Test controversial topic:

AMD processors better for Mac. People need to dump XP/Vista.

Anyway, Love the snow.... hate the ICE.
Someone needs to invent non-icing snow. That would be great!

I was joking about the hole controversial thing, but when you are friends with ninja (basically in DaClan), you find out about a lot of things and so I post some of the really interesting thing such as the ocz cryo being the cheapest phase change to debut at only \$350, cheaper than some water coolers

and you are how old?
I use to do homework for a friends kid's science class. It was funny as heck the stories I heard back from the teacher.

One of the best ones was that a teacher was using the solar system to show how to calculate an area of a circle. So here is the circular orbit of Earth:

Earth is 1AU from the Sun. Area of circle: Pi((1AU)^2)

Anyway teacher said no thats wrong (obviously im sure she was like wtf is AU?)

So I had the kid redu it using the Kepler's 2nd law

"the planets move such that the line between the Sun and the Planet sweeps out the same area in the same area in the same time no matter where in the orbit."

Anyway, after the math was complete (which I explained the best I could to the 13 year old who knew algebra well) he still got a fail.

His dad talked to the teacher about it and he got an A+ for "going out of his way to improve his knowledge".

Funny.

I'm old enough for our purposes, but anyways, lol man, either that's a stupid teacher (like my old algebra teacher, who got mad at me for doing work "over the level of the content", apparently teachers don't like it if you are proficient in math), apparently she couldn't tell it's the same thing as the basic formula of the area of a circle, pi(r)^2, by substituting the radius for the distance from the center of the sun to the center of the earth. Anyways, that reminds me of the good ol' days of 7th grade (while ago for me)

Thought you said you were in HS? 7th grade is what.... one - three years ago.

I am in high school, I said that I was in 7th grade a few years ago

Well 7th grade was back more years than both of you combined 1972.

Only 19 more for me. Is it acceptable to start up your own thread, called "Make me an avatar", and then just post twenty responses to your own question?

You do that, I'll have you proverbial ass in a sling.

Can we add posting from the Inquirer to the ass in a sling category as well.

I say that's a good idea, well, bye bye pope, bm, and about 2983754 other people. Only problem with that is respectable people like Jack have also posted from the Inquirer

19...

...

Only kidding. I'm not sure what you want with my ass in a sling, but I don't want to find out.

And BaldEagle... what's wrong with The Inquirer, anyway? Is it just that it's pretty speculative and a great source for FUD? I keep finding back-dated Inquirer things that are just total nonsense, like there being a DirectX 9 L that is like DirectX 10. Well, people tell me it's nonsense, anyway.

It was a joke. But if you decide to spam, the mods will put your post count to 1 in a heart beat.

As for the Inq, always try to have a corroborating source when posting from them.

Didn't actually know the mods could reduce your post count, but I guess it's a good thing they can, otherwise there'd be too many spammers around

Early in my posting career, I posted 100 posts in the test section cause I was board... .they sent me a PM and said I DONT THINK SO.

heh, that's great

no, I can tell you they are far from the same person, I met dragonspayer when he first joined here and had a quest to reach 100 posts for a picture and was a very enthusiastic person and wasn't a troll of any kind, whereas BM is for sure a troll

Thank you! lol! :twisted:

ok since you said that - here's the bottom line, amd is being really tricky they are throwing all the crap out like the 6000+ and the is on board chip set because something big is coming next month - i think its a new crossfire chip set with the r600 series -who knows maybe even a first class cpu which we have not seen since early dual cores.

could amti be the new #1? :twisted:

We all intel has not friends and no high end gpu companies to pair up with.

Everyone gets a finger wag from the mods, at least once. Some twice. By the way, has anyone noticed that there is a new mod?

You're welcome, but for your sake, I'd calm down a bit and either take a break or check out other sections beyond cpus, mobos and ram are nice ones to check out.

Anyways ninja, surprisingly enough, I haven't been yelled at yet, even though Mrs.Bytch flames at me every time we meet because he's mad I have more posts. And may I ask, from whom shall be recieving our yelling from since there is a new mod (studying shakespeare, trying to get some of the language down, and yes I know it needs work)

Yes Thanks. dont make me Mod you out of existence DaSick.

SebastianV

And the next time MsBytch aims one at you, let one of us know.

Gah! Give it away why dont you.

Its at the top of the section. Doesn't really matter.

Look guys, stop pretending to be moderators or I'm going to reduce your post count, put your asses in slings and wag some fingers around...

A TOOLBAR FOR ANTISPYWARE? WTF.

if it doesnt work unless you push the button then it is not an active spyware program, which means any nonactive spyware program such as Ad-Aware and spybot would work much better.

Where did He say he wanted an active anti-spyware? I thought the key point was FREE. Did I not CLEARLY say that it would only work if you pushed the button in the toolbar? :roll:

Who me? I've never impersonated a mod. But this ends my visit here.

uhh, why not get zone alarm and avg anti-spyware, a great free combo? :wink:

Man Dragon what are you spraying now

I currently like the Intel platform (C2D) but I will always admit that the netburst era was a true mistake.

AMD was winning on nearly every level for that time. Had I been in need of an upgrade I certainly would have purchased AMD. I still might (depending on when I get off my backside and build my multipurpose machine).

I think many here are enthusiasts and have some lean toward one proc or the other... I also understand/hope that some of this was said in jest.

Right now AMD/supporters of AMD find it hard to produce much if any positive news. However I hope the K8L/K10 produces a lot of talk in the industry.

In fact I hope the next gen arch from AMD sets the bar way high!!

That way Intel can respond in kind too.

I think intel already set the bar way high, what I want is the same performance and cool running for a less to be able to afford the parts, I know for sure I can't afford a \$800 q6600

wow a self impossed ban from cpu's? ya soon as i hit 500 i going to chill - i tired gpu's, mobo's, psu, overclocking and others but there boring - atfter while you get tired of telling peeps to turn of the AI or turn up the ram voltage or smear the artic slive as thin as possible.

only 31 posts till 500 i make it tonight!

Thanks DragonSprayer you're a wealth of information!

That might not be a bad idea

Does anyone have any idea why my asus update software doesn't work? Anyway I can update my bios another way besides getting it off asus's site?

Thats the point the Inquirer is FUD it's right about as often as a Magic 8 ball is.

So that's why I never won the lottery even though my magic 8 ball said I would

BM can manufacture all the positive news you can stomach.

If we have a slug fest for CPU performance the winners will be everyone because we all get cheaper faster processors.

I just built one with the ASUS P5N-E and went to the website and downloaded the update utility and it worked but the one on the disk with the MB doesn't work.

Yeah, that's what I really enjoy about there being two cpu companies, because even if you can't get the top performance from one, the other will bring you unbelieveable prices that can't be beat, such as an x2 3600 brisbane for barely over \$100, considering it oc's to over 3ghz and still demolishes half the intel cpus on the market at stock until all the pentium based ones are completely phased out, it's an amazing deal

ok, I'll try to do that, it may work for me that way since the one on the crosshair's disk doesn't work either

Is it just me or are asus's servers dead slow? I get only 10-15kbps downloads compared to over a meg on some sites
