I checked the plug, I checked my circuit breaker, I ran all sorts of tests while the world's most patient customer support person waited for what seemed like hours. But still nothing. Perplexed and desperate, I took out my screw driver and started to unscrew one of the tower's side panels. And, as soon as I removed the two bottom screws, a huge pile of POPEYE'S CHICKEN NUGGETS spilled out. It was amazing. The computer still didn't work, because apparently a worker at Foxcon replaced the circuit boards with his lunch by mistake. But I DIDN'T CARE. IT WAS POPEYES. My day was made.

This is quite possibly the best bcd post ever and best thing I've read in months, I had no idea what was coming and am literally LOLing in my chair right now ahahahahahaaaa oh man still dying.

Thanks bruh.

Point being Mac's hardware lasts a while, but unless you sink money into the new operating systems you only get a couple years out of the software.

You could have upgraded to 10.6 for like 20 bucks and been fine.

I was streaming Netflix on my late 2006 MacBook this year. Just retired it a few months ago because it didn't support OS X 10.8. But half a decade of support is more than I ever expected. Couldn't believe how much use I got out of it. I owned a recent MacBook Pro at the same time, and for basic tasks the super old MacBook was just as tolerable.

what the fuck are you even talking about? i know silverlight is a plugin. it's a plugin developed by MICROSOFT. MICROSOFT declined to support older versions of OS X. it's microsoft's fault (and netflix's for using fucking silverlight in the first place). please stop writing words about things you don't understand.

(also my girlfriend is using my macbook from 2008 with few complaints other than – surprise – a machine from 2008 is not as fast as one from 2013. it's ridiculous for you to expect your machine to accept software upgrades indefinitely.)

What is their incentive for doing this?

It cost them less money to stop supporting a legacy OS that no longer generates very little if any revenue.

Microsoft has stopped developing Silverlight entirely, too.

This. Seriously. I have to think about what runs what, and how people's use of the internet changes with hardware trends, etc... all the live long day. Can we talk about fashion again?

Random fashion thought. I was going to order a super dark blue cafe racer. But because of this thing called a (self-imposed) budget, I need to wait until next month to get it. Actually feel pretty good, that discipline.

So at the moment I'm beginning to develop an interest about ways to invest money, both long term and short term. For the former, I plan to open up a Roth IRA (or another IRA maybe?) sometime this month. Most people I've asked about retirement stuff have suggested IRAs. But for short term investments, I'm not sure what to do. I'm told that purchasing a CD would only make sense in a world where inflation weren't like 4% a year (or so I'm told), so it seems that's not a particularly worthwhile option. What would you guys recommend to a complete financial noobie who is looking to put aside money each month for the next 12-14 months in the hopes of seeing that turn into something *better* two or three years later?

Guidi's (992 & 996)and ToJ (2zip Moto) are some of my favorite pieces that I own. Shell Cordovan Indys also became much more comfortable to wear once I made a humongous scar that cannot be mended when I fell on icy street and stopped caring for them. With those above I can wear and not worry about caring for them, and they are always clean without looking 'lux'. I do not feel the same about other articles I wear though. Even though I know that by being comfortable with them I can enjoy my clothes more, I am scared to death to see a hole on a knit or a trouser, or hot sauce on a button down. I just cannot imagine throwing away a clothing that I liked so much because I couldn't protect it. I guess I am still the boy who bawled his eyes out when the neighbor's cat had passed away (yes. She wasn't even mine).

Your job have 401k plan? Depends on what they offer but can't really go wrong with Roth IRA. And for short term put into S&P ETF instead of CD

fuck, two more items added to the (wishful) fw 2013 kop list:

lanvin bomber jacket in grey:


raised seams on this are pretty great.

stock photos: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)






brunello cucinelli wool/cashmere hooded vest:


can't find any pics of this one online.

sadly, the cucinelli is more than I can imagine spending on a vest ($2550) and I've got no reason to really by the lanvin bomber, aside from it being a quality piece and fitting well. might snatch it if I find it on sale though (priced at $1400 currently).

i can't believe you guys talked about popeyes for 3 pages and no one mentioned bojangles which blows it out of the water, albeit a fairly regional solution

new laptop - macbook air, sony vaio, or lenovo.

rft: new suede boots - apply suede protectant spray or not?
