    Show in GAL but Hide in Sharepoint?

    Our corporate sharepoint site is linked to AD and the GAL in terms of how it creates it's employee directory. If you hide an employee in Exchange 2012 in the global address list, they will be hidden from our Sharepoint intranet site and vice-versa. Anybody know of a way to show users in...

    Post your "Ghetto Mod" pics

    Silver thing is the heatsink. You can tell by the big fins to dissipate heat. You must have touched something else or pushed something else carrying power into the heatsink causing it to shock you. Plugging in a power supply and then opening it up and poking and prodding in it is kind of...

    Bioware founders leaving the company?

    I have family in the company. Dragon Age: Origins was not expected to be a success. They thought that the days of PC gaming were over and they invested 7 years into DAO and never thought it would be a hit as it turned out to be. When that happened, and it coincided with EA's takeover (near...

    The New PS3

    I'll buy the 16GB model if it's cheap like $99 cheap. I'll use it to play Rocksmith (I use it as my amp/effects box), watch Netflix, and buy Sega Classics and TurboGrafx 16 games from PSN (better than roms). I've got a 3.55 Fatty that does everything else for media, linux, and homebrew...

    Will running Skyrim at 120hz break the game?

    That's because it's not a modern engine. Creation Engine is Gamebyro with paperclips and bubblegum.

    Dark Souls is on Steam

    The point of releasing it on PC is that you don't need to buy an Xbox 360 or PS3. Also higher resolutions is probably a given (but hopefully not frame rate lock). Gamepads for playing on PC is already a given in so many games these days because of porting. We wouldn't even get those games...

    Dark Souls is on Steam

    According to all the articles I read, it won't. There will be basic mouse+keyboard support but gamepad is mostly required, but we will see at release what happens.

    Wii U won't support Unreal Engine 4.

    Nintendo focuses so much on their own titles because the 3rd party abandoned Nintendo 10 years ago. They love 3rd party and would embrace it if 3rd party developers cared about Nintendo. Look at the DS, the majority of games on that system were 3rd party and that's why it was one of the best...

    PS4 Backwards complatiable with a twist?

    This makes little sense. How can you just assume this? The PS3 already struggled throughout its years trying to emulate PS2 correctly after they removed the EE chips. The PS4 is probably going to go for a more traditional architecture because they got bit by developer support by having such an...

    Starhawk's new old mouse

    PS4 Backwards complatiable with a twist?

    People are shocked? This is nothing new. When they took PS2 backwards compatibility out of PS3s early on, they replaced it with PS2 classics from the PSN store that you could rebuy to enjoy.

    From pc to ps3

    I have a PS3 connected to my PC. The sound and video go through the PC to one of my Eyefinity monitors (can do recording) and's just so hard to play PS3 games. Graphically, the majority of games are terribly inferior to the Xbox 360 because of how difficult it is to program for the PS3...

    Holy crap, it worked! Dead video card, resurrected!

    How hard were you rubbing with that Q-Tip? How did you manage to damage/snap off surface mount components with a cotton Q-Tip? And why would you ever put a piece of exposed and ungrounded electronic equipment into a fluffy carpet full of static and ESD potential?

    IObit's Game Booster 3

    Sorry, I just don't like software that claims to "boost" performance. Many users unwittingly use these things to kill processes or "clean" things like the registry (which can be bad for Windows 7) and often cause more harm than good.

    IObit's Game Booster 3

    I'm shocked every day how veteran PC gamers still fall for crapware and the equivalent of snake oil medical quackery for "cleaning" their registries, suspect-defragging, "optimizing", killing processes, etc. Get rid of Smart Defrag as well please. IObit is a very unsavory company.

    Antec KUHLER HO 920 CPU Water Cooler Review @ [H]

    No issues after many months. Fan control is excellent. USB interface is better than Corsair which makes you physically open your case and press a button and select between three static speeds until you pay another small fortune for their ridiculous control unit.

    IObit's Game Booster 3

    All of these things are fake, crap, and often do more harm than good. Background processes in comparison to wealth of CPU power and vast memory we have these days won't do anything to gaming performance unless your computer is ancient and you notice your ram filling to capacity and your CPU...

    Sleeping Dogs August 14th all platforms

    This game would be much better if it was actually dubbed in Cantonese but then it would probably be a commercial failure in the west. I bet the voice acting will be as stereotypical and cheesy as it was in John Woo's Stranglehold (the Max Payne like Chow Yun Fat 3rd person shooter). Hong Kong...

    Where can you get a ps3 reball done?

    A reball is a good as permanent if you get good soldering and a decent reballing/surface mount equipment. For me, the cost of reballing was only $15 for the balls and stencil as I have access to industrial equipment. For others though, the cost of reballing may be worth it if they have an...

    Where can you get a ps3 reball done?

    Reflow is just temporary and can be done with a heat gun, oven, towel, or the machine. It will never last like a reball would.

    Where can you get a ps3 reball done?

    No there is a permanent fix. You were confusing the things you researched or didn't understand it properly and most people make this same mistake. A reball is the permanent fix. The temporary fix is the reflow. The reflow (using the bake in an oven or heat gun method) simply reflows the old...

    Battlechess is on Kickstarter

    The only reason I played this as a kid was the funny gore like on Knight on Knight action where he cut off the limbs of the other knight. Basically, it was like fatalities before Mortal Kombat invented fatalities. I think the only way a modern battlechess would work is if it didn't repeat...

    [warm] Monoprice mechanical keyboards, cherry mx black or red *new*

    The backlit one is just a rebranded w/red LEDs ione/xarmor/scorpio It's obvious from the pics. It's the exact same keyboard. Those get mediocre reviews but they aren't bad. For the price, I'd get something else though. I hear the xarmors have some LED bleed issues or uneven lighting and the keys...

    Sniper Elite V2

    I gotta ask - does this game get any harder than the demo? Even on Elite difficulty, having the mouse pretty much means any decent gamer will just slaughter everything and never die because they are so generous with health.
