    What of Atomic?

    And thank YOU for being part of its heart and soul. That goes for EVERYONE. Right back at you Flouncy and that goes for everyone else involved with Atomic over the years whether it be the mag itself, forums, live, worldlangibfragcon(XP) or anything. You've been a major part of my life and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. Where's Lambo when I need a tissue

    Returning to our roots....

    I posted this in another thread, but; Who remembers having to pay for The Green Room/General Chat? ;-) p.s. of course there is a video. Pay for it? I don't remember that, wasn't it like a code or something that game with the magazine or something? p.s. it's lost to the internet forever, like firefly

    I can't believe PhR33X has been grooming me for 10 years now, he's definitely playing the long game. Feels like only yesterday I was shocked to discover that he was not in fact a black superhero ='(
  10. Hello atomic, long time :) I'm looking for some advice on building a budget PC to take with me to Melbourne for the holidays. I'll probably be playing Dragon Age: Origins, Dark age of Camelot, GTV IV, Saints Row 2, S.T.A.L.K.E.R, Torchlight, Borderlands, Overlord 2 etc, nothing too beefy I think. So far I think I'd be happier going with the older generation 775 Core2s just because I think if I go 1156/1366 I'm going to have to sacrifice a whole lot to afford the CPU/DDR3. To be honest I havn't read anything about computers in the last two years so I'm pretty lost. Who else to ask than you guys? Anyways my ideas: Intel Core 2 Q9550 2.83Ghz, 12MB Cache, 1333Mhz FSB, Quad Core Asus P5Q-SE2, P45/ICH10 Chipset, 4x DDR2 1600, 1x PCI-E x16, GB LAN, SATAII, 8 Ch Audio, ATX Corsair 4GB Kit (2x2GB), PC-8500 (1066MHz) DDR2, XMS2, 5-5-5-15, 2.1v, Dual Channel Gigabyte GF GTX 275 PCI-E 2.0 896MB DDR3 Dual Dual-Link DVI, HDCP, Fan Western Digital 500GB, Caviar Green, SATA-II, Up to 7200RPM, 32MB Cache, NCQ Thermaltake V9 Miditower case I also need someone to recommend a good PSU (and what kind of power I'll need re: GTX275?) as well as pick apart what I've put together there. I'm open to all suggestions but I'm an intel/nvidia/asus/corsair kind of guy =D never had a problem with their stuff. Thanks for any help guys

    So... Who's Playing Eve-online?

    Hey guys, just started playing a couple of days ago and loving it =) At the moment I'm flying in a condor you get from one of the early missions after the Merlin I bought kind of got blown up into a million pieces >< back to grinding ISK!
  13. Leanne is in her 20s, married for a few years and questioning her future. She soon realizes she is both ready and excited by the prospect of having children of her own. After much thought she realizes she wants more genetically 'superior' material than her husband can offer her. She begins stressing on how she can both have unprotected sex (or at least make it appear as such) with him whilst making sure she is only fertilized by her chosen donor. --- This is an awesome idea mate. The most convincing way would be to sabotage some form of birth control. Either have her forget to take her pill or sabotage the condom post-ejaculation and make it appear as if it tore. I think the pill idea is easier but the idea of a woman going to the trouble to fake a broken condom is a LOT more horrifying, especially as a guy lol. Anyways sounds good!

    Inspiration for working in medicine

    This is probably just shit-stirring but yes some schools have a number of places set aside for aboriginal students. It is ridiculously unfair.

    Inspiration for working in medicine

    As some of you know I completely dropped off the geeksphere when I decided to pursue my passion for medicine a few years ago. I literally picked up my life and moved to accommodate my undergraduate requirements for postgrad medicine. In the beginning I thought that my becoming a doctor would require a certain level of 'external' compassion that I would need to put into words. I expected to be asked repeatedly what motivated me to become a doctor and what influenced the decision. I quickly learned that gaining entry to medicine requires none of this. First off you don't write an application letter. Depending on the school you wish to apply you fill out a form with your Grade Point Average and Graduate Medical School Admissions Test scores. If you make their cut-off for interviews you will then be interviewed. Only in the older style interviews may you be asked about your reasons for wanting to do medicine. At this point you will have your answers to such questions memorized including a number of fallback answers if you think you've judged the mood well enough to notice a need for a shift. Even more likely is that you'll do an MMI (multiple mini interview) in which you'll do activities at a number of stations that require logic, spatial thinking, reasoning etc and have little to no 'personal' aspect to them. On top of this at some universities (UQ for example) you don't sit an interview at all. The only place I can think of in the whole process where you might be able to relate such a personal story is in the section section of the GAMSAT. It requires you to write two written responses within an hour in response to a selection of quotes. Topics include morality, wisdom, superficiality etc. Being able to use personal reflection in these pieces is very important and helps give you writing impact. Unfortunately to put this into perspective I'd say 95% of people are taught to make up anecdotes for this very reason so it isn't really a personal reflection on the author. Also it simply translates to a section two mark and is never seen by the institution to which you apply. I guess to sum it up no, there is no place in the 'application space' for such a personal story and it simply won't be relevant in today's process. That being said pre-med/med students all have their own stories and if you felt comfortable discussing this with them then you'd find a pretty amazing group of people who would be very understanding. Hope that kind of helps if it doesn't just annoy me on MSN @ 3:00am again.
