So $1,224 Canadian looks like about $1,250 or so here in CA eh? +taxes I'd imagine.
This is so ironic, my comp just died on me. A few days ago, after gaming for a few hours, I was just viewing web pages (news sites, not porn Thraxy!) the comp just shut off as if it was unplugged. I thought that was word, then it did it again a couple times on my son yesterday.
Now, when you hit the power button, it sounds like it is going to start up, but never does, it never makes any beeps, it never gets to where you can hit F7 (or is that F8?) to start it in safe mode.
So, it looks like I am going to need one ASAP if no one has any good idea.
Sorry Thraxy, I didn't mean to highjack your thread.
Thought I was dead, Fuck you, I'm still alive!!!
A bit older though, a couple weeks ago I threw myself a 50th b-day party (7-23-61) that was so much fun, I had about 40 ppl over.
I haven't been gaming or sitting in front of the comp at all. I still have the same POS comp, not sure if it would even run CSS, maybe I'll try.
For the first time since 1989 I find myself unemployed (ya, before some of you were born). It's been about a month now, and I'm stil enjoying it. Every morning is a Sunday morning!!!
Well now that I got the log in figured out I'll be checking in more.
Hello my fellow knuckleheads! Hope all is well for all of you.
I was having trouble logging in, I kept trying and saying fuck it, I'll just view as a guest! Well I finally figured it out so here I am!
I thought I would share something funny I saw last night with daughter. Last week we saw the new Tron movie, it was ok, but I wanted her to see the original one from 1982. Her and I earlier in the evening were clowning on Charlie Sheen with his "Winning" phrase that he does in that smug ass tone. We were clowning on people doing stupid shit and saying "Losing!" in that same tone. Well half way through the original movie there is a scene where where Jeff Bridges looks down at the gaurds that are searching for him and says in that same smug ass tone- "losing!!" it was funny as all hell.
Yeah I know, most of you weren't even born yet when that movie came out. If you go watch it, watch for that part, but also listen to some the terms they use. Keep in mind this 1982 when it was realeased, Steve Wosniak and Steve Jobs probably just moved out of their garage into an office building!
Tickets to game 1 of the World Series?
<<<<<<<<------ this guys does!!!
damn right! I'll be in the 3rd row of section 137 left field bleachers, yes i will have my glove so I can catch a Cody Ross homerun!!
Ok, I've had all I can stand and I can't stands no more!! (ow, sounded like Popeye there)
My comp is old, but still seems plenty powerful enough for what I need, I just can't justifying tossing it aside and buying a new one, it's not the money, it just seems like if I knew what the hell I was doing it would be easy to get this thing running right.
It's the same one I've been using ever since I knew you guys. It's a 2003 Sony Viao. I know, first reaction, "7 years old? Get rid of it and get a new one" well maybe after describing what the issues are you guys still say the same maybe I will
Sony Viao desktop
3GHz pentium 4 supporing hyper- threding technology
160 GB hard drive
Memory was upgraded to 1.5 GB
When I bought this the first thing I did was create a recovery disk so I could return it to factory conditions if need be, well I tried using it hoping to wipe it clean and start over. I must have screwed up, the DVD was blank.
This computer has had it's share of viruses which at different points I have stabilized but never felt was completely wiped out. The viruses also did damage that appear to have been permanant like the screensaver option-gone, ms explorer never has worked right since being attacked. The defrager was wiped out also, not able to defrag. Most recently, my complete profile was completely wiped clean, gone, all programs, files, music, everything.
Ihave always shared this comp with the kids so there was about 5-6 profiles/accounts on it
A few months back I put all pictures, all music and all documents I wanted to save on a mem stick.
I want to reformat, completly wipe it clean and reinstall windows. I have windows xp but would be ok with an upgrade to a different version if you guys recommend the newer versions. My guess a problem would be finding out the exact drivers needed to make DVD/cd burner and the cd-rom work. Don't know what they are. Of course I would want MS office and a good disc burning program. When I bought this comp everything came pre-installed, it had a ton of programs with no discs, so I have nothing to reinstall, except a few like CSS, Kapersky, I also still have a copy of MS Office 2003 student version which I have installed 2 of the 3 available copies on 2 comps.
So what do you guys think, sound easy enough to help me fix this one? Maybe send me a few disks to make it easy? Or should I just shit can this thing?
(caution, long winded post ahead!!!)
that's right, I'm popping in just to say howdy and just update you guys on what's been going on, kinda like a blob or twitter post!
Lifes been pretty good, no complaints. I finally got to a point where I just had to shut off the computer and get outside and do more stuff! I've been doing some fishing, not much catching, mostly just wasting money on bait, still fun. I also played a little tennis, started playing golf again, I even went to the gym for the first time ever last week! I got a 7 day free pass to 24hr fittness, I'll sign up when I see the right deal. Last weekend I was in Rage's stomping grounds, I went to go see some friends and see their Daughter perform the lead role in a play at Truckee Highschool, heading up there again this weekend. I waved at Rage's parents, they just flipped me off and asked me to tell that no good kid of theirs to get back home and clean up his room!
