  1. From what I gather, he got banned from Roblox. This is made worse because as far as I can ascertain, his account had some sort of lifetime perk applied to it which seems to have been rather costly to get. All in all it's a lesson in why they don't hand the nuclear codes over to anyone who just wants to take a selfie with them.
  2. The reply you get will likely be a copy-pasted standard response. A bot that randomly unbans 2% of whoever asks? Does that really sound likely to you?
  3. @HebaruSan covered just about anything I would have said. I'll be keeping an eye on it because hope springs eternal, but I think we've all been down this road more than once. Expect nothing, never be disappointed.
  4. Basically this... ...but with Sakura on the ground, rather than Gouken.
  5. Slightly left-of-field suggestion, but Shazam seems to be available for Android. There are multiple Android emulators for PC's such as Bluestacks. So there's that option if you feel particularly adventurous.
  6. Sounds to me like photobucket are running out of money.
  7. As someone who grew up in the 80's, this is the only Swizzle Stick I remember, and frankly wouldn't seem out of place in a Kerbal cockpit.
  8. The school I went to actually raised the animals (rats) themselves. However dissections were performed by the teacher, so a single animal was used to teach a full class. I'm not sure if you're expected to perform the dissection yourself or if it will be similar to my experience - your post isn't entirely clear on that point. If it's the students performing the dissections on a one-per-student basis I'm less comfortable with that scenario - seems overly wasteful to me tbh, much in the same way I'm generally 100% ok with hunting if you're going to eat the animal and opposed to trophy hunting - but on the whole I do think there is educational value in the practice, even if I did personally find it a bit uncomfortable to watch. As for the animals themselves, sad as it may seem, this is what they were bred and fed for. They wouldn't be around if not for this. If you really don't want to participate, you could always conveniently be sick on the day. Was very much a one-off demonstration in my day, and they're hardly going to keep the animal around for you to have a go at next class if you missed it - at least I'd be amazed if they did.
  9. see: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc771865(v=ws.11).aspx and: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc725622(v=ws.11).aspx Running the following two commands from an administrative cmd prompt should do the trick:
  10. Elite Dangerous and the X series as a close second.
  11. Huh thats news to me. The world needs more Zim though.
  12. He and others like him are probably the only ones making consistent cash out of cryptocurrency. When there's a gold-rush, sell shovels.
  13. Ah I was assuming we were strictly talking about bitcoin. It is still profitable to mine for other coins on GPUs from what I've heard, though I haven't heard about that particular one (etherium). I'd wonder how long it'll stay like that though. The specialized systems can't be far behind if the coin gains any kind of traction in the way bitcoin has. In some senses until there's a paper trail it's hard to prove there's anything to tax whichever way you want to classify it. There'd be more incentive to keep the investment in the coin unless you were worried about the volitility of the currency. I'd be skeptical about any predictions that anyone makes though.
  14. I was under the impression that miners had moved away from GPUs to ASIC systems.
  15. For all it did I'd hardly call it trash. I really don't understand why it wasn't just left in orbit but I'm sure there's a good reason, and there'll likely be some science done in its final moments.
