Yup, that's why they choose iphones and VW Beetles :roll: Not because they're great, but because they look 'cute'.

I've always thought Porsches look like Beetles (or vice versa), but for men. Not a fan either way.

A traveler was headed down a lonely road when it began to rain. Luckily he happened upon a monastery just off the side of the road. He knocked on the door and was greeted by one of the monks. He asked if he could stay the night, to which the monk replied that their order would gladly shelter him, as long as he stayed out of the tower with no doors. As he settled down for the night he suddenly heard an ungodly noise coming from the tower the monk mentioned, a cross between screaming and the wind on aluminum foil. Then suddenly it stopped and he soon fell asleep. He awoke refreshed and asked one of the monks about the sound, but the monk replied that only monks

of their monastery may know what is in the tower. He thanked the monks for their hospitality and went on his way. About a year later he returned to the monastery and asked about becoming a monk. The head monk replied that if he would aid the monastery in small ways they would consider him. So for the next five years he helped tend the gardens, clean the windows, and learn of the monks' religion. He even once helped them recover a holy relic to be housed in the monastery. Eventually the head monk told the traveler he was ready to become a monk and initiated him. The monks recited a prayer for such an occasion and provided him with a robe of their brotherhood, and the head monk said it was time to see what was in the tower. The head monk led the new initiate down into the catacombs, deeper and deeper until the head monk found and pressed a loose brick. This opened a secret passage leading to a spiral stair. Up, up they went. Their legs grew tired until the head monk opened a trap door leading to a room surrounded with ivy covered trellises. They were inside the tower now. The head monk opened a door leading to another spiral staircase leading to the room at the very top of the tower. The head monk pulled out a key and unlocked the wooden door, pulling it aside to reveal a rusty iron door. The door clattered as the head monk pulled it open, and behind it was a titanium door. The head monk pressed a six digit PIN on a panel on the door and it slid open. The room was at first too dark to see anything. The head monk flipped a switch and a dim light bulb flickered on. Finally the traveler saw with his own eyes the source of that mysterious sound which he had spent all those years laboring to discover. But I can't tell you what it was because you're not a monk.

Is that PdnBench program still around? I did a fair bit of searching and couldn't find any working links for the 3.2 version, and that's the most recent version I know of. I ask because I got a SSD this summer and I want to benchmark the change. :)

Hi, people! Just thought I'd check on you all, see what's changed. Sad that I can barely go six months without talking to you all. :D So, is anything majorly new? Any new mods or rules I should know about? I'm still not likely to be posting that often (and I'm mostly a Photoshop convert now), but I just wanted to say hi.

Very astute of you to remember her. ;) Anyway, apart from a minor incident in which she may or may not have nearly been killed, depending on who you believe (personally, I think she's just being dramatic), she's fine; I'm still hopelessly lime rent over her, although half of me REALLY hates her now for some of the little things she's said and done.

You're still writing on that novel?

Well, I've recycled all the characters from it, made them better and started a new one, so kind of, yeah. :) Actually, this has been really coincidental timing; I started writing it a couple of days ago. I'm doing 50k this month, 50k in November and 50k in January. It will be a compilation of three interlinked stories resulting in a final climatic, uh, climax. Climatic climax? Eh. Anyway, you can click the big banner in my sig if you want to subscribe to my progress blog. :)

welshblue: Indeed; after watching my parents fight for so many years, I'm well accustomed to the concept. :)

Spot the bug. (from 3.5.x source tree)

public static ScaleFactor Max(ScaleFactor lhs, ScaleFactor rhs)
{
   if (lhs > rhs)
   {
       return lhs;
   }
   else
   {
       return lhs;
   }
}

Any recommendations for decent headphones to plug into the computer would be appreciated

I'm a big fan of Sennheiser noise cancelling headphones.

You really need to try them on to see which style feels best for you.
