Winning Chess Pschology, Volume 2
by tbrown55 at 24 October, 2008 - 3:17 AM
Wahoo! I got a package in the mail today sent by Wilf Holloway. Inside was a photocopy version of the book Winning Chess Psychology, Volume 2 (sent by the author himself all the way from Germany). Needless to say that I am quite lucky to be in possession of this and also needless to say that I am quite excited. I can't wait to look it over.

Home media software side
by ben at 23 October, 2008 - 2:33 AM
so my next question is along the lines of what to install initially... i am sure i can get my hands on a copy of the new windows home server, but i was thinking i might try out the ubuntu home server instead... if that works. which this guy says it does... so there's that... either way, i'm agreeing with all of you that RAID should be a part of the configuration...

Getting back to the topic of xohm (pics)
by tbrown55 at 22 October, 2008 - 1:19 AM
I live in Bolton Hill now. I saw a little promotional vehicle whilst walking to the Hopkins shuttle that takes me from Penn Station to work researching the effects of cancer drugs on people who have gastro-intestinal and/or pancreatic cancer. I opted not to smoke this morning. See...I'd smoked for like 6 years and then quit for about 5 years and now I am like...WTF..should I or shouldn't I? Bah well...let's get back to the topic of xohm for high speed mobile internet devices. I'm interested. I'm almost excited. I tried it out on their laptops, but not on the nokia device because that had been stolen.

Dark Halo! id comics??
by ben at 20 October, 2008 - 1:25 AM
Hulu has a run of the mill "cop story with a twist" called Life... cop serves time in jail, gets exonerated, goes back to work... anyways, the week's episode is "fallen woman" about a dead woman wearing wings who people thinks is an angel... just funny, because they pause over a comic at one point: dark angel id comics the whole thing is kind of amusing, especially since i'm reading that other story... i haven't been able to find if that is the same cover, but i'm working on it...

CEO assassinations?
by AnarchyX at 18 October, 2008 - 12:58 PM
One sure sign that the people are complacent and we are fucked - Where are the dead CEOs? Why isn't Dick Fuld strung up from a Lamppost with Barney Frank's cock in his mouth? Come on you pussy's Its the only way you will ever free yourselves? Why hasn't anyone found Mayo Shattook and roasted his ass while nailing his balls to a picnic table? You idiots are too busy fighting over which phony populist or faux conservative from the corporate party is going to win to make good use of your 2nd amendment rights and make a real decision! For 2008 vote dead CEO (or realestate agent, mortgage broker, MBA, investment banker, annuity sales men ect.).

Bank robbery in baltimore?
by ben at 18 October, 2008 - 5:01 AM
Baltimore is, apparently, still prone to bank robberies... what's interesting to me is that he got away with it (for a little while), and made $6,000... i was under the impression that it was pretty unlikely you'd even get out of the bank these days. not that i'm thinking about it, mind you... hehe

This is pretty cool, in my opinion. Though one reason we may not have heard about it is because it doesn't have any political aspirations... hehe

How many of you little GenY limp wristers are ready to spill blood for the future of your republic. As in marching on the capital enmasse with anything you can find. Shoot to kill anything wearing a suit or a flag pin.The shit is about to hit the fan with the blatant violation of posse comitatus and redeployment of US troops through Northcom this month. Expect to see them guarding resources like your local grocery store as Paulson declare force majeure sometime between now and early December.

Hunt Down & Impale.
by AnarchyX at 08 October, 2008 - 2:40 PM
With an avid hunting community and 2.5 guns per man woman and child in the US, the strategy should be easy to implement. The scoring scheme could be as follows: Hunt down and execute, with pics of beheading posted to Twitter: assailant gets to pocket 10% of the executive's estate; other 90% goes to the '08 Depression Restoration Fund. Hunt down and impale, with video of the 1-7 day impalement posted to Youtube: assailant gets to pocket 60% of the executive's estate; other 40% goes to the '08 Depression Restoration Fund. Also gets to do the talk show circuit and on cover of Field & Stream. hd&i

Comics stuff
by ben at 07 October, 2008 - 2:42 AM
So, I am kinda sorta in to comics, as many of you know... it started long long ago (for me) when I traded some of my GI Joes for a stack of x-men and other comics when i was in middle school. They weren't in great shape then, and 15-20 years in a bag hasn't made them really collectible, but you know how it goes... they still mean a lot to you.
