  1. DOS76 said Sad part is that my movie collection is smaller than my porn. I'm really slacking on building it up. I was noticing that. As first I thought you may have had the most of that, since it was at the top of the list, but then I realized it was just an alphabethical thing.
  2. DOS76 said Backups are essential. You got that right! Back in my Newbie days of running RAID configurations, this happened to me: I was under the impression my RAID setup would "save me", but due to a bum-steer from the Support guy on the phone, I ended-up losing a bunch of data (that may have been irretrievable by then, anyway). After a couple of weeks of crying, whining, and trying to figure-out how to recover the data, I became quite diligent at doing Backups. The tools I was using at the time didn't recover things in much of an organized manner. Nothing had an original file name (just long, cryptic names), so it was almost worse then having nothing at all. My motto at the time bacame, "If you lose all your data without Backups, it's all over, except for the cryin'!" Now I regularly B/U my Docs, Email, game progress, of course, and rebuild stuff - I try to be mostly 'portable', in that I have mostly current versions of my installation software, so I can do a pretty complete Rebuild without the Network (Microsoft Patches notwithstanding). About the only thing I have in the Cloud now (aside from those Guides I've been throwin' onto MediaFire), is my Master Password File. Perhaps I should put more up there. I believe Google alone gives ya 15GB for free.
  3. SentaiBrad said Also, HEY! Jason is a lot better looking than myself. xD But, I can easily one-up ya on not bein' as pretty as the next guy. Remember my Crash & Burn photo from last year? I was runner-up to "National Champion of Ugly" that month. [Insert laughing here] I came a little too close to crashin' on my Mountain Bike today when I was ridin' down an outdoor stairway. It sucks when ya can't do the stuff that used to be easy, such as finding your way home. [Insert laughing here, too]
  4. If I win a big Lottery, I'll buy that $100K Video Game collection on eBay for "LaunchBox", among many other lavish gifts!
  5. Good day, Kirsten! This is an odd Topic for me, in that there are NO 'Smileys' to pick from, and there's NO "Upload Files" button, either??? Is this Moderator trickery? But, anyway, welcome to the best resource a Gamer could have, Kirsten. Yippee, finally someone good-lookin' on the Team! No offense Jason and Brad. [Insert Smiley Face here]. As I'm sure you're already aware, this is a great Forum. Jason and Brad are awesome, as are the contributors. I'm curious, how did you find the job, if you don't mind me asking...? I'm sure you have some crazy tech skills. You'll use 'em plenty to keep-up with Jason and Brad!
  6. Did You Know Gaming?
  7. It has been done! P.S. I gotta get over and welcome Kirsten. Sorry I've been so lame in that department, Kirsten.
  8. DOS76 said I have 4 of them Shit! Hey, Derek, weren't you one of those guys is a Topic way back that had a bunch of those Hard-Drive screenshots (as Brad has in the 1st Post), and you had like drives C-Z? It's not a bad lookin' little box, either. I bet it looks cool with 4 of those lined-up, side-by-side.
  9. Well, as it turned-out, my intended recipient isn't as much of a Gamer as I thought. But, I still wanna get one to help support one of the best programs ever! So, I'll send ya $50 and you can offer it up in the next contest you have, or whatever. Is that doable?
  10. SentaiBrad said Now I get to transfer my emulators folder over to it. xD Over 1.1 million ROM's?
  11. DOS76 said That's why I love these after there is no more room for internal drives these are great! That thing's cool. Is it fairly quiet? How big is that rear fan?
  12. Doom for PS4 is only $30. That seems good. There are many other games, too.
  13. SentaiBrad said It's not an IPS (which is just the type of screen), but you probably won't honestly notice it. No, probably not. 40 years ago I had 20/15 vision, but not now. I did an experiment a few years back where I synced-up a DVD and Blu-ray disc of Avatar (2 different players, obviously) to the same TV (a nice Samsung). Whilst swithing between the two on different types of scenes, I was hard-pressed to notice a significant difference (I found the difference to be pretty slight). Point being, my vision isn't that great anymore.
  14. DOS76 said I haven't looked at all I'm trying to reign in my spending. I'm trying to curb my spending as well, but I continue to fail.
  15. Nice, Dude! That phone is nuts! 128Gb? Holy crap! I still have a flip-phone. Yay, I found another monitor. Seems like a okay deal. Nothin' like what you guys probably have, but I'm using a 4:3 monitor now.
  16. Many of the deals are quite good, but everything has a "time window" to buy within. Many of the deals have already ended, including the monitor I was gonna save 32% on. Doh! Many other items aren't on sale yet - it appears they put different things 'out' every 5 minutes.
  17. [Click on Pic] Or click here to get it on Steam.
  18. This would be awesome in the 'Game Room' (albeit distracting for Gaming)! Mega Tetris CPU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z71h9XZbAWY
  19. Click here for more info. I believe you can get free games back a month or two.
