"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

If they are the 680/690 those are still comperable to a 960/960SLI, so $150-$200 for something like a 690 is reasonable, but really AMD cards usually are cheaper then their nvidia counterparts used.

There really isn't that much wrong with this remark. The only devices which use that cable are iPads and iPhones basically, and by specifying 6 they're saying they don't want one of the older wide plugs from iPhones before the 4. It isn't technically accurate but unless you're currently sitting a tech exam you don't need to be exact and correct all the time, that isn't the point or reality of speech.

Having trouble with dual stack DHCP on my modem so I posted on the TWC forums to see if anyone had run into the same issue since I suspect it's firmware related. Whenever I enable dual stack DHCP on my firewall connected to the modem it throws the modem in a looping reboot cycle until I remove IPv6 DHCP.

 

The only response I've received so far:

"Paste a traceroute to google"

 

I really want to slap this person. I can't stand it when people who either didn't read the issue or don't understand the problem think they know what they are talking about and chime in.

Reminds me of all those Newbs at school who upon seeing my phone isn't an iPhone say, "Is that a Samsung?" FOR GOODNESS SAKE SAMSUNG ISN'T THE ONLY ANDROID PHONE MAKER THEY DON'T EVEN MAKE THE OS!!!

 

Typical iPhone user brain:

 

 

public class iPhoneUserBrain {

 

        public static void main(String[] args) {

 

                    String phone = "not-iPhone";

                    if (!phone.equals("iPhone")) {

                               System.out.print("Is that a Samsung?");

                    }

       }

so this one time I was hanging out with my friend who is the manager at a tech shop by where I live and a girl comes in and buys a 2tb hard drive. we let her know that we install hard drives for $1 (the cost of the sata cable we use) and she says "just because I am a woman does not mean I cant work on computers" and leaves in a huff. two days later she comes back in saying that the HDD is not working so we take the computer in to look at it, we open it and the HDD is nowhere to be seen, so we ask her where it is. and it turns out that she scanned it and put the scanned image on her desktop to install the drive. and to top that off she threw away the drive she paid almost $200 for and she wanted us to give her a new one.
