Hmm, for whatever reason I didn't get all that out of the Wikipedia article.  Thanks, Vij.

So space limitations is the only reason for orchestras that are composed of more than just organs? ;)

Only anime shows I've felt any interest in over the years are Pokemon (original TV series) and various hentai.
so clearly jgrp is a goddamn anime connoisseur. his opinion might as well be law here.

I remember playing a remake of some old RTS a while back, I don't remember what it was called. The first few levels were you on some old planet shooting up renegades and stuff. If you exited, there would be this splash screen with all the developers and stuff, if someone could bring up the name that'd be great.

A.I. really loved to spam bunkers too

Will the length of a VGA cable comprise the quality? like will there be a difference in a regular 6' length and 25' length?

From http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_the_maximum_length_of_a_VGA_cable :
"Information deterioration only begins on a noticable level after the first 100 ft or so. "

Anyone know of a preferably free tool that I could use to remove a character from a font file?
Had a look around but haven't found anything yet.

Why would you want to do such a thing? And for that you can just use a ttf editor.

This site does a great job of explaining the difference.

Does a computer need RAM to boot up? I'm building a computer and I've bought and assembled all the pieces except for RAM and an SSD.  I booted it up to check some BIOS settings, connecting it first to an HDMI monitor, than a VGA one, but I didn't get a signal either time.  I know the power is working; the fans run, the disk drives eject, the little lights are on...but there's nothing else.  I'm hoping it's just the RAM thing, but is there something else I should check?

Correct. With no ram it'll just flicker and act weird.

Yeah, tried that and instead of the flickering I got a buzzing.

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.
