    Looking for Waterman Phileas

    As the title says, I'm looking for a source for a Waterman Phileas. Preferably in the gift box with several cartridges, the blotter papers, bottle of ink, and converter. My only caveat is that I'd love to get a fine nib, while the "package" set I describe comes with medium. I found an e-tailer...

    What Do People Really Think of Physicians?

    Depends on the individual, I guess. Almost every pre-med I've met during my undergraduate tenure--with one exception--is number 1. One of my friends jokingly (but truthfully) says he pursues the "divine mandate" (MD) to obtaion "cash-money-hos." Conversely, I saw a lot of Doctors at the Mayo...

    Firewire for iPod?

    You're confused, I think . I wanted an iPod. I only have USB 1 and one firewire port on my computer. I initially asked if the 5G supported Firewire. When I was told no, I began looking for alternatives. At the time, I had no idea that I could get Cardbus cards that would give me USB 2.0...

    Firewire for iPod?

    Thanks for the help folks, I'll pick one up. My only concern is getting a good card. Almost all of them on New Egg have comments about them breaking, but I'd like to think this is because users with a good experience were disinclined to comment.

    PCMCIA USB 2.0 Cards

    Quote: Originally Posted by lini Well, first of all: Don't get confused. It got all a bit complicated, since the PCMCIA cards have been renamed to PC Cards (with PCMCIA remaining the name for the organisation). Generally those PCMCIA/PC Cards come in three flavours: (old) 5 V 16 bit...

    Firewire for iPod?

    See one above your post for specs on the card (in the edit). Based on the reading I've done it should be fine. TI's site makes it sound like it'll support type i-iii, and that its a 32-bit card.

    PCMCIA USB 2.0 Cards

    Alright--to make a long story short, I'm looking to get an iPod, and it looks like for the price of a 4Gen + the extra firewire cable I may as well just get the 5G and a PCMCIA USB 2.0 card. This is predicated on my laptop having a PCMCIA card--its got a cardbus card, and while a combination of...

    Firewire for iPod?

    So now that I'm back home with my laptop, I have some kind of a slot, as I thought. I have no clue what it is though, and don't have my CPU's manual handy. Anyone know the computer well enough to comment?
