    How do you play your games?

    I just wanted to see how other people play their games. Are you the type to just do the minimal that is needed to beat a game/pass a level? Or do you go all out and collect/power up/explore/leave no stone unturned/etc... I tend to be a do everything/collect everything kind of player and I...

    Exchange Admins

    I was curious to see what kind of mailbox size limits other Exchange admins have set for their users. We have ~1GB of mailbox storage limit set for each user and some are constantly hitting their limits. I would think 1GB is plenty and that people are just to lazy to clean out their...

    I still use a PS/2 Keyboard.

    I have this cheap IBM PS/2 keyboard that I still use. I love it because the feel and response is perfect for me. I've tried some newer USB keyboards but can't find one that feels as good as the IBM one. Maybe I'm just too used to how it feels or maybe I don't buy the expensive enough keyboards...

    Any one here regularly buys open box mobo's or has experience with them? I was looking at a mobo from newegg and they have an open box for like $50 less. It also says it may be missing stuff so I'm a little wary. Missing cables, I could care less as I have access to plenty of them, but if...
