Star Citizen - Space Combat Sim

Posted by jwilson56 , 01 February 2016 · 1684 views

Now Playing is still running 24/7 with no problems. I spend my time traveling and when the weather is bad I spend my time flying in my simpit and other games. I am looking forward to Star Citizen. It looks amazing right now. When I set out to do a simpit after I retired and saw a demo of TrackIR the first thing I came across was Helios. After some re...

Rumors....

Posted by jwilson56 , 18 December 2013 · 1117 views

Pioneer SC-1222K is a winner

Posted by jwilson56 , 09 March 2013 · 1712 views

Well the Pioneer SC-1222K came early so I decided to swap it out. My initial thoughts Pros: 1)  The receiver runs cool to the touch even after a few hours of cranked up music and movies 2)  The Class D3  amplifiers are a clear winner for sound quality. My Polk Monitor 70's have never sounded so good. I was always less than impress...

Well this past few weeks I have purchased a new phone. The Droid Razr Maxx is a great phone and the screen is large enough to actually use Now Playing on. I have replaced my ELO touchscreens with the Kindle Fire as well as the Razr.

I have decided to get back into gaming. I built a new game PC to play BF3 and MOH Warfighter on and with the old one I...
