So they announce in 8 days,................Whoever wins this, take a good look at the cable management within, this company pays so much attention to detail it's a little scary. It will be a totally professional build maximized for optimum airflow. Even the Mouse and Keyboard are decent.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

One of them fell to his death.

They have some pissed-off storms out there as I remember.

Anyway, if you're in then post, post like the wind!!!

(I know the incident is sad but the people are rescued and they all live happily ever after.)

What? I was referring to lifeskills since he got back after all of those days. And while one of them fell to his death, the others survived. While it's sad that the one died, I think we should all pay our respects and move on.

According to that article it sounds like only 1 person has died.

Also you can upload your pics here, or you can use photobucket and post up your thread in the general off-topic forum(this one).

Since when did this thread turn into a thread discussing the death of 3 hikers? I thought this was supposed to be about the PC?

Well you could work from home, that'll solve your problem of having to work 24/7 and allowing you to use that sweet computer 24/7.

Better yet, why not claim that your PC is obsolete, people love to hear "that" story.

I would doubt it.  There's a world full of people that could really use this thing, and it's going to make anyone who wins deliriously happy.

Incidentally, I heard acarzt's family has a genetic predisposition to  a cancer that can only be cured if he gets a PC capable of folding core_15 GPU units. (I live to entertain realneil <g>)

It was my Birthday last month and nobody noticed...
 
My computer is so outdated there are sparks coming off of the P4 fan which only has three blades!..
 
The old girlfriend smashed the playstation into the big screen...
 
Then she put her heel through my hand, as she was walking out the door while I was petting the dog....

After he died from head trauma, I couldn't get the blood out of the carpet....
 
So I lost the deposit after I got evicted for the ex and her new boyfriend making to much noise while I was at work, and telling the landlord to F-off while shooting holes through the walls blaming me...
 
Only to find out that I lost my job when I got home because her new BF was my boss...
 
SO after she wiped out my bank account, I go to the computer to check my resume..
 
Only to find that she poured Zima on the CPU, so it blows up when I turn it on....
 
Then I walk down the street and Evil wont even buy me a drink because I'm so pathetic....
Smashing my fingers in the Bar door.......
 
I keep walking, and see new puppy's..
 
One bites me and I have to go through rabies shots at the free clinic....
Made worse by Obamacare, giving me Hep-C...
 
And since I am only 15 and cant afford a new computer, the crappy blown up one is the only thing I am left with!
 
So whoever wins...

At least send me the box, so I can have a new home...
 
and Hope of what a real computer looks like.....;(
