    Hey good people! I am busy planning out redoing the man cave, and the idea would be to have a lazyboy type chair and one of those lapboards for the keyboard and mouse, etc. Now, the big question that is on my mind is do I get a 4k 55" TV, or one of those big ultra-wide pc monitors. So, guys...

    Hi guys I wonder if anyone here can help me - my father-in-law and I want to setup a wireless network between our two places - we're about 450m as the crow flies from each other, and line-of-sight I think will be possible with a pole or two. Main reason is he's on the one plot in town...

    Loadout Review

    I've always liked shooter action games, and I remember a buddy and I used to LAN (with coax cables nonetheless!) Half-life 1 a decade and a half ago. I grew up in a small town, and it was basically just the two of us who played. Every now and again a 3rd guy would join in, but that wasn't very...
