    You need a bit of Macro love, and you should put something cool in the background (just an opinion)

    Like this maybe? (old pic for those who have seen it before)

    I believe duck is a name from WWII where the tape originated as some stories go, never the less it was a slang term then. Today what most people consider Duct tape isn't supposed to be used on ducts anyways, that is what the metal tapes are for;)

    i know that feeling. atm i've just thrown a few games on mine, no OS... its quite impressive how the occasional load times and stutter are just gone. its so smooth now.


    you'd think 2x500GB drives in raid 0 could handle modern games without lag, but noooooo
