Agreed. Me and a friend of mine both have it, and between us, we probably know more than the school's IT department combined.
And yes, I do agree that Simon got it wrong in his comments about AS. I am the person who does tech support for EVERYONE I know - thus, admin. When I look at a computer, I can usually hazard a guess as to what is wrong. If I don't know, I tend to Google it.
Disclaimer: I have been professionally diagnosed with AS, and would advise against self-diagnosis for any condition, mental or physical. Psychologists, doctors, et al. are trained to recognise the actual symptoms of these conditions, and most people, if their extent of their knowledge of a condition is limited to the Wikipedia page on it, are not truly able to tell what the difference is between personality and mental conditions, for example.
“So what do I have instead?”
“I dunno – what’s the one that causes Asperger's?” the PFY asks unkindly.
Hey! I resent that remark!
And also, they aren't mutually exclusive - I've got both.
"It's not that we don't trust you..."
"It's just that we don't trust you."
Mine's the one with the huge slab of concrete in the back pocket...
Primus: no. 2?
I feel the other one being pulled here...
Disclaimer: I'm on TPG ADSL2+, was previously on BigPuddle cable.
So glad I moved. I mean, metering uploads? There go the torrents...
(Linux images, etc - nothing sick bird about it!)
I do know a company which runs its internet on Primus - didn't hear anything about it, though...
Mine's the one with the cr*ppy internet, no matter what your isp...
It's hard enough to read, let alone make sense of.
Coat to catch the vomit from my head spinning...
It's a miracle!
Finally, a comment from amanFromMars that actually makes kinda sense!
And great BOFH too!
The new version has no StarForce.
@AC - Wii Shop Browser
No dice... one of the first firmware updates rendered that hack useless.
I don't really mind either way... being in Australia, I < sarcasm > couldn't get it even if I wanted to < /sarcasm>. And if I did, I don't know if anyone here has heard of it, but there's this new thing called BitTorrent...
Of course, we who keep an ear to the ground about TV online know that region protection is doomed to fail... see the ITV F1 stream, apparently someone's hacked the player to allow anyone to watch it, not just those in England.
Sounds good to me, given when it gets put on TV here...
Back on topic... um, yes, Wii Shop Browser hack doesn't work.
Mine's the one with the Wii Points card still firmly in the pocket (I got one at launch)...
@Ozzie Ozzie Ozzie *BANG BANG BANG*
Lazy? He went to the trouble of building a ROBOT to kill him, instead of just pulling the trigger himself...
Seriously, though, it really isn't that funny for those close to him.
Other icons I could have used: IT?; Joke Alert!; Skull and Crossbones; Coat.
But I picked Billy G because I reckon that part of it is due to insanity from using Windows...
Isn't that an oxymoron?
Mine's the one with the 200 quid in the pocket for my copy... (not, I couldn't afford a tenth of it if I tried, being a humble student!)
SCO - Sue the Crap out of every One.
Sorry, had to get that out of the way.
Now, can someone explain it to me? I've only ever been "fortunate" enough to work with Windows, and a little of Mac and Linux.
For those who don't get the "ook" references...
I refer you to this.
Mine's the one with the large clove of garlic and the wooden stake in the pocket...
