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.
I upgrade with my brothers old hardware every few years. But i dont play new-release games.... Core 2 Quad runs great.
Nowadays i spend lots of time fixing macbook notebooks too. Damn, the DRM free OS they have makes reselling them a breeze. I just clone any hard-disk onto the new machine and it's good to go. The hardware is pretty reliable in my experience - apart from the things people bust of course.
Just realized sock is like a modern Jesus figure! And we are only just beginning to realize the impact of his ministry...
@negke, you need to stop drinking the crazy juice and get back to mapping. I want a negke map to play this year, infact I want a necros map as well! and if we are still dreaming a scampie, daz and czg map!
Everyone Just Wants Sock Maps...
I'd actually love to play your releases as one continuous thing, but I guess the way you set up skill select with the runes that it's not really possible?
Make a start map with four exits and a rune.
Or even better, make Sock make a start map! Roulf!
