  1. I play COD MW2 and MW3 and BlackOps on the PC through Steam. I am not that great at it but I found a clan that will let me play anyway. They are a great group of guys and gals. Check out the clan site if you play MW3. http://www.ff-clan.org/news.php
  2. Here is the link to the instructions for turning off your system paging. These are instructions straight from Microsoft and they worked for me. I recommend doing this if you have 6 or more Gigs of RAM. This sped up my entire system noticeably. This is only a suggestion but it helped me. I am also posting a screenshot I made of where to turn off the space allocated for the Page file. This is a separate step and may be a little redundant but it doesn't hurt. http://btfy.me/6fgybp
  3. I have not gotten much use out of the Xbox yet. I am a long time PC gamer and the console controller is so foreign to me right now. I play action games (First Person Shooters) almost exclusively and the keyboard is so much better for that. I am going to have to breakdown and get Call of Duty - Modern Warfare 3 for my 360 though and just tough it out.
  4. So Developer's Preview was horrible. Has anyone tried the consumer PreBeta?
  5. I created 360DegreeNetworking.com as a go-to blog site to address all aspects of Information Technology (anything computer related). I have posted a few articles myself but my current objective has been building the site's viewer traffic. I will continue to do this but now is the time I would really appreciate any help in adding content (articles) to the site. Therefore, I am asking for all computer people (geeks, techies, professionals, secretaries, educators, daily computer users, anyone!) for contributions in the way of informational reviews, tips, guides, news, etc. that we can feature on the site giving you full credit through your own by line. This will give many of you the opportunity to share that bit of golden wisdom you know you have deep inside but have not had an outlet for until now. At the moment there is no profit being made by the site so all contributions will be voluntary (no pay) but you will hopefully benefit from the personal satisfaction and synergy of posting with like minds and enlightening those who are interested in learning from your experience and real world knowledge. If interested, please visit the site and submit an article for approval or email me at compuwise@netzero.com (put 360 in the subject). Articles will need to be around 400 words (no stubs), relevant to current technology, factual (opinions welcome but back them up with some facts) and will be approved returned for editing upon review.
  6. Sounds like a pretty cool system. I have always heard good things about Alienware. I would probably like to have one even though they are associated with Dell whom I have come to despise. I do not like their tech support of customer and have had problems with them at home and at work over many years. I am looking to up my video card from the AMD (ATI) HD 6450 to just about anything higher up in the 6000 series. Dell even states on their website that the 6450 was designed to just barely edge out the onboard Intel video chipset. The 6450 is a pretty decent card but I still want to play Call of Duty MW3 at full resolution and online. My dream system would include a 1gig SSD hard drive (about $3300) and the latest AMD 7000 series video card boasted to be the fastest in the world (also around $3300). This will always be a dream though as I usually build my own systems and spend as little as possible. At work we try not to go over $200 (not counting the OS license). heh
  7. No one likes to be told what to do and I especially do not like the government thinking they know better than me what I need to know but we do not want our enemies to know what we know. I do not like that someone who was not an American took it upon himself to release information that could put American troops in danger. I would not like that situation for any country.Jullian did not have any skin in the game so to speak. It was not his problem. I believe his intentions were for fame. Maybe not money but definitely not for a noble cause.
  8. Did Helio have their own black out? I was not able to access the forums for a week. My site stayed up though. So basically some of the major sites did attempt a watered down blackout. Google only blacked out its logo but search still worked. Was not aware of any services from Google that did not work. Facebook kept clipping right on along with no interruptions. Wikipedia was the only one that I personally noticed that blacked out their page with a message to contact your local government official in protest to SOPA and PIPA. Anyone aware of others that went offline in some way?
  9. Stone Temple Pilots, Alice In Chains, The Beatles
  10. True. That is why I always try to get my info from multiple and varied sources. I am not going to comment on the article itself, but I do want to point out that this is not a completely true statement. This is because writers (not just fox) are able to use the English language and rhetorical devices to portray one side as better than the other. I guess another good question is "What would you do if this did happen?".

  11. Not trying to spread FUD. If you would like to research and then comment that would be great. http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2011/12/30/will-google-amazon-and-facebook-blackout-net/ Simple request and note: 1) Despite how some feel about Fox News they are a major news outlet 2) Fox is only posing the question - you decide 3) I like Fox. Please only comment on the topic of an Internet Black Out.
  12. I like WS FTP from IP Switch http://www.ipswitchft.com/ . They used to offer a free version and may still offer it free to students and non-profits but the latest version I downloaded was only a trial and expired. This what our wiki says about uploading files to your site - http://wiki.helionet.org/Uploading_files_to_your_site You are using your username@yourdomainname.com to log in, right? like username@360degreenetworking.com I guess we will know for sure when you get that screenshot to xaav. You're in good hands with him.
  13. It is just the nature of the Johnny server. I am on Johnny and I use notepad and mostly a third party FTP client. I use cPanel occasionally but yeah you are not going to be able to connect to ftp for long periods of time even if you remain active. You can go back as far as the monitor will let you and see the server has its good days and bad days. http://heliohost.grd.net.pl/monitor/archive/?2011-12-22 This is not something anyone is working on as an open ticket type issue. It may get better in time.
