    Creative Writing: Hints [Includes Different Text Types]

    Re: Creative Writing: Hints Regarding structure, look at different short stories and identify similar patterns in the way they have been written. There is no be all and end all "perfect" story pattern (or our lives would read like newspapers!). If you're really struggling, think about drawing...

    Is extension 2 english easy?

    Don't look at how "hard" or "easy" a subject is.. it's hard to compare courses that way. Look at what you'll be doing and consider whether it's a fit for you as a student. For example: Are you good at managing your time? Will you be able to work on a major project between study for your...

    new comp specs

    I'd go for extra RAM, and get normal DDR ram (not DDR2). An extra 512mb will be useful for CAD work and will be nice when running games. Other than that - if you want to shell out more, why not a better graphics card? 6600GT is end of the line for that series. (Though I hear it's still a...

    how fast can you type? how did you learn?

    Uhg. Apparently I type fast, but I haven't tested for some time.. if I'm really concentrating my accuracy is up around 98% but generally it's 95% or so due to changing my mind about how to spell things ;p I think it's about 100-120WPM. I'm going to get RSI, so it's not that great :p...

    hijackthis log

    Is it working now? Could be the browser needs updating, altho I think you might have covered that. Or which browser are you using? Anybody else using the same ISP could be having traffic problems to that site?

    what do you personally do/recomend to keep your PC at it's best?

    I recommend .. but don't necessarily do .. a reformat every six months - a year. Generally if you have your hd partitioned it shouldn't affect any of your files (and you should back 'em up anyway) and it gets rid of all the crap that accumulates without needing to install more programs :P I...

    Top Gear, Primetime Sbs!

    Slightly OT, but Top Gear related so I thought I'd post: http://www.topgear.com/content/timetoburn/sections/galleries/other/awards05/01/ Top Gear's awards for 05, a photographic preview. :D

    Laptop Performance

    Graphics wise, I'll clarify Sunny: MOST laptops have inferior graphics cards to their desktop equivalents, mostly because of space (literally), heat and cost. Having said that, I had a Toshiba Satellite with the works once, and that had a better graphics card than my desktop at the time...

    BOS Wiki?

    I'm not sure how much information I can divulge, but I'll risk the wrath of the powers-that-be.. Registered Bored of Studies members will be allowed to edit the wiki, and yes, it's integrated into the current user database so you won't have to register if you're already a member of the...
