I agree with vskid. Tiny laptops at under 400 dollars sort of make the whole PCp crusade pointless. God, all those wasted weeks back in 2005.... If anyone rereads those old threads tom61 posted, make sure to marvel at how far prices have dropped since then! :P Also, the unatainable Nano-ITX's have b...

I was dissapointed when dropping the small portal through a larger one didn't lead to the destruction of the universe :(

As size decreases PCportables become increasingly difficult to do. Have you put any thought into how big this thing will be when finished?

Devil's advocate here, telling you that the artists who make music don't actually get too much compensation from the record companies.
And if you steal from the record comanies, they get even less :P

Is this legal for them to be doing? Is it legal for your roommates to steal? Really, this is just like people complaining about cops going undercover to catch speeders. Being the law-abiding citizen you are, what do you have to worry about? How can you begin to condemn other people for breaking a l...

Just dug out the Dreamcast and ordered a fresh copy of Skies of Arcadia. First time in forever I've been excited about getting a console game, albeit a rather old one! Speaking of but entirely unrelated to that, the official release date for Spore has been set sometime in September. I suspect I'll l...

The fun outwighs the risk.
Going for a swim is worth dieing for? In this case the risk is the thing attracting people, but there are much safer ways to get adrenaline pumping.

I have a hard time believe people could be stupid enough to do something like this. Oh, I believe its real and people swim there, just the sheer stupidity of it all is staggering.

I've been playing World of Warcraft I knew someone would mention a (real) online RPG eventually. My account on Everquest 2 is over 1400 days old, and I can reasonably assume an average of an hour a day. I've dumped countless hours into endless games like Civilization III, IV, Alpha Centauri, and th...

This actually confuses me. Usually, the popularity of a system determines how many game developers support it. The more systems sold, the more games sold, and the more they make. This has been true for quite a while, but for some reason it doesn't seem to apply to the Wii. Of course, the real reason...

Life is easier when you accept that all people are evil and selfish by nature, and thus below you and unworthy of the rights they take for granted.

Keep in mind I am a idiot.
Even I can afford an HDTV, and I work at Gamestop :roll:

Been looking at some nice 37" LCD TV's for 600-700 bucks, though I'm not sure where I'd put it if I got it.

Having worked at a Gamestop for several months now, I can tell you that "sent to the warehouse" is just a catch-all phrase used to describe any number of things. Most defective items are marked "return to warehouse," for instance. Items sent to "the warehouse" are either repaired and redistributed t...

Is any scientific or technological advancement purely good or bad? Any advancement is good I say, and this will probably lead to some improvements in medicine. There will always be people willing to use any technology to kill or harm.

Could there be local phenomena effecting ships and planes? Perhaps.

But really, technology fails. Machines break. I doubt anything otherworldly or evil or magic or alien is to blame.
