    Onboard RAID - ICHR9

    Currently run vista x64 ... thinking about upgrading to Win7 though in a few months
  3. Howdy ppl Im looking at setting up a RAID array for storing movies etc. My M/B is capable of RAID 5 which is my preference (if you think i should go another option id love to hear why) as i need at least 4Gb storage and i would like the option to expand it in the future. However, my main concern with onboard RAID is that i had a mate who had one quite a few years ago (at least 5) and he ended up losing all of his data due to a faulty piece of DDR DRAM ... it corrupted his data as it was being transferred to the array and he lost it all. Is this still a potential issue with the onboard raid controller (ICHR9)? On another note ... can anyone recommend a reliable/cheapish raid card that can handle upto 6 HDD's in RAID 5 ... under $400 would be nice Cheers Dale

    30" Displays....

    I currently own a 26", certainly beats gaming on 22" But in no way does it compare to the time my room mate bought a $30k projector from canon home for a few weeks ... Now that was gaming ;)

  8. Gday atomicans, Got an issue here at work where we have a stack of old Wordperfect files (.wpc) that i would like to be able to search the text on, using the standard windows search (XP). The only way i know of doing this is by opening each individual file and then saving as a word document ... all well and good if you've only got a few files ... but seeing as i've got about 20,000 wpc files ... that aint an option I tried changing the extensions to .doc and then searching, but the text search in windows still wont recognise them .. i have to re-save them before it will search the text. Im not a prgrammer or anything but i was thinking that i might be able to do this with a macro? i've never created one so i was hoping i could get some advice as to whether it was doable before i try to attempt it Any additional help would also be greatly appreciated

  10. The Australian film and television industry has launched a major legal action against one of Australia's largest internet service providers for allegedly allowing its users to download pirated movies and TV shows. The action against iiNet was filed in the Federal Court today by Village Roadshow, Universal Pictures, Warner Bros, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures Entertainment, 20th Century Fox, Disney and the Seven Network. Mark White, iiNet's chief operating officer, said the company did not support piracy in any form but it could not disconnect customers just because the movie industry claimed they engaged in illegal downloading. Adrianne Pecotic, executive director of the Australian Federation Against Copyright Theft (AFACT), said the action followed a five-month investigation by the industry. "We identified thousands of infringements of copyright by iiNet's customers and we provided iiNet with about 18 separate notices of those infringements and, unfortunately, iiNet did not do anything to address that copyright infringement," she said. Pecotic said she would not rule out further action against other internet providers. But she was not interested in targeting individual downloaders at this stage. The companies are seeking a ruling that iiNet infringed copyright by failing to stop users from engaging in illegal file sharing over BitTorrent networks. They want an order forcing iiNet to prevent its customers from engaging in copyright infringement over its network. "I would expect, yes, we would go on to claim damages," Pecotic said. White said it was up to law enforcement and the courts to decide whether people were guilty of illegal downloading. "If these people have done something wrong then the authorities can act on it but really it's inappropriate for us to act on an allegation," he said. Chris Chard, managing director of Roadshow Entertainment, said that, as broadband speeds and internet penetration increased, more and more people were turning to piracy. "Village employs over 5000 Australians. We're active in the cinema business, in film distribution, in DVD distribution and we invest in film production, and piracy has the potential to significantly erode all of those businesses," he said. The action follows months of wrangling between the movie and music industries and ISPs over the lengths to which internet providers need to go to prevent illegal file sharing on their networks. The industry wants ISPs to agree to cut off services for those who repeatedly infringe copyright. However, internet providers have argued that the courts already provide adequate remedies for copyright holders and they should not be forced to police their users. "This is a very important test case for the internet industry in Australia," said Peter Coroneos, chief executive of the Internet Industry Association. "It will test the effect of the safe harbour provisions that were introduced with the US free trade agreement, which provides immunity for ISPs in certain circumstances such as transmission, hosting, caching and referencing activities." Coroneos said the IIA board will shortly convene to develop a response on the legal action against iiNet. But while the movie industry has now stepped up its aggression, the music industry has yet to take legal action against any internet providers over the issue. "The Australian music industry has consistently maintained that it would prefer to negotiate a code of conduct with ISPs on this issue," said Sabiene Heindl, general manager of the recording industry's anti-piracy arm, Music Industry Piracy Investigations (MIPI). Michael Speck, who between 2004 and 2006 ran the music industry's landmark case against KaZaA as the head of MIPI, said he believed legal precedents already established and the emergence of filtering technologies meant iiNet would lose the case. After leading the music industry to victory against KaZaA, Speck joined forces with one of the file sharing program's key proponents, Kevin Bermeister, to invent filtering technology designed to stamp out illegal file sharing. "Once it becomes apparent to everyone that the ISP's most significant traffic is illicit or that particular customers are significant infringing hubs then there can be no doubt that the ISP has an obligation to act," said Speck. The case will be back before the court on December 17.

    FPS games with plenty of vehicles?

    Anyone out there know any good FPS/War games that allow you to fly helicopters etc? Im still stuck on the BF2 (yea i know its gettin old, but there are still some good servers out there) and i was rather dissapointed with the multiplayer apspect of COD4 ... not to mention quake wars. So i though i'd ask some advice for forking out $100 or so for my next game? Basically i'm looking for a semi-realistic FPS/War game that has plenty of vehicles (in particular a selection of good attack helicopters) and large maps for online play.
  14. Gday atomicans, I figure now is a half decent time to upgrade the ol video card which is a Leadtek 8800GTS 320MB Overclocked. I was thinking of going for a GTX260 but im not sure if my system will provide a bottleneck to that GPU, as i dont have any PCIE2.0 slots. System config is shown in my sig, your thoughts please? I run everything at 1680 x 1050 and my main games that i play atm are COD4, TF2, Civ4 & BF2
