just as an addendum to the trump hack thing over the weekend:

the DNI during the election stated emphatically that it never happened. it could not have happened under some other agency because the DNI is the head of the entire US intelligence community including the FBI and the CIA among others. he's constantly made aware of any major operation by any US intelligence service, and i think wiretapping a presidential candidate counts as a major operation. so yeah, if any US service had tapped trump he would've guaranteeed known about it. the only question is if he's lying or not, which is entirely possible because clapper has lied to congress before.

It's not coated in rat poison. It's coated in a deterrent that is ALSO used in rat poison and puppy/kitten deterrents.
Thank you for clarifying that. I was about ready to smack someone for failing to read the damned article.

My question is, does it transfer off the cartridge to your fingers? Put in cartridge, pick up sandwich, WorstSammichEver?
Denatonium benzoate is stable once applied. In the quantities used as a bitterant, it won't transfer to the hands. You have to actually lick the cartridge to come in contact with it.

So is licking dangerous or not? And sorry for mistating, it is used as a consumption deterrent in rat poison, not as rat poison.

who ever said it was dangerous? no, it's just meant to make it taste bad so that kids don't choke on it. but the fact that it's trollish in nature without being toxic? it's what's cool these days with the kids.

Barack Obama's master plan:
1) Wiretap the opposition
2) Gather damaging info
3) Say nothing
4) Let him win
5) Ride off into the sunset

Central problem is that it proves who "hacked the election" in truth, and it wasn't the Russians (who with an IQ > 10 might believe that story?) No Russians voted anywhere in America on Nov 8, 2016...Lol...;)It was *the Democrats* all along who hacked the election...!
Quite a show in Washington...pass the popcorn.

What it proves is that the deflector in chief is tweeting during his morning constitutional and that's it. Just because he is parroting what he saw mentioned on fox about being wiretapped and immediately following it up with a tweet about Schwarzenegger is nutso. Seeing proof in it is republican.

Take Nixon in the deepest days of his Watergate paranoia, subtract 50 IQ points, add Twitter, and you have Trump today.

If Trump was in fact wiretapped during the campaign, that means a serious criminal investigation is/was underway to discover if foreign entities had either hacked Trump, or were, in fact, colluding with the Trump campaign.

james clapper, DNI during this time, already flatly denied there were any secret wiretaps on trump. not something he could normally do if an investigation did exist. trump is just blindly deepthroating alt-right news balls deep again and gagging on it without the slightest bit of skepticism.

When is is ever a good idea to buy refurbished anything?

pretty much all the time. it's cheaper than new while being good as new (usually). and if it's not it usually comes with a shortened warrantee still.

dell sells a lot of really good refurb monitors on their website. i bought a 27" VA monitor from them about 10 years ago for about half of what it cost new. best monitor i ever bought. i would recommend going the refurb route from a reputable source for anyone.

this story is shitty but i'm sure google will make it right. there's no way that didn't have a warrantee.

Nice, girlfriend ordered this laptop and instead of 128GB SSD/12GB RAM they somehow shipped her a 512GB/32GB version. I made sure we selected the one direct from MSI, but it looks like we received an SKU from Computer Upgrade King that's supposed to cost $300 more. Sort of makes up for her old laptop being stolen.

My GF now has a laptop stronger than my desktop x_x

Awesome, you win. Rest easy knowing the law is on your side.
http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0181-unordered-merchandise
Q. Am I obligated to return or pay for merchandise I never ordered?
A. No. If you receive merchandise that you didnít order, you have a legal right to keep it as a free gift.

Q. Must I notify the seller if I keep unordered merchandise without paying for it?
A. You have no legal obligation to notify the seller.

My translation of the above: You are under no legal obligation to be a decent human being. You are free to be a selfish prick. Congratulations, the law is on your side!

considering how often big corps screw us little guys, if they get a little screwage in return (legally too boot!) i'm all for it. besides, it's not like the prof did anything wrong. i'd say it's a moral grey area at best.

Heh, Montuyoc was technically in the last beta but locked.. Explored most of it, you get the high powered sniper rifle there as well.

Curious to see if anything changed from the closed beta, but I doubt it...

i doubt these things are actually "beta" in the traditional sense.. seems more like marketing than anything else, as in "limited time demo"... but you cant say that because its too obviously lame

You have been away for a while, welcome to 2007

actually i think its 2017 now... good try tho, partial credit for that

whOOOOOOOOOsh

Anyone ever deal with Win 7 and upgrading hardware? Apparently it's some kind of drm nonsense. I need to change my motherboard and RAM, so I'm a bit concerned.

your windows key is good for one computer, but the good news is you can move the key around. you just have to revoke the key on the old install and reinstall it on your new computer. yes, too many hardware changes will be counted as a new computer. just google 'revoke windows key' and once that's done, bob's ur uncle (always wanted to use that XD).

it was probably time for a clean install anyway, MIRITE?

