Posted by 111 CommentsXtreamerAdmin on July 4, 2013 under Featured
I’m a bit of a computer nut, and I love tinkering with new hardware. It’s fun to get a new piece of equipment in, and see just how much of a difference it makes on your system. It’s also a lot of fun to see how far you can push it. If you want to maximize your performance, you can do something called overclocking, which makes the processor run faster than it was originally meant to. Thi... more.

Windows 8.1 preview
Posted by 148 CommentsXtreamerAdmin on under Featured

Most of us don’t ... more.

One of the best ways that kids learn is through emulation, which is why it is very important for parents not to mix things up with the mantra, “Do as I say, not as I do”, as that tends to confuse the little ones who are introduced to hypocrisy through the very same person(s) who are meant to shape their values and worldview in the right dir... more.
