    Ratpadz XT

    Just remember that Kyle was able to do it with knowledge of the plastics industry. If you could find out what that plastic is, it could be purchased and used in the same way by the sheet.

    SilverStone Technology 550 Watt 80 Plus Bronze ET550-B ($28.99 shipped)

    I've used one for a basic build. Not too shabby for the money!

    I had forgotten about this game. I ended up picking it up!

    [Epic] 15 Days of Christmas Freebies (12/30=three Tomb Raider games, until 1/6 8AM PST)

    (DEAD) Milwaukee SHOCKWAVE Impact Duty Alloy Steel Drill and Screw Driver Bit Set (192-Piece) $43.99

    I bit and it shipped quick! I thought the fact that they all look like a tool case was cool and then was really tickled to see the one box had a mini packout in it with the three most common bits used! It's worth the $43. For the free shipping I just added some $6.99 random orbital discs that I...

    Visiontek Mystery Box ( $5, $10, $20, $50 *Premium GPU?* )

    I'd take the stick of RAM! Be great for a firewall desktop box. Even the DDR3 8GB, I have a Lenovo that a slot died on the mobo.

    (DEAD) Black Mesa [Steam] $4.99

    Thank you OP! I also took the plunge and grabbed a copy. I never played the original all the way through, but I always wanted to finish it. Hopefully I can now!

    Dewalt Xtreme Brushless 1/4 Impact driver combo. $30 off @Lowes=$89

    I gotta chime in here really quick. I have the 12V DeWalt screwdriver at home along with the 12V impact. For round the house stuff it works GREAT! I use the screwdriver all the time for stuff; built shelves and a small bookcase last spring because I had the wood around and wanted to utilize it...

    CDW Outlet Finds

    As a "For Instance", genuine Liebert/Pactiv batteries are usually a specific part number of CSB batteries. I can buy the cheapies but the line interactive 2000VA units eat them like candy and they swell to the point you sometimes are putting scary amounts of pressure on them trying to remove the...

    Alphacool Eiskoffer Lucky Draw

    Last time I thought about water cooling a PC I was going to use copper piping! This looks pretty neat!

    15 Gadgets That Failed to Soar

    I actually still carry my 80GB Zune player. It always had better audio quality than the iPod of the day and that's what mattered to me. If it had played FLAK, it would have been killer.

    PlayStation Announces Its First Original Series

    I loved the comic, but I don't own a Playstation. Here's to hoping it becomes available in... um... other formats.

    Technology Gone Wrong: The Budweiser Buddy Cup

    Quite true. Beer was made because no one trusted the water; no one knew what microbes were before the invention of the microscope. Every town had a brewery and many people at home brewed their own beer for something safe to drink. It was considered nourishment. In fact, back then barley was VERY...

    Technology Gone Wrong: The Budweiser Buddy Cup

    Epic haul! :eek: I was unable to get tix this year, but we went last year, and golden tixed to boot in the tragically shitty 5pm - 7pm line. I am interested to know how the new venue change made the day, but that's OT and better off in PM or EM; at least the weather was also epic for you! I...

    Technology Gone Wrong: The Budweiser Buddy Cup

    LOL! Well, my motto is "To Each His Own" and it's hard to break a habit when the marketing machine is telling you that you absolutely should be buying their beer. It's why I don't watch TV much; too many stupid things to be sensible and it makes people insipid. True confession? I keep Miller...

    Technology Gone Wrong: The Budweiser Buddy Cup

    I wouldn't put it past them at all. An RFID chip that can be excited by a tiny battery and communicate over bluetooth once would be all that was necessary, but this does look far fetched. However, did you see the earlier link where someone stated that each like was worth far more than I care to...

    SeaSonic M12II Power Supply Lucky Draw

    I usually use rebranded Seasonic's, but I have bought three of the X650's and I really liked them; fully modular is very nice in a video editor build, as I can add cables when needed for more hard drives.

    AMD Radeon HD 7970 CrossFire Bundle Lucky Draw

    Love my 6970; only wish I had two! I like the newer series lower power draw, and the new drivers are way better it seems. Thanks AMD!

    [NewEgg 48hr Deal] WD Green WD20EARX 2TB 6.0Gb/s $90 Expires 12AM 10/25

    I've been in the market for drives again for a non-RAID WHS 2011 setup and I honestly get scared reading the NE feedback for the Reds too. I think I am going to have to do some more reading before I trust one of them...... :mad:

    Should Websites Charge To Process Copyright Takedowns?

    I think they should pay a nominal fee also, make them actually research what they are taking down hopefully. Might actually mean a little more equality in copyright vs free speech issues instead of shoot first, ask questions later.

    Samsung Spintpoint F3 1TB $80

    That's LOL! I remember people used to say "Don't buy Maxtor, they are junk!" Now Maxtor=Seagate=Samsung! This is genuinely hilarious. The only people I would choose to believe is someone using consumer drives by the thousands in a 24x7 environment for apples to apples comparisons.

    Intel Launching Ivy Bridge Desktop Processors This Week?

    TBH, I don't see that table as being anywhere near accurate, but I would love to be proven wrong. There is no flagship $1000 proc for review sites to ogle (Even SB-E got that, natch) and the pricing scheme is too compressed. I'm calling BS until I see them on the market at those prices.

    I love my monoprice earbuds! Monoprice Enhanced Bass earbuds My wife lost my Zune buds, and I bought these instead of $20 and up replacements. Couldn't be happier. Hope someone got in on this deal!

    Corsair "Barebones" Christmas Giveaway!

    I like Corsair because they have great products at competitive or advantageous pricing and their cases are very sexy. The best thing I can say about their customer service is that I have never had to talk to them! :D That's a great thing!

    Rosewill BRONZE Series RBR1000-M 1000W Continuous@40°C, 80Plus Bronze Certified $60A

    I don't think you will win these guys over unless you buy one yourself and rip it open to prove it will do the business. On that note, anyone consider buying one to send to JonnyGuru to see if they can release the magic smoke? If you are so sure it will be blown, this should make you happy if...

    Portal 2 "Complete Pack Part 2" Level 50 bundle, 9.99

    Umm, many of us already paid for TF2 in the Orange box a loooooooonng time ago, so it's not like it's a NEW game for free. They gave it away because they have an in game method of making money now to counter declining sales of the game. Too cheap to buy the game \= too cheap to buy in game swag.

    Seasonic Platinum-1000 Drawing

    Bought or recommended Seasonic branded or sourced power supplies in almost all my builds, including the last three identical video editor builds. All but one of my home machines has a seasonic in it, the last might be one but I can't tell. One of the best power supply makers out there, and the...

    The Totally Awesome Directron Drawing!

    Best bang for the buck ever, first to a universal 64 bit implementation, and first on die memory controller were all awesome. I still have my Athlon XP 2500+ at home on the Abit NF-7S and I fired it up the other day just to see it run! The old Athlon 64 3000+ is still kicking away for my friend too.

    XFX Black Edition PSU Drawing!

    I think the power regulation is the best aspect, that and I think my Seasonic based PCP&C is starting to go (cap whine...)! :mad: Plus it would be nice to step up a notch with my new power supply, and I definitely think this would be a step up!

    XFX Radeon HD 6990 Drawing!

    I'm glad XFX came over to the red side and gave us that great warranty. As far as the card goes, what's not to like about dual GPU's? ;)

    KÜHLER as it Gets! - Antec Big [H] Giveaway!

    Rockin the Earthwatts in all my latest computer builds for others, as they are great Seasonic sourced units. I like these sealed liquid systems for their performance and ease of use. Also like the reviews showing your fans are quiet.

    3 Enermax SpineRex Chassis Up for Grabs

    Cutouts for cable management and dust filters. Would be a great HPC/server case if they offered hot swaps for the bays as options.
