  1. I call for September 29th to reach 50K not betting on anything since my state is on the list as a non-online gambling state :-/ sucks I can;t win money in Poker tourneys
  2. That could be a reason because you don't need your whole house ran on just 1 surge protector. You need to make sure you don't overload the Joules on the surge protector and blow out the Wall Outlet with too much power. I happened to do that once hooked up 15 computers to 2 surge protectors and into 1 wall outlet and it really blowed a fuse to where my office area was starting to smoke a little.
  3. Verizon fixed my connection just in time because I was about to called them to cancel my DSL service and I was without DSL service for 6 days. Apparently the CO was under maintenance and connections were dropping everywhere.
  4. I agree thats like my time with AOHELL !! Tried to go with Verizon and they were like please stay with us we will give you free service for 3 months I'm not gonna fall for them monday morning when I tell Verizon to screw it..
  5. I have had the 3M package since it became available in my area between 2-3 years ago and had hardly no problems. I had no problems what so ever for 10 straight months till this past Tuesday My suggestion to those who have been with Verizon DSL for years LEAVE VERIZON DSL SERVICE WHILE YOU STILL HAVE A CONNECTION!!! Its gonna happen to everyone since the FIOS deployment is only 8% done across the country and my area won't have FIOS for up to 2 years.
  6. I have been a valued customer with Verizon for my whole life and its exclusive DSL packages for the past 6 years. I "have" the 3M/768K package which exactly I do not. The problem occured in the middle of the night Monday Night/Tuesday Morning where Verizon decided to cut its existing customers from the 3 Meg package without them knowing. I have contacted Verizon on over 20 different occasions in the past 4 days and every single representative said the same thing "you need a new modem .... you need this and you need that to get your speed." Yesterday (Thursday), a tech came out to my house while I was not home but my mother was home and he arrived 1 1/2 hours before my appointment time of 5pm. He claimed that I have very good connection but he didn't tell my mom what the speed was and he went on my computer when I wasn't home at the time and was going through webpages to see if they load fast or not (Which is against Verizon's Policy "An adult of 18+ years of age must be at the home at the time of your appointment AND The USER of the computer must be present also to verify the problem with the technician"). He said to my mother that the webpages load pretty fast and left my house 5 minutes before I walked in the door. When I came on the computer I have noticed that nothing was changed or done to my computer let alone my connection. My connection right now is at 255Kbps Down and 518Kbps Up which is very slow on the down side. I then contacted Verizon on this matter that the job wasn't handled accordingly and completed as it should and the tech noticed something strange with my connection. What the representative found is that my service is on a loopback just before it comes into my house and to my modem ... what this means is that my connection is like a clogged drain with some water getting through meaning only very little is getting to my system while the rest is getting pushed back elsewhere. The representative finally admitted to tell me "Due to the enormous amount of new customers in your area signing up for the 3M service, we are asking all existing customers to downgrade their service to 1.5M or 768K." This really pisses me off to hear this from a company who suppose to be the best in my state now they are telling me to downgrade my service or go with another ISP so the new kids on the block can get their share of the fast internet. I DON'T LIKE IT ONE BIT and I'm going with Comcast Monday Morning to get their Powerboost package of 8M/768K with powerboost to 12M/768K for the first 20MB on a download.
  7. Not trying to rub it in but heck Intel chips are in MACs now so thats a plus for those who like Intel and MAC just wonder when AMD will be in MACs
  8. I have noticed that Apple have released a new service for iTunes called EMI Fairplay http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FairPlay_%28DRM%29 and it actually lets you purchase your music without the DRM on it for $1.29 per song or an upgrade charge for already purchased iTunes music for $0.30 more per song. The price is per song but I think they offer a upgrade fee for Albums at $2.50 more .. unsure on the exact price but what the heck at least Apple is doing something right for a change.
  9. my co-worker was saying that if I burn the iTunes music to a CD then rip it in WMP then it "will" work
  10. Is it possible/Is there a way where I can convert my iTunes downloadable songs to an MP3 player?
  11. I know the cheap AT&T Phones had it too believe me I had one when the battery is out for 5 minutes, the time is resetted.
  12. I have heard from news links that it can cause the consumers to receive for 1 extra hour of peak minutes on this sunday if the problem is not corrected on the provider's system. Meaning like Monday Morning Nights minutes ends at either 6 or 7 am and becomes peak minutes the real time is 7:01am and that is peak minutes but the system is showing 6:01am which is off-peak minutes but at night when its 7 pm nights start up and are free but the system says 6 pm which means you have to pay for the minutes that happen during that hour of 6-7 pm
  13. Are they gonna be any patches or software upgrades involving the DST change for cell phones? If so, how can it be done?
  14. I have 512MB OCZ S.O.E PC2-6400 (DDR2-800) memory with timings of 5-5-5-15. I am planning on buying a 1GB stick of the same type but the timings are 4-4-3-15 and also 5-5-5-12. Will my memory work with 2 different timings or does it have to have equal # of timing in order for it to work?
  15. Only on the Western side of the bay have FIOS now. FOR ALL YOUR FIOS QUESTIONS HERE IS A LINK WITH ALL YOUR ANSWERS ON WHERE FIOS IS AVAILABLE .. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verizon_FiOS_availability
  16. My friend is wondering .. if he buys a new motherboard and a AM2 chipset instead of the 939 he have now , will he have to reformat his hard drive ?
  17. but look at it its like the only true compatible motherboard for that specific processor AND ITS MOST LIKELY FOR A SERVER LOOK AT ALL THOSE SATA PORTS !!
  18. But what is sweet is that AMD have a Quad-Core Out Windsor (90 nm SOI) - Quad FX platform Dual-core, dual CPUs (four cores total) CPU-Stepping: F3 L1-Cache: 64 + 64 KiB (Data + Instructions), per core L2-Cache: 1024 KiB fullspeed, per core MMX, Extended 3DNow!, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, AMD64, Cool'n'Quiet, NX Bit, AMD Virtualization Socket F (1207 FX), 2000 MHz HyperTransport (HT2000) VCore: 1.35 V - 1.40 V Power Consumption (TDP): 125 Watt max per CPU First Release: November 30, 2006 Clockrate: 2600MHz (FX-70), 2800MHz (FX-72), 3000MHz (FX-74) Manufacturing Tech 90 nm Price: $525 [urlhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819103866&ATT=19-103-866&CMP=OTC-C173T] The problem about this 1 is 125 Watt Power Consumption and Socket AM3 processors will be available by Christmas and it can fit in any Motherboard with AM2 but the biggest part is full support for the newest line of DDR3 Memory by Christmas or New Years
  19. Actually found 1 so far available Clock Speed : 2.3GHz Core Brisbane Multi-Core Dual-Core Name Athlon 64 X2 4400+ Operating Frequency 2.3GHz HT 2000MHz L1 Cache 128KB+128KB L2 Cache 2 x 512KB Manufacturing Tech 65 nm Vista Ready Yes 64 bit Support Yes Hyper-Transport Support Yes Virtualization Technology Support Yes Multimedia Instruction MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, 3DNOW!

