Went looking for pants, came up empty handed. I just wanted one pair of no-frills cargo pants. Utilitarian fashion is Good.

Accompanied Ryan to CompUSA to buy a vidcap card. There were no Hauppauge cards, so he bought an ATI card. It was a brand name I recognized, I figured, how could it go wrong?

It went wrong.

I think it has something to do with overlay support. Of course, ATI says that it works with all nvidia cards, and they haven't written any driver upgrades ever.

So, now I know not to buy ATI products.

Heh. First thing I thought when you said "ATI" is "he's gonna have a problem". ATI is a fucking evil brand, stay away from it at all costs!
