Re: game #2 of Neptune's Pride 2

Good game everyone. I'm moving to Rochester NY and starting a new job so I will have to skip this next game. Have fun!

Advance Directives

This question is mostly for Alan, but others can weigh in too. I'm filling out my advance directives for medical care in case I'm incapacitated. I have zero perspective on the potential treatments at various stages of incapacitation and I'm not entirely clear about how well defined some of these ter...

Re: POS Acer Laptop Overheating

I took it apart. Basically no dust/gunk in the fan or in the case. I ordered premium CPU heatsink paste off newegg and it should get here any day now. There's almost no room for air to escape below the fan. The vents are just way too small. I think drilling some tiny holes is the best, simplest way ...

Re: DMCA Bullshit

I guess the question is what can I do to avoid getting another DMCA warning? How can I still get the downloads I need without exposing myself to potential liability?

POS Acer Laptop Overheating

Can't even watch a movie on Hi-Def without this thing overheating and shutting down. Elevating the laptop wasn't cutting it. For a while I was just dealing with it the next laziest way possible: putting the laptop on a bunch of cryopacks (leaving space for the tiny vents). This was working ok, excep...

New Laptop

After seven years I'm going for an upgrade. People seem to be discussing hardware less often, but feel free to chime in if you know what's up. Jonathan recommended an i3 or i5 with DX11 compatible video card. Sounds good to me. Newegg Prices for i5 w/DX11 start at ~$750 which is not bad. I can get t...

Macs

When I was young I disliked several things about Macs: 1) Far fewer games. Games released later. Warez were a bitch to find. 2) How I couldn't just press a button to get my floppy disk ejected from the drive. 3) Some elitist bullshit about how Macs were for people who couldn't handle the command pro...

Re: Karaoke

I'm wondering which Johnny Cash song you're thinking of where he's traveling octaves. Lots of songs like "Wanted Man" are mostly just one note.

Re: Karaoke

Ok listen up because skanks is going to school you on Karaoke greatness. First point, and this point is very important, is pick the right song. Chances are that you cannot sing very well but don't let that stop you. You just need to keep this in mind in song selection. You want songs that can be "su...

Re: 2008 Obesity Statistics

Apparently the CDC study relies substantially on self-reported weight via telephone interviews. A research group at Harvard estimated how people (especially women) tend under report their weight in telephone interviews and wrote a paper examining obesity trends that took this information into accoun...

Re: iPhone 2009

Apple is probably timing the announcement of the new iPhone to coincide with the release of Palm's Pre. I was thinking about getting a Pre ever since CES. The Data Aggregation seemed like it could be a revolutionary feature.

New Landlord, New Problems

Just moved in two months ago. Landlady wants to raise rent by $100/month. Obfuscates the increase. Justifies it will bullshit. Now I must move again in June. Everyone else is leaving too. Mass exodus because this bitch is so greedy while rents are stagnant or declining. I'm looking into buying a hou...

Re: I'm racist

So I was at this bar tonight ("Afterwords" off Dupont Circle) talking to this Japanese girl. She was pretty annoying -- not because she was Asian, just because she was stupid. But I kept at it because I knew how important it was for me to nail Asian chicks just so I can prove to Dave how not racist ...

Re: I'm racist

I think this is a really productive dialogue that were having on race. I really think that in the spirit of open discussion and oneness we are breaking down some of some of the barriers that separate us. I've been reflecting on some of my own barriers. For instance I've realized that I've never actu...
