    From what i hear, its character heavy with a dash of action towards the end.

    People wanting the next bay flick might have been let down.

    I found an ipod shuffle on the way home that just happens to be the same clip-on model to the one I have but have never used.

    Lets find out what this mystery person was listening to. Gotta find my dock first.

    EDIT: Found my dock. Number 1 most listened to song: 'My Imortal' by Evanescence.

    Mystery of the teenage girl's ipod solved.

    EDITx2: I guess I could hand this in to the police? I'm not even sure it's worth the time, these things are pretty cheap now.

    The NOFX show was amazing last night!

    I <3 NOFX their last few albums have been spot on.


    edit:

    So here's the deal. I enrolled a few years ago in some classes. I withdrew from those classes before the cutoff date because of military obligations. And turns out 2 of the 4 didn't get dropped...

    Well now I have a gpa of 0.0 because I failed them for not attending.

    riiiiiiiiiiiggggghhhhhhhhht.


    So now I have to either go wreck someone's day repeatedly until they remove it, or pay out of pocket for THEIR FUCKING MISTAKE.... nice.

    Oh, and I have to coordinate all this while still over here. This is going to end well.

    Also, my backyard is literally 90% weeds. I bought a bag of mystery pellets that is supposed to kill over 200 kinds of weeds while at the same time promoting healthy grass. I hope it works, I want to walk barefoot on my backyard.... though... my wife will absolutely loose her head if I do that then come in the house.

    I loved Avenue Q, I waited 8 years to see it. Also I can only imagine NOFX made it the best thing ever.

    Didn't Teenage Bottlerocket play with them too? I thought I saw they were on tour.

    UGGGGHHH...

    Usually I am good about not buying food items that are awful for me...but after being thrown off my game by getting to Trader Joe's after it was closed and having to resort to the regular supermarket, I somehow wound up with a bunch of horrible shit in my basket. And what's worse is that I was so caught up in what I was doing I just kept eating all this snack stuff instead of pausing and having an actual meal of the sort an actual dignified human being would eat. I'm not sure there's a single thing I've eaten in the last 24 hours that isn't completely shameful:

    -3 chili dogs
    -A full raspberry danish coffee cake thing
    -2 bags of cinnamon apple chips
    -A bag of Chex Mix
    -A bag of dried mango

    I think I'm going to be ill, what the hell is wrong with me.

    Also I think I just passed the 25 hour mark on staying awake.

    e: goddamn I love me some dried mango, I've done that many a times AoB. Maybe not the other stuff all included, but often I'll end up buying only snack food and eat it whilst crying in the shower and feeling like I've lost all will to live.

    Yes, let's! I tried playing last night but I don't know any good servers anymore.


    Ahab, what you describe is generally what I do when I get mopey-face. I will eat until I look (and feel) pregnant. Which is bad enough unto-itself, but I'm actually trying to take care of my body right now so instead of making progress with all this jogging and what not, I feel like I'm just grinding everything to a stand still and breaking even.

    At least I'm gorging myself on somewhat "healthy" items, but not entirely. Dried mango is my jam!

    I'm trying to be healthy, and more permanently! Gymming routine is picking back up to being a normal routine, and I'm generally being decent in the foodstuffs department.

    I'm failing in eating enough veggies, though...and I'm also drinking beer...but it's so hard to say "no" to that, when drinking beer means I get to hang out and socialize with people for an entire evening! :C

    Hmm... it still hasn't come through on my end. I'm going to assume its because Valves servers are getting hit kinda hard. Lets try again later in the week :)

    Does anyone follow what's up with video card hardware nowadays? My Nvidia GT220 seems to have developed an (apparently quite common) overheating problem where the video just cuts out entirely, screen goes black, and the only way to get the computer back up is to hit the power switch and reboot. (And it's not like I'm trying to run Crysis on supermax ultra settings or anything, it does this on Half-Life: Source.)

    Anyone have suggestions for a replacement? As much as I'd like to be self-sufficient and do my own research and really pick a winner, the fact is I have no idea what half of the shit on the spec lists for these cards mean and I can't imagine that getting up to speed on all of it would prove to be a fun way to spend my time.

    I don't really need the latest and greatest- I just need something that will play games at a mid level of performance and not melt into a pile of red hot slag in a year's time. Is that a stat they put in the spec lists? ETA to meltdown? If they put that in there, I could actually make a decision about this shit.

    I've got an ATI HD 5770. It's good enough for me, for now.

    I think the equivalent card would be like a Gtx 460? Ish?

    Make sure your case has proper airflow and that all your fans are functioning. Maybe add another fan, too, if you have a slot open and a jack left on your motherboard.

    If you've had the same case fans for a year or two and you originally got them on the cheap, theres a nonzero likelihood that the bearings might be bad or that they just plain aren't moving as much air as they used to. So look into that, too.

    The tech subforum has a great computer build thread and you'll get good advice there.

    Tomshardware also does a monthly writeup on the best graphics card for your money, which is http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-graphics-card-game-performance-radeon-hd-6670,2935-3.html.

    I have a HD 5770 in the machine I built last year and It's doing fine. Pretty damn cheap by now as well, at a bit over $100. Obviously, as with all computer things, how much you want to future proof yourself makes the price go up. One particular card may edge out another for certain pricepoints as well if you can manage to snag a killer rebate deal or something.

    Iron Man 2 is on Netflix so I finally got around to seeing it.

    The scene where they're showing footage of the failed Iron Man suit attempts was very reminiscent of the scene from Robocop 2
