Probably The Worst Company in History 😈

Jesus sounds like ASUS in Spanish and a Donkey in Switzerland German, ASUS can be called a Donkey’s Ass

Turns out ASUS has a name that sounds like Jesus and probably more depending upon what language you know, personal I can tell you this much, ASUS ant no fucking saint or God for that matter.

It all began with Dream Machine 2014 and the USB ports disconnecting and reconnecting. Wait one moment, it began the first time I ever owned a ASUS product, witch was in 2006 when the motherboard would hang almost a minute before completely booting. It was ASUS P4S800D-X a ugly looking motherboard and something I could case less about at the time because the one before, ASRock motherboards wait one moment again isn’t ASRock a knock off of ASUS, Yes that’s right!.

ASRock may of been a knock off of ASUS back then and as of now ant anymore, guess that’s why the NAS\Server is still running. What went down for the ASUS Maximus VII Hero motherboard when I first got it, was the USB disconnecting and reconnecting and thought it was insignificant power been deliver to USB ports. This happened once every often and could be replicated so easily.

Until one day just before E3 2015 when summer was about to began it happened, I completely lost it, literally lost it. Ten years messing around with PC’s aka Machines and to only hate them has mush has it did when it took place.

ASUS caused over a decade all relationship to almost end on the cause of me losing what I love doing, been a machine head and pure PowerUser that most of you wouldn’t hold shit to, honestly I would burn this vessel up to prove you wrong along with me eating your soul in the progress.

Batman Arkham Night

Batman Arkham Knight Insider 😀

Super excited for this launch, now if I only had time to play Arkhan City and Origins

Computex 2015 is over and Electronic Entertainment Expo E3 is just around the conner June 16-18, I though it would be a excellent time to play catch up on some backlog videos. The first Batman game I ever Played happen years ago on the Super Nintendo, witch by the way was like watching a horrible 1960 horror film.

Then came Batman Arkham Asylum WTF! Yes the game at the time and still yet today was that amazing. Not going to cover what was awesome about the game you’ll have to fine that one out for yourself or just watch a Review, either way the Batman Arkham Asylum, Bioshock and S.T.A.L.K.E.R will always be with me.

Batman Arkham Knight will be one of the best games in the franchise and to kick things off I’ll be putting all the Insider videos together to watch in one comfortable place. Sure you can watch them on Youtube but it would be nice have them here as well, plus I like to mention the new Batman Arkham Knight Poster that’s going to be hanging on the wall one day if I can fine a frame for it. Oh and you many wanna checkout Nvidia’s incredible GameWorks effects for Batman Arkham Knight that’s of course if you own a Nvidia graphics card.

Keep Your Shit Clean!

Keep Your Work Organized

Easily said then done, when your working with so many different programs

The title pretty much says it all when you’ve been sitting in front of a screen for countless days and nights trying to clean the mess you wish you never had or created. Keep your fucing shit clean simple as that right, of course that’s virtually impossibly when dealing with Wordperfect docs that wasn’t looked at when you were done saving it. Yeah look is what I’ll definitely be doing for everything that lands on the Portable flash drive.

Never will I again keep such shit laying around on the Portable flash drive, there was service packs, drivers, notes from this years Dream Machine… I mean last year that is and a crap load of fucked up Wordperfect docs that looked like it was created by a idiot that had no clue what he was doing, Me!

So the awful nightmare began with a folder called Zero Temp, yeah Zero my ass, started with that folder and ended up running in the PowerUser Tutorials and realized that not only were they extremely huge in size but just all fucked up like a pill popping, eye rolling drunk, they all had to be fixed.

Images not centered neither were they Preserve width and height ratio etc. After spending days and countless hours going through each one something was noticed with Wordperfect and the way it handles image files in the documents and couldn’t understand until I did some digging. Apparently other people had the same problem were they where using JPEG or for that matter any of the following format GIF, PNG, TIFF and BMP. When doing PowerUser Tutorials I would usually use Greenshot to capture the image that was needed and just copy and paste it in the Wordperfect document, Pressing Ctrl + S and Alt + F4 to exit not looking at the size of the document.

ASUS and Corsair point Fingers

ASUS and Corsair Point Fingers Again

After Dream Machine 2014 ASUS and Corsair totally lost the respect it once had from me

It’s only feels like a month ago, that I totally lost it with this years Dream Machine 2014 because of the problems I was faced with, thanks to ASUS and Corsair. Checkout that post/article and you’ll clearly see what I’m talking about.

Now that the secret’s are pouring out to what caused ASUS X99 Deluxe motherboard to blowup when Legit Reviews were running benchmarks has finally come to a conclusion, and by that, don’t purchase or even think about buying a ASUS or Corsair product. Trust me when I say such meaningful things about these company’s, they are the devil and nightmares you really hate so much, that your willing to stay awake for days to just avoid them.

