Out of the Blue

The weather is not being quite as uncooperative as we'd expected so far, and it looks like we are going to be able to get in some outdoor activities to tire out the little smurfs. We actually got a little of dusting of snow overnight, but after worrying we were not going to be able to get out and play, I won't get too disappointed that there isn't enough snow to make a snowman... that'll come soon enough.

See Heat, or the horrific actual bank robbery in L.A. a few years back that it seemingly inspired for examples of the problems caused by armored felons.

I ended up staying home sick that day and worked in Orange County, CA (near LA) at the time. Saw it all live from the helicopter feed broadcast by a local news channel - thought it was a movie at first, then realized it was live. It was wild, especially knowing it was a live feed....

Igor, would you give me a hand with the bags?

why in hell is it illegal to "possess" body armor?

Because the police like their weapons to have an effect when they use them.

Over the years, he was wounded in shootings and arrested on a veritable laundry list of charges, including menacing security officers, illegally possessing body armor....

I don't know what the living conditions are like in Russia, but you might find that there won't be too many women willing to live in a van parked across the street from Blue's house...

Sad to hear about such an early death, but I would highly suspect alcohol/drug abuse greatly attributed to his death.


I was less familiar with his music than his run-ins with the law. I was also under the impression he'd cleaned up a bit recently, though I could be wrong...

I found it ironic he died two days before his 36th birthday. Anytime someone dies that young, it's sad...

Nooooo way! ODB, a drug addict?! You must be wacked out on goofballs or something!

On a more somber note, sad to hear about this as I enjoyed some of his older stuff, and I've never really been into rap. It was pretty out there.

Rest in peace mate.

I mean 6000 posts over 7 years.... that's 2,555 days.

And that's not taking into account that I registered in 1999, which proves your point by 2 more years.



Should we start up a paypal account for you to get you a mail order bride or sumthing?

As much as a remarkable feat that is, are you sure it's not a cry for help?

That's 2.3483 posts a day, including holidays.

I mean if ya want I'm sure someone on the boards can call Dr Phil and we can set up an intervention or something. I'd call myself but I have enough issues and I don't need Dr Phil to bring them up on National TV.

And also congrats.

BTW how many keyboards have you gone through in 7 years?

21. Re: Doom 3 key? Nov 13, 2004, 19:43 Krovven
 
In your Doom folder there is a file called "doomkey" Open it with notpad or wordpad. That is your serial #. Problem is, Doom 3 has an additional 2 digits at the end but they aren't displayed in that file for me. I'll see if they are located anywhere else. Registry came up empty when I searched for the serial.

20. Doom 3 key? Nov 13, 2004, 19:33 Ray Marden
 
Is there a way to grab the Doom 3 key from the files located on my computer? I can no longer find my Doom 3 box, I can only speculate that it got lost in the move, and I obviously do not want to purchase a second copy of it. Unfortunately, the box had both the case with the key and my receipt.

I do currently have the game installed and can play it, but I am out of luck if I ever want to uninstall the game, I format my drive, etc.

I could care less about playing the game online; I only played the non-single-player campaign and, possibly in the futue, the expansion packs.

Wondering if anybody can help,
Ray Stupid me and stupid box!

Either the Steam forums are being DoS'ed or they just collapsed under the weight of thousands of fanboys refreshing the thread about the Steam status bar dipping (suggesting content servers being taken offline, possibly for an update).

Pretty funny stuff, and this status bar has me all worked up. I really wish I could connect to WoW right now, just to get my mind off of this stupid thing..

It's not even worth it. He's just a troll like Josh. Hell, it probably is Josh. Don't feed the trolls.

WoW lag is brutal as hell, but it has to be done. Shouldn't last much longer.
