Re: "Collections" Discussion

Had to post since I'm currently in the process of collecting them. I've read almost every Discworld book via the library (hence why I haven't read one or two). But I now regret that, and I hit up the used book store every so often to see if I can buy them so that I can actually own them for reading ...

Re: Printer DNS

I used nslookup and telnetted to the printer, changed it's ip to match and it worked. Of course, then all the old print jopbs started spewing out, but that's dealt with.
Thanks for the spot on help

Printer DNS

I'm one of two and a half techs on the Yearbook, and our previous tech had a whole DNS thing going, but he never told us how he managed it. (We were only his wee underlings at the time) 20 computers, 1 server (Mac OSX), 1 printer (HP Laserjet 5200 tn). home.yearbook brings a computer to index.php ho...

Re: No BIOS, POST, beeps, etc. new build

Yes, the big power cord fits into the main slot, and the little 4 fits into the top left. No holes left unfilled powerwise.

ololololololololol. Got a new PS. Works now. We'll see for how long. Amazed 230 didn't fry everything though...What luck.

Re: No BIOS, POST, beeps, etc. new build

20+4 is in place, PS is 500W and I do believe I checked it for er...strength. Hm...there's a green and a red light on the case (the one's that plug into the mobo), and the red one lights up and stays on. The green one doesn't so much as flicker, which seems wrong. Here's hoping the power supply didn...

No BIOS etc Problem SOLVED

I built a new computer and at the moment of truth, nothing happened. The fans spun a bit, then stopped. I disassembled a fair amount, including the heatsink, and put it back together. Eventually, a friend flipped the voltage on the PS and it got the system to power on (minus the Vcard fan, and of co...

Re: Another day, another CA earthquake *yawn*

I was disappointed too in that number. I logged my response when it was still considered a 5.6 (in fact, I logged mine when it said 0 people had, but it does take 5 minutes to update...), it went up to a 5.8, and now it's a 5.4 :( . Just shook stuff up and was kind of fun to ride. I recall a 4.7 fro...

Re: Urban Exploration ( Exploring )

I don't know if it counts necessarily... My friends and I went to the park around here to go see something one of my friends was telling us about. Park's in the middle of the city, just basically a giant canyon that all the roads go around and the wilderness lives in. If you follow the trails, then ...

Re: Certainty (not in a Heisenberg way)

by my (limited) understanding, physics works, except at the quantum level, therefore you need quantum mechanics to deal with it, so it's like an exception to an assumption. Not quite. What do you mean by saying that "physics" works? Newtonian physics, which is what is taught in secondary ...

Re: Certainty (not in a Heisenberg way)

Hm...I must've left my post tabbed and unposted somewhere in Firefox, because I swear I made another one. Perhaps I made the assumption that my post would always post, and I found the exception! (...or just ignore that.) Well, that post was something like Now I know that when you guys say, "alw...

Re: Certainty (not in a Heisenberg way)

Mmm...It was some sort of thing. The topic came up in fourth grade, quite a while ago. I think the specific terms were, "6 is always 6" "But not in base six. In base six, six isn't 6." Perhaps the teacher was referring to the way it's written? I don't know how six is in base six,...

Re: Certainty (not in a Heisenberg way)

We actually can say many of these things are right based on the mathematical formalism behind them. As long as the assumptions made are correct, the predictions must be correct. Even if someone finds an exception to the assumptions, the predictions will still be right, because they only apply where...

Certainty (not in a Heisenberg way)

A quick look and search around and I haven't seen any related topics to this, but it could just be me. Forgive me for quoting several people from several topics without names. Yes. The second law always applies. Always. Even on the moon. You couldn't travel the speed of light. (Chem teacher, roughly...

Re: Blade Runner

Definitely based off the Philip Dick novel. It's a really interesting movie, stimulates the brain. It's pretty much meant to be slow paced, it just works out that way. And this is the equivalent of, "Star Trek, that's the one with Captain Gene Luck Skywalker and Jar-Jar Binks, right? I love tha...
