I thought the number was supposed to be around 300 million...
That only counts as one.
So if you own a AMD system you will not receive audio, chipset, video, or any other drivers for your XP system and must upgrade or use an outdated legacy version.
Ummm, yeah. Microsoft is going to stop releasing security patches for the OS. If you're still running XP, using older video drivers should be the least of your concerns.
No, but when you're still on a 56K modem the service packs are pretty slow
For a few months I am consulting in San Jose and driving from Berkeley. I can't wait for all of those folks to move to the cities and get off the roads! Typical commute is 1.5 hours to drive no more than 49 miles. Even getting on the road at 6 AM doesn't beat the traffic.
Typos in the problem aside, most engineers I know wouldn't have either the inclination or ability solve that kind of problem. The reactions to it would vary from x "I forgot that shit as soon as I graduated".to a full blown "wtf".
And between both my wifes job and my own, we actually know actually quite a lot of engineers.
That is clearly a problem for mathematicians, not engineers.
Did you post this? (seeing as how you're posting as an AC and all...)
It's still a higher form of life than the propaganda sponge that believes every word the establishment commands them to think.
I'm not so sure. I do believe most biologists would classify primates as a higher form of life than sponges.
Much confusion is caused by people considering either of the two parties "Left" or "Right". They're both "Right" in the sense that they are not representing organized labour and both represent sections of capitalism. Granted, the democrats usually represent the smarter sections (white collar, Silicon Valley, high tech) and the Republicans more the older entrenched sections (defense contractors, oil, heavy industry, agriculture). The whole idea one section of capital is somehow progressive and the other is not, is a bit silly: one section is just a bit smarter than the other, but both will do whatever it takes to hold on to power.
Still, I'd rather be ruled by smart overlords who try to avoid blowing up the planet (and just get a blow job instead of blown-up), than by rather dumb overlords who say into open mikes that nukes are on the way to Moscow. But don't assume either one of them has your best interests at heart. It's more that one party has more interests in common with us than the other.
Which wasn't a point for most of the people who were buying a new laptop or similar system. USB printers still worked fine, same with mouse, keyboards etc. It was a very minor subset of people who had a problem with Vista.
And when I recently switched from Vista to Windows7, it was very hard to spot the difference.
Granted, that was back when "www.hp.com" was an invalid URL and you had to use "www.hp.boise.com" to get a printer driver, but still....
Was that also back in the day when the search engine was altavista.digital.com?
There are no games on this system.
