Back in the day when I had the time and money to upgrade constantly these socket changes were a major inconvenience and expense. Now I don't upgrade much I just wait until I feel it's time and replace the whole thing. By then not only is there a new socket required, but new memory, new video card with a new DirectX, etc.

Wow bummer. I was just there last week to see her sitting on the Launch Pad. Even though the hotel I was staying at was over 40 miles away they have been booked for months. Everyone should get to KSC and see the space shuttle on the launch pad before the last one goes up. They are already taking apart one of the 2 shuttle launch pads :-(

1928 Time Traveler Caught On Film? 685

Posted by samzenpus
from the I-hate-time-travel-stories dept.
Many of you have submitted a story about Irish filmmaker George Clarke, who claims to have found a person using a cellphone in the "unused footage" section of the DVD The Circus, a Charlie Chaplin movie filmed in 1928. To me the bigger mystery is how someone who appears to be the offspring of Ram-Man and The Penguin got into a movie in the first place, especially if they were talking to a little metal box on set. Watch the video and decide for yourself.

In addition to being able to host the game on your own system, you can connect to these PS3 clusters for 24 or 32 player games. Additionally Warhawk will be released on both a standard Blu-ray disc or for about $20 less by downloading it from PSN."

+ - Blockbuster chooses Blu-ray

Submitted by
DeadBugs writes "With Blu-ray accounting for 70% of Blockbuster's Hi-def rentals, they have decided to switch entirely over to Blu-ray. Several news sites are now reporting that Blockbuster has taken sides in the format war. Blockbuster has been testing both formats in 250 stores (out of 1450) and has decided on a Blu-ray over HD-DVD. Could this be the end of the format war?"
