Saw this at another forum. Helped me to figure out why a swat van has been parked outside my house for the last few days.

Have they gotten to Hayley yet?

haha !

It reminds me of a water leak we had in Ohio. The water company were parked outside of our house for two days trying to find out why we were using so much water

Turns out we had a foot of water in our basement and didn't even realise

I was thinking of posting this... Saw it earlier and found it quite amusing.

Very funny, but AMD need to be careful. I remember when they ripped the p*ss out of Intel after challenging them to a duel. Several months later up popped the C2D and ripped AMD to shreds! Kama is a bitch sometimes!

Haha I didn't know that

I don't think Fermi can change though in all honesty. I mean, the tech is what it is. I don't think they can come up with a way to make it run cooler and eat less power than it does now, and they've done so many millions into it that it's not like they can just dump it in the trash and do something else.
