    Fixed "Top" link has gone missing

    I just noticed yesterday that the "Top" link has gone missing from the forum. Also did I miss an upgrade? Noticed some things expanded that normally aren't.

    Fixed decreased spam report time

    I would like to see the amount of threads that can be reported as spam have a decrease in wait time. I got on this morning and saw like 5 or 6 spam threads and couldn't report them all as you have to wait far to long before you can report the 2nd (ect.) after the 1st. I usually have to go or...

    Windows users are confused - did Mojave help?

    I just found this funny clip and I can't help but laugh at how confused Windows users have become about Windows. I don't think Microsoft did themselves any good by further confusing customers telling them they were running *yet* another version of Windows instead of Vista. KDE 4 or Windows 7? :)

    I got laid off from work yesterday, so if I seem overly grumpy or whatnot it's just that (and not that I hate you). :) Anyhoo I guess that's it since you guys are like my 2nd family. :p

    Is anyone here going to be playing Vanguard when it goes live January 30th? I'm currently in open beta (due to pre-order) and the game looks rather interesting from a EQ2 players perspective. They have a ton of work to due by the end of the month but this game should be good stuff when it's a...

    DMB (Stand Up) Album

    I was just wondering how many Dave Matthews fans we have around here? I got the new CD (via iTunes) the other day and I'm really liking it. I was just wondering what other fans think? :)

    Tiger and cordless keyboard

    So I noticed that since upgrading to Tiger upon boot up it prompts me telling me it doesn't know what kind of keyboard. I have to push the letter beside both shift keys and then all is good. It just seems odd this is happening as this keyboard never had such an issue with Panther. Not a huge...

    FireWire HD

    Out of geekdom and the fact that my mini only has a 4200rpm HD I picked myself up a LaCie d2 Extreme. Anyhoo I was just wondering if any here has done a drive clone using Carbon Copy? If so did you have to shutdown everything while it does it's thing (for ever :(), or were you able to surf and...

    iLife Pre-installed

    When I got my Mac mini iLife '05 was pre-installed on it and all is well. Anyhoo I'm getting Tiger and it got me thinking about how do I install iLife in Tiger? I looked and I didn't get iLife on a seperate disc. Is it part of the "bundled software" thats on my OSX install disc? Also why did I...

    I havn't gotten my mini yet (still awaiting it) but just found a bunch of posts stating a problem some people are having with the VGA output of the mini (here and here). I guess the the signal strength is low (below VESA specs) and some are getting darker then normal display. Does anyone with a...

    This is a great linux distro/recovery cd. Thanks to this little gem I was able to transfer all my data [mbr] and all to a new HD from my dieing one. It includes most all troubleshooting/recovery apps you could think of. I ended up using "dd_rescue" to transfer my files from dead HD to my new HD...

    The US Election Mess

    Yep seems little has changed in states like Florida. :( Anyhoo here are two good sites I found an interesting read over. I don't see how in 4 years this wasn't fixed after all the trouble we had in 2000. There should be a nation wide standard for a national election. If the states wanna do their...
