@chipset pictures?
Both Mitnick books are brilliant, no idea about the Steve Jobs ones though. [editline]6th May 2012[/editline] Also, have some pictures of my ThinkPad T61 that I got for $150: [t]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/15832809/IMG_20120506_015216.jpg[/t] [t]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/15832809/IMG_20120506_015427.jpg[/t] Found this in the bag: [t]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/15832809/IMG_20120506_015419.jpg[/t]
I've currently got the official biography of Steve Jobs and [url=http://www.amazon.com/Steve-Jobs-His-Words-Their/dp/1932841660]I, Steve[/url]. Both are pretty good, the second one is just quotes though. I love his presentation style and I figure having that would help me if I go into business at some point. I'll also grab a couple books on Stallman/Linus, Bill Gates, etc. I want nerdy books and business books to replace all of the novels on my shelf that'll be next to my desk.
I have the biography of Steve Jobs my grandparents got me for Christmas. I refused to even have it my room and haven't started reading it. Okay, frankly I refused to have it in my room because my bookshelf is almost literally full of books, vidya games and random stuffs but the cover fucking terrifies me. I'm serious, looking at the book makes me feel uncomfortable. I don't think I could sleep with a picture of Steve Jobs in my room. [editline]6th May 2012[/editline] Also because for some reason the life of some random guy does not interest me at all. [editline]6th May 2012[/editline] Even if said random guy founded a company that makes lodsamoney by selling overpriced and damn pretty electronics. [editline]6th May 2012[/editline] And well okay Apple used to be better that and the way I see it there was actually a reason to buy a Mac when they were still using PowerPC because it wasn't just another x86 comp [editline]6th May 2012[/editline] This is why I should sleep at 3am [editline]6th May 2012[/editline] I'm making myself seem like an anti-corporation, anti-Apple, anti-hipster douchebag which I sort of am but not to too big a degree
good luck sleeping with steve's zombie face in your room
Mine is currently on my night stand because I can't fit in on my shelf with all of these books that I hated after reading them. :v:

I'm about 50% through the Steve Jobs book, a little after the part about the iTunes and iPod introduction. It's fascinating how he gets stuff done, though you can't disagree that he was a complete asshole to many people. If you have the book, I would suggest getting your ass off Facepunch to read it. The book can go a bit slow at times, though it's definitely worth reading.

"Oh, I'm Steve Jobs... let's just ignore my family and daughter for most of my life."
The only biography of Steve Jobs I ever read was "Steve Jobs and the NeXT Big Thing" - written all the way back in '93. It's not a complete biography - it *starts* with Jobs leaving Apple, then ends with the then-present of NeXT discontinuing its hardware division. It paints a vastly different picture than the "savior of computing" some now see him as. It basically chronicles his biggest failures, showing *him* as a failure. Because, at the time, he was - NeXT never made a profit, and none of its products were ever successful.

It's terrible because there's too many pvp tards, they make it impossible to get anything done.
I think I've tried that mod before I spawned at night and it looked like there was a greyscale + extreme contrast filter on everything
Anyone have any idea how I can get decent AO performance in HL2? I put it on quality which is enough for me to be ok with quality but I get like 30fps, and it's at like 95% usage on my second 580 but only like 15% on my first one. Why does SLI suck for the source engine.
Well damn it I broke my kindle Should I get another one or look for alternatives? I hated the way you had to organize collections, and how it only supported mobi (which is awful IMO) Nook looks sweet, Kobo looks OK too

So.. Apparently the random loud chirp / click on the DM001 drives are somewhat common, and is being investigated by Seagate. Maybe it's caused by the flooding in Thailand :(
That's quite interesting news. Would be awesome to get an email saying, "We are having a recall on the DM001 3TB models. We will fix the device and we'll upgrade them to our experimental 8TB drives." I'll take four 8TB drives. Speaking of which, it's amazing how dense drives have gotten over the past 10 years.
