Disappointly on-again, off-again for the Wings. I've no doubt we'll pull it off...but why do we have to keep digging ourselves into such a hole first?

Re: How Separate are your Online and Meatspace Identities?

One and the same.

My usual username was actually taken on this forum, but this is one of the few where I don't have my name out in the open.

Re: So who is a competitive gamer around here?

Madden? The game that is fairly universally derided as "Change a few names, slap on a new cover, ship out last year's version, cash the check"? Did they change that formula or something? The same. Fortunately for me, I'd never played it until this year's version. I got all the years of in...

Re: How unique are your browser settings?

My system font collection is unique - one in 780,678.

Interestingly, my plugin combinations are not that much more rare than the browser. One in 50K are running my version of Opera, one in 150K my plugins.

Re: NHL Hockey

Detroit. From "Oh ****, we're going to miss the playoffs for the first time in two decades" to "it's ours, baby" in two weeks. Thankfully, we won't have to play Edmonton. We're not so good at that this year. Only been to a couple of games this season. Finances being what they are...

It seems as though summer jobs can be rated in their "good"-ness using three catagories: 1. Money-making Opportunities 2. Professional Development / Career Opportunities 3. Networking / Social Opportunities (can be shortened to "fun job / fun coworkers" for the unambitious among ...
