    Contest Coming Up

    Just broke into the top 15 of OCC folders with a bit over 3,000,000 points. Just about ready to stop folding for the next few months because of the heat my machines are generating, so I will put my points toward Verran's name and help push him past me before I shut it down.

    Need a car guys opinion!

    I had an intermitten crunching noise from the rear of my car once, turned out to be an inner wheel bearing that wore out. The bearings were so worn that when going over a bump in a turn allowed the bearing surfaces to misalign and make a sickening crunch before returning to its normal alignment. Easy to check, just jack the car up to get the tire off the surface and see if there is any play.

    How efficient is Windows 7?

    Well, not sure how much of it is needed to function, but the Windows folder is about 17GB in size vs 22GB for Vista vs 15GB for XP. RAM usage is around 1.5GB for Win 7 and Vista, 600MB for XP. Negligible differences really when you get a 500GB HDD and 4GB RAM in a not too expensive system.

    How efficient is Windows 7?

    I have two computers running XP, and one computer that I am dual booting Vista and Win 7. I have never been much for the pretty interfaces in XP and Vista, so I actually run the Windows Classic style (Windows 95 look and feel ) in XP and Vista. But in Win 7, I am really liking the Aero themes (United States is my favorite) so much, I can't go back to the Classic style. Very nice interface and Win 7 runs great too, even with Aero enabled. If I could get Win 7 free, I would definitely upgrade from XP, but I am still very happy with XP, so I really have no incentive to upgrade yet. So, in short, I guess what I am trying to say is if I HAD to pick, I would go with Windows 7.

    The Offical What did you get for Christmas Thread.

    I got a new cell phone on the 23rd - not really for Christmas but because my old one died and I was able to upgrade. It's an LG enV3. Not a Droid or iPhone, but it serves my needs very well.
