    When should you buy another projector bulb ?

    My $0.02 is look at your bulb usage. If it looks like your bulb is going to go 5+ years...then just don't buy one IMO. Better chance you will have access to a better PJ in that timeframe and would be better off just buying a new PJ. However, if it looks like you will burn it out in...

    No. Not in your case. A projector operating @ 75" is a poor choice since you need to deal with other list of issues (light control, ceiling mounting, additional audio, etc). If you were talking about a wall that could handle 100"+ screen and could be light controlled, etc..that is another...

    Capcom hit by ransomware attack, is reportedly being extorted for $11 million

    Considering what happened to Garmin...I am not surprised this happened again. Considering when a warning shot like that gets fired, I thought most bigger entitles would have gotten their crap together but said "nay". Long live greed.

    How Much Voltage is Too Much Voltage?

    Call your local utility. Sometimes loads change and voltages can shift and they need to re-balance. Not a big deal.

    FF VII: Remake. New news/teaser trailer

    I did a play through of the original 7 just a month ago...and yes, it was that linear; midgard was always on rails IMO...and still is. As for textures...I think this might have been the price for a perfectly buttery smooth game the whole time IMO while on ancient equipment. I never saw a FPS...

    Gamestop won't close it's doors

    Between the people who don't care if people die because it might inconvenience their lives (what you are indicating) and the people who think the world is ending...somewhere, in there, is the truth. BTW..coronavirus (COVID-19) is a variant of SARS. It is a nasty little bugger (much worse than...

    Just got my first projector - Is this decent?

    This really needs to be said about projectors...if you are happy with it then it is a good purchase. The moment you ask for an opinion on something you bought you are asking to seed doubt in your mind which will ruin the experience. Every time I buy a new projector (4 so far in my life) I...

    Buy 2080Ti now, or wait for holidays?

    nVidia right now is in the drivers seat. However I do no think they are sitting idle. I would not be surprised if there is not significant ray tracing efforts going on. While their first debut was not all unicorn and was not something that made me say "well, that is dumb". I...

    Astrophysicist Says He Knows How to Build a Time Machine

    The thing is...if he could even pull off a 100 ms, that would be enough to be the richest person in the world in the span of a few days via the stock markets.

    Thurrott: Minecraft Is Getting a Whole New Look With Ray Tracing Support

    Yes and might be a "long game" kind of thing. Right now the DEV's have gotten really good and non RTX stuff with a series of very clever substitutes. The gap between an RTX card that can surpass that at the same price point just isn't reasonable at this point. Hell...doom did...

    Scientists develop device to detect bacteria in minutes, not days

    I amazed her that the people against this don't realize that electron microscopes for this level of testing are benchtop sized. This is not DOA....far from it.

    Bounty Hunters Can Get Phone Locations for $300

    You aren't being honest. Cops are paid bounty hunters as well, they just paid if they only do their job "half right" or "not at all". Cops aren't all perfect either..there are shit bags there too. So lets use your logic and throw them out as well, who needs cops. As for throwing out the...

    Bounty Hunters Can Get Phone Locations for $300

    You didn't read the article did you? The issue isn't the bondsman who do have a legal right to track people is the bondsman who are abusing their privldeges for personal profit. This is no different than a cop using is squad car to get around waiting for a red right.

    Toyota Unveils Guardian System That Can Make Decisions on the Fly to Avoid Accidents

    Dude..this the internet. If it is digital or digitized and it can be used as evidence and facts regardless of legitimacy or relevancy to current standards. The issue with that crash wasn't that it was how Airbus responded to it. Airbus has a really bad habit of not...
