    It reeks of irony, as I still have a paying account and have yet to play on my own computer since getting back from California (though I am not against going to my ex fiance's house and playing on her current fiance's PC).

    That's kind of a weird situation in itself, actually.

    If the computer starts talking and calling them Dave, it's time to get the hell out.

    You know, I saw that movie the other day, and I couldn't believe how great I found the special effects back in 96.

    Ever forget how long ago something was and then when something like Jux posting that a movie is 12 years old makes you think to yourself “Holy shit I was sitting out side the theater in the sun waiting to get into that movie opening day 12 friggin’ years ago?!?” And now that movie theater isn’t even around any more because they knocked it down so they could put up a Kohl’s?

    That just happened to me right now.

    That is just awesome. I remeber NASA writting about how changing to one platform would make it easier to run and maintain. Where the IT dept. has more than doubled in size. I see the same in every place that tries to go all pc. If they still ran 90% Mac then this problem would have been a lot less.

    I know there's some hacker out there wetting his pants with joy over this, thinking it gives him "l33t" cred or something.
