I just came across this and thought we really should have a thread on it....

Note to Mac users - check which forum I have posted in :p

seen it before, but its really quite funny. Mac users tend to scare me with their almost religious devotion to the product. At the risk of starting an argument, does it really matter what OS your running if you still write in 1337 sp33k? ;)

I saw it some time ago too...but it didn't mention it was a prank when I saw it then. Everyone thought it was real, and I remember all the Mac zealots going nuts, claiming to be "sick in the stomach" and what not. Weird people... :D

Yeah, I saw the "I feel sick" **** first-hand. That's just ****ed up. Bunch of over-reacting sissies. Give mac owners a bad name.

The power supply had to be removed; it was hidden away under the lower panel. I installed in an ATX supply with Velcro:

I got as far as "...but I wanted a Dell for Christmas" and started laughing.

btw. I've been into computers since I first figured out what the 8 dip switches in my parents 8086 were for but don't hang out in too many forums and never in chat so what the heck is "1337"?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
