Stuff that breaks...

Posted 12-21-2010 at 09:31 PM by lupusarcanus (Lone Wolf)

Why does all my stuff break? I know I'm not the pinnacle of gentleness but I see other people treating their stuff a hundred times worse and WORKS JUST FINE. Guys on Youtube dropping their *$*&$*& laptops on &*^$#$% purpose and they WORK JUST FINE. Why can't I do that?

Just had a pair of Dynex headphones break. Sure, they aren't brand new (my mom gave them to me) but seriously, wtf. THey have no physical damage whatsoever. They look BRAND NEW.

I have a...

I just wanted to install gEdit (my favorite text editor/IDE ) on Mac OS X and gcc44 is taking HOURS to compile. It sucks because it makes my laptop a usable stove. Not good.

Why does Wi-Fi have to be such a pain in Linux?

Posted 12-20-2010 at 09:40 AM by ichase

I have read that this has been an ongoing issue in the Linux community. With a number of tools out there that will supposedly correct this, IE Ndiswrapper, WICD, WIFI Radar etc; you would think that this would be something that would work right out of the box.

On top of that, there is no native vent client for Linux or any of the BSD's, and most of the team we game with don't want to convert to TeamSpeak due...

Once again we are shown Microsoft knows how to fix their operating system, but chooses not to

This drives me insane.

Microsoft has just released version 2 of their free Security Essential antimalware suite. In the comments, people are praising how 'Great it is', how 'Microsoft is getting it right' and 'Linux sucks because no one makes an equivalent to this'.

Listen to me, you have all been lead.

If Microsoft can provide a free anti-malware...
