The un-observant on ramp mergers are bad too... the ones that seem unable to adjust their speed for a smooth merge. Or worse are the cell phone on ramp mergers, who probably would have the skill to adjust their speed properly, if only they weren't paying more attention to their phone. » 4/08/14 3:44pm 4/08/14 3:44pm

DANG! Back around the early 2000's this was exactly the digital camcorder I was Jonesing for. I believe Sanyo made the original one, but the off-brand ones were always the only ones within my budget. I never ended up getting one, but looks like that was just my good fortune. » 4/08/14 12:52pm 4/08/14 12:52pm

We paid $2500 to have our cabinets lacquered in white. They were light tan color before. There is a lot of labor involved, but the result was fantastic. The sanding and lacquering quality was top notch since they were professionals. So, if you've got plenty of time but not much money, the DIY route is for you. If you… » 3/28/14 11:17am 3/28/14 11:17am

I first got online in 1994/5 through a friend's PPP dailup account. By 1997/8 we were using dual dial-up that they were calling "shotgun" which basically used two phone lines and 2 modems to DOUBLE your dial-up speed. By 1999 we had T1 ethernet in the Jester dorms at UTexas. I was an LPB. Those were the days. Hook 'em! » 3/24/14 12:56pm 3/24/14 12:56pm

I used to never shut down my computer. It's a habit left over from the 90's when 1) I never wanted to miss a single ICQ or AIM instant message and 2) Windows took forever and a day to boot up and 3) when using the standby button your computer only woke up from its coma one out of every 2 times. » 3/21/14 5:05pm 3/21/14 5:05pm

My friends were burglarized, and the thieves actually used their pillowcases as sacks to stash the stuff they were stealing. At first my friends didn't understand why their pillows were uncased, sitting on the floor of their bedroom and the investigators explained the reason to them. Insightful. » 2/28/14 4:36pm 2/28/14 4:36pm

This reminds me of the other day when I was at Bob's Big Boy and came across this sugar packet that somehow got messed up in the factory and didn't get filled with sugar. I took it home with me because, I know, I just know it's going to make me RICH RICH RICH some day. Here it is for you all to admire. Remember; you… » 2/28/14 7:07pm 2/28/14 7:07pm
