Okay so my eyes REALLY f**king hurt right now. Whenever I try to move them in a direction other than straight across, both of them explode in pain. I also have a really terrible headache.

Sleep outside in a sleeping bag, preferably not in a tent. This takes care of both the "sleep/go outside more" ideals.

Actually all the pain has dissipated considerably after forcing myself to sleep for 5 hours, watching Pulp Fiction, and taking some pills.

Video review:

To sum it up: It's not really something new and revolutionary, but is just a very good and fun game, although it's recommended to play with friends.
I want to play it too, but my comp sux. :(

No, it couldn't keep me interested after the fifth hour.

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.

Spiders are automated search engine crawlers. i.e. yahoo/msn/google looking over the pages and caching them so they can be used in their search results etc

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?

The reason i am posting here is because google isn't giving me the exact answer >.>

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.

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)

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.
Last year, I dreamt I was pissing at a restroom, but I missed the urinal and my penis exploded.

and the operating system won't subtract any video ram at all, right?

What are the limitations and benefits of a 64bit OS? (apart from more ram) i.e. are there hassles trying to get some programs to work, etc.

After effects CS5 will be 64bit only and I am contemplating 64bit.

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.

And yeah, some programs won't work [as well] without tinkering.

That means that your computer is having 1152mb RAM (1gb+128mb)
Also, afaik, 64bit systems are mostly for graphics designing, programming and similar stuff, so if you are a "casual" user, you wont notice any bigger difference, except problems with some programs.

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.

I have 2x2gigs running in dual channel.
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.

I got a question, when a person has (unfortunately) necrotizing fasciitis, will it eat out the voice box (or somthing like that) of ours too?
