    Mouse Acceleration is driving me crazy

    You can try this Terminal: defaults write .GlobalPreferences com.apple.mouse.scaling -1 defaults write .GlobalPreferences com.apple.trackpad.scaling -1 It defaults the speed to something incredibly slow I believe though, and there is no granular way to adjust that speed after, but you...

    Xbox 360 from 2005 that is suffering from RRoD. Can it be saved?

    Microsoft should be able to cover you still. My Xbox 360 was bought in 2006ish and it died mid 2010. I decided to see if any warranty applied, and while their website says the following: They should be repair it for free. They did for mine, I just filled in the information got an RMA...

    Bye bye F@H, hello BOINC

    After folding 1,302,576 points (Sad...but I never had a lot of machines, or a lot of processing power. Contributed what I could!), I have decided to stop folding and moved to BOINC as well. The array of different projects I can contribute there really interested me, and I have happily...

    using silverlight to pretty up a basic CRUD interface

    Sounds like you want to couple Silverlight + RIA services for simple DB capturing and editing. That is to say, it seems like you want to make the basic of basics in Silverlight, which luckily for you is wonderfully explained in an hour tutorial by MS...

    Is bitcoin frowned upon here?

    Yeah...don't ask me. I just saw a post on Reddit for it today. I am just as confused as to how they are Valuing the true worth of a BitCoin.

    Is bitcoin frowned upon here?

    Bitcoin is a digital currency which removes "the middle man" http://www.bitcoin.org/ Google recently released the code as well: http://www.cio.com.au/article/380396/google_releases_open_source_bitcoin_client/ The client generates "coins" via IDLE CPU cycles that are added to the...

    CompTIA Net+

    Going to have to agree with Quikstrumental. Sounds like you didn't take the time to grasp the concepts and information. I am studying for Net+ and VCP (which is pretty helpful due to the synergy between concepts). Which book are you studying off of? I am using the Network+ Exam Cram which...

    SSIS completing but not importing data?

    Seen it happen with poorly written SSIS packages at my last job is why. Our packages would pass the Oracle credentials, and if locked -- could not query the table, thus return 0 rows, but would continue through and manipulate 0 rows through the rest of the package. It would state completed...

    SSIS completing but not importing data?

    As you mentioned (or hinted at) I would look into the user permissions on both the SQL and ORACLE side. If your accounts have any timeouts (oracle) then this might explain why you can't query anything. Perhaps the account has become locked. What is the issue with the SQL User? If you...

    SSIS completing but not importing data?

    /Side Question - Semi Related: Why does the execution of the query take 4 hours to run? Are you querying the entire table data? You should alter your statements to only pull 100-200 rows instead of everything. So you can verify the break more quickly. Or is the execution taking that...

    SSIS completing but not importing data?

    You can attempt to debug this the long way if you choose. Inspect your SSIS package and see the SQL statements its preforming. Execute each of those statements in SMSS and watch the result (be sure to pass any variables into it that may be created on the fly). Continue manually performing...

    For sake of argument, we should compare this MMO that has actually made nods to being a WoW competitor, to, what alternative popular MMO? :p

    Yes, I understand all of this. Hell I played WoW Since launch, so I know of all the content that didn't exist etc etc. What I am saying, is that it is perfectly fair to compare to two. As you stated a few time, you make it seem like we shouldn't do that. WoW stands as the #1 MMORPG, and as...

    The thing is, you can* compare WAR to Classic WoW, on the sole basis, that Current WoW has essentially established what the MMORPG genre ought to be like in a grand sense. Any game coming out now, who wants to stand a chance in hell in the MMORPG market *has* to arrive with the feature sets WoW...

    This right here has been true of my Open Beta, HeadStart, and 1st week of WarHammer. I play as a Rune Priest, and everytime DPS comes smashing my face and I say in chat: "Please Protect you healers and we can heal you, then perhaps we could win." I get a load of : "stfu and heal" "you suck"...

    So when you guys go to play this game, do you keep getting patch updates and then you have to keep agreeing to the terms? Every darn time I login they update something! It's getting quite annoying agreeing to that thing every time I want to play :(

    The slow pace is bothering me, but its a different game, and a different style. /Shrug. Its a nice distraction until November. I'd say, maybe wait until they come out with a 10 day free trial of sorts to give it a go. Just so you don't end up blowing 50 bucks on a game you might not like.

    Not to be a party pooper -- But my fear is that the novelty of this (Siege an enemy's town) will fade rather quickly. You can only find the experience so awe-inspiring so many times. For example, as you mentioned trying to kill Illidian. The first time around that whole settings, feel...

    My one hope is that someone fill find a way (or the devs will implement a way) to change the fonts. *Sad Face* Er, and just a shameless bump on my earlier question: Will the patch update remove all the beta tags and rename the start menu folders and all that jazz? And secondly, for those...

    Its like Guild-wars where you get a debuff that stacks if you keep dying. Starts at 5% and goes up I think. I just remember having 25% at one point and I didn't know why. :) Pretty long debuff to, think it was 15 minutes.

    There is nothing to "get." As its all personal opinion. I think WoW is a better looking game, which many find me odd for. For me, I feel that WoW's graphics and art style feel much more cohesive in the grand scheme and "flows" better. As I mentioned in my post a few pages back, for me, the...
