  1. TBDM is melodeath though. I WENT THERE
  2. Everyone gets awful FPS in Source games. The problem with the OB engine is that games feel like molasses the moment you go under 90fps. When I'm playing CoD4 it runs really well all the way down to 60, mouse input is consistently smooth and it's a lot easier to make snapshots/flick to heads. In TF2, aiming feels garbage regardless of FPS for some reason. CSS doesn't have this awkward feeling to it. Valve should port it to the L4D2 engine. L4D2 runs beautifully for me and mouse input is a lot more consistent.
  3. Not really possible here in the UK. Most ISPs offer either a flat 40GB "home" plan OR you can get "unlimited", but the pitfalls of "unlimited" in the UK are as follows - hidden shaping, port throttling and ridiculous spikes in latency/network congestion at peak times of the day. Often it's much less hassle to get a capped but unthrottled/low contention plan than to go through with "unlimited".
  4. My daytime cap is 40 and I've used like.. 15GB of it. I host games/servers though I have unmetered upload, so it has a limited effect on my overall usage. If I host games/servers I don't notice much of a difference in the downstream. Basically cut out streaming and you'll see a massive drop in usage.

    Why do you feel like you HAVE to be wild, get drunk, be a "bad boy" and whatnot? So what, I'm 18 and I'm never going to drink ("oh you will eventually." NO, I won't.) You're 21, big whoop. You want to attract a girl? What do you think will attract one more? Being drunk out of your mind and throwing up on her, or drinking soda/water and having a conversation with her? You don't have to be "wild" to find someone. If anything, you'd probably end up hurting yourself. I think the best thing to say is to stop trying to be something you're so obviously not and make the most of what you have.
  6. Noticing more lag on tighter/badly-optimised maps (SAWMILL AND VIADUCT, I MEAN YOU) than usual, but my game stutters badly if it goes under 90fps for some reason...

  8. Heimdalls Wacht - Ut de graute olle Tied
  9. For FPS games, 2*refresh is generally considered ideal in terms of frame rate. It IS just an ideal though; I know people who play well with less.

    haters gonna hate.
  11. Well subs are a bit redundant for me now I've enough of a grasp on Japanese to watch most anime (though they're still helpful). What's annoying is mistranslations though, makes my brain ache.
  12. Heh, when I first watched anime I would have to pause an episode every so often while I got used to reading the subs. You get used to it after a bit but it still feels awkward (possibly due to the annoying styling that a lot of groups use).

    Depression is all about finding out what are and what aren't your problems. Once you've found your problems you can deal with them and then you'll be able to ignore all the s*** that isn't your problem.
  14. Why? I hate the feeling of not having any form of structure in life. What good is being broke and bored? I was broke but I was never bored. This is how I feel, I've had on and off jobs for 2 years yet it's a simple pleasure to just drift about and do as you please. I've been through various phases but it always comes back to a strange feeling of satisfaction in being unemployed. Broke, yes. Bored, f*** no.
  15. "Lol dude epic fail" "yeah i totally herp derped" ALL OF MY RAGE Please tell me that people don't actually do this.
  16. What about if you can get to sleep fine, but the problem is actually staying asleep? I must wake up twice or thrice a night. I barely sleep more than five hours as it is.

    Beautifully put. There's none of that amazing campus life, really. There's no need to put yourself in a situation you know you'll find uncomfortable just because it's what "normal" people do. These forums are full of people who'll tell you to force yourself but you seem pretty much like me in the sense that the new environment is already enough of a challenge, let alone the expectations of conforming to absolutely terrible things that are a waste of time and money. Think about the productive things you could do using the time other people waste on getting absolutely mashed and making idiots out of themselves. I'm a loner by choice so it might be different for you, though as Omar said, it's hardly a bad thing if you don't enjoy it. It's just that people are judgemental c**ts who are influenced by awful television such as Skins et. al. I once knew a pretty nice guy who turned into one of those judgemental c**ts after he went to university. We shared many decent conversations and then he decided he was going to suddenly have a social life and look down on anyone who doesn't. Probably calmed down now, but yeah. Uni changes people for the worse a lot of the time.

    That's true, would be pretty weird if I wasn't equally sickened by porn!
