  20. Hey dude know it has been a long time since you made the vid but then i try to warp and then i’m done i’m getting some white zones where the warp has been any idea why?

  21. Those parts of the system that you can hit with a hammer (not advised) are called hardware; those program instructions that you can only curse at are called software. Thanks for you sharing..
