    help on finding a video library programme

    I need a programme that has tag support and thumbnailed file library, so that I can arrange my collection of racing videos and movies according to various different tags. Kind of like Windows Media Centre, except I need to sort the files according to multiple tags. I hope I'm making sense...

    How to start an online shopping site

    So I've been thinking about starting an online shopping site for the local South African market. It's relatively a new industry for the local market, since most potential customers still prefer the traditional method of buying the goods from a reputable store/shop. Having said that, I'm...

    Fucked over from Political Science

    okay, so this subject has really stumped me, since I know absolutely nothing about the american political system. I do take notes during class, and read the prescribed text book, but while I understood every word, it just doesn't make sense when put together in the actual context. So right now...

    How to syphon petrol from a car?

    Same as topic. I'm asking this question for my cousin, since he is living in Angola and dying to get some petrol for his generator (LOL, 3rd world country). Getting petrol from the garage pump is out of the question, since the staff at the garage are not allowed to sell petrol to anyone with a...

    weird internet problem after a clean format

    So after a clean format and re-install of Win 7 x64, I discovered an weird and annoying problem which I can't rectify. It seems like my computer has somehow blocked both of these sites, RU and this site. Both these sites won't load up with any of the popular web browsers that I tried (Opera, IE...

    FAO : MKV GTI Owners or Tyre Experts

    I'll let the picture do the talking first: Yeah, it happened while I was on the highway, doing about 90mph in the fast lane. :| I heard a loud flapping noise as the tyre disintegrates, that's when I realised that my front right tyre finally gave in. I took the closest off ramp that I could...

    Talk to me about headphones...

    So I'm in the market for a pair of high quality headphones, since my current set, Technics RP-F350, offers very little bass and too much treble :mad: My budget is around $150, and I'm not really picky about the brand, as long as its comfortable.

    ICH controller problem

    right... so my trusty P965-S board (third PC) has been acting funny for quite sometime now. It seems like the onboard ICH controller (ICH8R) is completely buggered up since I can't use my USB devices properly. Not only that, its starting to effect the HDDs as well, with random self shutdowns...

    SSD - Worth my money?

    Right, so I've been thinking about buying an SSD ever since non-JMicron drives became the mainstream of MLC drives. Problem is, the price is still too steep for my liking. It's about $150 for an OCZ Vertex 30gb, which is $50 more than a Seagate 7200.12 1Tb. And since I'm running out of hdd space...
