Snow Day - Helpful PC/Other Tips

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
It's a snow day, I brought my laptop home from work and I'm multitasking on OCN with my personal system. I ran across a few things today that I think some of you will like. I've posted one of these before, but what the hell. It's a snow day and you should be playing games:

Remove Shortcut Arrows
Don't you hate these? They're huge. Make your desktop look pretty by following this tutorial.

Games that officially support the Xbox 360 Controller
Here you go. The list you've been dreaming of. Use these to find the games that 'officially' support the controller. Don't forget Recettear (it's not on the list).

Updated DirectX Runtimes
In case you're getting DirectX errors in your games, just download the most current runtimes.

PhysX
Since I posted the above, here's a link to update your PhysX drivers if you're getting Vantage errors.
Use this link to download the current runtimes if you're having DLL errors starting your games.

Need a new wallpaper?
Everyone has their one site they go to. I just changed my wallpaper from here. Fun days inside.

Want a Mac? Get a refurb! (I know, it has nothing to do with Windows)
In most cases, these aren't actually used. If the order's wrong, to the refurb shop it goes. I figured if you needed one for work, why not head over here? It's cheap(er).

Alright, back to work. Have fun today!

Want a Mac? Who in the blue hell would want a Mac?

Come on, they are over priced use crummy old hardware and are definitely not all that and a bag of chips, besides you have to buy MAC compatible software, meh!

When someone says Mac, all I can think of is the Corporate lock, where the consumer is locked into the "Mac Store".

Which more or less means Apple OWNS YOU!

There is nothing Savvy about Mac, in fact the only thing reputable about Apple is their profits, and that is sad..
