    YKYAGW on being told that you should take a beanie or something warm for your head to a colder climate, you think that your battered brown fedora will suit the job nicely. It's wool felt, it's the same thing, right? :p

    Be seeing you,

    YKYAGW:

    You decide to read the BSG threads on the sci-fi channel forums.

    YKY not THAT sort of geek, when you Stop reading after one thread because those people are nitpickingly discussing military regulations. GAH.

    YKYAGW you recognise the voice actors of minor NPCs between games... in this instance, the voice actor of the main guy in Painkiller, is also the voice actor of NPC Pavel, the guy you run around with in the tutorial part of Neverwinter Nights, never to be seen again thereafter.

    That's nothing. One of the main NPCs in Mass Effect is Carth Onasi from KotOR. The guy is actually a really interesting character, but the voice makes him hard to take seriously. :p



    Anyway, YKYAGW you want to make a YKWG post about the warm and fuzzy feeling a new video card gives you. I decided it would be better understood here, however. Though can I say: Crysis at 1680 x 1050, everything on high, 60+ fps? =P~

    The video card is an ATI Radeon HD 4870, but the most vital statistic is that it's less than $350. It outperforms nVidia's newest card that costs $100 more. I can heartily recommend it to anyone presently in the market.

    Yes, it is. Maybe I should have said something other than Googling.

    IMDBing, to be precise.

    YKYAGW...

    You hear the man on the TV talking about a Democrat Convention over in the US, and start a) wondering what kind of costumes one would wear to that kind of con, or b) imagining politians dressing in silly outfits, before the brain kicks in and tells you it's probably not that kind of convention...

    I'm thinking John Mcain in a Palpatine costume...


    YKYAGW you deliberately make a message board post from your iPod touch just because you can, even though you're sitting right next to a computer.

    YKYAGW it's August 29th, and you want to raise a glass of something appropriate to those uncertain and non-existent souls who would have lost their lives in a divergent timeline 11 years ago.

    Here's to getting through another Judgement Day! Though we may have to start marking April 19, given that's the new date. However I'll always remember it as August 29th, if only cos two girls I dated shared their birthdays with that date :p

    Be seeing you,

    You're a man with many interesting life stories, Magnus. A good anecdoter, perhaps is the term.


    I say we raise a glass to the woman who stopped it in this timeline. Sarah Connor: you're a knockout gal. Keep up the good work. Watch out for the lukemia.

    No, I'm more of a raconteur :p

    Anyway, you won't hear anymore stories about those girls, except that one was my first girlfriend, and the other was a girl I met during what my friend Andrew charitably calls "My Pulp Adventuring Days", where I hung with men named Fritz, lounge singers named Adelaide, and tipped a lot of cards into hats :p

    But, yes, your suggestion is noted and accepted. To Sarah Connor! May her shotgun never run out of shells!

    Be seeing you,

    Just to clarify: you dated them at different times, right? Because I'm now getting the mental image of you strolling into a smoky blues lounge with a femme fatale on either arm. You wink at the pianist, who recognises his cue for Minnie the Moocher, then greet the barman by his first name and order The Usual: a tall glass of milk with ice and a drop of Bailey's. The other regulars know better than to ask. Not since Black Tuesday.

    Ha! Yes, different times. Thanks for the mental image, but I was never that cool :p
