I have seen we have various threads about computer help, what to buy? various terms, differences between MAC and PC, I made this thread for anyone that wants some of us with computer experience to answer some of those who need some advice or help trouble shooting..
As the calendar feature is gone and apparently not coming back, I thought it would be a reasonable idea to ask everyone to post their birthday here. I will try to update them into a readable format as they come in.

I used to play this on another site I post at...thought it might be fun to start here.

There are a bunch of people who frequent this Forum who's first name I know. There are countless others that I have no idea what their first name is.
Couple that with the hundreds upon hundreds of new people who have registered that would have no idea who people are... I thought it would be a good idea for a Thread where people (who wish to divulge this information) give their first name. This is not to be a joke Thread, please be serious and only respond if you wish to give your name.
Show starts it's second to last season this Sunday with a two hour premiere. I really really really like this show, but at the same time, it's not exactly the most riviting/edge of your seat show on television.
Reading about the season is a little annoying because Matt Weiner seems to be a pretentious control freak. He rubs me the wrong way, but I can't say I wouldn't be the same way if I had created this show either. Still, who cares if we know what year the show starts in? It's not...
With the spring and summer months coming up thought it would be a good time to start this thread.
So far I have three vacations in the works.
In May I'm going to visit a friend in Myrtle Beach, SC for a week.
In June I'm going to spend a long weekend in Cooperstown, NY for the Baseball Hall of Fame
(I may be going back in August as well).
In July I am going to Maine for the 4th.
See closed thread in Around the Majors for explanation.
Where the heck is Paiglee anyway?:P
One for the movies and now one for TV shows :D
Anyone watch "Psych", the new show on USA? I like it quite a bit. It's pretty funny.
Also, anyone watch Hell's Kitchen?
Would like some insight to how folks feel after today. I was appalled by Mike Gallagher(conservative talk show host} who seems to think if more Americans were allowed to carry weapons in public places these these nut-jobs would have a second thought carrying out these acts of violence in public...........I could only imagine a shoot-out in the cinema massacre............
Orange chicken and pork fried rice here.
Fox bringing 24 back for a 12 episode season in spring of 2014.
happened at 6:10 pm, emergency responders on the scene
This was a very interesting article about people who don't generally love dogs versus people who are dog owners. This should be an interesting thread as well. :D

Anyone picked up any good new music lately?
Went on a bit of a tear lately on allofmp3.com and snagged the following:
- Arctic Monkeys- these guys are gonna be hot sh1t this summer, I can already tell after a few listens through the album. they're just regular dudes singing about regular things rather than the whiny woe-is-our-world stuff you're hearing from a lot of their counterparts these days
- DJ Muggs vs GZA "Grandmaster"- the Cypress Hill DJ paired with GZA from the Wu,...
The other one appears to have gone to internet heaven so here is part two.
I saw "In the Valley of Elah" with Tommy Lee Jones, Susan Sarandon and Clarize Theron (sp.?). Very strange ending.
Not sure of all the details right now, but they're reporting that there were two explosions on Boylston Street in Copley Square right near where the finish line is. I'm hearing dozens of people are injured... thoughts and prayers go out to everyone and hoping all my friends over there are safe...
I suppose it's time to start the next volume of this thread!
I just noticed that Superman Earth One vol 2 is out. My next purchase.
Are you watching the Royals? And are you enjoying it?
I think I plan to sleep instead.
There was a time, many years ago when most of us had heros. Many of them were sports personalities. Back then the media was much more friendly to and protective of them. We only heard the good and nothing of their foibles. But by and by the media began to expose our heros for what they were, Human beings with character flaws.
So one by one those we held in highest esteem were brought down to earth. People like Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle and JFK.
Tomorrow is the 88th birthday of one...
Pretty good list for the most part. Only one of the top ten do I disagree with (sorry Amy).
What do you think? They estimate it could save 1000 lives a year. Most of the world already has .05 as the limit. Should the US lower it to .05 as well?
