I've settled on which Android Development Kit board to pickup. Having built a few projects with an Arduino before, i'm confident this kit will more than handle what i'm planning for.
Android Arudino Dev kit
Intel 320 120gb SSD's - Best Buy has them for $189 right now, Had $250 in Rewardzone certificates. So at Net $64.00 each I think it worked out great! Also picked up a USB 3.0 motherboard header for the Front Corsair USB 3.0 cable
Two 2TB Hard drives. One will be...
Testing / stripping the modular sata power cable ( sole connection to sata backplane)
Mistakes, mistakes. But, lessons learned so all is well.
I finally found that cutting the length, setting the wrap on the sleeve first, then feeding it lends for a clean finish.
Overview / Goal:
This build is entirely for a VMware Workstation 8 focused system, built on Ubuntu.
At any given point there will be anywhere from 8-16 virtual machines in use with varying load / ram requirements so with prices the way they are, expect a lot of ram!
As an SSD convert...
I concur, even more so common were the *smokers* that had their pc's turn that dingy smoke stained color. I once saw a system that actually have a buildup of ash and fluids (guy used to put ash tray right on top of his pc), it had fallen onto the system and seeped through the fan. He didn't...
If you're a rewardzone silver member, call the support line (goes directly to a human) and often times if you're nice, they'll call the store and sort it or in exchange give you some free RZ giftcards.
I had a phone purchase that went on sale a day later at radioshack, the guy wouldn't honer...
I'm glad I got in at the $50 price, I was going to pick one up in June, but the $400 price tag was way too steep. It's still pending shipment according to their website, I hope they don't pull a fast one.
If anything, i'll use it as a larger screen to stream netflix at my desk.
The VM arguement (why use a Mac with VMs when you can use a PC) is a poor arguement against using a Mac. All of my developers here, Windows or Mac OS X, use virtual machines to complete their tasks.
I use a ThinkPad and a Macbook Pro Daily. I am partial to Mac OS due mostly to the OS and it's...
Singleplayer: Only played for about 15 minutes, so no real review.
Multiplayer: Played for over 4 hrs last night. The rounds are extremely short in Death match. They're still the 7500 point requirement, but for some reason they were anywhere from 5 - 8 minutes for most of the games. Also, the...
I was receiving this issue with BF3 on my Crossfire setup. (a few posts down) I was able to remedy by dropping back to 11.9's with Cap 4 instead of the 11.10's. I swapped out a few monitors myself (3 different model samsung 24's and a Dell 24") and it didn't improve until yesterday (oddly...

32GB ECC RAM
120GB SSD (intel) Windows
120GB SSD (intel) Mac OS X
Samsung BX2440 1080P Monitor
AMD 11.10 Release

On the 11.9 I was able to launch BF3 fullscreen at 1080p 60hz (with a 5870).
I've got the monitor set to...
i'm pretty sure to keep it mix mode you'll have to set the server to the max players allowed (32) vs 64 if your server supports it.
Side note, I'm actually surprised my server hasn't been hammered yet. There seem to be plenty of servers out there right now so unless it's a need for you and...
Wow that's surprising, are you always low on the results board? I put about 30 hrs into COD on ps3 (according to stats) and in about 20 hrs in I had the option to prestige. I decided I didn't care about that and preferred to keep my unlocked weapons instead. Not sure how you couldn't have hit it...
I had horrible performance and wanted to toss the game out of the window... low and behold the following fixed it up 1000%. Most of this is a rehash of prior posts, but it's the proper mix that worked for me.
If you're using an ATI 5870 or equivalent card,
#1. Install the ATI Rage hotfix...
I have responded to those with problems via PM.
As for being online, I haven't had internet access for quite a few days and decided to figure out how that was possible. I used Safari on a friends mac, [H] was on his *speed Dial page* my assumption is since it's rendering current info, it's also...

As bad as the internet can be, I'm often humbled by the fact that the [H] forums in general are pretty respectful and often times supportive of the members.
At the end of the day, even if you feel you've got little motivation I recommend pulling out a picture of your "Little Dinosaur". That by...
