Yesterday, 12:39 AMHi,
Anybody wants to join Red Orchestra 2 : Rising Storm beta? The beta is a standalone so you don't need to own the actual Red Orchestra 2 game. All you need is Steam and a decent computer.
I'm only asking because I pre-ordered and I can give beta access to two friends.
31 March 2013 - 08:12 PMHi there,
I currently have an Xbox which will be pretty much useless with the release of the new one, which is expected to happen by the end of the year. I've always wanted to build myself a gaming PC and this looks like the perfect occasion. I am also hugely attracted to the often much lower prices for games, and the inexistant annual suscription. I will obviously keep my Macbook Pro for everything outside the world of gaming.
This is the first time ever that I will assemble an entire computer - my previous experience is restricted to changing RAM, etc. I have been reading a couple of articles and I have put together a parts list on PCPartPicker, which you can find here (outdated). What do you think? Anything that stands out as odd or wrong about this config?
- Budget: 800$
- Use: For gaming only.
- Storage: I don't particularily need a lot of it.
- Case: I don't care how it looks. As less pink ponies as possible, though.
- I already have a Windows 7 license, a monitor, a mouse and a keyboard.
It goes without saying (damnit) that I want the best performance for my budget.

26 March 2013 - 05:56 PMI was editing a couple of ebooks (in the epub format, which is basically a package of HTML and CSS files) when I started to wonder why I had the habit of replacing every instance of
<span class"bold">, obviously defining .bold in CSS. I guess I was thaught to do it this way, as I've always did but never stopped to wonder why.
I do know that a
<span>is only a marker for style while
<b>is semantic, meaning that his conveys a special meaning and will even affect how a screen reader work (what about SEO?), but I don't know much about the
<strong>tag. Is it just for styling? In other words, is it just a tag that people use because they expect the browser to make the text within it bold? Was it part of the HTML spec before HTML5? Same thing for
<b>, actually... I read somewhere that it isn't part of the HTML standard anymore.
The essence of my question is : what is the proper tag to use in order to make some text bold? Not just for style, but also because it's a part of the text that needs to be "highlighted".

As some of you may know, my MBP was sent in reparation. Before going to the Apple Store, I did a TimeMachine backup so I thought I was all good. However I realised that I forgot to create an actual SQL backup of my MySQL database. And now that I need a certain entry.
So, my question is, is there some way to retrieve a particular entry from a database without having a "real" SQL export? In other words, is it possible to find it by digging in the files?

Did anyone here ever had to reset their Mac's SMC?
I updated my Mountain Lion yesterday and my Macbook Pro has been crazy even since. Fans always at 6000rpm, keyboard backlight doesn't work, the OS doesn't recognize battery even though it says right under it that the battery is the curent power source.
A quick Googling pointed me to the SMC - System Management Controller - as being the problem. To reset it, one needs to hold SHIFT + CTRL + OPTION + power button and release them all the the same time. In lther words I followed exactly the steps in the Apple documentation : http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3964
However the problem persists. Something that I noticed is that there was no light at all on the power cable. Could it be related? As in, a defect power adaptor having caused the problem during the OS update? I used another cable and it worked fine (the light was green) though it didn't help when trying to reset the SMC again.
Basically I'm looking for any clue that could help me. I really need to fix this. At 6000rpm the fans are extremely loud and it must not be good for them to spin at such a high speed interminentely.
