If you have someone in your family that is always hitting the sugar bowl hard (especially in the morning), empty the sugar back into the bag and replace it with salt :snakeman:

Re: HR 833 - Federal Reserve System Changes

Here's how I see it:
Anarchism <-> Libertarianism <-> Capitalism <-> Socialism <-> Communism
Neither extreme is a good thing IMO (ie Ron Paul is one crazy mofo :shock: )

Re: Anyone know of good earbuds?

Try a set of skullcandy or v-moda. Both top notch brands. This is a pretty good site for research but they carry mostly higher end stuff.

Also might want to try in-ear monitors (IEMs), much more comfy than earbuds...

Re: Better Store?

For the most part, I like to have a physical copy of the CD and just rip that to FLAC. Get yourself a nice 80gb 5th gen iPod for cheap, stick rockbox on there and you're set.

Re: Updated L4D Server, but who cares?

I've got it set so you can connect from the lobby now and have been looking into some advertisement plug-ins. I haven't had a whole lot of time to mess with it lately but I can easily turn it into a public server; though it won't be nearly as easy to connect to. I wish steam would hurry up and relea...

Re: Cajun Crawler Exhibition 08

If you have the right tools i dont see why anyone could make one, youd just need to be very accurate Precisely why I so desperately want a CNC machine. I've got visions of an electric wheelchair with these for wheels. Even found the correct ratios that Jansen uses after a bit of research... http://...

Showoff... 8-[

I actually kinda slacked off and stopped. Seeing as this is finals week though I may as well start up again and try to get into a little better shape than round. Thanks for the reminder!

Re: Doctor , Is my Poor little USB Pen drive certified??

I've had a couple of pen drives that I thought were fubar (did the same thing as yours in gparted) that I managed to save but I'll be damned if I remember how...I think I had used the dd command to basically force it to wipe and partition the drive. I'll do some looking and see if I can recall how I...

Bet that even the long process of sanding will still be much faster than waiting for swiftech to help me. Got a response from him and he told me that my thermal paste on my blurry picture was my GPU and that it was making perfect contact. I'm sending him a video now ;) Clean off all the paste, moun...

Wonder how Kyle is getting on waiting for his parts. It's actually quite a heated 'race' with the holdups you both keep having! Kyle is currently leak-testing atm...Kyle also likes talking about himself in the third-person and hasn't had setbacks so much as a case of the lazys. Anyways, I'll update...

Connecting To The Server From The Lobby

OK I had a bit of free time today edited the server cfg a bit. It's still not perfect and I still plan on improving a few more things but it works for now. To connect to the server: setup a friends-only lobby, invite friends and switch to public as the lobby leader, pull up the console and type sv_s...

Re: campaign or vs?

It's set to campaign, Dead Air, on normal ATM. I haven't really even had time too look at the server between work and school but seeing as I finally have a car and the quarter is ending soon I should have more time to tinker with it and set it up so you can connect from the lobby.
