    Putting your computer on hibernate/standby is a pretty good compromise between power consumption and hardware degradation.

    Unless you're running 10 year old hardware then don't worry about shutting off your computer all the time because you're worried it will 'wear it out'. It's a myth.

    I never used to turn my computer off until I moved out and had to start paying electricity bills, my last one was $300 and that's more than bad enough.

    How the hell do you rack up a bill like that??

    I live with two of my guy-friends...all three of us have our comps on throughout the day...and I'm pretty sure our hot water/heating is electric......and our last bill was only $100.

    We get our electricity bills every three months.

    also bringing dead corpses back to life without readily available electrical storms uses up a fuckton of power.

    That's right. if you always keep it running from the wall, take the battery out. My laptop battery is screwed.



    Well that explains a lot about why my battery life is 4 minutes now. :c

    Those promotional posters of Daniel Craig in the new Bond movie look weird. Why does he have such an (un-natural) thick head of hair? Do the producers say, "photoshop in some thicker hair. If people know he is balding, they wont go see the movie!" ?

    He does look very young... I suspect a tiny bit of Photoshop trickery has been used:

    Goddammit. I parked on the wrong side of the street with the intention of going back out in a few hours and moving.

    I forgot, and the sweeper's coming around. Crap. Hope I don't have another ticket (I am really bad at parking in cities...:( )

    Crap, I have an event at a hotel.... I hate these events, I always have to drive instead of taking the train. Also, they are boring. Who wants to trade? Fancy hotel in the Caribbean for cold snowy weather?

    Edit: I just spend an hour in traffic... I hate driving to work.

    Better than doing four large projects simultaneously. I wish I could do them sequentially. Unfortunately, if I want to complete two majors in four years that means 4 studio classes + liberal ed + non-studio every semester. D:

    I can't wait to sit in a gallery all day, that'd be so relaxing. There actually might be an opportunity to get a studio/gallery/show space in the basement of a couple of instructors' studio. It'll be cheap with a couple of friends. :D

    Ok so I don't think this deserves its own thread, but I have an idea of making something for a girl I rather like:

    http://watch.discoverychannel.ca/#clip108129

    So, can any of you think of a place that would sell ostrich or emu eggs? I've looked around at pretty much every place in town, and I'm guessing it's down to either trying to contact local farms, or ordering on ebay. Any thoughts? There's a couple that aren't that bad coming in from the states (about 30-40 dollars for like 4, compared to the shipping from australia), so I could always make multiple as gifts for others as well and give her the best one.

    Would anyone with a scanner like to lend me a hand? I need a scan of just the empty scanner bed, so in effect, close the lid and press scan and that's what I need an image of. Doesn't need to be at a ridiculous DPI or anything.

    If anyone would be goodly enough to do this for me, please PM. Also, prizes!

    Yeah, still send it along Mustang! I'm curious what you mean by "Shit scanner". And thanks again Tam.

    As for its purpose, I'm taking some digital camera photos and doctoring them up to look like photos taken on a disposable camera from the 80's, then needed a scanner bed background to place them on and realized I didn't have access to that here at hope.

    If it makes you feel any better my kitten got brutally enjured by my senile neighbours dog. Then my kitten hid behind his trees for 3 days to injured to climb back the fence to our house. Then he walked in his backyard and sprayed it with a water hose in a attempt to scare it away. Then he left my kitten there to die and didn't bother tell us where our missing cat was.

    And then a neighbour finally found it by the smell 2 weeks later after that.

    P.S. My sister killed his dog. But that's a wholeeee different story.

    In other news why the hell are my teachers making my life more difficult then it should be with doing my damn sculpture drawing? I'm doing it on my free time, not only are they walking up to me and saying..... "HOW CAN YOU MAKE TIMEEEEE?" There also kicking me out of there classes because me sitting in the corner of a art class drawing something. Is apparently... To much of a bother. But I blame the fact it was a ignorant subsitute.

    Edit: seriously you silly professors, I dont spend a additional 5 hours a day outside of my classes inside the classes for nothing

    It's that kinda shit is why my cat is only allowed supervised excursions into the back yard, he's far too adorable to be left to fend the dangers of suburbia and he's the only thing that cheers me up after the horrors of work.
    My case in point.

    Absolutely. We discussed that one the most I think, and I absolutely could not figure out the reasoning behind it, nor could I understand how anyone would sign off on it.

    Yeah, it's good until you consider the logo for an airport shouldn't contain anything remotely resembling an explosion in it.

    God, I know. I'm glad somebody agrees.

    Going off of those designs...



    You know how every decade/clump of ~20 years has a distinct "style?" At least in the past 100 years (most recognizably, at least?).......looking at those logo redesigns made me think: this is what the 2010's will look like.....all the redesigns (or the majority) have this bright, springy, innocent child-like ...happiness to them, almost...I don't know how to really describe it....upbeat? bright colors, "fun" patterns and shapes, smooth'd out things, lots of curves...is this what'll define the look of this decade? Almost back to the 60's/70's, but more modernized and "controlled".

    Obviously my thoughts on this aren't limited to only those designs, but it seems like it's been a trend in the past few years.

    Well the way they made it was yelllow and red, the shape is interesting but yah it is kind of a big explosion, probablyyyy could of made it blue and green or whatnot.

    and as for nightdragon, I think everyone will agree that the animal planet one is horrible.

    I would say though that everything seems to be going for a more fluid feeling. Except one.... did anyone else asides me laugh when reading the Dolby one? That one was by far the most rediculous thing to list as exceptional logo rebranding.
