    Is the Plextor M5pro a good choice?

    Really thinking about purchasing a SSD. Running Lightroom 5 can bog down my Velociraptor quite a bit especially with a huge catalog. My research is pointing me to the Plextor M5pro Extreme. Decent performance combined with a 5 year warranty sounds pretty good to me. Anyone can share...

    Trackmania 2 Canyon

    Any one else playing this? It's been out for a while now. Just as good as the old one. It's still addictive. Controls are the same but handling is very different. It's all in the drift! :rockout: http://www.trackmania.com/?lang=nl It's a download only game.

    No upgrade for quite a while.

    Well, it seems that my Dragon Platform will have to endure a no upgrade policy for quite some time. I have made this decision because of a new purchase that is going to occupy part of my income for some time. :ohwell: I don't really mind in a way because my current system is still quite...

    No one talking about Creativity Suite 5 ?

    Adobe's new Creative suite CS5. I still have Photoshop Elements 5. Yes, it's a far cry from the latest offering. But there no way i would dish out this much money on a suite that i would not even use that much. That's the reason i got Corel's graphics suite 4. Btw, Corel has a new version...

    Diablo 2 1.13 (Constantly crashing online)

    Reset was tuesday along with the new patch 1.13. The game is totally unplayable due to servers constantly crashing. I'm playing on Europe realm. Other realms are also affected. I've posted on Blizzard's forum along with hundreds of other upset users. Anyone here in the same boat?

    Have any of you seen this bogus commercial on TV lately ? Come on... BSOD on a Macbook. LOL. How can these guys get away with crap like this. There's better free software out there that can "Clean up" a PC to run smoother. I would not even look at their website when i saw this ad. :laugh:
