Unsure of what you're goggling at...

But that tin case looks DAMN NICE! Wonder how limited those are?
1922  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Bad Mofo Wallets - just got mine. on: November 09, 2004, 12:22:11 AM
I just broke down and ordered a wallet from www.badmofowallets.com. It just arrived today, and it rocks. Very nice construction, looks like it'll last a long time. It looks better than the pictures. And it comes with a business card with the Ezekiel quote that Jules likes. As a wallet, it fucking rocks - two dollar pockets, 8 credit card pockets, a zipper pocket for coins, and 5 plastic pockets for pictures, business cards, ID, whatever.

If you're a fan of Pulp Fiction, this wallet is the one to get (there's other Bad Mother Fucker wallet makers out there, but I picked this one, and I'm glad I did).

I called today, and they STILL don't have it yet, saying maybe next week.

Screw 'em, I'm going to order from Amazon. But the site is incredibly slow right now for some reason.

Argh, Amazon doesn't ship to P.O. Box addresses. This blows.
1924  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / How are the Ipods? on: November 08, 2004, 09:09:50 PM
Quote from: "Zero"
Quote from: "Torfish"
I'm looking to buy an iPod as well.

Are there headphones included with the purchase? Are they decent?  How is the sound good quality?  Bass?

I probably won't be purchasing any music from the internet.  I still like my actual CDs.  I have many.  Is there software included with the iPod that allows me to download all my bought CDs into the iPod?  

I'm looking at the 20GB model.  Is there a 'shuffle' option for all the songs?


Yes - there is a shuffle...most of them have it, but the iPod and Zen Xtra have them too.  You can also build a music list, and shuffle that too.  The iPod comes with software that you can use to rip the CDs...I think they use to come with MusicMatchJukebox, but with iTunes on windows now...I'm not sure if iTunes can rip CDs...but either way, it should come with something to rip your cds.


The iPod does come with headphones. They're decent from my accounts. Just decent, not great mind you. And iTunes can rip CDs.
1925  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / How are the Ipods? on: November 08, 2004, 03:18:19 AM
There's also the iPod Mini, which are $250. They aren't good deals $-for-GB, but if you don't have that many songs, the 4 GB HD's can be sufficient. If you do decide to go the Mini route, take my advice and don't buy one now - the current models are almost a year old, and I'll be willing to bet $10 that Apple will release a new revision coming Mac World San Francisco (in January).

Yeah there's other alternatives to the iPod - Dell and Creative makes MP3 players too. But if you want to use iTunes and the iTunes Music Store, the iPod is a must. And it's worth the price - you'll understand once you hold one in your hands. smile

My EB hadn't gotten the PSTwo yet either. I'm thinking of ordering online too.

But the thing is, I paid $20 to reserve the PSTwo at the store. What happens to that $20 if I decide to get it somewhere else?

Quote from: "stiffler"
Well, from what I have read, American McGee didn't come on until this one was far into development.  If you read the Enlight press release they mention that they are trying to establish an American McGee brand.  Not necessarily things he is making himself, but just a banner to sell games under, like a vanity label type thing.


Yeah, like Wes Craven.

1931  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Question about domain name hijacking... on: November 05, 2004, 05:03:24 PM

1933  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Question about domain name hijacking... on: November 05, 2004, 05:37:18 AM
All right, I registered a domain name under a hosting "company" called NorthWindWebHost. They are a smarmy, sleazy company that went out of business, sprung up as a new company, Blue Hosting or something like that, went down, and sprung back up as www.vizhost.com . Well, I knew from the onset that I've made a bad move, as they refused to give me control of my own domain. But I didn't pursue it, as I switched to another company for my hosting, and when I requested they change the DNS information, they obliged. Fast forward to a couple months ago. I took my site down, and no longer have a need for the domain. I decided to just let it expire. It's expiration date came and went, and my information is still on the whois registry. For privacy reasons, I want that information out of there. I don't give a shit if they want to keep it or not, I just want my information off the whois registry. Well I emailed them three weeks ago, and naturally got no response. I found their phone number today, and gave them a call. The person on the other end gave me bull about how domain names takes a long time to become available and the registry information to be changed. Well, I know for a fact that domain names become available almost immediately after the expiration date. And the weird part is, when I view my domain in the whois database, the expiration date is still Oct 2, 2004. What gives?

