    The RWD extremist thread

    I mean, there are at least a few of us left on here, right? Those of us who, for all sorts of reasons real and imagined, have issues, justified or not, with all drivetrains other than good old RWD and would never drive anything else by choice?

    The General Flight Sim Thread

    ...alternatively titled: The Aviation Thread [Entertainment Edition] :P Anyway, I may be going out on a limb here, but I know there are at least a few other flight simmers here, but since there are so many different sims out there and seemingly only a few of us, we may all be flying different...

    Installing things in a new PC, how hard can it be?

    So I have a new PC that I just bult (well, just got working, but that's another story...) And I'm about to start installing all my stuff on it, when a tempting but possibly hugely idiotic thought occurred to me. What if I just took the hard drives out of my old PC, with OS and everything still...

    The Cape (TV)

    Anyone else planning on watching the pilot for this tomorro? After watching a whole bunch of the trailers it looks awesome enough to deserve a thread methinks. At first, I was skeptical of another superhero show on NBC, but this one looks pretty fun and badass. And, unlike that other superhero...

    My PC is starting to have trouble, well, starting

    So I go to turn on my computer the other day. I press the power button, and I hear the fans spin up as normal... but that's as far as it got. No starting beep, no lights came on in the front of the tower, the computer just sat there with the fans running and no other activity. From the noise...

    Red Orchestra: Heroes of Stalingrad

    If you played Red Orchestra: Ostfront, or the UT mod that came before it, then you know what this game is all about. If you haven't, then this quote from this interview sums it up nicely I think: Trailer (Gametrailers, can't embed) Official Site I can't wait, especially after reading about...

    Right, this started with a tired and barely intelligible post I made in the science thread. I didn't want to start another thread then because I assumed there would be about zero interest. Well, turned out there was a bit, so here we go. I'm still not so sure about this, but I figure it can't...

    Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann: "A third model would fit Lamborghini very well"

    Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann: "A third model would fit Lamborghini very well" Might be a bit to early to be getting excited, since this doesn't seem to be much more than speculation, but still... More: errm...

    Medal of Honor

    Anyone else following the new MoH? I am definitely glad to see this series getting a reboot. Even if it does seem they are jumping on CoD's modern/special forces bandwagon, I'll be fine with that if it's good. I mean, they can't really stay in WWII forever...

    Dream Garage - Your Favorites of the Past 100 Years Edition

    yep... as if we didn't have enough of these already :P but I searched, and I don't think we have done one like this yet. the other threads constraints are based on the number or type of vehicle in your garage, or countries, etc... I thought i'd do one based on the different eras through which...

    Old Games

    So I had the thought to start a thread about old games (I searched, so don't hurt me if there already is one D: ) because right now i'm kicking myself for never picking up copies of the No One Lives Forever games when they were in the bargain bin. I had a good chance to pick them up for cheap...

    Charlie Wilson Dies R.I.P. :( I might not agree with everything he did, but he was a hell of a guy. If you haven't seen the movie about what he did, you should. Its excellent, and as far as I can tell, doesn't even...

    BMW E24 M6 vs Porsche 928

    Besides my thoughts that I actually posted in that thread, the "Cool cars you should actually be able to buy" topic also got me thinking about these two: VS so which one?

    How long can you reasonably expect a hard drive to last?

    So yeah, both my hard drives in my PC are quickly headed towards the pile of old dead computer hardware in my room that I haven't bothered to get rid of yet. These ones lasted about four years. I already got some new drives to replace them and backed up all my stuff, so it wasnt that bad... this...
