Hi Apoc, thanks for chiming in.
Heh, heh, I just upgraded my laptop to 4gigs of Ram. My graphics card is a Geforce 8600M GT with a 2.4 Ghz Intel Dual Core. I do just about everything wrong hardware wise. I even am embarrassed to say I play with a wireless connection sometimes and wireless mouse. :S As I have said, ping is about the only thing I have going for me. I have my graphics set really low. What would cause packet loss?
SD, there is most definitely a speed hack in COD 4. I have seen youtube movies of it, and I have spectated people who I strongly suspect were speeding. Now, whether PB recognizes it, I don't know. Given that moving on the Anarchy server seems SO much quicker than other servers, I think it probable that speed has been set higher server side. But this player moved faster still. Fortunately or unfortunately, that server speed is what makes it hard to judge whether someone is speed hacking.
Bravia, as I have said, camping is like sniping; only closer!
Seriously, you run really well! When I started, I knew so little, I'd play softcore servers overseas with pings in the 300s. Sheesh, I got pounded flat on a regular basis. At least you had the sense to play smart!
Anyway, thanks for the answers, y'all!