I haven't played any css in almost 2 months! not saying I am through with that game, just taking a break and enjoying life. I know that is what a lot of us are doing these days, that is why we haven't been spending time on the forums, hell I remember back when I would post 4,5,6 times a day and spend countless hours reading all the post. Well, life happens, and we all eventually find something new that holds our interest. I still check the forums every so often, nothing like before, still fun to chime in now and then.
Below is an e-mail I sent out to all of my family and friends last week, just letting them know that the old me is back! ready to get out and have fun.
"To my family and friends,
I am not sure why I am sending out an email like this, all I can say
is that this seems like the right thing to do.
Cindy was a major part of my life, she will always have a special
place in my heart. But it feels like it is time to move on. It feels
like the mourning process is over. I am ready to begin the next phase
of my life as a single man. I've been feeling better about myself and
my future and I am working on getting this overweight body back to the
size of a normal human being! Of course part of being a single man
includes dating again, it's been a few years so I am a bit rusty. Even
the dating process has changed with the introduction of the Internet.
The last time I dated, there was no Internet, hell, there weren't
even personal computers or cell phones! I was thinking about placing
an online add on one of those singles sites so I thought I would run a
possible ad by you guys first and you can tell me what you think, it
would go something like this-
"looking for young, hot, attractive female who is looking for a fat
ugly old guy for meaningless relationship!"
Honesty, I believe in honesty!
Something that has also changed is pick-up lines, here are a few I
remember and have used, perhaps you guys can tell me your opinion on
some of them and warn me about the ones to stay away from.
Hey babe, what's your sign?
That dress looks nice on you, the only thing that might look better on
you is me!
I bet that outfit would look great all crumpled on the floor!
Is it hot in here or is it just you?
Out of all the girls in this room you are the hottest and I wanted to
give you the first opportunity to turn me down, sooooooo, would you
like to dance?
Hello, I'm mr. Right, someone said you were looking for me.
Your eyes are bluer than the toilet water
Can I at least get a fake number from you?
(passing by) hi, do you remember me? No? You will. (keep walking with
(come back later) Now do you remember me?
I might not be the best looking guy here but handsome is just a
And if all of these fail I'll try-
Does this rag smell like chloroform?
Ok, ok, maybe I won't try all of those lines, (even though I don't see
how you can miss with the "eyes are bluer" line!!), but as you can see
I am ready to laugh again, ready to enjoy life. I just wanted to
thank all of you who were there to help my and the kids to get through
a very difficult time. Even if you weren't able to be here physically,
your thoughts and prayers helped us. So if you call some radom Friday
night and can't get through to me, it's because I am out having fun
Hope to see you all soon
well take care guys, see ya around,
It could be a coincident, but my comp is completely fucked now. While we played that other night my game froze then steam shut down and won't start up, but it doesn't stop there, it won't run the defrag, avast won't run, malaware won't run, kaspersky did run a full system scan but only detected a few minor things that didn't make a difference. Most programs won't run, my comp folder won't open. I tried to open the comp in safe mode by spamming F8 right after the "beep" but it won't start in safe mode. I was even going to run the recovery disc and lose every thing, but of course it wouldn't run. I'm ready to torch it!!!!
in China a guy who was heavily in debt was standing on a bridge threatening to commit suicide when a passer by came up and pushed him over the side!! :cheers:
story about the rape and murder of the 8 year old Tracy CA girl over the past few weeks as seen HERE . What is so frikin hard to believe is the accused is a 28 year sunday school teacher and mother of a 5 year old girl named Melissa Huckaby. So frikin mind boggling.
another victim in this story is a different 28 year old sunday school teacher in the next town over who looks a lot like her named.. Melissa Huckaby as seen HERE, again, so bizarre

I think not, but let's see them!
if you don't know how to check, just type "!w a" in game on a server that is running FBG, copy and paste here
I'm just curious, do any of you still play CSS? go ahead and explain your reply if you would like.
If you do still play, where do you play?
Do you have a favorite server? It's ok to mention other servers. It's not like they are our competion any longer.
What do you like about their servers?
do you have a favorite map?
a 1999 30th anniversary Trans Am!
there were only 1500 of them sold in the US and 100 in Canada
1100 were coupes with T-tops and 500 were convertables
Mine is #296
it has 109 original miles, not a misprint 109, not 109,000!
that's right 10 years old and only a little over 100 miles.
it still has the dealer sticker on the window!
This car has always been covered in the garaged, never been waxed, the tires have never been armoralled, it has only been washed a few times.
there is no question about the miles. The owner is my brothers best friend and my brother is the only one who has driven it in the last 6 years, the original owner is big guy and no longer fits so he has my brother fire it up every couple of weeks and pull it out into the driveway and back.
It comes with an extra rim, headrests, floor mats, original posters, extra emblems (all purchased from GM) and a few other goodies. of course it also includes all sales receipts. I'm pretty exited. when i pick it up and get some good pictures I'll post them, but these are what it looks like. They all came white on white seats with blue racing stripes. if you guys get a chance google. On one of the sites you can see a list of all the registered owners, so you will see #296's original owner, but i'll gladly change that soon.
I don't think i can just sitt on this car though, i will have to put some miles on it, possible enter it into a few shows. i originally thought that i might go ahead and put a few thousand miles on it, but now i think i will keep the miles to a minumum.
The price? well, it was between $1 - $1,000,000,000,000,000, somewhere in there
