    Trace Downing's back

    Hello. I'm so important to the world that everybody remembers me. If you don't, well then you're just wrong! Seriously though. In the market for a new TV, so I thought I'd hit up the best knowledge base I know and say hi.

    Thought I'd drop by.

    I doubt if anyone here remembers me, but eh', I never expected to be famous. How's things? "How's things"...this is going to be a dead thread.:rolleyes

    Clive Cussler's Sahara news....

    Already have. I got an appointment with him on the 6th. He's a property liability specialist. My insurance company also has a legal dept. that gets activated as soon as simple little idle threats are made against me as well. I think I'm safe., although I would like to live in a building that has...

    Condo owners: question of responsibility...

    This is a recent flip. The place used to be apartments up until 2 years ago. The HOA has just hired a new managing company called ACCU, which my lawyer tells me is like the McDonalds of management companies. :rolleyes Our property manager is advising me, and everyone else that I am responsible...

    Economics questions: What caused the GreatDepression? Could we have prevented it?

    One more take is more political than financial, although generally economics is political an that it affects nations, and how they are governed. One theory is that the concept of laissez fare, and other social darwinist theories favoring aristocracy is what causes collapses of empires, such as...

    Condo owners: question of responsibility...

    Ok, here's my story. About 2 months ago a water leak was discovered by the 4 residences underneath me. I live on the 5th floor (top) unit. It was discovered that there was a leak on my shower lead, and tub and overflow drain in the wall. I hired the plumber on the spot and he cleared his...

    Well, I knew this was bound to happen eventually. I buy a widescreen box at Best Buy, get it home, and the P&S version is on the disc. :angry: Needless to say, I haven't been able to watch it yet, until I open up enough boxes at the store to get the real movie.

    'Obese' news reports...

    What gets me is that the 24hr cable nets, always have a report on obesity (I hate the word too), and it's always shown around lunchtime.

    ***Gay-Friendly DVD's, Version 5***

    Mark, my sentiments exactly. Being a Dutch film. One also has to realize that some of the moral/ethical issues we frown upon and criminalize are completely legal, and most Dutch people just shrug it off. Legal age is somewhere around 14 in The Netherlands. I'm not advocating it in the US (I...

    Firefly 10/18/02

    Although I didn't see an episode title in the opening, my TiVo said it was called "Jaynestown". Decent episode, but it's taking me a while to get into this series.

    Lucasfilm's Rick McCallum says DVD hurts box office returns.

    I think what McCallum is talking about is coded in what is known as "Corporate Speak". When a company says that they're losing money (As in an excuse to lay off workers), it means one of two things. One: that their profits aren't as much as they hoped it would be, or Two: they didn't meet...

    Snl Tracey Morgan

    Ok. I'm really not a spelling Nazi, but this name is a little too close to home here. It's TRACY! Not ...ey, just "y". Tracy is the male way to spell the name. All others are female spellings. If there ever is a male named Tracey, Tracie, Traceiy, then their just plain WRONG! :D Oh' and...

    Ever sold everything and left?

    I did the same thing last year...well, sort of. I just moved across town. I had a nice 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo with W/D and garage out in the SE part of Denver (Aurora). I was miserable. I fought traffic every day to work for 30-45 minutes each way. My friends wouldn't come and visit very...
