  1. I walked in got a pair of Keens and walked back out.. I knew better than to walk around the rest of the store. It's much too easy to spend money in an REI.
  2. If you've got an REI anywhere near you, they're currently running a sale that includes Keen Newport sandals, normally $95, marked down to $70.
  3. I picked up the album yesterday, but so far, nothing is really jumping out and grabbing my attention (except The Hand That Feeds). However, that's similar to my intial impressions of The Fragile, which I grew to greatly enjoy after multiple listenings.
  4. Urg. Resistance fading - but I'm moving next week so it'll have to wait till after that. I keep on getting distracted as it is, I don't need a new game to make it worse. :bh
  5. I joined - and am as puzzled by CMWKTRW as anyone else...
  6. Need a charging dock for your DS? Click
  7. Found out from the insuance company today that it's totaled. No estimate on what they'll give me for it yet.
  8. Thanks - me too :tu Still no official word from an adjuster, but the claims rep I spoke to gave me an estimate of what they would pay out if it's totaled, and it would at least pay off what I owe, with a little bit left over. Not as good as giving me enough for a downpayment on a new vehicle , but I'll be happy not to be paying on a car I don't have anymore. It wasn't overly light, but it certainly wasn't Atlanta rush hour thick, thankfully. I'm just glad everyone else must have been on their toes to avoid me like they did.
  9. Count me in the PSP owners' club as well. Got it last Friday and am loving it. :tu Picked up Lumines (which I suck hopelessly at), Ridge Racer and Wipeout.
  10. ...aka Why I'm Glad To Still Be Posting So it's the evening of Easter, and I'm on the roads into Atlanta, on my way to visit a friend and investigate some career opportunities. I'm cruising along I-285, unfortunately the weather is very unpleasant - heavy rains and thunderstorms. I'm in the inside lane, not trying to change lanes, when I see out of the corner of my eye a car coming into me fast. Next thing I know I've got the passenger side windows imploding and I'm spinning across 4 lanes of traffic, doing at least one, maybe two, 360s and seeing the headlights of the vehicles behind me out of my windshield as I spin past. Fortunately they all manage to avoid hitting me and I don't spin into anyone in front of me. I finally come to a stop by bumping into the concrete barrier along the outside lane (I've slowed down a lot at this point since my foot made it onto the brake without any assistance from my brain.) Anyway, once I've stopped, I discover that I'm fine - not a scratch on me (just a bad case of the shakes). The other car ended up staying on the inside of all the lanes, so I let the police do all the walking back and forth across the traffic. (No ambulances, so it seems like no one was hurt in the other vehicle either.) His initial assessment was that the other car probably lost control (perhaps trying to merge into my lane and overcorrecting when they realized I was there) and spun first, right into me. Here's a few shots of the damage to the car... not destroyed or anywhere near it, but it still took quite a tap on the side. The insurance adjuster hasn't had a look at the car yet, but the majority opinion seems to be that it's probably going to be totaled. Then finding a rental car in Atlanta that I could drive back to Nashville was an incredible pain (for some reason it seemed like almost every rental car in Atlanta was booked this past weekend). But all things being how they are, I'm just glad to be ok, and glad that I didn't have a passenger with me - with the way the side got pushed in, I think they would have been hurt, possibly very seriously. Now I'm off to play some PSP Ridge Racer where it's safe to pull 360s.
  11. Cool. No going crazy - from me anyway - was just getting ready to post some images and couldn't track down whether the 640x480 restriction was still in place. Thanks!
  12. Are the site rules (such as the terms of use, posting guidelines (for example, the limits on the size of user posted images)) still anywhere on the boards? I am probably just missing them in some very obvious location, but I can't find them anywhere. :confused:
