  1. Read this: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=68695
  2. With the holidays just around the corner my 10 year old daughter has already requested a mp3 player. Can anyone suggest a player in the 512 to 1 gig range that will be durable & inexpensive?
  3. I know Tagan has a good rep in the UK but you are running a lot of hardware. Can you try another PSU?
  4. Anyone know where I can find an external laptop HD enclosure? I've had a brand new HD given to me that I'd like to use.
  5. Obviously the 1 ton diesels are expensive. Chevy has added 2 grand to '07 diesels because of the new fuel (sulphur-less). The Titan tows more than them all (except the diesels). There aren't very many '06 Chevy leftovers around the NE. 15 grand more than gas-powered trucks is too much for me to swing. And dealers aren't discounting them.

    LOL No. The great State of NY (sarcasm filters shouldn't block this amount) decided that it's Corrections Officers didn't need any raises for the last 4 years. Union negotiated & won (thru arbitration) raises that were retroactive for those 4 years. Paid in 2 lump sums (and NY taxed the hell out of it). My present truck was supposed to be the last one (I have the 25 years needed to retire but have now decided to work another 5). Buying a truck now will have it paid off within that time (no payment when retired!) whereas my Chevy would need to be replaced & thus a new payment. The TV was flat out my gift to myself (since DFI hasn't released the new Conroe board).
  7. I'm in NY. Adirondacks. 1/2 hour from Lake Placid. How is the reputation of MMM?

    Another Update: The Westinghouse I chose is awesome. Couldn't be happier. Just need more HD channels & a HD-DVD. Any ideas on how to get the wife away from it so I can enjoy it?
  9. Ocztuner: Is Maine Mall Motors near you? They will deliver the truck for nothing. Part of the Berlin City dealerships. I've heard good things and bad things about them but they are less expensive than others.
  10. For over a week now I've been sitting on a fence about which truck I want. Choices are: http://www.motortrend.com/cars/2006/nissan...otos/index.html http://www.dodge.com/ram_2500_3500/index.h...44&pid=12206058 The Titan is a 1/2 half ton truck that out-tows most 3/4 ton trucks. Bench seats instead of buckets. Polished pewter in color. The Ram is a 3/4 ton. Red or black are color choices. The Ram was deeply discounted (a leftover 2006) but Dodge's transmissions are suspect. The Titan is also 1 leftover. I'm leaning towards the Titan. Advice? Thoughts? Comments?
  11. Seriously, though, spreading moth balls around the property line works on skunks. You might try it on coons. I just don't know how you'd get them off of the moths or how many it would take...............
  12. I live in the Adirondack mountains. Wildlife is everywhere. If you can figure out how to get it there you can have one of the 2 bears that frequent my house. It will take care care of the coons for you,
  13. I've run Network Configuration on both. I've enabled Printer & File Sharing. I want to use the printer connected to the desktop w/ the laptop.
  14. I'm trying to set up a home network but am having problems. The problem isn't connecting. I'm having a hard time getting my laptop to access my desktop. Laptop has Windows XP Media Edition & desktop (in sig) has XP Pro. I can log onto the internet with no problems. Any help is appreciated.

    Bulk Return Policy I open the pkg. before signing for it & check for damage. After that I would have to deal w/ Westinghouse directly. And by most accounts their Customer Service is pretty good. But, no, I can't RMA it to Newegg like other merchandise.

    Reviews were good. I looked at a Westinghouse model w/ max to 720p @ Best Buy. The one I bought is coming from Newegg & is several steps above the one @ BB so I felt comfortable buying it online. The EGG had free shipping & a $200. discount. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16889234001 It's a monitor only but my cable company will supply the tuner/DVR to enable the TV signals. I'm kinda itching to hook my laptop up to it. If it doesn't work out then I've just bought myself one hell of a desktop computer monitor.
