    Quote from Phoenix»

    I just can't get myself to care about Kirito, I don't feel attached to him and I can't relate to him in any way.


    I tried SOA because the music composer is the same as my favorite anime/movies but It just wasn't for me I guess.


    It just occurred to me that there's pretty much only one male character from an Anime that I actually like.


    He's a bad character.

    What does that have to do with anything?


    It does judge performance to an extent.

    Anyways, it's probably due to the processor.


    Have you tried changing the settings of the game? What are his settings, and what are yours?


    OGL is pretty awful.

    It's a terrible place with a terrible dug-in community. Just like every vaguely popular internet community.

    Sure about that? Both Seagate and Western Digital sell drives as large as 6TB or even larger in the case of one WD AE model



    The Backblaze results on which that particular post is based have already been discussed:






    The greater density you get with HDDs per-platter the higher the chance of DoA. That's why fm makes such a big deal about mixed platters within that statistic.


    HGST is part of WD but is still retains its independence and core that was bought from IBM. That's why they still exist as HGST drives instead of WD.


    The reason why people make fun of Seagate is because in recent years they have gone for higher and higher data-per-platter to achieve bigger disks, which results in higher failure rates and more corruptible data. It is also why you don't by consumer HDDs bigger than 3TB, since chances are they accomplished that by cramming a lot of data together, which is just terrible everything.

    Show me some statistics?

    I've never seen or even heard of a monitor failing lol


    Why can't you people spend live five minutes googling yourself. I'm not going to try and inform you just because you're lazy.


    The higher the density of pixels in your display, the higher the chance of corruption or defect. This is true of everything. It's why you don't have >3TB HDDs, since the chance of DOA is greater. Exact same reason, in fact.

    Just buy a domain.

    .com is usually in the realm of 15/yr. But you can get other things like .co or .us for cheaper.

    Monitors usually don't just fail out of the oridinary. My dad still uses his 10 year old Apple Cinema display without any issues, and he's not gonna upgrade since it's still a high res display even today (2560 by 1600 30 inch).

    I would just stay with the keyboard/mouse you have now, you can always get new ones later, but I think having better performance would me more worth it


    Monitors fail all the time. Probably something to do with pixel density and the fact most people want to buy $80 panels that are 1080p.

    That's why warranties were invented.

    HP Minis aren't that awful, though you could probably just go with a Stream. And if you can do with just the web version of Microsoft Office you could get a Chromebook.

    Unless you're a weird fanboy of Cherry MX, Tesoro is a good cheap brand.

    Yeah man those 80 cores really help with nonMT programs.

    posted a message on What's your favorite book?

    In terms of story, Isaac Asimov's The Naked Sun has been my favorite for quite some time.

    I think I can cheat, however, and say his essay collection On the Past, Present and Future is my favorite.
