OK...

I'm sitting here with the April 2006 issue of CustomPC open in front of me to page 58 - that's where the review of the Belinea 102035W is, and looking at the mention of the WSGF.

They added an extra 's', so apparently we're the widescreengamingforums.com...

Aside from being a technically good panel, the Belinea also benefits from its widescreen aspect ratio. While not that many games appear to support 16:9 or 16:10 - Half-Life 2 is one of the few games that offer than option - a great many games can be converted without much work at all. The crew at www.widescreengamingforums.com maintains a comprehensive list of titles, and during testing we were able to get F.E.A.R and Need for Speed: Most Wanted to work quite happily at 1680x1050.


If you do want a copy of the mag, Ibrin, I can see if they still have some left when I pass that newsagent again?

Else everybody is like "huh, why doesn't this link work. Weird, maybe they have a bad server and the site is down." :shock:

Yes that´s what I thought too ctrlsteef. Some people will try without the s but not all average surfers looks at a link and try something else if it isn´t working.

1 - I'd love a copy
2 - I can't believe they messed it up
3 - Please, someone register with them and correct it. Maybe we'll get a "corrections" printing next month.
4 - Do you think it's worth it for me to register that domain, to point over?

4. Yes I do. For two reasons. For typos like this and so noone buys it and uses it to their advantage to lurk people to their site, advertising or whatever. If someone makes a site just like this on that domain with a lot of advertising it could discredit this site as they think they have come to the to the right place. For example gooogle.com googl.com gogle.com. A lot of companies buys the extra domains just to get rid of scams.

1) I'll pick another copy up. :)
2) Neither can I... :lol: but typos are easy enough to do...
3) I'll register this evening and do so...
4) I think it would be a good idea. As Bongo says, it minimises the problems with this sort of typo, and also with potential scammers...
