I like TotalBiscuit's WTF is... series. I've found them pretty useful as honest first looks at games.
What A Pussy
Fucking Generation Y.
I Like TotalBiscuit
and I hope he continues doing what he does. I think when you're interacting with people online you will inevitably have to interact with fucktards. This is pretty much the public in general. I have to speak to hundreds upon hundreds of people a week in my job and I might speak to 45-60 people in a day and 99% of those people are pleasant people but it's the assholes that you always remember. Those people who make your day shitty stick in your mind, sometimes for days. I can remember "that time I served that jerk" years down the line, I can't remember the nice person I spoke to yesterday.
Calling him a pussy? That makes you a jerk.
Being Famous is (often) something we all think about, being recognized for the things we do by our peers, but there are plenty of downsides to the status. It sounds like he needs to take a break and create an extra layer between himself and fans, otherwise he will go insane with all the negativity thrown at him on a daily basis.
When I read things like this I am happy to be creating content on the edge of the internet for old games. I recently got some abusive twitter replies to something I said and I was shocked, the comments stayed with me for a couple of days. I can imagine the TB situation is a 1000 times worse and it is not right what is happening to him.
Never Heard Of Him
U R TEH FAMOUS TOOOOO :)
where's a good spot to get pc hardware troubleshooting questions answered?
I Think There Is A Hardware Thread
yeah, i've asked a few things there but usually don't get a response. i just assumed there weren't many tech dudes who were watching the thread.
is pretty good, iirc
Weighted companion cube, metl <3
Happy Valentine's Day!
Glad to see a companion cube in a long time.
Never Ever, Ever, Ever, Ever, Ever
buy from Dell. Their customer service is the most useless shower of shit I've ever had to deal with, and I've seen some shit. It's so fucking appalling I'm lost for words, I mean I've been vaguely aware of people saying it's bad but I've never had to face it before now, and my god... to be honest I'd be laughing about it right now if it wasn't for the fact that they've currently got my money. I mean I've spent the entire day going round in circles chasing them trying to explain the problem with my order in simple language a child could understand, and once I finally get a call back from someone who might be able to do something, it's 4:50 pm, I can't take the call and I politely ask them to ring back in ten mins, and of course they fuck off home because it's now 5pm and outside working hours, so I've got to wait til monday to try this shit all over again. You fucking cunts!
If you've got computer woes and perhaps need to upgrade, go check the Dell website, they've got some pretty good deals on at the moment:
So Yeah, Why Dell?
I know as much about PC hardware as your average Reddit poster knows about not being a paedophile; I also exclusively buy laptops, so for me, "buy a pc from a shop" is infinitely easier and more attractive than sourcing each part seperately and assembling it myself like some sort of autistic Meccano enthusiast.
My current laptop is a Dell XPS M1710 that I've had since 2006 and I've thrashed the crap out of it ever since then, on an almost daily basis, and it has always been the most reliable, trouble-free computer I've ever used. So, I went into this latest purchase with a load of goodwill towards Dell, only to be let down spectacularly by their sales process. I only hope when/if it arrives, the new laptop will be as good as my indestructible and awesome XPS.
Dell used to be good. Their customer service, product quality and everything was great back in the day.
Good luck with the new one.
Hm, just watched TB's recent controversial review and wtf, he sounds like a func regular talking about RMQ. Abrasive, badly founded shitting. No wonder he gets hate back if he acts like that. I watched other (positive) videos a long time ago and really liked his style. But this is just exaggerated verbal poop. http://tune.pk/video/2125732/-WTF-Is-Guise-of-the-Wolf-
Guise Of The Wolf
is horrific dog turd.
RMQ is decent engine with features I wished were in other engines.
Same. I lack the knowledge, desire and time to source and build a PC these days. Shit, I haven't had those things for YEARS. I just pay someone ... Dell, Apple or whoever ... and just pick the highest rated options I can afford.
Seemed to work. My machine is still going strong 5+ years later...
As a hobbyist/fun thing, I understand. Go for it. As a means to anything else, I don't see the value.

goddamnit, the one time I don't preview before posting....
Welcome to func.
