Techonology / Your computer's specs
« on: February 07, 2011, 03:20:20 am »
Post your computer's specs here
F.A.Q.: Where can I see my specs? - There are a lot of ways, for example:

1) Press the "windows flag button" and "R" together, the Run option will pop up, type "dxdiag" (without quotes) in the box and click "ok". Agree with the next pop up.
2) START -> Right Click on "computer" -> properties
3) Download software like CPU-Z and GPU-Z

On a Mac that would be Apple icon (top left of screen) >About this Mac>More info (at bottom of box), I think...


OK, my laptop's specs are:

CPU: Intel Core2Duo T9600 (2x2.80GHz)
GFX:  nVidia GeForce 9800M GS (I sometimes overclock it aswell), 1GB to 2GB shared GDDR3
Screen: 15" max resolution: 1680x1050
OS: Windows Vista Ultimate 32bit (I also have Win7, but too lazy to install it) Windows 7 Ultimate 32bits
Audio: Realtek HD audio

Like MASS EFFECT games? This is your place to be! ;)

Mass Effect is an action role-playing game developed by BioWare (2007-2008). The game takes place in the year 2183, with the player, assuming the role of an elite human soldier named Commander Shepard, setting out to explore the Galaxy on a starship, the SSV Normandy. The titular mass effect is a form of inertia-suppressing technology, allowing faster-than-light travel.

Mass Effect is set in the year 2183 AD. Thirty-five years prior, humankind discovered a cache of technology on Mars, supposedly built by a technologically advanced but long-extinct race called the Protheans. Studying and adapting this technology, humanity has managed to break free of the solar system and has established numerous colonies and encountered various extraterrestrial species within the Milky Way galaxy. Utilising alien artifacts known as Mass Relays, the various space-faring races are able to travel instantly across vast stretches of the galaxy. Within the game, humanity has formed the Human Systems Alliance, one of many independent bodies that make up the collective of "Citadel space".

The Human Systems Alliance is a rising power in the galactic stage. The only war they have participated in was the "First Contact War" in 2157. A human exploration expedition was activating dormant mass relays (which was a practice considered unsafe by citadel races). The Turians attacked the small fleet and proceeded to capture the closest human world, Shanxi. The Turians proceeded to starve out the remaining humans and occupy the planet. Facing starvation the human garrison surrendered to the Turian Hierarchy. One month later, the human Second Fleet responded by annihilating the Turian fleet around Shanxi. In response the Turians prepared for full scale war. The citadel council saw that humanity would either be annihilated or annexed by the Turians and stepped in. The humans were then given an embassy in the Citadel Council.

Citadel space, as a whole, is ruled by a body of government known as the Council, which is made up of members of the three prominent alien races: the Asari, a race of mono-gendered aliens which closely resemble blue-skinned human females; the short-lived Salarians; and the raptor-like Turians. Other alien species seen in the game include the reptilian Krogan, the four-eyed, humanoid Batarians, the aquatic Hanar, and the methodical and quadrupedal Elcor, and the environmental-suited Quarians and Volus. Dozens of other aliens are asserted to exist throughout the galaxy, but are not seen or mentioned in the game.

The game takes place primarily in two locations: the prototype frigate SSV Normandy, and the Citadel, a gigantic, ancient space station purportedly built by the Protheans and which currently acts as the centre of galactic civilisation. Throughout the game, however, the player may navigate the Normandy to various planets, moons and other destinations.

Techonology / Netbook Vs Tablet Which one is better?
« on: January 17, 2011, 03:12:54 am »

Netbooks are basically light-weight compact notebooks, they are designed for the basic computing and for surfing the internet. Light weight and small size makes it easy to carry. However, people might not get satisfied with the screen size and low level configuration.

What are tablet computers? Introduction to tablet computers -

A tablet is a compact sized electronic device which offers similar features as of a computer or a laptop. The tablets are touch-screens and are designed for surfing the internet.

Netbooks and Tablets both are similar in some aspects, yet they are a lot more different.

Comparison -

Most of the netbooks are based on windows, whereas tablets usually run on Android OS.

Tablet PCs usually offers a touch-screen interface to the user. There are touch-screen netbooks out there, but the Netbooks are known for offering a similar interface as that of a laptop.

Price of a netbook is lower when compared to a tablet pc, the reason for this thing could be the manufacturing cost. Tablet PCs are a hot gadget these days, they are in demand and they were released lately, these could be a few more reasons which adds up to the difference of the price.

Which one is better?

I guess different people will have different opinions.

Tablet PC can be a good choice for people who need a lot of portability and who like to own a fast and responsive gadget which could be operated easily with a finger-touch.

However Netbooks will be a great choice for people who want a durable mini laptop and who need a keyboard for doing most of the work.

So, which one do you like and why?

Techonology / 10 Facts About Android vs. Apple
« on: January 15, 2011, 08:45:30 am »

1.New memory storage could entice Apple fans over to Android.2.Apple users may be more likely to buy apps.3.Android outsells Apple in one out of 6 U.S. states. There are eight states where Android may be a bigger seller but unfortunately they are the lower-population states in this country.

A recent survey revealed that the majority of Android users are men. Actually, the majority of all smartphone users are men, but in the case of iPhone the difference is slight, 57% are men. With Android 73% are men.

5.Advertisers are more interested in Android. 6.You have many more handset options with Android.7.Apple fans are slightly more loyal to the brand. More than 90% of iPhone users love the phone enough to recommend it to others. Android fans are also brand-loyal but slightly less so with only about 84% of them recommending the phone to others.

8.Doubletwist is the best option to compete with iTunes. One of the main reasons that a user might prefer an iPhone to an Android phone is because of its direct access to the extensive iTunes media library. However, you do have options on Android phones as well; Doubletwist is a preferred option for some Android users.

9.Both brands are popular but Android is gaining ground faster.

Broken Videos / FAQ: About Broken Videos (Updated Aug 27)
« on: May 11, 2010, 05:03:35 am »

Q:"Why Do I see many broken videos or error messages inside the video boxes?"

A: As you may or may not know, the anime videos are not being stored on this website's server.
  They are uploaded on different Video Hosts such as Megavideo, zShare, uFliq, CinShare, MySpace, etc..     
  and stored on their server(-s).

And as you know, nothing lasts forever. So let's put it like this, once the anime episode/video is uploaded on a Video Host, it has a limit to stay there.

As long as the video is being watched frequently, it won't be removed from their server(-s).
If the video is not being watched during a certain period of time - take zShare for example, their limit is 60 days - they remove it.

There are thousands of anime episode videos embed on the website and since there is no way to track each broken video automatically and fix it instantly, 1 or 2 people can't do that manually. That's why there is a "report broken video" button under each video box.

If you see a broken episode, please, care to report it here (on the forum) so that it would be fixed as soon as possible.

Another way to prevent broken videos is to post "Mirror" links (extra links/embed codes to a video/anime episode, that don't belong to other anime sites).

It looks like Cinshare deletes the animes, none of Cinshare videos works for me. It always says "Video not Found".
