A surprising amount of modern pseudoscience is coming out of the environmental sector. Perhaps it should not be so surprising given that environmentalism is political rather than scientific.

Champagne tastes on a boxed wine budget: can you relate?

I am thinking of selling/swapping out my current Core i5, Z68, 8Gb DDR 3 combo. The only time I ever had a justifiable reason for upgrading was when my 133Mhz Pentium no longer cut the mustard. The rest have been through force of habit and, for a time, because we used to be paid incentives. So.....I would splurge on hardware every two to three years whether it was necessary or not. I would also buy games that were on sale and never touch them again. I think that I should take a couple of steps down to more modest hardware [have already sold my Radeon HD 6870], and work through my back catalogue without the distraction of messing around with the latest games.

I have been similarly stupid with my cellphone. Almost two years ago, I signed up for a Cell C ControlChat 100 contract for R80 a month because I was seduced by the idea of owning something as [relatively speaking] fancy as a Samsung Star [this is coming from someone who was previously in the R120 or less mobile device category...] What I find has happened is though I am sending many more SMSes than I used to, and using the internet a fair amount, I still hardly ever make voice calls, and so usually end up rolling over to R200-R300 a month before I forfeit it.

I don't feel comfortable with this at all.

Some context: I take home R2900 a month.

Your working as either a petrol attendent or a cashier because thats the price of the regulated industry. What exactly do you do again?

As far as your pc goes why exactly are you taking a step back? Is times really that hard? Because I can't see you getting the proper resell value.

Umn....hehe.....if I think about it.....because I feel bad about having spent so much, want to try to make amends, and want to force myself to finish my older games [which is easier now that I have sold my graphics card].....it's an emotional thing, as most of my decisions have been and are, and I think with my heart.... :oops:

Probably because I don't do much compared to other employees.....search for tenders daily, download cellphone billing information and rearrange it, sometimes check documents for spelling and grammatical errors, edit pictures, find information online. People usually leave after a year or two because places like EOH, SITA, or Real People pay more.

Still.....I least I have a job.

SP I suggest you wait, decide what your max payable is and decide what you want to go for then buy it for that purpose in mind. Besides the new intel socket is 1150 and still waiting on the successor to the 2011. Not to mention I want something truly mindblowing up from the gtx680.

Are there times you lose interest in computers and technology and consider selling or tossing out some or all of it?

Moods. Impose a cool off time on all you decisions - a week maybe.

I sometimes feel similarly.

Thanks.

Well I managed to find buyers for most of my toys during lunchbreak. 8)











Kidding. I guess that decision calls for a cool-off time too?

without dressing it up in that fancy-schmancy edu-speak of yours, can you tell me more about appling? (in particular, how it works with leave).

do you throw it at anyone? leave it somewhere obvious and they issue a pumpkin in approval/tomato in rejection?

just when i thought i'd gotten a handle on this leave thing, they go and introduce an organic option.... :x
