  1. Seems to me that everyone is looking at the debate encompassing {censored} rights, the definition of marriage and civil union in a rather backwards way. Here's a thought I've been having lately: Marriage began hundreds of years ago as a religious institution, a Covenant with couple's God. (denomination non-withstanding.) Now, since our government wants to have it's fingers in everybody's pockets, it has co-opted Marriage as a legal institution. Government declares who can get married, and so now everyone is pissed off. Here is my solution: Strip all legalese from Marriage. Return it to the purview of Religion. If you're able to find a church in your denomination that will consecrate your union, then go for it. Let government keep its fingers out of our affairs. For legitimate legal purposes, such as taxes and census taking, stick EVERYONE under the Civil Union banner. Straight, {censored}, bi, mono, poly, theists, atheists; let everyone fall under the same rules, and leave Marriage to Religion. Let Civil Union cover everything in the legal arena. There, now everyone is happy. Discuss, and please keep it civilized. ~B-Mac
  2. You're right, of course. Here is the relevant information: e760 CPU Socket: LGA1366 Chipset: Intel X58 and ICH10R Audio chip: Realtek ALC889 SATA connectors: 6x SATA on ICH10R with Matrix RAID Additional storage connectors: ATA133 + 2x SATA on JMB363; 1x SATA + 1x eSATA on JMB362 LAN: Dual Realtek Gigabit I'll be attempting to run the hardware in my sig, I'm waiting on a few parts before I build it.
  3. I know this is a Gigabyte thread, but since there isn't an EVGA thread that I can find... Anyone had success in running SL on an EVGA Classified e760 with a w3520 cpu, an xfx 5870 gpu and an OCZ vertex 120gb as system drive? If so, pm me a link to the proper place, as I get no results when I try to search the forums.

    OSX on new 1156 socket motherboard!

    It's because there aren't any actual Macs out yet that use the p55/1156 ...You'll have to wait until 1) Apple releases a Mac with a P55 chipset, or 2) someone writes p55/socket 1156 kexts for OSX So you're probably out of luck for a while

    G5 case conversion

    Very nice build here. I bet you're excited for 10.5.7, since it will bring Core i7 and x58 native drivers to OSX. Be sure to let us know how your Xbench improves after the drivers are put into a distro

    Very nice work. I've had two of these cases sitting in my closet for a year, I can't seem to find enough time or money to finally mod them

    That Marriage dilemna...

    You're missing the point of the thread Fox.. IMO, government should have NOTHING to do with marriage, straight OR {censored}

    G5 modding advice

    Go to www.bit-tech.net and look up the g5 mods of Cyprio and Mr. Bean ...pretty awesome stuff
  11. You, sir, are absolutely right *salutes*
  12. It was a total disappointment for me as well. I almost got excited when he said that today was being focused on the Mac, but it was all downhill from there. The only bright spot was DRM-free iTunes

    President-elect Obama

    You're ignoring the fact that the Community Reinvestment Act (pushed by the Clinton Admin and the Congress at the time) is the primary reason for the current housing problems. There were articles out as early as 1998 predicting what would happen, and they were IGNORED. So while Clinton may have seemed like a good thing at the time, we're currently dealing with troubles that originated under his term (as well as Bush's) You can't ignore the pillars of lending just to get poor people into houses. When they can't make any more payments, we get into the exact mess we've gotten into

    President-elect Obama

    The only thing I do agree with Obama on is taxing domestic born companies (MS, Dell, etc) that outsource to other countries to save money and deny jobs to Americans. To them, I say "Keep them here or pay the price"
