    Replacement for IP35-E

    I've got an Abit IP35-E that crapped out on me. I was kind of expecting to get some new hardware later this year but I'm not quite ready to go whole hog just yet. So I'm looking for a replacement motherboard to hold me over for a while. I've got a E4400 Allendale and four sticks of 800 MHz...

    I'm at wit's end - Windows 7 File Sharing

    I'm running the Windows 7 RC on my desktop machine and I just want to share a folder on my network without requiring login credentials every time. I've tried everything I can think of and subsequent searching provides no help. I set the sharing and security permissions to allow access to...

    Anyone have a Westinghouse LCM22W3?

    So Target has a LCM22W3 on sale next week for $167. I'm considering going out today and investigating the possibility of buying it now and getting it adjusted on Friday. Any glaring problems with this monitor? For less than two-hundred bones I can't imagine it's exactly top of the line, but...

    ATI Driver Font issue

    So I just got a bunch of new hardware. I've got an X1950. It's the first ATI card I've used and I'm having some rather annoying issues with it. At first, I installed just the regular drivers but that wouldn't let me use a resolution greater than 1600 x 1200 without scrolling. So I installed the...

    PCI-E Power for the IP35

    I just got new hardware and I'm putting it all together. It's been a long time since I've assembled a machine so I'm a bit disoriented about some of this newfangled equipment (Evidently, CPU's don't come with pins anymore. Wild.). So anyway the Abit IP35 has a regular peripheral molex...

    PC Games of the past five years?

    So, my current machine is limping along on mostly circa-2000 and hand-me-down hardware, so I've missed most of the PC titles that have come out in the last several years. I've got boxes of shiny new hardware winging their way to me as I type, so it's about time to catch up. I intend to pick...

    X1950: Best power for the dollar?

    So I've been out of the loop for quite some time now and I'm putting together a new system. Just about everything I read points to the X1950 (I'm looking at the Pro) as the go-to card. So near as I can tell, there really isn't anything worth spending the money on between it and the 8800's. Am...

    A little help?

    Hello everybody. I'm a returning [H] member from way back. I'm currently running on some really old hardware and I've recently come into a bit of extra money so I've decided to spend a little to upgrade my machine. I've been out of the loop so long, though, that I have no idea of where to start...

    Where to find carbon fiber cloth

    I was wondering if someone could help me out. I've got a project I'd like to use some carbon fiber for but I'm at a loss as to where I can get ahold of some. I remember finding a link to a place that sold expired aerospace carbon fiber and kevlar really cheaply. It was posted in a thread here...

    Forza Motorsport Delayed

    So with GT4 delayed, it looks like the pressure was off of the Forza guys so they decided to push their own game back.

    Turning off formatting in Word

    How do you make Word not so goddamned smart? I want to turn off all of that autoformat bullshit. But even after unchecking pretty much every box in the autoformat dialog it still can't understand if I just want to put tab spacing in. How do I make it so it just does what I tell it and stops...

    Gran Turismo 4 delayed AGAIN

    This just ruined my day. I was really looking forward to this one. Forget Halo 2. Forget Half Life. Just gimme my GT4. But no. They have to go and push it back as far as March. Dammit.

    iPod/iTunes Dilemma

    I've got an iPod on it's way to me via a certain free iPod program that I'm sure you're all familiar with. Anyway. In preparation, I went and got iTunes in order to acquant myself with it so I'm ready when it gets here. The trouble is, I really don't care for it. I use Winamp for managing my...

    Interesting Windows Security Question

    A friend of mine and I were discussing the Windows Baseline Security Analyzer and how it can tell you how many users have weak passwords. The question we couldn't figure out was, how does one user have enough access to determine that? Shouldn't the passwords be encypted even to Administrators...

    Casio QV-R40

    So a buddy of mine just picked one up. It's a really impressive camera for $200. Four megapixels, lots of macros, manual settings for everything, what I understand is the lowest shutter-delay available... and it takes good pictures. Anyone else have/tried one? It's probably the best camera I've...

    Help a brother out

    In the spirit of community, I have a request. My family lost a dog yesterday. If any [H] members are in Peoria, Illinois, I'd ask you keep an eye out for a white greyhound with a black head and large black spots. He should have a red collar and red leash on. He's very scared so if you find him...

    So Crystal Chronicles is tremendous...

    A buddy of mine imported Crystal Chronicles a few months ago and I finally got to play some four-player. All I have to say is, it's awesome despite not knowing much of how it worked. It takes a little while to get the hang of and we figured out most of the important menus by trial and error, but...
