  1. Programmable, Non-graphing Calculator?

    Just found the HP 35s, which claims to be programmable. Disclaimer: HP is fond of RPN calculators, but they're built like tanks. The HP calculator my dad used in college is still very much alive and kicking. http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/hp-35s-scientific-calculator-p-f2215aa-aba--1
  2. Programmable, Non-graphing Calculator?

    A TI-36 Pro might be a good bet. It's not programmable, but it's got some pretty nice feature sets, including the ability to store up to 8 memory variables...
  3. How to you pay for computer hardware?

    debit card because it's really all i have. eventually i'll get a credit card but not anytime soon
  4. I can't stop pretending to be someone else

    serious responses so far, yes, but a tech forum (even one with well-meaning people) should not be the first place someone goes to receive medical/psychological help under any circumstances, really (and i spend a lot of time on a forum full of teenagers who post on the forum about their bleeding penis/broken finger/multiple hour long nosebleed before they think about seeing a doctor-- it never really goes well and they only get told "call a doctor?"). best case scenario, OP gets convinced to go and get actual help or maybe just gets a little comfort that he's not as crazy as he might think. OP shouldn't be putting his mental health into the hands of people here and should, as praesi said, talk to his parents about maybe seeing a therapist.
  5. I can't stop pretending to be someone else

    maybe because chances are, none of the people that will reply to this topic are medical professionals
  6. What would you like for Christmas?

    coffee, makeup/skincare, clothes, and money to put towards a galaxy s7
  7. What do you consider "Stealing"

    At the high school I went to, they'd confiscate your phone and your charger if they caught you charging your phone from the wall or from the computers. A couple years ago they nabbed a kid with child porn on his phone because he plugged the phone into one of the computers in the Mac lab, so the high school started really cracking down on students charging their phones on-campus after that.
  8. 200mm Fan Options

    I've got 200mm NZXT fans in my case that are nice and quiet on lower speeds. They aren't PWM as far as I know, though.
  9. Your cables should be fine.
  10. DIY headband repair!? And a poll too!

    Never had a headset break on me like that despite wearing them for about 8+ hours every day, only issues I've had was the typical "sound goes out in one ear" thing. Then again, I've never spent more than about $80 on a pair of headphones, and that $80 pair has lasted me about... 3 or 4 years or so? Also, loving the little knitted cozy for your headphones.
  11. Should I buy more fans?

    4 is more than enough
  12. I'd say motherboard.
  13. How often do you upgrade?

    I used to upgrade my phone every two years, but then Sprint did away with their 2-year contracts, so I don't know when I'll decide to buy a new phone. As for my computer, my current trend is a new one every 5 years or so, but that was mostly back when I'd have to wait for the newest hand-me-down: my dad would get a new PC, so he'd give his old one to my older sister, and I'd get her old one. But I also had my old computer for five or six years before I got my current computer, which I've had for two years so far. But since this one isn't a $600 budget computer like my old one, I'll probably start doing incremental upgrades with it in a couple years or so when I notice it can't keep up as well.
  14. Because you don't contribute anything relevant or of any value to the discussion when you come into the thread and basically say "i don't care lol"
  15. If you don't care, why bother posting? That capacity meter thing actually seems pretty neat. Better hurry up and buy one while they're still in stock, yeah?
