I think someone is fucking around with your caps lock. Be wary of intruders.
The cooldown is still there, as of last weekend.
Run it in windowed fullscreen mode. I have Win7 64, and if I get an IM, or want to switch tunes, I just move to the other screen and click something, then click back on WoW and continue playing. Fullscreen will generally run better, but I get a solid 60fps in windowed fullscreen with a mid-range (now probably sub-midrange) gfx card with everything maxed out, so it makes little to no difference to me.
If that doesn't fix it, then the fault will lie elsewhere.
Be glad you don't have a yahoo account. I get 10-20 emails a day in languages I don't even recognise. It would be awesome if they had a system to block mails in non-, but alas, they do not, so I can barely bring myself to log into it these days.
So you're the second 'dimest', right?
I learned something today. Thank you
Ah Aluminum. Like Uranum
Weird that out of the whole periodic table Aluminum/ium is the only one we can't agree on.
Either way, Good day, sir.
Better in that MP cheating is far less prevalent.
Also, SSX is PS3 only.
Other than that, fuck that shit. I have all 3 current gen consoles, and they're barely getting a look in. If a game is available on the PC, I'll never get the console version.
You had your retina locked in a box? Holy shit.
When we pass our buddies on the road, we get to high five with the right hand, the proper hand.
There's a GFWL patch easily available for GTA4. It's the first thing I did after getting it on Steam.
walk-over pickup and the loot-pet only work with money, actual items still need to be clicked. Or they did in the last iteration of the beta I played.
It really is.
You can have more than one source supply power to a light bulb. In the case of the brakes, it's a physical switch. In the case of the hazard lights, it's a physical switch linked to a relay. The ABS only comes into play when the computer detects a wheel lock-up, and it does it by reducing the braking pressure, in pulses. If there is no computer response, then the brakes will apply normally.
My car is ~6 months old (and Japanese). It has a physical switch for the brake lights. As did the 10+ cars before that.
Braking *has* to be a mechanical system. If the computer that controls your fly-by-wire goes up the shitter, then you would be left with a car than cannot be stopped, unless you're lucky enough to be going up a hill. Nobody would sign off on such a thing. There is a chance the brake servo may not work, but it's very unlikely, as there have been brake servos long before there were ECUs, and I can't think of a good reason to try to make a brake servo electronic.
If this womans brake lights came on at all, then all the time they did not come on, she was NOT braking.
What happened with your father in law is likely different. I had a Peugeot that would also rev itself, but only at idle. This was most likely due to a faulty sensor, as it would be alright after a service, and other people I know with similar age peugeots had the same thing. A solution for your father in law would be to take it out of gear and apply the handbrake when he's stopped, like his instructor probably mentioned.
The problem is that 'bad users' may not know any of this, and when a window comes up that says 'enter root password to install software', they will happily type it in. If it says 'You need to enter the root password on initial execution', they will type it in there too, as long as the end result is pictures of Shakira, or whoever the fuck.
