What is your computer most often plugged into?

Slizzo Re:UPS (233 comments)

It's a 1500VA unit. Which I believe is something like 865W? Only cost me $150 on sale. Powers my i5 2500K rig with dual GTX780s in SLI plus many SSDs, harddrives, and whatnot. And the two monitors And cablemodem+router+VOIP box Plus Klipsch Promedia 5.1 Ultra speakers. PowerChute indicates that the UPS is never above 50% load max.

What is your computer most often plugged into?

Slizzo Re:UPS (233 comments)

I'm late to reply, but I know that on my APC 1500VA UPS that I have my PC and router/cable modem on, I also elected to install the PowerChute software on my computer. PowerChute will regularly test the UPS on it's own, and will test battery health and report that to me as well occasionally. I did have it finally just warn me once that the battery condition is getting low enough to replace the battery. I will be doing that soon.

What is your computer most often plugged into?

Slizzo UPS (233 comments)

If you don't have it plugged into a dedicated UPS, you REALLY should be going out to get one. No matter how "good" or "new" your wiring may be, there are still those instances when it can fail on you, and take out your expensive computer. Really, a $150 investment to protect your $500+ computer is more than worth it.

Aereo Files For Bankruptcy

Slizzo Re:Who? (137 comments)

You mean the company that has been in the tech news for the past couple years? First because of it's innovative way of skirting the law, and second during it's long drawn out trial in court where big content was trying to shut them down?

Tim Cook: "I'm Proud To Be Gay"

Slizzo Steve Jobs... (764 comments)

Steve didn't give a shit. I don't give a shit. Looks like others here don't give a shit. So I will keep on not giving a shit whether he likes to play with other men's Penii or not.

MIT Study Finds Fault With Mars One Colony Concept

Slizzo Re:Something More Modest (269 comments)

Problem with your idea is that you would be adding mass to the moon (sending comets into the moon) and if you do that enough you've increased it's mass. That causes issues with things down here on Earth. And we're already causing enough problems for ourselves environmentally.

Which Cars Get the Most Traffic Tickets?

Slizzo Re:Moire expensive car, richer driver, that's FINE (261 comments)

Because people who aren't rich can't own a vehicle that used to be expensive? My car retailed around $70k new. I picked it up for $40k. Doesn't mean that I can pay for every ticket that I would get if I drove around with the hammer down all the time. Thankfully, I usually drive like a responsible adult, and don't attract more attention than the car does on it's own.

How long ago did you last assemble a computer?

Slizzo Re:Update cycles (391 comments)

Agreed, I only replace what I deem necessary to replace when the time comes. Just recently I replaced my Core2 Quad Q9550, P45 board and memory for a Sandy Bridge based CPU (2500K) motherboard (Z68) and memory (recently being 2 years ago). Then I replaced my 2x GTX470s with a GTX780 around a year or so ago. It's ever evolving. I'll be putting a second GTX780 in there as soon as I can find a great deal on one. This doesn't include the countless SSDs I've installed as well.

DARPA Successfully Demonstrates Self-Guiding Bullets

Slizzo Creepy (188 comments)

A .50cal round shot out of either a M2 machine gun, or M82 or one of it's many variants is scary enough. Now to have a round that can guide itself? Downright creepy.

My most recent energy-saving bulbs last ...

Slizzo Re:LEDs (278 comments)

Only have one LED (interior) flood. But it's been going without issue since I've had it. Need to replace the rest of my floods in my house with them. Want dimmable ones so they'll be pricy initially.

Slizzo Re:Missing Option: I HATE fireworks. (340 comments)

What's there to do? I couldn't tell exactly where they were coming from. And it's not like a noise complaint would do anything as, again, I couldn't tell exactly what house they were coming from (wooded areas in between lots you see).

Slizzo Re:Missing Option: I HATE fireworks. (340 comments)

Hell yes. I agree completely. I have a 9 month old now, and some jerkface was lighting fireworks off (big ones, CT outlaws any fireworks beyond a sparkler) right outside his window at 11PM. Made me want to walk out and beat the person's face in with a baseball bat.

Goldman Sachs Demands Google Unsend One of Its E-mails

Slizzo Too late (346 comments)

"avoid the risk of unnecessary reputational damage to Goldman Sachs." I'd say it's too late for that now, mate.

The Simultaneous Rise and Decline of Battlefield

Slizzo Re:Payday (208 comments)

Payday is done by Overkill software and Starbreeze Studios (published by 505 games on Consoles). Battlefield is done by EA Digital Illusions and published by Electronic Arts. No.

Battlefield: Hardline is not being developed by EA nor DICE. Please try again.
