    Best FedEx Delivery Ever: LCD Monitor Edition

    Dumbest thing, or in reality the truth. I work at UPS inside a hub and boxes are not conveyed on pillows or treated gently. So if you ship something, pack it like its gonna be dropped a few times.

    USB Drive / Battery Combo?

    Best smuggling device possible? Think about, you put it in some mundane device that no one cares to notice and use it to carry or steal data. Or again, use it to hide data.

    Secret Package Delivery Procedures Revealed

    lol, I've never had this problem with UPS or FedEX Air, but DHL and FedEX were notorious for this in my area. DHL would leave packages worth an easy $500 or more on my front step in my apartments without knocking and notifying me. And FedEx ground would drive by the first two attempts without...

    haha, I have one blu-ray player in my home and its collecting dust. While the Wii with netflix streaming has gotten all the attention in the 5-6months. My HTPC is loaded with DVD quality video, I never rip blu-rays either.

    The Weird Week in Review

    Depends on the state, even in the anti-gun state of Cali, you only need a handgun safety card to on a handgun, for long-guns nothing is needed. Back to the story, this isnt the first occurrence of this happening, even mythbusters did a piece on this same scenario. And you're prefectly fine as...

    What is the most efficient way to use these 3 cards? 8800gts/4890/4850

    I'd go with your first suggestion, replace 4850 with 4890 and stick the 8800 into system as a phyx card, the other 16x pci-e ( 4x electrically) will be suitable for it. And if your g/f doesnt want the upgrade, sell it or keep as a spare.

    P55 Motherboards Circa 150$

    MSI if you plan on doing CF/SLI in the future, since the Asus method does turn the second x16 slot into a 4x for the USB 3.0 support. From personal experience, it has been one of the easiest builds and overclocks and is a very solid board. Asus, if you need USB 3.0 support that dosent...

    Rare Coin Dealer Sues Google for Address Mix-Up

    Hope this guy has a nice safe, or if he lives in a free-state, google's mistake should make it easy for him to get his concealed carry permit now. Especially since this story is public now, he probably just made himself an even bigger target.

    Ok, I got an i5-750? now what?

    Yeah, I pushed mine to 4.0ghz w/ 1.301 voltage, I really havent tried to go higher, since LinX pack testing drives it to 84 C during stress testing. Prime on the other hand will be about 5 C lower, these things run hot during stress testing but even full load during gaming, I never see temps...

    Athlon II X4 620 w/ mobo $60 AR @Fry's

    We'll I just grabbed one of the deals, my Mom needed an upgrade and this fit the bill. The mobo is crap but prefect for a casual/office setting. And 2 weeks ago I thought the 620 w/ mobo at $90 was hot, but its mobo was a tad better so the price increase was justified. The only thing bad about...
