    Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

    What I hate is trying to shovel the damn snow off the car: It seems around here that every year alternates between a bad winter and a mild winter. When we get a mild winter, Buffalo gets hit bad, and when we get a bad winter, Buffalo gets off easy. ...This year is a bad year, so far. :tooth:

    N00b girl is hot.
  3. "they have mp4 players now?" (said as if under the impression that mp4 is a new version of mp3)

    What music are you listening to right now?

    Depends on my mood. Basically any of Iron Maiden's, Slayer's, Metallica's, or Megadeth's greatest hits.

    Another sleepless night

    You do data recovery? Do you deal with physical drive failures or just data?

    Commercials on your retail DVDs anyone?

    I'm a big-time capitalist, but please, someone shoot the bastards controlling the entertainment industry with an elephant gun before they get any more powerful. What happened to the days when movies and music were art forms? I swear we've got 1984 happening, only it's not the government taking away all our music and literature (movies are a moving form of literature by my definition), it's big record and entertainment companies restricting our access with completely insane regulations, fees, and all that other bull crap.

    Let's hope for the best...

    I'm sorry to hear that man. I wish I'd seen this thread sooner. Don't be too hard on yourself for not seeing her, though. From what you described, I'd say she's upstairs remembering the good times you had together. I'm not really sure what else to say. When my mother died, I was with her right up until she went into hospice (she was only there for two weeks), but we weren't on the best of terms. We were on good terms, but the reality was I hadn't made my peace with her. For years afterward, all I could think about when I thought of her was everything I hated her for, and that I couldn't tell her anymore to get it off of my chest. I tried to grieve when she died but I couldn't. Eventually I made peace with myself.

    What do you want for Christmas?

    Damn, I didn't know she was sick. Good luck with that, our prayers are with you.

    (NEW) DIY-street.com Storefront Discusion thread

    I don't know, I think my HP was a better deal than anything I could put together from Dell. Dell is probably better if you can afford it, though.
  12. Alcohol is one thing, I just wish I could go to bars without the bouncers giving me sh!t. I'd be out three nights a week, probably trying to get away with touching girls' chests like Fogel. :tooth:

    They probably didn't have the bucks to get Arnold or Stallone to model it. :tooth:
  15. Case in point, the Atkins' Diet.
  16. Yeah, I think it's the antioxidants in the grapes that are what's good for you.

    What do you want for Christmas?

    Let's see... I want a leather jacket, an Italian stiletto with a damascus blade, a Harley, a really hot chick under the tree wearing nothing but a bow (again), and maybe some fencing gear.
  19. They do, but if you pause a movie you can see that every frame is obviously not clear. There's motion blur, and that tends to smooth it out. 25 crisp frames per second is going to look a lot choppier.

    Weird problem...

    I've probably gone longer than that (not that I don't desperately need to), but it might help in your case. Out of curiosity, does reinstalling without reformatting keep your personal settings?

    Weird problem...

    It's spelled "weird" by the way. I know it's usually i before e except after c, so a good way to remember this is that it's literally spelled weird. :tooth: When's the last time you reinstalled windows?
  22. Can you tell the difference without the counter in the corner of your screen?

  24. Anyone who buys online won't even see the box anyway. And most business owners won't care. However, I do have to admit, that's pretty badass. I just hope it's not another HD2900-type release, that is, months too late and a fraction of the performance it's supposed to be.
  25. It said "pimpin'" purple. Does your place of work have a word filter or something? :tooth:
