#2068855 Official 'What Did You Buy/Receive for Christmas' Thread

Posted by MJCRO on 22 December 2012 - 06:51 PM in OCC Member's Lounge

Bought myself a iPhone 5.




#2067446 Newtown Massacre

Posted by MJCRO on 14 December 2012 - 02:27 PM in OCC Member's Lounge

My brother has a tuning shop in Danbury, which is right next to Newtown. So crazy how something like this can happen so close to home. We live in a sick eff'n country when stuff like this can happen to KIDS. R.I.P. to all those who died.

 

P.S. Don't make this into a stupid gun control thread or whatever. This is a grieving and general discussion thread.

#2065608 Far Cry 3

Posted by MJCRO on 05 December 2012 - 07:49 PM in Gaming

Beat the game yesterday? Have you heard of this thing called the Sun? You can go out and it will shine in your face. It's pretty cool.


Haha, I have to admit I did binge last weekend with the game. Posted Image But I can't lie though, it's been a while since I've played a game as good as this one.



#2065604 Far Cry 3

Posted by MJCRO on 05 December 2012 - 07:03 PM in Gaming

Beat the game yesterday. DEFINITELY worth buying.



#2062945 Are we talking about condoms, or Android?

Haha that's hilarious.

Looks good.



#2062282 No more Twinkies D:

Posted by MJCRO on 17 November 2012 - 05:28 PM in OCC Member's Lounge

I always thought twinkies were sort of disgusting, never tried it. Can't say I'll miss it, either.


Same haha. Think I ate one once...



#2062095 No more Twinkies D:

Union=0
Workers=0

People continue to see that Unions are no longer the way to go. They cost jobs long term.


This.

Unions made sense back in the day when corruption and worker mistreatment were rampant. Today it's useless with all the laws and civil protections the law provides.

Good job to those idiots who put themselves out of work. Now no one has a job.



#2061854 3dMark 11

When 2013 comes, I'm starting a new 3DMark11 thread. Freaking no one updates this thing.



#2061852 GTX 680M or Radeon 7970M

Posted by MJCRO on 15 November 2012 - 03:05 PM in Miscellaneous Hardware

Read about it, yet you also conclude with the sad truth, it haz not started ze shipping :0 ! Atleast not in my country (expensive Norway....).



It's really neck and neck between the 680M and the 7970M. I would go with the 680M if it were me.

Benchmarks for HD 7970M here.
Benchmarks for GTX 680M here.

Whichever one you go, neither is a bad choice.



#2061848 GTX 680M or Radeon 7970M

Posted by MJCRO on 15 November 2012 - 02:58 PM in Miscellaneous Hardware

Look into getting a GTX 680MX. It's the newest mobile Kepler GPU out now. It features the full 1536SP's found on the desktop GTX 680. Not sure if they started shipping laptops with it though.



#2061847 Hurricane Sandy

Stop downloading so much pom! :P


Lol shhhh. Posted Image



#2061846 Hurricane Sandy

Posted by MJCRO on 15 November 2012 - 02:56 PM in OCC Member's Lounge

Well I know a lot of carriers were waving overage charges in Sandy-affected areas, so you may be okay! Look into it.


Haha yeah, I actually got a text from AT&T yesterday. Chances are they probably did waive the fees.



#2061718 Hurricane Sandy

Posted by MJCRO on 14 November 2012 - 07:14 PM in OCC Member's Lounge

Ah, three days isn't too bad. That seems to be what the minimum was for anyone who lost power. It sucks you still had to wait for Internet/TV/phone, but at least you had heat and lights and a working fridge. lol



I tethered my GNex those 3 days and blew the 3GB cap in the first day. Posted Image



#2061711 Hurricane Sandy

Posted by MJCRO on 14 November 2012 - 06:39 PM in OCC Member's Lounge

Indeed it was. I'm not even in a bad area...I'm right in the middle of the island, so well outside any flood zone. Sure, trees came down, but treecutters took care of that right away....then it took around twelve days to even see a LIPA truck in my town. Ridiculous.

Oh, and you'll love this: When LIPA finally showed up in my backyard to rewire some lines, one of the guys up on the pole lost his grip and the live wire fell to the ground, causing and explosion and sending a surge into my house that blew out the breaker and a GFI in one of the bathrooms. Fire department showed up. Luckily the breaker was still usable, just singed, so an electrician was able to come and switch out the GFI, but initially it looked like it could be another week.


Wow. Thank god it's wasn't anything worst. By my house we only lost power for like 3 days. A tree came down just around the corner from my house and was hanging on the power line. Took 3 days for some guys to show up and cut the tree down, then bam, we got power back. But it wasn't till another 3 days we had internet, TV, and phone back. This storm was retarded haha.





#2061707 Hurricane Sandy

Posted by MJCRO on 14 November 2012 - 06:21 PM in OCC Member's Lounge

Though some of you are already aware, I guess I should post here....

I finally have power back!

Got it back last night. Was without it for 358.5 hours. No, that's not a typo, that is indeed 14 days 22 hours and 30 minutes.

It's nice to be back on my desktop PC again.


Really happy for you dude! From watching News 12, I can see it was a real mess out the island with that joke of power company LIPA. Posted Image

#2061188 New video card for 2560x1440 display

Posted by MJCRO on 12 November 2012 - 07:58 PM in Video Cards and Monitors
