|How to Use It's and Its Correctly|
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 Correctly Use Their, There and They're|
The English language can be confusing. Almost every grammar rule has
exceptions and many words sound alike but are spelled differently and
have different meanings. These words are called homophones and they
often trip up even native English speakers. Go back over your document
to check "their," "there" and "they're"
and be sure you have spelled each one correctly. There are a couple of
tricks you can use to keep the spellings

|How to Use a Waiter's Corkscrew Correctly|
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

|What's needed for this to work correctly?|
My current scenario is this:
1 cable modem + 1 wireless router in
2 wireless laptops that connect to the wireless router
throughout the house
1 wireless desktop that connects to the
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:
linksys wireless router, 2 ethernet cables, DHCP Turbo 3.0, and 2
gigabit ethernet ports in the back of the wireless desktop.

When I go to my laptop, running WinXP Pro, and select
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
fine. Any ideas?

|New SLI configuration and not sure if it's done correctly.|
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.
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
