Holy crap how much porn do you guys need to watch at one time?

As many as we want!

What's really cool is spanning a video across all four screens, which gives you this huge area, but you have to sit back a bit to enjoy it. At that point, it's almost better to turn on the the 32" and stream the video on that.

Your image reminds me of one the things which really annoys me, that you can't set different backgrounds for different

I'm actually running a screensaver across all 5 screens. I use DesktopFusion, the free version lets you set different desktops on each screen. The paid version lets you run the same screen saver on each screen or different screensavers on each screen.

I have that 32", but there is a reason it's 5' away from me. It's fucking hot. Don't get me wrong, the four screens put out a decent amount of heat, but not as much as the 32".

Six screens, one desk.

Big deal. I have 5 (possible 6) hooked up to one PC.

2 x Dell 2007 WFP
2 x HP L2045w
1 x BBY LCD (32" Dynex Flat Screen)

I have two graphics cards:

ATI Radeon HD4200 (On-board, supports 1 VGA and 1 DVI/HDMI)
ATI Radeon HD4600 (PCI-x, supports 4 x DVI)

I would be ok with this if games weren't 60.00. There are VERY FEW games that have enough content to be worth that much. Every year they pump out less content per disc and more DLC.

Isn't that the truth.

That's why I think this whole 'not playing used games' is crap. We get less and less content every year for our $60.

The only consolation we get is that there will be DLC, which is generally released right after launch and/or there is occasionally some stupid achievement or trophy for playing through the game more than once.

Providing it keeps good games coming and especially if it keeps game developers employed, I am OK - but not happy - with:

Getting nickel and dime'd on the DLC.
Paying for an 'unlock' key as long as the price is reasonable.
Paying MORE for a game.

I am NOT OK with all three combined. Even IF it keeps devs employed.

Do your worst AT&T. The more customers you drive away, the better I'll feel.

Thats right. I dropped my AT&T account because my Android's 'unlimited data' on Verizon is still unlimited and hasn't increased in cost.

I have bone to pick with Verizon about my aircard, but thats another story.

You mistakenly think that Microsoft wants a distinction between the two. They don't want you to rent a game or buy it used, they want you to buy it new.

I don't think Microsoft is pushing this, I think its coming from the publishers. They have been bitching about the used market for years. I guess they are not big fans of capitalism!

But to that point, you are correct - they don't really care if its rented or used, they want you to buy a copy of it since thats where they make money.

I don't see how this is Microsoft's problem to address in the console since its really a problem the publishers need to solve.

Besides, this is total crap anyway. It would be like OEMs preventing PCs from running pirated versions of Windows.

Or even better, like Apple preventing beige-box PC from running OS X.

Call of Duty- Modern Warfare 3 Xbox disc read errors.

I wonder if this problem will hit me...I have 4 Xbox 360s (its a long story), so it should be easy to find at least one that can read it!

//Start Rant

OMG! They are going to <something awful>!! I can remember when gaming was <nostalgic comment>. Those were the good old days. I won't buy <game title> from <publisher>. <Publisher Rep> is such a <vulgar label>! <Rival publisher> would never do this, they care about their customers. I'll just buy it used from <Store that sells used games> and not give them any of my money. Assholes.

<something awful>: If we put up with it, we make it acceptable.
<nostalgic comment>: No, it was never that good. Playing online was slow, games didn't automatically update and LPBs made the rest of us hate life.
<game title>: The next awesome game to come out.
<publisher>: The biggest publisher with the most money to throw out for the next awesome game.
<publisher rep>: The <vulgar label> who thinks <something awful> is a totally neat idea.
<vulgar label>: Use your imagination!
<rival publisher>: The 'other guys' who would screw us too, if they thought of it first.
<Store that sells used games>: The place where you will buy the game used for 10-15 USD off full retail only to discover that you need to buy some 20 USD DLC to play the game.

//End Rant

Seriously, since everyone (including myself) doesn't like these folks reaching into our pockets for more money, why do we even buy the games? Is it going to make our lives any better that we dropped 100+ hours into the game?

At some point, the amount of money that they are asking for the experience just isn't worth it anymore.


Edit: Fixed a spelling mistake!

Is connecting to WiFi from Windows really as hard as MacDonalds claims?

Having written pages and pages of documentation and knowning that you end up documenting on your own machine, I wonder if McDonalds uses static IPs for WIFI.

Yep, people have been doing it with Usenet for quite some time now even. The media interests try to go after the index providers but other than that there isn't much they can do.

In a way, its kinda funny.

Basically, the RIAA and MPAA are providing an environment for people to create continue making secure file swapping over the Internet!

Why Your Business Should Worry About the ISP Copyright Fight.

I can see people starting to use SSL and VPNs to start passing copywrited material.

Maybe it's because I just woke up but...

1. They don't know know how much they are going to charge for it.
2. They never explain the benefits of it, or what it actually is.
3. They say non-subscribers won't be excluded from anything...

So... What the hell is the point? Is it a stupid tax for fanboys?

That and free publicity.

Ballmer: Piracy costs Microsoft 95% of potential Chinese revenue.

I guess showing them the source code so you could sell Microsoft products in China wasn't such a good idea, was it?

I hate that this show was canceled, and yet I never watched a single episode. Why? Because I'm tired of getting into shows only to see them canceled without any closure.

Isn't that the truth?

Sometimes it takes a while for the writers to figure out what works for the characters and for the cast to get the chemistry.

Firefly hit both on the first episode.

I've taken to watching the old Stargates on Netflix just to get a feeling of good TV again, but I'm really close to just killing Cable TV and streaming everything I want to watch.

Of course, once they introduce B/W caps in this area, that plan will be screwed, but its nice to dream of sticking it to 'big cable'.
