I recently came across a MBP that will not power up. Battery is shot, but the power cable is fine (green LED). Does the damn thing need a good battery to power on?
Anybody know of some Industrial electronic music? Like the music from the Descent 2 and 3 soundtracks, if you know of those games. Pretty much what I'm looking for is music that sounds like it being created from large machines and metal/power chords... if that made any sense.
Let me start off by mentioning that I literally found this computer in a dumpster. Don't ask. I'm a packrat.
After going through the post diagnostics and all that, I found the problem to be one of the ram modules, so I took both sticks out and replaced them with ecc registered ram.... if thats the correct term.
So the computer worked fine, but occasionally at loading windows, the machine would restart, and take its sweet fuckin time doing it too. I also noticed that it would do it primarily when I tried to load Mozilla while the start-up apps were still loading. But it still randomly did it throughout. It would do the restart once or twice before it would load fine. The comp made a strange clicking noise when it turned off.
So, I removed the HD and replaced it with a brand new one. For some reason, the computer will not see my 80 gb barricuda Seagate HDs... but seems to see everything else fine.
Everything worked great until now, when I booted up and tried to load mozilla on my fresh copy of XP. Again, I was being impatient and couldn't handle the measly 60 second complete start-up. It crashed. Computer restarted, but would not go to post for quite some time.
It's working fine now. I'm starting to think that it may be a video issue. Makes sense why it takes so long to go to post. While the computer is awesome, the vcard sucks balls. 64 MB PCI-e nvidia nvs 280. Which has a DMS-59 connector and everything.
But there are no damn errors in the event log or anything.
Xp is NOT set to reboot automatically after a system failure.

I really need to get one. Hopefully after xmas I can get one just so I can hop on Halo 3 and yell at my teammates about how dumb they are.
Seriously, if you get in a warthog and drive off without letting anyone in the back, you deserve to get rocketed by a teammate.
Also, just because you are losing, doesn't mean you get to go around bashing in your friends skulls.
And the random jackass that just loves to team-kill. I've gotten to the point where I just shoot the guy in the head at the beginning.
Blarg. I love Halo.

So the next time I want to talk about my happy trip I had, don't you dare fucking judge me. I smoke weed instead of taking some med that will turn me into a zombie. I smoke weed instead of taking pain meds. Keep that in mind next time you take 4 or more of your painkiller. You are actually damaging your body. Just like *gasp* a drug. In fact, most pain meds contain acetaminophen, which in an overdose will shut down not only your liver, but pretty much all your other organs.
And for those of you that like your prescription pain meds, realize that what you are taking in are opiates. You know what else is an opiate? Opium. HEROIN. And guess what. You can make both of those from poppy plants. Ya know, those fucking seeds in those delicious muffins.
Also, if you have morning glories, keep in mind that you are actually growing a drug. Morning glory seeds contain a lovely chemical called LSA (d-lysergic acid amide), which is pretty much a weaker version of LSD (d-lysergic acid diethylamide).
Well, I think I got my point across. None of you will be changed by it though, but thats ok, cause all I wanted to do is rant. Don't wanna do drugs? Fine by me, although I still say most of you fucking NEED them. For the love of god, smoke a bowl and stop crying and bitching.
Hmmm... God I love Seattle. By the way. I'm thinking of going to college in January. Guess what for? Chemistry.
Laters people! Have a good one. I know I will.

