Seriously looking at this to be a basic "carry all" for work and my own writing. Gaming, movies, storage, etc. won't be the focus - just basic interweb and journal writing. Of course I'd dump Windows and throw Ubuntu or Mint on there if for no other reason than just the sake of being the slightly anti-establishment jerk that I am. :lolbeat:

I also found a VESA adapter for my current LCD (the T260HD doesn't have a VESA mount built into it), so my need to upgrade that has been delayed yet again. That's always nice. :lol:

In other news that no one could care about :lol: I'm vacillating back to the idea of "rackifying" my computer. When I did that little sketch of my printer shelf dealie I put my synth module in there and looked at how much room I could save if I recased my computer in a decent rack box instead of another tower case. My workstation table would be trimmed by a foot and the floor-space my printer cabinet wouldn't grow at all, so it could be pretty profitable from a room-savings standpoint. It won't be as cool looking, but there are fan grilles on the front, so I can still have some blue, green or red LED fans for a little bit o' bling.

I want the Habey RPC-900. It's not freakishly deep (21.5" front to back, not counting the handles), but it's deep enough I don't have to replace my huge 1000W PSU and 10.5" long graphics card with something shorter to comply with the internal dimensions. I will have to replace my CPU's heatsink-fan due to height restrictions, and I'll be using a Noctua NH-U9B SE2 92mm unit. :chug:

So has anybody seen the new line of food at Denny's restaraunts? The CEo must frequent our site a lot, there is new promotion going on right now called
Baconalia! They even have a bacon maple sundae, along with bacon meatloaf, and bacon pancakes!

The closest Denny's is almost sixty miles away from me. :blink: I think the "bacon mania" is something of a fad. Bacontarians are definitely benefitting from it. Just down the road from our shop is a little coffee hut that sells "bacon 2 go" with their coffee. :nice:

Maple syrup on ice cream is very good (tried it thirty years ago :blink:…although it wasn't with bacon). Bacon IN pancakes seems like a no-brainer as a lot of people have bacon WITH their pancakes. And bacon in meatloaf would be just as awesome as bacon in/on/under your burger. I approve of this new menu. :D

hey guys.

well i may have just seriously screwed things up. me and my fiance's mom got into a huge fight over the phone. it got really bad. bad enough to where half of it got blacked out of my memory.

My fiance's mom is extremely over protective. she refuses to let Virginia(fiance) get her driver's lisence(she is almost 21), she will not take her to get her G.E.D., or get a job. this woman has some very serious issues. she has hated me ever since i started dating Virginia. when we first started dating she said it was a sin to date people in wheelchairs. and everytime i would pick her up to go on a date or come chill at my apartment her mom would set a 10:00 curfew. the curfew i didnt mind. but then all of a sudden her mom restricted me from picking her up every week. she said Virginia could only see me every two weeks.

and earlier today Virginia an her mom got into an arguement whn Virginia said that whn she gets a job she plans to move out. and her mom said "to where? with that f***ing cripple?". that got me really ****ed off so i sent her mom a message on face book that read: do you have some kind of problem with me? i get the feeling you really dont like me. is it because im dating Virginia? or is it because im in a wheelchair? and what's the deal with only being able to see Virginia every two weeks? thats crazy. and why wont you take her to get her driver's lisence? you seem way over protective. she is an adult now so trying to control her like she is 5 years old isnt going to work. i love virginia very much. i would do everything in my power to make her happy. you should be happy that she has a caring loving man in her life. i may be a cripple but dammit i have feelings and can do everything a normal person can
. she saw this and got into a fight with virginia threatening to kick her out. well Virginia called me crying asking if there was some way i could come pick her up. as much as i wanted to i couldnt because i have no valid lisence and my van is tore up.

