  1. It looks like we're moving...lol
  2. Had me fooled on that one...was already cursing that dude to myself lol
  3. How about Hockey??? I'm curious as to if a member here likes hockey, which team in the NHL do they root for? How about that? I have no idea what's the most popular hockey team in the U.S. I know which one is the best right now, but would love to know which team you guys root for
  4. When people need help of course it should be done Agree with you there... My problem is that the UN doesn't even have a chance to show some "balls" as you put it, since before anything can be done, the U.S. decides to go in and do it themselves because they can... And I think that's a very wrong thing to do With being the military power comes great responsibility and it should be used when and only when it's necessary... Let me ask you something Dan...you seem like a very smart guy, do you honestly believe in any of that Weapons of mass destruction crap?
  5. Whoever made the United States the enforcer of who should or should not be communist? Whoever made the United States the enforcer of who should or should not be muslim? By arbitrarily meddling and invading other countries on what you "believe" is against your principles, you devoid these countries of the very freedom you claim you fight for... Shame on YOU for thinking for a second you can go and barging in anybody's backyard if it were someone barging in your house's backyard, I think you would shoot the person on the spot, defending your property no questions asked Being a military superpower doesn't give you the right to do as you see fit on other countries businesses Abusing your status as a military superpower across the globe is the VERY reason why you are targets to terrorism...
  6. I never said it was a good regime....I said....if it happens elsewhere in the world WHY do YOU care? It's not the United States' problem...so let everybody else live their own way I don't agree the way muslim societies dictate their freedoms or lack thereof, But I don't go barging in their backyard telling them it's wrong, if they wanna live like that, so be it, it's not my problem and it shouldn't be anybody else's but their own
  7. Greatest Nation on Earth? Did you actually live anywhere else? You might wanna check this out http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml...5/nindex205.xml You can't possibly think positively about what's happening with the US economy right now. What about communism?? if it happens elsewhere in the world and they wanna live like that why do you care??? About saddam killing the kurdistan people, it sucks, but that's why there's a UNITED NATIONS... Do you honestly believe that ANY nation has the right to just invade another nation as they see fit? give me a break...
  8. I'd imagine that being an american citizen I'd be easier for you, you have to fill out the aplication for a permanent residency, they will evaluate your application based on: a)language skills(in your case It shouldn't be a problem b)professional experience c)education level d)marital status(I believe married couples have a better chance than single aplicants) It'd better be...here is not a sport....it's a religion, like Tim hortons lol Alberta province is the very example of that...if I'm not mistaken Calgary is on obtic fiber for a while now...the whole city Make sure you stay away from the prairies !!!! there's no mountains to block the chilling wind...
  9. Hard to find decent places that are affordable. Since you're going out west your situation isn't any better as Vancouver always was the most expensive square foot in the country, and now Calgary is catching up since the city has an extensive technological background, and is growing a lot. a good place to start your search is www.mls.ca it might give you some ideas...
  10. It still doesn't make it right...

    The Witcher

    Up to this point my all around favorite game was Oblivion, but this Witcher one is cutting pretty darn close. All the aspects of the game are so different from what you are used to see in an RPG, I suspect even people that are not into RPGS will love this game. The only drawback I see is the occasional crashes, later I found why people are having this problem. I managed to pull up a task manager screenshot while the game was still running and it was consuming 1.5gb of RAM by itself, mind you I have 3gb or so and don't notice any slowdowns, but the sheer amount of RAM this game uses puts battlefield 2 to shame...lol

    The Witcher

    I've gotten to the Part V I'm very impressed with the game, it doesn't seem to end, I LOVE IT! the combat system is one of the most welcoming features, not to mention sleep with all kinds of babes is a definite plus....I bought the European Uncensored version....it's freaking awesome!
  13. That's the new audio module in vista that converts all multi channel into Stereo output there are workarounds this if you have a creative sound cards with the alchemy project but with the realtek drivers I'm not sure...do some googling on it...you might get lucky
  14. Nope...you'll need to load the drivers...thankfully, vista is not as archaic as XP and accepts USB flash drivers as source for drivers install as opposed to floppys only. I have an ICHR8 and had to load the intel drivers from my USB key on the first install...
  15. Nope...it has 8 ports total, 6 controlled by the ICHR9 close to the southbridge itself and two in the backpanel controlled by the Jmicron
  16. Oblivion, my favorite game all around bought it almost two years ago and still playing...so many mods that make the game even more interesting
  17. Of course...but once you enter your OEM license and windows is ACTIVATED, your machine spec is sent to microsoft, after that if you try and change the Motherboard you WILL be required to activate your windows again, receiving a shiny message saying you "altered" your hardware since first activation....as I mentioned on my first post it HAPPENED to me when updated my mobo chipset drivers...
  18. Provided you don't change the Motherboard or CPU...in his case, he mentions a CPU change...if his OEM license was already activated with the old CPU, after changing the CPU vista WILL complain that the hardware has been changed and he will have to call microsoft
  19. Nope...I have an OEM license as well and when I tried to update the chipset driver for my motherboad, vista complained that I "altered" the hardware under which my license was activated initially, so I'd be careful with what you wanna modify...
  20. All you need to know about the coolermaster PSUs is, Extreme series are junk....real power series is the one you should be going for......... look at the price difference between them for a model of same wattage...it should give you an idea why...
  21. Well, I've traveled AA, Continental, Delta, United and found the service to be pretty much the same, until last may, me and my GF went to London, England and we flew British Airways...I know you guys are mostly talking about American companies, but I have to emphasize how GOOD their service is...I never thought flying coach could be so "Uneventful", I was really impressed how much they seem to actually give a . about their passengers, not only that but the food is edible, too bad they only service from the U.K.
  22. Interesting...i added a second 120mm fan crossflowing from the hard drive cage to the video card and id idles at 54ºc....If no fan is placed or if I rely just on the front intake fan the temperatures climb to 61ºc on load the temperature never get past 70ºC with the extra fan...anything to cool those hot 8800GT
  23. Thanks man.., we went to Rio de Janeiro for our first vacation together...it was awesome
