    Rants etc.....

    I Lol I can feel your opposite pain man... I'm home right now after spending the majority of the last 7 months away and having to deal with the wife every day can be brutal! No more doing what I want.... The upside is that I can do stuff that doesn't involve work, even if its just stuff...

    XCOM: Enemy Unknown

    I've been waiting for this game but couldn't buy it on steam. I'm working in the great white north with basic internet... I finally got some time off, drove 300km to edmonton and bought the box copy. Got back to work, installed it and steam is forcing a 2 gb update!!1...

    Take away the Metro UI, Win 8 is a winner.

    I tried it out. Nothing conventional would make it work. So I was in BB the other day and saw win 8 pro for 70 bucks and thought "why not". I'm going to reserve judgment on this for now... but I'm really quite confused. I honestly don't know who microsoft is targeting with this OS. When...

    2012 not a good year for gaming?

    Im pretty excited about prototype 2 actually. Prototype just never got the love it deserved. All to often i get games and then never play em, or start em and quickly tire, but this was a game i played through and enjoyed right to the end.

    Quality essential android apps

    Thanks Sam. I'll have to give that a go. Have you found a mounting system for your car yet? I don't suppose you other fellas could give a short description as to the function of each app?

    Quality essential android apps

    I think its about time we compiled a list of quality android apps. All these mobile markets boast bazillions of apps in their libraries which is complete BULLsit. 99.9999991% of the apps are complete trash or outright spyware disguised as something "pretty". The search feature in these...

    1 580 vs 2 570s vs 2 580s vs 3 570s as well as nVidia Surround vs 1 Monitor Gaming

    I think your putting too much thought into it. Stop looking at the tech and start enjoying games. You know what kind of horsepower I have under the hood of my babies, and they are fun, but theres something to be said about being able to just turn the game on an enjoy the game as a piece of...

    Best everyday lens

    perhaps it would be best if you could just give us a budget. we could see if there was anything in range for you at all.

    Best everyday lens

    Good question... but there is no good answer. You can look at any of canon's EF-S line of cameras which are designed specifically for camera like yours. Canon makes an 18-200mm lens, which is pretty much what your looking for, but at 800 bucks, its still not exactly "cheap" and I can tell you...

    And spend all that money you saved on film developing ;D If you intend to learn photography stick that old filmy on the shelf, get a rebel 3, 2, or 1 and learn how to shoot without the expense of film. you'll learn about 234215234 times faster because you'll see your mistakes right away, and...

    DELL. seriously... WTF. WTF?? oK, so i bought a dell. Ordered it right from the company, custom made, just the way I wanted it. I'm very VERY happy with it. It cost huge dollars but its EXACTLY what I want. Every piece. But WTF?? I get 3 pieces of MAIL from dell EVERY WEEK. Mail...

    Camera len suggestions

    3.0 Charlie makes a good point. There are even camera shops that have a good return/exchange policy. dont be afraid to swap out or return a lens that just isnt doing it for you. I was looking for a zoom in the 0 - 100mm category and returned 2 models before i was happy with the one I got and...

    Camera len suggestions

    Sorry I missed that part of your post. I'll second that, if Sigma has an 18 200 for 500 bucks, definatly go with that one.

    Camera len suggestions

    This really is a loaded question. I have to ask what you want to do with it, but how do you know as your still just new and dont know what you "can" do with it... So the better question is; How serious are you..... If your taking up photography I have to warn you that if your SERIOUS about...

    How much do you charge for PC repairs?

    printer and network installation is pretty much the only thing I'll do onsite in a person's home. I give em a choice an almost always they do printers themselves. I charge boku cash to go to houses though, so it doesnt surprise me ;D

    How much do you charge for PC repairs?

    ok some more advice. Keep a couple 2.5" 160 gig SATA drives on hand, both IDE and SATA NOT MORE THAN 160 even if they're only 10 bucks more for a 320, waste is waste. I've very very rarely seen anyone with a laptop using more than 40 gigs. (outside of HWC users.) thats 10 bucks less you...

    How much do you charge for PC repairs?

    i can see where your coming from. I spent years doing what your talking about. I made it a personal point of pride to not have to reformat, but be able to "beat" the problem. This is a great way to learn, and an important skill as you'll not be able to nuke n pave every pc you come across...

    How much do you charge for PC repairs?

    its also retarded. but each to their own. I mean, if you like to charge 200 bucks to waste your time on a computer thats prolly not been reformated in its lifetime, thats up to you, but nothing runs faster than a freshly formated computer... and thats all the customer cares about. other than...

    How much do you charge for PC repairs?

    heres some simple advice. Charge what your worth, not what you think your worth. Charge MORE to go to location and fix it. ALOT more. Enough so that they'll decide to bring it to YOU instead. Charge LESS to have them bring it to you. you can fix 5 or 6 computers at the same time in your...
