  2. ive been using IE7 since it was in its first beta form... i like it mozilla is to godzilla like for myself to even consider using it... change the loading image (or rid it)... and fix its interface up a bit... and ill be all over it.
  3. Hymn

    America's Army

    training is annoying.. i had the game for like 3 days then removed it... it annoyed me how every single time i would have to hear the same old lectures over and over again if i didnt complete or pass a training mission.
  4. haha its not even thx giving yet! 9 hours till the day. i am sadly doing nothing on my thanksgiving... no relitaves or anyone to spend it with so my family, grandma, and a neighbor is only going to be here... other than that ill be on the computer all day. EDIT: Oh yeah, HAPPY ^PRE^ THANKSGIVING!
  5. this is my only DFI PC at the moment, how my future builds will be of DFI boards. Currently using the SLI-DR.
  6. Of course t_ski! So many hazardous things have happend to me in my life already that I do know from experience... It also comes from my father as he owns an enormous machine shop and teaches me how to use the tools & machines properly... so when I need to use them, I use them right. -Tom
  7. Haha, great! Just one tip for the future, try wearing shoes when using machines... Whats up with the gear? You wear that hat 24/7? Just foolin... -Tom
  8. yes i read your post, your raving about how well it doesnt work... cut your PC the slack.. not yourself.
  9. Wise words here from Hymn... there is simply too many negative things to say about vista i cant possibly list them all... How ever, i will infact show you something i did to test out whats the deal here with Vista... this is part of an email/review (what became a document sent to microsofts marketing research team)... that i wrote. And there, those of you who are questioning microsofts new operating system Vista... or get seduced by its looks... or WHAT EVER your desire to buy that operating system is... i would say your crazy. Micrsoft is claiming Direct X 10 is going to be Vista only, but im sure it will be offered on XP sooner or later slip streamed, hacked into... what ever... to get DX10 on XP. -Tom
  10. btw i thought this was a better picture of me: its the iHymn (iTom).... what ever you want to call it made it in photoshop, took me 10 minutes with preparation :-P sometimes when you dont want to do schoolwork, you will do anything in the world to pass the time.
  11. after viewing your previous posts... i really think your aiming for this: what do you think? btw: woot, dual-hymns! whats next... quad-hymns?!?! -Tom
  12. those TV tuners look bigger than a standard PCI express 1x slot... catkicker many motherboard mcft's also use the pci-express 1x slots for soundcards.
  13. haha, but who says you cant think outside the box... or outside the obvious?
  14. Ohh... but then that isnt failsafe (boo hiss)... if the plug falls out your screwed!
  15. Wow catkicker, that is the most inspiring story ive heard all week. LONG LIVE THE 6800ULTRA AGP! Hey... make the most out of it while you got it.
  16. Its great for practice if you plan on doing something like it in the future... or if you just want to test yourself to have the experience.
  17. Haha, i know exactly what your thinking... multitasking with the same mouse... Ex: Talk on AIM on one screen while playing a game full screen on the other? I tried that this morning and it was upsettings... From what ive tried you cant do that... Ok, you can have your game full screened and see AIM and Xfire and what not on the other screen while having a game full screen open, how ever when you click to send an instant message on the other screen... the game will minimize on you anyways.
  18. I have never used water cooling, or experimented with it... but are the fillports / drainports failsafe? In a way they automatically close or lock so no water can come out but things can only come in? Hows it work? -Tom
  19. What do you choose? I ask this because right now im testing my PC with 2 monitors and the downfall so far is while playing CounterStrike Source the crosshair is RIGHT in the middle of the two screens, so you cant see where you are aiming at. Vote and tell the downfall or benefits of your choice... or why you would choose that in your future. -Tom
  20. you can always go for the patches that help you stop smoking... -Tom
  21. i use air at the moment, and my setup for air is pretty well designed ill have to say ... in my future i plan on going water though just because i can square what UncleDavid said "Watercooling. It's so much fun modding a case in preparation for the cooling components"... i love to mod things and do fun stuff aside from putting the pieces together.
  22. i have 3mbps down / 512 up... its convient enough.
  23. How would you plan on using the T line to drain? If i do go water cooling in my future ide go with the T line & fillport so i dont have to store water in a reservoir.
  24. Its nothing great, i simply did this one for the fun of it... to get the feeling of taking the "clothes" off a processor. I am in the process of cleaning up my computer workbench, getting rid of all the old computers I have that have no use... so i took the processor out of an old AMD board (one of the first), and removed the heatspreader. Interesting how AMD went from: Heatspreader (K6) > No Heatspreader (Duron) > Heatspreader (64 Bit) Was expecting when i took the heatsink off that it would have no heatsink.. i was wrong... Here is a pic: and here is a small video of it hand-held: video link here you may notice the bandage on my finger... first time experience something always goes wrong, this time i slice my finger. however, im ok -Tom
  25. I couldnt agree with you more LithoTech! Thats going to be how ill have to accomplish my task of a new PC (even though my current one is only 1 and a 1/2 years old)... its going to be a while, i gotta go for something big... QUAD Core :angel: . Much like UncleDavid how he bought parts as he made money... most likely what im going to do. It even helps to do that because you can make up your mind as progress moves along... and pre-plan ect... much like your comparison to climbing Mt. Everest. -Tom
