Here we just use the university's website. I don't see why using .edu makes it look any more distinguished or credible.

University Website?

 

It's more credible in seeing that you are a University student maybe.

How come?
I have a @uu.nl email address. Everyone at least here in the Netherlands should know that means Utrecht University.
Why would something like @uu.edu be more credible? Sure it has a fancy '.edu', but it distinguishes education as something special, which is something to which I object. Then again I don't really care either. I'll just find it stupid, but not for any particularly good reason.

Yes, but single strand wire is less pliable and still likely to fall off like that after a while.

For some reason, it reminds me of:

 

 

Ah my childhood. XD

Lmao, I read the title as breast wars in my probably still somewhat asleep state... >_<

 

oh gosh, looks like I have to watch WA2 when I get home. I stayed up last night catching up on monogatari SS, which as usual was freaking glorious!

Basically, having a .edu address in the states is the easiest way for companies to verify that you are a student so that they can give you discounts on stuff.

Oh I see what you mean now by that.

 

It's for the reason that Eve wants the edu address. It's easier for companies to see the edu than to record every single educational address I guess

I know, you people don't like Metal, but I will post this video here anyway.
It is by my second favorite Band ever, Alcest.
You might be a bit surprised ;)

(Spoiler: No screaming dudes involved)

I know I haven't seen much, but I have never really seen a school that doesn't use an .edu address (or with regional variation, like @uu.edu.nl)

Though to be honest, most companies don't check if you're a student or not. They don't care. If the small discount is enough incentive to get you to buy a more expensive product, they'll still benefit. 

 

It was a bit surprising when I ordered a Macbook from Apple yesturday. I went into their education store and they didn't ask for any identification, email whatsoever. I clicked in, bought, and they shipped it out. :)

 

I'll be returning that one too though, since it is still cheaper with Best Buy's sale.

Does anyone have any personal experience with fixing dead pixel rows on LCD computer monitors? I tried some stuff I read online like massaging it and that hasnt helped.



Sorry for bad pic, phone picture + lightbulb in my room is dead
