Tech Confession Time!

Recommended Posts

whenever I recover data on a person's computer when the computer is dead(motherboard, CPU, etc) and not worth fixing, I "forget" to reinstall their HDD if they ask for the computer back. then I perform a DOD secure erase(10x full overwrite) and set it on the shelf. their data is safe and a good HDD is not wasted.

I guess the redeeming bit is that I don't charge for the hard drive if I install it in another person's machine when their drive dies.

I dropped my PC off my desk while it was on...


Where do bad folks go when they die?

I call nvidia nuhvidia

I bought an i5 4430 for gaming

Up until two months ago I thought the only plus side of a ssd was no moving parts

Up until 3 years ago I thought apple was superior to all... please dont smite me... but now I dont own a single apple product except for a 4th gen ipod touch that I havent touched for 6 months.

I use adblock

I pirated stardock fences, all my music, most of the movies I have watched, and a few games.

I will post more after I have thought of more sins


I am a beautiful person who is a good idea to have a good time to time and money to buy a new job and I need some help with the same time for the first time in the middle of the day.

I believe it's the same as posting a link, they're supposed to embed themselves.

I filled an RMA request with Mushkin thinking my ram kit was being dumb since one stick was causing error 55. I've fixed the issue by clearing cmos and starting from scratch, should have done this first. :l

I almost bought a Xbox one.

I bought a PS4 for the sole purpose of playing FIFA (soccer) on it, because the PC community for it sucks.

I bought a graphics card from ebay. Used. At least it worked.


You would think Ubisoft would support the Bulldozer based architectures more given their digging themed names like bulldozer, Piledriver, Steamroller and Excavator.

Not just the community, but the game itself is literally a shite console port. It's not even treated as next gen. In fact, the XBOX 360 and PS3 copies look the same, if not better, than the pc. What can you expect? It's EA

i think they are doing "nextgen" on PC this year for FIFA 15, but still console community > Pc community on FIFA not to mention all the cheaters and such on PC.

But on console, there's an absolute ton of scammers and coin traders...

scammers are not hard to avoid, just use common sense.

Coin traders is something that probably wont go away, even if they managed to ban autobuyers all together. Where there is a demand there will be a supply.

Nah. It ain't too bad. The only thing GTX 650 is hated for is for being bundled with (overpriced) prebuilt "gaming PCs" with top of the line CPU (or not-so top of the line), but a medicore GPU like GTX 650.

 

But hey, 2 years ago I bought a 550Ti, as used, for 100€. Those things can be found on internet auction sites for ~40€ today...


Never trust my advice. Only take any and all advice from me with a grain of salt. Just a heads up.

My friend bought one of those "gaming" PCs with that GTX650... Still better than the GT330, I guess. NVIDIA's gaming line starts at GTX x6x, so it's pretty close.
