    cheers to hello kitty's beer buddy
  1. i don't think it's really that big of a deal, i mean - how many trackers are flagged private comparatively speaking? and the article did say that the flag is not honored by BC only when the tracker has been unavailable for a certain amount of time - and that is what DHT is for, right? i'm sitll using BC and still happy - no problems at all so far. i used Azureus before but it hogged to much CPU and the java was just a mess. i actually like BC better. those are the only two i've used so i don't know about others.
  2. bittorrent search engines are completely laden with porn ads, pop ups, hijack crap. all the biggies: isohunt, piratebay, mininova, etc etc etc. they're all gawdawful anymore. how annoying. does anyone know of any halfway decent (no pop ups, minimal ad intrusion) bittorrent search sites????
  3. omigawd, that male brain pic was too funny, raptor :haha:
  4. well, yeah, if you have cargo pants/shorts on. lotsa pockets. i can carry a whole lotta stuff without using a purse also....i just have my husb carry it all in HIS pockets. honestly, i have never needed much of a purse - wallet, lipstick, cell phone, keys and i'm good to go. of course, our wallets are always bigger than y'all's cause we have all of your money.
  5. there's been some scientific evidence to support the way that men and women are intelligent in different ways. something to do with us (women) using both sides of the brain simultaneously while men can only use one side at a time. gives a whole new meaning to 'one track mind'. http://www.yaleherald.com/archive/xix/3.2.95/news/rhyming.html http://www.cnn.com/2005/TECH/science/02/14/gender.brain/ http://today.uci.edu/news/release_detail.asp?key=1261
  6. whichever one spends the most time and money giving back something to the communities that made them so gawd-awfully rich. well....ok, right now i'm rather hooked on dennis leary in "rescue me", he's doing a great job with that show/role.
  7. nah, just set up a family LAN and you'll all be good little addicts together! now that's family time!
  8. indeed that's how it would end up, i'm sure - if not how it's actually intended. what an idiotic premise. sort of like the sense of smell via PC, didn't they have hype about that at some point in time? good luck to someone who's gonna try to strap a baby/toddler/young 'un into some contraption for a "hug" from the parent via computer. STUUUUPID. why not just let the person doing the strapping in give a nice hug instead. provided they're allowed. gawd i can't believe how stupid this is. give sight to the blind or sound to the deaf or cure cancer/aids, then i'm all fo
  9. it's absurd...i remember waaaaay back when - we used to make cassettes for each other of all the "cool" music (cause it wasn't played on the radio). you'd go to a party where someone had a bunch of good albums, or you'd meet a DJ at an "alternative night" who'd be nice, and you'd get cassettes made from your favorite albums. back then, bands like U2, REM, depeche mode, new order, alison moyet (yaz), front 242, sugarcubes, souxsie and the banshees, the smiths, etc etc etc et al. - you couldn't hear these on the radio in the 80's unless it was a college station. or maybe a few alt station
  10. why not put the turkeys in a pasture someplace and send some needy children to disney? duh. moronic politicians and beauracratic hooplah. i saw a turkey recipe on TV that involved brining for 6 hours then stuffing it with a quartered lemon, orange and fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme, sage) - then rub the outside with olive oil or butter and season with salt and pepper and orange/lemon zest (i guess you blend all those together and then rub) (me, i'd use chipotle powder and/or smoked paprika in there someplace. and beer!) not sure about the details, i wasn't paying that close at
  11. just use ME for the DL, then go back to FF. you can't beat $120 worth of mcafee software, swallow your hatred and use the evil beast! i have to use ME occasionally, but not often.
  12. i just found out about this offer of comcast's yesterday when i was searching around for parental controls for my son's PC (he's been hitting google lately after watching me use it a couple of times - google has some fun listings as i'm sure y'all have noticed - beastiality came up recently when i was searching for "kids laptop"). i wanted to be able to limit his use to just the websites that i have in his bookmarks. i loaded the virus scan on mine and the parental control one (privacy one) on his. lo and behold, with the privacy one - when you "block ads" alot of the little
  13. i have a whopping 6 gigs right now. old HD just bit the dust. luckily i did back up pics and songs just recently. shopping around now for an external. i say backup is the way to go, i'm glad i did!
  14. i have an 8 year old going on 15. he already has (hand me down from dad) and knows how to use a desktop PC, but asked for a "toy" laptop from santa, along with a digital camera. there really doesn't seem to be a whole lot out there when it comes to either. does anyone have any suggestions? i've perused the vtech line and the oregon scientific offerings and they are pretty much in the right price range, but man - you would think manufacturers could come up with some decent graphics! and they really seemed geared for really young kids. well, he is young, but he already re
