I don't even remember him. I haven't watched the Simpsons in ages, either. It sucks missing all my tv shows. I'm only gonna mention that about a dozen more times on this forum. :p

Glad you like the music, Defender. Any song requests? :D

mrdefender
28th Nov 2002, 19:13
YMCA!!! YMCA!!!!! :)

hehe.

Im not much for a music listener. I only listen to music when my sister wants to listen to music on the radio or when he puts her stereo volume too high..

I'm more of a "soundtrack" kinda guy. I listen mostly to movie or game songs.

I Like Hell Above Water. I forget who sings it but it was one of the songs of the Spider-man trailers... Which didnt make it in the sound track :eek:

Can you believe it... None of the songs they used for their trailers made it to their soundtrack :D

wierd... :)

Hell Above Water sounds like this:

Dan Dan Dan Dan Dan.... Dan Dan Dan Dan Dan...

notices how much not helpful this description is :)

You try sounding out a song using typing ;)

You can try to find a site that allows u to listen to "previews" (first 30 seconds) of songs.

Rook
28th Nov 2002, 20:18
Dear God, not the VILLAGE PEOPLE! :eek:

***sigh***

Ok, you win. But I'm not sure YMCA has quite the same effect on acoustic guitar. :p :D

Most of the movie trailers are extras on the DVD version, but I don't recall hearing any different music that stuck out well enough that I would notice. (And I wish they would have had more outtakes on the disc!) Guess I'll have to go back and take a look again.

I thought maybe you were just trying to remember something about someone named Dan... ;) :p

Did u see the news? They're working (its already been done but working on it) on "self-destructing" dvds. A chemical that would make the DVD useless in a period of time.

They put the article in the context of "late fees" from renting dvds. and how you could throw them out.

Suffice it to say I was more than curiosed. Apparently, MGM was the first company who made such a DVD for promoting Die Anothre Day (the latest Bond movie). The disposable DVD was full of promotional content; trailers, pictures, music, interviews and such. Stuff ud find as "special features" on DVDs

Painful to read, isn't it?;) It's no wonder yellow isn't an actual text color option on these forums. You have to type it in yourself to use it. Heck, I didn't even know it worked until a few days ago. I wonder what other colors work...?:D

The rotten banana just looks icky, though.:o

no, spam is more like the same msg more than 3 times.

Email spam is like junk mail.

I keep getting a spam about a septic tank. whatever that is. (well. its not like every day but i get it once every 2 months or so)

Rook
8th Dec 2002, 23:35
And forum spam is like junk posts--like the ones I've just used to play around with the unavailable color assortment.:o :D

My emails seem to get nothing but spam. And it's the kind the email provider won't let you cancel. Kinda sucks. I don't know why I bother having so many email addresses just for that... :o

:)

mrdefender
9th Dec 2002, 06:27
i only got 2 email addresses. well. 3...

1 is my "main account" email/account for my ISP. which sorta is the one i have to keep "active"

another one is my own email address from my ISP.

And I got another free-web mail for no reason. I just used it so I could check my POP3 email from school at the time.

Oh. POP3 is the type of mail Outlook Express uses (excluding "hotmail")

Rook
9th Dec 2002, 06:55
I've got 5 email addresses--all web-based. I don't need near that many, so I don't have a good explanation for having them all. My ISP email has never worked, and I don't feel like bothering to fix it. I use one of them exclusively for junk mail (ordering catalogs, etc), and the rest of them are either for regular mail, or for putting in my profiles on various message boards.

I'm weird.... :D

mrdefender
9th Dec 2002, 16:46
do u check all of em?

Cause If u put ur non-main email on here.. and u want to be notified of a reply to ur post... ;)

Rook
10th Dec 2002, 10:44
I only end up checking them about once a week, and sometimes not even that often. And they are always, and I mean always full of junk mail (the kind a web-based email account won't filter out:mad: ) and nothing else. I'd check them more often if there were something worth seeing, but two years of nothing but spam makes a person lazy about keeping up with their mail... :o :D

mrdefender
10th Dec 2002, 20:15
that makes sense. Doesnt the webmail have one of those "inactive for too long = account cancelation" like hotmail...

