      No, that is far more sinister than that.

      Is it Manbearpig?  I bet it's Manbearpig.  Totally gonna go with Manbearpig.

  4. "I was just casually browsing page 158 of the Buy, Sell, & Trade forum (like everyone does!) and just HAPPENED to scroll past 17 posts from 2008 and was wondering if you still had this for sale?"

      Ironically, it was just sold to me about an hour earlier than you inquired :)

      Always ask for a deal. After all, it hasn't sold in over 13 years. Clearly no one wants it!

  7. "VCS EXCLUSIVE! ....it's also on Steam." Did I somehow miss the word "exclusive" changing in the dictionary?

      It's short for "console exclusive". I think MS came up with that a few years ago.

      Despite having grown to dislike the platform in the late 80's. So was I. It was part of the many inflection points in the evolution of computers. Both as an example of what and what not to do.

      Could be wrong, but...I figure he means Are you getting an Amico?

      Nah, it's actually more just a statement in general. I'm as guilty of it as everyone else. Directed more toward myself than any other person.

      I've been making more of an effort lately to not fall into the same trap.  Doesn't mean that it doesn't happen (it does), though I have been catching myself earlier than I might have previously.

  10. $1500 to rebuild the suspension on my Camry....

     

    But mechanic says everything else is perfect mechanically, not bad for 232k miles!

      Agreed! I also take an environmental position regarding cars. I think people treat cars like disposables when the materials used to build a new car offsets the minor gain in fuel efficiency, and since this Camry is still getting 26-28mpg, it's better for the planet to keep it running as long as possible and get a new car only when I NEED one, rather than when I WANT one.

      I remember rushing to the store in that Camry, to get Cathi stuff for her wound and we bought a shitload of beer in the process.  LOL

      Hahaha we got like 60 Tecate and the damn store didn't have cartons of smokes so we bought like 10 packs......

  11. $313 power bill has me missing the Pacific NW. LOL

      Damn! I don't know what I would do with bills that high. My electric last month was $93. We have nuclear power though, that's probably why.

      @Cebus Capucinis Even in Minnesota our summer AC bill is more than our winter heating bill, LOL. I'm guessing you don't often get 90's in the summer in the Pacific NW. I am curious why Tucson and Phoenix didn't end up closer to the Gulf of California. Something to do with Gold Rush travel path of least resistance I would think.

  12. 2 hours sleep a night for....10 nights now? Work-related anxiety attacks suck.

      FWIW,  I did that exact thing once,...Then got to my days off and slept 14 hours!

      Been there, done that, totally sympathise with how many goats that blows.  If the job is at the point where it's screwing with your sleep, it may be time to start looking.

       

      FWIW, I'm currently working on a 6pm-10am Mon.-Weds. schedule.  Thursdays don't exist for me at all, and Fri.-Sun. are days where I sleep in a series of 3- to 4-hour fits.  Trust me...  I get it, even without the job stress.

      Melatonin really helps a lot, I usually take 10mg at bedtime.

      I'm with @x=usr(1536) tho, if it's general job stress it's time to consider something different-if it's a particular big task that has to be accomplished tho, that's just the ups and downs of a career, I guess.

      Hope you get some sleep!

  14. Ah, I see, TODAY was the one day a week scheduled for me to screw up everything all morning at work. Missed the memo until the sixth email sent with mistakes. D'OH

  15. Ah, Nuprin. Little. Yellow. Different.

      You guys should work less. You will probably get more done as well. And live longer.
