    Something like Peerblock that runs ON your router...

    Actually, what router I buy depends on what I find out through this thread - I posted the thread to try and help figure out which router to get. Other features I want in the router are: good 2.4Ghz "N" range and excellent NAS performance through a disk connected to the router's USB or eSATA...

    Something like Peerblock that runs ON your router...

    I've been searching, but haven't found this yet. Usually I'm good at "googling" things, but this has stumped me so far. :( Today's routers are more than powerful enough - could someone tell me which router firmwares will load "block lists" for blocking "bad" IP ranges? (Want to block IPs of...

    Slow transfer speed to usb connected hard drive

    I expect a basic decent wifi router to cost less than $50. It's a massively common widespread consumer electronic device which has had more than a decade for refinement of technologies including "all in one chips", reliability, optimization of both power efficiency and performance, design...

    BF4 AMD Mantle Video Card Performance Review Part 1 @ [H]

    To me, enthusiast means someone who wants to get the most out of thier computer. I wish that I could have my computer be faster and more capable than some random "non-geek" who just buys the latest most expensive top model/parts. I say this because value is also important to me...

    Hyper-Realistic CGI Is Killing Photographers

    Right side is obviously fake. The weird blur of the beard shading is not right. Forehead skin looks like dirty Naugahide(TM). Now, one could have photoshopped the "real" side to make it look a little fake and fool people into guessing the wrong side which is CGI :P

    Pirate Bay Censorship Backfires as New Proxies Bloom

    No shit, got to let out all those murderers, rapists, armed robbers, etc. out early to make room for those terrible .MP3 sharers!!!

    Pirate Bay Censorship Backfires as New Proxies Bloom

    That makes me want to start pirating. So does any other sort of annoying DRM.

    Hitman Absolution Performance and IQ Review @ [H]

    Or, how about a re-release of Blood Money with a new graphics engine and additional content added? I'd buy that for $30.

    Hitman Absolution Performance and IQ Review @ [H]

    The first review I read said that Blood Money was awesome, but this one is a disaster, simply terrible for several reasons including the awful plotline which you are forced to suffer through multiple times due to not being able to save much... I'll wait for it to go down to $10, then buy it...

    Web Designer Sentenced For Creating Piracy Website

    It's things like this [douchebags like anybody related to this f#@ked up court case] that make me wish I believed in Hell, so I could be comforted by the thought of them going there.

    Web Designer Sentenced For Creating Piracy Website

    It is NOT a valid legal argument. This is simply a steaming pile of BS. This is worse than arresting the construction company that built a road because bank robbers used it to get away. We need to start suing people in the federal DOT each time criminals use roads until this crap is...

    Yeah, if you couldn't SEE the screen, then you're right. You would not see much difference. You wouldn't see ANYTHING.:eek:

    Razer Mouse Requires Always-On Internet Connection?

    It is not an option to use Synapse in offline mode. I'm assuming complaining about that is not quite the same as say: complaining that I can't watch a Netflix movie offline? OK so, does Synapse do anything other than update your configuration - does it give you features beyond what the other...

    You say that like it's an OPTION. But it's not just an option. You are so wrong it hurts.

    Razer Mouse Requires Always-On Internet Connection?

    Why are there always people like this on these threads that sound like a mole from the company trying to calm things down? Just like when I complained about how lame Vista was, there were like a dozen people saying "Hey, Vista is great, really!". Vista was a waste, Windows 7 is what Vista...

    Foxconn Is Looking To Set Up Factories In The US

    *That is sheer stupidity - the poster child of idiotic decisions for all that is wrong with the Republican party of today. We need somebody like Abraham Lincoln or Dwight Eisenhower (two truly great Republicans) to come along and kick some sense into "both" parties (I don't really consider them...

    Foxconn Is Looking To Set Up Factories In The US

    It [investigations into work conditions at Foxconn] should be more than just a "PR Headache" for Apple. It should have hurt them at least enough to cut their stock value in half. Not a big surprise that you get that [booming prison population] when you privatize prisons and let them be run...

    are you getting blue or white galaxy s3?

