    USB only power strip? How come nobody makes one?

    I'm 27643836% with you. My gut is telling me that it's time to build one. My main gripe is all we want to charge is our (insert flame war comment) Apple gear and I'd like to use our chargers for travel use. Bad news is from my research that the/our Apple gear has some pretty specific...

    Getting a XBOX 360...and want to prep it for longevity

    I do plan on installing the games to the HDD, especially since the unit as a whole apparently runs quieter when going from the HDD, and as it goes for all things running off of a drive, I assume things will load a bit quicker. I am down for modding the thing, I like that idea of adding RAM...

    Getting a XBOX 360...and want to prep it for longevity

    I assume that Microsoft will send me something in the mail to do that?

    Getting a XBOX 360...and want to prep it for longevity

    Do you have to have a receipt for the 3 year warranty or is it based off of manufactured date?

    Getting a XBOX 360...and want to prep it for longevity

    The other day I ordered a 360 from Microsoft ExpertZone and I'm going to assume it's not a Jasper chipset. I also have ordered another shell off of eBay so I can paint the shell to match my PS3 (I don't think white is going to cut it for me). At any rate, I'm going to have the bastard open...

    Strange PC behavior....randomly shuts off

    Randomly the other day, my PC just shut off my itself. I dunno what the hell happened, it wasn't power outage related. So I do the normal troubleshooting, taking everything down to a bare bones system (mobo, cpu, video, memory) and it seems to work. As soon as I add any hard drives the system...

    MSDN Disc says it's bootable, and has ISO's, but doesn neither

    MSDN Disc says it's bootable, and has ISO's, but doesn neither

    I have a Win2K3 STD R2 box that I want to do some testing on, and I can't get a damn CD-R to boot. It specifically states on the DVD that it itself is bootable, and would give me some sort of menu and I could install the OS from there. The other thing is that there are supposed to be ISO's...
