  1. No, if it's $20 retail it's crap. Worse than crap. Monkeys could use an etch and sketch to draw frames faster.
  2. Eh, no. CyberPowerPC is okay. I'm not sure about getting the most bang for your buck, but when it comes down to performance you can't have Asus on a list and not even mention Falcon NW or OriginPC.
  3. Be more hipster. Microsoft dropped their Zune line, it wasn't profitable enough.
  4. All of the fairy tales I know of are older ones. Pretty much you have knights, princes, kings, commoners, and sometimes elves or trolls (rarely). I vaguely remember reading a story about some tiny little person, but pretty sure it was just a small human. I have to say, for all the fairy tales I've read, I'm at quite a loss here. Unless you want to grab something from Disney.
  5. They're correct: yotta is as high as it goes; there is no SI prefix for an octillion or octillionth (nor any need, really). Peta is indeed the next step up from tera (you'll often read about super computers showing off muscle measured in petaflops).
  6. Obligatory. She wants to be friends for your stash of oreos. I used to have one. Now I don't :(
  7. I'm not confrontational without reason, I call out erroneous statements that are purporting bad information as advice -- especially when it matters. I never purport to be right about everything, I've been proven wrong many times. I'm not afraid of being wrong and I encourage people to show me my errors. I do not believe I have made such an error in this thread. I've done plenty of research on windows 8 reviews on critics and the only real complaint is the steep learning curve of the metro UI (at least compared to the old start bar). But the consensus was that the UI was better after one had learned it.
  8. Memory leaks are an application problem, not a Windows one. The GUI is not a resource hog, and has consistently shown to outperform windows 7 on every occasion. A company trying to sell a product? no wai Stick with 7 if you wish, but know it isn't superior to 8.
  9. Kay. Be as ignorant as you like then. There's nothing wrong with W8, don't let these guys fool you who are just touting what they think is hip to say. Run in Compatibility mode and you should do just fine.
  10. Run in compatibility mode for windows 7.
  11. even at 50% cost, the rig isn't worth that much
  12. Basically never != never. The statistical likelihood is amazingly slim. This guy is prancing around saying he has cardiac sarcoma and had to get a mechanical (read: properly called artificial) heart. He's the one who is joking about it.
  13. Yes, and that sucks, but the five year cancer survivor rate is 83% for teens. Which is pretty terrific. This kid is coming out and saying that not only he has cancer, but his entire heart was removed, replaced with a mechanical one, because apparently his doctor's figured that was less risky than giving him chemotherapy. In the unlikely event that this is all true, well, maybe it is, but I really, really doubt it. Cardiac cancer is exceedingly rare, like 3.9 people out of 100k people rare. And not only that, but less than a tenth would have been diagnosed under age 20. This means 3.9 teenagers out of every million people are diagnosed with cancer every year. Perhaps more laughably, only 3.8% of these guys actually die from cancer. All this then he says he's wealthy and his family is mad at him for spending "lots of money" on a mineral oil computer build when he has cancer. C'mon. The case isn't even that expensive, at $600 it's only $400 more than other high performance cases. He probably doesn't have cancer. He was lying about the case, and now this. I think he should see a therapist about compulsively lying. Oh and he is from America, because of how he spells words. Nor is cancer you start bragging about on online forums.
