first underground test with success... :roll: well sort of.....you shouldn't have a mushroom with a underground test. there were to blasts a couple hours apart and the smoke appeared even later.

Don't think it was a NUKE, the US would know in seconds (satellites are monitoring them for an EMP, I'm sure) However, This is next to one of their biggest missile bases and it's very possible a large ammo dump or missle fuel storage area had a large accident. Due to extreme finanial problems many o...

I just installed the CCC version on my Win2k machine with a 9600pro. As yet I don't see much advantage over the standard panel other than the preview mode, and not sure if I'll keep this or go back to the standard version. certainly adds alot of overhead having to add .net and the driver package is ...

Yes raid 0 is faster. however the failure rate (loss of all data) is more than twice that of a single same drive alone (because the single drive may be partially recoverable, with raid 0 if one drive fails NO RECOVERY IS POSSIBLE) best bet would be 2 SATA's on raid 0 and a large drive for daily back...

And now most anlysts are saying it could hit $50, unless the world calms down, this is mostly about fear of shortages, not current shortages.

Get on the waiting list, by the time one is available you should have saved the $20k. My Parents got one in 02, after a 9 month wait (they ordered a '01 but toyota subsituted an 02 at the same price because they ran out of '01's, ford, Gm and toyota are all about to release hybrid SUV's which get ar...

Nope! I don't think you can assume the only contributor to case temp is the HSF. The effectivenenss of the HSF can be limited by a high case temp, which could be caused by inaddaquite case fans, a high end GPU, etc. The ability of the HSF to maintain a relitively low and unchanging delta (difference...

And I see you really want to believe the name change (just look at the service records included in the links I provided), Bush is perfect, Edwards is probably another inattentive idiot, so there isn't much more I can say.

There is truth and spin to both sides. I have no doubt many atrocites occured in vietnam, some were well publisized and a few prosecuted.
