Got a copywright fine for torrenting call of jaurez back in 2007 from a private law firm. £30 for the game and £500 for all leeches I seeded like 30kb of data too. Sent a letter back acting like I dont know what torrenting was. Was never chased up. Months later the firm gets shut down as its owner was getting bomb threats and courts said they were out for easy money. People got letters from them for downloading gay porn and their familys opened them.
I got caught fucking OP's mom over a game of call of booty. My punishment was chicken tendies for dinner
>People got letters from them for downloading gay porn and their familys opened them.

Any unifags here? Starting soon and wondering if this kind of set up is often allowed in lectures; although I doubt most normies would even think about it. But why buy a chromebook or memepad if you're only use it to take notes, if a smartphone and a cheap bluetooth keyboard can do the job? I'm just worried most teachers would not allow it because they hate students playing with smartphones

At what price point can I get it all: good bass, and clarity on mids and highs with no compromise or muddiness?
You can probably get that at around the $300-400 price mark with a compromise on comfort due to weight with magnaplanars alike the HE400S.
Under $100. MDR-V6 or MDR-7506 is the cheapest that will do what you want.
HE-400S sound like ass, dunno why the audio press likes them so much, the measurements are nothing special too.
Motherboard model?

Hey /g/ I'm trying downgrade Windows 10 to 7 I have the boot/recovery disk for 7 but when I boot it though Legacy and get it going , when it choose custom install it says it can't be installed on any of the partition disks, there's an option to format them but Idk if that's what I should do to make it work and I can't find anything online that's what time trying to do just pointless simple shit, please help
Windows 10 fucks up the drive so you can't install a win 7 or a Linux on the partition, even after wiping.

Try formatting the partition while changing the file system, like 2 formats - 1 to fat32, another one back to NTFS. If works in most cases. If doesn't work low-level format the whole drive. Then it's guaranteed to work.

I need a break from web shit, does anyone know a quick and fun C book?
Why are you writing it in C?
Was this a design choice or you just like the language?
And how does writing web stuff in C compare to things like Java or Python?
>fun C
and then that C programmer is dropped into C++ land (because there are no C jobs anymore), calls a function in the "do something" space that throws an exception and he ends up never getting to fclose(fp) and now has a resource leak.

when will the C meme end?
K&R, alternatively Expert C.

It's extremely easy to keep your head above water at AB. You're starting at one of the most generous trackers on the scene.

All 1080p torrents are freeleech, meaning they don't count against your ratio. Snatch a bunch of those for shows you've always wanted to watch and leave them seeding. You'll get a steady trickle of upload. Once every month or so the freeleech pool fills up with user donations and the entire site becomes freeleech for 48 hours. That's when you'll get a lot of your upload. Download popular old series that never got a BD release, like Monster and Rurouni Kenshin. Download VNs and 720p releases of long-running shows to save yourself some HDD space.

You can effectively keep an infinite ratio if you're patient.

Do you immediately lose all respect and dismiss any tech related opinions from someone when you notice they're an Appletard?

Yes I hate macfags so much, yesterday one came up to me with his stupid macbook bag and started to say something so I screeched as loudly as I could while pummeling my head with alternating hands to drown him out until he left. Fucking macfags
Yes, but I also loose respect for people who blindly hate apple too. There are just tons of people who don't know shit who hate it just because they've been told to by some guy on Reddit or some shit.
Of course not.

Hey /g/ I need to buy a laptop for my university classes. It will serve as my main machine so it has to be at least decently powerful. The main things In looking for are portability, battery life and a touchscreen would be a plus. Right now I'm choosing between a MacBook pro or surface pro but I heard bad things about them so I'm not sure now.
