How to Use Whose and Who's Correctly


HOME ยป Education

Although "whose" and "who's" sound the same, these words have different meanings and spellings. Learn how to use "whose" and "who's" correctly so your meaning will be clear. The apostrophe is key to determining which spelling is correct.Difficulty:Moderately EasyInstructions Spell both words, and notice that "who's" has an apostrophe. An apostrophe means that letters or words have been left out. In this situation, "who's" is a short way to write "who is."
Decide which meaning you intend. Choose "who's" when you mean "who is," as in "Who's going to clean the mud off this carpet?" Replacing "who's" with "who is" makes sense in this context. If "who is" doesn't make sense in the sentence,

It's a basic grammar and spelling rule you learned in grade school, but the words "it's" (a contraction) and "its" (a possessive pronoun) are often used incorrectly, thanks to that darn little apostrophe. The following tips will help you understand the difference between "it's" and "its" so that you'll always use them properly.Difficulty:EasyInstructions Understand that the word "it's" is a contraction of two words - "it" and "is" or "it" and "has" - so it requires the use of an apostrophe. Try putting both words in your sentence before using "it's" to see if it makes sense. For example, the sentence "The dog chased its ball" simply wouldn't make sense as "The dog chased it is ball."

How to Use a Waiter's Corkscrew Correctly
Education
Have you ever gone to a restaurant and seen a server struggle to open a bottle of wine? It's frustrating, because anyone who would bother to buy (or bring) a bottle of wine to a meal probably knows how to uncork it properly. The traditional waiter's key, or waiter's corkscrew, works differently than the type in which arms rise on either side as the screw cranks into the cork, but it is relatively easy to master.Difficulty:Moderately EasyInstructions Things You'll Need

My current scenario is this:
1 cable modem + 1 wireless router in a room.
2 wireless laptops that connect to the wireless router throughout the house
1 wireless desktop that connects to the wireless router.
2 desktops in that same room that don't connect to the internet at all.
I need a way to provide internet access to the two PC's without getting each one a wireless card, because I'm limited on cash at the moment.
here's what I have:

When I go to my laptop, running WinXP Pro, and select 'Start' 'Programs'
then right click on any listed folder or shortcut there, I get a quick
'flash' of something. Too quick to read anything...but no normal right click
menu! I use this to re-sort the folders/programs on all of my other
machines, but it won't even bring up the menu on the Laptop. I did a clean
install, from the HP disks, and everything went well, everything else works
fine. Any ideas?

New SLI configuration and not sure if it's done correctly.
Education
So yesterday I took the GTX 550ti out of my arcade cabinet and put in my primary development / gaming machine. Since I already had an 550 Ti in that machine I figured I would run them in SLI.
My primary goal was to configure Surround across two monitors, however the Surround configuration never popped up in the Nvidia Control panel, I just ran two monitors off the first 550 and the second on the third using the MiniHDMI since it was going to a TV I could use the Cards audio chip for the TV audio when needed.
Nice and all, but I don't know if I'm getting additional performance or if I would ever be able to run surround? If not, then I'm not apposed to buying
