248q uses an 8-bit e-ips panel. the 246q used p-ips which explains why the 248q costs less than its predecessor.

the 248q also has 1:1 scaling for 4:3 and 16:9 unlike the 24" dell IPS monitors. and yes it is 1920x1200.

also /jelly of alchemist007s keyboard.

Yeah, the fact that it's a lower costing 8-bit and covered by a 3 yr warranty by Asus (who make quality products), it's basically the best thing anyone can get without shelling out some ridiculous amount. The only risk in getting it was that it's a newer model so user reviews are only just coming out, which of course are all positive so far. The only issue was the backlight bleed which actually gets significantly subdued after a week of use. It's crazy not to get this 1200p for $340!

The keyboard is also pretty sweet. Just had to use something extra to prop up the back since I'm used to such elevation and the included hinges were useless.

Bought a couple of old films on cheap here :-



Didn't get Heat on blu because I heard the HD transfer wasn't that good. But might consider upgrading if I happen to like the movie enough after 1 or 2 viewings.

Kudos to those who manage to see the somewhat loose links between all 3 films.

LG E1941 for $78 as a second monitor for my gaming rig.

It's main purpose at the moment is to display the DayzDB map for loot locations. XD

Out of game it constantly monitors my Xfire and TeamSpeak channels.

Ugh could you tell me where you got GW2? I don't know where to buy from in order to get the code instantly and the physical copy (is that possible?) in time for the 3 day headstart.

^ i bought mine on their website: https://www.guildwars2.com/en/

you just have to buy it from their website and then they will give you the
product number. you can then download the client, which is very big, like
11 gigs or something. hope that helps.

remember to Pre-Purchase and check if your credit card/pay pal is charged. after
that, you're set. enjoy the waiting until 8/25/2012!

EDIT: about the physical copy, sorry, i dont know. i only gotten the digital copy of it.

It's ok, thanks. I just wanted to see if anywhere but the main site had it because well, it costs 50, far and away from the 35 average for pre-ordering. I did manage to find just one reputable retailer selling it for pre-purchase for 39.83, whether 3 days head-start is worth 4.83 or not I don't know, though I must admit I do want to reserve character names.

^ if you can get the 3 days head start, i think it's well worth the extra price. go for it!
you can play this game on Saturday the 25th or Tuesday the 28th. i'd prefer playing it on
the weekend vs. the weekday...that's just me though since i have more free time on the weekend. :P

Got quite a number of packages from online shopping today:
  • A 5000mAh external battery, capable of charging up portable devices via USB. Will probably come in handy in the near future.
  • Seagate Momentus 2.5" 500GB SATA 3Gb/s 5400RPM Hard Drive (ST9500325AS) - It's great to finally be able to boost the capacity of my PS3 and make it a little more useful (such as storing digitally downloaded games, PS Vita backups and perhaps act as a DVR down the road).
  • Western Digital My Passport 1 TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive (WDBBEP0010BBK-NESN) - Running out of storage to store my PC game backups and anime, again...
I guess I had better look into getting a bigger internal HDD while I'm at it.

Well a thrift store was near me was having a moving sale and all the VHS tapes were 50 cents. bein gthe huge entertainment geek I am I leaped on over to give it a look and exited with a small but good haul of movies.

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
The Rocketeer
Apollo 13
True Romance
Reservoir Dogs
Dead Poets Society
The Abyss
Seven

Sometimes I wonder why I even bother buying VHS tapes anymore since the format is pretty much dead, but hey its cheaper and I'm not totally in need of HD quality to enjoy my movie so whatever I guess.
