I tried to Reply but instead got message: Invalid formatting in the comment. There's nothing wrong with formatting.

There are no other details. My Reply appears in the box, will not spellcheck ("undefined" appears in the Preview box) where the spaces remain blank, the whole thing is wasting far too much of my time trying and retrying. I will check back sometime soon when I have loads of time to waste with junk blog programs that don't work properly.

Windows 7 truely sucks

I put Windows 7 pro on my gaming PC, oh my god, it sucks so damn bad! Good thing I dual booted with Vista, I have no clue what everybody was thinking when they said it was good! Every 10 minutes, blue screen on death. Tried everything, removing ram, taking out the video card, changing the power supply, plugging it straight into the wall with out the battery back up, nothing worked, so I booted Vista and it worked great, had it on for 2 days so far. And yes, my computer is very compatible with 64-bit. Windows 7 had a 10 minute maximum. Windows Vista just works, I just wish it had XP mode.

Condemned to the Marxist Hell of Sweden!

You know how something just occurs to you?In various places around the internet, I find people who choose to have a "difference in opinion" with me.I like to think I am quite well-educated, and with a decent vocabulary, so it is usually the other party that descends to out-right name-calling first.That doesn't bother me. In fact, sometimes it entertains me, as some of the insults can be quite surreal.My current favourite is from a poster on the BBC. He turned out to be, er, rather right wing, and eventually ended up declaring that I probably want to go and live in the Marxist Hell that is Sweden.I had to check - Sweden is actually a slightly right-of-centre, healthy, wealthy monarchy, with no particularly horrific crime rate.It turned out that the poster had found out that Sweden is about 85% non-religious or atheist (and climbing), and also has a fairly healthy immigrant population.The poster put this together with the ranting of a Norwegian blogger based in Belgium (?), and decided that Sweden is doomed until it rids itself of all the Muslim immigrant criminals. The poster was a complete loon, but I loved the insult.Anyhoo, to the rambling point; what insults have you been on the receiving end of that have been unintentionally entertaining?

What to do with a box of motherboards?

I just went to a garage sale that I saw on craigslist. The guy advertised a good amount of computer stuff. Upon getting there I found a treasure trove of 3-8 year old computer parts. Long story short i bought a box of 20 motherboards for five bucks. Sadly only six of them have processors though. Now comes the problem, what the hell should i do with 20 motherboards? I'm actually gonna go back there too because he's got empty towers at $5 a piece, as well as NICs, video cards, power supplies, and the like. So again, any ideas on what I should do?

why the hell isn't my instructable publishing?

I have been trying to have an instructable published for 2 days now. Here's a screenshot of the hidden comments that an admin (noahw) is sending me. First he agrees that my instructable does not violate any of the 'criteria' that are so thoroughly bulleted in the first post, then goes on to say that he just is a little uncomfortable because he doesn't quite understand a simple point in the instructable. I guess noahw's full and total comprehension of each and every step of an instructable is what decides if it's publishable or not. To make the instructable understandable by noahw I added a thorough diagram. I then attempted to republish the instructable last night and it still has not appeared on the instructables page,...... it did not used to be this difficult to share knowledge on instructables with people other than the admins.. Sorry if this post sounds a little annoyed, but I am.

All right, let's clear this up: What the hell is inside of a battery?

Really frustrating: I accidentally closed the tab I had been working on for about 15 minutes, so I'll probably be missing a couple of questions I had been meaning to ask.So anyway: When I peel off the outermost metal covering of a zinc-carbon battery, I'm just taking away a protective steel covering, right? When I get rid of that, am I looking at the actual zinc "case?"What is the sticky, black material that surrounds the graphite rod? Is that manganese dioxide? Is manganese dioxide the same thing manganese oxide?Further outwards from the center of the battery, there is another black substance. Is this ammonium chloride?I haven't actually chopped open a carbon-zinc battery all the way yet. Is there a good technique for removing all of the contents?How can I tell the difference between the two black substances? Is the moist, black paste ammonium chloride? If this is so, then why, when I pull the graphite rod out of the battery, is it sometimes coated with a sticky, black substance? Do the substances mix with each other or are both substances sticky and black? Is one a powder?Is it okay to drill through one end of the battery? If I drill into the negative terminal of the battery, what will fall out?Basically, what are the physical properties of all the materials? How can I tell the difference between them?Now: On to alkaline batteries...Both types (carbon-zinc and alkaline) appear to use manganese dioxide. Is this so? On Wikipedia's article on alkaline batteries, manganese dioxide is described as Zn/MnO2, with the two as a sub-script. Does the slash mark mean that zinc and manganese dioxide are interchangeable?What will I find if I open up an alkaline battery? Is it safe to do so? What is a good, safe way to open one up?Are there any particular "fun" applications for these chemicals? Think explodiness ; )I've heard that manganese dioxide can be used to produce oxygen. How do I do this?There might be some yellow tag-box notes on these, pictures. For the context, visit my Instructable on how to make your own carbon arc light. I'm not trying to advertise, I'm just anticipating someone asking about them.

