  1. If you don't see a possible long term relationship with the girl, then don't even bother trying. If you do, ask your friend about how he would feel. If he doesn't like the idea, then it comes down to how important a friend he is. Remember that good friends become harder to find as you get older.
  2. Use a system resource monitor and check how much various programs are taxing the CPU. I think you can access a system resource monitor in Windows XP by hitting Ctrl+Alt+Delete. If you're using Windows 9x, consider trying a program like this (I've never used it, so be wary of spyware, trojans, viruses, etc.): http://www.niresoft.com/tm.asp
  3. This post is a bit old, but it helps people learn the jargon. To 'dump' something means to create a bit-by-bit copy of data from one media to another, where the copy is known as an 'image'. So instead of saying you created an ISO from a CD-ROM, you could say that you 'dumped' a 'disk image' of the CD-ROM. In the case of ROMs ('ROM images'), it means copying the data from the ROM chip inside the cartridge to a file on a PC. So 'dumping' a game copies both the data and the program code into a file. By reading the code from a file, a program can read each instruction in the code and do stuff that would create results similar to if the game were being played on a real system. This is basically how an emulator works.
  4. Say, where are the rules and policies for this message board's forums?
  5. You can modify an existing emulator to play songs from a folder, but they wouldn't be synchronized to the anything in the game. You'd probably have to give up sound effects too. However, it'd be relatively straightforward if you use an open source emulator. Actually putting the music in an NES ROM requires learning about how to program the NES's sound chip in 6502 assembly and the audio format of the data sent to it. Look up some documents on NSF ripping and NES tech specs, and maybe you can figure out some specifics. I don't think anyone's ever succeeded in it though.
  6. I'd suggest using an x86 DOS emulator if you can't run DOS programs. If all else fails, give me the complete ROM specs and a copy of the ROM, and maybe I could write a program that could handle it.
  7. To your second question: sorry to say this, but there's no point. Parallel port devices always use a proprietary protocol. Even if you created a Parallel Port to USB adapter, it'd only change where the data stream is sent. It'd still be the same data, so you'd have to have the same drivers, only now they'd have to be designed to use the USB port. The odds of some other USB device using the same protocol as your MP3 player are nil. This is because most USB devices use a standard set of protocols that allow one driver to work with hundreds of devices, although they also tend to use proprietary protocols for non-standard features (e.g. A Wacom tablet uses both the standard USB Mouse protocol, or it can use its own protocol for things like pressure sensitivity). Besides, all USB devices have Vendor IDs and Device IDs, which are used by USB drivers to bind themselves to devices. This means you can't just get any driver to attempt to speak with the device you attach, because they're designed only to recognize and work with certain IDs. You can look to see if someone reverse engineered the driver's protocol. Almost nobody bothers doing something like that though, unless they can sell the result. EDIT: Looks like the manufacturer decided to completely drop all information on their product on their website (as if it never existed). If they won't cooperate, try asking for some technical specifications for open source driver authors to use.
  8. Well, I'm new here. I'm the administrator of this site's current server.
  9. 135, and it called me a "Facts Curator." They say your Emotional Quotient is more important than your IQ. Guess I'll go look up this Chakra test. Anyway, looks like this is still EMode, although they changed the name of the site to Tickle. EDIT: Chakra test results:
