Any programmers here that is familiar with BK? Those that I knew that could of been of assistance, like toedder, mctrivia & hexkid are no longer here at BK. I have some questions and maybe a deal that I could offer you if BK is sold as planned. Nothing etched in stone but I would like to know if anyone is interested in technical support.

ketchuplover: Thought a while aout that and am still not sure what to think. Because it feels right what you say, but I am asking myself how to handle for example books. Lets say you sold a book about chess strategy one day and twenty years later you do not agree with yourself any more. Do you have the right to make all owners of your book put it into the dustbin?

What is with newspapers and any printed item in the worlds archives?

...and so on...

I would recommend converting to linux. Zorin OS 8 is an easy distro to use as it looks like windows. Free, will run easily on older computers and faster than windows.

ketchuplover: I've had no problems with it. I think the "secret" is to uncheck that box that was there before completing the download. (I don't remember now what it was about). At POGO, the forums suggested unchecking that box, for less problems. I did uncheck it, and I've had zero issues. Possibly coincidence, though, I suppose. For some reason I practically never experience problems when other people do.

Isn't it amazung how effective Apple's marketing strategy is? People want to purchase a tablet and they say "I want an iPad."

Jelly bean is really just a refinement of the OS over ice cream sandwich.

What are the main things you want to get out of it ?

WellyWales: Actually there are only a few ipads to choose from, only nice thing about Apple, that you are not blinded by choice. However, if you are looking at tablets generally the choice really explodes.
Is it specifically an iPad you want?

I guess some of it depends on whether you want Wi-Fi or not and many other options.

Subject: Firefox-Browser on TOR for Mac - Javascript and Flash
Hi all,

I am trying to install TOR on my Mac, which is a software for anonymous browsing. It comes with an inbuilt firefox-like browser, but with no extension.

Up to now I wasnt able to install shockwave/flash add-ons to be able to watch TV-streams while using TOR.

There are some installation-tips in the web and I tried a lot...

Any suggestions?

Announcing Outreach Program for Women Internships for the Linux Kernel: Please Apply

The Linux Foundation is funding three Linux kernel internships through the Outreach Program for Women administered by the GNOME Foundation. These internships have a $5,000 stipend and come with a $500 travel grant to attend and speak at LinuxCon this fall. This is a great opportunity to work with a mentor and get started with kernel development, which as many articles report, is a great way to land a high-paying job.

Not really a Computer problem, more of a Website problem (which i dont know a lot about lol).

A friend of mine runs a Cheer-leading pack of young girls. They have won awards everywhere, and even at there young ages have traveled the world. She needs a website, and asked me where is the best/cheapest place to buy a name and hosting site for the cheerleaders ? She already have the names she want for the page and they are available too (as in no one has them yet).

Any ideas or help would be great anyone :)

(Maybe BrainKing should sponsor them lol)

Found the answer... Unlike my old card, the new one has pre-set min/max range on the GPU and memory for over-clocking. So the Catalyst Control centre no longer needs to test in this range for stability problems. Although, it is advised to keep below 95%.

Above that, the likes of MSI afterburner are required with the safeties disengaged. And in my case (which I am doing) add additional cooling.

Does anyone know whether there is a problem with the AMD overdrive function (within the Catalyst Control functions)and certain ATI graphics cards? In this case a ati radeon 6450.

The auto tune and test stability do not appear, even though on my old card they were visible and worked.

I used the manufacturers version of the Catalyst control centre, I've not tried the ATI version.. so it could be that, just I wondered if anyone has had similar or has heard of this problem.

Cheers :)
