Planets are small and dark and it was not until pretty recently that we were able to see them outside our own solar system.    One way of looking for them out there is to look for their gravitational pull on other objects we can see. The presence of a planet's mass can cause a nearby star to "wobble" in its regular orbit, and that's somethning we can see more easily.      Another way is to zoom way in on a star and look for dark objects crossing in front of it....
It's still a great game! I never got into the SC2 beta so I spent a lot of the last 6 months playing SC1 to brush up on my skills. It was very good practice, I find. Things have changed but strategically and tactically many of the same concepts apply.   Yes! I have watched a ton of HDstarcraft's game casts and they're awesome. Some folks think it's weird to watch a recording of other people playing a video game, but when you watch extremely skilled players with a good...
I completely agree. This is my big complaint about the campaign right now. I want a challenge, but putting me on a rushed countdown isn't my idea of a good challenge. And you're right - the missions really are scripted. I'm thinking about the first mission on Char where you need to retrieve units that are landing in dropships. They drop at precise times and you have to run around dealing with them as they drop in their prescribed order. It's deliberately designed to mess...
Probably would like to plug into the wall, yeah. Just to keep down the battery costs and waste.
Thanks. Those Turtle Beach headphones look nice. A little more than I was hoping to spend, perhaps. The cord would also have to be really long to reach from the machine to where I sit. I guess I forgot to mention that. I run the signal through a long miniplug extension cable, around the room to the sofa.   I'm not much good with a soldering iron, though I'm sure the Altoids Cmoy is a fun project. Too many other projects backed up on my list!    Any suggestions...
Hola Head-Fi'ers!    Question from a pretty green newb here. I need a way to amplify the audio that comes out of my Xbox 360 so I can listen to it with headphones. The signal is very weak when I plug the headphones in directly, I believe because it's an unamplified signal. Right now I have it going into a console amplifier, and from there to headphones. I'd like to get the big console amp out of the room completely. So I guess I need a headphone amp. But I've never...
Custom titles should all be there. Here's one, for example. Please let us know if any didn't make it. Would be happy to fix.   Very excited to be a part of Head-Fi!   EDIT: bigs thanks to those who reported missing titles. Looks like we missed a few somehow. Investigating! We'll get them all... feel free to PM me if you are missing yours. 
Music from Braid (the video game). Awesome stuff...!

Interesting to note that, according to the Wikipedia article on "Wi-Fi," the "fi" part of Wifi means absolutely nothing. "Wi" obviously means "wireless" but "fi" literally came out of nowhere - it just rhymed with hi-fi. But "fidelity" of signal is a dubious networking concept at best.
