    Photo Printing (and editing)

    I'm looking to make some prints for a gift and trying decide on which medium to use. I will be arranging the photos in a 3 x 3 grid on the wall with each photo around the 12" wide range. It's between canvas prints (stretched over a frame) or normal(?) prints framed behind glass; I am open to...

    Looks like they've changed the rules on the radio restrictions to allow technical information like brake balance and battery management. I'm really looking forward to see what Red Bulls can pull off here. Maybe we'll finally see Vettel back on that top step. Also, I'm surprised he just...

    Previous/Next buttons not working in games?

    My previous/next buttons for music that are on my keyboard (and mouse as well) only seem to work when I'm on the desktop and not in a full screen application. They were working before and suddenly stopped working while I'm in a game. Any ideas? Thanks

    Garage Door Openers (parents got robbed)
