I need a new portable, high-capacity HD for my laptop media, which will end up totaling about 1 TB.

Discuss and recommend? Please? :(

I at leat need something that can handle being moved a tiny bit in use without something screwing up...

My sister's cat just fell out my sister's window and survived.

My sister lives on the eighth floor. There is no tricky language here. He fell eighty feet.

From this window, to concrete:

No broken bones. As far as the vet can tell, no major damage to internal organs.

The best explanation we can come up with is the tree at the bottom broke his fall.

Amazing. This cat just got a lot more interesting.

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Not until it dies, no. Just until it realizes it's owner is probably not a good person to be hanging around. And leaves.

If you didn't get your own pun, well, there's no point explaining it ;)

:lol: I've just picked up the same book at the library. (A Brief History of Time) I sense another difficult read for me. But I finished the one BoltBait recommended so now I try the one Rick reads. It is very interesting to see what type of books those with more education than I have read. I try to better my knowledge.

His follow up book, The Universe in a Nutshell, is more approachable (it has pictures! :D) and covers most of the same territory. Worth reading both, then re-reading parts that are confusing. For instance, the whole imaginary time thing hasn't quite clicked with me because I don't believe he explained it very well past making an analogy to a standard Euclidian coordinate system. It's like a necessary part of that conversation just isn't included in the book.

Oh, this cat's owner has realized the danger of old, weak screens and eighth story windows. She's using the AC from now on.

Prosilver guy could've used it, too... >>

Heh. I was thinking: what about making a "Point at avatar" BBCode? It could detect whether the user has ProSilver or Subsilver2, justify it accordingly, and automatically prepend a » or « to suit.

Of course, I wouldn't clutter up the BBCode row with it, but it might be an interesting, if rarely used, feature. ;)

Since were talking about books anyway, a short history of nearly everything is also an interesting book.

My favourite book is "Earth:A Visitor's Guide" simply because it has EVERYTHING in...Almost lierally...

My favourite authors though are:

Darren Shan

Robert Muchamore

Stephen King

Anthony Horowitz

Douglas Adams

And a lot more i can't be bothered to type xD

When I went to the check out counter at the library, the young fellow told me to wait, and he brought me back the updated and expanded Edition of A Brief History of Time. It is an illustrated version.

At least this book doesn't have a million pages like the one BoltBait recommended.

I've browsed thru several sections of this book already. It reminds me very much of Popular Science. From what I've read so far, I think I will really enjoy this book.

I just flipped to the section about imaginary numbers and that is going to take some real outside the box brain cells.

LOL! I already ordered the other you mentioned thru interlibrary loan and perhaps between the two of them I might cram some advanced logic into my old noggin.

I just realised I haven't been to the library in ages >__>

Oh my goodness it is a ritual with me. Every Tuesday morning, a visit to the library. The staff all know me and recommend great books, save under the counter any booksale items about drawing that I might be interested in. (don't tell anyone that .... I don't think they should be doing it, but they do. :lol: )

Every time I borrow from the library, I end up owing them $20 bucks or so.
Lol, me too, I always forget the due date, and forget to renew them online. :roll:

Indeed. I dual boot, so I'll be erasing the Win7 Beta to make room.
