    So I've had my K70 for over a month now. I just noticed a film of disgusting finger grease on all the keys. For some reason the keys I don't use often are really gross. (Like the -=[] keys.) I had the same thing on my Apple keyboard except I never bothered to clean it and some keys got really nasty by the time I got my new keyboard.

    When I had my MacBook I'd wipe down the keyboard every now and then. I love having clean keys. It just feels good.
    Actually one time I had to wipe I'd down cause I got blood all over it. Funny story.

    Pentium II@133MHz
    32,128kb of RAM
    4GB HDD
    floppy
    cd drive
    They have 6 of them, and they all still work on Win NT 4.0

    regarding the whole battery discussion 2 pages back...

    I recently quit smoking cigarettes, and in order to do this, I purchased several vaporizers and delicious juices to kick the habit to the curb...from day one, it worked, with me never smoking another cig since my first purchase. im still newb to the vaporizer scene, but it has been since the beginning of March that I haven't touched a cigarette. My first Vaporizer was an Itaste VV, pictured below:
    VV.jpg

    After 3 months of using it (for nicotine, and, you know, "other" substances :) The contact element just wore out and basically was displaying error codes etc. Smashed and thrown out. Then, I was going to buy another one because I enjoyed the variable voltage and variable wattage. But I came across this one (pictured below). It is a iTaste VV MVP: vvmvp.jpg
    I highly recommend these 2 products for anyone looking to get into vaping (the MVP is roughly 20-25 dollars USD upgrade from the standard VV, IMO WORTH IT!!)

    2 main reasons why I have the MVP now: Similar ease of use of the small pen, along with the same VV/VW. Another, is that the battery power is more than 3X the original. The Small VV was about 800mAh, whereas the MVP is about 2600mAh. Another reason, is that there is a switch and a USB port directly on the bottom of the MVP, allowing portable charging of devices (I have a Galaxy S4 root/hacked and OC'd, so it burns the battery like a Tahoe burns gas). The other nice feature, is that it has a passthrough battery design, so I can have it plugged in, charging the vaporizer, while charging my GS4 AND smoking at the same time. Lots of wires, yes, but how awesome is that? PLUS, when I have it fully charged, I just bring the 6" USB/MINI cable attachment along with me, so my cell phone basically has 2x the battery life, and it never dies on me. Without charging my cell phone, I simply switch the "output" switch OFF and the dam thing will keep me vaping for 2 or 3 days. There is a puff counter too, which is nice, so I can track my usage (when I started vaping, I was up to 600 - 700 puffs a day ((me being a 13 year Newport 100 smoker)) and now I am at about 100-200 a day, not including bud-wax :). Anyway, just found the discussion about the batteries (tl;dr) and it reminded me about this breakthrough in my life, plus the cool technical side of it. I am much happier and less wheezy since I started vaping, and I save HUNDREDS of dollars a month, enough to basically pay my $320/mo car payment which is nice :)

    Carry on chaps

    Well, I got my new laptop screen all put together and working. The pixel density is fabulous. (Went from 1280x800 to 1920x1200) but I'm pretty mad because the backlight is brighter on the top part of the screen than the bottom and there's a bunch of marks around the screen that are extremely annoying in brighter colors. It looks like someone hit the screen repeatedly.

    Also because the "original" and "OEM" panel rails and hinges were obvious Chinese replacements. The rails are the wrong size so the screen is only screwed in on the top part and the hinges were just so bad I'm using the old ones. When I opened a case in eBay the seller just told me "they do not even make aftermarket rails and hinges".

    Re: General discussion chat

    If I base it off of basic specs, and assuming that the laptop is something along the lines of an AST, maybe even a cheap Toshiba, I'd put the specs something around...

    Intel 880486 486 SX @ 33MHz (DX 33MHz if you're lucky).
    12 MB Ram (as you stated)
    ~250-300 MB HDD
    Possibly a VGA display @ 640x480, most likely CGA.
    Dual floppy drives

    It'd probably run some flavor of Mint, maybe even Gentoo.

    Laptops were nearly always SX because DX chips heated more. They were usually paired with extra math co-processors that could be installed later, or came with them from the factory.
