AllyGreen Re:Great!!! (119 comments)

Yeah, I think there is definitely a lack of perspective here! $300 bucks for your own satellite is definitely pretty awesome.

Is the Quick Death of Failed Tech Products a Good Thing?

AllyGreen Re:What about your reputation thereafter? (181 comments)

MiniDisc was pretty big in the uk for a while, I was just finishing high school when they were around and all my mates had them. They were viewed as quite cool, though that might've just been where I was from!

How Much Math Do We Really Need?

AllyGreen Re:What we do/don't need in Calculus. (1153 comments)

In theory that all sounds good, but what about money spent on rent before buying your home? How would you factor that in? Surely that damages how much money you actually saved?

Exam Board Deletes C and PHP From CompSci A-Levels

AllyGreen Re:Maybe I'm missing something (663 comments)

Wow thats depressing. I just graduated last year and the area which I felt was most lacking was low level programming skills. For my OS class, it was all theory, no practical. So I'm now reading a book on the linux kernel to try and understand it a little more. Our compilers class was a joke! Write a compiler based on c#! What! How does that make any sense?! I'm currently working in a company that writes web apps, which is fine, but I could learn this stuff any time.

I might be out of date, but isn't there still a big problem with write speeds? And is there not a limited life span of about 3-5 years for usage?

As I said, may be out of date!!

XFX factory broken into ?

AllyGreen AllyGreen writes  |  more than 4 years ago

AllyGreen (1727388) writes "An email sent out to XFX customers ...

Dear XFX Customers,

In light of recent events, we suspect that one of our HD 5970 Black Edition Limited graphics cards may have been compromised. In our current inventory check of this limited run of 1,000 individually serialised pieces, #68 is unaccounted for. We have evidence of a security breach in our facility, thus we believe #68 has been illegally obtained as the product has yet to be released. Please be aware that the person responsible will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. If any news can be provided to lead us to the apprehension of a suspect, or if you can provide us with any information, please report it to security@xfxforce.com. XFX will reward any information leading to the return of #68. Please do not attempt to buy, trade, or barter for this unit. We thank you for your cooperation and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Sincerely,
XFX"
