      I must ask, what's a "Microsoft mentor", expect for being someone who apparently gives you very cool birthday gifts?

      A friend wiser than I am, a programming principal who's taken to educate me about the structure of the company, business models, and currently C#. I've just gotten a stack of books from him on that.

      The fact that I've built many of his computer didn't hurt either.

      I was pretty sure 150 wasn't very accurate.

  4. I tried starting my desktop up yesterday only to have a corrupt screen as soon as it got to the desktop. I tried restarting my computer a couple more times only to have the same thing happen each time. After two more tries I booted it up in safe mode, with no problem. Thinking maybe it was the drivers, I removed them, and started it up again normally. No problems at all. As soon as I reinstalled the drivers though, the problem resumed. I took it in to a shop to see if replacing the cards would work (I don't have any spare cards), but they say it'll be three to five days before they can tell me. Still though, I was wondering if anyone here's had any experience with this kind of thing and whether or not it's safe to say it's definitely a problem with the video cards or possibly other hardware.

      Could also be a bad connection. Clean the contacts of the card/slot see if that helps. Sometimes dust gets lodged in there. I've had a could sound cards get flaky when that happen.

      Lemme guess... Creative shit? :-p Those get flaky for, well, pretty much any reason.

      The last time I had a GFX-specific glitch/lockup/crash however was on a mobo which actually suffered hardware damage:

      1. A PCIe 7600GT card burned up, and caused computer shutdown with no other apparent damage...yet. Mobo worked fine with a normal PCI card, until I ordered a replacement PCIe card.
      2. With the defective card IN the slot, my mobo wouldn't start up at all (PSU protection, as I later realized). On a mobo WITHOUT protection however it DID start up...only to cause a RED HOT glowing transistor on the card and a LOT of sparks and Magic Smoke (TM). Yeah, that was one dead card alright.
      3. The damage to the MOBO became apparent only after I received the new PCIe card: whenever I activated something more "advanced" than desktop/safe mode/video overlay, the computer locked up. Not even a blue screen, just a silent freezing. It did this with THREE different PCIe cards, and also with AGP cards in the AGR slot (modified AGP/PCIe transitional slot), but NOT with plain PCI video cards. Therefore there was actual hardware damage somewhere on the mobo itself, which was now usable only with PCI video cards. Not pretty.

      Fallout isn't an FPS, so I don't see the issue. Sure it has guns, but the fact that everything is determined by your character's stats and the weapon's damage variables combined kind of throws the FPS deal out the window.

      Its just my preference to have fragile enemies, especially when you put on Hardcore mode and you become fragile yourself. That, and I've never been a fan of your weapon skill reflecting damage; I think that the skill should reflect accuracy. It's just different tastes. But NV is pretty much half FPS and half RPG, especially when you factor in ironsights (which lets you play the game without going into VATS once).

  6. So the title pretty much sums it up. I picked up a copy of System Shock 2. It cost me a pretty penny but I gotta say, it's worth. Other than the cargo bay (fuck that part. FUCK THAT PART AND FUCK THOSE GOD DAMN SUICIDE BOMBER ROBOTS SO GOD DAMN FUCKING HARD), it's a pretty damn good game. Anyway, I heard that coop for this game was awesome, and I was wondering if anyone with a copy would be interested in trying coop out. If you're interested, let me know if you've got a skype account. It'll make communication (i.e. screaming at you and crying everytime you take something I want) a little easier.

      IIRC I maxed out strength and standard guns. I also put 4 points into energy weapons and 3 points into agility so I could use the laser rapier. Also 4 points in endurance, 4 points in hacking, and two points in cyber-affinity. Also I went with the cyber assimilation trait

  9. My router pretty much died yesterday and now the only way to connect to the interwebs is by hooking it up directly to the modem. My options at this point are to either get a new router or call Belkin and see if they can do anything to help. I'm leaning more towards getting a new router. This one's a piece of shit that's been giving me a headache for a while. Any suggestions for a new router?

