| Movie/TV Board|| The Net - Doldil on 9/10/13 at 9:08 am|
Just watched this last night to enjoy a little nostalgia. The first time I ever watched that movie I remember thinking to myself, "I can't wait for the day I'm able to order a pizza online" :rotflmao: Here we are almost 20 years later and it's absolutely amazing to me how far things have come.
| Gaming Board|| Project 1999 (everquest) - Doldil on 1/28/13 at 12:18 pm|
any of you old EQ vets play here? I hopped on again last night for the first time in a long while and there were 1k players online. There is no dual boxing allowed on the server, or you'll be banned, and the only way to get multiple characters logged in from the same IP address is to specifically ...
| O-T Lounge|| Suggestions for good headphones to use while exercising - Doldil on 1/10/13 at 9:46 am|
I've got some cheap headphones that I use right now that start to slip out of my ears pretty bad as I start to sweat a lot. They're simple in-ear bud type ones.
I've also had issues (and I think this is again an issue with the headphones) where when I'm sweating really bad, the volume on my ph...

| Movie/TV Board|| He Was a Quiet Man - Doldil on 12/28/12 at 9:39 am|
just found this on Netflix last night and gave it a watch. I figured with Christian Slater, William H. Macy and Elisha Cuthbert that it couldn't be too bad.
It was interesting, that's for damn sure. Christian Slater's character looks remarkably terrible. Movie is about some guy who clearly ge...
| Movie/TV Board|| Another Roku thread (but new and refreshing) - Doldil on 11/14/12 at 11:57 am|
One of the questions that a lot of people have when it comes to using a Roku box (or something similar) as a means of replacing cable/dish is..."what the hell do I do about live sports". Well I finally have an answer to that question:
Roku has a channel called PlayOn (also available on other lik...
| Movie/TV Board|| The Mentalist - Doldil on 11/14/12 at 11:34 am|
Anyone watch this show...is it even still a current airing show? I just finished catching up to live shows on Burn Notice and was looking for something new to watch and gave this a shot.
It reminds me of a more serious version of Psych. That said, I really enjoy Patrick Jane's whole demeanor ...
| Movie/TV Board|| The Mist - Doldil on 10/30/12 at 9:04 am|
Wife wanted to watch a horror movie last night, so after digging around the webbernets looking for some horror movies I'd never seen/heard of; we ended up finding The Mist.
I actually thought this movie was pretty good. I was seriously yelling at the tv at some parts and sitting there thinking...

Recently took a trip to Ireland and watched a little rugby. I find myself wanting to learn more about this sport as it's very intriguing. The basics of it seem simple enough, but the penalties and rucks/scrums and all that type of shite throw me for a loop. Any good sites or anything to learn more...

I don't know how many of you guys use VuDu (walmart's streaming rental/purchasing service) but they finally got a channel on Roku in the last month or so. I found that by installing the channel and signing in on each of my Roku boxes I would get a $5.99 credit added to my account. I have 3 Roku bo...

| O-T Lounge|| patting myself on the back thread - Doldil on 8/21/12 at 9:33 am|
Co-worker just came in to my office and said "Have you seen this" and hands me a flyer going around work to inform everyone that the entire campus will be going smoke-free at some point in the very near future. I looked at her and just smiled and said, "I haven't had a cigarette in over year."
| Olympics Board|| NBC Olympics App rant - Doldil on 8/3/12 at 3:00 pm|
Seriously, this is the biggest piece of shite I've ever used. EVERY SINGLE AD shows up with no problems...the second the event loads it immediately freezes or becomes so fricking pixelated that you can't make out anything but a blob. Then it will clear up for 2 seconds and freeze again. :banghead:...
| Gaming Board|| The Secret World, any opinions? - Doldil on 6/22/12 at 10:09 am|
Anyone know much about this game? One of my buddies has a raging hard on for this game. It looks pretty interesting: no levels, a skill circle sort of deal where you can basically have endless amounts of options when it comes to building your character, and it has this "real world" feel to it in ...
| Gaming Board|| MLB The Show 2012 (venting) - Doldil on 4/23/12 at 10:00 am|
Playing RTTS: I created a fast CF because I'm very average with my power hitters. I figure if I can't drive in the runs, I should create the runs. So I have my CF and let me just say that stealing bases in this game is about 50 million times easier (so far) than previous versions. I can actually...
| O-T Lounge|| Help me find a new pillow! - Doldil on 2/15/12 at 2:41 pm|
So I've come to the conclusion that I'll never find a pillow that I'm happy with. The last one I bought died (flattened to the point of being useless) after about 1-2 months. I have a memory foam pillow, but I find it to be to sit too low for comfort, but stacking it with another pillow makes ever...
| Movie/TV Board|| Conan (the 2011 version) - Doldil on 1/16/12 at 12:04 pm|
Okay, so I just got some surround sound setup in my new place and wanted to find a mindless blood bath type movie to watch. I went with the new Conan movie. It was exactly what I hoped it would be...kinda cheesy with a lot of killing and blood everywhere. It's one I'd definitely buy just to have ...

What's the better option here:
I've just got married a couple of months ago and me and the wife are working on paying off a little debt. She's got a car with < 5k left on it and no credit card debt left (paid it all off earlier this year). The only debt I have are student loans, one of which is...

Heading next Monday to Placencia, Belize. I don't know if anyone on here has ever been out there before, but if you have and can recommend some good things to do let me know. They're supposed to have a nice tour of some Mayan ruins and things of that nature which we'll do. But that's only one day...

Boss just walked in to my office with a "good news, bad news" speech. My "bad news" was letting me know about occurrences (which really isn't that bad) and I had to sign a paper.
Good news, just got a little over a 5% raise! :nana: :nana: :nana:...

Another post got me thinking about this, curious as to what others think.
I personally am getting tired of the whole interleague play thing. I think it needs to be revamped if they want to keep it, or just do away with it completely.
