      When it Rains it Pours.

      1 week ago

      So I got my Corsair 750 back from Corsair after the RMA Request Yesterday. Before I get ready to yank my tower out for the 5th time in 2 months I decide to have some hot chocolate while playing Skyrim MMO.

      Well Dumbass me using the Achievement Hunter Coffee mug for the first time didn't realize how tall the glass is knocked it over. Backwards RIGHT onto my surround sound unit. Panic rush of 10 OZ of milk hot chocolate to spill out of the unit, onto the floor and then flip over to start the surgery process of removing all the milk and sugar. About 5 hours later I get it as clean as I can get it at 8 am and go to sleep. It's still in pieces right now and am about to plug the parts back together just to see if it will boot.

      No blown capacitors, no scorch marks, hopefully it will work.

      Also, if it does work then I'll have to blame the 5+ years of dust buildup that is on the different boards that protected the electronics so they don't blow up.

      If it doesn't work then I've got a trip to Frys to make and get a new 5.2 Sony unit for 200$


      Ohyeah, I also have RTX in 2 weeks so bring on the stress!!! >.<

      bragbabgsgssbfb computer.

      1 month ago

      So after about 400$ and getting a new motherboard, processor, AND power supply my desktop computer is finally running. Got the mobo and CPU in on Saturday, and it was doing the same things as the other one... okay, only thing left is the power supply.

      Quick trip to frys and I got a cheap 500w power supply. Installed. Stays on longer (and my other motherboard with my video card in PICE 1 runs) but still doesn't make it more than 45 seconds. Decided enough of a headache, dinner and FarCry 4 for a bit.

      Back to it before I fall asleep and decide to read the instruction book. This motherboard has 2 tiny switches so that it can have 2 BIOSes. Some overclocking feature I'll never use and it was set up to fail with bios 1 working but asking for bios 2 to confirm to work. Flip the switch, boots for 15 min before powering down!.

      So plug it all back up together in my rig. It boots to blue screen... make it show me what it's booting to bluescreen without restarting and it's 0X0000007B. Means virus or improper HDD setup. How did I set up the HDD wrong? removed the other drives, changed out the sata cable and same thing. went to bios, dug around and there's an option HOW to boot the hard drives. as Raid. as scsi or IDE. my primary drive is a 1TB IDE HDD, so flipped that switch int he bios. Look at that, I see my desktop now! and it's installing the drivers for my new motherboard.

      I want to sleep but can't let this thing mess me up. have to be up for work in 4 hours....

      The system is down

      1 month ago

      So my rig, which I use to work from home on has an issue where it won't stay on. I've taken it apart piece by piece and I know these things. With only the Power Supply, mobo, processor, memory and video card attached it only stays on for 10 seconds to 6 minutes. Right now I'm in the process of re-applying thermal paste to see if that may be the issue but I've got a suspicion that because it doesn't display or sound an error it's a motherboard problem. Windows thinks it's at fault when it boots so wants to go to safe mode or start up repair. No HDD plugged in and it restarts at the BIOS.

      So also with my numbers the power supply is about 13 months old. The mobo/processor is 5 years 4 months old.

      So either I get the old unit working somehow or I have to spend 300$ for a new mobo/processor. already looking at the i5 4460 and an appropriate motherboard.

      Avengers 2!

      3 months ago

      It was cool. Nice to see how they're not touching the whole mutant thing. Sad though that Wolverine won't ever be in the series because he IS a mutant. Unless they do an alternate dimension thing that also explains the Fantastic 4 reboot.

      But one thing I hated about it.

      I had to watch it in 3d.

      Well that's not the part I hated, the 3d parts were good and it was the only good seats available when I ordered the tickets for the Alamo last week for Thursday night. The terrible part of the 3d was before the movie even started.

      Star Wars The Force Awakens had it's trailer in 3d. Star wars 7 is going to be put into the 3d shit show. Fuck.

      I literally said fuck out loud at the theater when the lucasfilm logo came on screen. X-WINGS LOOK TERRIBLE IN 3D, STICK TO THE GOOD 2D PHOTOGRAPHY SKILLS.

      Avengers was good. bad guys are Hydra and Ultron. Good guys are everyone else except for Daredevil, agents of SHIELD and Guardians of the Galaxy.

      Why I'm a Rooster Teeth fan.

