Logichaos is a blog site created by Neil Moore with the help of John Wolgamot. Here you will find guides for Windows and Windows based programs. Logichaos started out as a hobby many years ago and over time it has become my personal website where I submit and edit guides and video tutorials. I maintain a list of free programs for Windows called The Ultimate List of Free Programs for Windows.

Nexuiz is a new First Person Shooter (FPS) game coming out on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. I am a PC enthusiast, so any time I hear about a fast paced, twitch friendly FPS Arena game, I become really interested.

I've been a fan of Nexuiz since before they sold the rights to Illfonic to create this game. I can't say I've been 100% enthusiastic but it looks like it could be fun. They claim this is a competitive game designed for twitch shooters, but so much is unknown that it's hard to say whether Nexuiz truly fits that description.

In order for Nexuiz to earn the competitive badge, they need to have dedicated servers on the PC and allow custom fan made content at no extra expense. Illfonic is more than welcome to sell DLC, but if that's the only form of added content, then Nexuiz will forever be restricted to a casual description. Nexuiz is due for release on Feb. 29th, 2012 on Xbox 360 and later on the PC and PS3. My fingers are crossed.

 

I have released a new guide that shows you how to convert almost any video so that it can be played on the Playstation Vita. After scouring the internet for tutorials and finding only crap, I decided that I should do the internet a favor and create a real tutorial.

This guide shows you how to convert your videos to high quality MP4 files with H.264 video and AAC audio with the free program Xmedia Recode.

Logichaos now has a super sweet Minecraft server. If you're into Minecraft, come check it out.

I'm currently hosting a Minecraft server from my Core i7 PC with 8gigs of ram. I do not have any plans to take this server down except for the occasional manual backup (10-15 minutes downtime)... I do not plan on changing this world for a long time so don't worry about losing anything. :)

I'm located in USA (Illinois), so feel free to join my Survival server.

Server Rules

  • This is a no PVP Server, however, if you want to create a PVP area, just ask an admin. :-)
  • Build wherever you want, but please respect other players and build at least 50 blocks away from all other players.
  • Always chop down entire trees. Not doing so will displease the admins and likely get you removed from the server. This includes big trees.
  • This server accepts foul language and cussing. If you're easily offended, please leave.
  • Please act mature. Annoying brats will be removed!
  • If you want to prevent griefing, ask an admin to protect your area. Admins will not undo griefing.

I have finished another guide. It shows you how to create full backups of your OS (e.g. Windows XP, Vista, 7, etc) so that you can restore your computer at a later date from that backup file. It's a free program called EASEUS Todo Backup and it does what many commercial programs do, except for free. Todo Backup can even restore files from backups, which is a free feature that most commercial programs offer in their Pro version. In addition, it covers how to create a bootable rescue CD to restore your computer in case you can no longer access Windows. This truly is a gem of the internet. Check it out.

Thank you Rachel Maddow for drawing the connection. Without you, I would still be thinking this natural disaster is the first of its kind.

 
I've been hearing about this for the past couple of weeks now, but I didn't really know what happened or how it happened. This video explains it pretty well. It's still a mystery why it happened, but I have a feeling it has to do with neglect regarding the higher ups.

 

The title pretty much sums it up.  The popular first person puzzle game brought to you by Valve is now free.  Interestingly, the timing comes at the same time Steam overhauled their site to offer Mac games, one of which is Portal.  Why not install Steam and download Portal?  If you need motivation, check out this video.
