  1. Did I tell you all that I'm gonna be a dad? Jenny is expecting in November :-) There must be something in the water here, seems like half the female population here with the military are pregnant... my wife included...
  2. no, they're 120GB Maxtors but they're SATA, lol
  3. I fold for DIY Got the beta running on my wifes laptop right now...
  4. I definitely will, just let me know the number to fold for :-)
  5. I tend to do the same, OS and programs/games on one, pagefile and storage on the other. I tend to move "My Documents" to the other drive as well. If my drives aren't any good (I'm procrastinating finding out...) I'll be re-working my setup too ^^
  6. Yeah, I don't think they'd have let me keep them in Basic Training...
  7. This Lian-Li PC-G70 would eat a triple rad for breakfast, using a dremel for a fork
  8. wouldn't be those fans I traded you a while back would they? those were great! some of that stereo stuff is going in my S14 here pretty soon... along with this SFF computer and my 10" touchscreen :-) sorry for the hi-jack slick
  9. did you put your components back to stock and see if you had issues? GDubbR did you try using just 2 sticks of RAM? Hiper PSU is possibly a problem... and GDubb, your PSU while not bad, might be under powered with the 8800 in there. random errors that can't be pinpointed usually boil down to a bad, underpowered or just plain cheap PSU.
  10. lol, I had an AEG too, it was a beast... but it was 240v so I left it in Germany... [email protected]
  11. Are your sticks of RAM in the slots closest to the CPU? that's known to cause low benchmarks in Sandra (google search turned this up) The large memory pages problem seems unsolved in many threads, and there's mention that it's a bug with Sandra and Vista...
  12. as soon as I get my rig back up, I'll be pumping out some wu's from over here in Japan I'm not even gonna bother on this laptop ^^
  13. Oh, I forgot to mention that $54 for 100/whatever comes with VOIP phone as well... not bad rates either.... ~5 yen a minute to the states, ~6 yen to Germany and england... don't call anywhere else so I don't know... it's running slower today, and this is what I get... when they first hooked it up it pegged the little speedometer to the top on upload and download...
  14. The 100 MBit for $35 is a little exaggeration, NTT charges $54 for the fiber line, called BFLET and if you don't read kanji, or speak Japanese, it's useless without paying another $20+ for an ISP that translates things for you... at least thats how it is here on Okinawa Island, and from what I can see at the NTT website for the rest of Japan. but still, it's a lot better than whats avail for a reasonable price stateside.
  15. techno, my suggestion was from a monty python skit... I don't know what most of that is either... you could just eat it straight out of the can and save all the trouble
  16. you could try Lobster Thermidor aux crevettes with a mornay sauce served in a provencale manner with shallots and aubergines garnished with truffle pate, brandy and a fried egg on top and spam Spam!

  17. So, I was mega careful when I left Germany in October to pack my computer up myself, I dis-assembled it, put everything in it's own padded box, and set it aside from the rest of my household goods ( to be shipped as "pro-items" so they didn't go against my weight allowance, which they did anyway, movers didn't mark it...) I was extra careful with my 6 hard drives, which were wrapped in foam, boxed, wrapped in foam again and boxed again. Nice and cozy and safe. While most of my stuff went into plastic rubbermaid bins, my computer stuff didn't because it was boxed up already... I got my household goods this week, and most of the boxes were wet. Having been almost 6 months since I've seen any of it, I wasn't worried because I knew it was all in rubbermaid bins, that is until I saw this: this is what came out: It looked like they dumped this crate in the water and put it back on the truck and let it sit... thank god all my clothes and most of my computer gear was in plastic bins... and somehow the rest of the computer boxes made it with just a little surface moisture, but all plastic bins were wrapped in cardboard, and it was all soaked and moldy... The carpeted boxes in the background are my 6x9 boxes, which I'm not too worried about, since they sound like butt in the boxes, they're better free-air. That is if the speakers aren't damaged... Why did all the junk I have make it here ok and the one thing that is truly irreplaceable get damaged? so much for safeguarding my data with a RAID array... I get full replacement value for all the damaged items, but I can't replace all that data... who knows, maybe if I give it a week to dry out I'll only have lost one drive and I can re-build my array...
  18. 5-1/4"Sunbeam Rheobus, as suggested by A_G and some others. I also used a vantec nexus 3-1/2" controller, both work wery well. If you get the right vantec, the voltage doesn't jump as some say it does, and it won't make noise. you'd probably want to hack the LEDs off the sunbeam though, they're pretty bright.
  19. Isn't the wattage being drawn from the socket going to be different anyway? The rated wattage at the 12/5v DC end is one thing, the watts the psu draws from the socket (AC) is going to be different (lower), it's a different circuit. I may be wrong. Who's testing PSUs? We got something for you to test...
  20. Yeah, we're over here for at least the next three years.It's awesome though... I can afford 100M Fiber internet here cool, glad you got ahold of some.
  21. Hope my SATA 120s don't follow suit... I haven't actually seen them since October... been a little busy with Basic and Tech School :-) but I get my household goods at the end of April... and it'll be time for some modding action :-)
  22. Wow! This threads gone WAY off topic... ^ that post is ridiculous and doesn't even get a reply... I want to point something out about the OP... The presidential directive that's linked is from May 07, and is just instructing the different branches of our government to have plans for continuity in an Emergency. There's nothing wrong with that unless you're planning on overthrowing the government when they're distracted with an emergency... The other link, the "military agreement" doesn't order, or suggest that our military act as law enforcement. The agreement allows the use of the other's military resources (money, personnel) to overcome the emergency... they'd be acting under orders of the host country's own leaders... at least that's how I understood the agreement.
  23. smallparts.com sell nylon thumb screws, and regular nylon screws in lengths up to like 4-6 inches... I have a couple hundred lying around in my household goods (but they don't get here until the 28th of April)
  24. that was my favorite CD for a long time! I'll download this when I get my 100 meg Fiber Internet installed in a couple weeks (island living is a little slow sometimes...)
