    Recovering user files from a windows XP hard drive

    My mom's XP computer died (power supply gave up the ghost and killed the motherboard too). I got the old hard drive out and hooked it up to my computer (win7) to get the data off. It was only a 200ish gigabyte drive so I just copied the whole drive to a folder on my 1TB external and gave...

    Includes GGPO netcode, lobbies, DLC, lots of graphics filter options, etc. Looks to be a lot of game for the price. I wouldn't pay full price for 3S again, but hard to pass up for $15. Part 1 Part 2

    I was looking for a HD CRT tv/monitor for playing old consoles / wii and I found a few on craigslist but they were all 27 or 30 inch models. Ideally I'd like something smaller than that (20ish) so that I can set it on the corner of my desk, but I don't know if they really come any smaller...

    This showed up in my work email today. An OEM decided to submerge a computer in this "Novec" liquid that changes phase below the boiling point of water. They cooled an i3 with no heat-sink on the processor. The video is very fun. Bubbles...

    In the past Costco has bundled a PS3 with a game and bluray remote for $30 more than the MSRP for the system. The costco near me doesn't have any such bundles and they apparently don't list them on their website, but stock always varies store to store. Does anybody know if they are still...

    Touchscreen mods (L90D)

    I'm thinking of putting a touchscreen in my L90 and putting it in the kitchen. I know people have done lots of mods like this to netbooks, but I've never seen one done on a monitor like this and searching the internet wasn't particularly useful. I found DIY 19" touch panels like THIS ONE on...

    PS3 party games

    I'm looking to get a party game or two for PS3. First thoughts would be one of the rockband variants and maybe a quiz game. Something that came with it's own controllers would be ideal. Which band game (that came with controllers) would you guys recommend. I think I've seen some quiz...

    New home theater setup

    I'm in the process of researching parts for setting up my home theater. I plan to buy everything in the next two weeks or so (unless there's some crazy-hot-deal/new-thing right around the corner). As far as receivers goes I'm planning on going with the Harman/Kardon AVR-254 because I think...