And if it's still their fault (NorthWind, VizHost, whatever the **** they are), is a threat to take them to court a viable threat? I mean, could I even take them to court over this?

I know, it's just a little thing, but it's my information on there, I no longer own the domain, so I want that off, so the damn junk mail could stop.

http://www.chait.net/index.php?p=504

Normally I wouldn't touch a Dell product, but you gotta admit, this LCD looks sweet. I don't like the audio bar thingy either, but the good news is, it's removable. Notice the S-Video-in there... That means I can ditch my crappy TV. And it's only $800, and knowing Dell and their crazy coupons, I could probably get this for $600 or so.

I'm seriously considering buying this.

Well, the past weekend I brought in my starting-to-get-funky PS2 at EB. My luck has it that they're out of PSTwo's. But I still gave them my PS2 because the $100 trade-in deal ends on the 31st. So now I'm without my PS2, and eagerly awaiting a new shipment to arrive at the local EB. Anyone got any idea of tha availability of those things?

Quote from: "Jancelot"
Jerry Bruckenheimer produces so many movies that you get the good (Pirates, The Rock, Black Hawk Down, etc) with the shit (Armageddon, Kangaroo Jack, Pearl Harbor, etc).  In my book he averages out and I never know if I'm going to luck what he produced.  Then again you can usually tell by the director, and the same guy that directed The Mummy is doing National Treasure so prepare yourself accordingly.  Sure he makes lots of money, but so did Barney.


Hey, I liked the Mummy movies.

On the PowerBooks... yes, it's due for an update, but the update for the iBook came by without a word for it's bigger, aluminum-y brother. It's possible it'll be updated in January. But as for it being big is unlikely. Possible but unlikely. The only two possible directions the PowerBooks could go are a PowerBook G5, or a PowerBook dual core G4. The G5 is way too hot, and NOT for laptop use. Not yet anyway. The dual core G4, while promising, is still a while off - Freescale says the first samples will go out in February-March, way too late for a MWSF2005 update. So chances are, we won't see a PowerBook update for a while, or see a simple speed bump.

As for the iMac G5 fan, it's not supposed to be loud. That's a defect that affects a fair number of iMac G5's. Call Apple and they'll provide you with a fix.

Are you... sure about that... Mentag?

I've played around with Linux. And it's no plaything, I'll tell you that. Almost impossible to install trouble-free, constant problems, incomplete-feeling open source software, more problems, and a necessarity to use the terminal if you want to do anything, oh did I say more problems?

OS X is vastly superior. And Apple's sleek machines are vastly superior than your typical biege Linux box.

Linux may be approaching danger for Windows, but the only thing that tells you about Windows is that... well, you know the rest.

I totally agree with you on the one-button mouse. I hate that thing. That's why I'm using my Intellimouse Optical. Works great, and you can use the extra buttons for expose. Or the usual uses it has on the PC if you get the IntelliPoint drivers/software. Just about any USB mouse will work in OS X natively. Logitech also has OS X-based mouse drivers if you have/like Logitech mice.

As for browser, Safari rocks! If you still don't like it for some reason, there's many browsers on OS X to try out... Firefox, Camino and Mozilla are the most popular. Just don't even think of using Internet Explorer, it's outdated by two years, out of development, and sucked even when it was IN development. Just stay away.

1953  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Hey lawyers (LSAT and GPA Q's) on: October 23, 2004, 04:28:51 AM
I hope the lawyers from Gone Gold still read the forums around here.

I'm majoring in philosophy, and plan to go to law school. I'm just wondering how the lawyers who has been there, done that, went about it. What's a good LSAT score? I'm thinking 165 and over? And how did you prepare for it? And what was your GPA? What should I keep it at? I currently have a 4.0 GPA, but I'm screwing up big time this semester, so that 4.0 will go poof. I'm hoping to go to either Georgetown or New York University law schools. Cornell would be nice, but dunno if I can get in. I think/hope I'll end up practicing in New York, so a New York school is ideal.

Sorry for the barrage of questions smile

Thanks in advance.

So, I bought my PS2 a couple of months after it was first released. And I had absolutely zero problems with it ever since... until now. I borrowed a copy of Mega Man X6 from a friend, and inserted it into my PS2... Disc Read Error. Okay, I thought, it's probably scratched or something. So I went back and tried it on his PS2... and it worked.

God damn it! My first disc read error... I hear stories about some PS2's that can only read DVD's or some such. frown frown frown Damn you, Sony.
