Why We're Making Changes to This Network Soon

Hey Geeks,

Chris set up this resource several years ago because Chris wanted to create an environment outside of WordPress where we might be able to connect with one another and share ideas.

Years later, Chris has discovered that countless pieces of copyrighted material had been lifted from across the Internet and planted on this site. This has created problems for our entire business model.

Plus, Ning decided to jack up the hosting rates to the point where Chris could…

Free but awsome tiny image editor

Free, tiny, fast stand alone (no installer -option 2, OR you can choose option 1 that has an installer) image/picture editor I found. Has a lot of functions for it's tiny size, including scans and saving as PDF and many other types of image formats. (w00t!) Make a folder where you want it to live, copy FreeVimager.exe there and run it from there. Make a shortcut to your Desktop or Start Menu if you want. If you wish to make it your default…

Opinion of some decently priced laptops (decent enough for Tera and Skyrim?)

I recently (about 6 months ago) got a HP Pavilion g6. 

I did not want anything super powerful at all, seeming as I mainly play Tera Rising, and Skyrim (I am fine with it being on low graphics)

However, never have I had such a terrible laptop before. It freezes constantly, overheats within 5 minutes of playing Tera. Generally just not the best, for anything really.



HP has agreed to give me a refund.

I ~was~ going to use that money to build myself a gaming PC; though I…

Completely Apple free, finally

I was using Apple's white aluminum keyboard on my PC for almost 3 years now because of the short throw chiclet keys and the solid aluminum frame. While its been reliable, it required Key Remapping for the PC because of Apple's unto themselves key character set structure (like everything else). 

I ran into a better one on NewEgg.com about a week ago, FOR the PC, all aluminum, white, chiclet keys, usb ports, etc. Right out of the box I noted the longer cord, as opposed to…

A Glimmer Of Hope In Trying Times

It was a cold winter morning. As I opened my eyes after a long night’s sleep, I realized that it was almost time to head towards my office. As I gazed into the bathroom mirror, I saw tiny tufts of hair peeping out from my sweatshirt’s hood. It was time to go for a haircut and a spa. But I did not have enough money to spare for a luxurious hair treatment. I decided to prepare a bowl of oats for my morning breakfast. I walked into the kitchen and opened the fridge to discover that there was no…

Mihai Pruna's favorite freeware CAE applications

3d Modeling:

FreeCad - even though it can seem clunky at first, I prefer it to Autodesk123D.

Meshing (3D)

GMSH: relatively easy to generate a volumetric mesh inside a surface or around it with another surface of primitive as a domain.

Read more about how I use these tools here:…
