  1. Oh, did I mention how I scraped an A in maths? やった! My first semester exams didn't go to complete shit! 

    *cough cough* electronics was a D1 however, 1% off a C :/ 

     

    Average GPA as of now: 13.833333, meaning rounding upwards, I can go abroad! :D

    Yeah, I totally don't have a a drawer full of portable consoles that I no longer really play on (but did put plenty of time onto all of em, easily have 2K+ hrs per console) Glares at a drawer across the room, which contains a PS vita (with Henkaku), a PSP 3K, DS lite, GBA SP, OG GB and finally, the mother of all: a limited-edition, titty-cam Pika 3DS XL... How about making a SFF out of it?

    What's the Difference?

    ^ And gsync is only supported by Nvidia GPUs while adaptive sync is Intel, AMD and some(?) Nvidia GPUs.

    Needed a harness. Tried that harness last Thursday and immediately knew a needed it...noow. Somehow, magically, an e-tailer I've ordered before put it on sale (44% off). You know, with almost half of its price slashed, kinda went "GIB MEH NAW!" mode and as I was paying for shipping anyway, threw in a belay and carabiner (that's also on sale) as excessive equipment doesn't exist in the world of climbing . *cough cough* I may have also placed an order for a made-to-order Higonokami, hence wallet is in absoulte despair but I'm sure @King Poet -senpai would be proud of me...たぶん

    Hehe, I'm currently living in student accommodation so I've already "moved out" . To be fair, I probably am being unfair but when for 11.5/12 months every year, for 15 years, you're interacting with the same sole parent, it does get very tedious and thus, I'm in no rush to go back.

    @LukeSavenije Pfftttttt, getting locked down by your parents? If I could have gotten out of our apartment, on the forth floor, with my mother's bedroom 2 metres away from the front door, back in high school, I'm sure you can as well. To be fair, although we have moved to a house some time ago and my bedroom is now only on the first floor/second floor (i.e. the floor above ground floor), I do still have to climb out of my windows whenever I'm home and mother is around, although I've been living by "myself" (>6 months/year) for 3 years plus roughly 3 years with my sister (>5 months/years), my mother still likes locking me down, not to mention how I've been "independent" (i.e. doing at least 2/3rd of all my meals, washing up, cleaning and whatnot) since I was 10, I probably can handle myself completely and utterly fine.

    Ah yes, those days where zMeul, someone else and I would spend hours having civil conversations on x topics. Those were fun times...

    Oooohhh, this thread seems like it's properly alive again, what have I missed?
  12. First semester exam results (so far) :

     

    Class 1P:

    paper - 42/90 (worth 15% of final grade for this class) 

    Lab exam - 14/20 (10% of final grade) 1P semester 1 overall - 14/25, just a tick off my 60% aim :(

     

    Class 1S:

    Info management class work - 21/22 (worth 8% of final grade of class) 

    HCI class work - 20/22 (8% of final grade of class) 

    Overall grade - 50-53% (C3) 

    Paper - f*cked it. 

     

    Japanese class (irrelevant to my course):

    Aural test 1 - 21/22 (10% of final grade for class) 

    Aural 2 - 19/22 (10%)

    Assessed HW 1 - 19/22 (10%)

    Assessed HW 2 - 17/22 (10%)

    Final grade - D1 

    Paper - roughly 25% (60% of final grade) 

     

    Average GPA so far: 13/22...

     

    Well looks like i did fine in course work shizzle but f*cked, and I really do mean f*cked those three papers...

    How did I even f*ck them that bad? 

     

    On the brightside, my maths and electronics results can easily bring my average back upto 60% as they are worth 2/3rds of my first semester credits.

      HCI is quite difficult. Especially the exam part. I will confess I didn't do great on my HCI end of year exam last year. Thankfully my HCI coursework saved me.

    3. Mr.Meerkat

      Mr.Meerkat

      @AluminiumTech Lets be honest, its just a bunch of common sense however, they want you to answer the question in such a specific way that you kinda have to memorise how they want you to answer it. 

       

      @DildorTheDecent  Unfortunately I fucked electronics (digital and analogue) as well :/

      Again, all the coursework were As but screwed the damn paper. Like the course-work counted for 20% of the final grade and I got 18 out of those 20. However, I ended up with a D1, meaning out of 80 for the paper, I got less than less than 32 (<40%). 

       

      Looks like no more winging from me. Considering winging all my exams in high school ended with these results:

      National 5s: AAAAAABB

      Higher: AAABB

      Advanced highers (equivalent to first year uni): ABB (both Bs were <2% off an A)

       

      Spent me last 6 years in high school doing nothing at all sooooo.....welp?

      @Mr.Meerkat On mine there was also a question asking for a drawing of something and an explanation of features in the drawing. Idek.

  13. Rainbow 6 Siege is what? Almost 80 damn Gigabytes? Even though I may have a 8250U+MX150 laptop now, it simply disnae have the space for R6S...welp? :/ 

     

    Sigh, time to find the cheapest m.2 SATA SSD I can buy then.

      well its not like you will be using the high res textures with an MX150 :P its a huge game though, should probably remove it off my HDD along with Destiny 2 because i never play them

      @Mr.Meerkat The base game is 80GB. The UHD texture pack is an extra ~30.

  14. Oh mai, you do realise in the world of computer parts, £1 = $1 Ever since the brexit vote, including our 20% VAT and slightly higher prices, a $400 component costed £390 (±10) so take it however you like it.
  15. *insert how I paid £110 for my RX470 in 2016* Granted, it was used but all things considered, its still a rather hefty price if we compare it to prices 2 years ago. Kinda shows how badly mining f*cked the market.
