These guys need to stop. While I am no fan of piracy, all of these measures to "protect the content" just make it harder for legitimate users to enjoy the product they purchased.
Here's a novel concept. How about, instead of trying to pass laws to stop the progression of society and...
My old shuttle had some minor heat issues (was running an Athlon XP 1700+, just to give you an idea of how long ago this was). Do shuttles still have this problem or do they run pretty cool these days?
I used to be a hardware geek (kept up to date on all the latest hardware releases and such) but since finishing college I've really fallen out of the loop. I've decided that it's time to upgrade my aging gaming rig (X2 4600+, 2GB RAM, Geforce 8800GT) and I'm considering going SFF...
I've been attending since 2004 (I'm one of the original founders, now semi-retired). I really don't play too many games these days, but I have still been in attendance at every Pittco and I have always had loads of fun!
I don't work in the video game industry myself so I couldn't tell you exacts, but I did make a video game for a class in College. My project was a space shooter game so the math wasn't too bad, but one of the projects was building a game that involved blowing up objects (similar to Red Faction...
If you want to get into the video game industry as a programmer then you need to get at least a BS in Computer Science with a minor in Physics or Mathematics. Learn C++ inside and out, as that will be your new best friend, learning Python would also be a good thing as well, as it seems some...
These days: Eclipse, Emacs, Gnome's Terminal (and Quake), Chromium, and Firefox.
In College: Emacs and a Terminal. :D
I bought it on Saturday (Feb 2nd) from the Apple Store in Pittsburgh and already I have used it almost non-stop. The switch back to Mac OS (the last time I owned a Mac was in 1996) has been completely stemless. Now I just need to find some decent office software, gawd I wish Office 2008 would...
Yeah I just set it up like that today because my old setup was extremely cluttered and inefficient. Now that I don't have my massive Sager on my desk I actually have some room to spread things out a bit.
Here is my new Black Macbook. If you remember two summers ago I purchased a Sager 3880 but due to ATS going out of business and my warranty being voided I have decided to sell it and purchase a new machine. This is the Sager's replacement.
Awesome! Pittco events are always great and the past few lans have been pretty diverse in terms of what games are played. There is always the CS people but at the last LAN I saw a lot of WarCraft III: DOTA, UT2004, and Battlefield 2.
Hello everyone! Pittco is pleased to announce that the registration for our next event is now open! Here is some more information:

What model iPod is it? (drive size, generation)
Try re-ripping a CD or two using CDEX and load it on your iPod. A click from the hard drive doesn't necessarily mean it is failing, it simply means it's a disk read error. DRM can be the culprit here but that sound weird that it works on other...
I am selling my Sager 3880 Laptop. This laptop can play almost all new games very well and is perfect for any gamer or someone who wants a very high resolution laptop computer. This is basically an OEM Alienware laptop so it is on par with Alienware quality.

Hey everyone, I have a quick question. Is there a tool anywhere online that would allow me to monitor the voltages coming off my power supply? I know I could use a multi-meter but I just don't want to take my computer apart just for that.

I'll be getting a new card (as well as a new computer) as soon as the DX10 cards come out.
I'll probably be spending most of my time categorizing the products and working on the web site's backend. I'd decent at page layouts but I'll probably get one of my more artistic friends to do the graphics. The company has a logo already; I've seen it on their polo shirts and letterhead...
My dad recommended me to build a web site for a friend's company; they mostly distribute "As Seen On TV" merchandise. They want to include a product database for about 100 products as well as an online ordering system. I will have to design the layout of the site as well as get pictures/specs...
