    S.T.A.L.K.E.R : Lost Alpha news

    I am skeptical that it was "leaked" by anyone outside of the dev team. This thing was never likely to see the light of day as anofficial release given the whole GSC/Stalker licensing debacle, so this is simply a good excuse.

    That's not even the issue. The issue is that a persistent internet connection is REQUIRED to play even the offline, single-player game. I've avoided FC3 because of uplay and will continue to do so for this reason.

    Intel Makes It Easier To Remotely Troubleshoot Multiple Datacenter Devices

    You'd have iLO for that 580, so it's not much good for anything. If you had to have a centralized management console and didn't have anything better, I'd imagine this is fine. I'm sure once people start using the SDK it'll gain viability. Hard for me to justify ~$100 per system extra where I...

    Intel Makes It Easier To Remotely Troubleshoot Multiple Datacenter Devices

    APC has been offering this for a while based on Intel's system as a component of Data Center Operation. It's a ridiculous per-system cost, and since most modern systems have some sort of management interface not very useful, imo

    Black Friday - what did you get?

    Snagged a ladder (yay!), Skyrim and I also impulse-bought a Chromecast.

    Any LTC miners out there willing to answer some questions?

    You hopefully got or found out the answer to this, but GPUs are massively more capable than CPUs for mining litecoin.

    War Thunder Lets the [H] Wing

    CptVague. Long-time sim flyer myself. I'm hardly ever on, but I'd be happy to play with like-minded people.

    App Turns Old iPhones, iPads into a Home Security System

    I have an old 3GS I've been looking to re-use. This seems like it'll fit the bill.

    Free EA Games (Origin/Steam redemption)

    I'd love this if you still have the key and wouldn't mind sending it to me.

    California May Issue Digital License Plates

    I'm sorry but you would more than likely lack the ability and/or means to made said modifications. You would also more than likely be fined or jailed for tampering with the device. Sorry.

    A new stalker ?

    I will give this a shot, thanks for making me aware of this one. I really enjoy lots about Clear Sky. Could do without Complete though.

    A new stalker ?

    You've clearly never played AMK or People Soup. AMK is like Oblivion Lost with more content. People Soup is unfiltered Ukrainian/Russian insanity. SGM for Call of Pripyat is similarly insane and brutal. One of the reasons S.T.A.L.K.E.R. didn't have a bevy of mods was because the structure of...

    A mouse that's resistant towards the entropic decay that occurs with Logitech?

    More anecdotal experience here, but these Man-Machine mice do not hold up to much abuse, at least not in the hospital environment I've seen them used in. The coating tears fairly easily and they don't survive drops well.

    What kind of a gamer are you?

    I play pretty much anything, though as of late it's been a lot of platformers and some FPS stuff. Currently working through my backlog of games with Metro 2033. I will say that I will sometimes intentionally install and play through a game I know to be flawed, buggy or just plain bad and enjoy...
