    Transformers - Dark of the Moon

    Ok so there's no thread for this one so I'll start it up. Went to go watch the midnight showing in IMAX 3D so I've only got 3 hours of sleep so please forgive me if it's short. Overall I would say that I enjoyed it. Definitely better than #2. There's lots more robots and the special...

    Help ID these 2 80s house megamixes

    Hey everyone, hoping someone might be able to help ID these two "megamixes" I posted on youtube from an old cassette tape I had lying around. Pretty sure these are from a 12" megamix and not some DJ/guy in his basement. Probably similar to megamixes like "The Mixmaster - Grand Piano"...

    Fall's 2010 TV Shows

    I don't think anyone's started a thread or continued the conversation from last year about Fall's new shows so here goes. What's everyone watching this season? I'm giving The Event, No Ordinary Family and Boardwalk Empire a shot. Surprisingly, I find that there's very little that's peeked...

    Acer Revo 3610 vs current HTPC

    Hey everyone. I'm thinking of upgrading my existing HTPC so something a little more modern. I think it's probably showing its age and has a couple of little problems here and there but for the most part has been a great media server. The new server that I was thinking of purchasing was the...

    Clubs to hit in San Jose / San Francisco?

    So I'm going to be in San Jose for a week (Sun - Sat) and was wondering if there are any clubs I can hit on Thu/Fri night? Either San Jose or San Francisco would be alright since SF would only be about a 40 minute drive away from where we'll be staying at. Thanks everyone. Lobo

    Google DNS

    Google announced today the launch of their new "service" called Google Public DNS. Basically, you use Google's DNS instead of your ISPs with the theory that their servers are more capable of handling thousands upon thousands of simultaneous requests. Google introduces Google Public DNS...

    Nintendo DS or DSi for 7 year old?

    So I'm thinking of getting my kid one of these for his birthday next month but I wasn't sure which one to get. His two other cousins have the DS and I believe they are hacked so that they can get and play all the games for free. The new DSi seems to be neat with the built in cam and stuff but...

    I stuck it in the wrong hole

    Yeah yeah yeah it's not what you think but it's a video. Figured it belonged in it's own thread instead of the youtube one because a) it's funny and b) it's got Scott Baio! Couldn't find it by searching but timeline me just in case. Lobo P.S. Lyrics might not be SFW.

    New penalties for impaired drivers

    In line with the rest of the drinking and driving talk in the Officially Banned thread, surprised no one has mentioned the new law that went into effect on May 1st. Now if you are caught with a blood alcohol level between 0.05 - 0.08, you get an automatic 3 day suspension as opposed to the...

    Guys, need to find the thread that a link or the video itself of a black, hobo-looking like guy and this fat, black chick/hooker who are dancing to some funky music in front of some discoish lights. From dancing it turns into a full-on porno with both making lots of funny faces. Told my...

    Recommend a HDTV tuner card for Vista

    Hey gang. I've wanted to play with OTA HDTV and I figured I might as well try it on my Vista Media Center box as my TV doesn't have a built in ATSC tuner. Are there any (cheap) HDTV PCI/PCI-e cards I could grab to try playing around with? I'm curious to see if the video quality is as good as...
