Re: Modern "Prog-Rock"?

Tool is always heavy, but I like a lot of their less screamy stuff. I'm sorry... what? What is this 'screamy stuff' you refer to? I don't think Maynard is even capable of screaming. I'd call it moaning maybe. Not that I dislike Tool or anything, but as far as screamy stuff goes, Tool is definitely ...

Re: My laptop takes forever to boot up. What is wrong?

Beep-n-die indicates that the laptop is getting above a certain temperature which triggers a failsafe that shuts down your computer before it damages the innards.

My laptop was overheating, so I put a bit desk fan behind it, now the problem is gone. :)

Re: XP, Vista, and Netbooks

Depends why you need to have Windows. If it is for gaming related stuff, I would say go with the more powerful computer, but that's fairly self-evident.

The grub partition just gets pointed to by the MBR--as long as the MBR is pointing back at Vista it can stay ...

Whereas running XP, it would constantly be working and blinking like mad, whether it was running a game or idling on desktop or anything in between.
