You have to write or request a script be made for certain sites if we don't have them yet.

I agree. We are in a recession over here and prices for goods keep going up and up. What do these corporations expect? It doesn't make any sense. If ANYTHING prices should be going down!

Still we see broken media delivery systems. Netflix continues to lose content and is hindered by the other companies. Prices go up for less service.
In grocery stores, food prices begin to rise as the product sizes continue to decrease very subtly. Look at the container sizes, you will occasionally see a few ounces get shaved off the containers.
New video games were never more than $50 just a handful of years ago. Not only are all the new games $60, but we see insane price increases on accessories. 60 bucks for an extra PS3 controller?? Do you know how much money Nintendo makes from people who just want 4 fully functional controllers for the Wii? It costs you hundreds for any decent gaming experience on a modern console.

:end rant:

I'm waiting for LGA2011 to come out.

I'm still running on my QX6700 on 975X chipset (LGA 775) with maxed out chipset at 8 gigs DDR2 ram. I ended up skipping over the Core i7 and LGA 1366 series all together. I was still happy with my quad core on the 975X at the time when the i7 came out. Now that I'm finally almost ready for an upgrade, with LGA2011 around the corner, I don't see any reason to not wait.

Anyone still need invites? I signed up and have some now.

I've been using Windows/MSN Messenger for years for video chat. It's too bad not more people have it, but video chat is not a big deal to me. Nothing revolutionary there.

If you're trying to watch a downloaded movie onto a DVD, you have to burn it as a DVD video. It's not as simple as just putting the .avi file, etc onto the disc.

You need to lookup how to burn a movie file to a DVD playable in a DVD player, then use the Xbox as a DVD player. Mind you, the Xbox does need the DVD remote kit in order to play a DVD. The kit comes with an IR receiver that goes into one of the controller ports and you use the remote to control it.

edit: I just realized you're using an Xbox 360, which has a lot more versatility. But what I do recommend is, you setup a home network and share the media files, then you will be able to play them directly across your network so you don't have to burn them to a DVD.

I'd like to see a Philly vs. Sox world series.

Unfortunately I have to admit, the Phillies have a better bullpen. Lee and Halladay are the two best in the game. Lester and Beckett are probably our two best, but IMO they play at a notch below. Let's hope the offense and other factors can make the difference up though.

The red sox have been in a very little slump again, the Yankees are still a contender. You never know about AL East, it is the most unpredictable division in MLB.

I'll be living a couple miles from that statue starting next month. Heading down to Arlington, VA just outside of D.C. :)

Oh I agree the speeds might be better with flash rather than traditional hard drives. But even so, the access times will be better but the sustained data rates will not even be as good.

Either way, RAM is still magnitudes faster. If you have a lot of RAM you don't need ReadyBoost. I haven't heard of that bandwidth trick but that might only help on Windows XP?

You should really do a speedtest and see if you're getting your advertised internet speeds. If not, then try tweaking it. Most likely the internet connection speed will be limited by the service itself.

Ready Boost is actually pretty bad. Microsoft has been disabling it by default in the latest patches due to security flaws. Also, RAM is magnitudes faster than flash memory used in USB sticks. While the access times are shorter than regular mechanical hard drives, the sustained transfer rates are no comparison.

DDR2 RAM has transfer rates of 6400 MB/sec or even higher. DDR3 can achieve over 10,000 MB/sec. USB flash, memory sticks, SD cards, etc memory typically gets about 6 MB/sec (more or less depending on quality).

Most solid state NAND flash drives get upwards of 200-300 MB/sec and with the latest SATA III generation about 500-600 MB/sec. As you can see these still don't get anywhere near RAM.

On your second point, I do know what gpedit.msc is, but I don't know exactly what tweak you're speaking of.

I've been watching some hilarious Vancouver riot videos. Those people are nuts and the Vancouver police probably suck.

The boston police were all prepared after previous incidents (riots due to winning). The problem with bostonians though is that they riot when they win, but not nearly as bad as what those canucks did. I have yet to see boston riots from a loss, strangely.
