Wow! They had computers in 1997?! Are those, like, the huge room-sized ones that were in that old Disney movie, "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes," with Kurt Russell?

Java is not working after the latest update on chrome or IE. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing, put 64 bit version, still nothing.

Okay, i did some more reading and one of the things said they turned there firewall off for a min or two, and that did the trick, and even when they put it back on no more problems. I tried that and it worked, but only if it was off. After again zone alarm not updating as it says it's compatible with my vista 64, i'm just using the built in vista one. Is that good enough or should i be looking at a better free one?

I've not used Zone Alarm in years. I honestly didn't know it was still around. I'd say you can do without it as long as you're running some sort of antivirus and maybe the hosts file from the first post.

I upgraded the 120GB HDD in my old (2007) Macbook Pro for a 250GB SSD. I went from OS X 10.5 to 10.8 since I was in the upgrading mood.

I'm digging it. Since then I installed computing software Matlab. It seems I could do with a RAM upgrade as well -- I currently rock 2GB (2x 1GB) DDR2. With the next pay check I might upgrade to a 2x 2GB setup.

EDIT: I upgraded my 2x 1 GB 667 MHz set of RAM for 2x 2 GB 800 MHz of RAM. My laptop feels like it's been reborn!

I spent some time this summer building a decent gaming PC. Very interesting experience, took some time to work out all the bugs, and I really sucked at the wiring stuff.

Too bad my GTX680 will be obsolete by the time Witcher 3 comes out. sad

I really don't know if all these components work together. If there's no one here with technical knowledge about it, I think a hardware site or perhaps gaming forum would be a better choice. I only know a Dutch-language one. If you want, I could ask there.

Sounds good. Mods for Skyrim would be something cool to do. I only game on consoles, though, so I don't have that avenue to explore.

I'd never have the patience. I tend to buy based on cpu and move on from there...if it has crap around it I'll just piece it out, which I've always been willing to bet is far less of a time sink (like, none) than building the entire rig.

Anyway, good luck. Sad thing is, you'll easily have a more capable piece hardware than either of the two "next gen" (current gen) consoles. I miss the days when Sony/Microsoft would take a bath on hardware $$$.
