Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Laptop OS, and the possibly the most emasculating question ever
1) I bought a new laptop for college on w00t back in September. It's a Lenovo 3000 N100, and it came prepackaged with Vista. Halfway through the quarter it broke, and I only got it fixed earlier today. The issue is, I hate Vista. It does lots of things I don't need at the expense of resources I do. I also hate the hell out of configuring it. However, it does come with anti-virus. What I'm wondering is, does installing an OS that laptops do not come installed with usually violate warranty? I am considering either XP or Linux.
2) My cuticles are all fucked up. That region where the nails meet the skin and there's dead white crap. This is how little I know. Is there anything I can do stop them from cracking and general gnarliness short of going in for a pedicure?
