      New cheap computer...

      Sup guys…so whose computer savvy?

      Looking to get a new cheap one. Mine is shoot. Not going to go into details about what’s wrong with it.
      It was fairly cheap when I bought it, it’s been a few years so I just want a new one.

      Don’t have the extra cash on hand to find one on ebay or any of the other sites, so I’ll probably just look at dell or somewhere where i can finance for a few months. Found one for around $350 on dell. Here’s a description. All im really looking for is would this cover FFXI and regular day to day stuff (internet, Micosoft office stuff, saving/storing pictures…etc).

      I don’t really do much out of the norm.

      Looks like a fairly solid rig for $350, aside from the graphics card. If all you're looking for is for a machine to handle internet, word processing and FFXI then I'd say that looks like a good deal. Again, my only concern is that onboard graphics cards tend to blow ass when it comes to handling games, even ones as old as FFXI.

      Re: New cheap computer...

      Well…a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, I used to play the game on my laptop. Infact probably for at least the first 3-4 years.

      I found the lap top and it still has ffxi loaded on there. Unfortunately when I try and log in, it keeps telling me I have the incorrect PO-ID or password. Can’t figure out why it’s not letting me though on there. Would passwords be different between machines?

      Not sure what’s salvageable. Not sure how to find that out. I can’t even put in the original disk and reformat. I’ll have to take a screen shot next time and show you the screen that pops up.

      Re: New cheap computer...

      you kept trying the same login/password over and over and eventually it worked? doesnt make a ton of sense but what do i have to lose.

      oh, got a new issue today!
      Got an emal on phone this morning at 2am (which i assume is when they do the montly billing)

      said 'blah blah blah due to a billing error the following account has been cancelled, to reactivate blah blah blah...etc'

      I seen that before when i didnt have enough in my account. so i checked my bank, turns out i had enough...even AFTER they billed me twice this morning.

      so yup, looks like i paid twice for March and my account is cancelled. makes perfect sense

      thats great man

      you might as well post your login info here so u can get hacked
      that would make it a perfect month for you

      anyways just make sure you use your old password an your new SE password in the right spots
      you also gotta scratch your head 16 times an scream at the computer screen over an over again before it will work

      there's a good chance i'm going to buy a new one. still not 100% sure if my current one is fix able. i have a buck or 2 coming to me w/in the next week so if it's cheaper to fix i may go that route.

      i am dying here though. started playing ffxii again just to pass some time. also picked up Mario Party 9 which is pretty fun.

      i'll be back asap though. i sweaaa

      Well, on the brightside, I’ve gotten some things done

      Picked up Mario Party 9 (love those games)
      Finally finished LoZ Twilight Princess
      We’re moving in a couple weeks and found a bunch of my old games…played some of those
      -have you ever played Brigandine for Playstation? I LOVE(D) that game…picked it up again, been playing it for hours ><

      I don't think a day goes by that she doesn't regret that decision, but what's done is done. (Though she does enjoy the LEGO games)
