    Dell Home vs. Small Business

    Does anyone know the difference between buying a Dell laptop from Home/Small Office versus from Small Business? It's the E1505 vs. 6400. They appear like the same exact machine. When I price out my two identical models, the Small Business version is significantly ($300 or so) less expensive...

    Dell Laptop Monitor descriptions

    I recently returned my laptop after my HD crashed. I'm now in the market for another laptop and have been looking at Dell's...and possibly Toshiba. I am getting rather confused with all the different monitor styles these days. The previous laptop had a glossy screen. I really liked it at...

    Anyone play Pirates!

    Just wondering if anyone has played the new version of Pirates! It's GREAT! A bit repetitive but lots of fun. Sort of reminds me of Freelancer, but on the ocean instead of space. I'm currently playing on the default years, so the Spanish have loads of ports in the west. I've been mostly...

    Prayer for business trip

    I'd appreciate prayers for safety and protection while I am away on a business trip. I leave early on the 30th and arrive back on Dec. 11th. I haven't flown in several years and am a bit nervous to fly again. And please also pray for my family (wife and 2 daughters) as I will be gone for awhile...

    Call of Duty: united Offensive

    Anyone else played/playing this game? It has got to be some of the most intense action in a game. This game is heart-pounding intense. I'm currently at Foy which was a fairly hairy fight in real life. This takes place in Bastogne. What's interesting is 'Medal of Honor: Spearhead' has a Bastogne...

    Star Wars DVD

    Who's excited about the Trilogy coming out on DVD this Tuesday? Have you caught the Ken Burns documentary on A&E this week? It has got to be one of the best (if not THE best) documentaries I have ever seen on the trilogy. The full 2.5 hour version is available on the DVD. I just wish the...

    I'm back

    I had taken a hiatus after losing my job back in January. I came here every so often, but not nearly like I had been. I found a new job in May and started on June 1st. Unfortunately, the job was 2 hours away. I ended up commuting back and forth on the weekends and did not have internet...

    Can someone please tell me how I can change my Back button in IE so it doesn't want to requery everytime I go back? On other computers, I hit the Back button and I always just get right back to the page I had in memory. On my computer I keep getting messages like "Warning: Page Expired." And...

    Got a job offer

    I really haven't been around much the last several weeks. I've been dealing with being unemployed and it actually leaves me with less free time to spend, so I haven't been on-line much. I've been out of work for 4 months and got my first job offer on Thursday. I can really use prayer support on...

    My computer sounds like a jet engine

    A few months after we bought a computer, the fans started really kicking in and sounding like a jet engine. This has been going on for close to 2 years and I have finally decided to bring it up. It only happens when the computer starts doing any type of extra or major work. In fact, the fan...

    Certification

    Being a bit disillusioned regarding the software development industry, I have been contemplating a move into the IT industry.  The problem is, I already have over 10+ years in software development, and I don't really want to restart a career at ground zero with a wife and 2 kids to support.  But...

    KOTOR: Help on Manaan

    As I am requesting help, there may potentially be spoilers in this thread. I am stuck on Manaan. I am currently in the Sith Base and am unable to open the door to the medical room. Everytime I click on the door, it says it's locked. I've completely finished the rest of the Sith Base, except for...

    Prayer for a potential job

    As some of you know, I am currently outta work. It's rather bleak out there. All the recruiters are saying they have nothing for me. Well...I just found out there is a company which fits my skills and it is super close to where I live. Like a 10 minute walk. It's in a little building which I...

    Ugggghhh

    I haven't been on-line too much lately or played games.  I've been trying to only get on at night, and that's only for a quick 'catch up'.  The last 2 months, I think I average about 1 game night a week.  I'm trying to spend more time with my wife at night and also I'm just wiped out each day...

    Knoppix

    Hey! I am excited to say this is my first post using Linux. I am planning to turn our old PII into a print server and possibly game server. I need something with remote/terminal login and I can't do that with Windows. Someone at work got me Knoppix to try since it stays all on CD. Pretty cool...

    The Gospels

    Figured since we are just jumping around, let's have a Gospel thread instead of each separate book. Tax Collector's: Why the bad reputation? There are lots of passages we've read which include tax collector's mentioned in a poor way.  They are painted in an extremely bad way.  But why is this...

    Need Help with MoH: Breakthrough

    Hi. Does someone have any hints for me on the part where you are on the 2nd floor of a house, there are grenade launchers, and there are tanks rolling in to the village? You need to stop these tanks, but I am finding it extremely difficult. I am playing on hard difficulty, so the strategy may...

    Matthew

    Matthew 7 I really like the judging others section. I think it's extremely wise what Jesus says. I have found it to be so true. Those who judge others are judged right back. Those who keep their mouths shut end up being respected and honored. One of the most common things we do is to point out...
