  1. Actually users on the forums have been very good lately.

    Seriously.
  2. I haveseen it on the CPUs and Graphics sections
    alot of AMD vs Intel or AMD vs Nvidia fanboism that has gotten really insulting
    but I guess that is normal?
    like I said it could be a matter of my perception
  3. while I do like certain companies just from good past experiences
    I would never get emotionally involved in any company
    For example I like Asus,MSI,Antec and Logitech
    but if I saw a great deal on another brand I would get it
    and I wouldnt get insulting towards somebody over a brand

    and reynod is a mod and he says that users have been good lately
    so that pretty much answers my question
    I guess it has been a matter of my perception of the threads I have been on
    not a overall sampling of the entire forum

    I am still avoiding any parts recommendations due to fanbois
  4. death threats?!?

    ridiculous
    I expect that from the Craigslist rant and raves section but not by toms members

    oh well ignorance knows no boundaries or limits I guess
  5. really that is so ridiculous that you had to deal with that on toms
    I think I will stay away from the news and leisure section LOL
  6. AMD IS THE BESTEST PROC IN THE WERLD PEOPLE! YOU R ALL SO DUM!!!11!!


    :)
  7. hee hee hee hee
    good one riser LMAO

    I have owned Intel and AMD and like them both
    I have owned Nvidia and ATI/AMD and liked them both

    I am somewhat of a quiet Logitech fanboy I must admit
    I really do like my Logi mice and keyboards
    but I wouldnt mind a R.A.T. LOL
  8. I realized because of you riser that I write like I speak on the forums
    I am also a frustrated poet
    other members besides you have commented BTW
    one member described my writing style as bad haiku LOL
  9. so cool oldmangamer
    I have a Creative T4400 4.1 system I got for free on Craigslist that I love
    they used to make great sound cards but now I like Asus sound cards better
    Creative drivers are too much of a hassle

    Oh yeah. They said they would beat me and my family to death with baseball bats.

    They said they had my IP address and know where I live, blah blah blah.

    Then they ended it with "we do not forget, expect us". Oh and the Guy Fawkes mask for their avatar was also a clue.

    Ridiculous, yes. It's all good though. I have a conceal carry permit and regulary carry. Bring it on!



    Glad to see it all worked out OK.

    Anyone who threatens others (seriously ... not including being slapped by trout) here gets dealt with promptly.

    Usually when a moderator is in one of these threads we get another mod to look at things and deal with it.

    Makes it a bit more objective.

    Its been a lot better lately and eveyone has a healthy sense of humour here... a bit of banter is ok.

    Dont' worry about riser as I got him joined up with a Russian dating service ... he should be getting some e-mails from a weightlifter called Dmitri .... funny name for a chick but hey ... I am doing my best for him.

    :)


    :)
  11. riser is okay
    just a natural grammatical "curiosity"
    but I am sure that Dmitri will treat him like the sobaka he is
    spasiba reynod
  12. from an inside source deep in the bowels of Toms I found this picture of Dmitri

    http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/9260/rbvs0190215.jpg

    she is a little hairy but kind of cute dont you think?
  13. *Walks in the room carrying a wet trout and promptly slaps the poo out of Rey-nerdo*

    *leaving for now*
  14. hee hee hee
    Dont worry riser
    Dmitri will be good to you
    Long hot bubble baths and deep happy ending massages
    It could be the beginning of a long and beautiful relationship
    One problem is that Dmitri does speak poor pidgin English and makes
    many grammatical mistakes
    But you can learn to live with that cant you?


    (hee hee I had to do that;all in fun;no hard feelings LOL)
  15. She won't be leaving the kitchen unless it is to go to the store to buy me beer. I won't have to read anything she writes.

