  1. Abbott & Costello




    ABBOTT: Super Duper computer store. Can I help you?


    COSTELLO: Thanks. I'm setting up an office in my den and I'm thinkingabout buying a computer.


    ABBOTT: Mac?


    COSTELLO: No, the name's Lou.


    ABBOTT: Your computer?


    COSTELLO: I don't own a computer. I want to buy one.


    ABBOTT: Mac?


    COSTELLO: I told you, my name's Lou.


    ABBOTT: What about Windows?


    COSTELLO: Why? Will it get stuffy in here?


    ABBOTT: Do you want a computer with Windows?


    COSTELLO: I don't know. What will I see when I look at the windows?


    ABBOTT: Wallpaper.


    COSTELLO: Never mind the windows. I need a computer and software.


    ABBOTT: Software for Windows?


    COSTELLO: No. On the computer! I need something I can use to writeproposals, track expenses and run my business. What do you have?


    ABBOTT: Office.


    COSTELLO: Yeah, for my office. Can you recommend anything?


    ABBOTT: I just did.


    COSTELLO: You just did what?


    ABBOTT: Recommend something.


    COSTELLO: You recommended something?


    ABBOTT: Yes.


    COSTELLO: For my office?


    ABBOTT: Yes.


    COSTELLO: OK, what did you recommend for my office?


    ABBOTT: Office.


    COSTELLO: Yes, for my office!


    ABBOTT: I recommend Office with Windows.


    COSTELLO: I already have an office with windows! OK, let's just say I'm sitting at my computer andI want to type a proposal. What do I need?


    ABBOTT: Word.


    COSTELLO: What word?


    ABBOTT: Word in Office.


    COSTELLO: The only word in office is office.


    ABBOTT: The Word in Office for Windows.


    COSTELLO: Which word in office for windows?


    ABBOTT: The Word you get when you click the blue "W".


    COSTELLO: I'm going to click your blue "w" if you don't start with some straight answers. OK, forgetthat. Can I watch movies on the Internet?


    ABBOTT: Yes, you want Real One.


    COSTELLO: Maybe a real one, maybe a cartoon. What I watch is none ofyour business. Just tell me what I need!


    ABBOTT: Real One.


    COSTELLO: If it's a long movie, I also want to watch reels 2, 3 and 4. Can I watch them?


    ABBOTT: Of course.


    COSTELLO: Great! With what?


    ABBOTT: Real One.


    COSTELLO: OK, I'm at my computer and I want to watch a movie. Whatdo I do?


    ABBOTT: You click the blue "1".


    COSTELLO: I click the blue one what?


    ABBOTT: The blue "1".


    COSTELLO: Is that different from the blue w?


    ABBOTT: The blue "1" is Real One and the blue "W" is Word.


    COSTELLO: What word?


    ABBOTT: The Word in Office for Windows.


    COSTELLO: But there are three words in "office for windows"!


    ABBOTT: No, just one. But it's the most popular Word in the world.


    COSTELLO: It is?


    ABBOTT: Yes, but to be fair, there aren't many other Words left. Itpretty much wiped out all the other Words out there.


    COSTELLO: And that word is real one?


    ABBOTT: Real One has nothing to do with Word. Real One isn't evenpart of Office.


    COSTELLO: STOP! Don't start that again. What about financialbookkeeping? You have anything I can track my money with?


    ABBOTT: Money.


    COSTELLO: That's right. What do you have?


    ABBOTT: Money.


    COSTELLO: I need money to track my money?


    ABBOTT: It comes bundled with your computer.


    COSTELLO: What's bundled with my computer?


    ABBOTT: Money.


    COSTELLO: Money comes with my computer?


    ABBOTT: Yes. No extra charge.


    COSTELLO: I get a bundle of money with my computer? How much?


    ABBOTT: One copy.


    COSTELLO: Isn't it illegal to copy money?


    ABBOTT: Microsoft gave us a license to copy Money.


    COSTELLO: They can give you a license to copy money?


    ABBOTT: Why not? THEY OWN IT!


    (A few days later...)


    ABBOTT: Super Duper computer store. Can I help you?


    COSTELLO: How do I turn my computer off?


    ABBOTT: Click on "START".

  2. Remember, this is for in the home, so a 12 volt car amp is not going to work. ;)


    EDIT:  This is more towards what he wants I think: http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showdetl.cf...tnumber=300-806


    500 watts rms at 4 ohms, perfect for even the most power hungry car audio subs.  Now he just needs to get back to us on the sub he's thinking about using so we can model him up a box. :P


    EDIT AGAIN:  I don't think he's going to want PA speakers, they don't play down low enough for a lot of music, and especially not low enough for movies/games.  I do think this guy would be better off with a decent 2 channel amp and a set of towers though. :)



    thats a mono block amp, he wants something to power his 2 bose speakers and the sub

    these are not guitar PAs, they are for studio/club invironments and DJs so they will play the lowest of the lows and the highest of the highs at screaming loud volumes

  3. actually thats the same adapter that i already found, thats the right interface


    i am not trying to just stick a cheap cd rom into a case

    im modding a macintosh se/30 with a slot load dvdrw slim drive made by panasonic that will fit perfectly because there is absolutely no room to work with in this project

    it will be mounted where the floppy drive was with some minor trimming

    the drive itself runs around $140 but it is a slot load which is pretty cool

    no tray no excess bulk and its a dvd burner unlike the pioneer slot load dvd rom which can only read not write

  4. some tv's look as good as vga using a composite video input while playing dvd's and some look a LOT worse... like a Sony/Hitachi tv usually looks very good and some cheapy rubbish tv with some name no-one's ever heard of (or has a reputation for being crap, e.g. Goodmans, Bush, Alba, etc in the UK) will look like a pile of crap


    so it could just be the tv, tried it on another tv?



    my tv is an older but perfect working RCA (single yellow component input only)

    i also tried it on a brand new (2004) Samsung 32" flat tube (hooked up s-video directly, also tried the yellow component)


    both were pretty fuzzy looking to the point where my eyes hurt trying to browse about windows


    the output was on TV in the ati catalyst panel


    i tried different resolution and refresh settings with no avail


    so, its either get a fancy vga to tv converter box, or try to find a used 30" crt

  5. before reformatting, check and see if theres any updates available for your games


    i had a crashing problem running ut'04, updated, no more crashes!


    does it only crash when gaming?


    are you running at a high resolution when it crashes


    lower the resolution to 800x600 and play the game at that

    see if it affects when it crashes


    could be a heat buildup problem


    try installing a modified video driver http://www.3dchipset.com

  6. i want to play dvds on my 25"tv and my ati 9700 pro gives me a crappy picture

    (really fuzzy, blurry, cant see anything w/o hurting my eyes)

    is there any recommendations on the most clear video card for tv use?


    my tv only has a component rca input for video

    so no s-video, vga, mpeg, compatability


    just a good clean picture is what im after


    let me know your experiences with running a tv from your card
