    Using google DNS - but occasionally getting TWC DNSsearch.com results

    1) Good point 2) Has other benefits too, but I imagine it comes at additional cost and speed sacrifices 3) Best option, too bad it's taken away from most US consumers. Like most, I have one option for cable and DSL options are substantially slower. 4) Hear, hear. Definitely seems annoying...

    Using google DNS - but occasionally getting TWC DNSsearch.com results

    I recently mistyped a domain and received the TWC hijacked search page I hadn't seen in a long while. I had fixed this by updating my router settings to use google DNS. I figured the router may have reverted default settings somehow. I checked my router and it's set correctly to use google DNS...

    High quality silent or clickless mouse

    A few months ago I realized the clicking from my mouse (logitech performance mouse mx) was annoying me, since then I've been searching online and I can't really find a high quality silent or clickless mouse available anywhere. I purchased SM-5000B and SM-8000B shown at...

    Dell U2711

    Does anyone have a u2711 disassemble walk through or guide? I tried googling for it and don't see one. My monitor either has left side of the screen screw up or doesn't display at all unless i tap on the back between the center and left side (about 1/3rd the way). I'm guessing something isn't...

    8800GTS won't bring dual monitors back from timeout

    I have an nVidia 8800GTS connected to two monitors running in extended display mode with 20 min timeout to turn monitors off. Occasionally, when I move the mouse/press keys on the keyboard to bring it back it only brings back the secondary monitor, leaving the other one off. Turning off and on...

    Laser eye surgery and gaming

    Like you said, it's my eyes I'm talking about so I would like to know how it's going to affect any part of my life before going for it, even the minor parts like gaming. I'm not a hardcore gamer, when I'm into a game I'll play 3-5 hours a week, when there is no game I like there will be...

    Laser eye surgery and gaming

    I decided to get laser eye surgery and I'm going to go for in the next couple of months. I just wanted to see if there were any gamers that did it and what their experience has been. Does affect gaming at all? One issue I have right now is some (very few) games really tire out my eyes...

    Is my wii gonna die?

    I just reset it and nothing is wrong, yaay. And the reason for the post was really in hopes of a response saying "hold A and 2 at the same time to cancel the update process" or such.

    Is my wii gonna die?

    Last night when I came home I noticed the wii's optical drive was pulsating blue, i thought this meant nintendo had either sent something or some sort of an update to my wii, so i turned it on and i didn't notice any changes, i saw some articles about the weather channel so i went to it and it...

    Component Switch

    I'm interested in a component switch as well (my tv only has 3 ports) as well, and this seems ideal for me. What does IR Learning mean? If I had to guess I'd say it learns the signal source change from your other controller... which would be awesome, but the part that confuses me is when...

    MX1000 Middle Mouse Button... breaks...

    I thought I was the only one! I've had 2 MX1000's middle mouse buttons break and I'm on my third MX1000... it still scrolls, but it no longer function as a button. The good part is logitech will replace it for free if you are under warranty.

    Microsoft Natural Ergonomic 4000

    It's the best keyboard ever made. The only change I would like is to make the keyboard a bit more customizeable - zoom slider is USELESS, it would be better if it would scroll up/down (page or even x lines). Also, I would have appreciated a track forward/track backward button as well.

    Has anyone used GameFly?

    It's been a while since i tried them but I wasn't too satisfied. They have (had? maybe they added some more) only one distribution center in the west coast and things would take 3-5 days to get from them to me or the other way around. So if I sent something on Monday they wouldn't get it...

    Stay away from the A8N32-SLI

    Intel employee purchases

    I went to visit my cousin who is an engineer of some sort at intel and apparently she can get a nice discount for family members on the core 2 duos. The prices were around 40-50% less than retail for processors. I was torn between the choices but I ordered an E6700 for 295.32 after shipping &...

    HD - The mistake Nintendo avoided or the one that Sony got right?

    I think they are both wrong. Nintendo is aiming too low (in hardware specs) and sony is aiming too high (in hardware specs). I hate to say MS got it right, but it seems they did. But I'm still rooting for Nintnedo (as long as games don't look like complete ass.)

    Using a 23" apple cinema display w/ ADC on a PC

    A coworker quit and I have my eye on his monitor (his position isn't being replaced), but he was a mac guy and I'm a pc guy and his display has an ADC connector which also carries power and USB info. I don't really care for the USB, but I don't think DVI can power a 23" screen. I found an ADC...