  20. But the fact is 65 watt power consumption is gonna be out by April or May Dual-core CPU CPU-Stepping: G1 L1-Cache: 64 + 64 KiB (Data + Instructions), per core L2-Cache: 512 KiB fullspeed, per core MMX, Extended 3DNow!, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, AMD64, Cool'n'Quiet, NX Bit, AMD Virtualization Socket AM2, HyperTransport (1000 MHz, HT1000) VCore: 1.25 V - 1.35 V Power Consumption (TDP): 65 Watt First Release: Dec 5, 2006 Clockrate: 1900 MHz - 2600MHz 512 KiB L2-Cache: 3600+: 1900 MHz 4000+: 2100 MHz 4400+: 2300 MHz 4800+: 2500 MHz 5000+: 2600 MHz
  21. I overclocked my AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ from 2.0GHz(2.01 on Windows) to 2.6GHz and the processor never reached 1.4V and the temperature never went over 104*F(40*C). Used Sandra 2007 Benchmark and it beat all the P4 and Core Duo Processors by at least 100 points
  22. Here are the specs for the new AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ and FX-62 for AM2 Motherboards Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Athlon 64 FX-62 Clock Speed : 3.0GHz Clock Speed : 2.8GHz 64 bit Support: Yes 64 bit Support: Yes HT: 2000MHz HT: 2000MHz Hyper-Transport Support: Yes Hyper-Transport Support: Yes L1 Cache: 128KB+128KB L1 Cache: 128KB+128KB L2 Cache: 2 x 1MB L2 Cache: 2 x 1MB Manufacturing Tech: 90 nm Manufacturing Tech: 90 nm Multi-Core: Dual-Core Multi-Core: Dual-Core Processors Type: Desktop Processors Type: Desktop Series: Athlon 64 X2 Series: Athlon 64 X2 Vista Ready: Yes Vista Ready: Yes Price: $529 chip only Price: $409.99 chip and heatsink Source : www.newegg.com
  23. Anyone seen the new AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ I have but the starting price is an arm and a leg. Who thinks the Single/Dual-Core FX/ FX2 processors should drop in price?

    dvd burning??

    use DVD Shrink http://www.dvdr-digest.com/software/dvdshrink.html#downloads if you have a single layer DVD Burner. Depending on the computer itself , you can convert an 8.5GB DVD to 4.7GB (4484MB) I think in about 35 minutes on a fast new computer or 1 1/2 hours on a slow computer. And there is a feature on there that lets you burn the converted DVD that actually uses just a little less quality than a normal DVD that you get for rental or from the store but its still very good quality.
