Have you pulled the trigger on some AC yet? Don't know how you stand it, especially at night.

Wow just saw this: http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/43866337?gt1=43001

It's a shame people like this can't get help that sticks. What a waste.

It's not just for Bob the Hippie, it's for you, your grandkids and their grandkids. It has nothing to do with mother gaia or greenpeace.

Fucking A! I have never understood nor will I ever understand why the environment is a Red or Blue issue. We all live on the same fucking planet!

The benefits of the space program are felt in everything from medicine to jet design to plant growth. It's pretty damned important and the cost on a per tax payer basis is pretty reasonable if you look at the overall returns we get instead of just the landmark moments.

What did Tyson say in that clip the other day, 5 or .5 cents on the dollar is what NASA cost tax payers? What we need is a new space race to spark interest again. Wonder what happens if another country starts planning a trip to Mars?

That Tyson video is depressing... because he's right.

Right as rain. The infrastructure in this country is falling apart with little hope of getting it fixed.

If I remember right didn't Blue drive by the accident shortly after it happened? Just a tragic loss all the way around. I am shocked they have managed to stay together.

Googled grackles and they do look spooky. One of the pictures reminded me of the movie The Birds. That movie scared the shit out of me as a kid. I still remember the lady that had her eye pecked out. Yesh!

Has anyone played with the DarkPlaces mod? I tried it but only get about 2 fps. I am thinking my 4850 should do better than that.

Here is the link to the mod: http://icculus.org/twilight/darkplaces/

Actually I think it goes a bit beyond that, to the extent of being a bit sinister. From what I know, the Feds have measures in place to try to prevent local municipalities from setting up "speed traps," and can withhold federal money from places that derive too much income from speeding tickets. This is one reason there is such willingness to negotiate them down to non-moving violations for those who appear in court, and why so much of what is paid for tickets is listed as court/administrative fees rather than the actual fine. Someone who is a cop (Bats?), lawyer, or judge can surely explain this better than I can, if not outright correct it, but that it my understanding.

That sounds right to me because I have always wondered why there were not people pulled over all the time on the interstate. The only drivers going 70 are the ones that are over 70. Seems like cites/states could have a budget surplus just in speeding tickets.

Maybe the movie Saturday the 14th will be on tomorrow.

No way any Star Trek list can not have City on the Edge of Forever as the best episode. I had that discussion many times with coworkers and we always agreed it was the best ever.

Now since he put Mirror, Mirror on the list he should have found room for In a Mirror, Darkly from Enterprise. That just kicked ass for more than one reason.

That Walmart link was cool. Great OotB today!

Blue I have done the very thing you are talking about. I still had an old SB AWE 32 laying around and a Monster 3D card. I did manage to find drivers for them but remembering how to get DOS loaded up high and all that jazz was tough. I put it all in a Abit board with a P3 750. I have a hard drive with DOS 6.22 and one with Win98 on it and just swap them out when I want to play different things. I love playing GLdoom! It looks so good with the 3Dfx card. It just don't look that good on my main machine. I even broke out my old Colorado tape drive and restored a bunch of old games. My wife had a fit to play Lemmings!

I don't have trouble believing the possibility that Bin Laden may have been killed in '01, nor do I have trouble entertaining the possibility that he's not really dead at all and this is a bunch of crap. But I also don't have trouble believing the possibility that things happened exactly the way the news reported them. I've become so naturally skeptical of absolutely everything that the most I can do concerning anything I can't verify with my own eyes is believe that it's possibly true. I can't ever bring myself to believe wholeheartedly anything anymore without personal verification. I don't know if I became this way on my own or the world made me this way, but either way I find it kind of sad.

IF Bin Laden is actually dead, and if this was still '01, I'd be cheering. But now this doesn't really register as any more than an interesting footnote; it's not like anything is really going to change anyway. I'm much older (in ways far more than the actual 10 years have physically aged me) and far more jaded and cynical now.

**Moved from another forum to be posted in a more relevant thread**

Damn you just described me to a T. I hate I am like that these days.

I really hope they release the pics of that dead SOB. I want to see his ass dead. I also wonder how much, if any, intelligence they recovered.

I still can not get over the period of time we all live in these days. I have tried to teach my kids that we live in a time of instant answers. Don't know something, google it and bingo, instant answer.
