I subscribe to mlb.tv, and watch a lot of baseball games live on the web. I was wondering if there was anything that I could do on my end to make the streaming smoother. The streaming this year has been really jerky, with a lot of pauses that can last for 3-5 seconds. I know a lot of it has to do with bandwidth (I have BellSouth's fastest DSL package), but I was wondering if there was anything I could do hardware wise to improve it. I have a Pentium 4, 1.8 Ghz, with 512 MB of RAM running XP Home SP2. 5 GB out of 19 Free. I believe I have a sound card, but I don't have a video card. I have asked some people who are more techie than I, and they have said that a video card wouldn't help me that much if at all. Does anyone have any ideas as to what could help me?
Anyone know whether the new Miniputt game is beatable? I got a perfect score (18) in Miniputt 1, but so far have not been able to break 27 in the 2nd incarnation of this clever little flash game, which can be found at http://www.addictinggames.
