Comment Re:What engineering is really about. (Score 1) 407

I had a similar experience in the Navy too. For my certification in job I did from 2002-2004, my equipment was all randomized, every single setting and option was made to be something just ridiculous from normal, things were unplugged, shut off, and scrambled. I had to get everything back to 100% perfect functionality in less than 2 hours. Failure to achieve 100% was failure, kthxbye.

Comment Re:An F-15 is much bigger than a P-51. OMG BLOAT! (Score 1) 452

I built my latest rig approximately a year ago, and I have zero intention of upgrading in the next 12 months, and would even go as far to say that there's a 5% chance I will upgrade prior to 24 months from now. We're not really seeing tremendous leaps with hardware these days, nothing that would invalidate a $1000 custom rig for a long, long time.

How may I help you today? 4:59:20 PM CustomerChristian Hi there, I was reading an article about how amazon refunded the microsoft OS price for a netbook that was purchased. 4:59:35 PM CustomerChristian I was wondering whether Newegg would do that on a laptop I ordered, because I don't accept the EULA. 5:00:34 PM AgentJeremy We do not offer this return. 5:01:02 PM CustomerChristian Didn't think so. :) Perhaps one day when EULA's are challenged in court we can get this fixed. Until then, viva la microsoft tax eh? ;) 5:01:49 PM AgentJeremy Do you have any other questions, or is there anything else I can assist you with today? 5:01:53 PM CustomerChristian Nope, thanks.