I've been wanting to build another AMD system since the 3000+, I'll take excuse.

I also want their graphics division to pick up the pace. Vega 11 will be *mid* ranged but with HBM2? WTF?

Also, anyone else see the story that Intel will be using AMG iGPUs in Intel CPUs? Rumour, but probably true, due to the legal action nvidia took against them finally ending (6 year settlement? 200m per year paid to NV from INtel? crazy)

where did you hear vega 11 would have hbm2? from what i've read only vega 10 would have hbm2, which will be the high end part.

Three words: Tom FUCKING Brady.

I was predicting the Patriots by 2 TDs. Fairly brutal collapse by the Falcons, they have no one but themselves to blame.

Three pass interference calls in a row will do that to a defense.
They collapsed on offense too. The most egregious of which was allowing a sack which never should have happened, followed by a holding call (which was definitely holding) putting them out of range of a win clinching FG.

yeap, pornhub worthy choke job. so many ways they could've closed it out, but once brady got the ball back with 3 and change, you knew it was gonna end in a TD. only question was whether they could convert the 2pt.

For travel, I prefer to take my trusty Dell Inspiron 11 3147, but compared to the HP Envy x360, it feels really sluggish when loading programs.

Which would be a better upgrade:

A) Swap HD to SSD

B) Upgrade RAM 4 to 8 gigs

i would say do both if you can at all do so. both really suck for fast loading. SSDs are a godsend for loading programs. if it runs fine after it loads then yeah, it was a slow hdd. if it's still sluggish after it loads? you're hitting your ram limit.

ctrl-alt-del to open your task manager and see your cpu and memory usage in real time. really, all that climate elitism and you didn't know about task manager?!?

Thoughts on this weekend's travel bans and protests? Will it continue or get thrown out by the higher courts?

it's pretty clearly unconstitutional - ignores due process, violates first amendment among other things. not that trump cares about it, his majesty will use executive orders like royal decrees and clog the courts up for years when most of them turn out to be gross violations. but as long as he gets to shout from the ultimate rooftop like the ultimate lunatic he's happy.

Unfortunately, it's probably covered under the border search exception.

the exception only covers searches. doesn't at all address the blatant violation of religious freedom, nor the blanket extra-judicious denial of entry for people who legally have a right to be here.

the irrationality of post 9/11 is slowly being clawed back one lawsuit at a time. we're not where i'd like us to be, but the police state isn't as bad as it was 10 years ago. our checks and balances are working -slowly- as intended so we shouldn't just throw up our hands and welcome our illuminati overlords just yet.

the patriot act was revised and will hopefully be revised again, or even allowed to sunset finally. trump's executive orders are harming a lot of people and will have much shorter life spans because of the press they're getting and because they're not secret. and this isn't just 'pause'. pause for 90 days can and will do a lot of harm esp since his order sweeps up people who have a right to be here including people with valid visas and even naturalized citizens. it's already been stayed by three judges and will likely be fastracked by the supreme court since it's such a hot button issue harming people by the second.

helf - i prefer edward R murrow's thoughts about mccarthyism which seem more apt than ever with trump in office:

"We proclaim ourselves, as indeed we are, the defenders of freedom, wherever it continues to exist in the world, but we cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home.

The actions of the junior Senator from Wisconsin have caused alarm and dismay amongst our allies abroad, and given considerable comfort to our enemies. And whose fault is that? Not really his. He didn't create this situation of fear; he merely exploited itóand rather successfully.

Cassius was right. "The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves." Good night, and good luck."

Congratulations to the Falcons for winning the battle of the raptors. I only saw parts of the game, but I did see the Seahawks essentially give Atlanta a safety. The defense punished mistakes and the offense capitalized on it.

As for my Texans, well not unexpected. A bit frustrating to watch your defense play so well only to watch an impotent offense undo all their hard work. Brady threw some stinkers for sure, but it's probably because he could feel Clowney and Merciless' breath on his neck. While I'm excited to think what adding a healthy Watt back to that mix will do next year, it won't do much with Brock and his receiving crew's complete lack of chemistry.

i thought it was amazing how deandre hopkins went from 1500yd receiver with... who? as qb? to merely mortal with a supposedly better one. they have a really talented offense at every position except qb. if aaron rodgers, or hell, even kirk cousins had that offense, they would torch the league.
