    Network drop cost

    A WoW Graphical Update?

    Current info mixed with speculation is that in the next expansion there will be some updates to textures, lighting, etc, and other minor upgrades. Probably along the same lines as the transition from original WoW to BC (possibly a little more). There is no evidence that it will be as substantial...

    Early Tri Core look

    I'm guessing that he was saying joe average consumer or desktop workstations, as opposed to enthusiasts. Although I don't agree with the terminology that they're pushing tri-core. I think it's just a smart way to recoupe defects. Lemonade and all that.

    I wish they would get Morrowind going on it, but I'm pretty confident it won't happen. Alas. :)

    An Apple Store At 3am

    Google Plans Service to Store Users' Data

    I would be all over this as a 'safe' and remote location to store things like backups of music, pics, etc. But the fact that Google will have their little eyes all over everything I own really turns me off. Undecided. On a different thought, what's to keep people from using this as a their...

    Corporate back up solution - suggestions

    We backup 400GB to a LTO3 nightly, Exchange fits neatly on a 72GB DAT (for now). And we do a weekly backup to disk on both as well. Tapes are clunky, but mostly reliable in my limited experience. Hard disk backups and shadow copies make life much easier when users do something stupid. The...

    Thanks for all the feedback. I'm starting to slowly look into all of these. So far I've only tried Spiceworks, but I'll try to check into everything mentioned.

    Helpdesk Ticketing Software

    What do you guys use? We're big enough now that we need to get some sort of simple ticketing system going so we can track things and assign stuff out to others who might be on another shift, etc. Open source is great, paid is ok too as long as it's reasonable. Windows is preferred over Linux...

    Decent WAP for SMB

    What would you guys recommend for a WAP for a SMB based on the following criteria? I need to install 3 at the main facility and one at a branch office. I definitely don't need Aironet quality - a good reliable D-Link or somesuch would be much preferred. Need: WPA2 (radius not required) G...

    Cert's for IT's?

    Short version: if the guy who is hiring you has certs, he will want you to have certs. If he doesn't, he won't care. Certs can also help you get past the useless HR buzzword screening. They're good to have if you have the applicable knowledge to back them up.

    Target Not Going “Blu-ray Only”

    It wasn't a quote from an Exec or something, it was a press release. Target is selling BD in stores. They're also selling HDDVD on the website. The press release, with the phrase "exclusive product", would have you to believe that Target has dropped HDDVD altogether. So while you could...

    Target Not Going “Blu-ray Only”

    Google Sued Over Tax Exemptions

    Agreed, happens nearly everyday. Look at every single one of these foreign auto plants in the southeast - they all went to the spots where the local government ponied up the most tax breaks. As much as I think Google is Skynet, there's nothing out of the ordinary here.
