    Question about the Diablo 3 player demographic.

    The last couple posts in the Diablo 3 Release Date thread got me to wondering how big a correlation there is between "Hardcore" vs. "Non-hardcore" D2 players and their thoughts (like/hate) on the D3 beta. I'm curious if the majority of those that "hate" D3 are the hardcore players and most of...

    Help getting source IP out of system event log

    Hey folks, I figure I can't be the only one that's ever wanted to get at this information easily, so hopefully some of you can help me out. In the Security Event Log (Server 2k8 R2), for logon audit failures, it logs the source IP address in the event details. I'm trying to find an...

    Looking for "photo printing = yes & printheads = no"; does it exist?

    Looking for a color printer that is decent with photos (but that can also do general all-around color printing) that is NOT inkjet-based. From the available alternatives, color laser are good "all-around" color printers, but not generally the best for photos/images, and color dye sub printers...

    Non-violent "First Person" games?

    Anyone know if there are non-violent/kid-friendly "first person" games or game mods out there? My 5 year old sometimes sees me playing my games and wants to try/play "cool games" like dad plays. Trouble is, that they're mostly all violent shooter type games that I don't approve of him playing...

    FakeFactory Conematics Mod 10 is out - anyone have a decent download source?

    So, I see that FakeFactory's Cinematics Mod v10 came out just a couple weeks ago. Trying to find a decent download link for it, though, has been a little challenging. The official download site has a series of 50 RapidShare links. That would be painful, but doable, if not for the 2.5 minute...

    Any (non race) Driving Games?

    Why aren't there (or are there and I just don't know about them) any MS Flight Sim-style driving games out there? Many people greatly enjoy being able to virtually get in a plane and fly around the country/world - enjoying true to life looking airports, roads, and scenery. Has there ever been...

    Spore Activation Revoke Tool?

    I know that EA has said that they're working on a "revoke tool" for Spore which would basically allow you to get one of your activations back automatically when you uninstall the game (in effect you would never run out of activations due to rebuilds / reinstalls so long as you remember to...

    Decent MP3 player for cheap?

    Hey all, Haven't really been into the whole mp3 player scene before, as I didn't travel much except for in a car, where I could listen to a CD or the radio.

    What games have you pulled all-nighters playing?

    A thread over in GenMay got me to thinking about the games that I've ended up pulling all-nighters (not just late-nighters, mind you) playing - usually unintentionally and when I could ill-afford the lack of sleep. First ones to come to mind for me are Diablo (both 1 and 2), Sim City (2k and...

    temporary video card

    So my aging video card just kicked the bucket. I was running a 6800 OC (old and busted, yeah I know). Anways, I think I want to wait on the 10.1 compatible cards for my next big purchase, but that means I need something to tide me over in the mean time. I figure that I should be able to equal...

    PC Gamer LotR Online Exclusive Item Code Swap

    Why do you play video games?

    Some recent discussion in here has made me wonder what draws you guys to video games (PC, Console, or whatever). I can guess at some probable reasons, but I want to hear what you all say. Why do you play video games? For me, it's because they're fun - it's like a movie - an escape...

    What's your slot?

    With the "discussion" (and I use the term VERY loosely) going on in the other thread, I thought I'd see if we can get a count of what people are actually running in their main rig RIGHT NOW. Not next week, last week, or 2 months from Have at. I think this'll be interesting.
