My take on Party

So, everyone's complaining saying Party is doing the wrong thing. I've been playing on both Party and Empire lately, and the games on Empire are definitely worse. A lot tighter! They are running...

Re: Cloning a program

Have you thought about the ethical implications of this?

Re: Looking under the hood of a used pc.

I'm not sure how good a deal that is but don't get a FX-55, get a few steps lower. The performance difference might be 25% which is unnoticible. Instead of 60 seconds to process say a large MPEG...

Re: poker ethics: do you wonder about who you\'re taking money from?

Re: Future of RakeBack at Party Skins

That's the main point here, I think even without rakeback, people will STILL play at party cause that's where the fish are! Party raised their rake in the past, and yet it was still the best place to...

I could do this, everyone pays the $100 to me, I'd enter too. I'll "randomly" pick a winner. When I, oops, I mean, the winner, goes to the WSOP, we can all cheer him on....

Re: Do this the next time you play at Party

Re: Is there an RGP callsign, and if so, what is it?

I suspect someone is from RPG when I see them play Q5s aggressively. I've actually seen this quite often, someone will have Q5s, though sometimes it's not very aggressively played.
