Why do you have the periodic table in your room? You're not at college are you? :D

And why do you have so many laptops?

@ Ash
Some new graphics cards need an extra source of power, other than that I wouldn't see why it would not work. Mine needs that, though it wasn't a problem. If you want I can look in the manual again.

btw I have a periodic system too, though another layout. They rock :D.

@ Ali
I'll post some when I get home :p.

Offtopic: There is research going on about hydrogen power but it's not as easy as it seems. I happen to have been taught about it ;).

I have a periodic table because it looks cool, very geeky I know and I do chemistry its a lot harder than your media studies.

I have laptops as I have no space for desktops in my room laptops bundle everything into one.

Ali, I don't do media studies. I've actually told you what I do. I can't help it if you're too stupid to remember.


Anyway, to prevent this post being ENTIRELY offtopic, here's my rig...in 2 pictures, since it won't all fit in one ;) The scanner was salvaged off my old comp, btw. The keyboard is older than the PC, which is younger than the speakers, which are younger than the keyboard, which is younger than the mouse, which in turn is younger than the scannerm which is older than the printer :p

Absolutely. Because I do chemistry, and because my life depends upon me knowing the atomic number of Iridium.


It's 77, btw.

I took the case off some time ago because I heard weird noises and haven't put it back yet ;).

The Power Supply has green, red and blue lights. Unfortunately this wasn't so easy to photograph, as my camera is a bit bad when it's "too dark" in its eyes.
100_1648_0.25.jpg

The actual computer, the external hard drive, the subwoofer and a lot of wires.
100_1658_0.25.jpg

The monitor, one of the two speakers, and the VCR.

The laptop from uni, not that great but at least it works.

This one's for Ali :D

What's wrong with the colour?

And yeah, I also wonder why uni put Win2000 on my laptop (indeed it's a Toshiba) when there's an XP sticker on it. That's just lol..

Ali, that computer doesn't even HAVE a case. I think Blaat must've taken the cover off to make it cooler. I wouldn't do that with mine; it'd only make it dustier. And as we all know, dust is a killer.

So many wires...luckily mine are all tucked away :D



I'd love to see Apollo's rig. Probably it's held together with spit and sticky-tape, steam bursting from the welds of the case due to overwork :ohmy: How his PSU's holding on, I'm not sure...guy has his running for weeks on end without a turn-off. Not unusual for a server, but for a home PC...

Dudes, learn to read. :D I stated I took it off:

I took the case off some time ago because I heard weird noises and haven't put it back yet :grin:.

I took it off because I heard weird noises coming out of it. I put it back when they seemed gone, then they returned. It happened a couple of times so I decided to keep it off for a while. I'm going to buy a new HD soon and am keeping it off until then.

And yes there's a lot of wires. A few are not used anymore, the old dialup modem is still there, somewhere ^_^. I just haven't removed it. My external HD has two wires, the subwoofer speaker system has two, the microphone has one, so do the VCR and the printer and that's most of what's there I think.

And :ohmy: @ that last comment.

Hrod: Does your mouse recharge? Naturally, they're less frustrating than those which run on regular AAs...

Yeah, it has two Li-ion battery packs.

My mouse.

At school, in our tech lab we have almost the same mice for our comps, 'cept they're wired...

OLD SIG
When history witnesses a great change Razgriz reveals itself,
first as a dark demon. As a demon it uses it power to rain death upon the land,
and then it dies. However after a period of slumber Razgriz returns
As the demon sleeps, man turns on man.
Its own blood, and madness soon cover the earth.
From the depths of despair awaken the Razgriz.
Its raven wings ablaze in majestic light.
Amidst the eternal waves of time
From a ripple of change shall the storm rise
Out of the abyss peer the eyes of a demon
Behold the Razgriz, its wings of black sheath
The demon soars through the dark skies
Fear and Death trail its shadow beneath
Until Men united wield a hallowed sabre
In Final Reckoning, the beast is slain.
Razgriz intrerpretation

They probably aren't G5s though, cause they cost $50 a pop. They are probably MX510s or something similar.

No, they were the same thing, because $50,000 was spent on the tech lab, to update it for a class called Principles of Engineering. The comps are Dell XPS with expanded HDs and flat screen monitors. 50-some comps in all were bought, add software to that, and the enhancement project used used almost all of its funding on that. They got the wired version of your mouse. They came with the comps.
Edit: I just looked on that sight. They are the same thing.
