    DELL KACE. Anyone worked with this?

    I seem to recall that we had the same issue when we first setup KACE. However, I can assure you that what you are wanting for KACE is possible. I'll have to ask around and see what we did to fix that issue. But now, when I image an existing PC, even giving it a new name, KACE re-uses the...

    DELL KACE. Anyone worked with this?

    I use KACE everyday at work. What do you want to know? Are your duplicate entries in inventory after you re-name or re-image a PC?

    Amazon Announces Prime Air Drone Delivery

    I'd imagine that when you sign up for this service amazon would send you some sort of GPS locator to mark the future landing zone for airments. That would be cool since you mark your deck or back yard as the drop off location (no more packages left by the front door). As far as shooting at...

    Sony Trying To Patent Commercials In Your Games

    Many free mobile games already do this. For example, Battleship Free on iTunes has a full screen ad or commercial between every round. I tolerated it at first, but then I got so sick of the Cspire commercial I deleted the game. But, I guess that was the point of the commercial, for me to...

    Official [H] Star Wars:The Old Republic Thread

    Well, the devs say they actually see the number of players increasing. They have kept the server caps artificially low to keep the starting areas from being overcrowded. As players move up in levels, and onto other planets, they are raising the server caps. I've see this with Rail Shot on my...

    I assume you have no FPS problem. Can you take you video card and test it in his system? That will either confirm it's a video card/driver problem, or point to something else in his system.

    In case anyone didin't know, CRTL+SHIFT+F to show FPS (in bottom left corner). I'm getting around 25-35 FPS at 1920x1200 with shadows on high. Putting shadows on low I get around 40 FPS. This on the fleet where I have the lowest FPS. Check and make sure you aren't focing AA or other settings...

    SWTOR = another Hero On A Rail game?

    LOL - the color = rarity system started with Diablo, not WoW. Anyway, what you are essentially saying is that every RPG is a clone of Diablo, every FPS is a clone of Doom, every RTS is a clone of Dune II, etc. Thus why do we play anything since every new game is simply a copy of what came before?

    Official [H] Star Wars:The Old Republic Thread

    And the devs have said that UI changes are a high priority and coming soon. GTN (AH) changes are also coming, just not as soon as we hope. That would be great. The devs have mentioned that small incremental changes will coming to space combat over the next year.

    You must still be on Hutta. Have you got you first companion, or your ship? You get your companion around level 8-10 and your ship around 17-20. I'm playing a bounty hunter as one of my several characters and I really like him. I think the dialog is very appropriate and I find the story is...

    You will enjoy the game if you like characters that have a story. You can play it single player, with friends, or the occasional grouping with strangers, and have a good time. I have a Jedi Sentinel that I only play with a couple of friends (all leveling together), and I have a smuggler and a...

    No wonder Gamepro is being shut down. :p Seriously, I'm not sure what the reviewers were wanting. In one instance they say they want innovation and new features, then in the next they say all they want to do is skip said feature (dialog). I find this very interesting because the overriding...

    bf3 - snipe so hard

    I'm not sure. So, I just tried posting the youtube link to the Battlefield wall. Looks like it might have worked. EDIT: Looks like the link was hidden shortly after posting as it's not on the BF page, but my wall still shows it.

    Star Wars - The Old Republic Test Weekend. Anyone else playing?

    The hate is strong in these posts. I had a great time participating in the beta test this past weekend. The game felt like a Star Wars game. I'll admit that it stuck the standard MMO mold more then I would like, but it's understandable. However, the spoken dialog, especially in the...

    I got the error 3200 as well. I just kept trying until it went through. The update will backup your device and then do a restore afterwards. The whole process took about 30 minutes for me (after about a hour or repeated attempts). I suspect what's happening to a lot of people is they are...

    Netflix Removing "Add to DVD Queue" from Streaming Devices

    No, but DVDs don't package and ship themselves either. I'd wager they are probably adding tens/hundreds of TBs or more in storage per week. Each NAS box is going to be in a RAID setup, plus I'm sure there is at least one hot standby for each, and that spread across multiple data centers. I'm...
