    Have you tried sending them physical copies of the notice?

    That seemed to work the last time I had to announce something company-wide...

    Can't, our branch covers the whole province, so half our reps and managers are working from home, I don't think my boss would like it if I started fedexing out all these notices!

    my girlfriend refers to storage on a phone as data. like she says im running out of data on my phone she said to me once. my response was "well just be light on it for the rest of the month there are only a few days till the next month" being as tech illeterate as she is, she said okay and things where fine. then a week later when her billing period refreshed she asked me why it wasnt fixed yet. i told her to contact her provider is must be a mistake on their end or something im not entirely sure i can do anything for you. of course after contacting the provider they assured her her data was renewed and that nothing was wrong. so the next morning she says that her data was renewed but her phone still doesnt show it. i finnaly told her to give me her phone so i can look at it. turns out data meant the god damned storage! i had to explain to her what data means in terms of smart phones, then i had to explain that she had too much shit on the phone. of course she never deleted anything and to this day still refers to storage as data. i dont even know why anymore but i just get really irritated whenever she says data. just the word sets me off.
     
    so its safe to say i offically have a trigger. i can now use the excuse "YOUR TRIGGERING ME!!!!!"

    "Can you insert the SCART Cable to the back of my pc, please?
    - .. The scart cable?
    > Yes, the scart cable.
    - Does your computer have a scart cable input?
    > Well duh, all computers do!
    - I have NEVER heard of any PC's with a scart input!
    > *Shows me the power cord* Scart cable!
    - No, that's the power cable, you use that to power up your PC. A scart cable is a video cable for old consoles, VHS and so on.
    > Oh how wrong you are, google it and I'll prove you wrong.
    - *Googles it*
    > NO IT'S WRONG! SPELL IT WITH A 'K'!
    - *Spells it "skart"* Well what do you have to say now?
    > I hate you for being right about this."

    Yeah spilling water on a phone that you made a massive deal out of is pretty damn embarrassing.

    DigitalHermit reacted to SSL in Best DAC for the Dollar   
    Wow.
     
    Let me just point out a few things:
     
    The vast, vast majority of headphone amps are voltage sources. They will not clip unless they have excess gain. When determining the power and voltage requirements for a given listening level you have to know a few things. Blanket statements about needing an amp for headphones over 32 ohms are wrong and NOT good generalizations because they ignore too many determining factors: What the desired listening level actually is The sensitivity of the headphone (db/V) The impedance of the headphone The power output of the amp at the impedance of the headphone Obviously, running an amp into clipping is bad. Why you claim anyone would need to do this is beyond me. Most DACs have a dynamic range in the area of (100-110dB). Don't be fooled by marketing that claims things like 124dB. This is basically at the extreme limit of what it is possible for hardware to do and you will normally pay serious cache for such meaningless specs. 17-18 bits is more than sufficient. Integrated audio can easily provide high bit depth and sample rate output. You don't need a fancy DAC if you want to watch a BluRay.

    Speaking of amps…you need to switch yours to low gain, because you're a bit on the loud side.

    kono sabarashi is another grab at the "adventurers questin' to level up in another world" genre but it's more of a slapstick version of all of them
     
    though predictable, I don't think having a strong plot was the intent. It has some endearing stupidity in it though.
     
    I can already tell this is going to be another 13 episode commercial or similar to chestia and the dungeon raiders with no actual plot and not even a vague suggestion of a resolution.

    all 3 of the main characters are essentially useless so I don't think they'll ever do anything other than awkwardly fidget around
     
    which isn't a bad thing but that makes it pretty clear we're stalling at the starting line.

    One of my biggest gripes with the new update is the new editor. I always used the raw BBCode editor on the old forum and I find it much more convenient to use than a WYSWYG editor.

    I just started taking Intro To Information Technology this semester (Freshman year highschool) and the teacher is an idiot. He says that the CPU is the tower part of the computer. He says that Steve Jobs invented the GUI. And when you try to correct him you are wrong. There was this one time he told us there are 1000MB in a GB. I said well its not exactly 1000 right. And he replied well its more like 900. SCREW YOU!!!!!!!!!! That is all. End Rant.
