Apple and Amazon Flirt With a Market For Used Digital Items

razorh With e-books (138 comments)

How about they just sell them for a reasonable price (ie. not equal to or more than physical books) at which point there would be no need for reselling.

Home Server Or VPS? One Family's Math

razorh Re:servers can get loud (380 comments)

You get used to the noise (it just becomes background white noise) after a while. I've got a 48port gb switch that was annoying for a few days but now I don't even notice it anymore. Of course, if you add a few professional grade servers to that after a while it will become hard to hear yourself think but you can get used to quite a lot.

Also.. maybe not so much re-purposed consumer grade desktop machines but server class machines tend to get louder/quieter depending on load due to the fans accommodating for power usage and heat generation so a lower user server will generate less noise overall than a high use machine.

Home Server Or VPS? One Family's Math

razorh Re:Uh.. bandwidth? (380 comments)

I bet it also doubles as a nice space heater? ;) One of the things people tend to forget about professional grade servers is that they put out a good amount of heat.

Home Server Or VPS? One Family's Math

razorh Re:Uh.. bandwidth? (380 comments)

I set up a minecraft server at home about a year ago for myself and my gf's son. The nice thing for me was that I could play in 1 perpetual world from both home and work. I wasn't really interested in hosting a server for the public but it was convenient for my purposes.

Dad Hires In-Game 'Assassins' To Get His Son To Stop Gaming

razorh Re:Just kick him out. (338 comments)

The US street are littered with kids whose parent did that instead of actual get professional help.

Really? Where? Reference? Honestly, I've never heard that parents kicking deadbeat children out of their homes was a serious source of homelessness.

Best Buy CEO Brian Dunn Resigns After $1.7 Billion Loss

razorh Re:Best Buy lies to consumers (513 comments)

There will always be faulty cables (I've tossed many a patch cable that could have been fixed with a few minutes and a new rj45 connector) when dealing with digital cabling but you will never be able to convince me that that $80 monster HDMI cable is worth buying over the similar length (or longer) $10 cable from monoprice.com.

Classic Nintendo Games Are NP-Hard

razorh Re:Kid Icarus (204 comments)

How about Target Earth that was for the Sega Genesis? I read a review on it in one of those gaming mags in the early 90's that gave it an 'Impossible' rating (the only one I'd ever seen). It took my roommate and I hours just to get through the first level (side scrolling shooter type game).

ReDigi Defends Used Digital Music Market

razorh It would be nice... (111 comments)

To see this won and applied to e-books as well. In many cases books for kindle are more expensive than paper books yet you can turn around and sell a physical book after you've read it and you (currently) can't do the same with an e-book.

Verizon Adds $2 Charge For Paying Your Bill Online

razorh Re:Ah, America! (562 comments)

Nobody said anything about living on credit. I do the same thing InterestingFella does. I use my credit card for everything bills/gas/food/etc. and then when it's time to pay my credit card off at the end of the month I do a direct one time transfer from my bank account. I'm not living on credit even the least little bit. I don't spend what I don't have and in fact keep a decent 'cushion' in the bank at all times. I haven't lived paycheck to paycheck in a LONG time. If you pay your credit card off every month there is no interest to pay, no fees, AND you get points/miles/extra cash/cheaper gas. I would say NOT doing this is stupid.

I have yet to see though, any real, solid reason to upgrade. Can anyone out there provide good, unbiased information on what Vista offers that makes it better than XP? Pretty graphics? DX10 (what's so great about DX10)? Better security....(seems to me that that is arguable)? Honestly, what reason do I have for shelling out money for a new OS and hardware upgrades? What makes Vista 'better'?"
