    I made a $30 deposit at EB games for Borderlands 2. If that doesn't count as a game purchase then my last one before that was sniper elite V2

    Being "casual" is no excuse for being ignorant.


    Being anonymous is no excuse for being an asshole.

    Looks like I have won the argument. You have nothing. Absolutely nothing to defend yourself with.


    Bonkify stopped trying to argue with you a long time ago and I don't blame them. Also, declaring that you have won an argument just not make it so (in fact, it's rather pretentious...)

    Quote from Bowserchomp »

    Your little pies and cake argument was completely irrelevant.


    Not really, all they were trying to say is that they like one thing (macs) and all you are doing is shoving the idea that there are 'better' alternatives available (PC) down their throat. According to your logic it apparently follows that no-one could possibly like that first thing (macs) regardless and anyone who does is a complete nutcase.

    You can easily have Mac OSX on a PC (if it has an Intel processor) with a little know-how, completely rendering Apple's overpriced and outdated pieces of crap useless.


    Not everyone has that 'know-how', not to mention simplicity regarding setting something up is a very appealing factor to a lot of people. Some people just want to buy a mac and have a mac.

    Get that through YOUR thick head. That is all.

    Attack the opponent's argument, not the opponent.



    Now that I'm done with that. My gaming platform of preference is PC. Mostly due to it's all-rounded-ness (it's not just for games, it does everything I want; word processing, web browsing, image editing, gaming...).

    That and steam. I don't know if it's the same (savings wise) in America, but with the current conversion rates I can get steam games dollar for dollar (AUD to USD), often meaning I save more than $30-50 on a game than if I had gone out to buy it in a store.

    Papercraft?

    I do it occasionally, very time consuming though requires some finesse and a reasonable amount of concentration (for more advanced papercrafts or very well made ones at least).

    It looks interesting from the trailer, though I can't help feel they are going to screw it up like most other CoD games. I'd say it's a no buy from me.

    I need to finish Okami. It's an amazing game but I never made it all the way through. I think I got up to the sea serpent (the shipwreck)/Beating the sword guy who makes the smog (I don't remember the order, around there, it's been too long)

    posted a message on A very emotionally Tourturing dream
    Your dreams are almost the complete opposite mine.

    I find my dreams to be very abstract. Whenever I am following a person/creature/thing in a dream it tends to be very disembodied, like I have no control over the person/creature/thing. On top of that I don't recall any dream were I've seen from a first/second point of view. They are always a third person view or a fixed point of observation. There is also never any sound at all, if someone says anything, I sort of know what they said, but I didn't hear it.

    Usually there is nothing coherent happening like a story of sorts (like you describe in your dreams) and they are usually very short. I can recall a dream of mine that lasted about 4 seconds that was just a shot of earth (seen from space), then there was just a whiteout, followed by a nuclear explosion, after which I 'snapped' awake.

    Anyway enough of that, your dreams are very vivid OP, and also quite interesting. I think it would be cool if you kept a log somewhere (an online blog or something) where you wrote detailed recollections of your dreams (not like a book or novels per se, more like your original post).

    You seem to have quite the imagination.

    my computer is finally able to connect to our new router. I basically had to go through the registry and remove anything even loosely related to my network settings though :/

    posted a message on Router Help?
    I'm having some very perplexing issues with a wireless router. If anyone is able to help I would greatly appreciate it. Also, apologies in advance if this is not appropriate for this section

    My family recently got a new wireless router (Billion BP7800N) because our old router(Thomson TG782T) was not giving us a particularly good signal strength. Ever since my father installed this router, I have had nothing but trouble with the internet.

    At first, I was able to connect but the internet speed was abysmal. Google took anywhere from 5 to 30 seconds to load and other pages even longer. I tried doing some downloads which started out fast (800-1000 KB/s) but quickly dropped to around the 30 KB/s mark. In most cases, after running at that speed for a bit the download just cut out and stopped entirely and in some cases (such as autopatchers for games) I was unable to even initiate a download and got errors like "unable to connect to patch server" and "unexpected EoF"

    Obviously this is not the sort of internet connection I would expect for ADSL2+, even through a wireless router. Unfortunately, things have gotten worse lately. At one point yesterday, the router stopped giving off a wireless signal at all (even though it was connected to the internet, so my dad's computer on an Ethernet cable had internet access). The signal has started again though and the router has returned to normalcy, for every device in the house except my computer.

    My dilemma is that I can see the signal from the router, except for some reason (which totally eludes me) my computer refuses to connect to it. I can see it in the wireless networks list on windows but clicking connect just gives me the message "Windows was unable to connect to___". The troubleshooter just tells me there is some issue with the router or adapter settings.

    some more info:
    -My internet is coming through to my computer through a netgear adapter (WNA3100)
    -I am using the appropriate security protocol (WPA2-Personal (AES)) and the correct encryption key
    -I am not using a proxy in my internet settings
    -I have not set up a static IP address for my computer
    -We do not have a static external IP address (I don't think this really matters)
    -I unfortunately do not have access to any router settings at this time
    -As far as I can tell all above issues regarding the internet (slow connection and download speeds/inability to connect) seems to be localised to my computer

    If anyone is able to shed some light on the situation I would be very happy as this has frustrated me to no end. Also for those who are curious, I am connected to the internet through the personal hotspot feature on my iPhone
