      My computer is using 15.5 GB of 16 GB RAM, and around 65% of my processor (which is an i7...)... only things I have open are some Chrome tabs, a few Minecrafts, and word and vlc.... lol

        Are you saying Chrome took 5 seconds to close? I mean, considering that many tabs being open and that much RAM being used, that doesn't actually surprise me.

        Yup, but at that point only 4ish GB of RAM was used. Normally it takes less than a second to close.

        I use a different amount of RAM depending on how many MC tabs I need open... since I only have 8gb on my system i have it set so that if I need one open it uses 6gb each, 2 open uses 3gb each, 3 uses 2gb each and 4+ uses 1gb each. I use the remaining RAM for Discord and YouTube. I usually only have 4 tabs open at once: http://prntscr.com/j581rp

        I've never heard of that. Sounds interesting, though. Should I look it up, or could you tell us a bit about it? :P

        Simply put, its pretending you (= a group of some people) are the United Nations, and you discuss a currently ongoing issue like they do. :)

      For crying out loud. I spent my gap hour to finish text for a presentation for tomorrow, then when I come home, the file suddenly disappears from my usb stick... now I have to do it all over again... :/

        Luckily it wasn't a big assignment, and the information could be found easily, so it didn't take too long to remake, but still frustrating. :P

      So, form results show that either you voted twice or someone voted for you. Either way, I deleted both responses, so if you could vote again, that would be lovely :)

        Honestly not sure which it is - I keep forgetting whether I've voted or not... >.< that vote from earlier today was definitely me, though. Thanks for letting me know, I've voted again. :)

      My phone doesn't want to turn suddenly. Sigh. EDIT: there we go, fixed it. It ran out of battery, and for no reason didn't want to charge properly. Oh well.

      You IB diploma? I just did 2 certificates for Bus Man and Eco, although I am “taking 3/4” of the base courses. What did you choose?

        Yup - I'm doing IB English (ealls). The rest of my subjects follow the Dutch VWO (highest level) program. Only the international department of my school does other subjects via the IB program. :)

      So I have to do this super important assignment for English. The main task has to be 800-1000 words long. Mine is 999 words. I win at life. - EDIT: after fixing some things, it went up to 1003, and then I got it down to 1000, so now it's perfect! :D

        Oh. Don't try to hide words in white, constrict margins, change font type/size, make footnotes superbig if that's applicable to what you're doing. Those are very cheap (and old!) tricks everyone knows about and know how to check for.

        I had a few people try that on papers I graded in grad school!

        Just go about it honestly and get someone really good with grammar checking to help you consolidate if you need it. :)

        Hehe, nah, don't worry, I didn't use any weird tricks to change anything. :P I believe I've only done that once, and it was only changing the spaces and dots from size 12 to 12.5 or something (and it wasn't an important thing, I believe it was like 5+ years ago)... :P

        The rationale for this task had to be 200-300 words... it was 298, but then I looked for somewhere I could add 2 more words, found somewhere, and tadaa, 300 words exactly. ;)

        Rome was more than amazing! :D
        I arrived back home just after midnight on Sunday (March 18). :) (which was the "worst part" of the trip; having to return. :P)

        I actually really liked it, haha. :P I was glad we finally turned home. But many others weren't. ;) The trip back was also nice; on the final bus trip I had some fun conversation with Lanata. :)

        Of course, the trip back home was also nice, but I personally could've stayed at least another month without getting bored. ;)

        No, but since roaming costs for mobile data in Europe were removed, I can now freely use it whenever I want. :D It was great for helping us out with taking the bus, this way we didn't have to walk nearly as much. :D
