Only buy from Dell?

Jo, there are plenty of other options out there.

Asus has the lowest 3 year hardware failure rates in laptops of ANY company, including apple. I would highly suggest picking up an ASUS with the appropriate specs.

It’s tough not to take design criticism personally, even for the most seasoned veterans, but always keep in mind the reviewers just want to help you get sales in the end =)

HostGator is pretty good. BlueHost also seems quite popular.

Also something to note – the basic plans for GoDaddy are pretty slow, while their higher end options offer a higher priority in bandwidth, and as such, your website should load quicker. Just in case you don’t want to deal with switching, it’s an option.

It’s also stunningly secure and near impossible to track.
Not agree at all. Nowadays BitCoins are like a huge world Casino, kind of rules, hidden faces behind. At least on Casinos rules are clear, although you still don’t know who you are playing with; so, better invest on BlackJack.

There is nothing hidden about bitcoins. Do your research.

Yesterday was a wonderful time to buy, prices will go back up. Already increased strong overnight.

Bitcoin is a digital currency, and therefore it isn’t centrally controlled by any government. People deal in bitcoin because they don’t trust the governments controlling all currency. It’s also stunningly secure and near impossible to track.

I just hit 50 sales and wanted to send a quick thank you to the Envato community, and to everyone who has purchased something.

Here is to many, many more sales in the future! =)

I tend to prefer illustrator as I greatly prefer laying out type in illustrator as opposed to photoshop, but either one would do a fine job.

As said above, the look you’re trying to achieve will really determine what program you use. If you want crisp clean lines and text, use illustrator, if you want a more weathered or complex photo like look, use photoshop.

Intel just earns more money by simply unlocking the multiplier. That’s business, they get people to pay more for essentially the same product. That does not make it smarter to overclock it. Intel does not give any warranty or whatsoever if you overclock their processors. If you feel like you have to, only because you can, then do it. The pure fact of getting Blue Screens while working would be enough of an argument for me to not do it in a working environment.

Blue screens are not at all typical for a properly overclocked machine.

K series processors have a TON of space left over to overclock, so if it is done right, it’s perfectly reasonable to do so. The K series processors are made for the specific purpose of being overclocked.

What are your temps looking like?

Haswell chips are known not to be overtly overclocking friendly past 4.4 and they also tend to run really hot in comparison to Ivy and Sandy bridge.

I would suggest clocking down to 4.4 and lowering your voltage as much as possible for a stable clock.

Also consider upping your load line calibration to very high or extreme if you haven’t already. Also as was already suggested, be sure to run a prime 95 test for a good 8 hours to make sure your computer is stable and not getting too hot.
