Re: Dropbox

XDrive bit the dust early this year and I had not found a replacement. I do like the extra space as well.

Is this thing full of advertisers or will the spam mail you their partner's goods and wares? That's one thing I hate.

Re: It is a sad day

My dad once blocked this site by accident using the OpenDNS. There is a check box to block chat, forums, IM, and others. When he tried getting to this site he was blocked out. I had to laugh at him.

Re: Computer won't shut down all the way

The other method to solve this is to run MSCONFIG and check-off items in the startup.

Re: Computer won't shut down all the way

then added a blu-ray drive and a usb media card reader (plugs into usb pins on mobo). Can you revert back to the original setup without the blue ray and usb card reader? You will need to uninstall the drivers and then reboot and finally try a shut down. If it all works well to shut down try install...

Noticed that someone got a fake pump by that eBay or Craigs list seller out in California. :evil:

Here's a picture of the pumps I have in the FS thread.

We tried to get onto the egg. It must have had tremendous amount of traffic since we had timed out on nearly every click. High speed DSL could not get us in. We then gave up.

Re: Black Friday 2009

Are any of the online companies posting BF or BM sales? The early morning cold chills waiting in line was fun for the first 10 mins. The next hour seemed to drag on until the store opened.

Re: MILLION HIT BY 'PLAGUE WORSE THAN SWINE FLU'

The H5N1 is nothing to sneeze at nor have it sneezed on you. The higher the HX number the more severe the number of deaths are predicted. So far 5 is the highest on the scale.

Will there be any ripe deals this year?

Many of the so called leak sites are a mixed bag.

Wally's mart will be open on turkey day. That is not right.

Re: AMD and Intel Announce Settlement of All Antitrust and IP

Cash. What bank has that amount of money in this economy?

It was interesting seeing the bell at the close today of Intel and AMD.

Re: AMD's 2010 - 2011 Processor Roadmaps

Just read today that Intel will be giving AMD 1.25 BILLION as an out of court settlement.

For that price, Intel should have just bought AMD out right.
