Jim is one of the founding members of the Atomic Danger Squad.

 

 

No, that's because Jim is a dirty snitch who ratted me out. :thumbsup:

Actually, Jim tried taking the blame upon himself and sent a credible threat to the mod team that caused me to curse his name and tear apart my system and rebuild it to counter the 'threat' he posed. :bat:

 

His trying to cover your ass actually caused me to even more secure my rig. Not sure I'm going to thank him for it though :wink: .

 

 

You actually believed him? Hee hee :lol:

Not so much. :wink:

After scaning my HD with the three AV that I had installed in my system, I found the threat to be reasonably minimal. However, the threat alone caused me to rethink my existing system and reconfigure it from 3 firewalls/AV using WinXX to 6 firewalls using various mixed OS. More hardware and additional learning on my part to further 'harden' my system. Had about a two hour conversation with an admin of security of a banking security IT dude about setting up a secure rig. Required adding/reconfiguring hardware that I already had in my system to block what 'Jim' had suggested as a threat. I continue to learn and further expand my system's security and genually appreciate the experience of upgrading my system to meet the new needs, I just don't like having a gun put to my head to do so.

 

I guess that I should be gratefull to 'Jim' for the lesson although it frosts my balls to admit that :wink: . I have better rig because of it.

Is that new rig a Mac?

Well, that was a nice piece of Obsidian forums history.

I hate HP so much. Their old practices used to annoy the bleeding crap out of me. (imagery not intentional) My old computer was one of theirs. They don't give you any discs. Which is a ridiculous hassle when your hard drive craps out and you want to reinstall the operating system on a new one. Going without while I wait for them to mail me not an OEM OS disc, but a bloated driver/special offer/OS/crap program bundle is not what I like to do.

No laptops come with a proper OS disc, they all have these rdiculous bundles with "restore" cd's. What I have done is just to wipe the HDD clean and install everything by hand with my own OS discs and software.

 

Since this one comes with Vista, I have to wipe it, since Vista is for 3D software what sugar in the gastank is for engines.

I had a 486 desktop HP many moons ago. I remember that my dad bought my first CD-ROM player for it, and we had to get a blacksmith to do a custom piece of metal, so that we could install the CD-ROM on it.

Earlir this week, I was inches away from selling my old laptop to a Mac-user. Sadly for him, some archeology student coughed up more money and as the man of bussiness that I am, I sold it to her instead :thumbsup:

The Atomic Danger Squad is always looking for new members by the way.

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.

I was going to revive the place, you know, with like, 40 cent wing nights, or LIVE NUDE GIRLS, and coupons or something.
