AMD-AMMIT! Hundreds face axe at chip maker as PC, graphics crash

Lionel Baden

agreed with all the above

I would love to buy am ATI card, but dont down to shitty drivers and software.

Although mind you eyefinity almost got me to go down the AMD route, they seem to multimonitor better than Nvidia in fullscreen apps.

I buy AMD cpu's just due to the fact you get more bang for your buck so to speak, but would be tempted to go ATI next just to try and keep them afloat.

If ATI die who else have we got ?

"that something that is now fundamental, like the water, for everybody’s daily life has been entirely produced by men."

Really ... I mean really .......

Good way to ridicule feminism.

Re: One thing they haven't clarified...

if pedantry is to be used, would not "should had of" been a better choice ?

I am not a grammer nazi, nor am I trolling, it's an honest question.

750k ????

She needs a better lawyer.

for once i really believe there should be a stupidly high payout to ensure this never ever happens again.

I really feel disgusted that a law enforcement agency would go ahead and do something like that.

I fear the day it happens here in the UK, or it probably has and gag orders issued :(

Top 10 SSDs: Price, performance and capacity

Lionel Baden

Re: alas

@steven jones

Valuing storage solely by £/GB is like comparing food on the basis of how many calories you can buy. Yes, it's a factor, but far from the only one.

After going through some very difficult times myself, I can assure you sometimes you buy what you can afford and dream of having more, even when it comes to food.

alas

I have never been able to address the cost factor effectively. The pricing and size of these drives + the warranty pushes them into an area I will be able to afford.

Dont forget the early drives were prone to fail quite often and without warning.

So for an end user the cost of extra redundancy and new drives in case of failure pushed it out of our price bracket.

Re: The Cube was great little movie better than the sum of its parts

@John sanders

Also I'm sorry but the article doesn't read like a critique of the movie, and more like a commercial, it verbatim repeats the entirety of what can be seen in the trailer.

I'm actually grateful for the review, I assumed it was a bullshitty Teenage love story with some sci-fi tacked on. Think hunger games, Potentially a very awesome film but pandered to much to the love story and glossed over the rest.

I think its safe to say most reg readers will be scifi inclined in their tastes and to get confirmation its not a stinking pile of poo :) and its part of the weekend edition :D

Re: No comparison to The Cube?"

Just have to say Snow piercer is definately worth watching, It can seem somewhat tedious at time's but everytime you feel it getting monotonous or predictable, it goes off on a tangent.

Mighty good watch, was pleasantly surprised, my standards over the years have been worn down.

Bailing out of the Vodafone ship going to Three.

but if Vodafone offer me an unlimited data package, I could be convinced to stay.

Its not that I use excessive data, 1 gig per month atm, unlimited probably 4-5,

Vodafone don't offer enough data and their pricing for going over the limit is ridiculous.

Re: testing procedure.

in my defense to some of the comments .......

My power button just put it in standby, Alt F4 is generally not the considered way of shutting it down.

I could of even just held the power button for 7 seconds.

Shutdown commands work yes.

I think a few of you have missed the point i was making.

one of the simplest of tasks became obscured and complicated.

testing procedure.

Give it to a large sample of people without the ability to google problems.

I felt much shame as a techie when i had to google how to turn off my god damn (win8) computer :(

Microsoft answer of just closing my screen or press the power button for sleep mode wasn't really what i was looking for.

And when they call in for the invetible question of Huh how do i do that, i used to do that, give it a rating.

I feel very split on this.

The criminal has stolen something from said country and should be punished. just because they didn't step into said country should not make them immune to whatever crime they committed, just because the location of said server was overseas.

If i shoot somebody on the other side of the border I would still get done wouldn't I.

But then again I really dont want america feeling like it can go wherever the fuck it likes holding people to their sometimes ridiculous laws and legal procedures.

Re: Excuse me, but...

technically its not a burner phone at all, What they handed out were secured devices.

Burner phones though are purchased with no backtrace to the owner (cash) and are used generally for an illicit act, and then dumped immediatley after.

Re: WHY WHY WHY WHY !!!!!!

best of luck with your fibre war, I couldn'y imagine going back from FTTC it would be horrific

I have FTTC and yes I am more than happy with my service and dont really feel the need to upgrade, in all honesty it would mainly be for bragging rights rather than actually using it to its full extent. but i really cannot understand the mentality of shooting oneself in the foot with half assed installs ............

WHY WHY WHY WHY !!!!!!

because in another 4 years

BT: Hey guys want super fast broadband ??

Oh you still have copper on your line .... Sorry no can do and since we blew all our budget putting fibre only half way down the street were not going to put any more in.

Have they never heard of future proofing ?

case in point, i live in a newbuild 1 year old. why not just install FTTP ? it is a low cost option relatively speaking to putting down copper then pulling it all up again and putting in fibre at a later date.

Lionel Baden

you are absolutley correct but, he did state that other comments went through fine though, as far as i understood certain words will also autoflag your comment for moderation so using a swear word could cause pause for moderation even if your not on the list.

I would like to know whether i was being moderated as well. I try to polite, but I have had the odd angry post.

**hijack (usage will probably cause moderation pause my apologies)

I would also like to receive a response from thereg on my other posts in the forums, but I just got ignored :/

feel like no point in posting here.
