I just want to repost this like I'm throwing rocks in a glass house and giggling like a school girl.

My point of that post was to raz Blob, and the fact his internet was only working "50% of the time".  At least Gregg got it.

I skimmed past your post Jingle and thought you were drink :lol

True, true. Both bands really lost something went Turili and Starapoli went seperate ways. Shame though, From Chaos to Eternity is amazing.

At least this one is better than Dark Wings of Steel though.

I agree they lost something when they split, although I still felt Ascending to Infinity was almost as good as Chaos to Eternity, if not as good (both excellent). Rhapsody of Fire is lacking what made them unique from other power metal bands without Luca's distinctive guitar style, so both of their albums since have been generic and unmemorable. Luca Turilli got off to a very promising start, but Prometheus was scifi word salad over average pretentious power metal.
I think both sides needed each other to balance out.

Hi Blob. What's going on down under today?

That's private and none of your business!


I think my internet is working slightly better today. Time to test that with a download.

No giggity downloads at 3pm. That's more of a 3am thing. :neverusethis:

Lol. No privacy  I bet. Time to go to bed.  11:25 pm here.

How much more privacy do I need? I have a room nobody else enters, a computer nobody else is allowed to touch, and my monitor has a huge hood around it that blocks the screen from anyone walking in anyway. :lol
I just like to leave that kind of thing until after 2am, because then it counts towards my off peak downloads. :biggrin:

Goodnight, king!

Well, pretty much this:

Getting ready for church.  I've had a cold lately and I'm losing my voice, which is not good since I play guitar and sing at church.  So I had a cup of hot cider and two shots of whiskey. 

I feel better already.  :biggrin:

I didn't realize it was sportball sportbowl day. I figured that had already passed by now.

I'm currently peeling and deviening shrimp (well, I'm taking a break to check DTF, actually) in preparation for my shrimp tacos. It's going to be fun day, as usual.

I'm working today then SB, morning all

Watching some Star Trek TOS at work, I feel like it's going to be a long day.

jingle.boy

Also, backing up mrs.jingle and jingle.daughter's laptops.  The Mrs is getting an upgrade to El Capitan; daughter's screen hinge/casing (not the screen itself) is cracking, so it's off to a PC repair shop.


Lol-Windows... 3 hours, and it's only 43% backed up.  Mac has backed up 3 times (as I cleaned some old shit up), and downloaded El Capitan upgrade.

Is El Capitan a program? I haven't heard of it.

That reminds me, I still need to finish off backing up my PC to my new external. I've backed up about 1.5TB so far, still got at least a few hundred GB's left. It's taken a LOT more than 3 hours to back up. I have a lot of data.

jingle.boy

El Capitan is the code-name for the latest OSX.

I like that Prog, equal opportunity.

To quote Peter Steele, I'm an equal opportunity destroyer.

For what it's worth, I'd drink the blood of a virgin whether or not I got to hear the CD.

Like it's the first time you proclaimed this.

For some, it's the first.  ;)

Oh, did they finally run out of giant felines? :lol That's a pretty bad name for an OS. I prefer Android's naming convention. Much tastier!

Kotowboy

Well the previous one was called Mavericks and it was a whole bunch o buggy shit. :)

BlobVanDam

Haven't heard of that one either! What kind of bugs did it have?

Scorpion

Currently studying for uni exams.

Fuck differential equations, seriously.

BlobVanDam

Yeah, fuck that shit.
What other subjects you got?

Scorpion

It's not a subject, just the worst part of one, called Mathematical Methods for Theoretical Physics.

The others are Calculus I, Linear Algebra (which I've already written and it was pretty easy) and Physics I (which consists of Mechanics and a small bit of Thermodynamics).

Oh I know, it's just that you mentioned other exams.

You don't have a wildcard subject, like Playing with Puppies I, or Advanced Candy Consumption?

Scorpion

Closest thing to a wildcard subject was Programming, but that's also already over and done with.

I don't envy you Scorpion. DiffEq was a bitch, so was calculus 1, 2 and 3.

The subject I hated the most was Chemistry.

Goodluck!

BlobVanDam

Aw, programming would be my choice of those too. What languages did you learn in that one?
