Team 93I'm a rocker - I rock out

  • Hahaha, wow. They really updated the site a lot. I think we got stuck on #60-something. I don't remember, exactly.
  • Yep, that's the one. I plan on hopefully working/researching there as an undergrad, which is one thing I really like about that school - you don't have to be a graduate to participate in the research opportunities. The weather isn't going to be t…
  • GROW A BEARD! Seriously, if you can get a good one going, you get awesome points right away. Trust me. I look like a little kid when I shave mine off. Just be sure not to cross from trim, neat beard into homeless, good-lord-what-just-flew-out-of-the…

  • Thank you, worked great.
  • So I just did the rotating cube thing. Holy wow, that was genius. Took me quite awhile to notice that something was moving.

  • Nah, that's hot (edit: in general, I mean. I still think Spears is a silly wench) Her hair looks really weird in that picture, though, like it's glued down to her head.
  • My system drive and video drive are both connected via onboard SATA. My music drive (the 320) is connected via onboard IDE.

  • It's not so much their tactics that irritate me (honestly 90% of the music associated with them is trash anyway [excluding many bands of the classic rock-era]). It's the fact that they have such a deathgrip on the industry. They work with ClearCh…
  • So excited. Oh man.
  • Ech, eyes gross me out. I think they can be extremely pretty sometimes, on the right person, but WHAT they are just grosses me out. It took me an hour and a half to get my contacts in the first time. I once got a piece of dirt in my eye, but I th…
  • Benni Hemm Hemm - BeginningEnd The Happies - Everything's Fine, Cover Your Eyes Schnauser - How Do They Do That? I've been on a very poppy kick lately. It feels so right for summer! And holy crap am I bored. This is the first night since sch…
  • Well, I just showed it to my parents because I think it's so cool. They mentioned something about the jellyfish, too - they said that's a lake. The only freshwater one, actually, with jellyfish, and they've lost their ability to sting. So there y…
  • I remember reading this, and also another article on it. Correct me if I'm wrong, but they didn't have a chip, per say. I thought it was a single transistor that they managed to get working at these speeds. I imagine it's still just a shimmer on the…

  • Yeah, sample clips is a good idea. AND DON'T MAKE IT AUTOPLAY, it's just about, oh, the most annoying thing in the world.

  • I think it's a good idea, and I want to build one myself, but I think there's not really that killer app yet. Sure, you've got XP media center, but it's not exactly seamless integration.
  • Also, everyone's forgetting that a case is never airtight (and rightfully so). Fans in back will pull air from the front and from all areas. For that reason, it's a good idea to figure out your airflow, but I wouldn't exactly say that you should hav…
  • Awwww What kind of cat is Dora, by the way? Looks like a short-haired version of my cats (they're Ragdolls).
  • Call me full of sh*t, but I still can't fully buy into this. The Earth goes through cycles continually, why can't this one be one that just happens to be warmer? Airborn, a 90* tilt? You do realize that the earth's axis kind or rotates like a …
  • Yeah. I bawled my eyes out when my dog Gallagher got ran over (by my own grandpa, no less!). Haven't lost a pet since then (10+ years), but my other dog's hips are failing... we may have to put her down at some point. I'm gonna cry so hard.