    White 32GB is on the way. Going with T-Mobile not Verizon because T-Mobile's $30/month "unlimited" data plan costs less than half compared to Verizon$$$ Wish there was something like the TPU case I use on my Galaxy S, only a little bit thinner. How about a LEXAN case that pops on tightly...

    The Worst BlackBerry Ad..Ever

    I haven't used a BB for years, but, iPhone and Android email both still SUCK compared to email on BB. CAN'T EVEN USE MULTI-TOUCH TO SELECT MORE THAN ONE EMAIL?* WTF? :rolleyes: Really? Android and iPhone email are GARBAGE, still, and they've had years to make it better. *I haven't...

    PROOF that Steam sucks...

    For reasons similar to those I stopped buying console games completely except for a few (literally) used games to play on other people's consoles (I don't own a 360 or PS3 even though I used to be a console-maniac because I was so disgusted at the companies greed, charging $60 for games after...

    PROOF that Steam sucks...

    Nope. To use your language: who the fuck would have expected STEAM when they bought a game at a store for the express purpose of NOT buying a Steam game? (Civ V). Once I found out it required Steam (and I got over the shock of feeling like somebody had just snuck up and screwed me in the...

    PROOF that Steam sucks...

    If the big corporations get out of the PC gaming market, then smaller game makers will take their place. Many of my favorite games have even been free, or, cheap shareware. I don't see any grounds (ha ha a joke) for a lawsuit there. Do they advertise it as specifically not being a crappy...

    PROOF that Steam sucks...

    No. I only called because I want them to pay attention and fix the machine if it's only dispensing half as much espresso as it should be. I don't know if they're trying to "save money" or the machine just needs maintenance. Either way, it's disappointing that 3 times in a row at 2 different...

    PROOF that Steam sucks...

    I paid almost three dollars and their machine was badly mist-adjusted putting about half as much espresso in as it should. Most any corporation should be (and most are) thankful for those customers who call, rather than just stop being customers.

    PROOF that Steam sucks...

    Origin has been a headache too. That was sure was some glitchy piece of crap software when I first used it. Before I get too old ant turn senile, I've got to just write my own god damn game already, then I can not only delete Steam, but use one of those "data scrubebers" and overwrite 0s...

    PROOF that Steam sucks...

    When I bought a SEGA cartridge you can be damn sure I owned that cartridge, even if it did contain their copyrighted code on it. They had no legal grounds to make me give that cartridge back once I bought it. It's an annoying nitpick to not let consumers "own" a program. I'm not saying we...

    PROOF that Steam sucks...

    Monkey, you ignored the main point of my post - companies that have good products are HAPPY to have a phone number that you can call, and speak to a human. Heck, if McDonald's makes me a bad cup of coffee corporate is HAPPY when I call and tell them. They tell me sorry, the give me 2 free...

    PROOF that Steam sucks...

    Ok, I won't get too stressed over it, I'll try to be a little more ZEN... Let's go over the scenario a little more. So today it comes up with some new agreement and I'm just thinking: "You know what, I don't really agree with this, let me press "disagree" and just install it anyway ok? So I...

    PROOF that Steam sucks...

    Here's all the proof you need: Try to find a customer service phone number where you can reach a real human person. If Steam did not suck, they would not need to make it so ridiculously hard to speak to someone. :rolleyes: I tried to call them because I don't agree to the new terms of...

    Use VPN for just one website?

    Doh - I had just read about FoxyProxy the other day too - but I had not thought about looking for the different VPN client to use with it. I should have looked into using FoxyProxy, I guess I was just wishing that the built in VPN client had more options than it does (like a box where you can...

    Apple Didn't Steal iPhone Design From Sony?

    If Apple wins, then, Apple should just be GIVEN to Xerox because Apple's copying of the mouse was a heck of a lot more of a big deal than any of Samsung's SLIGHT resemblance to Apple's iPhone.