Her mom then got on the phone and started screaming at me. she was saying to me why i sent her the message so i tried to explain everything.
well the more she kept yelling the madder i got. then when i told her mom i asked virginia to marry me her mom went ballistic. she started screaming asking how i was going to provide for virginia and asked how i was going to buy food and pay bills. i told her i could get a job. she then asked why i didnt have one yet and i told her no one is hiring in my area. after that my anger went through the roof and i unleashed hell onto her mom. i forgot what all i said but i remember saying to her mom "go f**k yourself" and then i hung up.

my anger has ruined my life once again. this is the same anger that got me thrown in the looney bin last year. i fear that her mom may not let her ever see me again. i dont know what to do right now. im so numb right now. my hand is shaking and im sick to my stomach. i just dont understand how someone's parent can be so cruel. i just dont get it.

well sorry for the long rant. i just had to get this off my chest.

04-07-2011, 04:12 AM
Damn...

Gotta chill out man, obviously her mother is being overprotective but its a fairly normal behaviour for a parent(being protective at least).

That doesnt justify prejudices against you, and obviously Virginia chose you regardless of her mother - seems like her mom needs to let a go a bit, but I dont think theres anything you can say or do to make that happen.

OSM, time for a deep breath bud...In with Jesus, Out with the Devil!

If I was in your position, and no matter how much it hurt, I'd let the situation go. If Virginia truly loves you and she is 21 yrs old she will figure it out on her own to be able to see you. If you keep fighting this battle it will never end, you will be fighting this your entire life and that will not make for a happy marriage. Virginia needs to step up to her Mom and take control of her own life, that is the only you two could be together and actually have it work.

+1,000. As flawed as it is, your sweetheart's relationship with her mother is "her deal". No matter how much you lover her, any changes in that relationship has to be her decision and her responsibility. Patience, grasshopper.

well as if my luck couldnt get any worse it did. while at the doc's office today my van got hit. some woman in a suburban tried to get into the space next to to the van and the bumper of her car hit the rear quarter panel and front edge of the wheel well of the right rear tire. the quarter is creased in a little and the front edge of the wheel well has a nice sized dent. it wasnt too bad. no issus with tire clearence or anything. when i saw i i started laughing. i really needed a good laugh today and i got it. the poor woman was almost in tears but i told her not to worry about it. the dent just add some character to the old van. didnt do a police report or get insurance involved. i aint gonna worry about it.

Its a good thing you have such a sense of humor. Your relationship reminds of this guy's I was in the Army with. He was part of the McCoy family of the hatfield Mccoy fued, anyway as so many comedies have been based he was in love with a girl who was part of the hatfield bunch. Her mother beat him in the head with her high heel shoe, he ended up with 12 stitches and she ended up in court for assault. Not a good situation! Like I said OSM let it go, if it was meant to be, love will find a way...

Now back to our regularly scheduled mandom. I watched Due Date the other nite with RD Jr. and that Zach Galifianakis dude. There was some serious laughable stuff in that movie, Downey's "portrayed" arrogance is actually a little disturbing at parts but all in all definitely good for a laugh.

however we had a problem today:huh::huh::huh::huh:, pulling out of a junction, smoke started coming out of the heater control, cigar lighter area of the dash

i pulled over, got the wife and kids out, and called the fire brigade

luckily the fire stoped when i cut the ignition, the fire brigade checked it out, and called the R.A.C. for me

the R.A.C. came out, and pulled the melted fuse out and cut the wires to the heater controls and lighter, we then drove the car home

so this weekend i'm gona pull the dash out, and have a look whats happening

It's not all bad though, that's just the drivers side so if i stick a really fat chick in the passanger side i should be good.

Still also in the midlands I've seen a group 10 yr old kids walking down the street with a lamppost (when they get decomissioned a different dept deals with taking it away than the ones who take it out of the ground so they get left at the roadside for a while).

I need some help identifying an electronic component, guys. I am in need of an IEC cable extension unit that's a little different. The doowhacky in question is circled in red below…

73803

Finding IEC extension cables is really easy, but I need one that can be bolted on like the one in the picture. I've discovered anything can be found online as long as you ask the right question, and so far I haven't been able to do that. What's the technical term for this thing?

That's the normal "3 Pin IEC320 C14" cable we use over here.

Howdy fellas! Long time no see. I figured I should drop in and see how everyone is doing.

