I think you need to type 'a' then 'n' then 'y' all while holding ctrl+alt+shift.
The ctrl+alt+shift interprets all the keys you press as a word function.
Thus it makes the 'any' key possible.

I found out, the minimum for BF4 @ Max is about $1500-$1700.
And thats using an overclocked card.

so yeah...

I guarantee you that quote is bullshit. Unfortunately, I can't afford BF4 to test out on my PC, but I know that BF3 runs 60fps+ constantly on my £550 PC on max settings.

550 is around $880 USD

BF3 is almost 2 years old.

BF4 is current and is quite demanding
so i believe it

I think my Asus router died in yesterday's outage.
3rd router... or 4th? Whatever.
So we plugged back the 1st one we got that's a little slow but still works fine. DLink.

I'm thinking of waiting for a good price on a new DLink since it seems heavy duty.

I got a Lynksis and an Asus before they both died.


The lights are on, they even flash.
When I look at the network map it shows:

PC ---> Asus_router ---> (whatever the modem is) ---> (the earth logo = Internet)

That's on the main PC, the one that's got the modem.


I just assume it's dead cuz nothing works anymore.
I tried resetting the modem and router.
Unplugged everything, wait.
Nothing.
And when I try to go into the router settings via IE (192.168.1.1) it says it can't access the page.

I do have that. I have no idea why it burns like that.

But I know mine isn't and my external still burned after an outage.

We just have terrible luck I think.

You sure it's an actual surge protector and not one of those extension cords with like 9 plugs in it disguised as a surge protector? Check newegg or amazon for a good one?

My dad is stupid.
He plugged it directly in the wall cause some guy told him YOU MUST NEVER PLUG A ROUTER ON A PROTECTOR.
And now he doesn't want me to plug the one I bought on the bar...
I'm gonna do it when he's not home though.
It's just dumb, dumb, dumb.

Also, I've been at it for hours to make it work.
Phones would connect but the PCs wouldn't.
Finally learned that I should use the WPS button for the PCs. They can't connect with the passphrase alone...

Since xubuntu 13 is dead and I don't feel like upgrading to 14 cuz if all the bugs I hear about, I'm going to try and install Fedora and see if that's any good. The dude who cofounded linux uses it so it can't be that bad.

Just gotta make the live usb and hope I backed up my crap now :u

Decided to give gnome 3 a try since people seem to like it and I sort of miss having all that flashy stuff too, so I'm now making the Fedora 20 Gnome 3 live USB. May the old gods and the new have mercy, for I know nothing about how to use fedora or yum, and I don't test these things in virtual machines first cuz I live on the edge.

Starrk: oh no debian is too laggy so I'm going to install dworp, and if that fails, I'll install moxie, veebee or potato and if worst comes to worst, ill have to go mainstream with windows 7.

Gnome isnt an OS, it's a Desktop Environment which is like Windows Metro and Explorer.exe.

Fedora is red hats upstream and redhat and debian are the two most popular OS out their, and debian is what a lot of linux distros are based on such as ubuntu or elementary or linux mint.

dude, Linux isn't the most popular.  Linux as a whole has like a little over 1% market share which means each individual type has like 0.2% or something.  Windows has like 80% or something over all.  7 and XP are the most used.  Most regular non fancycomputer people will just use the OS on their pc or mac that they buy and not change it.  Saying more people use Linux than those is a ludicrous statement.  I'm not saying they are bad, but they certainly aren't mainstream or popular.  Miku is correct here; see the market share link she posted.

That is a complete and utter lie and you should feel bad.

Edit: Maybe you just didnt get my point

I didn't mean a specific Windows OS, I meant Windows in general

Windows 7: 50% share
Windows XP: 25% share
Windows 8/8.1: 12% share
Windows Vista: 3% share

50% + 25% + 12% + 3% = 90%

But Linux still definitely isn't one of the most popular OSes

Can it tell you not to click links to virus-happy websites?

*hover over a link*
Avast: NONONONO not that one.
*click it anyway*
Avast: Please kill yourself.

It used to be a male voice then it became a female one. so get an older version maybe.


I think it has a toolbar that will make a little warning saying that the website youre trying to visit has known malware or something, and sometimes will straight up not let you get to certain sites (happened to be once)
