May I ask where?  I read through the last page (although it's late and I just got back from work so I 'read' through it)  I thought I got a decent deal when I got a poopy sandisk 128gb for $69....  The EVO ssds are a ton faster than the one I have too.

Staples

 

Basically, it revolves around Staples online store having an alogrythim in where if you refresh the page enough, it gives you a discount up to 10% (I got 7% at first, then 8% then 10% discount). Then you go to checkout, and then you buy a coupon off another site for $2 which gives you $25 off on Staples and boom.

Interesting... Does this mean I should use Staples as a source of simple PC parts?

Probably not........

 

If you look into it a bit, you'll find out why

Thinking about starting *and finishing* an actual game!

 

Likely going to be on Windows Phones/PCs, and will operate similar to a traditional 2D zelda/megaman x game.  Might port to WebOS, but it seems like an even bigger waste of time lol

Anyone else looking forward to the Opteron A1100? 64 bit arm, 8 cores, ecc compatible... the list goes on. I think it'll make an excellent home server/nas cpu.

No one here is rich enough to have a home server. Well, except for one guy.

What's wrong with you guys? Everyone has an old desktop computer lying around. Stuff it with some high capacity disks and voila - you've got a nas.

1 - Go to your local Goodwill/Thrift

2 - Find the aging PC desktop section

3 - Grab a nice, heavy, thick steel tower

4 - Replace Internals

5 - Profit?

Replace with "Go to place of work (or someone's place of work) and salvage old PCs."

 

Works. :biggrin:

Waiting for my company to write off our old server so I can get the fancy super ATX case!  
Dell's $15,000 solution is replacing it next week