I got married just after Christmas and the time since then has been spent merging two lives. It's been fun but it hasn't left much time for many other things. I haven't worked on my RCs since Christmas, mostly because I can't even get to them right now. And even if I could, I don't have space to do anything. We realized pretty quick that my bachelor apartment isn't going to cut it.

We started looking at houses a little over a month and a half ago I suppose, and around the first week of April, we found the perfect house. It's in a quiet neighborhood and has a huge backyard with plenty of space for a vegetable garden and a small trail course that the missus has already approved. We close on the 29th and once we move, I'll have the space and the time to get back to work on some of my long-overdue projects.

I know I've missed a thing or two around here and I've looked around just enough to figure out a little and know that something happened and I guess that's all that's important. I never liked drama much anyway.

So tell me! How are things going for ya'll? I feel out of the loop.

NO! :p It must bolt on for it to be of any use to me. Plus that's a bare socket - I'm looking for an extension. I've found several computer cases that use them but I can't find a part number or a decent description of what the frack it is so I can get my own.

I do appreciate it, though. :chug:

I know it's an IEC C14 3-prong-aroo. :nice: I probably have twenty devices in my room alone that use them. What I'm looking for is a technical name for this variety. It simply an extension cord that plugs into a device's male end (in my instance, my PSU) and it has another male end with some kind of fastening regime, like bolts or screws. In the example I showed it allows the computer's PSU to be located up in front of the case, but still allows a power connection at the back. There isn't an electronics supplier within 60 miles of me, so I can't just go down the road and poke around in their bins. :(

I've been able to find several of them that do this online EXCEPT no bolt-on setup up. The kind that screws into a panel seems to elude me. :confused:

I have some pics from the listing, but nothing I've taken myself with our stuff in it. Won't have those 'til next month at the earliest. Here's a few to give you an idea though.

The Junipers right near the house are coming out the day we move in, most likely. They're way too close to the house. The cedars on the side will need to come down eventually as well since they're dying.
http://402.mlsimages.movoto.com/064/11560664_0.jpg

The red room is the dining room. Through the door in that room is the kitchen. The french doors lead outside.
http://402.mlsimages.movoto.com/064/11560664_2.jpg

Looking back to the front of the house (living room) from the dining room.
http://402.mlsimages.movoto.com/064/11560664_7.jpg

This is standing in the hall (you can still see the dining room to orient yourself here) looking towards the back bedroom.
http://402.mlsimages.movoto.com/064/11560664_8.jpg

Kitchen!

Bathroom
http://402.mlsimages.movoto.com/064/11560664_16.jpg

Back of the house. The tree/shrub thing will have to come down before too long since it's too close to the house for my liking.
http://402.mlsimages.movoto.com/064/11560664_17.jpg

And the all-important backyard with cellar, covered parking, and a storage building that's just out of frame to the right.
http://402.mlsimages.movoto.com/064/11560664_18.jpg

The 5-year plan will see all but one tree (the large pecan in the back) coming down and being replaced with a few oaks and a maple or two. We're also planning a garden in the back corner of the yard where we'll grow peppers, onions, garlic, tomatoes, herbs, melons, and whatever else we can get away with growing.

Not pictured is a 3rd bedroom/den that we'll probably use as an entertainment area for now.

The house was built in 1938 and updated and renovated to the point that it looks practically new. We got it for a great price and I'd say that we got awesomely lucky for our first house.

Who da hell is Jake? :thinking:

If I recall correctly, it's all been remodeled over the last 4 years. The only thing that isn't brand-spanking-new is the oven which appears to be from the 1950's or 60's and no longer in working order, and the windows in the back bedroom which look to be single-pane aluminum from the 1970's.

Due to the seller's need to move out of state for a new job, this house was priced to sell quickly at $87,500 USD. That's not a whole lot lower than other houses this size, but because of the improvements, it's probably worth $95K. We'll find out just how much it's worth once the appraisal has finished.

Yeah, we've already been discussing the need for more counter space in the bathroom, but I think my wife has decided she'll just get herself a small vanity to sit in the opposite corner.

