    Looking for the Wii? (Update 2/11/07 - Circuit City/Target)

    I'm surprised you were able to get one at Target. Most Targets around the country do have them in stock right now but they are all also under orders to not sell any until Sunday (Feb. 11). So, Sunday morning at Target is the place to be if you are still looking for a Wii.

    SNL 1-15-2005 Topher Grace

    I only saw a couple of skits and the one thing I noticed was that several of the actors where obviously reading off of cue cards. When they were supposed to be looking at another character, there eyes where looking somewhere off camera.

    Disney to support Blu-ray

    With the battle between DVD-R and DVD+R, instead of one format winning out over the other, nearly all DVD burners now support both formats. I think something similar will happen with Blu-Ray and HD-DVD. Supporting both formats in the same box will probably only inflate the price for two or three...

    Anybody work for the Post Office

    I once had a package sent to me from England where the sender put the correct street address and city but got the state and zip code wrong. I still got the package. It took about 3 or 4 months to arrive but I did get it. I also recently had a letter sent to me with all the correct address...

    ALIAS season 4 ongoing thread (merged)

    The shorter seasons may also be due to increased production costs and time. I remember hearing that each episode of 24 takes twice as long to make as a traditional hour long episode. Unless they start filming year round (which won't happen), they won't have a choice but to shorten the seasons.

    Formula 1 2004

    Ironic, since McLaren can barely make their current engines last through a single weekend. For me, F1 is just as much about the technical achievments of the teams as much as the driver competition. Limiting the teams ability to develop unique cars is a huge turnoff. I'll give it a chance...

    HTF SURVEY: What else would you like to see done with DVD?

    I don't know if this has been suggested already but I would like to see it more common to have the CD soundtrack bundled with the DVD. I've only seen this done with some of the larger boxed sets.

    Got a problem with a 15 year old hacker...help guys!

    My guess is that he has some sort of network sniffer set up. If all the computers go through a hub, the sniffer can be installed on any computer on the network because the hub sends all network traffic to all the computers. If the hub is replaced with a switch, then network is routed only to the...

    MTV music awards video quality...

    Not only was the video bad but so was the audio. I couldn't even hear half the people at the microphone.

    What is a good paid web host for my domain?

    The host I use is the same host that this forum uses: www.qwk.net. They do a really good job.

    How does one fix and replace damaged drivers in WinXP?

    If you know which patch might have caused the problem, you can try uninstalling it from the add/remove programs. All the Windows patches are listed at the bottom of the programs list. If it isn't listed or won't uninstall, then I agree with using the system restore feature.
