Oh snap, the Kings fired Andy Murray.  They were playing pretty poorly and could get bounced from the playoffs altogether.  Too bad, I kind of liked Andy Murray in that "he coaches a rival but you have to respect him" sort of way.


I liked Murray too, but this had to happen.  Two straight seasons of missing the playoffs due to a spectacular implosion at the end of the season = something ain't working.

Middle of the day perhaps.  I got roped into working Saturday / Sunday this week.  That said, I'm off Monday -> Friday night.  (My 10th Anniversary is the 30th though - no game time then I'd imagine.  ) :twisted:


Dropp me a line if you are around middle of the day on Sat or Sun... don't know if I will be or not.

Otherwise, let's shoot for Monday night at 7PST?

Oh last point... the Treo 650 does not take advantage of the new hi-speed data networks, which is certainly something to consider.  If you live/work within the coverage areas (major metro cities), wireless broadband access is a HUGE boon.

8605  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Its time to upgrade my phone. need advice on: March 17, 2006, 06:37:55 PM
I've used a Treo 650 and honestly found it awful for a phone.  Voice quality was medicre to poor, and the phone degredates over time.  Some people absolutely love it, however.

I've also heard mixed reviews of the 700.  Some love it, some hate it.

Another alternative is the 8125.  This is Cingular's version of the phone I use with Sprint, the PPC-6700.  I find the slideout keyboard far better than the Treo's tiny one and the screen is gorgeous.  The voice quality of the phone is also leaps and bounds over the Treo as well.  The only caveat is a) if you do turn on the 802.11b wi-fi, it drains the ever loving shit out of the battery, and b) if you like dialing the phone in the car, forget about it, as the dial pad is on the touch screen and you can't feel around for buttons.

Quote from: "Starshifter"
Interesting trades for the Islanders.

Isles send Parrish and Sopel to the Kings for two young players Grebeshkov and Tambellini, who happens to be the son of former Islander Steve Tambellini.  Both are 21 & 22 years old.  Time to look towards the future.


As a Kings fan, this is a pretty fair trade from each side.  Parrish is fantastic, and if the Kings can lock him up long term, it ends up as a very good deal for the Kings.  Sopel is better than our 6th defenseman right now (Nathan Dempsey), but is no major prize on his own.

Scouting on the prospects shipped over:
Grebeshkov - I was once very high on this guy.  If he pans out right, he is very similar to the Kings own Lubomir "Norris" Visnovsky.  However, in the action I've seen (both at the NHL and AHL level), he is awful.  Absolutely dreadful.  He currently makes awful decisions on the ice and is entirely too timid on the power play.  Now who's to say he can't turn it around, but I'm glad the Kings sold him before his value dipped further.
Tambellini - Wicked wristshot.  Should be a legitimate scorer in the NHL.  I like the guy... good speed, good shot.  Pretty competitive attitude, and he's put up the numbers everywhere but the NHL.  Problem with him is that the Kings have a lot of forwards, so trading him for Parrish works out fairly well.

I think the bottom line for them is that they realize it's an important feature to add value to the machine, but one would be very hard-pressed to argue that it would help them sell more units at this point smile

My main issue with TPC is that it doesn't seem to know when I want to cross rather than jab (or vice versa).  It handles hooks and uppercuts just fine... but man, it sucks at the jab/cross.

I agree with you there Gellar but the game is seriously unbalanced if both sides don't use the buttons. We can try one Tourney (this one) with TBC and then the next one Config 3.

How does that sound?

To be honest, TBC is alot more fun then buttons. I just feel more like I am throwing punches with it then just mashing the buttons like every other fighting game out there.


I'm good with whatever you guys decide.  I just want to fight smile

I'm absolutely awful with TPC and don't find it fun at all, but if you guys want to go that way, I'll give it a go.

I'd obviously prefer to use Config 5, but I won't quit if you force me to suck with TPC.

Sony said that?  I find that hard to believe.

I remember them saying that 1080p was TRUE HD. I don't know if they ever came out and said that 720p wasn't real HD, but I do know they kept hammering home the point that 1080p was TRUE HD (according to them at least).


Ok that I can believe.

Quote from: "Jumangi"
Which was funny since Sony makes 720p TV's that they market as HDTV's. Just more of the right hand not knowing what the left is saying when it comes to Sony.


Yeah that's why I can't see them saying 720p isn't HD.  

I would expect them to totally play up 1080p though (as Hetz mentioned), since it a) would sell more PS3s, and b) sell more TVs.

4) Morgan Webb is kinda cute, but she has a SPECTACULAR rack.

I exited a vehicle which was used in a crime (the high speed chase), traveling 100+ in a neighborhood at night.  No reason at all for the cop to be jacked up.  

Before anyone gets me wrong, Im not saying the cop did the right thing, but to pretend your mother theresa is just bullshit.  You put yourself in these situations, accidents can happen, particularly from an armed man who may be fearing for his own life.


I dunno.  If I'm in a car where my buddy decides to be an asshole, I pretty much have no choice but to hold the fuck on and pray I don't get shot by some stupid fuck cop or killed by my moron friend.

If you cannot control your adrenaline to act rationally in this situation, that guy shouldn't be a cop.  Period.
