    Arethose pins corroded?

    I want to see if you guys think if the two darker pins on the bottom are corroded. Is it an issue? I just wanted to clarify that what I am talking about is the socket or plug that is in the middle of the picture. The one that is to the left of "nabir" writing. The fourth and fifth pins to the...

    Computer refuses to boot

    For some reason my desktop is refusing to boot. When I turn the power on, the fans and all that other stuff starts to move but there is no boot sequence or and beeping noises. It doesn't even show the Asus boot image thing that you usually get. In fact, you don't get any display at all. PC...

    Autoblog: The truth to where your tax dollars actually went

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvwTMZNWGuk&feature=player_embedded First of all, I hated the song when it first came out. People say that when you buy a Prius, you are also buying into the whole "smug factor" as well. With this, I think Chevy have just taken it to a whole new level. Instead of...

    A problem with my new router

    I just went out and bought a Linksys WRT160N and I'm already having issues setting it up. Whenever I try to connect a device (laptop, iPod), none of the devices can connect to the network. I tried switching between WPA2 and no security whatsoever, and it still cannot connect the Wifi network...

    Sugestions for a new router

    My POS Dlink WBR 2310 has acted up after only a little over a year's usage, and I need a new router. I prefer to get one that is under $100 and around $60 maybe. I need something reliable and a strong signal and preferably not a Dlink.

    Problems with my router

    I currently use a D-Link WBR-2310, and the issue is that for some reason, when you are connected to the network, you cannot go on the internet. The only way to go on the internet is to go into the router management page (192.168.0.1) and then perform a factory reset. After that, the internet can...

    Fifth Gear on Discovery Canada

    It appears that on June 7 (today), they are starting to air Fifth Gear. The thing that I found interesting was that they had cut the show from an hour (with commercials) down to 30 minutes (with commercials). This means that a lot of the useless crap is cut out, but it also means that some of...

    Calling to all PSP Slim owners

    I'm now totally tired of carrying around and playing UMD games, so I decided to mod my PSP Slim to play homebrew games. To people who have hacked their PSP Slims to use the custom m33 firmware, do I need the Pandora battery permanently to use the custom firmware or can I just use the Pandora...

    What would Frank Bullitt Drive today??

    I was just scouring around TTAC the other day when I found a similar comment. The question is, what would Frank Bullitt drive today? In my mind, it would have to be fast (obviously), preferably American, V8, loud, and be painted in the same color as the original. The new Bullitt Mustang would be...
