    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!! :eek: 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...

    Any Advice For A Budding Graphic Designer?

    wow, all this information sounds really facinating! Actually, it's kinda getting me excited! If it were financially feasible, I'd be drawing for a living, but that's not what I want to do. Drawing for me is no problem! :) I really appreciate all the input guys, it's giving me an...

    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...

    No graphic designers here eh? I guess home theater and graphics don't mesh well... except for me that is :)

    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...

    Top Ten PSone games ever...

    Maybe not the best games out there... but really enjoyed Kagero: Deception 2. I know it's sick and twisted at times, but it was kind of humorous seeing knights struggle to come after you after having a huge boulder smash him on the head. Not of of the PS' strongest games, but I had fun with...

    Removing dust from BEHIND screen shield? (Tosh 57H82)

    Already tried doing a search to no avail so I gotta ask it in the open... I have the Toshiba 57H82, and there seems to be "finger print" like smudges from behind the screen shield. I've had a hard time looking any info up here, or on the web for safely removing my TV's screen shield. Can...

    NBA League Passed Canceled?

    I have been getting NBA League Pass through my local cable company, Adelphia :thumbsdown: , for about a month now and I was just told through a representative that they are going to cancel it for subscribers in my area. I found out about this because I had an HD Box installed today, and it...

    Can HD Set Top Box be used with Cable HDTV?

    Adelphia is claiming that in the next few months or so, they will be adding HD services soon. They plan to lease their boxes for about $17, but I was wondering if I could just use my current set-top box instead. I have the Pansonic TU-DST51. The input options are Antenna, Cable STD, Cable...

    Toshiba popped, now the images are tinted blue

    As for the dust issue, I just got my set 4 days ago. It was brand new, so I can't see dust as being the culprit. Could I be wrong?

    Toshiba popped, now the images are tinted blue

    Oh my god... I read this thread the other day, and of course, I had to jinx myself by saying it would never happen to my Tosh. As I was playing X-Box, there was that loud pop, but fortunatly everything returned back to "normal." Jeff and Steve, please keep us posted on what happens to your...

    My Dilemma: 50" or 57"

    I am about to buy either the Toshiba 50H82, or the 57H82 this weekend, but I can't seem to decide which set I want. I sit about 9.5" away from my set, and I don't plan to move to a larger room for quite some time, so that's where it's going to be pretty much. Now, price isn't much of a...
