That would be cool. I've wanted to set up a server for a while, but I'm a little behind in my housework to get to it :p My son and I have been building a Feed the Beast world, but I'm stuck hosting it off my laptop and that's a little taxing on it...

I still don't have StarCraft 2. I'd planned to wait until all 3 parts came out and let them release them together in a Battle Chest - type thing, but I had no idea it would take so ... damned ... long!

And them Minecraft began to consume all of my free time....

Off topic, how ya been? I think it's been a couple years now since anyone popped in here for a visit.

General Discussion / Re: Has anyone read a Sword of Truth book?
« on: May 11, 2011, 02:06:36 PM »
wow, thanks to some spammer necro-bumbing this....

the early books were okay. decent enough to get me to read more, but the later ones have all gotten so unbelievably pretentious. you can tell he thinks of richard as his alter ego, and that he really thinks he's that wonderful and brilliant and naturally gifted. and he's not. sorry, but his writing style is weak. he doesn't even know how to break up chapters properly. i forget which book it was, but he ended a chapter mid-sentence, and then continued it at the beginning of the next chapter. all his chapters end like that (not that bad, but at inappropriate places), while all the natural chapter breaks are in the middle of chapters. if that's what you've got to do to keep people turning pages,  your writing needs work.

...make a post in this topic to prove you're a real person. then i'll give you permission.

for current members, if you can't see/post in any of the other boards, let me know. i may have over-tweaked things.

reading a lot of the old posts, i don't think any of us can claim to be the winner so easily.

i got the place half nuked anyway. then i got bored   :tongue:

and yeah, while i was trying to figure out what to save and what to delete, reading a bunch of those old post.... wow. funny stuff.

i'm still working on the whole house thing. unfortunately, the canadian housing market didn't tank like the us one did. especially where i live. in the span of 2 years, we went from being one of the most affordable places to live in the country, to being the eighth LEAST affordable place to buy a house in canada. i could easily buy a house in the us right now, but i'm looking at becoming seriously house poor if i buy one here  :(

General Discussion / Pandora Recovery
« on: November 25, 2010, 12:33:22 AM »
yeah, i know hardly anyone comes here anymore, but i'm posting this everywhere i can.

have you ever accidentally permanently deleted files off your computer that were kind of important? like, say, a file/folder is too big for the recycle bin so you permanently delete it, or you just plain empty the recycle bin when a file that wasn't supposed to be there was in it?

If you do, STOP! don't do anything else until you download Pandora Recovery. It's a file recovery program that can recover files you've accidentally deleted, or it can even recover them after you've formatted your hard drive. Most programs like this run from between $40 and $80 (or more), but Pandora Recovery is 100% FREE! A donation screen pops up after you use the program (and why wouldn't you donate at least something), but otherwise it has full functionality, forever, for free.

A few tips so you don't screw up like I did (I lost a few files):
- DO NOT install Pandora Recovery onto the drive you are recovering files from. Don't install anything else on that drive either, or move files there, or create folders there, nothing. Don't do anything to that drive until you've recovered your files.
- DO NOT recover your files TO the drive you're recovering your files from. As Pandora Recovery re-writes the files you lost onto the drive, chances are good it will overwrite some of the files that haven't been recovered yet, meaning you lose them. This is the mistake I made (didn't read the instructions first). All I did was make a new folder to put the files in and a few of my files were gone. More importantly, the folder all my files were in was gone, meaning I had to recover all the files individually instead of just copying the folder. I still got most of my files back, but it was a lot more work this way.
- If you're recovering files off your OS drive (usually C: ), your best option is to physically remove the hard drive and put it in a separate computer because Windows constantly writes to your OS drive. If that's the case, or if you only have one drive, you can buy (for a measly $19.95 - or less if you buy more than one) a 1GB thumbdrive with a no-install version of Pandora Recovery on it. This way you don't have to install the program (potentially destroying the files you're trying to recover), and it gives you a little bit of space to recover files to. I'm definitely buying one.

I thought it was important to share this because I spent all day looking for a program like this (or cracks/serials/keys to make a pay version actually work), and got very frustrated. Then I found this and it really saved my ass.

it's weird how much older we all are. i remember when most of you guys were in high school (or younger). now you're graduating college and i'm looking to spend a ridiculous amount of money buying a house. stupid local housing market where prices went UP when the economy tanked and not down like the rest of north america.  :( </grumbling>

General Discussion / Why Lie When You Can Teleport?
« on: September 02, 2010, 07:57:53 PM »
Men, have you ever just gone to the bar to have a few drinks with your buddies while your girlfriend thinks you're supposed to be somewhere else? Yeah, that kind of sucks when she calls and you now have to explain why you're at the bar and not at dinner with her parents.

But! Andes brand beer from Argentina has the solution for you: the Teletransporter. There's really nothing I can say about it to do it justice; just watch the video. And, for the record, yes, these are real, and yes, they've actually been installed in the main bars of Mendoza, Argentina.

(since I've just discovered the forum is not setup for embeding youtube videos, here's the link:

i vaguely remember you. i'm the only one still coming with any regularity (once per day  :razz: ) - Ice popped in a couple weeks ago. i'm planning on gutting a lot of the forum, but i'm lazy, so that might actually take a while.

but by all means, keep visiting. i'm hoping to give the place a reboot, but members are still needed.

as much as i'd like to get sc2, i can't see managing to cram it into my day  :(

* TJ goes and looks at his bloated acumulation of images

768MB also not including any pr0n. or scanlated manga (now that folder is frightenning - i really need to clean the cappier stuff out of that folder). i should really go delete most of those images. all they do is sit there and take up space.

i also love how the 'size on disc' is bigger than 'size'. great compression there windows.

*ultimate super bump technique!!!*

i was looking this up to show to someone else, and i guess they made a new flash video to go with the song.

i think i still like the original better because it just looks so... bad.

General Discussion / Re: Blu Ray vs. HD DVD - a winner?
« on: February 19, 2008, 10:04:57 PM »
...and 4 days later, it's official. toshiba will be gradually reducing the shipments of hd dvd hardware with a complete halt by the end of march.

The financial analysis firm Goldman Sachs said Toshiba would raise its profitability between 40 billion yen (US$370 million) and 50 billion yen (US$460 million) a year by ending HD DVD

so, if you're one of the 730,000 people who bought a stand alone hd dvd player (600,000 of which can be found in the united states), congradulations on the purchase of an upscan converter!

i bet sony's just drooling over this. people might actually start buying ps3s since it's cheaper than pretty much any stand alone blu ray player.
