Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Not that I know of but I kind of like it. It especially keeps the debate in D&D even more civil. I'm sure SE++ has benefited from it as well.

    I will only sponsor you if you can answer me these questions 3.

    1. What is your favorite color?
    2. What type of racing are you planning on doing?
    3. What are the correct rims to use for this car?

    1. On a this car? Blue.
    2. Autocrossing.
    3. Correct rims? Well I think racing slicks are more common in 18" sizes, so it would be helpful to have an 18" rim for the car, but the 15.5" rotors won't clear most 18" wheels. I think CCW makes a wheel that will clear the rotors/calipers.

    ps - I can't afford tires or brakes either. So please include extras. Thanks!

    You will be tempted to buy something ultra-padded and secure, to keep the precious laptop alive and well. Don't. You will ifnd that the ultra-padding reduces the usable space inside the bag to next to nothing, while making the whole contraption cumbersome and annoying to carry around.

    After this, you will be tempted to buy something sleek and simple, barely bigger than the computer itself. Don't. You will drop it in an airport and the lack of padding will mean you irretrievably damage the casing.

    Basically I have no useful advice on the matter.

    My advice to you would be to stop owning laptops. Try to do your mobile computing on a phone or etch-a-sketch!

    Dirty Vag, is this the bag you use?

    Yes, me and laptops have a sad history. But I also recently left my ipod in Belgium, so that's not working out particularly well either.

    Just saw a possom get land basted by the Volvo in front of me... So the best part of this whole thing was after the car hits the possum it rolls under the car and is still alive but wounded I can't let this poor little critter be maimed in the road so I execute the double tap and put it out of it's misery. Does the story end there.... Nope. So we get to a stoplight and the Volvo is stopped so I beep my horn and give the international sign of roll down your window. The car is full of a mid 40's obvious liberal married couple and a 80+ year old grandma in the back seat. I yell across "hey you guys didn't kill it it was still alive" they proceed to cheer and Smile. Then I follow with " but I did" the cheer turns to an oh my god and a liberal sense of what have we done. And I drive away....
    I think there is something in the local water that is making everyone complete assholes or just douche-bags...Luckily I have well water. So you all probably don't notice how fucking lame you are. Go to hell motherfuckers, oh wait we are already there. Hang yourselves...kill each other..just fucking hurry up and stop breathing somehow so new people can fill your places.
    its funny how many class-less, culture-less and worthless [n-word]'s there are in this town. DEAR RUSSIA: PLEASE NUKE CT
    When a young man with no criminal record cannot find a job, you know there is something wrong with his country. In response to un-employment I have to say FUCK ALL OF YOU IDIOTS FOR PUTTING FAITH IN OUR GOVT. You could have listened to me from day one but you were all too brainwashed..living in your fucked up, pill induced trance, MTV worshiping, liberal, pussy, too afraid to think for yourself...piece of shit world.
    Hopes Thor will be merciful to one of his sons this friday and not split the skies, a great event needs to take place. all non christians are welcome, unless you christ fags would like to be tied to the Life Rune staff to redeem yourself (in the center of the main fire) but if you can hold your tongue and wear no cross then u can come too! Meade and Ale will be served to Sons and Daughters of Odin only! Heiden Spass!

    That last kid seems to think he's a damn Viking.

    Not really. Being "Facebook friends olol" is more of a gesture than anything else, in these cases. Keeping the peace if I happen to see them randomly again, somewhere, which does happen.

    I was "friendly", or a "friendly acquaintance" to these people awhile back...and yes, actual friends with a few of them....but then a handful slowly warped into...other people. :? A few others are friends-of-friends that I've gotten along with well enough the few times I've seen them in person...and rejecting their request would be "serious social dramas". It's really not worth the trouble, unless I really, really dislike the person, and won't be seeing them all that frequently. I avoid causing pointless social upset, even if the reasoning behind it is idiotic and its occurrence would otherwise be out of my control.

    And yes, yes they can. This one looks like it had been recently injured too. It was getting around just fine but there was definitely a patch hair sheered off and some blood frozen to its haunches.

    Then in the past two weeks I've had 5 interviews, two large art tests, more emails coming in asking questions about me, etc etc etc.

    It all hits at once! Its the same thing with my wife too - she gets long droughts and then suddenly she has to turn down work because shes so busy. Then a drought again.

    Well I don't mean autocrossing among cones in a parking lot. I mean autocrossing at Road America in WI, Gingerman Raceway in MI and the Autobahn in Joliet, IL.

    I can't confirm whether or not the SSRs would clear the brake hardware. But they do have some nice wheels.
