    Anyone still playing DayZ

    i have been playing the game non stop for about 2 months. with a round or 2 of BF3 or CoD inbetween deaths to calm the nerves. the good thing about dayz and arma 2 is that when it comes to pvp its mostly about skill and patience unlike CoD. i mostly play on the AvA servers. and yesterday the best thing happen. the sever had just restarted and i spawned back in at the south citys of panthera and as i went over a hill 3 crashed heli's spawned in a row from my line of sight about 800 - 1000km apart. so i went alooting and picked up a dmr at the first heli then there was a lmg and fn fals at the other 2. but how the helis spawn i was able to get on a nice sniping hill 700m away from 2 of them. so the waiting game began. after about 30mins a few guys showed up and killed each other didnt take any shots as one had a akm and the other a lee enfield so figured they could sort them selves out as i think they were recent spawns then came along a guy with a m4 cco or acog so i took him out. but then no one came for awhile. so i waited a bit then decided to alt tab and check my e-mails and what not for a few mins then went back in and i hear someone drinking close by so i look around and there's a freaking gillied sniper with a m107. about 15m next to me. shitting my pants royaly i line up a head shot with the dmr and shoot. turns out it was one of the clan members of the server. so my heart starts racing thinking there could be more in the area. start looking around. soon realize theres no one around and loot the body and away i go on my merry way. well thats my little story of why dayz is one of the best games i have played. i have never played a game that actully gets my heart pounding as if i was in a real gun fight

    Stupid things you forget when building a pc

    my most annoy thing i forgot to do was. when i was on a very striked dead line to replace a dc jack on a hp dv7 laptop which is connected to a cable about 15cm long and getting the case and mb all back together at 3 in the morning to find out that the cable had slipped out of its run and blocked off the dvd drive bay (the very last thing i needed to do) then having to strip it all the way down to the mb removed to fix it completed 5 that morning and had work at 8 that day. that was one shitty day at work

    PC Case Gear

    edit: you answered my question in the above post pccasegear are by far the best i have dealt with i normally get a e-mail back regarding my query in about 2 - 3 hours (thats quicker than "calling" telstra) on average i make an order once a month and if i get up early enough i get it the next day if e-mailing is becoming to much of a hassle call them edit 2: by any chance are you in qld if so they stopped shipping there for a few days around the time of your order it could have been over looked or missing paper work

    A/V switch

    you can get av switches with remotes. harvey norman and the likes should have them if not they should be able to get them in as for the composite to hdmi there are adapters but they go for around $100 each. your best option would be get a cheapish denon or yamaha amp and speaker pack. that will solve both problems as well as give you surround sound but they are still expensive Edit: by any chance do you have on of the new sharps quattron
  13. could be your main bios has got corrupted or died and the back-up one has kicked in (for once) which would explain the revert back to a different bios revision your only option is installing a supported cpu of that revision and then updating like uberpenguin suggested