(but hotmail doesnt consider your MSN account as "using" ur hotmail...)

Rook
11th Dec 2002, 07:23
Yeah, but I don't usually let them go for quite that long. Just often enough to keep them active and clean out all the useless news updates and *special offers*. :)

Sir Henry Morgan
12th Dec 2002, 02:39
Yeah I had that but my new server only allows one email address! :rolleyes:

mrdefender
12th Dec 2002, 02:49
oooooooooh. 1. wow. :) High Tech stuff :D

My ISP provides (:eek:) 7 email addresses!!!!!!!!

You can get 1 email for each ip (we got 3 but my sis uses hotmail) + the freebie you get for signing up with the ISP (and its ur main account, so u need that one to log into services).

Ok. How many computers does someone need??? U'd need an ip for an extra computer, to have 7 emails would require 7 ips which means 7 computers on a home network (lan).

Not even bill gates has that many computers at home!

Well.. unless u count his tech art (his art collection are flat comp screens. :D

Outlook express allows severe filtering parameters.

Em. I dunno if severe is the right word, but it allows "strong" filters.

U can have it say that if it has even 1 of these words, delete it.

Rook
13th Dec 2002, 09:14
I haven't really bothered with any filtering. What am I gonna filter? Separating the junk mail into "worthy" and "unworthy" categories? :rolleyes: ;) :D

mrdefender
13th Dec 2002, 17:21
U might not be able to filter it 100% but adding some words (adult words) would filter those out. Its a start :)

U can aslo add domains to be filtered (@someone.com). And i think theres a "only accept people from my address book" filter.

Rook
14th Dec 2002, 07:00
I don't have anybody in my address book. I just don't know many people.:o :)

speaking of which. I contacted my ISP for spam help they refered me to spamcop.com (free if u can wait the 6-8 seconds) and the download.com website (to find a spam killer).

I use spamcop. Its easy and good.

The thing is they send u a email address (that u can forward the spam to) and a website (both are "links" so u can copy and paste) and i booked marked it and added it in my "links" folder. The other little menu under the address bar in IE).

I got 6 spams today. 5 adult and 1 about something called RODOS. whatever that is. I get alot from this RODOS thing.

I tried to unsubscribe (but most spam mail's unsubscribe is the opposite, it verifys the email is valid and then u never see the end of it) and used my fake email (mrdefender@somewhere.com) and it said thankyou for unsubscribing. ... :)

Nice to know someone who's not subscribed can unsubscribe himself :D

I could probably do with gaining a bit of weight--and some arms, now that I think of it...

But that's beside the point. I'm an official monkey selling pyrate, and I'm darned proud of it! Thanks Pike Masters! Methinks I'll have to fix me up another sig that adequately reflects my shiny new prestige. :D

Yeah, I was gonna mention the lack of skin thing, too. Oops! I could probably use a bit of that. Then again, if I've done OK without it up till now, it can't be that big a concern. I'm just a little tired of having to pick things up with my teeth, though.:eek: :o :D

Ah.

I guess the skin thing wouldnt be much of an issue, u need skin to be alive (protect from sun's radiation and protect organs too). Not to mention the Buffy's last Season Finale :) (willow goes crazy).

But if u only have bones, its not like u have organs that need to be protected from radation :)

So how you feelin' today? (December 18th)


EDIT: Ok. I'm currently doing synchronized lyrics for "One Week" (by Barenaked Ladies) and, em... Its insane!!!

I'm only 40 seconds in the song and there's 24 lines done!!
There's like 6 words said in less than a second!

