  1. That island is so far from Argentina it'd be like America claiming Jamaica as its own. Argentina has never had a valid historcal claim on that island. Its a bullshit claim they bring up when their government comes under too much pressure from the people. Get that patriotic fury going and the the Argentinian people will forget what about their government, or atleast their politicians hope so. Same bullshit we see governments do the world over. Who cares if its about oil. It is a tiny hunk of rock in the Atlantic, and its not like Argentina can exactly use an indigenous rights claim considering what they did to the indigenous people of Argentina. A war was fought, Argentina lost. If tehy want the island back then I say go to war, because they have no legitimate claim to it otherwards. Its British land, and if they want to develop its natural resources, then they have a right to, and a right to reep 100% of its profits. THats my .02 anyways. Not to mention the inhabitants clearly want to remain British. I'll go so far as to disagree with the other Americans here. If an armed conflict does arise, I'd be for the US backing the UK militarily. The world sucks and you're only as strong as your friendships. That being said, theres no real reason there should be a war over this. This has diplomatic solution written all over it. Plus, Argentina can't afford a war, let alone actually win one.
  2. I ended up going with an i5-750. I just don't get to spend enough time in front of my computer thanks to my job and my horribly shitty work schedule to justify spending the money to get an i7
  3. Anyone have any New Years resolutions? Mine is to stop eating so much fast food. Its expensive and it really adds up.
  4. yeah, I've currently got 4 gigs of DDR2. I'm looking at a few different sets of DDR3 on Newegg right now. I'm looking at waiting until my next paycheck to upgrade the memory. Will the motherboard function using DDR2 or am I going to have to purchase DDR3 to get everything working?
  5. I'm looking at getting a new mobo, processor and heat sync for the rig. MSI P55-GD65 LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813130239 Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66GHz LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor Model BX80601920 - Retail http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819115202 and for cooling... CORSAIR Cooling Hydro Series CWCH50-1 120mm High Performance CPU Cooler - Retail http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...k=corsair%20h50 I haven't really paid attention to the latest in computer technology in a while. I'm not crazy about going to liquid cooling because of the price, but all the reviews of Corsair's H50 are giving it two thumbs up. Anyone know a better non-liquid heatsync that will do a good job? I don't really plan on doing too much hardcore overclocking. second question. I currently have a 550 watt power supply. Is that enough or do I need to upgrade? I am currently running an EVGA GeForce 8800 GTS. Upgrade coming soon.
  6. go to college as soon as you graduate high school and get a degree. Once you get out of the "going to school mode" its harder to get back into it.
  7. Ever considered joining the military? The Navy and Air Force have tons of tech jobs that need doing. They'll train you and you can get a college education for pretty much free. Employers like that kind of thing. Just a thought. Just get a job. You can find things out there with liveable incomes and decent benefits if you're willing to go anywhere (this is key, you have to go to where the jobs are). You don't have to love what you're doing, but right now a job is a job. It puts food on the table. I thought I always wanted to work in the IT field, but alas, here I am in the US Border Patrol. Go figure, right? Never in my wildest imagination did I see myself doing what I am doing now, but it is a good job and I am able to continue my education on my free time. Get on your feet and get self-sufficient. I think you'll be surprised how happy you are just having a little stability even if you aren't crazy about your current job. Then go to school part-time or whatever and work towards what you want.
  8. I have this reserved but I am kind of hesitant to spend $50 for it. Anyone play this and know if is better than the first one. Does it get as repetitive as the first one after a while?
  9. I like both cats and dogs, but I live in a one bedroom apt. with no yard so I only have room for a cat right now.
  10. wait..so I shouldn't have given her my phone number and asked her out to the movies? Damn, I knew anytime a girl approaches me its all too good to be true.
  11. slander and lies are found in every debate in history. You're acting as if its something new. Heck, you're from the UK, you should be used to that kind of debate. Seems to me that you're taking everything at face value and buying the Democratic party line 100% by believing that everyone opposing the new plan is uneducated and taking adverts at face value. There is sensible arguments on both side. Americans are supposed to be skeptical of government. We often are and at the same time, we often buy things at face value. We aren't perfect, but I for one am happy that people are at least voicing their beliefs.
  12. I have to laugh at someone from the UK telling others what will be the downfall of their country. I have a positive view of the UK, but its hardly a standard for efficient govt. and social harmony. Trivial things? A multi-billion dollar govt. takeover of a massive industry is trivial? What fantasy world do you live in? This is about a massive govt. trying to take over and socialize a massive industry when they've proven they can't run anything this big. This is about upstanding citizens having to shell out more of their money to prop up the lazy. One look at Crapifornia shows that a welfare state does not work here. People live on the welfare system. Welfare regulations are not enforced, regardless of how much the taxpayers protest it. And because the losers on the welfare train can't pay taxes, regular citizens are refused their tax refunds because California has no more money. Meanwhile the welfare system stays intact because why work when the govt. will just pay for everything, and its too controversial for politicians to try and cut back on welfare. Entire cities refuse to enforce immigration law, even when it comes to illegals with felony convictions because deporting people isn't "nice and neighborly." America's downfall is the fact that we are too afraid to hurt anyone's feelings regardless of being in the right. Fringe special interest groups have more of a say than the citizen majority. America is ran by a bunch of pussies. People see this move on healthcare as one step too far at this point in time and have decided to make their stand. And I, for one am having a great time listening to people whine and attempt to demonize the protesters in the same way Iraq war protesters were demonized. THe irony and hypocrisy is swirling over here, and its great to watch. btw, since when did vigorous debate become bad for a country?
  13. The messiah has promised to fix this problem too...all should be well. Perhaps another bailout? In all seriousness though, if Obama really does manage to clean up the VA, I'll be the first to congratulate him for a job well done. But the last three Presidents have all made this a priority and nothing has changed. On a side note, I've also read that California is still drowning in red ink, and I can't tell you how happy I am to hear that.
  14. The biggest argument against govt. run healthcare is the VA. Its a mess. If the govt. can't even handle healthcare for veterans, what makes anyone think they can handle it for the rest of the country? I'll give the Democrats some credit though, atleast the new plan makes it very clear that illegal immigrants won't be covered. The US isn't willing to enforce immigration laws while hospitals all over the southwest go bankrupt and close because illegals can't afford to pay for their hospital trips. And with people sitting on welfare for years on end, why in the world would I want another massive govt. social system that responsible citizens will be paying even more taxes to support?
  15. Thats how it happened here. It began as a small unknown drug of Asian origin that started spreading in Oregon and Washington. No one understood how terrible it truly was and it spread like wildfire across the country. Worst part is, meth addicts will do anything to get money for meth. Property crime, robberies, people would be surprised (or maybe not) if they knew how high of a percentage of these crimes are directly related to meth. The high quality meth comes from Mexico, but any meth addicted fool can brew some lower quality stuff up in their trailer. All the necessary ingredients are over the counter medication.
