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?

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

    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.

        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.

            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!

          • Ottokie

            February 26, 2016 at 13:18

            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 😛

            February 26, 2016 at 13:20

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

            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

        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.
