I got a mini Mac to get my IT skills up on their OS. It's Bootcamped with Win 8.1. I'll run the benchmark on it later and post it here. Thought it'd be fun to compare the OS'es.

Mac versions are usually an afterthought to try and rope in a few extra bucks from those people who insist on buying computers from a company that is well-known to scr*w you over on purpose to make every penny they can.

EDIT: This guy pretty much sums up why Apple (as a company) needs to die.

This guy repairs Apple computers for a living.

I've been subscribed to his channel for awhile now. His rantings are usually pretty amusing, though he does tend to repeat himself quite a bit.

On a separate note, I think I have a hardware buying problem. Right now I have an EVGA 1080SC2 video card. I'm seriously considering replacing it with the 1080ti FTW3 when it becomes available later this month. EVGA even has a special program for sick bastards like me. If you qualify to join, they will let you customize the color of the of the fan shroud. I like the blue one...

Well, some things do bear repeating, lol. But yeah I've watched a number of his videos and he makes some good points, though I'm not really a fan of the foul language.

Perhaps I should change my name to Netflix Smiley: glare

I'm also on the 25mbit plan.


Well so... I did and.... kind of?

It kind of worked. It still feels like the issue is there, but it no longer makes the game unplayable. So I'll probably have enough time to finish my anima weapon, though probably not enough time to finish getting DRK and MCH to 60. Oh well.

I do need a new FC though. Mine is the deadest. So there's that.

But I can play the game again without wanting to break things. Smiley: yippee
