Re: I want an HDTV... where do I start?

This is what you should grab: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001THFRH4 I've/my parents have owned 6 HDTVs; a Dell 17" LCD (720p), Vizio Plasma (720p) at 32", Vizio LCD at 32" (720p), an older 32" Sharp Aquos LCD (1080p), a Sony SXRD 1080p 52", and a Samsung DLP 1080p 56".

Re: Stupid Things You Like Anyway

That TI song "Whatever You Like" (god what a piece of catchy shit). And the Offspring is the evolution (or maybe just a side-tree...) of punk -- more pop-ish. For better (Ignition, Ixnay on the Hombre) or for worse (that godawful piece of recycled bullshit that was their last album). Offspring: Punk...

Re: Anyone else enjoying Fable 2?

Yeah, I finished up the whole thing today. Almost all the sidequests, besides beating the crucible record/shooting range record, which I don't give a flying fuck about. Great game, but has some bugs. And there's a shit ton to do, but it's all shallow as a kiddy pool. It's like going to the beach whe...

Re: So how is everyone equipped these days?

360 is my system of choice. I just killed Fable 2, and before that Lost Odyssey. Also love the XBLA stuff available on the marketplace (Castle Crashers is excellent), and Netflix streaming is killer. I play Halo 3 a few times a week, and I'm probably going to start going through GoW2, Fallout 3, Ban...

Re: About time. hd format war pretty much over, warner goes blu

Kind of makes me glad that I didn't buy either player [yet], but I feel bad for everyone who is now going to end up getting fucked since they bought an HD-DVD player. They sold some pretty solid numbers [not huge, huge] at pretty expensive prices, so early adopters are out a couple hundred plus. Alt...

Re: New PC! xD

I think what he means is that the RAM can't be dual channel at 3 GB, because they won't be a matched pair if there are only two sticks; if there are three sticks, then it isn't dual channel for obvious reasons.

Re: xbox 360 arcade, what is in it?

Just to correct Luriden's post a bit; the Pro console now includes HDMI as well. The only thing the Elite really has is a much larger hard drive.

Re: My quest to beat Kenichi's gamerscore...

I've done all of Oblivion, including the expansion. Over 50 hours invested in that game, but it was fun. You had to be at over 100 hours at least. There's no way you could get all the achievements in that game at anywhere near 50. I was done at 73 hours. If I had used the duping trick earlier in th...

Re: Mass Effect

I'm tempted to open one of the copies I have, but since I hated KoToR and only made it halfway through Jade Empire, I've restrained myself. Something tells me that if I do break down, a similar effect will be seen with Mass...um...Effect.

Insurance is good for lost items as well. Inquire at your local post office (not the dorm mail center, the real post office) about it.

Re: Drinking with overly educated people

I'd peg talking about Calculus as some high shit, not some drunk shit.

But on another note, Calculus is just about the most useless class ever. It's just pointless. Even if you're an engineer.

Ever since I started playing guitar, I really began digging Slash & [to a lesser extent] Izzy Stradlin's guitar playing. Hence the Guns N' Roses albums.

Re: Wiping a computer's hard drive

There's two partitions. I nuked the recovery partition when I did a basic format the other day. I was running out of space on my other drive and I don't know what the hell I had saved on the recovery partition (but it wasn't just the recovery stuff any more). Probably not the best of ideas, consider...

Re: Post your gaming area's! V2.75 56notoK

Stagg jokes aside, I like the neatness. I'm all about that shit when it comes to my gaming areas. I'd post mine, but I'm a bit too lazy to whip out the camera. I have a 50" Sony 1080p TV in the basement w/ 5.1 sound, and I have a 32" 1080p Sharp LCD at school.

Wiping a computer's hard drive

Long time, no post. Anyway, I really hate my laptop. Hate it. I've had it for about six months, and it's the worst computer I've ever owned (which is saying something). I'd just like to wipe the hard drive and sell it. Best way to do this would be...? It's running Windows Vista. Any help would be ap...
