    PAX East

    Anyone from vt.net going? Just received my badge today. I'm making the trip out from Chicago to go Friday. This will be my first time going to PAX (or any gaming type of convention before), so I'm pretty excited.

    5 Year Old Laptop GPU Dead - Time For An Upgrade, I Guess

    For starters: At this point, I'm not even looking to fix this thing. The problem lies with the GPU which is soldered ever so nicely onto the board. It's an ASUS Intel CoreDuo 2.4Ghz w/ 4gb of ram and an Nvidia 9500m w/ 512mb (lol). So, **** it. It's time for a long needed upgrade. Here it...

    Just wondering if this is legitimate. It is from "[email protected]", but the email has a strange format in my client.

    Should I venture into the Playstation realm?

    Well, here's the lowdown. I just purchased a new 47" LCD and want to satisfy it. I've previously committed to buying a PS3 and a few games, but now I'm starting to get cold feet. I already have a 360, but I feel as if I'm missing out on games like Killzone, Resistance, Uncharted, MGS4, etc...

    Another Building a Computer Thread

    A friend of mine needs help with putting a tower together, so he requested my assistance today. I had him email a list of the parts he wanted so that I could do a little research and see if any potential problems could arise. Here's what he wants: He's basically going all in with AMD. Good...

    Resident Evil: Afterlife

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_m8PlIVUbXA Loved the first one, but the movies certainly diminished in quality after that. APC in the trailer was a nice touch; that's actually one of my favorites by them. Also, Milla Jovovich is hot.

    A Little of My Photography

    This is all stuff from my high school AP class a few years ago. I've basically completely lost any interest in photography due to the amount of stress and lack of free-time my studies require. I'd like to start up again later in life once I have more time and can afford a new digital (these were...

    Joah Hex

    Just saw the commercial today. Looks awesome, but in a Tarantino/Rodriguez kind of way. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTrfcSJFO60 Wish Megan Fox wasn't in it though. Also, "On September 2, 2009, Ain't it Cool News reported that heavy metal band Mastodon are scoring the film and have been...

    iPhone 4G found on bar floor...

    At least Engadget thinks it's the 4G. http://www.engadget.com/2010/04/17/iphone-4g-is-this-it/ **** you Apple for making me want this thing. EDIT: I guess this is actually the real deal. Engadget spotted this device a few months ago in one of Apple's test labs. The photo is pretty grainy...

    Cigarette Taxes (U.S.)
