How do you pronounce "Joyeux Noel"?  (German for Merry Christmas I think)

EDIT:
Oops, sorry, that's not German for Merry Christmas.

It's French.

Jo-i-ee  no-el.
Stretch the J to make it sound a bit liquid, don't ask what that means. I just know how to spell it, not explain it.
And if you were going for German it's: frohliche weinechten/frohes weinachten.
Fru-lee-sheh vae-nakh-ten/fru-es vae-nakh-ten.

Oh right, french.  Thanks

Is it normal for a 320GB external to be missing like 20GB straight out of the box?  If not I will take it back.

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.

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.

And NTFS partitioning often gets a few gigs.
Try with with a same USB stick, format it in FAT32 and NTFS, then compare.

What's a good place to order decent computers? For gaming and stuff. Places like Dell seem to overcharge you.

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).

Shops which sell computer parts (graphics cards, psu) usually have some premade computers which are better value than stuff from companies like dell. At least in my experience they do.

I've got question: Does mIRC v6.34+NNScript works fine under 64-bit Windows7? I've got such a compilation and it seems it doesn't work.

It's basically SGR with worse art. You don't really need much of a background for either one.
I attend grammar school, last grade, and ignorance is all around me. Well, good for them. Ignorance is bliss.

Hey boys, I'm looking for some new films to entertain me. I was thinking something along the lines of Surrogates, iRobot and Minority Report. Can you help a fellow forumer out?

The kind of action movies that is a bit philosophical, or to be exact, movies that make you think "what if the world were like this"?

(Never watched movies, but I'm just throwing ideas)
V for Vendetta?
Blade Runner?
The Island?
The Sixth Day?
Equilibrium?

V for Vendetta? - Crappy political propaganda under the mask of an action movie
Blade Runner? - Not really in the line of what he was asking, also I thought it was extremely boring.
The Island? - Good movie, I really like it.
The Sixth Day? - No
Equilibrium? - Good, don't expect anything great.
Also just go see Avatar in Imax man.

STM, not a bad list. I've actually seen all of them fairly recently. Even Blade Runner was on the tube like last night or summing.

Gram, Avatar eh? Yeah, I'll go see if they have that at the video shack, so I can watch it at my awesome 3D TV set! YOU BASTARD! I WANNA SEE IT SO BAD! I WANT! I WANT! DIIIEEEEE!!!! :(
