Oh and, I dropped my panel when taking it off [IMG]http://i54.tinypic.com/2cmzj9.jpg[/IMG] WONDERFUL
Sounds like some broken computer fans....oh wait
I thought it was the case fan, but unplugging it didn't seem to stop the noise :ohdear: So it's probably the CPU fan, this thing's given me so many damn problems
Every single person in my entire school gets Macbooks and every single classroom has a SMARTboard. But they come with CS5!
If it bent that much just by dropping it, bending it back with some pliers isn't going to make much effort.
I did, but it still wouldn't go back in all the way Some of the slidey pinney things probably whacked the table on the way down
[QUOTE=nikomo;29814389]I just realized that the English language doesn't seperate batteries (rechargeable) and batteries (non-rechargeable) from each other. Finnish has akku (rechargeable) and paristo (non-rechargeable). I just thought of it, we had a teacher say that the battery (paristo) in her laptop was dead and she needed to recharge. I was like "I await for the explosion" and let her know how stupid she was and corrected her.[/QUOTE] I mean, technically the English language does separate between the two... You even proved it in your sentence. We call them Rechargeable batteries. Also, you make it seem like you were an ass telling her how stupid she was? She said battery in a laptop... So either you assumed that she had regular non-rechargeable batteries in her laptop (making you pretty dumb) or you are just an ass and nit picking because she didn't say "The rechargeable battery in my laptop needs to be recharged."

Shouldn't be that hard to figure out where any bents or creases are. Assuming I know what slidey pinney things are, there can't be very many of them on there for you to look at.

Then you missed the entire fucking point of the entire post after that. I didn't assume anything, she said so. I'm Finnish. She said patteri. Not akku. The difference between the two (if I remember correctly) in a situation involving recharging is an explosion.
[QUOTE=nikomo;29817613]I was pointing at the fact that you need another word to define the type of a battery in the English language.[/QUOTE] Is that necessarily a bad thing? Or does it make it more modular, and context dependent?
[QUOTE=Darkebrz;29816872]Every single person in my entire school gets Macbooks and every single classroom has a SMARTboard.

Gave that out yesterday. I did not win :saddowns:
Sure, English is the bastard child of so many different languages. That's nothing new.

The difference between the two (if I remember correctly) in a situation involving recharging is an explosion.[/QUOTE] Think about it this way: in many situations, you don't specifically need a single-use or a rechargeable. Either will work. Like, say, a flashlight. You could pop a regular battery in there, or you could slap a rechargeable up in that bitch. Doesn't matter. In English, you don't waste any effort specifying. "Battery". It works. If you need to specify that you've got rechargeable AAs in it, you can just add an adjective: "Rechargeable battery". And in cases where you could only feasibly have one type, you can just use "battery" and rely on context to figure it out. Finally, after checking Wiktionary, it looks like it's not just English that does it this way. Arabic, Armenian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Esperanto, French, German, Greek, Greenlandic, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Manx, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Gaelic, Serbo-Croatian, Slovene, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Thai, Turkish and Vietnamese all lack a distinction between non-rechargeable and rechargeable batteries. There's more languages that distinguish between "car battery" and "battery" than those that distinguish between "rechargeable battery" and "battery".
In Estonia, there is Battery and Rechargeable Battery. Patarei and Aku. Wiki has failed you with that, sorrry.
[QUOTE=tratzzz;29818167]In Estonia, there is Battery and Rechargeable Battery. Patarei and Aku. Wiki has failed you with that, sorrry.[/QUOTE] Fine then. So it's now 32 languages against, 3 for. Still winning.

When talking about a modern day laptop if someone says battery and you think "Must be a non-rechargeable in the laptop" you are dumb. If they said recharge their flashlight batteries then I could understand that you might want to warn them. However, most gadgets now a days use rechargeable batteries. Hand held video games, laptops, cell phones. If she said she was going to go charge her Cell Phone Patteri you wouldn't freak out? Actually, you might. However you shouldn't because it would be stupid to think that her cell phone takes 4 double A batteries.
OC: We had an assignment in IT to make a "multimedia product" (powerpoint) that had a quiz in it. A guy in my class wanted to make a quiz where it showed your total score at the end. Did he use VB? Nope. The resulting powerpoint had a total of [b]112[/b] slides just for the [b]4 multiple choice questions[/b].
In Sweden we just say Laddningsbart batteri (Rechargeable battery). No real need for a special word in my opinion [QUOTE=teletext;29818623]OC: We had an assignment in IT to make a "multimedia product" (powerpoint) that had a quiz in it.

Most of the population (thus most of people speaking the language, thus changing the language) use the word patteri as an interchangeable word in cases where the type doesn't matter anyways. At this point, you may or may not imagine me waving my middle finger at my monitor because this is a stupid conversation.

[QUOTE=Chezhead;29819255]We should make some words up to correct this.[/QUOTE] "Carrick" is a plausible word for "rechargeable battery" - it follows another common Latin->French->English derivation from the same root as "Charge" ("charge" comes from the Old French "charger", itself derived from the Medieval Latin "carrico"). "Galvile" could be used for a single-use battery, as a portmanteau of "galvanic pile", the original single-use battery.

No need. [quote=Idiot]"Everyone knows that BF3 will be better be cause it'z made by Dice and has the crytek engine and therefore plays better"[/quote] Read that on the fault line video for BF3 a while back. Game looks nice but i wonder if muting the sound while playing online might be necessary
