  • This thread has GOT to be on an FBI Watch-List now. :)
  • Microsoft is finally getting it. They've got many niches of products, but for the longest time, it wasn't a synergistic family. I can't believe MS is now figuring out that they have XBox 360s connected to a lot of TVs, why not leverage that to bri…
  • Hey Buddyj ... the the rest of ya'll (who are wondering who is this Chip guy) Sadly, no gun purchases for me as of late. I'm getting the hankering, though. I'm saving up cash and ready to use the "... Honey, Obama may get re-elected" exc…
  • (Quote) How could the patch cables be bad, I made them :) ::sarcasm:: I'm getting a good, consistent 1Gig connection. Onboard diagnostics and my cheapo LAN tester show good wiring. I'm with you.. some goofy software thing. I'm running AVG free ve…
  • Another way to do this is to use TweakUI power toy from Microsoft.
  • I picked up my AK-47 at the Dallas gun show today. Whoa was that an experience. I've been to the big D gun show before, but it's never been like this. Obama has certainly stirred the redneck pot. The line to get in was well over a quarter mile l…
  • (Quote) I gotta ditto most of what Mr. Bill said HA!! I guess I just did. Till late '90's I used Frankling Covey in the same size and for same reasons Mr Bill did. If I were to go back to paper, I'd go back to Franklin Covey again. It's more than …
  • BuddyJ, thanks for the info. That's great info and stuff I hadn't read anywhere else. Man that saves me a lot of time. I'm fairly decent with the Dremel, so that's no biggie. It looks like I'm well on my way to a decent rifle. Unfortunately, if…
  • (Quote) I heard of a little mag wobble and trigger slap issues. What's strange is I can't find my exact model in any WASR search. Here's the exact AK-47 I bought at gunbroker.com I'm guessing all the WASRs have the mag wobble and trigger slap is…
  • (Quote) Well, heck ya, NiGHTS! To punish the banks, other lenders and borrowers you know what I would do? NOTHING! The market will take care of them all. As it is right now, the hard-working people that were responsible in borrowing are now payi…
  • Buddy J, just bought an AK-47 myself. I pick it up Nov 28th. It's pre-ban, 30rnd clip with 6 position stock 762x39 threaded barrel. It's the Romanian WASR which isn't known for the best quality, but it was new and I got a pretty good deal on it. …
  • Gargy!!!! You're off to get fit and you didn't email me? I'm hurt :( There are so many different ways to lift that actually decompress the spine. For instance, most people do bicep curls standing (pretty tough on the back) or on a curl bench (bet…
  • Thrax you go man! You're inspiring and I like the accountability in posting your activities. Thankfully, I've never been really out of shape but I hear you on the skinny fat thing. I think I've got a different body composition than you, though. I…
  • (Quote) Before there was paper, there was just gold. Gold value obviously equaled gold value.(ya.. not yesteryear). When you change to gold backed paper money, someone has to set a gold ounce value to money value. Who will be in charge of that? …
  • I don't believe getting off the gold standard created our current situation. It simply isn't feasible to back all money with gold. Sooner or later you run out of gold. What really makes a dollar a dollar is our belief it's a dollar. Our belief i…
  • (Quote) Gotta agree with WagsFTW. "Please shop early for best selection" goes for proper size too. The molded "abs" end at his sternum. Sorry, I must click on. My groin hurts looking at that pic.
  • Ok... I'm convinced, I'm building again. Instead of a total build, I think I'm going to just do a MB/CPU/Memory and OS upgrade. My 7900GT SLI video cards are showing their age, but for what I do, they're fine. As much as I'd like to upgrade now, …
  • (Quote) I've already got the 30" monitor from Dell and love it. That'll save a few bucks. (Quote) Very very interesting BuddyJ. It looks like these guys are geared more to what I'm trying to do. They have the CPU power, but I wish they didn'…
  • Wow, I never thought I'd like an HP, but that one looks good. I'm sure pricing it out will put me in sticker shock. Time to save my pennies.
  • I was in the same boat as you. I've got a Compaq NC6400 laptop w/Bluetooth. Why not use it? Seems stupid that there's a plethora of proprietary RF mice out there. Why would anyone want to clog a USB port with a proprietary dongle that does nothi…
  • If you don't have an iphone, I'm not sure why you'd go with this over Microsoft's free (for now at least) Live Mesh which does the same thing... albeit they don't have the cellphone app implemented yet, just
  • I'm curious what you meant by coming down around our ears. Since nothing really has happened yet (federally speaking), we're seeing the market play out now. Just as there's a stock market of buy low, sell high, there's a similar real estate market…
  • BuddyJ!!! I've graduated from our morning IRC chatroom of 3 to IC! Anyways, I found the best all purpose shoes. They can be polished up to work with a suit or look great with black jeans, industrial belt and T. I danced in them all night at Neo …
  • Thanks for the link. My take is it seems pretty simple to me what happened, lack of personal responsibility and accountability. Mortgage lenders allowing people to buy what they couldn't afford. People borrowing more than they can consistently pa…
  • (Quote) Missileman, you nailed it. I've got a Linksys Wireless router. I KNEW that connection icon was doing port forwarding but for the life of me I couldn't understand why. I guess I still don't see a need for it since the Linksys will already…
  • I'm Chip. I've been folding with you guys for a month or so. I think I've got about 160WU's.. it's a start. I'm an old guy of 36 and am the webmaster for Clan Beowulf. I've been working hard learning PHP (we run PHPNuke). I just made my first P…