  11. With the help of Huy Pham, I was finally able to put together a pretty good rig. It took a while and a trip up to Huy's house since I couldn't put in the CPU without fucking it up, but I think it was worth it. I'm also going to add in a second graphics card a little later.

    Specs:
    Windows 7 64-bit
    4 GBs of RAM
    AMD Phenom II X4965 Processor 3.4 GHz
    ATI Radeon HD 4850 (two of them soon)
    and finally M4A89GTD motherboard

      At $180 you would've been better off with a single 5770. Or buying a pair of used 4870s. A single 5770 is just slightly under a 4890 in terms of performance. Along with less heat, less power consumption, and Direct X 11.

      For $180, the optimal graphics processing is a pair of used 4870s indeed, but you also run into difficulties of dealing with online strangers coupled with potential hardware reliability issues. The money saved versus security is essentially up to the individual to decide.

      A single 5770 is nowhere near as powerful as a pair of 4850's, and DX11 is irrelevant in the purchasing decision at this point, since none of the GPU's out there are powerful enough to handle much tesselation, and the notable games that uses it are counted on fingers, with minimal tesselation to the point of unnoticable. In other words, DX11, like DX10 at the time of its release, will have to wait until hardware catches up to be employed effectively.

      As for the heat and power consumption, if anyone's seen the Antec gaming cases, they are essentially wind tunnels that can blow away their entire air volume in seconds. The amount of money saved by switching to a less power-hungry card is not signficant enough to warrant that big of hit in performance.

      I see what your saying. I've been thinking about replacing my 512mb 4870 with a 5770 for a while. But I can score another 512mb 4870 for alot less. Then I can get all gitty about performance and having two of them crossfiring. For 5770 $ I can add two and have the most pointless yet simultaneously awesome tri-fire rig that only runs shit at 1680X1050. But I think 750Watt wouldn't cut it for 3 and I can barely shoehorn 1 4870 inside it with the PCIE connectors plugged in.

  12. Title pretty much says it all. There's this family that lets their dogs wander around outside. I personally think it's pretty stupid since this is pretty close to what's considered a highway, but I guess they trust their dogs enough to stay out of the road.

    Anyway, I was driving home from school when I noticed one of the dogs on the side of the road. It was laying on its side so I figured it had been hit. Honestly it wouldn't have surprised me if it had. There's usually quite a bit of roadkill laying along this road. I figured the least I could do was see if it was wearing a collar with a number I could call, an address I could take it to, or if it was alive see about getting some help for it. Leaving it on the side of the road seemed pretty wrong. If my dog had been hit I'd damn well want to know about it. The problem was reaching him. The only place to really pull over was a small patch of gravel a little ways up the road. I parked there, ran across the street, and jogged over to where the dog lay. When I got close the dog jumped to its feet, looked at me, and then walked away. I am 80% sure it was just trying to be a dick.

      I only got through Putt-Putt. I watched someone else beat Pajama Sam and Freddy Fish cause I sucked at them, and Fatty Bear made my 5 year old brain explode like the guy's head in Scanners.

      Especially when the old Windows 98 froze whenever the phone rang. Once I clicked on some kind of light that exploded in Fatty Bear's Birthday Surprise, and the computer froze while the light was exploding. It sounded like someone set off the Chaingun in Doom on full blast.

      Friday the 12th just doesn't seem that threatening, tbh.

