Re: EVH build

why did you get a ram block? those are really just a waste of your flow as ram is going to hit its limit on a set of copper heatsinks... Because I didn't realize it was a waterblock when I ordered it...it was late and I was tired. I'll give it a shot and if I'm not happy with it then I'll break out...

Re: EVH build

Re: CONNECTING TO THE SERVER FOR L4D

Has there been an sv_search_key added to the server yet so we can connect from the lobby? Also, it seems like the only time anyone is on the server is when someone deliberately uses the "connect 66.102.113.100:27015" command, other than that it's always empty and I hardly ever play on the server bec...

Re: OK, Now I'm confused

To put it bluntly, a single 9800gt will blow two 7800gt cards in sli clean out of the water and a gtx295 is also that much better than a 9800gt. If you're a hardcore FPS junkie or play really demanding games go with the gtx295 (might also look into the gtx260 for a better bang for the buck). Otherwi...

Re: 6yo boy dies at monster truck show

As far as lawsuits go..i dont think the family can sue, there's a clause on the back of the ticket or somewhere and it says if you get hurt walk it off. They can always have the media make some noise and get the company(s) to pay up. Actually, I can see them making a lawsuit stick because while the...

Sent out five of the prizes thus far (3 US and 2 Canada), so expect something in the next 6-10 days. My apologies on parcel shipping, but times are tight and with one more package to ship the shipping has already topped $50. Wish LR had a store so we could help support the site monetarily...*cough*...

Learned this from a professor that was a manager at Walmart According to Walmart's Policies, the only time that you're allowed to be stopped at the door is if an employee sees you pocket something and doesn't break line of sight with you until you leave the store. Other than that, they aren't suppos...

Wow, how could I miss something this cool? Can't wait till they are a bit more mainstream.

Europeans will just transfer funds to their American friends to buy the game then gift it to them, duh :P

I heard about this. Didn't you have to play like $50/month or something to be eligible for that special pricing? Yeah, for the aircard service.
