Does anyone know of a good way to stop the light leaking like that?

Cheers

 

Nice room, warm!

 

Mine is a bit cold... this is an old pic here:

It's actually the result of market strategy. At some point there was a guy who determined that the shoppers were more jolly and willing to spend money on Friday. Retailers collaborated with each other to only put out the new products on Friday mornings to try and bolster sales on days when shoppers were more likely to spend money.

In the US though where retailers are more spread out geographically, they noticed that many retailers were slow to get newly released products on the shelf for customers to purchase because of the increase in distance that the products had to be shipped. To allow the US retailers to have enough time to get the products on the shelf by Friday when shoppers were more prone to buy them, they needed the products in the stores on Tuesday. Fast forward a few decades into an era when logistics are a much bigger business and shipping times don't prevent retailers from stocking their shelves as quickly and you end up with a global market where US stores no longer need those extra days to stock their shelves and make the products available to consumers.

As for why the model for global marketing strategy of games has never been updated since is a mystery though.

With today's technology in the logistics and marketing industries, there really isn't a good reason for different release dates for different markets/regions, unless the sum of all regions is greater than the developer's ability to support a launch, but even that doesn't seem like a good reason to delay launch in some regions because most of the larger game publishers have a dedicated support team in each region where the game is released.

Here's some more information on the history behind it all though.

Really? Well that makes more sense. Well unless you're at the pub. You won't have any money left. Why can't I feel like that? I always buy things first and think later. I have so many games that I haven't even downloaded yet. Oh here's a question for the mighty brains of this community.

I need ram. For my girlfriend. (Well I rammed her last night but that's a different story). I was thinking that I might as well upgrade mine and give her my Vengeance. I was thinking something a long the line of 1866+. I have no clue about ram.

What's with you with all this information. You either very wise or like to read a lot. Or both for that matter. I like it!

The way you keep the top panel of your case opened at the rear gave me a fantastic idea on how to mount my top panel! biggrin.gif Been pondering how to fit a red acrylic panel on top and I have decided to do it a bit like how you did yours. THANKS!

Give her a good ram.. IYKWIM. applaud.gif Vengeance is good.

Anyways, go for the fastest ram your mobo can support and around 12-16GB is a good amount. And of coz if the colour of the ram suits your theme, that's sweeter.

I read everything I can get my hands on. To the point where I've run out of things to read, so whenever I see a question without an answer, I research it just to have a reason to find something to read.

It's a CDO thing.

FYI- CDO is just like OCD, but in the proper alphabetical order. wink.gif


As for memory... I'm probably the only person I know who feels this way, but I can't stand corsair memory. It's over-priced is my only complaint though. I tend to stick with G Skill or Crucial myself. Some of the Crucial Ballistix kits even come with LEDs built in now.

I would like to add Kingston to the list too. Never had issues and their RAM is usually quite affordable. Coraair is only for good looks.

What does IKYWIM mean? That is the longest acronym I have ever seen lol.


Nacirema:
That's good. I wish that I was committed lol.
I only read things that I enjoy doing. Even so, I still get bored reading about that!
I like learning but dislike reading. Oh unless it's a good book.


So what ram should I get for myself? I want 4x4GB but have no idea which ones are good. The whole timings thing confuse me.

Well i have it the exact same way i just research the questions/problems for the hell of it, and to help out of course biggrin.gif

I have OCD² or possibly √OCD, however you may look at it i do feel your pain.

IT HURTS . . .


Okay here is something to make it all good again

A cutting board for OCD people to make those mathematically perfect cuts.

Also if you ever go on reddit, then this subreddit is amazing and oddly satisfying of course http://www.reddit.com/r/oddlysatisfying/#page=1

Lower timings are better, and what comes to the speed, 1866 is yhe sweet spot, anything above is not really worth it for gaming. I think you should choose whichever manufacturer offers the best looking RAM (for your rig/taste) provided they have the same timings and frequency (CL10 and 1866 MHz should be good) otherwise there is no noticeable difference..
