    Another voice to the pile. Is Xbox live open to anyone yet, or is it only certain areas and people?

    Do multivitamins really work/get absorbed?

    I talked to a nurse one time about pills and they call a lot of the vitamins out there bedpan bullets. She suggested checking you vitamins by putting them in some vinegar for a couple of hours and see if they disolve. If not they are a complete waste. On a another note there is Doctor Joel...

    Help choosing a Sci/Fi book/series. Anything comparable to the "Foundation" series?

    I'm terribly embarrassed about giving the wrong author for the Mars series. It's been over 16 years or so since I read them and I was reading a book a day through high school of Sci-Fi. I guess the old brain got them mixed up.:b As far as Anne McCaffrey is concerned most of her books are...

    Help choosing a Sci/Fi book/series. Anything comparable to the "Foundation" series?

    You can also try Ben Bovas 'Red Mars' 'Green Mars' 'Blue Mars' amazingly enough about the terraforming of Mars. Or my all time favorite authoress(?) Anne McCaffrey. She has a few series out. Dragon Riders of Pern, which is sci-fi not fantasy. Then she has another series about people who...

    Worst commute to work

    When we bought our new house in a different city I was doing loops from home to work to new house.(To prewire the whole house for speakers, RCA's and security, among other things.) I put 50 000 km on it in one year. (Appprox 32000miles.) I blew the 5 year warranty in less than 2.5 years of...

    yet another "car audio?" thread

    rockford fosgate is head and shoulders above the other two brands. Even if you're tight for cash still try to get a small 4 channel amp for all speakers or a 2 channel amp for the rear speakers. The difference in the sound quality will be well worth it. The rated power on the Head units...

    Car stereo: noise problem (long)

    Spark plug wires can give off some nasty noise. I had the regular Honda wires and switched to the high performance Canadian Tire brand. The high pitched whine drove me nuts so I returned them. The Ground Loop Isolator only works for so long. It absorbs with small capacitors (I believe) and they...
