Don't kick me off or I'll rage Tongue
avatar
Forum maintenance to be rescheduled at a later date.

If they make just one major mistake (I know they will), that kernel is instantly forked. As long as the kernel lives on, that's all that matters. Besides, I'm too scared to try BSD-anything. Tongue
avatar
What the actual fuck? Linux adopted a fucking code of conflict? I hate this world. Suicide

Laugh

Back to purging band spammers. Good times!
avatar
Holy shit correa actually went 2-4 I can't believe it
avatar
Yay Correa got moved down in the lineup again
avatar
lol
avatar
im late as hell i think but this is the first time i see this function..
avatar
Correa still sucks though
avatar
Cool, the diamond backs are getting theri ass kicked today
avatar
Alright, the 404 error has been corrected!
avatar
.....And we lost
avatar
Welp it looks like we're losing to the Diamondbacks today.
avatar
Wow Keuchel is shitting the bed already thanks a lot

Terror Squad is amazing

The endless basis pile up on you.

Butchering the US anthem on 9/11 of all days is probably not the best idea. Laugh
avatar
Kill me. This anthem singer at the Blue Jays game is beyond horrible. She murdered both the Canada and U.S. anthems.
avatar
Madness reigns...in the hall...of the Mountain King!
avatar
Patiently waiting for those CDs to arrive
avatar
Time to talk about the bands from the YouTube channel. Headbanger
avatar
Damn the umpires costing us a run

Fucking umpball, he was safe!

5 - 5 TIE GAME WOOO
avatar
Down 5-1.....
avatar
SUNDAY FUNDAY!
avatar
WOOHOO 2/3 against the red sox. Going for the sweep tomorrow
avatar
4 - 1 lead Tongue
avatar
...or pre-Wat Hagar Concerto Moon!
avatar
Just listen to Galneryus instead
avatar
6 - 3 Big Grin
avatar
Eunough.
avatar
Third one is the best. Probably because they got their shit together by then. The first album has some really obnoxious "singing".
avatar
3 - 2 LEAD
avatar
WOOHOO 2-1
avatar
Well their early ones are alright imo
avatar
I keep going back and forth with Ark Storm...on whether or not I should ever keep listening to them again. Tongue
avatar
We're getting our asses kicked by the Red Sox right now
avatar
Petition to raid every radio station possible and play Doom.
avatar
Doom is amazing and everyone should listen to them.
avatar
I think it's a one-off show, still, it's better than nothing. I agree, if they enjoy themselves and it goes over well, a full US Galneryus tour would be magnificent.
avatar
I should've seen Galneryus when they were in Mexico City. Zzzzz. Atlanta is the next best thing. Hopefully they do a US tour.
avatar
Oh and technically, they've played in Mexico before which counts as North America
avatar
You should get your ass over there too. Tongue
avatar
Galneryus is playing in North America for the first time next year. Have fun!
avatar
Tragic.
avatar
The only other option around here is ATT lol
avatar
Are there any other ISPs that you could switch to, or is it all just Comcast? I hate it when these companies try to monopolize areas by eating up smaller ones.
avatar
Comcast tech is supposed to come out today. Hopefully they'll find the problem.
avatar
sad to hear you have internet troubles.Sad
avatar
At least I have internet at work
avatar
We're back on, as of 12:30 AM PT on September 4, 2018.
avatar
I will be taking the forums down in less than two hours from now for necessary maintenance. Come back a little later!
avatar
Tragic.
avatar
God, I've had no internet for the past 12+ hours. Currently I'm phone posting.
avatar
Watching my rare Concerto Moon VHS scores. Based on image and audio quality, the previous owner probably wasn't a fan. Wink
avatar
Fucking internet randomly went out again for a while
avatar
Oh thank jesus, my tracking updated. I can stop being paranoid now.
avatar
My tracking still hasn't updated. I'm getting paranoid now.
avatar
My tracking still hasn't updated from yesterday morning.....
avatar
My Buyee package arrived. Huzzah!
avatar
Hold your horses, Your package will come when it comes.
avatar
Decided to get FJ to ship 8 items they have for me.
avatar
Damn it, no package today!
avatar
Its a sad day when I consider a DR6 to be really good.
avatar
Darn it, the tracking still hasn't updated from this morning
avatar
Once I get my PR, I'm DONE with this stupid English conversation shit, gonna get me a real job.
avatar
I am pissed. Work is making me hand out flyers on street corners... without regard for the fact that I am as white as casper the ghost and will turn beat fucking red after 10 minutes out in that shit... In the middle of this fucking heatwave that wont go away.
avatar
I ordered two replacement fans. The other laptop might need one, too.
avatar
Toronto gets their ass kicked by Baltimore again.
avatar
Phew, White managed to get the walk off home run in the bottom of the 9th to win it. Nice.
avatar
Laptops suck when it comes to upgrades, but fuck it, I'm going to replace a few components to see if my main one runs smoother. Cooling fan got ordered up.
avatar
Fuck, oakland got a one run lead and it's the bottom of the ninth
avatar
Toronto lost to Baltimore 12-5. Suicide
avatar
3 - 3; bottom of the 8th
avatar
Time to open up my laptop...AGAIN! Angry
avatar
Finally got Kuroageha's Sad Song tape! So stoked, thank you Mercari!
avatar
Traffic sucks
avatar
Time to upgrade my CPU!
avatar
Let's not blow this series against Oakland
avatar
Wow, the smoke is all gone now.
avatar
Melissa, can you hear me? Melissa, are you there?
avatar
I'm quite liking Damian Hamada at the moment. I should listen to this some more.
avatar
That piss-poor excuse for rain actually did take the smoke down to almost bearable levels.
avatar
One of the releases in my last order was a dud of remarkable proportions, more info to come. Tongue
avatar
Someone tell the Angel's pitchers to stop hitting our batters. It's not our fault you're a crappy team. Tongue
avatar
October is shaping up to be a busy month, and that's when there'll probably be a postal strike.
