Focus on a character or theme and relate it to how we see the influence of The Iliad in today’s news, politics, film, television, advertising, sports, fashion, comic books, or other areas not listed. Use at least two examples. Identify the features that relate to The Iliad and discuss how effective your example/s is/are in raising some of the same issues found in Homer’s Iliad

Can you help me find a website that posts advertising circulars (sales circulars) for many different stores?

Question by Christmas Fan: Can you help me find a website that posts advertising circulars (sales circulars) for many different stores?
During the Christmas season, I heard about this website on the news but cannot recall the web address. I thought that many of the ppl who visit the Christmas section know a thing or two about sales and shopping. Thanks.

Most stores have their weekly ad online, like target for example http://weeklyad.target.com/target/default.aspx?action=entryflash&ref=nav_weeklyad

But there is a place that has the deals from everywhere, not their entire ads: http://slickdeals.net/

Usenet Newsgroup downloads HELP?

Question by Sammy: Usenet Newsgroup downloads HELP?
Ok, i downloaded an XBOX 360 game from usenet. When it was done downloading im missing some files. I used QuickPAR to fix them, but it couldnt get the missing files. How can i recover those missing files without redownloading the whole thing? Its only like 6 files and I guess i didnt get the PAR files for them either.

Answer by etheesdad™
sometimes newsgroups don’t have all the parts. check the headers and count them to make sure they are all present. if any headers are missing or do not have the encoded parts included, you won’t be able to assemble the file.

you need to make sure all the parts are there _before_ you download!

There are binary applications available that do all this work for you. smbaker has put out some good ones and has been building them for many years…

Doning an advertising reveiw and need help answering these three questions?

Question by Japer787: Doning an advertising reveiw and need help answering these three questions?
1-This type of PR program deals with anticipating the possibility of a disaster and how to deal with bad news?

2-This type of posttest has respondents report what advertisements they remember seeing (without assistance) as opposed to a recognition test, which shows respondents ads, then asks if they remember them?

3-The point where advertising gets tired and there is no response, or less response than at the beginning of the campaign?

Best answer:

Answer by wineboy
You do realize that if academics knew a single thing about advertising or marketing they’d get jobs in it and make about 10x what they make “teaching” their uninformed nonsense, don’t you?

I’ve worked in advertising since the 80s and I can barely understand the freaking questions.

The first question is just inane. No PR company (and especially no client) is going to spend money coming up with a plan for something that “might” happen. There are specific methods for getting in front of bad news, so spending the time and money and effort of people to get ahead of speculative “what if” scenarios when there is real work to be done every day is something only a self-impressed academic could possibly think happens.

Post-test? Post what? Oh, you mean after the ads have run? I suppose your beard twit means “unaided awareness.”

This one, I suppose your bearded twit may mean wear out.

By the way, don’t listen to anything this clown has to say. Seriously, he knows less than nothing….

Starting gaming news / forum site, need help advertising?

Question by Chris: Starting gaming news / forum site, need help advertising?
Hey all, a group of friends and I are starting a gaming news / info site with forums to start up a gaming community revolved around RPG games like WoW, Starcraft 2, Diablo 3, and other games.
We are just starting up now, but are looking to expand and getting a legit site with a lot of members.

Can anyone help me with ideas for advertising the site. I am not trying to advertise it here, just explaining what it is all about. So if anyone can think of some ideas for advertising let me know, thanks.

Best answer:

Answer by AllmightyBanjo
I don’t know about the larger sites but smaller gaming hubs usually have (or had?) something like a banner/link exchange program – means they post a link to your site and in return you link to them.

Computer keeps freezing – please read – need help!!?

Question by Sawyer: Computer keeps freezing – please read – need help!!?
I have a 2 year old computer (HP Pavilion Dv7-1240us), with no more warranty on it. Lately I have been having all sorts of ridiculous issues with it freezing and with video files becoming corrupt.

I’ll save the video issues for another time, though, because my main problem at this time is the freezing.

PLEASE READ before posting answers:

In the past 24 hours or so I have:

Done 4 virus-scans
Cleaned my registry twice using Advanced System Operator
Defragmented my computer 4 times (2x with ASO and 2x with system tools)

I have Norton 360 computer and Internet safety on my computer and have not had any issues with viruses. Anything norton has missed, ASO has taken care of.

I will be on the internet (i use Mozilla Firefox) and all of a sudden my cursor will turn into a spinning circle for up to 5 minutes (if i click on anything, it says (not responding)), and eventually will freeze entirly (no cursor movement, no anything) which results in me needing a restart.

I have similar issues with watching video files on my computer. I use VLC media player and lately, the videos have trouble even starting, and when they get going the video will freeze at some random point and not work at all. This requires a complete kill of VLC from Task Manager.

The most annoying thing is definitely the freezing and having to restart…please help!!. The only thing I can think of is that i have a loose hard drive or something, which i don’t even know how to fix in a laptop.

========================================================================

If anyone is interested in helping with the video file issue: I use usenet to download all of my favorite tv shows etc since I live overseas and don’t have any means of getting them otherwise. I have a giganews subscription and for the first 6 months used the GrabIt downloading software.

I have a 42″ HDTV with a PS3 hooked up to it and i transfer all of my tv shows onto a WD 1TB external hard drive and play them on the TV through my PS3.

About three weeks ago, everything i was downloading started to screw up. About 10 minutes into a show (using my PS3), the video would lose sound and then 10 seconds later the screen would go black. Then it would go back to the video tree and say Corrupted Data.

I would then plug my laptop into the HDMI cable and play it from VLC, the video files would work for about 10 minutes then get choppy, freezing for a few seconds and then playing again.
This part leads me to believe that my PS3 and external hard drive are not the issue, but i’m still not positive.

I tried switching my download client from Grabit to SABnzbd which seems to have help, but only a fraction (there are less pauses and freezes then with grabit, but the files are still corrupt).

I have heard of ISPs throttling bandwidth (not an issue, i have 980 KB/s on average) but i have never heard of an ISP sending internet freeze surges that might corrupt data. A crazy idea, i know, but i’m at a loss for what to do.

This whole thing is driving me nuts. I suppose giganews could be the issue but they just offer access as far as i know, so i really dont think switching providers would make a difference.

========================================================================

Anyway, somebody, anybody, please help me out. PLEASE!

Best answer:

Answer by David Perry-sr.
If your issues are video related it could be not having enough memory or the Video drivers need to be re-installed or updated. If you are using a wireless router, move it around until you get the best signal and make sure no other electronic device is closer than 3 feet from it. How many different things do you have booting up at the same time the computer does or running in the background that you don’t need running.
