    The animatrix

    Only seen #3 (ie, detective story) and thought it was so-so. Although I have to admit that the animation is awesome, particularly that flame. Apparently there are nine animatrix films, true?

    Help a tourist?

    I know this is rather "offtopic" offtopic but could you bear me out. Basically I need any infomation on Frankfurt and Dublin. The tickets are booked (somewhat) and soon you'll have one more group of Australian backpackers do deal with. Any help appreciated, thanks for anything posted

    Apache down - how?

    A recently as you may remember, an apache was shot down by your average joe-blow ak47 toting farmer and the crew were consequentially captured. Now, I have always been under the impression that unlike the old huey, the apache was well armoured and could take a small armour fire beating. And then... After the apache was shot down, it was not destroyed by the crew... or an airstrike! From what I've learnt from readings to whatever, this goes against a few things. Could someone explain this plz?

    Mystery illness

    Are all the fatalities elderly? I know that here(australia) there are quite a few people who die from the common flu but this is only because they are older and their bodies aren't what they used to be. Big difference between super viruses and hardy viruses.

    Best combat training in the world

    Changed my mind from "other" to "brit. SAS" too late The british have had the SAS going for like 50years and have special forces down to a fine art. That is not to say that the other forces have lesser soldiers.

    How the apache works

    While we are on the topic of helis. Could someone find something on the blackhawk. I am recently interested in it because of a book i recently read on an ex-delta force operator breifly describing a mission with the blackhawk (not black hawk down).

    Trouble upgrade

    All the tech ideas floating around here are good but there is one more possibility which seems reasonable since you had your computer previously working. It could be a virus, in particular the nasty melisa virus, which stops the computer from booting, but as there was nothing upon power button/ignition ( ), i also say it was likely the psu because of your chunky upgrade. best see the professionals
