Feb 14, 2014Sorry if this isn't in the right forum. I was wondering if and op griefed using commands and someone were to use /stop if it would shut down the console and if there would be a log of the console one could check to see the specifics of the griefing and what commands the griefer used or if it would just kind of be gone. Thanks!Posted in: Server Support and Administration

Learn at your own pace from a book or something, it's a bad idea to learn something like programming from a formal class.
Also, you should learn something simple like Python as a first language that can still be useful later (AKA, not VB) and for a second language, use something that isn't a complete mess, aka not Java. I recommend C(++). For a 3rd language, learn LISP and read SICP.
Learning from a class is nice and I'd still take the Java one. It provides an environment which covers everything thoroughly and where questions can be easily asked. Even though it may not cover very much, it would still be much easier for OP to take the class and then get a book after the fact IMO.

do these actually exist?
Stained Glass 101
Guitar Workshop 101
Beard Growing 101
MTG Strategies 101
Getting your genitals stuck in unlikely places 101
opening windows 101
closing windows 101 (opening windows 101 is a requisite)
Making purchases online with debit 101 (this would just repeat the stupid commercial over and over)
Monster Building 101 (with Dr.Frankenstein)
Using Hammers for everything 101
Repairing damage caused by liberal Hammer use 101
Building Pillow Forts 101
Yeah, I put stained glass as my number two of my eight elective selections and didn't get it. I was ed. I go to a big school so they have some a bunch of different programs and crap.
Jan 18, 2014Honestly I would just take the Java class. High school programming courses are slow and thoroughly cover things (too slow IMO), and I've seen my school's game design visual basic thing and its very simple and boring. I wouldn't worry about taking too much on at once, personally I'd just go with the Java class and take stained glass or guitar workshop or whatever other weird electives at your school instead of game design.Posted in: Computer Science and Technology
Jul 1, 2013To OP: If you are planning to do BF3, I assume a 7850 may be a reasonable idea, especially if you do plan to buy games in the upcoming few years. A 7770 will also probably work, just depends on what you are going after and how pressed you are for cash.Posted in: Hardware & Software Support
To the whole GPU debate thingy, I don't know how much this contributes, but my GT430 could run MC above 60FPS on reasonably high settings and its ranked a bit above the HD4000 on the GPU hierarchy that Tom's Hardware has last I checked.
Jul 1, 2013Is your edited build just an SSD? You will need a hard drive and an SSD if you want to use one. Honestly, other than that your build is fine, you could build it yourself and save a bit of cash but that is a reasonable computer, and it is much better to but ~$1000 in the PC and then some more money into monitors, audio and other peripherals that won't get outdated as fast. People will probably insist you build it youself, its easy and takes about 2 hours the first time but if that really doesn't appeal to you and isn't worth $200-ish to you then don't.Posted in: Hardware & Software Support
Jul 1, 2013pretzelguy1 posted a message on Lenovo- IdeaPad 15.6" Laptop - 4GB Memory - 320GB Hard Drive - Black vs Toshiba- Satellite 15.6" Laptop - 4GB Memory - 500GB HarThe Lenovo is slightly more powerful. What is you budget? We might be able to find an even better one.Posted in: Hardware & Software Support
You aren't going to get any gaming power out of either of these if that's what you are trying to do. What are you using the laptop for?

Ooh that's a step up.
Also, from what I saw in the benchmarks, the 610m is pretty crappy but a step up from the GPU in the A4. Not that really matters, yours is better, thanks!
Feel free to continue suggesting, this has another week before it will be ordered.
Jun 29, 2013Hey guys, I've got a fairly basic request. I'm really just looking at the most gaming capable laptop possible for under $600. Not really much to add to that, there is no "wait and save another $200" or "build a desktop" situation, I have been here for a while-a laptop will be purchased in the next week and it will be under $600, I know it won't be capable of much, if anything, just trying to squeeze as much as possible.Posted in: Hardware & Software Support
I was pondering this, but not great with mobile APU's: http://shop.lenovo.c...00025:0000347D:
I'm sure there is a better one out there though. Thanks!
EDIT: This appears slightly better http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834230987
Jun 28, 2013You could honestly tone it down to about $1500-$2000 and still get 60FPS on basically everything for awhile and then you would have some cash on hand for an upgrade in a few years. I would do that personally.Posted in: Hardware & Software Support
Also, my experience with Razor is meh, I would got with a G9x and a different mechanical keyboard (not sure what one) and you could get a better product for less.
Jun 28, 2013I would grab two hard drives for recording, a pretty small one won't cost much. As long as its 7200 RPM it should do fine (honestly if you have a dead laptop or something lying around a 5600 RPM one it should work). Just record to your secondary drive, keeping in mind it is uncompressed video and will take up some space.Posted in: Hardware & Software Support

at the moment im working with a budget of about $600 cad. unfortunately that will have to include windows 7
600 for the pc itself i mean, no monitor, mouse or keyboard. is that possible?
$600 probably won't cut it, if you had the peripherals (mic, mouse, monitor-anything that isn't the actual computer) it might be doable but I don't see it working with this kind of budget. Get another $200 and you may be able to squeeze by.

Oh yay! Mini-mixers. I will check those out. I don't really have any flat surfaces left in my room or money in my wallet for a mixing table.
EDIT: It appears to be mono. It seems I will need to spend more money on this *sigh*
Anyone know how the quality of this would be? http://www.amazon.com/Behringer-502-XENYX502-5-Channel-Mixer/dp/B000J5UEGQ/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1370818615&sr=8-2&keywords=at+audio+mixer
Anyone have any other solutions?

Yeah, I wouldn't attempt doing that buddy.[/size][/font]
Oh. Yeah, that sounds like a horrible idea, thanks for pointing out the obvious warning I missed o.o
So this just got a buttload less simple it seems. I've got a ~80's analog surround sound receiver (Denon AVR-600), a PC and a turntable. Is it possible to hook up the PC to the receiver or do I need a mixing board of sorts? Is there a mixing board that exists the doesn't take up 4 square feet of space and is cheap?
EDIT: Perhaps something like this? http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021817&p_id=9299&seq=1&format=2
