General Discussion / Re: Trip down memory lane.
« Last post by TJ on February 01, 2011, 11:44:36 AM »
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 / Trip down memory lane.

It's been a while, place looks like a nuke went off.  :roll:

Comin back for nostalgia more than anything, Hard to believe I found this group all the way back in middle school. Got me a house now, and real bills. :P

Glad to see TJ still dustin' the place off every now and again. Figure everyone else just got too busy with life and stuff. I know that's what happened to me.

Man, 2200+ posts.  I've been tooting about on another board for close to 3 years now and am still over 500 off from here.

If any y'all see this lemme know how you been holding up these past 4 or so years!

General Discussion / Pandora Recovery
« Last post by TJ 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.

Congrats on your graduation! :D

I remember the good old days in the Map Development Forum, and when we were all playing SC1.

I've been working in a computer lab at Burbank. Gained invaluable IT experience there.

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?
« Last post by TJ 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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKDgYKSEN6M&)

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  :(
