It is a bit, isn't it.  A bunch of cubes set at weird angles towards each other, which you can't really see in those pictures.

Oh, you can. You can.

There is just so much cube-osity, Nigel! :lulz:  And it's one of the nicer looking campuses in Tucson.  Make of that what you will.

Here's a few pictures of the campus I'm going to: 






Since it's up in Oro Valley, they've made sure to put pretty plants and rocks next to the road and all around the place, all perfectly just so and "wild" looking.

WINDOWS 8/8.1 IS SHIT.  You can't find and delete programs you don't want anymore except ones that it decides is okay for you to get rid of, the control panel doesn't, and I just hate it so much.

I, too, am interested in hearing how Windows 8 is not meant to be an exercise in self-torture.


In other news, the weather is trying to wash Tucson away.  It nearly managed it near where I live, but it won't manage it, sadly. 
I am soaked and freezing and I wish it would stop raining.

I'm not entirely sure who this fuckwit is, but apparently he's famous:

The singer Cee Lo Green has discussed a court case in which he pleaded no contest to supplying ecstasy to a woman in a series of tweets, including one that read: “People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!”

Yeah, you probably don't need to bother with more than that here.

Nooooo, Cee Lo Green, whyyyy?

Well, this is new.  My uni finance department is refusing my payment.  Usually they have no problem taking vast amounts of money off me, whether I'm willing to give it to them or not.

Double down. Send as many tiny payments as possible, send cheques if possible. Create administration costs far in excess of your outstanding debt.

You know it makes sense.

 :lulz:  It's the only way to be safe.

Whaaaat the hell?

Well, that processor is not the most powerful thing on earth.  Only 1.35 GHz and a dual core...it should probably handle Office and a browser at the same time, but I wouldn't bet on it taking much more.  I'm running a processor with 2.3 GHz, which is probably around what you should be looking for in a current laptop model (remember, mine is now 2 years old).

Also, I'm wary of HP because their laptop models generally have weak hinges and external casing.  By the end of my last HP laptop's life, I was literally holding the screen up with one hand while typing with the other.  It was terrible.  By contrast, I've had two Toshiba and one Samsung laptop since then (and had flatmates with Samsung laptops) and all are in full working condition, even three years later.

But of course, you can only buy what you can afford.  Maybe keep those models in mind for the future?

I will definitely keep this stuff in mind, thanks a bunch.

I am looking for a new laptop for school.  There are too many options, and I can't even anymore.

Some suggestions would be appreciated.  I need Microsoft Office to run on it, it needs to be hard-wearing, and multiple CPU eating tasks have to run on it at the same time without it going HRRGRK.

Anything by Samsung or Toshiba.  Ideally you want 4 gig of RAM, at least an intel core i5 processor and, if your preferences run that way, Windows 7 as opposed to Windows 8.

You should be able to score a fairly cheap laptop with those specs, which will work exceptionally well as an all purpose web browser and word processing laptop. 

Mine is similar to that (slightly more RAM, two rather than one integrated graphics card, Samsung, Windows 7) and I can run Windows Media Player, have 20 tabs open on Firefox, have Word open, have uTorrent open, have Microsoft Security, Steam and Origin running in the background, and have no discernible notice on the laptop itself.

All Samsung PCs were $350+ (which would have totalled like $740), and Toshiba was even more.  I got a HP Pavillion 15 with 4 gig RAM, Windows 8.1 (because they don't sell 7 anymore) and AMD E1-6010 APU processor, which means fuck all to me, I just copied it from the system specs thing.

Just a few more weeks.

My ex told me he is going around telling people that the other night, when I went to the kitchen for some ice and he was standing in there naked, I looked at him like he was going to rape me. And how insensitive that makes me.

I have no idea what night this was supppsed to be. When he told me this is what he was telling others it led to a very stupid discussion wherein I said I didn't think he'd do that and he replied by asking me what was wrong with him disrespecting my boundaries if I wasn't worried about rape.

I told him he was seriously fucked up and needed therapy. Then he asked if we were still friends. I left.

Later, I asked my roommate about the convo since he said he told her. She says that convo never happened.

So he is making stuff up to talk to me about rape.

Good to know.

What the shit?   :eek:
