  1. Just go with the flow... and leave if you don't like it... nobody is forcing people to stay... nor are they forcing them to join... ^THIS^ Edit: This thread is bound to get locked and/or deleted sooner or later...
  2. This thing is what I need right now... something powerful and small to put in my dorm room so that I don't have to make the 4+ hours daily trip just to make use of a more powerful computer...
  3. The only thing I smoke now is diesel and petrol engine exhaust gas (blame the city)... Today's find: A very nicely done Civic... The owner did a nice job matching the chromies with the blue paint... it also got twin exhaust tips... Edit: I also didn't know that there was a TRD Wigo (spotted on the road)... http://www.gadgetsmagazine.com.ph/mobility/testdrives-mobility/test-drive-toyota-wigo-1-0-trd-at.html
  4. Now where did I put my pitchfork and torch... We all saw this coming after the attack...
  5. I meant the thing that the headphones are plugged into... phones are easier to steal unnoticed compared to headphones... and expensive-looking headphones usually means that the person is carrying a mid-high end phone... PCHub... Gilmore then? (imo, most gaming peripheral companies would benefit partnering with DataBlitz...) Not planning on getting anything new yet aside from a new HDD and a Q1900M for a planned low-power rig... but I might grab a Sennheiser HD201 or a Philips SHP-1900 if I have an extra 1k PhP from Christmas...
  6. @LorelynF Excellent overview... Is this a sponsored vid? what's the predicted price when it hits? and which shops will it appear in? (DataBlitz pls...) also, how long before we see a cdr-king knockoff? also, I'm not one to wear over-the-ear headphones while outside because of security reasons...
  7. Today's Manila inbound was not that horrible... Left home at 6:30 and arrived at destination by 8:45 over an approximately 45km long trip... Most traffic jams and slowdowns were caused by poorly timed traffic lights and idiots on the road (i.e. slow drivers, assholes, etc.)... I'm not sure how the outbound traffic would be later this evening... I might opt to take back roads to cut the travel time by 10-30 mins... Also is mixing 91 Octane fuel with 95 Octane fuel ok?
  8. I'll be off to tackle the hell of Manila traffic later again for some errands... Pray for my left leg...
  9. I haven't completed anything yet... but I have a vague semi-subconscious understanding of things... This app helps: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.Obenkyo Also try duolingo and see if there are any cheap/free formal classes near your area... then there's exposure... Personally I consume lots of Japanese media, mostly in translated/semi-translated form, that somewhat helps... or if you know someone who can speak and read Japanese, it might be better to learn from him/her... there are also lots of free JLPT review material on the web so that's one place to start...
  10. Personally, I'm thinking of lowering the rear of the lynx by a bit and replacing the suspension with something harder to keep it from getting so low when its loaded to capacity (4 people in the back seat + luggage in the trunk)...
  11. Wasn't something like this made by a kid a few months back? I vaguely recall something posted on this site about it... also, I do not want something that enables an EMP to make my gun unusable... I'd rather keep the gun's firing pin off or keep it in a childproof quick-access box... (I currently do not own a gun but am planning to get a .22 pistol for sport shooting/home defense)
  12. We had NCAE (National Career Assessment Examination) in my time... not sure how it compares to SAT but it's a standard test over all the subjects in the standard curriculum to determine one's potential in a field... They don't release the exact score, instead they release the score range that the student is in... I got 99+ on all subjects with the career assessment putting me in all fields besides creative fields (i.e. fine arts)... The test was weird... In my high school, the average was 97... then again, the high school that I attended had a really high quality of instruction and an advanced curriculum... Edit: Prep was through mandatory instruction from our school's teachers... I formerly studied engineering but I am now in information science...
  13. I call that series LesBears... and it reminds me of the time I introduced a cute kouhai friend to Sakura Kiss...
  14. Sisig + beer = bliss...

  15. Update: It's been 3 hours now and still stuck on 18 of 134... I think it's safe to force reboot since it's too abnormal at this point... any thoughts?
  16. f*ck... I can almost see the Paris incident as the death of privacy (or, at the very least, its illusion) on the internet...
  17. Might be... I don't have the authority to remove anything since this is government property... I'm itching to get the Lenovo bloatware that came preinstalled... It's running Avast primarily (preinstalled? I didn't put it there...) with a Lenovo preinstalled version of McAfee...
  18. A little background: The machine is a government-issued Lenovo G40 with an i3 so I cannot afford to break it too much... Updates got triggered earlier this afternoon and now windows is supposedly installing it... but it's stuck at 18 of 134... I understand the risks of shutting it down right now, but I need this machine rebooted and workable before 10pm JST... anything I could do to at least see if it's actually doing any work?
  19. Not wool gloves... Build in the nude for best results... Just wear what's comfortable and minimize any movements that cause rubbing...
  20. Meiji Black... can't afford anything better yet...
  21. I'm assuming that he has an M.D. and a driver's license therefore what he says is a valid fact... /s
