  • Question about this shy girl in my class?

    I have been interested in this shy girl for quite some time now. In school, when she first found out that I liked her, she smiled, but recently she has not been smiling at me too much. However, in class, my teacher put her next to me. She was extremely red and only said very little when I tried to talk to her. In the halls, I can catch her eye looking at me, but she doesn't smile at me like when she first found out I liked her. Sometimes, she tries to avoid eye contact and turns all red once in a while. I too am shy, so I don't know if my shyness caused her to be even more shy. But my question is this: are these body language acts clues that she may like me back? Also, how can I talk to her when she is shy and I am shy? I have not really made contact with her for two weeks since the day she found out, but she still looks at me a lot, but no smiles. Is she just being overly shy?

  • Xbox 360 Controller Problem?

    When I play games, my controller keeps disconnecting. I have three controllers that I have had for about a few months and two of them all of a sudden kept disconnecting. This has never happened to these controllers until just this week when it just kept disconnecting. Is this just an interference from another device or is there something really wrong with them? How can I fix this problem if my third controller also goes down? Then I will have no more controllers. :( Please help! Thanks in advance!

  • iTunes Authorization question?

    When I play purchased songs, iTunes asks me for authorization. I put in the authorization details and there is a message that says "Machine Authorization Successful" Then it says I have 4 authorizations out of 5. However, it won't play the song and when I click on the song, I get the same old authorization box that pops up as if iTunes doesn't even remember than I authorized it. Then I entered my details and got the same message. How do I do this? Am I authorizing correcly?

  • Genetically Modified Food help for a project

    So, I am doing a project for high school about genetically modified food. I need to find statistics so I can make graphs. Does anyone have any links where I can find some statistics? I cannot find anything on the internet and I am wondering if anyone can help me? I need to find maybe what types of organisms are genetically modified and how many each year. Also, maybe a percentage of the average amount of GM food humans eat. Another is information about different companies that produce genetically modified food. Please help! Also, if you find any graphs or charts about GM food on the web, please tell me the links so I can study them. Thanks!!!

  • Xbox 360 warrenty?

    Did you have to buy the xbox from microsoft in order to have the warrentey or is it applied to all the xbox's? Also, did you have to fill out a card, because if so, I don't think I filled it out. I got the three red rings today and I want to know if my warrenty covers it. Is the warrenty automatically applied or is there some special thing you needed to do when you first got 360 in order for it to be applied? Also, if I don't have a warrenty, what should I do? I don't want to buy a brand new console for 500$

  • Question about cancelling Xbox LIVE?

    Well summer is approaching a close for me and I bought a monthly Xbox LIVE not knowing that it would renew itself every month. So, when my school starts, I will rarely play on LIVE, so it wouldn't make sense to pay 8 dollars for a month not being used. How do I cancel the LIVE service? If I do cancel, will I be able to join again next summer when school is out again? Will my profile still be eligible and will all my information be kept?

  • Xbox 360 game question?

    I have Call of Duty 4. When I start it up, the 360 makes weird noises sort of like it is whipping the CD. This also happens at random spots in the game when I play. It freezes the game for several seconds and leaves some short deep scratches on the disc's edge. I have never had the red rings or moved the 360 with it playing inside and none of my other games do this, so I asked my friend. He said that my disc might be warped. Is playing a warped disc damaging for the 360? Because the entire game runs smoothly until I hear those weird noises. Even then, it only lasts a few seconds but leaves behind some scuff scratches on the outer edge of the disc.

  • Call of Duty problem on Xbox 360?

