    Want to Sell Old Dell Inspiron 1501 Laptop

    Have had my old Dell Inspiron 1501 Laptop since my university days. It's been sitting, in my office without getting any use. I had thought about throwing a build of Linux on there but never got around to it. I find I just have less and less time to do these sorts of things, so maybe it can be a...

    Vancouver Canucks...

    No I don't think the Vrbata deal is bad. It's only 5 Mil for 2 years, plus he's proven he can play and put up points with less talented players in Phoenix. He's a stop gap measure sort of like Demitra while other players build their talents offensively. Overpayment is a Clarkson like contract...

    Car lease assumption

    I used lease busters last April to get rid of my car. Basically, lease busters acts as a middle man. you pay them a fee, they advertise your car for a fee (was about $400 or so iirc). Alternatively people use Craigslist to get around the fees, and I guess that can be successful, though I would...

    Did cell phone plans increase in $$$ recently?

    These new rates are ridiculous. i don't talk a whole lot on my phone, and when I do it's usually in the evening/weekends. I also hate voice mail. I pay $68 after taxes with Fido on my current plan, which I originally signed for when I got the iPhone 4 back in 2010. Since then I've had the...

    Question about the mechanics of CRPGs

    Someone with a better memory may be able to tell you more on this, but back in the day in Baldur's Gate 1, on 2nd edition D&D rules, the manual more or less gave you a shake down on how attack rolls were calculated, THAC0, saving throws etc. In game, I believe you could enable the rolls to...

    If there was one thing you'd change about a computer

    Didn't one of the Silverstone Raven cases do this?

    fan controllers again...

    yup i'll add another vote in for the Lamptron. It was super solid when I had my rig. No frills, no gimmicks, just add fan splitters and away you go!

    Hearthstone beta

    So I just played through the introductory 5 battles. Correct me if I'm wrong, and perhaps I'm missing the finer points of tactics here, having never really played any TCG, but unless there is a "tank" card, there really isn't anything stopping you from ignoring the mobs and attack the boss...

    Toronto Maple Leafs...

    hopefully Raymond does well for you, I was always a fan of his when he played here in Van. Good skillset, great hands, great skating has a a pretty accurate shot though it's not the hardeset. Does tend to fall down a lot but is a solid Pk'er. When he's on his game he'll drive the middle, and...

    iPhone 5S

    Would be nice if the phone screen extended to the edges, i mean they have the tech for redundant touches (iPad mini), that way they could keep the device the same size, and have a bigger screen. Anyways, looks like I will be upgrading from my 5...to a 5s. I need more storage, 16GB just doesn't...

    The Last of Us

    I went full vengeance on them. Such a good game. Compelling story, and kept me playing for hours at a time, which I find games don't really do nowadays.

    Vancouver Canucks...

    Worst kept secret in Vancouver, but welcome Torts. Here's hoping you can coach our team to the cup like you did Tampa.

    What is the best laptop brand? (except apple)

    I'll second the Dell Vostro. Ended up getting one for my cousin, and while it is sort of on the cheaper end in terms of build quality, it still seems like a decent laptop for under $500.

    Fast and the Furious 6

    2 Fast 2 Furious is by far the worst of the series, and Tokyo Drift, IIRC is supposed to be the end. All the new movies take place between 2 Fast 2 Furious and Tokyo Drift. In my opinion, I feel Fast and Furious (4) replicated the feeling of the 1st one the most and built it up pretty solidly.

    Your TOP 5 of the best games you have ever played

    Not in any specific order other than how they come to my mind. Chrono Trigger (SNES) - I must have beat this game every which way. Star Control II (PC) - When I played Mass Effect for the first time, I said to myself...wow it's like a new generation of Star Control...Minus the space ship...

    Fan Controllers

    I was always a fan of the Lamptron FC5...it think it cost $50-60? It worked great on my last rig. There is a newer rendition of it I believe, but the name escapes me at the moment.

    Tomb Raider comment thread

    great reboot. can't wait for the next one in the series. As a big tomb raider fan, I feel that this was a solid effort and was an absolute blast to play.

    Looking for a history book, or several...

    What about: The New Penguin History of the World by JM Roberts. I remember we used to stock it when I worked at Chapters, but not sure about now.
