  1. Haha nerds.


    Yeah Boizzzzz


    32GB RAM is beautiful.



    this is on the 4C 8T 3550H laptop.

    1. Pascal...


      You're running Ubuntu on the Laptop but not on the Desktop ?

    2. Windows7ge


      I'll see your 32GB and raise you 512GB




      I shouldn't actually share this it's a bit of a depressing moment...


  2. Aluminium was scammed.


    Aluminium sad.


    Aluminium purchased a 4TB 2.5 inch HDD Seagate Barracuda Compute Drive (Consumer drive).


    Instead what arrived was a Seagate OEM 4TB HDD which was over 1cm thick.


    Thankfully Amazon are happy to refund it.


    Now it’s time to go find what I wanted but from a different seller.

  3. Unfortunately it looks like in the UK it sold out on Steam so UK peeps will need to buy one off a 3rd party. Found some on Amazon starting at £37.95 used or £70 ish new. what a scam.
  4. Purchase Complete 😛.




    Meanwhile the employees at Amex are probably like wtf is this guy buying. 😄

  5. This week is a bad week.


    First there’s the strikes going on at Uni.


    And now City Council is playing games with people’s ability to use Postal voting by not sending postal votes on time to People who are likely to vote for Labour or Lib Dem. 


    What a sham. City council I thought you were better than this. -_-

    4. AluminiumTech


      @Silentprototipe At one point this past week I did have less than $20, yes.

  9. Don’t ask me why one of my villagers is becoming suicidal.....





    Perhaps he’s trying to withdraw from the European Union

    1. OlympicAssEater


      Is that you? 

    2. Pascal...







    I need all the internets to be able to download things.

  11. Oh no.......


    The Linux Foundation has gone woke. Here's to hoping they go broke as well.




    Edit: It looks like the YouTube link isn't being embedded properly.

  12. I got a sneak peak at stuff customers in stores rarely ever see .


    The employee at the local store screwed up and the Ethernet cable plugged into the card reader fell out cos they tried moving the card reader too far away from the stand.


    The card reader, which in this case is made by Ingenico, threw a fit and decided to reboot itself.


    During which time I saw some interesting but scary shit. 

    For one, the card readers are using a proprietary OS with the most potato CPU and ram ever although I don’t know how little ram there is (probably less than 128MB) or how bad the CPU is (probably worse than the CPU in Ti84 calculators).


    For two, the card reader was running the 2017 version of Ingenico’s OS . Not a newer version. This doesn’t surprise me considering not a lot of retailers seem to update their Card readers (Read: This is why it’s hard to find stores which accept Apple Pay or Google Pay above £30) but this situation is still quite bad. Especially considering these devices connect to the internet every time there’s a transaction.


    Three, I know not everybody is into tech or whatever but come on. People who work with equipment should know how to use it properly and quite often the people who work with card machines in their job have no idea how they should use them. Even to the extent that this person tried to tap my Coop card (not a bank card) onto the card reader before realising that wasn’t going to work.


    I don’t even know anymore.

    1. Pascal...


      Probably more than 99 % of the people working in retail are tech illiterate, imo.

  13. By the way, here’s my contribution to Team Trees.



  14. Not gonna lie,  new 16 inch MBP is super sexy especially that NAVI gpu :D.

    1. OlympicAssEater


      But the price Apple slap on 😅

  15. Hello Performance xD.

    Now I really have a fast car. Dw I changed the colour from Orange to Sea Green and fully upgraded it.




    We did a drag race at the LS airport and it beat out @Silentprototipe’s Raiden (Model S knockoff):D which is impressive considering not much else can beat the acceleration of a Raiden let alone match it.


    As we were saying the only real problem with the cyclone is it’s a 2 door so you can’t take the guys with you in it, which is where Raiden is superior cos it’s a 4 door.

    1. Silentprototipe


      Raiden will be back with some very mean tires soon just you watch
