    Keep up the great work.
    Thanks.
    The recorded sessions usually make it to Ryan's Vimeo account: http://www.vimeo.com/pcper

    Not sure if that is actually what you're getting at, but it may work for you.

    Hei Guys (& Colleen), I tried searching the podcast pages for Malwarebytes Anti-Malware which was recommended by Allyn in PC Perspective Podcast #95 - 02/25/10 but got no result when searching your site. Is this a glip?

    Honestly malwarebytes is not that great IMO, it has problems removing a lot of spyware which I can say from person experience having dealt with this crap quite a bit on a day-to-day basis.

    Although antispyware/malware software quality tends to change every now and then, for the moment I would recommend going with super antispyware or the google pack version of spyware doctor. Both are free for non-commercial use; spyware doctor is super bloated and will slow older or weaker systems quite a bit. Super antispyware is a bit dumb in the GUI and search options department, but it does what it needs to do quite well.

    Hey Ryan
    I was watching your latest podcast today and couldn't help but laughing at Colleen's remark that"optical media is dead".
    Yes I can agree that media is moving slowly to a more online-streaming format but I can tell you that nothing will beat a blu-ray for sheer quality of viewing, games included.
    You see I was watching Lasse Pulkkinen's Youtube channel where he is comparing the Xbox 360 and PS3 Side by side and in one of his vids he talks about Blu-ray and it's benefits. He explains that online-streaming of HD Content in particular you can notice alot of compression artifacts in the video, and I believe tghis to be pretty true. Blu-ray's have far superior audio too with Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio and the video wuality won't be compromised or playback ,by your bandwidth, and that's another problem with streaming media, how your ISP can keep up with all the data.
    Blu-ray's also feature interactivity that streaming services usually don't and I personlly prefer a hard boxed copy of my games/films no matter how good digital versions are. I like the box and manual and safe in the knowledge I can play it whenever I want.
    Just a few pointers I wanted to highlight for you Ryan.
    Cheers

    Cool Re: PCPer Podcast #104

    Hey Ryan, et al.

    Love the podcast and TWICH. I was listening to podcast 104 on my way home when Colleen started going off about the Acer Ferrari. The reason Acer is making the Ferrari model is because Acer is a major sponsor of the Ferrari Formula 1 team as is AMD. The Formula 1 series is considered the epitome of high technology applied to autos and auto racing. The race cars are basically computers on 4 wheels that go over 200 miles per hour. There are many teams that use AMD chips and a like number that use Intel chips in the cars. In 2005 Acer brought out a model of laptop called the Ferrari 4000, which was the top of the line notebook at the time and had all the options available at the time, e.g. AMD Turion 64, ATI Radeon 200M chipset, etc. <http://www.notebookreview.com/default.asp?newsID=2476>. I own one and it is still a very capable laptop with Windows 7.
    Just thought you might want to know why the branding is what it is.

    Ciao!

    High End Storage Comparison: Quad-Velociraptors versus Dual-SSDs

    Why no raid-10 or raid-0 benchmark with the raptors? raid-5 is terrible for writes in a raid configuration. I'm from the "enterprise" of san knowledge and seeing you compare that raid-5 to raid-0 surprised me and made me wonder what I was missing??!? I'm new here and love the podcasts!!

    here is a great article on the comparison...

    i'd imagine no raid 0 for the spinning drives because mechanicals are more likely to fail?

    I hear ya but with R-10 I think the comparison would be a lot closer between spinning drives and ssd in write performance. I say retest!

    the controller can do R-10 according to this:

    Re: PCPer Podcast with new Enhanced version

    Just a bit of a complaint i suppose, but the video version of PCPer podcast really needs a pop out video option. Vimeo is great and all, but with only 2 choices for playback (in browser or full screen) you can't browse at the same time to research what you guys are talking about.

    Trivial i know, but it sure would be nice.

    Re: PCPer Podcast with new Enhanced version

    Yeah, that's the option i've been using, but i get quite a few going and accidentally close it sometimes (i know, my own mistake) when closing unused tabs.

    Not a biggie. Just something i thought i'd throw out there (really to suit my own taste/habits).
