20. Oblivion Tips from the Developers
If you feel like starting a new character, but you want to get him or her off the ground more quickly, head to the Arena after escaping the character generation sewer. The entire arena quest line will take you a few hours to beat if you’ve sharpened your fighting skills. In the process your character will probably gain several levels, and a good bit of gold to move around on some equipment upgrades before heading out to do some adventuring. Don’t forget to check the Arena coffer on the way out. This is the best way to get a character into the mix quickly.
Buying a house is not just a good way to kill some time. It instantly gets rid of the need to part with those oh-so-valuable items to avoid being over-encumbered. Especially if you have finished a Daedric quest or two, and you don’t want to have to carry around those rare artifacts, but you don’t want to sell them either. Try to purchase one that can be easily accessible by fast travel. The on e in the Imperial City waterfront is quite accessible, and fairly affordable (though it is not much to look at). You can purchase this house at the Office of Imperial Commerce, in the Market District, assuming Vinicia likes you enough.
19. SanDisk 1GB miniSD Memory Card
The miniSD card is 21.5 mm long, 20mm wide and 1.4 mm thick, occupying a volume of 602 cubic mm. The new format was developed by the three original developers of the original SD card: Toshiba, Matsushita and SanDisk.
SanDisk claims the miniSD card offers significant savings in card area and volume, which are two critical design parameters as mobile phones are miniaturized. The miniSD card saves more than 40% of the printed circuit board over standard SD cards in less than 60% of the space. Windows SmartPhones use this memory format, and more miniaturized phones with multimedia features.
18. Danger Den nVidia Kit & MAG II-LE 12v Pump
The very first watercooling kit to ever be “Recommended by NVIDIA® for use with NVIDIA nForce® motherboards.” This is an official kit of NVIDIA and their commitment to the enthusiast market. As this program matures you will see new Danger Den Kits, Technology, Options, and Performance with the nForce brand of motherboards and other NVIDIA Products!
When I got the package I immediately noticed the quality just by its cover, when opening the box that again shows in the way DD packed everything (even without protective padding) I’d recon this package could take some beating. DD used their top-of-the-line products to fill this kit, which contains the following:
17. Call of Duty 2 Refines an Aging Formula
Call of Duty 2 mostly emulates the successful mold of its predecessor. Two years later, though, is more of the same enough to make a good game? To keep things fresh, Call of Duty 2 changes and adds key features while still bringing to life the experience of playing a small part in the larger, staggering conflict of World War II. It is a great game because it has taken every thing about its predecessor—graphics, AI, level design, etc.—and made them all a little better, but its ultimate impact is reduced because it has been done before.
As before, the game divides its single player campaign among three soldiers of different nationalities—Russian, British, and American—which allows it to tackle different fronts of the global conflict. You don’t strongly identify with the characters you play, but Call of Duty 2 isn’t worried about plot—the important thing is that World War II is on and there are Nazis that need slaying.
16. Scythe Katana Cu Heatsink
The PC air cooling market is getting some stiff competition from liquid cooling products.. Liquid cooling products are becoming more and more inexpensive while shrinking in size, which is giving air coolers a run for their money. Scythe began its operation and business in November of 2002 as is a distributor and manufacturer of PC parts & gaming devices for “DIY PC Experts!”. Scythe became recognized as the leading CPU cooler supplier in Japan’s Akihabara Electric Town. Due to popular demand, Scythe began exporting products all over the world shortly thereafter. Scythe USA began in Northern California, and moved to LA to work closer to and with the manufacturers to streamline logistics to better serve their US-based partners.
