Ever since I moved the site over to Linux, I’ve had weird, unexplained issues, most often the network would stop responding with no warning.
While researching, I found a lot of mixed reviews about this device, but I’ve pretty much resolved all of the issues that these people were complaining about.
I bought the shiny new FX-4170 processor Asus M5A78L-M LX motherboard, 8 gigabytes of RAM, used an Antec 650W PSU out of a side build, purchased a motherboard, and put it all together. And (drum roll, please), got nothing. Nada. Zip.
Far Cry 3 is pretty much sweeping everyone’s “Game of the Year” awards. While the game is really solid in many areas, there are some glaring issues that reviewers should consider before handing out their coveted award badges.
We appreciate the fans of OCmodshop, so we’re giving away lots of great free stuff to the people who support us.
We’re giving away a bunch of hardware and nerd-related toys!
Tomorrow morning a total of 78 people will come together and get on the bus that will drive us all the way to Sweden. The trip will start around noon and will take a total of 19 hours, to arrive at the venue just before it opens at 8am the next morning
We are giving away download codes for “The Walking Dead” game by Telltale games. We have a code for the Xbox 360 version (all episodes), and the PC version via Steam.
It’s only been two weeks since the launch of Windows 8. Although Microsoft claims huge sales figures, not everything is a bed of roses. Steven Sinofsky, the President of the Windows division was let go from the company on Monday. While Microsoft claims the break is due to a personality conflict between him and other [...]
Dreamhack Winter 2012 is coming up, and OCmodshop is going to be there! I will try and give you a quick look into “the” world’s BIGGEST LAN-Party.
I do know that having a site being purchased spells eventual doom. VoodooExtreme was recently canned by IGN, and a few affiliate tech sites like motherboards.org have changed leadership when the owners sold their rights away.
Since we are getting a lot of new products in, I have a severe need to take product photos in order to get these reviews out the door. Unfortunately the OCmodshop professional photo studio also has a part-time job as a garage, and it is currently stuffed fuller than Don’s mom at Thanksgiving. It’s also [...]
I don’t know which is more important, that it is Election Day or that Halo 4 was released worldwide at midnight! Well, except for in Japan where they have to wait a few extra days… that will show them to have competing consoles.
The start of November also means the start of the Christmas season (at least for us here at OCmodshop). Vendors really want to get reviews done on their new products, so that our loyal readers can be informed about the products they want to buy this year. As we’ve said in our Anti-Gift-Giving Guide (link [...]
So what does that mean for us sci-fi geeks who liked Star Wars and those guys who still live in their parents’ basements, living and breathing the sacred trilogies? Well, apparently Disney has more movies planned.
Halloween is here, and OCmodshop is celebrating. You may have noticed the festive dress-up on the site. The next few months are chock-full of holidays, so the site will be a lot more festive.
Here’s a quick way to delete all email within your gmail account.
But the big hit isn’t coming from consumers, yet. It’s coming from the world of PC game developers. The guys over at Valve are calling Windows 8 a disaster for PC gamers.
WordPress is a great content management system, but one of the weirdest quirks about its WYSIWYG editor is inserting two or more centered images side-by-side. There is a way to do this in the Visual editor without having to enter any custom HTML and works without compromising your layout.
You may have noticed the new pirate-y themed background as you peruse through your favorite tech site today.
One of the features the old OCmodshop site had was wallpaper that changed with each holiday. Bringing this feature back has been one of the things on my list since we moved to our new content management system.
