    Best way to end it:

    You: So ps3 or Xbox?
    Him:Xbox (he probs says that)
    You: well the Ps3 is better because its dearer?
    Him: No
    You: So the Iphone isn't better

    Then you put on your cool shades and walk off
    If you think of one console generation as 5 years long. Lets say you buy your Xbox as soon as it comes out and pay ~40 a year for live. Thats an extra 200 over the course of your consoles lifetime. Buy a PS3, pay slightly more to begin with but save around 100 in the long run. PS3 is cheaper.

    "Yeah but Xbox live is better then PSN" is what will come after that.

    Today at college was sat with a friend at dinner and I was playing about with my phone and this is how the conversation went.

    Him: HTC phones are shit they are a small company and Iphones are where it's at.
    Me: Ok then what can an Iphone do that my phone can't.
    Him: In class yesterday some kid took a picture of a logo on his drink and it found the name of the can on google. That's why they are good because they have awesome apps thats your phone can't ever dream of doing.
    Me: Oh really just hold out your can *thumbles around on phone looking for google goggles app*
    *scans logo and waits for it to work it out*
    It then shows the name of the can on screen
    Him: Well that's lucky, iphones are obviously better because they cost more.
    Me: Shut the hell up *walks off*

    I have a HTC legend by the way.
    Just remind him of the HTC Evo... It fucking eats iPhones for breakfast, lunch and dinner...

    Wiiii.
    I opened my ports for MineCraft now.
    Also, Who knows how to get rid of csrss.exe virus? For some reason, I have two of those and task manager won't show me where these files are.
    Vista over here.

    Also, Downloaded Pinguy OS.
    It seems to be having a bit (LiveCD Booting) copyed from Debian. Atleast I am over here atm, haven't booted it fully yet.
    Virtual Machines are awesome.

    Pinguy has:
    LiveCD booting from Debian. Desktop from Gnome. (Both of these have crashed atleast one time)

    You should see my schools photoshop course. Oh my fucking god it is terrible. It makes me cringe. Not to sound arrogant, but I do not take that course since I know more than enough about Adobe programs. But whenever I enter the computer classroom I see some of their stuff on the pc's and sometimes printed out.

    The most terrible and odd things. Somebody took a picture of a forest or whatever, added Indiana Jones and Luke Skywalker with photoshopped light sabers and a couple of pedo bears in the background. :byodood:

    Odd, the same happened to me today, minus the logo scanning part. I made a joke about my Desire Z being a superior piece of technology to his iPhone (with my IRL trollface) and he didn't manage to find an argument about how his iPhone was any better than my phone :smug:

    It does look flimsy but I don't think it is.

    It's been 2 months now and the phone is still in 1 piece, however my dad's LG Quantum Optimus is on the verge of breaking in half.

    Edited:

    Oh and the physical keyboard is godsend. On-screen keyboards are such a bitch to type on.

    You do realize the iPhone 4 has better specs than the Desire Z, right?

    The physical keyboard isn't worth the downgraded specs, especially with the increased chance of breaking your phone.

    Not quite content, but still funny:

    My school's "Network Security Club" got some servers to use. The newest one is a Pentium III Xeon. The oldest uses a single Pentium (before Xeons existed). Each of them weighs enough to be used as a boat anchor.

    More specs (only what I could find out; the RAM was unlabeled):
    One of them has three power supplies, each ~250W.
    One of the hard drives (three of them, in RAID 5) is a 3.5", full-height, SCSI drive. Total capacity: 4.3GB. Someone jokingly suggested using that machine as a file server.
    The only one we tried to boot failed, and will have to be booted from floppy.

    Well, Network Security is a major here. I'm not majoring in it - I'm just in the club to improve my networking skills. TBH, it isn't really that interesting - I did a short presentation on OpenBSD to them, and had to explain what a firewall did.

    I've been thinking of starting a game development club - I've talked to a few people about it, and most of them are interested.

    I'm so jelly, I can't believe you guys got a Network Security Club, the closest thing to that in my school is Facebook Club. :saddowns:

    Seriously, all they do for 3 hours is facebooking.

    My school isn't that bad. The guy I talked to the most about the idea plays Minecraft during class, and is the OP of this suggestion thread on the Minecraft forums, and did all the graphics for that. He's also done some good spritework, has a few actual bits of art that are decent, and has composed quite a bit of game-style music.

    Another guy I talked to plays Unreal Tournament. On the PS3, admittedly, but he's no codfag.

    While there are quite a few CoD players around, none of them seemed particularly interesting in making a game.

    Apparently the job I'm going to be working in a week has a network switch under the desk.

    There are no internet restrictions on this switch for service and testing purposes. People actually bring towers down there and update Steam.

    I only know of two others in my school who have Steam accounts, and they're both my best friends. One of them is experienced in C++, the other is a S.TA.L.K.E.R. junkie, and I know a bit about Hammer. We've always joked about making a source mod, though we might actually be on the verge of starting one because I got the Stalker Junkie to make a Facepunch account.

    My friends an I went through that phase of wanting to create a source mod... So we did... Half way into it we realized the source engine wasn't designed to do what we really wanted to, how we wanted to. 5 Years later I believe my friend is still working on an engine to use.

    Long story short: Be careful and don't get sucked in.

    Speaking of tutorials what's so bad about 3kikphilip or however you spell his usermame?
    He always tells people to use tools which generally aren't advisable to use like carve and hollow. He tells people to do things in inefficient ways also.

    He teaches shortcuts that are never good for long-term mapping habits, and lead to really messy first maps for a lot of people. Usually those people find the Facepunch mapping forum, and then they have to tell that new person to break those habits.

    Carve/Hollow tool instead of Clip, etc.
