1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    On a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon: the use of a lawnmower by your neighbor, followed by their leaf blower coming into action, followed by the high pressure water washer, followed by more lawnmowing, followed by more leafblowing, totaling over 3 hours of witnessed noise, (until you are done with your quiet gardening and decide to head for the state park to escape).

    jesus, who taught you that? [​IMG]

    I once spent a few days in a tour bus with an Aussie band called Spiderbait. I learned a lot of great slang.

    It's bad enough when I have to say, "well I'm gonna have to do this myself."
    What I can do without is the inevitable 2nd and 3rd trip to the hardware store to get the stuff to do it.

    Television. I'm sick of all the sitcoms/dramas/reality shows/pimp my whatevers that seem to be so popular. Actually there are a few shows I'd keep - namely half the shows on Adult Swim, a few shows on Comedy Central, some of the HBO and Showtime programs are decent, and I enjoy the documentaries on National Geographic, PBS, or Discovery as well. Mainstream popular music, aka Top 40. Nickelback, Lindsay Lohan, Kelly Clarkson, Jessica Simpson, 50 Cent, and all those other talentless marketing acts, I'm talking to you. Go out and find something you really like, instead of a song with a catchy beat that is fed to you everywhere you go. Modern Hip-Hop culture. Not real hip-hop culture, but the 'bling bling' lifestyle (in varying degrees) that the media is portraying all blacks as really living. It's the new stereotype and it's just as harmful as any stereotype in the past. The sad thing is that people from all backgrounds and cultures buy into it, when it's really this sick shallow consumerist idea. I F'n HATE the word 'bling'. Last, half the people I see walking around campus...the Abercrombie drones that I suppose represent the core shallowness that is the point of the three above rants.

    I don't mind the Ipod so much though but those people with their earbuds constantly in their ears are tedious.

    An earbud in your third input is much more chic.
    Your faux-Teutonic solidarity is only authentic in its insipidness.

    Did you pick this scathing rebuttal up at your last Magic Card gathering?
    Do you pick up anything at all, maybe except small animals?

    I wasn't about to pick-up the pokemon after you relished in showing us where you hide it.
    I don't even know what that is.
