  3. Well Pan off to the flicks to see the new Arnie film.

    He looked rather old in the trailer, maybe he attacks the guys with a Zimmer frame..

  4. Hail, Pan!

    Thoughts on the mmmmeetup :

    I can travel as easily to either location. Would we be flying into Denver?

    Late April time frame looks promising. I’d put order of preference at April 27-28,May 4-5, then April 20-21.

    May 11-12 is Mother’s Day, so that one is definitely out.

  5. The last weekend of April or the weekend look ok to me.

    I need to check whether it’s going to be financially viable to make a trip this year, I’ve had a lot of medical tests over the last year which have turned up nothing but will up the medical insurance for the trip.

  6. First part of April is out because of Gymnastic season for a Denver meetup. Late April maybe, lots of variables could impede my ability to attend.

  7. MMMMMeetup thoughts:

    I, too, can travel just as easily to the Denver area or the Phoenix area.

    I don’t have any other commitments around late April/early May that I know of, so I can come whenever is most convenient for everyone.

  8. Apple tech support update:

    I just spent a full hour on the phone with a succession of people. Here is the current status of the situation:

    -The email address that originally functioned as my Apple ID now does so again. There is a new password associated with it, and it works. I used it to go into the Apple ID management section of Apple’s website and set up my contact and security information correctly.
    -All the music in my iTunes library is still there, including the protected stuff I bought back in 2006. (CP: “Walk the Plank,” Track 6 of the soundtrack of the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie, which is one of said protected items.) I will definitely make backups of all my iTunes purchases in the morning.
    -There is an internal block in place that prevents whoever hijacked my Apple ID from using my credit card number to buy stuff.
    -That block applies to the credit card number I put into iTunes when I first started buying stuff from iTunes. In order to buy more stuff from iTunes in the future, I will have to input my other credit card number. I am okay with this.
    -I have a case number I can reference if I encounter further issues in the future.

    *sigh of relief*

    Good night, mush.

  9. Jack/Bunny, if we do meet in CO, we have lots of the games you guys mentioned. I’d be excited with Jack to play some Catan, we have Munckin, we have Elder Sign, Killer Bunnies. Lots of fun ones!

  10. Also, we can work with any weekend, but some weekends in April will count out Sly B for most activities. The first weekend in May would be ideal for us, but we’re flexible!

  11. You ain’t kidding. Apparently we had a shooting close to our office. Police chopper is circling and patrol cars are in our parking lot at the moment.

  12. Crap joke for the day:

    A boss wondered why one of his most valued employees had not phoned in sick one day.

    Having an urgent problem with one of the main computers,he dialled the employee’s cell phone number and was greeted with a child’s whisper.

    “Is your daddy home?” he asked.
    “Yes,” whispered the small voice.
    “May I talk with him?”
    The child whispered, “No.”

    Surprised and wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, “Is your Mommy there?”
    “Yes,” whispered the small voice.
    “May I talk with her?”
    Again the small voice whispered, “No.”

    Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss asked, “Is anybody else there?”
    “Yes,” whispered the child, “a policeman”

    Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee’s home, the boss asked, “May I speak with the policeman?”
    “No, he’s busy”, whispered the child.
    “Busy doing what?”
    “Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman,” the whisper answered.

    Growing more worried as he heard what sounded like a helicopter through the earpiece on the phone, the boss asked, “What is that noise?”
    “A helicopter.” answered the whispering voice.
    “What is going on there?” demanded the boss, now truly apprehensive.

    Again, whispering, the child answered, “The search team just landed the helicopter.”

    Alarmed, concerned and a little frustrated the boss asked, “What are they searching for?”

    Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle. “ME” ….

  14. Today I used the present I received in the most recent Deadpan Secret Santa gift exchange (an Amazon gift card) to get myself the Kindle edition of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Thanks, Secret Santa! :happy:

    Good night, mush.

  15. Pixie/Van, is Continuum the one about the future cop? If so, we saw the first episode and liked it, but I’ve forgotten to pick up subsequent eps.

        • I had a voucher for a few hundred quid off or I would have stuck with the original iPad.

          I use the iPad for reading ebooks, watching videos and playing games.

          I have no illusions that it is a laptop replacement because in my view it isn’t.

      • My daughter uses her iPad everyday, mostly to talk with her out of state cousin over facetime. My son barely touches his. The only reason I would like one is to run JamUp Pro on it (Guitar Amp Emulator). Otherwise I’d get more use out of a sub $150 Kindle Fire.

  16. I still haven’t gotten on the tablet bandwagon. It’s 50% me being a fuddy duddy and 50% not having the disposable cash to get one.

    My mom recently got a Kindle Fire (not the HD one) and really, really loves it. She watches tons of TV via her amazon prime account, and reads magazines on it. Looks like a fun gadget! But I still like a good book I can read while I’m in the tub without fear of dropping it/ruining it/hating myself for spending so much money on it and killing it.

    • Theres no reason to hop on the bandwagon if you havent already. Just my opinion. Only reason I even have a cheap crappy Touchpad is cause my daughter uses it for school.

