    do potential internet speeds (i.e. 3mbps dsl vs. 6mbps cable........or the like) have much impact on download speed of bittornet files?

    i ask because, the best i have ever been able to get on any setup is like 1mbps down, total, of like six different bittorent downloads. usually it's less than that.     so, what i'm asking is this: if i'm only using 1mbps of my bandwidth for utorrent, does it make any difference whether my...

    should i run XP or win7 on my older gaming desktop

    oh, and as far as cooling, it's a basic antec case, with standard intake and exhaust fans, i might open up the vents a bit with a wire cutter for more airflow; but i do have a very high end cpu HSF. it's one of those sunbeam beasts with a solid copper HS, copper heatpipes, leading to a stack of...

    audio for a 90's toyota tacoma

    i'll do something very similar; great idea with the sound dampening; thought if i got an amp it would go behind the seats, but yeah, prob not worth it, and small cab means it'll all be amplified anyway; when i'm far enough away from cops, i'll just use my er6i canalphones; headphones really are...

    audio for a 90's toyota tacoma

    should i get the moto droid or is the incredible too incredible?

    but the 1ghz processor is exactly why the incredible has such **** battery life; i also reallly like the extra pixels on the moto droid. 54x480 is actually a lot of pixels to add width. the simple truth is that until 4g blankets the nation, and that'll be 5 years at least probably, there's no...

    gonna sell xbox and get ps3

    ok, so after this paragraph i totally go off topic, but it's still worth reading, but what i meant to do with this thread was ask whether you think i should sell my xbox360 and get a ps3. i probably won't be making the purchase for several months, and certainly not until fatwallet or someone...

    help me save my dad's life's work: need external HDD

    ok, so ironically my dad works for IBM, but he has ZERO backup on his laptop; he works from home all the time, and if his hdd was lost, he'd be royally ****ed; however, he's a marketing guy, and NOT a tech person; he asked me the other day "what happens when i shut the laptop lid when it's...

    What "old" technologies do we still use today?

    i've got the winner: headphones! or rather, the DRIVER itself. do a little ben franklin-ing and try thousands of different materials to make speaker cones. different shapes, different materials, different cables out of everything from pig fat to titanium. this is where true invention takes...

    older gaming pc: should i use xp or win7?

    so, this system has been a great "investment". i've been able to do a couple minor upgrades, and unless i'm very much mistaken (and let me know if i am), it still can run most games today pretty well. my thinking is that i'll probably do one more upgrade on this system in a year or so: video...
