Only if you want to post comments on videos.
And that I do. Let's hope BN never gets taken over by Google and requires G+.

All Google accounts are Google+ now, aren't they? Or is it just all Gmail accounts (but I thought all Gmail accounts were Google accounts.)
Google accounts and gmail accounts aren't automatically Google+, but they ask you so damn often, most people either finally accept it so it quits asking or accidentally click the accept button when they're in a hurry and log into gmail. I access my gmail accounts using Thunderbird over IMAP, so I don't see the gmail interface that often. I have one for public use and one for private use. I had to log into my private use gmail account today to update a spam filter, and it tried to get me to sign up for Google+. I declined, but there's this big "sign up" button on the top right of the gmail web interface.
YouTube requires it though!

Happy Birthday, Ant - now go buy a damn Win7 machine!

Thanks, but why? My current one works fine. I don't even game these days, remember? What I do want is more free time, energy/motivation, and :)ness!

Because XP gets no further security patches whatsoever after April 8th?


I am aware of that. I ran old unsupported OS versions like updated W2K SP4, Red Hat Linux v7.x, etc. in the past. I will upgrade/replace my XP Pro. SP3 one day. I was supposed to install 64-bit W7 HPE SP1 during my Christmas 2013 break, but I was too BUSY and tired (unmotivated) with life. I didn't even get to catch up with the Internet like BN (missed daily news between 11/19/2013 and 12/18/2013 (did I miss anythign big/much?) according to my notes)!

happy birthday ant

I anticipate your response 3 days from now per usual

edit: Ah damn you're about to reply early.
Is this early enough? I am slowly catching up on BN so it could be days, weeks, months, years, etc. late.

Thanks all!

Blue, I care not about NFL. I don't even watch Super Bowls' games, but do watch their expensive commercials/ad(vertisement)s/spots! I did like that power outage that interrupted last year's big game that made 49ers almost win.


I do like NBA though, but Lakers suck so I care not about NBA these days. I am just a bandwagon fan.

Hey Blizzard why don't you work on busting all these gold sellers and hackers devaluing your business? Fuck I'm so sick of all the Blizzard scam emails I've been getting of late.
I am getting tired of random spam batches that aren't Blizzard, Amazon, Verizon, etc. like last year.

The only way your dead hands could be cold while clutching a plasma TV would be if it was turned off.

Yeah, but it's near my computer desk, so if I have it on while working I don't even need to turn on the heater! Nevermind the whole efficiency and cost of heating the room relative to the heater!
Or a CRT TV like my 19.5" Sharp from January 1996. However, my two old former gaming desktop PCs are enough to keep my tiny room warm! However, it sucks during the hot times (can go up to 90F degrees!).

Prez wrote on Jan 7, 2014, 10:17:
I've never really given 2 shits about Rodman one way or another - I've always just accepted his weirdness as a freak being freaky. Not hurting me so who cares? He seems to like the chubby baby-faced psychopath currently tyrannincally reigning over the enigmatic North Korea, but whatever. I kind of get his anger with the media - they are such shameless whoring hacks it's pathetic - but he probably should have never done the conference in the first place. I think I even sort of get his point with the visits to North Korea, which is almost scary.
I never liked that guy in NBA, Celebrity Apprentice, etc.

If you can't use the game as a platform to sell hats, keys, cards, backgrounds, emoticons and other useless geegaws it's not worth making.

I'd pay for an Alyx. erm, I mean... um.. nevermind.
Portal gun and GLaDOS for me.
