    NeedForSpeed CARBON on Intel Macs

    It seems that most things I try give me a mouse at first then a blank screen or it will just quit out, i need to figure out what the issue with FEAR is, I need to do some troubleshooting. FEAR gives me a mouse and a blank screen then the mouse goes away, but I can't even exit out of the blank screen I have to shut the computer off .

    NeedForSpeed CARBON on Intel Macs

    In comparison to Cider it sucks game wise in my opinion, HL2 runs decent especially on my new MBP but still I would like to see this working in cider.Currently I am working on NHL2007 anyone try this game yet?

    we all know that crossover sucks , hopefully once they release gametap for mac we can use the cider in that to lunch steam because gametap is an application

I am starting work on it tonight, hopefully I will have some success, but so far I haven't gotten anything to work, I am going to just get cider going for a little with some other games and then see. Wish me lukc.I keep trying to run it and the application exits right away, let me look at my log filesIt seems that cider has difficulty running small windows applications I was able to run some games fine but I can't get a small application like steam working

    Censorship In Schools

    I agree, especially when the materials being blocked are educational. It is really getting frustraiting.

    Censorship In Schools

    yea i am basically talking of things like that, it needs to be changed cause the filters in places at a lot of schools are really stupid. Improvements need to be made on the systems, basically thats the direction i want to go in. im not saying all censorship is bad just internet filters need to be improved a lot.

    Censorship In Schools

    Well I agree it should be censored my main arguement for my paper is to what extent it should be sensored. It is sensored to the point where my teachers are getting fed up. My science teacher the other day tried showing us a web page on fermentation and it comes up blocked for alcohol. Also my high school has a DECA club and the New York DECA (Business Club) Web site was somehow blocked for pornagraphy. In my research paper I am going to suggest new ideas to improve the current systems. The insanely mac web page is also blocked on our web filter along with any online email systems. This is extremely upsetting when doing a school project or report and you need to register with certain web sites such as an online bibliography tool, because students need to wait until they get home to verify their registration.
  13. I am conducting this poll for my Writing For College class and need this information to help me with my research paper on Internet Censorship in schools. If possible voice your opinion on the topic as well. Thanks, Sportman

    i totally agree with you, my friend had an apus teacher gave every A's and didnt teach, had the students do textbook work and then present to the rest of the class, obviously the technique failed everyone got a's and bombed teh AP US exam, but i got C's for half the year then a B and an A and got a 4 on my ap exam so overal it pays off i agree.
