I'm trying to decide on my next (and possibly final) batch of PSP games. When I select all the games I decided on, it says 7.17 GB. But if I add up the filesizes of each game, it's 7520 MB. Seeing as my mem stick fits 7.4GB, that's the different between having to cut a game or not. I'm guessing my PC is not really lying to me, and that the 7.17 is correct and I won't have to cut anything, but I don't know why this is so. Can someone shed some light on this Husky Wing

Husky Wing ... unless I had that backwards. I'm pretty sure this was the case for The Elder Scrolls Online, and at least a couple Steam games I've checked in the past.

rockshard PhD I think that if you download a PSN game you need extra space for the installation. But I'm talking about ISOs so there is no installation. I'm just dragging and dropping. Anyway, out of the games I'm deciding on, the least important game for me is a tie between Ultimate Ghosts N Goblins and Super Monkey Ball Adventure. I wasn't originally going to put in either game, but I ended up replacing a 1610 MB game with a 774 MB game, so I had a lot of free space all of a sudden and I couldn't decide between those two games.

rockshard PhD It makes no sense. 1024 x 7.17 is 7342, that's still less than what I get when I add the games up individually. Hey if it really means I have room for everything that's great, no reason to complain right?

I can text from my PC using Pulse app, but to sign up I have to pay.

99 cents a month
5.99 a year
or 10.99 lifetime which seems like a pretty good deal

Also I have 6.81 in my Google wallet. I have no idea what I'd use it for so maybe I should just grab the 1 year.

When it asks me to specify the printer's TCP/IP address, there are two fields: address, and hostname. Anything I type in the address field gets copied to hostname. So as I type 192.168.1.105 the numbers get copied in the other field so I don't have to type it twice. But something odd happens. As soon as I add the last 5, the hostname gets changed to 192.168.1.105_2. When I correct it and click continue, after a few seconds of searching for the printer I get a message saying that a port with that name already exists and I have to change it.

I don't know whats up with that. It does not happen if I choose 192.168.1.106. Could this be a clue as to why the printer isn't being recognized?

rockshard PhD No, that's probably not it at all.

rockshard PhD I have to reckon the most likely explanation is that there's a router or splitter connecting the printer to the wifi, and either it isn't powered on or it just needs a quick reboot.

The printer isn't working. That's just great. As if I didn't have enough crap to deal with.

Technically it can still printed, but it doesn't seem to be connected to wifi. It has an IP address but doesn't have a host name. I'm not sure what the problem is.
I tried restarting the wifi but that didn't work. I also tried starting all over by adding a new printer from scratch but that doesn't seem to work either. I download some HP software and punch in the printer's IP address but it's not detected. Anyone have any ideas as to what this means?

I recently bought a Brother wireless printer and I have to say that it's really nice being able to print from my laptop while sitting outside on the front

Demi Axersia Yeah, connect it by cable.

rockshard PhD Maybe it's not plugged in to the network and that's why it doesn't have a hostname.

I have a social security hearing coming up in September. But I don't want to go. In fact I'm wondering if I should fight this somehow. I could do something like send in the form saying I'll show up but not show up, or send in the form without filling anything out. Though what I could also do is simply check in the box saying I can't make it, or ignore the form altogether which would be the most convenient option.

At first I was ashamed of myself for not wanting to go and feeling like I'm lazy. (possibly due to my disciplinarian brainwashing) But I've started to realize that maybe I'm not wrong. This is essentially a form of terrorism. They're holding my social security hostage and forcing me to beg for it, literally. And why would you schedule this three months in advance. If someone can wait three months for something then they probably don't need it anymore, dontcha think? I don't even know what I stand to gain, which makes this all the more awkward. What I *do* know is that this is ruining me, and that I shouldn't have to put up with that. Not anymore.

I am posting this here just so if I do act, I don't feel like I'm acting alone on my crazy whims, but something that has been at least somewhat thought out, discussed.
