That is true, its called fluency. Now what you need to after the lesson is to try and recall the information and struggle with it so to can remember.

Hmm, just found out this morning that my laptop has stereo mix.. didn't realize that was still a thing on computers these days.

Then again, both of the laptops I previously owned had Conexant sound cards, so maybe it's Conexant that just doesn't do stereo mix.

I kind of feel a little pity for most people, being my memory retention is cake. Learning must be hell D:


So Apache is being a little bugger for me. It's timing out even though I've ensured it's running with a check in the terminal, I've doublechecked httpd.conf and nothing seems to be of issue. Most of the time it'll time out but sometimes it'll show a beige-coloured page with a pink-ish rectangle at the top, God knows what that means. I'd like to have this up and going sometime as it means vBulletin, ergo PokéSphere. My old server seems to have come in a gold-trimmed cedar gift basket, whereas this one has arrived in a beaten-up, over-duct taped package seemingly handled by Ace Ventura from HDS.

Maybe I should go ahead and have pokesphere.net start propagating it all up for its DNS while I sort out Apache, eh?

The only thing you could perhaps try to do is initiate a crontab to ensure your Apache process keeps running, but I'm not sure if that would be any good or not in your case.

Sorry if Im changing the topic or something but,

I've kind of grown an adeptness at graphic designing... and the funny thing is I use Sony Vegas Pro to make it. Is this strange to you guys? Does anyone else here do that? I discovered being able to do that while trying to make a thumbnail for a Youtube video I had made, and it looked surprisingly damn good. Simple, but good. I think? Anyways, I know normally people use Photoshop or Gimp, but I use a video editor. Kind of weird, but it works surprisingly well. I cannot do anything fancy, but I think there is asthetic appeal if you're trying to make a youtube thumbnail. Any thoughts on this?

Also, I may start frequenting this forum much more often ^.^

Since I know nothing about Apache or whatever was being talked about, I'll answer this.

It's a strange choice, but not completly un heard of, I know several youtubers who make their thumnails and such in the editor. You don't need a power tool like Photoshop for them.

Website of the Quarter has since passed us for a little over a week now. Endless and I decided that WotM was a little too often, so they're going to be done every quarter. You can read more up on that here: http://www.pokecommunity.com/announc...php?f=57&a=631

Also, just for reference, but if you have any questions relevant to the section, please direct them to me via PM or VM instead of posting in this thread. Thanks.

Oh? In the PokeCommunity Get Together, Around PC in 7 days, it says you must nominate a website of the month by July 10th

and vote for one by the 12th.

Wi-Fi can actually get pretty decent speeds as long as you're on at least 802.11n. (use 802.11ac for best results.)

On another topic, Windows Phone 7.8 seems to be eligible for extended support, and its mainstream support is going to end soon.

I'm probably going to dread the day that the Lumia 520 will no longer receive OS updates. I would at least hope that day is far off, even though it does seem like Nokia comes out with new Windows Phones literally every few months

I'd suppose that it'd probably take until "next major OS doesn't support device"... and even then, security updates are going to stay for much longer.

Sometimes I wish I could have it all.

I'm intrigued over the potential of copper telephone lines these days - crazy how much better they can get. It would be most likely to be useful in many situations as it's extremely likely the average premises have copper telephone installations just right there - you can certainly go with anything that's fast, then use telephone lines just right before the premises.

I envy anyone with good upload speed. It took me 13 hours to install Garry's Mod and by that time I'd already killed myself 5 times because of it.

That was my school's WiFi, being right under the access point I was connecting from.

I should also say that this is from the staff/faculty network as well, which I have access to, because well... I am technically am employee. The student/guest network is throttled only to 1Mb/s down and up.

But am pretty jelly.

Interesting bit about the copper lines, I mean I would much prefer Fiber, but that would probably would talk a while.

Sometimes Macs are known to be faster than Windows computers, and with my time on this MacBook, i've found this to be a decently fast computer for the most part. I hardly even remember my old Dell laptop because of it, sometimes that would go fast but others it would be slow as a snail.

Right now, only Mac system I have is an iBook. Bought it many, many years ago, but haven't touched it much since purchasing, though, so it still looks decently new. Only thing I don't like is its speed, but I suppose it could be upgraded by adding more RAM. Someday, I'd love to get my hands on one of those new MacBooks. They might be a little too expensive for me, but would surely be able to manage by saving.