  • The Phantom is pretty good, from what I've read. If you want silencing tips, SPCR is the place to be. I've gotten addicted to making my computer quieter. Look into the Antec P180 case as well. For the record, I've got a Seasonic S12 500w (which i…
  • Don't Look Back - 1887/D.I.Y.A. Up-C Down-C Left-C Right-C ABC + Start - Stand Shadowless Like Silence God Is An Astronaut - Fire Flies and Empty Skies I made a playlist of the Top 50 post-rock albums of 2005, playing on random.
  • uTorrent really is quite the amazing little program. I had a tiny bit of a rough transition from Azureus to it, but now I'd never go back. 82 seeding torrents, 1-2% CPU, 8mb RAM. Fantastic.
  • Come to think of it, I had this issue awhile back, too. If I remember right, it had to do with the "RAM check" thing. When you start up, just in the BIOS screen, do you see a little counter that flies through your RAM and counts/checks it? If you do…
  • I think you guys misunderstood my question. I don't need to game. I need it to run a resolution of 1680x1050 basically for my desktop, and whatever DVDs/videos I watch. I will upgrade to a more powerful video card at some point (stock 7900GTs look o…
  • You don't actually believe that, do you, leishi? Or this video?
  • Oh, there's one sound that really sucks. For One-Click Backup (WinRAR scheduler), it used to have a sound file that would play when it failed to do its duty. It was a really annoying clip of a chicken going, "buckbuck... BUGAWK!" For some reason …
  • Sledge, I guess that's my main issue. It's not affordable (for the majority of the average consumer), not even remotely. Even going for a mediocre SLi setup is a kick in the face. One defense might be that new technology always lowers "old" techn…
  • My God. Doesn't the premise of this thread make you sick? WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD? 4 GPUs and 2 dualcore CPUs? I mean, come on, that's disgusting. It literally makes me sad. It's gone beyond unnecessary into flat-out disturbing, seriously. …
  • Exactly. Recently I've become obsessed with noise. I just got the Antec P180 case and Seasonic S12 500w PSU. My computer dropped from moderate to quiet, and I haven't done any tweaks on the case/airflow yet. The reason these chips look so appeali…
  • Both. I think what usually happens to me is I hear it, and then my brain kind of acts like a selective filter. For example, with Cloud Cult (which is now easily one of my favorite bands), I just had it playing. Then all the sudden I tuned in, and it…

  • The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Very Rare Oh. Yeah. !. This is fitting my mood 100% perfectly. WOO!
  • Neil On Impression - The Perfect Tango Currently on #2: Like Hippos Running to the Moon Fantastic stuff. I could literally listen to this all day. No lie.
  • Lossless is still just flat-out too big. For someone who carries only their 2gb Rio around, APS mp3s are perfect.

  • I only have one pair that I would wear out. I've got a pair of dress shoes, but I wouldn't wear those every day. If you think about it, there's absolutely no need for more than one pair of the same kind of shoe. Unless you're a girl and/or really…
  • TheSMJ, those things are awesome. We found several smaller ones once. Beautiful things when they emerge.

  • It seems to have something to do with the pixel timings. from Dell's website, This monitor has 146.25 MHz pixel clock for analog signal and 119 MHz for digital. Apparently it's using the 146.25 for the digital (DVI), when it shouldn't be.…
  • Oh wow, I'm glad you brought this up. I've got this same problem on my 2005FPW. I didn't know using the VGA made a difference, though! Interesting. Mine happens to be on the left side, though, and it almost looks like slow-moving ripples going up…
  • So while camping this weekend, I just learned from my friends there's an actual method to lighting those craptastic paper matches. I always pressed my finger against the head, struck, and jerked finger away. This rarely worked. You're supposed to fo…
  • Crash is the only one I would really want to watch again, from any on that list. Only movie to make me tear up. Oh, and I keep a list of movies I need to see in my wallet at all times. Here's the list so far. Blue ones I've already seen, but I'll…
  • Actually, I found the answer myself. Most of the apparently have an option to "disengage" the extra 4 pins - for example, mine just folded away from the rest of the plug. The four are NOT necessary - you should be able to plug any 24 into any 20, as…
  • Urgent question: I have a new powersupply. I have an old motherboard. My powersupply has a 24 pin connector, while my board only has, surprise, 20 pins. Solution? Do I have to buy an adapter? Is there anything I can do until then?
  • Hah. Wow. Actually, that's a dick move (heh), because you know there are those few people there that probably are really offended. Last year the seniors chained the principal's car to a pole (think big, huge links, too). They all handed him a key…
  • Another reason MySpace needs to be removed from existence. Honestly, that site is nothing but a black mark on the internet. Ugh.
