    Intel CISO Harkins: “Run toward risk”. I’m stuck in the past and “Run toward risc”? is what my brain saw…

      Whenever I read “DLC” I alwasy first think of the Cyrix Cx486DLC processor from the early 90s.

    5TB ? WOW, that’s a lot of data…

      • designerfx
      • 9 years ago

      nah, not really. It’s just slow creeping improvements – due to technological limitations among other things.

      I’d like to see hard drives head towards 10-15 years MTBF – not for people to actually keep it that long, but as better guarantees of how long this stuff will last.

      With a little bit of lossless compression, I could fit my whole pr0n collection onto one drive! Well, almost, anyway…

        dude. that’s insane. you must have big forearms.

        • plasticplate

        tru, i have mine on two seperate drives… gets frustating when u r looking for a specific file ๐Ÿ˜›

          • sweatshopking
          • 9 years ago

          gross. nice to finally see you dragged your fat lazy ass out of bed.

        • anotherengineer

        I didn’t realize there was that much pr0n in existance?!?!?!

        I guess you have/includes german shizza, midget and all the rest???

          • plasticplate
          • 9 years ago

          yeah….dpaus is a pretty sick bastard ๐Ÿ˜›

            All those clown videos you asked for? Just for that, forget it…

            wow, u got some with clowns in it? *bows in awe*

          All the donkey stuff is in HD – I think it’s outtakes from a National Geographic special that went horribly wrong…

    I’m loving the final opera 11. anyone else using it? I know me and meadows do….

      • plasticplate
      • 9 years ago

      Just updated it. hmmm, didn’t find any difference from the version i was using earlier (not that it was bad before, its a nice browser).

      • plasticplate
      • 9 years ago

      Ahhhh….this is not about opera. This is u smirking at us with ur first post. Damn it!!!!

        • sweatshopking
        • 9 years ago

        well. it is and it isn’t. I’ve been doing well on the 1st post end, and I do Love opera. seriously. I don’t know why anyone would use any other browser. they all seem so outdated to me. 11 brings extensions, tab stacking, performance improvements, and a few other things, like visual mouse gestures. You may have been runnign the beta if you don’t notice a difference.

          • anotherengineer
          • 9 years ago

          Well since you brag so much about it, maybe I will download it and try it out.

          Does it have adblock like FF??

          That may be the deal maker/breaker.

          Ads are fine, its the blinking/flashing ads that get the axe on my PC (so *&#$%^! annoying). If I wanted to be distracted or get a siezure while trying to read I would get a strobe light or something.

            • sweatshopking
            • 9 years ago

            it has a built in ad blocker that works by right clicking. you then click on ads you want blocked. as for ad-block, it also has the same ad-block extension as firefox. use it for a week, and let me know what you think….

      • aatu
      • 9 years ago

      Running it, though I don’t actually need any of the new features. It was fine already. I hope they’ve also made general improvements (speed, stability, compatibility, etc).
