I think it might be man. You're at 5k+ rep points. I'm at 3.5k I think, and I'm handing out around 70.

The vBulletin rep system is pretty well-designed to promote inflations (or discourage the popular people from repping, depending on how you want to look at it).

Some forums have rep-parties just to see who can get teh most rep, others have implemented 'dial-a-rep' hacks so that one can specify exactly how much rep to add (or subtract) up to their personal limit.

I seem to recall one forum that set a specific number for rep, regardless of one's personal count. That might be the best way without hacking the plugin.

Meh. Rep is not really a big deal.

I'm fairly sure I give out 70 at a time.. there is probably an upper limit, but I don't know what it is.

Hey guys, I know this is a bit weird, but I've never really gotten into Linux and I'm looking to get a bit into it. Is there any fairly intuitive distro of Linux out there? Ideal for Linux newbies, that is. Thanks.

I was pretty happy. It would have been wayyyyy too much work parting out on eBay, and I had priced it out at around $225, so only taking about a $50 hit on being able to sell it all in one fell swoop was fine with me. For something I never use anymore, I was happy. In conjunction with selling my PS2 a while back (about 50 games, steering wheel, a few controllers, and guitar hero) for $250, I've been bringing in some much needed cash. Now...just need to sell my NES. I'm surprised no one bit on it for $80 at my garage sale. I don't think anyone knew how rare a few of the games were I have with it. I have Kirby's Adventures, which goes for $20-30 by itself. So I guess I'll be parting that bad boy out on eBay soon.

To be honest, I'm not too experience other than using bootable copies to test various machines, at times. All I can tell you is that Gnome kernels (Like Ubuntu) are most similar to "Macs" and KDE kernels (like Kubuntu) are more similar to a Windows style OS. I've heard good and bad about both. I mainly just load up my Kubuntu disc when needed. I have tried Sabayon (back in the days of Vista), and I thought that Fedora was too confusing for me. Try this and see if it's any help.

I wish Chromium OS was ready to roll on local disk instead of having to be booted from Flash or in a VM. -.-
I don't want to buy a ChromeBook.

Don't know much about it. Is it supposed to end up being able to boot from a local disk?

It is, but I haven't yet found a distro for it. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough. All the versions I've found are VM-bound or USB bootable ISO's.
