Off-Topic / People of German speaking culture, hear my call!
« on: 25-09-2012, 01:09:21 »
I'm currently working towards minoring/double majoring with a degree in German. As such, I have to write a short paper about culture in German speaking countries, heres where you wonderful, wonderful people come in!

The assignment is to gather information from somewhere about the culture on a particular subject.

So you get to choose which you'd like to enlighten me on.

1. Beer - Who makes the best beer? What laws govern beer-making and selling?


2. Religion in the education system, is it there, do people frown upon it? etc.

If you'd like to ask about another subject, I have a whole page of them, I just picked the two most interesting.  ;D

If you do reply to this, please add the area & country you are from and include your first name. If you don't want to include your first name, I will be fine giving you a fake name 0:

Hey guys, my birthday is coming up and the parental units are ordering me to draw up a list of things I'd like for my birthday. I figured I'd might as well upgrade my gfx card as well, anybody mind helping me find one?

System specs are:
(copy pasta from xfire)

AMD Phenom(tm) 9650 Quad-Core Processor (4 CPUs), ~2.3GHz
3072MB RAM (I plan on getting another gig as well)
Hard Drive:   
488 GB
Video Card:   
NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT

To add to all of this, I've got a 400W power supply

Internet cookies for all that help

Edit; as per Toris and Ciu's reccomendations, I (and Flyboy) will be building a new computer. Any suggestions from you guys would be great!

Off-Topic / Someone uploaded some of their music?
« on: 24-06-2011, 06:06:11 »
Hey guys, anybody remember who started a thread with a link to a song they recorded as a possible map theme?

I remember the thread as a few folks talking about map themes (loading music), and someone recorded a custom one on the sax or trumpet I think.

Does anybody still have the music file from the link that was posted? I seem to have lost the copy I had.

If it helps, I remember it sounding sorta SPR-ish

Off-Topic / Fathers day
« on: 19-06-2011, 16:06:32 »
I don't think fathers day is celebrated in Europe, but Happy Father's day all.

Bought my dad a new watch, woke up at the crack of dawn, cooked brakfast and delivered.

Now if I'm lucky, I'll be able to go back to sleep  ;D

Off-Topic / Help :| Hi not die!
« on: 07-02-2011, 03:02:12 »
So, on saturday, I got a fever. The temperature stood in the 99.5 - 100.7 range. (Fahrenheit, of course)  
Today, I have had a temperature range of 100.9 - 103.3. (106 being the expen sive box zone) Any suggestions to get the fever down? I'll be missing school tommorow to go to the local healthcare place to get checked out so in the long term, it shouldn't be too bad. I've already tried eating blueberries and drinking green tea for the anti-oxidants along with 2 pills of tylenol uber strength.

Sick, need ways to lower a fever temperature.  :)

Edit: Lmao, 3000th post  ::)
