    cyclic redundancy error - USB flashdrive

    So I got a cyclic redundancy error while copying data to an 8GB flash drive I just got from MicroCenter. The data wasn't critical and it was still on my hard drive. I moved the rest of the data off from the USB flash drive, ran CHKDSK (no errors) and reformatted. Should I: 1) try to get a...

    Buying a used HDTV on Craigslist?

    Call me a curmudgeon, but electronics are things that I like to buy new or recertified from the manufacturer, not second-hand from an individual. You should calculate mileage/gas into the equation, especially since you get free shipping deals all the time on the internet.

    40" HDTV Shipping via UPS. Question...

    I would be wary of good deals on ebay about displays just due to the fact of extended warranties and dead pixels, etc... How easy can you get an RMA or the problem fixed? As far as the UPS insurance goes, I ship things out every day for my business. Each shipment is covered up to $100 by UPS...

    GMail questions (labels)

    labels work well enough like folders for me. it's better too, because since all the message can be lumped together, i don't have to remember which folder its in to quickly search in all labels...why pop it down though? i let google deal with the harddrive space so i don't have to.

    Is my setup wierd?

    Studio quality monitors should deliver good, clean, crisp sound reproduction with tight bass. What's weird about wanting that? My assumption here is that they are also very well constructed. As for your question about damage, I would think that only playing music for a prolonged period of time...

    HDTV Recommendations

    Agreed GJSNeptune there are too many TVs to choose from. I've heard good things about the PANASONIC TH-42PX80U. Saw it for around $800 - $950 with free shipping (Sear's, Abes of Maine, B&H). You might want to check it out. My father-in-law a Sharp AQUOS (can't remember the model, but it's a 42")...

    XP re-activation after new MB

    I think the only limitation would be only one computer and that you could do it as many times as you needed, if it wasn't abused (calling in every other day). In my experience, they have only asked a few questions and I had to state that I had reinstalled XP and it existed only on one machine.

    My first shoot. More questions, CC welcome.

    I still have trouble with manual settings sometimes. I have found John Hedgecoe's books useful. Sometimes when I go out to shoot, I use the auto mode for a few pictures to gather information on the current light condition, shadows, etc... I go back and look at the aperture and shutter speeds...

    Free Slice of Pizza at Pizza Hut (Today Only)

    i think it says one slice per person. so.... couldn't you just get back in line whilst eating the first slice? i've seen people do this at ben and jerry's before on free cone day. with gas prices, i'm sure you'd burn more gas than a whole pizza collecting slices from around town :)
