PumpkinPC v1.0 Makes Its Hallowe'en Debut

timothy posted more than 11 years ago | from the still-a-pumpkin-in-the-morning dept.

It's funny.  Laugh. 174

vivIsel writes "I just recently created the PumpkinPC v1.0 for the Hack-O-Lantern contest at Bjorn3D. I thought the Slashdot community would get a kick out of this--it being Halloween, and all. I just hope it doesn't rot too soon." Hopefully, the pumpkin has survived the trick-or-treaters.

The average gamer needs to run win98 or XP if they want to have a chance of playing the latest games. Linux is just not a feasable solution. Even things like WINE do not work with most games.

XP is, in all essence, Windows 2000 version 2, and is largely parallel with 2000 for gaming. 2000 wasn't a good choice for gaming in the early days because the drivers just weren't there for multimedia hardware: Soundblaster, Geforce, etc-- all of them had hackneyed, poor performance and poor compatibility drivers. As Microsoft made it clear that it was the future direction they got their ass in gear and made drivers that often exceed the speed of the 95/98/ME machines. As it stands if I were given a choice between 2000 and 98, I'd take 2000 hands down.

Calling all trolls -- troll assault on Klipsch!!! (-1, Troll)

SexyKellyOsbourne (606860) | more than 11 years ago | (#4577051)

Klipsch has ripped me off bad, as my new set of 4.1 speakers basically quit working with no fair reason -- and they have said they wouldn't refund me at all.

The moderators seem totally absent from their forums, so troll the fuck away:

http://forums.klipsch.com/ [klipsch.com]

I started subtle, but the temptation to post the entire goatse series [klipsch.com] was too strong! They have almost no limitations, registration doesn't require a valid email, and there are no moderators whatsoever.

I'm going asleep, but if you like trolling, fill the entire forum up with the sickest pictures you can find and make those bastards pay for making their shitty products in fucking Chinese sweatshops!

I would offer myself out to any troll who asks if every post on every forum was a goatse pic.

This "case mod" if you can call it that totally rules. The article is thorough and has many pictures, and it's surviving the slashdot effect rather nicely.

I give this one 7 out of 10. I'm deducting a few points because I didn't see the BIOS screen, and because he was too wussy to run StarCraft on it.

Turd Terrorism (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Coward | more than 11 years ago | (#4577115)

Here's some background information concerning the following poop escapade. One of my friends and I decided to go hang out at the mall because of the lack of anything better to do. He had bought a cd and had a small plastic bag. We both expressed the urge to take a shit. I thought it would be the funniest thing on earth if he could take the bag into the bathroom and poop in it, then we would take it to JCPenney and hang it on a clothes rack where it would be hidden but stink up the joint like no other.

He couldn't manage to pinch one off in the bag, so he just crapped normally. I, being the talented crapper that I am, decided to go to the bathroom in JCPenney. I dropped my trousers and tried to crap on the floor with no luck. I switched to regular poop position and pinched a couple of soft piping hot loafs. The last little turtle head didn't want to come out so I plucked it with some TP and stuck it to the wall. It looked like a large melted hershey kiss stuck to the stall door.

My friend was in the bathroom by the door keeping me company; he looked in the next stall and found a plunger. He had the bright idea of smearing poop all over the WHOLE bathroom. We went ahead with our despicable plan. There was shit on the bathroom fixtures, smears on the walls and mirror, I'm saying EVERYWHERE. It looked like the blood on the walls of the houses where the Manson family killed those people. All of a sudden, a man walks in with some sort of a name-tag. We assume they work at the store so we shove him out of the way and bolt.

The bathroom was near a door that leads outside. My friend started heading all the way back through the store and to the mall, I yelled at him to follow me so we ran outside right into the middle of a construction area. We crossed one of the busiest streets in town to a restaurant and had a little food. We joked about how they might put out a wanted poster on us or put us on the news ass the dookie delinquents. After we ate we returned to the mall with some expectations that they may have overreacted to the whole situation and there would be some security lockdown. There wasn't, but we still basked in the brown glory of knowing some poor sap opened the door to find a bathroom covered in shit. What a day!

WhiteChocolate42 (618371) | more than 11 years ago | (#4577242)

So last week I was rummaging around in my great-uncle Nathaniel's basement, and what do I find but an original Gutenberg Bible. I was awestruck at this incredible find- it was the perfect size for the computer I was building! I immediately took it home and got to work. First things first, I ripped off the cover and the back, and used my dremel to cut a "box" shape in all the pages (don't worry, I didn't let any of it go to waste... I used the rest to line my birdcage). Anyway, I won't waste space here with all the details, but suffice to say, all I needed to use was a mini-itx motherboard, a hard drive I had laying around, and a power supply I built myself using old Deusenberg parts. I topped it off by making it holy-water-cooled and creating a neat lighting effect by burning the souls of your unborn children. I'll have a link and pics soon!
