Working at any place will suck if the people there aren't ones you like. I work at K-Mart and the work is the same 'ol thing you'll find at any department story. The only real difference between these stores is the people working there. Find a place with people you wouldn't mind working with, becaus...

Looking to buy ODCM's...

Anyone willing to sell any of them to me? I'd prefer the entire magazine run, but anything will do. I'm offering trades and cash depending on how much you'd demand.

Honda's used to be great. Not so much anymore. With Nissan you're looking at mad staying power. They're coming up out of a slump and doing everything right. They've realised the better you make your cars the less you have to pay out in warrenties. I am a Nissan fanboy. Personally I'd look at anythi...

The best two companies as far as overal reliability across product lines are Nissan and Toyota. Honda, VW, and Volvo are pretty good too, but Nissan and Toyota are pretty much the only two companies where you could arbitrarily pick any model without having something to "watch out" for. Other than t...

Buying a car - need advice/suggestions...

So right now I'm still stuck with my 98 Passat (no C70 yet), but i've decided to just buy a new car instead of pouring money into my old one. I've got around 15k to spend and the word "used" isn't taboo in my book, but "american" is. Currently looking at a Scion Tc, Civic and Mazda 3's for new car c...

Microsoft bought out a portion of the company, which allowed them to continue to use the rumble feature without having to pay royalities.

Aren't they required to? If not, don't a lot of banks reimburse all money taken from your account without your approval?

Unfortunately healthly eating won't prevent a heart attack, but only delay it. Every male on my father's side has terrible hearts. My fathers father died when he was in his 30s and my dad probably has 4-5 years left (hopefully more). You should first find out more about it and see if it's genetic. Y...

What kind of connection does the HDTV have? If it's DVI, you'll need a videocard that has DVI inputs and then a DVI cable. There are 3 different types of DVI connections so figure out which one is yours (DVI-D?). Cables are sort of expensive depending on the length and make, but it shouldn't be too...

Nay. I just don't like how there isn't a general gaming forum so I try to startup some conversations about games and systems.
