VGA PSA

I recently installed an nVidia FX5700 AGP 8x video
card in a 4x motherboard and was having problems
while playing games. The picture would be distorted,
flicker, have a reddish color, and even crash. From
what I read this seems to be a common problem with
this video card when installed on a 4x motherboard
regardless of brand. There is a fix(actually a workaround)
other than buying an 8x board. If you tried alot of different
drivers and settings, as I did, then try setting the AGP
slot to 2x through the BIOS on the motherboard. That
should take care of it(well, it did for me anyway). It doesn't
seem to hurt the performance too much. I suppose it's
better than not working at all.

Safety Nazis at it again

Once again the Safety Nazis display their
lack of grey matter.

It's sad that people with that mentality
are in charge of teaching our children.
Their attitude is more harmful than any
cartwheel that little girl could do.

"We have got to fix this mess because we
have to let children be children." Indeed.

Learn how to use your tools

At least someone in Europe has common sense.
Though I'm sure the ABC story was intended as a
shot at the Italians.

Nobody is preventing the gay community from
having children and being parents. They'll just
have to use their "tools" the way they were
meant to be used. It's not like it's gonna kill them.

Now this may not be the ideal family for children,
but you can't stop people from reproducing.

So...I'm out of step

Big deal. When have the American people ever
really been in step with the rest of the free world.
Not to sound like a jerk, but America is the leader
of the free world. I would expect us to not be in step.
So, the rest of this planet needs to get over the fact
we don't agree with them. We probably never(I hope)
will. After all, that's how this great country came to be.

Enough already

Stop with the phone calls, please,
I've had enough. How many of these
get out the vote phone centers are
there anyway? I don't need to
be reminded to vote. I require no
prodding to get off my ass and voice
my preference for office. If I did, I
probably shouldn't be voting in the
first place and neither should the
people this is geared toward.
