    5M Gmail Passwords Leaked To Russian Bitcoin Forum

    Thanks, good reminder... I did and I'm NOT hacked. It's great because they test it thoroughly... I mean, I immediately got a text from my two factor authentication and promptly emailed the code to them. My account is for sure safe. :p

    Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Tesla

    This is nothing more than a ploy. There are way more fires on standard gasoline powered vehicles. The perfect analogy for this is a plane crash. The numbers show us that you are MUCH safer flying... But, when a plane crashes, it's a HUGE media frenzy.

    Xbox 360 Gets Time Warner Cable App With 300 Channels

    I have BrightHouse, which is TWC & RoadRunner. Should work... Either way, this may be a really nice way to cut the cord, and get rid of cable. (Always a hard choice because of Discovery Channel, and sports not televised OTA). I don't think they flag your account for only having broadband...

    Xbox One Reputation: No More Cheats or Jerks

    Let me just say this... CHROMEHOUNDS! Anyone remember this game on 360? I always had a 5 start rep in XBL. But when that game came out, it became customary for opposing teams to give you bad rep if they lost. This exponentially increased negative rep for everyone that played, fairly or...

    Multi-GPU, how to chose default? (different cards)

    Hey, Quick question, maybe someone that has experienced this can help. I have an HTPC I use to drive my bigscreen for movies, etc. As such, I originally bought a low end GPU (GT 610). Simply because I didnt need the power to run anything. And, it has an HDMI output, which can bitstream...

    Warm ?Samsung - 60" Class - Plasma - 1080p Vertical - $847 NO MIR

    Indeed, in addition... Lower end models like e550 aren't even full 1080 res, and lack some filters, which is why I made those statements. (SmartTV and the like is useless for most of us I'd say, with HTPCs) But, I do agree, unless you're a videophile, this won't even be noticed.

    Warm ?Samsung - 60" Class - Plasma - 1080p Vertical - $847 NO MIR

    You get what you pay for, I mean... $800 for a screen this size is good and all on the cheap, but the 530 series is the lowest 1080p capable display on their list this year. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0075814YQ I'd spend a bit more cash if possible

    Help with some vbs script

    Hey, could anyone give me a hand with a bit of vbs? I'm stuck with some of the logic, and haven't played with vbs is a long time. I'm trying to create a script that will do the following: 1- Check if text file exists, if so, quit. 2- If not, create text file. (So, script doesn't run next...

    $36.99 - Microsoft 360 Wireless Controller for Windows

    This is user error, you need to sync it separately with the dongle so it doesn't turn on your 360. I have the PC receiver and 360 almost side by side and it never turns on the incorrect device as my controllers are synched correctly. (one with the 360, one with PC). besides, you cannot sync...

    $36.99 - Microsoft 360 Wireless Controller for Windows

    Do these automatically turn off? I wish I could find a wired one. I always have an issue with my 360 wireless version (Using the same receiver)... If I don't keep it on by moving a stick now and then, BF3 tends to not see it and if I jump in a vehicle I can't move or get out. Only fix is...

    Acronis True Image Personal 2010 FREE

    Also, who is downloadcrew? You need to register to download, then get a code. After this step, you must install the software, fill another form to then get an actual serial to activate. I'm getting a bit skeptical about the whole process, even if it's free. Thanks for posting though.

    Backup (Clone) OS drive to share

    Thanks, yeah... Unfortunately network backup is a feature Win 7 Home Premium lacks. (Only available in Enterprise, professional or ultimate I believe). For now, I've resorted to the built-in backup, which only saves to a local drive. Which I have to sync after via synctoy to my share. (This...

    Backup (Clone) OS drive to share

    Hey, Can you suggest an application (free/or cheap is better) that will allow me to perform a full clone of an OS drive to a network share, on a schedule & for multiple machines? Something that I could restore to a new drive from an image if the original experiences a catastrophic failure...

    Best CPU under $100 for AM3 board for transcoding

    Thanks for the suggestion.. I saw a Phenom X6 for around $130. That said, I updated ffmpeg to the latest stable release (64bit) and it looks like that gave me a nice boost, enough to allow 720p transcoding with no hiccups. so, I guess problem solved. But, I will definitely need a quad for...

    Best CPU under $100 for AM3 board for transcoding

    Hey guys, I have a Subsonic server, which is running on the following hardware: Athlon II X2 255 @ 3.1 (Stock) AM3 938 Biostar TA880GB+ 4 GB Ram Unfortunately, it appears that the poor dual core on this PC is not enough to transcode HD content on the fly for streaming. Both cores get pegged...

    Check out my new years 2500k Overclock

    You really need to do some more reading before you fry something. The reason for the voltage jump is one of the basic things you need to understand to safely overclock SB. I don't mean to be harsh, but read a bit more. There are great threads here @ the [H].

    SKYRIM: Extremely slow Y axis (look up/down). Good FPS (50+)

    I actually did try fresh ini by deleting my originals and letting the game create new ones, as in OP. Why it didn't work, I have no idea. (No tweaks)

    SKYRIM: Extremely slow Y axis (look up/down). Good FPS (50+)

    Thanks... Tired pretty much all that stuff. The good news us that I just found the fix. Apparently the way sensitivity is handled by the game changed in one of the patches. I had several lines in my skyrim ini which referenced Y/X scales from a prior tweak. The solution, remove all of the...

    Finally, successful DRM?

    Haven't tried and I really don't care about this game. But the DRM approach sounded amazing. So, I had to youtube it and apparently you can easily kill it with a quick console command. So much for that I guess.

    BF3 Console Vs PC

    I use mouse/KB for BF3... Unless it's a vehicle. But you'd be surprised, the gamepad isn't as bad as you think. Skyrim is a perfect example on why it's best on PC with a 360 gamepad.

    BF3 Console Vs PC

    Or, when you have the best of both worlds and use a 360 pad to play on your PC, which is hooked up to your big screen :) If I need to, I can swap to mouse/kb (requires moving a table).

    Battlefield 3 flying practice and joystick configuration server

    Unfortunately, no manual way that I've seen. I have the same issue with the twist rudder on my Saitek X52 & the throttle axis. I gave up on using it and went back to my 360 controller. It works well enough, but yaw is a pain.
