    Advice for building an Atom based router

    I know I'm a bit late to post here, but I just built a pfSense router with a mini-Atom box and it works great. The main improvement I noticed was with Steam downloads. Before they were unstable and now they are reliable. This box was cheap and it worked. I did replace the fan with something...

    Gabe Newell says Linux is the future of gaming, new hardware to come out

    True, but faster than the HL1. That went to PS2 3 years later. Edit: Also, at that time, not all PC shooters moved over to console, and if they did, it wasn't right away. That is a much more recent occurrence. HL2 required Steam registration and that was a big issue at the time, no one...

    Gabe Newell says Linux is the future of gaming, new hardware to come out

    I disagree. Valve previous moves don't indicate they are trying to fracture anything. They've spread to platforms instead of contracting. They've moved previous properties over to other platforms just to promote their existence on those platforms. I think that Valve wants you to run Steam no...

    Gabe Newell says Linux is the future of gaming, new hardware to come out

    That sounds like a problem you need to solve for other reasons, though. Home networks have had to continually advance to take advantage of different delivery methods, even in-home content streaming like your movies or DVR sharing. Your issue can be resolved but you'll probably have to...

    Gabe Newell says Linux is the future of gaming, new hardware to come out

    Valve is in a different situation here, though. The website refers to "in-home streaming". I don't think Valve is going to try and tackle streaming from Valve to you, but just your computer to your Steam box. Hopefully more of the nuts and bolts of it become available in 2 days.

    Gabe Newell says Linux is the future of gaming, new hardware to come out

    Valve isn't attempting to solve a problem, they are trying to grow a market. In their vision, companies would sell SteamOS boxes that would stream games from both Windows and OSX in addition to games that natively run on Linux. The HTPC options are a part of that effort, but with companies...

    Any PC Gaming Codes you Live By ?

    If a full priced game comes with day-one paid DLC, I will wait until the game is available for a discount at greater than the price of the DLC. I'm looking at you Mass Effect 3. I'm figuring $30 will be a good price.

    Four Weeks of Galaxy Give-Aways!

    I'm putting off buying Skyrim until it looks great on my computer. With a 570, I would upgrade the rest and be good to go!

    Dark Souls Will Eat Skyrim's Face @ IGN

    I can't wait for Skyrim, even though I will probably play it about 6 months after it comes out. Bethesda makes large scope games that are buggy. I'm playing through Oblivion with all of the DLC and the mods that enhance difficulty and upgrade the environment textures. It's great looking and...

    Another Suspected LulzSec Hacker Arrested

    It's a lot easier for the government to talk about what it does with individual law breakers. Commenting on potentially government sponsored hackers from a nation where there are delicate trade agreements and other political conflicts is another. Reporting every one of those cases to the...
