I am a member of a small Division 2 PC clan with EU and NA members. We don't want to be listed as we are looking to stay fairly small compared to the big boy clans but if any duders would like to join do not hesitate to drop me a PM and I will get you invited. Thanks!

Hey dude,

Freezing sounds strange, have you got the latest drivers? I'll be honest with you, the 750Ti is a fairly old card at this point and won't set the world on fire with much of anything, but it should run games reliably at least. My first thought would be to take the card out, clean the gold contacts (with isopropyl alcohol if you have some handy) and re-seat the graphics card, make sure its firmly in the slot.

If that doesn't work you may want to contact the person you bought it from and see if they will accept a refund. Buying used hardware can be a gamble.

Hoep this helps.

Start it with this:

Most people think time is like a river that flows swift and sure in one direction, but I have seen the face of time, and I can tell you: they are wrong. Time is an ocean in a storm. You may wonder who I am or why I say this. Sit down, and I will tell you a tale like none that you have ever heard.

Look at the age of the posts, duder. Some spammer probably bumped this and their message got deleted but the topic still gets bumped.

Classic tactics used by any kind of salesman, not just car salesmen, to make you think that if you walk away you will be making a mistake. Don't buy it, man. As others have said, unless this place has something you really want I would take my business elsewhere to places where such cheap tactics are not employed.

EAC for ripping music CDs, there is literally nothing better if accuracy of the rips matters to you even slightly.
I use Handbrake for DVDs. Between those two that is a very, very solid combo in my humble opinion.

That's sad. I hoped they would bounce back but I guess LawBreakers really did flop that hard.

Back in the day when we we didn't have fancy personalised URLs to get us the premium casts I just switched to Podcast Addict and have never switched back. Hugely customisable, heaps of options, a dev that listens a cares. What more could you want?

Borat was pretty huge when it came out, it was probably one of the funniest movies i have seen as a kid.

The follow up - Bruno was had a kind of an ugly style of humor i don't think i was expecting so it really rubbed me the wrong way.

Still the only movie i have ever walked out on.

I stayed until the end but yeah, that movie was absolutely awful. I think on its own it would have just been a mediocre shock comedy flick but Borat was such a good film and an even better character, when you drop from that to Bruno I think that made the disappointment significantly worse.

OK, tough love. It sounds like your girl was looking for a reason to bail and used your work trip as the reason, honestly. If she wanted to make it work, she would've put the work in instead of arguing about petty nonsense.

"I don't know what I should be doing"

Sign up for that Tinder or whatever it is young people use to meet girls.

"and I really don't know if I still stand a chance"

You don't. She already moved on.

"but I'm thinking about asking her to meet me to talk things out"

There is almost no way this ends well for you.

"I don't want to lose her"

She's gone, bro. Sorry. It really sucks. You will not move on from reading my post, and that's OK. Take your time, and use it constructively. Get off the Internet. Work out. Learn something. Volunteer, it's a great way to meet people. Don't try too hard. You will not be able to completely avoid the pain, but the worst thing you can do is stew. Recognize that you are not trapped by your longing, that you really are free to find someone else, that your pain is fleeting and an opportunity for growth. Listen to The Cranberries. Hope that your ex-girl has a nice life, and be glad you're not part of it, she wasn't worth your time.

Your healing process will be a little rocky, but know that it's up to you, and you can start that process today, right now, by moving on. You. Will. Heal.

This guy is right.

I think Tom Hardy is an excellent choice but also too good an actor for such a role
