    Heh...we went from a nice week in the 70's to a weekend in the mid 30's with rain/snow.

    I got to wear shorts for the first time since last fall, and I came to two realizations: I need to lose 10lbs so my shorts will fit comfortably, and my legs are almost as white as my socks! :eek:

    If you're a pig farmer in or around the affected area, then yeah...if you're part of the 99.99999% of the world's population who aren't pig farmers in the affected area, then no. :p

    I wonder if they're going to start slaughtering pigs by the thousands like they do with Hoof and Mouth. All that pork...just wasted. :(

    Well, first day of my new job done! It ain't so bad working for a provincial ministry, the pay is good, there's air conditioner, great people. I'll still be spending my days answering phone call regarding tourism, as I work for the ministry of tourism.

    Unfortunately I've got two evil exams of doom left. Meh! I'm going to skip two afternoon of work for them, but it's not like I have any choice anyway.

    Some folks with swine flu are here in Chch and they're nice and quarantined.

    There are a few students and lecturers involved in this number - so there's a chance I might be dead soon! How exciting!

    We made tablets last night at Uni - and got to keep some (also we crushed, dissolved and pulverised some - but that was to be expected :p )

    Flix: Good luck with evil exams of doom.

    a) Nah, boredom is a universal law
    b) Death does not exempt one from RP - :p

    ...as opposed to 'stuck in your throat'?

    At least you got whatever it was through.

    [​IMG] I wouldn't eat snakes, they're gorgeous creatures. Truly beautiful.

    I'd heard garter snakes were the only snake poisonous for humans to eat, it saddens me that it is wrong :( I like to remain factual.

    Am currently getting coursework done while my boyfriend is playing Simon the Sorcerer 3D :) it actually works on his laptop with Vista on it! It won't work on my XP desktop though, bah.

    Sal is still not happy with me though, he's been going out of his way to make me feel guilty and it's horrible :(

    So...why would someone want to go to Quebec? :hmm:

    That's a serious question, BTW...


    In other news, I decided that I'd had enough of one of my failing HDDs that just happened to be part of my RAID 0 array. It would die about once every 2 weeks or so, and while I never lost any data, I had to wait though a CHKDSK after each incident...so I ripped it out and made a new RAID 0 array with my Windows 7 HDD...so I hope no one wants anymore Win7 pictures... :bad: Formatting is taking forever too, I should have selected the "Quick" format.

    The sad thing is, I'm on my laptop and my BB right now, and the BB loads the BoM *faster* than the laptop! :bang: I wish there was a way to hook my BB up to 22" monitor. :bigeyes:

    Interesting observation I made today about fair haired bald men - when they walk towards you and look at the ground - from a distance it looks as if they don't have a face. Weird.

    The most obvious answer would be the 'history' of the town. Translated: Unless you're interested in seeing a bunch of old, decrepit buildings that are boring as hell, don't bother. Don't mind the smell -- there's also an alarmingly high concentration of A-holes up there.

    It's called tethering, you idiot. If you do that prepared to be raped with data charges.

    I bought that Temple of Elemental Evil PC game and the game installs no prob. It's just that the sceen goes to a black screen and then back to the computer's main screen. So I asked a buddy at work and he says it might be the graphics card. So I need to find 1 that works for my lil bro's AMD Athalon processor so I can finall play it. I've been dieing to play that game since I was in highschool.

    ToEE is not a very demanding game graphically. The Athalon's performance should easily suffice. Back then I played ToEE on an AMD K7 with 650 MHz, 720+ MB RAM and a Geforce-3-Ti-500. That is to say, your problem is not about hardware.

    To me it sounds like something driver/ copy protection/ settings related.

    No s***?!?!? Gee? how did I not think of that...even though my wife works as a tech for Verizon? :hmm: I must be the biggest f***ing idiot EVER!

    /end sarcasm :rolleyes:

    I was referring to hooking up a monitor *directly* to a BB. I know what tethering is, I know how much it costs, and I know I'm not paying that much. My DSL speed is faster than any current 3G speed...the problem is my ancient laptop. BB's browser can't handle everything on the net, but it loads pages faster...
