What's it called the meme where there's a guy who raises his arm to ask something, but then gives up?

so why doesn't the SEARCH feature work on all the sections of the forum?
Seems mean to chastise a Member for not using it when it doesn't work...

[Edit]: It shouldn't show on the main boards if it isn't available.
It seems to only be available inside a topic, which won't help a person to avoid making a new topic duplicate.

http://global3.memec...g_c_1017510.jpg  is that what you mean? I tried searching for "speechless guy meme" but that is apparently not the name.

Because it's a bad search feature. Google works really well for searching forums where threads are public, I really wish more people would reccomend it when others have trouble with the site's search feature. :/

I think he means "why not use it if you already have it". I don't know either, I've never had a car of my own but if I did I think I'd love a sunroof. It's the same as having the windows open, I like it and it can be very nice but no one else I ever drive with likes that either. >.<

I agree. If I had a sunroof, I'd be fine leaving it like this:

It just looks so open.

How do I shrink gifs so they fit as signatures and/or avatars? :( I want to actually learn how to, not have someone else do it for me.

You'll need a program that can edit gifs, I personally use Animation Shop 3, it's quite old school looking, but within it you do have the option to compress the gif, which

usually make it look a little grainy, you can resize the whole animation as in dimensions, or depending on how many frames you have you could also try cutting out every 2nd, 3rd or 4th frame, which can potentially make it look a little choppy but it can reduce the size big time.

 

Once you have the software you need it's quite straightforward, but if you help with the program one you have it then just give us a shout.

Gimp is also popular and free. That's what I use for gifs. Might take some tinkering to get the hang of it at first though. 

 

There are also websites that can resize gifs for you as well. I've had this one in my bookmarks for a while now.

In preparation of GTA V, I want to build a gaming PC. Where should I start, and what all do I need to build one from scratch?

Really good processor

a really good graphics card

I'd probably start searching AMD's site or some of their competitors

 

you'll want something with 8GB of RAM or more. but 4 should do if you cannot upgrade it

 

OPTIONAL

Run Solid state drives if you can (pricey)

or a 1TB or more HDD

 

computer Speakers- dont worry too much- just get an external speaker and plug in

 

Internet connection- for online

a good router that can support a lot of devices

or run Ethernet <- the best

 

OS- Windows 7 (Windows 8 is a downgrade)

How do I sync two albums on my iPod without deleting all my other ones. First off, I placed a sh*tload of albums on my iPod sometime ago. Recently, I rebooted my computer and it deleted everything on it's hard drive. Downloaded iTunes again, and downloaded two album torrents. Dragged them on iTunes, and when I try to sync, it comes up with a message saying that if I accept to sync, it'll delete all my info and apps on my iPod.

Oh. Well, some people think using it too much can cause leaks in the roof. My uncle is an example of that.

I have bad vision in my right eye and basically perfect vision in my left eye and the defect I have is apparently genetic. I forgot what the name of the condition was.

 

My question is this: the doctor said that they can't put a "blank" lens on the glasses for my left eye and the required lens for my right eye. Is this really true? She said that the difference between the eyes would be too confusing for the brain. Also, will my vision in my left eye get worse if they put in a weaker lens? From what I've been told (and the Internet seems to confirm this), the defect I have can't be corrected anymore (perhaps only slightly) so is it really worth wearing glasses then? Or will my vision get worse if I don't wear any?

 

To tell you the truth I kinda hate glasses and I see quite well right now without them since the vision in my left eye is great.

Every single pair of glasses I've had in the past 18 years has had a 'blank' lens for my left eye.

This is more just a question of curiosity, I'm not planning on doing this.

 

What would be a reasonable price for a PC that could play GTA V to an average standard? I'm talking about just buying one, not purchasing different parts separately and then building it. Although I'm also wondering how much that would cost as well, like how much would you save if it was basically the same PC but instead of buying it you just built it yourself?

Ophthalmologist or Optometrist. Eye Doctor doesn't tell much.
I have run into Optometrists who are more interested in selling than treating.
Then again you can visit an Optometrist who will make anything You want.
Are you dealing with the Prescription writer or filler?
Get the prescription and take it to another dealer to fill.

Assuming the measuring method is the same across the world, the lens she recommended had a strength of 0.75 (I saw a little better with a 1.25, but to be honest none of them provided that much of an improvement). They said that the difference between the two eyes would be too big and therefore too confusing for the brain with no lens on the left side. Maybe your glasses were weaker and the difference between your eyes isn't so big? I don't know.

If the doctor said so then it's probably true. Sure asking questions online can help but there seems to be a trend here of people going to a gaming forum to question medical professionals. Just ask them why and they'll explain it to you. As far as I know, not wearing glasses won't worsen your condition. My opticians have never mentioned anything of the sorts, they've always said that age is the only thing that will determine where your vision will "level out", and that won't happen until you're in your mid 20's.

This is more just a question of curiosity, I'm not planning on doing this.

You're from the UK are you not? Buying one pre-built I'd say (the requirements haven't been released yet have they?) you'd need ~£600 for something that'll run today's games decently. Building yourself, hmm... I haven't done any comparisons but you could probably save a few tenners.

They might represent milia due to the skin healing over the pores you will have to have a doctor look at them to be sure
