    Sorry to necromance, but:


    When you have several valid legal keys for different versions of windows, but use free BETAs and non-activating pirated copies because you're tired of talking to microsoft; for the above reasons.

    And yes, I could get a pirate enterprise edition or hacked version, But I don't keep win on-disk long enough to justify the hack.

    You're hardcore, when your media rig, designed just for music and watching movies, is almost as powerful as your main monster. It NEEDS to be powerful, regalrdless of if its intended to run FC2 at enthusiast or just using MS Office. It just needs to be.

    You're hardcore if you watch an adult movie, where the first scene takes place in an office, and the FIRST thing you notice is not the two secretaries there, no, you say to yourself: Hey cool, they have a Cooler Master Centurion case there.

    Your hardcore when you have to power your Folding Farm off of 3 separate 15A circuits just to feed the 20 GPU's and keep from flipping breakers.
