Rebuilding an engine...having a machine shop put the cam bearings in and put new pistons on the old rods. 1. broke one of the old pistons, still usable condition. 2. scuffed & scratced the cam bearings (not supposed to be). 3. Threw the box away (wanted it) Then throws a fit (actually went nuts when we wanted something done about it, ready to fight, lied, etc.). So now have to buy new bearings and get them put in. Words don't describe it. >:( I've done all the other work, and we thought that would be best done by a shop. Heck I could have broke the pistons off and scratched the bearings myself.

Anyone have any experience's with "Back Clinics"? I am going to start treatments soon and was hoping someone could relate their experience's, be they positive or negative, so I'll know more about what to expect. This is supposed to be the most successful clinic in Canada. It has been featured on a number of investigative news programs, so far it has proven to be a legitimate place, so I'm not worried about this being a fraudulent scheme in any way,I'm just curious of any results other than the reports of success that you find in the waiting rooms.

I went to a barbecue yesterday and I have a few pics and I got My souvenir too(see the PC below, Sorry no pic of It yet).

Now I have an HP PC to look over and test and maybe cleanup, It has an ATi m7470n built in in this AMD 4200+ PC(Turns out It's an RV370 chip or an X300, So It's a dud for Boinc type work). It has a modem(56K, useless to Me) and a TV tuner card and thankfully both are pci based of course, They take up 2 of the 4 slots in the case, The remaining slots are another pci slot and a pci-e slot(I don't know if the HP Pavilion Media Center TV M7470n PC has a 16x pci-e 2.0 slot or a 1.0 16x slot as I can't tell the difference, So I don't know If a 295 or any 200 series card would run in It, Besides It has a hdd and two DVD drives, plus 2GB ram and a 300w psu to boot. My sister-in-law gave It to Me last night.


Kathy and Jaimes Frontyard(Kathy is My Sister-in-Law and Jaime is My Youngest Niece)

Kathy and Jaimes New Backyard, They'd have gravel instead of grass, But the Dogs like grass and It's easier to clean poop up off of instead of gravel. The fences are of course white vinyl, So no paint and are warranted for 30 years I was told. On the Right is Fran(She has Cancer and It's not curable and is slowly spreading), Jaime and Kurt(Lindas Husband, Linda is Kathys sister).

Camile on the Sofa taking a nap, Jaime and Becky and a Baby whose name I don't know(the Baby is not anyones in the Picture, The baby is visiting with Her Grandparents who are taking care of Her for the moment).

Jaime(Right) and Camile 16(Left)

I don't want to get techy in a non techy thread, but I don't think you will be running any up-market 200 series cards with a 300W PSU. Upgrade to 500W then maybe. Just been through that loop so pm me and I'll see if I can help.
