  1. Wow, thanks for the all the replies. My prefers to go with the big companies (he has no faith in smaller companies).

    So far, I got quotes from progessive & state farm.

    We used to have state farm, and switched to allstate, and it looks like we will prolly switch back to state farm.

    I'm also going to get quotes from Geico & liberty...but oddly, both their sites are down for maintenance /=


  2. Hey guys, I have a simple question, and this is the only place I know, that I can get legit and truthful answers.

    My family have been using Allstate for our Auto/House Insurance for a while, and now we're thinking their just ripping us off (too lazy to post details :) )

    ...So my dad decided to it's time for a change and asked me to look around and find a good company with fair rates.

    So, I was wondering, whose your auto & home insurance?

    What do you guys suggest?

    So far, the only big players I know of are Progessive & State Farm.

    My dad and I will take a trip to the State Farm place Monday to get a quote.


  3. So..I'm making a Partition just for most of my data files.

    Like my music, and movies, and Programs, etc... NO OS will be installed on this partition.

    So...which file system should I choose when making this partition?

    NTFS?

    Fat32?

    ReiserFS? Don't know much about it...but heard the guy that found it is in jail. Ouch...

    Right now, I'm dual booting with vista 32bit & vista 64bit (don't ask....just blame it on drivers).

    I plan to use Linux in the future and I want too access my music and videos from the partition on the linux OS?

  5. Am I ever going to get back the constant, stable 99FPS I had with Counter Strike 1.6 When I was with Windows XP?

    Currently, I use Vista, and it's annoying to have basically 10 to 50 FPS (playing in Window mode), and overall shakey performance.

    And this is with nothing else running. Hell trying to play CS 1.6 with Winamp gives me around 15 fps.

    Serioulsy, what in the world is going?

    I expected a peroformance loss, but damn, this is too much of a loss.

    I been using Vista ever since it came out. I reformatted/reinstalled multiple times..but still, the same problem exists.

    So, I need to know, what is the advantages that I am getting by using Vista?

    Here's my system specs.

    AMD 3000+

    AsROck 939 Dual-Sata Motherboard

    nVidia GeForce 7600GT

    2GB PC3200 RAM

    2x 80GB IDE HD's

    Sound Blaster 24bit Sound Card.

    PS: Please do not be a troll, and just tell me that "Vista Sucks", "Get linux", etc...

    All I ask wehther if nVidia will release a driver that will be able to handle CS 1.6 on my GeForce 7600GT and if there is any real advantages in using Vista.


  6. So my sister is home for the thanksgiving holidays, and her computer....has junk installed (AOL for example).

    Anyways, I can take care of these things, but Just want to make sure there are no other bad things installed.

  7. So,I went to advanced auto parts today.

    And asked for a free fuse check.

    the lady told me, she don't even know what that is and they don't even offer the service.

    :blink:

    LOL!!! Hehe, oops.

    Oh well, start checking the fuses your self then. Its something you need to know how to do. It's not unheard of to b low a fuse while goin done the road. Blow a headlight fuse at midnight in the middle of no where... then what? :wacko:

    911? haha j/p.

    ya, time to read the manual!
