    The only biography of Steve Jobs I ever read was "Steve Jobs and the NeXT Big Thing" - written all the way back in '93. It's not a complete biography - it *starts* with Jobs leaving Apple, then ends with the then-present of NeXT discontinuing its hardware division.

    It paints a vastly different picture than the "savior of computing" some now see him as. It basically chronicles his biggest failures, showing *him* as a failure. Because, at the time, he was - NeXT never made a profit, and none of its products were ever successful.
    However, the work he did at NeXT did lay the ground work for the successes that he had at Apple upon his return.

    Anyone have any idea how I can get decent AO performance in HL2? I put it on quality which is enough for me to be ok with quality but I get like 30fps, and it's at like 95% usage on my second 580 but only like 15% on my first one.

    Why does SLI suck for the source engine.

    Well damn it I broke my kindle
    Should I get another one or look for alternatives? I hated the way you had to organize collections, and how it only supported mobi (which is awful IMO)
    Nook looks sweet, Kobo looks OK too

    So..

    Apparently the random loud chirp / click on the DM001 drives are somewhat common, and is being investigated by Seagate.

    Maybe it's caused by the flooding in Thailand :(

    That's quite interesting news. Would be awesome to get an email saying,

    "We are having a recall on the DM001 3TB models. We will fix the device and we'll upgrade them to our experimental 8TB drives." I'll take four 8TB drives.

    Speaking of which, it's amazing how dense drives have gotten over the past 10 years.

    The problem is that the software(origin) is the problem, because it doesen't let me install ANY game.

    I blame bad programming

    Whatever douchenozzle owns it had a fucking pair of Studio Beats hanging from the rear view mirror

    Neither do I, since the audio quality and appearance is indistinguishable from the $20 knockoffs
    But generally if you paid more for something than your car, you don't leave it in the open

    Oh and this was in the nightclub part of the city, many drunk idiots roaming the streets

    Q: I PIRATED YOUR MUSIC!
    A: great! piracy rules. piracy and filesharing are great promotional tools, and help spread the word of artists. people that love the music they pirate generally do end up supporting the artists, and the only people that think otherwise are the RIAA and the labels under its umbrella. if you buy some music from me and want to send it to your friends, go ahead! i don't care what you do with it as long as you aren't directly reselling or bootlegging it as a whole. use it in your YouTube videos, post it on your website, whatever!

    Sorry, I'd use his music but I'd have to ask for sure. Using audio on youtube and running ads against it are two completely different things according to law and copyright infringement.

    If I find something I like I'll email him asking him specifically.

    Edited:

    I have an 8 minute video now. Think I should keep the videos 5 minutes long? people are more likely to view it and more money. Also means they would come out more frequently.

    Also I'm doing the standard stuff of zooming-in-on-peoples-faces-randomly-to-make-it-funny. But I wonder if I should bring the full project into after effects and do motion tracking of the text to the people as they speak.

    Would take maybe another hour for a 5 minute video. I'm going to bed now, but let me know what you think.
