I've found one fault to the laptop. It seems to not like Firefox at all. Tried using that only and found the laptop to lock up three times within half an hour. Stopped using it last night and I've been fine since. I won't say I'm 100% good for now but I'm happy to find a solution to keep it more stable for the time being.

Go all out and get a desktop :P

I want to have a desktop but it's hard to time good space for it when my bedroom is too fucking small for it. Not only that, I could use it in my sister's bedroom but it'll be awkward when she's up here. The only other place is out in the conservatory but that room doesn't give you any privacy so I'm stuck with using a laptop.

Yeah, it may be an error with the mainboard, but it could be some other weird things as well. Those kind of errors are very hard to locate.

Heh, I found one problem. Sucks how I can't use Firefox now since I was using that for secondary accounts on Facebook and Newgrounds.

If this isn't something the computer shop nearby can do, I may have to get a brand new laptop which would suck since if I had another year of warranty for the laptop, I could easily take it the shop I got it from and I wouldn't have to spend a couple of hundreds of quid just for a new laptop. I do have more than enough money for another laptop, it's a matter of commitment to spend that much just three years after getting this one.
It sure does suck, especially if the laptop still is in good condition otherwise. But locating and fixing the error could cost more than to buy a new one. :/

Yeah, if it turns out your money would be better off getting a new laptop, I'd have to do that.

Also, I'd rather go for a desktop PC :P

Read my response to Odyssic and you'll understand.

Now we have this which neither of us can debate about?
We need to find other things to argue about!

You were talking to Coop about Futurama. Can I join in?

This Friday, you will hear the recap.
Is this just a coincidence that I at first read "crap" instead of "recap"?

I wouldn't blame you.

Damn straight! It doesn't matter what the fanbase is for, those lunatics are always bad. However, some are far beyond pathetic.
Sometimes they can be funny (as in so stupid all you can do is laugh), but most of the time they are annoying. Especially if two fanboys argue about their fanboyism.

I need some examples.

I can see that happening, but then again, we wouldn't be the first to overestimate the technological development of the next ten years.

Overestimating technology has happened before and I suppose it will happen again. Not related to video games but I want to see spaceships and such. Not the NASA kind rockets, spaceships that you see in sci-fi. :P Something like that probably won't happen until well after I'm gone. Ah well.

This is not how it should be.

I really hope so myself. I'd like to see where the series goes next. If I can't pick it up soon enough, I have COD4, Bioshock 2 and FFXIII to go through. Hey, looks like I might actually need more PS3 games for once, haha. I think those three should keep me good by Christmas but if not, I'll nostalgia some more with the PS1.
I keep meaning to go back to FFXIII - I enjoyed it whilst playing it and then got distracted by all the sidequests so never completed it. I think that's next on my list to play. Unless they release Diablo III any time soon...

I will need to get back to FFXIII. Oh yeah, also add Resident Evil 5 to the list. I forgot I still had that disc.

Good thing that's not necessary. They told me if it continues to misbehave, I can go straight back and they can have a further look. However, I will feel like an ass if I say it might be to do with the motherboard and not dust on the fan all along.
Oh, that's always good. So long as you don't look like too much of an idiot ;)

Now I'm glaring at Firefox.

Oh yeah, another option is to have my bedroom entirely redone but that'll cost a lot of money. Imagine how much I'd need to pay for that and a kickass desktop.

I wonder how many hundreds of pages have passed since I last posted here. i could make a real badass congratulations list.

Anyways, I noticed I passed 30k experience points the other day, I felt it was worthy of a post since I remember thinking of 30k as the maximum back in the good old day. Should I not have some pictures by now? Oh and yes today I levelled up.

I'm surprised to see some familiar faces in here. Bahamut for instance, I'm impressed! Or is impressed not the word I'm looking for?

The only film I've seen that was moderately close to predicting the future is 2001: A Space Odyssey. Okay, we're not quite able to go as far as Jupiter yet and AI wasn't as advanced at the time, but we have a space station, we've been on the moon and I think the space suits, spacecraft equipment and board computers pretty closely resemble what we have now (and had 10 years ago). The film was made in 1968, just before men took their first steps on the moon, so this is a pretty impressive job if you ask me.

I would make a bet that we will still be able to see the first man landing on Mars in our lifetime. Whether we will have those Star Trek like spaceships by then, I doubt it :p

Hey, you still come to the site despite zero activity on the BBS for years now. At least you find some time to collect some B/P. As for catching up on those pages, you realise that's more than what gfox has to do, right? We all make fun of him for being so far behind.

Finding themselves to get one man on Mars is a huge step up.

I probably still have it on VHS somewhere. That's one film my cousin could watch in a few years time. As for the Master Sword reference, only if it's level 51.

I have never actually :(

And I find level 51 resembling the Master Sword much more, so I'll probably make the reference once I get there.

