Jeff i honestly cant believe some one actually buys an operating system. Ive got mine 7 for free from my college, windows 7 professional. Before installing it i was using Windows 7 Ultimate. Not much difference, but against XP windows 7 is a great improvement.

You can easily improve loading time of windows 7 by disabling the crap you don't need. Win 8 isn't more optimized at all, the only new thing in win 8 is DX 11.1 , which is bullshit to make you buy a new system because of that. Thats why Micro$oft deserves to get its ass wopped by linux.

My windows 7, with out SSD loads in 20 seconds from end of POST screen to login screen, than 10 more for everything else. Total of 30 seconds. If thats too long for you than i dont know. Even if it were loading for 5 minutes, putting your PC to sleep makes it load instantly.

Its common logic that women will do this. If you like the girl, than don't give up as if she means nothing to you.

First try, because you indeed can keep her if you understand her and her feelings. You need to show that you can love her and give her all your best. Listen to your inner feeling.

And do keep in mind that some girls are "corrupted" by the fake morals of todays society, and that many are confused a lot about how things should work. As I said, show that you can give her your best and understand her.

The map is pretty OK. I like the scenery, i always loved quiet themed snow maps. Plus there are some interesting effects like slightly opened windows.

What I absolutely hated are the lamps. Not only did i get stuck in one, but they are very ugly to use in this theme. An lantern would be much more suitable.

The map has some nice details, and its pretty good looking.

The idea is pretty cool. The graphics aren't too saturated with effects and i like that. As for the gameplay, this will probably be some really interesting stuff. Players would probably build not only towers or houses, but probably cities as well.

I really like the idea behind it. It isn't all blocky and running on a horrible unoptimized (Java) engine.

I might sound jumpy, but trust me, I never mean it as an insult. That simply how i express my self.

I am well aware that people get various things with more or less ease than others. But from personal experience i am most certain that the key to master mathematical lessons is to practice them until solving problems starts being automated. As i said its pure logic its all in noticing the, lets call it a, pattern in the equation/task, the way the task has been formed and what is it required to solve first to achieve the result. I mean, i had 1/5 (worst grade), 2/5 and some times 3/5 in math in grade school, wasn't much better in middle school, and thats all because i didn't practice nor study it. In college i already started to study and practice it more often resulting in a final grade of 95/100. I might get natural science and technologies faster, but shit, when it comes to sociology, languages and lectures, thats just plain boring and i cant be bothered to study it. So i can understand when others have a hard time with something.

And one more thing, of course its hard, everything in life will challenge you whether you like it or not, but you can conquer it if you set your self to doing so. This isn't said ten thousand times everywhere just because it sounds nice, it is true. And as many people suggested here, do try to get some extra lessons and always start from the most simplest task of the current lecture. You need to understand the basics in order to build a complex task and realize it. No one can lift 100kg in series with out first starting with smaller weights and building muscle.

Sorry if i sounded too ugh, i was quite busy, got a bitching hot retro case i was removing surface rust and filth from 100% steel, makes me hot.

Im currently busy with some retro computers so you only get the first one:

We can write it as f''(x) - f'(x) - 2f(x) = e^x+12 First we calculate the general form f''(x) - f'(x) - 2f(x) = 0. Assume f to be a sum of exponential functoins. The ODE gives us the characteristic polynomial x^2 - x - 2 = 0

(x-2)(x+1), which yields x=2 or x = -1.

Thus the solution to f''(x) - f'(x) - 2f(x) is of the form f(x) = e^(2x) + e^(-x)

For f''(x) - f'(x) - 2f(x) = e^x + 12 (the particular solution) we must consider f a sum of exponentials and a polynomial function. However, any polynomial in f must be of degree 0 (otherwise a power x^n will be on the right hand side of the equation), thus, exponentials and a constant factor: f(x) = a*e^x + b. Now, f'(x) = a*e^x = f''(x). insert into the equation f''(x)-f'(x)-2f(x) gives -2*(a*e^x + b) = e^x + 12, and thus a = -6 and b = -1/2

This gives f(x) = -6e^x - 1/2.

Now, the general solution is the sum of the particular solution and the complementary, and thus the final result is f(x) = -6e^x - 1/2 + a*e^(2x) + a*e^(-x) (For any a)

Madcow I am an Information Technology student. Yes I had advanced math and integrals/matrtixes. And i still say if its had for you, you didn't practice shit.

Try to get a PCI graphics, and an replacement CPU. If none work the board is dead. Could be RAM as well. What POST beeps does it emit? And are you sure that the PSU is all right as well?

Watch out for that 478 Dell, those motherboards are know for dieing a lot.

As for 604, awesome buy! I bought my self an Dell Precision 470 with 2x Intel Xeon 3.2GHz HT. Will upgrade it soon to 3.8GHz. Tell me the problem the MoBo has, maybe we can solve it.

journal: #8188 Comment #66597Thanks Captain' T! Yeah, my Retro project is cool, wait till you see the motherboard (he he he), and yeah, Nina is kawai

I really wonder what kind of components do you have, so mysterious

Thanks, and hopefully i will do something in my free time
