2562  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Help with moving music to PalmOne on: January 15, 2005, 10:59:00 PM
I bought a PalmOne Zire 72 earlier this week and i'm attempting to move some songs off cd's and itunes.  The software that came with the Zire is Real Player.  I don't have an account nor do i want to have one with Real Player, so what other way is there to transfer music?  I tried moving songs from cd's and it gives me a message that says files aren't compatable with my pda.  I tried moving files from itunes and it tells me they aren't compatable either.
Is there another software i can use to transfer music?  If not, how do i do it with the software i have now?

I got a PalmOne Zire 72 on order that has the Palm OS 5.2.8.  Does most of the games you've got there listed warning play on Palm as well?

Also, how does software work for pda's?  Do you download them to your pda via a usb or something?

also, wheres a good site to browse game reviews and recommendations?

Read down where it has risks associated with gastric bypass.

as an update i am still very sore today and my foot is still killing me.  i hope to get the camera out to develop my pictures in the next day or so and i'll post some pictures.
and yes Laner the commitment to train for a marathon is tremendous.  actually the hardest part for me during training was the time sink involved when you got to the point of doing runs that took 3 or 4 hours to complete.  my wife and i both hated the time it took on weekends to do those runs when our weekends are devoted to family time. the physical part wasn't too bad when compared to the time commitment.
i know i said last night i won't ever run another but last night lying in bed thinking about the people who raised money for sick children and ran for them was very inspiring.  i guess i should have never said never.

ya i am a nut job for doing it.  btw, pics incoming when i have the strenght to get to the photo department.
2572  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Finished my first marathon today! *Updated with pics* on: January 10, 2005, 02:26:05 AM
Yep me and my wife both ran and completed the Disney World marathon this morning.  We've both been training for about 6 months and all i gotta say is i'm glad it's over.
During our entire 6 months of training, i never once had an injury or cramps as the result of the strenuous amount of running.  However, (as luck would have it) i actually sprained my foot at mile 16 and developed a bad case of leg cramps at 18 to the point i almost had to stop.
The first 16 miles were a piece of cake and i was coasting thinking i had it made.  Then at 16 without notice i felt a sharp pain in my right foot.  I went on the assumption it was typical muscle aches and pains of a marathon and continued on.  At mile 18 the pain only intensified.  I stopped at the medical tent to apply some biofreeze to my foot hoping it would numb the pain long enough to get to the next station a couple miles along.  Disaster struck when i attempted to start running again both my legs completely locked up.  The first thought that came to my mind was, "I'm finished".  No way did i think i could run 8 more miles not only on a bad foot but with 2 cramped legs.  Thankfully the station i was at had bananas so i downed 2 and rested for a couple minutes to get going again.  Now i was off on what would turn out to be the most torturous thing i could ever imagine doing to my body.
Up until 20 i was in serious pain but i managed to get along.  But at the snap of a finger at 20 i was nearly unable to even walk much less run.  I decided to walk a bit and catch my breath and concentrate on getting to 21 and through the last 5.  Just as i was feeling sorry for myself, a woman jogged by me with a child's picture on her shirt with the qoute, "You think a marathon is tough, try chemotherapy".  Let me tell you thats all the inspiration i needed.  I immediately thought of my little boy and remembered how blessed we are he's healthy and took off jogging again.  
To make a long story short, it took 2 hours to run the 5 miles i would normally do in about 55 minutes.  Most of the way it was nearly unbearable pain.  I would imagine it was what it would feel like getting hit by a vehicle.  Not only was my foot throbbing and pounding but i still had cramps in both thighs, my right calf, and right hamstring.  I could reach down and feel the knots in both legs.  I knew i couldn't stop because if i did it would be nearly impossible to get going again.  Oh, did i mention both of my nipples were bloody raw from my sweat soaked short rubbing against my chest.
Finally we hit mile 26 and only had .2 to finish.  I gotta tell you it felt like a mile to me.  The crowd at the finish line along with Goofy and Mickey/Minnie was awesome.  When i crossed the line and knew i was done, i instantly dropped and crawled out of everyone else's way.  I have had a broken bone and other various injuries playing sports through high school and college and i gotta tell you all of them combined was nothing compared to the hurt i felt after running this race.  The sense of accomplishment was incredible.
After i gained some strenght and waited for my wife to finshed, we somehow managed to get to the car and head home.  When we got home i hit the couch and didn't move for a couple hours.  My foot was still in incredible pain so i decided to just look at it out of curiosity only to discover it is bruised the entire lenght of the outside of my foot.  I think my wife thought i was exaggerating until i showed her my foot and told her i ran 10 miles in that condition.
To make a long story short, i'm done with marathons.  It was an incrediable accomplishment and i'm glad we did it.  But the truth is the pain and suffering i'll still be feeling for a few days doesn't feel worth it.  I'm sure i won't be able to get out of bed tomorrow and the days to follow will be tough.

So, anyone wanna run one too?

Ya it does make your stomach smaller.  However, if you continually eat just a tad more over a long period of time it'll stretch your stomach out.  Also, regardless of your stomach size if you eat garbage it'll eventually put the weight back on as well.
2575  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone here have any experience with gastric bypass surgery? on: January 09, 2005, 09:28:10 PM
i have known a couple different people who have had the surgery and both had the same results.  both initially lost a ton of weight but gained it all back and more because they never adressed their eating issues and why they used food for comfort.  my wife has a friend who went through it and is headed back in the same direction she came from because again she never solved her issues.  alot of people can be successful but make sure you know it's only a tool to assist you in weight loss and not the solution.  good luck and let us know how it goes.

