  • paniz68, why did you just quote the original question? Man... I never post on Icrontic anymore. Thanks, email notifications, for bringing me back. But seeing this from nearly 4 years ago makes me feel like my intelligence has greatly declined. …
  • I just checked my hardware. My desktop's LAN ports are Realtek 8110SC and 8111B, and my HTPC uses Realtek 8111C, all of which claim to feature "Automatic Crossover Detection" I guess I'll just go with a straight-through cable and run some benchma…

  • My company uses Packet8 VoIP. When I travel for work (which is frequently), I pack up my Packet8 BPA410 Adapter and a cordless phone to connect to it. I'm looking to lighten my load by getting rid of the external phone, base, headset & power a…
  • Good call, jokke. I managed to score a couple of the SteelSeries 5H V2's from the most recent woot-off, to replace my current 4H headset. I can't wait for them to arrive... not that I don't like the 4Hs. I'm just looking forward to the cloth braided…

  • I picked up a SteelSeries SteelSound 4H headset from Woot a couple months ago and I LOVE it. http://www.steelseries.com/us/products/audio If you have the money, I would recommend the 5H, as they only use 1 cord to 1 earphone as opposed the 4H's …

  • uggggh... of course, as soon as I posted this, it started working again.
  • I realize that it's not the best investment for a gamer since it's a DX9 card and not DX10. But I really want to sell this card, so I'm open to offers.
  • primesuspect wrote: you know... It kills me to see a site with such a low caliber review like that make it to CES and get free stuff. wtf. I agree. Icrontic reviews have always been excellent. And that review was faaar from excellent.
  • I wish I knew someone that owned one of these... it seems like the kind of thing I would only need to use once in a very long while.
  • Yes, please let us know how it goes. I really have no interest in paying money to get these monitors to match up, but if it works like a charm... I might consider it.
  • Ok, I just bought a replacement from eBay for $45 shipped. Let's hope it works...
  • I found this on another forum, and it didn't work either 1. Click Start, and then click Run. 2. In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK. 3. Locate and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/CurrentControl…
  • I uninstalled Nero & MusicMatch, and it still won't read CDs. Any other suggestions?
  • No, I have not uninstalled burning software yet. I'll give that a try later.
  • I looked on The Elder Scrolls website and didn't see a demo for morrowind (I'm not really surprised). They do have some videos to download: http://www.elderscrolls.com/downloads/media_movies.htm I recommend watching the official trailer. That…
  • I agree that Morrowind can easily become too easy. Thankfully there are some good mods out there that make the game harder for those with badass characters.
  • Ok, so it's been two months. pyobliE, Coaster, Zecter... you guys modded yet or what? I've got the DMS X-Bit modchip. Solderless. Can be connected to PC via USB and have bios flashed. External switches to disable the modchip. Have a 120gb 8mb cac…
  • Sounds orgasmic. Thanks for the links.

  • FYI the link has changed to: http://opensource.arc.nasa.gov/software.jsp?id=10 EDIT: ... and it's 253MB in case you were wondering
  • Does seniority/oldschool-edness count? I've been around Icrontic since summer of 2001... maybe not much in the past year and a half, but still...
  • Yeah, I read this story in Playboy... talk about killing the mood
  • I used to have an avatar on Icrontic that surpassed all. It was a looped gif of Michael Bolton from Office Space repeatedly slamming his fist into the printer on the ground. Of course, that was like 3 years ago before Icrontic changed administration…
  • I voted for C++ because... well like EMN said, C++ > * However, I think Sun has realized that Java will never be the next great way to make simple utility applications. They are focusing more on Java Server Pages and Servlets. I think the c…
    in C++ or Java? Comment by Kyle Jun 2003
  • It's the northbridge... the one with the slick-looking heatpipe. You can see the pictures at the Newegg link I posted.
  • I understand that this board has a lot of problems. I've dealt with the fickleness when it comes to RAM. I'm still pretty sure that it's the overheating that locks up my system. The heatsink on the chipset burned my finger... even with good ol' fa…
  • Well I guess I stand corrected. It was my understanding that Crysis is not backwards-compatible with DX9, but I that wiki says otherwise. Keep in mind though, that site says The System Requirements for Crysis have not yet been released. There ar…
