Ask Slashdot: Making a 'Wife Friendly' Gaming PC?

Osgeld Re:from another married 'gamer' (720 comments)

Im married, I didnt give up gaming

but the thing is I am not playing hours of games on end anymore, and frankly it doesnt hurt one bit

playing a game here and there is fine, making it your entire life where you take over the living room and never move is not, espcecially when you have bigger and better things to do than get to the next level of jackoff tredmill 3

What is your computer most often plugged into?

Osgeld Re:UPS (236 comments)

I agree, I have one that is starting to complain about the battery and its somewhere tween 4 and 5 years, who cares a replacement UPS in the same size cost less than 100 bucks, its about equal to the cost of the battery

frankly with UPS's being fairly cheap until you get into the big boys, its probably better to replace the whole darn thing anyway as 4-5 years of getting nailed by the environment probably has weakened its protection hardware anyway

FTDI Reportedly Bricking Devices Using Competitors' Chips.

Osgeld oh well (700 comments)

FTDI has .... interesting level of support, they THINK they are the only ones in the universe with a USB to various serial devices, but they are not, prolific chips are easier to design with since they are pretty much a drop n go part, TI and Microchip have some good ones, and any yahoo can take a cheap usb device capable micro and make their own which is what arduino did years ago.

so I applaud you FTDI for taking a stand, DONT make it a pain in the ass for me, the guy who has no problems using someone else's chip in my design
