    Has Blizzard traditionally had "Christmas" sales? I'm considering picking up D3 though I have a feeling this deal will be back again with maybe a bigger discount?

    eBay Lawsuit of the Day

    The reason they have the current proxy bidding system is to prevent "auction sniping". This was one of the biggest complaints back in the earlier days of ebay (late 90s).

    HDDs so expensive ... should I buy an external and rip it open for a new build?

    don't externals typically come with a crappier warranty? and that's assuming you're able to put it back together perfectly after voiding the warranty to begin with

    Check Data Integrity of Backups?

    I thought I read an article that the new WHS2011 was going to protect against bit-rot (at an additional cost of 12% disk space) but now I can't find any information about this. I guess MS dropped this feature. Do RAID setups protect against bit-rot? Particularly if you do regular data scrubs?

    Newegg: HITACHI Deskstar 3TB $109

    I still fail to see the difference between THICK bubble wrap (newegg) vs a styrofoam container (retail box). IMO thick bubble wrap seems to provide more cushion. Maybe the duds people are getting are "defective" returns that Newegg resold?

    i connect from my work PC to my home PC fairly often (both are running Windows 7). after 5 mins or so, the session times out with the message "Your Remote Desktop session has ended." is there a way to bump that time-out limit up or eliminate it completely? i searched this forum and also did...

    WHS driving me Nucking Futs

    not sure if this is your problem but worth a shot my WHS runs "chkdsk" on every drive at 12am every night. if i'm streaming any movies during this time things definitely bog down. maybe yours is setup to run at 10pm. check your event viewer/application log

    MPC Home Cinema 32/64 bit difference?

    it can bitstream DD/DTS. go to options, double-click DTS under transform filters, and choose SPDIF. but you're right you need ffdshow for HD sound.

    PS3 folding question

    if it's a launch 20/60gb PS3, i'd be a little wary of folding on it since they're kinda valuable and Sony doesn't make them anymore. you'd want to prolong it's life as long as possible. from what i've read, the PPD->watt ratio is horrendous compared to what you could get with GPU or SMP folding

    Can I power a 2nd GTX460 with this PSU?

    sorry to kinda thread hijack but could that same 750tx "sufficiently" power an i7 (3.8ghz), a 480gtx (stock), and a 460gtx (stock)? the 460gtx will be used for physx or a 3rd screen
