    Best 27 inch or under, TV for 600 or less

    My local CC has the C27V36 for $599 with a $50 giftcard tossed in, I'm probably gonna go ahead and pull the trigger on this for myself, just want to read up a bit more on it. Apparently some people are reporting a hum issue with it (more than the normal elctronic hum). I know someone with the...

    DVD Thinpak and other Slim Cases

    Shoot, I just stumbled across this thread last night, those Oz cases are just perfect for my needs. If there is another group buy in the future, I'll certainly place an order. The pakpal cases look alright, but I'll shell out a bit more for something I like.

    Salamander Fusion 36 Media Rack $99

    PS2 Headsets question

    It hasn't been done yet, but I bet as SOCOM 2 comes closer to release IGN Gear will probably do a head to head comparison.

    2-player co-op games on consoles?

    Another game coming out that is supposed to support 2 player coop is Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel. It uses teh Baldur's Gate 2 engine and is a post-apocolyptic sci-fi setting instead of fantasy.

    Black Threaded Rod

    There are some black marking dyes for aluminum and brass. Check http://www.smallparts.com/ under marking chemicals in the product section. Never used myself, just remember seeing them. I've been meaning to get a bottle of the brass black and give it a try on a stripped trumpet, just keep...

    What fighting game are you most looking forward to playing?

    Played the Xbox version of Soul Caliber II at Lollapalooza yesterday. It is an absolute thing of beauty and is now my mopst eagerly awaited game of the summer. I hope I'm finished with KOTOR when this does come out, as I won't be playing much of anything else for a while.

    The not so Flexy Rack. (My DIY High End Rack)

    Yea, i'm familiar with both Bosch and 8020, as well as a few other manufacturers. The actual Spider extrusion, I still have yet to see anywhere. With your project, how are you planning to mount the arms to the extrusion?

    The not so Flexy Rack. (My DIY High End Rack)

    Anyone have a source for the pillars that are used in the spider rack? While I'm probably going to get T-slot extrusions from Bosch for my the rack project I'm working on, those are kinda neat looking and I could see using them in a different project. www.onlinemetals.com seems to have good...

    Removing stickers from jewel cases?

    Lamp oil works wonderfully (trupmpet valve oil too, what I use at work for getting adhesive off of stuff). But, when it comes down to it, the time spent working on it far exceeds the replacement cost of the case. Replacing or ignoring are my two favorite options.

    Wolfenstein Tournament. What do you guys think?

    Yep, there was major ownage last night of team facepasternamestealer. If last night was any indication, they're gonna need a big 'ol box of tissue for the true face pasting they'll be drowning in when WDUGM gets done with them. We'll leave the gibletty reamains for Men With Hats to munch on.

    *** Official THE MATRIX RELOADED Discussion Thread

    For whomever asked about the hex code from the matrix website, poke there's an area where a little console with switches comes up and you can entere a code, you need to convert the hex to binary and enter it in (there's a hex/binary converter too, somewhere in there). You'll get an option to...

    *** Official THE MATRIX RELOADED Discussion Thread

    Agent Smith taking over Bain reminded me alot of the Neal Stephenson book Snowcrash. In this book, someone has discovered a way to essentially take control of a person's mind by hacking the brain stem on a subconscious level through the use of a virus like code. In the book it only affects those...

    *** Official THE MATRIX RELOADED Discussion Thread

    Just finished Enter the Matrix. I really hope these cut scenes make it onto one of the DVDs, as there are alot of neat little things. I see someone posted about the earlier clips. Here's a bit from the most interesting of the later clips, IMO. FMV 16 Niobe escaping from the power plant and it...

    *** Official THE MATRIX RELOADED Discussion Thread

    It was 23, a number usually associated with chaos in magic and other such things. Trying to figure out why they chose that one. I suppose, Zion could represent a controlled chaos within the matrix if you are going with the multiple matrices idea. I completely agree that the choice of numbers...

    *** Official THE MATRIX RELOADED Discussion Thread

    My friends and I have been kicking around all sorts of stuff about Reloaded since Wednesday night. Over a few too many brews last night we started wondering, what if the world of Zion and the machines was the true reality and Neo is even more of an abberation than the other Ones. More to the...
