I can't understand you morning exercisers.  I can barely get myself to walk to the subway let alone get in a run or do 60 push-ups.

You should try it. A good workout releases endorphins... which put you on a good mood for the rest of the day. I tend to feel really good when I pump some iron in the morning.

You pretty much did everything right. You filed a police report and exchanged info with her. Make sure to get the estimate ASAP. Are you going thru insurance for the repair? If so, great. If not, the moment she fails to respond to your call for her to foot the repair bill, call your insurance and get everything handled that way.

I'll second Wordpress on the current version.  The earlier version we used at Popehat was so difficult to interface with that sometimes I just wrote my entries in html, but the 2.5 version currently out isn't much more difficult to learn and use than a typical bulletin board control.  In fact it shares many of the same features, so learning it should be a snap.

Blogger is also very easy to use, perfect if you just want to write whenever, but there are just too many nice things it won't do.  It is to blogging what AOL was to the internet.  Easy training wheels.  So it may be a great introduction, but you'll move on if you stick with the hobby.

I second Tareeq's comments. We use Wordpress at Horror-101.com and it works like a charm. I used Blogger at my own personal website, and basically it's good as long as you're not doing anything much than just writing and posting the occasional picture. I say.. go to Wordpress.org and download the latest version.

Quote from: PeteRock
Within moments the welcoming aroma released by the toasting treat wafted through our kitchen.  As a child my culinary skills began their development as I learned to determine when a Pop Tart was toasted to perfection simply by smell.  There is a very specific moment when a Pop Tart reaches its ideal toasting temperature, but any longer and it begins to burn.  It is a very delicate balance between risk and reward.  But once you cross that apex into burning sugars a perfect Pop Tart is quickly destroyed.  The closer you are able to come to that apex without going beyond the closer your Pop Tart comes to toasted perfection.  But as you near perfection the danger of inedible charred remains becomes more and more risky.  One must refine their senses to be able to identify that perfect moment merely by scent.

Nice--Your Pop Tart heating description serves as a metaphor for the process of many things in life.

I want to stop for ice creams. I want a cornetto!

I had to look that up to find out what it was supposed to be like and found this bit of info:

Quote
Cornetto is mentioned in the motion picture Shaun of the Dead. In one scene, Shaun (Simon Pegg) asks Ed (Nick Frost) if he needs anything from the shop. Ed responds, "Cornetto." This scene is repeated with the same actors in Hot Fuzz, and is a reference to co-writer and director Edgar Wright, whose preferred hangover cure is a Cornetto. In Shaun of the Dead, the flavour used was strawberry, which has red packaging to signify blood, and in Hot Fuzz, the flavour was classico (vanilla), which has blue packaging to signify police colours. A third film in the 'Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy' has been announced by Pegg and Wright, and the flavour will be mint. The film will be called The World's End.

oh, Coolness! I didn't know about the cornetto's link to Ed Wright's films. Any new movie by Ed Wright is great news to me. I loved 'Shaun' and 'Fuzz'.

Dear Armando,

 A few hours from now I will step on stage in Detroit, Michigan to announce my support for Senator Barack Obama. From now through Election Day, I intend to do whatever I can to make sure he is elected President of the United States.

Over the next four years, we are going to face many difficult challenges -- including bringing our troops home from Iraq, fixing our economy, and solving the climate crisis. Barack Obama is clearly the candidate best able to solve these problems and bring change to America.

This moment and this election are too important to let pass without taking action.


It goes on to say yaddah, yaddah, yaddah give money. Hillary's (un)concession ended the torturous Democratic presidential candidate process. Gore's endorsement is but frosting on the cake, but still welcome.

Zombies would have made this movie awesome

Zombies make any bad movie a good bad movie.


Shut up with the Zombie talk on the Shyamalan thread. You don't know he could be skulking around the net, reading forums, looking for his next 'great idea' for a pretentious, 'spiritual' summer blockbuster. He comes across this thread. Next you know, we'll be watching a film about a sole character who dies of a long, painful unknown disease. After 2 hours of 'buildup', the character dies and comes back from the dead in the final frames of the film as a zombie. And Shyalaman casts himself in that role the whole way thru. He'll call it 'The Rising', and you suckers will pay 10 bucks next summer to see it.  Tongue
3158  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie]The Incredible Hulk on: June 15, 2008, 05:38:38 PM
I watched it last night. My impressions are similar to YK's. I rank the movie around 70%. Entertaining, but not as good or witty as 'Iron Man'. It's a very straightforward tale, with good action sequences and light in character. I get the feeling that some character-development scenes were cut out of the film, since all the characters in the film--from Ed Norton's Bruce Banner to Tim Roth's Emile Blonski--come out a little flat(this explains why Ed Norton is not doing publicity for the film). Liv Tyler as Elizabeth Ross was ok, though I'm afraid this confirms she doesn't have any acting chops; she came across plastic for me.

I did like the nods of the hat to Stan Lee and Lou Ferrigno; Ferrigno in particular got a crowd-pleasing cameo. I also liked the brief use of the Hulk TV show's music in one of the scenes when Banner is walking into a Mexican town, being down and out.

Spoiler for Hiden:
That was cool how they introduced 'The Brain' by having Mr. Blue get altered by Hulk's blood at the lab. Also, I got the feeling that the final scene where Robert Downey walks in as Tony Stark was tacked on in there. It probably was supposed to come after the credits, but the sucess of 'Iron Man' prompted Marvel to re-edit 'Incredible Hulk'. It was neato nonetheless. Lastly, the next-to-last scene, where Bruce figures out how to control the Hulk, was a great touch--no more 'reluctant hero Hulk' in the next movie since he now knows how to control his power.

I say.. bring forth another sequel. I want to see more Hulk.

I, and I suspect many others, don't particularly give a damn about the backlog of other OO posts that existed before the crash by now - I think we just want an OO forum back. Even then a useful backup of the previous OO could be made in due time. Really, what's the goddamn delay? I know it doesn't take this fucking long to get a simple forum together, though maybe it does if you're relying on Rip.

CSL, a bit too rough, bro. I know many are upset with this situation. Some have thrown the towel on OO coming back. A few of us are still keeping the faith that the site will be reborn sometime this summer. But we have to keep cool about this. There's no need to harsh about this. We don't want to widen a rift that was caused in the first place by an accidental server meltdown.
