    Pretty much everything to do with guitar.
  1. I've tried restarting in every mode possible mode; safe mode, last known settings, anything. It may very well be that I mussed up my harddrive when I was moving my computer around. I have several harddrives kicking around my house, I'll try to reinstall windows to a new one and place my old harddrive in as well, that way windows won't be trying to boot from the apparently broken one. Just a theory, hopefully it works :/ Keep in mind I've given up hoping time will fix this, as it's been almsot a week with this problem persisting in the exact same manner it behaved the first time. EDIT:
  2. Today Richard Wright, one of the co-founders of Pink Floyd, one of the most respected musicians of classic rock, lost his long standing battle to cancer. Today I kept hearing lots of Floyd on the radio and wondered what was happening and the dj reported that Rick had unfortunately passed away due to cancer. I'm inexpressibly saddened by this news and can't stop listening to Floyd Farewell Richard
  3. Hey guys, well, I moved my computer from my basement to my den and now when I turn it on it goes through everything and gets to the windows loading screen (Windows logo with 3 blue bars moving horizontally through a clear bar) it stays there for X amount of time. I went to bed after turning it on and it was STILL at the loading screen, with the bars scrolling. I tried to reinstall windows via the disc but I keep getting a disk checking error :/ Any help? I'm sure there's someone kickin' around with a whole lot of knowledge about pcs. Maybe that's just a little wishful thinking though. p.
  4. Hey guys, well I've got this GCB-95 that I bought for cheap off a friend who said it didn't work. As far as I can tell there's no damage to the pcb board and all the components work, but I think my friend messed up the switch wiring. Here's what the switch is like (from left to right, top to bottom of the switch) 1-Green, which connects to the wiring harness 2-Two blue, one which goes to the pot and the other to the wiring harness 3-Yellow, which goes to a capacitor on the board 4-Purple which goes to the wiring harness 5-Red, connects this and the next node together. I figured it mu
  5. I've had this old GCB-95 kicking around for a while and I've been meaning to fix it - or get it fixed- but have never really had the time but now that high school is over I figure I might as well. It works when I have my guitar in, and then the wah into the input on my amp but it only works as a bypass. So when I turn it on I just get this strange low-pitched hum and when I turn it off it just works as a bypass. Any insight on this problem? Thanks
  6. Yeah, it's a pretty strange name. Used to be a gigantic military fort when the english started colonizing North America, Fort Sackville. We didn't get any of the Super 14 games though
  7. I'm a pretty big Rugby fan, I was surprised Six Nations was aired here in Canada this year. Was great to watch, definitely got me pumped for the upcoming season
  8. Hmmm... I'm still getting the message "Could not find input or output hardware". Here is my setup, maybe I'm doing something wrong, wouldn't be surprised. Guitar--->Cable--->Adapter so it will fit into the soundcard plugs--->Vox Cooltron Big Ben--->Realtek AC'97 Line-In. Even if I try it without the pedal into Mic it doesn't work :/ Might have to crack and buy the USB adapter
  9. Hey guys, I have Amplitube 2.1 and I'm trying to use it via plugging my guitar directly into my soundcard with an adapter that'll change the 1/4" plug to a 1/8'' one so it can be plugged in. However, Amplitube isn't picking it up no matter how I fiddle with the settings. Help?
  10. I already had steam, and I just activated HL on steam, so should I install Sven Coop to the Sierra/HL folder, or the steam folder?
  11. So I've been sitting around getting bored of world of warcraft and felt like playing some good ol' Sven Coop, so I reinstall half-life and then install sven 3.0 to the hl folder and when I open Sc it tries to connect to the old WON Server :S anyone know how to update original retail half-life to steam? I've been looking all over and can't find a thing.
  12. The exact same thing happened with another friend that night, and he had booze ON him! Can you understand my frustration now?
  13. I said I was done, but for this I have to make an exception. You're trying to compare me skipping a class to me getting charged for underage drinking? I didn't even know that happened, I wasn't spoken to about it by either of my parents.
  14. I really have no idea what you're talking about Pmarlin. This is the first time I've been in some kind of legal trouble, and believe you me, this place is the last place I'd turn if I needed help. The last time I recall asking anyone on here for help was about a teacher. To get to the point, say what you will, because the fact remains that it's an internet forum, and I know none of you, and could really care less what you think about me as a person. You don't know me, and I don't know you. I came on here to get some help, not to start a fight. So if you guys want to sit around and point ou
  15. Here's the full story even though it's really not necessary to see why I'd be stressed/aggravated about this situation: Walking home, cop pulls over "How old are you?" "17" "You been drinking?" "No, officer." "Take a seat pal" so like a good person, I sit down. "Do you know why you're here?" "No, sir." "Alright, well I'm going to call your parents and have them pick you up" "Alright." so my father gets there, I step out of the cruiser, then the cop hands me a ticket. So I peace out and go home. End of story. You know, when I said "I don't want people who will say 'Wahh underage drinking b
