  1. You mean functionality like when you type Control-S and it saves a document in Word? If not then sorry, I don't know what you're asking. You can do that like this: System.Windows.Forms.MenuItem saveMenuItem = new System.Windows.Forms.MenuItem(); saveMenuItem.Shortcut = System.Windows.Forms.Shortcut.CtrlS;
  2. I think Visual Studio does this for you. What IDE / platform are you using?
  3. Yeah, I use fedora core 5. These links might help for setting things up. http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_core_5_in...tion_notes.html http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_fedora_core_5
  4. Yeah I know... it was mostly a joke. I was playing on what you described. When I think about extremists and terrorists I think that there has to be some reason they act the way they do. It doesn't just come out of nowhere. To me, killing people for what their ancestors did isn't rational, but then again I've never experienced some of the things they have. Personally, I think Bush is an idiot. However I also realize that Iraq / terrorism are complex issues and ones with no real solution. I'm glad I don't have to have the burden he has but then again I didn't run for President.
  5. Why can't everyone on earth just be rational?
  6. I had a 500 dollar bill once. That is probably the most I've carried in cash.
  7. Oh yeah... and you might die too. The only catch.
  8. I have several friends from Qatar and I don't think many people realize how technologically advanced and rich that country is.
  9. I completely agree. There are a lot of things to learn from public education that you wont get if you are home schooled. The people I went to high school with who took all online classes or got their GED on their own time always seems miserable and like the regretted doing so. Also, people who "take a year off" after high school usually don't go to college. When you start working it becomes much harder to go back. I know everyone thinks that it won't happen to them but once you get offered a little more money at work it is hard to leave. When all your friends graduate from college and end up making more you'll probably realize you made a mistake.o I understand not everyone is the same and sme people need to save money. I'm just pointing it out.
  10. Thanks for taking the time to write that up. A 4-5 C drop is definitely worth looking into and the Crutchfield vent was a really good idea.

  12. Pay close attention to how much the fees are though. With $4000 you will probably be ok but once you know the interest rate calculate how much you are going to make the first year. If you end up paying close to that in fees then your money isn't going to grow much at all. There are a lot of people that just put money in an IRA because people told them it was a good idea (i was one of them for a while) and then don't realize that fees are eating all their earnings. You may want to shop around a little bit and find out where the fees are going to be low. With a savings or MM account it wont matter as much but with an IRA account it could because the money is going to be growing for such a long period of time. Also, there are limitations to how much money you can contribute to an IRA account. I don't think you can put more than $4000 a year (for 05 and 06) in or more than you made the previous year. Look here for some clarification. Your bank / financial institution should definitely know this stuff too. Just remember that banks may show you examples of how much your money will grow in 40 years to get you excited but keep in mind that their fees will be taking money from you the whole time. If they show you a projection (you should ask for one if they don't) make sure it includes the fees they charge. Good luck. EDIT: You should definitely try to go meet someone at the bank in person. Putting $4000 dollars away for 40 years is a big deal and you should make sure you feel completely comfortable doing it.
  13. I think I remember seeing that it is around 10% penalty that they would take. Normally a Roth IRA grows tax free but when you take it out early you have to pay so it would depend on your tax bracket. Probably would end up being like 15 - 20% just for taxes. So you could lose anywhere from 20 - 40% of it depending on how rich you are. That is pretty much just a rough guess though, I don't work in the field or anything.
  14. I would just like to say that Vipers are awesome. Well, I suppose desperate chicks are too actually.
  15. Just as a note... if you have $2 million dollars when you retire (or even before) then even if you are only getting 7% interest rate that would be $140,000 a year to live off of. Doesn't sound too bad considering you don't have to do anything That might be overly simplistic as there are taxes and other things to consider. I really don't understand how rich people who have over 2 million ever lose it. Oh wait... greed.
