I was back in the alley by the office yesterday making my usual rounds searching the trash. Earlier I was over at Walgreens and picked up my customary shopping cart I use to cart along the cans and discarded food I ususally find back in the alley. I looked in the dumpster behind the hospital and there was a whole frincking computer thrown away! I was wondering who would toss a whole computer in the trash like that and later found out it was Nadine. I dont know who Nadine is other than a 58 year old woman who drinks, has a lot a men friends she photograps a lot and as I was to discover looks pretty good nekkid for her 58 years

After changing the RAM around I had the computer running in three minutes. Nadine had put her password on the illegal copy of XP she was running, but I was past that and to desktop in another three minutes opening My Pictures folder. Her whole life was there including images of her always fun nights at the bowling alley as well as the considerable time she spent relaxing in the hot tub afterward. How she got that hot tube in the trailer court down the street where she apparently lived is a mystery to me. I know Steve who lives there and He dosn't have a hot tub in his unit. Nadine liked to gamble. Online gambling, race track and I think a recent stint as an escort is the likely way she earned a living. The OS had over 1000 instances of virus when I ran Malwarebytes. I ran Ccleaner and that software repaired a list of problems too long to scroll entirely, like 1200. Christine's, an interesting younger friend apparently, birthday pictures folder looked like the saturday evening work room gathering at Tokyo Lips Escort Service. A guy she called Carlos was her boss I'm pretty sure. He had on a yellow hat with a tall green feather sticking up and was wearing trousers like a Chippendale dancer would. He had bruises on his head stretching to his leg like He fell down drunk pretty often. The kind of picture that made you want to look him up just to say, 'stay classy Carlos!' Well, I wiped the hard drive and made a USB storage drive out it. I did keep one personal document of Nadine's. My Life Story. I want to refer to it should I ever feel down about ANYTHING that has ever occured in my life.

Here's the MB.
CPU 2.66GHz Sempron socket 478 which overclocks very nicely.
RAM 512MB 333MHz PNY
Nv 5200FX which may be overheating or the PSU is on it's last leg. This is the likely reason the PC was tossed in the trash.
80GB Barracuda 7200.7
Sony 52x with DVD ROM combo. Removing the remants of Carlos' hat feather from the tray and a shot of air got this unit wotrking
DVD ROM CD burn combo a second optical drive worth at least $5
Floppy drive
300 watt PSU which I am sure is of the highest junk quality available
TT HSF and TT 80mm exhaust fan which I saw at Fry's for like .40 cents after rebate

Any comments before reynod gets it for an upgrade. Reynod it's beige and yes, the protective door you asked about covering the front access USB ports is missing.

Just so you know, "Carlos" isn't my real name. They've just called me that ever since the incident in '93.

It probably was the GFX overheating. I've dealt with 4 of the 5200FX - Fan went out on every one of them.



P.S. I hope you meant "Celeron", or that computer could be worth some serious money.
August 8, 2010 11:17:54 PM

Yeah, reynod its a Celeron. I tried to tell you but no.

This is the best post I've read all year.

Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed reading it. :)  I hope it broke the monotomy of fielding all the nOOb 'How do I...' questions from the Mods day after day.
August 10, 2010 2:31:20 AM

I must admit, I laughed quite a bit while reading the story. I guess I need to start looking in dumpsters for people's discarded computers. There is a lesson in all of this though: Recycle your old computers, but before you do, destroy the hard drive.:D 
August 10, 2010 2:48:50 AM

One of the girls photographed from Tokyo Lips Escort Service name was Monotney.

Edit for spelling and ambience who was also present.

i guess badge is used to digging into dumpsters

after all i heard he grew up in hard core chicago
August 17, 2010 8:12:16 PM

I was 1/2 exception badge to upload some of those pics of "Christine" :lol:  I nominate thee for the "Post of the Year Award".
August 17, 2010 8:50:34 PM

I already cashed uprenda's check for the pics. It was written on his mother's account or his first name is 'Sissy'.
August 17, 2010 11:23:43 PM

badge if you keep this sort of behaviour up we are going to have to promote you to moderator.

