Are their any disadvantages to putting your PSU upside down in your case. I did it because I'm parnoid that I'll spill drink and it would be sucked up by the fan.

Unless you mean that you may spill some into a now spillable area of your PC. There's plenty of areas of your PC you can accidentally spill things into.

Top mounted and there's no difference at all

I don't know of any cases that allow options for mounting your PSU at the top and bottom.

Neat.
More IT tales... I was just about to leave, and my supervisor said "hey, think you could do some cable organizing tomorrow?". Not thinking anything of this, I said "Sure!". He tosses me his keys and points me to the closet down the hall. [t]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/13038989/ZScreen/0229121419.jpg[/t] Huh.

I gave Flux a try for a week and I think I hate it. I swear it's making my eyestrain worse. And it only gets in the way. There's no "Disable until I say enable" option, there's only "Disable for an hour." (Discounting turning the program off.)

I'll give windows 8 another try tomorrow morning. I love dat fast boot.
I fucking hate clients. So I get to work today, and guess what my assignment is? The client has decided that he doesn't want users to be called "users". He wants them to be called "people". Not just at the interface level (which isn't even our job, thankfully), but in the code and database as well. The primary database (there's three) has over two dozen tables with "user" in the name. And well over half of the sixty-eight tables in the entire system have a user_id column. The worst part was that I couldn't do a simple global search/replace, because a) a few times user was actually correct ("CREATE USER isignedanndaandcanttellyouanactualusername ENCRYPTED PASSWORD nope"), and b) the framework we're using would have far too many false positives due to stuff like user agent mechanisms and comments pointing you to the user manual. The best part was that I could turn to the guy next to me and ask how to make this ignore stuff in .svn folders: [code]find . | xargs grep -il 'user' | sort | uniq[/code] And in under a second, he can say [code]find . | grep -v '\.svn' | xargs grep -il 'user' | sort | uniq[/code] (I checked the man pages - there doesn't seem to be an easy option in find for 'ignore hidden files and folders', which was my first guess on how to do it)

So at work, I was working (gasp) And, being a software company, I was working on our program, specifically, automating the regression testing. So we have this scheduling function that apparently logs every time it fires off, and I use the scheduler to help automate stuff, and the root directory of the program was taking forever to load. I opened up cmd, did a dir of the folder, 66,200 files. After a delete, it was left with 137. :v:

[QUOTE=Shadaez;34935023]so stop spending so much on hardware and move out, that sounds like it's awful[/QUOTE] It's not awful. Literally this is the first time my mother has said something like this. Everything has been peachy. I really just hope I can get YT to a good point before my job ends.
When people say "peachy" I always think it's a negative thing because of how my dad would use that word. "how was your day? "fucking peachy" ":("
Meaning the only conflict was my grades up till this point.
Grades are retarded. My school said I failed math and some other class when I have proof I passed and they're too lazy to fix it. As of today though I brought my GPA up to a 3.4, but I'm only half way though the semester. According to my school's records I have a 1.42 last semester despite me having proof I have a solid 3.0 UGHGGGGGYUHGFDfghddf
Also my prof for that office class accepted the grade. She's so nice.
