    Poor old people the drugs they did in high school are haunting them....

    See kids this is why we don't do drugs. They make it so you can't find the on/off switch to a computer.

    Airbornflight muses over his difficulty in resisting upgrading his computer.


    All of these pricecuts and people talking about their upgrades while I am wanting to wait till next july/august is like talking to a girl and her giving you the look after my pastor just gave a speech over abstinance. I am trying so very hard to resist the temptation...

    My mom actually woke me up early asking me if I had a solution to your problem. I didn't even get out of bed, just told her to refer you to [Short-Media]. Seems like it worked.

    Cyclonite performs a selfless act of kindness for his supervisor:

    I just did this setup for our CFO...ended up purchasing an AGP card from a retail store....He already had a PS/2 mouse and keyboard, so I just grabbed him a USB mouse and keyboard as well.

    Video Card: $80
    Keyboard: $25
    Mouse: Free (Had one lying around)
    The happiness in my CFO's (the guy that signs my checks) eyes: priceless

    There are some things money can't buy... and that's why you kiss ass.

    How do gamers who run Linux run their games? What is the typical scenario?
    -Living Dead Child

    Have Windows installed on another partition and use it. It's the only surefire way to have the games run, since nobody seems to care about cross compatibility.

    Make sure your bootloader entry is hidden. Call it Mandrake or something. They'll never look there, it's too softcore. Otherwise you'll piss off hardcore Linux guys... Especially those debian nuts. They'll pee all over your keyboard for blashpeming linux.

    Buddy Jesus Confesses:

    You can't "try to be punk" because that isn't punk. You either are or you aren't. Punk isn't about your dress code. I have more punk in my pinky finger than half the kids with liberty spikes and a Clash t-shirt.

    Guyute provides an insight concerning multilevel marketing:
    A good set of questions to ask, because once in a blue moon a reputable MLM comes along (I think), are
    1) Do you have to spend a LOT of $$ to sign up? The more $$ to sign up, the faster you should run. Usually means they are about to give you a wedgie you will never forget!

    Rob and Seth discussing their latest investments

    thraacks: No, going to write a check to Alex Rodriguez so his son, dying of cancer, can receive treatment. What's the equivalent area code for Sierra Leone?
    skwitko: Actually, they're clearing those checks in Nigeria now.
    thraacks: Wow.. Nigeria has always been a major hub of investment
    skwitko: I know a great escrow service, and you just wire them $500 to cover fees. I'm going to use the money I won in the EU lottery.
    thraacks: I'm going to invest in new shipments of Cialis and Xanax from Canada. I heard about it in my email.
    skwitko: Forget that, I'm going to enlarge my breasts.
    thraacks: It's with that new cream, right?
    skwitko: Yep! I'll be sporting a sweet set of double-D's.
    thraacks: Awesome. If these new pills I got an email about really pan out, I'll need a third pant leg.

    Three hammers for the Admin-kings under the owner title
    zero for the spam-lords in their third world sty,
    zero for the n00bs with problems not a trifle,
    Five for the Ban Lords at reported posts' beckon call,
    In the Land of Short-Media where the spammers lie.
    One hammer to ban them all, one admin to use it,
    one hammer to crush them all, and with power not abuse it.
    In the Land of Short-Media where the spammers lie.

    -Thrax puts the evil spammers on notice.

    Two Short-Media staff members discuss romance and the treachery of the female species

    Kwitko:
    It's a trap! She gauging your reaction, although she may not even be aware of it. Women test men,
    even subconsciously. Tread lightly, friend.
    profdlp:
    That's true. Just the other day this winsome lass came up to me on the street and asked if I knew
    the square root of 729. Good thing I'm a genius and knew the answer. :cool:
