    How much is too much for a video card?

    Where is the commandment that says you need to buy the card as soon as it gets released? Or who says you can't buy a lower price model and overclock it to the exact same speed and specs as the higher price model? When the Geforce 4 came out you could overclock a Ti-4200 to a Ti-4600...

    Game Initiative: Advertising in Games

    I remember a lot of advertisements like that in a game called Need for Speed. A racing game is a prime example of a game where you can stick advertisements almost everywhere. Since in a racing game you got highways, fake buildings, etc. In Need for Speed, they had McDonalds, Best Buys, and...

    Alert Against Phishers

    I would say that its very likely if you run a website that takes money. Any sort of website that deals with selling items would be a prime example. A hacker gains access to a list of customers, he then creates a copycat website and sends an email to every name on your customer list telling...

    How to protect yourself against hackers?

    I disagree that this is likely. Most hosts around today are after the fast bucks. You get hosting for $5 / month and its up to the user to deal with the problems.

    Using laptop as main machine?

    I seen ultra-slim laptops advertised that claim to have 8 hours battery life per single battery. With two batteries that is 16 hours of battery use before you have to replace a battery, enough for a full day of laptop use while walking around the house. I would look into one of these...

    HUGE PROBLEM! needhelp asap.

    Always backup your entire hard disk once a month. With the fast DVD writers that are available today, you could back it up pretty fast to DVD-RW. I recommend DVD-RW because this way you can re-use the same disks each month when doing the backup. It may take a little time and trouble to do...

    Corsair Unveils the World’s Fastest Production DDR2 and DDR1 RAM

    I'm very happily running on an AGP setup. Geforce 6800 GT AGP graphics card, that is overclocked to the roof. Can run any game as well as anyone using a pci-express. Seems to me that the end users pays the cost of research when they buy the first generation products that never work as...

    Alert Against Phishers

    A free service for webmasters just came out that sounds an alert when a phisher makes a copy of your website with the idea of beginning a phishing attempt. In other words, the phisher creates a web site and pretends to be the original website owner and sends people to the fake web site. This...

    Stopping Pirated software - a new approach

    Piracy isn't that bad. I watch TV shows on television and then later buy the DVD. Just because you get something for free doesn't mean you don't end up paying for it in the end. There is a game producer named Stardock which never copy protects their games. Galactic Civilizations II...

    The many uses of Dell

    I can't believe the teacher paid $120 for a memory chip. Should of had one of her students check the computer out and do the upgrade for her.

    Best Browser

    Thumbs up for Opera. Plenty of updates on a frequent enough basis. Has all the feaures I could dream of wanting. It does not drain all my system resources like other browsers I tryed. Runs smoothly.

    Wondering what you use your thumb drives for?

    I use mine for backup. Been working on writing a novel for a couple years. If I lost all that work, I would just die. I stick my thumbdrive on a keychain, and carry my novel with me at all times. Nobody is going to get it, unless it is over my dead body......

    Have you all seen this?

    Looks pretty awesome. Good reason to upgrade to the newest model graphic card. I'm waiting on Aegia to be finalized myself, then going to grab one of those graphic cards.
