Re: I'm bad at maths. Any ideas why?

I would suggest to solid up your foundations, books, online tutorials, or even getting tutor just to do that. It needs to be fixed if you want to go on further in mathematics, since everything is built on the pieces below it. Very good advice - advice I hope to follow...sooner rather than later if ...

Re: I'm bad at maths. Any ideas why?

I'm sympathetic to the OP, unfortunately. I hate when I'm struggling to get something and the tutor asks "Did you even take hs freshman algebra?" :oops: It's humiliating. It's not that I'm not interested, I just have a poor foundation on basic things and thus have embarrassing incompetence...

Re: ubuntu won't find any wireless networks!?

The way I got this to work is to first download the appropriate Broadcom drivers to a usb stick, install them in ubuntu, (found the same forum topic Unparallelogram did - the first one), *then* look for restricted drivers and install them. Or you could just remake wl.ko every.single.time. you reboot...

Indeed. I initially had something *far* less polite written, but thought I'd at least see if it was some kind of stupid "but she was in a 5 point harness!" type thing. :S

Re: What sucks about being so smart?

I watched my own daughter fall off of a 327 meter high overhang due to an incorrect toe placement, which I did not warn her against because I wanted her to figure it out for herself. It paid off - she's never made that mistake since. Was that 327 meters over something soft, or was she secured in so...

Very nicely done!

...and yet, so disturbing for a reason I can't quite put my finger on...the frenzied repetitive behavior and those beady eyes = AUGH!!!

Re: Conspiracy Theories

I don't really believe in any conspiracy theories. 9/11 conspiracy theories and of course moon landing conspiracies theories drive me bonkers. But when people tell me their theories I just nod and smile...I figure they'll believe whatever they want to believe, that furthermore it's their right to be...

Re: 16 bit MS-DOS subsystem error

Apparently it's caused by the trojans

TROJ_VUNDO.ATK
TROJ_AGENT.TPM

I've heard spyware doctor removes it. So you might try that. (I'd link to my sources but I've 4 posts left to go :) )
