This is a fun-seeming topic.

I miss my favourite game in the world. =( It got shut down in November and I've been sad ever since.

The Internet holds nothing for me now! Nothing!!

Umm, how do I get those little icons under my avatar over there? <--
I should have a "Forum Veteran" a "10-Year Veteran" and a "Staff Member" icon... how do I puts them ups? U_U

Tanks...

I got a PM (that I just read now) in Feb of '09 from Jae Onasi saying I had recieved a Retired Staff Member award... O_o I'm assuming that's one of those little icons? I'm just not sure if I'm supposed to post 'em myself or not... heh, I'm so concerned about my icons... U_U;;

oh my! a blast from the past!


ed: the worst parts were two fold.

1)its seemingly more uncomfortable to get an enema from an attractive nurse

2) I didnt get any pictures or a copy of the video to give my boss if he asks for a dr's slip

yeah um after they fill your ass up with air(literally) all you are in the mood to do is crawl in a hole.

I did want to ask if she could milk the prostrate while she was back there but figured it was poor form

Hi, L.!

Another festival show at work. This one should have been relaxing for me... only 5 bands.

Ugh. Weird day. A lot of things went wrong... nothing major... but annoying.

The weather was lousy... and I felt like I was fighting a cold all day. Blah.

Well, Lent starts today. Nothing like forty days of fasting and repentance to give the soul a boost. Too bad there are no deserts around here...just about eight feet of snow on the ground

last night was awesome. all you can drink for $15.

my computer is destroyed..... i dont know how to fix it since its not even loading the taskbar. all i see is my desktop background, nothing more. ctrl alt delete doesn't work to restart it either.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

how many times do I have to type it?


SAFE MODE.

Turn off System Restore

get Microsoft Security Essentials and the newest defs on another computer and copy it over on a usbflash drive or burn a CD

you get to safe mode by hitting F8 during/just after POST on boot up and select it

system restore on XP, right click my computer, select properties, its on a tab there

West African drum and dance concert last night. Chaos... but could have been worse.

Slept through a meeting this morning. Oh well.

I've always told them not to schedule me for early-morning meetings when I have to work a concert the night before. Being there at 10 am is fine when you do a 9-5 shift... but I don't leave work until well after 11pm... and usually don't get home and to sleep until after 1am.

Being back at the subway platform at 8am the next morning so I can be on time for that isn't really a blast... not to mention at all fair to me.

they are all over torrents dude.

I have one I got from a Geek Squad'r. I hear they call home though if you let it have network access.


R15: do you get some lame boot screen? hit F2, F10, F12 and delete(not all at the same time) that should get you into the bios to turn off quickboot.

or just when you see the pretty gateway or wahtever logo hit F8 a bunch of times

My biggest problem with is with the mens team right now. In the last game he had a chance to draw to the 4 foot to be up 2 in the last end (very good position to be in) instead he tries a circus shot and winds up almost knocking his own rocks out. Then he ends up losing the game with a muffed shot that was not even close in the extra end.

Not good skip rock calls. But the problem is, HE is the skip, and in curling that is one step down from god

Another beef I have is the US Olympic teams qualified last year. Instead of having national qualifier BEFORE the Olympics (like January... or December) and getting a team that is hot right now, they choose a team and let them wait a year until they are stale and cooled down.

Oh... unlike the US teams. MY curling team won tonight. in Six ends. 8 to 1. (granted the opposing team hardly ever made a shot)

Dull day at work. *Yawn*

Met up with M. after work. Had dinner at a friend's restaurant. Spent some time discussing details of her production.

David Garrett at work tomorrow.

I am really starting to hate Facebook. Myspace doesn't have nearly as many problems even though you can personalize your page more and add music. Facebook has too many apps, groups, and fan pages. At least I can have both on my phone, but so far Myspace is the one that works the best on it.

I got VPN access at work so I could leave my computer there but still work from home. The VPN works fine, but I can't seem to get the Remote Desktop Connection to work. Technology blows.

they must have forgotten to allow the firewall to let VPN users use the RDP port?

Well, plenty of other people do it. I wonder if you can't connect to a Windows 7 PC from a Windows XP PC or something. Or if there's something else I need to do on my home machine.
