  1. The new razer 14 would be epic to win, simply because I need a new toaster and I think it would be perfect for that.
  2. I can't really remember the thing that brought me to your channel, but i kept coming for the, always entertaining, inappropriate jokes also segways that make zero sense ever on the WAN show.
  3. Telenet, Belgians biggest ISP announced at a press conference that it will invest 500 million over the course of 5 years to update its current infrastructure. They will also create 250new high-tech jobs in the process, the CEO of Telenet stated that the arrival of netflix and 4K were one of thte reasons that they needed to update the infrastructure. The couldn't give any details on the prize just yet. If they pull this of, we will have one of the best networks in Europe. the speeds go from minimum 160megabit to 1gigabit/sec. Great job Telenet! An ISP that realizes that infrastructure is freaking important to keep up with technology.

  4. There has been a second shooting near Fergusson. I think gunning him down and killing him on the spot is waaay over the top. Couldm't they have just shot him in a leg? Or used a taser? Or used pepperspray? Or anything non lethal at all? What are these guys thinking?? I'm not from the US, but i can feel the tension from 3000 miles away for crying out loud! I don't know how the Fergusson police is going to solve this... I'm not saying the victim wasn't a criminal, because he was, but gunning him down on the streets is not okay. Not okay at all. A video has been released as well.
  5. Belgium has a policy on this. It's illegal to pirate here, but they said in a public statement that they're not going after individual users, but big uploaders. Kinda like drugs: don't imprison the user, imprison the dealer type of thing. I guess it's okay
  6. Buy every politician and force them to use this superpower known as: common sense. Buy a skilodge in the Swiss Alps, donate to hospitals for research, invest in local businesses, basically become the sopranos.
  7. I live in Belgium so we have to deal with Quick around here, which is why places like this are starting to pop in college towns, i present: BURGER FOLIE, the gourmet burger restaurant.
  8. As you all know, the conflict is Gaza is spinning rappidly out of control. This topic doesn't question who is right or wrong, but simply honors the volunteers who put in 12 - 24 hour shifts to save lives. What these people go through every day is beyond me. Respect. Open Letter: Mads Gilbert, a doctor in Gaza’s largest hospital – al-Shifa – writes an open letter as the Palestinian death toll rises steeply. Dearest friends, The last night (19-20 July) was extreme. The ‘ground invasion’ of Gaza resulted in scores and carloads with maimed, torn apart, bleeding, shivering, dying – all sorts of injured Palestinians, all ages, all civilians, all innocent. The heroes in the ambulances and in all of Gaza’s hospitals are working 12-24 hour shifts, grey from fatigue and inhuman workloads (without payment at all in Shifa hospital for the last 4 months), they care, triage, try to understand the incomprehensible chaos of bodies, sizes, limbs, walking, not walking, breathing, not breathing, bleeding, not bleeding humans. HUMANS! Now, once more treated like animals by ‘the most moral army in the world’ (sic!). My respect for the wounded is endless, in their contained determination in the midst of pain, agony and shock; my admiration for the staff and volunteers is endless, my closeness to the Palestinian sumud [steadfastness] gives me strength, although in glimpses I just want to scream, hold someone tight, cry, smell the skin and hair of the warm child, covered in blood, protect ourselves in an endless embrace – but we cannot afford that, nor can they. Ashy grey faces – Oh NO! Not one more load of tens of maimed and bleeding, we still have lakes of blood on the floor in the ER, piles of dripping, blood-soaked bandages to clear out – oh – the cleaners, everywhere, swiftly shovelling the blood and discarded tissues, hair, clothes, cannulas – the leftovers from death – all taken away… to be prepared again, to be repeated all over. More then 100 cases came to Shifa in the last 24 hours. Enough for a large well trained hospital with everything, but here – almost nothing: no electricity, water, disposables, drugs, operating room tables, instruments, monitors – all rusted and as if taken from museums of yesterday’s hospitals. But they do not complain, these heroes. They get on with it, like warriors, head on, enormously resolute. And as I write these words to you, alone, on a bed, my tears flow, the warm but useless tears of pain and grief, of anger and fear. This is not happening! And then, just now, the orchestra of the Israeli war-machine starts its gruesome symphony again, just now: salvos of artillery from the navy boats just down on the shores, the roaring F16, the sickening drones (Arabic ‘Zennanis’, the hummers), and the cluttering Apaches. So much made in and paid for by the US. Mr. Obama – do you have a heart? I invite you – spend one night – just one night – with us in Shifa. Disguised as a cleaner, maybe. I am convinced, 100 per cent, it would change history. Nobody with a heart AND power could ever walk away from a night in Shifa without being determined to end the slaughter of the Palestinian people. But the heartless and merciless have done their calculations and planned another dahyia onslaught on Gaza. The rivers of blood will keep running the coming night. I can hear they have tuned their instruments of death. Please. Do what you can. This, THIS cannot continue.

