    how crap is this government ?

    NSW decides... PMSL - it's looking like a right towelling for the Labrat party.

    Watched the video last night... that thing looks like a bit of a weapon. Looking forward to their promised followup.

    Project Binky

    There's a good explanation in a Wheeler Dealers episode - one of the recent ones that's produced in the US. They had an old car and got Eddie Quato (sp?) to help out - he's supposedly one of the best and used to appear in American Hot Rod, he did the glass work for Boyd Coddington. This thing needed a small screen and there was no OEM to be had - Eddie ended up finding that a certain older Chev Impala had the right curves so they trimmed down a screen for that and used it. As for the mostly non compound curved side glass I imagine would be a piece of piss.

    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    Worth viewing just for the profanities while he's copping a shock. Naturally, don't try this at home as is warned during the video.

    What's on your mind?

    Laptops are generally a major PITA to work on and I don't like having to do anything much beyond changing Ram or HDD. But on some even those trivial things are a big job. As for cable connectors, once the things are over a few years old the heat and/or lack of humidity has made them brittle and so easy to break. Gaming ... I played Limbo all through without dying to get the extra secret egg but it seems you have to do it in one sitting. I was doing savepoint backups through it so probably invalidated it, not to mention dying a few times (which I nullified by restoring the savegame file).

    Better option is throttling the CPU yourself but it's an annoyance having your performance hindered to the point of you may as well just getting a Core2Duo machine instead.

    If there's option to turn off Hyperthreading it can help. You lose a bit of performance but can make a few degrees improvement at 100% busy.

    What's on your mind?

    The first gen Core i runs pretty hot - the Xeon in this workstation I used to use was regularly pushing over 90 - I used ThrottleStop to regulate the speed dependent on temps, the only downside of that program is it expires and you have to download the new version every few months. If you're basing on the core temperature sensors (not externals) then it should be fine to run up to about 95 - the thing should have automatic throttling and safety shutdown anyway.

    Here's a thought

    Re the needles and junkie accusation thing - sorry. It was uncalled for. Calling out on a set of behaviours is one thing but correlation doesn't equal causality.

    That's a pain... a viable option might be an IDE to SD adaptor then use a fast SD card though it'd still lag well behind even an IDE drive.

    i see dead people

    Missed one - only found out earlier today. John Haynes, founder of the Haynes series of workshop manuals died aged 80 about a month ago. The manuals, sharing true Atomican spirit are based on a complete teardown and rebuild of the car in question. They've also released similar manuals on other topics such as home appliances, computers and even Star Trek.

    Don't worry, I wasn't sticking up for him. I CBF'd looking back for the insults you'd thrown at Leo before putting him on ignore... so must have quoted the wrong one.

    Dear TMFP

    In this case, probably the forum playing up... sporadic lately. Instant response one minute, then a post hangs the next and goes to an error page and you have to redo it all.

    Here's a thought

    You've shown all the hallmarks of a junkie lately - sitting there looking down on the world from your vantage point in the gutter. The irony of it all is that you've even gone so far as to alienate the ones that'd usually be joining you on the left whinger bandwagon. And then there's the hypocracy of calling people shitcunts, only to put them on your ignore list 5 minutes later.
