  1. Happy birthday! Drink a few on me! (Just don't put them on my tab!!). Idaho
  2. Good. Now you better post up some pictures of Deep Space Objects when you get some, or I'll have to hunt you down. Idaho
  3. quote:Originally posted by Remo: I can agree with you there, but... If teachers are paid to teach facts, then why aren't our children taught that our forefather's came to this land, raped and killed the current inhabitants and took ALL the land from them. Heh, actually, that was just what I was taught. 30+ years ago, in fact. I guess not all schools are equal. I do see your point, though. History can be remarkably biased towards the 'winning team', as it were. For the record, I've also been enjoying this thread. Great opinions being voiced here. Idaho
  4. Menchise has a good point. Adding to it: The teacher's paid to teach facts, not opinions. If the teacher wants to spread opinion, let them come here with the rest of us. Idaho
  5. lol make up your mind! Just go buy Mt. Palomar observatory and get it over with. Idaho
  6. I live near Portland Maine, where the teacher was disparaging soldiers, and the effort towards war in Iraq. Much ado about nothing, if you ask me. The real problem was when other children picked up on the teacher's sentiments, and started harassing the kids who's parental units were military. Freedom of speech should be a given today. However, when children enter the picture, I do believe you need to be more cautious. I think the current administration will crack down on free speech, though. I'm sure they will in fact. They're cracking down on all our freedoms, why should free speech be left out? Idaho
  7. I got demoted too. Lt. Commander to Ensign, big step, that. Guess this place runs by the 'What have you done for me lately' rules, heheh. On your machine: Sounds like your hard disk ribbon cable(s) have been unplugged. (I'd think your disk failed, but sounds more like something's been unplugged, since no drives show up at all; you should be seeing at least 1 hard disk and a CD drive in that list). I'd then open the puppy up and check those cables at both ends to be sure they're plugged in. Then check to be sure all your cards are firmly seated in their slots. Another thing to check: The drives could possibly be 'turned off' in your BIOS. On most systems, you hit delete after you turn the machine on, (it usually says what key to press to enter 'setup' at the bottom of the screen while it counts memory). Be careful of what you change in there, though. You should write down any changes you make, in case you mess up, so you can be sure to change it back after. Good luck, man.

  8. I actually don't see the point in this. Consider: The government takes care of the vets, and should. They take care of the monuments and war memorials, too. (Not saying they do a great job or bad job, but it's part of their job). I don't blame Target, and would, personally, rather see them help the 30+ million impoverished people here in this great land. Just the opinion of a US Navy veteran. Oh, and...uhh...Grayfox...'lay structural charges'? Over this? Sounds quite a bit like 'terrorism' to me, dude. Idaho
  9. Heheh, ATM junkie...I like that one. Fits me as well. I haven't actually entered my bank in...7 months? Maybe more? I also love online banking. I get no 'paper' bills anymore, all switched over to Email. My only worry there is; what happens when one of these fools actually do manage to shut down the Net with some kind of attack? If I don't get my 'bill', what then? How can I pay if the Net is down? Guess I'll find out if someone does manage to knock out the Net. Idaho
  10. Good God, I'm glad I didn't get that game when I saw it. I'm also glad you're workin' for you, (and us!), and not for Activision. Idaho
  11. Happy birthday Jaguar. Now go make your old bosses PAY! Muahahahah! Idaho
  12. I guess it makes sense...in a sort of twisted sort of way. However, I have an observation here: When I look at our local 'college kids' here, (Bates College), the young women AND men all have watches that cost more than my Geforce 3 did brand new. I'm guessing they got them from their parents. I've had a lot of girlfriends, and not one of them ever got a watch from me. Bracelets, yeah...necklaces or earings, perhaps. A watch? Not a gift I'd buy a girl. My current girl wears a Timex. She bought it herself. Another point, every girlfriend I can think of that I bought a nice gift for reciprocated somewhere down the line. I'm not sure if that's average, but I'd like to think it is. Maybe I'm just lucky I've never been with a golddigger. Or maybe I'm just too cheap to attract one. That said, I'm not young. Perhaps it's different with kids these days. I'll be interested in seeing other responses here. Idaho
  13. One year closer to THE END! "Run, rabbit run...dig that hole...forget the sun...and when at last the day is done...don't sit down, it's time to dig another one." -Pink Floyd: Time Thought that line fit the occasion, (not to mention the nick). Idaho
  14. Doesn't look much better than Homeworld graphically...save for the backgrounds. Mind you, I still love Homeworld. I hope it's better than Homeworld: Cataclysm, which I found vaguely disappointing. Idaho
  15. Use binoculars and pretend? Just a thought...poor guy. Idaho
