  1. Went to the Honolulu Aquarium. The first one is an Emperor Angel Fish and Yellow Tang the second I think is a Wrasse but I don't know for sure.
  2. Not like the enemy is going to miss hearing that coming. Maybe they should make it look like a mosquito with glowing red eyes, it will scare the enemy in to running.
  3. http://www.snipercentral.com/rifles.htm They don't have it up yet but should have it soon. Check it out though as it has a lot of rifles list as well as info. Edit: check these other sites also. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M110_Semi-Aut...c_Sniper_System http://world.guns.ru/sniper/sn13-e.htm
  4. Wow, thats nice, and from a free program.

  6. I wish I could find the time/money and eyesight to get back in to competitive shooting. I spent 6 years on the range and only stopped when my eyesight went bad. I just couldn't get used to wearing glasses and got frustrated when it affected my scores.
  7. Save your brass and learn to load your own ammo. You can use quality bullets/primers and powder in that brass and you will save money and improve your scores.
  8. Thanks, I think I will try that. THe antennas on the WRT300N ar fairly small in height so I think I might be stuck trying to use the original sizing instead of the larger one.
  9. Interesting, The only thing I seen that I might want to use is The router I currently use you are not even able to replace the antenna with higher gain type like my old WRT54 was. That alone might help with the signal issues I have with these concrete walls around here.
  10. But thats what I am asking, what will this do that the other does not? What is this benefit of Open Source? I'm asking because I really don't know and would like to know.
  11. Just In, after a brief firefight, three Somali Pirates were killed and 1 captured. Capt Phillips is safely aboard the US Navy ship. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/30178013/?GT1=43001
  12. Have to ask, just what using this open firmware will do for you?

  14. You said in your first post you wanted to go Wired not wireless so why did you choose two wireless routers? Yes you can hard wire to them as well but if your not going to do wireless why buy a wireless router? If you have decided to go wireless why limit yourself to the old b/g standard? I have been using a Linksys WRT300N for well over a year now and while the range did not live up to the hype and is about equal to the G standard the throughput (speed) is outstanding and is in your price range plus it has 4 ports on it to hardwire in to. The WRT54G I used to have only got speeds of 40 to 50 MBps, but the WRT300N gets me 3 to 4 times that. As I said before unless they have improved the newer models the range at which I could make and keep a good connection was no better than the older G standard but the increase in speed is more than woth it.

    I Love My Job

    I LOVE MY JOB If you don't laugh out loud after you read this you are in a coma! This is even funnier when you realize it's real! Next time you have a bad day at work think of this guy. Rob is a commercial saturation diver for Global Divers in Louisiana . He performs underwater repairs on offshore drilling rigs. Below is an E-mail he sent to his sister. She then sent it to radio station 103.2 FM in Ft. Wayne , Indiana , who was sponsoring a worst job experience contest. Needless to say, she won. Hi Sue, Just another note from your bottom-dwelling brother. Last week I had a bad day at the office. I know you've been feeling down lately at work, so I thought I would share my dilemma with you to make you realize it's not so bad after all Before I can tell you what happened to me, I first must bore you with a few technicalities of my job. As you know, my office lies at the bottom of the sea. I wear a suit to the office. It's a wet suit. This time of year the water is quite cool. So what we do to keep warm is this: We have a diesel powered industrial water heater. This $20,000 piece of equipment sucks the water out of the sea. It heats it to a delightful temperature. It then pumps it down to the diver through agarden hose, which is taped to the air hose. Now this sounds like a darn good plan, and I've used it several times with no complaints. What I do, when I get to the bottom and start working, is take the hose and stuff it down the back of my wet suit. This floods my whole suit with warm water. It's like working in a Jacuzzi. Everything was going well until all of a sudden, my butt started to itch. So, of course, I scratched it. This only made things worse. With in a few seconds my butt started to burn .. I pulled the hose out from my back, but the damage was done. In agony I realized what had happened. The hot water machine had sucked up a jellyfish and pumped it into my suit. Now, since I don't have any hair on my back, the jellyfish couldn't stick to it. However, the crack of my butt was not as fortunate. When I scratched what I thought was an itch, I was actually grinding the jellyfish into the crack of my butt. I informed the dive supervisor of my dilemma over the communicator. His instructions were unclear due to the fact that he, along with five other divers, were all laughing hysterically. Needless to say I aborted the dive. I was instructed to make three agonizing in-water decompression stops totaling thirty-five minutes before I could reach the surface to begin my chamber dry decompression. When I arrived at the surface, I was wearing nothing but my brass helmet. As I climbed out of the water, the medic, with tears of laughter running down his face, handed me a tube of cream and told me to rub it on my butt as soon as I got in the chamber. The cream put the fire out, but I couldn't poop for two days because my butt was swollen shut. So, next time you're having a bad day at work, think about how much worse it would be if you had a jellyfish shoved up your butt. Now repeat to yourself, 'I love my job, I love my job, I love my job.' Now whenever you have a bad day, ask yourself, is this a jellyfish bad day? May you NEVER have a jellyfish bad day!!!!! Pass this on to all your friends, just in case they're having a bad day!!!

    IE8

    I've been using IE8 for about 6 months maybe longer (beta) don't remember exactly when I installed it. I love it, but yes something must be wrong as when the RC1 came out I tried to upgrade a friends computer to it but it totally screwed up the install and would not even run on his system. On my system it still runs fine and I have no complaints with it.
  17. I had a similar issue but it was during shut down of the machine, everything would freeze and the shutdown would take several minutes. I found it buy accident as I had to remove the USB cables from the back of the machine for some reason I don't remember but when I did that I found the shut down was back to normal. I experimented with all the usb plug and found the one port that when something was pluged in to it would cause the problem. It did not show up in the device manager as bad either.
  18. I have a LG FLATRON L227WTG an love it. At the time I bought it it was side by side with the more expensive models and I could watch the same images on all of them. I liked the LG better.
  19. Might be nice to have the old maps to play on but leave those to the modders and make the game with new locations, open maps, and open mission sequence.
  20. Hey Snake@War, what have you decided to do?
  21. While HD are not plate steel I was still a little surprised to see the bullet had not deformed.
  22. Interesting, not being Army I did not know that. Maybe they should have a separate badge for quailifed and keep the Ranger Tab for those that are rangers.
  23. Had a couple of Siamese cats over the years they were the most friendly cats and loved to talk to you. Was very sad when they passed, sorry to hear that your friend passed that way.
  24. Don't know if this will help you and you may have already seen it.
