Tricky Treat Tech News October 18, 2012


Today is the first day of the Halloween festivities for the World of Warcraft.  My son recently started playing and is very excited to start collecting “Tricky Treats” and getting a broom to ride around on.  This won’t be any news to those of you who are already on WoW, but just thought I would bring it up.

Additionally, we’re up into the wee hours tonight testing the new PC games that just came out.

Also, I’m building a new Home Theater PC rig using the latest XBMC, Ion motherboard and laptop hard drive for low power consumption (and noise factor).

Here’s the rest of the news!
