I feel like 4chan must have found the site.
It was pretty awesome today!
The easiest means to fight this is setting new accounts to require approval from the Admin or a Moderator.
And yeap, this guy can take two aluminum soda cans and weld the bottoms together. It's apparently a good exercise, but it's a lesson in hand control and knowing when your about to melt, especially with aluminum.
Sounds like a motherboard chipset item. Without more info on your build, hard to say, but I'd start with chipset drivers.
"Substantial speed difference" does not exist between ANY motherboard from $40+ if you don't plan on OC'ing, and aren't running hardware that might be near the bottlenecks.
If anything you can save yourself some money and go even cheaper. Just avoid ECS brand, as I find them rather bottom of the barrel.
Personally after testing both these new retina displays against regular ones in the same price range, I'm unimpressed.
Certainly the clarity is nice. The contrast assistance is nice.
But at 2-3 feet, I can't tell.
I do have glasses, and they do correct properly.
But I really can't tell. If you concentrate, you can sort of make out the lining. And for some films comparatively you sort of feel a nicer edge. But that's all. Is the price worth it yet? I don't believe so.
I learned from a buddy whose goal one weekend was to get it so I could weld together the sharp edges of two razor blades without blowing through or using too much fill, and then weld two soda cans together.
Razor blades ✔
Cans? :( Still can't manage that insanity experiment

You have a great start to a forum here, but while you have an Off-topc, and you have alot of topics... You don't actually have a section for just "Projects" or "DIY" or "Build its" or "I want to's". That kind of shindig.
Fair enough Morbo. I think the original intent of the thread was not to ignore it as I said (albeit over handedly), but to give it its due. Instead of just praise, some accurate assessment of pros and cons might be a good middle ground?
The only stiff comment I heard was that the built in 64gb wasn't nearly enough, but that the rest of the machine was Zeus's bowel movements of greatness.
One of the stand offs? No go. I highly doubt that could cause anything like you described. Many people rock their motherboards all the time without a case, a plastic case, or other non conductives. Sounds like you had a loose cable and possibly moving things around you remembered it; or knocked it back into place.
But a loose standoff? Don't think so.
Overstated a bit, my apologies, when the MSI Wind U230 was about, the statement would be correct at the $350 pricepoint.
Science would be fine. I look forward to more podcasts either way.
A bit less might be nice?
I think they made some great things. I think they created some new markets. And I now they make some great profit margins.
But if your pitching or trying to pitch to a bunch of techys, while you may certainly find some Mac-ism in the group. More often than not I bet these people build there own computers and run Windows or even Linux. Because a $300 netbook can often outpower a $1000 Mac-anything, it's something interested to consider about your audience.
Sure it's good gear, but is it the best gear? Has it's quality control massively slipped? Have they really done wonderful things or are they just selling social popularity in a white plastic package? The argument goes both ways and I feel like this kind of techism site might benefit from either some avoidance of said debate, just not making it a part of conversations, or just actually always trying to be fair by showing off the competitions products as well.
Unless of course you guys are looking for a new sponsor, then keep it up! ;)
/no offense intended, just some straight talk
Ah I love minecraft.
Submitted the req :)
Well hey everybody, saw this through youtube and a friend and figured I'd register.
Some interesting projects, and an avid builder of thingamabobs brickitabracks and shinanigans, I thought following along and the youtube channel is just well, great fun and an awesome project.
So hello! Nice forum, nice place ya got here.
