Image backup better than Ghost these days

For image backups, I have used Acronis True Image Home 2010 for Windows XP Pro and Vista. It won't backup a Linux partition, yet I would install a new Linux after major releases. Acronis has compression and archive splitting. It'll make a backup partition to put your image on or some other media such as DVD, USB HDDs, and another SATA hard drive. The Arconis 2010 is good for Vista. It works with Windows 7, but the taskbar seems to crash.

I have my music on DVD, and external hard drive. That's the only thing valuable on PC.

Laser to get Sun's energy for heavy duty electricity?,2933,522857,00.html

Japan's doing it too! All this time, I thought the Gov was against nuclear energy like they are with nuclear power plants. I always thought we needed more nuclear power plants before today.

We should stick with building nuclear power plants or ITER power plants or HiPER power plants.

I know a energy source called Hydrosonic pump that outputs more energy than it takes to make it, and it is a lot less expensive to make!

Top Hong Kong Crime Dramas

1. The Killer (1989)
2. Hard Boiled (1992)
3. Internal Affairs (2002)
4. A Better Tomorrow (1986)
5. A Better Tomorrow II (1987)
6. Internal Affairs II (2003)
7. Running Out of Time (1999)
8. Police Story (1985)
9. The Longest Nite (1988)
10. Full Contact

Most of these films were when Hong Kong was a commonwealth of UK and were decent. Since 1997, they when from 8s to 6s! That should change if HK cinema makes a high budget movie.

Only XFX I guess..RIP BFG Tech

BFG Technologies, my favorite Geforce vendor, has defunct. My last GPU from then was two GTX 280. It was my favorite for the lifetime guarantee.

BFG Technologies, Inc. is winding down and liquidating its business. Unfortunately our
major supplier would not support our business. As a result we are cancelling your RMA
without being able to repair your product. We apologize for the inconvenience.

If you have already sent your product it, it will be returned to you.

After the Chapter 7 bankruptcy, I suggest everyone go with XFX.

Those Gears lock

Department for Innovation

Dells adventure...

I drove all the way to WI Dells to play Laser Runner My score was 6080. I've been in one of these in 2001. Then I ate pizza. After that, I went on the Opa, Dive to Atlantis, and Hades at least twice each. Felt great. Then I went back to Hudson. I haven't been to Valley Fair since 2000. I brought a 18 yr old cousin, Uli with me. Must've spent $180

Met some millionaires, asked for best paying entry job around...asked about obama
