    I hate Microsoft Office so much right now. We're doing these stupid MLA formatted research papers for no reason other than to practice them.

    I had to do something similar. The first part of my slideshow was the slides that play during the install process.

    I'm weird, I always get a kick out of compiling the kernel myself.
    Arch, for example. It always seems to be on the latest kernel.Fresh install and Up to date? Lol compile anyway.
    I'll say it again, I'm weird.

    I used to compile most stuff but then I got sick of Python dependencies.

    Kinda off-topic, but I just bought a root beer brewing kit.

    Should be here Saturday, and the best part is it's actually a very light beer (like 1% alcohol) with root beer flavoring.

    Does sipwicket want me to document the process?

    That's where I learned of it but Amazon has it for the same price + prime. (amazon owns Woot)

    I threw in some random set of CDs for $3 and got 5 CDs and the kit + refill for $27 w/ free 2 day shipping.

    Hmmm, I wonder if you actually could get an older Linux kernel running on one of these...

    It has no X86 dependencies, right?

    Not a chance in hell. How do you think I'm running RHEL on my Itanium. IA64 (which is not x86), don't forget SPARC and ARM support.
    I actually have a half finished Z80 at my desk. I'll finish it one day.

    Maybe these people live on 20 dollars a month and eletricity is expensive or something. Down here it's 11 cents per kw. Meaning my computer is about 10 bucks per month at idle, maybe 13-14 if I game a ton in BF3 where I'm using 650watts.

    I switch my PC off on a night, merely because I have nothing that needs to continue running.
    I leave it on if I have a download that needs completing, though.

    Uh, more like 50 bucks if you game a ton using 650W.

    I can't leave my computer on, the fan slowly spinning starts to get annoying after a while for me.

    But on days it is pretty much always on. From pmuch 12-24 it is on. And I hibernate so I can simply get all my stuff up easily.

    I calculated that by considering that his computer uses 400W and he leaves it on 24/7.

    What? He said ~100W idle. ~650W is while he is gaming.

    The last time I tried to update my VPS it broke it and it took me about 5 reinstalls to get everything working again, because a specific version of glibc broke pacman continuously. Granted, 2 of those reinstalls were me forgetting to blacklist the package, but still. I'm not going to attempt an update any time soon.
