Title: The 'Simple Questions' thread.
Post by: echo_trail on September 09, 2008, 08:14:54 am
Oi.
Sometimes you have a question for the forumpeople, but you don't feel like it's really worth making an entire new thread for. Well, some of you post it anyway. So I figured we'd make a topic here in which to post those questions, and try to keep it simple.

I'll go first with an example, and at the same time get out a couple of questions that this thread was intendet for in the first place.

1. Any of you know of a good, free videoediting program? Like, for putting together some, say, gaming clips?

2. What's a good place to download english subtitles and how do you make it work? *solved*

Now you just answer the questions or ask some of your own.
Enjoy,
echo

PS: please only answer/ask questions if you have something serious or constructive to say. Otherwise this'll get messy real quick.

PPS: Keep questions in this thread answerable. If you have a question with a debatable answer, make a new thread for it. Offenders will be muted. - Espadon

2. What's a good place to download english subtitles and how do you make it work?
I just google "subtitles", load the first few results in tabs and enter the search term in each one of them until I find something. Always worked so far and after a while you know which sites to avoid.

Put the files in the same directory as the video files, make sure they have the same names (with exception of the file extension). Play the file in VLC.

Since you're probably looking for subs for ripped movies, make sure the run time, amount of CDs etc. match or you'll get out of sync subs.

Are Creative headphones good for music and gaming? Are there any other brands you would suggest?

Go for it, people focus way to much on brands when it comes to flash drives. That being said I got a deal way back when 521mb was a crapload, it was Sandisk. It worked great and even when the plastic got crushed and I covered it in tape it worked, probably still would if I hadn't of lost it...

basic anatomy

kidneys are located on the mid/lower back, below the bottom of the rib cage i believe. not very well protected compared to the more vital organs inside the rib cage.

as for the pissing blood, i know that can come as a result of kidney failure, but i dont know if getting punched there could cause that.

Whats the best item build for Troll Warlord in Dota in Warcraft 3?
Start with basic GG branches and tangos
Slowly get either bracers or wraith bands, boots of speed. Depends on bracers or wraiths depending on how many nukes other team has, nukes=braces no nukes=wraiths.
After say 3-4 bracers/wraiths get a Helm of the Dominator and Power Treads. Set treads to strenght.
Get a butterfly
Get a basher. GG
If they are really stunning you out get a black king bar. That's the most basic one I know of.
After getting basher, if the game is still going, turn the Helm into a satanic and get a buriza.
*edit* obviously sell your bracers/wraiths as you go.
*edit again* http://forums.dota-allstars.com/index.php?showtopic=121961&hl=troll+warlord+guide
That's the best overall guide I could find.

Yes.  What's up?

I'm having trouble with a mixed/superheated fluid problem. I'll try and type it up later tonight, busy today.

The two problems I each have the same problem with. In one we are given T1 and T2 for a piston with Refrigerant R134a. Then we are given the weight of the piston and the Patm.

Well good, so I find the total pressure and then I'm lost because it wants the change in volume and the change in enthalpy. T1 can be found on each graph (mixed, superheated) and T2 values has to be interpolated (I think). But I dont know how to distinguish if its super heated or mixed.

Now, I'm more inclined to go to the superheated, merely because I have nothing to calculate the property of the mixture. I think I'm missing something vital here, or I'm just lazy. Unfortunately, if I do try my method I have nothing to compare my answers too. Its homework, I like to actually learn and feel competent after it. Not unsure.

Knowing this would help me out a lot.
Title: Re: The 'Simple Questions' thread.
Post by: The Geologist on September 28, 2008, 10:56:08 am
Hmm..sounds like I'll have to get my book/notes for that one.

Are there any properties of the Refrigerant that I need to know about, or any other special caveats?  I'll take a look over what I have and see if I've got anything useful.  I get the feeling that the volume and enthalpy change can be found with the info you have, but I'm not sure of the equations at the moment.  I'll update this.

Not really, just look up its properties. I think if I use the superheated chart I just interpolate a few times to get the specific volume from the given T. I just want to know if I should say its superheated. Its the only way I can think of solving it, that doesn't mean its right.

Depends on how much force you transfer into their neck.
Give it a good stomp and yes, you will kill them.
Give is a slow but steady press (until you are basically standing on them), and there is a very good chance of paralysis (or death).

Surprisingly, the human neck is far stronger than most people think. About 1/10th (no source, and that's out of date too) of all attempted neck-snappings (like in the movies) are done wrong and merely paralyze or do as little as leave a soreness.

You could go with House of the Dead and a zapper like in irc, in total you will spend about $45 and get 3 shooting games. (Hod2-3, and the surprisingly not boring crossbow training). Other than that I honestly dont have that much money so I can't buy that many games myself so all I can tell you to get is Metriod 3 and Prince of Persia(Rushed graphics but its a fun game).

Just calculate the Saturation Temp at the given pressure, compare to Temp given. It was greater, therefore, superheated.

Well, you're talking to the guy who always does his assignments the night before they're to be turned in, so I'm no expert on the matter of steering clear of attractions when it comes to homework. But I guess you should either turn off IRC, MSN and all that, or get off the internet all together, assuming you don't need it to do your stuff.
If you're a music man, put on a relaxing track that takes your mind away from things like Soldat, girls, family issues and your right hand, making it easier for you to focus on the job.. at.. hand. You get what I mean. At least it's what I've done on the rare occasion where I actually turned things in properly. I recommend some ambient Down Tempo, if that fits your liking :)

I just take 20 minutes break, then study for 40 minutes, that way I don't get that much distracted and take a simple break.

I heard somewhere that the human mind can only really concentrate itself for around 40 minutes, so you should always take a 10 minute break at least by then. True?

I can see three things wrong with your post....

If she turned you down but does still like you she is probably playing games. Girl games aren't fun at all so I would drop her. If she turned you down and she doesn't like you drop her and move on.

You are still a pup, don't think so highly of the "love" you feel. It's more than likely just your groin talking.

@Wolf_man: Confront her. You have to find a balance between being intrusive/demanding and trying to uncover the answers you're looking for. Trying to play mind games by guessing what the other person is thinking and acting accordingly has never worked for me. What has worked is seriously yet comfortably asking for an answer.

I wouldn't listen to me if I were you, though. ;P I've only dated one girl in my entire life. And still am. For what it's worth, I dated her when we were 13, again when we were 17, and she's now seriously considering marrying me three or four years in the future. That's just how fucked up my love life is.

Yeah but if I recall from the rubidium experiment that we did in school once if you put this inwater you have 5 seconds before it blows up. Anyways, even then magnesium is not reactive enough to cause any damage unless you have >200lb chunks or something(exaggeration I know, but Mg strips will do fuck all).

Autopsies can prove all sorts of things, including your little idea here.

If by some miracle it all happened as you wanted it to and it did make your victim ill, there's a high chance they'd ask him what he ate or drank recently. They could then trace it back to the bottle of water he drank it from, get the lot number, trace all records of sales of those bottles and recall them along with anyone who purchased them. Then they'd have a fairly small list of suspects. From there it'd just be a matter of finding out which one of you had the motive or had a supply of potassium available or on hand.

Kid, stop crying, if you really are going for revenge, beat the hell out of him with your fists. Don't puss out and "LOL PRANKZ" him. I doubt you have the guts to do anything besides yell at him and run away crying.
But he already spent his lunch money on acme explosive birdseed.

I don't think it is. If a worker of any sort has a disorder that could in any way question his effectivity or capabilty, it's the employers own choise wether he wants to try and handle it or not. Of course it's another thing if said worker has been employe for some time before the disorder strikes him/her. quite a difference between firing someone because of it and just not hiring them. In Denmark certain companies are offered benefits if they take in people with mental illnesses, such as reduced tax payments, and the city will pay half of what the person is entitled to in salery. We have a few of'em at my place.

^ If the employer has reason to believe that that person's Aspergers Syndrome will have a significantly negative effect on their work and thus the business, then perhaps it won't be discrimination. But the Autistic Spectrum isn't called a spectrum for nothing; some people are so severely disabled by Autism that it may be hard for them to get a job at all, where as some people with Aspergers have some traits of it and have been diagnosed yet have no problem working with customers/social situations. For this reason it’ll be wrong for an employer to just presume that the person won’t be a good employee simply because of their AS.

Although some Autism charities (particularly American ones like Autism Speaks), would have you think that Autism and even Aspergers will always mean a life of retardation and total dependence on parents/welfare- scareing parents into giving them money for researching a "cure". Although some cases of Autism are severe enough to genuinely need those kind of charities, overall they are having negative effect by fueling discrimination.

don't eat crisps crap, eat meat, nuts or whitebread+milk - ohh you will get in shape alright

Indeed, thank you. Still, I'm looking for something more elaborate. Almost to the extent of having a one-time session with a personal trainer. However, it's a nice outline to follow.

I'm okay Kazuki. You know I've been through a lot worse than this. Like in Fisting Zone.

If you want to get back your shape, then maybe try to jog, if you hate jogging, then just at least take a 30 minutes~1hour walk with your music on or something. That'll help you.
For eating, if you eat meat alot, just make sure you eat some veggies also, like lettuce. It would be nice to avoid the fats that stick in steaks.

@Kazuki, actually I find it that common sence is the best diet. Like, don't eat unless you're really hungry. Feeling like having a snack can be easely overwon by just thinking twice about it. When you get hiome from work/school, go for a run instead of sitting down at the computer instantly, 'cause it'll make you tired just like that. When you do the cooking, don't use greasy crap like butter and stuff. There are usually lot's of healthy sideways.

I've been doing that recently, and I find it that i lose weight more than ever. :)

Yeah, haha. I never said I needed to lose weight. I said I'd like to get back into shape. More specifically, I'd like to tone my muscles and improve my cardiovascular system. My abs aren't as prominent as they used to be. I get tired rather easily because my muscles run out of oxygen when I'm doing something vigorous. Overall, my performance is worse now than it was, say, half a year ago. So I'm looking to counter that.

