My windows HDD has been making the occasional odd 'cli-thunk' noise over the past week, and today, it went 'cli-thunk clickyclickyclickyclickyclickyclicky' then crashed, leaving me with a black screen stating "No hard disks detected!". Luckily, after turning it off and on again, it booted in to...
Well, the batteries in my Sharp EL-531W just decided to dissolve the terminals, leaving me with a dead calculator. Bastards. That calculator had been sufficient to do most things, but rather than bother trying to fix it (I did find it in a paper recycling bin after all :P) I decided to either...
Yes, that's right, name that robotic personality! A simple game for simple minds, as it were. Now, the rules are simple:[list type=decimal]
The host disguises a politician or celebrity voice with a vocoder (more below)
The result is uploaded here
The others try and guess who that person is...
Here's a lovely little program that I've been using for a while now. LMMS stands for Linux multimedia studio, but it's recently been released on Windows too. It's definitely worth a try if you've ever fancied making music.
Basically, it's a free alternative to...
Yes, you read that correctly. One hundred trillion dollars:
And there's me thinking the only time I'd see 100 trillion on a banknote was in the Calamity James bit of my Beano :P
Me. I'm 17 and that.
I got a leather quiver, two books, an automatic gibbon cleaner*, a dvd, and a set of driving lessons, the first one being today at 2:30. I'll be driving home from 2 miles away today (allegedly :o) following a run down on what everything does, which is quite a feat for...
I'm looking for a cheap (ideally <£40) MP4 player that plays MP4s (You don't say :shock:), MP3s, and photos. There seem to be a lot out there, but I'm not sure how good or reliabe they are. Suggestions, anyone (aside from "increase your budget you stingy git")?
Here's the deal:
Two computers (1 PC, 1 laptop) running Windows XP Home
A Belkin F5D7632-A wireless router
PC is connected via ethernet to the router, but the laptop is wirelessly connected
The internet's being shared fine
However, it recently (well, a few months ago) stopped sharing files and...
And thus the prophecy was completed.
Here is a short flash animation* story mostly made from Taleworlds posts that we've found amusing over the past few years.
Credits, and thanks
Me: The flash file, idea, "script"
Seff: That oh so shouty voice
Highelf: Criticisms, part of the idea, hunting...
There appears to be a minor bug whereby emoticons occasionally look stretched or squeezed. I have seen this in firefox 3 on a linux machine and with firefox 2 on two windows machines. Anyone else getting this?
Google has decided to “turn off the lights” on the UK homepages (a.k.a. making the page render in a horrible black colour :x) today, as some sort of way of getting people interested in an event by the name of Earth Hour. What they want us all to do is turn off our lights from 8PM to 9PM (in...
I've had the Turkish one of these for quite a while now, and I would certainly recommend anyone wanting to learn the basics of a foreign language by themselves before going to that country pick on of these up.
In the book, priced quite nicely at £4.99, you get:
(note: I normally use Ubuntu on a separate HDD for my main computing, but my parents tend to use the Windows XP install we got with the computer some 5 years ago.)
Whenever I start XP now, explorer will not start. I have to go into task manager and start it manually. Shortly after...
This has nothing to do with molestation, sorry to disappoint anyone :P
This is a simple game. All you must do is search through the member's last 5 pages of posts (NOTE: Only. No more.) above you, and copy them to make a fairly legible post of about 20 words. But...
-You must copy...
It's that time of time again, where my knowledge of a subject is next to nothing, whilst the collaborative knowledge of Taleworlds surpasses any review magazine or website. Last time it was air rifles (which got a great result, thanks shmendict), this time, it's about PDAs and Linux.
Who remembers when it was allowed to be funny? I'm thinking of The Young Ones; Bottom; Blackadder; The Vicar of Dibley; Shooting Stars; Alexei Sayle; Goodness Gracious Me; The Day Today and perhaps even Mr. Bean.
Now, with the sole exception of the panel shows (Mock the Week, HIGNFY, QI etc.)...
I am using the town_default mission template for my new town, but something mysterious happens. Whenever I press enter on the town menu, it gives me the following error, although pressing ignore twice solves it:
Here is the town menu code:

Clod y Cledd
Celfyddyd o hyd mewn hedd - aed yn uwch
O dan nawdd tangnefedd;
Segurdod yw clod y cledd,
A rhwd yw ei anrhydedd. ~ William Emrys
Clod y Cledd (fame of the sword, /ˈkloːd ə ˈkleːð/) is a new RPG total conversion mod for Mount&Blade.
The mod is set in a realistic fantasy 13th...
