AMD let people have a peak at the all-new R9-290X twin-GPU card at Montreal. The link only goes to a "its here folks" article, but its on the near term Guru3d list for full review.

"A slender acquaintance with the world must convince every man that actions, not words, are the true criterion of the attachment of friends"
George Washington

I hope the future will still allow the words of George Washington to remain a voice of common sense, and we remain able to assist one another where humanly possible, despite the antics of an idiotic minority who just like the sound of their own voices ......

Have a Great Fourth

If there are any Chinese speaking forum members on tonight, would be most grateful for an assist on another forum. An individual has a problem getting going on his PC, we know whats wrong, but he doesnt speak English.  If would be great if someone could help us get across to ths guy what he needs to do.  Its the SETI Project.  If there is anyone who could post a suitable reply translating from the english written solution grateful you have a look here:

These photos really got to me, they are a perfect series of spontaineous shots taken on Election Night at the Park. They show in an incredibly powerful way what has been achieved.  They are starting to go viral on the Web.  Phenominal photos.

New install of WB yesterday (Zubaz led me down the path of true enlightenment on the GC2 Forum after blinding people with a "neked" Windows screenshot   ).

Going fine, with one minor issue.  Copernic Agent Pro backgrounds show up as Black inside one of the Frames, including the Link text.

Screen shots in the Link show on the left the effect on a XP Pro SP3  FX60 2Gb RAM.  The one on the right is from a Vista SP1 laptop Intel Core2Duo 2Ghz T7250 2Gb RAM)...

Came across a strange thing I had not really noticed before ....  accessing MSNBC via IE gets different news compared to accessing via Mozilla(V3).  Anyone else come across this, or know why?  To test this I cleared all cache, zapped all temp files, got it as clean as I could, then let them both loose at the same time, both accessed at 9.31am MSNBC time.

The trend towards Health & Safety is overall a good thing.  As always with good things, they can go off the rails at times. In UK its getting to the stage where you have to wonder about individual sanity, or if they are just having a laugh.  I'm curious to see if this trend has gone overboard in other Countries  by way of posting the gaffs you have come across.  A few to kick off the principle,

I am a Leona Lewis fan, an incredible singer of stunning quality.

Tonight I had a look at one of her fan sites, there was a post there about a relatively new music download  Site (all genres) http://www.we7.com, there was lots of attention from the fanbase as she got paid for each download or streaming.  The Site initially was downloading to UK addys only, however Global addys were being worked on, dont know the latest, worth checking that out if you are non-UK.

Its concept is to...

Way Off-Topic for sure this one ....  however the subject is a most amazing 12 yr old girl by the name of Faryl Smith, with a singing voice that is pure gold, utterly incredible.  She didnt win the Final of the Talent Show (the vagaries of popularist voting never cease to amaze me), however she has made her name without a doubt, and she will be an International Star very quickly. 

Most in UK will have heard of her, however many of those those outside UK probably havent.  ...

I dont usually get involved in "email blasts", they can get very annoying.  I am however outraged by this one, its the usual insane interference by petty politically correct Bureaucrats.  It beggars belief.  If you live in UK, and you feel able to support it, please click the link to the PM Petition website below to register your opinion - a safe link I promise!  Only UK based votes will count.
 The petition has rocketed since it started, and is fast becoming the larges...

Newsweek is carrying a story on a Female Priest, "ordained" at Eden Theological Seminary - probably should be named Eden Theatrical Seminary. Apparently these people are approved by the Ecumenical Catholic Communion who decline the authority of the Pope, but still see themselves as Roman Catholic. This paragon of virtue - who is also married by the way - starts this week at Saints Clare & Francis, a breakaway parish in Webster Groves, as an "associate pastor". (associate pastor? Whats that? ...