The reason I'm delving into it so deeply is because I'm one of those people that prefers strict guidance or else I'm unsure if what I'm doing is correct. However, I only decided to get rather serious about it today.

I've had problems with motivation in the past. There have been multiple times where I began running at a quick pace for 10 minutes daily or did three sets of push-ups and sit-ups per day. However, these normally don't last more than a couple weeks at best. I'm planning on setting multiple alarms on my phone which ring daily and remind me it's time to perform a specific exercise, because if I'm not reminded, it's like I choose not to remind myself and thus end up gradually dropping the routine.

;P I'm not as bad as Farah is. I'm 5'6" and 120lbs. Which is still rather small. So it's not like I need to lose weight. I just want to keep my body in good condition. Like I already mentioned, it's only been several hours before I decided to get serious about it, but I'm now at school, so I can't do very much research at the moment. I appreciate all the responses and I'm gonna try to accumulate all that information when I get home tonight.

I am 5'9 and weigh 160.
Only way I stay in shape is stuff around the house.
I lift a couple hundred pounds of feed daily, for the animals.
I walk a lot, due to the size of the pasture and I like to spend a couple hours a day in the woods.

Other than that, we go and get 300 bales of hay once a month (cattle hay, around 40-50 pounds/bale when packed tight) and I have to put it on the trailer, which includes throwing it over my head.

As for eating, I eat mainly meat and a lot potatoes and drink a lot of chocolate milk. :P

He's tried everything; saving it to a different file storage location, re-downloaded AE, saved it under a different quality, nada.

Has anyone with AE CS3 experienced this before, and do you know how to get past this problem? Sorry for the generalizing.

Why Mexico in particular? Ever had that Americanized kimchi that's super-hot?

If you insist on an answer: epic pain. I've done it (actually with a serrano pepper, not the hottest but up there). It was a full hour of mouth-burning action.

some idiot wants me to upload photos in the picture thread but i cant because ubuntu wont read my sd card

i put the card in and it comes up with the following:

yes ive tried googling it and yes ive tried the ubuntu forums. it looks like its leaning towards me having to reformat the card itself as i havent done that and it was previously used on windows. then again i have no idea how to do that either as everytime i look it up the answer always includes using a reformat option under system > administration - which i dont apparently have. im fairly new with ubuntu and im still just beginning to understand it properly so im recently having to ask other people for help rather than sorting it out myself which i used to do

if anyone could at least point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated

Vista and IE7?...they combine together like alcholol-based marinades and gas ovens. Even if both of them were made from the same company, one of them could cause a mutiny.

Browsers like Firefox and Opera shield better against virus and 'wares than IE7 can. If you've used that same browser for six months, it's not surprising that something bad could turn up even if you've got virus scanners and the such.

Now for my question...in your opinion, what is the best how-to-draw tutorial books or anatomy books? I've got George Bridgman's anatomy books chock-full of body sketches. They really help, but I can't really flesh out the sketches to something more animu, which is my style.

That's pretty odd. My ubuntu laptop reads SD cards just fine. What version of ubuntu are you on and how is the sd card reader attached to your computer?

My question: if a perfectly healthy human being is asleep on the ground outside, will vultures, hawks and other animal predators attempt eating him/her or can they sense when someone is alive or dead? I'm always afraid to let my tiny Yorkshire Terrier outside because there are a lot of hawks where I live. Luckily, whenever I let him out I also let my huge German Shepherd out too; he always chases away birds, possums, squirrels and dogs/cats he doesn't know when they try to come near our house.

I'd say try mounting it from the command line.

Firstly, make the folder where it should be mounted. Try /mnt/sd. sudo mkdir /mnt/sd

Second, see if you can locate the card's device name. It's probably /dev/sd something. Go to your terminal and type this: cat /dev/sd and press tab a few times until you see several things come up, then do Control-C. One of those will be the partition on your SD card. Try each with step 3, the one that works should be your card.

Now that you've got that, mount it: sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdX1 /mnt/sd
(Of course replace sdX with the device name you found in step two.)
Title: Re: The 'Simple Questions' thread.
Post by: PANZERCATWAGON on November 08, 2008, 04:26:46 pm
i did all of that and got this:

Code: [Select]
:~$ sudo mkdir /mnt/sd
:~$ cat /dev/sd
sda   sda1  sda2  sda5  sdb   sdc   sdd   sde   
:~$ cat /dev/sd
:~$ sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sda /mnt/sd
mount: /dev/sda already mounted or /mnt/sd busy
:~$ sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/sd
mount: /dev/sda1 already mounted or /mnt/sd busy
mount: according to mtab, /dev/sda1 is mounted on /
:~$ sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sda2 /mnt/sd
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda2,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so

:~$ sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sda5 /mnt/sd
mount: /dev/sda5 already mounted or /mnt/sd busy
:~$ sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdb /mnt/sd
mount: No medium found
:~$ sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdc /mnt/sd
mount: No medium found
:~$ sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdd /mnt/sd
mount: No medium found
:~$ sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sde /mnt/sd
mount: /dev/sde: can't read superblock

so i figured it was probably the file system on the card that was the problem. so i converted it to fat32 on windows and i still got the same problem. so then i typed this in and got this:

Code: [Select]
:~$ dmesg | tail

To download and install MS' Zune black and orange theme: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=75078

Thing about custom XP themes is that you have to patch one of XP's core DLL's which lets you use and install custom themes; until you do that, you can only use and install ones that are made by and signed by MS.

Okay, I've been wondering this for a while:

If you take a potato, cut it, and put over the tip of a handgun and shoot the gun, will it be silenced in any way whatsoever? This happened in a movie I saw recently and people said it was to silence it. Personally, I think it's a load of crap considering how fast the bullet flies out.

The loud sound comes from the explosion inside the chamber, more specifically it comes from the very very quick escape of gas at extremely high pressure the instant the bullet leaves the barrel, the idea is that the potato would deaden some of that pressure in the same way that a suppressor allows the gases to expand slower.

So yes, although you will leave chunks of crispy potato all over the crime scene.


Also smegma bullets "whirr" by, the only difference with supersonic is that you hear the sound after the captain becomes a watersack.

if you mean a dual core 1.6 GHZ then its well worth it to get a graphics card, if its a single core its probably not worth it.

Games might not see a huge jump in speed if they don't handle multithreading well. If you're going to play Left 4 dead (or when they upgrade the engine tf2) you will probably see a significant jump in performance. Don't get anything particularly expensive, the best cards you can get won't perform any better than an average one because your CPU can't keep up.

I just either A) Use my other computer or B) Use my mp3 player.
The upside is it's really easy and doesn't slow down the game.

simple Winamp problem

Where you see the visualization (funky image along the top of the window), I want to keep it there.  The thing is, when I shut winamp down it reverts back to the "info box", so I have to change it to visualization when I bring it back up.

so how can I make it stay like it is now..

I had that problem too, pissing me off.

maybe try the winamp forums?


Ok, there is no direct way to fix this problem, but there is a workaround:
 go to the preferences window (ctrl-p) and go down to Plug-ins, then check 'Auto execute visualization plug-in on playback', and it will start when you start playing music.

Nah, we gotta attempt to uphold at least some kinda standard here.

Anyway, I was trying to make Red Alert(the original) work on a set of computers yesterday with a couple o' friends. We got it working and all, save only one computer out of three had network access, which is wierd, 'cause we all did the exact same thing. Any suggestions on what that might be?

One thing about Linksys is the brand is owned by Cisco Systems. This company is one of the "Big Four" (along with Microsoft, Yahoo!, Google) hurting the cause of human rights by acceding to the whims of the Chinese government and getting people jailed for looking at or saying politically incorrect things online. They report relevant statistics to the Chinese, often refusing to do the same for the American government (citing privacy rights concerns). The f*ckers.

CS:S is easy mode. You're practically playing single player campaign on the original HL2 engine. TF2 is heavily cpu dependent because you've got huge battles where valve never found it necessary to optimized sprites.

Ok, let's take it from a general point of view. I.E., no specifying any particular models in the following question:

The company started out as a small firm, but they now need a network where they can access their centralized data and also the network should be able to expand as their needs grow (more clients). Scenario one was solved with a Wireless Network, which is capable of expanding, and the lack of cables makes setting up new clients less of a headache.

Now for the real one--Two years later, business has been booming, and the company has moved to a high-rise building. They have a need to occupy two floors--except the floors are eight stories apart from each other. Both floors will have their own LANs, which will need to be able to communicate with each other. The budget is higher this time, but not really enough for you to add anything big and expensive to improve the networking. Since they are handling some big clients, they need to make sure all of their data is kept secure as it leaves the two individual LANs. Because the walls of the building are not conducive to pulling new cable, they will have to run some above the ceiling in the drop space.

Now, I think the two networked LANs would have to include two points of access, one for each floor, for Wireless. And the two points will have to communicate with each other through eight stories of space between the LANs. A repeater cabling would do nicely, for cables that run over 100ft, and no loss in communications and less garbling of information.

What do you think, guys?

I got an 8GB flash drive, but suddenly, even though I erase/remove files, the space won't increase.

Am I supposed to do "Format" now? I don't want to recopy CS:S for 2 hours again...

Also, there is usually a hidden recycle bin hidden folder on flash drives, where the files you delete go so you can't see them. Try clearing your trash. If that doesn't work, have Vista show hidden files and folders and then see if there are any on your flash drive.

Right I've played Soldat for a couple of years now and finally started thinking about moving up the food chain; mapmaking.

Obviously I'm a complete and utter newbie at it so I'll need a mapmaking tool that is simple but at the same time can make effective maps. I ask because there seems to be more than one, which doesn't help at all. If there was just one I'd be able to cope, but there isn't, so my question is, which?

And further more, once my mapmaking skills develop, should I move onto another maker, or just stick with the same one?

Cheers,
Luke.