Thats like not humanly possible!!!! This is rediculous! I cant wait to see the synchronized lyrics. It will be so fast my 2GHZ will crash :D

Whether or not that's really a good thing is debatable. I'd rather have stayed in bed... http://www.click-smilie.de/sammlung/schlafen/schlafen015.gif

Now what are you doing with this music thingy again? :confused:

:D

mrdefender
19th Dec 2002, 20:40
In Windows Media Player 9 (its a beta, but can be downloaded by anyone at the wmp site), you can synchronize lyrics.

So you can have it say at 00:01:20:250 to "say" (show) a line.

(thats HH:MM:SS:MS. ... Hours, Minutes, Seconds, Mili-seconds (or the thing right after/before seconds).

So at 00:01:20:250 you can show a lyric, and at 00:01:29:000 you can show another one.

But in Barenaked Ladies' One Week. Its insane. There's like 10 lines in 5 seconds. :)

So its like 00:01:250, line 1l 00:02:000, line 2....

by 30 seconds, 40% of the song is done :D

Its awesome.

Leave you far behind is probobly the shortest song. Its only got 5 lines of lyrics (but it gets repeated around 5 times). Its one of the songs that was featured on one of the Spider-man trailers. Its included in the Matrix Soundtrack (but I cant recall where in that movie it plays).

Satelite (Tomb Raider movie soundtrack) is just 1 word, but it repeats for like 4 mins. It's easy to do. U just add one line at the time the first word is said (satelite) then u can leave it there. cause it will stay on the screen until u play another song :)

Rook
20th Dec 2002, 08:09
Heehee. I might just have to look into that.:D

mrdefender
20th Dec 2002, 19:40
It's awesome. U can even change the colors of WMP.

It also has "auto-playlists". You can choose from many catagories.

* Favorites - ### stars (you can rate the songs)
* Favorites - Have not heard recently
* Favorites - Listen on Weekdays (and another 1 for Weekends)
* High or Low bitrate (I know where u can see the bitrate but as far as I know, it determines quality ?? )

And may more auto-playlists.

Ofcourse, New skins. And a really neat new feature, its called "Mini-player".

When u minimize the media player, it appears on your taskbar (where ur windows appear at the bottom of the screen, along with the clock, system tray (little icons to the right), quick launch (icons to the left) and start menu.)

You'd think their popups would be enough.

U have a program that keeps telling u to register (which brings u to a ms page with their advertisments) or windows update...

I never considered about it before i saw that message :)

:eek: :eek: :eek:

Pike Masters
18th Jan 2003, 21:17
If yer aint afeared then why aint ye appeared at tha Flamin Badger, an took up yer duties as official pyrate monkey sellers

The first thing a pyrate needs to do is find a tavern

Part of yer duties involve drinkin rum

The Flamin Badger be the name of a tavern

Where pyrates drink rum

Now ole Pikey here aint in the business of shewin, wet by the ears, Johnny come lately, newly found pyrates how to find a tavern, if every swab I had on me ship needed ta be shewed where to find a drink, Pikey would be foreffer shewin swabs where ta find a drink

Now tis yer duties mateys

Duty number one, Find the Flamin Badger Tavern

Duty number two, Sell monkeys

Simple

In the course of your employ ye will be trained in pyrate arts such as snail racin, gamblin an robbin, but yer furst and expected of any seaman worth his salt, god given duty is ta find a place to quench yer thirst

Now I realise you'se two pyrates has only jus bin promoted, an might neffer heard the like of tha Flamin Badger tavern, so I am prepared ta make a concession fer ye bein remiss in yer duties thus far, but ta find tha tavern ye jus needs to follow the direction of me good friend Henry Morgan, who is currently in hiding as he is afeared of losing the biggest pyrate racing snail extravaganza ever ta hit tha carib

And fer tha snail race to go ahead, as every good pyrate knows, monkey sellers are a absolute necessity

Now I would simply link the tavern to here, It is located in the Seadogs 2 forum, and frequently spammed as low as page 16, so yer not gonna git any problem bout spammin

If yer aint afeared get out there mateys

Live a little

Git sellin dem monkeys

It does look a bit like that, doesn't it. I haven't played Myst (the original one) for aaages! :eek:

mrdefender
19th Jan 2003, 21:39
I got it for my bday the same year it came out. I couldnt get enough of it.

