These new forums should be able to go way beyond that 100 page limit.
That was a limitation of the old forums, in which going above 100 pages had a tendency to make everything go wonky.

Cas was right in saying that there's no reason to make a new thread every 100 pages. At this point, it's being done simply out of tradition, and not out of reason.

Paradigm.

Bleargh, I need to go on an art supply run today... if I'm lucky, I'll spend $200... and that doesn't count fighting students for brushes on Thursday. The brush lady sells $100 brushes for $10. No one knows why. Some people say she's black market and some say she buys factory rejects (but the brushes work fine...so I dunno why they're rejects) and some don't care because artists are poor because artist supplies are expensive nd all need to come from Germany or France for some stupid reason. But she comes and goes to all the schools in the area with irrationally cheap paintbrushes of professional quality.

Quick time event. Basically in a game, when you're in a cut scene, and you have limited control such as a prompt to repeatedly click A, or hold down X. By doing this it then 'controls' the cut scene.

masterfenix2009
01-29-2012, 06:05 PM
Its better than having a cutscene where you do nothing. It also lets you get immersed in the action more.

She's probably making tons more selling them that way, than she would be if she sold them at, say, $50.

It's not evidence, perhaps it implies something, but it's not enough for conviction. At most it's supporting evidence, so requires something more concrete to go with it.

I had an HTC Desire HD, then jumped ship to a Nokia N9, and am now using a BlackBerry Bold 9900.

MeeGo is by far the most interesting operating system in existence, and would easily be the best if Nokia would actually let it live.
That said, BlackBerry shows me the importance of physical keys on a device. Touchscreens can only do so much, and certain elements of the user experience can only be translated by physical ****ons. *sigh*

Anywho, for 150 GBP, don't expect to get anything exciting. Then again, it depends on what you're shopping for. If you want a phone that actually does very little phoning, and all the more interested internet-related stuff, you're not going to get very far for that price.
When purchasing something like a mobile phone, you need to make a purchase that is as future-proof as possible. At this point in time, the best thing to do would be to wait for Windows Phone 8, and see how that goes. If you lack the patience for that, then I would strongly recommend fishing for a Windows Phone 7 device, since that is easily the best operating system on the market.

Atm moment my budget is a little over £400, but since I only really need one by summer, my budget will likely increase.

I'll try to mentally adjust my estimates to the prices in the UK, as laptops here are a fair bit more expensive without any real reason.

That said, it seems like the laptop that would actually achieve the goals you have in mind would be in the £500-£700 range. I'm basing this off an averagely spec-ed lappy (i5 processor with bare minimum RAM requirements for most games and an average graphics card). The upper range would, naturally, be the faster processors (i7 and such with decent RAM and graphics card).
Again, I'm basing this off a rough estimate of prices being £200 cheaper in the UK than they are here.

I can say, though, don't expect to be playing games anywhere near their highest settings with any laptop in that price range. You can expect a medium i5 processor-running laptop to low-end i7 processor-running laptop for that money.
Laptops are much like mobile phones, in that you have to make a purchase that is as future-proof as possible. If you're not aiming for the medium-high end range of i7-running laptops, then expect yourself to need a new laptop, or to upgrade your laptop, within an easy two-three years.

You also have to consider the form-factor you are interested in. Are you interested in the standard bulks of yummy that have been the design of laptops over the last few years? Or are you more interested in the newer, slimmer line of 'ultrabooks' (not recommended for gaming)?

And then there are companies you should be wary of. In general, avoid Acer and Dell. They have a bit of a history with being wonky when it comes to reliability. Sony's VAIO line is reliable, but overly expensive. Interestingly enough, Fujitsu Siemens sells laptops that are made in Germany, and I can tell you those things do have mystical German engineering behind them; they can take a good beating. There are other companies that usually strike very, very good bargains with their almost constant supply of special offers. ASUS is one of them. They have a tendency to sell high-end laptops for bargain prices, and I'd recommend you fish for an ASUS, if you're looking for very good value. I don't believe LG or Samsung have many faults on their side, but, again, I wouldn't bother looking much into their offers when ASUS is about handing out pretty hefty lappies like cotton candy.

itsamea-mario
02-02-2012, 02:55 PM
Well chances are I'll have more more money by the time I need one.

Well I'd have preformance over looks, so I would probably go for a bulkier one.

Think I'll look into the fujitsu/siemens/ASUS ones.

Thanks for the advice.

P.S. That's because if you want anything built right, you get germans to do it.

Fujitsu Siemens was one company. Fujitsu bought out Siemens, a couple of years ago, and they now just go under the name Fujitsu.

