This week on the forums a lot of handy advice was generated from a hard disk that went bad.  Just about every step you can take before finally formatting appears, so check it out.  Another user is having difficulty with getting a network of 34 PCs to stream video from a server.  If you are in the mood for a new Anti-virus program, there is advice on alternatives to AVG.  Grounding and static electricity are important and you don’t hear people talking about it much, but don’t be afraid to ask.  There is also a lot of buzz about Vista not supporting EAX, and questions about the death of D3D.  As always, your trip is not complete until you head to the Trading Post, there are a lot of people upgrading over the holidays, which means a lot of great kit for cheap!
