Single processing Vista?



  • I'll let the picture speak for itself.

     Windows unknown device

    I am still working of finding the driver, so wich me good luck ;)

  •  You might want to replace "wich me good luck" with "wish me good luck" :-)

    thx, god, i'd be jobless if ppl would stop typoing!

    P.S.: This is a friendly advice, I'm not a spelling nazi.



  • I see no WTF here. Windows frequently fails to find drivers for stuff. Also, unless the definition of "coprocessor" has changed since I learned it, "coprocessor"!="another processor". Correct me if I'm wrong, but "coprocessor" refers to an add-on to a processor, like the floating-point unit on the early 80x86 chips.



  • Coprocessor? What's that, an excrement tax calculator?

    nice, a spelling correction and a Godwinning, lol,

    you forgot to put "FIRST!1!!!" too,

    it would have been the ultimate forum post

    And you forgot to use the shift key or anything resembling proper punctuation.

    Don't give the liberal, global-warming's-going-to-kill-us-all politicians ideas. They just might implement an "excrement tax" someday -- the more a person produces, the more energy he has used and the more "carbon" they emit. This is just an easier alternative to taxing people based on how much they breathe.

    Anyway, Spectre, the device you'll be looking for is called a "scale" or a "beaker" (depending on how your tax is based), not a "coprocessor".

     Uhm, was this supposed to be funny? You just pointed out your ignorance.

    As said before, a coprocessor is usually an additional processor to support another processor. The x87 was such a coprocessor once, until it got merged into x86, but the name "[Mathematical] Coprocessor" or "Floating Point Unit" remained, even if they are both non-existent, so if nowadays somebody of the older guys (that is, 20yrs +) talks about a Coprocessor, it is often the FPU that is meant. (Oh, was this phrase recursive now?)

    Wait a sec. You are Mario and Luigi? How the hell? I never knew they were... you are Siamese twins!

    We'll be right back with the more of Humorless Know-it-alls, right after this commercial break.

    At least you'll be able to avoid taxes by consuming the carbon back.

    There is no way any politician would propose a tax on generating excrement; they'd all get taxed into bankruptcy.

    Since when has bankruptcy stopped a politician? They'd just increase their paychecks and wait one term before passing the bill or just exempt the people in the capital city.

    On the other hand, this tax would be a great way to get <insert bad company here> out of the picture.