Did you follow the sequels? (Riven, Myst3: Exile)

I wasn't very fond of Riven (until I read the walkthrough). It was wierd... You started off with nothing to do (kinda). Myst had stuff close by that lead to another thing, and to another, and another, etc...

Riven just placed you there and u had to figgure out what to do.. :/ It was still a fun game when you got the hang of it.

Myst 3 was awesome. 'Natural' (remember, the worlds are actually a story book...) landmarks were keys to getting to the final level/boss level. The Boss is Ensign Sueter (??) from Voyager (died when the Kazon relocated the crew on a unstable planet, Seuter and the EMH got control of the ship).

Acording to the IMDB site... (http://us.imdb.com/Name?Dourif,%20Brad)

His Real Name is Brad Dourif
His character in Myst3 is named Saavedro
His character in ST:Voyager is "Lon Suder" (he's a betazedian.. or whatever you call someone from Betazed.)

Rook
19th Jan 2003, 21:50
I only got to play a short segment of the original Myst years ago when it first came out. I was over at a friends house at the time. I don't remember if I liked it or not. I just remember that her speakers were up waaay too loud, and neither her nor I knew how to turn them down. Yeah, I was a stupid kid...:o

By the way, that screenshot of my tavern is from a very cool game called Vagrant Story. I highly recommend it, even if I haven't yet played it to the end. It's got a great medieval-type atmosphere (which I love in games), some fantastic monsters to beat up, bosses galore, and a pretty interesting storyline. It also has about the best battle system for an RPG that I've ever seen! Lot's of spells and fighting techniques in there! And, of course, the graphics are cool, even if it's only a PS1 title. I'm sure they have it out for PC somewhere...;) :D

mrdefender
19th Jan 2003, 23:55
the Myst series requires the volume to be somewhat louder than normal. The sounds can be clues for some puzzle.

I know there was an 'age' (another level/story book) where the puzzle was a keyboard (musical keyboard). where you had to enter notes in the proper sequence to open the vault with the book inside (book=portal to another level/'age').

Rook
20th Jan 2003, 00:51
Maybe it's supposed to have a pretty good volume to it, but hers was up so ungodly loud that it actually made the sound muffled, so you really couldn't tell what anyone was saying anyway.

Either that, or it was just me covering my ears in pain...LOL:D

mrdefender
20th Jan 2003, 01:44
The Myst series are amazing. I cant get enough of it.. well.. I did get enough of it after finishing it 20 times.. At one point, you just cant get amazed with the game like u used to in the first 1-5 times. :)

I got envelopped in the story-line and found myself stuck in it. Good game(s) :)

Rook
20th Jan 2003, 02:00
Unfortunately, I haven't had much of a chance to play them any further. I should try and look them up again. At the time, though, the first one was so loud, I couldn't even understand what the game was supposed to be about. :eek: :o :D

mrdefender
20th Jan 2003, 03:56
I dont think they make the 'original' anymore. But there is this 'Myst: Masterpiece' edition. It's, basicly, the same as the original Myst (same 'story' and stuff). Only difference between the original and Masterpiece, is that Masterpiece features Direct3D/OpenGL compatibility (i.e looks more 3d compared to today.. than it did compared to 10 years ago..).

Old 3d has more of cubes than hills.. Masterpiece brings it closer to todays 3d technology.

Rook

mrdefender
20th Jan 2003, 20:42
It's fun. If you like puzzles. There's no action in the game. so if your an action maniack, you'll be disapointed.