I can tell a difference in tones in my car compared to my dads. Both are buick centurys, his 2 years newer than mine. His only got 4 6 1/2" 2 ways, and mine has the 6 speaker upgrade, 6 1/2" components up front and 6 1/2" 2 ways in the rear. Mine is like night and day difference. I used to play some Eminem in his, and the bess was terrible, mine can handle the bass much better, as well as the tweeters can push out the high tones quite well. I've started listening to a lot of dubstep lately. Its something different, and really growing on me :lol:

It's a little too human looking, but I believe that's the point. These apes are to show near-human levels of intelligence and comprehension, so from a design standpoint an eerily human look would be compulsory. Weta kicks everyone's fat fanny when it comes to the assault on the Uncanny Valley. They're better than Digital Domain (speaking of whom, I ought to get my Tron: Legacy review up :p), better than ILM, and INFINiTELY better than that gaggle of dorks at Sony Imageworks (they didn't use to be dorks, but thanks to the formerly-cool-currently-idiotic Robert Zemeckis all they can do now are representations of people that look like hollow, dead puppets). :nice: Having said that, I will not see this movie unless at gunpoint. I have seen every PotA film, and I decided that the self-loathing amplified to perverse levels that was the motivation behind the films weren't a productive thing for me to partake. Avatard and similar flicks fall in the same category. I "get" the cautionary tales they supposedly represent, but, honestly, I've had my fill of all of it. :lol:

Speaking of Weta and asskicking, one rumor is that Nimoy might also be the voice for Smaug. That would kick so much *** that there would be a worldwide *** shortage for the next ten years.

Hey Guys, has anyone here played 'Dead Rising 2' for the PS3? I just want to know what the game plays like and whether i should get it for a laugh or not. Also, can you play it online with a friend?

I love the Dyson vacuum cleaner in this video.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ievjHzSB_ek

Ian,
Don't know how I missed this, but I just finished the game yesterday. It's definitely fun and somewhat campy. I liked the ability to build combo weapons and also make mixed drinks to provide energy or other abilities. I enojyed the storyline even though I had never played the first one. I'll give you a quick list of pros and cons as I see them.

Pros
Storyline
Weapon combo system - lots of fun to find new ways to mutilate zombies.
Some of the bosses (psychopaths) can be quite challenging unless you level up.
I found the side missions (escorts) to be a lot of fun even though they were often similar. The characters you rescue often have funny personalities and backstories.
The first time through the game I got to a point where I couldn't beat a boss and it allows you to restart the storyline, but keep all your experience and money. The second time through was a bit easier and I could manage my time more effectively.


Cons.
Loooong Load times -- I know I'm spoiled by some games, but it was annoying to have it load every time I went into a different area.

You are bound by the main missions in the game so you don't get as much time to explore the entire environment / do side missions / blow up ridiculous amounts of zombies for hours on end.

They say they improved the targeting system in this game, but I still had a hard time with the shooting mechanics, but maybe it's just because of all the time I've spent with the black ops controls.

Overall.
On my first time through the game I was frustrated with a lot of the side missions and bosses because I always felt rushed and underpowered. Once I got stuck and was able to restart the story keeping my levels and money I enjoyed it much more. I was also able to attack the main missions and side missions in a much more organized fashion. I finished the game yesterday and did a little googling to find that there are at least two or three alternate endings depending upon decisions you make during the game. So I'm replaying it for a third time now to try and get the other main alternate ending.

There is also and online coop mode where you can hook up with friends from PSN and play through the game. I haven't played that mode with anyone yet, but can imagine it would make some of the boss battles a little easier.

I'm definitely thinking of getting the first one and checking out the DLC for Dead Rising 2. Sorry for the excessively long post, I've been working on this game all week so it's all pretty fresh in my mind.

Jake

The whole child protective services is messed up here and over there obviously. For example the crap you guys wnet through for simple everyday things that happen, most of us call them accidents. Then here about 20 miles from I live, a handicapped girl stuck in a wheel chair was abused violently her whole life by her mother who also let the step brother rape her continuously. The CPS were notified several times and every time theydid an investigation they found nothing wrong, yet it was the other sublings in from the family making the complaints. WTF? So now the girl was suffocated to death by her mother and the government thinks they might need to change the way they investigate reports, NO SH*T!

