  • Windows XP reg crack

    Published: Thursday, March 08, 2001 | By: Dennis

    Its been pretty slow on the hardware front lately, Only a handful of hardware stuff has been posted.
    Though I did see this over at 2cpu.com that someone has already cracked Microsoft's new registeration scheme that will be coming with the XP release of Windows and Office. (it's pretty simple too).

  • Zero Wing, Game of the week

    Published: Thursday, March 08, 2001 | By: Dennis

    I thought that I would post something fun, so here it goes.
    All your base are belong to us, and the game that started it. You can dowload the ROM and emulator at Classic gaming or from our own files section. I grabbed the Sega version ROM and a emulator that works on Windows systems. So download and enjoy.

    This isn't my software so please don't complain to me if it doesn't work

  • BattleBots

    Published: Wednesday, March 07, 2001 | By: Dennis

    This is a little off the subject but I've been watching this series on Comedy Centeral called BattleBots and have become quite intrigued with it.

    Maybe for my next "mod" I'll build a battlebot. I could use un-smoothed case edges as weapons, we all know how deadly they are.

  • Intel to push 400MHz DDR Memory

    Published: Monday, March 05, 2001 | By: Dennis

    Just when things where getting good, Intel has pushed to make it better. Intel Corp. is pushing the DRAM industry to develop a 400MHz DDR memory chip for the PC. This is not to replace the ill-fated Rambus solution for Intel processors but rather to give options to customers (something long overdue from the Intel) and the new 400MHz memory would match the 400MHz FSB of the new P4 processor.

    Looks like I'll be waiting for a bit to upgrade.

  • Doesn't look good for Apple

    Published: Sunday, March 04, 2001 | By: Dennis

    It looks like Apple is going to release an operating system in a similiar fashion as Microsoft ("buggy"). Many Mac users use their systems for Video production and even the new machines come with DVD-R's. But Mac OS X can't even read a DVD much less write one... Ouch.

  • ServerWorks at it again

    Published: Saturday, March 03, 2001 | By: Dennis

    I was checking out the news at 2cpu.com today and noticed this article. It talks about what ServerWorks has in store for the XEON line of Intel processors.
    The gist of the article is this. They will be producing a DDR chipset called the "Grand Champion HE". It will be capable of 6.4 GBytes/second of memory bandwidth, support 2-way and 4-way processor configurations, and will be the first to support the PCI-X bus. Pretty exciting but will most likely be too expensive for the "average" user.

  • Hercules Prophet III

    Published: Friday, March 02, 2001 | By: Dennis

    Gamespy has a few screenshots of the new GF3 from Hercules. The card is very similar to the GF2 Ultra. With the exception of the Hercules branded "Blue Orb" processor cooler. I can't wait to see how it performs.

  • Pathetic Webserver Pics

    Published: Thursday, March 01, 2001 | By: Dennis

    With the recent problem I had with my hosting provider moving their servers this weekend I decided to set up a temporary server to host this website from. I like to call it my "bare bones" approach to server setup.

    Here are a few photos One Two

    The computer is a Pentium 166 with 64 megs of RAM. 7gigs of HDD space 4 of which being part of a Software RAID 0. So far unless I get a major spike in web traffic it should hold up pretty well.

  • DNS problems with Ninjalane.com

    Published: Wednesday, February 28, 2001 | By: Dennis

    Well the company that was holding the Ninjalane web server is moving this weekend so there was a bit of a lag in getting the DNS changed over. Sorry if you tried to connect and couldn't get though. Tomorrow I'll post a photo of a real "bare bones system" and show you the current temporary web server.

  • Hercules to release GeForce3 in March

    Published: Wednesday, February 28, 2001 | By: Dennis

    Here is a press release from Hercules.com. 525.99 for a GF3. Not to shabby. I believe the GeForce2 Ultra sold for that much when it was released.
