I was going 48 in a 30. Was a total speed trap too. They had about 10 cop cars lined up ready to go.

I wasn't too mad about the speeding ticket, because I was speeding, but the stupid cop gave me another ticket because I hadn't updated my info with the DMV.

That is lame with the second ticket. Can that ticket be written off once you update your info, or do they just fine you for that?

They've done that out here a couple of times too :( We also have photo and red light so I try to be a good boy these days.
I have never gotten a ticket yet, been pulled over 3 times, once for DUI and he let me go home :) I dont drink and drive anymore either :oops:
Ya gotta tell them the truth if they ask and treat em with a bit of respect, it does help.
The local geek shop here has 512 DDR 333 memory for 70 yesterday.
http://www.enuinc.com I don't know if they ship or not, probably be the same price as your link with shipping. Looks like meory is dropping again, guess the price gouging slowed down sales again.

Sorry to hear that Ian..

I was thinking the speed limit was for the CD-RW or RAM, LOL.

FYI I live in Cali, and got a speeding tickect late last year. I did an online course and got away with no ticket on my record 8)

I hate driving these days because the cops set up speed traps near my house :evil:

Not that I speed, but if you're not careful you can easily punch your car over the 25 MPH limit.

It's just a fine but I'm taking it to court. Like most people in this college town, I've moved 3x in the last 18 months. Updating my DMV info is the last thing on my mind, and I really didn't think I could get fined for it. I called in and updated it 5 minutes after I got into work. Hopefully they'll see that and drop it altogether.

Those cops were there just to make money anyway. They probably would have given me a ticket for anything they could have. btw.. the police lady was very nice. I couldn't be mean to her if I tried. I knew I was speeding. There wasn't anything to argue about.

Did anyone buy this ram, the price keeps falling, currently it is $67.50. Was wondering how it overclocks.

I think KIngston RAM is so-so for overclocking. The best RAM for overclocking has to be made by Samsung.

Thanks for the quick response Buddha TB. If anyone is interested in this ram, there is a long thread on Anand's Hot Deals forum regarding this deal. Seems some of the early buyers were getting Samsung chips, most of the recent buyers are getting Infineon or generic Kingston labeled chips. Also I saw today newegg is selling the same ram for a few dollars more with shipping. If I was sure I was getting Samsung chips (that's what I currently have 2 x 256mb Samsung which can do over 400 by themselves but used together can only do 387) I would be really tempted.

You can get assured Samsung chips from a host of merchants for cheap, just look on http://www.pricewatch.com . I do recommend checking a merchant's rating at http://www.resellerratings.com before buying.

TheWizard yep! I love Newegg.com! I think they are the best. Yes sometimes a little expersive but their shipping for a lot of things is free! Even some cases!
Any help appreicated

Thanks
