Ok, this is mostly:

(you can skip this and get to the point below)
Except the fact that we all deal with fans in our computers and usually fans in our houses and cars too. So, in this wonderfull P.O.C. trailer we live in, the first time we got flooded out we took all the carpets out and just used linoleum. This close to the river the dirt we usually get is actually super fine river silt and will destroy a stout carpet within a year or so. I do most of the cleaning, Mindy just can't with her Fibromyalgia, so, now that we're moving I decided to get a vacuum cleaner. I'm a member of Comsumer reports and I'm highly into not having to buy a machine every few years. The 2 machines that have the highest reliability are the Dyson (any model) and the Rainbow. The Rainbow coming in at a base price of over $1200- and having one before, dealing with the water and all the gross junk that dumps out with it. So, I got a Dyson, this one: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Dyson+-+...40537&st=dyson dc23&cp=1&lp=1
Super Vacuum, I'm not messing around when a lesser Vac pops a belt, needs a bag change or something of the sort.

(here's the Beef!)
So, the point, fans. While I was popping around the Dyson site I saw this amazing thing, a fan with no blades: http://www.dyson.com/fans/
Whaaaaaa???
Now I gotta admit $329- for a 12" table fan is out of the question but in the advancement of Science this is a pretty amazing step!

Hey Bri. I was in cleaning for over 17 years and I used alot of Vacuums.. My favorite was the Oreck Professional.



This vac would last me over a year with commercial and Household use @ 3 to 4 homes a day 4 days a week.

It was close to 1200 hrs. before it needed Maintanance except for the beater bar. That was after 400 hrs. and for me 8 lbs. was the clincher.. No heavy lifting. About the same as my M-16 fully loaded with a 30 round clip.

229.00 to 289.00

I Love G-Skill ram for about 3 years. I bought some High dollar OCZ reaper's 800mhz. over clocked to 1132 or something around there. But Corsair, I hear, is the best around.

Yeah, this all started with Costco having Vacuums, then went to Consumer Reports, then back to Costco. A lady saw me looking and said she has 2 Orecks and thinks they're the best. CR puts them at an 8 on the reliability scale Dyson got a 5, smaller being better. Can't rely on thier ratings though because one of thier top rated vacuums, Hoover is at the bottom of thier list for reliability. So how can an item be the best of the bunch but stinks for reliablity? How should I know??

PC World did the same thing, they rated HP as having the best desktop systems available but on the reliabilty and D.O.A., they come in as the worst. Me thinks these guys have to work on thier systems.

I got the Dyson after talking to 3 different company reps, Oreck, Hoover, Kenmore, then checking the customer ratings at a few retailer sites. Dyson has a 5 year warranty, the others vary. The Hoover rep told me they ripped off Dysons design to get thier cyclone technology! What convinced me was the number of people who gave the Dyson (just the model I got), 5 stars, all over the place, the others rarely got 5 stars. I made up my mind when a woman posted she was 55 Y.O. and she's had an Oreck, a Kenmore, then a Hoover all in 3 years, then she got a Dyson Cannister and has had it with no problems for 3 years. Yeah, the Dyson is not light, something like 32 lbs, the Oreck is one of the lightest there is.

Yeah E, but what about those fans!! I can imagine a day when we never have to clean stupid fan blades anymore! Wheeeee!!

Speaking of Enigma, has anyone tried to put a comment in when you give him rep?? Does he have so much that we can't comment any more?

Hello! I have a scout!
Is there anyway to stop this anoying whirley sound from the side fan, I have found a tempoary solution by covering the fan from outside the side window with a peice of muslim cloth which is stopping the whirley whiney sound. It aint pretty but it works.

Another query, how would I go about getting new hdd tooless clip thingies, i have lost them all and are looking to buy new hdd's.

The only permanent solution I know of is to cut out a new window without the slits. =/ Unfortunately, those slits cause a lot of turbulence.

Your Ram sticks. I have the exact same ones for Mindy's Scout and had a hell of a time getting them set to thier rated speed. I had to treat them as if they were being O/C'ed, also found out that if the XMP profile is checked in the bios it will cause problems too. So what's the point of having XMP ram??
So they run hot now, I asked Corsair and they said don't worry about it, they're still covered under warranty. Nice pic for the front page!!
I'm still here



My old Corsair ram sticks enver had this problem. i had 4x1gb of the older style purple ones, they overclocked nice to 900mhz on stock volts. I did have to up the voltage because four sticks + overclocking + unlinked mode puts massive stress on the memory controller... hence i got 2x2gb.

I'm not too worried about the soundcard and the gpu together, except I've heard that it sometimes causes interference? not too sure.

I need a better camera, the sony cyber shot (dsc-s700) is showing it's age now... my bro's Kodak is a piece of crap though... if there's minimal light and no flash it's fall grainy even when resized.

Here's the link for the HDD rails, clips, whatever you call them, here they are: http://cmstore.coolermaster-usa.com/...roducts_id=293

Yeah, the fan grill is annoying, you can get quieter fans, NB (Noise Blockers), Gentle Typhoons come in 3 speeds and there's always the Noctua's but they are kinda ugly. Nylon stockings also work, just stretch them over the fan before mounting it.


@ Y'all. Anyone know anything about home inventory software. I need something that lets you enter pictures, serial & model numbers, price, date purchased, description, stuff like that. I found a free one but it's very limited and you have to store it online. Not wanting to put my Complete Home Inventory where someone can hack into it.
