Bought a 3DS (before anyone accusingly asks why, it's not for the 3D). Put some songs on the SD card. The "instrumental" option (which tries to eliminate the voice of the singer while still letting everything else through) works scary well with some songs.

It's funny, futurama and doctor who have both kinda of the same premise do they not? I tried futurama, I suppose it was not to shabby, and also enjoyed some of the old doctor who, but am afraid my english is not up to catching all the jokes if I watch without subtitles.

I'll try firefly I guess, although science-fiction ain't my favorite genre, but it does show some promise, too bad they cancelled it..

So, I finally got around to buying and assembling a PC. Annoyingly, I bought a PSU with the wrong connections, and the wires didn't reach over the top of the graphics card and across the full length of the motherboard.

Do y'all have any suggestions for a quietish, cheapish 650W+ PSU with a 24 pin connector, at least two six pin connectors, and at least two SATA power cables (plus room for expansion), with longish cables to start with? My Googling skills have failed me miserably.

More like The Wire, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, True Blood, you catch my drift? Anyone?


I recommend The West Wing, Justified, and Frisky Dingo.

Yes.
Some facts:
1. In Israel, prices are roughly doubled, because of customs + stores like to make more profit than they need.
2. After the price drop was announced, Israel stores dropped the price immediately. Not sure why. They're not very bright.
3. Right now, a 3DS here costs around ~$250 - and it's not going down any time soon.
4. Anyone who buys the Nintendo 3DS and uses the eShop before August 11 gets 20 free classic Virtual Console games, some of which I've always wanted to play but never got the chance.
5. (unrelated) The day after I bought mine, I found out that another store sells it for $56 less, which actually ends up slightly less than $250.

Old price | Price I bought it for | Other store's cheaper price | Difference

Edit: Crap, now that link looks like an ad.

I see


It's the gone with the blastwave guy making fun of himself. Why do you need someone to acknowledge it?

Pro-tip: Don't fall into a love triangle.

Especially when it's between long-term friends.
Especially if she still has feelings for you, but is better off with the other guy anyway.
Especially if she's a promiscuous mostly-lesbian who's going to marry a gay man.
Especially if it's an area you're fairly neurotic in anyway.
Espcially if both of you can get stuck in the past easily.
Especially if you do cause a rift, with no intention to, someone has seriously threatened you.


Just helpful advice to avoid that sort of situation in general. Can be a bit taxing on the nerves.
