Hi there. Let me take a minute to introduce myself. I'm Uncle Bob, a Mod here at PC Perspective. We will be running a series of articles within the forum that will be called Mod Interviews. I ask revealing, embarrassing, stupid, probing questions of Mods and hopefully you get to laugh with us at ourselves and in the process get to know some of us better. Beware, not all the Mods are as forthcoming as you may like, I do my best to uncover the truth, but haven't always hit the mark!


Well, after 3 days in a jury box, I got a day off. So, we are a day late, but not anything short.

It's going to be a busy Sunday for me, so I'm posting this on Saturday! You guys are really in luck we have a real special interview, too! This was conducted just days before Ned became (I was told he volunteered, but who really knows?) a Super Moderator. We've been told his pay actually doubled....man, the big fat goose egg on the check looks twice as big now. We all like to have fun where we can and are all glad to have Ned to poke at for awhile.

Another Vista Rant

If you are interested in another view of how a new user's experiences (mine!) with Windows Vista are going, you'll want to head over to my latest blog entry to see how it's all going...

Today though, is when I finally got fed up with the whole damn thing.  I have several printers, most of which I have been able to get to work, even with Windows XP drivers.  However, one of them is attached to a Linksys W

I have been running Windows Vista on my personal system now since about January 28th - just a couple of days before official launch.  I just so happen to have my system die on me (don't get me started on that...) so I figured the timing was good and I would just move to the new operating system and save myself the trouble of upgrading later.

Morning all! Well, it's the day before the last real fix for football junkies. I won't go out on any limb and guess who will win. Our Seahawks didn't make the show but I'll watch anyway! Actually I'll be at work, but we'll make sure we have time set aside to watch the greatest sports event of the year. So, grab some cold ones, some munchies and good friends and get yourself ready for a real spectacle. I ain't talking about the purported halftime activities, either, btw....personally I could do without all that!

Preparing for CES

Believe it not, this year's CES is actually shaping up to be quite a busy one for me.  Not because of some elaborate launch plans from NVIDIA, AMD or Intel, but mostly because of the alarmingly high amount of meetings that I have setup for a three day time span.  Currently I am 28 -- that's nearly 10 a day and considering all the issues involved with getting around the city of Las Vegas in a timely fashion, I have a feeling I am going to be doing quite a bit of sprinting.

As I sit here this morning, there are numerous people in my kitchen preparing a huge meal just for me...okay, for the rest of the family too, but I get to eat some of it!  I am definitely looking forward to a day a sitting on my butt and doing nothing but watching football on the big screen and maybe taking a drive in the car with the windows down and the heat on high. 


Now that doesn't mean we are taking the WHOLE weekend off here at PC Perspective; in fact we have lots of stuff to do on Black Friday besides going shopping ta 5am; hopefully none of you are doing that anyw

As it turned out, this was an even crazier weekend with the console releases than I had thought.  PS3 caused shootings and fights, while the Nintendo Wii seemed to in just as high demand, with slightly higher availability.  One thing that did irk me though was that EBGames (Gamestop), where I preordered my Wii, didn't have the extra controllers, classic controllers, component cables or even the copy of Zelda I had ordered!  They apparently only got 3 copies in of Zelda, though they had preordered more than a dozen.  So I headed over to the Toys R Us across the street and

I am currently sitting in my hotel room, several blocks from the San Francisco convention center (Moscone), awaiting the beginnings of the Fall 2006 Intel Developer Forum.  What can you expect here?  Two words: quad core.  Yep, its going to be every where; in fact I already saw it last night and a pre-IDF press meeting.  There they showed off a Kentsfield core processor and a new quad-threaded gaming engine created by Futuremark call "Ice Storm Fighters".  Hopefully they come

Thats right! The time to upgrade the PCPer.com forums has finally arrived. After more than a year of develpment, we are finally ready to go forward with our upgrade. With this upgrade comes a brand new server that will serve the forums to you. You can expect an editorial from Ryan at some point detailing the new server, the hardware and software being used, etc... so be on the lookout for that!


Quoted from our forum announcement:


As most of you know...we have been hinting at upgrading the pcper forums for quite some time.

Just a heads up, the PC Perspective forums are going down here in about 15 minutes; though they should only be down for 15 minutes or so total, I thought I'd put a notice on the front page for anyone that find the forums dead!  Sorry for the inconvenience!

Today is one of those rare days in my life where I have to sit back and relax for a long while and just think.  It has been five years since that fateful day we now know simply as "9/11" and too many, the thougths of the day are still ripe in our minds.  I am one of those people; not because I lost a loved one in the event or lived in NY or anything like that, but just because I am usually one of the most patriotic people I am around.  The attacks made me angry, MAKE me angry, and all the constant bi
