    I know a kid that wants to learn programming so he can make games. I tried convincing him that you can't remake CoD:MW2 with basic programming skills but he told me he's starting a C+ course.

    :doh:
    The obvious question is if he ever mentioned remaking mw2 or if he's genuinely interested in programming.

    Ooh, page king, this means content, right?

    Friend of mine recently fried his harddrive. Asked me to take a look at it (seriously, why does everyone come to ME with this shit?) so I came over. I opened the case up (almost breaking the damn thing because he shut it so horribly wrong the last time) and found his harddrive.....not in the HDD bay.....but resting atop his GPU. He said the last time he tried to install an HDD he broke the damn thing (and the bay showed it) so he decided to just lay it down somewhere in his case. Why he picked his GPU of all things still amazes me.

    My dad finally admitted that he is an asshole! I now have $70.00 and a free, overprice mouse.

    Also, does anyone know what would cause the iMac to take about 6 minutes to boot up? Normally it is less than a minute.

    Those mice suck ass. I've used one. It's hard as hell to scroll with it because it only recognizes half of the strokes you make. Also, how does the middle mouse button work on it?

    Its fucking annoying. Scrolling happens whenever I even slightly move my finger and its hard to get it to actually recognize scrolling when you want it too, and I've accidently right clicked while trying to left click several times.

    When I use my iMac (I mainly use the PC I built), I use the Magic Mouse. Before I was given the Mac, I bashed the living crap out of the mouse without using it.

    The multitouch is great for web browsing and most applications and it's fairly comfortable. The only time I plug in another mouse is when my brother uses it to play Minecraft, since you change inventory slots a lot when holding left mouse.

    I tried one of those mice in the Apple store and it was awkward as hell at first because I'm used to large, normal mice. Once I got it down though it worked decent, but I wouldn't want to have to use it as my primary mouse.

    To GMod Guy, didn't they get like a tracking number or something? Dell gave me one when I ordered my laptop last year.

    There's C, C++, C#, and for some reason I have a nagging feeling I'm forgetting another one.

    You can do that. Is there any advantage over one keyboard? No. You still only have 2 hands.

    He's 11 and told me that he was gonna remake Minecraft with an "engine he found"

    He found gamemaker.
