1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Posers. But hey I've only run Slack virtualized, so I'm a poser too [​IMG] Running Debian no less.

    I'm still using Fedora. I haven't used Slackware in a loooong time.

    It's 4chan's Technology subforums, where neckbeards have flamewars over what's the superior OS, GUI/Linux distros and troll each other. It's a nice place for learning more about computers, though.

    The farther away I am from 4chan the better I feel as a human being.

    I remember the first time I visited /fa/, their Fashion forums. The first and most popular thread was filled with gay porn, the other two was complaining about how expensive most of the brands SF and sufu liked were, and the rest were about Nike Dunks, camwhores, and guides to shoplifting.

    +1 to this topic.

    My iPhone started erroring up a month ago due to a hardware problem, 1 month after my AppleCare warranty expired.

    Now it randomly starts recovery mode looping, and sometimes doesn't even make it past the boot screen. Restoring my phone (when I can, last night I was trying for 2 hours without success) is a hassle when you have to do it every day, and you don't know when it's gonna die on you.

    Ugh, I'll probably just open it up and try to fix it myself. Apparently they make the internals easy to work on, numbering everything, for their staff at the "genius" bar.

    I have a Mac, and I normally run Parallels with Windows... It's the best of both worlds in one package.

    I find Bootcamp is much better than VMs, since you don't have to split power and resources between partitions.

    Understandable; however, there are advantages to running both simultaneously.

    about two years ago i got a ipod mini as a gift,it worked for a total of one day before it froze never to be reset again.
    one single day...that was all the convincing i needed to buy from them again.
    on the other side i have never EVER had a problem with cheap Acers or any HP products.
    PS Apples are for eating.

    You have been re-educated and are now another cog in the corporate advertising strategy cooked up in Cupertino, California in the 1980's.

    In a starbucks?

    And for the record, I don`t go to Starbucks, as their coffee tastes horrible. [​IMG]

    Did you just edge out the edginess of regular apple users?

    I love MAC. The best response to somebody who likes to talk about their MAC is to refer to them, and the company, as MAC. [​IMG]

    Apple Customer Support is horrible. Very poorly trained - if trained at all.
