Rented "The Prestige" the other day. That one's worth seeing.

They filmed part of Death Proof here in Austin at this little convenience store next door to where I ate breakfast every week. I couldn't believe the amount of equipment they had. They had a sweet black and yellow Charger parked in the front and they put up a fake billboard ad which was posted right next to the store. A friend of mine had the opportunity to go to lunch with Tarantino since they used his parking lot for all of their buses.

We switched to Royal Canin www.royalcanin.us about a year ago. Because it's a premium food we pay more per bag, but they have food blends specifically formulated for certain breeds (we have a black lab) and now with the recall list growing, I'm glad made the switch from Nutro.

read the article to see the pricing and go to adobe's website for more information on the different bundles

I read the article, thank you very much. The pricing is not for the US and it's the first pricing that I've seen posted which is most likely the reason why it's considered news.

before posting stupid comments here.

I could probably tell you the same thing. Thanks for your advice. . .

if you really were a graphic designer, you should know by now that creative suite IS a bundled package of software.

Sorry, let me restate. Multiple bundled packages. Photoshop CS3 Extended? c'mon. . . They've already made Photoshop Elements, Premiere Elements, now apparently they're either stripping down the full versions or there's a big update that would warrant more money.

AS a graphic designer, it's a bit irritating to update ever other year. I have both CS2 and the full Production Studio CS2 and Studio MX 2004, I will be interested to see what the upgrade price will be.

Bundled packages? Looks like Adobe has been taking some advice from Microsoft. This isn't good news for us graphic designers. . .

Unless the Windows name is retired. *doubtful* With technology and the software to run that technology always advancing I'm not sure how a company can claim that it's the last unless it's from the company itself. . .

man. . . first one I've been able to do without any help. Usually I don't have much time to figure these sort of games out, but it being Christmas there isn't a whole lot going on after noon. Behind the curve and saw Fun with Dick and Jane. I liked it, thought it was funny.

no. . . my original post was not to a) start an argument or b) say "haha! look at you losers with a messed up soundcard!". If you actually looked a little bit closer at my post, it was more about how childish it is to throw a foul-mouthed tantrum over something as silly as a sound card. Does that not sound odd or strange to you?

You can feel bad for me all you want but I frequent this website for both informational purposes by way of the links Blue posts and also by the forums to see if anyone has anything intelligent to say about the links or products posted.

To address your comment about people having the right to express their displeasure about something. First thing, does it actually require the amount of bad language that most people who post this site actually use? It comes off as very unintelligent and whiney. Second, I don't actually hear people "asking" for help, it sounds more like begging for attention by yelling unnecessarily. I guess I'm the sucker since I gave them (or you) attention. I won't make that mistake again. . .

BTW - If you want actual help with a problem, please ask for it, don't think kicking and screaming about hating someone or something will have people come running to your aid.

I usually don't post on this site since it's usually one argument after another. But how sad is it that someone can get so worked up over something so trivial as a sound card? I mean, c'mon, really. . . Is it that big of a deal to get so mad that you actually 'hate' an entire company?

I, personally, have a Audigy 2 and have had Creative sound cards since the original SBPro. And have had no problems whatsoever. Game performance was always good for me and compatibility was far better than the old Turtle Beach card I replaced with a SB16 years ago. I take that back, I remember the one time my card messed up was because I jacked with Windows enough that the drivers got screwed up. That was my own fault, not Creative's.

I feel bad for you that it takes a small press release to get you that upset.

I live about 8 miles away from Grapevine, 8.5 miles to the resort itself and I hadn't heard anything about this. I must be getting old. . . either that or I just don't care.

Well, hello Mr. Ethnocentric. This was not an invitation to preach about how Christianity is sooo much better than all other religions. Take your incorrect assertions and your incorrect ideals and peddle them elsewhere.

Oh, and...

Fuck you and your fucking Bible!

wow. . . it's been a long time since I came back to the forum and what do I find? The same group of close-minded, anti-everything, "I-can't-think-anything-beyond-what-the-'all-knowing'-internet-tells-me-to-think", disrespectful bunch of children that I left here with.

