...Unca Sargy's a happy geek today... :D

 

 

...WHO LUVS YA, BABY!!...

A long, long time ago, but I can still remember,
How the Trolling used to make me smile.
And I knew if I had my chance, I could egg on a few Trolls to "dance",
And maybe we'd be happy for a while.
But then Krackhead left and so did Klown;
Volo and Turnip were banned, Mystake got run out o' town.
Bad news on the Front Page,
BIOweenia said goodbye in a heated rage.
I can't remember if I cried
When I heard that TORN was recently fried,
But sadness touched me deep inside,
The day...Black Isle died.


For tarna, Visc, an' the rest o' the ol' Islanders that fell along the way

Uh, my computer hasn't been upgraded since, well, never actually. It has been the same for the past six years.

One billion b-balls dribbling simultaneously throughout the galaxy. One trillion b-balls being slam dunked through a hoop throughout the galaxy. I can feel every single b-ball that has ever existed at my fingertips. I can feel their collective knowledge channeling through my viens. Every jumpshot, every rebound and three-pointer, every layup, dunk, and free throw. I am there.

All I know about my computer is that it used to be a Dell server until my friend made it all fancy and gave it to me. Now it puts everything to shame, especially after it became self-aware about two weeks ago.

Since this is about Computers, should this be in the Computers and Console forum?

 

Instead of making comments like this, you should try adding something to the conversation. You obviously know how, since you did it in your second post.

 

As for the original topic... whats in my PC? Home, office or laptop?

 

Office? The jawesomest stuff imaginable. Lets just say I'm not using the minimum specs machine at the office.

 

Home? Its been 3 years since I bought it, so I don't remember all the specs. Its a 3ghz hyper-threaded p4, nVidia 6800 GTX with 256mb, 1 gig of kingston RAM - I'll probably grab another stick of RAM from a cereal box, or something. Its dirt cheap nowaday.

 

Laptop sucks. I only use it for checking e-mail on the go and typing up documents. So yeah, it sucks.

What I have you couldn't brag about at all. But it works fine. :) I upgrade only when a game I want won't run or I desperately need for graphic/photos, which in the past meant "every 3-4 years or so" but now means "every 1.5 years or so." I need to build a new one soon for the new vid card tech. But I'm not in a big hurry since whatever I build will be outdated 2 seconds after I walk out of the parts store, no matter when I build it, so I probably won't upgrade the MB/vid tech until...a game I want won't run. :)

:D I believe that's called a KVM switch Lady :- ( keyboard, video, mouse ).

For extra points, how many port is it ( how many computers can you hook up to it/what is the keystroke command )?

My thingie is a cheap little device that has one port, and I have to double-hit Scroll Lock. Which has been a pain because I have to re-map keys for other programs that use that. I'll have to get something better tho when I build a 3rd PC.

 

Hubby has 6 PC's on a long table, sharing one monitor - he uses something a bit fancier than I do. :o

Scrl Lk/Scrl Lk/Enter ( or 1,2 ) is usually the command for a two port KVM. I've got a 4 port ( about $50 USD ) and am building a two port into the computer I'm assembling right now. I've seen them go up to 16 port ( for server rooms ) but hear they are terribly expensive. Since Hubby has so many systems, I assume he does that sort of thing proffessionally and probably can get a used one on the cheap. If he doesn't already know this, KVM switches can be stacked as long as the keyboard commands differ. My 4 port will move from PC to PC but once it hits my new computer, I give a different key command and it will switch the new computer internally. Num Lock/Num Lock ( 1,2,3,4 ) will flip it out of the new rig again.

I'll tell you what I told both my kids...start saving and buy your 'Dream System' while you're still living with your folks. When you get out on your own, you ain't gonna have any 'toy money' till you get to my age. :) ( unless, of course, you 'marry up' like Sarge is doing ) :)

BTW...to you guys that don't know what's in your magic box, download this software...

http://www.freedownloadscenter.com/Utiliti...me_Edition.html

It'll tell you everything about your system from hardware ( and benchmarks ), software ( versions included ) and even the registry keys for the software in case you've lost them.

Best of all...it's free! I load it on every system I work on.
