Thanks!

I figured this was probably coming eventually, but it is still a sad day. The Thoughts Empire was a meaningful part of my online / gadget life over the past 10 years or so. ...shudder--yes ten years...

At home, I currently have a decent setup with some M-Audio AV-40's (LONG internal debate between these and the A2's, but I finally settled for the cheaper solution). I've got them hooked in through a...

Nice analysis! I must admit that I've spent very little time looking at these, though as I've mentioned previously, I'm not yet convinced of the need for a high-compromise, smallISH ILC. And I guess...

There are two modes, not entirely unlike Lion. Metro's the default, but you can think of it as a gigantic upgrade to the start menu--it actually replaces the start menu entirely. The Win key toggles...

Sony's come up with the first real innovation in the DSLR form factor since, well, it became "D"SLR. 'Course I'm assuming it's still an "R" since it has the phase-detect AF and the mirror (albeit...

I think at least 5% of that NEX-7 remains that is not movable, touchable, or backlit. What a waste. :)

While I really like what they've accomplished with this, I still don't have any real use for...

Hmm, interesting thought. Newegg's got a Corsair Nova 60GB for $75. I may just have look into that. Though I need another dadgum drive letter like I need a <insert favored cliche here>.



Yup,...

Yeah, I've been considering moving the cache folders back, as it really did make a large difference. The other challenge is the size. Too small, more overwrites and less drive life. Too big and my...

Well, probably yes. Though given his setup (a questionably intelligent "open" access point for guests), that would've been my first thought--close that down and see what happens. Of course now I'd...

I consider myself to be extremely technical and I honestly would have assumed that the 250 GB cap would have been download-only, as well. They already cap the upload rate at a 5th or less of the...

Nope, no love for Mesh. At least no performance improvements that I can detect.

I truly don't get it. It spends 15+ minutes on boot "scanning files" and consuming up to 50% of my CPU. It really is...

This is very exciting to me, as well. I'm a bit of a display-nazi myself, especially in terms of (real) contrast. I have a feeling that this is going to be one of those things that just "happens" to...

Definitely cool and a welcome change. Still need two major things to make it a truly useful service. First is the ability to increase the storage limit (and the maximum file size). 25 GB (and 100 MB...