God forbid (oh dear, I said "God" *gasp*) someone actually say they have a religious belief without everyone thinking they're preachin' to the masses. What a bunch of sensitive little cry-babies. Guess I'll have to wait it out another 800 billion kajillion years, maybe "natural selection" will weed out all the jerks in here.

It's funny how people are so quick to jump the guy who has religious beliefs claiming they're intruding on their beliefs, but never actually come out and say what their belief is. What a joke. . .

Mostly for the non-single guys, but still embraced by all

Here in Dallas, word is getting around of a new holiday falling on Leap Day, February 29; a holiday I am quickly embracing. The holiday is mostly for the guys who shell out time, money and creativity for that hallmark day of Valentine's year after year. So, our reward for our hard work, besides a satisfied woman, is a day dedicated to men once every four years. General census from the ladies I've talked to claim that it's a fair, recognizable holiday. Sweet!

That's great and all, but here's the catch-22 that I see with this:
Ladies who do not feel they received a Valentine's day equal or greater than their expectations, we as men, can fully expect a very upset girlfriend or wife and, in result, be expected to shell out more money, time and creativity to make them happy making the whole event far more expensive and time-consuming; this is common knowledge. However, if we as men do not receive the attention we think we deserve on this once-in-four-years event, we are expected, by the ladies, to "get over it, it's not that big of a deal. Be a man!" Not fair by any means, but it's common knowledge.

I intend to still try to milk this day for all it's worth, the best I can expect from my girl is to not get in an argument since I can pull the "Day of the Man" card if there's any bit of tension. I believe it's a hard-earned day, it's free so I say take advantage for all it's worth!

Spread the word!!!

Welp. . . I finally made a decision on what motherboard to buy. I went back and forth between Abit (for price) and Asus (for quality), and decided I'd get the most expensive Socket A motherboard that Fry's sold; the DFI LanParty NFII Ultra B. It's up and running now, no hiccups whatsoever and seems rock solid. It has some add-ons that I'm glad came with it:

-Round IDE cables instead of the wide ribbon
-Front panel in the 5.25" bay (my case doesn't have any front hookups for USB or 1394)
-SATA (I don't know how to hook it up, but is nice to know it's included)
-Travel Straps in case I want to move my box somewhere else safely

I haven't run any tests or anything as of yet, but so far I'm extremely impressed with how easy the install was and how solid it seems to be running; well worth the extra money in my eyes. It just better last longer than the one year my old Gigabyte board did.

Do like my buddy did and get married on Valentine's Day. Genius, I tell ya, pure genius! It's the very definition of killing two birds with one stone.

Actually my girlfriend is at a wedding in Cabo, Mexico this weekend. My 'bird' is temporarily delayed, we'll be celebrating V-day tomorrow night. Flying solo tonight though!

My only advice is grow up or kill yourself. Either way you do the world a favor and make everyone happy, see you CAN make people happy you losers!

wow, hmm. . . great advice. I'm sure feelin' the love.

I am snowed in! First snow here in over a year(that sticks), weee!

Same here in Dallas, it snowed most of the day, about 4 inches and now it's all melted. It was the first time my dog (black lab) has seen snow; she didn't know what to think!

*psst*
Don't bother with the AthlonXP. Go for the Athlon64 3000+ or 3200+!

I know, I know, I'd kill for a 64 system, but. . . I can't afford it right now. I would but I'm going to be buying a very expensive piece of jewelry in the next month or so. . .*gulp*

I appreciate all the advice, I'm going up to Fry's tomorrow to have them test out my current board and I'll probably get the Asus board, my tax refund should be coming in tomorrow. Gigabyte has kind of left a bad taste in my mouth crapping out on me in one year, that was AFTER I took the first one back because it didn't work at all.

I've done some research on the current mb's out there and have narrowed it down to three. . . they've all got the specs I'm looking for, but don't know which makes the best quality board. I had a Gigabyte board and it died in a little over a year; never had an Asus or DFI. Would like some insight from everyone who's leading the race. There is a $30 difference between Gigabyte and the rest. I'd be willing to put up the $30 for good quality as opposed to having to go through all this in another year. Links are below, I appreciate any advice.
