Ensure that you refresh the current page once, regardless of what browser you are using, before contacting me about display issues. Also, Netscape 4.x has little support for CSS and contains a display bug that effects page layout after resizing the window. As such, instead of opting to use a well known "javascript workaround," I choose NOT to display the navigation structure on Netscape 4.x and below. I also do not change ANY text viewing parameters (colors). If you wish to see the domain as I intend, please use a [Continue Reading]

Quick Rant: (View the previous ones) When I purchased Asheron’s Call 2, really, my first "online broadband experience," I was hoping for a time of fun and enjoyment. However, with their "monthly" updates to the game, only thing it seems like I am doing is paying $12.95 a month for the privilege of BETA testing the product! Take this month for example: "New content" was uploaded to the server for another "episode," however it introduced a bug that causes all crafted items to be "tier 1." For those of you [Continue Reading]

BINGO! Finally, Intel releases today "my dream chipset." The new Intel 875P chipset includes support for all of the latest gadgets; to name a few: AGP8X Dual-channel DDR400 memory Quad pumped 200 MHz bus speed (equating to 800 MHz vice 133 x 4 = 533) RAID 0 (stripping) with a Serial ATA interface USB 2.0 Even though the first P4 CPU’s that support the new 800 MHz bus have been postponed due to "problems," the 875P chipset is the step in the right direction for Intel to finally implement all [Continue Reading]