Same goes for the Riven and Myst3 games. The most action you would get would be in the in-game movies. Or you being confined.

Rook
21st Jan 2003, 07:46
Hey, I don't mind puzzle games. They're not what I usually play, but if it's interesting enough, I'll try just about anything.

Ok, anything but sports stuff....

:o :D

Never found sports games very interesting.. (tv, movie, game..)

Not much of a sports fan..

Give me sci-fi any day ;)

Rook
21st Jan 2003, 09:41
I don't mind a few sports movies (Remember the Titans, Hoosiers, Rudy, etc), even the more fantasy-based ones (Field of Dreams, The Natural...), but I never have cared for watching real sports or playing sports games. I'll probably be on the computer during the Superbowl.:D

I much prefer sci-fi, too. I'm also a big fantasy game freak (vampires, dragons, monsters, knights, that sort of thing). :cool:

mrdefender
21st Jan 2003, 20:43
?? I thought the 'fantasy' you mentioned was sci-fi.. ?? Oh well, i guess I'd better play it safe and say im into fantasy too :)

The only sports-like movies I saw was 'The Rookie' (recent movie.. about the baseball player guy.. forgot his name.. was a teacher, played in the mlb at 35...) and Roller Ball (not really a sport.. but its closer to a sport than anything..

RollerBall was a somewhat odd movie. The game is a ball around a 8 designed (looks like and 8 from above). and a ball drops down and you have to run drive/skate around the track twice and drop/throw the ball in the other team's goal.

Somewhat a reverse capture the flag (you take your flag to their base, not their flag to your base..)

Oh! I do play sports!! (to a very extreme degree). I play alot of CTF in my PC games ;) :D

Rook
22nd Jan 2003, 09:52
OK, let me think...

Sci-fi: aliens, spaceships, time travel, technology, science, etc.
Fantasy: monsters, magic, mythical lands, and a complete disregard for science ;)

Anyway, that's how I'd classify them, and I really do like both types of movies--or books, cartoons, whatever. I'd probably prefer the fantasy genre, but there are very few well-made examples of fantasy film/television. Because of that, I usually end up watching more sci-fi stuff.

mrdefender
22nd Jan 2003, 23:06
aliens can be considered monsters...

those vulcan look-alikes (TNG, not romulans..) considered picard to be a god (and magic.. blah. blah...)...

Mythical lands, Holodeck :)

Complete disregard for Science; I can think of a number of episodes where science goes right out the airlock.. :)

Rook
23rd Jan 2003, 07:09
All very true. Still, as I would classify them, sci-fi involves more techno-stuff, fantasy is mythical-stuff (gods and monsters). Then again, I've seen some weird movies like White Dwarf that basically qualify as both.:)

mrdefender
23rd Jan 2003, 21:06
Yah. The problem is alot of those sci-fi channels have alot of fiction in it (not just science fiction).

But everything is science.. (well. you know what I mean...)...

:)

But im not gonna turn this into a war thread :) Both types are awesome.

Rook
24th Jan 2003, 09:33
Which is why quite a lot of the forums I'm on just call it scifi-fantasy, and heap everything related to either genre into the same category. I think it's a bit better that way. Makes it easier to keep up with the cool movies, books and games all in one place.:D

mrdefender
24th Jan 2003, 21:24
Yah. Some forums/sites/tv stations/etc.. name just one of the genres but show both. wierd..

I never got those.. (as in, I dont get it..)

Chances are, whatever goes thru the ground and ends up in china, would melt not even halfway there (we have something called a 'core' ... its not exactly the coolest place on earth.)

Lets see... what other old shows did I see...


Well.. ST:TOS .. ofcourse :)

Thunderbirds (International Rescue thing...)
OOOH! The 60's Batman & Robin. The one where he has everything from a BatHankey to a laser in his utility belt...

Em.. Well.. Dr. Who..
Transformers :) (the original).

