Geekophilia, Shopophobia, Light Bulb, and Trolling

<dragon> In Soviet Russia, light bulb screws you.
<abbe> :-D
<dragon> --dragon

after few minutes:

<abbe> coretemp-isa-0000
<abbe> Adapter: ISA adapter
<abbe> Core 0:      +99.0 °C  (high = +80.0 °C, crit = +100.0 °C)
<abbe> coretemp-isa-0001
<abbe> Adapter: ISA adapter
<abbe> Core 1:      +99.0 °C  (high = +80.0 °C, crit = +100.0 °C)
<abbe> :(

<abbe> i can go down any moment :(

after few minutes:

<abbe> I need 2 of them, and I think I'll go with nVidia
<abbe> shopping for computer hardware is the worst thing I ever want to do :(
<abbe> shopping for anything is a nightmare :(
<abbe> what do you say ?
<dragon> yep
<dragon> I agree hardware shopping is painful
<abbe> esp. while shopping when you realize how better this time could be spent in humanizing firefly or writing that awesome haskell program that could launch a nuclear attack (but instead if you weren't buying hardware at that time, you're actually trolling in firemoth@ :P)
<dragon> haha exactly.
<abbe> dilemma of whether to fall in love or deciding whether to spend time implementing something in python, java, perl, haskell is 3.14159 times better than deciding which hardware to buy
<abbe> but the best part of all this is typing this bullshit, instead of seriously deciding which hardware to buy :D
<dragon> lmao.
<abbe> so, an i7 CPU - 11K INR, a corresponding mobo - 5K INR, 6G DDR3 RAM - 5K INR, and spending infinite time deciding how to make up for this lost money -- priceless...somethings mastercard can help you lose, for other things you're the loser :p
<dragon> correct lol.
