1721  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Car/truck questions on: March 26, 2007, 03:26:57 PM
Well the car I got now is still reliable, I've had no engine troubles with it since I got 4 years ago now. Just that one thing that there was a recall for but for some reason it was only recalled on fleets instead of consumers. I have a 96 crown vic by the way.

Thanks for the opinions, I'll just keep driving what I have  at the moment smile when I get out of college I'll think about it some more. My buddy just bought a new Tacoma and I was wondering what the gernal populace felt.

Still annoying that I only have 1 functioning window though, but I guess that is life with the old beater car heh.

Well it is a Honda smile I'll add that to my list then. I thought Acura was the luxury line?

Friend has one of those, don't really like driving around in a bunker. Nice little jeep type thingy though. And it starts at 22k, when I price out the stuff I want will probably be out of my price range.
1724  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Car/truck questions on: March 26, 2007, 12:58:29 AM
I'm looking at a new car in the near to distant future and I've kind of narrowed my choices down. I'm looking at a Tacoma or a Scion tC. Was wondering if anybody had experience with either of them? Or if someone has similar suggestions? I'm a poor college student and my current car is running on it's last legs. The engine is good but everything is falling apart inside. I've had to replace the driver side window twice and every other door is slowly breaking combined with things on my dash board that are starting to just not work anymore.

I believe I can manage up to 500 a month maybe. That is pushing it. I'd prefer as low as possible but I don't want to be stuck with payments for 7 years. No I will not lease I want to buy the car.

I live in Reno so I was looking at something that is either front wheel, all wheel, or has 4 wheel drive so I can get through the snow. Basically something a college student could afford. Used isn't out of the question those two things I listed were rather inexpensive and they're Toyota so I can drive them into the ground basically.

If you finish building that could you sell it for 5000?
1728  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: I begin my new amp build... on: March 23, 2007, 06:03:42 PM
Gaining the satisfaction that you actually built it yourself?
You know when you get that guy that says "Damn that sounds good."
And you can just say, "I know, I built it afterall."
1729  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Blu-ray aims to oust DVDs within three years on: March 22, 2007, 12:13:13 AM
I'll just throw this in there, here is Toshibas response to Sony's crazy claims.

Right thar

Basically I have a biased considering I hate Sony overall. Anyway, HD-DVD isn't out of the race yet if you can even call it a race. The idea that Toshiba will undercut Sony in every way they can kind of proves they are in for the long haul. And that overall it is easier for many small indpendent manufacturers to switch to HD-DVD then it is to Blu-Ray so factor that in for the overall porn thing if anyone REALLY wants to see Porn in Hi-Def.

Also don't forget that whole 3X DVD thing or whatever it is that brings HD movies to a DVD that can be played in standard DVD players. Which is also....Toshibas. Also the multitude of dual players and multi format discs coming out that can do Blu-Ray and HD-DVD. Either way Toshiba has sold more stand alone players than Sony has, since not everyone in the world is buying a PS3 or the add-on for the 3shitty. There are people that like to watch movies that don't play games you know smile And at the moment The cheapest Blu-Ray player is I think 499 on Amazon since Sony is subsudizing amazon to cut prices in half. While Toshiba just dropped prices of all of it's players the cheapest one now being 399. If Sony drops the price of the players again, Toshiba will just go lower.

Anyway, feel free to disect all that smile.

I went out with an Indian friend of mine to a well respected Indian restaraunt in the McLean VA area.  My first time with Indian food.

I ordered the buttered chicken and it tasted good enough to eat the entire meal- I also quaffed a Kingfisher (Indian beer).  Went for a walk and shot the bull.

I roll up into bed a little after 10 and throughout the night I woke up with bile in the back of my throat. It burns! It burnses!  I spent the monring in the hotel purging the toxins if you will and never strayed far from the bathroom.

Embracing diversity is overrated!  I shoulda just had a burger.




Should of done that one first. Oh well

Also, I went on the ride for the first time in 25 years in February. It wasn't as great as I remember.  It's A Small World has held up tho  thumbsup

That is just.....I am literally wordless with rage.
1733  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: BSG - Should I keep watching? on: March 19, 2007, 11:38:58 PM
If they stuck with "The frakking Cylons could be on us the next day" and were fighting them off all the time it would of been great but they got into the whole human cylon prophecy and intership relations. I mean yeah those can be interesting, but don't make the entire show about that. I'm sure everyone was interested with the mini series and the 1st season because of the fighting and the suspense. Now they are saying "Oh who are the 5 cylons?" and I'm sure is just going "Why do I care who the 5 cylons are?"
1734  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: BSG - Should I keep watching? on: March 19, 2007, 09:34:59 PM
I'm getting so tired of Days of our Battlestar. I'd like a space fight to happen at some point. Can only take so many random camera shots of space and then just go back inside. For being a show set in space, I'm seeing a lack of fucking space, it's like just random moments in the show "Look we're still in space!" and back inside to whoever is now hating who of the week.

