    Can anyone recommend me a new gaming mouse? Mine broke and I've managed to save around Ā£30 to get a new one. The only requirement is at least 2500 dpi, preferably two side buttons and a decent warranty. Edited: Also I did try in the mouse buying guide thread but no replies
    intellimouse, basically a cheaper and sturdier sidewinder without the ugly casing

    this looks decent but I just spotted the G400 for £25, would that be better?

    I can vouch for the G400/G500, they're excellent mice. I have a G500 myself and the build quality is nice, and the mouse even stores settings on itself, so I don't have to rebind shit across different systems. (I use the side buttons as media buttons )

    I really need to find an old P4 board that I can put a 9250 and DDR2 in. Gotta get myself a Linux box running.
    If it's socket 478, here you go dude: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138302

    I ordered and used a few to rebuild old prebuilts into somewhat manageable shape.

    That will probably run BF3 on a mix of medium and low. Possibly medium with some things on high.

    Considering I got 200 for each rebuild, I'm not gonna argue with paying 60.

    Does it have pins or contact plates?

    I found a neat program.
    GameSave Manager

    It can scan your HDD for game save locations and then back them all up, and even automatically create and manage SymLinks so you can have all of your saves on Dropbox, for example. So now all of my save games are automatically on the cloud.

    I was already doing this manually but this program makes it a ton easier.

    Just change your DropBox directory to your Google Drive folder in options and it will work fine.

    That sounds quite cool. I think I'll look into that, I don't want to lose game saves that are like 80hrs long.

    Just change your DropBox directory to your Google Drive folder in options and it will work fine.

    That doesn't work unfortunately.

    Meanwhile on the Microsoft side of things, Windows Phone 8 might possibly maybe have Bluetooth API.

    The whole Windows Phone situation just makes me feel bad for Microsoft, someone should just tap them on the shoulder and tell them to let go.

    Speaking of which, urbanspoon stole my idea. I had a working prototype and everything, just never fancied up the interface, and then a month later BOOM urbanspoon app came out

    Of course the server I was hosting it on crashed shortly after and now I have no backups and zero proof.

    Mine was functionally better too, had all the same features but also used google maps and GPS to show the nearest location and prevent it from showing a restaurant further away than a user inputted value (default 10 miles) and it let you choose between breakfast lunch, dinner, and desert and I could add weight to choices if some company wanted to pay for that

    I created Angry Birds before Rovio but then the CEO came with a bunch of thugs, shot me in the leg, stole the source code, burnt my hard drive with thermite and a tornado destroyed the off-site backups.

    Hey, we're someone here who like the OS - it's not bad if you don't need the things that are offered by other OS's. I don't need for much else than calling, taking a picture, browsing, sending messages and so forth, and these things it does quite brilliantly. Especially for the price. The interface is really good as well, and for the same price as this I could've gotten something that would be slower and less appealing (and those are really the parameters for the phone, when I don't need the other functionality). Besides, we have yet to get sales numbers from Nokia, and I frequently see Lumias in the bus, train, etc.

    How is the application market? That was one of my main concerns when I was looking at phones.

    So I want to build a giant ripping machine. My mom has like trillions of CD's and I want them all in FLAC or ALAC on the server I'm building. So at work a friend and me worked on a way to take all these old drives and build some sort of giant ripping machine.

    Basically we think we're going to make 10 drive towers and hook three together. Then run them all to an average computer. I might build a really average quad core computer like an i3, then get like 5-6 sata controllers. And get some IDE to Sata converters on ebay, plug each drive in, run it to the controller card and viola, we have thirty CD/DVD drives to rip media to the server.

    Anyone see any glaring issues?

    Not automatically, but batch ripping. Fill all the drives with CD's, rip, wait a while since it will be bottlenecked, and proceed again.
