The Windows Problem Solving Community!
A german site with focus on computer news, maybe a bit slower than News.com in reporting news
but easier to read and not overloaded with graphics and in overall has more in-depth
Matrox Users Resource Centre
While entirely focused on Matrox' products, it is one of my daily visits still for one main
resource: from personal experience - and I have been using PCs for 10 years now - I know that
Matrox is a top choice for consumer level graphic cards when it comes to reliability both of
hardware and drivers and since most cards are on par in speed comparisons (3D cards excluded, yet)
this is the only thing which counts these days.
Tom's Hardware Guide
IMHO the most reliable source when it comes to reviews on new hardware - and not just gaming
tools, but PC hardware in general, down to the prozessor and motherboard level. If you want to
learn a bit about the internals of your gaming machine, use Tom's.
From personal experience I know ASUS to be a good choice for motherboards: the performance is very
good, the boards are stable and customer support knows what they are talking when you contact
them with problems and are no extension of the marketing apartment. A-Bit, A/Open and Iwill get
higher ratings occassionally on Tom's page, but are much harder to get when you don't want to
One of the best quality CD-ROMs I was able to test, and very good and fast for ripping audio
off CDs. Since one of my hobbies is MP3, this is a major factor in my buying decisions.
The only company I favour more than Plextor is TEAC.
Currently the best in price/quality/speed overall when it comes to IDE harddrives - but make sure you get 8MB cache ones.
Currently my choice for soundcards - their drivers aren't as "ugly" as Creative's.
If you need network cards, hubs and switches and are willing to pay a bit more for some additional
performance points, you should consider them in your buying decisions.
After having tested lots of the cheap range stuff, I am stuck with 3Ware now - it is simply no fun waiting days
offline for your Highpoint-controller to repair your raid array after a system failure. And when you have to backup
several hundred GB a month (yes, our archive is now THAT big) the best backup at affordable price is a raid5 hdd-array.
The Time Wastelands
Ran out of books and need a fast and cheap mailorder company since your local dealer can't get
the latest english and german books fast enough? While their SF & Fantasy apartment sure could
need some improvements they are damn cheap and fast in delivering the books if they have them in
The Darwin Awards
The stupidest ways to die...
My daily comic drug. See Dilbert in his daily fights with incompetent bosses, the marketing
department and women. If anyone can send me a Dogbert doll, I am in his debt for life.
The company which produces Battletech, Shadowrun and DSA - nuff said.
Richard Talsorian Games
While i like Shadowrun a lot, I find the background in their Cyberspace RPGs a bit lacking. Talsorians Cyperpunk RPG is more fascinating.
Steve Jackson Games
This is both a good resource for pen-and-paper RPGs and the best resource to find some really wicked
websites. If you are bored, go check there and you'll have a good laugh. Warning: dark humor required!
The missing Department
My chosen search engine, until one day I will meet a perfect one.
Are you looking for a particuliar game review, preview, demo, etc. and your favourite game sites
don't carry it? Then use a search engine, it will tell you exactly which sites carry the wanted
items for any game you choose.
Currently the best free counter I found on the net - the offered features (list of all referrers with
number of hits, hits per day/week/month, used browser, used screen resolution, used colourdepth,
used searchengine, etc.) weren't offered together on any other counter I have checked.
Fun stuff for pet lovers--teeshirts, totes, clocks, mugs and a few more surprises.
