    Big Dig Open!

    Well, half of it anyway... After almost 20 years of construction, the underground northbound lanes of the I-93 Central Artery (which runs right through downtown Boston) are open to the public. Officially called the "Liberty Tunnel," the total distance of the tunnel is a little over 2 miles in...

    New File Eradication Tool

    Hi All, Today I decided to write a tool which totally eliminates the contents of files from one's hard drive (ie, for sensitive data removal, etc...) There are tools out there that do this (ie, Blackboard File Wipe) but I find those tools to be buggy at best, not to mention that they are...

    "The Shield" Season 2 -- General Discussion for ALL Episodes

    I'm kinda surprised that a "The Shield" S2 Premiere thread hasn't popped up yet. Perhaps this show isn't as popular as I thought it was? Last night's episode was fantastic, as is to be expected from this show. Mackey's character development has come a long way from the Series premiere. One...

    Gangsta Rap...

    My 2 favorite genres of music are: HeavyDeath metal, and gangsta rap. There doesn't seem to be too many people posting about gangsta rap anymore. So I thought I'd start one up. I always tell my wife that in order to be classified as "gangsta rap," certain criteria have to be met (possibly...

    Movies that contain cameos by you, your house, etc...

    Basically this is a thread to discuss appearances that you, or your friends, property, etc... might have had in a movie. So, if you fall under this category, feel free to mention it. I'll start off with the movie "Southie." Anyone seen this? I finally got around to watching this movie...

    My new system (finally)...

    Well, I decided to toss the ole AMD K62 450 MHz out the door (actually not... Im going to use it as my LinuxSolaris x86 box). Here's what I ended up with (I built the system): Pentium 4 1.8 GHz (512k L2, 400 MHz FSB) Asus P4S533 Motherboard (Ultra 133- WOOHOO!) 512 MB PC2700 DDR (CL 2.5)...

    Do gay spouses wear wedding bands?

    First off, this is in no way meant to be a religious or political question or topic, so don't even go there. My wife and I were at the mall this past weekend and we stopped in a jewelry store to inquire about getting our wedding bands engraved. While we were there, we observed two seperate...

    airdisaster.com

    Maybe it's just morbid fascination, but for some reason I have become addicted to this site. Has anyone else ever checked it out? Lot's of information... I didn't realize how many airline accidents there actually are each year. Anyway, I think Ive gone through every airline accident in the...

    The X-Files: Name that Quote

    Simply name the episode associated with each X-Files quote. Feel free to add your own quotes as well. Sheriff: "I know he and his friends listened to devil music." Mulder: "The Night Chicago Died?" Mulder: That's Daryl Musashi! Scully: Have you ever heard of Munchausen by Proxy...

    The X-Files: Mythology Episode List

    I put together this list for a friend of mine at work who wanted to know what episodes pertained to the ongoing mythology of the show. She's really only interested in the mythology, not the stand alone shows. So I put one together for her. I figured that I would post it here as well, in case...

    Beheaded

    Has anyone round here heard "Beheaded" yet? They're a death metal band from Malta. They're actually really cool. I've been listening to them for about a month. They sort of remind me of an early Obituary and Entombed.

    Trillian - WOW!

    I downloaded and installed Trillian at work today. WOW! What a fantastic app! In case you aren't familiar with what it is, basically it works as a one-in-all client for the following: ICQ, AOL IM, Yahoo Messenger, MSN Messenger, and IRC chat. Instead of running all of these combined (or any...

    WTB: LD Player

    I'm looking for an LD player. I currently have a Pioneer CLD-3080; however the unit is displaying horrible crosstalk and it's time to get a new one. The player must have auto-flip capabilities, and also must have digital out. Preferably, AC3 RF out would be great, but it's not crucial. I'm...

    Who uses Dragon NaturallySpeaking?

    Just curious is anyone on the forum is using or uses Dragon NaturallySpeaking... my company makes the software, and I just wanted to get an idea of how popular it is on the forum.

    "Whats offensive to you"

    OK well it looks like I've been locked out of the thread. Understandable, I guess, but it would have been nice to receive an explanation for clarity sake. I was under the impression that the posting was all done in good taste without name-calling and such that is prevalent in so many other...

    Software I'm writing...

    Maybe this should be in the Computer Section but it'll get more traffic here. I figured that some of my fellow HTFers might get a use out of this. Here's what the application is: a program that allows the user to control each and every Window that is open on your system. You might not know...

    Hasta la Vista, Davie...

    So, Bob Davie is now out of a job... Of course you cant pin all of Notre Dame's football problems on him, but I've never thought much of his coaching. It'll be interesting to see who replaces him, and whether or not he gets another college job. So, chime in with your thoughts :)

    Programmers: what are you using?

    Just wanted to see what other programmers out there are using (hardware, but mainly software). My setup at work: PIII 600 w 256 MB RAM We're running Microsoft Visual Studio, but we have a few guys who swear by Borland C-Builder (and even one guy who is using CodeWarrior :laugh: ) Pretty much...

    Your Thanksgiving traffic report...

    How was traffic for everyone who travelled this Thanksgiving? I'll start it off... my fiance and I travelled to NYCNJ. It's roughly 230 miles, give or take. We debated about which route to take. Ultimately, we decided on I-90 (Mass Pike) to I-84 to I-87 (Garden State Pkwy). We left on Wednesday...

    Best shooters of all time

    By shooters, I am not referring to first-person, Doom style games, but rather platform shooters (such as Gradius). These are a dying breed now, but back in the 16-bit heyday, they were all the rage. My favorite shooters of all time (in order) 1. Gaiares (Genesis) 2. Axelay (SNES) 3. Lords of...

    The Ex-CEO of my company was one of the Pioneers of DVD!

    I actually stumbled across this the other day. Its the story of our ex-CEO, Gaston Bastiens. He now sits in a Belgian prison after being extradicted from the USA to Belgium on numerous charges (do a search for his name and you'll see): financial fraud, insider dealing, stock market...

    A case of the locksies...

    Wow... I just got through looking in After Hours (which IMHO is the best room on the HTF!) 6 locked threads in the past 2 days... I even saw something that I thought I would never see... a moderator who locked a thread that he started :) Hope it's not getting out of control. For what its...

    What happened to the NesterDC thread?

    Does anyone know if, and why, the NesterDC thread got pulled from the gaming section? Unless I missed something, I don't recall any discussions about pirating. Thanks

    The Charlie-Daniels dress up page!

    Another classic from one of my friends at work. You may remember a few months back, I posted a link to a site where a friend of mine posted his version of "alternate art" for DVD covers. Well, today at work we were making fun of Charlie Daniels for random reasons. He decided to create... well...

    Any other PC Engine fans out there?

    Even though it failed in the US (thanks to poor marketing by NEC), I consider the PC Engine (Turbo Grafx 16) to be one of the greatest systems of all time. Hard to believe that this system came out only a year and a half after the NES in Japan! The Japanese games were simply amazing for the time...
