    The first thing I saw on an internet forum was a sticky about how to post images so I've never posted an image from my hard-drive :smug:

    Anyone has a spare ethernet cable? My bunny ate part of it, again.

    Great, pageking and I have no content.

    The servers are down because of the shit that went down at CryTek.

    Go into GGD and look at the Crysis 2 leak thread.

    Slightly late, but my old pentium 4 rig was named Cobra because of the case, and this current computer is named Davinchi for lack of a better name.
    I don't name my hard drives, though.
    I do on my Macs, my first little Indigo iMac G3 was Blueberry Apple(I wasn't that clever at the age of 5), my later Mac Mini was called Tiny (My 500gb external HD[dwarfing the internal 80gb drive] was called Tiny Sr.), and my MacBook Pro is called Sergeant Mayhem. My desktop hasn't gotten good drive names yet.

    Anyone remembers the Sony HandyCam software that prevented your computer from shutting down? Damn that was annoying, and it took quite a while for Sony to patch it...

    Now, how should I electrify my cables, this thing won't stop eating them :argh:

    No, speech recognition.
    Oh wait...
    Illiteracy happens twice. First with the speech recognition (which is pretty funny), and second is the news lady who says "Now, Microsoft does not happy we showed that..."

    Enough with filesmelt. Use tinypic or something that DOESN'T OPEN THE SITE WHEN I ACCIDENTALLY MIDDLE CLICK ON IT.
    Imgur is one of the best image hosts right now. If it can survive everyone on Reddit using it, I'm sure it will be fine for Facepunch. It also has drag and drop support and the ability to rehost images, useful to avoid those anti-hotlinking notices.

    You could open it in notepad and delete a line or two, somewhere in the middle

    that doesnt corrupt it though. should replace all of a certain character or delete the first part so it doesnt open at all, otherwise theres just a hole in the center of the music.

    Open it up in windows notepad then just save it as it is

    Opening a binary file in windows notepad is the most cruel thing you can do to it

    Not really, only if you make sure it changes the encoding. Otherwise nothing happens.

    Switch to ANSI, then save.

    Works fine saving it as it is without changing encoding or anything
    It adds a carriage return after every line feed and replaces NULL's with tabs randomly

    The other part of illiteracy is the female news anchor who claims it was perfectly quiet...

    Anyone who knows anything about filming and audiences is that on camera it may sound extremely quite, but in person you will definitely hear noise.

    It is the same thing when you watch someone give a speech on TV. When there is a clap and they start talking again, they do not wait until after the clapping stops... they actually start talking while there is still some clapping. You just don't hear that clapping. If they waited until the clapping actually stopped, it would seem like the speaker stopped talking, people clapped, no clapping noise while the speaker just stands there in what seems like silence... Then randomly starts talking again.

    Of course, there are those times where the the microphone is so insanely sensitive that it can pick up even the most subtle rustle, when you least want it.

    For LCD's it does nothing, the backlight still is on. If you use plasma tv as your monitor then it does. Not sure about CRT.

    The empty hard drive wasn't my fault. The controller failed and obliterated the partition table (according to the windows event logs).

    I almost wish it was my fault though.

    displaying Black in LCD panels takes energy because the off state of pixels in LCDs are more of a grayish grey

    That's why I like OLED panels. Displaying black pixels completely turns those pixels off, and since they generate their own light, black pixels take no energy whatsoever.

    Little bit of self-content here: I installed the most recent build of Crunchbang (statler, I think it is) to a 20gb partition on my laptop just to have on there. I then booted back into windows, and, like a dumb fuck, deleted the partition at 4 AM after not having slept for almost a day and a half. Screwed up GRUB, so I tried to use a self-burned win7 recovery disk to fix the boot manager. It couldn't mount my HDD for whatever reason, so I have just booted back into my crunchbang liveusb to back up my windows files.
    I guess that's sort of ironic, because now I've lost my windows 7 boot dvd and now I only have crunchbang on a flash drive ready.
