    Should this computer be able to play 1080p?

    It has an Athlon64 X2 4400+ (2.3 GHz), 2 GB of ram and an ATI Radeon X1650 (pci-express). I've tried it under WinXP, and 32 and 64 flavored versions of Ubuntu and it always gets a bit choppy when there's alot going on. I'm using KMPlayer on all platforms, with CoreAVC codecs on WinXP.

    Bad news everyone: Ssangyong in trouble

    Source tl/dr: They can't pay their workers because they make ugly cars, and they've ran out of money. The SAIC won't give them money until the management resigns, which will probably happen, but hopefully it's too late and they don't have pretty cars in the oven.

The original soundtrack (with voices) is lowered ~15 dB and then you get the dubs on top of that with fairly soft limiting and a boost in the high midrange to...

    USB Mass Storage Trouble

    ...so my laptop (Acer Aspire 3020) is acting... unpredictably whenever I insert a USB Mass Storage device in its USB port. Sometimes it works, sometimes it says "Cannot recognize USB, GFY. And oh, by the way, here's a driver for unknown devices that does nothing and only gets in your way" which...

    What the hell IS this car?
