How long did it take you to notice that the poll changed? (11-26-2012)

I noticed fairly quickly.
It took me a while...
There's a poll in this topic? Since when!?

Gaming laptops will never be worthwhile until a viable cooling solution can be found.

Don't drop money on any laptop claiming to be a "gaming" laptop. Stick with a cheaper, reliable model with a video card that isn't hyper-powered. It'll probably run whatever you want, anyway.

I would say not. Whoever put that list together bought a 7.1 headset with a 5.1 sound card. Talk about an ignorant fool.

Gentlemen.
There is, of course, a difference between having a laugh with someone, and having a laugh at their expense

Taking some mandatory training at work:

Question #11

You have heard a Code Yellow, what do you do next?
A .Call Security. 
B. Ask your supervisor or locate your departmental emergency plan. 
C. Immediately inform all patient and visitors of the emergency while crying hysterically.   

Question #19
You are on the elevator when it suddenly stops between floors. What do you do?
A. Scream for help. 
B. Activate the alarm button in the elevator or the phone switchboard with the elevator phone. 
C. Try to open the elevator doors to get out.   

Question #24
You have a Code Pink situation, a child or infant abduction has been attempted. If you are the person who discovered the attempt, what should you do?
A. Pull the fire alarm. 
B. Call your emergency number to report the incident and immediately let your supervisor know so that the  nearest exits are guarded. 
C. Wait and see if the child returns.
 

Normally these are not part of our training needs, but this year all employees need to train and clear on a lot of things we have nothing to do with. The annoying part is not all of the techs need to take it, near as I can tell it depends on your telephone number and listed location. So two of the team who's phones are forwarded from the corporate office are exempt, yet they spend more time in patient's rooms than we do.

So I was in this charity shop this morning to dump some stuff, and they had some games there. Earthworm Jim 3D for the PC, Donkey Kong 2 and some Game & Watch collection for the GBA, and some PS1 games. I almost bought some, but I'm not sure I'd play them. Are any of those worth getting, for either collection or fun value?

Well, I'd pick up Earthworm Jim 3D for pure fun value. The Game & Watch one is packed with content and was not released in Japan (if you care about that) and is a bit rare. Skip Donkey Kong. Also, what are the PS1 games?
