  1. My experience with the mechanical keyboards, they are much better than the common rubber dome keyboard. I found them rather nice and clicky, I didn't need to press the key all the way down like I did with the rubber dome keyboard. Just I was playing Super Meat Boy I was playing better on the keyboard then I was on the Xbox 360 controller, three finger on the WASD is better than one thumb on the stick or the D-Pad. I was also playing Sonic 1 and Sonic CD, the result were pretty much the same.




    Beside me, anybody else had any experience with Mechanical Keyboards?

  2. Smf isn't bad either, there's plenty of ways to get a front page with that.


    However, it's quite daring to call it a solid foundation, especially with the number of script issues and upgrade moans you'll receive in the long run. :P


    Oh as for security, i wouldn't call SMF Un-hackable, it has had it's days in the past with a couple friends i know who used it.


    Smf Api's, needs a bit of updating, but it can definitely do what's already being done here.


    In short everything free has problems, but then again this isn't really true I've seen plenty of sql injections in the past with IPB and even some with vb....


    ... May be mybb should also be considered in this scenario? it does have sdk support, but from what i've read it's incomplete, but available for use.


    Wedge is a fork of SMF, the developers behind Wedge are taking security very seriously, they went as far as criticizing the fact that SMF 2 was in BETA and RC for too long. :D

  3. Yes Emsley, it does piss me off.


    Well Ken, I'm always willing to take risk, at least earthquake are not as boring as suicide bombers, there were quite a few jobs going for web developers (NOC 2175) in the job bank, perhaps more going outside the bank. Anywhere is better than England. :(

  4. I had a KFC in Florida, the food was horrible. British KFC is alright except the fries, but Texas Chicken is way better.


    Me and my family are planning to immigrate and move to BC! I'm going as an independent, I already applied for one job in Victoria so far. I'm aware that I have to sit the English test (IELTS), thanks to non-native speakers who abused the system.


    @Robert, me and my family was planning to go to New Zealand, but the Nursing Council of New Zealand takes the piss, they expect 7's in each band of the English test. In Canada it's 6.5 in each band except for listening part which is 7.

  5. Things might be getting worse with DisplayPort, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thunderbolt_(interface) how silly can Intel and Apple get? I'm now confident that USB3 will win.


    Thunderbolt (originally codenamed Light Peak) is an interface for connecting peripheral devices to a computer via an expansion bus. Thunderbolt was developed by Intel and brought to market with technical collaboration from Apple Inc. It was introduced commercially on Apple's updated MacBook Pro lineup on February 24, 2011, using the same port and connector as Mini DisplayPort.
  6. What in the hell is the point of this Mini Display Port crap? It's an Apple proprietary connector that has no real world use beyond their own products, so why do I keep seeing it on video cards? We all know you can't use anything but an Apple Badged and Bios'ed card in a(actual) MAC.


    From wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DisplayPort


    DisplayPort is designed to replace digital (DVI) and analog component video (VGA) connectors in computer monitors and video cards, as well as replace internal digital LVDS links in computer monitor panels and TV panels. DisplayPort can provide the same functionality as HDMI but is not expected to displace HDMI in high-definition consumer electronics devices.


    In December 2010 it was announced that several computer vendors and display makers including Intel, AMD, Dell, Lenovo, Samsung and LG would stop using LVDS from 2013 and legacy DVI and VGA connectors from 2015, replacing them with DisplayPort and HDMI.


    Probably to make the video cards more future proof. You might want to have a look at advantages over legacy standards (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DisplayPort#Advantages_over_legacy_standards)


    The one feature I like with DisplayPort 1.2 is the ability to daisy chain up to four monitors!

  7. Im going to be opening my rig up tomorrow and giving it the once over hopefully install Windows7 (cracked)...


    Don't download or use the cracked version of Windows 7, download an unmodified copy from a torrent site, on google search up "windows loader" and download that as well. After installing windows 7 don't enter in the product key and go to the next step, once you get to the desktop run windows loader and follow the instructions. After that your copy of windows should be activated.

  8. I have came to conclusion, it not worth it for the UK users at least, the UK price is anything but justified, the UK price tag for the lowest specs iMac is £1,020 (~US$1,637.74), while in the US it's $1,199 (~GB£746.81). To make price comparison fairer, add VAT(20%, Tax) to the US price tag then it's £896.17. Translation cost is not a good excuse.


    Terrible practice, Apple not the only one that pulls off that kind of practices, Adobe still does it and Microsoft ceased from doing that, the only reason why MS product are expensive in the UK is because of high tax rates (20%) and that understandable.


    As for the Mac Pro, I like the fact that they used passive heatsink for the CPU's and the fact they place it horizontally so it does not cause stress to the board. They sure thought that out well.


    As for the US users, I let the US users decide.


    Hey ken, the thing with the FreeBSD license is the fact is that there is no requirement of redistributing the source code modified or unmodified and also allows re-licensing unlike the GPL license, at the end of the day there is just no perfect open source license.
