Hrm. There should be a setting in power options that disables disabling usb device that are not in use. Unless I'm mistaking this for something else.


Wow, didn't even think of that. If you can point me to such a setting, I will be both extremely sheepish and grateful in equal measure.

Control Panel > Power Options > Change Plan Settings > Change Advanced Power Settings > USB Settings

Change USB Selective Suspending to Disabled. That should do the trick.

Got it. Seems to have done the trick, nice one Simon.

Edit: spoke too soon. Back to my more inelegant fix until I can figure out what's going on.

Well, on top of the audio problems, which I finally pinned down to the fact that Creative cards are PCI hogs and is probably getting choked when my pci RAID controller is in use (i.e. all the goddamn time), my mobo stops turning on after shutdown unless I pull out the damn plug completely.

On the upside, more reason to get a shiny new rig.

I'm jealous - it's been quite a while since I had a desktop uber-machine. Going shopping for the parts is hella satisfying.

Apparently I have to format my essay in MLA style. The guideline for this essay was only... 500 words. 500. I can't even manage to get it that short (current draft is 678).

And the subject is on... an obscure Victorian-era science fiction author. Are we really supposed to cite our sources?

I think that the last time I used MLA formatting was when I was in 7th or 8th grade (14 yrs old?)...? Maybe high school? Boo!
Maybe you should just use "[citation needed]" instead of actually something or other.

It's good for you.

Man, 500 words is almost impossible to keep to - conference abstracts have to be that short too, and it takes me all day to cut it down.

My weekend was fucking horrible.

I'm too tired of it to relate about it now.

This pisses me off because even though i brush and floss daily and regularly I STILL LOSE ENAMEL! Apparently its something with my genetics. Either way i just paid enough to buy a used car.

So my old sub-woofer was having weird things with power. Even without a signal it'd occasionally make weird noise. So I replaced it. Now the new one, which I've only had for a few days, is dead.

Great.

Deus Ex: Invisible War.

No, not the small environments, or the hacked down gameplay. I haven't managed to get far enough to get pissed by that yet.

It's that the game runs a new instance every fucking time it loads a level. What the fuck?

I never had that issue with the PC version. I had many other issues with it though.
