Had a water softener when I was growing up, but we had well water.

Sorry to hear about the water heater Blue. I just replaced mine recently. I found out about it when my neighbor (townhouse) asked if something was leaking because her basement was wet

1. Xbox 360 spot banned Mar 28, 2006, 09:52 Tony Z
 
I remember seeing that commercial on the air. It's funny and actually kinda cute in an "adults acting like kids" kinda way.

Why would anyone ban it?

News Comments > Maryland's Violent Gaming Bills
14. Re: Just a waste of time and money... Jan 5, 2006, 09:25 Tony Z
 
The thing about these bills is that the people proposing them, don't actually care if they go through or not. They're just proposing them for the PR so people sone that politician so-and-so is for controlling violent games, which is something that will come in handy when so-and-so is running for a better office next time around.

That's why there's so many stupid laws on the books. The politician don't actually care about the results, just the appearance.

1. Prime outperforms Echoes Jan 14, 2005, 10:31 Tony Z
 
That wouldn't have anything to do with the fact you can pick up Metroid Prime for around $20 where Echoes is $50....

Guess I should have read the link all the way through before posting. Only the Cylinder heads are hemispherical, the pistons themselves are apparently still flat. I though that they were somewhat rounded on the top for higher compression, but I guess maybe that would have the effect of directing more pressure towards the piston rings, which would probably be bad over time...

What's a hemi?

A hemi is basically a regular engine where they pistons (and corresponding cylinder heads) are hemispherical in shape, hence the name. They were mad popular in the 70's becuase Dodge would make huge hemi engines (400+ ci) that produced a ton of power. Recently Dodge has brought them back (in more reasonable displacements), and has been marketing the crap out of them.

Interesting that the challenger in the last two elections both promised to return dignity to the office.

To be more exact, Bush promised to return honor and dignity, whereas Kerry has promised to return honesty and trust to the office, the wording is an intentionally similar dig against Bush.

Just this morning I was checking out the Dodge Magnum

http://www.dodge.com/magnum/photos.html?context=magnum-index

It's not as minivan-ish as the Pacifica, and if you're really insecure you can pay an extra $5K for the fuel-sucking V8.

For the record, I've got a Sebring Convertible right now that I don't plan on getting rid of anytime soon, but the Magnum is my current choice for a replacement in about 5 years and another kid or two.

Jesus may love your hotrod, but does he want it for a sunbeam?

I never really thought of a Sunbeam (http://www.autoswalk.com/worgreatcars.html) as a hot rod, but they are kinda neat little roadsters. :-D

Do you ever plan on giving in and joining us?
They are very good.

I'm sure the show is great, but some of us think that the $90+ we give the cable company every month for TV + internet is already too much without the extra HBO cost.

UFO: Alien Invasion - http://ufo.myexp.de/

I ran across this the other day, it's a fan-created X-Com style game made with id's open-sourced Quake2 code as a starting point. Looks like an interesting project, and maybe someday it'll evolve into a better X-Com successor than Aftermath did.

I can't believe people had complaints with the combat system. Maybe it was better because I played it on the GameCube and not the PC? Sands of time was a great game, very stylish and a great cinematic presentation.

The only complaint I have about the game is it's length, I beat it and still had a few days before Hollywood Video wanted it back

According to the article they're thinking of going after IBM next. Never argue about patents with IBM, they've got some much stuff it's not even funny.

Do gamers actually buy Macs?

Yes, but I would imagine it's not their only platform. I've still got my PC and a GameCube for when I need something other than Unreal Tournament and Blizzard games (although both are good). Hopefully Aspyr does a good job on this, their port of SimCity 4 is dog slow, even on my G5 (although from what I understand, the PC version isn't exactly zippy either).