What browser / OS? Almost definitely no. Even if you used one of those things where you recover deleted files, like Recuva (http://www.recuva.com/), you probably couldn't find them all since a browser usually has dozens of files that get rewritten (and written to) by it every time you load a page.

You get rid of the oil but not what oil contains.

I suspect that the odor is caused by fish enzymes. So do what jrgp said(wash in hot water)to denature the peptides, or use something basic/acidic, or highly reactive to break protein.(like H2O2 and eh...)

I need to clean this. It's been my all time favorite keyboard, but after years and years of advanced wear and tear, it's become tainted with grease, crumbs, bodily fluids, dead skin, and god knows what else. My spillage of orange juice on the numeric pad this morning seemed like the last straw: it killed the spacebar and a few of the letter keys. How can I make it usable again without breaking it?

Believe it or not, I just put them in the dish washer. Its a concept that sounded odd to me at first but works very well.  Of course, I would not suggest using it for at least 2 days after. I usually leave it out in the air for a week after. Then again I have 3 keyboards laying around.
Title: Re: The 'Simple Questions' thread.
Post by: iDante on March 29, 2009, 04:36:03 am
Just flip the thing over, unscrew it, and clean everything. Just not any chips you find, leave those.
Or pop out the keys and clean them individually + what's underneath.

I have heard of putting keyboards in the dishwasher, never tried before though.

in america college (known as community college) and university are taken, relatively, at the same ages. both straight after high school

in europe only college comes straight after high school and then university after college. however there are some special cases (if you are really smart or a course is different) were you go straight to university after high school, but thats only once in a jillion years usually

Quote from: Wikipedia
A few months before his death, Ledger had finished filming his penultimate performance, as the Joker in The Dark Knight. At the time of his death, on 22 January 2008, he had completed about half of his work performing the role of Tony in Terry Gilliam's forthcoming film The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.[/url]

Huh.... I got a question about excercise. I jogged a bit in the rain today. I tend to jog when it rains, because it kinda cheers me up running in the rain. I've been doing this for at least thirty times if I remember it. My friends say that I'm going to catch a serious cold.

It just sparkled my mind and had I just had to ask:

So far, I never got it, but is it true? And if it is, does it mean that I have an incredible immunity?

Actually it's been proven that it's not so much the cold weather that cause you to catch a flu or whatever, it's the sudden exposure to the warm environment of your house. So make sure not to crank the heat up when you get home, change to some dry clothes asap, and let your body relax. Or at least that's what I heard.

I thought you get a cold when you're exposed to cold weather because your body focuses most of its energy keeping you warm and the immune system is left weaker, making you more vulnerable to bacteria?
Title: Re: The 'Simple Questions' thread.
Post by: iDante on April 14, 2009, 07:14:06 pm
Ok, being cold has absolutely nothing to do with catching a cold. Nor does being wet. This lie was made because people tend to get colds during the winter, not because of the cold itself (though being cold reduces one's immune system somewhat), but mostly because of the fact that we stay inside and grouped together more in the cold. Therefore, it's easier to spread it.

Or because everyone else in cold weather has the cold and they're sneezing left and right all over the place and the cold weather helps it survive in the air. Studies have shown that am average sneeze can travel faster than the speed of a bullet and go roughly 13 feet.

Doesn't Razer give a 3 year guarantee (under strict circumstances)?

You never know for sure if they will hold longer, but they will be better. I personally love my Logitech MX518, I've tried the Logitech G5 and the Razer diamondback as well and I just liek the MX518 more. Here's a mice benchmark (http://www.esreality.com/?a=longpost&id=1265679&page=1) (scores on page 21 and 22) but the most important about mice is that they have a good shape and fit your hand nicely.
I bought my MX518 at 28th of april 2007, it still works fine and I use my PC a lot. (can't promise that yours will stay alive that long as well)

How do you mean "promote"?

The hamachi ip isnt tied to your ip adress, and is always static.
If i understood your question.
Title: Re: The 'Simple Questions' thread.
Post by: echo_trail on May 03, 2009, 02:56:18 am
Hamachi allows you to create a LAN connection online. I was gonna use it on BF2 with some mates, but when I search for games none are listed, apparently because my normal IP overlaps the Hamachi one. In order to see these lan games online, I need hamachi to be the dominating IP, and there's a way to promote it over your regular IP. However, when I do that, I lose my internet connection, which is required to run hamachi - dilemma.

Now, on Vista you're able to promote your Hamachi IP without loss of internet. How do I make this apply for XP as well?

@ echo
Try this:

On the Advanced menu, click Advanced Settings, and then click the Adapters and Bindings tab.

Move Hamachi to the top to select it as the primary adapter
In the Connections area, select the Hamachi connection that you want to move higher in the list. Use the arrow buttons to move the connection to the top.


It works for me without loosing the internet conenction.
And make sure that you and your friends are connected all to the same network.

EDIT:
Quote from: echo_trail
Ello!
I read through the FAQ, but couldn't locate an answer for my problem. The problem is I don't really know much about this stuff, so it may just be written in fancy programming words, and I missed it. If that's the case, please redirect me to the related topic.

Anyway, I've been trying to play BF2 with a couple of mates, two of which run Vista and the rest of us XP. We wanted to establish a LAN connection online, hence the use of Hamachi. This is where the problems began to show. It seems my windows(XP) will only recognize my hamachi IP if I promote it over my regular IP. However, when I do that(and after rebooting) I seem to lose all internet connection, rendering the very idea of Hamachi obsolete in the first place. The wierd thing is, with Windows Vista promoting the Hamachi IP does not seem to cut off the internet connection.

So, I asked about it on this other forum I attend to, and this one bloke said he got it to work on XP, just by promoting the Hamachi IP. he couldn't say if He'd done anything different though. So what to do, I looked it up on wiki (http://logmeinwiki.com/wiki/Hamachi:Red_Alert_2).

I thought maybe it was cause I didn't install the client protocol, as portrayed in point 6 and 7. However, when I click it, it says I lack the drivers for the install.

So I'm sadly stuck with it. I was hoping one of you lads may know how to fix this.
Thanks in advance,

I burnt an album onto a cheap blank CD (TDK 80 Compact disc, album was downloaded) but the stereo didn't play it it just says "no disc" and skips to the next CD, the audio on the CD was MP3 @ 320kbps (the stereo reads MP3 files)  The CD is readable by computers though

Probably a picture drawn by someone to represent a character in a fairy tale.

I'd say it's the Queen (disguised as an old woman) from Snow White. Evidence: The apple (probably poisoned as in the fairy tale Snow White, and also probably the only fairy tale with an evil old woman holding an apple), and a spider on the top of her head and a 5-sided star thingy (which shows she's evil).

I disconnected my Samsung P2 during a file transfer, I think it was to do with deleting about 400mb of files.  It now says "1.6GB free" instead of 2GB.  It's a 4gb device with exactly 2gb of music on it, so as far as windows is concerned that 400mb no longer exists.  Should I format it or something?
Check for hidden files (also, set to view protected operating system files) as it might be a virus.
I would suggest backing up the music and formating the usb stick.

Also, what type of files were those you were transferring?

I was deleting a zipped folder containing a game, about 400mb

im pretty sure it had to do with the disconnecting though, I have checked all the folders on the device and they all add up to exactly 2gb.

(also, set to view protected operating system files)

how? :P

Open a Windows folder window (explorer.exe). Tools > Options > one of the tabs, I don't remember which. Probably "View" > Check the boxes "Show Hidden Files" and uncheck "Hide Protected Operating System Files" and it'd also be useful to uncheck "Hide File Extensions For Known File Types" as that's a constant annoyance.

Ycopy seems exactly like what you want.

It is a nifty little program which has a nice feature that explorer should. If you are copying files and at some point, there is a file which can not be copied for whatever reason, it simply skips it and lets you deal with it later, rather then waiting for your input.

Make sure the two drives are exactly the same size and both plugged in. Make sure the second one has no partitions. There might be an option for it in your bios, and there might not. If there isn't, you'll have to go out and purchase a raid card. The tricky part is getting it to copy over your current drive to the second to build the raid, and not wiping both to create the raid. I suggest you try to find a tutorial for this on google.

My computer has been freaking out lately. Namely it's been freezing up for 10+ seconds at seemingly random times (usually ~3 minutes apart), as well as displaying things wrongly, mostly fonts (attached image is just one symptom).
It does this on both windows and linux, making me think it's a hardware issue.

The computer is 6-7 years old, so if this means I'll need a new box then it won't be the end of the world.

it's not sad. It's a s**tty tv show that's just hopelessly overrated. Everyone who doesn't know about it is better of remaining so.

Thought I was the only one who thought so. The entire season is basically the same episode moments repeated endlessly:
1. A confounding case comes in.
2. House initially refuses and is eventually convinced that it would be interesting to psychoanalyze the patient or other doctors so he takes the case OR House takes the case quickly and everyone is stunned, but he only does it so he can psychoanalyze the patient or other doctors.
3. Dramatic undertones abound throughout. There's some backstory going on, but it consists of close-up montages of the actors doing their best to look like they aren't bored and brief moments of amazingly stupid life decisions.
4. The patient gets worse despite the best efforts of the doctors involved. Repeat as many times as necessary while the doctors slowly learn more and more about the patient, their house, and their secrets.
5. House brilliantly finds the cure through some controversial measures and cures the patient. The patient explains all to solve the psychological mystery surrounding the case, thus setting a philosophical standpoint that House publicly disagrees with but secretly knows is true.
6. Montage and surprising character development.
7. Shitty indie music.
8. End episode.

Post by: iDante on August 01, 2009, 06:33:47 pm
You forgot the part where Cuddy or Wilson says something totally unrelated that makes House realize the answer to the case.

Though it's still an amazing show.

Anyway, I'm something of a movie lover myself, and I tell myself I have a pretty neat collection. However, lately I've grown bored with what I have, and I need some input as to what films I should be looking to add to my list here. First off, I don't like b-movies in generel. Neither am I into Horror, musicals, romance or sportfilms.

Got any suggestions?

It's just, I think I've seen the classics, at least in the genre of action.. Rambo is awesome, but only First Blood Part 1, I think. Or at least that's the best. Anyway, I've got the trilogy, and the last one really isn't worth much. Anything sci-fi spacey you could think of?

Let's say you have a 10 inch glass tube that's thin enough to pull water up 5 inches due to capillary action.  Great, right?  Now, let's cut that tube down to 4 inches.  Does the water overflow and spill out the top, or does it just stay put, having nothing to climb?

Putting Soldat (as it is now) on the Wii is impossible; lemme explain why:

1) Soldat is written and compiled for the x86 or x64 cpu architecture; the Wii uses PowerPC type. That completely kills any Soldat support right off the bat.

2) Soldat requires DirectX, which _only_ runs on Windows.

3) Even though I can get Linux [custom Debian derivative] running on my Wii and can run various kinds of homebrew etc, Wine (which has some luck at getting Soldat to run on Linux) only works on x86 and x64 systems, not PowerPC (as I mentioned in #1)

So... 100% impossible. :( Only way it would work is through a complete rewrite (http://opensoldat.u13.net).

If person A marries person B and person A goes back in time with documents to when person B is a teenager and she consents and they have sex is it still illegal?

"Emo" doesn't exist. Yous don't hate "Emos". You think you do, because that makes you a little bit cooler than you actually are.

You have no real reason to hate "Emos". So what if "Emos" cut, or express their emotions out loud. They're absolutely harmless, sure there's some that seem to over exaggerate there pain. But is it really an exaggeration? Whether you believe it or not, cutting helps fix the pain one might feel inside. So what if they don't even have any pain, and just doing it for attention or to "fit in". Once again, it's completely harmless, and is it that wrong of them to want to fit in, or the only way they can let people know something is wrong, is by self harming. There's more junkies in the world who cure their pain with taking drugs. There's "gangstuhs" that like to gang bash kids smaller than them, just to make themselves feel better.

When you compile a list of the worst kind of people in the world, assuming you're not a complete f*ckhead. You'll find that "Emos" don't deserve the sh_t they receive.

Really. Why do you "hate" them. Be creative, don't use the same pathetic excuses that make no sense whatsoever. If you dig deep enough into that heartless soul of yours, you'll realize you are wrong.

P.S. That was not directed at anyone in a personal manner. It's just pathetic, the sentences some people seem irresistible to say. Plus, I don't want to go to far into this. Because it's certain to turn into an all-out-brawl, everyone versus me. ;D

Why do their fans hate it when you say they are emo? I just find it hard to understand why they elicit so much hate.

Emo. It's a style of dress. If you've carried it to the next level, you are depressed and dressing unique is some odd way of expressing yourself. I think that definition has been rubbed in the dirt already... I've never discussed this with "real emo's" though, so I can't make any further analysis

its a natural hate, the same kind like against homosexual or fat people. As i see it, people feel agressive toward any weakness, and each of this group may be seen as weak and pathetic. This is why people closer to natural state feel agressive toward them. And i admit, i feel that too, i wouldn't like being around them, its completely natural, no matter if you like it or not

If that doesn't work (Although chances that it works are 90%) try getting ESET, I've had something similar only that it showed a red background on my screen, with the anthrax sign on it, saying my PC is infected...And when I clicked it it sent me to a page saying I need to download some software for 100$ (Yeah right, I'm a fucking bank ain't I?) to get rid of it, I could tell the site was fake, so I ran ESET after reformatting from scratch and it caught it in mere seconds.

If his main problems are viruses (which appear they are) then defragmenting will help little, since all it does is speed up hard drive reads/writes.

However, if he has a shitload of files and hasn't defragmented in a long time, taking the time defrag now will make the virus scan go faster.

And another one.. as a kid i used to watch this cartoon on tv about a group of teens, that crossed through a portal into another world from a funpark, I think it was. This new world or dimension was sort of a fantasy D&D place, and as such they were each given an item with an appropiate power. One was given an invisibility cloak, another had a bow that shot arrows of light and another had this staff that unfolded itself into different shapes, if i remember correctky. There were more, but I can't recall them all. In this worl they had to fight the bad guy, obviously.

Try MSN 7.5 or 8.0 echo.

Those were the latest ones before WLM was released, i dont see why you would want to roll back really.  I think Windows bought MSN messenger which is why Windows Live was created (based on MSN messenger) along with the other Windows Live branches (which I think also consumed Hotmail, now called Windows Live Hotmail, aswell as MSN spaces now being called Windows Live Spaces)

Ever since i switched to this new fancy piece of junk, it keeps giving me error reports whenever I log in. I can use it, but it's annoying. Also, it keeps telling me to get the latest version of flashplayer, which I have, but it doesn't seem to recognize it or whatever.

Besides, the layout is not exactly sexy. I liked the old simple one.

You might wanna try Miranda IM. It supports all of those protocols including IRC. Not all of them are included by default (out of the ones you listed - only MSN, YIM, AIM and IRC), but they're easy to fiind on Miranda's plugin site.
Miranda IM is mostly plugin-based, so you'll need to spend some time messing with a large number of settings and plugins to make it suit your personal taste. But if that doesn't scare you - I think you'll like it.

Look at the "Users Online" at the bottom of the page. I see " 44 Guests, 12 Users (16 Spiders, 1 Hidden)"

I am wondering, what are the "spiders"?

EDIT:
I'm using a new version of MSN (Windows Live Messenger), build 14.0.8089.726 . It's got this extremely annoying feature of having to see the layout of whoever I'm speaking with - I would honestly prefer it if I could only see my own layout like in older versions.

Any way to make it possible to see only my own layout rather than being forced to see my contacts' layouts in conversations?

Before you suggest that I use an old version, note that when I tried to sign in with an old version(8.5), I get forced to update, else I couldn't sign in. So damned annoying.

I don't mind alternatives to Windows Live as long as it works like Windows Live version 8.5.

Nevermind, I just figured out how.

How much ram (total) will 32bit Windows 7 professional be able to utilize? (as opposed to 64bit) and does it include video ram?  (also, anything on CPU speed?)

is it still just 4gb and under for 32 and 4gb+ for 64?

I think 32bit RAM cap was like 2GB? Don't quote me on that exact number, but I know for sure that 32bit won't be able to take advantage of 4GB at all. GPU RAM isn't affected by memory cap.
Title: Re: The 'Simple Questions' thread.
Post by: Hair|Trigger on November 06, 2009, 05:21:22 pm
Well according to the stuff i've managed to find out so far, windows 7 at least supports 4gb of ram with 32bit, but it's "closer" to 3.4 or something due to some other hardware allocations (which i'm assuming means the video ram)

Edit: okay, it looks like it'll support up to 4gb of ram, but if you have 4gb of ram installed it will take away your video ram amount from that total (making only ~3.5gb available if you have 512mb graphics)
Title: Re: The 'Simple Questions' thread.
Post by: croat1gamer on November 06, 2009, 05:54:05 pm
32 bit supports 4 gigs, no exceptions, be it whatever os you name.
The thing it that the graphics card has also its own RAM (aka. video RAM), which is included in the 4 gigs.

As far as benefits go, you're getting more out of your 64 bit capable processor. Applications that are designed for the 64 bit cpu architecture will run faster/better.

umm, No. The video ram is used exclusively by the video card, not the rest of the system. As a matter of fact, when/if that runs out, the video card borrows ram from the rest of the system instead. But video ram never actually gets added to the system ram.

You are probably referring to computers which have integrated graphics.

I meant that 4gigs on a 32 bit os's are the maximum, and both VRAM and RAM are included so if you have 4gigs of ram and a not integrated graphics card, they just wont recognize the rest.

EDIT: So I might not actually need the dictionary add-on. It seems there's supposed to be an onboard dictionary on the computer. I remember I used to have it enabled on my old stationary. It would switch on automatically when I started writing english. I know I could always just set up my keyboard to english, but there are certain letters in the Danish alphabet that doesn't show on the english keyboard, so that's nt exactly preferrable.

Most laptops [name brand ones by HP/Dell/etc] are generally proprietary and aren't designed to be upgraded. RAM perhaps. These computers are generally not worth trying to fix with replacement parts, especially mobos. Send them in or get another one.
More "boutique" laptops like the ones by Clevo ARE designed to be modifiable; you CAN replace the mobo on your own if you feel like it.

Oh, umm, s**t.

However, if your laptop is new enough to still get free/cheap hardware support from the manufacturer and they're willing to replace parts, they might replace the motherboard with an equivalent for free. (assuming you didn't break it deliberately)

But as far as upgrades go, Espie is 100% correct.

Well, if you really feel the need to install XP, get a valid install cd with a legit license and reformat your drive and install it. As for the drivers... here's where it gets tricky. Laptops usually require lots of them, and you need to make sure you install them in the right order, otherwise it'll get f**ked and you'll need to start over again.

Concerning that quicksilver is just quicksilver and has no magical powers and that a drowned body won´t adduct anything but decomposition it´s just not possible.

The odds of having Microsoft do anything for you directly is actually less than nil, unless you work there.

Ok so I remembered one last thing.

There's this partition on my HD called Factory Image, with a folder called Recovery in it. There is a warning message stopping me from going into it cause I might damage it etc. I suppose this would be able to install the OS, but I have never noticed any programs as mentioned by Hair Trigger.

How would I go about getting this to shoot over to a new HD?

Yeah, that's what manufacturers call a "Recovery Partition." See if you can find any information relating to its use on your computer brand's site.

You might be able to install a second drive in the system, boot to that partition in your old shitty drive, and use it to install blista on your new drive.

If you cant find any software on your computer you can probably go to your manufacturer's website and download the utilities (which might include a lot of screwing around, but you can uninstall it once you've burned your DVD(s))

Alternatively, I suggest you upgrade to Windows 7..

Then I´ve got a question now: "Isn´t it just crazy to be such a clean freak?" I mean, I do sports and just take one shower a day. I don´t feel bad because of it.


Just by the way: Mercury is great. But not Freddy.

That's pretty disgusting. On the days you do sports you should shower twice. Once after sports, and once as you would regularly.

Look, if you know you're gonna be around people, the decent thing to do is shower when you wake up, and then again after sports if that's on the agenda. Of course you're excused, Graham, since you live in the south.

So I seem to be getting somewhere with this. A quick search on the compaq website found this (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=c00814731&lang=en).

Step 2 on all the options says "remove any recently added internal hardware". I have changed the PSU, Graphics Card (from on-board to an 8600) and added some RAM. I suppose I would just need to uninstall the drivers for the GFX card, as the other two don't use specific drivers (?), so would that mean I would need to find and install drivers for the on board or would it be enough just to unplug the GFX card?

Also, the instructions don't make any mention of selecting which drive to install to, which would make me think it would just go straight onto the crapped out HD, or is there something in the actual windows setup, which the instructions say will start up after the computer restarts?

Alternatively, I suggest you upgrade to Windows 7..

Maybe, although I have never had any problems with vista itself. But it does sound like a lot less hassle.

From what I've read and my limited testing of Win7 (under a vm) is that it's much better, faster, reliable, and more visually appealing. Win/win/win/win! situation. Go for it. Getting cheap installs of Win7 might be cheaper than Vista.

So I have my new HD installed and all, now all I need to do is get to have everything on it.
All the other solutions are annoying, and I found yet another way to get it working how I want it, basically clone the hard drive.

Anyone know of a good program to use? There are plenty of programs out there, but I don't want to go through them all to find one that does a straight clone, from HD to HD, no fluffing around making backups and then restoring them to another HD.

You guys have been helping me along the way, and I really appreciate all your efforts. I like messing around with computers, and fixing problems without taking it to a rip off computer shop that puts all these crap programs and messes around with your homepage is much better.

So yeah:

Sounds like BS, but then again, the difference between those two is that the room temperature water is still and it has very little particle movement as opposed to the boiling water where the particles are moving constantly and thus able to change and adapt to a different temperature faster.

I'm not sure, but I dont really think so. 100c to 0c faster than 20c to 0c? Bah.

Why do batteries leak?

I always put at least one battery in backwards when I won't be using the torch for a while, so it can't accidentally be turned on and drain the batteries completely. Is this a good idea, or can it lead to battery leakage?

Are there ways to minimize the chance of a battery leak?

Don't do that. It probably isn't the cause, but it's generally a bad idea. Just tape over the on switch or something (or just take the batteries out).

Usually when batteries leak it's because they are cheap or get stored in bad conditions (wet or hot). The best way to avoid this is to A) buy better batteries, and B) store them in dry, cool places.

The only times it's happened to me though is when I mixed rechargeable and non-rechargeable batteries. Be sure all the batteries in something are the same type.

What would be the best way for me to block all but one program from accessing the internet, but so that I can easily turn it on or off, as I have a slow connection, and want to get the best out of it while I play games.

If it is really bad I usually go through task manager > performance tab > resource monitor and see what is hogging the connection in the network section, then go about finding out how to stop it, but it can be a major pain in the ass.

I was thinking maybe some kind of temporary additional firewall program, is there something that can do this?

And if you were going for German it's: frohliche weinechten/frohes weinachten.

My 500gb HDD is 465gb.

I think it is all to do with spare sectors and shit, I remember that from somewhere.
Every hard drive is divided into lots of sectors, and when one goes bad, it will attempt to shift the data to a backup sector, and change the reference to the new sector.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
Title: Re: The 'Simple Questions' thread.
Post by: VijchtiDoodah on December 26, 2009, 12:24:39 am
It's because the companies producing the hard drives use the decimal system to measure gigabytes while operating systems use the binary system.

For hard drive companies, one gigabyte = 10003 bytes
For operating systems, one gigabyte = 10243 bytes

Thus the difference. You lose 0.068 of every gigabyte you're sold.

Buy components separately (its fine as it isnt a premade configuration), then connect them/get someone to do it for you.

You can get a much better configuration than a premade one, but you would need to find someone who is good with hardware to consult you if the price/usefulness ration is good (internet forums are fine).

Not really a fan of the way it has settings organized. Way too many menus and sub-menus.
Though I have to admit it's decent. I guess they've made quite a lot of changes since the last time I used VLC.

Still, other players are good too and I'm sure there are users who prefer using programs other than VLC. So for those users codec packs will still be helpful.

Actually my issue for now is that one of my HD movies (bitrate is like 11Mbps) isn't playing smoothly, i'm trying different software to get it to work but before I go ahead and install K-Lite I want to be sure it won't conflict with my current codec pack (CCCP)

Also I am using KMPlayer for now because VLC and MPC don't seem to handle HD movies quite as well, at least not H.264

I dont think so, I tested it on a 2.0GHz dual core with an 8600GT 512MB and 4GB of RAM and it still lagged, thats what lead me to assume there was something wrong with the codecs I was using. 

Compressing it from 11Mbps to 6000kbps has fixed my performance though, so I guess i'll have make do with that for now.

Title: Re: The 'Simple Questions' thread.
Post by: L[0ne]R on January 23, 2010, 07:27:03 pm
There are, but they still don't work for most games. :/ You can still give it a try though.

3D-Analyse - http://www.3dfxzone.it/dir/tools/3d_analyze/download/
A more advanced program that can force some effects into 3D apps that don't support it.

DXWND - http://appaholic.co.uk/2007/10/16/dxwnd-force-almost-anything-into-a-windowed-mode/
There are different versions of that program. The one I linked to seems to have more settings than the one I use, but mine looks a bit different and works well with some of Blizzard's games (Starcraft and some others), so I've attached my version as well.

"I don't think there's going to be any one way to force programs into windowed mode. I think that the two modes are handled a bit differently. If a program isn't explicitly designed to run windowed, it just won't, and if it were somehow forced to, it would likely crash."

Also, try Any Video Converter. Not only it's a great video converter, but it too can download youtube videos.

[ http://youtubedownload.altervista.org ] downloads video directly as it is from youtube, so it preserves whatever frame size and quality the original youtube video had.

Not sure if Any Video Converter allows to set size and quality (for some reason it bugged for me and doesn't want to download videos anymore, so I can't check), but even if it doesn't - you can still use it to convert downloaded youtube videos to whatever size and quality you want.

If it doesn't open in VLC either VLC is not installed properly (which I doubt) or it isn't a valid FLV file.

I'm trying to finally defragment my hard drive. But no matter what program I try - it can't defragment it below a certain level. I tried at least 3 apps, and 2 of them couldn't defragment it to less than 15%. I've got best results with Defraggler, which left only 7% fragmentation.

But why can't I defragment my hard drive to as low as 0-3% fragmentation?

Same here, I always have at least 1-3% fragmentaion left no matter how many times I defrag.
I think there's a point beyond which the PC won't defrag the files.

It's less/not addicting and won't completely skullf**k your body with cancer and other detriments like tobacco very well will.

So yes, it's safe(r).

(in moderation it's no different than alcohol)

edit: to clarify, I'm referring to joints/brownies vs cigarettes/cigars.

Let's be fair here - cigarettes and tobacco products hurt your lungs because of all the other chemical compartments put in them, while cannabis lacks these. Effects are vastly different though.

If there is no filter the cannabis is far harder on your lungs, as most cigarettes do have filters. However, the nicotine and other such junk in cigarettes is much more addictive and harmful than THC or w/e is in weed.

Okay, great, but do you know the "rules" for abbreviating it? My reason for this question is that I have a character in a story I'm writing named Salvatore, and everyone calls him Tore.  I'm so used to the dialogue flow with a single syllable that it was a little bit of a shock to think that "Tore" may be a two-syllable word, and I'd like to preserve my original intention if possible.

There is an SD card reader on the front of my case.

When I put an SD card in it, I can read it fine, but I cannot delete anything in any way (delete, cut or format), also tried with the handy tool unlocker, but that didn't work.

The physical lock tab on the SD card is not in the lock position.

My guess is that it is because it has sharing turned on for some reason, but I can not turn sharing off as the share button under properties > Sharing is greyed out.

How can I get the reader un-shared or some other non pain in the ass way to get stuff deleted. At the moment I can only delete picures through the camera that I use the SD card with, which is slow.
Title: Re: The 'Simple Questions' thread.
Post by: jrgp on February 12, 2010, 05:21:09 pm
I don't see what sharing would have anything to do with it. Maybe the card reader is owned by a user other than you and you need admin privileges to do anything non-read only to it?
Title: Re: The 'Simple Questions' thread.
Post by: chutem on February 12, 2010, 06:34:46 pm
Ok you were right about the sharing.

Whenever I try to put stuff on the card or format it, it tells me the drive is write protected. Nothing in the properties of the reader relates to any kind of protection, so how would I turn it off?

Post by: L[0ne]R on February 13, 2010, 07:27:56 pm
I can only think of permission settings which don't allow you to delete or modify the files. Not sure if in this case it's the same as sharing.

If you have Windows XP Pro - go to Control Panel-->Folder Options. There switch to "View" tab, scroll down to the bottom of the list and uncheck "Use simple file sharing".
This will enable advanced settings for file and folder permissions.

Let me know if you need further info on how to change permissions.
Title: Re: The 'Simple Questions' thread.
Post by: chutem on February 13, 2010, 07:39:30 pm
@jrgp: There is no write protect switch, pulled apart right down to the chip board.

@L[one]R: Using vista currently. Not the same option, but a similar one called use file sharing wizard, turned it off. The only way it seems to set permissions is through properties>sharing>advanced sharing, but even if I set the permissions for everyone to full control, it wont let me do anything other than copy off. Also, the security tab (where I would normally go to change permissions) is not there.

So even after that you still can't use it on your computer? I get a feeling that it really could be the problem with the card reader. Or your computer.

Look for your microphone's brand name and model number, and then go to company's site and look for drivers (usually in "downloads" section or something).
Download a driver for your model (make sure it's compatible with windows 7 though. Usually there are separate drivers for different systems) and install it like any other program.

Make sure the mic works: test it on another computer or use a linux live cd to test it.
Try a different mic port if you have one.
Play with sound settings.
Reinstall drivers.
Do microphone dance around computer while chanting ancient egyptian songs of death.

It's a build-in microphone, if that requires a diffferent approach.  Got it working somewhat, but I had to turn the boosters up all the way, and it still gives a weird noice and a general feeling that it doesn't function as it should.

Another question then.. Ever since I formatted my computer, I no longer have the program I used to operate things such as my webcam. It will turn on automatically with skype and such, but I can't adjust the brightness and stuff whenever I'm using it without a program that allows me to do it directly(such as skype). Are there any universal programs out there that'll let you do this?

I am looking for something that I would plug in a wall outlet and that it would give me a specific voltage that I could change with simply turning a nob, but like something that has wires that I could attach to a little electric motor for example and then simply detach the wire and change to an LED or an other motor perhaps, but yeah how the hell would that be named?

Another question

Is it possible to charge and use a Garmin Nuvi 255 to a pc? because when I connect it it shows up an image that shows the GPS is connected to the pc but is there a way to work with it while connected to the pc because I cant turn it on when its unpluged from the cars "lighter" even after letting it uo for like 45 min +

Uh, I'm not sure if I understood you right, but I think what you need is simply a "power adapter".
In stores there should be models that have switches that change polarity and voltage, as well as different types of plugs.

This is what guitar players actually believe. I know plenty of guitar players, only one has a chance in it ever being anything but a hobby and he has had to sacrifice in every facet of his life for that. Games and instruments are equal hobbies. Also durr hurr micro$oft isn't a useful argument. Some people like playing with controllers, other don't. That is the only real argument for not buying a console besides funds.

I disagree. The scope of career choices offered by learning to play an instrument (soundtrack composer, live performer, teacher, etc.) is much larger than the spectrum offered from playing video games; especially considering that the actual act of playing video games as a hobby has very little to do with development in terms of skill transition.

I have:
A1:3000 A2:2000 A3:1000
B1 B2 B3

B1 refers to A1 to return 3000. I sort row A to get:

A1:1000 A2:2000 A3:3000
B1 B2 B3

Now B1 returns 1000, but I want it to continue to return 3000. To "follow" the sort, in other words.

Is it possible to refer to headers, then use those since I'm sorting the headers with the data?

Actually the reason why Windows is so inflexible when it comes to changing settings is that it isn't entirely built upon packages which can be installed/removed/reconfigged with ease (as are linux/bsd/solaris/mac/etc), and it still follows the design and theory as the very early versions of Windows (despite all the times they changed paths around), as MS is too lazy (or has decided to not) do a full rewrite using modern techniques.

So yeah, they're trying to maintain s**tty, ancient code, and as such the only way to make major changes is to reinstall completely.

I found a number of different apps and almost got the joystick emulator working, but all of the GamePort input/output ports were already taken by motherboard, so I couldn't install the virtual joystick.

Luckily, I found another program that doesn't use the GamePort and creates its own virtual port instead. The programs are called PPJoystick (which is the virtual joystick port & driver) and PPMouse (which is the mouse-to-joystick converter).
They're hard to find, so I suggest you get them now in case you'll ever need them: http://personne.newmail.ru/PPJoystick/

They installed without any problems on Windows XP Pro (SP3). I tested it in HoverAce and it works like a charm. <3

It's fine until it starts pushing 50C. But I'm even not too sure about that.

I do a lot of video encoding (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MEncoder) (.avi to native dvd and vice verca) and when I do like 4 of them at once, my dual core amd athlon 64 gets up to around 67C (4 year old stock heatsink/fan). Nothing noticeable happens, but when the encoding is finished it goes back to around 30'ish and all is fine.

I really wouldn't be too worried about CPU temps. Being careful with hard drive temps is a different story though.

Are there alternatives to using explorer to copy large amounts of data across media?

Upgrading to win7, I copied ~120 GB of files to backup, but the info box said there was only 18 GB, in the end it copied it all, but once it had done the first 18 GB it just sat there copying the rest saying '5 seconds remaining' for over an hour. Also all the boxes that come up asking me for permission to copy things (!@#!@$!@$) meant I had to check it frequently. Thirdly the speed always seems to drop and drop and drop until it is at really low speeds over time for no apparent reasons.

On a possibly related note, I tried copying 4.36 GB to a DVD-R. Went fine for a few seconds (700 KB/sec) but then it drops to around 70 KB/sec, and unlike copying between other media, it doesnt do anything (left it overnight and nothing more had been copied). Managed to get a smaller ~2 GB file onto another disc, but popping it back in after it was done, windows asked me to format it as though it was a fresh disc.

Would something like Nero work, or is it a hardware problem?

P.S: I have given up on the SD card reader, for now at least. Win 7 has the same problem

In fact I'll download and install it on any computer I have from now on, since it gives you loads of decent, detailed information, and is very userfriendly. The last is important when you're as incompetent with computers as I am. I recommend you all take a look at it(those of you who run windows, that is).

Oh, and this is a random screen I found on google, so don't give me that hacker attitude if you see anything you can use. ;) I will of course edit the pic if something is in any way illegal.

im looking for a older game, not really to play it, just to get it out of my mind.

when i was a kid, i liked hunting games, the free roam aspect and all, cuz i was too young for GTA. but i remember seeing a hunting game, with the roles of the hunter swapped, the deer hunting the man and man fleeing. i visioned it as free roam as a kid and thought it was awesome. searching "deer hunter" or "deer hunting man game" does not help xD

Okay guys, I finally got my new guitar! And the best thing that has (okay quit the best thing) ever happened to me in my whole life: I got it for free from my guitar teecher who bought a new one and now I can borrow his old one as long as he doesn´t destroy his new one. Since he´s of the more careful kind I guess it´s like he just gave it to me ;)

It´s a Hohner ST 59 and looks brandnew. I already got new guitar strings, but I need to cut the overlaying part off. Well, here´s a picture of my electric guitars:

I downloaded Fallout 3, and have been playing it non stop. Now, I want to buy it off Steam to get the DLC's. Rather then torrent them I feel Bethesda have earned they money, so I will buy it.

2 questions.
1: I have about 11 mods installed. Will I be able to add them to the steam version as easily as the normal one?

2:Its E50 on Steam. Does anyone know if its cheaper on disc. Its the Game of the year edition with the DLC's.

2. Look around and maybe you will find it cheaper. However I always choose the steam version since I don't have worry about losing that disc.

The Steam version of the game and the retail version have the exact same process when installing mods, as far as I am aware. Only difference is the Fallout 3 folder is within the Steamapps folder.i found this answer via google

Also it should be noted that you can buy it retail for incredibly cheap, then put the CD key into Steam and it will be added to your account. I did this for Unreal Tournament 3.

If you put it on Steam, it's tied to your account rather than your computer. So if you spontaneously move 1700 miles away and your computer is elsewhere, you can just install Steam and your games.

That sort of thing only happens to me, though ;_;

Steam is also very useful if you get a new computer, have a fast internet connection, and don't feel like having to scrounge for lost game install cd's to get all your games. Plus I've recently started loving having a single program manage and update all my games at once! (the half life variants plus a few others)

Firefox is having trouble displaying the main images in a saved webpage from psd.tutsplus.com (any article/tutorial) saved as web page, complete.

The sad thing is Internet Explorer displays them flawlessly.

It is possible to get a main image to display by refreshing while viewing the spot it should be in, but that is very annoying.

Anyone come across this problem/know a solution or workaround?

Version 3.6.3 of firefox and 8 for IE.

[edit] I think it is because there is some code around the images to make it harder to copy the images out, of which there is seperate code for IE, due to the failness of it. Can I make the code think it is being displayed by IE to get around it?

What is the common terminology for the belief that the human race should be annihilated?
Title: Re: The 'Simple Questions' thread.
Post by: VijchtiDoodah on May 16, 2010, 09:52:28 pm
"Common" terminology? :D Because it comes up in conversation so frequently.

I have heard the terms omnicide, describing the possibility of nuclear fallout from a conflict between America and Russia killing everything; anthrocide, describing the killing of man or all men; and specicide, the killing of a cerain species. These are rarely used neologisms so you probably won't find them in any dictionary.

Then there is the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voluntary_Human_Extinction_Movement), a group that advocates an end to reproduction to drive humanity into extinction, and perhaps futurists (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Futurism_%28Christian_eschatology%29), who sometimes intentionally try to fulfill biblical prophecies to bring about the end times.

None of you know anything about life, death or the purpose of mortals. That includes me and, for now, it should stay that way. What you do have gained are experiences, but to sincerely believe that those experiences are solid factual knowledge is just absurd. We all have made different choices in our lifetime, consequently, we experienced what we had coming to us from those choices which we ourselves (or not) have made and to state that you know what the purpose of humans and our life is is by all means just not appropriate. If you use the words statistically, normally, generally, probably or perhaps, your statement's credibility is approximately zero.

The two ultimate choices are whether one wants to find answers to all important unanswered and unasked questions or just live desiring and finding out nothing. Finding out answers to a few questions is insignificant and will bend you towards nothingness (experienced lack of motivation and initiative?) unless you have already set your mind on doing everything it takes to find out everything there is to know. The latter takes most of your time and life. You begin to see a clear distinction between the marginal and relevant, but the price of it is your humanity.

As far as the universe is concerned, nothing deserves to live. There is no cosmic agent determining worthiness or entitlement.

Well, it's the most common human reaction to something unknown.

I'm trying to educate, not insult. I realize that what I wrote was worded so that it appears insulting, but I won't do that again.

The point I'm trying to make is that prejudice will get you nowhere. You know nothing of this group or its people and yet, before you give yourself a chance to think critically about their motives, you immediately rule out any chance that they are behaving rationally by assuming that they're psychologically damaged. That is naive and is an example of blindly preserving the status quo; confusing what is "normal" with what is rational or right.

Corrections to your misconceptions:

They are not killing themselves or anyone else; they're choosing not to procreate. That's a wide difference. They believe that we are worth the lives we have and that we should do nothing that might hasten our death. They also have a purpose: to eliminate harm done to the biosphere by humanity and to provide better lives for today's children.

As for the problem of having an organization limited by a lack of children, that is not irrational. It is a hindrance to growth, but ideological movements do not depend upon a continual source of offspring. And, furthermore, it is not irrational to have an organization that does not last past its founding members. Yet again, you assume that the status quo is the correct way of doing things and that everything else is wrong.

Okay, question.  Here we have a typical organ:
(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/69/Pipe.organ.console.arp.jpg/800px-Pipe.organ.console.arp.jpg)

You'll note that it has four rows of keys, each with five octaves.  My question is, WHY? Does that mean it can play 20 different octaves of music? And if so, don't the ends of that surpass the human range of hearing? And what kind of music can possibly need that sort of range?

They're just more notes. Some music uses different more specific notes than others. Maybe use an analogy with software (with your new degree): some programs have different system requirements than others.

I'm pretty sure that each manual (row) goes to a different set of pipes and makes a different sound.

You're actually missing several more octaves from the pedalboard, which you can't see. It should have another thirty or so keys that are meant to be played with the feet.

However, they're repetitive notes. You won't get anything past the range of human hearing (which is about 10 to 11 octaves, depending on your age, your gender, and how close you stand to concert speakers).

Those white knobs on either side of the keyboards are called stops. They turn on and off entire groups of pipes and that group of pipes will have a unique sound -- some might sound like different notes of a trumpet or an oboe or even a violin, for example. Each rank of pipes has its own type of sound.

Thus, the organ player could press a key to play C on the top keyboard with the stops set to play the trumpet-sounding set of pipes on that keyboard only. He could also then simultaneously play the exact C note on the bottom keyboard, but with the stops set to play the oboe-sounding set of pipes for that keyboard. So the end result would be a C note from one set of pipes and a C note from another set of pipes being played at the same time.

That should basically answer your question, at least. It's a bit more complicated than that: in reality, different stops will correspond to groups of pipes playing at different octaves, so the keys on a keyboard don't always correspond to a specific note. Still, you won't get 22 or more octaves.

From wikipedia: "A superhero is a type of stock character possessing 'extraordinary or superhuman powers' and dedicated to protecting the public."

Rambo doesn't possess extraordinary powers, he's just skilled and the enemies are terrible marksmen. He is an action hero. And in the first movie, he's destroying a town and killing innocent civilians rather than protecting the public.

While all of that stuff about Rambo is true, he didn't kill any innocent civilians. Towards the end of the first film, he mostly did property damages and wounded but did not kill, the sheriff. I haven't seen a scene in which he killed innocent people by accident or on purpose.

Haha your wrong. They have just started up a season 6, its not tamers 2 sadly, but it sounds cool, Digimon XrosWars

Another anime question. A long time ago, when I was maybe 9 or 10, I vivdly remember seeing and anime about a girl, who fought demons, and used cards to summon magic powers. She had a gold rod with small wings, or used a sword with rubies on it, i think? Anyway, does anyone recognize this?

EDIT: I found it out, its called Cardcaptors, or Cardcaptor Sakura in Japan. Now I need to find out how to buy all 70 episodes. I looked on Amazon, but couldn't make sense of it, and ones that had all 70 were in excess of 500 euros...Anyone know of sites where you can buy stuff like this, off other people?

EDIT2: I found everything for 20 euros on iOffer, awesome website which I got digimon off. So question solved i guess :P

I doubt it. The movie portrayal of defibrillators is overly dramatic -- muscles will contract, but the patient won't convulse enough to jump off the operating table like you'd see in an ER soap. It's nothing more than a heavy electric shock, but the voltage is spread across enough surface area (hence the reason for such large paddles) and is low enough that it won't cause tissue damage.

That being said, most people in the midst of cardiac fibrillation probably won't feel much of anything for a short while after they're revived.

As far as defibrillators and overly dramatic movie representations of them go, I'm pretty sure they don't even revive someone whose heart is stopped.  They just normalize an erratic heartbeat.  (Sort of like how silencers don't work anything close to how well they do in movies.)

Not everyone showers every day, echo, especially not while on vacation/summer/weekend where you never leave the house.

I wonder how linux users got such a bad stereotype?!

As far as defibrillators and overly dramatic movie representations of them go, I'm pretty sure they don't even revive someone whose heart is stopped.  They just normalize an erratic heartbeat.  (Sort of like how silencers don't work anything close to how well they do in movies.)
While we're correcting things, defibrillators really can restart a person's heart after it has stopped, the electricity can cause the muscles to contract and restore a heartbeat.

Also suppressors work REALLY well on subsonic ammunition, The De Lisle carbine's bolt action was louder than its shot if one used subsonic ammo. Here's an M14 (a notoriously loud rifle) suppressed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=socgmULGVOA

I'm usually pretty decent at grammar, but I'm not so sure about this instance:

One in three doctors agree...
OR
One in three doctors agrees...

I know the rule of thumb is that if it's a singular noun actually doing the action, the singular form should be used ("one of my teammates wins a lot").  But in the above case, is the "one in three" considered a full subject? Because one in three is actually 33 percent, which is a plural.  However, "one" by itself is clearly singular.  Anyone know this?

Ignore the s**t after the preposition. Or as my english teacher would call it, the object of the preposition does not change the subject of the sentence. One doctor agrees The rule is the same as the one you used in your example.

Well Shard, it's totally up to how you take up space on your hard drive. Converting all your soldat screenshots from .bmp to .png is definitely a step forward, but converting them to .jpg is the right way to go when you have a lossless image converter to do the job for you.

Yeh, it looks good for someone who didnt learn latin.
For someone who did learn it, the declension is wrong, and im not even sure if you picked the correct words.

Translated, it should be something like the wished translation. But im not completely sure that i picked the correct gram. cases, so here are 2-3 possible translations:
Draco Astri Incendiorum~ "dragon of the star fires"
Draco Incendii Astrorum~ "dragon of the fire of the stars"
Draco Astri Incendii~ "dragon of the star of fire"

Yours would be something like "dragon star fires"
Its a bit hard to do the back translating only with nouns/adjectives without having it in a sentence, as there can be multiple translations, depending on which gram. case you choose, and you cant find it by reading the context, as there is none.

There can be dozens of ways how to say the same sentence, so all might be correct, but all can be wrong too. I used the words for which i was sure that they have the meaning of the wished word.

Flamma version:
Draco Astri Flammarum
Draco Flammae Astrorum
Draco Astri Flamae
In english, both flamma and incendius mean the same, but they do have a different meaning:

Flamma, -ae, f.~ a controled fire, like a small flame
Incendius, -i, n.~ an uncontroled fire, like a forest fire, you now, the thing that destroys stuff.

Post by: croat1gamer on September 25, 2010, 01:08:07 am
If the static car remains with v=0m/s, the damage should be identical, unless the elasticity forces become big enough to create a visible effect.

Otherwise, the static car would get the most kinetic energy transferred to it from the moving car, and would be pushed backwards, which might lower the impact damage for one of them.

You do make sense, but I disagree; I think the static car would receive the most damage considering it has 0 momentum.
In traffic collisions, if not all collisions, the object having the lesser of the two momentum's usually takes the greater amount of impact damage.

The car doesn't necessarily have 0 momentum, actually. It all depends on what your reference frame is.

In this case, the only two objects that matter are the two cars. When they collide, they'll share the energy of the collision regardless of which car is moving relative to which frame.

It's all equal damage.

Post by: KYnetiK on September 25, 2010, 09:45:26 am
Wouldnt it depend if the static car remained stationary during and after the impact?

If the the target car was free to move after the initial impact, the energy should transfer into it and it would take a lot of damage.
However if the stationary car could not move whatsoever, lets imagine its a wall with identical mass, then the incoming car should take the most damage.

Does that make sense? =S
Title: Re: The 'Simple Questions' thread.
Post by: croat1gamer on September 25, 2010, 10:02:03 am
The car has to move after the impact.
If the car remained static there would be some obvious counter forces to the impact, which would negate them enough so it remains static.

Im not sure about the damage, but in my opinion it should get less damaged if it starts moving, as it would dissipate some energy with it, but if it would be tied to a single place it would get smashed.

It isnt the same as with a wall, because the wall has different physical properties from the material from which the car is made of.

It was a metaphorical wall -_- Lets just say the car occupied a region of space that was in a stasis field where time could not penetrate. Would that be a suitable literal hypothetical?
I was using the polarity of the hypothetical situations to determine how energy, mass, and momentum relate.

Think about it graphically - the target car loses energy quickly and stabilises, whilst the target car gains energy quickly and then stabilises. Since the target car will have the greater energy and velocity upon impact, it has the greater deformation potential, no?

Its being transfered like a Newtons cradle, resulting in the second object to posses more potential to move and deform.

When I copy a lot of files, sometimes I want to replace existing ones with new ones, but not lose them. Basically, I want to copy a file, and when a file already exists, the OLD ONE would be renamed to something like asdsad_old.ext, and the new one would be put in old file's place.

There are a lot of apps (it's built into Windows Explorer too) that rename NEW files, usually by appending something like _2 or (2) to the end of their names. I want to rename EXISTING ones. How to do it?

Googling didn't help. I use TeraCopy, but it doesn't have such feature - well, at least it has queuing.

Yes, INITIALLY. Once impact has occurred, the bulk of the energy is transferred to the second object. Its not a complicated concept =/

You misunderstood Smegma's statement, just as he misunderstood yours (I think...). Also, the cars would behave like Newton's Cradle only if they possess the same mass (and were swinging from a fixed structure).

