    New job, new location, moving to Chantilly, VA!

    I can take a wild guess or two at where you'll be working at . I haven't been on this forum in a long time but I think I remember what you got your PhD in years ago so it is a good match. Lived in this area my entire life. Let me know if you have any questions or need help. Jeff

    So, Aberdeen Maryland?

    Wow. Didn't think the BRAC migration was starting so soon. I'm in the Northern Va area but BRAC is huge around here since FT Belvoir is taking on a bunch of people. I'm not sure about your list of choices but I'll ask around to see what I can find out. Jeff

    Am I overreacting or should I be this upset with my girlfriend? (long read)

    Man, sounds like stuff I went through in my early/mid 20's. Ughh, headaches and BS. There are a couple of ways to handle the situation. Getting worked up and jealous will do NOTHING except mess with your head and slowly screw up everything in your life (such as your job). Anyone that is truly...

    CLD-99 won't play after shipping

    Kurtis is "the man" as far as laserdisc player knowledge goes. I feel quite lucky to have him in the area (as does Phil). He built me a Pioneer 704 player a few years ago from several different broken players, tested it out and the darn thing still runs like a champ today.

    Holy crap! I've been a member here over 10 years!!!!

    Me too. Time flies. Hell I remember back in 95-96 seeing Ron's postings in the alt.rec.laserdisc newsgroups about this new "home theater forum" on the Delphi online service.

    Cheapest honorable software store?

    Dennis, if you are still looking for Adobe Acrobat shoot me a PM. I can get fully licensed copies for a cheap price using my student discount at school.

    Article: Apple to AT&T: Drop Dead

    To be fair to AT&T these problems would have happened to any other carrier had Apple signed with. I don't think AT&T (or Apple) ever imagined the strain on the wireless network that the iphone can use. Things will improve as the network infrastructure improves. Growing pains should be expected.

    My next scanner

    Fujitsu scanners rock! They are highly regarded in the legal industry for their fast scanning and quality. We have a few 6120 scanners (which offer TWAIN compliance) at work and they run circles around the other HP and Canon models we've had in the past.

    Slow Cable Internet...help

    If things don't improve you have a couple of options. Maybe you could look into wireless internet service via your cell phone carrier. You can usually get DSL-like speeds. Or if you want to pay the money you could check into getting a dedicated business line such as a T-1 or fractional T-1...

    Slow Cable Internet...help

    Not much you can do except call them and have a technician come out. Sounds like that have an old and not properly designed network if you are seeing performance drops of that magnitude. The cable tech will probably check the signal strength on your coax. Are you running many splitters...

    Learn from my pain: backup BootCamp

    Dang, Are you sure SuperDuper will see the entire drive and not just the Mac OS? You might have been able to just copy the HAL.dll file back into the windows directory. That may have fixed the issue. If you couldn't boot up into Windows you could go about the old school method by...

    Has anyone used Spectracide brand "Terminate" Termite spikes..Thoughts?

    The big name companies like Orkin and Terminix charge way too much. Termite bait systems are good (at least the brand name ones) but they are entirely dependent on the termites finding the stakes. Termites travel in random paths underground and if they take the bait it's a slow and gradual...
