GAME has ever tried to emulate.

        No, the point is that there are just a few major things to backup and once that's done we won't need it.

          Ok, I just decided to put in my really old 2GB hard drive as my second hard drive next to my 80GB. I figured I could have some use for it (at least until I decide to get another, bigger HD). Any suggestions?

              You know, i have no vague conception of why the hell paperweights exist. So, like, they are designed to keep looseleaf papers from gusting off your desk. however, it stands to reason that if you own a desk, chances are that it is inside, where there ARE no gusts of wind. But if you look at paperweights at the atomic level, you will discover that most of them are made of the one thing we all fear: matter. it is true that matter is our enemy. We fire bullets at it, and it simply disperses and regroups. We fire rockets and mortar shells and it simply scatters only to incorporate it with other pieces of matter to rise up and threaten us with its largely inert stare. The only way we have to destroy matter so far is either to use a particle accelerator or some sort of fusion-which wouldnt destroy matter, but it certainly make it's numbers smaller by a half.

              Particle Accelerators work by throwing matter around in a circle and slamming it into a large wheel of cheese, which we all know is the only form of antimatter we have available to us in our technological evolution. PA's arent really practical, because they are made of matter, and how can you throw a particle accelerator around a particle accelerator to destroy it? You use a bigger particle accelerator, of course. But then, you have to build another, bigger one to dispose of that one, and so on and so forth. That, gentletaffers is why we cannot allow the Greenshirts to have our flashbombs. Bees buzz, and i moo on you.

              Us taffers make it simple in the matter war, our methods being that we steal big, hunky, heavy, light radiating bits of matter from some rich bastard and go to a pawnshop where we then exchange the heavy, massive bits of matter for small green bits of paper. The matter size is then drastically reduced from its original state, See?

              MOOO!

                    I thought it was. Took me all of 2 seconds to come up with that answer.

                      Install Windows on the 2GB hard drive, keep all of your valuable info on the other drive. The semi-monthly reformat and reinstall could not get any easier ...

                        I would agree that that would be a good idea, but right now my 80 gb has a 10gb partition for windows and that's filled up to like 5 gb, so I'm not sure if I would be able to get windows onto a 2gb. especially since sometimes there are progs/whatever that simply must be put onto the C drive, or at least be put in/near the windows directory.

                          I would bet that at least half of that 5GB is comprised of temporary internet files, temporary installation files, recycle bin, unused Windows programs (Minesweeper, Netmeeting, etc), and system swap. Empty temp files and recycle bin daily (or at least weekly) to limit their size. Also, limit the size of your swap file and move it to a partition of the 80GB hard drive.

                          Limit what you put in My Documents/Music, or move My Documents/Music to the 2nd drive. Limit System Restore to the minimum (WinME, XP). Finally, when you upgrade IE and Outlook to their latest version, install them to the 2nd drive and only install the components you really need.

                          You could even use 2 different Windows versions ... or test an alternative operating system (my choice).

                          If you check my partitions (as listed earlier in this thread), you will notice that one comp has 2 GB for Windows, the other has 3GB, and neither are full.

                            I say borrow a spare drive, reformat, repartition. Make two 10 GB partions. Install windows on one, install all of your most used programs, then COPY it to the second 10 GB partition, somewhere safe. So you got an image of a brand new installation of windows. Next time you want to reformat, just wipe the partition and copy over. Voila!

                            I say this because I'm about to do this, damn WinXP. BTW, WinXP needs a MINIMUM of 2GB. I tried this a while ago. It somehow will work on two, but if will continually complain. If you have room, XP will "inflate" to about 4. Dunno how that works (Bill Gates is at it again).

                              btw, is there a way to have my Documents and Settings folder on my data drive ( D: ) instead of my Windows drive ( C: ) ? I've always wanted it over there, but I can't figure out how.

                                by the way, I thought of something I could do with my 2GB: make it into an external/portable drive I know you can do this, I'm just not sure what's the best/cheapest way to do it. Any ideas?
