    TechPowerUp Unveils its New Downloads Section

    I would like to expand the version info window. For some reason having a larger readable window helps. Maybe it's just the inability to do so that bothers me. Either way, good stuff. :)

    [FS] GPU - Monica 7870/7950 3GB

    Good cards. I am pleased with the one I've received. CCC did give me some problems at first, but I've worked through them. The driver base on this PC is pretty old. Cleared everything off and started fresh.

    Giada Launches Compact i200 Mini-PC

    I'm not sure why I was confused, of course thin clients. These seem powerful enough to use for office workstations and we're still deploying slim towers. The price on these are actually a bit cheaper, might have to pick one up to test with.

    VESA mount? As in mounting it to the back of a monitor?

    [FS] GPU - Monica 7870/7950 3GB

    I'm interested. It's about time to upgrade from my 5870. Looks like this one if the GPU-z screenshot is good. http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/124572/ati-hd7950-3072-120706.html

    OUYA: A Hacker-Friendly Android Console

    It'll be an interesting step, but is it really competition against the big budget console games or just a market segment hitting all points of access? I don't see this scaring away Microsoft, Sony, or Nintendo. They're very different kinds of games.:toast:

    Ar. Plenty o diamonds in the swamp. Gonna have to construct some railway over there for easy access.

    Maybe it's a biome issue. I'm out in the hills, doesn't seem to be any within a thousand blocks or so. I'll go try over in the swamp later tonight. I generally dig around the bottom looking for diamond, a block above where the weird light level starts.

    Well, there's no diamonds on this map as far as I can tell. The ore distribution must have been modified when the map was made for SMP. Does someone have a link to the author or where the map came from? It might be specific about that.

    I've been digging and all that I'm finding are huge deposits of coal. Does this map have a non-standard materials spread or something? I should have SOME iron by now, but nada. edit: Seems it might be deeper than normal. Meh

    TPU Minecraft Server

    I didn't see nearly as much stuff up on the mountains or deeper in the forests, but out in the open stuff spawns like crazy. The building on the NW corner of the forest (which sustained a bit of creeper damage, sorry) had no less than 30 mobs swarming through it. Couldn't have been on a plot of...

    Bethesda Softworks Announces The Elder Scrolls Online

    I did mention the Atronachs looked recognizable, I also noticed the Daedric writing on their wrists and ankles after I went back over them again. GI hasn't reproduced the rest of the shots from the leak, so I'm just gonna keep my hopes up for a little while longer that maybe it's the only legit...

    Bethesda Softworks Announces The Elder Scrolls Online

    These screenshots are fake. Most likely they're from the upcoming Neverwinter MMO. The Drider and Bulette tipped me off. Then going back through looking over them, every SS is lacking any sort of identifying markings that are common to Tamriel. No familiar landmarks, no insignias, just generic...

    Ah I wasn't impressed with it. Even a little connection lag means I'm pulling arrows out of my ass, and the packs of spiders murdered me a couple times in spawn before I punched em all to death. Challenge maps just work better on a local system, imo.

    Bethesda Softworks Announces The Elder Scrolls Online

    This will undoubtedly be based on the Gamebryo engine. Same engine that powered Fallout 3, Skyrim, Warhammer Online, and Rift, along with a couple dozen other games. Also, they're using the full world map. Kind of makes you wonder about the partially rendered world outside of Skyrim that you...

    Game Hacks and Cracks: In-Game Ads Next

    If they make a quality game that millions of people buy, they won't need ads to support them. In fact, they DID make a quality game that millions of people have bought, then went back and shoved some ads in there to take advantage of the huge playerbase. There's no cost savings here, it wasn't...

    New Sandia CPU Cooler Design Offers Fundamental Breakthrough in Heat Transfer

    Pulled from the PDF... One important point about the air bearing is that the ~0.03 mm air gap is not maintained by using extremely tight mechanical tolerances. Much like an air hockey puck on an air hockey table, or a hard disk read/write head, the air gap distance is self-regulating. If...

    New menu icon works great. Menu actually opens and closes properly without any delay either. :D Yeah, I know 4.6 is old. It's a work phone and they refuse to update the BES to a newer version as it'd cull out a bunch of the even older phones in the environment. I thought it would be one of...

    Appears to be mostly functional on Blackberry v4.6 The menu button could afford to be moved over to the right more as the BB one is pretty big and overlaps the logo a bit. Also, once the menu opens, clicking the X doesn't really do anything, which means you have to reload the page to get rid...