You could instantly derail any flamewar or arguement with a post like that.

Scarey eh?
August 18, 2010 12:13:42 AM

Hey, you found my story. I understand personal attacks are not tolerated. I try to speak in the third person if you are not on my list. Strikes troublemaker uprenda off the list. Denies authoring the earlier post regarding his odd first name for a man. I will try my best to stop making you the butt of my sick always funny jokes in the future. You are a good sport for tolerating my jabs at 'ya and yes I will destroy those crazy wild pics of you and 'her' I have been holding. Stop worrying. Wouldn't dare really fly over there and hunt you down. You are a good sport to be sure. Thanks for being so and I hope I speak for everyone. If not the others can scurry off under the major appliances and die.

Badge, you didn't tell us the video card she had, or if it was flashed. It may give us a clue as to how successful her business was, a 9800 PRO was a good card, but you could flash the BIOS on the x800xt to make it a x850xt and increase the voltage with a pencil. She must've had it custom-built. I could tell from the purple motherboard....with the gold anodized aluminum heatsink. Carlos probably helped her choose that. No clues on Christine, they may not have even known each other then. In any case, I'll bet it was pretty dusty inside. Even though Nadine worked mostly in the evenings, she probably had it sitting on the carpet next to the desk. And we all know how cats are always rubbing up against every corner they find, they are pushy (OK, I like cats, but still, they ARE pussy.)

I was trying to remember what a rig like that cost new, but I guess we can all guess how she paid. Do you think she's a volunteer candy-stripper at the hospital? Or maybe she lives nearby. Or Carlos saw the pictures of Nadine and Christine, got really angry and took it to the dumpster. That heavy TT HSF might have damaged the RAM when he threw it in the dumpster, so it couldn't fire right up. You did say she looked pretty good for a 58 year-old. I used to think 58 was old, but over the last many years, I've realized that just is not true. Sure Christine may be a little younger, but Nadine had looks and experience. I was shocked to hear that she had an illegal copy of XP installed. I mean, who would do that? I'll bet she didn't know. Carlos probably got it in trade for crack, you know the old "I'll trade you this shiny silver disk (with the serial number written in felt tip) for sum a dat crack?" Yeah, happens all the time in the alley next to the Walgreen's. No, I haven't actually seen it - just heard about it.

Oh, I almost forgot: How do I overclock my computer? It has Windows XPsp (I forget which sp), some RAM, and an brown (not purple) board inside.

Nadine was real. She was 58 years old, had a lot of male friends and frequented a local bar. There was was a younger girl who appeared in a lot of pictures. Carlos was a friend who appeared in a lot of pictures. She really gambled a lot online and also at the race track. The computer was riddled with virus and spyware, was installed with an illegal copy of XP and had thousands of OS errors detected by ccleaner. Presently I have the 80GB hard drive mounted into an IDE to USB enclosure and the 512MB RAM installed into an old P4 2.5GHz Northwood system I have stowed away. Other than the money I get for the pics, I have only Nadine's life story document from the data on the hard drive. Nadine. Honey is that you?

BTW Steve, my buddy who lives in the trailer park is 64 I believe. I was surprised his pics didn't show up in the hottub collection. I'll have to tell him about finding Nadine's computer next time I see him. Steve is an Italian guy who once showed me an autgographed picture of him and Joe Torre together. I met Joe Torre when I was in high school. I also was in the audience when Tori Spelling appeared as a guest on the Tonight Show. Coincidence? I think of it as a religious experience.

Since we seem to share the same sense of humour badge I was going to ask my mum tomorrow if she ever went off the straight and narrow prior to my birth?

Were you wearing the gas mask 47 years ago ... on holiday in Australia ... and did you accost a short woman with dark hair in a small country town in South Australia?

I know JD's going to pip in here and claim all sorts of things but ignore him ...

I am putting Ry in charge of the ongoing investigation as you can always trust a Marine ...

I am pretty sure Nadine isn't my sister either ... but I will also check.

She could possibly be uppendra's mother though ...

