RE: Attention whore thread
How does anyone have the time and resources to manage a collection of physical media these days? Such opulence.

Oh also Kraftwerk was so awesome

You're probably overthinking this.

I have a meager DVD collection and so many of the discs are unplayable after sitting on a shelf for a few years.

But yes, you're right, I am. Because digital media involves so much less thought in a very liberating way.

GET OUT OF MY NEIGHBORHOOD HIPSTER

I so wanted to see the remix show, but forgot to register. Was the 3D worthwhile or gimicky?

RE: Attention whore thread
The 3D was great. The visuals were very well thought out, and the actual use of 3D wasn't too overwhelming or tacky (except in the essential kraftwerkian sense).

There was almost a disaster as the venue didn't properly distribute glasses to ushers (wtf, doesn't seem that hard) so we missed the 3D effect for "autobahn" and were left with the stereo images overlaid on one another, which was unsatisfactory. Eventually got glasses by the time they played Trans Europe Express. The emphasis was definitely on Autobahn but they pretty much spanned their whole catalog. Twas great.

Really? Even when in the dvd cases that are there for the exact purpose of preserving them? Do you keep them in the sun or oven?

Just got done putting up this indoor herb garden.

It's done in Hickory, with a glass over melamine backing. I only have one bed filled in at the moment, because I'm making bed liners, and I've only finished the first.

Finished the liners for the garden.

Top row is phildendron and spider plant.
Next row is entirely basil.
Next row is chives, oregano, dill, and strawberry.
Next row is rosemary, parsley, cilantro, and marigold.
Bottom row are two African violets.

(Sorry, talking to you is more interesting than going to Apple.com and finding out for myself.)

Nope, no Ethernet, modem, or FireWire on macbook pros anymore.

I had a beach weekend with my new girlfriend. We took walks on the beach, had a canoe ride, biked around a lot, and drove a '64 Mustang up Highway 1. No pics, just memories. Life is good.

Are they out of their fucking minds? Do they not grasp the fact that for many people, their wired home networks are faster and more secure than their WiFi?

How friggin' annoying.

You can do Ethernet with a thunderbolt dongle.

How do they expect you to be able to pay for a Thunderbolt dongle after you just paid Apple prices for a damned laptop?

Thanks a lot, Steve Jobs. You're worse than Obama!

For those of us who don't live in a shipping container and shit in a bucket, another $30 isn't going to kill the deal.

Just be grateful that you can easily pick up a replacement. My Acer uses a proprietary breakout cable for VGA and ethernet, and Id have to order it straight from Acer to get a replacement.

They were shit in the '90s, they're (apparently) still shit.
