If the next handheld isn't backwards compatible, I'll eat both my shoes. BC means it'll have at least a DS cart slot, two screens arranged one atop the other, and at least the bottom screen will be a touch screen. So, basically, it'll look a heck of a lot like the DS Lite. Of course, the DS Lite loo...

I'm no expert, but when a multimeter reads 40 with 100 ohm scale but 1 at 1000 ohm scale I tend to think something's wrong.

I'm not too worried about reading the resistance of clearly marked resistors. I was, however, using a clearly marked resistor in order to test the accuracy of the multimeter.

Best Multimeters

I'd bought a nice(looking) Radio Shack 17 function multimeter for use with my electronics projects. The thing is horrendously inaccurate. If you adjust the dial to read the proper resistance of a known resistor at one scale, the number comes up completely different at a higher and lower scale. I do ...

she says no one knows what to get me.
...But, you do know what you want, right? Why do you need complete strangers to suggest presents for your birthday? We can make very basic suggestions, but only you know what you want and need.

I agree, the PS3 story is the most pathetic. If a man's too much of a coward to go on living, oh well. I'll just leave him to his business. But the PS3 guy ended another man's life...

I have had many pets, over the years. I have had pets grow old and die. I have had pets produce offspring, including runts, most of which unfortunately didn't survive. You're entire post was rather pathetic, as is your shortsighted fixation on a single misinterpretation of the points I have been mak...

So you would rather go on living with seizures every day of your life?
A living thing suffering from seizures has more potential than a dead thing. For example, the living thing can hunt and produce offspring, albiet with reduced efficiency. The dead thing can't.

Sounds like he may be better off this way though.
It's dead. You can't get much worse off than that.

It's more the lesson you learn from the words then the words themselves. Really? I mean, it's a random quote from a sci-fi series, thrown in to make the show seem smarter than it really is. I've done philosophy for 2 years in college and to me, that's just jibberish I've also taken philosophy cours...
