Tech Support?

Time to exit, stage left…

I have had an incredible time writing these blogs over the last couple of years. While I have never actually managed to get a good schedule down for writing them on a consistent basis, I always enjoyed getting some time set aside to do so. So it is with a heavy heart that I inform the regular readers of the TechTalk blog that as of now, there will be no longer be any updates to it for the foreseeable future. We will leave the page up though, for anyone who still has lingering questions about any of the “How-To” articles we have written, or just want to watch one of our videos again. So thank you all very much for just reading my (and my colleagues’) articles, it has been a pleasure.

Diablo 3 is Right Around the Corner

The year 2000 was a special year. I had just started college, got my first job, got my first car, oh, and I also obliterated the lord of Hell that year too. For the second time in fact. Diablo 2 consumed my life for a good year. Whether playing over my buddy’s LAN with him, or with a bunch of strangers over battle.net, the Lord of Lies, Diablo, never stood a chance against my mighty Barbarian, or my fierce Amazon. I am a huge sucker for traditional RPGs, but Diablo came along and blew the doors of any preconceived notion of what an RPG should be, and paved the way for many after (like World of Warcraft, Torchlight, Kingdoms of Amalur, Dungeon Siege, etc.) Now, after twelve long years, the wait is finally almost over. Diablo 3 will be released on 5/15/2012 to the masses. (If you have not pre-ordered your copy, you can certainly do so through the UC Davis TechHub.) In celebration of that, check out the opening cinematic right after the break. For once the gates open, it will take us all to beat the denizens back into their realm. See you online…

That guy way in the back? He was just looking for some diapers for his kid late at night. He picked the wrong night to run out...

I have been watching, listening, and reading all of the great after Thanksgiving sales that will be going on in the consumer electronics market. I have seen numerous amazingly priced items, too good to pass up, and yet I look at them with a cynical, cautious eye.

Being able to communicate effectively with your team can mean the difference between life and death. This is true in life…and this is especially true in the online arena. Being able to tell someone to get out of the fire or telling the tank that you pulled aggro on the boss (which can happen occasionally as a hunter) can mean a success instead of a wipe. (In case you can’t tell, the game I am talking about is World of Warcraft.) In the old days, I would have had to type everything in “raid chat”, hoping that the person it was directed to would see it, and on top of that, it would take precious seconds to even type my message/warning in the first place. Well, I now live a world that includes Ventrilo and the Logitech G330 Gaming Headset. Check out my take on this headset after the break.
