So what you're saying you're pro-ODRM then? (Sorry, couldn't resist, Cutter)

I did. As well as hang out on BBS's. I considered starting an ISP business in 1995, I should have done it.

My wizard should be ready to take on Torment by the weekend... just need a few more pieces of gear with the right attributes.

Nah, I want legit licenses for computers I'll buy after October. Did this for XP years ago. Bought a three pack of OEM licenses, one of the smartest things I ever did.

In case you missed it - D3 is 19.99 at Blizz right now. Can't complain at that price point! Loot 2.0 is a really nice change.

As I said in another topic: The on-line requirement does totally blow chunks. But even though I dislike it and think Blizzard deserves to be punished for doing it. I can't say I'm sorry I bought it 19 days ago. True, the down time on Tuesdays for patches and some occasional lag really sucks -- still I have to say I enjoyed the hell out of it, to the tune of 117 hours played already.

I remember the first time I saw Mosaic in early 1994. Even then when there weren't a ton of places to go, and most were all text -- it was clearly awesome and seemed likely to only get better, which obviously it did.

I am so very seriously sick of winter.
60+ here yesterday. Today 1-3 inches of snow, low tonight of 10. Where the hell is spring?

It one of the things I always consider a plus for living in Phoenix, no one complains when your "lawn" is gravel. Too bad it's so damn hot there.

You know, I've been doing Fantasy Football since 1996, and I have a team I have rooted for since 1972, but I simply can't pay any attention to the sport prior to about 2 weeks before the start of the regular season...

This is what I wonder.. if I could have all my WoW memories from 6.5 years of playing the game selectively removed. And I tried it again now, would I be as entertained by it as I was back in mid December 2004? Hard to believe this summer will be three years since I gave it up.

Property in Detroit is a smart investment. I remember when my uncle bought some places in South Central LA back in the 90s, people said he was nuts but look at property values in those areas today. I'm looking into buying some commercial property in Detroit, it'll come back.
Sounds like a major gamble to me. You could be right, and you could be wrong. It's certainly possible a savvy, knowledgeable person could make a wise investment. However, I'm guessing a lot more people who think this decribes them, will lose money rather than make it. Good luck to you, sir.

I'm not particularly supportive of US military action in Ukraine either. However, I would say your analogy isn't quite correct since Ukraine has been an independent country since getting out from underneath the Soviet thumb in the early 1990s.

I think this is a great idea for awareness. I don't know how many times I've been out to dinner and seen people sitting across from each other engaged in very little to no conversation with their faces lit up by their phones. It's pretty sad.

Well, obviously they are texting EACH OTHER. That's just how the young generation communicates.

LOL! Yeah, really.

I'm surprised to see older people doing it too. Not the texting thing, but at dinner sitting across from each other staring at their phones. ....heck, maybe they're texting each other too, or their lovers. DOH!
Depends on how long you observe them... it is pretty common when I get together with my friends we will be talking about something and one of us goes to our phone to verify information. A quick glance and you might see several of us looking at our phones, but if you watched for a while you would see we are engaged in conversation.

That is true. However, since I never played D2 on Battle Net, it wasn't a problem.
