  1. O ya, that Tool kicks , my favs are Vicarious and Jambi...although the whole CD is great. Can't help you with the PJ, Chili problem...I don't like the Chili's much, and haven't listened to much of the new PJ (even though I own it); if you even remotely like Tool though I'd recommend 10,000 days....it is a very deep album.
  2. Watching that beast go at 118 is funny, but that is using a macro -> I got 8 on my own
  3. Those $100 sound alot better than my sister's computer
  4. At least I'm number 3 on the :filtered: list
  5. If you could tell us a bit more about the airflow in your system, that should help a bit. 1. Do you have any case fans/how many/what size/where are they located? 2. Is your processor heatsink/fan stock, or an after market configuration? 3. Have you cleaned you case (compressed air), ever/recently? 4. Any weird sound coming from fans? 5. Does this happen with anything other than Joint Operations? This info should give us a bit better insight into your situation, you might be ok adding a case fan and blowing out your case using compressed air...but that depends on what you have already. If you do decide to use compressed air then please do not let any of the fans spin; you can ruin them if you allow them to freely spin around.
  6. Joe, I'm sorry to hear about your loss. Knowing what kind of person you are, I am certain that Toni was an awesome person. My thoughts are with you and your family. Take care Joe, may better days lie ahead for you.
  7. Why did we get stuck with the worse half of Bruce for so long? We missed the better half. Welcome back Sue.
  8. I have to go with: Zakk Wylde (Ozzy, Black Label Society) Dave Mustaine (Metallica, Megadeth)
  9. I use 2500mah batteries in my cordless mouse, they last a really long time. They are Energizer's if that means anything to you.
  10. I'll start with some basics for you, the top string is E, the second string is A, third from the top D and the fourth G. If you don't already know, the long piece of the bass is the fretboard; it has about 20 metal bars running vertically, those are called frets. A tab is read by using the string and the fret; example; E -----2--3--4 ^You will be playing this on the top string, and you will be playing fret 2 then 3 then 4 E ---2---3---5 A -----2------ ^In this case you will play fret 2 on string E, then fret 2 on A, then fret 3 on E, then fret 5 on E If you see a zero, sometimes denoted by a O or o, that means open and you don't need to push anything on the fretboard, you just play the string. E ---0------------0 A -----0--------0 D -------0----0 G ----------0-- ^Tabs like this may look like alot all at once, but start at your top string; and play each string individually; when you hit the bottom string begin working up again until you reach the top string again. It isn't that bad if you take something like this one string at a time. I hope that helps for now, let me know if you want anymore direction or ideas; I'd be happy to help.
  11. Wow that is unbelievable Chris, Sorry to hear about Mr. Quam. A picture says a thousand words, looking at that montage he really looked like a genuine, likeable person. My thoughts go out to his family and those close to him, I know how difficult it is to lose someone close, but I couldn't even imagine losing my father at such a young age. Very sad news, especially in what should be a happy time of year. Take care, and offer the family condolenses from me.
  12. Come live in Canada, were "sweet" but like the ":filtered: cousins you see at thanksgiving". Just one more person to add to my hit list Tucker (rhymes with a fitting word) Carlson. Oh well, don't let the :filtered:s get you down. I live in one of the safest most beautiful countries in the world, if I'm :filtered: at least I have a nice place to run around
  13. Here is a decent question, from my experience; it really tests whether the person is giving you what you want to hear, or what they really believe. You walk up to a pop machine, fully expecting to buy a pop; you realize there is already a pop dispensed; it is unopened and the flavor you were going to buy. So you look around to see if there might be anyone that might have left the pop there by accident, you don't see anyone. So you take the pop; would you leave the money you were intially going to spend on the pop in the machine incase the person returns for their drink? Now in a real life situation, very few people would leave the money for the next person...most people would smile at their good fortune and walk away drinking their free pop. I know I certainly would. The person in the interview is essentially promoting themself for you, they may see this as an opportunity to tell you what you "want to hear". I've used this scenario several times, some people are generally sincere when they say they would leave the money; but those people are often easy to spot.
  14. How am I supposed to follow up a post like that, I tend to agree, I do not beleive that America is facist; or at least to any extent even similar to what was demonstrated by this flash video. They obviously share some similar traits, because most countries do...but some of the points were pretty weak. It is evident as a result of the election that the majority of America's voting population is more right winged, than left. If the USA is facist, then I suppose because Canada has a Liberal government we must be communist
  15. Had the pleasure of seeing System of a Down, tonight; put on a hell of a show. Here's a review of the shows I've seen; hopefully Audioslave and Seether will put on an impressive show in a few weeks. 1. Metallica - These guys are the masters at what they do, you may not like them as a band, or you may not like their music; but they sure put on a great show. Godsmack did an amazing job opening for them. They set the bar very high for future bands 2. Foo Fighters - Awesome band, I love their new cd; and they sounded great for the entire show; it's going to be tought for anyone to catch up to my Metallica experience, but the Foo Fighters did a great job. Poor choice of openers in Sloan, did not suit the crowd at all; but still performed quite well considering. 3. System of a Down - Great sound, great show; only problem I had with them was some of their song selection...I like their music, but am not SOAD freak; I was bound to not recognize all the songs, but there were a few to many I didn't recognize for my liking. Still, a great show; I'd definately have enjoyed it more if I'd had heard some more of their stuff before the concert. Openers, Mars Volta...eek, they suck. 4. Pearl Jam - Sounded pretty good, and a decent show; missing a few key songs from their playlist though, that was dissappointing; still a good show, just not as flashy as the other bands ahead of them. 5. Megadeth - Overshadowed by some great bands, ranked 5 more because of the great shows the other bands put on. I thought Megadeth was great, but it was a poor choice of venue; I think that hurt their sound...they had a small stage setup, and not overly flashy; I'd like to see them play a sold out arena next time. 6. Godsmack - Once again, ranked lower more because of the calibre of the bands before them; and really nothing they did/didn't do themselves. A great sound, a decent show; a poor choice of openers (Mushroom Head ), and a :filtered:ed up audience made it an interesting concert. 7. Velvet Revolver - Sound much better on cd, Scott Weiland is a freak; WTH was I thinking? I think that's it so far, I've been fortunate with some great shows thus far, which made it difficult to choose a rank for each. I have a concert on October first, Audioslave with openers Seether...should be a great 1,2 punch; we'll see
