    Broadband Over Gas Lines

    A great idea, technically feasible, relitively simple, makes use of a wide spread existing infastructure, none of the interferce issues associated with BPL (broadband over powerline). The entry costs are low enough that it could become very competive with other internet/ television/ telephone...

    Steve Irwin dead

    A sad day. He certain brought attention to many rare animals (as well as himself) and proved that eco-tourism is as economically valuable (and less damaging to wildlife/enviroment) as trophy hunting.

    If they want to send me one for extended testing..........;) The first thing that jump out at their site was Welcome to the World of Nanomicrons and Beyond! Nanomicron? what they hell is that? Too many made up buzz words, too much hype, too few facts! I vote scam, or at best, too well...

    Seasonic Power Angel

    My computers would be a place to start, but other items that only run intermitantly (computer room A/C, refridgerator, home entertainment center, etc) could use a power audit too. I can read a devices specs and calculate it maximum theoretical draw, but that's not what it actually uses in the...

    Wireless networking questions.

    Without knowing the model numbers it's hard to say if there is a model specific fix, but netgear is generally pretty good quality with decent tech support and updates issued when needed. The weaknesses with USB adapters is usually the small antenna, low power and limited positions. If you...

    USB devices.

    I'm sure it's not the USB and I doubt it's the drive, or flash portion of the player that "don't like"/have problems with extended character sets, i.e. a drive only "sees" bits, it does not care which bits you write. The computer O/S (the player IS a limited purpose computer) certainly might...

    AMD + ATI: What could it mean for us?

    i think this is terrible news. 1}AMD burns most /all of their cash on secondry business that has a low margin,= maybe leaving them unable to fully fund the R&D and of products for either. 2} intel must either pay AMD for GPU and Chipsets, or go with Nvidia or intel only GPU's=less...

    Amazon spams its customers, touts anti-Israeli views,

    No, image verification works, I just used 'bot' as a generic for a spammer pushing a political/social cause. perhaps I should have said astroturfing. either way it is unlikely shiela will return or has any actual interest in this forum other than promoting her own misguided propaganda.

    Amazon spams its customers, touts anti-Israeli views,

    Yes, sheila19621 appears to be a propaganda bot The truth is Amazon sends out ads to customers, who have chosen to be on their mailing list for all sorts of controversially books. don't like it? get off the list or spend your dollars elsewhere. Making money is Amazon's only agenda.

    Chipset temps way too high.

    That's a good place to start, most factory chipset coolers are installed with a small thermal pad, or at best a blob of cheap goop, doing a good cleaning and careful re- apply with quality paste can work wonders. As far as fans, there are to factors 1] getting the heat away from the heatsink...

    NEED HELP!!!!! removing ALCAN.I

    well I don't know if that's a good idea:eek: , those instructions are 4+ months old. all the major AV sites have manual instructions (alot of steps, a lot of work) but some mention that ALCAN can also install other worms making the removal job even harder. Since ALCAN is known to spread almost...
