  1. I like Cinnamon, as a Mac user, it makes me feel more at home.
  2. I have a 2.8GHz Core i7 2600S Sandy Bridge in my Mac and a 3.4GHz Core i5 3570K Ivy Bridge in my PC and they're both brilliant performers. I don't have firsthand experience with recent AMD cpus but every AMD-Intel performance comparison I've looked at ends up making AMD look really bad.
  3. looks like a copy of the B-1 Lancer -
  4. BTW, even though Nvidia wins the outright performance race right now, AMD still has a lot of advanced technology on offer, namely FreeSync (more flexible than G-Sync), CrossFire (more flexible than SLI) Eyefinity (more flexible than Nvidia Surround), Mantle and better OpenCL support. How's them sour grapes, Green Team?
  5. This is where my love affair with ATI graphics really started : Installed in my Power Mac G3 233 (Gossamer) Playing Quake III Arena and Unreal Tournament on this thing back in the day was a m a z i n g !
  6. My GPU history, as far as I can recall - 1998 - ATI 3D Rage II+ 2MB 2002 - ATI Rage 128 16MB 2003 - ATI Radeon 7500 32MB 2005 - ATI Radeon 9200 128MB 2006 - ATI Radeon x1600 128MB 2010 - Nvidia GeForce 320M 256MB 2011 - AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512MB (still in use) 2012 - AMD Radeon HD 7950 3GB (still in use) So, I'm almost totally Team Red.
  7. I made a poll thread - http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/threads/109756-graphics-mega-poll-AMD-vs-Nvidia-vs-Intel
  8. In this corner, the Green Team! And in this corner, the Red Team! What GPU(s) do you use in your main computing devices? Use multiple choice if necessary. What reasons do you have to prefer your current choice in graphics? Price? Features? Performance? Feel free to explain below!
  9. Radeon R7/R9 300 series expected to be announced soon. GO BIG RED!
  10. Like this travesty? "Hey, let's take everything a desktop PC is good at and throw that in the trash. Now, let's turn it into a glorified smartphone!"
  11. This video tribute is for the Space Shuttle specifically - but I like to think of the STS program as some of the best of NASA - Here's to all the astronauts, past and present, who have helped bring big dreams to life every day!
  12. My first home computer was a Gateway 2000 desktop with a i386 running DOS, it looked kind of like this - I remember playing Spirit of Excalibur on it! A couple years later we bought a Mac Color Classic (16 blazing MHz!) and we've been Mac people ever since (although I've tried to regain some of my OG PC gamer roots in recent years by building my gaming PC )-
  13. My current dream GPU : Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon R9 290X 8GB "Power! Unlimited power!" - Emperor Palpatine
  14. Speaking of storage capacity - Each one of these cabinets is a hard drive, an IBM 350 Disk File. It was introduced in 1956, had fifty 24" platters and a total storage capacity of 3.75 megabytes. (lady used for scale ) Soon, companies like Western Digital and Seagate will be able to fit upwards of 10 terabytes (10,000,000 megabytes) into 3.5" desktop hard drives. I find the advances in flash storage technology even more incredible, with SD cards now available in 512 gigabyte capacity, and MicroSD cards up to 128 gigabytes. Considering that a MicroSD is roughly the size of a human fingernail, I wonder what the approximate difference in data density is compared to those old IBM cabinet HDDs.
  15. If I had to go in for disposable razors I would go as plain as possible, ie : For the time being, I love my kickass beard too much though!
  16. "I was living with a girl for a while. We worried about different things. One day, I was like, 'What do you fear the most?' And she was like, 'I fear you'll meet someone else, and you'll leave me, and I'll be all alone.' And she was like, 'What do you fear the most?' And I was like, 'Bears.' " - Mike Birbiglia - - - Updated - - - Oh, and The Thing
  17. Sweet! Here's another classic heli, the Sikorsky H-34 - Of course, you might remember the S-58T variant "Screaming Mimi" from the TV show Riptide! I even had the toy as a kid - Man, the 80s were so radicool.
  18. Both Win and OS X. But OS X mostly. I dabble in Linux, but not too much.
