RE: External HDD Suggestions?
TBH, I don't like any of the full size 3.5" externals much and think they miss the point as a product category. They are clunky and need an external power supply, so moving them between computers or carrying them with you will be more hassle than ...

RE: New system
The higher aerial density can result in similar or even greater sustained throughput, which is one performance criteria for hard drives. On the other hand, higher rpm drives will continue to lead for the average random seek time, the other key perfo...

RE: Lasik Operations.
If your prescription is already bad enough (what we here call "coke bottles") that it can't be corrected with the convenient, disposable kind of contacts and you need custom-made hard gas-permeable type, the cost and the hassle of handling them co...

RE: Lasik Operations.
The only way it can lead to blindness is if the procedure is screwed up very badly and even then you would only lose one eye. It is always done one eye at a time and you have to have correctable vision in both to be eligible. The perfect outcome won...

RE: Problems with vertically centering a DIV
This is where CSS fails and tables, as allergic to their usage as you might be, are a whole lot simpler. I am not even closely following what you are trying to do, but if you are going to vertically center anything, your HTML and BODY both need to be...

RE: Trying to identify a device in Device Manager
If it's not broken, don't try to "fix" it. I usually get the most recent drivers for everything when I (re)install the OS. Unless there is a specific issue, I then leave it alone except for keeping the Nvidia or ATI graphics card drivers up to...

RE: 466GB
The moral: if it doesn't come with intact factory seals on the box, inspect the contents before you leave the store. Or better yet, don't even accept something somebody has already messed with.

RE: Overclocking my CPU
1) RAM [b]is[/b] dirt cheap. 2) Dual channel -- with most motherboards, there is a performance advantage to installing memory in matched pairs. He could install 2x512MB, but that would probably be silly.

RE: typing jumps?!
This is a very common laptop issue, which has to do with the touchpad or the pointing stick acting flaky. You can read through [url=http://www.google.com/search?q=laptop+cursor+ jumps]these Google results[/url] and hopefully find a fix that works for...

RE: GPO to control WLM
Microsoft doesn't offer any support for managing WLM via group policy. That said, you can probably figure out which registry key controls logging being on or off and make your own [url=http://support.microsoft.com/kb/225087]custom ADM file[/url] to...

Not sure how helpful this is, but you should know the ADI SoundMAX chipsets are essentially unsupported at this point. The latest driver that was published by ADI is about 5 years old. If you are having issues with the Microsoft's bundled driver i...

RE: Help me choose a monitor
As with all things in life, you get what you pay for. It may be a good value for $129, but I'd be lying if I were to tell you it sounds like a great monitor. Looking to spend only ~$200 you are not going to get much, but the one feature I wouldn't...

RE: I want to join the dark side.
I can never understand the reasoning of people who consider Macbook as "just another laptop" and throw it on their list along with Dells and whatnot, to ultimately decide based on specs and/or price. You should make up your mind on whether you want...

RE: One single partition or two?
The way I usually set up my Windows computers is with two separate volumes -- one for system + applications, another for data including Windows user profiles. There are several methods to moving the profiles; the easiest is changing the default user...

RE: Plus! Meeting, London '09
It seems like fun was had by all and I regret I couldn't be there. Part of it was me not paying attention closely enough early on. I actually found out what the date was only two weeks before. That's not much of a notice for a transatlantic trip ...

RE: 32-bit or 64-bit?
If you have 4GB or less physical memory, use a 32-bit OS. At 4GB, the amount of memory "lost" which you might regain by going with 64-bit Windows will be mostly offset by the larger memory footprint of the 64-bit machine code. Whatever small gai...

RE: Earphone wind noise problems
This idea may sound a bit strange at first, but if it's an issue with skiing and your iPod is one of the smaller models, you could probably stuff it under your cap. It seems like this would work fine with the typical knit ski caps and Nano or Shuff...

RE: What nationality are you most like?
This is a very poorly composed poll. It is full of stereotypes and has a clear bias. First of all, you might notice that there isn't a single positive (or even neutral) checklist item for Americans. This is simply untrue. Secondly, while sushi has...

RE: ISO Programs
It was the case when you burned a coaster, perhaps. Nero Burning ROM (yes, lame name) has had boot sector support forever. Nero Express didn't last time I looked. However, even that doesn't matter one bit in your example of [b]copying[/b] a CD...

A bottle of good champagne and a box of condoms, "ribbed for her pleasure", should suffice -- along with you making no other plans for the night.

RE: What is Your Phone Codes?
U.S. and Canada share the same number format and international dialing code (+1). For international dialing purposes, they can be regarded as one country. I am not sure what is the historical reason behind that. The number format is 3 digit area co...

I don't think I've ever believed Santa really exists. When I was very young (<= 5 years old) my parents tried to play one, but it's not like I was actually fooled. I played along with it because they bothered to play along with it, and because i...
