    are you sure your ram is only 1.8v?
  4. The best argument against Prop 8

    What you mean is that you are picking and choosing definitions to support your poor usage of the word, only a 5% more people support it than don't. I also wonder how many people who voted yes on 8 did so not because it reflected their true feelings on the matter, but instead because of the constant fear mongering that was on TV, and yes campaign ads do sway peoples opinions.
  5. The best argument against Prop 8

    In that case: MOST people opposed prop 8 because 47% of registered voters is also a " large number". You are merely picking and choosing definitions to fit your incorrect usage of the word. If 50.1% of people had brown hair and you said "most" people had brown hair, very few people would agree with you. It's not "most" people, it's a small majority of the voters.
  6. The best argument against Prop 8

    OOPS you forgot: "a good (or great) many, a large number" your "most" is hardly larger than the number that voted against it, it's not "most" people OOPS, I suppose you must have missed this one to: "nearly all of", guess what? it's not "nearly all of", it's not "most", it's only slightly larger than half and it will never be: "the will of the people"
  7. The best argument against Prop 8

    Wrong again, it does not represent "most of them", only 52% of registered voters, voted yes on 8. That's barely a majority, is not "most" and certainly does not represent the "will of the people". Don't pretend to talk for californians when the amount of people who voted yes on 8 is only slightly larger than the people that voted no on 8.
  8. The best argument against Prop 8

    Obviously it did not reflect the "will of California residents" or 100% of the state would have voted yes on 8, but in reality only about 5% more of the population voted yes on 8, therefore it does NOT represent the "will of california residents" but instead just some of them.

  10. The best argument against Prop 8

    neither do the people from Utah who provided the majority of funding for yes on prop 8, I've lived here in CA for almost 30 years and noticed no difference whatsoever before/after {censored} marriage was legal, I can't say I've even seen a {censored} married couple, most of yes on 8 ads seemed to be fear mongering and I doubt that reflects the "will of California residents", letting {censored} marry hurts no one

  12. GA-P35-DS3l and E7200 Help

    "PCI Express Frequency [Auto]" set this manually to 100 also hit ctrl-F1 in the bios before going to the page where the overclocking settings are to see all settings "System Memory Multiplier(SPD) [Auto]" also you will need to set this to prevent overclocking your ram

  14. $300 - $400 Mb's are ludicrous with the downturn in the economy, intel is forecasting big losses next Q and they're trying to sell ridiculously priced chipsets?
  15. MSR Tools (Thermal Sensor)

    What's the source of this? (wants admin passwd) Also seems to occasionally go to 100% cpu utilization making the system completely non-responsive (reboot needed).
