About me

Picture

Hello, I'm theymos (Michael). I specialize in computer questions. I will usually not answer other types of questions.Over 2000 questions answered, for great justice. I am very experienced with Windows XP and Vista, I know enough about Linux to use it well, and I've never used a Mac in my life.

While I am not nearly as active on Advicenators as I once was, feel free to send me private questions or links to interesting public questions.

I currently dual-boot XP and Vista. I use Vista primarily, with XP for games. If your problem is particularly interesting, I am able to boot into XP or even install an operating system on a spare computer.

Feel free to contact me by IM (at right) rather than or in addition to asking me questions on Advicenators. With that method, I am able to better diagnose your problem, and I can also use a special tool to take control of your computer and fix the problem for you.

My computer is nearly always on, so be aware that when my IM status is "away", it could mean "away for 10+ hours".

Question:
"There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so." - from Hamlet , Wm. Shakespeare; Act II, scene ii

do you agree or disagree? its very debatable.
theymos's answer:
That view is called relativism, and I strongly agree with it. There is no absolute good or bad, just the facts and how we choose to deal with them.

Question:
Okay, I have a couple questions:
1. What's the main difference between how the movies are drawn in cartoon movies and anime movies? Like they look different, but how? I just can't put my finger on it?
2. As much as I am super mainstream, I loved the movies "Spirited Away" and especially "Howl's Moving Castle". I really loved the latter. Could anyone recommend any movies like that one?

Thanks in advance.
(P.S. Sorry if this in the wrong category. I didn't know what to put it in.)
theymos's answer:
In cartoons the lines are thicker and the colors are brighter. Cartoons are drawn to be simplistic, Anime is drawn to me somewhat realistic.

I don't have an answer to your other question, but I use this site to find movies I like:

Question:
Some of the music in iTunes sounds kindof..flat..Listen to a song on itunes, and then listen to the same song on myspace...the one on myspace is better.

Is there anyway I can make the music sound better?



Thanks.
theymos's answer:
Well done at noticing the quality difference, most people don't pick it up.

Most songs on itunes are in 128kbps constant, which is very low quality. Songs on limewire and myspace are usually in 256kbps constant or variable (variable is better). You can buy music in 256kbps variable at these sites:
http://mp3sparks.com/ (very cheap!)
http://tinyurl.com/39voq4

Be aware that the quality on CDs are perfect, better even than 256kbps variable. You can usually buy CDs cheaper than their online counterparts, too.

Question:
is vanessa hgens fired and replaced for high school musical 3?
theymos's answer:
No. What she does on her time is her business, Disney has no reason to fire her.

Question:
What era is the movies like Sense and Sensibility or Pride and Prejudice supposed to be from? Is it the 16th century?
theymos's answer:
They are in the 1800s, but that would be the 19th century. Centuries are one more than you'd think because year 0 was in the first century, 100 was in second century, etc.

Question:
15/f.

My friend and I are watching Moulin Rouge and he said he was thinking of Satine and he was like "I wonder if she's thinking of me too," do guys actually think that?

i'd prefer answers from guys guys but I'll appreciate any answer:]

thanks in advance
theymos's answer:
They say it, and some part of them believes it, but they don't mean it. They don't actually think that.

Question:
I really love short animation and I cant seem to find DVD s anywhere. Asking question on Advicenators is not my easy way (spoon feed me) but my last chance. I got this videos of General Chaos uncensored animation and love them. I ve also seen various every now and then for instance Le Cyclops de la mer and many others.
Where can I find more DVDs and order them? Or maybe even downloaded them online.
theymos's answer:
Well newgrounds.com has short flash animations. Most aren't near the quality of ones on DVD, but they're alright. Go to collections at newgrounds, and it'll be just like DVD except poorer quality. Maybe you'll find something if you go to

it's a list of the most recent anime torrents on btjunkie.

Question:
Our drama teacher just switched our musical on us from Anything Goes to Merrily We Roll Along. Because of their almost complete polarity, I now need a different song. I'm alto-second-soprano-ish. I don't know my exact range which I know makes this more difficult. My teacher suggested another ballad by Stephen Sondheim. So. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
theymos's answer:
-go to this site:
http://www.musicaltheatreaudition.com/smdb/
-Pick your gender, type of song, and vocal range ONLY, leave everything else blank and click submit query(if you get no results, remove type of song)
-pick some random song, ones with multiple words are best, but dont click it
-copy the name of the song and go to google.com, search for it, but but it in quotes("song"), and find the lyrics
-go to audio.alltheweb.com and search for the song, again in quotes, to find an audio recording.

Question:
Well im trying out for the play brigadoon and there was a tryout today and i had nothing to sing so i sang mary had a little lamb, well i thought i needed somthing better after today so theres one more auditon tomarrow and if anyone could please recommend songs that'd be great.
theymos's answer:
They're looking for 3 things:
-how well you sing
-how you react under pressure
-and, to a lesser extent, your originality

-Ok, so go to this site:
http://www.musicaltheatreaudition.com/smdb/
-Pick your gender and vocal range ONLY, leave everything else blank and click submit query
-pick some random song, ones with multiple words are best, but dont click it
-copy the name of the song and go to google.com, search for it, but but it in quotes("song"), and find the lyrics
-go to audio.alltheweb.com and search for the song, again in quotes, to find an audio recording.
If you use one of the songs on that site and sing it correctly, I'm sure they'll be impressed.