They've had to evacuate towns and shut down highways because the fires are spreading too fast and getting too big and out of control to risk it. We've had temperatures in the high 90's and winds in the 30-50mph range for about a week straight.

Just in case anyone was wanting more information about the Texas wildfires, I dug up a few facts.

Year-to-date we have seen 6,044 fires that have consumed 1,787,363 acres (roughly 2793 square miles (bigger than the state of Delaware)) of forest and grassland and have consumed 743 structures and resulted in an unconfirmed number of casualties including 2 firemen that died in the line of duty.

These fires are possibly the worst in the state's history and as a result, the state of Texas has asked for federal assistance and has dispatched a team of 4 Modular Airborne Fire Fighting Systems (MAFFS) which are retrofitted C-130 cargo planes. The MAFFS have set up base at Dyess AFB in Abilene, Texas where I live and have never before been used. Also seeing duty is a DC-10 firefighting plane as well as numerous spotters and helicopters.

This is one of the retrofitted C-130 MAFFS.

+1. Same with erfkwayx. If an eight-pointer or bigger happened up here, regardless of how many people were killed or how much property damage was done, there would be one or two major reports AT THE MOST and then nothing. (Wait, one did in 2002. (http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eqinthenews/2002/uslbbl/) :rolleyes:) But if a 4.5 shakes the rainbow window banners of a few fudge packers or doughnut bumpers in San Fran, it's THE BIG headline IN EVERY major news outlet for a week straight.

So I watched the movie Skyline last night, it was disappointing I can't even write a review. I will say this, the first 1/3 of the flick was cool, and some serious effects going on, the next third was still ok but started to go off to WTF territory, by the final third it was like a bad accident where you can't peel your eyes from but you know you should.

I thought it was good but didn't like the ending, it was as if this movie was an intro to the next one which will have more action? That's what it seemed anyway. I wrote about it a few pages back.

On a Better note, Troy Legacy was awesome, watched that the other night, twice:)

On a lighter note....

That is one hell of a spider, i can't believe you?? thought it necessary to leave the room and then come back with a camera! I would have left the house completely.

Ian, I must've missed your review, I thought the first half was decent, but after that it got way to into the WTF? situation. I did enjoy the whole thing with the brains however. I won't say anymore than that in case people haven't watched it yet.

I didn't care for Skyline either, the only nice part of the movie was it had Scottie Thompson in it, she's a fox :Happybounce: especially in her role of 'Jeanne Benoit' on NCIS :drool:

On another note, I just spent the last 4 hours replacing a exhaust manifold gasket, only to arc my pliers off my solenoid and kill it, so now the truck won't start. I don't mind that my stupidity killed it, but I really want to know if by replacing the gasket I plugged the exhaust leak. :rant:

No idea what it is... I pimped that straight from the Eluveitie forum. I have never seen anything like it. It is even bigger than those Camel spiders (which are scorpions anyway).

Hey Rag, I wonder if the writers of Thor have had the mind to name the giant of fire sent to purge humanity Sultur or if it is a coincidence and they didn't look that hard into Norse mythology? I heard an interview with one of the female leads today, she refered to it as "The Destroyer". If they have neglected to stick to the tune, I might grumble. But, the expulsion from Asgard scene seems to include the trunk of yggdrasill. Hopes up for a good movie.

Probably will see it before the long weekend is out.


Oh and Ian, Tron Legacy was good. I'm glad they did it right.

Luckily the part was cheap and a quick fix, and I managed to plug the exhaust leak!

And the RROD isn't too bad, because it still have a warranty so microsoft takes another one for the team!

It's called Destroyer because that's what they called it in the comics. Marvel was playing it pretty fast and loose with the original mythology in the comics to begin with, so if you factor the additional inaccuracy the movie provides you can imagine what wackiness they'll end up with…like casting a black guy as Heimdal. D'OH - they already did that. :p The guys from Collider are saying what they'e seen kicks but in a serious way, but in my mind any movie version of Thor should have been a non-Marvel produced "historical fantasy" film like The Lord of the Rings. THAT would be my perfect Thor flick.

