It is way too hot. Why do people live here voluntarily? Lol.

I remember when Amy first started this site, a decade ago (yikes!)OMG, way to make me feel old there!
In any case, I apologize for any offense. None was intended.Thank you.
Women in Mandalorian culture are treated as equals and are trained to be warriors alongside the men. You cannot marry a mandalorian without becoming part of the culture.
Women in Biker culture have typically been seen as subservient and considered property. This is true however only for hang-arounds who allow themselves to be treated as such, like groupies to a rock band. They partners of full patch members are considered part of the culture. They are not truly equal in that they don't ride and aren't a part of the democratic running of the chapter, but they hold a lot of power over their men, and are equally devoted to the club and its lifestyle.
"We did it. We showed them we are real women dealing with real men. I'd much prefer to be living with an OMC member than some dork who is a pawn in the system" stated one woman who felt she and her peers had "set the record straight" -wiki
'Female partners, sisters, mothers, aunties and children, particularly female children, are often the central meaning of a club member's life. In the vast majority of cases, the children and partners of the members are the reason for their existence as men and their job, as a man, is to protect the women and children. Their women are fiercely proud to be partners of outlaw motorcycle club members.' -wiki.
Hey all, it's been a very long time since I've been on, but I wanted to let you know that I will be shipping out to USMC Basic in San Diego on Sunday. Semper Fi!Take care and good luck!
As Talo said, a desktop is the best for gaming. You can get gaming laptops but they cost a fortune and you can't really upgrade them. I personally love having a desktop because its very easy to get new components and they have far better performance (no need to balance power with battery life like on a laptop). I'd also recommend home-building it if you can as you'll get much better components for a better price if you do.This. You should only consider a gaming laptop if you are away from home a significant period of time, and do a lot of gaming (or want to) when you are. I got an awesome expensive gaming laptop last summer... but I also have a lot of discretionary income at the moment. And I do spend quite a bit of time away from home, and my husband makes use of my computers for gaming too.
You could if you really wanted double-up on the graphics card using SLI (NVIDIA) or CrossFire (AMD), and this will improve performance as one graphics card can handle graphics processing whilst the other does physics, however my PC does just fine with one card and honestly I wouldn't recommend it unless you want the absolute best graphics (after all, 2 cards will produce extra noise and heat). It also limits your choice of motherboards and cases as you need a motherboard with 2 graphics card slots and likely a full size tower-case capable of holding such a long motherboard.The only person I know who uses dual video cards is my brother, and he does computer graphics research for a living. So yeah, IMO not worth it unless you are always buying the best video card out there.
One other thing to note with RAM is that if you have 4GB or more of RAM then you must get a 64 bit operating system. 32 bit operating systems can't handle more then 4GB of RAM, so anything above that is wasted on them.I highly highly recommend going with a 64-bit system, for this and other reasons. Almost every reason for sticking with 32-bit (ie. compatibility) is not an issue anymore. The only time you'll come across it is if you try to play REALLY old 16-bit games. (Even then there are workarounds.) 64-bit is new standard, get it.
Personally, I'd say go for Windows 7 (Home Premium will be fine), however if you feel you can get on with the Windows 8 'Metro' interface then it'll be just as fine (and not to mention about 1/3 of the price). We can't really help you with this bit as its more personal choice (since Windows 7 and 8 have more or less the same performance and the same features).This.
One more thing I want to mention quick is a rough price estimate. I don't know exactly what prices you're looking at for components as I only know UK prices, but at a guess I'd say you're looking $500 - $700 to get a desktop machine at the specs you want, twice that if you want the equivalent laptop. And again, you'll get a better deal if you home-build, but you will be able to find pre-build machines with the specs you need if you're not confident enough making your own PC.For comparison, I usually spend between $1500 and $2000 on a new gaming PC (including taxes), but I know things are generally cheaper in the US, and I certainly go all out in certain areas (eg. video cards). And I usually let my brother talk me into getting components that I don't *really* need, haha. The flip side is my computer runs amazingly for years and I don't have to worry about it not running some new game that comes out during that period.
To further my rant earlier, I made the mistake while checking out the update, on a level 2 character, of noting my "venomous hatred" (as they so call) for the game. The community, which I thought I was a part of, promptly cast me aside, kicked me out the door, and shouted a bunch of "******" at me.I would have done the same. You come to my playground and if all you can do is complain about how you hate the playground, then you can just GTFO. It's people like you that ruin the game community.
