  1. Hey, great job on the PK developing, I just tried it out and it's working incredibly. Very diverse, and it has a bunch of random capabilities I love. Props to you.

  2. You can't really blame them, Windows XP 64bit has always been an under-supported OS, and there are a number of reason why. The first issue is that Windows XP 64bit isn't Windows XP at all, it's Windows Server 2003. Instead of doing major revisions to the Windows XP codebase, Microsoft build Windows XP 64bit on top of Windows Server 2003 since it already had a working 64bit variant. This means Windows XP 64bit doesn't even use the same kernel version as Windows XP 32bit, which can cause driver programmers some serious headaches. This leads up to issue number two, a lot of licensed software

    Stop screwing with the school computers; if you really don't want to be monitored, bring a laptop from home and use that instead.
  6. I don't know, looks a lot more comfortable than the desks we put up with at my college.
  7. True, but Moonlit wasn't talking about a full power down, he was talking about a soft-reset (also known as a "warm boot"). This is a situation where the OS restarts but the computer itself stays running (POST and BIOS aren't re-run). The RAM never loses power, so the information stored there is preserved. Similar functionality can be seen on modern hardware when dropping into ACPI mode S3 (suspend to RAM), though in the case of S3 mode, the OS is being suspended and resumed rather than restarted. Edit: After some discussion with Moonlit elsewhere, it seems there's already a commerci

    3-D TV?

    That's not as far off as you might think: Those are LCD shutter glasses, getting their sync signal wirelessly, and packed into a frame not much larger than normal sunglasses.
  9. Only if it's system RAM being allocated as a mountable volume via a software layer. Wikipedia, which you seem to hold to a higher standard than your fellow community members, agrees with me by the way: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAM_disk If you'll notice, right at the top of the article, it even says "For hardware storage devices using RAM, see solid-state drive." It matters quite a bit, it completely changes the definition. A software solution involving RAM on the motherboard would be a RAM Drive, a hardware solution like the ACard counts as a SSD. As a whole, the iRAM is
  10. Incorrect, you're missing a key distinction...A RAM disk, in the traditional sense, is a software layer that enables applications to transparently use RAM (often a segment of main memory) as if it were a hard disk or other secondary storage. Quite obviously, this does not describe the Gigabyte iRAM. A solid-state drive (SSD) is any data storage device that uses solid-state memory to store persistent data. DRAM is solid state memory, and is made persistent via the enclosed battery, ergo the Gigabyte iRAM is a SSD. Wikipedia calling such SSDs based on DRAM "RAM Drives" is a misnomer (Just as S
  11. ok...lets take that one line at a time... That's not quite what Moonlit had in mind, he wants to use main system RAM as a RAM Drive, not build a SSD out of yet more RAM. The Gigabyte iRAM is not a RAM Drive, it's a SSD (Solid State Drive). You also don't need any special bootloader setup for the Gigabyte iRAM to work either, it uses a trickle-charge from the PCI bus (which is available even wen the computer is off) as well as a battery pack (in case of power failure) to keep the information stored in the RAM alive, and it connects via SATA, so that it acts just like a regular hard disk..
  12. 3x 22" widescreens with a total resolution of 5040x1050. Finding wallpaper that wide is a pain
