    Networking Problems? LLDP Didn't work

    Sorry, don't like using you guys as tech support, but I didn't know where else to go. I can't seem to get printing between my vista machines (4 of them) and my XP desktop, which most of my printers are connected to. I tried finding a network printer - it'll see the name of the desktop, but...

    Solar Paneling is Reflective?

    I was just wondering why solar paneling is shiny. Doesn't that mean light is reflected and wasted?

    Medical Well-researched nutrition information

    The "crud" comment makes me think maybe I should drink more water and just keep it up. Thanks for all the help, Mike!

    Medical Well-researched nutrition information

    I'm starting up slowly, so slowly that I'd rather not say what my exercise regimen is. Honestly, my diet has always been the most neglected aspect of my fitness, but I abhor junk food and I drink soda maybe once in a blue moon. I eat a lot of rice (I'm Chinese, go figure) with veggies and...

    Medical Well-researched nutrition information

    I started working out again after a long break, and my muscle fatigue is lasting for days, really destroying my motivation to stick to my schedule. I was just wondering if anyone knew of any legitimate, well-researched nutrition information, supplements, or techniques that I should know of to...

    Homosexuality is not a genetic issue

    Don't forget about kin selection. *EDIT* that was vague, let me clarify - my reasoning is that since siblings share genes, a homosexual, non-reproductive sibling might contribute to the spread of shared genes by kin-selection - that is, by focusing more energy on the survival of his/her...

    Just a cool thing to do

    K'nex are like Legos, but they're based around sticks and...connections (k'nex) instead of matching pieces. They're pretty cool! OH MAN! I haven't played Roller Coaster Tycoon in so long! That was an amazing game.

    Tired of school: Any sense in continuing?

    Haha, Vid, yes, I thought it was fairly amusing - actually, if this whole thread is an elaborate hoax by a classical scholar, it will be that much funnier. Sorry for the off-topic, had to note it

    Mathematica Mathematica & the GPU

    Crosson, how do I do that? Or where could I go to find out how to? Can Mathematica do it for me? Mr. Healey, I believe this is the case as well. However, I think I would probably need something like nVidia's CUDA in order to get it to work, like Elliot said. I don't think Mathematica...

    Physiological Limits in Physics

    On a semi-related note, I was just at 6 Flags Great America pondering similar questions. Anyone here design rollercoasters or know anyone who does? I don't pretend to have any great understandings of physics, but I was thinking that if you found an equation for acceleration between your chosen...

    Mathematica Mathematica & the GPU

    Thanks for the tip! Unfortunately it didn't make it any faster, although "software" makes it extremely slow. Maybe I'm making a few vital assumptions about either my machine or how Mathematica renders that are wrong.

    Mathematica Mathematica & the GPU

    I was playing around with Mathematica and I discovered this via the help: [Broken] ...which is basically the most bad-ass 3D graph I've ever seen, much less had generated on my computer! Yes, I'm only in Calc II for now...
