    Are Your Speakers Too Big Or Too Small For Your Room?

    Oh absolutely, I was just referring to instances when people talk about those shitty bose micro cube systems with 2" speakers and think they make a room explode with sound

    Are Your Speakers Too Big Or Too Small For Your Room?

    What a bullshit article.. it's not that the speakers are bad for the "room", it's that the room is bad for the speakers. Placement is key, along with having absorption / traps if needed, as well as proper setup. I've gone through a ton of room sweeps with roomeqwizard software and a mic to...

    What Kind Of Fireworks Are Legal In Your State

    The nazi state of ct bans everything except sparklers and ground based showering type fireworks. Nothing that moves, and nothing that makes any noise I shake my head and wonder why in the hell we have "fireworks" tents in EVERY parking lot for a month prior to the 4th. Who in the hell is buying...

    Estimating The Desolation Of Google's Social Media Ghost-Town

    Hex monitor stands

    Those tykesupply stands are pretty decent.. they aren't fancy by any means, but they get the job done. We got one at work, but ended up having to drill another hole down lower in the post, so that we could mount the two arms down lower. The holes started up too high, so we just slid it down, and...

    Memorable Overclocking-Friendly CPUs

    Hah, me too! We had multiple 300a's at 504, and I had a bp6 with dual 366's at 550 with dual golden orb heatsinks. Them were the days.. I kinda gave up on overclocking as a hobby, but my main rig, a hackintosh is an overclocked 3770 at 4.4ghz with no voltage mods, and it's stable. Can't really...

    Netflix Refuses To Comply With Verizon’s “Cease And Desist”

    NVIDIA Marketing Manager Killed In Train Accident

    You are 100% right, and I feel a bit like a dick after my first comment, but generally these situations aren't a rescue gone wrong kind of thing. We had someone here at work who's son got hit by a train.. he was just walking on the tracks and got nailed. It's terrible, but that's how the...

    Thanks for the info!. I'll probably do this in the future, since I actually have a spare ergotron stacking arm, but I can't use it on this desk because of the configuration. I'm gonna wait til I move my computer stuff to another room before I attempt to do anything with it The colors on this...

    Actually nevermind! false alarm.. It just didn't like the quad monitor and dual monitor video cards in my machine at work. It works great so far on my hackintosh with a cheapy Nvidia 640GT since it's got a dedicated DVI-D dual link port, and not anything analog I will say that the stand is...

    Hm.. no bueno so far on machines here at work. On my pc, I get nothing but a blue blinking led on one videocard, and the other card (a pos) makes it display a bunch of lines If I plug it into a computer with a dp to dvi connector (non active) it goes through the whole test pattern cycle (screen...

    3840 x 1080 needs to be a format

    That's all well and good, but then you end up with a shitty 1080 width on *most* monitors. If they would make them reasonably tall, then using them portrait would be better as well. I have oldschool 1600x1200 monitors, and even at that, 1200 pixels width is the minimum I'd go. I couldn't go with...

    3840 x 1080 needs to be a format

    Really. A wide screen is basically useless if you have no height to go along with it. Just about everything on the internet, or business related is vertical, and not horizontal. I'm staring at 5 monitors in front of me, and I have 4 of the 5 turned portrait, and one landscape for connecting to...

    3840 x 1080 needs to be a format

    No way, needs more vertical pixels. I can't stand 1080 screens. Shit, give me a square screen.. 2560x2560 and I'd be happy

    Anyone looking forward to the new Mac Pro?

    Well, they want to push thunderbolt in a big way, so they figured they would sell you a cylinder of cpu and gpu power, and make you buy everything else thunderbolt. It's a smart move on their part. I myself don't really have a problem with the setup.. its not like Mac has ever been great for...

    I love how they say it's selling great, yet they don't say that it's basically impossible to buy a pre-built computer without the shitty OS. It's not like people are knocking down doors to go buy retail box copies and upgrading from something else. They fucking shove it down everyone's throats...
