Did slashdot just die and silently come back up? I was getting 503's and "offline mode", logged in and out for ages, then suddenly its just working again. Anybody else experience anything like that?
Seriously, insightful?? Sarcastic, funny maybe, but I was definitely not being insightful! Next I'll be accused of having sock puppets!
You need to move all of those tables and chairs, I am trying to land...
I really, really hope apk will come on and tell me how "manly" I'm looking these days!
What, so in your own words, Mars shows no signs of life, except for farting, and Venus is very stormy and no-one can touch (land on) her? Sounds about right!
That is correct. A failed assumption that mine would be the first, and last post - which would have scored Insightful had it actually been first and only post, since he's searching for rocking-horse shit, as the ensuing discussion shows!
In hacker terms, you may as well have the hole open for half a century, this definitely calls for a re-install!
Does your "portable" LAN rig (including monitor) fit in a rucksack or panniers (bike rack)? Does it have decent h/k speakers and a meaty subwoofer built in for train journeys? Does it boot (and login) in under 30 seconds from power off, less than that from hibernate?
These trade-offs alone, along with the ability to game or perform (I have an Edirol and portable 12V PA) for two hours without the mains, make the NVidia 9700M GTS seem quite impressive, actually!
They're bigger because they contain more useful things...
I only joked about being smug because of the game/set/match concept, I'm not that cruel, and yours really was a very constructive comment!
Agreed, game / set / match, and helping him use the advice you have given to teach the class as well, earns you extra points.
Even with points deducted for smugness...
You win 1 internets.
Believe it or not, I sincerely believe that this introduction was his way of eating the humble pie, in advance - prostrating himself at our altar and asking for help. We should give him a break!
I would mod you up, but my recent post count isn't good enough, and I'm not being allocated any mod points. This should solve the problem; though not for you, unfortunately!
