I appreciate that you've explained all of that to me. I've had so much going on in the last two months that I have not had but a few minutes here and there to keep current on things related to gaming and computing. I would like nothing more than to sit down for an hour or two and go over it bit by bit but I just don't have the time. But that doesn't mean I'm not interested.
You are quite welcome. I'd rather inform than get in to an internet slapfight over an "us vs them" mentality. I also understand not having the time to pursue all the areas that interest you. Hell, if knowing this stuff wasn't part of my job, I'd probably not know half as much as I do.
I realize tone is a very hard thing to project in online communication, however I assure you that I was not frothing at the mouth, nor was I stamping my feet like a mad little boy. I will apologize though, as I broke one of my cardinal rules when commenting here at Blues. I don't post unless I have the time to fully explain my reasons (and any replies afterward) and I don't post if I don't know what I'm talking about. My other rule is that I don't post when I'm angry, tired, drunk, or hyper. As a writer, I tend to suffer from 'writers block' on occasion, however for the last few months I've been having a really hard time transferring my thoughts to words. Even when I'm talking this has become a serious problem, the words I want to say are there in my head but I just can't get them out. I know what I want to say, just I don't know how. And it's been getting worse. I should have kept my 'mouth' shut in this instance instead of going full-bore fanboy and putting 'MSW' on blast. I stepped into an argument I wasn't equipped to handle and I was more annoyed at my own inability to get out what I meant than what MSW was saying and that shows in my responses.
I think for now, I'm just going to silently lurk and read until I have the ability to adequately and respectfully discuss something. Again, I appreciate you breaking down the details, I wish sites would do that more often for those of us that don't have hours to devote to comparing stats and benchmarks...
I absolutely understand. Normally I try to be calm and rational, with a snide of lighthearted snark here and there. There are some days, though, I can't articulate what I want to say even if what I wanted to say was "The sky is blue". For me, that usually starts on the 8th or 9th day of an insomnia streak and then it's like I'm a lunatic off his meds. I hope you get it worked out and get your "voice" back, so to speak.
Again, you are quite welcome. If at any time I can be of service like that, send me an email through the site and I'll get back to you as soon as I am able.
