    Why are uploads slower than downloads? That's easy. When you upload, the computer has to push the bits upward. When you download, the bits just fall by gravity, so it's much faster.

    Ykyagw you don't get the warranties for desktop machines because a) Some warranties are voided by installing a different OS, and b) Because you can fix a desktop machine yourself anyway.

    Otis will be coming to visit you and Talsemgeest shortly... Please hold, your LARTing is important to us...

    P.S. YKYAGW you know where Otis originally came from... anyone that can answer that right gets a "Get out of LART free" card.

    If you get a warranty on a desktop, you are not a geek. Real geeks build their desktop and get warranties on the parts.

    Yes, building it yourself is geekier (and is my preferred choice), but maybe you'll want to get a brand-name computer (such as an Alienware) that you can't just get the parts for. (In Alienware's case, it would be the case.) Or you might want to get it as a base system that you can upgrade later. Again, building a computer myself is my preferred choice of action both because it's cheaper and because it's more fulfilling, but that would probably also be cliched enough to get me a LARTing from darth_indy, like the one you got.
