I have a Q6600 myself and I'm very fond of it. It's a perfect toy, especially for a developer :)

It's true that AMD/ATI have better brice/performance than NVIDIA cards, but their drivers on non-windows platforms are terrible (although getting better). This doesn't concern majority of people,
but if you want (or must have) a bit more exotic system it's much safer with NVIDIA.

I have already heard about that and people believe that is just a gag.

You've never heard of TheOnion?
Yes it is a parody... but so well done. They really have a great production crew

As soon as I clicked the link, I said "It's the Onion! :lol: "
Then I understood LLF's confusion, and saw E's post.
Most Europeans and Non-Americans believe this is a legitimate publication, and not a satirical parody :D

LOL!

I've watched the video without sound and in fast forward, stopping by parts where you can see the mac. :D
But actually, I didn't know 'The Onion' either :)

The parody did come up with an interesting thought: the keyboard that we are using is nearly 200 years old! I mean, nobody yet "reformed" it, and most probably no one ever will, since it's global standard. There are some interesting new keyboards on the market though, like the Logitech Wave, that atleast comes up with a new design.

Imagine making a Death Star mod... Or a ISD one! I have to hang-on to that idea! :)

This has slightly to do with computer hardware (that is, its on hardware I own): but mostly a little boredom... some inspiration from fellow laptop users, some internet searching, and a permanent marker...

(Honestly it looks better in this image than in-person. My lines generally suck and the black doesn't fill in the larger areas)

I'm debating what to put on the sides of my Lian-li full tower case. It happens to be this aluminum silver too :)

If you decide to I would recommend making a stencil ;)

I've been hanging on to the idea of making a Case mod where it would look like an AT-AT factory (like in the ROgue Squadron game). The Problem is I can't find how to extract the model from the game for reference.

You should be able to google it and find somebody else who at least got a good screenshot...

It was awhile back, but you guys were talking about keyboards. Did you know the qwerty keyboard was designed to slow down typists? Old-school typewriters couldn't keep up with humans, so they designed the keyboard to deliberately slow us down. Ironic, eh?

Personally, I'm using an Asus dual-core laptop. A year ago, when I was still on my desktop, I had an Asus motherboard; I'd been using that motherboard for five years, and I got it used from a friend who had it for a year. I figured a six-year old motherboard that was still working just fine (even for games!) was good, so I went with the same company for my lappy. In retrospect, it was a good decision. Way better than gambling with Harry Potter magic (in some circles, they are known as Hewlett Packards, but we all know HP uses the Imperius Curse to control their customers).

Macbook. Pshaw. Obviously, someone is spending too much time in graphics and not enough time enjoying the fruits of other's graphical endeavors; get a PC and do some gaming! Ra Ra Games! Ra Ra Games!

My plan is to get a Mac and then run XP and OSX simultaneously.
