I'm sure most users have had a look through all the sites under the Stardock banner, no matter what their "native" site may be but the two in particular i want people to be familiar with is Elemental and SINS, more specifically, their forums pages, and in particular, the page background images.



Now, they look mighty nice, and to me really add something to the page. They both seem to reflect a grander scale, of something with depth and...well for lack of a better...

Hey all, i have my DuoOrb currently on my lga775 core 2 quad but im upgrading to a core i5 in a 1155 socket. It occurs to me that my DuoOrb will not be of any use.
Does anyone know of adapter plates or anything of the like that will allow it to fit? perhaps the 1155 mobo's simply do not allow its size...

If this is a lost cause, anyone have any good cooling suggestions for socket 1155. I really liked the twin fan side by side design of the DuoOrb,

It will be a shame to see it relegat...

What in the billions of blue blistering barnacles does this emoticon mean... ???

Is this to say, "i am happy it is raining, and slightly embarrassed?" I have never had use for this smiley nor do i recall seeing it used. (cue the many replies with this smiley in it)

Imageshack Hacked.

Some group has hacked imageshack and replaced all images with their propaganda.

It has borked my Tyranny of Evil site rank images and i have lost many other images, to their message.

Bara, i know you busy and all, but since you have been tweaking the forums of late i thought I'd throw out the suggestion of a "Unsubscribe from Thread" feature.

I know there are plenty of folks who after making a reply in a topic, then see that topic listed in their my replies long after their interest has faded on that topic.

This would be most helpful for in the OT forums where topics can digress from the OP quite easily, making further contributions non existent.  But i see a use ...

This discussion started across two different threads. To avoid hijacking those threads i have copy and pasted the 3 last and most pertainent replies here for further discussion.

For those just joining in, we are basically discussing the lack of function for ranks since the linking and upgrading of the forums and the SD banners that identify their expertise or position and how the two could be combined to offer all members such a system.

I bought Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (PS3) on Wedensday and i have just finished it, it's Friday morning here. (I'm in Australia.)

I really expected alot more depth in the game, it seems they sacrificed the depth and longevity of the game to focus on the visual aspect and how it plays.

I mean they really excelled at t...

So I pretty much hate all smokers. Well there are exceptions of course but the generic butt throwing smoker can kiss my ass. I am sick of walking down the street and seeing those little filthy orange butts everywhere.

Christ people can't you clean up after yourselves?

I'm sure you don't drop these things on your floors at home do you, I bet you use an ashtray that you then empty into a bin...so what is the fraking difference when your out...