    When I play Call of Duty 4 on my 360, when I first insert it, as the game is loading up, I hear two huge whipping "clunk" sounds. The game loads up fine, but on occasion, in the single player mode, I hear the same sounds, both on mission briefing sections and in game play. The gameplay section I am on is not harmed, but the mission briefing sections freeze for 5 seconds after I hear the sounds. When I took it out to examine it, I saw that the 360 did scratch my disc, but it is not one of those circular rings. They are medium-deep 1/10th inch gashes on the outer edge of the disc. When I play something like Halo 3, nothing happens and my 360 is silent. I have also never had the red rings of death on my power button, so there shouldn't be any hardware failure. My warranty for the game is expired, but does anyone know anywhere I can exchange it for a new copy? Will a new copy do the same? I don't have money to keep chasing a new copy of Call of Duty. I need a free exchange or a small fee.

  • Xbox 360 game scratch question?

    If a scratch is so faint that it is only noticeable under a lot of light, are they too serious. Some of my 360 games are scratched, but they are unnoticeable unless I look really hard. Is it safe to play them, or are they going to get scratched more? That brings me to my next question, does the 360 scratch discs? I have never payed too much attention to it, but recently, the discs that come out of the 360 are scratched, but I have no idea if they were scratched before I put them in. When I get back to the dashboard, I hear a huge lurching clunk sound from inside the console, does this have something to do with it? I called Microsoft and they said that as long as I have never had the red rings, I am still okay. Is this true, because I have never had the red rings before?

  • Is Gears of War online too competitive?

    I was playing Gears online for the first time yesterday. I kept getting owned on all the servers I played on and I got booted off almost every server I played on because I sucked. These are only player matches. Then, I played a player match warzone and saw a downed enemy. There was no one there to kill him, so I decided to take the kill since no one was close by. To my surprise, I back away after the kill and got blasted by the shotgun of my own team member. He yelled at me for taking his kill and wouldn't stop killing me at the start of each match. It was just one kill lost on his score and he took it as if I trash talked him the entire round. I didn't even say anything the entire match because my mike was not even plugged in. How do I find more friendly servers and how do I get better? Do you think those people on the game are too competitive? I am beginning not to like Xbox LIVE since I get the "Oh, you suck big time" on every game I play. :( I payed money and I am not enjoying

  • backup xbox 360 games?

    I read online that you can get your 360 modded to be able to play backups of your games. Is there any way that you can play a backed up game without modding the console? If so, please provide a link and or tutorial explaining how. Thanks!

  • Claiming items on eBay after wins?

    When you win an item, do you need to claim it right away or can you wait. Sometimes, the auctions I participate in, end at night when I am fast asleep and I usually don't see them until the next morning. In case I win, do I need to claim it when it ends, or can I wait till morning?

    Hello, I am buying a laptop, and I want to know: someone told me before that the Intel Core 2 Duo Processor doubles the GHz it has. For example, I was told that a 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor would actually be 4.8 GHz in this processor all together. Is this true?

  • Dead Rising experts please?

    When I killed the helicopter in the park in overtime mode, I got captured by the special forces and got turned to a zombie on the helicopter. I know killing that helicopter unlocks the special forces uniform, but nothing said I unlocked it and when I checked the security room, it was not among the brown bags. I got ending D where he gets captured and is a prisoner of the special forces when he turns into a zombie, so I need an explanation of why I did not recieve the military uniform. Do I have to play the 72 hour mode and get an ending there before I can get it because I killed the helicopter in overtime and got an overtime specific ending but did not recieve the unlockable I was supposed to recieve. I beat overtime mode and got an achievement called Unbreakable which unlocks the Megaman boots. That unlocked after I beat overtime but the military uniform did not. Is this because the megaman boots have to be unlocked in overtime and cannot be unlocked in 72 hour mode? PLEASE HELP!!

  • HDTV and Xbox 360 question?

    Which resolution is better to play on a Xbox 360. 480p, 720p,or 1080i. I need to knoe what resolution would make say GEARS OF WAR look better. I am playing on 1080i since my TV can support it, but some textures and things are blurry. Is that because my TV is made for 720p but still can support 1080i. I need to know this. All answers are greatly appreciated along with maybe a informational website.
