OK this is post number what? (edit-#15) and I'm still not sure what this thread is about! I'm guessing we are not talking about some G4-related China-syndrome that is turning your powerbook into the metalic equivalent of play-dough. Rather, I guess you are complaining about some slight difference in how the powerbook lid closes on one side versus the other. If so, I suggest you open the lid and use the powerbook to do something useful rather than stare at its...
I always thought Edwards was the perfect VP material since most of the other candidates were from the north. However, some people are saying that they may just give up on the south and focus on the midwest. Gephart is a good man, but I'm uninspired by him. He is part of the Demos-in-power that completely blew the midterm elections. Graham-did so poorly in the primaries that he has looser written all over him. I think Richardson is a likely candidate. No way...
You are very correct in stating that our description of evolution and the mechansims of evoultions are a work in progress. However, the evidence is not sketchy. It's called the theory of evolution because there is so very much evidence that it is way beyond hypothesis. That doesn't mean the whole thing has been explained in every detail-nor will it likely ever be. The origins of life are a particular tough nut to crack since it all happened at least several billions of...
I think that even if those people that don't believe in evolution in the fullest (life from no life, major speciation events etc) probably still except the existence of DNA, genes and at least some basic aspects of genetics. (Those that don't are so lost it's not even worth discussing.) My point is that if you study the DNA then you can see that there are differences within species and that these differences are due to minor changes in the DNA. We can also measure the...
Scientific creationism (an oxymoron for sure) is just an attempt by Christian fundamentalists to get their ideas into schools by disguising their preconcieved notions as science. Hence, their version of the truth deserves equal time in science class. No way, but unfortuneatly their efforts pay off from time to time. If your math teacher wants to spew this crap in a religious studies class I could accept that, but its good he doesn't teach science and I hope he keeps his...
quagmire (an appropriate screen name), I've looked at some of your posts around here and can't tell if your a purposeful troll or a somewhat clueless 14-year old. If your not a troll, it would help your case if you could explain your problems with a little more detail-pictures would help. The people here at AI can be very helpful but the tone and, frankly the topics of your posts, seem less above the board than from below the bridge.
My 15" alu also has the creak. It developed over time and it pretty much makes one big crack sound every time I open it up. I don't like it but it doesn't keep the powerbook from performing its functions. The thing needs to go back to have the white spot problem dealt with and I hope it gets solved in the process. I never had the feeling that the screen was going to burst, but its a pretty good crack and I see no sign that it will solve itself.
I've had my mouse since around October and use it on most week days. I've had to replace the batteries only once. Funny note: If you replace the batteries incorrectly you may find that the mouse looses only half it's functions, i.e. it will clikc but not drag. I'm embarassed to say how long it took me to figure that problem out. I figured that if the batteries are in correctly that it works and visa versa. I didn't think there would be an in-between.
Sorry, i don't know the answer to your question. However, in case you haven't noticed GB has been starting a small industry in loops. I think new material will be coming from many sources. For some links you can start at: http://www.icompositions.com/downloads/
Here's my expeirience: I tried to plug my Shure SM57 mic into my monster cable 0.25 to miniplug adapter straight into my Alu and Dual G5 computers. The results was a very low level signal. Yes, I had the input level pegged to 11 in system prefs and I had to up the level in GB to max to hear much at all. What I heard sounded good and clean but very quite. You could hardley mix it with any of the loops because their signals were so much stronger. So my conclusion is...
