  1. That's a good point, but we are forgetting the topic of this thread; teaching flying spaghetti monsterism in schools.
  2. Yeah, the board came with the processor, Newegg special... but it does what I need it to do, not much room for memory though... A gig of 400 ram is my next upgrade. Then I'll dispose of the Geforce4 Ti4200 64Mb, yeesh!(don't make fun) Oh, and you're absolutely right verran, it came to me just now as I'm sitting at work, I don't know why I never thought about that before, all the time I spend trying to think of ways to make my machine run faster, but soon I'll have a medeocre machine!
  3. I use a Biostar NF325-A7 mobo and AMD64 3700+. Let's just say those are my first upgrades in years, hence the ancient memory.
  4. BASTARDS! Would it be beneficial for me to just run my 333 512Mb and remove my 266 128Mb memory, for games? Until I get new memory of course. Or is the speed not that much of a difference?
  5. Is it true that memory on an AMD system will only run as fast as the slowest memory speed? For example, I have a stick of 266 and a stick of 333, will both only run at 266 speed?
  6. If you do just call Canadian Bacon "bacon", then do you call bacon as Americans know bacon "American Bacon?"
  7. I think MINI now falls in the Chrysler group. the US version carries a Chrysler engine I think. Either that or it's owned by GM.
  8. I think you may be on to something Lo. It makes an irate clicking noise when I put a cd in it. And it's about three years old.
  9. That's what i did and it did the same thing. Oh, and the DVD drive is set as master and the CD is set as slave.
  10. Okay, I just upgraded my mobo about two weeks ago. I had just my DVD drive installed as drive "F" for the past two weeks. Moving ahead, I put in a new psu and installed my old CD read only drive. Both drives on one IDE ribbon. I've checked the BIOS setup and uninstalled and reinstalled both drives in device manager. System detects both drives, HOWEVER :angry2:, the DVD is installed as a CD drive as drive"F", and the CD drive is recognized as a DVD drive as drive "G". WTF!!! The DVD drive still burns dvds, but the cd drive doesn't even read a music cd. Any suggestions?
  11. But this is the fundamental part of our republic and analytical thought, this is how we spread ideas, whether we like them or not.
  12. So how do we keep people from becoming separratists or terrorists, by fighting against them?
  13. Lessen what attacks Lo? Exactly what attacks on US soil are we lessening?
  14. We can't defeat terrorism, there will always be terrorism or terrorists or political extremeists or whatever you want to call them.
  15. Hit the nail on the head! That sums up my feelings on the Iraq War. Thanks Verran!
  16. you're right, they need more votes. But seriously, if someone wanted to carry out a terrorist attack on this country I think it would be quite easy. I mean, what do we have to compare the terrorist threat to? In this country a terrorist attack seems to happen about every ten years. It's not like the government is now preventing car bombings in the US happening everyday, there will continue to be large scale attacks over time. When the time is right, there will be another attack. I honestly believe that I am no safer now than I ever was. If tons (literally) of marijuana can be smuggled into this country, I'm pretty sure explosives and terrorists can be too.
  17. It's the nature of the beast man! I would be considered extremely liberal, pro-choice, anti iraq war and don't get me started on that ol' Walker Bush guy, I just hate that everything is either one or the other. I don't like the republican party, but I don't think the democratic party is any better, I don't support the two party system in general. I guess i'm more socialist than anything. Oh, and I didn't vote for either party last time (not that it would matter being that I live in Texas) because I would like to have more than two candidates to choose from.
  18. We should stop calling democrats "liberals." Lo, as a fellow texan, well, I wasn't born here but I live here, we need to look at the facts. There is a difference between liberals and democrats, however there can be liberal democrats. See, democrats generally do nothing other than complain. Liberals, on the other hand, complain but also think that everyone is their friend except for conservatives and anyting capitalistic in nature. A liberal democrat is a combination of the two, they generally complain about an issue, do nothing about it, then go and bash the conservative party with their other democrat liberal buddies while the republican party spanks them on capital hill. PS: You like disturbing the hive don't you Lo? B:) Me too, but from the opposite end.
  19. I don't know if you would be interested in this. I'm an environmental scientist and something that is really big in this industry now is auto CAD. When we publish reports we have to include figures and maps which are custom made, the big offices even use CAD animations to make arguments in court cases. It seems kinda cool. I know in this industry any computer skill is valuable, I spend a lot of time working out the problems with our office network. I suggest looking into it, I work in a business office setting and this is already a big industry and it will get bigger in the future (job security). I would go with four year university. You will not regret it. Here is the site for my company if you are interested.
  20. You have a good argument, cybergrunt. But in creationism of any kind it is taught that the world was created by a higher power, something or someone had to create it right? So isn't that belief fundamentally religious?
