    VideoRedo on Mac Pro

    Finally took the plunge after waiting for a Blu-ray enabled 8-core monster... I'm just going with the Dual 2.66 and will upgrade later this fall if inclined with the money I would have wasted on the 8 core upgrade. Any input on VideoRedo Plus running in Parallels vs BootCamp in Xp vs Vista...

    Passport waiting game continues

    If you need a passport next year, you might as well apply now. :frowning: They quoted 4-6 weeks when I applied. Somewhere along the way it went to 6 to 8 and now 10 weeks. Mine still isn't fully "processed" and my "10 weeks" is due before priority mail can deliver it. They've apparently also...

    *** Official FEVER PITCH Discussion Thread

    Saw the preview yesterday with full slate of Fox TV and Movie trailers. I really wish someone other than Jimmy Fallon played the lead because this could have been so much better than it was. This film was made for Affleck. :D (or Damon) The script was perfect and hit way too close to home...

    PrimeTime: Amazing Grace: A Story of Terror, Survival and Heartbreak 

    This show is so far over the top, I'm amazed they didn't run this one out during sweeps. (or maybe they already did?) I can't believe Petra agreed to do this. It's as if they're running the Princess Diana story with Prince Charles dying instead, as if it's a bonus. "Without clothes, her...

    *** Official HAROLD AND KUMAR GO TO WHITE CASTLE Discussion Thread

    Went to see this tonight and was more than entertained. The gag where they starting singing to Wilson Phillips' "Hold On" had me about ready to cry. Finally, they're moving onto ripping the crappy music of my generation. ;)

    Breast Milk compound kills warts, possibly more...&qu

    Apparently Breast Milk contains a HPV killing compound. Hopefully it can be used to kill all subtypes cheaply and effectively at the least. Link Oh well, that epsilon character didn't work in the title.

    Snickers with Almond

    Ok, apparently I missed the bulletin, but what is the point of these? I went to Sam's club the other day and after going by the candy aisle I thought, "I haven't had a Mars bar in ages, I'll pick up a case." Much to my surprise there weren't any. I did see "Snickers with Almond" and almost...

    What's the DiskWarrior equivalent for Windows??

    I'm really getting sick of data being trashed simply because I don't have a good tool for minor/mod corruption. With Diskwarrior, Disk First Aid, and/or Tech Tool I can pretty much bring back any HFS/HFS+ formatted drive no matter what the problem is. (There is no OS on these drives, I just want...

    50ft too long for composite, SVid, DVI, and/or Component

    I finally purchased my first projector, Sanyo Z2. Within the next 1 to 1.5 yrs, I do plan to move so cable lengths need to give me some flexibility. As such, I would like to spend a little extra to get the cables long enough for no matter what future location they may be in. How far is too...

    http://www.powerball.com/powerball/wintiers.asp There were exactly 40 people that missed by the Powerball (40) of winning a share of $250+ Million. Apparently they will get $100K, but that's nothing compared to what might have been. :D In other news, I won -$10.

    Best option(s) for internet access while on vacation with Powerbook G4

    Photo Paper suggestions for Epson Printers?
