    Project: VMw

    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

    Project: VMw

    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. Fan's sleeved All the...

    HP Says Cats Void Your Warranty

    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...

    Best Buy 10% off via cybernetnews

    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...

    Laptop Dock For Motorola Atrix 4G $50

    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.

    OSX in ESXi VM?

    Are you using VNC to connect to the VM via VMware, or are you runing directly to the Host? If directly to the host, are you using the built in screen sharing or a standalone vnc host?

    Why are Macs becoming more popular for Network/System engineers?

    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...

    MW3: Any HardOCP PC Gamer Reviews?

    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...

    Not optimum mode. Recommended mode...

    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...

    Crossfire & Refresh rate issues

    I was able to get the game to properly launch by downgrading to the 11.9's and CAP4. I end up having a decent frame rate drop though.

    Crossfire & Refresh rate issues

    60hz on an lcd is not the same as 60hz on a CRT, it's actually quite normal.

    Question for BF3 server admins/owners regarding game modes

    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...

    PC Dedicated Servers for MW3 to be Unranked Only

    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...

    Rage sucks

    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...

    Do you pay for apps?

    I buy a lot of apps / games. If there is a review and it looks solid i'll buy. That said, there is usually a price threshold for an app or game for me.
