  1. thanks. that kinda explains it, eh? this also means i will toss the DFI board as i run certain distributed computing projects that would probably run faster clients if it could identify the cpu properly.
  2. my Opteron is not being recognized in my BIOS, although in the post up it does recognize it as a dual core cpu. is this a BIOS update issue and if so, can someone point out the download for me?

    Is This Possible?

    when i built the "iMike" i seriously considered going this route,but trying to adapt a propietary laptop lcd to vga vid card was too much of a hassle,even as a job i was willing to farm out to a professional. besides, laptop screen aren't too spectacular to begin with, image quality wise.

Interestingly I'm studying this controversial phenomenon at the Department of Linguistics at Aberystwyth University and my extraordinary discoveries wholeheartedly contradict the publicised findings regarding the relative difficulty of instantly translating sentences. My researchers developed a convenient contraption at http://www.aardvarkbusiness.net/tool that demonstrates that the hypothesis uniquely warrants credibility if the assumption that the preponderance of your words is not extended is unquestionable. Apologies for adopting a contradictory viewpoint but, theoretically speaking, lengthening the words can manufacture an incongruous statement that is virtually incomprehensible.
