Have you been out drinking with Dave and Marco? I don't drink (allergies) so call me when you need a DD

I'll never need a dedicated driver because of drinking. I haven't had any booze in years.

I'm boring I guess.

I would think that no harm was done, or intended either.

I use to drink love beer but I had an intervention!! Well kinda after I had my brain surgeries I had to stop drinking any kind of alcohol. Everytime I try to drink any kind of alcoholic beverage even just one apparently my head does,nt like it and I will usually get the worst kind of headache you can imagine usually in just 10 minutes after I drink it!! And its so bad I just decided its not worth it, so I just quit.  Of course I dont want you guys to think I was a drunk just a casual beer drinker.  I guess you would call mine an involuntary intervention LOL.Tongue Tied

 The odds of successfully navigating multiple computer sweepstakes is approximately 3720 to 1!

Yeah Amd...sounds like me with my allergies. I used to love having beers down on the beach in Galveston. then it just god bad, to where if I even had half a beer my head would be splitting!  Maybe it is the Japanese in me :P Since they usually develop an intolerance to it later in life. Odd because I am still OK with Sake!

Maybe that is why I spent many years as a bartender, so I can have the fun of watching people get drunk without having to myself.  Plus having a clear mind, I did better in the bar brawls and with the babes Cool

Either way, many of you here on Hot Hardware I would gladly like to hang out with and have a SakeGeeked

I quit because of my diabetes and the fact that it makes me sick now. I'm not sure why either.

Another thing was the IA effect that I used to suffer from when I drank. It turned me into IA several times. (IA= Instant A**hole)

I too, never used to drink a lot, so it wasn't too hard to give it up entirely.

>>>>>>>><IF I WERE TO GET LUCKY AND WIN<>>>>>>>>


I would go for the most CPU I could afford first and foremost. This is the most important item to me because of money restrictions and I can only do it just once, so maximum Mhz. is the plan. The mainboard is premium and will do it all right out of the box.

Now, I already have a good case, the CoolerMaster Storm Sniper, and I have an SSD for the OS to reside on,.......and also a few 1TB-HDD's to use as data storage too. I'm good for optical Drives, but would really like a larger screen to use so I can go above 1680X1050 resolution. I could make do with my 8GB of RAM, (using three of them) but would want to buy more to get it up to 12GB as soon as possible. My CPU water cooler would move to this rig for sure.

The supplied Video Cards would be used as is in SLI because they are the BOMB!

There seems to be a lot of kids on YouTube who are talented.

Good Morning Everyone!

It's a beautiful day here. I'm gonna be working on my Tacoma 4X4 today, doing all the service shtuff you do before a road trip. (taking it on a trip to Pennsylvania this weekend)

I read a little about Intel IDF party going on in 'Frisco right now. They're showcasing some cool technology. Also, I heard rumors that AMD was staging their own little demonstration of Zacate just a few doors down from Intel's party too. We live in interesting times and it's only going to get more interesting as time goes on.

Yeah, but the only problem is that they keep giving you free stuff, so you get weighted down as the day goes on. It's terrible.