  22. Sometimes I cant help but feel like I'm really hurting the people around me. There was a girl in high school I had a crush on. I wont say he last name but her name was Kira. I had one hell of a crush on her. She was a great girl. work ed at a shooting range, fluent in german and russian. She was bright, beautiful, and kind. The thing is, she just wanted to be friends, nothing more. There were 3 girls I remember who had crushes on me. It was so obvious too. One was a black girl. Got her number. She seemed really excited when I asked her for it and she was sad as hell when I moved to the other side of the country. There was another. Constantly rubbed up against me in my art class. Again, fucking obvious as hell. But there was that one girl. Kira. I just had to have her and in the end I ended up hurting those other girls while chasing after her. You'd think I'd learn from this right? Maybe it would have been better to pay more attention to one of those other girls. But the thing is, I'm not in high school anymore and I'm still doing it.
    This is a story of two girls. One's in my c++ programming class, the other's in my weight training class (weird combination I know but what the fuck). I've had a crush on the girl in my c++ programming class for a while now. She just seems so damn perfect. She's a great artist, she's smart, and she's so caring. She does charity work on a regular basis.
    Then there's this girl in my weight training class. I never really got her name. Mainly because I didn't pay much attention to her which plays an important role in this stotry. We talked a bit during class and I honestly thought she was pretty cool. Kind of hot too, and for a while I let those feelings show. Then I remembered that girl in C++, the one I had a crush on. And then I talked to her lesss
    and less
    and less.
    Until we finally stopped talking altogether.
    Now she won't even look at me. I still feel guilty about this but all I can think about is this girl in my c++ class.
    Honestly, you all seemed pretty bright. What the hell is wrong with me? Am I just greedy? Or is ther something mrore

      You are a typical 20-something male surrounded by a bunch of hot chicks.

      Despite the fact you're not in high school anymore, you haven't "grown up" in the way you're ready to settle down and have kids so you're just doing what everyone else does.

      It's school, some people score, some people get their feelings hurt and the shoe often changes foot.

      You are perfectly normal. Don't beat yourself up over it.

      I do the same thing, but I don't feel guilty for it (or at least only little, not enough to be substantially bothered by it). I have an all or nothing mentality and it sure doesn't behoove me when it comes to girls. I think Super Jamie is right, tho; it's pretty normal and many people do the same thing and don't feel guilty. On the other hand, lots of people would focus more on the girl in your weight training class and forget about the one who seems less interested, even if they are more interested in that one--it is possible to change your interest. One thing you could do is ask your number one choice out or for her number--if she declines your advance, then you can focus more on the other girl. Personally there aren't a lot of hot chicks hitting on me, so I can't completely relate to your conundrum, but I'd say try focusing more on the one who is interested in you if you are in fact interested in them, even if they aren't your first pick. It's very possible--I'd even say likely--you'll end up liking the 'next best' girl a lot once you get to know her and hang out with her etc.

      EDIT: computer shut down because it has no battery and the power became disconnected while I was editing the post--but when I restored Google Chrome, the post was just where I left it. I didn't lose anything I wrote, and just continued editing the post where I was when the computer shut down! Pretty cool.

  23. So I learned just how dangerous elevators really are. I had just finished with my weight training class and I decided to head over to the cafeteria for a snack. So I went to the cafeteria and was on my way to the lounge upstairs when I decided to just go ahead and be a lazy bastard and take the elevator instead. So I got in the elevator, and about half way up the power went out and the elevator got stuck. I'm not really that claustrophobic but I was kinda nervous about being sealed in a nearly pitch black box. 2 minutes later I began hallucinating. I kept seeing REoL lurking in the corner with his camera, giggling, and rubbing his face against the wall. I was really scared by that point. 3 minutes later and there was still no power. REoL was now crouching on the ceiling, his head spinning in circles like some kind of living merry go round. I cowered in the corner of the elevator, praying that he wouldn't come any closer. 6 more minutes passed and now REoL's eyes were glowing and he was speaking in strange tongues. The lens of his video camera had turned into a gaping mouth that babbled on and on about its love for elevators. I was crying by that point. I didn't know how much more I could take. Finally, after what felt like hours, the power came on and the elevator started moving again. I kept my eyes closed the entire way up. I didn't want to see him in the light. Finally the doors opened and I rushed out. I turned around expecting to see him standing in the elevator but there was nobody there. The doors started to close but I forced them back open as I slowly stepped back into the elevator. I began to realize just how stupid I was to think that what I saw was real when the elevator doors suddenly closed. I started to scream and soon the sound of REoL's laughter joined it.

      It'd be better if he didn't use that phrase in nearly every troll thread.

      I bet you're still curious to find out about my condo's elevators, kinda let that fall behind.
