  1. Hmm...only a 30-40 minute drive from my place... EDIT: Auguts 21st is a Friday, which means it's WAN Show day. Do we all get to be on the WAN Show?!?! :lol:
  2. I was thinking a shirt that just says "35% Turnip" with a picture of a turnip.
  3. Darn, was hoping for a little more than that.
  4. Help me out in figuring out how much I can sell the following parts for (separate or together). CPU: Intel Core i7-930 MB: Gigabyte X58A-UD3R RAM: 12GB DDR3 Patriot Sector 7 GPU: 2 x MSI GTX 580 Lightning Xtreme PSU: Corsair HX650W Corsair H80
  5. I solved it. Type in DISCOVERY on this page: http://www.certitudes.org/certitude?wp=GC5K5Z7
  6. As the solution says "Solving a cryptogram which uses a simple substitution cipher with pen and paper, rather than using an online tool, is not particularly difficult."
  7. Cipher text: Substitution cipher: Plain text answer: I solved it by plotting frequency of letters as @LoneRangerS suggests on the previous page. Then just substitute letter by letter by looking for likely words. MATLAB script I wrote, if anyone is interested: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9iasfl8pt38vhw9/Cipher.m?dl=0
  8. One time the TSA thought the heat spreaders on my RAM was some weird knife thing....Sigh...
  9. I agree that "scrapyard" can be any budget as long as you're buying used parts. The whole point is to get better performance than spending the same amount of money on new parts. And nice deal on that 290X. I'd be hesitant on buying used power supplies and hard drives though.
  10. Some people have bad experiences with certain companies, other have good ones. I've had nothing but good experiences with Corsair support. 1. The hot swap PCB in my 800D case was DOA, so I contacted Corsair and they sent me a new one at no charge and it arrived within days. 2. My Vengeance 2000 suffered from the cracking headband issue and Corsair sent me a pair of Vengeance 2100 as a replacement. I had to send in the broken pair, but they even let me keep a few of the parts, such as cables, ear cups, etc. 3. I accidentally broke my front panel USB 3.0 port when I yanked on a cable (after many years, definitely out of warranty) and Corsair sent me a complete front panel replacement free of charge. Again, it only took a few days to get to me. On a side note, I've used 3 different Corsair power supplies and I haven't had any problems with them.

  12. If you purchase it in person at the store just tell them which retailer (MemoryExpress, Newegg, CanadaComputers, DirectCanada, TigerDirect, etc.) has a lower price and they will check the competitor's website. The item has to be in stock at the competitor for them to approve it. Also the part # / model # has to match exactly. If you order (for in-store pickup) on the NCIX website, in your shopping cart you can add price match requests for each item with the price and the link to the competitor's website. Then they will email you telling you if the price match is approved or not. I think this is much easier in my opinion. I've only had one price match (for thermal compound) rejected in-store, but usually they are pretty good at it. One time NCIX actually gave me a lower price than the competitor, but I can't remember what item I was buying.
  13. Does price beating count? Cause you could find the lowest price from one place but buy from someone like MemoryExpress which BEATS the price instead of matching. This could save some money.
  14. Switch to microUSB, then don't include the charger. Most people own multiple microUSB chargers (me included). Side note: (non-Apple) Phones should stop coming with chargers for the same reason.
  15. Steam in-home streaming box please!
  16. I always thought DirectCanada and NCIX were the same company. Either that or they're best buddies with offices in the same building. I usually get NCIX to price match DirectCanada. Maybe call them on the phone instead? That might get you a faster response.
  17. I had that problem with my SSDs. It sped up again after reinstalling windows.
  18. I definitely like that power supply. The quietness.
