    PC/360 Compatible Racing Wheel

    I'm ruthlessly addicted to racing games and want to get a decent wheel setup to play them with. Most of my games are on the PC, but in the near future I may pick up a 360 and Forza 3. What I'm looking for is a wheel thats compatible with both. I was looking at the 360 Wireless Racing Wheel...

    Looking for a good RPG

    What good RPGs are out these days? I haven't been in the gaming scene for quite a while now, but I've been itching to get into a good RPG. I've looked around a bit, but nothing quite strikes my fancy from what I've seen. Anyone know of something decent that'll run on my laptop? 1.6 Turion X2...

    Free - Get it out of my house

    I'm trying to get rid of a shit load of accumulated junk. Most of it is trash, but I've got a few things someone might be interested in. I'll ship the processors all at my expense. Found a NetGear 4 port 10baseT hub, cost of shipping gets it. Might have some RAM too, but I've got to clean...

    Streaming Audio Server

    I'm looking to set up a streaming audio server so I can listen to my music at work as my MP3 player is too small. I've been looking up a few things and searching around a bit but haven't found anything that fit my requirements. I'd like to be able to view all my songs in a playlist, much...

    Is it dead?

    About and hour ago, my computer was running just fine, albeit a little loud. Being that temperatures are dropping and my average case temps have been about 20C (its usually about 60F in my house, just the way I like) I decided to take a couple of the fans out. I had 4 front intake, and 2 rear...

    Just a small borg...

    Been talking with the IT at my school, and the principal, and I've got permission to b0rg the school. I've still got to go around and install the client on all the computers and all that, but its worth it. Two labs are full of IBM Netvistas with 2.4 P4s, 256MB of RAM. Another lab with another...

    COD: Missing Files

    A friend of mine got bored with COD and gave his copy to me. It installed fine, no problems anywhere. Then I went to start the game, and the problems started. The game closed and gave an error message saying something to the effect of 17 sound files were either missing or in a bad format, then...

    AcBel API2PC23

    I was just given a pair of these and the only info I can get about them, is whats on the label. I've searched google and here and the only thing I can find about the company is that they're OEM for IBM and Cooler Master. I was wondering whether they're worth selling them, or just throwing...

    Time for round two

    So, I was looking through some old directories and clearing them out, when I came across some familiar posters. There were many left unfinished, so I took the time to complete a few. Pics found here.

    EM3 Problem

    I've been using EM3 to monitor the progress of my boxen, and last night I noticed a problem after updating to the most recent version. My P3 had been working on a p1412_polyQ36 in water, and all was going well. But EM3 reported the protein had 400 frames, when it only had 100. When the WU was...

    This doesn't seem right...45C Idle temps

    When I got home today I found my computers off, apparently the power went out today. When I turned then on, my computer was randomly rebooting from overheating. When I left this morning I had load temps of 43-46C, now at idle temps are a steady 45C. Ambient case temps are 34C. First thing I...

    Nostalgic Gaming

    Anyone ever do this? A friend of mine gave me his old PS1 a few days ago, with a few games, and ever since I haven't stopped playing it. I've been playing a lot of Gran Turismo 2 and am working my way up. Currently have all the National races complete, and I'm working through the Rally Races...

    SMT/Thru-Hole/Component ID

    I know how to solder, but I've never heard this lingo before. What are they and how do I do it? I'd imagine its not all that difficult, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

    Its about time

    I started folding late last August when relic gave me a processor. Its taken until February to make it to the big 5K, and I'm happy. The P3 800 he gave me supplied 4000 of the 5000, my A64 filled in the rest. The old girl is still serving me proudly as my new server.

    Attack of the P1801s!

    It seems as though the last 6 or so WUs I've recieved have been p1801_Collagen_PPG10_refolding. If they're so important that I must be flooded with them, then the least Stanford could do is raise the point value. 66 points? Come'on, give me some juicy 200 pointers. Any one else got any of...

    Temps on the rise

    I've got a A64 2800+ with stock HSF and Arctic Silver. The problem is, my temps are constantly on the rise. My computer is always under load with F@H running, but I'd have thought the temps would have stopped rising by this point. The other day, after having my computer on for 3 days straight...

    Data Recovery

    I screwed up again. Yesterday I finally got all the parts needed to build my A64 rig, so I was quite happy. In my haste to upgrade, I forgot to back up all the necessary files. I forgot to backup my moms email from OE, and my Firefox bookmarks, which I desperately need back. I have no idea...

    PSU Plug Mod

    I have an older PSU from a Pentium 1 machine. I don't know what the name for it is, but it doesn't have the same type of plug that goes into the motherboard as what we use now. Would it be possible to mod it so that it can be used on a standard motherboard. If so, how? Hopefully someone...

    These Parts, How Much?

    I've run into a small bit of money recently, that might be able to turn me a small profit. I'm considering all my options before I do anything with it. One option is selling most of my main machine. I've been having problems with pricing though. I'm not sure as to how much a computer like this...

    So, The Temps Are Dropping

    My processor is finally able to keep a decent enough temp to give me some headroom to overclock.

    Don't ask me how, because I dont know, but Windows managed to break itself. Now it may seem strange to a few of you, implausible as it sounds, but I DID NOT BREAK IT. For once I was not the cause of a Windows failure. On to the story. I was playing a game today, every thing was fine. My mom...

    Website Overhaul

    The company my mom works for has stepped into the digital age and is now requiring a website. The new version was put up a short while ago and quite frankly it sucks. The guy building it does not have the graphics ability to make it professional looking, which I'm told he admits (he's the...