Between both of these company’s I would say ASUS would be the one, you first look at when entering the nightmare from hell, there are a few things that I didn’t mention in the Dream Machine post and that was the Event ID 219 been caused in the Event Viewer because of ASUS UEFI-BIOS been buggy as shit. The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device ACPI\PNP0A0A\2&daba3ff&2. enough said about that, same problem seems to lay in their UEFI-BIOS that cause a $1000 dollar Central processing unit to blowup along with the motherboard.

So were does Corsair come into all of this, if they had their Overcurrent Protection (OCP) enable by default with original ‘old’ AXi series power supplies when they first shipped their PSU’s, then maybe it would’ve stopped Intel’s Core i7 5960X from smoking. Sure ASUS had a part too, that addresses this issue by balancing start-up and shutdown power loads across all VRM Phases when the processor is drawing less than 50 amps. Read the article from Legit Reviews and you’ll see were I’m going with this, all their software bundles are useless crap and completely unreliable, support for firmware seems to be like the days waiting around for AMD Radeon drivers. I have noting nice to say about ASUS or Corsair and probably will never again.

After almost two months trying to fine out the problem to what made everything blowup Corsair had this to say when Legit Reviews asked them If users cannot upgrade the firmware at home, can users exchange their PSU for a model with OCP enabled by default? NO really after all the shit you guys caused and the answer is flat NO. I didn’t checkout my PSU because I’m not unhooking everything and taking out the PSU to see if Corsair sold me something that was listed in their specs on their website that should’ve been enabled but default.

Console Ports Continue to disappoint PC Gamers

Consoles Ports Continue to Make Progress

Lately it been noting but a negative emotional state for PC Gamers like myself

The console ports just keep rolling in for the PC Gamer, it was only last week that I finished reading about Shadows of Mordor and the system requirements using 6GB of VRAM and couldn’t understand why they would ever list a requirement for such a game that little or no buddy seems to have. What 3% of gamers can max out the settings, so what maybe they should truly develop a game that ant a fucking console port.

At this rate the Future PC Games list seems to be getting lite, why should I purchase Shadows of Mordor if the graphics is no better then the stupid consoles honestly though why? When I can still buy it for the PlayStation 3, and when that time comes it could be priced for no more then $10 dollars, hell I’ve been purchasing games for the PS3 the last month from the Superstore with a price label of $4.97 dollars. Yes four fucking dollars seriously I’m not kidding you, I have like 130+ games most of them not even open because the 300GB HDD is just about full.

So reading this shit just makes me fucking mad, even more that Evil Within runs at 30FPS, in letterbox WTF! So now we have Dead Rising 3, Shadows of Mordor and now The Evil Within, it’s happening again. Turns out that once again the consoles come first, it’s the unified RAM which can be used as both system and video memory that’s why we have those fucked up requirements here’s a quote from The 3D of Guru:

The Lab is Officially Complete

Even though the office room is complete, that doesn’t mean it’s over

The year 2014 is almost over and fall is finally here, with fall taking place you may notice that things are going to slow down to a crawl. Let it be computer hardware, gaming, going out, seeing people and the tourists in your town is just about over, well for this community I live in at least, and that’s a positive thing for the most part. This means I have more time for gaming, considering all the carpenter work I finished not to long ago, yes The Lab is finally complete and my life is some what back to normal.

We purchase a new 2014 KIA car, no more of that shit, fuck I hate vehicles seriously though I really do hate them because of so many different form factors that exist in the industry. I much ratter study carpenter work then vehicles plus the money involved is just insane. So you can forget me working on anymore vehicles ever again, specially when everything is done for you, don’t even have to worry about changing oil because they do it, hell they even phone you when your time is ready. Stress Free for the most part when it comes to the vehicle.

Laid the baseboard mouldings Monday of this week, followed with jacking the gable end wall and doing a few other tweaks along the way. I did manage to record most of it as there are a lot of raw video to go through, but did mange to conquer it. The videos should be upload to the Youtube channel soon or later, because well I’m gaming and finishing up other things that been hanging out in my head like forever, Bookmarks need organizing, about fifty Windows 7 Tutorials left to complete and the Storage cabinet needs to be clean.

The iPhone 6 Ad Campaign for Apple Fan-boys

What about iPhone Products, here’s one besides it been more stupid then Smart, it’s Apple

You know it’s bad when you have Apple using some Trick Photo To Make their New iPhones Look Thinner, c’mon really they wouldn’t do that, what are you? A PC Fan-boy. Apple is noting more then a highly respectable company, so much so that Microsoft now theses days can’t wait to be like them, there’s no way in hell they could ever come up with such a crooked idea, not alone doing it.

I hate all Macintosh products and never in my life time did I ever own one, when someone tells me they purchased a Apple Laptop, I say good for you while I secretly roll my eyes and tell them your better off considering where Microsoft it headed with Tables and Touch screens, that on buddy seams to care for no matter how hard they try to force it on their customers. Yes! please leave your DNA all over my screen while your at it.
