2561  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Cell Phones - Need recomendations on Service and Phone on: February 17, 2005, 02:57:20 AM
just wanted to bump this because my wife and i are in the same boat.  need 2 phones preferably with shared minutes around 500 and preferably unlimited on same network.  we also did not want to spend much more than $60 or so.  
anyone know of some good deals where we could get a free phone or more thrown into the deal?  my wife has been searching the web and has found some decent deals from online dealers, but i'm very skeptical and don't like the idea of entering a contract for a year or more with someone i can't see face to face.  anyone use an online company with success?
2562  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Blockbuster false advertising on: February 14, 2005, 03:55:14 AM
i hate BlockBuster for these reasons.  when they announced this "no late fee" garbage i immediately read the fine print and saw what it said.  i was telling my wife can you imagine someone who returns a movie after the 7 days because they went out of town or had an emergency or whatever and thought they wouldn't get charged?
also, this deal they had last year about the movie club being $15 or whatever a month.  the fine print in that states you automatically get recharged every month if you don't drop the deal before it expires.  of course they never told you that either when signing up for it.  i can imagine there were alot fo pissed off people who were charged additional months and didnt realize it until too late.
BB has false or atleast deceiving advertising more than anyone i know.

2572  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Got a medical question here on: February 02, 2005, 03:50:19 AM
ya i did read about the flushing and he told me i'd have to take some aspirin beforehand as well.  my cholesterol is high but not ridiculous so i'm hoping niacin will bring that down.  but my glycerides at 400 is fairly high.  anyone know if by lowering cholesterol will significantly lower the glycerides?  i know that it would, but could it lower it substantially to get it near normal?  if my cholesterol gets below 200, would or could i still have high glycerides?  and if so, what would that mean technically?
2573  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Got a medical question here on: February 02, 2005, 03:08:05 AM
I actually think these readings are fairly accurate i'm afraid.  My father died of a heart attack at age 51 and he had high cholesterol.  I have a clean diet with very little sweets and saturated fats and i exercise daily.  I'm going back for a second test next week to confirm the results.  My cholesterol was 240 as well.
Anyone have any experince with Lipitor or Niacin?  The Doc has initially told me he wants me to try 1000mg of Niacin for a couple months in hopes that'll lower it without going to Lipitor.  Only thing i've read about Niacin is to make sure you don't get synthetic.  Anyone use Niacin and can recommend a brand and where online to get it cheap?
I'm a bit upset at these results because of my family history.  But fortunate we caught it this soon.  I just hate the thought of being on any medication for the rest of my life.
Anyone else have these problems?

