1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    You and I are the only two people in North America who saw In Bruges. Unforgetable. Everyone else missed out.​

    "Unforgiven [Blu-ray]"
    "Commando [Blu-ray]"

    "The Departed [Blu-ray]"
    "Nine Inch Nails Live - Beside You in Time [Blu-ray]"
    "V for Vendetta [Blu-ray]"
    "Batman Begins [Blu-ray]"
    "2001: A Space Odyssey [Blu-ray]"
    "Troy - The Director's Cut [Blu-ray]"

    I saw it when it came out on DVD, it's a great movie. But I'm usually biased towards movies that take place in Europe.

    A 2TB drive=$250.

    [...]

    /nerd


    FYI today Newegg has them for $125 shipped after the 10% "bing cash back." That's crazy cheap.

    I can't bother to look right now, but most of the 2tb drives are shite so far. They're LP or "Green" drives. They're slow as fack. The Seagate 2TB drives in particular are awful (google seagate 2tb clicking noise). The only company that's released a 7200rpm drive last I checked was Hitachi.

    Rotational speed affects latency and seeking, not transfer rates. You wouldn't install an operating system, a database, or a video game on a 5400 rpm drive, but it's good for pictures, movies, general data storage, etc.

    I also picked up a pair of 1.5tb external drives for $90 each after the cashback. They make great Christmas presents.
