    On a seperate matter: I need some help from somebody with a vague knowledge of computers (ie Camford) and am too lazy to start my own thread.

    I've been given a form by the college to fill in if I want my room connected to the net by the time I go up there, and they want to know my MAC location for my ethernet card... iirc it's a string of numbers seperated by colons. I'm sure that I /have/ an ethernet card, but have no clue how to find out this MAC thingumy. If anybody could give me a clue I'd be very grateful.

    I feel vaguely ashamed of my computer ignorance. I have all the outward trappings of geekdom but none of the geeky goodness within.

    if you're on windowsXP or windows 2000 (which you should be)...go to Start->Accessories->command prompt
    Then when that loads. Type: ipconfig /all
    hit Enter. And look for the MAC address on there! (It will be called the "Physical address"

    start> run > cmd

    then type in ipconfig /all

    the physical address that looks like xx-xx-xx-xx-xx is your MAC address.

    Thanks!
    I suggest we now go back and completely edit our posts to make this look like a normal conversation. That way I get to hide my ignorance and you two your knowledge of computers. :P

    Nono, not delete. Just edit.

    We could change it to something like this:

    Me: "And on a completely unrelated note, hello!"
    Willa: "Hello"
    You: "Hello"
    You: "And on a completely unrelated note, good morning."

    and so on.

    It's not hard and I should be able to do it, but the brain is on strike...
    well if anyone's bored...
    lnQ = lnk - lnP
    apparently according to the textbook,
    d(lnQ)/d(lnP) = -1
    but I keep getting 1. Bleurgh.

    Are Q, P functions of another variable and is k a constant?

    well Q is quantity and P is price, and k is a constant, nope Q and P arn't functions of anything else.

    d(lnQ)/d(lnP) = d(lnk)/d(lnP) - d(lnP)/d(lnP) = something - 1.

    I'm assuming that lnk is a constant, so there. -1.
