The good, the bad and the ugly of the past week – 26 February 2016

3 min read


Yesterday, I had the most insane craving for a pizza all day. So I went and stuffed my face with one last night, and oh my, was it delicious! Now though, I have that craving again. Will I die if I eat pizza two nights in a row?

Defence of the Ancients? More like Defence of the cabbages! Have you seen my head? I look like a Merino Sheep on pole. NO SHANGE only SHAPPIES! :D

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    • Captain JJ the “saviour”

      The accuracy of this gif (not the looks – I’ve got your back), is perfect.

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        You’ve got my back? What do you want? O_o

        • Captain JJ the “saviour”

          You’re going to need allies one day Emperor. Don’t alienate them just because you’re unhealthily paranoid (meant with total respect). ;P

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Was “alienate” a pun?

          • Captain JJ the “saviour”

            And not even a lame one…
            Oh, wait, that’s the problem. Isn’t it?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            YOU’RE THE PROBLEM!

  • DragonSpirit009

    I need to make a plan of a new PC for my mother. Not really a gaming PC but more of a low level designing PC.

    • What budget are you looking at ?

      • DragonSpirit009

        I don’t know. All I know I need to upgrade my current PC. I think mostly the graphic’s card, hard drive and the operating system… I still have a 19-voetsek windows on the poor thing

        • In older PC’s, adding more RAM does a lot of good (if it’s DDR3), but upgrading the GPU and not the CPU will hold back the GPU when rendering.

          *I might be wrong, I mainly render youtube vids so my answer is based off of that knowledge 😛

          • DragonSpirit009

            To tell the truth I have no idea what going on with the PC cause I’m not home that much. I just need it to run Corel Draw and Photoshop smoothly and just need a new Window. The current one is causing problem cause my mum can’t oven certain emails and stuff!

          • Give it a format with Windows XP first and see what you need from there, check how much RAM Coral Draw and Photoshop are using in the resource manager. If it’s bottle necking the memory and CPU 😛

          • DragonSpirit009

            Yeah I might need to take it to someone… Me and formatting isn’t such a good thing!

          • Hahaha patience is key… and a lot of wine

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Heh. Corel Draw. Many many moons ago I did a recon for a multi-year project we had going on, took me days, project manager comes back from his meeting & asks me what program I used to do the recon, so I said “excel, why?”, “oh, because they asked how you did it & what you used – I didn’t know so I said Corel Draw & they were very impressed.” lol

  • Congrats Vamps… here have a scary vampiresquirrel pic 😛×900/filters:no_upscale():origin()/pre03/4976/th/pre/i/2006/303/0/6/attack_squirrel_by_insanerthanthou.jpg

  • Captain JJ the “saviour”

    Vampyre gets the win!

  • VampyreSquirrel

    Whoop! First ever comment of the week!

    • Spathi

      It was so bad, it was awesome!

      • VampyreSquirrel

        LOL! Thanks

    • Hammersteyn

      Well done bud!

    • Commander Admiral Chief

      I’m so proud of you!


  • Dane

    I can confirm, you will not die if you eat pizza for two weeks.

    • Dane

      Err, two days*

    • VampyreSquirrel

      Beyond that is still a mystery… hmmmm…

      EDIT: 2 DAYS!? THAT ALL!? I’ve done more than that 😛

      • Captain JJ the “saviour”

        I’ve only heard the tales of the brave who have survived only on Pizza and Beer for months.
        But I know not whether they are true.

    • Captain JJ the “saviour”

      I can also confirm this.

  • Hammersteyn

    Gif of Darryn arriving at the office….

  • Commander Admiral Chief

    GG VAMPS!!!!
