A friend needs advice picking a college major. Here is a message he sent me:
I'm still having trouble decide on what to major in. Either math or information technology. I want to learn all about cryptography and the math behind the algorithms. However, I don't want to double major. I dont think I can create a new special major just for myself...

PC Custom Builds and Overclocking
R.I.P to an old friend Hi there
Seems like the end of the road for a site - against Forum rules to name it explicitly but I KNOW many people used it when W7 builds were "Leaked" into the wild.
Seems like their server is "Perpetually Busy" -- that's the message it sends out -- "Server Too Busy".
Help my friend. Okay, So my friend is having issues with his taskbar....He is using vista but I tried to sort it using team viewer but that did not work.
Please help him. Picture below xD
