Sandy Hook Killer, Adam Lanza Kept Score Sheet for Massacres

It won’t help the progress of the government in making the ownership of guns illegal in the U.S…… so this story will not be plastered everywhere by the media.  It’s a surprise that the NY Daily News published it at all.

Adam Lanza had a seven foot by four foot  spreadsheet showing the various mass killings in the U.S., with the number of kills and various details about locations, weapons,  environments, etc.

This report, in 9 point font,  required a special printer to produce, and contained the names of about 500 people.

The Connecticut police seem to view this as a sort of score sheet, and believe that Adam Lanza wanted to place himself at the top of that list, and that he picked the Sandy Hook Elementary school as an easy, target rich environment.

Suicide after the shooting was seen as the gamer’s way to avoid being killed by police, and losing all his points.

Acer Made Her Do It !!!

Pharm readers might have been wondering about the decline in posts Down on the Pharm. The computer hard drive had been trying to die for months, and it finally did. Before it died, your friendly Pharmer (on Nov 1, 2012)  purchased an Acer prebuilt computer from New Egg. It appeared to be a good buy, with plenty of speed for office use, and lots of memory. However………. Pharmer’s luck with computers ran out. In short, it appears from all the time spent with tech help, and the need to send it in for “repairs”, that the existing operating system,  (and 2 sets of recovery disks) for this computer, were not configured correctly to work  with the hardware. The Acer was unusable from day 1, and had to be sent out for “repair” for the second time on Dec 29, 2012. This second failure was the final impetus to drive the Pharmer to build her own rig. After some quick business, buying the individual components from Tiger Direct, (not a kit),  it’s up and running,  before the ACER came back from the shop. You can see Pharmer’s first build below.  She has entered new phase of life: Geek-O-Pause!

superfast...... it SCREAMS!!!.... could probably be considered a budget gamer.

Pharmer’s First Build

Acer AM3450-UR30P (PT.SHDP2.001) Desktop PC AMD Quad-Core Processor FX-4100(3.6GHz) 6GB DDR3 1TB HDD Capacity ATI Radeon HD 4250 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

Acer’s Epic Fail

By the way…… Learn which ACER computer NOT to buy. It’s now out of stock at New Egg, but if you’re thinking about getting one of these elsewhere, build your own!

Later there will be some updates and a full description of what went into build number one, which appears to be running Windows 7 Home Premium very well on that solid state drive.
