Old topic, been done to death and I'm sure we're all sick of it. However, now that all three major "next-generation" consoles have been launched (in the United States, at least), which are most attractive to you and why?

It's not a repeat topic, really.

What's most important to you in a console?

Computer problems [26 Jun 2006|12:33pm]

[ mood | aggravated ]

I should have posted this yesterday but it didn't start until after I had already posted. My mouse isn't really working. I have to swing the entire thingto get the cursor close to the point where I need it. IT doesn't even always work when I do that...I tried cleaning the ball that makes it move but it didn't help. I checked the plug-in to the port and it was fine. Any other suggestions? It's getting annoying to use tab. If anyone knows how to use your keyboard to move the cursor that would be helpful too!

holy crap, a post in GRU! [25 Jun 2006|10:29pm]

[ mood | contemplative ]

Alright, so yes I am being weird and putting a post in GRU after a year of almost no posts!

Anyone who watches adultswim might be interested to know, PeeWee's Playhouse reruns are going on it. I believe they start July 12th or something. Weird, right? I don't know if this will be a good or bad thing. From the commercials, it looks pretty immature and I think, for a television lineup made for people over 13, at least, and even more so over 16, this will make it seem silly and childish. I can see that they are trying to bring back a show from the older people's of that age groups childhoods. I just don't know if it such a good idea. Most of the shows in the lineup were amde for teenagers specifically and PeeWee's Playhouse was made for young children. Would something like that really fly? Was the show any good? Why might they be inclined to add it to their lineup? Discuss in comments.

(Sorry about some bad grammar.)

Yay! Another rant on Gothic Lolitas in America (and even some in Japan) [04 Nov 2005|11:16am]

kaori_yuuki
Gothic Lolitas suck. Period. I'm sorry, but when a bunch of Wapanese hypocritical trendwhores get hold of a trend, it usually goes DOWN THE SHITTER FAST. First, they were cosplayers, now they bash cosplay, and say that "What we do is a serious fashion!"

Guess what bitches? This is America. It's not sold that much here. How the hell can it become a very serious fashion when you're having an awfully hard time being taken seriously?

They have little respect for anyone else's choice in fashion, yet whine like little mofos when people insult them. I'm sorry, but let's remember something - none of you fucks live in Japan.

These fuckers do not know what they want to be. Do you want people to respect your trend, try respecting other people's decisions first. Stop whining about how no one understands you, because, chances are, you guys aren't trying to respect anyone.

Look at this community. Prime example of a wasteland of shit. These chicks are catty, whiny, emo and bitchy. OMG, liek this doesn't have enough lace! *dies*

Might I also add that when someone actually tries to add their own touches, they bitch like little children. OMG, LiEk lets STAY TRUE to teh Jahpanese trend.

Again, you guys don't live in Japan. So take this hint - Shut. The. FUCK. Up. If these girls actually lived in Japan, they wouldn't last five minutes without getting made fun of.

Let's not forget that they bitch and complain about Ko-Gals, saying that they have attitudes, but here is a problem - Western Lolis have worse attitudes than any of them.

So what is the point of this rant? Ladies, wake the fuck up. You only get what you give. If you don't respect anyone else, they sure as shit won't take you seriously. Broads like you all make loli look bad. Get a fucking hobby, or better yet, get a fucking life. Stop depending on your parent's check so that you can get that new Moitie Dress. Mana is more the woman than most of you are, and he's not even a woman.

GET OVER YOURSELVES.

If I remember, a lot of the members like Final Fantasy.

I think this deviantART deviation devised by one of my insane friends is truly excellent.

Does anyone here play FFXI? I got it for my birthday on Thursday and I adore it. Of course, I wasn't fond about the whole update thing...but now I can play the game, I love it.

Just wondering if there were any other Vana'Diel-ophiles out there.

Hey! [27 Jun 2005|11:23am]

Hi.
It's me. You remember me-
No?

Well let me describe myself; I'm neither thin nor fat. I'm not short or tall. I'm not pale or tanned, and my hair is not light or dark.

But I swear I can be interesting sometimes anyway.

And I think what this wet-winged community needs is a topic. So, selfishly, I'm gonna ask about what I'm interested in.
Tell me about your fantasies.

No, not those! (Perv.)

I'm interested in what sort of daydreams and wondering people do during the day.
-Do you only daydream about real-ish things? Like being Tibetan or being a game designer.
-Do you have a fantasy world all your own? Real-ish or fantastic, do you live secret lives in you head?
-If you have a daydream life, is it influenced by books or tv? Are you buffy the vampire slayer and a CSI investigator?
-Do you find yourself thinking about an altered world? Maybe electricity stops working, or Hawaiians conquered the world.

What do you think about when you're not thinking about anything?

finally reintroducing myself...alright I didn't have the ambition to do this earlier so here goes. Yep that's right it's me duck-monkey...i believe i had the same name in the forums! w00t?

But now a semi-important question, has the forum died completely or is it still to be posted on? This has kept me wondering for a few days, oh well, answer when you have time! Thankee-sai(s).

I think pretty much everyone on the boards/lj knows me. I've been around since the ProBoards days and have been a mod and now owner of the boards since DD.com went down.

Not much else to say, =P.

"Save" is an objective word there, I'd say. I really need to start checking in on the forum more often - I feel so out of the loop. C'est Kelsey, or junkie, by the way. That's it.

Old, retarded lady present. Yes, I think I found a few more strands of gray this morning but not so desperate that I'm sitting in the salon for hours to color my hair. I need to go to the Comatorium. I am Coma. I finally figured out how to post here but not to my journal. hee hee. I think I need to go nighty night.

Nice to see some of you not seen on formal forum in awhile.

Thanks for making this Live Community Lauren!

I'm Mary, a seventeen year old female geek of the genus sciencus. I love science and mathematics, and I also love music and playing my guitar. I was previously a member of the Geeks 'R' Us forum until I finally lost my password and never signed in again (yeah, that's what happened to me: I actually lost it quite frequently and it got to the point where G.R.U. was so slow anyway that I never bothered getting a new one, but it's still in my favourites!). I also used to be an amateur webdesigner, like a lot of other members, until I lost interest; I still make the occasional layout or icon but I'm not as into it as I used to be.

I think that's it.
