    I hate laptop keyboards with numpads. They put your typing-centre (FGHJ) off to the left of the screen and you're all twisted up.

    Fixed your typo for you, lol.

    Also, I'm on an emoticon diet. Not using them until I can express myself without them.

    Is PC being hopelessly unstable for you too?

    I'm not just thinking about the gaming side. Otherwise I'd just stick with the Lycosa.The MX Browns are mechanical switches for typing. Reds and Blacks are the "gaming" switches.

    The main thing for gaming is quick and defined actuation. For typing, you want actuation feedback and smooth and consistent keypresses. A mechanical board with Browns fulfils all of these criteria.

    Still, gaming is 80% of what my desktop gets used for. Most of the typing work gets done on my Macbook. Hell, I only installed MS Office on my desktop a few months ago. So it makes sense for me to focus on the gaming side entirely. But even so, a nice keyboard is still a nice keyboard - it's all in the keys. I still retain that Logitech keys feel like crap. I don't mind good scizor scissor keys (like some laptops), but they're hit and miss. The only current laptops that feel any good to type on for me are the Apple, Acer and Alienware keyboards. Toshiba and HP in particular are putting out rubbish and you're stuck with your keyboard for a laptop.

    1. I can't stand 7" tablets. I'm stoked with my iPad 3 and nothing on the market matches its screen yet. Sounds like you're happy with the Galaxy Tab, which is good.

    2. That graph isn't surprising at all. BootCamp is native Windows with a different bootloader, so it's going to be much better than virtualised GPUs. Virtualbox, apart from being free, is partially focused on running Linux VMs, so it makes sense that they don't put so much time into OpenGL support. That said, I hate the way Parallels and Fusion want to integrate into everything. VB is a standalone program that launches when you click it and has its own filesystem - none of this shared desktop rubbish. If people need seamless access to Windows programs, it's pretty simple - run Windows natively.

    3. Keyboards. USB, wired. I currently use a Razer Lycosa, which is awesome for gaming, not so much for typing. My next keyboard will probably be a Mechancial Keyboard with Cherry MX Brown switches - probably a Filco. I hate Logitech keyboards. Microsoft keyboards are better, but still very low-end. Tenkeyless or Spacesaving keyboards are also preferred. These omit the Numpad so there is more space for mousing.

    Sorry for my lack of replies, I've been busy with stuff and putting off replying until I can sit down and do it properly.

    Honestly I don't care about K-Pop, but this is funny. Everyone at my school is talking about it. It's like he's using dance moves that would normally be stupid but are somehow cool with him.

    I think he was even on the Daily Show lol.

    I bet IB screwed up vB even more this time. Plus license options are limited/harder to find in their clunky layout. AND THEY COST MORE.

    Mine just fits. EDIT: By that I mean it fits now. hehehehe

    My Catleap is a nice medium between gloss and matte. And Pentile displays aren't the only ones, any high-pixel-density screen like that will look like rubbish with a matte protector.

    27" 1440p ones are. The only two others available at the time were the $800 Dell or the $1200 Thunderbolt Display. Mine was $350 and didn't have the bad antiglare coating of the Dell or the Super-glossy finish of the Apple. It was a no-brainer.

    1080p monitors are a different story. Cheap and easy to find.

The blog's going to be left as is, as an archive, but no more.

WordPress Web address: http://www.wordpress.com

Blogger Web address: http://www.blogger.com

TypePad Web address: http://www.typepad.com

Well, which one would work well for me? I think I'll also do my own research while you guys pour in the comments.

Just what's going on with Pokémon Groups these days?!

I know something strange is going on these days. People are quite the fickle one - sign up, then bolt away. I've seen a lot of deleted posts in threads... including my clubs. Whatever is happening there, it is going to harm everyone involved in the health of Pokémon Groups. It's one thing to not like a group. It's another thing to pretend that you're in a group for show. Nobody wants to be the person that just sits there, huh?...

...and when I tried to reinstall Windows, I noticed that I don't have any blank DVDs or USB sticks around, seeing as I'm living in my uncle's home for the week.

This was the time when I started to learn OS X deeply.

I've begun to actually love it.

Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

One thing I learned today is that even though the screens might be pre-calibrated, it's a good idea to recalibrate the monitor anyway.

Why?

Well... at least gamma isn't wonky and it's no longer baked warm. I think I'm now enjoying my display, even in OS X.
