Don't blame the phone... blame yer ears... ;)

I woke up an hour early this morning and can't get back to bed. My head is surprisingly fine, so that's good at least...

(no offense Vike, I'm sure you teach something useful)

Well, I wonder sometimes, haha! Am I teaching the next Einstein, or the next Hitler? What if I'M the reason they're an Einstein, or Hawkings, or Segal or Steinbeck, or HITLER????? Arggghhhh!

Teach like I'm affecting the future, that's my motto.

Enough of that jazz...

It's 11:00 am, I finally get a small, teeny tiny break, and I'm getting 100+ dollars of stuff in the mail soon. I'm PUMPED!

I got a set of 4 headphones, a 4 way splitter, a printer cartridge and all kinds of mind-numbing info on National Board stuff last night - it's like Christmas all ready! Which is scary considering I'm not even ready for my first Parent Teacher conference yet...

I can't believe they're asking for mid-term grades all ready! Time really is flying...

Critical
09-09-2008, 09:37 AM
mid term grades should be easy: fail, fail, fail...

I'm waiting on stuff too, I've got a huge order out for parts, I've got a couple of trade packages that had better arrive this week, and i need to pay the machinist for half-blocking my Trilogy, too bad the spring feed won't be done til next week :(

Keep up slow poke, this OT thread is hoppin' up in here! ;)

DFSniper
09-09-2008, 11:15 AM
agreed.

ted, thats why i set 2, sometimes 3 alarms. wake up at 6:30, lay in bed til 6:45, and in case i managed to fall asleep, have another one set for 7:00. that still gives me enough time to get ready for school and rush out the door.

crit, my economics teacher told me last semster that we're supposed to forget what we learn. school is to make us LEARN how to think and reason, WHAT we learn isnt that important because we'll never use it. :D

Taco and I run Canon's, so I'm not so certain that it'd work even if it was the right size... And to top it off, the lens he's getting isn't the kind that an everyday photographer has, and they milk you for every last cent on those items. Heck, his lens hood was something like $50 for his new lens! :eek:

Unless it screws into 77mm filter threads then it won't work, hell even canon makes a specific hood just for this lens, its the only one that fits.

Man, you're hard on your stones! I still use the one I used on my striker - it's just a little worn down...

Its probably cause I used a drill, My dremel is battery powered(FTL!), and the first time I put enough pressure to snap off the head, and then the second time I just got too excited and with the drill once again the leverage just breaks these little things.

OT: Dual booting Linux (Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy) and Vista Basic (might update to Ultimate if I can with Cheri's Upgrade Anytime CD... going to try that later). I was reading up about it on ThinkWiki (http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Pre-Installation_steps) and think I can do it following their method. I have Vista installed already, so that's the only iffy part. I also have already created backup disks at the first time I booted up (never know when you're going to need to revert to factory defaults).

Any input?

tim, when you do a fresh install, i would partition the hard drives, and install one OS on each HDD. then it'll prompt you with a boot screen every time you turn the pc on unless you change settings.

cool! well anyways the big reason I decided to post here a bit more was actually for the contest. I see how things are kinda dry at the moment. I know the main reason I even moved out of my old forum is because its just the mods and a Old guys that have stuck around and I wan'ted to find a spyder community.

oh yeah were in the works of creating a new forum about nothing!:D It will be awesome because right now the most power anybody active has is to edit post and it need a whole bunch of work. So were going to just move out.

Hey! page 48, finally. Here I was thinking that we'd have more than a thousand posts, and we're only at....472. I really thought more would come out to play.

And how can you have a forum about nothing, if it's about nothing than that nothing is something, so it's not nothing.

OK Crit... LOL!

We will have a thousand posts if we keep up the pace you and I are going at. :) Poor Sunny, he's going to have a helluvatime trying to get the results all sorted out!

ferret15
09-11-2008, 12:55 PM
because the name is awsome, I wont release it till its up and running.

But basically our problem is new people sign up and then like most newbs their gun is broken or they ask a really stupid question like what gun should I blow this wad of cash.
Well have answered every single post. but we have been off topic for about a year or more. that newbs don't stay around because we rarely talk about paintball in a paintball forum. To make things worse we start threads and the conversation carry over and continue anywhere. we will be off topic here but over there we would be on topic, but we don't move the conversation because over there Its crazy of topic, one time we started talking about a gerbil that was in a guys avatar when he just stopped in to say hi.

so thats a quick run down why nobody new stays. so we are going to take our Seinfeld like forum elsewhere.:D

I am starting to like the new metallica sound. Its so much better than a lot of crap that is on the rock stations.

one of my radio stations played most of the album on air last weekend. Its freakin' sweet. It makes you really appreciate guitar solos even the littlest ones.

I've heard a couple of the songs, I wasn't that impressed. For all that Rick Rubin has been touted as being this amazing producer, he still can't make a group of whiney, greedy has-beens sound good again.

I could agree more, but I can't stand some of the crap some of these newer bands have. Metallica will never have another St. Anger album again but it doesn't mean that we wont see some halfway decent music.

My favorite music is engine noise. Nothing like the sound of some poor little 4-banger that's been totally rebuilt into a screaming monster.

There is a replacement for displacement, it's called technology. Although, there are a very few 8 cylinder cars that I wouldn't mind someone giving me.

I wouldn't mind having a N/A 4 banger, but right now the $$$ isn't their for a fun project. I was considering a honda because you can find them easy and parts are gallore
