Don't let the facts get in the way of a good theory, it might prevent us from enjoying all that wonderful moon cheese. mmmm. moon cheese.

I would have given up about 23:15 or thereabouts, but if you really want to bring him around.... I might use a simpler example. Say F=ma. Then ask what force is required to bring an object of mass m to velocity v in exactly 0 time. a=(vf-vi)/t, so if you sub in 0 for the denominator there, you get a...

There's a way to make a boot floppy if you can get it to boot into linux. Get it there, make the floppy, then disable grub. Sorry I can't be more helpful with that, I've only dabbled with linux.

When I had LILO, I just used a linux boot floppy if I wanted linux and took out the disk for windows. It got around a different problem, but might help you here (i.e. if you disable grub I mean)

Yeah, you have to judge your own ability, and you don't get to come back and say "you said I could, and now I pooched my laptop and it's all your fault" "Proceed at own risk" comes to mind. I know you're joking about the microwave, but make sure you say that you're joking, because there are some peo...

Well, probably, just keep the hammer away from it. The other post describes the way it should be done.

Hee hee, I've done that before, but luckily, you're probably ok.

Well, I don't have too much more to say on this, but... :) In the early 90's there were a couple of studies of identical twins (ie. two people, identical genes).

Fair enough.

What better way to kill off a species than to find the perfect way to prevent the natural propagation of the species.

First off, saying that men or women are 'more' intelligent implies several things: 1. Intelligence can be defined as a single variable (as in IQ scores). This was the commonly held view in the 1950's, but since then a more valid way of thinking about it has been that of "specific intelligences" (goo...

I like winamp . You can customize the equalizer and save all the settings you like.

No clue about the surround sound modes th...

I'm assuming you're using windows XP. If you install Tweak UI for XP, then launch it and click on control panel it will give you the option to hide any control panel icon. This doesn't uninstall it though, just hides it.

I think you want the song to continue across all of your slides, and I don't think powerpoint supports this. Inserting a sound clip into the slide master causes it to restart each time you advance the slide, a little annoying, but that might work depending on your soundtrack. You can load a song int...

Post Posted: February 11th, 2004, 9:41 am

Out of curiosity, what's better about firefox compared with regular mozilla? Looking around mozilla.org they tell you tabbed browsing, popup blockers and stuff, but all that comes with plain vanilla mozilla.

Also, the multizilla plugin is excellent. Tabbed browsing done right :)

In a command prompt you can just type "shutdown" and it'll give you the options that go along with it. For example, "shutdown -s" actually will shutdown your PC.
