Is satellite reasonably reliable these days? I know it used to suck really badly, but we've also heard from some people using it now that it's a lot better now. But then, they're not poker players or gamers, and they'd notice temporary disruptions in service an awful lot less than we would.
Are any of you currently using satellite connections to play (poker, or gaming -- games would have similar experiences with connection quality issues, just without $1,000+ in play at the time), online? How often does it bite you on the ass? More important, how often does it bite you on the ass unexpectedly? We're okay with outages during storms, which are rare and would have dialup backup available -- we're not so okay with frequent random lagginess, and dropping out of six or eight tables of poker with a bunch of money in play for no discernable reason on a regular basis.

EDIT: Does anyone have any idea how they filmed this (http://www.amfp.org/boondock/snap0376.jpg) shot? From the angle that it's at, you should be able to see the camera.
what piece of furniture (other than beds) in your house is the most comfortable to sit and/or lay on?
do you like sleeping on the floor? why? why not?
are you able to fall asleep normally in a hotel/motel room? why? why not?
when listening to music at bedtime, what do you like to hear?
WHAT THE %$#& IS A "SHINTO BENCH."
I was looking at this asian furniture site and they have a lot of these things, and I was wondering what they were. Unfortunately I can find about 2389047102938099 other places selling them, but absolutely none of them explain what it actually IS.
eta: w/out having to reinstalling windows hopefully?
Sadly I have no idea how to fix in and was hoping someone here could either help me or point me in the right direction.
I turned on her Dell laptop which is running windows XP. It seems fine until it gets to the login screen. Whenever I attempt to click on her login in I get the blue screen of death.
it mentions physical memory
I don't have any idea how to fix this. I searched and I kept getting things that told me to turn off the paging in the virtual memory... can someone please help?
2. Saran wrap or aluminum foil?
1. Did you go to college when you graduated from high school (or plan to, if you are still in high school)?
2. Were your parents strict with discipline? What constitutes "strict" to you?
3. Were you respectful to your teachers in school? Did you get rude with them or say arrogant, smart-aleck-y things in class?
4. What is your viewpoint on respect? How did your parents teach this to you? Do you believe that everyone deserves respect until they prove that they don't? Do you think that teens should respect their teachers (assuming the teachers are good people deserving of respect)?
I am currently teaching high school, and even though it's been four years since I started working with teenagers I am amazed at how different things seem to be since I was in school. There seems to be a huge lack of discipline and respect. I'm only 32; surely things can't have changed THAT much since I was in school? I'm trying to figure out if there is actually a generation gap or if it is just this particular school.
What do you think happened to Richey James Edwards? Do you think he's killed himself? Do you think he was murdered? Or perhaps he's just had enough of the spotlight and just disappeared somewhere?
When I chat with my friends on the telephone, I like to have a cup of coffee, sit in my office, put my feet up and relax. Am I just old-fashioned?
Is there anyone else out there who doesn't have a cell phone?
What are your telephone habits?
Why do you feel a cell phone is necessary or unnecessary?
what are some of your favourite comic strips?
what books of them do you have (i.e., "the far side", "calvin & hobbes", etc...)?
what are some comic strips can you do w/out?
what are some that you like to quote?
who do you suggest that i check out?
I'm watching the show with her right now, just for the hell of it, and I can't understand what this could possibly have to do with media criticism.
Am I missing something or is her professor insane?
Where did you stay? Did you like it?
Even if you haven't been there...anywhere specific you've heard of to stay and/or stay away from??
Looking for a place for the weekend and there's lot of choices with not so many blow-me-away-oh-how-romantic options. Thanks
I have been trying them out and have been loosing weight, so they appear to be doing the trick.
Does anyone recommend any low fat/healthy meal brands? And are there any that are not nearly as healthy or good for you as they lead you to believe?
Does anyone know what that game is? Thank you in advance, mis hijos.
(Fuck it if my Spanish isn't right. I dun care.)
Yeah, sorry about the HTML problem. I'm not paying attention to life right now. Playin' Pokemon and watching Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends. :D
(the bottled water)
As for me, I wish I new more about people.

Reguarding the events of September 11th -
1) Do you think you would have jumped from a window or offed yourself some other way had you been trapped in the towers that day? What are your opinions of those who did?
2) Do you think you would have helped crash the plane downed in PA in order to possibly save the lives of others who might have been where ever they planned on striking with that one? What are your opinions of those that did?
ETA : For those who follow a faith that believes suicide is one of/the worst sin imaginable, how do you think your God judged the people who basically died at their own hands that day? Does God make an exeption for extraordinary circumstances, or does He still think you should give all control to Him?
Do you think the following situation is weird?
As a lot of you seem to know, I am getting married and my fiancé is an only child. He is 25 years old. His mother has kind of freaked out since we've been engaged - actually, "kind of" would be quite the understatement. Anyway, to get to the point, she wanted to get a tattoo of a heart with Barry's initials inside and underneath, have it say "My heart" in Gaelic/Irish. My fiancé says he wouldn't think it AS weird if she were to get his initials AND her husband, but she doesn't want that. I wouldn't think it were that weird if she had done this when he was born or if he died suddenly but he is just getting married!
I know at least ONE person will think this is pretty normal, but I'm wondering what everyone else thinks. (And I realize the general situation would give you more insight as to how weird this is but I'm not going to go through everything.)
I might be playing a pirate character in a RPG soon, and I don't speak pirate
Anyone know the name of the font used on the 'I love new york' shirts?
Also, I don't know what they're called, but does anyone know where you can get those custom made "borders" people put around their license plates? They put them over top of their license plates and it goes around them acting as a border and they say stuff like "I love golf" or whatever
what is your favorite girl scout cookie?
i say the thin mints are laced with heroin.
I wake up from at least one practically every night. It feels a bit excessive.
So I'm pretty sure my dog's going to be put down tomorrow. My mom said she refuses to call me tomorrow if that's what the vet says we should do so I can be there with him, she's just going to go through with it and tell me later. I'm kind of, uh, in pieces tonight.
So aside from that, I have to work tomorrow night from 4-8 and I need to do some lesson plans and practice for those, I have two essays to write that are due Tuesday (if I don't do Tuesday's work tonight it won't get done tomorrow when I get home), yet at the same time, who the fuck cares? My dog's going to die tomorrow.
If you were in my position right now, what would you do? I'm really lost. And this is just the beginning.
2. Have you ever had Raspberry Pie?
Yes. It's gross.
3. Have you ever seen Ghost World?
4. Do you have an ice cream maker?
I think I'm going to buy one tomorrow.
Yes, I googled, but I am having a hard time with it. I suck at searching.
I know someone just posted about their favorite girl scout cookies.. but any one know when they start selling those things? I just happen to stumble on them when I'm out shopping, and last time I remember buying them, it was warm out. I'm really in the mood for Tagalongs!!
