  1. Had pot roast, corn, carrots, and noodles with gravy for dinner and a glass of red wine. Then I had two warm brownies with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top with a glass of milk.
  2. So I replaced the power supply and the restarts stopped for a while. Now it is happening again...almost once a day. The case is clear of dust and the processor is running at 50 celcius (like it always has). Could the motherboard be going bad? Family can't afford a new system right now....need to piece this one back together for now.
  3. My post was just reminding people that truth is not relative. People will sometimes say, "There is no truth." To which my response is, "Is that true?"
  4. There is only one truth. 2+2 = 4. You may think it's 5, or 27 or 88 but it won't be true. All views are not true. You're either right or wrong.
  5. I have learned some of the greatest examples of compassion from people of little or no faith....or those who don't openly profess faith. There is nothing wrong with openly discussing faith or sharing it with them. However, throwing bible scriptures at someone will rarely do good. If you really want to spread the message of Jesus Christ, befriend someone and share some life experiences with one another. If they see your uniqueness and question, by all means share what your faith means to you and how it affects your life. There is also nothing wrong with offering them to come along to church etc. The world could use less bible thumping and more understanding toward each other. We are all human, we are all sinners to a point....we all desire a connection of some sort. Connect with them first, and then go from there if so inclined. Instead of explaining the errors of there ways and throwing sentences of judgment, teach through peace, understanding, compassion and firmness of spirit. Jesus didn't exactly going around throwing books at people. He connected with the people, helped them with their needs and showed his love for them by example. This led them to follow him and put their faith in his message. Follow his example, and maybe people will put their faith in the message as well. Citing passages from scripture are an extremely poor way to get people inclined...in fact it usually annoys them as evidence by this thread.
  6. You don't put your faith in any person. You put your faith in God and God alone. Jesus warned of putting your faith in any man....even a preacher for all men are fallible...even the most faithful. P.S - Joe C and TX, you are absolutely right.
  7. Sir T was asking why God allows evil in the world (the classic problem of evil). I was not saying that people are inherently evil just because they don't believe in God.
  8. Sir T, evil isn't necessarily an entity of some kind. Just like darkness is the absence of light, evil is the absence of love (or God). The Bible says God is love. Evil is the result of separation from God. The point about the whole hell thing. The idea is that as parents who love their children, you don't let them do drugs and disrespect you. You punish them when they are bad because love isn't permissive. If you think love is defined by letting someone do whatever they want and accepting them back you're mistaken. Permissive love isn't love at all.
  9. Going to Church doesn't make you a Christian any more than going into a garage makes you a car. Hypocrisy is in every person of all walks of life. To be imperfect is human.
  10. Edward, my prayers will be with your son and his two friends.
  11. My dad is looking to purchase a shotgun (mainly for home defense). Anybody have recommendations? Can you go wrong with a Remington? 12 gauge? Also interested in those shotgun shells that don't go through Sheetrock.
  12. Thanks JoeC, Ordered this one which says it is compatible with an HP 725n. It is only 250watt but at least I know it is compatible. If the system ran 7 years on a 200watt this one should be fine. If my parents get another 1 year out of this computer they will be happy. http://www.athenapower.us/prohtml/ap_mps3atx25.html http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16817338005 Thanks for you help, much appreciated.
  13. The issue I'm having is not being to find a name-brand power supply that specifically states that it is compatible with my system. Here is an example of products I get: http://www.xpcgear.com/apmps3atx40.html Says it is compatible with an hp 725 but it is a no name? If I could find an Antec or reputable brand for $50 I'd buy it at this point. Just don't want to get a piece of junk that is going to give me more headaches. My question is this: As long as I get a microATX 2.2 PS3 (which by my research is exactly what I need) that has dimensions that are the same or smaller than my current power supply, would it be safe to assume that it will work fine? I'm willing to krazy glue the dang thing in at this point if the screws don't line up.
