Welcome to Tweaks & Reviews 

  There are many fine products that could be great if not for some little annoyance or something that just doesn't work as well as it could. Here we'll find simple ways to fine tune the products to enhance their  performance. We'll try to keep the enhancements as simple as possible so that anyone with a few hand tools can perform them. If a product has been fine tuned, the review will be done after the product has been modified. The fine tuning guides and overviews may specify technical information to enhance the article, but the reviews will be based on everyday experience. So a video card review, for example, won't have specs on polygons or fill rates, but it may give the frame rates achieved in a game. If it can be reliably overclocked, it will be tested that way. If there are 2 or more similar products that have been popular or highly rated, a shoot-out type of review will be done to try to determine which one is best.

Most of the How-To articles have captions when you put the cursor over the pictures. I like to use a lot of pictures in these articles but am always afraid the pages will take too long to load. It's hard for me to judge because I'm on cable modem. So the picture quality is a trade off between  speed and resolution.

My first win against the AI drivers in GPL. I won 6 out of 8 races that night.

I won the race and forgot how to snap the picture, so I had to race 2 more times to get another win just to capture this screen.

    The camcorder page has updated sound clips for the mics I'm testing. Nady Systems has sent me a CM-2S stereo mic for a review I'll be writing shortly. After some preliminary testing, this mic looks promising.

    I've added a couple more articles. One of them has been done for a year, but not published. It's a tutorial on how to program RBJoy for Doom3 for joystick and trackball support. It'll walk you through it and once you've got it figured out, you can make a template for most games. With RBJoy, I even added a slow walk feature that's not in the game. If you're still playing First Person Shooters with a mouse and keyboard, you don't know what you're missing. To find the article, look under MISC. then Doom3.


    The second article is in the Audio/Video section and it's about some hand made camcorder accessories. (LCD hood, microphone shock mount and windscreen.) I expect this article to continue growing, so it may never be completely finished.
