    TV Tuner card recommendations

    also, if your running WinXP i would not suggest using a ATI TV Wonder cuz ATI never released any WinXP compatible drivers (the Win2000 drivers just barely work, but still have lots of bugs) and the Multimedia center v7.1 has a bunch of bugs in WinXP too (although some of those bugs may also be...

    Western digital hard drives

    I got a Maxtor 4gig drive about 5 years ago and have been using it all the time ever since and its never given even the slightest problem to me. in my experience Maxtor is a solid brand and their hardrives are amoung the best priced too (way cheaper then ANY WD drive for the same capacity) ...

    Time Warner to Charge for Excessive Bandwidth Usage..

    until now Satelilite internet was always done by downloading from the satelilite to your dish etc but uploads were only possible by using your dial up, so in that sense they were only for the desperate people out in the middle of nowhere, these days some companies have been trying out Satilite...

    Am I shit

    well with VF2 you can easily beat the single player game by only doing basic throws (just watch out when the computer occasionally counters that!!), the only reason i dont like doing that is cuz its a MAJORLY cheap way to win! when trying to play seriously the game does get tougher otherwise...

    i personally love all 3 games in the series! reason for Streets of Rage 1 is i think the music is the BEST of the whole series, otherwise its fair but not as good as the 2 sequels (i paid about 10 bucks canadian for it a while ago so i thought why not get it for the music!) reason for Streets...

    replacing the battery in old genesis carts

    yeah its strange for me too cuz i read somewhere that these batteries are supposed to last up to 5 or so years, but i have a Pirates Gold cart, man i was smart to buy that back in the day :) and the battery still works over 7 years after i bought the game (i bought it a few months after it came...

    Ebay Question?

    yeah especially around christmas time prices for anything goes way higher, one thing i would suggest is signing up with PayPal cuz it uses your credit card and most ebay sellers accept it, meaning you can pay them instantly and only have to wait for the auction to be mailed to you which saves...

    i believe the japanese versions of those games are the only ones that supported the cable (but wtf was the point of Capcom vs SNK supporting it?) basically it was a very underutilized cord, which is why it only came out in japan

    Internet Free Access?

    there are some ways but most are rather complicated, also since started charging $10 US a month to play all online games (except PSO v1, thats the only game that is still free now) the only thing a free isp will do is let you surf on your DC for free, and in that case you might as well...
