Even though I'm unlikely to need it at that time, and there's a truly 24h gas station near enough, it stil...

Re: 1769: "Never seen Star Wars"

I've just recently seen the 4th part, first I've seen ever. Wow the special effects are bad. But the story actually drew me in, I will probably watch the rest at some point. And everybody always assumes I know all those movies, even after I tell the I didn't multiple times.

Looks like somebody else also didn't get the memo - John McAfee's new party is called the cyber party. (Yes the antivirus guy. Apparently, now also a presidential candidate in the US)

Re: 1444: "Cloud"

Well, Shinseungback Kimyonghun fed images of clouds to facial recognition algorithms, and made an art installation of those that matched.

I highly recommend checking this, and his other projects, really awesome, and kinda xkcd-ish in a way.

I don't live near an ocean or a sea, but would we really see tides over a couple hour period?

Wow.
the instrument failed the radio emissions test. The leaflet marketing produced said "designed to meet radio emission standards".

Hardware Problem - Mainboard?

So, my computer decided to fuck up. It was after messing with the OS (Windows 8 FTW) - So I assumed unplugging hard drive and booting up some live cd would help. It didn't - Some splash screens and consoles loaded up, but never the full grafical OS - and I tried a few. Then I went to test my RAM wit...
