Now that's weird. I remember seeing something similar when I'd Win7 installed...
But I glanced at it quickly on the assumption I'd 32Bit installed and read it assuming
it was quoting that only 3GB were available... hmmm. Now you've got me thinking.
But I don't have Win7 installed just now...

....I'm back, but only as a part-timer... :)

I was wondering if it had something to do with dual booting with XP, but it shouldn't should it?

No that shouldn't have any problems. Is it 64Bit or 32Bit you have installed?

Damn I read your image wrong lol.
If you're using 32Bit Win7, it's still going to only read 3GB of RAM rather than
the 4GB of RAM you'd use if you were to use 64Bit. Just wondering why you opted
for 32Bit since you have 64Bit system?

I'm an old fuddy duddy. I like my programs and am too lazy to go scrounging for 64 bit versions. And yes the 3GB's is a limitation on 32 bit systems regardless of which one it is. I didn't know that.

Lol! Hey I just checked out your webpage. Some cool pics there. Wish I could travel
back in time to your young days for a day just to see what it was like!

Well I was bored. More into NOFX, Bad Religion, Pennywise, that kind of stuff. And Neil Young too! Actually I like Armor For Sleep. If it's labeled alternative I probably like it.

Thats cool. I used to like armor for sleep a lot (still have 2 of their CD's), but since then i've gotten into more heavier stuff. Bands like whitechapel, emmure, suicide silence, my bitter end, parkway drive, stuff you probably never heard of and will never listen to. HEAVY CRAZY DEATH METAL stuff lol

Like your website btw.

You know what's funny? I pulled up My Bitter End on rhapsody, and while I was listening to it, I looked at the "Similar Albums" list, and it had Neil Young Tom Waits and Stevie Ray Vaughn. WTF are they smoking?

Absolute majority of "old" 32bit apps work on 64bit Windows without any issues. Really the only thing you need to "scrounge" for are 64bit drivers - but if you have a fairly recent computer everything should be well-supported out of the box.

They were OK. Too many bands with that guttural hope it sounds demonic scream thing on the vocals. They need to listen to Ozzie on the first Black Sabbath album. Now that was evil. The first time I heard them I was peaking on acid! My tastes are all over the place. On my player right now (I go to sleep with my head phones on LOL) are Backseat Virgins, Beth Orton, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Basement, The Black Watch, and The Blakes. I have 26,000 mp3 files and 655 different bands in my library, not counting the Various Artists folders. On those sites where they ask your favorite genre I always put Post death gloom techno industrial shoegazer emo sub pop. :)

gahahah yeah. well MBE is more of a melodical prog hardcore metal type. i hate the singing style of most of the bands i listen to. i cant stand the pig squeeling and growling, but as a guitar (7 string)/bass player, i love the complexity and the heavy breakdowns of all these newer crazy metal bands.

i recommend you take a listen to the band Isis if u haven't already. the cd Panopticon is a perfect mushroom trip ("So we did" is awesome). also listen to He is legend's 91025 EP its fu*kin amazing.

Guitar player eh? My favorite right now is Nick Saloman from Bevis Frond. The first 5 albums were recorded in his house so the production values suck, but the guitar playing is sweet. Triptych is my favorite album of his.

Were "Sweet Leaf", "Orchid", and "Children of the Grave" off of the first, second or third album? I can't remember.

Hey! Payton,
could you give me the names of the first 2? I actually may have them on vinal (sorry for the wrong SP but I couldn't figure out the right one! Spell checker on HWA anyone?), but would like to look for a digital version, or have a reason to hook up a 35 yr old turntable in order to sort through the stack of half speed masters that I have.
