An up to date guide on how to build the best gaming computer for your dollar! Continue reading

To build a great gaming computer is not as easy as it seems. Especially if your on any type of budget. You can't just buy the best graphics card (the part the does all the three dimensional calculations) or the fastest CPU and pair them up with other sub-par parts. A computer system is only as fast as its' slowest part. Often called a bottleneck as the flow of data no matter how fast it can travel down the pipe can only go as fast as the "bottleneck" or slowest section will allow. So your system needs balance. If you... Continue reading

I just made a new guide to building the best gaming computer for $700 check it out on my blog: http://technomaniac.comze.com/?p=335 I hope at least to come out with an up to date build every few weeks. What good is a guide if it is out of date? If you search google for a guide on how to build a computer for the purpose of gaming you will find many old articles. This article is for those computer gaming enthusiasts who want to get the most bang-for-your-buck when buying computer hardware. The key to building the most optimal computer configuration...

If you are not among the multitude of people who use Google's gmail as your default e-mail you might want to switch. Those of you who have it already no doubt have logged in to see an introduction for Buzz, Google's new social networking system. I have used Myspace and Face-book and I will admit I am not a social networking addict, I really like Google Buzz better. For one I check my email constantly! And on the side bar it lets me know I have updates on my Google Buzz "wall" of sorts. I probubly sounds really lazy but... Continue reading

A while ago I purchased an iHome 8 button programmable mouse on sale at Radio Shack because it was cheap and ergonomic. To my displeasure I find that only two of the buttons are programmable and limited to only a certain number of preselected options. So I set out to get all my buttons to be programmable (even in games) and I did, with the exception of the DPS button of my mouse which I'm sure only effects the internal workings of the mouse and doesn't communicate with the computer at all. This guide should work on other Human Interface... Continue reading

I just made a new post on my other blog about building the best gaming computer for your money right now. The problem with most gaming computer building guides is they are out of date and the author doesn't take the time to update them. To get the most bang for your buck you need to us an up to date guide. I use my years of computer experience to take the thinking out of your next computer build and get your the most frames for your dollar.

Wow, well thanks for responding. :) I think it's well worth the 100 mile drive if it's even slightly better than RealD 3D as it was awesome!
Im sure this is a stupid question but how does AVATAR in RealD 3D compair to IMAX? I have seen it in RealD and I know the theater is smaller than IMAX, but I wanted to know if it seems... Continue reading

nope not yet! Like Pasow it's my new Star Wars. ______________ Check out my blog at: http://technomaniac.comze.com/
Totally agree there I liked how the original SWG didn't really have levels just points. I hate grinding. Somehow they would have to make the world and the community inviting rather than sear MMO grinding game play. _____________ Check out my blog at: http://technomaniac.comze.com/
I agree with you both as with all MMOs it can be awesome (I also played early SWG) or it can suck so bad it feels like work. They would seriously need to makes sure the game focused on the community and fun rather than profits, and the money will come. If they did it the other way around both would be lacking.
I really hope that with all the profits of AVATAR they release more content about Pandora and the other tribes etc. I think the massive amount of content and depth of movies like Star Wars is what made it have... Continue reading

To me it seemed like it created a sort of anti gravity of which negated the downward pull of the planet in that specific area. Ever seen those magnetic tops that spin about 3 inches over a magnetic plane or superconductivity? Not that big of a stretch of the imagination. Here is a link to a good video on the power of superconductivity: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-xw_fmB2KA The posters comments of the video are interesting as well : "This is a LIVE frog. An object does not need to be superconducting to levitate. Normal things, even humans, can do it as well, if placed in a strong magnetic field. Although the majority of ordinary materials, such as wood or plastic, seem to be non-magnetic, they, too, expel a very small portion (0.00001) of an applied magnetic field, i.e. exhibit very weak diamagnetism. The molecular magnetism is very weak (millions times weaker than ferromagnetism) and usually remains unnoticed in everyday life, thereby producing the wrong impression that materials around us are mainly nonmagnetic. But they are all magnetic. It is just that magnetic fields required to levitate all these "nonmagnetic" materials have to be approximately 100 times larger than for the case of, say, superconductors. This experiment was conducted at the Nijmegen High Field Magnet Laboratory." Apparently humans have run out of fossil fuels and are looking for a very potent fuel which unobtanium must be if it's worth all the trouble.

Wow! It doesn't even feel like most of the movie was CG the story, cinematography, and facial animations were superb! Even when the humans where in the CG world it still looked good, that's when most movies with a lot of CG really lack. Loved the story. Loved how it was fun yet it was serious, not a lot of stupid catch phrases and jokes, profanity, nudity, or sexual innuendoes, which most directors think you must have one or more of these elements in every movie, action or not. It's almost like the director of this movie is saying to... Continue reading
