    posted a message on Intel core i3?
    Quote from TheFieldZy

    The phenom II with a real graphics card will be better than the lano. You can actually try and unlock two extra cores out of that. It's not a one hundred percent guarantee, but its possible to get a 4 core out of that.



    Ya if you are getting a dedicated card Lano will be vastly out performed. Core unlocking is very very very rare now only in the early days was it reliable way of unlocking extra cores. That and the extra cores were disabled usually because they were unstable and might require extra voltage on the cpu. Overclocking is a better way to get extra performance.

    Llano is similar to the Athlons, Llano it has a slightly improved cpu. It has a GPU built into the cpu that will vastly out perform any IGP on a motherboard.

    The only AMD processor worth recommending at your budget leveling is a Lano because it has a graphics card built in thats plenty for playing minecraft. I3 are good processors there better then the Athlon 2s. Also you can't unlock extra cores on Athlons because there not there that was a deal with the early processors.

    The I3 has much better CPU performance but the Lano can be cheaper because you don't have to get a graphics card.

    If any of you watch the Colbert report there was a Jewish group talking about there plan and it sounded like they are willing to make peace with Palestine and share Jerusalem and have it belong to neither country necessarily.

    Never seen a reason to have apps for specific websites. On my phone(Droidx running cyanogen) I can use these forums just fine.

    I was able to play the game very poorly on my laptop AMD dual core 2.0 ghz and an integrated ATI 3200. So you got a chance of being able to run it.

    posted a message on Windows 8 Looks...
    Uhh been running windows 8 for a while now the leaked builds and now the official Dev build. Runs fine on my old laptop better then XP. Looks like Microsoft took a hint from Ubuntu and its crap unity interface. Not allot different then windows 7 feels more optimized not allot past that i just wish you could use the new task manger without using the metro interface.

    Here is a screenshot from my computer right now.






    Some further reading.

    posted a message on Computer Horror Stories
    Little back story im in highschool but during a few hours during the day i fix laptops for students. Every student gets a free laptop. They hired a new IT person this year this is of the horror stories with her.


    Me working on laptop replacing the screen.

    Her: This laptop can't use the internet.
    Me: The wifi card is on and Google and stuff won't work?
    Her: yes
    Me: Try reinstalling the drivers there on the network drive under drivers.
    Her: What are drivers?
    Me: They are the things that tell your computer how to use the hardware.
    Her: o ok
    30 secs later
    Me: any luck?
    Her: I have been looking though the programs folder list but i can't find them.
    Me: Ok let me take a look .

    The little button that disables wifi was on.



    A few days later the entire school is having issues and they keep blaming the company who hosts the website. Well turns out the company dropped support for IE7.
    Well I ask her to tell our other IT person who has the passwords for the server to force the install of firefox on all the laptops.
    She flipped out saying you can't put firefox on students laptops saying the school will get sued for using illegal software. I got called into the principals office and explained he was like well I use firefox. He emailed him and havent got crap from her regarding firefox sense.


    I have alot more on her.
    but now its time to make fun of the stupid teachers.
    Alot of teacher do know what they are doing to some extent.

    future farmers of america teacher.

    Him: my wired internet won't work
    Me: Is it plugged in?
    Him: What pluggd in.
    Me: The ethernet cable
    Him: don't you mean internet cable
    Me explaining that i did mean ethernet cable.
    him: ok its plugged in
    Me: Ok can you use the internet now.
    him: well my wifi works but my wired does not.
    Me: can't you just use the wireless connection
    him: but my wired internet is not working.
    Me: just use the wireless it will be fine.

    For the next 3 weeks we get a daily call or email from him about his wired internet not working.
    A port on the old switch went out and we had to replace it just for him.

    Other teacher: Flash player is broken i can't use NFL.com

    Every teacher in every class ever:
    Why aren't you using Microsoft office.

    Because I use Libre office at home because its free so, I'm used to using it.

    Teacher: Well im going to have to email the principal that you have illegal software on your computer.


    The tech people im forced to work with assume anything open source is evil.

    Quote from Badprenup

    Exactly. If it doesn't hurt anyone but can help people with poor connections it should be added.


    Well it would be a setting so if a server owner or a player wants to opt out they can.
