A number game

I remember playing this game a couple years ago. I don't know if it has a name though. The rules are simple: there are N people playing. Everybody writes down a positive integer secretly. The person who wrote down the smallest number that no one else wrote down is the winner. I've been trying to fig...

Re: Trojan infection help

No. My laptop never came with a CD for reinstall. But if reinstalling Windows is the only option, I might be able to get it from someone else.

Re: Trojan infection help

It has a bunch of addresses ending in adobe.com linking to 127.0.0.1

Re: Trojan infection help

I did a scan in safe mode. It removed 7 infected files. The problem is, every time I click on a link in Google search, I still get redirected to an ad site. At least there's no more fake antiviruses.

And avast! antivirus is still detecting malware. (This could be bad...)

Trojan infection help

My computer got infected by a trojan (at least that's what I think it is). My OS is Windows Vista. This is what happened: avast! antivirus detected several instances of a virus/trojan within a few minutes. It asked me to restart and perform a boot time scan, which I did. The scan found nothing. When...

Can't log in on Firefox

I can't log in on Firefox 3.5. I tried clearing my cache and deleting board cookies, but it didn't work. I can log in just fine on IE8.

Re: Comical mistakes in your homework.

Not a homework mistake, but...

In a page of my physics textbook, the author put an image of a cell nucleus where there should have been an atomic nucleus. One of my classmates jokingly asked our GSI whether it's a widely accepted fact that atomic nuclei have chromosomes in them.

Balls and buckets problem

There are n buckets, each initially containing one ball. Balls are thrown, and must land in one of the buckets. The probability that a ball will land in a particular bucket is the ratio of the number of balls in that bucket to the total number of balls. How many balls must be thrown so that there is...

Re: Are you obsessed with talking with NPC's?

I'm the exact opposite. I don't talk to NPCs unless I have to to advance the story.

Re: Tower Defense games

I like Xeno Tactic. It's a game with simple mechanics and yet a complex strategy.
