      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

I have heard that the boat repair business is a good way to go baroque.

i can't vouch for how effective this is, or really anything about it aside from what is readily apparent on the front page of the website - but it sounds interesting. I learned about this when i was, at one time, researching to build a new gaming/video editing computer a few years ago. ended up getting an off the shelf laptop instead, though. basically, this software helps researchers use your computer's resources to crunch numbers etc - the results of which are then sent back to the researchers for analysis. i'm tempted to try and help, but i dont like the idea of my laptop running 24hrs a day verses a desktop.

Get a Mac. One plug, that's all. cheers

Mine has one plug for power, but also plugged in are the extra monitor, keyboard, and mouse, not to mention the backup drive. That extra monitor, of course, comes with a power cord, as does the drive. Total number of cords plugged into the computer: 5. Number hanging down from the table to the battery backup unit: 3.

 

Pete, you don't have a computer problem, but a dust and hair problem. Get one of those robo-vaccuum cleaners. Wife got a Roomba and it has cut down significantly on the dog hair and dunes. It does it while she sits on the porch and reads. I'm pretty sure it's more indispensable than I am now. ;)

I had a roomba, worked great but the housekeeper didn't like it so we gave it to Goodwill. My cats never stop shedding and like to flop on the key board. That's the problem.

 

...I count six cords hanging down,wtf.

1. The 8740w has ATI FirePro M7820 graphics, so when paired with the optional docking station you can connect multiple external displays.

The only reason you can't easily connect more monitors to the 8740w is the limited number of display port connections on the dock.

 

2. Obviously watching more tasks and/or using different or the same programs in conjunction with each other...otherwise you would be spending time switching tabs which is pain in the ass.

I'm tangled in wires and almost smothered by cat hair and dust! My "eye on the world" is so cluttered it's uncleanable, a bio-hazard. HELP!

 

your first problem is CATS. Get rid of them.

Having had both, dogs are way messier. Especially big dogs. Most especially big dogs with ready access to a pond, sand, and mud. Cats pretty much never go in ponds at all, though there was this one hilarious incident...

yea, there's your problem straight away. Messes are normal, they're even healthy. Cats - well... I like GSD's. Always have always will. Life is messy.

This is my fifth build. Nothing fancy, just something to get me through the summer. It was actually a computer that a co-worker got "sick" of and left it at work, and I just revived it with some more storage and the monitors (both on craigslist for $70). I don't like the mATX mobo/case, there's barely any room in it for cable management and hard drive space.

 

Probably going to flip the monitors for double what I paid and get one bigger IPS monitor. The computer will do for now, unless I can get some extra cash flow in and build some 3-way GPU computer I've been dreaming about.

 

And if anyone needs vga/dvi cables or displayport cables, let me know. I have literally, boxes, of them that we're going to throw out at work. Just shoot me the shipping via paypal.

Cats kill rodents and are cool critters to have around too. I don't have one now, but will again.

 

hey I don't have a GSD anymore - don't live in the kind of circumstances that would provide a good home for a GSD - yet..

 

I'm in a shruburban wasteland. Not a fitting home for such a noble animal.

That's really a gorgeous dog. Nobody does 'nobility' like a GSD.

After all this talk about fur...figured I'd clean a few of the laptops that I take in the field,internally and externally...other then the usually build up of dust and what not,what always amazes me is the amount of hair that comes out,when blowing & vacuuming the keyboards...all kinds of hair,human and animal.
