CD Drive refusing to cooperate.

05 May 2009 - 08:42 PM

Whenever I put in a cd(music, application, whatever), it refuses to autoplay. This is quite a problem for music cds, as I cannot do anything at all with them.



The problem first started after using a quickbooks application cd. As you can see, the drive is called QBCA(numbers), which I do not think is a coincidence.

Changing autoplay options in properties has no effect.

I'm running xp service pack 3, I don't have a dvd drive, and I've used applications like daemon tools before, if that could cause the problem.



The drive name remains QBCA(numbers), even when the drive is empty. I also have only one optical drive, not two which is what is being shown for some reason. EDIT: I disabled my emulator and the second optical drive (E:) disappeared.

An image of what is happening:

Any help is greatly appreciated. :)







EDIT: Solved the problem with some help, thanks.

0.999...=1 and why people believe it is false.

17 April 2009 - 12:07 AM

Recently, I've had a couple arguments with people disputing the fact that 0.999...=1, a couple on the internet and a couple in real life.



It seems to me that this is one of the most commonly disputed mathematical facts, along with the Monty Hall problem, and it is also by far one of the simplest.

Even after repeated proofs I've sent to people, they still appear to intuitively distrust this.



I've come to the conclusion that most of these people are ignorant that 0.999.... indicates that the 9's go on forever, infinitely, and thus never reach an end point, and thus, in fact, do equal one.





To dissuade people from changing the topic and trying to argue that 0.999 !=1, I've included a couple of proofs.







Can anyone think of an alternate explanation for this phenomen? Why would otherwise rational people, who can accept easily that 0.333....=(1/3) and that 0.333...*3=1 (by fractional definitions), be unable to accept this particular mathematical fact?

Void Ranged Armour in Fight Caves

25 October 2008 - 03:42 AM

Well, I lost my fire cape for the fourth time a few months ago, and I've finally decided to go get another one now.

This time, however, I have void ranged armour, so I'm wondering how it would perform compared to a conventional setup.

I'm fairly adept at safespotting and luring fight cave monsters, so I don't need much defence.

Below are pictures of my projected setups. Please note that I will not buy:

*archer ring

*ranger boots

*unholy book



Because I don't want to spend the cash and/or cannot purchase them due to junk trading/scarcity.



Any equipment recommendations or experience on void in the fight caves would be appreciated :)

I'll probably use emerald bolts and an explorer ring.

I have an armadyl helm that I might use in the conventional setup, still deciding however.

Thanks!
