Finn is not bad, I don't have any problems with that personally.

 

And sticking with name changes I was considering changing my name to 'Vercetti42'. Is it a good choice or is 'Blade Runner' a better choice?

Vercetti42 is good, Blade Runner, quite generic.
AceKingston is good though.

I think I am sticking with my original name, I like it. Finn is boring, if I change it I will become Chunky Lee Chong.

Chunky Lee Chong is already taken I believe. Some older member had it but he later changed it to Desmodesci, so I am not sure if you will be able to change it or not.

 considering changing my username to just "Finn". Should I bother?

 

If it's not for (4) life, sure! But, you'll have to wait for the promised forum change.

Yeah I know, it still is Chunky Lee Chong. But I can change it easily enough. I can simply make it Chunky Lee Chong.

Problem solved.
But I doubt i'll change it.
@lil weasel, it's already here?

Would a 1000 watt UPS use up that much power all the time, even if my computer only uses 600 watts? I'm imagining the UPS would charge all the time if you have stuff running through it, but I'm not sure about the power consumption.

 

Edit: Actually, I don't think the UPS charges all the time. I'm imagining it fills up its battery and only uses that stored power when power cuts happen, and then it recharges. I think I've just answered my own question, but I might be wrong.

You'll typically have a little bit of power overhead with a UPS, but yeah, on average, it will draw roughly the same amount of power as the devices draw from it. So if you have a 600W PC running off of it, it will be drawing about 600W.

 

By the way, PC won't draw 600W constantly either. A PSU is basically just a fancy transformer with a rectifier, and a bunch of PC components only get power-hungry when used. GPU and HDDs are both rather variable and they make up a large chunk of your power consumption.

 

Depending on how the UPS is set up, the battery might get partially drained and recharge as the drawn power varies and/or as the supply voltage fluctuates. That's not very good for the battery, and it's a mark of a crappy UPS. A good UPS will charge up the battery and keep it charged so long as voltage in doesn't drop bellow a certain level. (An even better UPS might work with a wide range of input voltages as well, making sure that fluctuations in supply don't cause it to switch to backup so long as the supply current is steady.) So details vary quite a bit, but no UPS is going to just draw its nominal power all the time.

Any brand you would recommend? One that would protect my PC from overvoltage, which has all or most of the useful features a UPS would have.

Sorry, don't know specific brands. I always just build my PC with a PSU that has built-in surge-protection features, and outages were never a big enough problem for me to worry about.

Studying a few hours before you go to sleep, and taking a glance at what you studied after you wake up to refresh yourself is what's supposed to work best. You shouldn't lose more than three or four hours of sleep for the sake of studying, generally.

 

And sticking with name changes I was considering changing my name to 'Vercetti42'. Is it a good choice or is 'Blade Runner' a better choice?

 

Vercetti definitely. Blade Runner is probably taken already, and references to movies, books, etc. as usernames end up sounding lame most of the time. :/

Any spider experts here? Because not too long ago I saw a spider on a wall in my house and I've been wondering what kind of spider it is.

It was blackish or dark grey, very flat (I swear it could've been as flat as a sheet of paper lol), and if I remember correctly it had 4 legs (although it might have been 6, I dunno). It had a small body but long legs. It was also EXTREMELY fast when I moved closer. Holy sh*t, I've never seen something of that size moving that fast. It literally took about 1 second for it to run 3 meters or so. It was about the size of the lid of a can of Pringles :)

I've seen the spider 3 times now (and of course I forget to take a picture of it every time), and Google didn't help. I'm just curious to find out more about that thing. I guess I could probably try to find a book about spiders in my country, but I thought I'd ask here first, although I doubt any of you lot can help :p

Got a little question about Windows Live. As some of you might know, I usually download an illegal copy of a game before buying it, to know is it worth playing if demo isn't available. Anyways, I happened to try out one game, which needs Windows Live, and now it's in the games list even though I've uninstalled the game long time ago. Is there a way I can remove the game from the list?

I'm not an expert on anything really but I do know that spiders are supposed to have 8 legs so either the one you found was victim to some animal cruelty or maybe it wasn't a spider. :p Besides, spiders creep me out, I don't even want to think about what they look like in South Africa.

If it had less than eight legs it wasn't a spider.

Man I don't know what I saw then. In all honesty, I did not know that ALL spiders have 8 legs :blush: Maybe the thing I saw had 8 legs and I just didn't pay attention... I'm sure it was a spider tho, so then it must've had 8 legs

But no matter what I google (4 or 6 legged spider like insect, flat fast spider, whatever) I can't find it anywhere. I'll go spider hunting later, I know I saw it twice in my garage, so who knows, it might still be there...

Edit: I have to say THIS spider looks very close to the one I saw, but it's not the same. The legs, body and color are different, but it's close. This is the giant house spider and the fastest spider in the world according to wikipedia..

Anyway, spiders don't usually bother me (I let a black widow walk on my arm once, the one with the red pattern on its back), but what would I do if I saw this:

I hate baby spiders!!!

Just something I found, so sorry for going off topic :)

He's asking whether you can get someone's picture from facebook without 'friending' them.

 

@alexx720 And it's not really something anyone should be telling you how to do either, even if it wasn't as easy as googling "how to get picture from facebook without friend". And it's against Facebooks terms of service anyway.

Erm, no he wasn't even asking a question, he has been trolling around Gen-Chat of late if you didn't notice. (Probably Rizqan maybe?)

 

And why did you change your username? I liked 'zoo3891' better.

@Hameer, Probably because V has been released.. the trolls have went back into their caves, others are preparing their guts for American thanksgiving soon and not to mention money for dentists once Halloween hits.

 

Ed: late post .. for some reason I clicked last unread post and it took me a few pages back.

Just out of curiosity, do the military medics carry these white pathes with the red cross in combat/war time? they look like if they could give possition away the position of the soldier...

Like in the picture above, of an US Airborne soldier with one of these pathes, taken during the op. Golden Pheasant, in 1988, where US Airborne troops were deployed in Honduras for intimidating the Nicaraguan forces and training the local ones, but there wasn't combat.

Oh, alright, I didn't see that. This guy either knows how to speak decent Spanish, or how to use Google translate, so it's probably not Rizqan. :D

 

I changed my name because I wanted to change my name to something else, but didn't put any thought into it, it's from some character's name in a book that I thought sounded neat at the time, also the other names I was going to use were taken. At least I have something to look forward to next year. :p

Would that be effective, though? If I were a commander, I would try to shoot all the specialists first (medics included) before engaging the riflemen and stuff
