  1. I can't speak to construction quality, but those are all very nice components for the price - nice processor, 6gb ram, 555m with 3gb vram. The only thing that sticks out to me as not good is the less-than-1080p display. Looks like you can get a 1080p display for 90 extra, though, which I would totally recommend. Overall a good choice for what you said you want to do, just realize that it is gonna generate heat and it is not going to be lightweight.
  2. Has anybody else noticed that colors in the game look ridiculous now? Like players on the minimap are pink... looks like it's supposed to target pixel bots but wtf it's ugly as all hell
  3. Say you have the list of xp values for each level in a vertical list that starts in cell x10 and goes to x109. Use this formula to return the level number based on input xp from cell a1: =MATCH(A1, X10:Y109, 1) This just returns the relative index of the cell in the matrix (2nd argument) that is the smallest not larger than (that's the logic that the 3rd argument, 1, tells the function to use) the initial comparing value (1st argument). If you want I can upload a sheet I have that tracks my personal goals and uses this extensively. E: typo Also here's some relevant excel help for this function: MATCH(lookup_value, lookup_array, [match_type]) Match_type Behavior 1 or omitted MATCH finds the largest value that is less than or equal to lookup_value. The values in the lookup_array argument must be placed in ascending order, for example: ...-2, -1, 0, 1, 2, ..., A-Z, FALSE, TRUE. 0 MATCH finds the first value that is exactly equal to lookup_value. The values in the lookup_array argument can be in any order. -1 MATCH finds the smallest value that is greater than or equal to lookup_value. The values in the lookup_array argument must be placed in descending order, for example: TRUE, FALSE, Z-A, ...2, 1, 0, -1, -2, ..., and so on.
  4. Like the title says, I'm looking for a recommendation for a good wifi USB adapter. This is for a desktop, no PCIe ports but I do have PCI. USB is by far preferred though. Size does not matter. I want decent range; I tried a crappy stick one that my friend got for $10 and it doesn't pick up my router signal from the other side of the house, so I guess I need one with an external antenna? I have no idea where to start looking. Also my home network has a hidden SSID and WPA2 so the adapter must support that. Budget is hopefully less than $30.
  5. As has been said you only need to find the amount of ticks in between resource-receiving chances. For example it is well known that when fishing you have a chance to catch a fish every 5 ticks. I'm sure it's similar for woodcutting. Mining would be much more difficult to determine because you only get one resource before it's depleted and has to respawn.
  6. After your replies I looked up SATA backwards compatibility and it seems that 3gb/s are compatible with 1.5gb/s boards. But I can't find anything that says 6gb/s drives are backwards compatible 2 generations. I guess I should just get a 3gb/s drive?
  7. I recently obtained a 20", revision A iMac G5 for free. It boots, but sits with a blinking folder icon with a question mark on it. From my research this means that the HDD is probably bad (sort of confirmed by the fact that I can't install Ubuntu on it). I have also opened it up and noticed some bulging and leaking capacitors which is apparently a really common problem, I know how to get replacements and do that repair. I am having trouble finding a suitable replacement hard drive. From what I can tell, the logic board in this iMac only supports SATA 1.5gb/s transfer protocol, but I can't find any new mainstream drives on Amazon or Newegg that support this, they all have 3.0 or 6.0 gb/s transfer now. Does anyone know where I could get such a drive? I am looking for anywhere from 120 gb to 500 gb and want to stay on a decent budget, taking into account that I got this for free so I don't really want to put money into it as I am unsure how many more problems it has. I also need to find an apple keyboard that has option and command keys, etc. that I can use to boot with alternate devices.
  8. No not multilogging. I just have a bunch of lvl 3 accounts that are sitting by the rocks. I log in with one, wait for a bit to make sure there aren't any pkers, then log out and back in with my main to mine.
  9. One word: Scouts. I am debating as to whether I should even post this because I don't want rune prices to fall lol.
  10. I wish I had seen this thread earlier... It's probably unnecessary for you to format/reinstall OS/etc. Almost all those viruses that stop processes from running will allow the process called "iexplore[Caution: Executable File]" to run. So all you need to do is download malwarebytes on a different computer, rename it to iexplore[Caution: Executable File], copy it to the infected computer somehow (not with a USB drive you would use for anything else) and run that. I'm using a school laptop that didn't have any antivirus and I had to go through that 3 times before I decided to screw it and install avast.
  11. How do your propose implementing a turing test into randoms that won't be a ridiculous nuisance to real players?
  12. Entertaining vid. But also sad. What's the song? It sounds epic and very brassy... I would like to find it.
  13. When I was going for 85 mining by banking iron in the dwarven mines/resource dungeon I got soo sick of being crashed by bots that I ended up making some accounts and looking on botting sites to figure out a way to get ahead. Long story short I learned that most of the mining bots are trained to look for color, but also expect a spawn order to speed themselves up. So there are three rocks, A B C. They aim for A then B then C. So I could just mine C then B then A, messing up their predicted spawning order and giving myself a much easier time competing. But while I was looking this stuff up, I was amazed at the sophistication of the color bots. There is like this whole developers kit of scripting functions for scripters to use to basically make writing bots really easy, and some of the stuff they are capable of is crazy: they use icons and colors on the minimap, colors on the game screen, the text in the upper-lefthand corner when you hover over stuff... I don't like botters stealing my resources and deflating resource values but I have to admit the whole system they set up is pretty impressive. IDs do change apparently and break the bots that basically look at the client, but the color bots don't break unless they change fonts or item pictures. I dunno how it can ever be stopped. It amazes me the quality of programmers that spend their time on botting... what if they were devoting their talents to productive uses? I guess my point is that unless Java is able to monitor other processes on your computer then they will have a hard time breaking the color bots.
