Hey everyone, day 4 (I think) in the mac camp and I am loving it.
Problem: When I close the lid I dont like waiting 30-40 seconds for the memory to be written to HDD, so I used the terminal command <sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0> to set it to immediate sleep. This works great.
Hey, I just got a macbook pro today, and I am loving it. I need to network my Vista desktop (sig) to my new apple to be able to transfer files and things like that.
I am a total mac noob, and have no idea what I am doing. Can someone point me in the right direction?
I just bought it today and I want to check out the online play, but I cant seem to connect to anyone and after about 30-45 seconds I get error 85020.
Anyone able to get online? Is this a Nintendo problem, or a wi-fi connection problem?
I am trying to get a program that can take microphone input and distort it (including reverb effects, echoes, variable lag...etc).
I tried using the software that came with my X-Fi, as indicated in this thread. Unfortunately, just like creative's drivers, the software is a total piece of shit...
Hey, I just downloaded Ubuntu 7.05, and am excited to check out beryl and linux media center...
But before I can do any of that, I have to figure out how to install stuff. I have DLed the proper drivers from nvidia.com and I just cant figure out how to install them. I used the terminal and...
I have found the room underground and the "Find Strelok's Stash" sub-mission is complete, but now it says find more information about Strelok...is that supposed to be in this room? Where should I look?
Thanks for the help.
I have been trying to OC my new DFI board. Everything is going very well, but the memory overclocking seems to be a little strange.
I can boot memtest with my TCC5 memory (2x512) at 275+ MHz, 3-4-4-8. It will run all day and be rock stable. As soon as I try to boot windows, computer crashes...
I am sitting here watching this beast of a drive format. Its going to take a while...
I was wondering, this is a brand new drive, does it need the full on format, or will a quick format be sufficient?
Thanks for your help!
My ipod got stolen about 6 months ago. I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for a new ipod announcement. september comes and goes. macworld 2007 comes and goes, with no announcement of a new ipod.
I really want an ipod, and my mom even gave me $250 to apple for christmas, and I have...
Well, its that time of year again. January 9-12 is Macworld 2007. Any predictions on what we will be seeing?
I am hoping for iTV and a new iPod. I have a gift certificate for $250, but I wont be buying a 5G ipod...gotta wait for 6G; I hope they are released at macworld!!
What are you all...
I hope all those people who are paying thousands of dollars arent SOL!! The PS3 needs exclusive titles, titles that only the cell processor can handle, not just games that are also available for the 360.
Just read up a little on valve and what direction they are taking the source engine with respect to multi-core CPU's. They say dual core is good, quad core is excelent. In fact, Gabe Newell said that they have been putting off buying new hardware to wait for kentsfield.
I have been really...
Soon, with the coming of G80, it will be time to ditch the old AGP system. Sad, I know; but all good things come to an end.
So, I have a 939 X2, and will obviously need a 939 board. Last time I researched this, it seemed that the DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 SLI-DR Expert was the best all around...
I downloaded the free vista (my beta 2 key works!!) and am currently using Build 5536.
Usually I am a winamp guy, and know jsut how I like the equalizer, but im giving WMP11 a shot. The problem is I am a slight audiophile, and I can hear how flat WMP plays the songs, but I cant find the...
This game comes out tomorrow, and I have it preordered from amazon.com...so it should be shipping tomorrow and arriving wednesday. Anyone else looking forward to this game? Im really wondering how well they used teh touch screen to control the ship, but every preview I read says its really easy.
Every time I go into this thread about the cease-fire in the middle east, I get slapped with one of these:
I dont know what it is, or why, but It comes up every time I load that particular thread.
Just a heads up.
Hey, just got this game, fired it up, but I cant seem to get it to change resolution. I want to set it at 1680x1050, but there is no 'Apply' button or anything, so I can set it then go back to the main menu, but nothing changes and when I go back to the video settings its on 800x600 again...
stopping kids from going to R rated movies is law, I believe Clinton made that one.
I believe you might have meant the "explicit content" sticker on CD's, because that is not a law, it is volentarily enforced (or not) by teh store in question.
I am about to purchase one of these chips, but there are 2 different SKUs available to me through ZZF.
They are both teh same price, so naturally I want to get the better one.
If you have an X2 4400+, would you do me a favor and look at your box...
Have you guys tried this? I guess it got released in the last update of the game, and I totally forgot about it till yesterday.
Its actually pretty fun. Its like a game of CS that uses only bots and spawns them all the time. Its cool though, because due to the adaptive AI system, you dont...
I have a 3000+ @ 2.2 GHz ATM, limited by my shitty mobo. The chip can do 2.75GHz no sweat in an nForce based mobo.
I am going to upgrade to a PCI-e based system soon in the near future, because my 6800GT is getting dated, and I really like the G80; so upgrading the mobo is a must. For 939...
Just returned Metroid Prime, didnt like it too much. Now, I have about $36 in the DS fund; time for another game.
Games I own:
New Super Mario
Super mario 64
Games I've had my eye on:
I just picked up a DS lite...this thing is so awesome.
Now I need games. I dont have $35 for each game I want, so I was wondering where the cheapest used games are. I hit up gamestop for Super Mario 64 DS for $20, that was a good deal...but even Tetris seems to be $30 everywhere, used. $5...
Reinstalling windows is a pain in teh ass. The worst part is installing norton, then installing firefox, then installing winamp, then installing powerdvd...so forth and so on.
Is there a way to make a copy of my existing XP disc, tweak it so things like firefox are installed right off the bat...