P.S. I do know a Steve who is 64 and lives in a Caravan Park (slightly upmarket but not quite a Park Home ... more a Park Hoe ... as it is a temporary thing ... prone to move on occasion).
August 23, 2010 3:14:22 PM

How is mum?

August 23, 2010 5:45:02 PM

I heard Nadine didnt need her puter after Randall Flagg told her to toss it
August 23, 2010 6:15:21 PM

She did mention Harry Potter and the Heartbreakers in her life story.
August 24, 2010 5:12:48 AM

Please tell me that the pic isn't of Nadine...
August 24, 2010 10:06:15 AM

Not to change the subject much, but does anyone have any further information on this late breaking story.
August 24, 2010 3:56:21 PM

5 .In these straightened times TUBB is cheaper as a) We don’t charge much as the pretty sites and b) Ugly people have lower expectations – for a first date a Family Bucket will usually do the trick.

Any of youse knighted people know What's it mean?

Some of the women on the forum may hit it lucky with all the famous clientel. I mean Kenny Rogers is a newest member. I'll try and point out some more famous people on there after lunch.

Yes, it was very useful. Thanks.

a) The site says it is free - have you registered? Did they charge you a fee? If so, was it based on your lack of prettiness?
b) Just a guess here - the Family Bucket of chicken from your favorite fast-food chicken franchise, comes with biscuits, a couple of sides and a jug of iced tea.

What about my earlier overclock question? As I said earlier, I have a brown board and some ram.

Thank you for the guide. It was very helpful in OCing my P4 (3.4GHz) to 3.6GHz :bounce:  on the brown board -I found a stencil on it showing P4P800-E Deluxe. :)  It also has some corsair RAM with red and yellow and green lights, and some red G. Skill RAM (but they have no lights and it's hard to tell if they are actually doing anything :pt1cable:  ). After I yanked the cords out of the back, my mouse stopped responding :(  ...

I've had time to look at some more pictures Nadine left on her computer I found in the trash bin. Nadine's 12 year old eighth grade picture look like Pat Benatar in this video. Nadine could have been my college girlfriend's twin. And yes my college girlfriend was gifted. She got her Bachelor's in Sociology at thirteen. Well, she acted like she was thirteen same thing. From the look of these pics, I think Nadine must have been an actress by the time she turned 19. I'll try and get some pics up of Nadine when she was 19. Did Marilyn Monroe have any large, firm veloputous moles?



Sorry for the edit. This mole is interesting.
September 29, 2010 1:00:07 AM

bye yall, this thread is weirdddddddd
September 29, 2010 2:16:12 AM

Nadine is Pat Benatar and Monotney one of the escorts Nadine works with freaks out getting your name tatooed on her back and you call the thread weird. That knock at your front door must be the escort service stopping by for payment.

Who else is forum jester? Humor...in honor of Tina Turner, "what's love got to do with it" I ask?

My bad. I take back the Tina Turner in light of comment. There will be other forum jesters. Or clowns in the making as I prefer to call them. The videos I posted are not worthy of labeling me as an intellectually inferior forum jester with a drinking problem. They are all about creativity while staying on topic. Or brilliance if you prefer.

Shirley you jest

Laugh and the glad world laughs with you,
Weep and the sad World will sigh!
Mirth is our Life's true Elixir;
It show you're a "Regular Guy!"
There's nothing so banishes worry,
nor puts such a big crimp in sin;
Nor smooths out the wrinkles of trouble,
Like a jolly old Jesterman's grin!
It rolls off the years from your shoulders,
You'll forget that you've grown to be men!
Your youth turns once again to embrace you,
For you've grown to be schoolboys again!
So, if you've got grouches, don't bring 'em,
It's your laugh and your joke that we need;
For Mirth is the Doctor of Trouble,
And Laughter the Jesterman's Creed.

Not quite the same as "check out those puppies ..."

hey will someone start a good flame thread in the cpu forum so we can bring back the smarties and have some fun??
October 1, 2010 2:07:31 AM

like: Which is the better cpu, Intel or AMD?
or: Which is the better GPU, nVidia or AMD?
or: I have a HD5770, do I need a 750W or 850W PSU?
or: I want to replace my stock cpu cooler, which replacement should I get?
