  1. My New Build (Part 1)

    So after my last major upgrade (and my only upgrade) to my current Core 2 machine, I've decided it's finally time to move on. Not to AMD (for numerous and far too detailed reasons) but to a current Sandy Bridge E platform. Roughly compared to a Core 2 Quad Q9650 (even though my Q9550 is overclocked at 3.6 Ghz), the i7-2700k should give me a good 40% boost in some apps (mostly MT and dependent on CPU) and enough of a boost in games and general productivity to hopefully last me the next 4 years. ...

  5. Misogyny, Gaming, and Online Culture

    This from the Globe and Mail:

    A woman seeking to expose misogyny in video games has suffered a harsh lesson in the extent of Internet viciousness, as a campaign of harassment escalated to a Canadian man creating a game that let people batter an image of her face.

    Anita Sarkeesian, who blogs from California but was born near Toronto and identifies as Canadian-American, had her Wikipedia page locked after it was hacked repeatedly with profanity, lies and pornography.
