I find this interesting, I live near Chicago, 123 people were killed on the streets of Chicago between the start of Memorial Day weekend on May 26, and the end of Labor Day on Sept. 1

Cite? What were cause of deaths? Heart attack? Traffic accidents? Shootings?

Population of Chicago, IL: 2.89 million

Population of Iraq: 28.2 Million

Death rate: 5.14 deaths/1,000 population

From Memorial Day weekend on May 26, and the end of Labor Day on Sept. 1, 65 soldiers were killed in combat in Iraq.

Cite?

Is living in Chicago more dangerous than being a soldier in Iraq?

Definitely.

Of course, you have to drive in amored convoys and wear kevlar flak jackets and full field gear in Iraq and keep your M16 locked and loaded but you will be safer as a result. :)

Sounds like he was northbound and the truck turned from westbound to northbound in front of him. No brain bucket on head if the description of the injuries is accurate. Severe trauma to the face or skull ensues. It would appear he hit an edge or a fender at eyebrow level from the witness accounts. No fun, I am sure. Not sure a cyclist or blader helmet would have helped much.

I couldn't agree more. I find myself faced with Hobson's choice:

A young man who has no experience and thinks the word "change" is a national policy.
An old man who has experience but no drive and thinks the word "drill" is an economic policy.

An old man who thinks giving up obstructionism in the Senate to become an invisible Vice President is a good idea.
A young woman who thinks mythology is science.

If either president were to die in office the successor is a potential disaster for America.

The only consolation is that given the gridlock potentials it really won't matter who is president unless he/she is of the same party as the Congress.

The data sets are called Keplerian element sets and they define the orbital parameters at some instant in time upon which the future orbit can be calculated. NORAD uses two-line element sets (TLE) for inputting them into the tracking programs, it's probably the most common medium.

T.S. Kelso's site is probably the most complete collection of information on this kind of topic. It's an excellent source for current TLEs on all classes of satellites and has references to many tracking programs.

Trouble Shooting / Re: Attention required: signal timing is out of range
« on: September 01, 2008, 05:50:21 AM »
Sounds to me like the monitor is not changing up to the scan rate of the video card if you turn on the monitor after the computer is up. This monitor is a typical low-end specification unit. You have either tuned your driver scan rates outside the range acceptable to the monitor or it is having trouble detecting the scan rates at initialization.

From the user guide:
Horizontal scanning frequency 30-86kHz
Vertical scanning frequency 50-130Hz
Resolution (H x V) 1600 dots x 1200 lines non-interlaced maximum addressable resolution format at 65Hz

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/monitors/7901p/spec.htm

Turn on the monitor before starting the computer.
Make sure the monitor is correctly identified in Windows by brand and type. (Desktop properties, Settings)
Set Windows screen saver to blank screen and stop scan to initiate power save mode if power consumption is a concern.

While the system is up and active and after at least 30 minutes of operation, store the current frequencies in the monitor since you are probably using custom frequencies that the monitor needs to know about.

Who's maintaining the mod? Is it a dead mod or is source available? If we could get eyes on source maybe we can fix it.

console, #tastyspleen-live is pretty fuckin' cool. How did you manage to stream live in-game chat? are you just parsing the logs?

I would imagine the WallFly entity has a lot to do with that. If you have a client in game, anything chatted would be transmitted to it and the process could pass it to the live stream.

"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state,
the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution


Illinois Constitution Article I, Section 22

Subject only to the police power, the right of the individual citizen to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.


 WOW ColdFlo how could you come to that conclusion, just more of your

Blah, blah, blah, blah, um, and more blah, blah, blah, blah, er, and more blah, blah, blah

:sorry:

The fact is, the 2nd Amendment WAS intended to protect the individual from oppressive government. It was intended to preserve the right of the people to overthrow tyrannical government as they had overthrown British rule. Before the revolution, the British army was quartering troops in private homes without compensation to the owners, confiscating weapons and property, all enumerated in the grievances in the Declaration. The British army, was in fact, practicing gun control when they found colonists (citizens) with guns. This is what the 2nd Amendment is intended to prevent.

The latest interpretation by the U.S. Supreme Court supports this view. The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. It stands at face value and doesn't depend on the preceeding clause, and may in fact have more to do with "regulating the militia" to prevent the militia (military under direction of the government) from repressing the people.

It was the founders' view that strong government was bad and tended toward repression if left unchecked. The right of the people to keep their government obedient shall not be infringed.

Of course, one of the first things a repressive government will do will be to register ownership and eventually confiscated significant weapons in the hands of the citizens. After all, the government is there to protect them and citizens have no need to arm themselves.

Does your brain run as fast and furious as your mindless, disorganized typing? It's no surprise that you disregard "rules" as you cannot think clearly and your typing demonstrates it. You look foolish and you cannot persuade people to accept your points if you cannot communicate them clearly. Ignore rules of communication and you fail to communicate.

I skimmed past your mindless gibberish and spent more time on the replies than your posts. I can't believe you actually went back and edited your posts... what could you have possibly found wrong in that endless dribble?

Spelling, grammar, punctuation: Get some.

Else, STFU.

Trouble Shooting / Re: map differs from server
« on: August 27, 2008, 02:36:34 PM »
The single player maps should never be distributed by download from servers

If for some reason I can't play certain stock maps on this particular server and downloading them (from the server) fixes the problem then I don't have a problem with it. I know what you mean but this is the only server that I know of that actually runs singleplayer maps so I'm not too worried about getting conflicting map versions on other servers.

I don't understand why SP maps here would be any different from SP maps elsewhere but I suppose it's possible if someone renamed a custom or modified the originals somehow. I know we like to keep several of the stock maps in the rotation lists on our servers just so people aren't locked into download mode on every map in the rotations.

I download pak0 from my q2 cd and it still does the same thing local map differs from server .Next time i go in it fine i don't get it. Never had this problem before. Weird. :ubershock:

Strange. I'd do a reconnect from the console when the client disconnects and see if that gets you in. Are you on a wireless LAN connection by any chance?

Yes, but will the cold war keep Muslim cucumbers cold? What are the hazards of inappropriate use of cold war cucumbers by Muslim males? Do the Muslim males buy cold war cucumbers for their own personal use or for their wives, sisters or daughters? If the cucumbers are too cold do the Muslim males preheat them before passing them to the females? Are the cold war cucumbers grown in Russia or are they only supplied via the Russian cold war cucumber consortium?
