  1. I'm the last person to help with a mobile phone.I'm still using this dino... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samsung_Galaxy_Prevail
  2. lol, in my case,kinda hoarding. I have a few WD 20Gb ide drives that each have XP sp3 installed on them a friend gave me when they upgraded the comps @ the college he was working at.I have some floppies but no drive for them,8 & 16 Mb video cards still sitting in a bin with some modems and other parts.And that's just off the top of my head. I also rebuild old comps & give them away,but I try to upgrade them as much as possible,so most of the parts sitting around probably need to be recycled.I just need to work up the get go.
  3. Going through a box,I ran across some interesting things. #1 Try AOL 90 DAY RISK FREE! (Disk is still sealed in the envelope with the code for me AND a friend on the back!) lol #2 Getting Started Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition (Product key is on the book) #3 ATI Radeon X1300 Pro Agp graphics card.(This is gonna blow the new nvidia cards outta the water,I can just FEEL it!) This isn't even my oldest stuff. I DID let the agp dial up modem go. Feel free to list some of your back of the shelf items!
  4. Hmmmm, 1600 sponsors X's $500 = $800,000. (sigh) gotta find a way to cut more corners....
  5. ROTFL, I can hear you now... 'damn it! I'll take care of that image loading issue once and for all!" (Goes and builds a petabyte storage server...) "Rolling cache issue my ass... "
  6. Reading this thread made me want to know more about the whole minimum/maximum/actual requirements for it. I dug around a bit on line to see what I could find. Went here found some interesting results,https://www.game-debate.com/games/index.php?g_id=35975&game=Microsoft Flight Simulator&p_make=Intel&p_deriv=Core+i7-4770K+4-Core+3.5GHz&gc_make=Nvidia&gc_deriv=GeForce+GTX+980+Gigabyte+XTREME+4GB+Edition&ram=16&screenRes_width_FPS=1920&screenRes_height_FPS=1080&checkSubmit=#systemRequirements Then from the comments there I took the included screenshot.
  7. lol, I went on line looking for an 8 pin to six pin converter before I looked again and realized 1 of the 8 pins was a 6+2 pin. I was like "F*^K me..." cause I spent close to 20 minutes trying to figure out HOW I was gonna power the video card.
  8. Not a FAN cut,but one time I ran my finger down the side of an amd duron cooler to pull the build up off and ended up with 5 or 6 slices gushing blood from my finger tip.To make matters worse when I did it I hollered a profanity loud enough to get the wifes attn so she comes to see what's the matter and ask me how I got paper cuts working on the computer.
  9. Smoked a bit until the oil that'd blown by into the exhaust finally burnt off but it actually survived.
  10. lol,my brother in law did that to a van of mine(sort of) He kept adding a quart of oil when the oil light came on not realizing it was coming on @ stop signs/lights because I had the idle too low. Ended up jumping timing about 180 degrees. We drained 2 gallons of oil out & were still above the full mark.
  11. lol,that's like when I tried "delicately" moving the radiator on my AIO while it was still running from the back to the top of the case and the stiff rubber tubing pulled it outta my fingers and tossed it against the bottom of the case. THAT'S probably why I'm looking @ having to rebuild my AIO cooler. I do stupid shyte without thinking sometimes.
  12. Let's all make a thread with our most embarrassing things we've done when working on a comp. I'll start with my latest screw up. While I had Windows installing the latest greatest feature update to my wifes computer in the background,I noticed it still had the AMD software on it even though I put my old nvidia card on for her instead. Soo,I figured "Hey,I'll just run the AMD uninstaller to remove it while I'm waiting on the other stuff..." BIG mistake! I ended up with a hard drive with SIX partitions, Windows wouldn't recognize any password,and couldn't even boot into safe mode because i
  13. Ummm,I guess I need to work on getting my polls a bit tighter.
