  1. 40. The university got a 69 though.
  2. When I saw the title I just assumed it was EdipisReks -- anyway, here's to a quick recovery. My dad had a similar tear and he was back to his jogging routine within 4 months or so.
  3. Nevermind. I found a solution that is just not worth the effort until my D:/ drive starts getting full. Here it is for those interested: http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=179315&page=3
  4. Hi all, I have recently been optimizing my laptop for better performance. At the onset, I reinstalled Windows (Vista Business 32bit) sans bloatware using two partitions, planning to put the OS and programs on the C:/ partition and all data on the D:/ partition. I noticed that I only had the option for giving the C:/ partition 60% of my 160GB drive. I figured this must have been necessary, but this turned out to be far from the case. The partition is not even half full, and I don't plan to install too many new programs in the future, maybe 5-10GB more at the most, so I don't need 40GB of free space. I wanted to reduce the drive in size by about 25% and give this space to the D:/ drive. Moving the space to unallocated space was easy, but I can't get it added to the D:/ drive via any of the Windows methods. I have downloaded a program called BootIt Next Generation, but I'm having trouble figuring it out. Before I do anything that will destroy my system, do any of you have any advice? Oh, and yes, my D:/ partition is backed up.
  5. Thanks. There's a somewhat interesting story to tell but I'll have to find the time later.
  6. Hangover averted with 800mg of ibuprofen and a tall, cold glass of water.

    I'm an asshat

    To be fair, this could be meant as a grape skin chopper.
  8. An embryo was created which has genetic information from two mothers and one father, successfully making the donor woman's cell produce healthy mitochondria in lieu of the primary mother's diseased mitochondria. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/7227861.stm

  10. Almost always beer. Sometimes a mixed drink or two, and sometimes even straight liquor, but for the most part it's beer (and not the fermented rice-infused crap either ).
  11. What is this "snow" you speak of?
  12. Won't matter anyway. Currently, Russia has a mixed (i.e., presidential and parliamentary) system, and the PM is no more than a figurehead. Putin's party has an overwhelming majority in the parliament, so he will probably just become the PM and have all the power transferred to himself again, making the president a figurehead.
