  1. Always love seeing your latest clocks Graham. (Even though it causes me some major e-penis shrinkage) Keep up the fantastic work!
  2. No, C n Q is NOT enabled in the Bios. Everything is set to deafault except the Sil Image controller and Marvell LAN (Both disabled) Mouse and keyboard are PS2. Still freezes up. Nothing in Event Viewer. Gonna send him a new mouse and keyboard. I'm thinking it has to be one of the programs he has loaded. Aaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhh!
  3. hmm, this is worth checking out - they were PS2, and about 4-5 years old He may have upgraded, I'll need to check. I had him load optimized defaults when we switched RAM, so I doubt that CnQ is enabled. Event viewer is worth a check as well. I'll get back to you experts after I talk with him. Thanks for the input dudesters
  4. It would be great if I was in the same city as the PC but alas and alack, I am not. So I (kinda - sorta) need to tell him what to do or check and then report back to me. Of course he could just turn it off when he is finished using it and then boot up (takes like a minute) when he wants to use it but then he wouldn't be able to bust my ballz No wierd processes and spyware/malware free. Maybe I can guide him through the event viewer. Thanks for the help Your Nateness. Anyone else got an idea?
  5. All hail Marx and Lennon Sorry, I just couldn't resist
  6. I gave my old Opty 165, DFI NF4 rig to my brother-in-law. He leaves it on all the time and it has been freezing up (mouse and keyboard) after 8+ hours. Keyboard and mouse just seem to freeze up and he needs to use the reset button to reboot the PC. It never locks up when he is using it. never reboots or has any other issues. Passed prime for 24 hours when I originally put it together (before he loaded programs including AOL) Windows XP SP3 Runs MemTest for 5 hours+ with both 2 x 512MB Corsair RAM (2-2-2-5) or 2x1024MB GSkill (3-4-4-8) Passes Prime 95 256d for 5 hours at 270 x 9. Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 lapped, OCZ GameXtreme 700, XFX 7800GT, Antec 900 Case. I think I have stopped everything I didn't want to start with Autoruns. Used CCleaner and JV16 to clean files and registry Temps are fine, voltages are low. I am almost positive it is a program he has added (and he loves to try new stuff) I don't want to do a re-install and neither does he (I have done a windows Repair) Can anyone help a brother out with this? Any ideas what could be happening?
  7. fantastic thread. Some very good comments by both sides. An Excellent read.
  8. It's all good then. A++ rating He may prefer sitting "sidesaddle". Makes it easier to grab the Oreos
  9. You're missing the cigarette butts and nasty looking ashtray. Reps for the Doublestuff Oreos!
  10. Very Nice, Krazy. It would put a smile on any geek's face.
  11. Very Nice. Seems to run very fast.
  12. Norm McDonald "I've never seen so many dead hookers in my life" Creepy Looking dude in crowd "Lord knows I have" Dirty Work - starring Norm McDonald and Artie Lange 500 photos and three cameras later I am convinced there is no way I can get a decent picture of the CCFLs lit up and pulsing. If any of the sections is NOT lit, the camera seems to spread light from the lit sections over the unlit section. Looks awesome in person, just can't seem to get a decent picture of the RadoBase in action. And the pictures here really do a lousy job of showing off rado's handiwork. I think we went a tad overboard with the CCFLs in the front and rear of the base. When I initially hooked up the bases I blew a hole in the living room wall and opened up some sort of trans-dimensional vortex. I'm still finishing the SR-2 paint job. Sorry this is taking so long to complete but I've been on the road quite a bit lately and when I get home there are a couple of bars and strip clubs that need my support in these tough economic times. (soundx98 - helping unwed mothers, one lap dance at a time) I took these shots with the front CCFLs disconnected. Each section monitors different voltages/temperatures through the Matrix Orbital and Everest and it is "oh so frikken' kewl" when each section starts flashing, pulsing, strobing, etc. You can see the Matrix Orbital display scrolling the Everest info in different pictures. Doctor Evil unpacking RadoBases at work VVV Lookin' to build a special desk that can properly show off the twin towers And I still want to mess with the lighting a bit. Both rigs are running at 4.25 GHz (500x8.5) Just picked up a DFI LP UT P35 mobo so now I have all i need for a 3rd rig except the processor. I think I'll try an E8500 this go around. P.S. The pictures were taken during the day so you can imagine what the look like at night. BRIGHT!
  13. A Priest and a Rabbi A priest and a rabbi were sitting next to each other on an airplane. After a while, the priest turned to the rabbi and asked, 'Is it still a requirement of your faith that you not eat pork?' The rabbi responded, 'Yes, that is still one of our laws.' The priest then asked, 'Have you ever eaten pork?' To which the rab bi replied, 'Yes, on one occasion I did succumb to temptation And tasted a ham sandwich.' The priest nodded in understanding and went on with his reading. A while later, the rabbi spoke up and asked the priest, 'Father, is it still a Requirement of your church that you remain celibate?' The priest replied, 'Yes, that is still very much a part of our faith.' The rabbi then asked him, 'Father, have you ever fallen to the temptations of the flesh?' The priest replied, 'Yes, rabbi, on one occasion I was weak and broke with my Faith.' The rabbi nodded understandingly and remained silent, thinking, for about five Minutes. Finally, the rabbi said, 'Beats the . out of a ham sandwich, doesn't it?
  14. Nice work Centy! We appreciate the updates man. (you crazy brit)
  15. ^^^ Very good. I'll be spamming friends and family with it for a couple of weeks.
  16. Be great if someone with Mod powers could edit and update the first post. This is a really useful thread.
  17. No working plug-in for nVidia/Vista with MBM5, so it's just not gonna happen. You could try dual booting XP and Vista. Use XP for games and normal usage and Vista for sending error reports Sorry I couldn't help ya.
  18. No offense, but I doubt either of you have raised teenagers Everyone seems to blame the parent's for failing. What it really shows is that 5 minutes of stupidity can change your life forever. Most crimes are committed under the influence of drugs or alcohol. (You know those biatches were high when it went down). Fact is, behavior like this comes from a lot of factors; school, peer group, mental disorders, etc., but primarily from the girls themselves. (I do feel sorry for the dudes that thought they were "fit") I am sure their parents/relatives are totally appalled by their actions as well. This certainly isn't going to help the family members' lives. And as far as the comments go; their rape, sodomy, or killing isn't going to make the world a better place at all.
  19. Just for clarity on the sales tax deal Brick and Mortar stores don't pay the state sales tax when they ship goods out of state. If they have a physical location in the state they are required to pay taxes to the state for goods sold at retail (end user) within the state. Sales to Businesses that have a valid sales tax number do not pay the tax and once they re-sell them to the consumer the seller (business) is responsible for the tax. So it is "reasonably" fair Just sucks if you are in New York. But then it does anyway