    • I have just the Kindle kindle. Like the first one or the ad one … whatevs. I like that no matter the size of the book, I can carry it around in my purse. A friend suggested putting it in a gallon ziplock when I’m in the tub and it worked like a charm. Just thought I’d share. Otherwise, as much as I’d love an actual Android tablet, I don’t have one now and therefore, will continue to not know what I’m missing. That’s the blissful state of never having had one.

  17. as the infinite saga of the Coyotes ownership peddles on, one thing is certain, the new Mayor of Glendale Jerry Weiers, doesn’t really want the team in Glendale.


  18. We are a mixed race gadget family. Android for our phones, Ipods for music. The kids have 1st gen Ipads that I got on clearance when the Ipad 2’s came out. So far, they have served quite well for the limited use they offer – especially gaming.

    My wife is on her 3rd Kindle – now the Paperwhite. She loves reading wherever we go and being able go for a few weeks at a time between charges. I’m sure I don’t want to know how many ebooks she has πŸ™‚

    I picked up a Nexus 7 tablet last year. I like that my Google account info and apps are synced to both my phone and the tablet. I mostly use the table around the house for browsing and looking up actors on IMDB while we watch things. I really like the size and form factor. Fits much better in the hand than the Ipads. Now, if only Amazon would finally offer a video app for it.

    My problems with that survey echo some of yours. It was poorly worded, and most of the questions didn’t have my true answer. Especially the last one! What’s important in life… is clearly:
    The crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women.

  20. Crap joke for the Morning:

    Four guys have been going to the same fishing trip for many years. Two days before the group is to leave, Ron’s wife puts her foot down and tells him he isn’t going.Ron’s mates are very upset that he can’t go, but what can they do. Two days later the three mates get to the camping site only to find Ron sitting there with a tent set up, firewood gathered, and dinner cooking on the fire.
    “Shit Ron, how long you been here? How did you talk your Mrs. into letting you go?””Well, I’ve been here since last night. After dinner at home yesterday evening, I was sitting in my chair and my wife came up behind me and put her hands over my eyes and said, ‘Guess who?’I pulled her in front of me and she was wearing sexy brand new lingerie. She said she had been reading ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ and she had a devilish look in her eyes!!!She took my hand and led me to our bedroom. The room had candles and rose petals all over.On the bed she had handcuffs, and ropes!She told me to tie her up and cuff her to the bed, so I did.And then she said, ‘Do whatever you want.’
    So . . . . here I am!”

  21. On Tuesday I went an got some blood work done. Yesterday my oh so observant hubby finally noticed the bigass bruise on my arm. Now he’s upset, which is funny because I always get giant bruises when I get blood drawn. It’s not like it’s anything new.

    • Saw that. But the Kenneth Farid story you posted balances that out a bit at least. Just in the sense that at least not all sports stars are asscocks. Now if we can only tip the balance…

      • Agree, and the Ravens and 49ers have some excellent guys as well. It’s just the mouthy homophobes that are horrible.

        If anyone wonders why gay teens kill themselves, they don’t need to look much further.

    • Culliver’s comments were ugly, but I’d hoped his insincere forced apology would have enforced some bonehead lessons, and we all could have moved on. Ugh.

  22. (Holy shit, a 2nd post)
    As for the MMMmmmeetup, it’s looking like May 3-5 is the best weekend for most? We can commit to that, if no one objects. . . Speak up, please, if that doesn’t work! I think we’re also getting set on the locale, but we should firm that up too.

    (“firm that up”)

  23. From twitter:

    @garethlpowell: My ambition is to leave a shelf full of books; and then when anyone asks you “what was he like?” you can say, “read the books.”

  24. Your crap joke for a Dull Sunday morning:

    A priest and a pastor are standing by the side of the road holding up a sign that reads, ‘The end is near! Turn around now before it’s too late!’ They hold up the sign to cars passing by. “Leave us alone, you religious nuts!” yells the first driver as he speeds by. From around the curve they hear screeching tires and a big splash. “Do you think,” says the priest to the pastor, “we should just put up a sign that says ‘Bridge Out’ instead?

  25. Hottub and local brew house are calling my name.

    My dogs are barking today. Cant wait to end this work shift. Hope you all are enjoying the super bowl/half time show/ commercials/food/beer/friends

  26. Proof there is no karma #34

    Stab some people to death. Rat your best friends out to get off. Win the Super Bowl for your last game of your career.

    Ray Lewis…Super Bowl hero.

  27. So the cheap case for the new iPad has arrived, and I’ve restored everything from the old iPad, so now using the new iPad.

    Just got to wipe the old one somI can pass it on to my sister.

    • … and while we’re on the topic –

      Could someone clue me in on what activities they are participating in now a days in the Bots Scouts, where the scout’s sexual preferance would be of any importance?

      Are they now offering a “I slept with a girl” badge? Are Jamborees just none stop, weekend orgies?

      Last I heard they were teaching all sorts of things about honor and treating others with respect and maybe even the whole “No sex before marriage” thing. If that’s the case … why in the world would it mater who they wanted to sleep with?

      In fact … what activities are they doing that would even let them KNOW if a kid was gay?

  28. Saw ‘Flight’ today, a bit predictable in places (the woman drug addict was clumsily introduced), but an enjoyable well acted movie.
