    7zip is amazing. Took my brothers old 160gb drive with about 95gb of stuff on it. Used 7zip to compress it to fucking 12gb to put it on my flashdrive.

    I'm considering preemptively applying the same fix to the other side but I can't be bothered because I'm gonna purchase something better as soon as the refund for my Sennheiser HD558's rolls around.

    I volunteered at my school's eWaste pickup day again.
    I brought back: 500 watt "Ultra" PSU, AGP geforce 7600GS, some Core 2 Quad, 2 sticks of DDR2 (Probably 1 GB sticks), 500 GB Samsung HDD and some shitty-looking PC Chips motherboard. The graphics card, PSU and a stick of RAM are probably going into my mom's PC, the core 2 quad will hopefully go into my server if it's not too crappy.

    A roughed up PS3 and an old Alienware PC

    Some guy brought in his 1953 TV, which was unfortunately claimed by the douchy guy running the event (Not from our school). It's a shame, the woodshop teacher would have been able to restore it really well.

    Four Xbox 360s, the three in the box were brought by one guy. No idea if any of them work.

    One picture of the giant mass of stuff that was dropped off. Mostly TVs.

    yeah, their stock is falling like crazy.
    I sure hope bioware and DICE make it out independent.
    also Maxis.

    Wait. EA should just split up and stop spreading cancer to it's subcompanys.

    This is my main problem with services like onlive.
    If they ever take over, at the end of a games commercial life, they will just shut the server down with it on. They won't even hand out the game for free as it wont make them any money.

    Damn, you're right. They're down a lot from 5 years ago, especially. And they're back at the lowest point in the last 5 years.

    Heh. The PC I got it from had a sticker for Core 2 Quad, though my server sees it as a Celeron D. Also, the hard drive I got is also dead.

    I wasn't that lucky this year...

    You looked around for mechanical keyboards, right, RIGHT?

    Also, it really really seems weird people just throwing away Xbox 360s and PS3s. Here, we attempt to sell everything, even if it's broken.
    A broken PS3 goes for about $50-75 here. A P4 tower for $50. Old LCD monitor? $100.

    And you guys are throwing Core2Quads away. I wish I lived there.

    I didn't get a chance to look at every keyboard that came through there, though I don't think I saw any. Last year there were a few Model Ms, so I picked the one in the best condition and brought it home.

    I'm in the same boat, I'm done with my first year of college in 4 weeks, just starting my redrafts soon and I have a bit of 3DS work, 2 digital graphics writeups and a bit of my 2D game left to write.

    I have a lot of old stuff like the stuff you see in those junkyard places.
    I have a whole shelf full of old CD drives and a DVD drive, all IDE. I also have a lot of those brand computer PSUs, cases, the lot.
