      In reply to geekfest, #3:

      Sorry, I literally ran out of time and had to wrap it up quick.

      Jen and I were playing COH and had the radio on when they started talking about the coolest and weirdest Christmas presents ever.

      One of the dudes there said the coolest thing he ever saw was the one where you can buy Scottish Nobility.

      He went on to explain how there is a Castle there in need of restoration, and how they made an arrangement with the government to sell of bits of land, because in Scotland if you own land with a castle, you are a Laird (Lord) or Lady.

      He posted a link to the site on his journal and Jen and I went there (between missions), and sure enough you can buy a foot of land in Scotland to technically get a title.

      You can go visit your castle and land anytime you want, you can stay at the castle from what I understand, go fishing (which they made sound like it was some big ta-doo), and a bunch of other stuff I glossed over (because there was XP to be had).

      I bought land for Jen and I (which you can actually pass down), and the same for her brother (one of my best friends as well), and Richard (another best friend to us both).

      I’m buying one for my niece as a birthday funny maybe for her birthday.

      It’s a cheap fun thing to say “I own land with a castle in Scotland” and oh, BTW I’m a Lord :D

      yeah, I was lucky to find a buyer of my old xbox or else I wouldn't have bought it. I ended up spending $70 out of pocket for the new one. selling my other stuff for $250. i'm just lucky i'm at the point where the stuff i really want is not that important. i have a list of things to buy, but I'll get to it eventually.

      I would ask if you have enough computers there but I know the answer is no


      The agreement with the wife was to keep everything contained in the rack. I got an exception on the Mac Classic since it has a monitor built-in. I also have another short rack for the Apple IIGS.

      Unfortunately, I did sign something. Now I have to send them a resignation letter, plus I already paid $100 for the background check. However, I made sure that I could get a refund if I backed out, so I'll get about $70 of that back.

      that company you work for, do they hire out of the Albany NY area?

      I know a guy who's looking for web work in that area (I dont know his credentials)

    • TheAlbacor

      Oh yeah, it will. I'm way more excited for ME, to be honest.

      did you play with your parents toys?

      i am only asking because while on the surface, keeping my legos for my kids sounds like an amazing idea, i myself didn't play with my dad's toys for longer than 3 hours in my entire life.

      it's thrifty sure, but i don't think my kids are losing out on a lot by me getting rid of them. there will be legos to buy in the future that they would enjoy more. not bashing your idea, but I just wanted to bring this up and see what you thought.

    • Hamstar

      that works out awesome!!

      there's a LOT of ankle support in combat boots when properly laced...

      shocking, I havent roundhouse kicked anything in YEARS!! and I still managed to squarly nail that saw without injury

    • TheAlbacor

      yeah, that's what I' going to need to do.

      it was a great time!

      I had only logged in for a little bit, and I was surprised that Amy stayed up as long as she did.

      I usually play with the little hawk so he snacks me noms all the time.

      I was hoping that we would have time to beat the game so you could get the kisses acheivement (that's why I was throwing the fights), if you keep that character in that range, or we can do the levels where there is a boss (either or) we can get that for you some time.

      I didnt know what weapons/pets you had that's why I was pulling them out for you, as you could see at the armory I have all but 3 weapons, and all of the pets.

      Out of all of them, I preffer the hawk.

      I'm currently working on beating the game with each character to unlock the weapons I dont own, and the higher teir characters for fun.

    • Hamstar

      ah hell I forgot there's a demo!

      It's a meh so-so in length game.

      You can beat it in like 3 hours if you just go for the goal.

      It has fun replay as well.

      when I get everything up and running, my intention will be the ability to take custom orders.

      Right now just working out the logistics, I'm still learning the cost of everything, so I dont know how much it will cost to make a 1 off shirt

      it's not meant for phones. they are lazy and don't have a mobile version i think. not sure.

    • Desperado

      It really is. I never thought about it until this.

    • caleba04

      What do you mean? They had me learn a little about their programming language, Magic, and the rest of the programming was just logic. They create their software for physicians.

    • caleba04

      7 years ago

      I really don't know what I want to do. I just had an interest in software programming. I've taken 3 computer classes and have worked with HTML, Java, Javascript, C++, LaTeX, and Mathematica.

    • caleba04

      7 years ago

      So I just do random programming in my free time? What kind of programs?

    • TheAlbacor

      7 years ago

      It wasn't too bad, it just wasn't as good as the first one.

    • TheAlbacor

      7 years ago

      Yeah, it's pretty cool. I get to borrow any games I want and systems too.

      I'm gonna be setting up the arangements in around 3 weeks time, so I'll post the exact location then. (can't for the love of life remember where it is we are going atm)

      Some people have a simple file server at home, not to be outdone, you have a data center.


      Heck, I would even have a raised floor if I built the place myself! CAT5 pulled into every room and even cable trays.

      My name is Craig and I am a geek.

      I agree. The early episodes, Season 1 as a whole really, are still, and always will be my favorite.

      All they'd need to do is allow for watchlists to exclude images and it wouldn't make a difference.
