Well Butterfly, I am known as the forum Luddite.

They extended the death penalty to include "frame breakers". Watch it Clive  ;)

Hiya,
After much contemplation :snooze: and a little research I have come to the conclusion that I would also have been a Ludditess :mg: those poor people :'(  I found this on my research trip and thought I could share it with you

The Tintwistle Weavers Daughter

There was a weavers daughter born
When loaves were big and cheap
Work was forbid on a Monday
Tho work enough for keep

His daughter grew pretty and fine
On meat and bread he'd bring
And bloomed the human face divine
Her light sweet voice would sing

But your debts and taxes want pay'd
Coined of the poor and dead
Your Orders and council kill trade
And weavers cry for bread

So bent the daughter to her fate
From work she did not cower
She beam'd the yarn from Manchester
And dress'd the warp with flour

She beams the yarn from Manchester
And dresses warp with flour
The shuttle flies from morn til night
And rests at a late hour

From morn til night she cannot cease
Her life is nowt but toil
She has not time for love or sport
Her blooming flowers spoil

Still your debts and taxes want pay'd
Coined of the poor and dead
Your Orders and French wars hurt trade
And weavers cry out for bread

She bends no more to her poor lot
A life of nowt but toil
Enriching the mighty and great
While her own flowers spoil

She cries aloud her hero's name
Her Sherwood hero Ludd
Will set a stop to wars and steam
And wages as they stood

  :'(

 :rock: Luddites (but don't kill anyone please)

back to 'puter prob in next post

Hiya,

Okay 'puter prob......the following is part an e-mail to me from a friend of a friend :sanity:

"Internal USB ports are powered by the computers own internal power supply.  This means that USB ports have a total output of 500mA (milliAmps in case you're wondering lol)  Sadly, most broadband external modems which plug into the USB port take near enough (if not more) the full 500mA, which leaves no room to power anything else.   Broadband modems are not usually self powered.  That is, they are not powered from it's own power supply via a transformer"

Okay.......I checked my modem....it has 3 power cables leading from it....one from the wall to modem (big white cable that screws into back of modem from Cable company)......one from modem to USB port....and one from modem to power supply  :wtf:.....i take it this means that the modem has it's own power supply?  If so.........what the hell do I do now? Do I still buy the self powered serial USB hub? :wahh:

Yes Butterfly, a powered hub is usually more reliable for heavier power usage devices.
As you said the modem is self powered but there may be a power supply problem at your USB ports so a powered hub would eliminate that.
I think that your friend is incorrect when he states "This means that USB ports have a total output of 500mA", as each port should be able to supply 500 mA.
Some of the newer motherboards have 6 usb ports as standard plus pins to add another 2 or 4 at the front of the case, so unless you were using low current devices such as a mouse or webcam then you would soon run out of available power if it was as your friend thinks  :)
