Video Card Death April 27, 2012, 10:29 am
I get home from work the other day, and smack my keyboard with my hand as per usual, waking my computer up from its 8 hour nap. I toss my keys on the desk and my vid card fan goes to 100%, my display doesn't initialize and in a panic I flick the power off on my PSU. Shit.

Turns out my voltage regulators are fucked and my computer won't post unless I squeeze the rear of the card (where the VRMs are) against the main heatsink, bending the pcb. In GPU-Z my VDDC Phases are off, sometimes showing #1 and #3 as working fine, with #2 conspicuously absent of any reading. Sometimes #2 is working but the others are gone. When I bend the card toward the heatsink all 3 show up as normal...

Freakin' weird, man. So I got a Sapphire 6870 on the way, should materialize tuesday.

Stupidity involving linux (long) May 19, 2004, 8:06 pm
This is an example of the defensive stupidity you can have with what might be the typical linux user...or just these two psychos.

DISCLAIMER: I (iori) am just making up random shit here. These guys are feeding off of it.

[17:15] * ChanServ sets mode: +v Acid1x
[17:16] <iori_> tox, when you submit a wad to WIP, is it always in RED for the owner of the wad, or just when its in the approving process>
[17:18] <toxicfluff> Just for the approving process.
[17:18] <toxicfluff> It took 2 days for my wad to get up there.
[17:18] <toxicfluff> But I did submit it on a friday or something.
[17:18] <toxicfluff> Hello, windows lover.
[17:19] * Acid1x gives tox the finger
[17:19] <toxicfluff> hehe
[17:20] <iori_> hehe
[17:20] <iori_> I love windows
[17:20] <toxicfluff> I don't have time to make a fool out of you today, I'm afraid.
[17:20] <iori_> Especially windowsME, its almost FUN to use!
[17:20] <toxicfluff> haha
[17:20] <toxicfluff> ME blows.
[17:20] <Acid1x> make a fool of me?
[17:20] <toxicfluff> I thought you were on 2k now?
[17:20] <iori_> I like the random crashes, it keeps you on edge!
[17:20] <iori_> I am on 2k
[17:21] <Acid1x> I'd say XP now sucks more then ME
[17:21] <iori_> And I just love it when windowsME decides ive spent too much time on the computer, and shuts down! YAY!
[17:21] <iori_> Now I wonder if it can cook...
[17:21] <iori_> XP is marginally better than ME
[17:21] <iori_> 2k and 98 rule them all though
[17:22] <iori_> And Linux is just MacOS with a fancy name
[17:22] <Acid1x> Fedora Core 2 owns all of them
[17:22] <Acid1x> what?
[17:22] <iori_> look at me, I habe a mac on the PC
[17:22] <iori_> have*
[17:22] -toxicfluff- You go, me buddy :P
[17:22] <Acid1x> Linux is completely diff from mac
[17:22] <iori_> Nope
[17:22] <iori_> theyre the same
[17:22] <iori_> Like carrots and turnips
[17:22] <Acid1x> it wasnt until MacOS 10 that mac started to use Linux technology
[17:24] <iori_> No, I read in my MAC ATTACK magazine that Linux was just a cheap rip off. And franky, I believe them. They sure know their stuff
[17:24] <Acid1x> no it isnt
[17:24] <iori_> Yes, it is
[17:24] <Acid1x> mac and Linux have two completely different goals
[17:24] <Acid1x> Mac is a desktop OS
[17:24] <Acid1x> Linux is for server and programming professionals
[17:24] <iori_> Macs have the power of a small nuke in every tower, so says 'mac attack'
[17:24] <Acid1x> they cant be different
[17:25] -toxicfluff- MAC ATTACK ahahaah, you rule.
[17:25] <Acid1x> G5s are overrated
[17:25] <Acid1x> the Athlon 64 FX-53 is just if not more powerful
[17:25] <toxicfluff> Programming professionals.
[17:25] <toxicfluff> pah
[17:25] <iori_> Well macs treat their users like royalty, and come bundled with AOL! Sweet Deal!
[17:25] <iori_> I love the 24 hour tech support
[17:25] <iori_> because when I didnt know how to print my essay, Tech Support was there!
[17:25] <iori_> I love them to bits
[17:26] <iori_> Seriously, If it wasnt for AOL, the internet would be a mystery to EVERYONE
[17:26] <iori_> AOL opened the doors, and made all things possible. Theyre almost like God!
[17:27] -> -toxicfluff- I think hes tired of it.
[17:27] -> -toxicfluff- Too bad, I was having fun
[17:27]* crazyman has joined #legacy
[17:27] <crazyman> hey mofos
[17:27] <iori_> and who art thou?
[17:27] <Acid1x> mac is not a rip off of Linux
[17:27] <Acid1x> period
[17:27] <iori_> Yes it is!
[17:28] <Acid1x> err other way around
[17:28] <toxicfluff> Exactly
[17:28] <toxicfluff> It isn't a rip off.
[17:28] <toxicfluff> Freudian slip.
[17:28] <iori_> Macs came before linux
[17:28] <Acid1x> Linux and Mac are two different OS with two different goals
[17:28] <Acid1x> Linux came out before windows
[17:28] <iori_> Quicktime, AOL, macs have it all
[17:28] <Acid1x> so did DOS 5.0
[17:28] <crazyman> wow whats the argument in here
[17:28] <Acid1x> they are ripped off of Linux too then?
[17:28] <iori_> Dos that like windows 2 or something>
[17:29] <Acid1x> well these idiots think Linux ripped mac off
[17:29] -toxicfluff- Honestly, he is proof against his own arguments.
[17:29] <crazyman> lol dos 5
[17:29] <Acid1x> no its not
[17:29] <crazyman> lol your dumb iori
[17:29] <Acid1x> lol
[17:29] <iori_> ..IM NOT DUMB
[17:29] <crazyman> LOL
[17:29] <crazyman> this is funny guys
[17:29] <Acid1x> Windows and DOS are two different OSs
[17:29] -toxicfluff- I mean, that there is no dumb linux users. Heh, programming professionals and server stuff.
[17:29] <crazyman> yea
[17:29] <iori_> No theyre not
[17:29] <crazyman> completley different
[17:29] <Acid1x> and Windows didn become an OS until like 2000
[17:29] -toxicfluff- He's too dumb to even realise he's being led on for the SECOND time.]
[17:29] <Acid1x> because it ran out of dos
[17:29] <iori_> and MacOS is better than linux, and linux 3 as well
[17:29] <crazyman> wtf
[17:30] <crazyman> linux 3?!
[17:30] <iori_> My friend has linux 3
[17:30] <crazyman> you have no fucking clue what your takling about
[17:30] <iori_> he said so
[17:30] <Acid1x> I can feel the stupidity
[17:30] <crazyman> dude do yourself a favor and stfu
[17:30] <Acid1x> Linux 3 doesnt exist yet
[17:30] <iori_> My friend works in a library. HE KNOWS THIS STUFF
[17:30] <crazyman> nothing is better then gentoo (linux)

[17:33] -toxicfluff- I bet crazyman is just an anonymous friend acid1x brought in
[17:33] <crazyman> dos was complete shit you moron
[17:34] <Acid1x> its only ability was executing programs
[17:34] <Demis> I think windows rules.
[17:34] <Acid1x> and if you know anything about OSs thats pretty weak
[17:34] <Demis> linux is just for dumbasses and retards

Albeit sad, that has to be one of my more humourous IRC chats.
Its kinda cool that in 20 minutes 2 people can get so religeously defensive about an OS. WTF is this world coming to.
