A couple of things in the Computers and HTPC Area description on the main page:
If you didn't have a computer, you would not be here...
This is nitpicking, and quite possibly offends my personal style alone, since I can't find a reference to it in any of my grammar books. I personally would use either didn't...wouldn't or did not...would not, rather than using a contraction in one instance but not the other. Jack, I'm sure, will correct me if I'm wrong. :)
As PCs become more and more powerful, their capability also grows, one the side benefits...
I would change the comma after grows to a semicolon, and add of: one of the side benefits...
Also, this part of the Video Game Hardware description has always bugged me:
Here is where you can talk about the latest in video game hardware/systems from PlayStation2, X-Box, Nintendo, Sega, etc.
PlayStation 2 and X-Box aren't the companies making the systems (like Nintendo and Sega are); they're the systems themselves. It should therefore be systems from Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, Sega, etc.
On second thought, put Sega first. :D
Still on the prowl...
