New PS3 Firmware Contains Backdoor

Theoboley Re:I quit (491 comments)

"I hacked my PSP because i wanted faster load times" Yea and im sure it had absolutely NOTHING to do with the fact that you could pirate the hell out of games. I know that's why I hacked mine. At least i'm honest about it

Man Sues Rockstar Saying GTA:SA Is Based On His Life

Theoboley Re:comparison image (124 comments)

about the only thing you can do, is put different clothes on Carl Johnson (our protagonist from GTA:SA), have him eat tons, and become fat, or pump iron to become muscular. there's no way to make him look like "Shagg"

Theoboley Re:The most dangerous man alive (124 comments)

To hell with being the most dangerous man alive, he must be stealthier than Solid Snake... I wonder if he gets out of the car and beats the hookers he just slept with to death just to get his cash back?

Gamers Abandoning DS, PSP In Favor of Smartphones

Theoboley Re:Yea, Okay (305 comments)

3) Labyrinth - a game that lets you control a ball through mazes with the accelerometer - can't do that on a PSP.

Warioware Twisted for the Gameboy Advance did this years ahead of this game, Accelerometer and all.

Web-Users Fall For Fake Anti-Virus Scams

Theoboley Re:Ugh (272 comments)

Along those lines, I was out of town one weekend, and my cousin messages me over Facebook saying he received a refund check from PCMall.com or some computer component website in the amount of like 1500 bucks. I called him shortly thereafter and asked him 2 things, "did you cash it?" And "Have you ever bought anything from PCMall.com" He answered No to both questions... He did tell me, however, that he went to the police, and asked them if it seemed legitimate. The cop took a quick look at it, and deemed it "Legit to cash"

I laughed at that statement and then offered my rebuttal... "CJ, You haven't shopped there, and they're sending you a "refund check" for something you've never purchased... doesnt this throw a red flag somewhere?"

Common sense says if you haven't shopped there, or signed up for any contests, then obviously it's a scam. He tore up the check.

I drink too much...

Theoboley Re:Mountain Dew (500 comments)

My girlfriend was concerned about the amount of soda i was drinking over a 24 hour period, and she introduced me to flavored sparkling water.

Walmart sells bottles of this in various flavors for roughly what you'd pay for a can of soda.

I found myself weening off the soda, and drinking the sparkling water more and more, which is a good thing.

You might want to check that out if you're concerned about the caffeine, syrup and whatnot. It worked for me. I found my problem was the fact that i craved the carbonation.

I tried to quit soda, but inevitably came crawling back about 6 months later. I cut down to 1 can of soda a day, and drink a bottle or two of the water a day.

iFixit Tears Down Microsoft's Kinect For Xbox 360

Theoboley Re:Nope, Unsold Kinects At The Damn Launch Event (280 comments)

2/3 of 500 million is still appx 330 million sold... 330 Million * 150.00 = 4.95 Billion dollars...

I dunno about you, but i'd say that's a decent amount of change, nor would i call it a failure by any means...

Blind IT Administrator

Theoboley Theoboley writes  |  more than 4 years ago

Theoboley writes "So i've been thrust into an IT Administrator position headfirst, with no prior knowledge of how the system is set up. The company had previously contracted their IT work out to a couple of people who are very stingy about giving out their setup information/passwords etc. What would be the best approach in going about getting this information from them?"
