I just like places. I think they mostly have good things if you look for them, I guess.

.....


I am kind of excited about Inglourious Basterds.

you're positive about things.  i like that about you.

i'm concerned about that movie's glorification of violence.

I keep seeing terrible ads for it!  I might agree with Stanley about this.  It turns me off for some reason.

Is the computer problem anything I might be able to help with, P?

I don't know!

It was acting funny yesterday so I decided to try to restart it.  Then I got a "fan error" after the Windows startup page and it shut back down.  I can't get it to restart.  It seems like something a techie needs to go in and play around with, but if there's some kind of easy solution, let me know!  I'd much rather try that than send it off to China for repair. (It's a late-model ThinkPad running XP, btw.)

Fan errors, appropriately, mean something is going on with the main cooling fan. Could be easy to fix, could be a pain. On the bottom of the computer, there should be a grille, behind which the main fan sits. If there are some screws around that grille, you should be able to safely take them off, if you're comfortable doing so. If not, that's okay, but the next step (blowing canned air onto the fan) may not be as effective. If you don't have canned air, you can use a vacuum on reverse if you have a wand attachment, but there needs to be a good, strong, steady wind coming out to blow anything lose. If the fan doesn't move when wind is hitting it, that's not enough air flow. It should definitely spin if you hit it with canned air.

After that's done, disconnect the power and take the battery out for a couple minutes. Put the battery back in and power it up, and see if it starts properly. If you get the fan error again, the fan is likely going out and will need to be replaced. One alternative Matthies has used is a pad with a large cooling fan on it, blowing directly into the bottom of the laptop. Might be an option for you.

Wow, thanks for this!  Goalie is right!

My warranty won't cover it if I open it up, but I will try to get some canned air tomorrow and see if that does anything.  It's not overheated (I unplugged it and left it open upside-down with a fan on it all day), but it won't start up without the fan working, so I don't think a pad like Matthies' would help, alas.  I am (as I implied earlier) still under warranty, so I can send it off to get fixed, but it's bad timing because I'm about to leave town.  Oh, well.  ThinkPads have really gone to *&^% since Lenovo started making them.  :(

A clumsy metaphor is that LA is certainly not the most gorgeous girl in the room, but for some ineffable reason, I can't take my eyes off of her.

<--- also not the most gorgeous girl in the room.

js.

Congrats, Matthies and Mu!

My computer is broken, btw.  I won't be around much, I don't think.

I'm going to catch a lot of heat for this but WTF? Let's stir the pot up a little just for fun.  So do a lot of women...

Oh, FFS.

I don't even know if they could get in while in costume. And that would totally destroy the purpose of finding them.

eta: I'm sure the Crowne Plaza would have a bar, wouldn't it?

It appears as if they rented out the ballrrom for a "dance"

There are 3 of us, and I happen to have 3 video cameras, we should totally go and get some footage

I really hope y'all did this!

I just watched Desperately Seeking Susan.

The only thing worse than Madonna's acting in Desperately Seeking Susan is everyone else's acting in Desperately Seeking Susan.  And the character development.  And the plot.  And...yeah.

But - but - but!  Didn't you find it . . . important? Like all of the John Hughes movies we discussed last night, it was very serious beeswax in my yoofs.

I just spent a little while here trying to figure out how it was important.  I couldn't come up with anything.  :-\

Well, there was this.  And also, you know, Madonna was in it.

Ooh what where now? It wasn't in the obvious suspect for a thread that shall not be named.

In retrospect, I'm not sure why I rated it so high.  But it was good.

if anyone is still around, I have a quick favor to ask.

Do I count?

(And thanks for the 'tar, btw.)

also, THANK GOD.

That you've escaped my wrath even though you've left the sanctity of the harpy-free zone?  Or did I miss something?

the game finally ended.

Oh.  I was watching another game.

Okay, now, I need to see a replay of that.

ETA: And wtf with Frankie lately, seriously?  (I went to Tuesday's game, so I'm particularly sensitive about this.)
