Re: SimCity 2013

I think this toms hardware article is the same as yours anakha. http://www.tomshardware.com/news/SimCity-Offline-Mod-Disconnection-Timer-Debug,21528.html Almost makes me want to go out and get the game but now, do I support the mod or do I support EA? By buying the game, you ultimately support EA. ...

I tried to keep a good balance of being able to survive out with pretty much no resources.

Re: Friend's R16000 build

Will your friend be overclocking? If not, then please don't waste the extra money on the 'k' version of the i7.

That GFX card is a little underwhelming compared to the rest of the PC. Something like a 660Ti or HD7950/70.

Just follow what the others have said. All I'm adding is redundant, really.

Re: All things iPad (and, more generally, Apple)

On the topic of maps, you can also get a free version of CoPilot for your i-Device, or Android. Of course, it doesn't have voice-navigation, but if you're lost it's very handy (And it provides offline maps) On a side note - after using an iPod Touch 4 for a couple weeks, compared to my Android phone...

Re: ScroogePhoenix' cellphone upgrade

It's not the CPU or anything I'm concerned about.

With the L3's screen, you will be SEVERELY limited to what you can do on it. (If you're going the Android route, that is)

Re: ScroogePhoenix' cellphone upgrade

PLease do yourself a favour.

Scrounge up the extra money and rather go for the LG Optimus L5 over the L3.

You don't want a phone with such a low-end screen. I learned the hard way.

The L5 even comes with Ice Cream Sandwich.

Oh, did I mention that my brother is four years older than me? (He's 25)

Jeeze, that fax issue must be annoying. Try leaving your phone off the hook for 15 or so minutes. Maybe they'll get the idea this is the wrong number.

Re: English Spam Thread and General Rubbish

I try not to, Stuart, I really do, but he has this annoying factor that either makes you want to panel his face with a shovel, or just do whatever it takes to make him shut up.

Sadly, the only legal option is to just make him shut up.

So I have come up with a dastardly way to stop my brother from hogging the internet that I'm paying for. I'm turning it off on Friday at midnight, and if he asks why, I tell him that I cancelled it.
