How Not to Do It – Cube Taps

Posted by aonomus on December 28, 2007

Its the wonderful time of year where you get Christmas trees out and load them up with lights to consume more power, but as a warning to people, keep in mind not to overdo it. This is the result of putting 2 outdoor Christmas tree’s on a single timer, and putting that timer on a cube-tap.

Overkill much?

Posted by aonomus on December 26, 2007

So ASUS seems to have come out with a LCD with a protective cover made of ‘crystal sapphire’, the LS201….

However who would ever take a arbalest to a LCD? Maybe a better test would be a ballistics comparison of 9mm, .45ACP, 5.56mm, and .50BMG rounds…..

Also a cnet review for the readers.
