I've gotten over $200 in cash back from them at places I would have shopped anyway! Ebay, Staples, more! I put it at the top because they ROCK. Basically, you get a kickback from Ebates when buy.com or whoever pays them. Win-win. If you like throwing money away, don't use them!

Further proof of the Generation Gap

I asked Kimberly for the 45th time to put away something she'd taken out.

Kim: "I know!..."

Me: "...and *knowing* is half the battle. Do you know who said that?"

Kim: "Einstein?"

Parallels 5 Performance Tip:

I had trouble using 8 cores on and XP Pro virtual machine with 3072MB RAM allocated.

It was very slow, which makes no sense given the specs of my Mac Pro and the resources allocated.

Short story: go back to 2 cores, and 2 gigs of RAM. This is fine for XP, and it runs a LOT better.

My theory is that this old version of Parallels doesn't handle that many cores well.
