    Happy Birthday Perris!

    The forums say that you are turning a 109 years old, although I sincerely doubt that I do wish you a happy birthday!

    Windows 7 doesn't see my IBM Model M PS/2 keyboard

    I can honestly say that I have fallen in love with Apple's keyboards. They have the same travel distance as a laptop keyboard (even have the same construction) but it feels solid, there is a real buckle to them. Whereas the Microsoft keyboard I am using temporarily annoys the hell out of me...

    HP Touchpad Quiet Headphone Volume

    I've noticed this issue as well ... made it impossible to watch videos on an airplane. I ended up using my headphones with a small amplifier in built-in (and noise cancelation).

    Media Player Suggestions?

    VLC works perfectly with subtitles ... in most cases if the subtitles are named the same as the video file with the srt extension it works perfectly. Also if you have videos that have multiple subtitle tracks (mpeg4 container, matroska container) it will allow you to easily select between...

    8 Core AMD FX Processor blows intel 980x clean away at half the price!

    The 8 core winning is not necessarily guaranteed, it depends on how easy the load is to distribute among those cores ... how easy is it to parallalize the code doing the actual work?
