  1. I love chrome because it is the fastest for me also love the ease of use. The kids use Firefox because it does not have as many problems as chrome. IE just seems slow and always CLUNKY to use plus uncle bill has enough people on his team have to do something outside of the box!

    I have found that through out the day my speed goes up and down and then when it is VERY slow that the router needs a quick reboot. Just for out of my own curiosity are you using wi-fi or wired? Welcom to one of the two places that make me feel at home!!
  3. no one is home right now will try to find you all next time
  4. I think it looks cool. As for chip speeds you can not go faster than the speed of light so that will be the limit. I have always wanted a case that was dust free and a liquid cooled. As for the tool that are liked disliked.... I use dewalt everyday they work great for what I use them for... I like the fact that the battery seem to last a while. The best hand tools for me ( I am a mechanic,or tech however you want to say it) are snap on or mac. Craftsman I have a ton of but I break them all the time! The good thing is the warranty is good on all of those tools!

  21. My father passed away afew years ago..... I have been cleaning it up for a long time now.... The biggest problem i have is the fact that he fixed everything so he has parts for everything and schemadics. The ossiliscopes and such I can use but I have little use for the parts or shcemadics. Does anyone have any ideas what I should do with them. I HATE to throghw out information but I do not have the room or the know how to use them. Input would be great.
  22. I have a zune and it is cool... I was not impressed that I could not put a digital copy of a movie i bought.I have messed around with i pod and i pod touch but I think it is all about personal preference. I think zune is more worth the money but thats just me! Good luck with my useless advice
  23. Well I feel dumb having to ask for help with this! I have an old wireless n card. I want to put it in a windows 98 machine.. But I dont know who made it or have any drivers for it. It has numbers from the fcc which are NDD9577270718. I could find no help with these numbers. the next set are GWAH27n89C1200178 these also did not help me. Does anyone have any ideas on how to find drivers for this and whom made it??
