Re: It is a sad day

Mmk. Fair. If the only restriction is games and videos, why are they blocking everything? (Seems like a good point to follow in a argument *ahem* debate)

This is the first time I've done some of this stuff. Please be kind. http://i458.photobucket.com/albums/qq302/Ghandi_Khan/submission3jpg.jpg Not bad for a first timer!

Re: Google Wave

I have heard a lot of rave about Google Wave. Sounds interesting, useful, but I don't know about viability. At the moment I'm using a program called Dropbox for all of my collab work.

Re: Daily Water Intake?

Hah, I drink about a 1/2 Litre of Milk a day, about 250Ml of water and about 300Ml of Soda. I recommend sticking to about 1 Can a day of soda, if possible because it does nasty stuff to your body, like leaching the calcium from your bones (ick.) Juice is generally cheaper, but water is the cheapest ...

Re: It is a sad day

Seems like an interesting conundrum, although I do completely side with the employer in terms of "You should be working, not goofing off on some website." In the end you are paid to work, not to post on LR. I can sympathise however, as at school there is an actual Hardware filter on all of the inter...

Re: PII X4 945.......

I have a PII 940. I have been running at 3.5GHz quite comfortably on stock voltage and stock cooling, although installing a big GPU didn't help with temperature. No particular advice on my part in any case.

It's a great movie.
Is anyone else going to comment on how amazingly disgusting the iMax glasses are? Like seriously, you'd be looking around like *Why is everyone sleeping* *They're not sleeping they're just to ashamed to show their faces with those hideous glasses on* *Oh, fair enough*

how are you guys getting those sweet looking graphics on the heatsink without it going over the edge?