2578  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need help burning cd's in itunes on: January 08, 2005, 03:39:50 PM
So i've decided to give itunes a go and so far i'm liking the program.  However, i've been wanting to try and make some cd's and i'm getting same reoccuring error during each burn attempt.
The error says, "the attempt to burn a disk failed, an unknown error occured at 4310".  Anyone know what's the deal?  I'm a bit upset i've paid for all these songs and now i can't make cd's with them.
Also, is there not a way to use nero to burn songs from itunes?
2579  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need help buying a PDA on: January 07, 2005, 02:26:11 PM
ya i've read numerous reviews about the problems with the paint so i've decided to go with the special edition that doesn't have the blue paint.

2581  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need help buying a PDA on: January 07, 2005, 02:47:32 AM
Ok update fellas..............i need some advice

I'm purchasing this http://www.officemax.com/max/solutions/product/prodBlock.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&expansionOID=-536906019&prodBlockOID=537262233 Palm for myself after researching them for my friend.  My question is does this have a decent amount of memory or drive space to add other programs to in the future?  I'm assuming it has a hard drive type piece of hardware like a pc, so i'm wondering what's a good amount to have?  I can see myself wanting to add some other software in the future, so would i want to buy an upgrade with this one?  If so, what amount of upgrade should i look to get?
2582  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need help buying a PDA on: January 05, 2005, 11:52:18 PM
Edit

Ok, While checking these out for someone else i'm thinking of getting one for myself.  Additionally, i recieved an Office Max $40 coupon today in the mail for purchases over $200.

Any of these pda's look like a decent buy with the $40 off and a $50 rebate?  I'd be looking at the $300'ish range myself.  How about the PalmOne Zire 72 Handheld for $299 without my discount?
2583  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Halftime Show sucked pure ass on: January 05, 2005, 11:50:43 PM
ya i'm always shocked to see who they book to perform these halftime shows.  you would think they'd have someone perform more in line with the target audience.  i could be wrong, but 99% of college football fans who watch these games are not Ashlee Simpson and Kelly Clarkson fans.  i hate halftime shows typically, but i'd be more inclined to watch if they had something more appropriate for my taste.
2584  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Halftime Show sucked pure ass on: January 05, 2005, 10:04:36 PM
I purposely did not watch because i would rather eat hot coals than listen to Ashlee Simpson sing.  However, i did catch the last 30 seconds and did anyone else hear what i thought was boos from nearly the entire crowd when it was done?

Johnathon might be the biggest jerk to ever live.  How about when he hit his wife because she was carrying his back pack to the finish line.  I'm not sure what pisses me off more, listening to him or watching her continue to put up with it.
2586  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need help buying a PDA on: January 04, 2005, 10:25:39 PM
ok, is palm and pocket pc the same thing?  can someone give me a quick crash course on these things and some minimum specs she would want to consider when buying one of these things?
2587  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need help buying a PDA on: January 04, 2005, 07:25:12 PM
oh wow nursing software sounds cool and would be something she'd like.  thanks, anymore ideas?
2588  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need help buying a PDA on: January 04, 2005, 07:01:17 PM
I have a friend who is in the market for a pda and i have no earthly idea on what they should be looking for or what features they would need or can get.  So let me say what they'll be needing it for and the features they've expressed they'd like and give me some suggestions.  

They're looking to stay in the $300 range if at all possible with the features desired.

They'll primarily be using it for nursing school.  From what i understand you can get one with a recorder built in that they can use to record lectures or use while doing clinicals themselves.  Obviously a good organizer and something fairly intuitive and not overwhleming would be nice as well.  Everyday use for notetaking, calender use, and a recorder.  
What would be some recommendations and is there somewhere online recommended to shop or is a b&m the best advice?

Is it me or does every freakin company that has an automated phone service have this message?  I mean, do they all just change every week and then they plug that message into the operators recorded message?
I feel like i am in a Seinfeld episode every time i get that message.
2590  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Best music download site on: January 03, 2005, 01:44:05 PM
itunes it is.  i'm not even gonna fool with napster and wondering if a song i want can be burned to a cd or what-not.
thanks for the replies  :roll:
2591  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Best music download site on: January 03, 2005, 03:18:31 AM
ok i checked out napster but i see it costs $9.95 a month plus the .99 or whatever a song.  does everyone require a monthly fee or is this just napster?  if this is the case, i'll be passing.  i'm disappointed i would have to pay a monthly fee and a fee for each song.
any that don't require a monthly fee?
2592  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Best music download site on: January 02, 2005, 07:20:51 PM
how about napster?  also, i remember before when it was all free, some songs you downloaded were terrible in quality or either were not even the songs that the title said they were.  is this still the case?  if i'm paying for a song, i'd want to be sure it's cd quality before i pay for it.  how does that work now?
2593  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Best music download site on: January 02, 2005, 05:31:58 AM
I think someone has had a thread such as this before, but i can't seem to find it.
So i was looking for advice on what sites everyone uses to download songs?  Is everyone around $.99 a song?  I'm assuming you can burn cd's as well, correct?  I'm looking to make some cd's not transfer to an mp3 player or anything.  Can you preview a sites selection as well?
What's everyone using?

probably for the same reason people bid ridiculous prices on World of Warcraft when my Eb and Wal Mart has several copies for sale.  
i've come to the conclusion people are lazy and would rather buy online and pay more at ebay than just take a 15 minute trip to Wal Mart.