      3 months ago

      Because the RvB series is funny as dicks. When RT release a bad show they accept that and turn it into a running joke. They get paid to make awesome commercials (that can be found at ) and have grown into a full on production studio.

      The community. It's the most amazing community site out there because it has been very stable and secure since forever. Not needing to jump on any new bandwagon or do stupid shit like only upvotes for posts and an effective blocking system. The pictures, profiles, and everything that makes up a good community with communication and notifications. No stupid combination of the word of the minute with what is popular now. stick with what is good and works well!.

      It moved me. If it wasn't for RTX2011 I would never have experienced what Austin is like and would probably still be living in Metro Detroit bouncing between dead end jobs. That first night experiencing the 84 degree weather really changed my feelings of what hot weather was. In MI 84 was always humid and ick. With Texas 107 is just how. get in some shade and stay hydrated and it's much more comfortable.

      It also lost me, a LOT of weight. If it wasn't for the Fit4RTX thing then I would have never gone on a diet and lost all this weight. I've still been on the not eat shit diet and my weight loss has been gradual since the first 50 lbs was dropped. My pants are down a foot in the waist, my shirts have lost 2 Xes and total lbs lost so far is 70 lbs as of the last time I weighed myself.

      Being a fan of Rooster Teeth is the healthiest and best lifestyle choice I've ever made.

      Hot Tub Time Machine 2??

      5 months ago

      So that movie comes out this weekend. Today actually and I feel like I've already seen it. I know the premise (Lou gets his dick shot off at a party) and after he starts to heal he, Jacob and Nick (because John Cusack didn't want to come back) decide to use the hot tub to go back in time to before he got shot and stop the shooting but what ended up happening was that they got sent to the future instead and then they find out the shooter is a british guy from the future and Chevy Chase explains the rules of the time machine, in about as much sense that guy gives. Then it goes to the past and Lou comes out from the portal from the Revolutionary war.

      This about sums up what I remember from most movies but did I see the movie years before it was released or something? If these are spoilers then I feel awesome and only wish my futuresight showed me lottery winnings.

      NVM, I just watched the red band trailer. THAT RELEASED BACK IN JULY 2014. They really need 8 months to finish a movie when part of the premise is that it is supposed to start in 2014 and is getting delivered in 2015.

      Ther decay of Metro Detroit

      5 months ago

      Over the years I've seen pictures of some of the abandoned houses in Detroit, just moved out of, ransacked, burned down and then razzed to the ground. Never got to me because growing up I've always know Detroit was a shithole. But there's one thing in the area that I loved going to that that is the Pontiac Silverdome. 80K seat indoor stadium where Bigfoot first crushed cars on the field after Truck Pulls back in the 70's and the Lions played Football. I remember it more for the party in the pits before the monster truck shows where I stood on top of the wheels of Bigfoot, Micro Machines, Goldberg, and Grave Digger. Even went to the motocross events because motorsports.

      It was fun trip the night of truck pulls because we'd all pile in dad's truck, make the 45 minute drive from Dearborn Heights north to Pontiac on Telegraph Rd, driving through the suburbs, knowing that sweep down to the left and then back up to the right meant we were only 10 min out before we could see the dome and be in parking traffic. Just an awesome experience to go to once a year when I was growing up.

      But today I was at the local Fox 2 station's site for Metro Detroit cause I wanted to see snow and this article popped up. Goddamn... that's quite heartbreaking to me. I mean I can go with a building being demolished and then new stuff put up but to see it in such disrepair where the fuckin ceiling collapsed and destroyed seating sections. Just wow... And that's only been 2 years since it collapsed! The big snowstorm in 2012 took out the roof and they haven't fixed it since, now it seems like the largest stadium in the NFL until 1996 is just another run down building like the train station or the housing projects in Detroit.

      This is what it used to look like.

      And now it's just another mess. At least it looks good from the road.

        Huh. well this is odd. That part is taken from one of my Community Hunter videos. Right Here. But I don't know who has the rights to the Community Hunter videos. I never acknowledged that they could use the video. But I don't know who has the rights on the Community Hunter channel.

      Happy Valentine's Day dude! Thanks for being a great friend. I'm glad I somehow came across your hotel room post in the forum way back last year. Getting to meet you and Zack, and you helped make RTX a super fun experience. I can't wait to see what will happen at this year's RTX. I'm sure we'll have even more great times!
