    My terrarium pics

    That's a great setup! That's the perfect solution to the problem I'm having with my plants. I don't have a great location where the sun shines in all day, and was hoping to do something just like that. It was mentioned before, but I too am wondering what kind of lights you are using. If...

    Oddly shaped trap

    Hey guys, this trap popped up and is pretty strange looking. I am hoping that the plant is fine, is this considered a mutation? I transplanted the plant this year after it came out of dormancy, so I'm hoping I don't have any root problems.

    Old asteroid game

    Hehe. Josh...I used to think the same way as you until I started working on one for 8 hours a day. They build in so many little things that make life easier and just make sense. I would get so used to being on one, I would get home and work on my PC and it just didn't seem right. I do wish you...

    Old asteroid game

    I guess the problem is that the program is made to run on OS 9. The new intel based Macs can't run OS 9 programs. I guess I will just have to play it at work. Nice job on finding that!

    Old asteroid game

    Thanks guys! That looks like it's the right game....now the only problem is that I have a new mac with one of the Intel chips, and it says it's not supported on this system. Any other ideas? I thought that under "Rosetta" these new computers would run anything the old ones did.

    Old asteroid game

    I'm trying to find an old game I played 10+ years ago on an apple computer. I think it was called Asterex or something like that. It was basically an asteroid game like the classic, except it had ship upgrades and weapon upgrades and was in full color. I think I remember it being only for Apple...

    Any mac users?

    I am a big fan of both. I have used a PC all my life.....but am using a mac at work. IMO....Mac is more user friendly and organized with the way you can browse files. I also love the look they have. I haven't worked much on a fast mac....the one at work is only a 867 mhz with 512 MB of ram. I am...

    Any mac users?

    Hey everyone. Long time no type.... I was just curious if there are any Mac users on here. I have been a PC user all my life, and started working on a mac about a year ago. I think I am going to purchase my first mac ever as soon as the macbook pro is released with the 17" screen (hopefully...

    anyone here playing with Maya?

    I have played with it a little bit. It's a powerful 3D modeling/animation program used for alot of games and some big movies (spiderman maybe??) I have used 3D Studio max to do alot more with 3D stuff than maya and tried it mostly just to see how it compared. I work at an advertising agency...

    Any bowlers?

    I don't take part in the warm up cocktails....but I did have a great night of bowling this week. It wasn't in league, it was with a friend bowling for fun. I bowled a 168, 212, and a 177. Probably my best series ever of a 557. Would be great to hit a 600 series someday......preferabley in league .

    Any bowlers?

    That's a heavy ball April! Mine is a 14 lb fingertip. I don't have a backup ball. Generally I stand on the first dot to the left of the middle, and throw at the third arrow from the right. (You must be left handed?) That is a good idea to just go out and practice with some friends. I bowled...

    Any bowlers?

    I think that you're right Alvin. I had a bad game and then starting thinking too much about it and ended up making it even worse. I know the main guys that run the bowling alley, and one of them is going to watch me and help me out a little bit next week. I could probably get it back by...

    Any bowlers?

    I have been bowling for over 10 years now......and all of a sudden I don't remember how to throw correctly! It's driving me nuts. I have a fingertip ball and normally when I bowl, my ball has a pretty good hook on it. I switched to fingertip about 3 or 4 years ago, and have bowled several 200+...
