    Steam Weekend Deal: All 3 Hitman games for $10

    I doubt it is the band themselves, since Clutch are cool dudes, but the record label they were on at the time (Atlantic) causing the hold up. Sucks that the song won't be in there if they release it since it is probably my favorite song they've done.

    Post your monthly bandwidth usage

    The 14th and 15th are pretty much blank because some genius decided it was a great idea to cut a tree down and drop it on the main cable box for our neighborhood. Here's hoping AT&T or Verizon come to my town so I can get away from this retarded Comcast cap I go over every month.

    [WARM] Coolermaster 690 $73 shipped

    It was $30 last year but hasn't been anywhere near that for months and months, so this is a decent/good deal if you want this case.

    Microsoft Live Club

    I just checked my live account and they shipped my X-Box 360 Controller to me. It should be here tomorrow from UPS. Sweet!

    Post your UPS,surge protection, battery backup

    I like it, the LCD is pretty useful. You don't have to turn your computer on and look at the Powerchute software to get information like: load %, how many watts your system is pulling, and input & output voltage. It has 2 or 3 other things it displays on the lcd you can cycle through, but I've...

    Post your UPS,surge protection, battery backup

    APC Back-UPS XS 1300 I have a dead Belkin 1500va sitting here next to me that is a POS and couldn't take more then 40% load when it worked. No more Belkin UPS for me ever again, APC from here on out.

    I just ordered my controller after 5.5 days, so hopefully I will get one and receive it before 2009. :)

    Microsoft Live Club

    I hadn't seen anything clearing up if you could only do the 1000 points once or every day with Chicktionary, but found out you could yesterday. So in another 4 days I'll be ordering my controller, which hopefully I will get.

    Microsoft Live Club

    I somehow missed this Live thing originally. Is it even worth starting now? I got my 1000 points doing Chicktionary tonight, and just want to get a 360 Controller or Zune. How long would it take to do those now?

    Minimum upgrade for 1080p

    Things have gotten much better with compatibility in the past few months as people have figured out the correct settings to get hardware acceleration enabled on their encodes.

    Minimum upgrade for 1080p

    The 8500gt is able to do h264 hardware decoding so that might fix the problem, even though a newer processor/ram/mobo wouldn't be bad either. CoreAVC isn't that great in my opinion when compared to Cyberlink's decoder, so try to get that if you can. What I've found that works for me for hardware...
