Re: 1762: "Moving Boxes"

We folded up and kept all our moving boxes in the garage. Now I think they are infested by a civilization of silverfish.

Re: 1735: "Fashion Police and Grammar Police"

Drat, I was hoping you were just being silly. So far as it goes, a replacement word isn't really needed. When one uses "literally", it's generally pretty clear from context whether it's meant ... well ... literally or not. For example, I'm pretty sure you don't actually think that anyone ...

Re: 1735: "Fashion Police and Grammar Police"

I would add, peeving about the use of "literally" is extremely fashionable. It's probably the single most complained-about thing in current English usage. Still waiting for an approved replacement word. http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/literally From the link: "not figuratively" ...

Re: 1735: "Fashion Police and Grammar Police"

OK, so grammar nazis are literally Nazis :roll: By the way, I'm an immigrant to the US. I learned to properly speak American English. I agree that English has stupid arbitrary rules, but I learned them and use them to be understood. I didn't introduce some new immigrant dialect. My pet peeve is that...

Re: What-If 0108: "Expensive Shoebox"

Haha, checks. I find it amusing how most Americans have no clue how backwards their banking system is that so many people have to use checks. Here you can't even *get* checks. I mean, what a stupid concept, a non-verifiable piece of paper that the user can write for an arbitrary sum? Can you say &q...

He meant .net, it's just that the cartoon's all in capitals.

Good luck


The PSU is cheap, but the sound seems to be coming from the area near the hard drives.

Re: Buzzing sound. Please help.

gah! that's what i get for posting a crappy vid I'll post a better before and after vid tomorrow. So you can see where I'm sticking the camera and the difference in the sound. It seems to be coming from the hard drive or the mobo around that area (gfx card and RAM are pretty close by too). I really ...

Re: Buzzing sound. Please help.

I hate to ask for more description, but can you compare it to anything? How loud is it? Is it a buzz or more of a note? Any chance you could take the side of the case off and pin point it? Does the noise correspond to any other activity? No CD's spinning up or loose fans? I'm guessing you would hav...
