General Discussion / Aphorism
« on: September 17, 2019, 01:22:54 PM »
Aphorism:  A short, pointed sentence that expresses a wise or clever observation: 
 
1. The nicest thing about the future is that it always starts right away.
 
2 Money will buy a fine dog but only kindness will make him wag his tail.
 
3. If you don't have a sense of humour you probably don't have any sense at all.
 
4. Seat belts are not as confining as wheelchairs.
 
5. A good time to keep your mouth shut is when you're in deep water.
 
6. How come it takes so little time for a child who is afraid of the dark to become a teenager who wants to stay out all night?
 
7. Business conventions are important because they demonstrate how many people a company  can operate without.
 
8. Why is it that at class reunions you feel younger than everyone else looks?
 
9. Stroke a cat and you will have a permanent job.
 
10.  No one has more driving ambition than the teenage boy who wants to buy a car.
 
11. There are no new sins; the old ones just get more publicity.
 
12. There are worse things than getting a call for a wrong number at 4 a.m - for example, it could be the right number.
 
13. No one ever says "It's only a game" when their team is winning.
 
14. I've reached the age where 'happy hour' is a nap.
 
15. Be careful about reading the fine print - there's no way you're going to like it.
 
16. The trouble with bucket seats is that not everybody has the same size bucket.
 
17. Do you realize that, in about 40 years, we'll have thousands of old ladies running around with tattoos?
 
18. Money can't buy happiness but somehow it's more comfortable to cry in a Jaguar than in a Ford.
 
19. After 70, if you don't wake up aching in most every joint, you're probably dead.
 
20. Always be yourself because the people who matter don't mind and the ones who mind don't matter.
 
21. Life isn't tied with a bow but it's still a gift.
 
And REMEMBER...."POLITICIANS AND DIAPERS SHOULD BE CHANGED OFTEN AND FOR THE SAME REASON

« on: August 19, 2019, 12:28:51 PM »
It looks like the server is unavailable.
It does show up in Hamachi but it doesn't show up in the game browser.
I also can't remote into it.

It will have to wait until Fish gets back.

General Discussion / The perfect Husband
« on: June 17, 2019, 11:17:14 AM »
Several men are in the locker room of a golf club.  A cellular phone on a bench rings and a man engages the hands-free speaker function and begins  to talk.  Everyone else in the room stops to listen. 
 
MAN:   "Hello"                                                             
WOMAN: "Hi Honey, it's me.  Are you at the club?"                     
 
MAN:   "Yes." 
 
WOMAN: "I'm at the shops now and found this beautiful leather coat. It's only $2,000; is it OK if I buy it?"
 
MAN:   "Sure, go ahead if you like it that much."
 
WOMAN: "I also stopped by the Lexus dealership and saw the new models.  I saw one I really liked"
 
MAN:   "How much?"
 
WOMAN: "$90,000."
 
MAN:   "OK, but for that price I want it with all the options." 
 
WOMAN: "Great! Oh, and one more thing... I was just talking to Janie and found out that the house I wanted last year is back on the market. They're asking $980,000 for it."
 
MAN:   "Well, then go ahead and make an offer of $900,000.  They'll probably take it.  If not, we can go the extra eighty-thousand if it's what you really want."
 
WOMAN: "OK I'll see you later! I love you so much!"
 
MAN:   "Bye! I love you, too."
 
The man hangs up. The other men in the locker room are staring at him in astonishment, mouths wide open.
 
He turns and asks, "Anyone know whose phone this is?

Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter / Map called Avenues
« on: March 29, 2019, 11:33:25 PM »
Was over at GhostRecon.net and saw this question.

Does anyone know what the map name is for Avenues? I've always wanted to play that map as OGR Coop. Maybe someone has successfully created avenues for OGR COOP.

It's within the games .bundle file.  I think quick.bundle. I was curious if anyone knew the actual maps name within the bundle is all. 

Any ideas?

General Discussion / A stranger
« on: September 12, 2018, 02:15:28 PM »
A few years after I was born, my Dad met a stranger who was new to our small town. From the beginning, Dad was fascinated with this enchanting newcomer and soon invited him to live with our family.
 
The stranger was quickly accepted and was around from then on. As I grew up, I never questioned his place in my family. In my young mind, he had a special niche.
 
My parents were complementary instructors: Mom taught me good from evil, and Dad taught me to obey.   

But the stranger... He was our storyteller. He would keep us spellbound for hours on end with adventures, mysteries and comedies.

If I wanted to know anything about politics, history or science, he always knew the answers about the past, understood the present and even seemed able to predict the future! He took my family to the first major league ball game. He made me laugh, and he made me cry. The stranger never stopped talking, but Dad didn't seem to mind. Sometimes, Mom would get up quietly while the rest of us were shushing each other to listen to what he had to say, and she would go to the kitchen for peace and quiet. (I wonder now if she ever prayed for the stranger to leave.)
 
Dad ruled our household with certain moral convictions,  the stranger never felt obligated to honor them.
 
Profanity, for example, was not allowed in our home - not from us, our friends or any visitors. Our long time visitor, however, got away with four-letter words that burned my ears and made my dad squirm and my mother blush.   

My Dad didn't permit the liberal use of alcohol but the stranger encouraged us to try it on a regular basis. He made cigarettes look cool, cigars manly, and pipes distinguished. He talked freely (much too freely!) about sex. His comments were sometimes blatant, sometimes suggestive, and generally embarrassing...
 
I now know that my early concepts about relationships were influenced strongly by the stranger. Time after time, he opposed the values of my parents, yet he was seldom rebuked... And NEVER asked to leave.
 
More than fifty years have passed since the stranger moved in with our family. He has blended right in and is not nearly as fascinating as he was at first.       Still, if you could walk into my parents' den today, you would still find him sitting over in his corner, waiting for someone to listen to him talk and watch him draw his pictures.
 
His name?.....
 
 
We just call him 'TV'.
 
(Note: This should be required       reading for every household!)
 
He has a wife now....we call her 'Computer'.
 
Their first child is "Cell Phone"

Second child "I Pod".
 
And JUST BORN A FEW YEARS AGO WAS a Grandchild: IPAD.

General Discussion / Nearly Ex
« on: September 11, 2018, 12:48:23 PM »
One evening, after the honeymoon, Bob was working on his Harley motorcycle in the garage.  His new wife was standing there by the bench watching him.
 
After a long period of silence she finally said, "Honey, I've just been thinking, now that we’re married, maybe it's time you quit spending so much of your time out here in your garage.
You probably should consider selling your Harley and all that welding equipment; they take up so much of your time.  And that gun collection and fishing gear, they just take up so much space. And you know the boat is such an ongoing expense; and you hardly use it.I also think you should lose all those stupid model airplanes and your home brewing equipment..."And what’s the use of that vintage hot rod sports car?
 
Bob got a horrified look on his face.
 
She noticed and said, "Darling, what's wrong?"
 
He replied, "You were starting to sound like my ex-wife."
 
"Ex-wife!?" she shouted, "YOU NEVER TOLD ME YOU WERE MARRIED BEFORE!"
 
Bob replied, “I wasn't..."
