Text sources such as books and the internet are a primary source of information.

All history teachers know this.

Or how to prove you're not a teaching 101,well done.

Horrible horrible price/performance ratio.

Which is of course a flawed product strategy. Diminishing returns to a degree I'm just not comfortable with.

How so? Its not like Intel just canned the 1150 line.

i see scott's angle, i don't think its a flawed product strategy though.

like scott i'd be uncomfortable with the diminishing performance returns per dollar. but at the same time some people just want the best and they can afford it.

he also used to be an issue on OT, just spouting complete bullshit. He once told me evolution was fake and his source was a book that used pictures of fishing lures (taken from the internet) and tried to pass them off as actual living creatures

Its not my words. but a words of very very intelligent author who know how to debunk evolution in 10 second. its a fraud theory created by illuminati and freemasons. evolution is fake. very very very fake.

if i believe in conspiracy theories. does that make me idiot? so you think all conspiracy theorist are idiot? no no no. not that. but people are sheep who blindly follow media.

>Claims to deny evolution

Man you and that ignorant author don't know shit about evolution. Also the Illuminati? You think they "run the world"? That's funny.

Its not aimed at people looking to max that performance/price. Its aimed at people who want the very best. For gaming sure, its overkill as the much cheaper higher clocked 4970K mauls it but for everything else the 5960X is the king of the castle. Its aimed at people who are content creators, its aimed at people who want more than what the 1150 line offers yet have no need for a Xeon based chip.

1150 - Mainstream
2011-3 - Power user
2011 Xeon - Enterprise

So my 13" Mac Book Pro's HDD just died. I was using it and then it froze up. I restarted it and the system files were gone. So I used the OSX install disk. OS was missing so I couldn't repair. Tried to do a new install. Got to the screen where it says select a disk to install to and there weren't any options.

It's $40 for a 50 GB WD blue mac book HDD. Not sure if it's worth the trouble. At any rate we had a good run. Good night sweet prince.

No, I'm just wondering why you choose my comment in a lounge for all as the target of your sarcasm.

I have no idea, I haven't even begun looking up purchasing one yet. I was just thinking out loud.

It's not that hard to swap out the drive on the older unibody macs, you just need the correct screwdrivers.

Well I wasn't even supposed to work today anyway, but they called everyone in because they were worried that the work wouldn't be done on time.

The Work was done on time and they just sent mostly everyone home.

I had it once where I turned up, sat in the break room watching TV for 2 hours only to be told that the stuff I was supposed to have loaded in my truck wouldn't be getting to the depot till 8pm that evening. Was sent home with a full days pay even though I spent the first two hours sat on my arse doing sweet nothing.

None of your Vacation Time was used was it? cause our Job does this at times and they just use your hours of Vacation to make up for it. (As in you can take a half day if you wanted to and still get paid). Other wise it's a VTO (volunteer time off.) which you don't get paid if I recall.

If none of your Vacation Time was used, then holy crap that's awesome.

I work agency which means I move from job to job. Basiclly I get a call from the office telling me X company needs a driver on this day at this time. I say yes or no to it. Starting one hour before my shift is supposed to start, if the job gets canceled for whatever reason I still get paid. Working agency is a double edged sword though. For starters, the full timers hate us. I have a vague idea of what I'm supposed to be doing that day and even then its never what I expect. Transport don't seem to give a monkeys. They throw you a set of keys and tell you to piss off. I've driven some real sheds. I had one unit that without fail would always grind the gear whenever I tried to put it into 6th.

That being said, working agency means I get to pick and choose which jobs I do. I've done long distance, local multidrop (which I hated), RDC (regional distribution centre). Next week I may decide to take up an offer to work on the trash trucks. However, if the wheels aren't turning, I anit earning.

Still amazes me that they got it to run better than any of the series' PS3 counterparts, though I suppose you could say it's also amazing how the PS3 games could be so bad in the performance department. lol But yes, it most certainly is. It's a light-hearted, legit funny adventure backed by a great combat system. If that doesn't make it good, I don't know what would.

On a completely unrelated note, how the hell do I take pics? >.> Also, how far are you now?

I just got Noire and now I'm doing some optional dungeons since I've been ignoring 'em until now. I think I was underleveled for her boss battle, but based Iris Heart has been wrecking shit for me.

Don't worry everyone, it's cool. Not only did the M's win, but the Superbowl Champion Seahawks looked in form with a quality win over a tough Green Bay team to kick-off the '14 season. It's gonna be alright guys. It's cool.

Iris Heart, proving her dominance over all the other ____ Hearts (and my heart~) as expected. Suppose I should get to Lastation myself and teach a certain someone a thing or two about humility.
