    Isotretinoin (trade name: Accutane) is a powerful drug used in the treatment of acne. Four to five months of isotretinoin treatment usually leads to clearing of acne for one year or more after the medicine is stopped. Most other acne-controlling medicines are antibacterial agents, which are effective only if the medicine is used daily. Isotretinoin decreases the amount of oil produced by the skin's sebaceous (oil) glands. It may be as long as two months before you see improvement in your skin. There's no medicine we can add to speed up isotretinoin's action. In fact, sometimes acne gets worse during the first month or so of treatment. Side effects, such as lip dryness, begin before the acne starts to clear. I think Accutane is great when it comes to acne. It says that it will cure acne for up to a few years and only 1 out of 10 people say their acne has come back after using Accutane. Read more about Accutane, here.
  2. Norton's AntiVirus is known for slowly down the PC clock (on Win9x - WinXP). If you have that installed, it may be your problem. Other than that, I'm not familiar with any other software that would slow down the PC clock.

    I read in Newsweek a few months back that it tested a 10Ghz processor chip and it was successful. To me, I don't think AMD will be able to compete with Intel for much longer. What does everyone think?

    Need help?

    aman, I assume you'll be taking a programming course in school. What languages are you taking?
  5. The only real advantage may be VB's file I/O... That's all I can think of, nothing else really.
  6. Fine, I'll just go commit suicide... I never get anything right
  7. Here, a new poll....go ahead...vote!!
  8. Ok guys, there...I edited the poll so you could choose your favorite operating system. I listed all that I could think of/come up with. Go here for the new poll.
  9. I have much respect for the Unix and Linux operating systems. Except, for the fact I have 0 use for either one of them. I program VCL Delphi and Visual Basic applications. Now, if I worried about the CLX Delphi applications, then I would have a use for Linux. I refuse to think anything is better than Windows XP (I love the latest products that Microsoft is putting out) though, maybe the Windows .NET will be, who knows
  10. If you're having trouble with VB, C++, Delphi, Java, even ASM; don't be afraid to post your question. Nearly everyone that visits these forums is more than willing to help. Have a good day
  11. It doesn't really matter, but I'm learning C++. I'm not going to learn C, then learn C++...it's a waste of time.
  12. A natural chemical, known as PYY3-36, is normally released by the gut after eating in proportion to the amount of calories consumed. It sends signals to the feeding circuits in the brain that convey a sense of satiety that reduces the urge to eat. Full Story: here. Why do I keep posting about obesity? Well, considering half of America is overweight, I guess it's a "hot" topic. Plus, I always appreciate something new coming out of science.
  13. The Beagle 2, named after Charles Darwin's sea ship HMS Beagle, will hitch a ride with the Mars Express, a European Space Agency craft that will orbit the red planet. "We hope that when it arrives on Mars at the end of next year, we will finally be able to answer the eternal question: Is there, or was there, life on Mars." said Colin Pillinger, a British scientist involved in the Beagle 2 mission: Read the about the Mars lander, here. To me, this is pretty exciting. People have been trying to create a working Mars lander for over 30 years. Hopefully someone can do something right this time, but if you read down the article, it says NASA plans to be doing the same thing. Well, whatever works, the best to the both of them.
  14. Visual Basic is a lot like Delphi, except for the syntax is different. Other than, it's all pretty much the same. You can download a trial version of Delphi, at www.borland.com. Lets look at a few examples... Comments are the easiest thing in the world to accomplish. Visual Basic: ' Your comment goes here. Delphi: // Your comment goes here. That's not hard to follow, moving on. When declaring a varible in VB, you use the Dim statement, followed by the variable name, and then the data type. Visual Basic: Dim intVar As Integer, strVar As String Delphi: var intVar: Integer, strVar: String; Simple enough, right? Notice the semi-colon, it indicates that the code on that line is finished. If you ever get a semi-colon error, look at the error line and the previous line to check for a semi-colon at the end. Setting values, another easy task... Visual Basic: intVar = 255 strVar = "Text" Delphi: intVar:= 255; strVar:= 'Text'; On to the last example (for now), If/Then Statements. Visual Basic: If intVar = 255 Then ' Do This ' And do this End If Delphi: if intVar = 255 then begin // Do this // And do this end; That's about all I feel like typing at the moment, I'll try to post more a little later.
