That's what the beekeeper said. And that's not good!

Is it still a mystery why Sudden Hive Collapse strikes? If so, we need to figure out what's wrong pronto. No bees means no us eventually.

Again with the cheery news. Sorry. Didn't a newspaper that printed only good news go out of business quickly?

Looks like "Sully" Sullenburger had to retire from flying. He doesn't look happy about it. Would a statue be inappropriate?

A set of wings and a hallo might be more to the point! I literally shed tears every time I see the clip of that landing...like a swan on the Potomac...

I flew to Boston and back on the same kind of plane three months before that unbelievably smooth landing. Would the pilot of that Airbus be able to pull off such an amazing landing in Boston's harbor? Sure, sure he could.

I'm glad that the pilot of my plane didn't have to attempt one. Whew!

And the company store has morphed(ugly looking word, that) into the invisible machine that holds all of us upside down and vigorously shakes any money left to us into its jagged mouth. Progress! Not.

I'm reading The Glass Castle, a memoir by Jeanette Walls(I have to have a book handy while my machine reboots in sloow motion). And I thought I had a messed up childhood?

Rumor, rumor on the wall, who's the___________ of them all? Better not be me. Hopefully!

Why not make your day? Send me a Private Message requesting the one and only official AOA case badge. I might even send you two of them!

Your mission, should you decide to accept it: Send me a Private Message in aid of obtaining your very own most beneficial official case badge from AOA. This device will not self destruct(unless you mean my desktop machine which is about a breath away from extinction) in five, four, three, etc.

Remedying the olde unhappy box situation. Bought $800 worth of components yesterday, starting with a $55 Asus AM3 mobo. I know that's an exorbitant amount to spend on a mainboard, cough. This is the cheapest m'board I've ever bought, even those hideous Soyo's last century were ~$89! wish me luck!
For OCing is a thing of the past for me, I've listened to screaming fans for way too long! Yes, I could go water cooled, but H2O in the case seems too weird to me.

Geeze, what did you spend the $800 on then?

I've been looking at stuff for new build too, but it will have to wait.
