    5 years... It's time.

    I haven't upgraded my board and processor since 9/8/2009. I used to be big into over clocking and upgraded every 6 months. But competing hobbies have taken me away from the cycle and for a long time it wasn't financially worth upgrading for such a small percentage gain. I've been thinking...

    Mercedes Delivers Its First F-Cell Vehicle

    Where does electricity come from? If you live in the US probably a coal plant. The Nissan leaf takes 7 hours to charge on 220 volts. it's like leaving your oven on 7 hours a day every day. What to you think that would do to out already taxed electric grid or your wallet? Plug in cars are...

    What do you use to control your HTPC?

    What input device do you use for a dedicated HTPC? I'm using the Lenovo N5901 but find the keys very small and the track ball a little cumbersome. I do like its small size though. Full size keyboard and mouse is out of the question for me. I wish I could get a Wii remote to work with my HTPC.:D

    HULC Exoskeleton System Ready for Soldier Tests

    I got to Wainwright in Dec of 86. I thought it was weird that we drove an hour south to Greely the cold weather testing facility. I wonder how this HULC would have worked at minus 60?

    HULC Exoskeleton System Ready for Soldier Tests

    I was in the Army 86-89 and was the RTO (radio telegraph operator) in an Airborne Infantry unit and carried the PRC77 or the Prick77 as we called it. It used really heavy mercury batteries. I was stationed in Alaska so I also had to carry all of my cold weather gear, ammo and food. My pack...

    Israeli Raid Called Off After Facebook Slip

    Wow I just read that article. Can you imagine if we tried to treat the detainees at Gitmo that way. We treat our own soldiers worse than enemy combatants. I don't disagree with Club Eds procedures I disagree with our soft treatment of enemies that want to kill us.

    I need an SSD education

    would two cheap 40gb or 30gb ssd drives in raid 0 for about $260 be a worthwhile investment over a larger single SSD? Main use would be photo editing. I'd also be using a Velociraptor 300GB drive as my storage drive and installing apps and my home directory on it.
