    New Firefox out

    The live bookmarks is pretty cool. What sucks is now you have to wait for the extension/theme authors to update their themes/extensions. Or you could manually update them and repackage them. Fortunately my most frequently used extensions, bbcode and web developer are already updated.

    At home I still can't connect. I tried tracert but it came back without being able to resolve the domain to an IP. I could get to though. I didn't try the other addresses because I could get here to see them. So I'll check tonight when I get home.

    Best 2D Graphics card for $100

    $100... and 2D quality only matters.... Why not use two cheap ATI cards? one AGP and one PCI? I found plenty for under $50 when I looked at newegg. You just have to find two that are able to handle the resolutions you are talking about.

    36 million Americans now living in poverty

    The solution to the escalating gap between the haves and the have nots is simply to get rid of money. No, I'm not kidding. I think we have surpassed the need for money as a society long ago.

    Walmart's $598 ECS Wonder-Laptop

    That is if you like HP laptops. And of course you need to up the RAM. I did some research on the ECS web site and it looks like the laptop is upgradeable to 640MB. That is 128MB on board and a 200pin SO-DIMM slot to take up to 512MB of ram. prices from crucial 512MB $104.99 (USD) 256MB...

    Walmart's $598 ECS Wonder-Laptop

    For all those college kids going off to school I think this is great. Even if it is a bt slow, because it is ECS not because of the other components, who cares? I'd like to actually see one and determine if it is usable. But that is all I think it will require for this laptop to be very...

    wireless questions

    When I transfer images I bring the laptop to the router and hook it up with an actual cable. It was just too slow over the wireless connection. I'm only in B mode because of the built-in wireless of the centrino platform.

    How come this forum doesn't allow editing?

    Posts are much quicker than writing term papers. But I agree in theory that the effort should be of that level. But often you don't have time to do all that. You have something you can post quickly now or wait to do it later. Often forgetting if it gets pushed to later. Consider people new...

    I found a way to get a free 4GB/20GB IPOD MP3 player..

    How easy are these offers you have to complete? How about bidding on an ebay item with a new ebay account? You'll almost never win and it takes only a few minutes to do it.

    I say fdisk/format the bastard. I think it takes less time. I make sure to load up the following: NOD32 (they have to pay for this), ZoneAlarm, Firefox, Adaware Optionally Thunderbird, gimp Then you have to educate the users. All this takes at least 3-4 hours maybe more. So consider whether you...

    HOSTS file for blocking ads / spam

    I think Merc and a few others use one. The router doesn't matter as this trick works by blocking Domain Name Lookups. The router doesn't provide DNS services it just passes those requests on to the ISP DNS Servers. To resolve a domain your computer first looks in the hosts file to see if you...

    Bold New Plan For Social Security

    WTB: Cheap PC133 SDRAM

    Only question is regarding density. See this page for info I found in my search. This RAM needs to work in an intel 810 chipset board. Offer is $20, with $3 allowance for shipping, so total $23. For one stick of 128MB, standard or low density. I don't care much about generic vs crucial as long...

    WTB: Cheap PC133 SDRAM

    Well I just checked and the ram in there is a 128MB PC100 stick. Not sure of the CL rating (2 or 3). Looking on ebay it seems the mean price is about $40. Oh well maybe I'll try just a 128MB stick for a total of 256MB.

He said he wanted it faster and I figured if I could throw 256MB of RAM in there for $20 that would be worth it. There is one DIMM in there...