    Besides, you've already misinterpreted the name of her. Dmitri is Greek. You don't even know her name since people refer to her as Dmitri's goddess daugther.
  16. dont forget she can bench over 250lbs and make love allll night loooong

    hey on a different note
    I have been self teaching myself how to do video editing
    so use game footage as practice
    so if I can get an honest critique of my editing (not gameplay or FPS) I would appreciate it




    I did it in 1080p 5.1 surround (H264/mp4) using FRAPS and Cyberlink PowerDirector 9 but it came out to 600mb which was too big to upload using my stupid Wireless G connection I am temporarily on.
    So I used Handbrake and compressed the 600mb to 36mb
    the original footage looks much better

    I want to expand my computer repair business by doing video work for home videos like wedding,bar mitzvah,rock and rap musicians etc

    so let me know how my titles,transitions,audio fades are

    thanks
  17. Ah I can bench about 275 right now. :) Moving away from heavier lifting and transitioning into more of a general fitness, more power over strength. I've been slacking off for a while and this weekend it starts full force.
    I'm pushing 260lbs.. a guy I work with is 6'4" and 300lbs. He makes me look little he's chunky, I'm not. Need to shed some of that muscle size.. simple increase in power over strength.

    I don't do much with videos but I am going to report you to the mods for spewing your pr0n :)
  18. Cyberlink Power Director 9
    Iused Sony Vegas Pro 8 but switched to PD 9
    much better GUI and better plug ins
    Sony wants to charge you an arm and a leg for plug ins
    expensive software but I got a hookup (friend with educational discount)

    I am looking to get away from just doing repairs and get into video editing as an extra revenue source
    I already have an up and coming young rapper plus a metal band that want me to do their videos plus their printing work (I have a OfficeJet 7310 double sided heavy duty color inkjet ($55 Craiglist -worth $150 used and a Laserjet 3055 B&W ($35 secondhand store-worth over 300 used)
    Alot of musicians in New Jersey/NYC area that need printing services and video editing
    also hope to set up a small digital recording studio eventually-been studying how to build sound booths-I am a Htg/AC guy so very handy with tools

    thanks for checking out the vid
    took me about one hour to do
    just practicing techniques that would work for wedding/special occasion and music videos
    still have alot more to learn

    I am 5ft11in and was at 265lbs but dropped to 235lbs
    feel stronger and faster at this weight
    the 265 was too much
    I have a bigger size frame but the extra 30lbs was slowing me down
    I want to eventually get to about 220lbs
    starting to get my six pack back (actually a 4 pack right now LOL)
    waist size went from 44 to 38-40
    about a 50 inch chest and 14inch biceps (used to be 17inch bis :( )
    need to do some arm work
    they are cut and hard but shrimpy now
    not bad for age 42 though
    I can still outrun my 10 yr old and play ball with the boys in the neighborhood
    during nicer weather I probably put in about 20 miles a week of running and walking
    now if I can quit smoking I would really be doing good LOL

    Stay off off the roids !!

  21. A pic of me in the Caribbean. I'm 6 feet tall, and was about 190lbs. I'm an avid runner, cross country runner, and was really into weight lifting and body building. I was getting 260ish-275ish on a fairly small frame.
    http://img819.imageshack.us/img819/376/beachu.jpg

    In the last few years I've gotten a little lazy, but still in pretty good shape. Marriage and a desk job will cause you to put on a few lbs. :)
  22. darn you stud aford10!
    (dont worry I am regrettably heterosexual-think it would be easier to be gay and not have to deal with women but man I love the juicy peaches)

    tell me about the marriage thing
    I was 220lbs 5ft11in when I met my fiance (Wifey or Queen SMP)
    we have been together for 6 yrs on 5/20/2012
    I was up to 265lb!
    45 freaking lbs in about 5 yrs
    9lbs a year
    now we are separated but together because of her medical issues
    will be about six months hopefully b4 we move back in together
    in the past three months w/o her I have lost over 30lbs
    mainly because of depression dieting (she really came close to death and still isnt out of danger)
    just got my appetite back about two -three weeks ago
    before that I was mechanically feeding myself-no joy of eating
    but I am focused on not gaining the weight back
    went from 44 waist to 38-40 and want to keep it that way
    so for the past few weeks have been drinking more water and doing very long walks

    what are the arm ring tats aford10?
    tribal?
  23. I know how the lbs can sneak up on a person after marriage. I pray for the best for both of you. Health, weight, petty disagreements, all that aside....if you love each other, that's all that matters. Make it work today. You aren't guaranteed a tomorrow.

