  1. Seems to be a good balance between power efficiency and performance. Can't go wrong with an 850m and an IPS panel. The brushed aluminum is a nice touch.
  2. I've been playing around with the Oculus and it's amazing.
  3. Several Chinese websites are already reporting that the base clock rate of the 4790k is to be set at 4.0 with a boost rate of 4.4. I would expect more information to be leaked within the next few days.
  4. I've worked as a Network Administrator for the last 13 years (I hold a B.S. in Comp Sci, a CCNP and a CISSP). If you have any questions, fire away.
  5. The problem is with the handoff between AT&T and XO (and not the Diablo servers themselves). I know for a fact there is an engineering team working on it with a high priority. It's a complicated problem and the fix is taking longer than expected. I would expect a significant improvement shortly. FYI
  6. A couple years ago, a college student contacted me out of the blue and very politely asked if I could set aside some time to talk about my work and if I had any openings. I was so impressed with how direct and well spoken he was that I went to my HR Director and created an internship. I'll admit that many people are going to brush you off if you try this but, eventually someone will like the gumpshun. On the point of grades; that may be something the HR people will screen but, I seriously doubt it. I've never asked a person about their grades and I've never been asked about mine. Whether or not you graduated (or are still attending) is the only thing anyone will really care about. With resumes, write a cover letter tailored to each job you are applying for. Read up on the employer and find a way to work that information into your cover letter/resume. If I see a well written cover letter, I'll at least give the applicant an interview. Once you're in the room, be confident. You wouldn't be there if they weren't considering you for the job. Make eye contact. Don't be afraid to show you have a sense of humor; nobody wants to work with a robot. After the interview, thank them for their time and don't be afraid to ask questions.
  7. It's developed for AS/400 (iSeries). Edit: Just wanted to add that AS/400 is very much an alive OS and is quite common. I've worked on them personally for over a decade.
  8. I would imagine they use automated installers/scripting or pre-built images. Dell even makes a product that does this called the KBOX.
  9. Sounds like we may be able to expect the higher end ROG boards to show up at Computex in June. http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?46424-Leak-of-new-ASUS-boards-Z97/page4
  10. First, neither Internet browsing history nor cookies would allow someone remote access to your computer (public network or not). They do however provide additional information once a foothold has been established that can be leveraged to gain additional access to other web services you use. That added risk isn't all that significant. Second, if you're concerned about privacy on public networks, only authenticate to webservers using an SSL connection. Third, she's your mother. She created you. Don't argue with her; just nod your head and be nice. Oh, and go clean your room for good measure.
  11. They would most likely give you one that is USB based.
  12. I'm not familiar with that line but, it's possible. If it is a WWAN card, it will have an ESN tag on it somewhere.
  13. You could, just record the ESN as they'll ask you for it. You're most likely better off getting a new broadband card if you were going to get a new contract... most providers will give you one.
  14. This is what I use along with toilet paper: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0047YB3OW/ref=biss_dp_t_asn
  15. It's for Wireless service. You need a contract through a service provider to use it.
