Nope! Doesn't work on a 800x600. I hate having to use 800x600 @ work because I get bitched at for changing it - "I can't see it! It's too small!" lol

Errrrmm...

The funny thing is, that pic is going to look fullscreen for you. For me it is tincy.

P.s. Are you on a 17inch monitor? I am and have a 1280x1024 res.

I have 17" monitors (one here and at work) and 21" (at work), so I can tell you more tomorrow. I use 1024px at home. 800 px is much too large but people with old monitors might not have the luxury of changing to a higher resolution.

My dad's cutting me a pretty good deal. I was in the process of buying his old laptop from him (an awesome HP Lance Armstrong "LiveStrong" edition), and I was owing him 400 dollars more. He says, "You won't owe me anything if you pay for your drum and for gas." Now, my new snare drum is gonna cost me 100 dollars, and I make enough tip money to pay for good gas. So, more money for me :)

There ya go! You definitely got a better deal, although the gas will probably cost more in the long run than the laptop was even worth.

I made this:

P.S. If it doesn't work, it's because i took it down due to high b/w usage.

It's cool but the preloader lags a bit. I dunno if it's your host...If you need some hosting space where you're not worried about bandwidth too much, I'll host it and then send you the link.

That's who I have right now. You don't get all of that bandwidth and space all at once. They build you up each week and you'll eventually get it all. They do start you out pretty well though.

On the cheapest package, how much b/w and space do you get monthly?
Just after you buy it...

I don't remember but I think I get something like 16GB added each week. I'm up to something like 202GB of bandwidth per month (around there), I'll eventually get 2TB, not like I'll ever use that.

I just found the BEST Microsoft skin for windows, works on XP as well as WMC.

If you have ever used the Royale theme, this is a Black/Grey version of that. Very cool, although it was never officially released by Microsoft.

That's a matter of opinion, there are plenty of excellent skins out there.

Tell me about it. I should've originally said "what's with the sudden flood of noobs?" instead.

Well, that beats my school, We spent half a fucking day listening to our teacher basically saying that were fucked for the rest of our lives and that there wont be enough water, that our ozone layer is gone, and that she can't hold her marrage. And after about 3 hours, when she was talking about her marrage, I blurted out who cares....And then went to the principal.

Ok I'm ranting again. AT&T = pure shit! Optimum Online = kick ass but their tech support by email support sucks (I couldn't call from work because their automated system is stupid). I emailed them Friday because there was a problem getting into my email and I get some undefined error because they just launched the new email inbox stuff a couple of months ago and I also pointed the error out. I got some horseshit response this morning as if I had no clue how to access my mailbox. I was like, wtf? This response isn't remotely close!

Eh, whatever!

So then I get to work and our phones are all screwed up, we had some heavy wind and rain on Saturday but our 2nd line worked and our fax/dsl worked. We were having a problem with the first line and getting it to switch over to the 2nd line so that we'd actually get phone calls (it was very quiet today) and we were able to call out. So I called tech support this morning and got their automated system, OMFG! That automated system is worse! It's one of those ones that you feel really stupid about using because you have to talk to it and I had to repeat myself 4 times to tell it one thing. We were sitting there cracking up! AT&T had no record of the report when we called and finally just called 811 this afternoon to talk to a human.

Ugh! It was a pain in the ass (one of my customers emailed to tell me to call him because he couldn't get through!)

Otherwise, the day was kind of nice since it was QUIET :D

Tomorrow's candy day, can't wait! One for them, 3 for me.
