Hard Drive Shortage Relief Coming In Q1 2012
Yeah it was great when my HD failed and I am now still limping along with a stupid noisy drive I had for back up. Can't wait for the prices to drop. Yay, what a good thing.
Adblock Plus To Offer 'Acceptable Ads' Option
Weird, I guess since I use noscript and adblock I never see the "huge ass banner".
Yup, made some allowances and yikes. Turn that stuff of right now again.
I do allow ads on forums I frequent. Mostly I guess it is because they are relative to my interests.
AVG 2011 Update Causes Widespread Problems For 64-Bit Windows
Wine seems to have a problem with punkbuster. Meaning at least for me last year, no CoD MW1 online.
Budapest Panorama, at 70GP, Now the World's Largest Digital Photo
Bah! I liked it and I guess I had silverlight installed. Some drunk night?
Anyways, I think the picture is pretty cool. Makes me think I am in some movie crime lab and can zoom in to read a license plate on a car I could not see to begin with. Well of course I still need my depixelator.
The 'Back' Button the Most Clicked Firefox Icon
Ahhh wow, I never tried that middle mouse button... damn that is nice. You just opened up a new world for me and I have been using FF for years. Learning is fun.
Man Smuggles an Amazing Amount Into Jail With His Portable Hole
Thankfully that picture is not related to the actual article. It kinda of scared me, I though they arrested goatse.
MechWarrior 4 Free Release Now Available
For those of you that hate the MTX client. Download the torrents and rename the extension from .mtx to .zip
No need to "install", the zip opens up to a functional game. Just unzip to where you want it and then apply the patches manually(kind of like oblivion/fallout3 mods).
Here are the torrents if you wish to skip the MTX client hell. (via reddit)
I have not tried this yet but there is a mod for the game Crysis that pretty much turns it into a MW game. http://www.mechlivinglegends.net/ Probably still a bit buggy but I am sure it looks a lot better.
RPG Heroes Are Jerks
Michael Emerson was in that video...? I guess he is from Pennsylvania.
Popular Science Frees Its 137-Year Archives

Students Charged With Felony Snowball Throwing
Okay these two are complete morons but a felony charge? I think that is a bit much. 100 days community service with a misdemeanor charge.
GM Is Selling Saab To Spyker Cars
So now a crappy ugly car gets built buy a car company that make ugly fast cars....
Duke Nukem 3D Ported To Nokia N900
Jeez I see duke nukem on a /. headline and think "WHAT!" don't tease me anymore. Then I realize it is for some stupid phone and some game that I played many years ago, not going to do it again.
Piss of Duke, I am done with you.
Gigantic Spiral of Light Observed Over Norway; Rocket To Blame?
This was posted a few months ago but I have no idea when it happened. Look similar...
Just skip to 35 seconds unless you can speak Chinese.
eBay vs. Craigslist Courtroom Fisticuffs Start Today
Wow, in my town of around 30,000 and the surrounding town where the sites actually point to(Total pop just over 100,000). There is nothing on kijiji. Craigslist dominates here for sure. When the site was launched I heard about it but soon forgot.
Heck there is even an auction site based out of my town and I can't find anything on it, worse than kijiji here as far as users.
Just my experiences, ya know, not scientific.
How Does the New Google DNS Perform? (and Why?)
Just ask yourself one question, if you don't trust your internet provider enough to do DNS correctly, should you trust them at all?
Well no and yes. I just really hate the redirects and would prefer to use something like OpenDNS.That and I have a feeling that OpenDNS is more proactive in filtering fishing sites. Do I really care? No, it was just easy to switch so I did. Should this be big news? Hell no.
Now would I use GoogleDNS if there was no other options. Maybe I would, I mean I primarily use google to search, it's not like they don't know what I am doing most of the time from that. It is easier for me to type youtube in the search then click the link as apposed to finding it in my favorites or typing all those letters in the address bar.
Virgin Galactic Unveils SpaceShipTwo
Machinist, then an engineer from what I can tell. The things you might expect. I got Ford and the history of the Daisy BB gun confused. Buy a wind mill get a free air rifle. Sometimes Coffee is a better choice than beer.
Google Launches Public DNS Resolver
I will still use my free http://www.opendns.com/ servers. The only redirect you get is a search page with is this what you mean. Other than that it will still try and get you where you want to be while also blocking a variety of sites, by your own choosing.
Toyota Experimenting With Joystick Control For Cars
Everyone knows a good Logitech G27 wheel will be the best upgrade option, force feedback FTW
Warez Moving From BitTorrent to Conventional Hosting Services
For me, the death of dial up with a free newsgroup service killed it. Now I have to pay...? Bah, screw that, why pay when... ah never mind.
