    running in-wall speaker cable to two wall plates?

    I have a section of my basement all nice and studded, destined to be a home theater. Before we put in the drywall, of course, I want to run the cables; speaker, cat 5, and so on. Now, the trick is, in the short term, I'm going to want my receiver in one spot, and later on, when I get a...

    NationStates: fun little online game

    http://www.nationstates.net Doesn't take much effort, or time. Interesting though. And feel free to join the Serene Disparate Union region, if you decide to sign up. I need more clout, to introduce a UN resolution that MAR be banned. :-)

    Fireworks at this time of year? In Canada?

    Folks, I'm looking for some fireworks, but I'll be darned if I can find any. I know I'm a month or two early for them to be generally available, but we're having a family get together this weekend, and the kids just love them. I'm in Muskoka, but can make it to Barrie or possibly even...

    XP says network cable is unplugged, but it isn't

    Boston Public premiere

    Surprised not to see a thread about this one yet...wow. I've always thought that BP was basically a bet that Kelley had with somebody about how he could screw everybody over worse than the previous week, and he's set a new high for himself. Good plot lines, some realistic conflicts between...

    Who else is waiting for Master of Orion 3?

    Just under a month...can't wait! MOO3 with Alan Emerich! I'm getting pretty antsy! Stupid Zellers had an ad for it last week, I got all excited, then I checked on line; not out till November 27th or so. Damn those three-month-in-advance flyers!

    According to the all new Amazon.ca, Kung Pow is scheduled to hit DVD on July 23rd...can anybody more in the know confirm or deny? I really wanted to see this in theatres, but on opening weekend, I had an ear infection, and by Monday, well, it was gone. :-)

    Well, the people of Mississauga have spoken, and they want WIDESCREEN! The giant cardboard standies had HUGE GAPING HOLES where the widescreen FLEW OFF THE SELVES and there were tons and tons P&S left. Every person I saw who wandered in was checking DVD after DVD looking for widescreen...

    Enterprise epiphany

    I'm watching the classic Trek episode, Dagger of the Mind, on Space. It's the first episode where Spock gets his Mind Meld on. Anywho, he explains that it's very dangerous, because he needs to physically alter blood flow, pressure, nerve connections, and the like. He takes care to caution...

    Boston Public 5/6/2002

    Hmm. We had a gay student at a catholic school sue over the right to bring his boyfriend to the prom. (why the hell have I been confusing 'quote' and 'spoiler' these days? But who cares, I don't think BP is rebroadcast at any point) Jeri Ryan's blue shirt with the white patterns: DAMN...

    ebay rules - incorrect item title?

    So I'm selling some stuff on ebay, and today I notice that somebody used the 'buy it now' option on one of me auctions. Then I noticed that I fucked up; I'm auctioning off a bunch of stuff, and used the 'sell similar item' function to create this auction after another one. Long story short...

    I think we need a HTF recognition signal

    You know, every time I'm at the local Future Shop, or better yet, DVD Wave, I find myself wondering "Gee, I wonder if any of the people here perusing DVDs are on the HTF." But I don't want to ask, because, well, it sounds like I'm trying to sell drugs. "Hey, man, you look like a fellow who...

    Klingon Academy manual PDF?

    Having played through, and returned, Bridge Commander as being all graphics, no meat (and just plain silly; a cap ship cannot fire it's phasers indepandently?) I read online that Klingon Academy is much nicer. Tried the demo, seemed nice enough. Might be enough to make me get the Microsoft...

    I've a 99 Chevy Cavalier, with the factory default radio/CD Player. It's got an 'aux' function button, so I'm wondering if it's actually got audio inputs (be it 1/8th inch 'headphone' style jack, or l/r RCA style) to plug me MP3 player in. Anybody have any idea? And if so, suggestions on the...