  9. Good for them i guess, curious what they come up with and if their businessmodel holds on this time
  10. So Verizon is at it again i guess. I don't live in the US, but it looks like the big, mean ISP's aren't the only ones to blame here. I don't quite understand the graph completely, but it looks like Netlfix is using congested lines on purpose. Here's the article http://www.theverge.com/2014/7/10/5888239/verizon-netflix-congestion What do you think? Grts Pieter
  11. Since my group of friends isn't exactly the hardcore gamer kind of group (we do play AOE2 though) i decided i had to make new friends who play more different games! I currently have 2 friends on hearthstone and this is ofcourse far to little. Feel free to add me on steam/hearthstone... BattleTag: HappyFeet #24176 SteamID: pieterdewolf93 Grts Pieter
  12. I'm thinking UBI and Microsoft are having a bet to see how far they can push customers at this point
  13. I live in Belgium, our national team finally qualified for the first time since 2002 so the hype here is insane and i absolutely, 100% love it i think i watched almost every game so far. The Netherlands winning from Spain with 5-1, Costa Rica defeating Uruguay with 3-1. The sport in itself isn't that spectacular at all, but the drama and the atmosphere around it is what makes it such a beautiful game
  14. Cameo for Gabe would be the most epic thing in the world...
  15. Who saw the first episode and what did you think? For those of you who haven't heard about the show, here's the wikipedia intro: I liked it, the setting is spot on, the cast looks nice and it has got the right amount of drama and mystery already Opinions please! Trailer:
  16. I think it's more up to the person playing the game than the aspect of"gaming" itself that determines if someone is social or not. I know a lot of guys who log a lot of hours into a game, yet i can still hang out with them and have a drink every week you can do both you know.
  17. Is pre-ordering AAA titles still a thing? I mean no offense at all, just curious. I guess everyone is starting to figure out that even highly hyped games aren't flawless, let alone work at launch date. (simcity anyone?) I hope for the sake of PC gamers that everyone stops pre-ordering, it's a joke at this point.
  18. Catered to the needs of noobs? Well play it on "realistic" difficulty then. The driving, I agree that it's ridiculous, but at the same time. I think the game does so many things right as well. Like you said, the combat system is great, hacking is quite fun and the story, while not great, is entertaining. And the multiplayer is ridiculously for to me. It's not the game the hype made it up to be, but it's still one of the best games this year so far.
  19. Guess what, company's like money. Like everyone else. Console gamers are still the biggest market for developers, whether you like that or not. Ubisoft makes fantastic franchises and you all know it, assassins creed, farcry, the splinter cell series, rayman... The list is way longer than this, quit whining about the handling of a damn car, the game is not about the handling of a car... quit whining.
  20. Hi there! The main purpose pf this rig is to game at 1080p on a budget, i think i have all the parts i need, suggestions are always welcome! I live and shop in Belgium.

BTW, i have a spare1TB HDD
  21. Hi guys! So i just finished watching Logan's video about the new gigabyte laptops and they look sweet! Just the right amount of features and horsepower without getting to bulky or heay. I was wondering where i could buy one? I can't find them in Belgium. If anyone finds a site where i could buy one that doesn't have ridiculous shipping fees that would be great Grts Pieter
