  1. personally, i stick to the allowed medium when doing projects. could it be that you were not intrested and missed that announcement, LOL you should have said ok, hold on, and printed it out from PP and turned it in.
  2. CC, what are you talking about? the stimulus checks were an advanced tax CREDIT on the 2008 year taxes.... how could that be taxable, LOL. the only reason it has to be noted correctly on the 2008 return is that it is actually a credit that you get. they aren't taxable. secondly, last years return is the ONLY place to pick up your AGI. i would have figured that ADJUSTED would point out the fact that AGI is not your gross wages found on W2 forms, but indeed the total income you are filing with after NUMEROUS deductions are taken out. one such is the moving expenses i encured this season. also other items are added to your gross to get your AGI such as alimony. so it has EVERYTHING to do with matching last years return and the AGI listed. pretty much has nothing to do with your employers W2 forms though. and your last statement about reporting half your income on your 1040, that will get you a jail sentenance for purjury. do you post anything with facts in it? your last few have been seemingly made up. <Eclipse, lol, one silly mistake can throw it out like that. glad you cuaght it this time though!
  3. if you used turbo tax last year, print out the 07 return and use the same numbers. double check ssn and the spelling of your name and address. requesting tech support from TT would be the next step if you have a copy of your 07 return to show it's correct. would also get ahold of the irs as TT isn't rejecting the return, the IRS is rejecting it. ask them why it is rejected as you have last years return showing the agi. double check to make sure no amended returns were filed last year as this would throw off the numbers.
  4. there's no "limit", but there is a couple that are included in the purchase price. filing short, i'm not sure why you would have sprung for the desktop product, lol. usually the desktop version is for people with exstensive investments, houses or stocks and what not, or for small business owners. also provides year round access to your filings and the ability to rool info over from year to year (which i can get the online one to do only once before.) the BIG thing with turbo tax. every version (minus the highest end small business product) includes and can fill out the same forms. from the free file to the premium. the only difference is how much "hand holding" is done, and that is what you pay for. the higher the price, the more "walk through" guidance you get on your taxes. you also pick up phone support either 1 time, or unlimitedfor premium. highest package gets year round phone support, not just tax season. also get audit support (which is not audit protection, just advise) on the paid products beyond basic. if you make less than 30,000agi, you can file using turbo tax freedom for free.
  5. you're more or less buying the update each year, but the desktop version offers features (that i have no use for) that the online setup doesn't. i believe now that 5 federal filings are included with the desktop purchase also.
  6. 10/100baseT use Cat5/5e cable. same thing. TX stands for a crossover Cat5/5e cable that is used when directly connecting two computers, or two older hubs/switches and cable run length is something like 300 feet or what not.... you're well within the range. if you don't feel like crimping your own cables, best buy and what not sell pre made cables up to 100 feet, but it may end up costing the same to buy a wireless setup, lol.
  7. depends on the age of the socket type. if it's older, then you MIGHT, but it'll cost a pretty penny. i'd just pick up a handfull of network cards, or just one, depending on use. as far as ability, that will easily handle print and file serve duties. might want a larger HD though for file serving. could also setup an apache server on it or the likes. as for network security, i believe you'd need two nics and set it up like a router and expand it's firewall and packet inspection capabilities. other than desire, i don't see a reason unless you have very valuable info that a off the shelf router wouldn't protect. using it as a router exposes it though, so i don't think i'd use it then as a file server...
  8. um, most checks are void after 90-180 days. wouldn't that complete the financial transaction? i'm sure though that this isn't a true idea. paying your ticket admits guilt in the crime (speeding) as opposed to apearing in court to fight it.
  9. ya, looks to be the same product, different branding. built on the same Wusb standard as apposed to the old attempt at usb over adhoc wifi.
  10. well, i suppose all first gen items that are the very first out will have qwuirks. if we end up going this route on a blind guess, lol, i will post back my experience oh, and from trying to find reviews, it seems that wireless usb will be poised to take over the bluetooth range, once it gets up to speed. think about 480Meg/s over 30 feet!
  11. reviews show it has a real life throughput of about 2.5 MB/s, about 40 minutes to transfer 1 Gig of files..... slow but being the only one and first of the new wireless usb standard, not damn bad i think. looking at a screen shot i could see a "device category" that showed a keyboard and mouse... SO i would assume that this may work? lol, gotta love new stuff
  12. i'm asking because they are willing to use ONLY the keyboard they picked out.... something like this though? http://www.iogear.com/product/GUWH104KIT/
  13. ok, do they make such a thing that would take a plug in usb keyboard and make it wireless? i'm getting ready to do a build for a bed bound person and they have their pc across the room by the tv, BUT they are only wanting one specific themed keyboard that only comes in a corded usb variety. so i'm thinking of say a receiver plugs into the computer usb slot and then across the room the wired keyboard plugs into a usb port on a transmiter of sorts.
  14. well, with my tax return i'm finally going to upgrde my 80 gig sata laptop drive. right now i've got a 5400 8meg unit. small and slow. i was looking on newegg and i see the 320gig drives so i assume that them being sata3 would work in my sata laptop? (can't figure out if my inspiron 1520 is sata2) so ig uess that would make it just down to brand between WD, seagate, or the on sale hitatchi(which is currently in my lappy). which do you prefer? and does the ncq from seagate really boost performance?
  15. when i was actually still in college, i had a couple unix course for server admin. i know it's different, but close enough. anyways, i never ended up learning anything about server admin and decided to drop it and persue a different path. we spent a whole semester learning how to load a dial in screen to a unix server. once that was done it was basically console 101. my days in DOS were enough to get me through his course w/out a book, LOL. figured out how to make a command do more than one thing, or how to sort search results..... hardest one was how to get that clock program to come up w/ custom graphics. i decided to quit, LOL but i also thought it was extremely silly to be attempting anything linux/unix from a room full of windows computers....
  16. i unplug mine and run it under the fuacet. if juice or beer get spilled in it, then i run it under the fuacet, soak it, then tear each key apart and hit the stickies w/ alchol and qtips. or i'll go buy another one.
  17. i believe it's chevy that made a new vehicle i seen on the lot next door to work, it's an FJ Cruiser (according to the tag, never seen one before) looks like a pt cruiser, but with sharp corners. far worse than the flex or matrix i like that silverado, but then again i like the bold features, not really one for styling a vehicle to look slip streamed if it isn't meant to do 100+. that said, i seen the rims that the factory is putting on some of the new dodges, WTH. who puts giant rims w/ 1'' tires on a 1500?!?!?!
  18. that's one router, but thoose are all books you need to buy to learn the "secrets". if it's worth 30 or so bux to you, i'd say get it and the worst that'll happen is the xbox will still be broke...
  19. if you are just testing for bandwidth, than most any "speed test" will work for you, just ignore the alarming latency or ping that is returned. these tests just measure how fast your download rate is. now if you run voip or qos tests, you might run into some issue as these test latency and tcp pauses more than just raw speeds. "speed tests" usually don't take this into consideration.
