  1. Gotta have one for each kid there Jaguar! Dang, I take some time off and everyone starts poppin' kids out! Ok, so I took more then a little time off. Congratulations to you and your family Jaguar!
  2. Sweet looking hand gun there! I'm sure I could dig around up here in Alaska and find one, for a rather pretty penny or two! I'm sorry Jaguar...the donation bank has been robbed already. Maybe the SC will cough up a few coins for you.
  3. It must be Lurkers Return month! It's good to see you're still "lurking" around Akuma! Hope things continue to go well for you! You know, I have a rough enough time with English, I don't even want to think about what I would do with the Japanese language!
  4. DRATS, all my loose change is claimed!!
  5. Recover some?!? Gallion, did you haul him off to one of those off-beat, no-license taverns buried in the belly of some far off starstation, again?! Welcome back Rattler - though I still haven't seen you...
  6. Thanks All! Rumor has it that in Alaska one can tag-'n-bag bad 'uns in ones yard after dark!! [rp]Uh, but Officer, it looked like that thing was threating my daughter! How was I supposed to know that was a pen and not a stilleto?? [/rp] Reminder to self: polish shotgun, keep loaded 44 mag semi-auto close to hand.
  7. Thanks SC - On Christmas Eve, what service!! **** ...work-a-holics... they never seem to know when to take vacation.... ****
  8. I just now cought up on the gist of what has been happening in the last, er, several weeks?!? ** shakes head ** a bit dazed... What a read! Had a RANDOM headed up the skirt and didn't even know it. Imagin my surprise if SC hadn't self-destructed that RANDOM and I attempted a post, only...couldn't. I would have been so confused I probably would have formated my hard drive and reloaded everything just positive that Microsoft O/S had FUBARed again. From another thread SC: quote:AGAIN?!?! Where the hell do you find the time? I'm soooooo jealous! I suppose you're not allowed to bring your laptop into the bedroom then? Absolutely NOT! 'Puters stay just outside the bedroom door. While they can be warm they are a bit lumpy to sleep with! I find time 'cause I'm not trying to re-write the universe in 5 days. Take a break SC--more then just a 2 hr. road trip! Sheesh.... You live only once so spend a little time w/ your daughter and missus. I know, I know, work is piling up while your out... Just put an auto-reply on your email that says "Out to Lunch" and let everyone guess as to what you really mean! I take a look at all the differences in personalities, backgrounds, cultural variences, English skills, people skills, writing ability, communication abilities, and more when no 2 people are alike it's a wonder the board runs as smooth as it does!!! SC, I have a lot of respect for you, and for multiple reasons. One of which is your ability and willingness to forgive, forget, and/or appoligize when mistakes are made. Sometimes even publicly when the incident occured privately. Many "leaders" are to insecure and are afraid their fan base will vanish if they show this "weakness". I'm glad things have been reconsidered and are being worked out and the board is still breathing. I don't frequent, even infrequently, any other boards simply because I don't care for the trash on them. I like the standard established on this board and the character of the leaders (SC and the other leading members). If it means knocking a few heads now and then, so be it. If it means shoving someone out a 1-way airlock, so be it. Hamblin, IMO, got what he asked for. quote:...it could be some kind of IT equivalent of post partum as someone pointed out via email Yup, that was my thought as I started reading though this fiasco. I've seen it. LOTS!! 5 Babies and 7 pregnancies.... Seems like the harder one works on some deadline the bigger the drop and bounce when the moment is passed. There, that's my dollar's worth. Inflation...get you every time.
  9. Yep, that's right. Brianna Marie Wold joined our zoo Sept. 19th. And she is VERY vocal! Yes, we now have 5 kids... 1 boy and 4 girls.... 8 yrs (boy), 6 yrs, 4 yrs, 2 yrs, and newbord. Future: 4 teenage girls silmutaneously!! What have I got myself into.......
  10. HI SC! AWOL?!? Of course... The answer is always YES when one doesn't ask. Anyway, it has been a very interesting summer, fall, and early winter. Most of them actually very good, but hectic. One of the "things" was the addition of #5 kid - Brianna Marie - Sept. 19th!! Now off to enjoy the results of your many sleepless nights!
  11. quote:I just wanted to thank you, the testers and staunch fan base, for the support over the years and your dedication to this series. YOUR WELCOME!! Though due to the nature, quality, your dedication, and depth of the game this support base doesn't surprise me a bit. Now if you had made something like Windows and generated this kind of support I would wonder what kind of cult you where running. And thanks for letting me be a beta tester, even though I disappered around May for a bit, it was a GREAT experience... well, there was a time or two there when I screwed up...

