    What Is Your Iq?

    Oh big deal, people don't have to post in this thread or read it if they don't want to. I took one in 3rd grade and got 160, and I took one in 10th grade and got 147. I tend to trust the latter more.

    Electrical Or Computer Engineering

    As an Electrical Engineer, you have a much broader selection of career choice. You could go into electronic design, or you could go into large-scale power distribution. You can go into control systems, like designing controllers for factory automation, or designing any kind of control for any product. You could go into communications, another form of electronic design mixed in with some electromagnetic concepts like transmission and antennae and wave theory. Signal processing is another good field (can also relate to CompE pretty well) where you manipulate and control analog, discrete-time, or digital signals. I'm going for my B.S.E.E (3 semesters left counting this one) and I'm thinking I'm going to go into either signal processing or control systems.

    How Do You Do Homework?

    I do homework at my desk, which has my computer at it. So as you can imagine, I get very easily distracted by the IRC channel, IM programs, music, internet, games, etc. All of you people that say you don't do homework suck. If I didn't do my homework, I'd be failing every single class. Of course I got away with it in high school, but a B.S.E.E. is an entirely different story.

    Child Discipline

    Yeah when I was a kid I got disciplined with a belt to the backside if I did something really bad. Other than that just a typical spanking with a hand or a hit across the forehead, nothing overly powerful. I think doing those kinds of things gets your point across much better than just verbally telling them. Again, like it's been said many many times already, there's a difference between discipline and abuse...

    Kirk Or Picard?

    Hah! Absolute Zero occurs at -273.15 C, which is the temperature in which all particles would cease to move. Therefore -293 C is unattainable.

    New Monitor Under 300 Or Close To It

    Well I got my monitor yesterday. Thankfully no dead pixels. It takes a long time to calibrate the colors, so if you do get it, spend a lot of time tweaking. The one flaw that I see from it is that the backlight leaks out at the top and bottom of the panel. Other people had been having problems with this as well. I emailed samsung about it, not sure if it's something that can be fixed through an RMA or what not. Although I am nervous about RMAing since I'll have to worry about dead pixels again. Other than the backlight problem, it's fabulous.

    Trying To Decide On A New Monitor

    Anyone Own A Sennheiser Headset?

    No they do not completely cover your ear. Also, that link is a bit misleading, since it states that the headphones are noise cancelling, when in fact just the microphone has that technology. I had a pair of those for about 6 months before the volume control module got stuck underneath my chair leg, which then got smashed to pieces.