What is a racist these days?

Lately I have a problem accepting certain things when it comes to the label "racist". As some might know I decided to live in Australia and here we have what you might call a "multicultural population". Laws and tolerances have changed and these days swearing in public, using abusive language or say anthing that can be seen as racism brings you in big trouble. I never had any problems making friends with people from all over the globe, no matter what ethnic or religous background they have, but lately I get the feeling that this is not true for everyone. With everyone I don't mean the big bad racist living down the street or the gang of thugs that only attacks certain people - by everyone I mean those migrating to start a new life in a different country. If I walk into a shop has no pricing or product labels in english and I notice the shop keeper is unable to use english as well, would it be wrong to call this racist? If I can't use the local swimming pool at certain times as it closed to the general public so only one ethnic group can use it - isn't that racial discrimination too? Ignoring simple things like the dress code for women can get you into big trouble in many countries and if you insist on you individual rights and call those ranting against your violation being racist, well chances are you won't make it through the day. The other day I was called a racist and "complimented" out of a shop after I complained noone in there is able to speak english and that I am unable to read simple things like the price of an item. All I said to a shopkeeper (that until then pretended he did not understand anything I say): "Why the hell do I have to learn chinese in an english speaking country just to go shopping? We all speak english in this country, accept it or if you don't like it leave." I think I have enough friends from different cultural backgrounds that would happily confirm that I am not racist in any way. But I do think the term is abused and misused in recent years as we are expected to cater for all the needs anyone might have - regardless if we would see the same as guests in their home country. Racism often comes from cultural differences and misguided views on certain things as simple as what type of food you can or can't eat. So my questions up for debate : Do you think failing to integrate yourself into the customs of a country like learning and using it's official language could cause problems? Do you think the support for people migrating from other countries is driven too far in certain areas, like providing citizenchip tests in foreign languages or with an interpreter instead of insisting on learning the official language before applying? Do you feel left out if your work mates use a differnt language while you are around? Is it correct to call someone a racist if he refuses to employ people that are not from his country of birth? Are you a racist if you think people with your citizenship should respect your country and be able to speak and understand your language? Do you think the support for foreign cultures in your home land has gone too far or would more support be better? (like allowing schools for selected language backgrounds without the requirement to use or teach the official language and school topics) I know this topic might be a bit of puch for some but my intention is to find a better understanding on why cultural integration and related racism has come the extreme state we currently see in many "modern" countries that offer good social security. After all we all have to live together somehow, increasing tensions is never a good thing and I think if everyone would have a better understanding better acceptance of local customs all could be easier. I hope it is ok to start a topic like this for discussion, if you feel it is not right please use the flag function and report it.

What I truly hate about the holiday season.

It's when the new shows start telling me how much to tip everyone. The serious "advice" from these people ranges anywhere for a day's pay to a month's salary for everyone from the garbage man (there are four on the trucks in my neighborhood, does each receive $100?) to each person where I get my haircut, not just the barber, EVERYONE. The suggested tips run up into the thousands of dollars. Hey Christmas, go to hell! And let's not forget the office gift exchange, we are strongly encouraged to participate, since they can't make it mandatory, to bring a new $10 gift. Last year I hand made something and caught a firestorm of crap for it. This year, being my last, I bought a $10 gift and gave it to Toys for Tots. Materialistic, self centered BS that's the holiday spirit.

Ink pen refill...what type of ink to use?

Alright, alright, so I did read some older forums regarding a similar issue, however after attempting some of the suggestions noted on there, I encountered some problems... I am addicted to my Uni-Ball Signo Rt Gel pens (.38) - yeah, that's right - they are freakin' awesome! The problem is that I write the hell out of them, and the refills cost 6 cents cheaper than the pens (which aren't cheap either). So, yeah, I did hunt down my dusty inkjet refill kit, and slip that tiny syringe into my empty cartridge, and successfully loaded it with some ink. My excitement soon dissipated as I began writing... the old .38 writing that it used to have turned into a fatty rolling ball writing the bleed through all of my class notes (just putting out too much). It's obvious that I am simply not using the right type of ink. It seems like it might not be viscous enough? I knew it probably wouldn't work the first time, but seeing how I was able to actually 'refill' the pen myself, there MUST be some ink out there that will bring my pen back to life! Any info on the right type of ink would be great! Thanks ~ pete
