Hello,

I have a question and I unable to find the remaining two answer.

"What three fixes or updates does the Flash BIOS update for a Dell Precision 690 computer provide?"

I went to dell.com and they only provided me with one answer which is: "Improve OS licensing handling."

If anyone knows about this Dell Precision 690 computer and could give me the other two answers, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you. :)
Gao Shun & Cheng Lian, you have my prayers!

Hi guys just a quick visit; I need some essay help...

Basically I'm doing a module this term called 'Chinese Religion' and I've got to do an essay on the role of Tai Chi in Daoism. I don't suppose anyone could recommend me any good books, websites or personal knowledge on the topic? This is something I know nothing about so I have no idea where to start...

My calculus teacher has given an optional extra credit assignment that is just puzzling me. We are to find a famous mathematician for each letter of the alphabet who contributed to the field of mathematics. We must write a paragraph about each and post a picture of them (or along those lines, like a pic of a statue... exc). And I have no clue how to even begin to approach this task. I kinda need the extra credit to raise my grade. Any ideas?

I suggest you start off with the mathematical topics that you're interested in and pick out those who made prominent contributions to it. After that, you'll probably have to go through Wikipedia to pick out the ones that you recognise or those whose work you can adequately explain.

This site might be interesting. It's alphabetical and it's just a list of names...you could do searches for the names you like most and see what they're all about for your paragraph and picture.

Dude, that's brutal. Here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_mathematicians_(A)

Use the table and go down the line. Try to use the older guys-they're probably more important. But rscha's list seems better-use this one in a pinch.
I don't write fanfic, but if I did it would involve Zhou Yu and Zheng He fighting to win the heart of Lai Choi San. Then I'd make them join forces to fight Ming the Merciless, who secretly works for Master Li. I'd squeeze Lu Bu in there somehow.
