  1. Only the very latest version of ghost copies across the BCD from windows 7 (what used to be boot.ini) Best method for you is probably to plug the SSD into your full laptop, and run the windows 7 recovery, so it rebuilds the BCD. Otherwise you would need a usb cd drive or Bart PE (or something similar) running off a bootable USB stick.

    Knowing her, she was probably happy the computer died. Probably figured you and her son would pay more attention to her

    Hey math nerds

    That was my suggestion, but I'm not sure if it's quite as simple as the alternate solution above. e = sqrt(r^2 - c^2) - b requires 5 steps, whereas (r*cos(x)) - b only requires three steps.

    Hey math nerds

    Sorry, it's actually : (r * cos(x)) - b

    Hey math nerds

    If you know x, isn't it just : (r * sin(x)) - b (or is that cos(x), can never remember)

    Second small monitor

    I use one of these all the time for my work: http://www.lilliputweb.net/ Not sure on the model or where you can order them from in Australia, but Amazon and ThinkGeek seem to supply them

    The greatest chef you've never heard of...

    Manhattan seems to only have obscenely cheap, and obscenely expensive, not much in between. 200 dollars for something like that seems like it would be normal fair. Their are places in Sydney that charge the same. And Manhattan does have some great "in between" places. I'd recommend Pinocchio's on 1st Ave, around 90th St. Absolutely delicious italian food including a homemade truffle tortellini a la vodka that is unbelievably good. Costs about 25-30 dollars for main. If you are prepared to be a bit adventurous, Manhattan has great food at all ends of the money scale.

    Ummm, that may have been me... Not much I can do when my 6 week old daughter starts bawling right after the match starts :) Sometimes people have internet connection dropouts or have to go AFK, so your suggestion is a bit harsh

    Just found this interesting tidbit for those sick of people spamming in chat in the middle of a battle, and for griefers Will you implement the option of ignoring teammates who spam in battle? “You can already do it by pressing Ctrl and then moving the mouse over their name on the team list. Right-click their name to open a drop-down menu that provides the ignore option.”

    Looks like an outdated version of POGS mod, Shyne. Normally it should show that "funky icon" for all the tanks. And also does the same when you are in battle It's worth installing

    Thermal grease and clothes

    Usually from replacing motherboards, where I will attempt to clean the absolute crapload of old thermal paste off the cpu and heatsink before reapplying some new stuff. Some people seem to put half a bottle of thermal paste on cpus.
