    I offered to buy a broken Macintosh from a client who wasn't willing to give me the money to go buy a new hard drive for it, and he wanted to charge me 2 grand because "macs are expensive".

    He teaches shortcuts that are never good for long-term mapping habits, and lead to really messy first maps for a lot of people. Usually those people find the Facepunch mapping forum, and then they have to tell that new person to break those habits.

    Carve/Hollow tool instead of Clip, etc.

    Edited:

    ninja'd by >10 minutes, should probably refresh before posting...
    But in one of his videos he explained that you should never use carve?

    I just had a crazy thought. I have an ancient GeForce 2. Not a 200, a 2. It's completely uncooled - no heat pipes, no fans, not even a heat sink. Nothing but the bare chip.

    I have (as many of you probably do) a bin of parts, generally left over after upgrades or scavenged from junk computers. Mine happens to have several cooling devices, ranging from a small passive heat sink from a Mac G3 northbridge to a large heatsink/fan combo from a Pentium IV.

    My thinking is, how much do you think I can overclock that thing once I put some serious cooling power on it? I'm betting I can at least double the clock (from 175mHz to 350mHz). Probably more. Any bets?

    Don't know - it doesn't seem to report temperatures.

    And, unfortunately, I can't stick the Pentium IV's heat sink on it. It's literally bigger than the card is. Best I can do now is put a heatsink from a northbridge on it, and point a 92mm fan towards it. Unless I can find that 120mm fan...

    I find his tutorials to be good, most of the shit I've read about him on these forums are complete make-believe or just a "well they suck"

    his maps are a little blocky and lifeless but he's got a good technique and a creative mind, I think it's one of those let's-pick-something-to-bandwagon things

    IIRC, GPUs from that era couldn't really overclock well. I would be impressed if you can even push it to 200mhz.

    Does anyone have a non-working full ATX Motherboard they are willing to part with?

       For a small shipping fee, or course

    This was a thumbed up comment on one of SSoHkpC's new videos of Killing Floor.

    And I quote. "The graphics are the same if your tv is good man :P most games have bad graphics whether its xbox or pc anyway, also i have a 1080p screen and i if anything pc gaming has taught me its that i have a terrible connection to the servers and that it sucks looking through lobbies with barely any people to find a match. I prefer xbox, where matches* are nearly instantaneous and i can change the color so it looks even BETTER anyway. btw $2067 is pricy."

    Some guy was listening to really loud music on his iPhone using headphones, and even through the headphones I could hear how extremely bad sound quality it was...I asked him how he could stand listening to that awful kind of quality, and he thought I was talking about the shitty Apple headphones he was using...It's amazing how deaf some people are, I mean really?

    I never really do that, but once I had no choice.

    I'm amazed I could get great quality 192Kbps audio from a 240p video, I've always imagined the audio quality being shit on the lower resoluton videos.

    I work in a computer repair shop, and I had a guy come in today regarding the status of his computer. I was about halfway through tinkering when one of the other staff asked him if he had a Pentium 4 processor. He proceeded to tell us that it was a top of the line "Pentium 4 Celeron D".

    Me and the other guy on repairs had to quietly burst into tears and turn our music up in the back of the shop.

    Go to a music video that is at least 480p
    Choose 240p

    I know, but apparently videos that only has the 240p (maybe because the video was uploaded a long time ago, or just was uploaded in a very low resolution) option doesn't have as limited sound quality.
    Which is good.

    Speaking of limited sound quality, remember when you had to add "&fmt=18" to the end of youtube addresses to make the video higher quality?

    This is how Youtube audio quality is if the video is Full HD (Just an example)
    240<360<480=720=1080

    If we have a video that is, say, 360p, the audio is as good as it is with a video of higher resolution.

    So yeah, you're right

    Popular hacker software includes "Comet Cursor", "Bonzi Buddy" and "Flash".
