    [h2]BY DECREE OF HIS MOST IMPERIAL MAJESTY[/h2]
    From this point forward, let there be no flamewars.

    Let there be no trolling, neither be there hating. Trolls and haters are to be expelled from my domain.

    Let there be no more dildo nonsense throughout my empire. No more discussion of butts, or items designed to be inserted into such. For such is not computer illiteracy, and it is not content.

    All who oppose this imperial decree are to be shunned and shamed. Let their names be anathema; let their posts be ignorelisted.

    I am the Emperor. My will be done.

    I'm going to say this, and no one's going to listen. This thread is about people who think or act like they're tech savvy, and fail miserably. This could be smug kids saying their macbook could run Crysis on decent settings to garner attention, teachers at school spouting out things that make no sense and trying to get away with the "I'm the teacher, I'm right" excuse, or the usual haberdashery and whatnot.

    [h2]Posts everyone is sick of[/h2]
    - Laughing at normal people instead of actual tech-illiterate asshats
    - Stupid, repetitive, or extremely damaging pranks
    - Blind hatred or fanboyism
    - Whining about lack of content


    [h2]NO FUCKING "POST YOUR" CONTENT![/h2]
    Including but not limited to:
    - Speedtests (post here)
    - Speccy
    - Hard drive shit
    - Dropbox

    I just got my Zalman ZM-VE200 (External hard drive with ISO mounting), what should I put on it? I already have ISOs for various XP and 7 installers, Hiren's BootCD, Clonezilla, GParted and the Windows 7 Repair disks. Anything useful and free would be nice.

    If you're using latest Hiren's, also get version 9.
    Version 9 had a lot more nice, cool tools.
    Oh and ophcrack.

    Well got my GPU back (Sent it in a week after christmas)

    You might remember i checked everything, And then brought in an old GPU to check so it wasn't the Mobo. Well i got it back today with a note today, No faults found

    IT WAS THE HDMI CABLE AAARGH

    When i used the old one i used a VGA since it didn't have HDMI

    The ONE thing i didn't check. Damn

    I "repaired" a p4 dell about a week ago.
    Got rid of 4 anti viruses, 8 toolbars, set up the speakers and put a password on their wifi for $50. I would have just reformatted it but I don't have an XP disc and I didn't feel like waiting.

    Edited:

    Also the disk drive wouldn't open anyway. So either open the disk drive and repair that to or build a usb installer I'd have had to take it home for either.

    I learned a long time ago that placing multiple orders is never a good thing to do. Good thing new egg is nice or I'd have Sli alot sooner and for more $ then planned.

    Did the CD drive have a pinhole to shove a paper-clip into and release the door?

    The door is blocked or something I could hear the drive trying to open. If I actually had the disc for XP I'd have tried the paper clip but I didn't so whatever.

    A human from DHL called to tell me that if I didn't receive my package today, that I would get it tomorrow. I'm not even pissed about the $16 fee I had to pay anymore, that's some good customer service right there.

    On an unrelated note I got a creative sound blaster from the electronics dump that still works. But because of sli and my wifi card I can't use it on my main pc. My only options are to setup this other pc I have lying around to provide wifi for my desktop, do the same thing with my laptop or somehow find the money for a USB wifi device. One thing I've been thinking about is I have a windows mobile 6 (or whatever it's called) phone with wifi I dunno if I could use that as a wifi bridge without it being a pain in the ass. Anyone know anything about windows mobile shit?

    If I had one of those new ones I wouldn't be on an iPhone right now. It's the older one running on an htc touch diamond. I think the main problem is finding a driver for it.
