    Office and gaming chairs

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a good office + gaming chair? I've been buying these piece of shit chairs from Sams Club that, while seem great at the store, end up destroying my back. Price-wise I'm looking at around the $500 mark being fine. I've been eyeing the DXRacer chairs, but...

    Yeah, I know, why use Bing when there's Google? Because FREE MONEY. I've managed to earn nearly 75 bucks in Amazon gift cards using Bing. It's pretty easy to rack up points. Just search for everything, even if you know the address already. BING

    Zoo (starring James Wolk and Billy Burke) [CBS]

    Okay, let me preface this by saying this is NOT an amazing series or anything. But god damn it can be funny as hell -- not sure if it's intentional or not. I really haven't determined if the series is taking itself seriously or not. Although, after last night's rat episode I'm thinking it's...

    Group tour recommendations?

    Does anyone here have experience with group tours? Specifically, I'd like recommendations for any good tour services that offer these. I've run across "TrekAmerica" and "IntrepidTravel" in my Google searches which appear to have mostly good reviews. Currently I'm mostly interested in tours of...

    Equal Pay for Equal Work?

    Generally speaking, the term "equal pay for equal work" is used in the context of sexual discrimination. But I have an interesting situation -- could this discrimination be applied to other factors, namely, education? Here's the situation: a couple years back I was promoted to a software...

    Anyone watch Dwight's new show? I was really looking forward to this but, man, I ended up turning it off half way in. The case wasn't interesting nor was it particularly funny.

    Programmer / Software Developer forums?

    Are there any good sites where one can get tips/suggestions for one's programming questions and quandaries? I've used Stackoverflow, but I'd prefer a place whether they aren't so strict as to what one can ask.

    Dark Souls

    All this talk of Dark Souls II makes me want to go back and complete the first one. I bought Dark Souls when it first came out and just rolled my own character and just randomly went with stats and weapon choices. Game got annoyingly difficult late in the game and I gave up at the multi-King...

    Attention all you werewolfs lovers out there: Canada's Space channel just started broadcasting "Bitten" starring Laura Vandervoort (aka Supergirl from Smallville). I've watched the first episode. Wasn't too bad. And, hey, get to see her ass so that's a bonus.

    Need advice for creating Usenet indexer site

    I want to create a website that's essentially a usenet indexer for movies. As an example, most movie and TV-show sites (like and others) have Title, Actor, Director, Genre, etc. etc. filters. Plus, nice little coverart and scene clips. My question is, which technologies do I need...

    Manager wanting to change work hours on you -- what to do?

    So I've worked with this company going on 6 years now. A few months ago they changed their support hours of operation by 2 hours earlier and 2 hours later. They have hired new support staff that agreed to work in either of two shifts. The guys in our department are a "second tier" level of...

    Does anyone here watch this? I sort of decided to watch it out of a random pick of shows that have decent ratings. I just completed season 1 a few days ago. It's on ABC and is a political drama. It's actually really fucking good, at least in my opinion. I begun the series not liking the...

    King of the Nerds

    This is a reality competition show that recently started on TBS. Moderately interesting if you consider yourself a "nerd". It's more interesting for the fact that the nerd girls are pretty cute (well, except for one).

    Multi-hard disk enclosure

    Can anyone recommend a decent hard drive enclosure that will hold at minimum two drives? I see plenty of these on NewEgg that range anywhere from 80 bucks up to several hundred dollars. The reviews are all over the place since buyers tend to rate stuff 1 star because they're ignorant. For...