For XP I was using 97.46 force ware, it's a 7900 GS Go that is in the laptop and CoH ran fine. Haven't tried it with Vista yet. The command line is to run 3rd party maps. Same drivers for vista so I'll see.
1738  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Desktop threadzor on: March 15, 2007, 08:19:05 PM
I wouldn't have the CoH icon except that I have that shortcut run with a command line so I kind of need it.

1745  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: "light" in the corners of LCDs on: February 27, 2007, 05:13:42 PM
It's not called backlight, it's usually just brightness. Which just increases or decreases the backlight. Just turn it down until it isn't annoying but it is usually brightest around the edges because it needs to reach the middle of the screen. One of the bad things about LCDs. The new LED LCDs coming out are supposed to be better about that.

Oh, for anyone that wants a spiffy picture, here is one that I resized that I thought looked cool. If you resize down to 1024 or 1280 or whatever I suggest just changing the canvas size instead of actually resizing the picture if you want I can do it for you.

1757  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Worst song lyrics of all time? on: February 20, 2007, 06:23:32 PM
Hey baby wake up from your a sleep
We have arrived onto the future
And the whole world is become....

Elektronik, Supersonik,
Supersonik, Elektronik,

Hey baby ride with me away,
We doesn't have much time,
My blue jeans is tight,
So onto my love rocket, climb,
Inside tank of fuel is not fuel, but love,
Above us, there is nothing above,
but the stars, above

All systems gone!
Prepare for downcount!

5....4....3....1! Off blast!


Fly away, my space rocket,
You no need put money in my pocket
The door is closed I just lock it,
(Ha) I put my (Ha) port plug in your socket (Ha Ha Ha)

The sonic sky is bright like fire
You and me gets higher and higher
Cut communication wire
Only thing can stop us is flat tire

Ha, Ha, Ha Ha Ha Ha

Hey love crusaider
I want to be your space invader
For you I will decend the deepest moon crater
I is more stronger than Darth Vapour
Obey me I is your new dictator
For you is Venus, I am Mars
With you I is more richer than all the tzars
Make a wishes on a shooting stars
Then for you I will play on my cosmic guitars!

Ladies and Gentlemen
Fasten your beltseats
We has commenced our decent
I trust you enjoy this flight
As much as you enjoy this accent

Now back on Earth its time for downsplash
Into sea of eternal glory my spaceship crash
People have arrived for cheer me from near and far
And as I float I open door and shout
"I am worlds biggest, washed-up superstar!"

(Supersonik, Elektronik)

As for sure as the sun rises in the west
Of all the seas and all the boats I am the bestest
come, let me put ring of Jupiter on your finger
Then like a smell around you I will forever linger
Ok, is time for end, no more will I sang
Let me take you back in time,
I want for you to experience big bang

Long live space race
Long live, Molvania

For everyone that wants to see this wonderful song that is also totally hilarioius.

http://www.projectorcentral.com/Sony-VPL-FX50.htm

That is what my Dad used. They aren't presentation projectors.




Basically it all comes down to price point, you'll get a kick ass TV for 1-2000 dollars, compared to a so-so projector. You get to 6-7000 you'll get a great projector that is comparable to a 10,000 dollar TV.

For the price range Ridah is looking at he's just better off getting a great TV compared to so-so projector. If he had more money than yeah a great projector is feasible.
1759  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Shopping for a new HDTV, need advice... thread redeemed! on: February 20, 2007, 03:08:41 AM
Projectors are only good if you have the money for an actual good projector.  A cheap projector will never look as good as a regular HDTV. They just can't reach the depth of colors and contrast ratio. I mean DLP is a 3 barrel projector while most projectors only have 1. If you want to get into the projetor area that could start to rival regular HDTVs you're talking 5-10,000 dollars for a good projector. That is a good Sony or Sharp projector.

Anyway that is my thing on projectors being a stagehand and having a Dad that developed a sports book using all Sony projectors.

Why did they pick the fugliest pics of Scarlett, and why must she wear her hair up all the time? She is so much hotter with her hair down and having it shoulder length.

Brunnette does not look good on her either. WHY? ASKMEN WHY?
