I thought it was comic genius, and I applaud your efforts, Mr. Groove. It was original and witty; what more can you want in your funny?Oh, I'm sorry - I forgot my primary concern. Entertaining you. Please, find it somewhere in your heart to forgive me, Lord of Comedic Pictural References, O Sutlan of Witty Imagry! Dick.
That picture really isn't that funny anymore.Â
Honestly, that's so arrogant. So much humor goes so un appreciated and ignored in this community, it never ceases to amaze me. As if there wasn't enough tension already, you take a big fat steamy shit on any piece of levity that flows by. Next time instead of saying it isn't funny to you, maybe you should try to do better. Sorry, that's my little rant for this evening.
When's the last time you used a Pulsator? You could throw the balls with more accuracy and range than it can fire them. And the Cyclotron...ugh. It's pretty much impossible to aim because of the weird design and the fact that you have to crank it, and fires ridiculously slowly for how much work you have to put into it. Did I mention it's pretty much ginormous?
You must have a renegade against ball guns. The cyclotron isn't that bad, and really, neither is the pulsator.
You don't know what you're talking about. The iPod firmware is upgradable, is offered on Apple's website for ANYONE to use, and has been upgraded at least half a dozen times. I think it takes a max of five mouse clicks to upgrade the firmware.
Another plus of the I-river, cancelling out the "mini-computer" minus--IPOD FIRMWARE SUCKS. You CANNOT upgrade ipod firmware unless you get someone who works at apple and is your friend to do so.
What exactly sucks about the iPod's firmware? Maybe you don't like the interface, but claiming the firmware sucks would be a reaction to freezing, skipping, crashing, etc, which I've heard of happening only a handful of times ever, to any owner of an iPod.
Wrong. The DRM on the iPod only applies to protected AAC files, and it's easy as falling off a log to rip the DRM out of an AAC file, on Windows or Mac with Hymn.
I upgraded to the 1.27 korean version because it ELIMINATES DRM, which is impossible on ipods.
2) It will hold as many files as fit in 4GB, regardless of bitrate.
3) Click Wheel, all the way. All the controls are in one place, you get tactile response (clickiness) on the play/ffwd/rwd/menu/select buttons, and the innards are greatly improved (faster response, more room for future OS upgrades, etc)
5) Probably. If you wait about a month from when you buy Apple hardware, they'll release something twice as good for $100 less. Always.
6) It lets you either play all the songs straight through or shuffle them (go figure). It doesn't support multiple playlists.
7) It says HP on the back and comes with stickers.
I like your style.
No way, sorry, it's iPod or nothin'. Last time I bought a different mp3 player and was disappointed. I don't care about the price. I definitely want a pod.
Or people with access to a good torrent tracker...
The only people to whom office is easily accessible is college students (who can legally get it for free depending on their school) and people who use it at their place of buisiness.
Seriously, though, OpenOffice does all the MS Office file formats, is free, is cross-platform, and works well.
Also, I'll be happy to trace Boltsniper's drawings in Illustrator and host them as EPS, AI, PNG, or whatever file format people want.
Talio, it's the off-topic forum. If you don't want to help, shut up; remember how post-whoring works?
You reset the power manager, good first step. Have you tried zapping the PRAM? Hold down Option-P-R while booting to do so. The PRAM is the Mac equivalent of a PC's CMOS; it holds things like time and date, boot disk, and various low-level hardware configs. If it gets corrupted, it can cause all kinds of (minor) problems, one of which is lack of booting.
If that doesn't work, it's quite possible that the PRAM battery is dead. I would leave it plugged in and powered off for a couple days to give it time to recharge, just to see if it can be coaxed back to life, but if not, check eBay for a PRAM battery. Should be $12-$20, and you won't need to buy another for at least another two years.
Cx's suggestion is a good one too, especially with the Intelligent Battery-equipped PowerBooks.
Been sitting dormant for 5 months...interested in selling it?
The store sold out of/moved their metal stock by the time I got back to pick some up. Sorry kids...
Okay, a locally-owned hardware store near me is going out of business, and everything in the store is 50% off. This means 3 feet of 9/16" brass for $4-ish, and I thought for those kids who can't get their hands on brass, or want to save a few clams, I'd pass the savings on. It's not exactly flying off the shelves, so there's probably 30-ish feet of it that I can get my hands on.
Um...where do you see a Tek 12?
Also that Tek 12 looks pretty cool with the dual 6 barrel turrets.
Damn. Hasbro may have some severious competition. That's like, everything we want, right there!
I wonder, though, how are we going to get our hands on these? Buzz Bee apparently doesn't distribute very widely, and I know some of the guns on their website have never been seen in the plastic by the NIC (unless of course someone is holding out). The ballguns, and the refill packs leap to mind.
Tait, your comment about "an era of misconstrued information and propaganda" isn't really relevant, because it was a war. That's how wars work. You inflate numbers to boost morale. You can't win a total war without doing that; propaganda is not all bad.
This shouldn't have been made into a patriotic-American-versus-liberal-Aussie thing, but since it has I'll leave you with this: We don't question the diggers' heroics in WWII. I wouldn't refute you about what they were awarded the Victoria Cross or whatever for it. Let's respect that both of our countries had heroes, thousands or millions of whom died to protect our freedom, and let the details of their heroism drop in the face of our gratitude for their actions, knowing that whatever they did, however many guys they shot, blew up, or bashed to death, it was enough to get the job done and more than we could likely ask of ourselves.
Don't assume yet that it's destroyed, you don't know that. All we, we being everyone but the staff of NHQ, know is that we can't access the forums. Have patience, it's probably not as severe as you think; at the worst we will all have to sign up again and start over, but if Spanky's worth his salt he has backups somewhere.
Actually, on that note, I have question. I've never been able to understand the psyche of the kids who type in all caps all the time, and I'm curious.
Why do you type in all caps?
