Restoring old stuff - Javapad

Apparently we get a LOT of hits for Javapad so I wanted to go ahead and repost it for everyone who wanted to grab it. It's attached to this post.

Why is Uwe Boll still allowed to direct films....?

I've never played one single Bloodrayne game... I'll be honest about that. So I cannot be sure about many things regarding the new Bloodrayne trailer. I can however be sure that Uwe Boll is going to kill this movie franchise like he's kill so many others. I know Meatloaf was great in Fight Club, but come on when he's one of the leads in the credits that you're touting... well god help you.

x64 Support Only 32-bits Short

Well having been fed up with a reoccurring problem that nobody could locate an easy fix to gave me reason to nuke MCE 2k5 and replace with a shiney new edition of XP Professional x64.
