    Best hassle-free way to get a Mint system up and running for Steam gaming...

    So I recently dropped Windows 8.1 on my gaming comp for Mint 16. After some trial and error I found a way to get the newest beta drivers up and running correctly for my setup and I thought I'd share. While I could go and fix the drivers to actually work, I followed these steps in order to just...

    Anyone figure out how to change the Calendar app icons in Mountain Lion?

    I've been posting around on different forums looking for the answer and getting no dice yet. Hoping someone has been able to do it and can help me out. Added the icons manually, along with the docktileplugin folder. All I get is a blank icon with the month and day still. Even tried with CandyBar...

    Experience with Win8/Server 2012 on Mac?

    Anyone try these out on their Macs yet? I probably wouldn't bother if I wasn't a tech. Kind of have to learn it for the sake of others. Boot Camp drivers are shoddy. Some work, some don't. Gonna guess we won't see an update to Boot Camp for some time...

    Issue with Win Server 2012 on an iMac with 6750M

    Unsure where to post this so I'll post it here. Installed Windows Server 2012 Standard on my iMac today through Boot Camp so I can mess with Metro for the time being and find out if things actually work. My goal is to use it as a workstation OS and not mess with any of the server-side stuff...

    New PSU for an HP Slimline s5510y?

    I'm looking at upgrading the mobo for this PC and have settled on MSI 890GXM-G65. Are there any PSUs that fit that would supply plenty of watts for say, the X4 965 and an HD 57xx? Currently it's stock with an Athlon II X2 240 and I added a 1GB HD 5450 to it. Anyone put something nicer in there...

    DSiWare Games

    Anyone enjoying any of these? Real Soccer 2009 seems decent, for a DS soccer game anyway. The Art Style Series seems to be the real winners though. I have both Aquia and got PiCTOBiTS today. Both are interesting and pretty challenging. I saw that there are a ton of these Art Style games out...

    After using a smartphone/PDA phone, could you ever go back to a regular cell phone?

    I was thinking about this earlier today and also just now while setting up ALL of my email accounts on my treo. I could never go back. After having all the bells and whistles for awhile now, I doubt I could live without a smartphone. In fact if I could find a portable keyboard for it, I'd...

    Firefox 3.0.4 = garbage

    Never have I seen a minor update crash constantly on sites I go to everyday. Hotmail, Facebook, THIS FORUM all make it crash on a consistant but random basis. I could be going from Hotmail to Newegg and it will crash, or Facebook to here and it will crash. Is this happening for anyone else...

    World of Goo

    ...Is frickin awesome. Highly recommend you guys pick it up off Steam. Frustration level can get high...especially on the last level of Ch. 1. One wrong move and the whole thing goes kaput. And thats what the time bugs are for. :)

    Anyone give up overclocking for silence?

    I decided to last night after I stuck my VF700 on my 8800GT. hooked up my two case fans to the 5v connectors and hooked the vid card fan up to the 12v. cools nicely actually. i then toned down the C2D overclock to 2.33 and put the fan down to 50%. i'm in silence heaven and can still play...

    Thinkin about giving up gaming for awhile...

    Prolly gonna sell the rig in my sig eventually, but I figured I'd ask around for some opinions. I've found some decent old ultraportables for the same price of the EeePC on ebay. Problem is of course, no warranty of any kind with them, and they're used as well. With an Eee PC i'd be able to...

    Been reduced to konqueror for web browsing

    on openSUSE 10.3. I've narrowed it down to flash player being the cause but even after removing it and firefox for a reinstall, it still crashes. Opera has been a little better as the player just crashes and not the browser. pain in the ass. why can't adobe get their shit together? i...

    Must flush dns cache every so often to view the forums

    it looks like some have mentioned timeouts. the solution is to flush the dns cache. but it seems you have to do this every hour or so. if you do it close enough to the time it resets, you can see there is barely anyone on the boards. just wanted to let you guys know if you didn't already.

    Medieval 2 Total War: Kingdoms on Aug 28th

    Really tired of the BioShock threads so here is somethin different :p Looks like Steam will be getting it on the 28th which is good for me since I bought M2 off of it. Which btw, comes with a warning: With regards to what is in the expansion: anyone else excited for this too? Just...

    Latest Round of Updates Killed Custom Visual Styles

    So I'm pretty much dumbfounded right now over this. I'm not quite sure with update did it but when Windows Update ran on Tues and I rebooted, it killed the custom visual styles I had. Now I can only use the default stuff. I've patched, repatched, restored the originals and patched again the...

    VT Remembrance Logo

    Is there a way we could get that put up for a week or two on the front page maybe under the latest headlines part on the right side? I think it would be a cool thing to do for awhile. If not thats ok. You could prolly photoshop it to get rid of the white and allow it to blend in more with the...

    MP CoD2 doesn't work in Vista but SP does?

    Yeah I'm pissed. MP just crashes back to the desktop no matter what. I've tried running as admin, making sure it was unblocked in the firewall, running it in and OUT of compatibility mode in XP. I dunno what else to try. Anyone else having the same problem? What I don't understand is why SP...