2575  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Got a medical question here on: January 31, 2005, 07:35:37 PM
So last week my doctor wanted to check my blood because i had slightly high cholesterol count (210) the last time i gave blood.  I didn't go to the appointment today for the results but my wife went in because she had a cold and the nurse gave her some info. about my readings.
Apparently some of the readings were incomplete so i have to go and get them taken again, but she told my wife my glycerides were 400 and that was not good.  My wife asked her what that meant but she said i had to come and give another blood sample because something didn't read correctly.  
So what would a glyceride count of 400 mean?  I'm actually shocked since i eat a healthy balanced diet with few if any sugars or sweets.  Anyone have any idea and any links online to read?
2576  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need help with potty training my son on: January 31, 2005, 05:43:33 PM
All day yesterday he would take off his shorts and pull off his diaper and then come to us and tell us to put his diaper back on.
He just wont keep his diaper on.  Evidently he took if out while in bed last night and woke up in a wet bed covered in pee.  We are worried, just wondering how to help him go at home because it seems he really wants to.  Plus cleaning sheets every morning won't be any fun either.
2577  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need help with potty training my son on: January 30, 2005, 10:04:53 PM
Good idea.  He's a huge Spiderman and Thomas the Train fan.  Might give those a try.
Thanks
2578  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need help with potty training my son on: January 30, 2005, 09:12:02 PM
Our son is right at 2 years and 1 month old and we are having a tough time getting him to use the training chair we got him or the regular toilet.  The strange thing is that he goes regularly at day school without problem, and has been for a few weeks now.  However, when he comes to us at home and tells us he has to potty, he freaks out and screams when we take him near the bathroom.  For some reason it scares him to be near our toilet or his potty chair we bought him and he just won't use them.
I can't think of any reason he'd have any fear of our bathroom.  I've taken him in with me and let him watch me use the toilet.  I've put some cheerios in the toilet to try and make a game out of it.  We've done all we can think of and he's scared to go at home.  We even bought an Elmo toilet training doll and he uses it but won't do it himself.  I even took him outside today thinking maybe i could get him to go outside and it wouldn't work either.
The other thing is that this morning he wouldn't go even though he told us he had to and later we found where he had went in his bedroom on the floor.  We have never scolded him or made any type of unnecessary scene around him about the bathroom.  We know he has to go and wants to, but we can't get him to do it in the toilet.
Anyone have any advice or suggestions on what to do or how to approach this?
2579  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Trying to recover after reinstalling Windows, help on: January 29, 2005, 02:58:18 PM
I had to reinstall XP because of some corrupt files, so i'm trying to remember how to get some basic functions working again.

#2.  Wheres the file transfer tool?

I got some more questions but cant remember them, so what about those two?
2580  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / What movie should i see this Friday? on: January 27, 2005, 11:21:31 PM
Hide and Seek has some interest and National Treasure.  However, Assualt on Precint 13 would be a cool manly movie to check out.  I'll check out one of these three and see how it goes.
2581  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / What movie should i see this Friday? on: January 27, 2005, 12:46:17 AM
So i have the afternoon without the wife or kid so i thought i'd go check out a movie by myself since i get to do this once every 10 years now.
However, nothing seems to really appeal to me that i can tell.  I've seen House of Flying Daggers Meet the Fockers and nothing else thats playing. Outside of that i'm struggling on what to pick from.  I was thinking Million Dollar Baby but i dont like the idea of a woman boxing, i really dont want to see that.  How's Racing Stripes or National Treasure?  Nothing is really standing out that i can tell.
Any suggestions?

2583  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone read books on pda? Need recommendations on: January 25, 2005, 01:59:30 AM
Ya i've already got Slayer #1 on my list.  Theres only 1 review of it at Amazon but it's a good rating.  I love vampire stories so i'm excited to see how it goes.
I also loaded up the Wizards series as well.  I'm not real big on sci-fi, but free is always good.  I'll let you know what turns out good.
And again, the reader for Palm is awesome.

2585  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone read books on pda? Need recommendations on: January 24, 2005, 10:59:55 PM
thanks warning.  any of those you'd recommend?  and you know ChaoZ i never thought in a million years i'd like to read anything from a small screen off a pda but i really enjoyed reading what i did.  strange enough.
Last of the Mohicans and Wizard of Oz came free with the palm reader software so i read The Mohicans and quite Oz after a couple nights.  
Thanks again warning.

Edit- Warning, it looks as thought the books don't run on Palm Reader, got a link to a reader they work with?
I see several there i can't wait to start, especially Slayer and the Wizard Bane series.  Thanks a ton again!

Edit- Found the reader.  Wow it's so much nicer than Palm Reader.  Again, thanks and i can't wait to read some of these!
2586  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone read books on pda? Need recommendations on: January 24, 2005, 06:58:31 PM
I have palmreader for my Palm One and i enjoyed reading The Last of the Mohicans on my pda at night in bed and during breaks at school.
So i was wondering if anyone else reads on their pda and what site do you buy from and what are some good recommendations to read?  I was looking for something like Life of Pi or CS Lewis's Screwtape Letters but i can't find them for the pda.  Any other good reads someone can advise thats available for the pda and Palm Reader?

