Thanks, hep, but really, no apology necessary. I apologize if I made anyone uncomfortable.  It was really meant to be a hidden link... I am just not wise to these newfangled posting methods here.

You could really make it up to me by posting a picure of your hair, though.

I've always been fascinated with the entire Bruce Less mythos. He somehow was elevated to the one true god of martial arts, when there are probably numerous people just as skilled. A couple movies and an unfortunate death really pushed him into the stratosphere.

my plan is to make one half ass movie then get myself killed while running with scissors.  i'll be immortal!

I'll definitely be grabbing it.  I recently tried watching Batman: TAS after watching the Justice League/Justice League Unlimited and man it did not hold up well.  I'm working my way through Batman Beyond which is much better.

the first few seasons of the Batman: TAS were pretty revolutionary at the time.  Nothing like it had been seen in a LONG time (i.e. it didn't serve to sell toys only and the stories were quite mature).  however, i can see your point.  after the utter brilliance of the JLA and JLU series, its hard to go back and watch the forefather in action.  the last couple of seasons were more in line with the justice league stuff, though. 

i really miss those cartoons.  the legion of superheroes and the newer batmans are okay at times, but they can't hold a candle to the bruce timm stuff.

OK, things continue to improve. One array has been recovered and I am just looking for the offset for the most important 2nd partition on the second array. The location of the /home folder containing the user content. Things are looking well for a full data recovery. In the meantime my super switch and my SAN have been installed and I am configuring them this weekend. Enjoy your vacation ladies! I will post an addition update Saturday sometime.

And do you have a backup plan in addition to fault tolerance now? smile

Seriously.  Not to sound ungrateful for the awesome amount of bandwidth, resources, and time that you donate to OO, but as someone with a couple of paying hosting accounts on NavigatorHosting, I'm kind of floored that an 8-plus day outage is even possible.  If the hosting gig is truly more of a hobby than a business, that probably should be more fully disclosed on the NavigatorHosting site.  This outage has reflected very poorly on my reputation as an IT guy with those whose sites I manage.  crybaby

ouch.  you've had an 8 day outage?  i thought rip had the business side up and running a while ago and that the OO site, since it's purely a charity project on his part (for which we are all grateful), was being brought back online at his convenience?

I have fond memories from my childhood of a friend's little brother trying desperately to be "cool" with those things.  Everytime we were over at this friend's house, his brother would inevitably appear with his nunchuks or whatever they're called and begin trying to impress us with his masterful skills.  This always ended with him bashing himself repeatedly in the head, back and shoulders before limping off to his room in anger.

Let us not forget that DS9 had the single greatest character from the Star Trek universe...




Garak.  The level of moral ambiguity the writers gave that character was amazing.

I loved the episode in which Cisco needed the Romulans to turn on the Dominion and asked Garak to handle it.  Garak told him he probably wouldn't like his solution to the problem.  Cisco, not realizing what would happen, told him to go ahead.  Garak ended up killing hundreds of Romulans in a rigged explosion that made it look like the Dominion double crossed the Romulans.

It got MUCH better towards the end of its run.  Didn't they push braga mostly out of the picture around that time?  I thought I'd read that they brought in fresh (and infinitely better) writers around that time to try and save the show.  Alas, it was too late by that point.

I doubt it.

bah, your question loses all significance when the REAL question is asked:

Bare knuckle cage match:  Twiki or Muffett?  (this is presupposing that Twiki ditches dr. theo as he COULD conceivably be used as a weapon during the match)

I believe I made a bit of a mistake in that earlier post.  "Daggett" was supposedly a general term for the creature's breed/make/whatever.  I guess his name was actually Muffett.  So it was "Muffett the Daggett"...which takes it to even new levels of sheer stupidity.

In any case, I always just assumed that "Muffett" was actually Winnie the Pooh after a horrible car accident...




HEY!  no personal attacks in here....oh, you said Daggett.  I thought you said the other thing....

I played a bit more SP last night.  I'm diggin' the size of the maps in the SP campaign.  They're freakin' huge.  The first game was excellent as well, but the maps felt too linear for me.  It was like "Go from point A to point B to finish level".  In vegas 2 I get to Point B and I find out I've got to now head to Point C then D then...well, you get the idea. 

Plus, they really have added some variety to the way in which i can approach most situations with enemies. 

The only downside is that the game is so darn intense that I can only play about an hour or so at a time before my nerves are shredded.   icon_biggrin

Maybe the reviews are different because *GASP* people have different opinions on the game. A shocking idea I know, but it could be true.

while i would normally agree with you, the divergent reports about something that can easily be verified like the framerate issues noted above leads me to believe that may not be the only reason for the inconsistencies.
