wireless lans are still just lans...

but LAN sounds all cabled and tied down, the wireless aspect makes it even more impressive
either way, I feel really sorry for these guys, they make me feel normal
9 years ago
how does local area network sound cabled ;/
9 years ago
I don't know, I can't think this late...
i guess cause LAN to me means the non wireless part of the network and for a device to be connected to a network without utilizing wireless technology it has to be connected with a cable, and hence tied down
that is why I love wireless lan technology and laptops :)

hey dw, im pretty sure my video card is dying but i want a second tech's opinion. im using my laptop but i have it hooked to an external 24" monitor. when i run both the laptop screen and the external display, there is some faint dead pixels that flicker in random locations on both screens for just a few seconds at a time. ive been running the external display as the primary and the laptop screen disabled, its worked fine for the last few weeks like that but tonight its started to flicker like theres a refresh problem. it only seems to do it whenever its sat in one spot for a long time where the bottom gets hot. is this a sign that its going out? i never had either problem when i used to run it with an external 19" but i just want to be sure. its a few years old and im just assuming the card might be on its last leg. i need to sell it on ebay before it dies.

and another question for all you CPA's on here. im doing a paid internship right now for a local hospital doing general IT stuff. since this laptop is a few years old and (possibly)going dead, can i buy a new one and take it as a tax writeoff if i use it for work?
9 years ago
get work to buy it for you, that is where all of my IT equipment comes from, you just have to check it at the door when you leave :/
about your graphics card, i would check the software and firmware for updates first but it most likely is a hardware problem. heat will do that, a cooling pad is the best investment a laptop owner can put money into to extend the life of the computer and its parts. usually the battery goes first, then the cooling fan and graphics card, after that cpu over heating and auto shut downs! loads of fun.
a 'few years' can be a long time for a laptop especially if you run it all the time without off breaks, I hibernate mine whenever I will be away for more then 30 mins but it still doesn't help the hours on end I can sit there on it without it getting a chance to cool down and rest.

i already told you, its either your browser or the website not the bluetooth since you stopped getting the pop ups, the rest is just a coincidence. I'm not going into any more detail about the website side because you say its mainly mucho that is acting up and my advice and suggestions might be detrimental to my health

If you want to get technical it should be fussball, since it's german. Either way, you're still a douchebag.

Football. They're kicking with their FEET, think about it dumbass.
Now for American Football. They pass/throw the ball with their HANDS ..
Despite that, British football was made wayyyy before the Americans stole the name.

don't hold back camy, let us know how you really feel about the subject

technically after columbus invented the united states, he made his own game similar to football that the natives were playing... the name comes from a bastardization of the quechua word ph'un bola

9 years ago
Actually, the Americans call it soccer not soccer ball, dumbshit.
9 years ago
Historically speaking, football was a generic term for many similar games with varying sets of rules, including rugby, American football, association football (this is the one Americans call soccer), Australian football, et al. When football clubs and leagues started forming, rugby style football was actually most popular. As time progressed, Europe took a liking to association football, while the U.S. took a liking to gridiron football. Since the two games are quite different, Americans took to calling association football "soccer" and Europeans called gridiron football "American football."

The term "soccer" comes from "Associaton football." Association is commonly abbreviated assoc., and somehow this developed into the word socca, and later soccer.

stolen from a smarter man then me but i believe it.
