    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Oh I see Gibonius :embar:

    I believe the American Way, and my policy "fight what you believe in" just like in that 1977 episode of Sanford & Son where Fred Sanford (the late Redd Foxx) wanted to buy a new stereo on time, but the store wouldn't let him buy the stereo because he was over 65 years old because of the company policy at Honest Al's. Soon, he took action and called a group that can't stand age discrimination called The Grey Foxes, they protest, the rest is a long story you dig!.

    There's this character Emma Nelson (who was played by the lovely Miriam McDonald) on Degrassi: The Next Generation she fought for what's right and being a activist like in that episode from 2003 where she urged students to boycott the lunchroom because of generic foods, the rest is also a long story you dig!

    I don't like negative criticism on my YouTube rants, but I'll respect their opinions. I'm glad I've boycotted http://www.radio-info.com for good!

    In conclusion of this reply, Patriots are the Protagonists. End of story.

    Thanks for your reply Gibonius.

    Something has been happening with me for a while now and I don't know how to cure it. I wake up about an hour before my alarm goes off and I get this anxiety in anticipation of hearing it wake me up so much that I can't go back to sleep for that hour.

    If I go to sleep after 2 I become paranoid that I will not wake up on time. So I stay awake the entire night instead. I wish I could wake up to the sound of my alarm.

    Yeah, he could have at least quoted from the original and superior Steptoe and Son.

    My girlfriend went to this doctor to get shots and medication for her trip to Cambodia. For some reason the doctor's office said that she didn't have insurance despite her having the card and everything. She didn't want to press the issue right then and there because she needed to see him so she paid $350 for the visit.

    Well, she calls her insurance company and sure enough her insurance is fine, she filled with them or something and got back a letter saying they paid the doctor for the services. She calls the doctor to tell them and they said they would send her the money back once they receive the insurance payment. This was in April. In May still nothing. She called them, they transfer her over to the billing department she explains, they say they will send out a check. Nothing. She is over there now, and has me trying to call them and get the money. I think they are crooks. I don't know what to do.

    Isn't this like insurance fraud? I mean, they are clearly whether they know it or not, double dipping.

    Does your mom have a lawyer? He will probably write a letter for her for cheap. I doubt her doctor is trying to steal 350 bucks from her. More likely the staff is busy/lazy and her $350 is the last thing on their mind. Make it the first thing.

    dammit, momo has developmental issues like we'd originally feared (Speech and motor). And teh Mrs. just opened an email that told her we're over our data limit on the spare cell that's designated house phone (2Gb) - which we never use and now can't find and suspect our son is keeping at school. That second part is more or less on us, though, because we didn't secure that asset well enough. I think that we haven't yet accepted that D is just going to grab at anything he sees no matter what, but we're getting there. This weekend, we sweep the house for every last little thing and lock it all away.

    Can't I just call and say, I, the boyfriend, am a lawyer and if we don't receive payment I will, um, do bad lawyerly things to them?
