    What is great about message boards...

    Remember when the internet was new and NOT everyone was on it? Those were great times. In the current climate of meta-feeds and anon boards, a good old fashioned traditional message board takes you back to those simpler times when it was a limited engagement. As it is trending, its reminding...

    SCART cables for RGB output of your oldschool consoles

    I have this SNES SCART cable shipping just in time for Christmas: http://www.retrogamingcables.co.uk/nintendo.html This is a reputable company. I've ordered SCART cables from them before for Sega Genesis and Saturn. I can't say they are of the highest possible quality due to the lack of...

    following http://www.instructables.com/id/Fix-the-Red-Ring-of-Deathwithout-towels/ I was able to fix a broken 360 I got for 10 bucks. 5 bucks worth of nuts and bolts and a couple hours of elbow grease and it has been a total success!

    Tea Party

    Tea Partiers, as seen in protests or town hall meetings, look like the socially relevant equivalent of a Wal Mart Greeter. There's so much backwoods out lash going on. Its amazing. I'll sum up: Guns niggers taxes pipe bombs jesus.

    Avatarded

    I just read a thousand of these youtube comments for the Avatar trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRdxXPV9GNQ&fmt=22&annotation_id=annotation_23834&feature=iv This movie was sad, but beautiful. I really liked it and I think I have never experienced something that emotional from a movie...

    Google Chrome

    Anyone using it? I am trying it out: It runs a lot faster on my machine than firefox. (Probably not an issue for people with state of the art PCs). I like how concise the menu bar is. Less cluttered than IE/Firefox - more viewable web area. I like the way tabs are implemented. Rather than...

    Console: 2D -> 3D

    Diplomacy: Big Willy Style

    Bill Clinton's unofficial/official diplomacy on behalf of these women - well, I think he's a real champ. I am wondering how this would have played out under the Bush administration? Anyway, happy stuff. BTW, I really enjoy Laura Ling's documentaries for Current TV (Although she may find it...

    Did the Cold War actually end?

    Along a similar spin on 'major combat operations ending' in Iraq 5 years ago - did the Cold War with Russia even end? The recent events between Georgia and Russia have placed the U.S. in a precarious position and, for common opinion, escalated Russia to the #1 concern for the U.S. now...