Lol. Yeah he's been the target plenty of times in the Dutch version of that show as well, and not only in Have I Got News For You. I found it hilarious that the Rolling Stone Magazine crowned him "Rockstar of the Year" a couple of years back.

Now that sounds like a film that was ahead of its time. To tell you the truth, I have not watched 2001.

I have to say that the film is quite slow and a bit surreal which doesn't make it an easy watch.

I would make a bet that we will still be able to see the first man landing on Mars in our lifetime. Whether we will have those Star Trek like spaceships by then, I doubt it :p
Finding themselves to get one man on Mars is a huge step up.

"A giant leap for mankind" surely. I heard they might have invented a rocket that will reduce the travel time to a measily 39 days, which is a very doable voyage with modern technology.

It's pronounced a bit like "Olive" just with an "r" at the end. Anyway, most people with the name "Oliver" are just called "Olli" anyways.
Yeah, I think the football commentators just mispronounced it often. Maybe because they thought Olivier sounds more German. They were also pretty inconsistent about Suarez (who now plays at Liverpool). The pronounciation went from SuArez to SUarez and back again and I still don't know what the right one is after watching him for two or three years.

Football commentators suck when it comes to the right pronouncation of names. There's a brazilian guy playing in the Bundesliga with the name "Grafite" (yes, as in "graphite") and he constantly was called "grafitsssshhhhhh", which just sounds silly.
Also I think, Suarez should be pronounced "SUaresh".

That rings a bell.
It should do - these were the first words spoken by Philip J. Fry in Futurama. Space Pilot 3000 was the episode name.
Oh. I don't watch Futurama too often so you where lucky with this one. Also, I'm not too good with english quotes as I watch most movies/series in german.
Sometimes I feel that I should watch things like Futurama in German, it would be funny to hear the different voices, that the dubbing people use.

There you go.
(Not so) interesting fact: That green slimy monster right at the beginning has the same voice as Chief Wiggum, lol.

My favorite ending was where there where policemen grabbing the one talking by the shoulder, and then another policeman grabbed the shoulder of the previous one and so on...
It sounds liek the goons climbing a really tall wall, when 1 puts 2 on his shoulders, 3 climbs on top of them,then 4 does the same. Now 1 climbs up the other three and stands on 4's shoulders and so forth, so they all end up over the wall.
Hm, I don't remember that one. But I still have some episodes to watch!
That's the Goon Show, not Monty Python.

Oh. :(

Yeah, it may be an error with the mainboard, but it could be some other weird things as well. Those kind of errors are very hard to locate.
Heh, I found one problem. Sucks how I can't use Firefox now since I was using that for secondary accounts on Facebook and Newgrounds.

Firefox sucks! :O

Also, I'd rather go for a desktop PC :P
Read my response to Odyssic and you'll understand.

No room is no excuse! :P

Now we have this which neither of us can debate about?
We need to find other things to argue about!
You were talking to Coop about Futurama. Can I join in?

I'm afraid that's a topic I can't say anything about. I don't watch that show!

Damn straight! It doesn't matter what the fanbase is for, those lunatics are always bad. However, some are far beyond pathetic.
Sometimes they can be funny (as in so stupid all you can do is laugh), but most of the time they are annoying. Especially if two fanboys argue about their fanboyism.
I need some examples.

I don't have any at hand right now. :(

I read and even commented on it.

That's the point from where I was completely lost...

Stopped using it last night and I've been fine since. I won't say I'm 100% good for now but I'm happy to find a solution to keep it more stable for the time being.
Come back to Opera. We will treat you well.
Opera can suck a dick as well. I'm going to stick to Chrome and Chrome only.

Ah, Firefox, but by another brand :P

You were talking to Coop about Futurama. Can I join in?
Oh my, yes!
Well, Futurama rocks!

Indeed it does. I was talking to gfox about it yesterday, in fact. The limited synopsis he gave me led me to the episode Brannigan, Begin Again on only my second guess. He said it was one of the episodes with Brannigan and Kiff, so I suggested "War is the H-Word first"

Now I'm glaring at Firefox.
I couldn't glare at myself - I turned up an hour early for the dentist and had to kill the time, to get sorted properly. Oh well, I could have turned up and hour late and missed my appointment.
I've not been to a dentist in eight years now. Uhhh, I think I've told you about my long absence from the dentist before.

In March, I went there for the first time in 7 years - 2 fillings, one extraction and a hygienist visit later, I'm not bad, though I wish she (the hygienist) would be a little more gentle...

It was annoying to see that the piece was "reflected" on the video. Chief Wiggum spoke like that as well? I'll never be able to look at him the same way, you'd have thought that they would have used the same voice as for Kang and Kodos.

My favorite ending was where there where policemen grabbing the one talking by the shoulder, and then another policeman grabbed the shoulder of the previous one and so on...

Yeah, but the Goons inspired Monty Python. It's closer than you think.
