    posted a message on Changing Main Hard Drive?
    Quote from GroundHound101»

    It's 1TB, so i think it can hold an OS.


    1TB means 1024GB. That is more than most people will ever need for anything. An operating system like Windows 7 only takes up less than 20GB.

    Maybe, depending on the enclosure... BUT, it's not worth it when you can just get an entire new external hard drive for barely more than the price of just buying a bare hard drive. Here is a brand new 1TB external drive for a laptop for $60: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822236576

    And if you have to load an OS onto it, can it be a different one? (like Linux/Mac) or must it be the same one that the primary drive is running?


    You can load most OSs onto any hard drive, as long as you select to boot to it while your computer is turning on. However, USB drives are much slower than internal hard drives, so it will be very laggy.



    What you could probably do is just replace the internal hard drive on your computer. Most laptops have a trapdoor on the underside with a couple screws to pop the panel off and then take the drive out and replace it. You just need to make sure the replacement is the right size and is compatible with the specs of your computer. For a desktop, a hard drive just pops in to replace another one, or you could have multiple internal hard drives.

    I can see why people would think that. Especially if they think of chicken wings instead of chicken nuggets like what I think you were aiming for.

    posted a message on Animal despawn?

    They're not supposed to, but glitches have been known to happen. I've lost tamed dogs before that just vanished. There's also a glitch where animals can glitch through fences when the game is loading, so if you're referring to farm animals, they may have just escaped and ran off.

    Quote from Sunnyd_ftw»

    That's actually not a bad idea. It makes sense considering it is already in the game. The reason i had brought this up again though is because of the new arrow types. There has to be a way to craft them if they are implemented.


    I'm thinking maybe they re-worked the cauldron or added a similar item where you could deposit a potion in it (think of the brewing interface), and then could place items underneath that would be either permanently or temporarily enchanted by that effect. Poison arrows and a poison sword being the most obvious, but maybe a speed potion on an axe would make it chop wood faster, and a jump potion on boots would make you jump higher.

    posted a message on Physical Relationships v. Internet Relationships

    As much as you think an internet relationship may be a relationship while you're a teenager, you'll look back on those days later on life and wonder "what was I thinking?". Take it from someone who grew up in the days of AOL Instant Messenger and online chatrooms before Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/MySpace even existed, and just don't bother. If you really care about someone and want to pursue anything more than a "pen pal" friendship, make sure you regularly see eachother in person. It's so easy to pretend to be someone that you're not when you're never communicating face to face.

    posted a message on Best GTX 980?

    I'll always go with EVGA because they've treated me like a king when I've had to return defective units. Back in 2006 I had a 7900 GT that burnt out (maybe something to do with Vista drivers not regulating the fan properly?) and they replaced it for free with an 8600 GTS. Then I think just last year I had a GTX 465 that started artifacting so they sent me a 560 to replace it.

    posted a message on Can I have to different Brands of RAM in a computer?

    Since you're going to be opening up your computer anyway to install the new RAM, just take out the sticks that are in there (make sure your computer is off first) and write down all of the numbers on them, or if you're lucky it might actually say the model name, then you can just go on NewEgg and re-buy more of the same, that way you'll know 100% it will be compatible.

    posted a message on Wearing shoes indoors

    Back at my mom's house, we never really took our shoes off. Most of the ground floor was wood so it was easy to clean, maybe that was the reason? It's sort of considered impolite (at least where I live in northeast USA) to ask guests to take their shoes off. If there is a party, some people would voluntarily take their shoes off and leave them by the door, but the majority of party guests will leave their shoes on even when they're walking on the carpet.


    But now at my house (I'm an adult now), we take our shoes off as soon as we come in. We don't have guests over very often but we do make them take their shoes off too.

    posted a message on Do you enjoy game music?

    I do really enjoy C418's music in Minecraft, but the problem is that I'm usually multitasking, so I mute the in-game music so I can have a YouTube video playing on one screen while playing Minecraft on the other. I also disable the radio in GTA V because I prefer not to be distracted by it. Same with racing games like Forza because I don't want the distraction and I like the engine noises.

    posted a message on What is your favorite coffee/tea

    Earl Grey usually, though I drink regular black Lipton tea at work more often because it is free.


    Though I like Oolong with Chinese food. And sweet tea or raspberry iced tea on a hot summer's day.

    posted a message on How many hours do you spend on the computer?

    9 hours per weekday while at work, probably 2-3 at home per workday, 5-10 per weekend day. That ends up being 65-80 hours per week

    Quote from thebaum64»

    You still have baby teeth...?


    12-13 the usual age range when all of your baby teeth have been replaced. It's quite possible, especially here on the Minecraft forums, that the OP is 10-12 years old.

    posted a message on what april fools jokes have you guys done today?

    I didn't actually see much in person, but at work somebody pranked the head of IT by replacing his computer monitors with an 80" TV. It looks fun at first, but you have to completely move your head as far as it can turn just to look from the start button to the clock!

    Quote from LapisNya»


    I never really likes him anyway. He always had something against the Scottish. No idea why.


    Part of his "thing" was that he had something against everybody. Don't take it personally that he has something against the Scottish. What about Americans and Mexicans?
