No new Nvidia drivers for laptop computers (until now hahaha)
Nividia does not support any of there laptop chipsets with their Forceware drivers. I have a Toshiba Portege M200 Tablet PC and the driver is dated November 2004. What is a guy to do? Well, being the geek that I am, I wanted to circumvent that. I basically opened up the nv4_disp.inf file, added a new string based on the device ID of my particular chipset (GeForce go FX5200) and then added another line. I just followed what they had in there for a regular FX5200 but subsituted my device ID and chipset ......

Tip o' the day: Early termination for cellular phone plans

Tip: In most cases, the early termination fee is applied for each phone in your account, not just for the account itself. I went into Cingular to cancel my account and move to Verizon (just because I am disgusted with Cingular's service). I was told by the representative that it was going to be $175. Well, now my bill says $525 and a call to the customer service department confirmed that it was in fact $175 per phone and not $175 for the entire account.

Bastards.

Orwellian Cubicles

I envision a Orwellian Society in the near future where everyone will change their name to Julie and every cubicle will become a Taco Bell.