Well, Loki's a Jǫtunn, too, so what? :poke: :lol:

Oh, and to Primus - glad to hear you got your RROD dealt with in a quick and (more importantly) cheap manner. :nice:

It's probably the only "Vader Kid" parody that's not stupid. I loved it. :lol: I'll probably do like I always do - wait for the video release, blow $30 to $35 on the BluRay version, and then regret not waiting for it to drop below $20 where the price-to-movie-quality ratio would be more appropriate. :thinking: The only movie I want to see in the theaters this year is TF3.

If the google earth car drove past my house I would probably do something similar. But I live a bit out of the way from the main road through town, so I guess they'll never pass my house :p

Say, I was able to do some work on my rackmount computer case yesterday. And not just drawings - I actually did some physical work with real matter. Probably didn't mention this before, but I'm not buying a case for two reasons: one, I can't afford it at the moment; and two, by building one I can construct it to fit the specs I need.

What do you guys think? Should I post that stuff up here in BMAR or should I take it to my Hackintoshificationabulanism™ thread?

While we're on the techy theme, my Nokia E72 gave up delivering emails, apart from which I'm sick of it crashing every day, so I sacked it and found one of these cheap(ish) on eBay......

Gotta say it is an amazing piece of kit, the AMOLED screen has to be seen to be believed, and the Android OS is genius. I'm instantly converted. Love it!! :wub:
(be nice if the battery lasted more than 24hrs, but that's a small price to pay for such awesome functionality - battery life should be improved with the Gingerbread 2.3.3 update that should be officially available soon! :nice: )
Yes, I know the official leaked roms are already out there, but I am too scared of bricking my phone to root it! I'll just wait for the OTA update!! :huh:

Ragnarok
04-24-2011, 04:19 PM
I have an LG Cookie, too. It's been okay. Biggest problems for me are three things:
Typing out a word only to have it deleted as I hit the space bar to move to the next word. This is steam-coming-out-of-my-ears maddening when I have to do it three or four times with a modestly big word like "coincidentally" or "apocryphal".
:kick:
Attempting to do anything more complicated than Facebook on the internet, ie. accessing my email, logging onto this forum, etc. It's worse than trying to access the web with an Etch-a-Sketch.
:kick: :kick:
Unlocking itself without me really doing anything.
:kick: :kick: :kick:

Photos suck on it, too. I've heard OLED displays of any kind are pretty rad. I'm a mostly-fan of Samsung gear, too, so I'd say you got a pretty good unit there, Leo.

Gotta say, though, my next phone won't have any complex capabilities beyond texting or basic picture takin'. I'd rather pack a not-too-wimpy netbook for everything related to internet stuff when I'm not at home. It's better for a phone to not do anything (beyond calling n' junk) than do lots of stuff halfassed.

totaly agree rag.i also find the on screen keyboard way too small, the kwerty you get when you tilit it i mean. new iphone 5 is released when my contract ends, thats certainly tempting- but i want a 'big' phone,having big hands and all, so the htc desire lends itself to me more. it just seems to be more suited to me, in terms of- everything.
i do like apple gear, but the android Os's are getting better and better now.

Ragnarok
04-24-2011, 04:40 PM
Yeah, I have trouble with the keyboard, too. I have to use the stylus or the end of a mechanical pencil to type. Fingers are too thick. My little bro got a Samsung slider that has a mechanical keyboard. I would MUCH rather have something like that. I had the option of getting that phone when I chose the one I ended up with, but the demo model was periwinkle blue. I thought about it for a while and said to myself, "This is a girl's phone," and chose the LG. My bro shows me his phone and I told him I was looking at that same model myself, but didn't like the color. He told me that the girly blue ones are only the demo units - they issue you a black phone every time. :facepalm: His phone can receive and send emails with no problem (mine can, too, I guess, but I can't seem to get the POP setup correct) and it will view YouTube vids. Oh well, live and learn. :lol: My contract comes up at the beginning of next year and I'll see what's available then. For the most part this has been a decent phone and I'm very grateful to have it, but sometimes it's a bit of a pain.
