    Help with a rotary tool

    Hi there chaps I'm shopping for my first rotary tool and I'm not sure what to look for. I've always been a strictly manual work person, but now I've been served a little job that doing by hand is no longer practical. I suppose it would help to list what I'd be using it for: -sanding/cleaning...

    Two years: Questionable editorial neutrality and inconsistent diction

    To Hardware Canucks and its readers, Hardware Canucks articles have become considerably... wordy since the smaller days of 2007. These are a handful of examples which have picked out from the beginning of the most recent review. From them, and from some recent articles, I have a suspicion...

    Planning, all-purpose home workstation

    Need for Speed: ProStreet

    Has anyone else played this game. So far, it's been mediocre to me. And this is coming from someone who has played the franchise religiously since the very first NFS. Discuss, gentlemen.:bananafunky:

    Mockup Workstation Build for $600-800

    Hi guys, I'm looking to assemble a workstation for relatively low finances. I don't strictly require a quad-core processor or 512MB graphics cards. I just needs to be capable for work and, above all, expandable/scalable (i.e.: I'd prefer a fully-featured, multi-socket motherboard if it's going...

    Hellgate London

    I bought the game over the weekend (yeah, I know. I bought a game!) and it's a pretty good game. However, everyone can agree that it lacks a lot of polish and is plagued with an enormous number of bugs and glitches that will often interfere with the experience. It's mostly worth the money, I'd...

    Cannot retrieve work units

    It seems like my laptop has suddenly decided to *explicit language* itself up somehow. It may have to do with when I used an ethernet hardline for the first time instead of wireless because Windows' Time and Date tool can no longer connect to the Internet to synchronize; looks like it somehow...

    New mouse recommendations

    My Logitech G7--13 months old--is almost bricked at the moment. I will need a new mouse soon to replace it and my criteria will be rather strict this time. Logitech's MX-family shell isn't really comfortable at all to me and I constantly get very painful wrist strains when holding said mold on...

    Two folding machines

    All, I've installed [email protected] onto my laptop (see signature). I've installed two instances of [email protected] console in separate folders and each console was assigned a unique CPUID (2 and 3) when being configured. [email protected] is installed on my main PC without any configuration performed; I assume it defaults to CPUID...

    GeForce Go 8600M GT 256MB

    I'm curious as to why my laptop's GeForce 8600M GT 256MB is showing me a significant clock frequency disparity. According to nVidia's official 8600M GT web page, the core/memory frequencies should be at 475MHz core and 700MHz memory, per channel, for the GeForce Go mobile video card. According...

    No progress

    After about a month of folding, I'm still seeing zero progress; a bit perplexing. I'm positive my user name is unique and that the machine is actually folding. My user stats: [email protected] So what the hell happened? Did my computer just get some insanely complex protein?

    Finding a laptop for school

    Hi guys, I've been having trouble looking for a laptop that suits my needs. This is the first time I'm shopping for a laptop (for school), so I'm sparse on leads as to where to find a laptop that suits me. I was close to shopping from Dell, however, they are supremely overcharging me for things...

    Since every other forum has a thread related to the game. My CAD$0.02: I haven't played the game or demo and am not excited about it whatsoever. I will admit, though, that the game looks very pretty, artistically. I don't even think my video card is supported!:rofl: What do you guys have to...

    Workstation displat

    Hi everyone, I need to replace my current workstation monitor--a gigantic CRT--with an LCD equivalent. After painting my room (desert gold!) and having ordered a glass-surface workdesk, I'm honestly not comfortable with placing the 40kg mini-fridge-sized CRT anywhere on it; it won't fit...
