I suppose we finally have the proof that Bee = NBee....
Here's a nickel, sonny. Go buy yourself a real computer...
I feel bad for these youngsters! They'll never get to experience the joys of COBOL on a mainframe, never know the bliss of starting simultaneous INGRES queries and then going outside to play football while the Vax thrashes. They'll never feel the warmth given off by a line printer spewing 2000 pages of log files you accidentally printed. Woe to them!
I think there will be two SHOCKING REVELATIONS!
Hi, my name is Mr. Fibbldywidget and.... I killed Hogger!
At first it was just for a quest.He was tough, but it was a fair fight.
Then I levelled to 80.
And I killed him again. and Again... Hundreds of times! I couldn't stop myself! It had become fun!
Next week I'm going into Westfall. I heard about a guy in a ship in the Deadmines...
You're kidding, right? I was an Apple tech during and after the Power Computing era. The Power Computing machines were an absolute nightmare to fix. sharp edges, shitty hardware, etc etc.

My time's as valuable as yours, if you don't feel like doing some digging, don't. You got the link, do what you will with it.
Wikipedia's your friend. Minimal work is required not to suck at teh internets.
Remind me to prefold your TP for you too.
Had you taken the time to do a little research, you'd realize the comment wasn't specific to the netbook but to the fact that you CAN build things other than a desktop machine and have them be respectable. Of course, that would require someone not spoonfeeding you.
I beg to differ.
...let the inmates run the asylum. I for one welcome our monkey-poo-flinging overlords!
Well, considering the application they're running, ie a discussion board, I doubt they'd have 30TB of data. In this particular situation, I think it's a viable solution. My point was that if they're worried about their data, they shouldn't have it accessable via the intertubes =p. Ymmv, but if it was me, and I had 30TB of data, I wouldn't be backing it up remotely over the net anyway.
