Hi all, I thought I have to share that: :lol: A major British medical journal on Tuesday retracted a flawed study linking the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine to autism and bowel disease. “It has become clear that several elements of the 1998 paper by Wakefield ... are incorrect,” the internationa...

what are you doing with that machine?
gaming or mostly office work?
what processor?

6gb of ram is quite enough in most cases.
i don't use windows that much, so i can't tell if win7 is worth the monay.
ever tried Linux instead?

The information given on this page is a bit thin. I googled the term "Autism insurance reform" and as it seems, several states of the US have signed something similar, and the idea always was, that insurance companies would have to pay something around up to $36,000 a year for treatments and therapi...

Don't tell them the truth about their favourite delusion (eg don't tell a Apple computer freak, that Apple sucks as much as Microsoft, that Steve Jobs is a suit and Apple product politics are as monopolistic as any other 'bad' companies and that the only reason why everybody thinks apple is cool, is...

I'm from Germany and when reading posts about that kind of trouble in american schols, I'm happy, that I grew up here. At least on higher educating schools (called Gymnasium here) bullying (if at all) is kept strictly verbal and is by far not so intense. If your friend had problems to explain the co...

that you remember your dreams very often has nothing to do with sleeping phases or missing them. it just means, that you mostly wake up during rem sleep. (but that you don't feel rested isn't a very good sign). in any case most people go through the different phases several times during one night, w...

yep, the thing is dead.

reason why it's working after some off time is most likely heat related. it's working, until it gets hot, then need cooling time.

but no matter what's the reason, backup right now, then exchange the thing before it gives up finaly.

Let me guess how you can't keep your mouth shut, you feel like you are lying if you don't say it or it's the urge of you to say it, you can't stand the feeling inside so you have to say it to get rid of it? So it's like a compulsive thing then. Or it feels like people want to censor you and you hav...

Can be true, but doesn't have to... Looking back at my school time, I found, that in fact I was acting quite arrogant to some of my schoolmates and using my intellect against them. Where they made rude jokes about me, I thought, that being "sarcastic" about them would be less rude. What it wasn't. S...

I'm slightly better off wth that problem, because most times I know, that I say something that's "not to be said". Still I often can't keep it to myself. Some may call it inocent, others prefer the word "honest". Example: Me working in a company, where all the others are big fans of Apple and think ...

Normally, I would just proceed to cut off all contact with a girl after such a rejection in accordance with what my friends say and general internet advice, but I didn't this time. Intuitively, it does make sense to cut off contact. Why be platonic friends with somebody you want to have a relations...

don't worry about that. most jobs students do, like serving in restaurants or filling shelves in supermarkets, are of no use later on. nobody asks about that kind of job when you apply for 'real' work in the profession you will study.

for the connection breakdown:

Are you sure it's the connection? Could be your browser as well, try to install at least one alternative browser (FireFox, Opera...) and try if that one has the same problems.