I haven't looked through their stock anytime recent, so I'm not sure how well their offerings compare to their competitors at the moment, but they used to compete relatively well, especially considering where the computers were being manufactured.

Alienware's M11x and M14x lineup aren't all that expensive.

Yes, they are more expensive than similarly specced laptops, but the difference in price isn't all that huge. The strangest thing is the fact that ordering an Alienware from Dell's site makes them out to be ridiculously expensive, but if you were to find that exact same model in a store, the price would be way cheaper.

Religion is the enemy of mankind (whether you like it or not) whereas anime is the exact opposite. The freedom that Japanese animators have makes them able to tell whatever kind of story they want. This leads to complex & interesting characters, equally intriguing & well-written stories set in interesting locations, hilarious scenarios and brilliant feats of violence. What's not to love?

Well technically Atheism is believing that there are no such things as gods. That in itself is a religious belief.

Not believing in either option is called agnosticism and that is not a religion.

Eh, no it's a belief about god(s). Atheism is about not believing in them. Religion does not even require the existence of gods, so in no way is atheism in referring to religion in general.

Atheists are as much part of religious groups as any other religion. Though they don't like to admit it. The documentary I posted earlier provides quite a lot of examples of how atheists often refer to scientists and scientific books in the same way Christians refer to priests and biblical texts.

Atheists are simply religious. Think about it. What's the difference between believing in what the scientific community says and what the Catholic church says? They both claim that they have done all these observations and that their deductions are logical, but really there is no person on the planet that could actually confirm even a significant portion of it.

Off the top of my head:

Hellsing (OVA) - saw that one coming, didn't you? - Black Lagoon, Full Metal Panic!, Elfen Lied and Claymore. I'm sure others can recommend better series than these, but if you want a good mix of story/character development, action and comedy, these are a good pick.


Just came across this: http://d24w6bsrhbeh9d.cloudfront.net/photo/2313698_460s.jpg
It quite frankly made me think of one Xanatos.​

That has totally happened to me! Although they were a little confused when I added "...both of them."
Which reminds me, I have to oil them again soon.

Atheists are simply religious. Think about it. What's the difference between believing in what the scientific community says and what the Catholic church says? They both claim that they have done all these observations and that their deductions are logical, but really there is no person on the planet that could actually confirm even a significant portion of it. In the end you have to decide to believe what others claim is true.
*facepalm*

Scientists have done all their observations from scratch, their deductions are logical and are supported by MOUNTAINS of evidence. Science is about exploring how the world works through thorough investigation, and has nothing to do with influencing one's world views or moral standards. It's not connected to religion in any way, the only reason it's used in a religious context is to disprove religious claims about the physical world (how it was created, how old everything is, why the tides go in & out, etc). And if scientists get something wrong they make amends and conduct new research to correct their mistakes, documenting their findings in peer-reviewed journals to ensure their findings are as accurate as possible. On the other hand religious groups rely on severely out-dated texts written by uneducated superstitious clans of barbarians and believe in it in spite of contrary evidence. Religion is divergent while science is convergent.

And, as Mario stated, there is such thing as atheistic religions, Buddhism being the most well-known one (Buddhists don't actually worship Buddah). Come to think of it so is Satanism, since Satanists don't actually pray to Satan or anything.

Just thought I'd clear that up.

Yeah theism means belief in atleast one god/deity.
And atheism means that you believe in no god/deity.

An atheist doesn't have to believe in the power of science either, they can believe in magic if they want to.
Generally to be a religion something needs Organised behaviour, some kind of hierarchy, their own historical texts, places of worship etc..
I consider myself to be somewhat of an atheist and I can tell you we have no organisation behind us, no clerical hierarchy, no unique story and no places of 'worship', atleast nothing that's exclusive to atheists.
Lightrey you mentioned how our belief in science represents dime kind of religion.
But aren't you Christian? And aren't you also an astronomy student, therefore a scientists.
By your reckoning you can't be both, you dont get Muslims worshipping in catholic churches, so surely there shouldn't be Christians in places of scientific worship.

Being an atheist simply means not believing in a deity. Sure it's a belief about religion, but you're not initiated into the life of atheism, your just decide by yourself that you don't believe in god.
It doesn't mean you have to start following somekind of atheist dogma.


EDIT: yeah xana buddhists don't worship Buddha, since he wasn't really a higher being, just a sort of teacher.
And satanist aren't really atheist since they acknowledge the existence of god and Satan.

Anyone else find it incredibly annoying when you're listening to a youtube video and one of the annoying sidebar ads starts playing louder than the actual video? Three times in a row?

Seriously Youtube: stop this nonsense! :mad:
