Just out of curiosity, how much did that cost you?

Mostly on a 2.2Ghz x86_64 with 256meg Nvidia 5700 running Gentoo. Sometimes on the server machine, 32bit 2Ghz Athlon with 128 meg NV FX5500 running FC3, and sometimes on one of the 3.4ghz P4s with the same gfx card and os's as above, but the Intel machines suck compared to the AMD64, and they cost more.

You can use MAMP or do it the old fashion way.

Egh, I said I wasn't computer knowledgable, but here's what I know....

It's an Apple PowerMac G4 (desktop) running the Panther version of Mac OS X. And it has a cool black and silver Samsung CRT monitor. What kind of monitor is it? No clue.

My computer? My computer is awesome. You see, it can run BZflag... case closed (no pun intended).

XP2000+, some reasonable amount of RAM, 160 gb hard drive... the normal stuff.
Radeon 7200 32m... 21" sony profeesional tube, because lots of screen space is always good. Speakers the size of small dressers.

how do you deal with tank control on the laptop? i've seen people play bz on the touchpad, but I can't do that. i need to use a real mouse or a trackball. i could play on an eraser head, except that mine would develop a memory and zoom off into the middle of nowhere.