What I hate is that they removed the old episodes/series to make way for the new series... :(

I'm not ashamed that I still watch cartoons. Well.. Are animes considered cartoons? ?? Cartoons = animated drawings.. Animes = Japanese Animated Drawings... :/

Hey! I still watch cartoons, too. Not many anime ones, though. Last time I watched those, it was Voltron.:D I still like my X-Men and Spider-Man cartoons (though I don't really care for the newer, movie-inspired versions), a few Disneys, and, of course, Loony Tunes. I miss all my old 80's cartoons, though. Kidd Video, Smurfs, Ghostbusters, etc...

Lets see.. what cartoons do I watch... :/

The Simpsons and King Of The Hill..

I used to watch Pokemon (i dont know anyone who never got pulled into this adictive craze...). Oh. Transformers (all series). ... :/ I used to watch power rangers. I liked those zords things :) they were cool. didnt care much for the .. people in it. Though some bad guys looked really well made.

I watch (from time to time) DBZ. .. I dont watch alot of tv.

My TV Schedule
3PM - 4PM - Touched By An Angel
4PM - 5PM - ST: Voyager or ST:DS9 (depending on which one i like most)
5PM - 6PM - ST: Voyager
6PM - 630PM - Simpsons
630 - 8PM (i just leave tv on and play computer games).
8PM buffy the vamp slayer :)

Mondays, 10PM - CSI Miami
Mondays, 11PM - CSI (first season.. )
Thursdays, 9PM - CSI (new episodes). Sometimes starts @ 8 for B2B episodes.

Wensdays 10PM - ST Enterprise :)
Sundays 8PM - ST Enterprise (plays on another chanel but is a repeat of wensday's episode.)

Hmm.. I watch 3 1/2 hours a day of tv. 5 1/2 on mondays, 4 1/2 on wensdays and thursdays..

So.. my tv avg per week is?? 13hrs and 30 minutes of tv.. give or take ..

Thats not that bad.. half of a day of tv in a period of 7 days? Considering my sleeping hours would tally up to 3 days :rolleyes: :D

I don't really have anything I watch regularly, or even semi-regularly, anymore. I just caught an episode of Smallville tonight for the first time in over a month. I don't even bother trying to tape them anymore. All my favorite shows are either already on tape, or I just end up watching movies. Oh well..... :rolleyes: :D

mrdefender
3rd Feb 2003, 04:51
wow. i got 1300 posts...

Yah. I dont tape them either. Well.. Cause I watch em when it plays (so I dont need to tape them to watch em later...).

The only thing my vcr is doing is acting as a sort of table for my cd holders :)

Rook
3rd Feb 2003, 05:47
Yeah, I noticed that. ;)

Aw, well just about every flat surface in my house is a "table" for something else. And nothing ever stays neat for very long... :o

Really? Wow. Your like my sister. She's got somewhat more stuff than I do (but I have more, I just have it organized...).

U walk in her room, u trip and fall down..

U walk in my room, you get amazed on how much space I have :rolleyes:

I've got like 10 boxes of stuff at the back of my room. in my closet. She's got like 10 boxes of stuffed animals alone... :/

Nah, my room's a horrifying mess. The bad part is, if I try to clean it up, I can't find anything I'm looking for afterward. Wacky....

I need a file cabinet or two, some extra shelves, another dresser, and a bigger room to fit all that stuff in. LOL :D

mrdefender
5th Feb 2003, 18:36
Ah. I see.. So your one of those reversed-organised people :)

Not me. Id go nuts trying to find my stuff in a mess...

Whats the expression? Finding a needle in a haystack? :)

If I cant find it, there are 4 posibilites.

1) My sister borrowed it.
2) My dad borrowed it.
3) 1 of my 3 cats must've taken it and played with it (like if its a small piece of paper, or a binder clip, or something cats can play with..)