2589  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Worst... day... EVER (NSFW, and VERY un PC.) on: January 16, 2005, 08:55:03 PM
Keep on going Drazz.  I'm not trying to play devils advocate because i know these things suck, but they did not just make up that 75% that i'm aware of.  I've been to several schools and i've seen it before whenever i tried to apply for financial aid.  I was recently put on financial aid suspension because i am in excess hours because i already have a BS and i'm doing something totally unrelated to that education.  When i was suspended they intially didn't tell me why, but one of the reasons was because of that 75% rule you mentioned.  
All i'm saying is don't lose faith.  I know none of us here know how you feel, but i encourage you to not let this get the best of you.  From what you've already told us there's no doubt you are a survivor.  Look at this as a way to prove everyone or thing wrong about not being successful.
Be as positive as you can and things will work out.

2591  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Worst... day... EVER (NSFW, and VERY un PC.) on: January 16, 2005, 03:45:19 PM
Well let me jump in here and post before this thread gets out of hand and off-topic as most of Drazzil's post do.
#1.  Drazz, i have read most if not all of your posts here and at GG over the last few years about your antics, trials, and unfortunate events in life.  However, to my knowledge this is the first time i've decided to post in any of them.  
I gotta second Rage's advice about getting yourself out of that town and into an environment that's going to make it easier for you to achieve your goals in life.  You might find it hard to believe, but there's alot of people around here secretly pulling for you and waiting on that "success" thread instead of these disasters we see here weekly.  
Theres no doubt you've been handed a crappy deck to deal with, but you gotta play the hand you got.  You just can't get yourself involved in fights and situations like the one last night.  I know the girl you were protecting was your friend but fighting with gang members is about the stupidist thing i've heard.  Unless you can catch bullets or take on about 10-12 of those jerks, why would you even consider getting involved?  Were there no other police to help? I guarantee if you were to hit one about 10 more would have came out of nowhere and hurt or even "killed" you.
Take some advice from some of the people around here that's lived a few years longer than you and take them to heart.  I know we haven't walked in your shoes.  But i would bet theres a few here that's been through alot of similar things as you have and has come out of it successfully.
Most of the unbelievable life changing stories you read about or see on tv are about people who decided they were no longer going to live in the crap they were in.  Most took drastic steps to get out and alot of time left alot of family and friends behind.  So i would suggest that you either make a commitment as well or accept these types of things will happen to you continually the rest of your life.  I refuse to believe these things happen over and over to people who are living positive and healthly lives.
And let me add, i am not attacking you Drazz.  I took the time to write because i wanna see you get out of this mess.  Heck i'd pay for a bust icket for you to get somewhere else if you needed it.  I'm still waiting on that "feel good" thread Drazz.

thanks for the info.
yes i do have a sd card.  and i'm trying to figure out how to convert my songs from itunes.  when i try it says they are copy protected, so how do i convert them?

ok i got Cdex, how do you rip them to mp3's?  i don't see any options to rip to mp3's unless it's using some language i'm not familiar with, which is possible.
2593  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Finished my first marathon today! *Updated with pics* on: January 16, 2005, 01:49:55 AM
i think the only one i might buy is the one with my wife.  the one coming out of cinderella's castle was cool except it's too much of a distant shot.  our medals are really cool as you can see and we are thinking of having them framed with a picture.
i got some neat pictures with some Disney characters i'll post when i get them developed.

and i also think i've discovered i have a stress fracture in my foot.  i've done some reading online and talked with some seasoned runners and what i've explained about my foot injury is the signs of a stress fracture.  kinda bummed because i was hoping to get out and running again next week.  looks like i'll be cycling, swimming, or on the efx for a few weeks.

my wife is also digging at me for us to do the Rock-N-Roll Marathon in San Diego in June.  i'm actually considering doing it and joining a charity to run for AIDS or cancer research.

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?
