How long ago did you last assemble a computer?

Slizzo Re:Update cycles (229 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.
