It was very much inspired by the Fender logo. I also use the F in my own signature. My wife was the one to actually pencil it out on the panel as my artistic skills are nill.

My computer's a stock sony but i just bought a top of the line klipsch 5.1 unit and am enjoying it very much. I upgraded the soundcard to a turtle beach too, oh and i dropped in a 200 gig harddrive bumping me up to 320.

Ok so it isnt ALL stock.

Has a window but no lights. Various fans grind on boot-up. I hate it. A laptop is coming my way soon. Supposed to ship by the 3rd of October.

I'll have you know that my case features absolutely zero neon lights.

anyone seen the new 64bit AMD's? me want

I'm thinking I'm gonna wait for 64 bit to be more widely available/accepted before I invest in it...I'll just stick with a nice 32 bit processor for my next upgrade.

Where the hell did this statement come from?

Of course you bloody are! There are no consumer-level OSes out for 64-bit processors, let alone applications. It'll be a while yet before any 64-bit processing will be practical for consumers.

And FYI, Sun has had 64-bit processors and OSes for years, but nobody cares.

But what's the point of buying a 64-bit processor if all you're going to be doing is running 32-bit software on it?

the G5s have 64-bit, and Panther (OSX 10.3) is 64-bit, and Photoshop and lotsa other highend programs have optimazation patches out, not true 64 bit programs but optimized.

so Macs were behind PCs but now they are ahead, though they are a bit spendy at the moment, 2grand for a 1.6GHz.

whats the point of making 64bit software if nobody has the hardware to use it?

When most people have 64bit CPU's, THEN people will start making software for it.

The reason why nobody gives a shit about SUN's 64bit CPU's (and others) is because they are not backwards compatible, another words, they cant run the millions and millions of 32bit programs that are already out there.

AMD's way is the best, to provide a CPU that runs both 32bit and 64bit instructions natively, that way you can run all the old software that is already out there, AND you can run all the new 64bit software when it comes out.

ditto that...

Well, actually I see your point. When I made my first comment I had forgotten that the AMD chip was able to run 32-bit software seamlessly.

Hmmm...maybe I will go for 64 bit. I feel like a bit of a fool for opting out of DDR when it was a new technology and now look at me! I have no DDR!

Although I may be wrong, I believe that the Mac OSX operating system is 64bit. I know that the current G5 is 64bit and I think the G4 was also. Not sure though

//edit Oops, nevermind. Somebody else already beat me to it. However Mac's being behind PC, as far as technology goes I don't believe that.
