  1. Gob said it's slowed down to a crawl. There's a reason why board software is updated on a regular basis, and it's not just features, it's security. The longer the spans of time between updates/development, the higher the likelihood that someone will find a exploit in the existing version(s). I would imagine that board software which you pay for would inherently have a high rate of development, in addition to more thorough updates.

  3. Not currently. I've been focusing on trying to get back here on a more consistent basis. But now that you mention it, it does make one's mind wander. ;D
  4. I run a COD4/BC2 clan with 50 members and a website with a forum. Being full admin, I can understand your concern (we run phpBB, though). I would say go for it. I'm sure that our current theme isn't a default theme, meaning you tinkered with it. Thus, there isn't any doubt in my mind if you were to tinker with something new that it wouldn't be great. I've come to like this board, but progress isn't a bad thing. It will lead to new features on the user-end, but also (and what we can't see, and I can tell you from going from 3.0.1 to 3.0.7-PL1 on our boards - the latest version for phpBB) on the

  9. Exactly. I just ordered the new SATA3 velociraptor (sold my SATA2). I was looking at both OCZ and Intel for SSD, but there were several issues. First of all, my board supports SATA3. There aren't SATA3 drives available for SSD, or if there are they are not widely available yet. Meaning I'm not using my board's capabilities, and obviously SSD will eventually go towards SATA3 - leaving me with a slower SSD. There's a lot of other issues (I made a pro's/con's list, lol), such as the write degrading issues on SSD. Also, the fact that there really isn't any long-term knowledge on how reliable they
  10. I would highly suggest a WD 1TB Black. Fastest 1TB spinning drive available, and relatively cheap. More importantly though, they are built on enterprise-class standards, which ensures higher build quality and they come with a 5yr warranty.
  11. There are applications that attempt to do sector repair, but take that with a grain of salt.. I'd recommend replacing the drive as soon as you back-up the data. Errors in both programs, including the Samsung one are all the indication you need.
  12. Very common hard drive failure is attributed to bad sectors on the drive, essentially portions of the platters that are unreadable. It seems that the errors that you're seeing are alluding to sector-related errors.. If you're having lag/data loss/random errors (common indications of bad sectors), I would replace the disk. Alternatively, for verification sake you could try running the Samsung test if those issues aren't as prominent (and as a double-checking mechanism). Best thing to do regardless is to trust your instinct, but more importantly - back-up your data ASAP. Samsung test can be loca
  13. It depends on drive, manufacturer, etc. The link posted about was for drive fitness test (DFT), which is a Hitachi test for Hitachi drives, not Western Digital. Here is the link for the WD test for in-Windows: http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=606&sid=3〈=en
  14. Buying a i7 930, 6GB DDR3 1333, and a X58 Gigabyte board. Will be replacing a Q9550, and 8GB DDR2 1066. Will also be picking up another 4870 1GB for Crossfire.
