nothing rusted at all, everything came out SUPER smooth. The under carraige of the car is immaculate and rust free.

It's just a pain in the ASS car to work on because everything is so fucking compact. very well thought out suspension design, but super gay to work on. Especially putting stock stuff back in! Nothing like a Honda at all.

Now the winters won't fit because the stock suspension is not in... So i think i am going to say fuck it and sell them and buy my summer tires now. For the odd days where it snows, i'll take the protege 5.

you probably have a built on network card on the motherboard as well as a second one in one of the slots... one of them is not connected

Thanks for the tip. I run dual network cards each off a seperate router which I "believe" helps with internet speed. Running over 100ft per/cable to this computer from where the network box is located (garage) Problem fixed

I really dont think that would help internet speeds at all seeing as your card will go as fast as 100mbps and your internet is prolly only about 2 or 3 mbps...so that's really just a waste of a card.

father watched his young daughter playing in the garden. He smiled as he reflected on how sweet and pure his little girl was. Tears formed in his eyes as he thought about her seeing the wonders of nature through such innocent eyes. Suddenly she just stopped and stared at the ground.

He went over to her to see what work of God had captured her attention. He noticed she was looking at two spiders mating.

"Daddy, what are those two spiders doing?" she asked.

"They're mating," her father replied.

"What do you call the spider on top?" she asked.

"That's a Daddy Longlegs," her father answered.

"So, the other one is a Mommy Longlegs?" the little girl asked.

As his heart soared with the joy of such a cute and innocent question he replied "No dear Both of them are Daddy Longlegs."

The little girl, looking a little puzzled, thought for a moment, then
took her foot and stomped them flat.

"Well, we're not having any of that gay shit in our garden." she said.

Yea sorry to say buddy but you're theory is incorrect as colin has stated if your network card is 100mbps and shaw is capping you that aint gonna do shiiiiat.

Just got back from a weekend in Van city... gas is only 82.4 in abbotsford right now.

I got owned by a rock chip on the way back though, the spidery looking crack is allready started thanks to some idiot "new canadians" who figured it would be fun to switch lanes right in front of me in the gravel.

I got them back though!

I just got back from a weekend in Van too. I flew though, and the flight was rather scary. I'm used to scary flights though, ever since my flight from Manchester to Edinbrough. The UK has some crazy weather.

They've had the technology to run Nitro for a while now since every single backbone to the distribution hub is a 1Gbps fibre connection. Nitro is quite amazing though, its pretty interesting when you have a provider that can give you faster Internet than a LAN 5 years ago in the 10Mbps days. It will be mighty fast, although this only proves true if a person hosting the site or the torrent gets an actual throughput of 100Mbps on the server side.. they might be capped on the other end and you wont so i dont know if it will be worth the $90 a month price tag.

i guess that is why telus is trying so hard to lock people into 3 year deals with their internet. they just spent a fortune upgrading their service only to be miles behind.

competition is very intense in the internet industry.

sasktel here in saskatchewan which is an equal to telus in bc/alberta is fighting tooth and nail to keep up with shaw. they're blowing 400 million in the next few years to launch vdsl technology which is capable of 45mbits per second within a i "think" a 1km range.. literally every foot you are away from the switch, the slower you get.

i know telus has just dumped alot of money into internet, but there is no point.

you cant compete with cable.

companies dump millions trying to get fibre optics closer to homes. only to than send the information down a bottle necked phone line.

while a cable company does the same thing with fibre and than from the switch run coax which has 4x or more than capacity of the phone line.
