If battery and sound aren't a concern then get a laptop cooler as well. It also makes the laptop semi-ergonomic.

Re: help to create a pdf file

First you would need a program that can create PDF files. There are some "free" programs, like Foxit Reader, that will do this but they typically put advertisements on the top of the pages ("Created with Foxit Reader"). Maybe if you have Adobe Acrobat Pro you can "merge" multiple files into one but ...

Re: Will Write For Room And Board (incoming rant)

The bailout was defeated in the House today. Naturally, the stock market dived 777 points in reaction to it, but I consider that a GOOD thing. I know it's going to hurt some 401Ks in the short term, but those people in the 401s need to remember that that's a LONG TERM investment, and stocks are goo...

Re: Spirit Walker Spoilers - Chapter 14

Every time I remember that Kyv has done little but speak to Clover and still hasn't asked what the other powers are, I lose a little respect for Kyven. Just the opposite, i think that it shows how dedicated (or bound)he is to his own Totem.The others literally don't exist for him.They don't have ha...

Re: Tech people, answer this question:

If it's an AMD dual core processor you might need a driver:

(I know "Driver for a PROCESSOR?!?" but it's true... I think that windows/microsoft update offers it on the "hardware" update tab.)

Re: The Faey & Stretched Space

As originally described, (or at least as I remember it) MPAC rounds are metaphased plasma inside a magnetic field. That means that some of it is 'out of phase' with normal matter and can pass through it. The matter that is in phase with normal matter is of course stopped cold, which presumably disr...

Re: The Faey & Stretched Space

ANTIcarrot, I think you got "solid" projectiles like Jason's rail gun and "energy" weapons like the MPAC confused. The MPAC rounds are plasma surrounded by a magnetic field. The MPAC rounds aren't "armor piercing" in the traditional sense. It's not like the round is going to "explode" behind the tar...

Re: The Faey & Stretched Space

I suspect Karrine technology could improve slightly on anything 'Black Ops' could produce. Therefore I see no barrier to Jason having a 'pocket' that could contain his armour. I agree that Jason could probably come up with some inconspicious way of carrying around his armor. However it's a far cry ...