4) It's right under my nose and im too busy blaming other people to see it :rolleyes:

Has this ever happend to you? You're looking for something, you checked a spot out like there was a slight chance of gold there, you look else where and it pops up where you first looked (the 'gold' thing). ?? You could swear that it wasnt there before, but you cant cause it will make you look crazy (if you swear it, it means that u suggest it just walked to that place...)

Looking for stuff is freaky sometimes...

PS: Borrowed is ittalicized cause its not quite borrowed but its not quite stealing.. Stealing = taking something that isnt yours and not asking for it... But I eventually find it and I get it back... so its kinda in the middle of both (borrowed and stole)

That one definitely applies to me when I'm at work. Of course, a lot of the time, things will go missing because people have actually taken them. But then, the rest of the time, I'll throw a fit coz I can't find something, only to find out later that it was exactly where it should be.

I blame it on the stress of the job... :rolleyes: ;) :D

Do you watch fraiser? You know 'Bulldog' ? He does the same thing :)

Rook
8th Feb 2003, 11:27
Yep, I remember him.:D

I used to watch it back in its first couple of seasons or so, then I just drifted away from it for whatever reason... :o

mrdefender
8th Feb 2003, 19:06
Me too. The only new episodes are at the same time another one of my episodes plays... :(

Apparently, this season is the last one for Fraiser.

I don't know why I stopped watching it. I don't really have any other shows I watch. Just lost track of it, I guess.

By the time I miss a certain number of episodes of any show, I usually stop watching rather than trying to make sense of what happened during the time I wasn't there--particularly if it's a program with an ongoing plot where each episode is pretty much crucial to understanding the whole series.

mrdefender
9th Feb 2003, 07:53
I do the same, unless its a good show. (like startrek)

Rook
10th Feb 2003, 01:17
Yeah, that's probably the biggest reason why I could never get into Babylon 5. I missed at least the first couple of seasons, and, since it appeared to be an ongoing plot, I would just be in the middle of something. Oh well... :rolleyes:

:D

Oooh I loved B5. It was awesome. The movies were awesome too (well, its one of those tv only movies...). I miss B5 :(

Rook
10th Feb 2003, 04:01
Don't they have that show on tape, too?

If not, they should!:)

mrdefender
10th Feb 2003, 05:28
I dont know... :(

I haven't seen any B5 tapes..

But someone out there must've recorded an episode and still has it on tape.. but who... :rolleyes:

:D

Havent heard much b5 news in a loooooong time.

They have them available on DVD at Amazon.com. I would imagine they're also available on video there. Now, where to find the money for them.....? :o :D

mrdefender
10th Feb 2003, 21:20
bah! :mad:

I hate those online sites. Most of em are credit-card only :( EBGames, Amazon, game websites that have subscription to all content (like IGN's "Subscriber" that has access to everything on their site and dont have a download limit).

Rook
11th Feb 2003, 08:24
Yeah, that is kinda bad. I don't really have a credit card either.:(

But, at least they do have them on video, which means you might be able to locate them in a video store or a catalog that isn't credit card only. :)

Heh. I would honestly do it.. If I had any way of getting there. We have no mode of transportation...

We had a car, it kept going crazy. we put like 1k in it to 'fix' it. ... then the motor went poof... which needs another 2K to fix that...

We borrow the van my uncle (father's brother) has. we have it for wensday and thursday this week (incase u dont reply today... tuesday).

We're gonna go look for ecks vs sever too :) it apparently came out on xmas eve :/ (on dvd)

Rook

We've got 4 cars and, as of a few days ago, none of them were running. We've now managed to fix just 1. Rather embarrassing... :o

:D

mrdefender
12th Feb 2003, 19:00
Not as embarassing as have just 1 one and it doesnt work.. we didnt even fix it yet :( (its too expensive, I doubt we'll be fixing it unless we win the lottery, we've only had it for about 4 months now and we've already put 1K in.. we're not eager to put another 2k in it..)
