I got the impression that there was some kind of snobbery going on. one of the guys got all sniffy when the other referred to something on the web - he said something about http being better.. Maybe I just mis-interpreted the whole thing :roll: Well there's no accounting for folk and their seemingl...

HTTP and IRC are two of the TCP/IP suite of Internet Protocols - HTTP is used to transmit webpages across the network (or web), whereas IRC is a different protocol, which is designed to enable internet chat communications. The differences between the protocols (and there's a number of them) is in wh...

I've spent half an hour on hold to GAME customer services today before giving up before my mobile credit runs out. I bought a pre-owned PS2 a week last Saturday and returned it a few days later as the laser didn't work. The deputy manager laughed at me and told me I have an attitude problem, just c...

I think XP will run dual core and quad core processors without any problems. ***Edit*** After making such a bold claim, I thought I'd better check. I still think XP will support both, as although Home is limited to 1 CPU, and XP to 2, Microsoft's definition is based on the number of CPU sockets on t...

Because I wrote it, and therefore it holds no suprises for me! :D
Is it four pages of the word "Boooooooooo!" repeated? :D

Seag Saturn has never done anything for me.
I agree with you there - unless you're really into your 2D beat 'em ups or shoot 'em ups (and it does these very well) it doesn't really cater to other gaming "tastes".

You could always go in the #retrogamer chatroom on Quakenet if you want something of that fashion. There are still a few of us in there, but it continues to have the problem of people joining, getting disheartened because they don't get an immediate response and leaving 3 minutes later. You need pe...

Re: Will the XBOX 360 still be around in 10 years?

I have a load of consoles and the only 1 that constantly gives me problems (that is not current gen) is the dreamcast. Not too many problems tbh, the biggest issue was having to solder a new resistor onto the joypad circuitboard inside the console, the original had burned out. I feel comfortable kn...

I'm currently using an Asus P5K Deluxe which is a brilliant and feature packed board. I was thinking of using that to upgrade my computer. I have to save up a lot first though because I'm still using a socket 939 X2, so it means that I have to get the motherboard, CPU, cooler and RAM all in one hit...

I have the Quad Core Q6600, and it's very impressive. plus, it overclocks very nicely indeed. The 8500 is rubbish, though. 2 tips: 1) Dump the stock Intel heat sink and fan, and get something else. I have a Noctua hs/fan combo. Be careful, though, some heatsinks are so big, they may not fit in your ...
