    These drives aren't slow by any means. I believe mine tested at 85-90mb/s via HDtune.

    Apology to calling the Comcast bandwidth violators, pirates

    :confused: That's like telling someone their web site will handle a 1000 person load fine, when in actuality their programming creates 12 MySQL connections with each page load, thus taking the server to it's knees after a whopping 83 "connections." Considering you have DSLAMs I'm going to...

    It is done on the computer, and Mister Natural covered the process to a T. Try it, see what happens.

    IP release and Internet

    169 is an APIPA address, as you already know. Reinstall the TCP stack and see what happens, make sure that it can ping the router, etc.

    Apology to calling the Comcast bandwidth violators, pirates

    Yep. And then you'll be forced to find alternatives, which, in this federal-monopoly country, are few and far between unless you're in a major city.

    You also sign their contract which clearly states that they can disconnect and cancel you at anytime, for any reason.

    What helpdesk software do you use?

    Not a very descriptive post, what's your budget, open source, etc. I'll throw out the generic "Spiceworks" which is a neat tool.

    We've got a thread about the same drive albeit a different vendor and price point, look there for reviews. I love mine thus far.

    SAMSUNG Spinpoint F1 750GB & 1TB SATA (32MB Buffer) HDD @ ZipZoomFly ~ $110 & $185

    Damn, I already ordered and installed one - that runs flawlessly. This is so tempting. But I quickly realized how far away I am from filling up one 750g (684 or so NTFS formatted). I think that I'm down to around 500g with everything I wanted to copy over, copied. It's insane.

    EVGA B Stock - Video Cards & Motherboards for cheap! 8800 GTX for $299.00

    With as many times as I've RMA'd EVGA/79xx cards, I don't see this as a good idea at all.

    SAMSUNG Spinpoint F1 750GB & 1TB SATA (32MB Buffer) HDD @ ZipZoomFly ~ $110 & $185

    I'm about to grab two tomorrow. Ugh, I need to save money. ZZF does some wacky price changes though. For instance, if you add these drives to your wishlist, they show up as $124.99. There was some deal the other day with an XFX card, it was listed as $199 and a rebate around 4AM. Low and...

    Crysis: 30-50fps HIGH config Looks Fab!

    I'm guessing by base he means the root folder. And you need to make an autoexec.cfg text file, not a folder, and paste the text into it.

    Gaming with comcast higher speeds

    Wait until Verizon converts from BPON to GPON. That will be incredible, finally. "GPON can deliver a total pool of 2.4 Gbps down and 1.2Gbps up for the 32 households. Right now Verizon is testing that in Pennsylvania, seeing peak rates of 400Mbps down and sustained rates of 200Mbps. 200Mbps."...

    Right, I was lying. And 6/x is crap. But I also don't live in the boonies, and never would, so I'm really not sympathetic. I had 15/2 FIOS 2 1/2 years ago.

    Looking for some "social" MP games

    I'm quite shocked by TF2 players, I was expecting the VOIP to be a cesspool like CSS, but honestly it's great. I cant recall any times where some moron got on and spammed or anything like that.

    Gaming with comcast higher speeds

    What you ultimately want is low latency in gaming. To achieve this you're best off finding servers that are hosted at NOCs that directly peer with your service provider. This will provide the least number of hops. Laymens terms example; I have 20/20 FIOS, but my data center where several...