    Yes, they are just some tribal art that I liked. I've since added the Detroit Tiger's old English D on my left shoulder. A few more are planned, but not at the top of the priority list.
  24. Oh no!
    Me and my fiance love each other dearly
    after her bout with cervical cancer then bleeding blood vessel in brain requiring brain surgery and then multiple seizures followed by a stroke
    we decided it was better for her to live with her mom and surrounded by her four sisters and two grown nieces
    I love my Wifey with all my heart
    She is the only one for me
    She is my true love
    and she feels the same
    we desperatley want to be together but the situation calls for me moving ot my Moms and her staying at her Moms
    right now I am up in Jersey City NJ while she is 75mi south
    we talk multiple times a day and hang out a few times a week
    she is embarassed about the way she looks (3 inch round piece of skull sewn into place and hair cut off)
    I told her she looks beautiful and the only way I would be disappointed was if I couldnt look at her again

    I have had a few women make it obvious they would "take care" of me in the past few months and it has been a long time since intimate with my Wifey
    but I resist
    She is my entire world

    When you've found that one, nobody else matters. That thing that they can take care of is superficial. I don't want to get too deep, but our lives should be defined by what we do. I pray that your wife recovers and that you have a long life together.

    I 100 percent agree
    During the past year my wifey has subtly said that if I found a "mistress" on the side "what she doesn't know doesn't hurt her"
    BUT what I would know would hurt me
    I can't imagine if faced with her on her deathbed how I would feel being unfaithful to her

    There is a local pharmacy where there is a twenty-something (I am 41) that is always flirting
    will follow me around and tells me multiple times what time she gets off of work
    she is cute
    one night she tells me she gets off in 8 minutes
    so I sat in the parking lot in my car and had an ethical (? moral) dilemma
    after five minutes exactly
    the thought "no good will come of this" entered my mind
    so I turned the key and left the store
    I pray constantly
    from the biggest to smallest things in my life
    Every day I thank the Lord for another day
    I am blessed for what I have

    is it like earings on a man
    I wore earings from age 16-30ish
    I heard that in the left ear is hetero
    in the right ear is homosexual
    wonder if that is true for armbands?

    BTW while I dont condone homosexuality I treat all people as individuals
    I have a few friends who happen to be gay
    Great people and not hurting anybody
    Not for me to judge
  29. I used to be 6% body fat... used to be. Now I'm up there around 20% I think. It sucks, but luckily I'm stilled toned enough.
    The desk job and going out to lunch every day is killing me. Otherwise I eat healthy and small portions. Probably the job stress and whatnot.. but in the last two years I've moved one (house to an apartment), had three different jobs all moving up (meaning the first six months of each you're busting your behind learning everything) and I've been in a relationship which takes up a lot of free time.

    I figure 220lbs is a good place for me to be. 210 gave me a six pack but that means I need to really dedicate to maintain. That extra 10lbs is what I'm going to consider a fair trade off.
  30. Ok doing this on a nook
    Want get one for the family for Cmas
    an extra ten lbs is ok for family guys lol
    Sorry to get so deep and heavy
    Try to keep it light on thg
    this nook thing is cool
    hope it down to 150usd by Christmas q
  31. c'mon we know your all bald fat 40 plus year old guys who live on cola and twinkies ... your not fooling anyone.

    That picture of aford is from a TV show Alphas ... the one about the people with special abilities ... he is the guy who has extraordinary fine motor skills.

    You should have waited ...
  33. dont think I dont think about it LOL
    only problem with the young ones is they fall in love too easy
    too many complications
    now an older mature women
    well I am only a man LOL

    but seriously I love my wifey
    really will try to avoid those situations
  34. Mature women? Like grandma??
  35. no 40 somethings LOL
    remember I am 41 yrs old
    even a nice cougar 50 yr old is cool

    but you know those 70 yr olds with the new hips you could teach you a thing or two
    LOL
  36. Statistically here if your a women and have not married by 27 the next time the odds work out in your favour (there are more available men than women) your 55 or more.

    So there plenty of hope for you both ...

    Even if your butt ugly ...

    Which is what I suspect is the case.

