  1. May be a rediculous question, but what constitutes tier 5?
  2. We do leave the house, and may have gone farther than you have! The thing is, I'm just not a photography addicted person. When I go somewhere, I like to experience first hand and keep that picture memory in my head. I'm not the annoying guy snapping 20, 000, 000, 000 pictures of every little thing that they see. "Hey kids! Crouch around that roach on the sidewalk so I can take a picture! How cute!"
  3. Can't do that since your truck broke down and all your money is going to replacing your real tree collection that was burned up in your trailer!
  4. IMO....3d gaming has it's place for fighting and adventure games. However, to me, it is just a gimmick to sell hardware. Stick with what you can afford at the moment go from there. From my personal experience, NVIDIA has always been better when it comes to gaming, but AMD/ATI has always been better at video playing. I recently had to switch out a brand new Nvidia GT520 card for my old HD 4850 to use in my HTPC due to known issues with audio/video syncing when playing back movies on the TV. If your TV has a DVI connection, use that if you intend to game. The downside is that you cannot use the TV speakers for audio, as DVI does not have an audio throughput like HDMI. Just food for thought. Also, I'd recommend against spending a bunch of money on an extra vid card for physX. Look on the NVidia website for a list of physX compatible cards, then search ebay or the forums here to see if someone has an old card to use for it. You DO NOT need to have an extremely powerful card for physX. Currently, I am running a GTX 580 as my main card, and an old 8800GT for my physX. I do like the difference I see from physX, but others may not.
  5. It'd be very curious to see what this looks like when you finish. The only downsides that I can think of by doing this is 1) the heat created by the light 2) loss of airflow if you use some sort of reflective shield to strengthen the beam of light 3) the brightness keeping you up at night. Otherwise, it does sound like an interesting idea. I kind of think it would almost be like one of those alarm clocks that displays the time on the ceiling. Keep us posted and remember pictures!
  6. HAHAHA....sounds like a country song in the making!
  7. I need a recommendation for an all in one printer/scanner/fax. Here is what I'm looking for from this device: 1) Small and portable - I am going to start travelling here shortly as an RN, and want something smaller, lighter than the average 50lb monster I see in hospitals. 2) Ink ribbon - I don't use a printer for very much. The last one I had, the ink cartridges dried up sometime before I went to use it last. Ribbons are already dry, thus eliminating that problem. 3) All-in-one - The least amount of extra devices, the better. Printer/scanner/fax for all my needs in one unit. 4) Quality doesn't have to be picture perfect, but want it to look professional as well. Monochrome is perfectly fine for me. 5) The device does not have to be wireless. I have USB ports to which to connect it. 6) Budget - ~$200 bones 7) Color doesn't matter as long as it does the job. 8) Would like to go with a style of laser printer (see 2 and 4). I will NOT buy another Dell all-on-one printer. That was my last one, and the experience with it was constant problems. Other brands I've heard of are lexmark, brother, HP, Kodak. I would really like to hear from someone that has found what I'm looking for, or has a recent purchase within the last year of something comparable.
  9. My older brother dropped his external hard drive a while back, and it stopped working immediately. He really, really wants to get the data off of it, as it has a lot of pictures from when he was stationed in Africa. I need a recommendation from someone that has either gone through this process, or does the hard drive recovery. Who should i send it to? I know it isn't guaranteed to get any data back, but I would also like a ballpark figure of the cost. Thanks ahead of time.
  10. TY for the contest bosco and the rest of OCC! Merry Christmas to all!

    I started my early access today. You can find me on the server "the Shadowlands," under the name XXIV.
  12. I haven't read the links yet, but this makes me wonder if it is a legal way for the government to jail terrorists. For instance, take the inmates at G-MO. You make them become US citizens, and under this law, you can jail them indefinitely for anything you conceive that they have or haven't done. That keeps foreign countries from asking too many questions about their previous citizens as to their whereabouts, treatment, or ability to be released. It may also quash the ability of the UN to file charges against the US gov for illegal detention of foreign nationals.
  13. WOW Bosco....I'm quite impressed...that has to be the most things I've seen in a Christmas contest the years I've been here.
  14. I would have to say that back in the day, I absolutely loved Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6: Ravenshield. I played countless hours of that game in clan matches and just for fun. I can't begin to tell you how much sleep I lost, or how much time I filled in between work and on call for work.
  15. blue.....no red! AAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!
