Crap, it wasn't the capacitor, although the one I replaced wasn't working correctly. On closer examination of the video board, I found a scorch mark I hadn't seen before. I took the board off, and saw a matching scorch mark on the metal case. Looks like something melted, shorted with the case, and e...

I've installed ipodlinux 10 or 15 times with a Mac, gotta keep up with the releases. It's kinda hard to brick; the installer makes it a one-click process. Just don't do anything stupid like yank the cord halfway through, or have your computer run out of battery/shut down. I guess if you used somethi...

Triton, how do you know what happens? Did you read it, or are you thinking the spoiler sites out there are true? I'll just tell you now, they're all made up crap so far... Nah, about half of em are true, but since there are so many different ones, no one knows what to think. Except, of course, thos...

Just got a 2001 Toyota Corolla. I like it a lot! Dependable, easy on gas, and it handles pretty well. There's a slot in the dash big enough for a PS1 screen... hmm... :D

You probably shouldn't post the name here, if you think of it. Just sayin'.

AIM = hacker's friend. IP address can't be discovered, unlike IRC (although you can use proxies), and it takes like 5 seconds to set up a new screenname.

A) This seems like... beyond illegal, but putting that aside... B) if someone went through the trouble of scanning each page, why wouldn't they just use an OCR program...? :? Wouldn't even have to type it all out that way. No, they took the physical book, laid it flat on the ground, and took a pict...

At least someone hasn't taken the time to type the images up.

TV Won't Start Up?

I recently became the proud owner of a used 20" Norcent LCD TV, model LT-2022A. It used to work great, but then one day I came home and it wouldn't turn on. The screen goes white when you plug it in, and the status LED stays orange. Like the TV is booting up, but never completely 'gets there.' It do...

Comparison Photo . For the people saying the Zune is barely bigger than the iPod, you can't argue with that. Not only is it a great deal (relatively speaking) bigger than the largest model iPod, it just looks kind of clunkier. Other than that, I love the way it looks: its screen takes up most of th...

Strangest meat: Buffalo burgers and sometimes Nutria. Not for me though, I'll stick with beef thank you very much.

Common local stuff: Green chile burgers, green chile breakfast tacos, etc. Southwest all the way.

Refer to XboxLinux's guide for VGA. You have to patch the BIOS and you might have to build a sync-splitter if your monitor doesn't support sync-on-green.

Main points of the Microsoft press conference (for me): Bioshock trailers. Although I don't think they showed a single gameplay shot, the plot and graphics look really cool, kinda Halo-ish, but I'm not 100% sure it's a FPS. What is it? My friend claims it's an RPG. Reggie Bush whooping Jeff Bell's a...
