Our rant about those $7,250 Pear Anjou speaker cables found its way to the James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF), and Randi offered $1 million to anyone who can prove those cables are any better than ordinary (and also overpriced) Monster Cables.

hmm... if only i had a better speaker setup and the proper equipment to measure... although you could get everything you needed for well under 1mil and then have a sweet stereo and lots left over when everything was said and done...

Go James Randi! He's the trained magician who goes around debunking psychics,hoaxers, and bad science. So far, no one has every won any of the prizes in a double-blind controlled experiment.

To answer most of your questions: (1) a fridge cannot cool a PC (2) 64-bit OS for over 3.4GB (3) If a PCIe card fits, it should work (4) Resolution, not screen size (5) Report, not respond to Spam (6) Single-Rail/Non-Modular PSUs are not always better than Multi-Rail/Modular (7) Sequential does not matter as much as random for OS drives (8) Requirements come before hardware for servers

Are you kidding? That's a given. Soloz can win the million while he feeds his puppy some puppy chow, write a review for an amp, watch tv, cook with headphones on and save Superman from a psycho madman that shoots kryptonite chickens from a compressed air powered bazooka on all before you can find the stray itch on your back.
