    That was absolutely fantastic! The full version of Windows 7 he got is drastically different from the RC version I've been using which I thought in general was amazingly good.

    I hope I like the final version more than he did. :D

    Yeah I showed my girlfriend and she was like, "It's funnier for you!"

    Sometimes I wish I had a geek for a girl. But then she probably wouldn't be as good in other areas ;)

    I absolutely LOVED this article. Loved every minute of it.


    Dude! No you don't! Trust me on this.

    I always get:

    excerpt from early 2005- "Why do you want a new motherboard for ddr2? Your board with ddr1 works just fine!!!"

    excerpt from late 2005- "Wait about 1 more month and 8600GT's will come down in price."

    excerpt from 2009- "WTF do you mean your pump fried!?!" - after a hardlock then a BSOD from not giving enough voltage "Oh honey what you do now?" "4Ghz babe" "Why are you always trying to run @ 4Ghz 24/7, you do know 3.7Ghz is a little better on temps"


    Yes my wife is an overclocker but dont got the guts too push stuff like I do.

    You're right. If she knew stuff as well as I did, she'd keep me from spending as much as I do :roll:
