This Hallowe'en ...

Overfiend1976 Oh well. (709 comments)

Yeah, at 33 I may be a bit old for all this nonsense, but alas, I have a very boisterous 5 year old. Anywhom, she's going as Tinkerbell, my g/f is going as Wendy and I'll be sporting the look of Cap'n Hook.

Back-to-school time means ...

Overfiend1976 *cringe* (447 comments)

I got to send my first off to school this morning. I'm pretty sure I was far more emotionally wrought than she was :P Hold on! Daddy's gotta take a Klonapin before we leave... Now I just need to figure out where exactly the previous 5 years went....

Pirate Bay Retrial Denied, Judge Declared Unbiased

Overfiend1976 Re:New Definition of Human Rights (331 comments)

Actually, it is kinda Kafka-esque in a way because we've got such volatility in the net-neutrality stage right now with our new American President. Things are teetering on a very fine edge and these next few years could determine many of the laws that will affect all of us in some way or another.

ASUS Designs Monster Dual-GTX285 4GB Graphics Card

Overfiend1976 Re:Hmmmmm.... (212 comments)

I was generalizing how a LOT of people won't want it for a similar reason. It was to be construed as an implication. I didn't realize I needed to state it out loud.

Crap! I guess I forgot to read the directions on /. that only fanboi's are allowed to post on things. Sorry about that, my apologies.

Overfiend1976 Re:Also Golden Sun DS (291 comments)

Wait...if that's the case, will we get to watch Mario progressively get less fat as you beat the game?? What's next? Yoshi's Diet, Low-Fat, Trans-Fat Free, Unsalted Rice Cakes?

ASUS Designs Monster Dual-GTX285 4GB Graphics Card

Overfiend1976 Re:Hmmmmm.... (212 comments)

Thus why I said: "I'd rather just stay with a more affordable card." I know some people will be all over it like white on rice, but I'm happy with what I have.

ASUS Designs Monster Dual-GTX285 4GB Graphics Card

Overfiend1976 Hmmmmm.... (212 comments)

I'm sorry, but I see the point of purchasing something like this as sensible as spending $12,000 out of pocket for the Adobe True Type font package. It's great and all that you can make things run at a barely perceptible higher speed, but at the cost of not only the card itself, but cooling, PSU, etc., I'd rather just stay with a more affordable card.

45-Year-Old Modem Used To Surf the Web

Overfiend1976 My house :P (622 comments)

Was built in 1785 :P I know that's pretty low tech, but it's impressive considering how well this place has stood the test of time (in upstate New York with its endless blizzards), and now we've got modern half million to million dollar homes that are made with plywood and pressure treated boards and have problems from day one. Just more examples of how newer is so very often NOT better. http://www.oldversion.com/ For the win.

World's First Battery Fueled By Air

Overfiend1976 Re:Wake me in 2014 (205 comments)

Seems like every new thing is going to be commercially available in 5 years. Why can't we have the future now? Do I have to move to Japan?

No, you had to move to Japan 5 years ago :P

Mininova Starts Filtering Torrents

Overfiend1976 Re:Big Yawn (267 comments)

Let's face it, a torrent site without any "illegal" (under dutch law, downloading music & movies is LEGAL!) content is about as useful as a 3-legged, dead dog. With a nasty case of fleas.

Yeah, let's hear it for defeating the purpose.
