Gracias. I am going to give it a try tonight.

Edited to Add:

Thanks Chris. It worked like a charm. I added Ram and reformatted the computer. Oddly enough, it runs faster and smoother than my current HP. This Gateway is about 7 or 8 years old.

Hey guys, I was hoping someone knew the answer to this question.

I recently replaced the DVD burner on an older Gateway computer I had stored in a closet.

If I reformat the hard drive using the factory CD-Roms, will it recognize the new burner?

By chance, has anyone had any luck in finding stands that work on either the Legends or the new 3 3/4" figures. I have a tough time displaying my Marvel figures because they constantly fall over.

Quick question as I am a total i-pod newb. I have never owned one but I am ready to take the plunge. As a first time i-pod buyer, is the Touch a good purchase for me? Also, I see that the median price for the 16gb Touch is $295. Should I buy now or is there a price break in the near future? Thanks to anyone who replies. I am pretty lost when it comes to this area.

I am not a regular poster here but I thought I would chime in. I think I would have to say I liked everything. I agree with all the negative points everyone above made. Still, it's Star Wars, and for whatever reason, I end up growing to enjoy everything (except Ahsoka in the CW film but that is another story, lol).

I remember vacationing in Seattle and catching AOTC on IMAX. If you recall, they had to trim down the running time because (at the time) IMAX could only show 2 hour movies. I immediately noticed the cuts and wanted them back. LOL, I am not sure if it wasn't a better movie w/out a lot of the "romance scenes" removed.

Brutal. Brutal. Brutal.

129 person tournament.

We are down to around 3 or 4 tables. I have around 5K in chips which is slightly higher than the average.

Little/Big blind special.

I had 7/5 off suit and flopped the nut straight. I bet and I am re-raised. I go all in and I am called. The caller has 5/2 off suit giving him a smaller straight.

BTW, it was a rainbow flop. He happened to have one heart. The next two cards? You guessed it. Running hearts giving him a flush.

I know the following doesn't make a lot of sense but it describes my play. I am a somewhat tight player that likes to see a lot of flops.

Someone made a straight on the river on the first hand and that cost me a third of my stack (I had trips). On the third hand I had pocket Queens. I was one of the last players to act in this hand. By the time it got to me the bet was already up to half my chips. I decided to go all in. Very much not my style. LOL, I got five callers!

Another player had pocket Aces and took the pot. Nothing like quintupling your stack by the third hand of a tourny.

Not the craziest story but I thought I would share.

Wow! I did not notice it was a straight flush. I thought it was just a straight. Very nice indeed! Queen/3 is my version of your 5/2. Although they can't connect, I seem to do pretty good with that hand.

That is definitely the smarter way to go. I think I was playing my read on him more than my cards. I read him correctly. The only better thing I could have done was go all in instead of betting the pot. That way I could win by having the best hand or by him folding. By calling, I could only win if I had the best hand. This particular player likes to bluff and hollywood a lot. My read was right but like you said, there were too many ways for me to lose. I think that is a bad habit I have. I am pretty good at reading my opponents - which is good but that gives me a false confidence. I was confident because I had him figured out not because my hand was that strong.

What would you have done?

I was at the final table of a tournament. I had pocket 4's. I called a small raise (twice the big blind). The flop was 10, 8, 4, all hearts. I did not have a heart. At this time I bet the pot. Everyone folds except for one guy who re-raises all in. I pretty much have this guy figured out. I put him on Ace high with one heart. I thought and thought and decided to call.

My read was pretty close. He had a King and the nine of hearts.

Of course the turn was a heart and he made his flush. The board did not pair so I did not improve to a boat on river.

My legs were pretty much chopped off and I was blinded out shortly after - out of the money!

Now we all pretty much know what the book says and "what I should have done" but everyone knows the same things these days. With so many players you can't always do "what the book says."

So in the situation above, not necessarily what should I have down, but what would you have done?
