 2006/3/5-7 [Consumer/Audio] UID:42100 Activity:nil 3/5 iPod News: SFPD ids hit & run victim using her iPod: http://www.nbc11.com/news/7647999/detail.html \_ Wow! The iPod is so advanced that it can actually serves the purpose of a piece of feather-weight cheap-o DMV ID! \_ Now, did the iPod contribute to her getting hit? Pope gets an iPod: http://www.catholicnews.com/data/stories/cns/0601282.htm \_ But does he use bit torrent?
 2006/3/5-8 [Science/Electric] UID:42101 Activity:low 3/5 If an appliance is 220V, can I get an adapter or something for it because I have 120V? Thanks. \_ A transformer, yes. \_ I had a similar problem. You need to be very careful about the actual wattage of your appliance. A transformer that withstands large wattage tend to be very very big (size of couple bricks and weights accordinly). *FURTHER* You can *NOT* just look at the weights accordinly). *FURTHER* You look can NOT just look at the peak wattage, let say, 200 watts, and shop for a transformer that can handles just 200 watts. There is some sort of multiple (of that 200 watts) is involved. You need to bug other people on MOTD who actually passed Physics 7B to give you the answer. -kngharv \_ Your house normally has a 220-240V mains that is seperated into two 110-120V circuits. You can combine these to provide a 220V outlet. An electrician can put one of these outlets in for you. \_ Your house has 240V mains which is basicly split in two to make your\ two 120V circuits. You can have an electrician set up a 240V outlet,\ which will be easier to transform down (if necessary) to 220. \_ While this is true, whether this is a good idea or not depends on the appliance. In this case it's probably some kind of euro import or something, which would mean it's probably a bad idea. \_ Sure, if there is a motor, the 60Hz will cause some problems for something wound for 50Hz. Many appliances have no problems though. So really, what the hell is this appliance? \_ If it's something portable, like a router, etc, you can probably get by with a transformer or voltage converter. However, if we are talking about electric dryer, then you BETTER get an electrican and get a proper 220v outlet.
 2006/3/5-7 [Reference/History/WW2/Germany] UID:42102 Activity:kinda low 3/5 German John, do you have a picture of you wearing a lederhosen? \_ hi kchang! \_ omgwtfbbq?!?! -kchang \_ "He was young, he needed the money" \_ Sorry, I may be a bit slow here, but I don't get it. Where is the fascination coming from? Aside from the fact that I'm not German and I'm not a nazi (as the Heil Cherman John Guys imply), I don't fascination coming from? Aside from the fact that I'm neither German, nor a nazi as the Heil Cherman John Guys imply, I don't understand the point of these posts. They aren't witty, creative, funny or even offensive. Rather, they come across as sort of sad and pathetic. I'm not asking you to stop, as it's really a non- issue to me, I'm just sort of curious as to why you bother. Can one of the HCJG explain for the benefit of all of us? -John issue to me, I'm just sort of curious as to why you bother. Could one of the HCJGs explain for the benefit of all of us? -John \_ When I was in junior high school we had a kid in the class whose name was Stanley. For some reason the collective consciousness off the class had decided that "Stanley" was a hilarious name. of the class had decided that "Stanley" was a hilarious name. So whenever his name got called out the whole class would start yelling "Stanley stanley stanley" while Stanley would sit and have a "WTF?" look on his face. It's totally stupid and pointless and people don't have anything better to do. pointless and people don't have anything better to do, at least if they have a junior high school level of mentality. \_ It's all about getting a rise out of ya. -!op
 2006/3/5-6 [Uncategorized] UID:42103 Activity:nil 3/5 TeX question: Does anyone know how I can make a dot appear on top of a letter (like \d but on the top instead of the bottom)? \_ \dot{a} should give you an "a" with a dot over it in LaTeX.
