    They're a little pricier and Newegg has a better financing deal.

    Thinking of making the switch to LCD...Need advice

    I'm looking to make the switch too, so I'll get in on this also. My setup will be used for about an even split between gaming and design work...so color accuracy is fairly important. I'm not sure if I want to go 17 or 19, either one is an improvement over the 17" (16 viewable) CRT I've got...

    Question about memory interface

    I haven't really figured out what I'm looking for, which is why I had that question. As I'm looking for AGP right now, I've seen the 6600s, the 6800GSs, the X800/Pros, and each one is radically different from one another and I'm not entirely sure what I'm looking at. I'm not a hardline...

    Question about memory interface

    What is the real-world difference between 256-bit and 128-bit interfaces if all other things are close to equal? I'm looking to make a minor upgrade and I've found several 128MB cards with a 256-bit interface, 256MB cards with a 128-bit interface, and 256MB cards with a 256-bit interface. Do...

    I thought it was a lot of fun. I might have to fire it up when I get home from work tonight.

    Verizon $14.95 deal going bye-bye

    Actually, that's standard. Most people get slightly above what they're provisioned for. Most of the time, the 1.5Mb lines are actually 1.6, the 3Mb lines are 3.66, and the 768 lines are usually 864.

    Verizon $14.95 deal going bye-bye

    That one's not gonna be $20 (I think it's 35.99 or 39.99, I don't work in billing), but I've never seen anything provisioned for less than 768 on the 3meg line.

    Verizon $14.95 deal going bye-bye

    The fastest in most places is 3Mb/768Kb. That's not part of the $14.95 package though. There are some places that have a 7Mb downstream line. As far as I know, it's only in areas near Boston.

    Verizon $14.95 deal going bye-bye

    I work for VOL. The deal is that since we've had this stupid fucking promotion, we've had almost a million people sign up. There isn't enough capacity in most COs. Try to place your order but don't be surprised if it never goes through.

    Becoming a profesional gamer

    Jobs suck. Johnny Ramone said "Being a guitar player in a rock band is the coolest job ever, but it's still a job." You'll never be happy with what you do for a living, but it is possible to not hate it. I strive to reach that goal someday.

    Are Cinematics Ruining Games?

    If I'm playing a game, it's because I want to play a game. If I want to watch a movie, I'll watch a fucking movie.

    want to learn php and mysql, but i need a task

    It's pretty generic, but building a dynamic CD or DVD collection is a good way to practice writing to and retrieving info from a database.

    Is it possible to block hotlinking to all but one directory?

    Same question as the title. I want to be able to have images in a specific directory available for my personal use while locking off everything else on the site. Is it possible to do this with htaccess or something else?

    I've never had a single problem with SBC since I got them, though I've never had to call tech support. The best tech support is support you never need.

    Would you buy a PS3 for $500.00?

    Hell fucking no. I wish I had $500 to piss away on something like that. I'm also not remotely interested in any system at launch. It's worth it more to me to wait for a couple of price breaks and some bugs to be worked out first.

    Large, lightweight (ish) CRT

    It finally died, and in a most spectacular way. At least I got a fireworks show out of it. I'm running on a craptacular 17" CTX I had in the closet.

    Large, lightweight (ish) CRT

    I've got a Dell P1110 that's about ready to shit the bed. I love having a 20.1" viewable display, but the thing is a fucking 87 pound pig. Anyone know of anything that is comparable in size but doesn't weigh so much? My desk has a glass top...so I'm not entirely comfortable having this beast...

    For those of you that are dicks to the techs, don't be. The people that know how to do things are few and far between, and frequently occurs that if someone says he's a "technician", you can pretty much guarantee he doesn't know shit. When you get a few "network admins" that say they don't...

    Wow. This place is nowhere near that bad. I'm glad I don't do your job. There are some guys here that say they're planning to publish all the company's information on Broadband Reports when they quit. I hope I'm not here when that happens. It'll be chaos.
