    Shit, mine's probably coming up soon as well. 7th though, not 9th.

    I'd imagine the life expectancy depends on the water in your area. (i.e. is it hard or soft, concentration of minerals etc)

    The Official World of Warcraft Thread

    Something something construction workers, but today at Blizzcon, Blizzard announced that they're working on official Classic (Vanilla) servers. Not much in the way of details yet, but it's in the works.

    The "Things that annoy me" thread

    There's two different rulesets that govern this. Associated Press Handbook (AP) vs the Chicago Manual of Style. [Here's](http://apvschicago.com/2011/05/numbers-spell-out-or-use-numerals.html) a handy article that explains the differences as they pertain to numbers. Personally, I prefer the...

    You aren't truly listening to music like it's meant to be unless it's played by marbles:

    Does Kansas count, even though it's a band and not a song?

    The "New Toys" Thread

    Certain games run noticeably better on an SSD, particularly in an MMORPG kinda setting where there's a fair number of loading screens. Like in World of Warcraft for instance, my QoL went up massively when I moved it to an SSD. It's the difference between a half-second loading screen or one that...

    iPhone / iOS Thread

    I pay like $1/month for 50 GB of iCloud storage. It's nice to have, honestly.

    I mean, people ask that of gay people all the time. "How do you know you don't like sex with girls/boys if you've never tried?" I'm not asexual or gay myself (I'm bisexual, so I don't get not being attracted to someone on basis of genitals but hey), but I'd imagine that they can know without...

    I have a feeling they probably purposely misspell common names just to make their shift a little more interesting.

    I personally use push to talk. I can't stand people who use voice activation and then don't mute their mic when they're eating or coughing.

    The "Things that annoy me" thread

    99% of Windows vs Linux vs Mac comes down to personal preference. I will say that for the field I'm in (publishing), it's just about required to have familiarity with Mac, because it's sooooooo much easier to deal with ebooks on OS X. So my personal computer is a Macbook Pro, that I have...

    I just use a variety of the default tones that come on an iPhone. I'm lazy and boring. My phone's on vibrate 90% of the time anyways, I find it kinda rude to have it on noise-making-mode in public.

    What's your latest [non-technology] purchase?

    F****t. The only slur in that post that I quoted.

    What's your latest [non-technology] purchase?

    Can we not use that word please? I know it's been discussed on this board before, but slurs are no bueno. Also you may want to look up the idea of "toxic masculinity". There is no one way to "be a man" - if you identify as a man, you're a man and therefore "act like a man". Easy.

    I don't even really have much in the way of clocks anymore now that I have a smartphone. I always just look at that first before thinking to look elsewhere.
