  1. And regarding fast food, I'm fairly sure they're considering a fast food tax which will help subsidize healthy food.

    Trouble pushing Q6600 higher...

    Well that's a bummer! I'm hoping it's more an error on my part, being new to overclocking I suspect that could be the case :P
  3. So, I currently have a Q6600 G0 at 3.5ghz and I can't seem to push it any further. I went out and bought a CM Hyper 212+ heatsink and recently acquired some Corsair Dominator ddr2 1066 ram hoping the higher ram speed would let me easily push the Q6600 with a higher FSB. But it seems I can't. I have an asus P5KR motherboard which has the P35 chipset but no matter what I do I can't push higher. I've fiddled around with north bridge voltages @ 1.55v, setting dram voltage to 2.1v and even having to set the cpu voltage to 1.4875v which, from what I've read, is more in the 3.8ghz territory....? I've always had the divider set at 1:1 or 4:5 so that shouldn't be the problem. Any ideas?
  4. So I turned the computer on today, everything turns on normally, fans are going flatout as they normally do, all the lights turn on, however it just hangs like that. I have taken everything out, ram, hard drives, video card, dvd drive, tv tuner, even cleared CMOS battery but nothing lets it boot up, there's no signal at all to the screen. I even tried another video card to no avail. So I'm guessing it's a dead motherboard? For the last year the computer has been acting up a little, random restarts every now and then, also the problem above used to happen quite a bit but after a few restarts it used to fix itself. Now it won't. Any thoughts? I'm pretty certain it is the MOBO from what I've read on the internet. Specs: Q6600 8800GT 1024mb 2x2gb 800 ram 500gb sata2 hdd

    ATT: Youtubers and Free-TV recorders!

    Watched the exact episode you're talking about last week. The guy was a drug courier, learner, carried a pack of straws in his jacket :S Can't find anything on youtube, but it was definetly the episode of 'The Force' which aired last week.

    "Windows support" Phone Scam

    Got one the other day, the guy started explaining how I had such and such a virus on my computer before I blatantly told him I didn't even have a computer. Total lie, but the shameful pause afterwards was awesome before he hung up.

    Exam Question

    I've re-read your post twice and still have no idea what you are asking. Where are the points labelled A B and C? Is this diagram looking from on top or sideways? I do physics so thought I'd give it a shot anyhow :P
  8. I'd love to see a snapshot of your bookmarks and recently visited websites.

    Mobile phone numbers going public.

    Bullshit. Websites legit, but it seems to just be another chain mail that doesn't benefit anyone other than the person knowing they've inconvenienced thousands of people.

    Prison dog?

    Our cat has the 3 or 4 blue dots in his ear. We were told by the vet it was a mark to show they were de-sexed.
  11. On the topic of nuclear energy, what were the arguments against dumping our waste in a 100m hole in central Australia? Remember hearing that a few years ago and then it went quite. We could make a killing off other countries to do so? On the topic of mass-scale renewable energy: http://www.enviromission.com.au/EVM/conten...nologyover.html Invented by a guy in Australia.
  12. Define 'public indecency'? (cos I sure didn't see any of it in this case) Is sex with a partner ok? Yes. Is sex with a partner in public ok? No. And before you highlight the obvious, no, sex did not occur in that clip. But my point stands all the same.
  13. Thankyou for summing up why the police intervened then.
  14. Public indecency? I assume Director was implying victims in the sense of physical injury, as that was what occured in the video. Tell me if I'm wrong Director. In that case I'll take it back :) I think calling someone exposed to public indecency a 'victim' is a bit of a stretch too.
  15. Crimes do not always have victims! You're implying American police are the same as Australian police too. They're not, they're very different. We all know American police are a little bit more outlandish, act now ask questions later. But they do snap when they're pushed, often way more than Australian police. Now, everyone knows this, yet, they do it anyway. They push all the wrong buttons and get what they expect then whinge when they get it. It's absurd. There's a total lack of common sense or decency. Who starts making out at a memorial? People do, get asked not to, and they abide. In America, they believe they have the right to do whatever the hell they want. Edit: The hypocrisy Director is that I'm sure you would be a bit apalled if a couple made out infront of your kids on a sunday outing? I'm sure you'd like somebody to do something if people started acting indecently.
