Submission + - Inside Newegg's east coast distribution center (extremetech.com)

MrSeb writes: "Did you know that Newegg is the second largest e-tailer in the US, after Amazon? Perhaps building your own computer isn't dead yet! ExtremeTech's Matthew Murray was recently invited to take a tour of the Newegg east coast distribution center, and the facts that he dug up — and the pictures he shot — make for perfect curiosity-sating, Friday afternoon surfing fodder for any American build-it-yourself computer geek."

Why not get Zalman to create the worlds largest heat sync and place it on top of the volcano -- combined with geothermal-tech you could effectively cool down the core of the volcano and harness some pretty good energies from it too.

Just an FYI currently where I am at (southern Alberta, just outside of Lethbridge). I am maxed out at 3Mbps down on a good day when my DSL isn't bottlenecked from the DSLAM. On average I get about 1.7Mbps with 120ms Ping to most places.

Capcom 'Saddened' By Game Plagiarism Controversy 163

Capcom's recent release of action platformer Maxsplosion for the iPhone caused indie developer Twisted Pixel to call Capcom out for copying the concept from their successful Xbox Live game 'Splosion Man. Twisted Pixel said they had no plans for legal action, since they were "too small to take on a company like Capcom." The indie studio had even pitched the game to Capcom for publishing at one point, but were declined. Now, Capcom has released a statement denying that Maxsplosion's development team had any knowledge of the meetings and saying, "MaXplosion was developed independently by Capcom Mobile. Nonetheless, we are saddened by this situation and hope to rebuild the trust of our fans and friends in the gaming community."

The DAILY WTF ought to be called the SOMETIMES DAILY WTF..... hasn't been regular in a while and they've been doing a crapload of reposting lately. Good times tho; some really interesting stories at that.

Still far above infoworlds' ad riddled pages.

Comment Multiplayer Experience (Score 1) 854

I enjoy playing games for both Single and Multiplayer -- which is why i'm drawn towards games like TF / TF2 and CoD etc... The only trouble i'm finding these days is the danged game hackers. Wall hacks, aimbots, modded lobbies all make life more frustrating when i'm just wanting a challenging experience playing someone else on a somewhat level field of play.

It's reassuring to know that there is a 1:1 relationship between devices and mac addresses and that each device in the world that requires a mac address has its own very unique mac and that there is no duplication. Heaven forbid the calamity that should arise if there was any duplication at all.
