if talk like that starts circulating, we're going to have to devise a way to find the entropy in this sink...

<offTopicTrain>
I love it when programmers not only tell you what's wrong, but aren't afraid to give their applications a personality:


jshao@MCP ~ $ /usr/bin/oowriter
I'm confused because I can't find OpenOffice's user files.
Your ~/.sversionrc file tells they should be under /jshao/.openoffice/1.1.4,
but they are not. Please fix the situation manually.
You may want to edit ~/.sversionrc to indicate where is OO
installed, or remove it if you did remove your installation
directory manually (you bad one).

What in the hell's wrong with doing that? I would post mine but at current they're... erm... embarrising to say the least. For xmas (duuuuuude) I've got this lined up:

Processor: AMD Athlon 64 3000+
RAM: 1024 (512x2 :() DDR400 PC3200
Motherboard: GA K8NMF-9 - K8 939, nForce4-4X, FSB1600Mhz, PCIEx16, Dual DDR400, SATA Raid, 8CH, Micro ATX
HDD: Maxtor Diamondmax 9 120 GB 7200 RPM
DVD-RW: NEC DVD R/RW
Case: Centurion 530
[b]GPU: Radeon X800 256 MB

Complete with monitor (17"), mouse, keyboard & speakers, it'll actually be quite cheap. I'm buying it in 'bits' and building it myself (rock on :D). Should be easily upgradable I may double the memory around Feb next year when/if I have the cash.

Dude thats not gonna be cheap at all, over a thousand for sure.

64bit, 256mb gfx (which isnt necessary 128 will run just as good), and a 64bit motherboard is very expensive.

"Hi i am n00b to programming i know im only 12 but i want to make and uber cool mmorpg game can someone please code it for me and ill do the art kthx"

or



"How do i make a mmorpg in blitz3d? or maybe even visual basic!"

You could probably find cheaper ones, I just quickly got the motherboard that got me closest to the target price.

I said exactly the same thing. Well I thought it at least. I have a spreadsheet - in the awesome OpenOffice.org - at it totals... *reads spreadsheet*.... £510.08. Wait, you're mostly from the USA, right? I guess that's about $1,000 USD? I'm not too sure.

Wow didn't know the price of amd 64 bit went down so much, haven't been paying attention much to them recently because of my new laptop. But the setup will still be around 600-800.

Well in case we still have non-believers, I uploaded the said spreadsheet to my site:
