    Guy1: Hey did you hear about how cold it is gonna get tonight?
    Guy2: Yea it's gonna suck.
    Guy1: Not for me. I'm overclocking my PC to keep me warm.
    Guy2: Damn that's pretty smart. I'll have to set an alarm to wake up in the middle of the night to do that.
    Guy1: I don't, I setup a gui interface that will activate the overclocking and lower fan speed at the time I want.

    THESE ARE THE EXACT FUCKING WORDS THAT I HEARD. I was so shocked I had to write it down so someone could find it if I were to shoot myself.
    I'm quite sure those two are just joking around, and the "gui interface" is a CSI joke.

    I often tell others I warm myself using my GTX 480 at night.

    I don't know how many of you guys know this already, but today on my GPU-Z I noticed that there was an extra tab on there, and it appears to be some sort of giveaway.

    can't hurt to try, right?

    oh wow it's not even valid anymore

    My 295GTX (One card 2 die) generates tons of heat too, but my 240-250mm fan solves that problem :smug:

    You wouldn't want a Powercolor anyway. Their build quality is cheap and their RMA service equals with nothing. My cousin's Powercolor Radeon 4850 died after a month or two.

    The man who invented the idea of bandwidth caps needs to be executed.

    HAHAhahahaha, oh god. So, my aunt's friend was looking for a recipe and posted about it on my aunt's facebook, someone said "why don't you google it", and she mentioned she didn't know how to use google. I figured this would be as good a time as any to use LMGTFY.com to explain how it works, so I set up the process and posted the link.

    She posted up a few minutes later:

    I opened the page and tried typing but then it started to type then hit search all by itself! HELP!!!!

    600 GB, but we never get up there.

    Acutally, we almost did when my old friend was watching about 200GB of    Shemale    porn @ 3:00 AM.
    On my PS3 that was TWO DAYS OLD AND I DIDN'T SET A PASSWORD ON IT.

    550/600 GB was used.
    It was all videos.

    Thank god he moved back to Ohio.

    Most of the people won't even go over that bandwidth cap, why have it? That +20GB you might download after reaching the bandwidth cap doesn't even cost them a single cent. In fact, a customer downloading 1GB and another downloading 1TB per month costs the same for them. Data (or Information) =/= Electricity, gas, water, fuel, etc.

    I don't think I would survive in Canada.
    I set up Rainmeter to monitor my internet usage a week ago and I am at 68 GB Down and 2 up (I don't have anything torrenting, so I'm can't seed).

    EDIT:
    I'm at 69 now.

    Well it's better now, they charged 7$/GB over the cap before. We have everything in Canada, except decent ISPs :canada:

    Well we have Teksavvy, but that's only for the west, east only gets Bell and Videotron :saddowns:

    Oh and I forgot, the 2 GB cap is for their lowest plan (256k I think), their "intermediate" plan gets a 60 GB cap.

    It's a great way for them to suggest a higher subscription to you. Be glad you have a cap people and not a FUP(Fair Usage Policy) like I do.
    In short the can advertise it as unlimited but they start to bitch when you use to much. The problem? There adverts don't mention there is a FUP. There entire site and everything refers to the FUP for limits and etc. The FUP itself (as far as I can find) is some rules made up in 2006 placing it around 10 GB a month, of course it isn't 10 a month anymore.

    If they decide you went over it (and you don't know when that is) you get a warning. 3 warnings is getting kicked out(and there like the only company giving cable television here so bye to TV to).

    So yeah there is around 120 after I went over it twice with like 100%.

    Does comcast limit bandwidth or anything? We could switch to them and get better speeds for cheaper, but I've always disliked comcast.

    I'm pretty sure my ISP doesn't even give a shit about my internet usage, last month I downloaded over 1TB of data from the internet (2 computers reinstalled, downloaded Steam games and I helped a friend in reinstalling his computer too, so I downloaded his Steam games too with using my connection since his connection is quite slow, also my whole family started using Spotify 24/7). $20/month, no throttling, no caps, nothing. I love my ISP.

    I doubt we'd use 600GB but my brother is a huge torrenter, still doubting it's above 600GB a month. Should I switch? I currently get about 10 Mb/s download (1.2 MB Download) and 1-2 Mb/s upload. It's horrible!

    Content I just remembered:
    5 years ago, a friend of mine has gone 10GB over his bandwidth cap. His mother told him to not to download anything because they were on a quite expensive ISP temporaly. At the end of the month, they received a letter telling them to pay $1000 due to going "extremely" over the bandwidth cap and they "could've damaged their systems because of the extra load". I'm still puzzled how he managed to go over the 5GB cap with a wireless 0.1/0.0000000000000000000001Mbit/s connection.

    If you have no cap then you shouldn't. 1.2MB/s is a quite good speed, I usually download with that.
