    For those who missed it or are not in the USA, you can watch the part where they mention TweakTown here:

    That's pretty cool - they show the front page of the guide too. Have to remember put my name in 100 Point BOLD font next time :laugh:

    Hope the guide is useful to people. I wrote it because I think there's a tendency among geeks to use complex-sounding words in forums, guides and reviews without ever spelling out what they mean in simple terms. Guides like this one try to spell out the basics so everyone is on the same page and doesn't feel like they're idiots for not knowing :)

    Ok, I really hate to do this, but I gotta say this.

    #1 Tweaktown rules, Cameron is awesome, and Koroush is an amazing Windows Tweaker.

    Now that thats out of the way, I must say that ScreenSavers, and Tech TV in general has really gone down the toilet. When TechTV first started up, it was owned by Ziff-Davis, and was very good. The ScreenSavers was one of my favorite shows, because they discussed stuff that really mattered. They always had hardware manufacturer reps and game developers on, talking about the latest and greatest hardware/software that really mattered to the hardcore computer enthusiasts.

    But oh how times have changed. Ever since they were bought out by whoever owns them now, it has really become a noob show, I hate to use the term, but its very dumbed down programming. I see 10 minute segments on music editing programs that are included in iMac packages. Im not dissing the Mac (it runs Hollywood, literally) but almost every hardware gamer has got an AMD/Intel system. No regular computer user is gonna spend his/her time watching a TV show about computers, they're probably out drinking with me. :) The truth is they are making programming for non-enthusiasts, while im sure only enthusiasts watch their show. I really dont want to watch TV programming on new toolbars I can download to customize my XP experience by adding a new clock. :)

    As you can tell, I feel kinda betrayed by TechTV. It used to be awesome, and then pretty much sold out to get some higher ratings. Im glad to see Tweaktown on semi-prime time TV, but Cameron man, I wouldnt get too buddy buddy with them, or you might just end up having "This is how to change your Time Zone" articles littering up the front page :) A word of caution from the Fatguy! :thumb:

    But anyway, awesome guide PersianImmortal, way to go! Dont let all the publicity go to your head, just get some head because of your publicity :devil:

    Peace.

    I've never actually watched an episode of techtv, but it can't be a total noob show. Anyone under that category wouldn't have a clue what to do with a Linux distro like P.H.L.A.K., which apparently aired tonight. Now that is a disto no 'noob' should ever have a hold of ;)

    Oh, and I think Paul Allen (Mr. Bill's old buddy) currently owns TechTV; at least that's what I've been told.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
