Star Trek Online posts the latest Engineering Report {Massively}

Apr 16th 2011 3:15AM Actually even for those of us who dropped the extra cash for the collectors edition with the lifetime subscription, it can be hard to find reasons to play.

iPad 2 video mirroring to Mac, the cheap and dirty way {TUAW.com}

Mar 26th 2011 12:57AM Another solution: Apple's HDMI adapter, and a Blackmagic Design Intensity card. You pay a bit more ($39 for the HDMI adapter, and $199 for the Intensity Pro or Shuttle), but you get pixel perfect results.

12 Days of Joyswag: Halo: Reach hair clippers, briefcase, book ... oh, and game {Joystiq}

Dec 22nd 2010 10:59AM Dragging TVs, Xboxes, ethernet switches, and 400ft of cable to a friend's house to play Halo on XBConnect and later XLink Kai in what would become a weekly ritual. Beware the sniper in the closet. (We had one guy who would take a 12" tv into the closet with him, and do nothing but snipe the entire game.)

Kinect for Xbox 360 now listed for $150... at Microsoft's own online store {Engadget}

Jun 22nd 2010 12:28AM The "WiFi extension cable" is because the Kinect plugs in where the wifi module did on the original model 360. I'm not sure if the extension cable brings a usb port back to the 360 from the Kinect, or what exactly.

Feb 9th 2009 2:10PM Thing about the recovery is that it will wipe your disk, and looks like a rather nasty hackjob.
I mounted the recovery image, and the rootfs + bootfs inside of it, put the contents from them on a new partition (created with gparted)
Next i created a new script in the initrd (hint: its a gzipped cpio newc archive) that mounts the partition i specified instead of the funky disk scanning they do (which doesn't work in anything other than their default setup)
then copy the lines from the mie boot/grub/menu.lst to your existing /boot/grub/menu.lst so you can boot it.

Honestly I don't like the UI, its pretty, but is better suited for touchscreens / pen displays
I prefer running xterm fullscreen with ratpoison.

Countdown to Wrath giveaway: Day 2 - Razer DeathAdder mouse {WoW}

Nov 11th 2008 11:43PM So its a mouse, who still uses those?
I've been using trackballs for two decades, and got my bestfriend to switch a decade ago. Never having to pickup the mouse and relocate it = Priceless. I guess I could always sell it to one of my guild mates to afford WoTLK :/

Countdown to Wrath Giveaway: Day 4 - 60-day game time card {WoW}

Nov 10th 2008 7:09AM So I got my best friend of 12 years addicted, and we've been playing under the awesome refer-a-friend system :D. Her time ends in 15 days, so I could really really use this :D
Pseudo-random number generator, please pick me!
