    Wtf ._. Really strippolte. That doesn't make any sense.
    That's a "crude middle white male the world revolves around me because I have enough mean where I can wear a suit and people have to listen to what I say" sort of demeaning misuse of current privilege that a fair amount of people like that (I've seen women do this too and are just as nasty about it) have been doing for eons.

    It wasn't supposed to make "sense". Its sole intent was to be demeaning, especially to the young ladies that worked there. That's the point.

    Dumb **** moment of the day:

    So I'm in a Chipotle after my water search in the supermarket and there's this white middle aged make in a suit placing an order before me. How he's ordering, seems to be a regular there. Ho-hum, I don't care at this point. So he leaves and the girls at the cashier - one appears to be African-American, the other Hispanic, both seems to be mid 20s, are talking.

    So old wise-*** is a regular and make the following comment supposedly in jest a few moments earlier: "you know you guys should change the name of the place...to Stripotle."

    So the Hispanic girl was like "I'm sorry, I missed the joke". Her colleague was like, "I never laugh at his wisecracks whenever he's in here."

    And I'm in my in head going: yup, middle aged white men in suits...making sexist jokes at women of color since the 1500s...

    I've got a racist friend who hates black people. He hasn't seen one, ever. But he still hates them. Great.

    We are usually looking for discounts deeper than that😀
    You and I started the whole "Discount Double check" craze.

    Seriously though, I'd never pick Best Buy as a top place to get an unlocked phone. Best deal I got in Best Buy was the Z3 and that was on sale via Best Buy Business. I'd use online retailers such as Expansysusa and B&H in the US for brand new phones. Love Expansysusa... they had the X 2015 32GB model for $360 ($10 in shipping). Of course there is a site in Hong Kong that has the G4 for $325 + $35 shipping brand new that I've used in the past with great success.

    So these are the style deals, Driver, I'm used to...

    Well, I have no racist friends, because if you're racist you aren't a friend of mine. Gotta draw the line somewhere, and I have a few lines like those.

    Have a math test tomorrow. We're doing matrices. It's really not that hard for me, as a matter fact it's a piece of cake. I've got no issues with understanding how to solve these problems, but the thing where I make a mandatory mistake is freaking adding. I'll have to take it slowly. I have around 90 minutes to solve 5 problems, should be enough time.

    He's not really a friend, but is more than a plain acquaintance. I mean, I don't like him that much, but the guys I go out with kinda do, so, I can't complain. He also has a weird sense of humor passing every possible line. It's way beyond black humor. He even pissed me off a few months ago for making a sick joke about my neighbour who killed himself.

    For the record, i hate punks who play multiplayer on Asphalt 8 and like to down people down at the beginning of the race. Why don't you actually try to drive first and if we bump in the home stretch and someone gets wiped out, then so be it.

    It is punk **** to me when people who cannot drive play for knockouts like that...

    Good for you to be able to stomach that. My lines are not tolerant of that at all...even if it means i have to give up someone who i like whose tolerant of that.

    Yup. Like I said, everyone is different and everyone has their standards. I have my lines i stick to firmly on things like this.

    Good luck.

    My favorite was high school account exams. The teacher gave us 2(!) problems. Of course you are to end up with a profit and loss statement and balance sheet at the end of each. But there were so much work in between (you had to balance books and open and close the right accounts and show all this first).

    That was the only class I've ever been in and felt i needed more time to finish and it was a 3 HOUR exam!

    I saw them in Best Buy. Man are they awesome! Will look forward to a mini review ha
    The Best Buy in town did not have them, neither did Staples nor Office Depot. I drove down last night to the MSFT store (same place where I checked out the SP4, Surface Book and Lumia 950XL when they were launched) and played with it. Liked it enough to order it.

    Well... I decided not to wait for the Pascal cards to come out later this year... (who knows when) I bit the bullet and bought a video card for my gamer build. I had this money burning a hole in my pocket, and I figured I could get something decent now, and still upgrade to a next gen Pascal card later. I know the flagship cards will come out first (like the Titan line - $1000+) which I won't be able to afford anyway... Then later, probably late summer, or even fall/winter before the mid cards arrive.
    So I decided to get the best bang for my buck right now. I got the EVGA GTX 970 4GB 256bit Super Superclocked ACX 2.0 card for $329 at Best Buy.

    While I was there, I also picked up a Samsung V-NAND 850 EVO SSD 256GB for $95 which will be my first SSD in the desktop gaming machine. I'll be doing a clean Win10 install on this, then recommissioning my WD 10k rpm Velociraptor spinner to game installs and quick storage (along with my other large storage drives)

    Every time i use my Maxx i curse Moto as to why they didn't put a better camera in this thing.

    I always find it interesting where consumers don't care about the the right mix of things...they care about what they're told is the right mix of things to purchase....

    Well I managed to get the NAS to work. What a pain. The only way was to use the IP address and then enter the password. Thing is I'm still not confident...

    I also uninstalled the stupid Synaptics software as it keeps resetting every time the computer restarts. Hopefully it doesn't install itself.

    The annoying part is that if I had done a fresh install instead of an upgrade I probably wouldn't have these issues. Upgrades suck.

    My mom loves peanut brittle. I never cared for it, but I love roasted peanuts in the shell.

    I loved going to Ground Round restaurant when I was a kid. They served buckets of shelled peanuts. Diners would toss the shells on the floor and eat the peanuts.

    Um.. So now I have a new problem. Keep in mind that I've been building my own PCs since the DOS days, (pre plug and pray days, where we'd have to configure IRQ and DMA jumpers on our hardware to work) so this isn't my first rodeo... I installed the new video card last night, put everything back together, hit the power button and... Nothing. No post, beep, nadda damn thing! Grrrrr now I know my PSU "should" be enough to handle the new card (it's a thermaltake black widow 850W gaming PSU) but... It IS 4-5 years old. So either my PSU gave up... Or, I fried my motherboard. &#%K

    I tried putting my old video card back in and same thing... Nothing. So something has definitely happened here. I guess the first thing would be to replace the PSU. Wish me luck!

    That's very odd. Normally if a PSU goes it makes a noise (typically a capacitor going). A 4-5 year old PSU shouldn't just go if it's of any decent quality.

    Have you tried posting without a video card and see if anything happens?

    Yes. I just pulled the PSU out of the system and tested it with the jumper trick; Fan comes on, so it seems like my problem is elsewhere. I tried re-seating the memory sticks one by one, re-seating all the cables etc etc.. Still nothing. Just the blue power light on the m/b (which doesn't tell me squat)
    I guess I'm motherboard shopping now...

    Have you tried to do a reset on the motherboard BIOS? Some boards have a jumper that allow you to clear the BIOS. This may help. Other than that it would seem your board is gone. Though still a bit odd... unless the new video card was too powerful for the MB but that doesn't seem right.
