Man Pleads Guilty To Selling Fake Chips To US Navy

xpuppykickerx Can someone please explain the crossover here? (327 comments)

The chips were then sold to Naval Sea Systems Command, the Washington, D.C., group responsible for maintaining the US Navy's ships and systems, as well as an unnamed vacuum-cleaner manufacturer in the Midwest.

Has our Navy gone from suck to blow?

Time On Social Networks Almost Doubles In a Year

xpuppykickerx Re:Thank you iPhone app. (87 comments)

Yeah yeah. I finally gave in. I found it a useful "tool" to follow bands and smaller record labels on their current releases and news.

Time On Social Networks Almost Doubles In a Year

xpuppykickerx Thank you iPhone app. (87 comments)

I didn't really spend a lot of time on Facebook until I purchased an iPhone. Now with the app for that and Twitter, I find myself spending more time on these sites than normally due to accessibility. Kinda common sense comes into play here.

xpuppykickerx Darklands? (159 comments)

No Darklands either. This game consumed a lot of nights during high school. Super customizable characters and gameplay for that time. I'm trying to find a copy that I can run on DosBox or something similar. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darklands_(video_game)

Strange Glitches In Games

xpuppykickerx Re:Star Wars the Phantom Menace (282 comments)

This game upset me so much. When you're trying to get Anakin to join your group and you get attacked, he says "I wont help a murderer". So annoying.

17 Million People Stopped Buying CDs In 2008

xpuppykickerx Re:That's a shame (375 comments)

T-shirts, posters, and other non-media merch has a better profit margin for bands. Shirts normally cost 3-6 bucks to make and they can easily sell them for 10-15 dollars. CDs and records have normally only a 1-2 dollar mark up. When you're on tour, taking shirts are a lighter load when space is tight. I'm not saying don't bring/sell cds, but shirts will normally outsell CDs when you're touring.

17 Million People Stopped Buying CDs In 2008

xpuppykickerx Records and Tapes (375 comments)

I know this only applies to about 1% (if that) of the market, but I have mainly purchased records in the past 2 years. Discographies have been the only CD I have bought, which normally contain out of print materials. I have noticed even some of the bigger retailers, like Best Buy, starting to carry LPs again. The great thing about LPs is that they normally come with a digital download coupon.

How do you get to work?

So what you're saying is you can't hear a Harley unless you're driving behind it?

How do you get to work?

xpuppykickerx Re:Motorcycle (887 comments)

I agree with a lot of your post, but not all Harley riders make their bikes louder to be jerks. The louder you bike, the more chance you will be heard and seen, reducing the chance of an accident.

the plane could fly solely using two African swallows with a string around the plane, such as they would if they were carrying coconuts.