Its been a while. I typed this up for Mywaste, but decided to move it here
And we have lift-off.
So, just in case I haven't mentioned it previously, I have an awesome job.
I dunno why I never tried going into the food industry before. I mean, while tech support pays pretty good, those jobs have me wanting to kill myself within a month. I'm pretty happy where I am. Trouble-shooting went from "What do you mean your computer is 'wonky'???" to "Why the fuck do I have ice in my apron?"
Much better. Oh yeah, and the girls are hella cute. And nice. Except for Billie. She's pretty much a bitch. I've stopped regarding her existence completely, which sucks for her, cause I'm usually her busser when she works. Looks like she's cleaning her own fucking tables.
And of course, being me, I'm all gaga over one of the servers, Melinda. She makes me blow fuses when she smiles at me. But I'm being a lot braver than I was in the past. Ya know, trying to put myself out there.
She invited me to go drinking with her on Monday. You have no idea how happy that made me.
I'm gonna babble about some of my favorite people I work with.
Amber is another server, and she's a badass. She accepts my weirdness without batting an eye. Thats prolly cause she's kinda weird too :P I think she knows more about me than anyone else I work with, except for maybe Chris.
Now Chris is very gay. If I were gay, I would totally do him. He had a new hairstyle today, and I told him he looked cute.
What. I'm completely secure with my sexuality. Don't have to be gay to think another guy is good looking.
Anyways, Chris is in loop with my crush on Melinda. That's cause I told him. Odd how that works... I went to the gay guy to help me with a girl problem.
Blarg. My bro might move back in May, which would be pretty cool. If not, oh well, I'm ok in my closet anyways.
...Here I am, talking about gay guys and how I live in a closet. How appropriate.
Anyways, I think I may be done with that portion. Now I'm onto a subject that some of my friends in Idaho (you know who you are) seem to be using to pull away from me.
Drugs. If you have a closed mind, I would stop right here. Thing is, the people I'm putting this to think they have an open mind, and thats a bunch of shit.
Now, for those of you little fuckers that have been conditioned be society/parents to believe that all drugs are bad, you seriously need a fucking wake-up call. Stop being a conservative pansy and open your eyes. While I respect others decision to not do drugs, I do not respect the narrow-minded bullshit that you all are taken with. I see the phrase "Drugs are bad!" along the lines of "Obama is an arab!"
Don't get me wrong. There are certainly bad drugs. Like heroin, for example.
BTW, I'm sory, but if you have that thought process about Obama, I will prolly no longer talk to you.
Keep in mind I'm not talking about everyone I know in Boise. Just some
Perhaps you remember how I was. I hated everything. I was constantly angry at something. But now, I'm pretty content with life. People enjoy hanging out with me. Chemicals that affect your brain function temporarily helps me put things into perspective, and also halps me learn more about myself. LSD is an example of one of those chemicals.
Also, for your enjoyment, I wish to let you know that humans... meaning us... are genetically designed for the intake of THC. ...That's weed, by the way.
Which is funny, cause I know plenty of people in Boise that could do with a toke every once in a while. I mean, seriously, you people are so uptight and moody and in general unbearable to talk to half the time cause you are busy complaining about something that doesn't even matter. Which infuriates me to no end. And furthermore, you do NOTHING to change it.
But you know what? I guess it doesn't matter. With all your stress and frustration and in general your lack of being able to think about something in a logical manner, you will die soon anyways.
But like I said. I respect someone's decision not to do drugs, as long as it is an informed decision and not based on red-state fundamental bullshit.
I'm getting like this cause in a dispute, thats what it boils down to for some of my friends. "Well, he's always on drugs."
Here is something to think about.
There has not been one recorded case of death by marijuana. Not one. For you drinkers out there, how many people get drunk and decide to drive or go shoot someone? Yeah.
And think about this next time you take your cough syrup or your allergy medication. Did you know that most cough medications, including dayquil and nyquil, have DXM (dextromethorphan), a very powerful dissotiative hallucinogen?
Benedryl is actually a chemical called diphenhydramine, which again, is a powerful hallucinogen.
Just because you don't take enough of it to get those effects doesn't mean a goddamn thing. You can't have your cake and eat it too. It's like me saying that I did coke, but it was ok cause I only did a little line.
I'm not saying that this shit does not have an adverse affect on the body. Like alcohol, most of these drugs tax your liver, especially pharmisuticals. And I have to be smart about it. Like I will no longer do Coriciden for the fact that the other chemicals in the pill other than DXM can kill my liver and put me into a coma. DXM alone won't do that.
In fact, all your meds you take, all the advil and tylenol, are more damaging to you than a lot of these so-called bad drugs.
But like I said, there are those real bad drugs. Coke, heroin, meth.... Yes I did meth. And no, I don't anymore.
Ok so I've heard this works, but I can't get it to on my laptop. It has a wireless card, and I read somewhere that if you bridge the connections between your wireless network and your wired one, that you can use your laptop as the source of the interwebs. Case being I am attached to my friends wireless network, and it has internet, whilst my wired network has none. Although it would be slow as shit, I want to provide internet to my Xbox (NOT for Xbox live) and to my various PCs that do not have wireless cards.
So I bridge the connections, and it does that fine, however the wireless card is no longer able to connect to a network. But even then, I suppose it seemed to simple to be true.
Any ideas? Thoughts? A cookie, perhaps?
