I like AC/DC and Ozzy. I never really got into the heavier stuff though.
As long as it's not that bubble gum dance club music crap, I like it :axe:

I watch Jeopardy and am usually quite good at getting the questions, so I'd like to think I could answer those 5th grade questions. :)

My last ECS board was a P4S5A which now resides in my sister's PC. It looks like they've improved things since then.

I used to use dvd decrypter and Pinnacle Instant Copy 7 with great results.
I don't think Pinnacle makes it anymore.
Back when SVCD was the big thing, I used DVD2SVCD and CCE 2.50.

I tried it but for some reason it caused all of my downloads to be corrupted.

It seems to be a common problem with some chipset fans. The fans can spin at over 5000 rpm and the bearings wear out over time.

I tried it with a Verbatim 1 GB thumb drive and find some programs do open a little quicker.
