The thing is that when a monopoly ends up producing less than what would be produced in perfect competition, it frees up resources that can be used up in other industries, thus affecting demand and supply in those other industries in favor of more production.

This game is titled “Vocabulary Chipper Chat” so it is obvious that it focuses on vocabulary. It works on 12 different vocabulary skills. Some tasks are fill-in-the-blank, some require multiple answers to questions or prompts, and some only require one answer. All of the cards have visual pictures on one side and prompts/sentences/questions/context clues on the other.most effective weapons against herpes

PCLinuxOS 2k7

Was able to install PCLinuxOS 2007 (Final) on my Lenovo Thinkpad x60.

  • Installation was smooth and never encountered problems (make sure you dont have any other programs running when you hit “install to hard disk”. I used a bootable USB drive since this model doesnt come with a CD/DVD drive.
  • Wifi and USB works perfectly. Can detect inserted drives and easily detects wifi networks.
  • Be careful with Blue function buttons because not everything works as expected. ie Fn + Home (Increase Brightness) will blank your screen, Fn + F4 (Standby mode) will work but wont “wake up” successfully. Dont forget to enable the KMilo plugin under KDE Control Center | System Administration (Its for Thinkpad buttons)
  • Default video players doesnt work. Had to Install VLC to watch avi file (tv shows)
  • Sound doesnt work by default. Workaround: Terminate Kmixer and any other app thats uses audio and run alsaconf as root. If you restart the OS, you will have to do it again. (I'm still looking for a permanent fix)
kerb, 2007/11/18 19:08

Solved: Fn + Home (Increase Brightness) will blank your screen
Solution: edit the /etc/modprobe.conf and add the line “alias video off” (The blacklist solution doesnt work.)
Explanation: There is conflict with the ACPI video module.

kerb, 2007/11/18 23:25

Solved: Sound doesnt work by default.
Solution: Upgrade kernel to kernel-2.6.22.10.tex1
Explanation: ALSA related bug in kernel 2.6.18.8.tex5

x60 + fedora 7

while f7 installs easily and quickly, there are a number of issues that need to be resolved. Some (as stated) are relatively simple, others not. It is an oversimplification to say “it is fairly straightforward” w/o stating that you lose functionality w/o a lot of research and action after install. That being said, F7 runs some much faster than vista on this LT (1.86, 1.5gram, 60ghd) it is crazy. Some issues so far: need to get fingerprint reader support, blue button support, LT will not wake from sleep, will not go into sleep w/o manually entering state, wireless net connection does not automatically start, unexpected behavior from “touchpad buttons”, wireless led does not work, not all FN functions work, etc. Overall experience so far is excellent, but needs a bunch of work. comments to kenfo(at)tcg-avl(dot)com
