Sorry about the 2 hours of downtime

19 October 2014 - 01:42 AM

We had about two hours of downtime. The reason we have so far is a misconfiguration on our web-host's side. They've changed the configuration and we're back online as a result. We'll be chasing this up to figure out what caused it and so it doesn't happen again.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Take a few minutes to secure your computer and RuneScape account today and you'll save yourself a lot of grief (imagine if your account gets hacked or taken advantage of tomorrow!)

Read my updated Security Guidelines.

Don't delay this! Get the peace of mind now and avoid getting hacked.

Recommend A Laptop For Me

02 October 2014 - 09:45 AM

I bought my laptop in 2010 and I've used in heavily and it shows (loads of little chips and scuffs... the touchpad is discolored, etc.)  It came with Windows 7 and I upgraded to 8.1 a while back. Bad decision because it's been slower since.

Anyways, I'm looking to buy a new laptop within the next few months:
  • Preferably < $1000
  • Fastest CPU
  • Huge RAM. (I leave at least 15 tabs in Chrome open at all times, a few powerpoints, word, several folders, and 3 or 4 other apps)
  • Windows.
  • 13-inch is my favorite size. (I'd rather go smaller than 13-inch, instead of 15-inch, if I had to pick)
  • Graphics is moderately important to me, but I can live without the best.
  • 802.11ac, HDMI, USB 3.0, LAN port.
  • Preferably SD slot and gigabit LAN.
  • I appreciate a light and cool-running machine. (I've had an HP Pavilion before which weighed a ton, sounded like a Boeing 747 taking off, and got so hot it should have been classified as a heater that also computes).
  • Looks aren't important to me. The laptop can look like a VCR from 1989 and I'd be okay with it. Of course, I'm not against good looks though.
  • Optical drive not necessary (can't even remember the last time I had to use it!)
  • I'm not gonna mention that I like decent battery life because every time I've been told a laptop can last "up to 9 hours" it dies within 2 hours when I actually use it.
Please recommend.
