    Mobile Web Version?

    As I sit here surfing the forum on my Treo 700w, I can't help but wonder if there is a mobile web version available? I've tried searching for something but haven't had any luck. Is there such a thing or will there be in the future? If not, is there a portal site out there I can go through...

    IDE PCI Controller, SATA on Mobo

    My custom built died and I really didn't have time to wait for parts or fix it (don't know what's not working in it yet). I went out and bought an HP 1640n. It doesn't have IDE on the mobo, only SATA. Running a 250gb on that. I put a CMD-648 PCI Controller in to hook up my hard drives to...

    I found some great old baby photos of my wife that I want to scan and archive. Perhaps even have some larger prints made. And of course put them on our website ;) I'm not really sure what to look for in scanners. I haven't bought one since 2000, and I'm sure the technology has advanced...
