did you really think that this was clever and funny, even in the smallest bit? seriously now. all you're doing right now is wasting precious space on a server somewhere. you're really not funny. this is quite possibly the stupidest thing i have ever seen. do you get my point kid? you really should think twice before hitting the post button. with that said, i have something to share with you. watch it. study it. memorize it. trust me, it will do you good. your parents might even love you if you just watched this video and payed attention. so without further ado, here's the link : http://gprime.net/flash.php/postingandyou.

again...study it. listen carefully to every word and apply it to every and any forum you find yourself in.

Mr. Hellboy, what you have just showed us, is the most insanely idiotic thing I have ever heard. At no point, in your rambling incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul.

you know, lambofgode3x, as stupid as his post may have been, its called freedom of speech. If you didnt like his post simply ignore it. There is a back button on your browser, is there not?

edit: by the way, how is responding to his post with another link to a stupid video any better?

Thanks for a bit of moral support, jeesh I only added this for a bit of fun..

These egomaniacs make life untollerable and should be dumped on the moon or something.

Isn't some of the worlds most desirable people controll freaks...

All we are all trying to say is, there is a time and a place for everything, and this forum is neither for that 'video'. This forum is for people with a little knowledge to share with other people who have less or greater knowledge, and everyone gains.

So dont take offense, and some responses were a little harsh, but it really should be under General chat.

Even though I'll end up buying one, I do wish they'd have called it anything but Phenom. When I heard that name, I thought to myself "this can't be good".

Phenom B3's will be the best budget quad cores until Intel drops the price on the Q6600 after their new series arives, and the Phenom 9000 looks good for an HTPC, but the name is really, really lame.

They should have kept Athlon and called it the Athlon Element (ie the classic earth, air, fire and water). Then, they could have called the triple cores Triathlons. Note to Hector Ruiz: do something about AMD's marketing, and let the engineering group get to work without any kibbitzing.

Yeah it may have been a bit childish but wasnt it funny..

At lambofgode3x

We all need to release some presure after all considering America is facing rescession due to the housing crisis, Iran playing stupid, the rest of the world being attacked by terrorists and other financial woes, global warming, death of the innocent through lack of general things such as food and water, while you munch on your 2 pounder burgers and 3 litres of coke, people being killed by evil dictators in places ( thats countries to you) that you obviously not even bothered to learn about let alone know where they are.



My orgional post was not for offence, for fun.
These messages take up hardly any space on a server and the video was a link, so lambofgode3x if you cant work that one out then that just sums you up.

Now go and chase flying sauces or something and do it for the local community as looking blank in space is your speciality.....


PS - Play the video to the end, now thats the funny bit.....

I really held this place in a much higher esteem before I discovered there was a forum here and what it basically revolves around. No Seriously.

Yeah I know, but it never got the recognition it deserved........ Crap name tho, wouldnt be so bad if it had even taken after is name.... Might as well be called the Phenuminum..

PS I tried to buy some in the trade the other day and no one had some in, on top of that they said that the Phenom has not been selling very well.. Infact the 64x2 sold more and they are running out of stock, I just bought some 5000 series for some cheap builds im doing and they only cost £38 each..

How sad....
