    I like the little cabinet, man. I sure could have used that before.

    I don't understand how this could baffle someone. But, given the information you provided below regarding the first Borderlands and the DLCs, I suppose it seems more plausible that the level cap would be raised in the third or fourth DLC. My logic was that it's very easy to hit level 50...

    Since they didn't raise the level cap in these two DLCs, I highly doubt they will in the next two. They would have done it by now if they were going to. That being said, I couldn't care much less. Speaking in generalities, I felt DLC1 was good, not great - DLC2 was better. I'm just a big fan...

    Those are some good points, but I hardly think that's worthy of cutting DLC development to fix. - PhysX performance is mostly okay for me, no show-stoppers here. - Drop rates do suck. I managed to find an awesome Ravager shotgun off a Super Badass yesterday -- first usable weapon in a LONG...

    Good observation, re: money. I've never gotten anything good from the slot machines aside from a nice purple gun long ago. Forgot what it was though.

    Yeah, same. The only legendary weapon I have is the Royal Deliverance. I don't use it, but I've saved it. I've pretty much sold everything else I've gotten. Although, the Bladed Emperor was good for a quick thrill.

    I personally haven't seen it. I'll enjoy my cool Adaptive shield. If I could remember what it was. lol

    Yes, I'd totally be on board with that. I'm kinda dying for more content as well. Although I wish I had some friends to help tackle some of the raid bosses.

    Yeah I saw that :) It's a nice way to give Skype the proverbial middle finger. Unfortunately, there's only one person who I know that actually has a BlackBerry since everyone else has iPhones or Android devices. But, she's in the UK, making this very useful since I won't have to call her...

    I know this is starting to evolve into a "PlayBook isn't crap like people may think" thread, but it's worth noting that pretty much no one has heard of this thing. Anyone who has ever used mine for 5 minutes instantly show praise for it. RIM did a crappy job marketing this thing on day one...

    I can understand your frustration in that regard. I'm personally getting tired of farming the Warrior for better gear -- it's feeling like he's dropping less and less loot now.

    This. QNX on these things is insanely efficient and feels very fluid. Recent updates allow Android apps to be used that can utilize the front/rear cameras now, too. The social stigma BlackBerry has nowadays really pisses me off because most people, even those in IT, haven't even heard of...

    I think they may have done that so that the CC/bee mentality isn't the end-all, be all. I dunno, hard to say.

    I'll say about this thing -- it's junk. It simply doens't work consistently with the PlayBook. I went through three of them. There are three tiny spring-loaded pins that push against the PlayBook's quickcharge contacts underneath. Those pins get bound up very quickly. 90% of the time, it...

    I've had the 32GB since day one (April 2011). The hardware quality is absolutely unmatched in my opinion. Build quality's solid, the speakers are the best I've heard on any tablet device, it's quick, crisp and responsive. Software, sure, not a LOT of apps, but the web browser is fantastic...

    I've been farming the Warrior with my lvl50 Commando -- I'm looking for a good purple AR, but it doesn't seem that I'll get a better one than what I already have. I love bladed weapons, so that's what I curently have. "Skewering Rifle" - does 5777 dmg per shot with a 44-round magazine...

    Ah okay. I have that too, which is why I asked; AT&T U-Verse uses those. They sure do limit options. Can you put in static routes on yours? I can't.

    Industrial switch to be installed on factory floor

    We used Moxa switches for all of our industrial automation equipment, pretty much solely for putting PLCs to our network. I hold them in high regard. I can't say the same for Baldor. :)

    Anyone with a broad knowledge of VOIP systems?

    I've limited experience with the Mitel system I'm now in charge of, but so far I'm reasonably impressed. It's a new thing for me -- having supported bigger systems like Avaya IP Office or Cisco CallManager. The other one I thought of is NEC Sphericall...

    Cisco Lab Assembly (don't get too excited)

    I'm resurrecting this topic because I seem to be missing something very simple routing-related. Things to note: - 2Wire set to place Cisco 1760 in DMZ+, forwarding all traffic by default to it and therefore giving it its external IP (I assume via 1-to-1 NAT?) - 2Wire and Cisco 1760...

    Seriously though, "cloud" is an irritating term to say the least. At least "offsite" sounds a little better. Is the private dropbox the only thing you were interested in?

    It was far more prevalent in the GX270's and GX280's. Yeah, there's a few of them lying around here, being used for non-production servers apparently. I'm still new here, so I don't know the purpose of them all just yet. I almost don't want to know. :p And yeah, Mitel's a nice system. I...
