    Suggestions for comfortable/durable school backpack

    I really like Dakine backpacks. I have owned Jansport, Eastpak, and the like, but Dakine has ergonomic (?) style straps that feel really good. They also have an assortment of low-profile paks that still hold a lot yet don't stick out 3 feet from your back. Most importantly, they are very rugged...

    DOOM III: Gold news & Half Life 2 min req.

    Yes Tim, I checked my system's virtual memory, and it was more than needed according to various resources. I appreciate that tip however. After talking to Activision, I have been advised to update my drivers for my Video card, Sound Card, MOBO Driver, and still have no luck. Geesh, this is...

    DOOM III: Gold news & Half Life 2 min req.

    Well guys, I'm still not having any luck. I'm not over clocking. I've installed the new ATI beta Catalyst driver, the new DirectX from Microsoft, and even tried reinstalling. I've scoured other Doom forums, but I have no findings. I am utterly baffled by what is going on. It suck that I pait...

    DOOM III: Gold news & Half Life 2 min req.

    Can anybody provide a little help for me? Man, I just bought my copy yesterday, and I tried installing it late last night, but I've been running into a particular problem. Basically, after installing the game is where I run into the issue. When I start up the game, the splash screen starts...

    how do you go about cleaning the face of your equipment?

    I'm surprised that nobody uses those small compressed air cans to blow the dust out of the little nooks and crannys. Blowing the air inside all the cracks is great because you don't really have to worry about scratching and faceplates or bezels. I find the Air, and wipe combination works...

    Feedback on Bedroom Speaker Placement (Pics)

    I'm sorry, it is the JBL N26 bookshelf. It would be mounted about 3 feet above my head.

    Feedback on Bedroom Speaker Placement (Pics)

    Here's my bedroom, it's about 14' x 10.5': Okay, so do you see that Red X? That's where I'd like to mount my right surround speaker. My question is whether this type of placement will cause any ill listening effects, even after calibration. Am I better off using a more traditional layout...

    A thermometer and a scale will tell you which is the best receiver.

    If you think the guys at CC/BB/etc are bad, I ran into a similar situation at the recent 2004 CES Show!! I was in the high-end audio "Village," and stopped by the Polk audio room. As the guy was demoing out the speakers to some Pink Floyd, I was just browsing at the components he was using...

    Any Advice For A Budding Graphic Designer?

    Thanks Pamela and Wally. I really do love the design field, and I can't wait to find the right one for me. Deadlines and Photoshop are my friends really, they don't scare me at all. Pamela, I also heard from some people in the field that printmaking jobs are quite useful, maybe I'll look...

    Any Advice For A Budding Graphic Designer?

    Hey guys, I am going to graduate soon from Cal State Long Beach in Califonia. I've been looking around and asking some of my professors for some advise, but I've mainly been hearing to check print magazines like Communication Arts, or CMYK. Any fellow graphic designers have some invaluable...
