    This PC shall tide me over until i can get hold of a new decent socket 775 board.

    Amd athlon II x3 435
    ASUS M4A78-EM
    I couldn't find any AM2/3 heatsinks so i got the antec 620 out, fingers crossed it doesn't break.
    4 x 1GB dimms
    old spinpoint f1 500GB
    GTS250 1GB

    Edited:

    Anyone know how well the 435 compares to a 3GHZ q6600?

    I do so enjoy having 3DS max magically forget all of its licensing information and refuse to start like, as soon as I need it to get coursework complete.

    Ugh I thought you meant Nintendo 3DS and I was wondering what that had to do with coursework.

    Nah, I was going to convert one of my old 3D models so I could import it into UDK.
    This apparently isn't the case anymore.

    That's what I have, I just logged back into my old account and its re-verifying me, and it has given me a new license key to use.

    The map is sparse, but I can still hand it in and get a good mark.

    How is the application market? That was one of my main concerns when I was looking at phones.
    It's okayish, not great, but it isn't really lacking either. If you plan on gaming on your phone and what not, this is obviously not the platform for you, but I haven't really encountered something yet, that I simply couldn't find. If you're on a tight budget, the lumia 710 is a great phone for its price. If you're in the US (aren't you Canadian or something?), you can get the 900 for pretty cheap.

    Just noticed that there is some coolant leaking out of one of the connectors on the pump.

    Superglue to the rescue!

    It wasn't pissing it out, just a drop sitting there.

    I FUCKING HATE GAMES FOR WINDOWS FUCKING LIVE
    I'm trying to play Grand Theft Auto IV, but I forgot to save my saves. So I try to log in to GFWL, hoping they would be on the cloud.

    I forgot the password, so I click the button in game to launch Firefox so I can change my password. So I do that, and I let LastPass generate the password for me. And it logs into GFWL in browser just fine.

    So I try it in game. It refuses to work. I try everything, port forwarding, adding it in firewall, nothing works. Then suddenly it says, instead of "incorrect password or account," it says "Account locked." So I know it's responding to the internet. So I log into it on my browser again, and it asks me to enter the captch.

    On a whim, I tried something stupid, something crazy. I reset my password again, but this time I omitted special symbols, so it just had capital letters, lowercase letters, and numbers.

    The Games for Windows Live in-game panel doesn't fucking accept special characters when the browser version fucking does.

    And my saves weren't in the fucking cloud.

    I reinstalled Windows and backed up my GTA IV folder in Documents. But GFWL put my game saves in the %appdata% folder. So I wiped the hard drive, went to go play GTA IV and found out that the saves aren't there.

    Pissed me off, because I just finished the game the week before. Fucking hell.

    Aw fuck no.

    You know that laptop I've been waiting for? The Asus G55? Just dropped off the face of the earth. Can't find a single *working* order or pre-order page. Same for the same-internals-but-larger-size G75.

    Which sucks, because now that I could actually buy it, it's gone. Really hope it's just something small like all the pre-orders at that site being allocated, and not a case of the laptop being delayed or anything.

    He referred to GFWL's cloud, not his dropbox.

    Where is the bad reading rating when you need it?

    This is why I get rid of GFWL whenever I have a game with it, even if I have to torrent the entire fucking game to do it.

    If the feds come after me about it then I can prove that I own it legally - if I didn't I would never have had to deal with GFWL.

    I found a neat program.
    GameSave Manager

    It can scan your HDD for game save locations and then back them all up, and even automatically create and manage SymLinks so you can have all of your saves on Dropbox, for example. So now all of my save games are automatically on the cloud.

    I was already doing this manually but this program makes it a ton easier.
    All installers and games should use more path variables
    Instead of defaulting to %programfiles% it should go to a path called %games% if it's a game installer
    Savegames should go to %savegames% and so on

    That way you don't have 10,000 files spread across multiple locations at once

    This is actually a really good idea. Someone should actually make a petition for that.

    HDtune isn't picking up any bad blocks on my HDD, I'm hoping that just means it's noisy, which I can live with.

    Oh jesus I was scanning my SSD, I'm an idiot.

    Clicks rather a lot while scanning and scan gets stuck occasionally until it clicks.