If 2 identical cars would have a face to face hit, one going at 100mph/kmph (don t mind the speed) and the other standing still, which car will have the most damage?
It depends upon your definition of damage, the make/model of the cars, materials involved, etc. I'm assuming your question was supposed to be along the lines of conservation of energy and momentum. As far as energy transfer, the stationary car would possess slightly less energy after the collision due to loss as heat and sound. Momentum is always conserved; after the collision, the system posses the same momentum as it did before the collision. The cars, on the other hand, will have different momentum based on mass and velocity.

But the amount of damage is not determined by how much energy is in an object or if it increases does it mean it will incur more damage.

Car X is hit by car Y, car X is stationary, car Y in motion.
When car Y touches car X both cars experience a contact force of the same magnitude (equal and opposite reaction) which would cause the same amount of damage (since both cars are identical)

Didn't give us much to work with, BUT, I assume you might've caught something from the dog despite it not showing any signs of illness; Kind of like the swine flu, were the swine carries the disease, but doesn't suffer from the symptoms, however, once the disease is somehow moved to a human body, it sooner or later starts showing symptoms of the swine flu.

If it ain't that, you probably caught something from the air.

You should probably get checked out by a doctor, I don't know anyone on the SF that studies/studied medicine, so you shouldn't rely on the general public for medical advise.

That makes the three of us.. No clue how to make wrists thicker (excercise and build up some muscles maybe?). I didn't do anything about my wrists, I just happened to find a watch with a tight enough strap.


Anyway, I've got a question:
Do such things as arm and leg weights exist? (Basically extra weight that you can attach to your arms/legs and wear it) If they do - what are they normally called, and how difficult would it be to find them in stores?

well, here's what I liked about Cowboy Bebop:
- Really nice animation and drawings.
- Somewhat interesting and well-developed characters.
- Convincing world and atmosphere.
- Despite that most episodes are unrelated to the main storyline, they're still fun to watch.
- Mad Pierrot (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQvAHEloOpY) ftw

here's what I didn't like:
- Very little story development. Most episodes are just fillers and have no relation to the little story this series has (but like I mentioned, they're still decent).
- The little pieces of the main storyline are unclear and not very original. Ending is disappointing as well.


There is an OVA as well, that takes place somewhere between the last few episodes, but I haven't watched it. But after seeing the ending of the series, personally I'm not that interested in the main story anymore.

Still, it's a good anime, worth watching.

But seriously, if you wanted to watch some anime and not get your feet wet in some anime episode series, you could try some movies. I'd recommend Satoshi Kon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satoshi_Kon#Director) and Makoto Shinkai (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Makoto_Shinkai) to watch.

Note that I haven't mentioned Hayao Miyazaki since most of his movies consist of underage girls saving the world, with the occasional shotacon hero thrown in.

Bam.  Sigged.

As far as anime goes, I haven't watched a lot, but a HUGE amount of people seem to think FLCL is good.  It didn't do anything for me, but it's only 6 episodes, so it might be worth watching.  If you're not opposed to gratuitous violence and nudity, the 13 episode Elfen Lied might be alright to look into.  If you want a funny anime with some pretty trippy sci-fi aspects, check out the 14 episode Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.  And if you want to get a feel for THE anime of the 90s, try watching the Rebuild of Evangelion movies.  Two have been made with a planned two more in the works.

WAT remover - it's not compatible with updates, id est you can't use windows update. InfiniteRearm - program that automatically rearms your windows once a month. Yes, you can do it manually - but as far as I remember if you don't do that before end of a month (since installation) you are screwed.

I never had a problem with it, updates download just fine. There is however one update which might bork it (KB971033), but that update is optional and you can simply hide it from the list. And even if you do accidentally install it, AFAIK WAT remover fixes that as well.

Taksi, no sound, hasn't been updated in years and is generally a shot in the dark, but when I used it to record on soldat and anything running on the steam engine it worked pretty smoothly.

Set the framerate low, if your game is running at 30 fps you can't capture more than 30 fps anyway.
Title: Re: The 'Simple Questions' thread.
Post by: chutem on October 20, 2010, 11:09:04 pm
Also try recording at lower resolutions, I use fraps on the odd occasion I need too, and you can set it to record at half size etc. Also as a4yo said, recording at lower framerates helps.

Even if soldat runs at 100 fps, recording in fraps could be better at 30fps than 60.

EDIT:

Just remembered about a small problem I have.

Parents got a new laptop the other day, old one ran vista and new one runs windows 7. The problem is that a scanner that worked fine on vista doesnt work on windows 7. Using device manager I can see that no drivers are being installed from the CD that came with it. I tried searching through the CD contents and the internet to find the driver file so I could manually install it, but I couldn't find anything, are there any kind of generic scanner drivers that might work?

Btw, it is a microtek scan maker 5 thousand and something.

I agree. The IPhone is great but has a lot of hype targeted to those who don't even need it. If you can use it then that "150$ bill each month" is no problem. otherwise speed your Christmas money some where else... like on a PS3...

the touch is just as good as a status symbol, rock that with a cheap phone that you don't have to worry about.

I've used the same junker phone for years and dropped it every day without ever having a problem. spend the extra money on fart apps or a tasty sandwitch.

The iphone/itouch have the best apps and Jobs is cracking down on the worthless one. I recently replaced my iPhone with a Droid and some of the apps are of much lower quality (the facebook one is crippled compared to the iOS version) since app makers seem to only care about making iPhone ones.

I've just seen that appear on my laptop... "consider replacing your battery" WHAT!? serious? I have a ASUS K40IN it should be around a year old now I use it pretty much every day... but like really should I? like its always plugged in except for maybe 1-2 hours 4 times a week. But I've noted that last night the battery lasted MAYBE 1 hour...? it was kinda cold when I started it would it affect it?

Looking for a good program to monitor data usage on my computer

  • day by day usage a must
  • preferably able to see how much each user used each day
  • set start/end points of the month before allowance gets reset
  • would be good if it could also give a run down of the usage via laptop which is connected wirelessly, without having to change the firmware on the modem router.


cheers

Perhaps the "Rokario Bandwidth Monitor (http://www.rokario.com/)" I've had it a couple years ago on my desktop for when we didn't have unlimited download I don't know if it exactly what you want but it shows day by day data download/upload, they have probably upgraded it since I used and maybe the Pro has what you need.  So just thought I'd let you know

A year and all that time running the battery should pretty much suffice to eat through it, especially if you charge it often or forget that ti's connected to the charger for too long.
I suggest buying a new one.

having a battery at 100% charge all time time lowers its life more than if it gets drained down then charged back up. if you're plugged in to a wall all week pull the battery out and don't use it.

My ipod's dead right now so I can't name any, but I get most of my games from freeappaday.com and freegameoftheday.com. They each have apps that have direct access to the site, so you can get 2 free apps a day straight from your ipod.
4 out of 5 times they're shitty shovelware titles, but I've gotten some great games so far.

I like music a lot, so I always look for higher-quality downloads (in FLAC format for example). Problem is - FLACs take up a TON of disk space. I never owned a good stereo system or a pair of badass headphones (but I plan to get them at some point), so I can't tell much difference between Mp3 and lossless formats.
So my question is:

How much better is FLAC compared to 320kbs MP3? Is it really worth getting FLACs if I really like the music, or is 320kbs MP3 almost just as good? Also, which is better - 320kbs VBR or CBR?

you shouldn't be able to notice any difference really. Best quality VBR (V0) will be theoretically worse than 320 CBR, but you might not hear a difference here either. Compare them both and see which one is enough for you ;)
If you REALLY love your flacs though, i'd just get another terabyte of space... HDDs aren't all that expensive these days.

Post by: iDante on December 16, 2010, 04:42:10 am
You won't notice a difference between FLAC and MP3 until the mp3 gets down past V2 bitrates. For most purposes MP3 is just fine, I use V0 for much of my music and it's transparent enough for me.
Title: Re: The 'Simple Questions' thread.
Post by: L[0ne]R on December 16, 2010, 03:37:31 pm
Thanks a lot for the info.
But then if theres no difference between FLACs and 320kbs - why do many people keep posting FLACs? Is there some other purpose FLACs are good for?


And while we're on music theme I have another question:
Is there a program (preferably one that supports Winamp) that analyzes the currently playing song, and for next song it picks one that sounds the most similar to the current song? I have way too much music and I'm getting tired of trying to create "mixes" of similar kinds of songs, so I want to somehow automate that process.

FLAC's are 100% identical to the source whereas lossy format such as mp3/wma/ogg always remove largely inaudible sounds. People who prefer to have music identical to how it was recorded/produced(or at least ripped) usually prefer FLAC.

This may or may not be a simple question...

So I'm stuck on this Java program I'm working on. Basically I'm trying to animate some bars that are sorted by width using selection sort.

I can sort the bars easily, but when i try to use repaint() after each swap...it won't work :(
Is there something else I can use?

He said you won't NOTICE a difference, not that there is none.  I use FLAC for burning new CDs when the original ones get scratched up, because I know it'll be exactly the same.  Also, if you want to convert to different media formats, like ogg or mp3, FLAC is the best starting point.  Transcoding from one lossy format to another often makes it worse, since different formats compress in different ways.

Right click on song > Play tracks simalar to ...

Not sure how well it will work, as I just tried it but it just said playlist generator failed to initialize. Maybe you will have more luck.

It seems that this feature is really buggy in general and a lot of people are having similar issues with it.
Thanks for mentioning it though. I didn't even think of trying this out myself because I thought it was some simple user-tags-based thingy like on Last.FM. But I found a similar program called MusicIP which is supposed to do the same thing, but better. Though I still wasn't able to test it yet because it was taking too long to analyze all of my music. :S

p.s. liking the Christmasy version of your avatar. :P

Post by: L[0ne]R on December 22, 2010, 03:21:16 pm
Yeah, MusicIP even used to be supplied with Winamp some time ago, but right now the program is no longer being developed. But supposedly it's still good. :S
I'll search for other similar programs, just in case there's an even better one out there.
