The lesser of two evils: The Game!

03 January 2017 - 03:12 AM

Hi! Welcome to the Lesser of Two Evils: The Game!

This is a little forum game, much like the three-word game and word association game.


Game: Offer a choice to the next poster. The next poster has to choose one of the two choices. He or she is free to elaborate as to why he or she chose one option over the alternative, but it is not a necessity. After choosing an option, a new entry has to be formed so that the next poster has a choice to make as well!


Rules: A choice may never target somebody personally, or be written in such manner that one can derive who it is about. This game shall never be personal towards anybody. Other than that, everything goes! The most lonesome, grotesque, unethical or fantastic choices are all fair game!

Commenting on somebody's optional explanation is not allowed; this would cause the thread to unravel.



Player 1: Would you rather live in utmost poverty with your loved one or live in exceeding wealth with your favourite pet?

Player 2: Live in poverty with my loved one (, because .. .... ..). If you had to do one of two things, would you rather: drink a gallon of sea water or eat 20 hamburgers? Note: they are hamburgers from the supermarket, not the edible ones from Burger King.




I'll start off with one of the more recent developments.

If you had to invite one of the two to your home for a period of 4 years, would you rather invite Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton?


/edit: Added the rule about commenting

So much more than the one act he became famous with

I personally believe Mr Bean is one of his worst performances. Not because it's bad, but because his every other sketch, role or performance was that good.


Inquiry on expectations of non-member moderating

11 December 2016 - 01:51 AM



Based on the latest developments in DFighter's application, I have a question. It's short and simple.


In presence of F|A members of any level (or some after a certain point of cut-off?), what remains of the job done by server regulars and clan friends? I ask this, because DFighter's application reminds me of something I read in a distant past about how moderating should only be done in absence of members, as it's a member task when present. However, I personally feel I can lighten the job for members - I'm sure they have enough on their plate - by trying to address issues in the server in the interest of peacekeeping. So we can all focus on blowing each other's hat off.


In hope of enlightenment,






/e It's an ET Discussion thread, I suppose I welcome the thoughts of other clients as well! Open-mindedness is a good thing  B)

Finish my Spotify Classic Rock Playlist

Extreme - More Than Words;
The Rolling Stones - Sympathy For The Devil;

Asus K55VD: Random key failure

16 November 2016 - 10:50 AM



Windows 10  64b

i7 2.30 GHz



The laptop has been in use for approximatically 5 years. I've very often had troubles with this laptop.

For this exact same issue, I have already sent the laptop to Support. To the full extent of their letter, this was the introduction, core message and ending of their operation report: "Keyboard replaced". Since apparently they only store them in Korea, it took about 9 weeks for it to be repaired and be returned to me.


The issue is as follows. At complete random times, keys seem to fail. Miraculously, when I press and hold with force onto a broken key, I would get one in. Consequently, once it "connected" again, it works fine. For a minute or two, anyway.

Also, when I would just wait for a minute or two, it sometimes works again.

It's almost always the same keys being out of order; numbers 1 to 4, the letters P, U and I and the Backspace button.

When the numbers are not working, I obviously check if the numpad numbers work; they do not. I feel that this excludes a hardware issue.


It's been a very long ongoing problem now, but it's worsened over the past 2 or 3 weeks. I can't think of a reason.


Solutions I've read up on/tried:

-Update BIOS. Fully done.

-Reinstall keyboard drivers. Tried.

-Reinstall windows. I tried this before the repair. Since I'm in the middle of my thesis, it would be frustrating to try this now.

-Send back to ASUS. The serial number of my laptop is in a book which I lost when I moved 5 or 6 times in a few weeks time. I can't do this anymore.

-Check for hardware issues. Although the keyboard was replaced, the issue persisted after about 1 year of clean playtime.


Information I read up on:

-There does not seem to be information about K55VD having this issue.

-However, recently a notebook of an earlier release reported a similar issue. It turned out to be a problem with the Fn button that is there to enable more functions on the notebook. The owner simply switched it off and everything was fine. This did not help me.

-Some notebooks report similar problems due to a faulty battery. Apparently after taking the battery out the problem was solved. I haven't tried this; obviously without a battery I would find myself with little power to try the keys with :D

-People suggested a corrupted Windows version. It came with the Laptop, though, and I've done no toying in registries or anything of the sort. Any way to check for this?




People who suggest for me to get an external keyboard will be lynched.


Thank you in advance!
