  1. linux for dummies

    i've just made the switch on a pair of my old boxes to linux ubuntu (latest) but i have one little problem i know absolutly nothing about linux or using command line. is anyone willing to do a bear basics starter tutorial type thing so i can start ti learn the basics? or if anyone knows where this has been done before... (i think ninja should be on option for the optional post icon too)
  2. I find the wierdes stuff on the net

    best solo ever by the best band ever http://www.spikedhumor.com/articles/150250...From-Pulse.html
  3. Where is everyone????

    i think he would be sweet to work for. it would be nice to work for someone who spends the $ to get it done right the first time rather then cut corners to save a buck i'm working on a line for a job this summer where i'll be operating big equipment (track-hoes and dozers)
  4. Black And Brimstone

    i've just started thinking up about what i would like to do with my old project car. it's been sitting without love fore 5 years now but hopfully i'll be able to find some monie to get something done, or atleast my garage finished so i have some place to store it closer to home... :S but for now i want to just compile the parts and stuff together. so consider this a very slow work log.. and feedback is always good!
  5. Black And Brimstone

    so i have a garage built now, i haven't put the siding on yet, thats going to happen this summer. only problem now is the garage have been filled with clutter from life and there is still no room to park the project in it.. humbug. I've been able to shift a fer engines that i had in storage to here so i may possible be able to find time and monies to get a low budget engine and trans running for now. hopefully once i get it into a few shows with the basics i can get a few sponsors to kick in some cash for high end stuff. at least thats the plan for now

  7. Crysis

    ya i had the demo and it was addicting! i have the full vers too but i can't install it until I'm finished with exams. even with my new rig i can only play this on high settings at 720p (as opposed to ultra high) and man is it good still
  8. Where is everyone????

    yo! man it's been a long time since I've stopped by this shanty. between school, projects, house repairs, kidlet time, and the 30 seconds or so of sleep I'm getting a day it's hard to make time for web-stuffs. I'm just about finished with finals for this round and I'm looking at a summer job which won't have me working 18hours a day (hopefully) maybe this summer I'll be able to sit round a tell a few horror stories about construction in Alberta.. drop me a line here i would like to hear how the peeps have been doin! chao

  21. coolviva

    ok i think CM is giving me the shaft, I've sent them several e-mails since they last responded and no one is saying (the S-word) to me. in my opinion cooler master crapped the bed on this one. if i can manage to find time this weekend (new job has been running my ass into the ground) I'll shrink the photos and add a section about their crap-tastic service and we can post the review Monday
  22. COD Folding@Home
