    And again till I find a better Nidaime pic.
  5. how about................ your ORIGINAL pic? That was good.

    Just dont take mine lol.
  6. No and I think you all should be concerned with things more important than what avatar I choose or following me around harassing me about it. Its fucking pissing me off that I can't go two posts without someone crying about it.
  7. you are following us around....

    or do you claim all us "normal" people can track a ninja such as you?
  8. Lets see, hmm. I'm just a guy who loves computers and loves playing games. Oh, and I drink too much caffeine.

    Dude wtf is up with your avatar?Maybe Webshots has a new feature, that will give you a new avatar everyday... instead of wallpaper. :wink: :lol:
  10. I obviously make no bones about my identity, my name's right there. I will certainly not disclose my employer after some of the posts I've made in regards to them! I like my job and hope to keep it. I have a girlfriend who bought me a 8800GTX. I fly planes and hang gliders. 24 y/o.

    However, the real reason I'm posting is to introduce my avatar. That fat animal is Moose, a 13 month old Rottweiler. Moose likes to eat PCBs, and these have included an Audigy card, a Radeon 9600, and a WiFi antenna (not really a PCB). Moose also enjoys clogging case fans with his ever-present black hair. Moose pretty much loves everyone and everything. Moose is legendary for his cruel SBDs. However, Moose hates hang gliding (who'd have thought they make dog harnesses?).
  11. LOL you should meet my big brother. He was a real bastard. Kicked out my teeth, dislocated my knee cap, ran me over in his car, kicked me in the balls, and the list goes on and on. But still, if anyone else ever laid a finger on me as a kid he would have kicked the crap out of them. And the same goes the other way now that I'm the bigger of the 2 of us!! LOL
  12. <(O.o)> Whoa...
  13. I saw that in a record shop in Kamloops BC last summer. I thought it was pretty funny that a shop was still selling Laser Disks. Even funnier that a company was still publishing laser disks!!!

    eh, i got my case of jerky, and a $50 gift card to itunes today, but the real present is the $1300 rig in my sig, along with a viewsonic VX922 monitor, so more like $1500. from mac elitest to pc fanatic in one fell swoop. after i get the case and i can actually put this thing in something permanent (on my desk sitting on a peice of foam right now, ive only done stability testing so far.).
  17. I'm 46. Married, three kids. My oldest is graduating University of Illinois in May and then getting married in June. That makes you feel REAL old. I could be a grandpa before I'm 48. I work ot three days a week, work in government and had my first book published last September by Penguin. Before working in government I worked as a newspaper reporter for 14 years.

    My first computer was Wyse with about 64k of memory, two 51/4 floppy drives. I bought it to write the Great American Novel in 1984. The book never came to be but I played the orginal version of Zork on it. My book published by Penguin is a true crime novel, far from the Great American novel. Good luck to the previous poster who's working on a book..

    My second computer was a IBM PS1 which wasn't much more sophisticated than the first. When I upgraded to a sound card the stuffy salesman at the local computer shop made it clear he thought I was a moron for wanting a sound card to play games on it.

    Times have changed. I can remember getting boxed in my buddy's Grand Prix listening to Led Zeppelin on the 8-track and waiting for the tracks to change. My first CD player cost about $300 bucks. I still have it but don't use it.

    Merry Xmas, Happy Holidays to All :D

    The worst part was when the track changed...midway through your favourite song. GRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!! :o And my dad rented an 8-track recorder....taped from a bunch of LP's, and basically D.J'ed my sisters wedding(1979)...on 8-track. I'm embarassing myself beyond belief. :x


    Yea, the mid-tune track change was as bad as when her mom walked in on the passion moment. I still have a box of 8 tracks, just a few classics like Just Another Band From LA, Disraeli Gears, etc. I had a recorder too, even an in-dash player/recorder/FM tuner. Record your favorite tunes while you drive? The 60s were the beginning of truly weird tech for the masses.

    I love going out with a few friends, have a steady relationship with my girlfriend of 4 years whom allows me plenty of PC time (when she's not hogging my pc time)... :lol:

    Love WW2 movies, and hate all movies with non DTS sound tracks :lol:

  29. Dud, i know what you mean, mine is bitchy one day and sweet the next. I got fed up thought, she is controlling, she demeans me, and she and her friends are constantly interfereing in each others relationships. She actually tried to fight me at the airport.

  36. Invader was the model name of my first car, 1962 Pontiac Acadian Invader (a Canadian model of the Chevy II). In high school we named our intramural volleyball team the "Invaders" as I was the only guy with a car and I picked everyone up. The name stuck and the rest is history! Also the Oakland Invaders (World Football League?) had cool uniforms, so there simply was no other choice. :P

    Guys, not everybody here is American.. how are we supposed to know what's EIT, PE, BLT, etc etc.. :?

    Well here in the UK a BLT is a Bacon Lettuce and Tomato sandwich, so I can only assume he eat a sandwich in Washington DC. :D

  49. Were you like restricted from useing internet or something for the last month or 2 that you are replying to the whole damn thread now. Just nosy thats all.
  50. I've been on the forums for a few months, but typically don't post too much since most of the things I'd say have already been said by someone else...If you've ever gone to Cnet, there's a chance you've seen me there, since I've made a few more posts there...Anyway, to the story.

    I'm a 20-yr. old Nuclear Engineering student at the University of Missouri-Rolla. I've been screwing around with computers for years, and been building/repairing them seriously for a little over a year. I enjoy my games, from consoles to PC's. I'm amazed by how little some people know about computers, and I try to enlighten them when they need enlightenment.

    Oh yeah...St. Pat's is the best holiday ever.
