    What's the polite response...?

    That's funny. I did the same for the school district and they bought everything I recommended. Later, I even ran the business departments windows server from a Mac laptop, drove the Dell reps crazy. They sent me to school for more training. I stayed there till retirement.

    What's the polite response...?

    Guy, I have this same problem with people and computers. I used to network and run a school districts computers (now retired). I always get, what should I buy? I respond with what do you want to do with it. They don't know, but they NEED a computer. Well, most buy whatever is on sale. "I got...

    laser vision correction--any thoughts?

    OK, everyone has an opinion. I will chime in with real world experiences. 13 years ago, yeah you read right, I was told I needed bifocals over my contacts. Not going to happen. I was going to get surgery. Lasiks not available at the time. I found out later that I would never have been a...

    Apple seems to have the same PDO department

    Don, I waited until the new IntelMacs came out over a year ago and bought the latest G5 PM at Costco with Applecare, cheaper than I could get it at my school with an educ buy and no tax. Like a few others said, if you can wait a few months....., but remember, a new one is just down the road.

    Apple seems to have the same PDO department

    Come on guys, technology changes daily. If you wait, you will never buy. Apple will sell a boat load of machines after Leopards release next week. If you are in the market, go for it. If you do not need one right now, after February you can really upgrade? According to the rumors, Apple has...

    Hard drive not recognized

    The B-tree is basically the catalog or index of the volume. Larry was right, if you reformat it the drive might be alright. Can you hook it up to another computer? Can it be read from another computer besides the one you have? If so, off load your data and then reformat. I have a small...

    Politically Correct???

    Cliff, I take exception with this: What worries me, is that the people, who should be teaching my children how to think, are, instead, giving them a course in how to avoid having to think. These broad bannings, of items in or related to schools, is, at best, a dereliction of the teachers' and...

    I must be stupid

    I was following this auction: Nikon ML-3 remote It is missing the hand strap and is used. Now, what I do not understand is that the remote went for $152 + $6 S&H = $158 and change. Now a grey market remote from B&H is $154.95 + $7.95 S&H = $163 to my door with a 1 year warranty from B&H. Am I...

    How big is High School football in your area?

    Lets see. Here in Ohio, the local state HS Champs are 20 miles north of me. High School football is BIG. The local station carries some of the games live and some rebroadcast an hour after they end. The local paper has a 60 page insert every year covering the Ohio valley football teams. The...

    Leg wraps, column, retractable spike for GT-3530s?

    Thom Hogan's 17-55 review - what's that thing on his d70?

    I have to disagree. It is an L-bracket - RRS. It is not heavy at all. It only weighs 3 oz. I have one on my D200. Don't even know it is there, but when I need to mount it on the tripod, presto.