    There are plenty of blind women too.

    :)
  37. blind women are totally okay by me LOL
    personality is my strong point :)
  38. Absolutely.

    We just need to boost your confidence.

    Take riser out on the p!ss (since you live in the same country) and he can be your wingman and bodyguard ...

    The results might maje some good stories here ... or even the news?
  39. hee hee hee
    It wasnt a good night of partying if there wasnt some police and news trucks LOL
  40. I went to an event yesterday to mingle with the local community. I'm new to the area and don't really know anyone outside of work. After a year of focusing on work, time to get out and focus on that aspect. Yeah. I'm invited to a dinner party later this week, a couple additional events in the next two weeks, plus a few are looking to set me up with some of their single friends. A couple married women, with their husbands present, were asking if I was single and openly stating how cute I was. If I was like 18-20..ok. It was a bit awkward but funny. But I'm game I suppose. I just ended a 3 year relationship so I'm not in a rush to jump back into something. Trying to learn my area.

    I have been told many, many times that I am intimidating. While a good wingman, sometimes I intimidate people. :( Which is funny, because if you met me you would think I was anything but intimidating. I'm always asked if I'm former military or a police officer. I have that kind of build. I'm easy to talk to, successful in my career, well spoken, blah blah. As my brother says, I need to date a woman smarter than me. haha
  41. Its a pity wingy wasn't here ... he would have some helpful advice for you.
  42. I wouldnt worry about findind a woman in bars for sure
    Usually when a good woman comes along is when you least expect
    when you get all cleaned up and dressed real nice to go to the bar or party
    never seem to meet anybody good
    but when you go to the coffee shop in the morning in your sweats and baseball cap
    is when SHE is there
    also work can be a good place to meet women

    but bars and parties usually lead to drama......
  43. I moved into a nice apartment complex. The pool is the place but man is there drama. Neighbors wanted to introduce me to their friend.. a year older than me with a 13 year old kid.. say WHAT? Hell No. On top of that she lives in the apartment complex.

    The best part of being in an apartment is that you can always up and move. :)

    I don't have a problem meeting women.. finding one that I actually want to be around is another story. I don't do well with drama or stupid people. :) Finding one gainfully employed in a decent job is the toughest part. But I digress. haha

    Where I live there aren't many bars.. restaurants, yes, bars, no.
  44. every women will bring some sort of drama
    just be careful you dont get one with more baggage than an airport terminal LOL
    there is always some other woman that is out to get them
    there is usually some sort of ex-boyfriend that is a pain in the arse
    there is usually some sisters or mother that is a problem

    it isnt a matter of finding one with no drama
    just finding one with drama you can deal with
  45. ah I'm in a new city so that works to my benefit too. I should have moved down here a single man but I opted to bring the GF along for better opportunities. That turned out to be a mistake.

    People are nicer in some southern states, no doubt. Spring/Summer is here, time to start things off right. :)
  46. find yourself a nice southern belle :)
    somebody a little old fashioned and sweet
    if they still exist LOL
  47. haha yeah. Driving out of the apartment yesterday.... holy crap. A couple of the girls down at the pool. Wow.
  48. i am not much of a city person
    grew up in the suburbs/country
    but living in Jersey City NJ (Armpit of Manhattan)
    I am amazed by all the women I see
    In on half hour drive on a nice day I will see more pretty women
    than in a week at the suburbs
    seems that the women outnumber the men here
    shame I aint single LOL
  49. You know why people in New York City are pissed off? The light at the end of their tunnel is New Jersey.

    I work in a male dominated field.. I work in a location that is male dominated. Most of the people are work with are in their late 40s or 50s, some into their 60s. Of my age there are 2 others.

    As far as getting out, I'm still learning the area. The recently Ex didn't really like going out places, or we'd only go to the same places, never really out exploring. I had to plan and schedule everything or it didn't happen. Now, I have an excuse. I'm the new guy. :)
  50. cool freedom from a bad relationship is a good feeling
    as long as lonliness doesn't set in
    it is good that you want to explore and see new places and people
    alot of people after a break up will shut themselves in
    sounds like you have a real healthy attitude about things in general
