    Jumping from "support reps don't fix shiz" to "just some of them don't fix shiz". Getting ready to hide your posts.

    I need to ask a favor, can someone just make an empty "bin" directory on their webserver? I need it to fix my server.

    No I am not jumping from anyhting to anything, I am simply explaining that I wasn't saying *every last* support rep, but that I actually meant your average corporate call center, which at least from my experience is like this.
    And I am certainly not going to hide my post, you didn't win soem mighty argument here and got me backpedaling, you simply screamed "HEY THIS GUY SAID ALL TECH REPS WITH PHONES DONT FIX SHIT LETS BASH!!!" instead of actually spending a second to think and maybe take it as what it is.

    I don't think he has any benefit from it being on your root, since he can't access that anyway. I am not sure what he wants to do with a remote folder called "bin" either, tho.

    I only have port 80 forwarded to the server in any case, so there's nothing he can do to it.

    professional looking styling, a numpad, a 5400 rpm hdd because i dont need to do anything fancy. lenovos definitely one of the better brands from what i hear

    also 1366 x 768, a good low resolution so i can max games out without them looking bad from a display with a higher native resolution, plus many old games look best at a height of 768

    Apple's phone service use to be great. I could call and have my issues fixed in 5 minutes at the most, now it's just slow and they end up sending you to your closest Apple store...

    Also, TONS of companies use that style of phone service now. It's not just Apple.


    One thing I used to do (not now I have a decent job) is exploit replacement systems from some companies.
    Lots of companies (Apple among them) offer this option called "Advance Replacement" (mentioned earlier with Kindles) where you give them CC details as collateral while they send you a replacement.
    You can buy (Usually for around $5) "virtual" credit cards with only $1 on them, that literally means you can't be charged if you don't return the item. Obviously, this was rather easy to abuse.

    You can always upgrade it.
    6GB of ram should be more than fine for a laptop

    Oh the irony of the AMD Hondo. An AMD low power processor. Hondo was also the name for an Itanium dual processor MCM, it sucked through more power than a dual Pentium 4 Xeon box.

    Is there any way to make Youtube show me 720p in, well, 720p? It gets all distorted when I fullscreen it because my res is slightly larger than 720p, and the large option on youtube isn't 720 pixels tall.

    What is an AMA?
    IAmA = "I am a"
    AMA = "Ask me anything"
    AMAA = "Ask me almost anything"

    Basically you get to ask a person things, and maybe he will reply.

    He made two replies on reddit so far:
    first
    second

    Although i wonder how he's doing it, since reddit keeps breaking

    Yeah, no. As Goz3rr said, it means distributed.

    And as a fun fact, DDoSes can be undeliberate in the part of the actual people doing the attacking because of things like that web-LOIC

    President fucking Obama posted:
    Making sure we stay at the forefront of space exploration is a big priority for my administration. The passing of Neil Armstrong this week is a reminder of the inspiration and wonder that our space program has provided in the past; the curiosity probe on mars is a reminder of what remains to be discovered. The key is to make sure that we invest in cutting edge research that can take us to the next level - so even as we continue work with the international space station, we are focused on a potential mission to a asteroid as a prelude to a manned Mars flight.
    So the president is a troll. Huh.
