The inactivity of this forum.
Thu Apr 02, 2015 11:06 pm by Burkman
It's depressing to see how inactive it has been recently. I mean, everybody is pretty much primarily posting in the never ending thread now and there's not enough people here to make this place really booming. We need to find some way to bring more people here before this place just fades into nothingness...

I know for a fact that a lot of boards out there are thriving because of how many people are there. We just need to get back into the game and pull people here. However, where we obtain these people might matter, because we don't to end up pulling in douches like those at Selkath.

I understand that people are busy these days, but it doesn't seem like they're rarely at their computer anymore. I know most of you are still dicking around with your computer. I don't know how we …

Why does everyone think I'm rich?

My dad's going to be buying all the parts, yes, but he's saving up for them. This isn't the kind of thing where you can just whip your wallet out of your ass and buy it.

Soup, can you give me an opinion on which computer is better?

The second one.

It's not as powerful in some cases, but it's way more reliable. The video card on the first one is horrible, and replacing it will cost you extra. And another thing is the power supply. I don't think 250 watts to run a machine that powerful is enough. It's going to lack in endurance, and efficiency, meanwhile the one from newegg has 450 watts, which is more then enough.

All you're really losing is 500GB from your HDD, but considering you still have 1TB, that should be more then enough. And you're losing 0.1 ghz on your processor speed. That's not even enough to make a difference.

Will the second one rape TOR? what could be improved, or is everything satisfactory?

Yeah, the second one should be able to run TOR on max settings. It's an MMO. They're made with minimal system requirements in mind. There's really nothing you could improve on that much, except for buying a quad core processor, but's it's probably not worth it until the other one dies out first.

Soup, you go to Europe for vacations. The only country I've been to besides the U.S. is Mexico. Which is Spain's little bitch kid.
