Hard Drive Shortage Relief Coming In Q1 2012

voodoowizard Re:Market pressures. (205 comments)

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

voodoowizard Re:And money changes hands... (373 comments)

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.

Budapest Panorama, at 70GP, Now the World's Largest Digital Photo

voodoowizard More beer (207 comments)

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.

MechWarrior 4 Free Release Now Available

voodoowizard MTX client sucks. (151 comments)

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) Main file: Patches: I have not tried this yet but there is a mod for the game Crysis that pretty much turns it into a MW game. Probably still a bit buggy but I am sure it looks a lot better.

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.

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.

eBay vs. Craigslist Courtroom Fisticuffs Start Today

voodoowizard Re:In Smaller Markets, Kijiji Dominates (129 comments)

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?)

voodoowizard Re:Pointless hype (275 comments)

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

voodoowizard Re:Whodathunk (260 comments)

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

voodoowizard no thanks (540 comments)

I will still use my free 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.