  13. I'm still here so don't count me out too fast! Been very busy this summer.... 2 jobs..baby due ..basement remodel.. yada yada yada....
  14. I LIKE! Nice contrast to the SS too...makes it easy to see. The only "suggestion" I have would be to move the F a little closer to the l in the Balor Fleet heading. All-in-all, great work! PS, I'm still on the archaic dial-up and it loaded just fine! [ 07-08-2001: Message edited by: Wold ]
  15. Great work Manchise! Looks like I should dig up a pic for you.
  16. I had better get landing clearance... So, I'm offically requesting landing clearance

    Welcome

    Welcome Aboard! [rp] Now if I could keep these blasted lemmings out of my navigation system I'ld be able to show up more often.... [/rp]
  18. ROFL!! You 3 are hysterical! Quite the BMP (bad mental picture) you all created there.....
  19. True Tac. But, IMO 80% of the time it's the main board that's fried so that's why I yank everything first. Tac mentioned static and necessity of grounding. He's right. For those who are unfamiliar with how to do that..... A static strap really should be used along with a mat. Most users don't have them laying around and if you don't know what I'm talking about, you won't have one. Use the following method to ground yourself if you don't have a static strap. This isn't the best method, but it is better then none. If possible move the PC to a room w/out carpet. Before touching ANY boards, touch the case on any unpainted metal area. Remove the card and place it face (component side) down preferably somewhere on the case. Touch only the edges of card and the mounting bracket. DONT touch the back side of the card or the GOLD colored edge (contacts) IF ADDING a card: place new card, still in anti-static package, on the PC case. Keeping constant contact with the case, then open the package and remove the card by the mounting bracket. WHY all this headache? Simple movement of an arm w/ certain fabric and one becomes a static stun-gun. Remember: With today's soft-touch power up systems there is ALWAYS power to the systemboard even when it is "off". Which means, NEVER plug anything into the motherboard when the AC power cord is plugged into the PC. Unless of course you are looking for an excuse to buy new hardware. Even better, but a few more steps: Unplug the PC Disconnect the powersupply cables to the motherboard (should be 2 cable bundles) Plug the AC powercord back in. Why? This keeps the PC case truely grounded, assuming house wiring is correct. DO the necessary work, add/remove cards etc, constantly touching the pc case. Unplug the AC powercord Reconnect the powersupply cables to the motherboard (both of them) Install cover and plug the AC power back in. There, if that was as clear as mud I'm sure I can make it worse! [ 04-21-2001: Message edited by: Wold ]
  20. Thankyou for your vote of confidence there Jaguar, but I'm not sure that I'ld go quite that far. Fact is I almost busted my spleen from laughing when I read that line. Steve, I'ld have to say that your problem has probably been covered in the above posts. Gateway isn't the only one that formats the drive and reloads to factory defaults...that's SOP for most of those tech support lines. In my experience hard drives, CD Roms, Zip Drives, CDRW, and DVDs all have their own internal POST (power on self test) and their activity lights will flash (regardless of motherboard, CPU, memory, or bios status) during this test. Pop the top off that pc and see if your fans are kicking on. IF not, then that CPU is sure to be fried. When facing your issue, I do what Tac suggested, but in reverse. I remove EVERYTHING then add memory, then video card, etc. back in, 1 at a time. May your PC ills be short lived....

  23. Just an update. With EMMENSE relief My wife had her first official baby checkup and everything is going great! At 12 weeks the baby's heart is thump'n and baby is also moving around. See, my wife has had several miscarriages and last time I was within a day of starting a new thread anouncing a comming baby when she had her miscarriage. So it was with many prayers and some anxiety about opening this thread B4 the doctor visit. ------------------ Commodore Wold ICV-Drakr, Spectre HQ (Antis) Commanding Officer, Spectre HQ Spectre Fleet ICQ 4669033 "You can only love or hate something you truly understand"
