The sink holes appear to be close to circular in those pictures.  I wonder whether that is a coincidence or if most sink holes are circular as opposed to a rectangular or any other shape that you can think of.

Most sink holes would be circular in nature because that's the lowest energy configuration for them to form. They might not be perfectly circular do to variations in soil density etc in the area, but as a general rule...

Spock? Is that you?

New TV is here. Yay!

I really didn't think that there would be a big difference between 720p/60hz and 1080p/120hz.

Man, was I wrong. Avatar, besides having one of the most original stories ever, looks absolutely stunning.

my wife is the GM of a HVAC company here in town - she was scheduled to go on a conference for the week and had to cancel due to volumes of calls today - all for no cooling.

Needless to say she and the owner are happy but the service techs are hot and run off their feet. nod

I've found something I hate. It is when I accidentally run someone over with my horse. If it's a woman she screams and gets me in trouble. If it's a guy then he gets up and shoots me. If I shoot back then I get the bounty on me. I don't see that as fair.

Also I once paid my bounty off and went outside and the lawman still attacked me. He was using his fists. I figure I'd just let him win and be done with it. HE KILLED ME with his fist! BS.

Still loving the game by a ton though.

I was prompted at one time to holster my gun and just stand there to give myself up. they kept friggin shooting = me dead. Lame.

Has anybody sold the treasure they found from the first map? I'm afraid to in case I can use it for something later.

And the second map is obscure. I have a feeling I'm not cut out for treasure huntin'.

LOL.. no I still have mine as well for the same reason.  

I still can't locate it!! I went to hangmans rock or whatever it is called - looked for another outcropping of rocks and came up zeros.

A few hours into the single-player, what an incredible game so far. Everything about it is excellent with the exception of a few instances where the controls are slightly wonky. The dialogue has surpassed my expectations, although I should have expected this from Rockstar. The shooting is really fun, I hope it only gets better as your dead eye level goes up.

This Wild West world is so well-done, it almost makes me want to kick back a few shots of whiskey while I play  icon_lol

I am having trouble adjusting to the fact that the horses do not have a reverse setting (control wise)
I also noticed that at least once I was walking by a house and was suddenly thrown into a cut scene that I did not want to watch at the time - there was no yellow X denoting that I had to go there - so it wasn't like I missed something.

I also need to learn to run and gun a little better. The bullet damage really takes a toll on my level 1 character.

MP is pretty cool - when we aren't trying to kill each other.

Still can't apply my codes though?

Gotta say that this series just ended weird? It kinda just pettered out at the end.

One of the odd things was when they were showing the quick little bio's of the actual participants/actors I could not place more than %10. The principle actors were easy to spot (Sledge, Snafu, Sledges friend & Lecky) but the others were just so distant for me I felt it was just really odd - I could not connect any of them.

All in all - I can say that I watched it - thats about it. Nothing more and nothing less. I will not be buying the DVD set.

Not all interested at that point. I am happy with this current generation and 3D is not a selling point for me - same for gaming.

several years ago when working at a deli I had a customer come in that I recognized from pics.  I didn't realize why she looked familiar at first and thought I knew her and forgot her name.  I told her she looked familiar, she got all embarassed and I remembered.  She left the store. frown

Did you say this to her while you were handling the salami? Kinda creepy in that case.

I'll gladly take any questions you guys might have.  I'll answer when I wake up - I'm home with a bad cold today.  :/

You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'and g.PubID=p.PubID and g.DevID=d.DevID and g.GenreID = r.GenreID' at line 1

Hi guys - the few that I saw on Ebay were anywhere from 115-130 for 80gb models.

The price includes shipping. I would be willing to go as low as $100 including shipping if that makes any difference?

Just let me know.

Thanks.
Roman

BestBuy has the new ones here: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Zune/Zune-MP3-Players/pcmcat168100050016.c?id=pcmcat168100050016

Granted they are the HD models but 16gb for $200? I would think that this is a pretty good deal for $100. Thoughts?

Also here is the Ebay listings that I was referring to: http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p3907.m570.l1311&_nkw=zune+80gb&_sacat=See-All-Categories
