That's because most people live in shitbox, ugly-as-sin apartments built in the 90s or later. Contemporary apartments use cheap, cheap, cheap materials, and cut corners like nobody's business, and have no style whatsoever. Give me a 1920s place any day of the week. I'll pay the top dolla to retrofit it as needed. That...

I'm just about going to give up and abandon this threak the way I had to bail on the True Blood threak. People are dumb a-holes, and it seems book spoilers are here to stay. Real shame folks can't keep their nerd-boners in their pants for the sake of...

I've never managed to fry any of my hardware from overheating, but I've gotten very nervous -- especially when doing halfway serious amounts of gaming on my Windows partition. After a few hours, the computer starts to burn like a pizza fresh out of a brick oven. I've tweaked the fan...
Quote: Originally Posted by MikeDT Never heard of that one. You're incredibly fortunate, and I pray you remain so. The bug results when the system-controlled super-administrator profile goes a little haywire and essentially seizes control over every facet of your machine, locking you out of certain key functions. One of the fun side effects is that the system turns every folder and every path on your hard drive to permanent read-only status....

So, so, so, so, so, so, so many. Many of them critical and nigh-unfixable when they crop up, too. Such as the infamous "read-only" permissions bug, from which my Win7 boot suffered until I threw my hands up in frustration and just wiped and reinstalled the...
