I'm a pretty tech-litrate/obsessed guy, and i like to help people out, so Y!A seems the perfect place to bring them together. Genreally I'm in the PC section n Video Games section, more prominently in the Playstation section. I'm studying Digital SFX at University, with a back ground in multimedia n Graphics. I'm from UK, so i buy stuff with £'s n wear pant's under my trousers. I also have a combo of dark and British humour, which may appear in my answers, but it may make some folks giggle, which is good. I personally own a PC, PS3 and 360, with PS3's, PS2, 360's n Wii's distributed through our house (were all gamers, so lucky :D) I like RPG's, RTS, Action and a few casual games. I dont tend to play FPS's, but I like TF2 n Timesplitters, to give an indiction of the type of shooters I like. I'm open to emails if you have further questions, if i cant answer i ussally point to a site that can. I have a PSN ID, but youll have to request it, and im not always online. (read paragrpah 3)

  • Good DS RPG's(or other's)?

    I've recently got a DS on long term loan and want a few pointers for good games. currently i have Mario n Prof Layton

    I really like the Final Fantasy series, but only want on of REvenant wings, III n IV, which is best?

    Also gonna pick up Pkmn: Pearl/Diamond, relive child hood memories.

    Any other suggestions for games to pick up, they don't need to be new ( getting old cheap pre-owned games is preferable), I'm not exactly wanting stuff like Brain Training, cooking Mama or shovelware, but any hidden Gems with trying I would be grateful.

  • Anyone know of a good formatting tool for 1TB external harddrive?

    MY mate got himself a 1TB external desktop hardrive (Seagate Freeagent Pro if that helps)

    It's currently in NTFS, and he need's it in Fat32 cos currently it'll only work in his laptop which makes it a bit useless to him.

    Ive used CompuApp's Swiss Knife normally, but this only gives the option to format it in NTFS. I've been able to format external hardrives before(largest was 250GB) to Fat32 with this program so is it something to do with it being 1TB? if so does anyone know of a way to format a 1TB drive to Fat32?

    Our only current plan is if it's the size of the drive we we're gonna partition it first, but don't know if this is a good idea on external drives. Also will 360's n PS3's see partitioned drives?

  • How would it affect you if Google vanished?

    How would it affect your normal day to day activities if Google was to suddenly disappear? Error 404 on anything Google, including stuff like Youtube, Blogger, n all other stuff like Google New's, maps, mail, etc?

    Just curious on how much people depend on the internet giant, whether they know it or not.

  • Why are 3D Renderers slower than 3D games?

    Why does it take 10 seconds to render out a PAL image of maybe 100 poly's on 3D Max, XSI etc when my PC can also run Crysis , running a few million poly's at 20fps?

    Any tech differences between how each of them work, or are the reneder's included in 3D packages really crap?

  • Falout 3 - better on PC or PS3?

    I'm planning on getting Fallout 3 at some point, but I'm wondering which platform it would be better on?

    My PC is spec'd for gaming, so that won't be an issue.

    SO i'm wondering if the interface is more orientated to console gaming, if there's gonna be a ton of mod's on the PC like there was for oblivion, and which one runs better graphicallly.

    Price wise I can get PC for £25 or PS3 for £37,so that's a factor too.

    just any opinions, any reviews comparing them etc?

    p.s before anyone even opens there mouths I have a 360, but its on its last legs, I had to borrow a different 360 to finish playing Fable 2, So I'm not gonna buy any new games for it in case they don't work too.

  • What would the husband of a Female President be called?

    I'm just wondering if there is any official name for the husband of a female President.

    Lord would be the male equivalent of Lady, but I'm not sure if First Lord would work, or even First Man.

    So any idea what the official term would be, or if there isn't one any ideas for what it could be?

  • How do you stop Youtube videos loading?

    I follow a few blogs, and usually they will have a few youtube videos on. Sometiems I'll watch them, but if i stop after a while cos the video was crap it will still carry on downloading like a 5 minute clip.

    My internet speed is a really random so sometimes it will go really slow, so loading a youtube clip just kills the internet, so is there a way that i can completly stop it continuing to load while i read the rest of the blog (and atempt to watch other videos on it) or browse on other tabs. may some task manager for internet usage.

    I have Firefox, in case theres a handy add-on that can do this.

  • Can you remeber name of this '90s Time-Travel sci-fi?

    There was a show in the 90's where a secret gov't agaency sent this guy back in time 7-day's so he could stop disasters from happening.

    The pilot had him go back to stop a bomb going off next to Whitehouse.

    The TimeMachine was a sort of hexagonal sphere shaped thing, he had a joystick to keep it allgined, if he was off by a bit he could end up in middle of nowhere (only got it perfect once)

    If you can throw any ideas of the name of the show it would be great, thx's.

  • Swapping Windows on Dual-Screen?

    I have a daul screen set-up, however the second monitor is my TV.

    This means that if I watch a bit of TV, or play PS3, then the screen is no longer usable as a PC monitor. So if i need to use any programs that open up on the second screen i need to swithc through channels to PC or put PC back into sing[le screen mode.

    I'm wondering if theres any quick mode or prgram where i cna swap a program from one screen to the other, maybe something that means i cnaright click on the taskbar and move the window form screen 2 to screen 1?
