Re: External Hard Drive

A wood enclosure would run a serious risk of catching on fire . Most seem to have paper labels and never seen one even blacken so I doubt ot is that bad Agreed, but the fact remains that metal cases would provide better cooling than a wood case, no matter how nifty it would be. I'm looking for an e...

Re: External Hard Drive

Easiest to get an enclosure with all of the stuff already part of it.... Well, true, and if all else fails, I can get an external HD, and replace the one they provide with one of mine, though that would be expensive. On the other hand, style has to factor in here. How many manufacturers do you know...

Re: Which WoW server

Alliance on Suramar. Nice normal server, with a surprisingly helpful population, barring Brismoore, the local troll. Mains are Boonie, 72 Human Retadin, and Samonin, Fury Warrior of same race and level.

Re: External Hard Drive

I'm also looking to get an external hard disk or two. I've got some hard disks I'd like to use for the purpose, and some plastic sheets suitable for building a container out of. All I need still is the interface unit, something to let me connect my IDE drives to USB outlets, and nothing I've been ab...

Re: Most WTF moment in Boardgames

Edit: This may not be a WTF moment like the rest of you posted, but during a D&D campaign I was in, one of our party members was a little were-rat shapeshifter we picked up in the dungeon, and who was familiar with the zombie we were currently locked in combat with. I forget just how it happened, b...

Re: Most WTF moment in Boardgames

Haha, I love cascades like that. Turn a light damage hit into a world shattering blast. :mrgreen: No kidding. I was once playing a Jedi in Star Wars d6, and I killed 6 people in a single round from a prone position. The GM didn't even have me roll damage. I just rolled so many 6's on the to hit rol...

The only clue I had that this was the Onion was that I'd seen the story before on their site. The line I really like is the last one, "The other four victims of the crash remain in intensive care at St. Peter's University Hospital, suffering from conditions ranging from poor to lower-class."

I feel obligated to remind the world as a whole that Alphonse Capone was only jailed because the IRS got him for income tax evasion. One does not piss off the taxmen. More relevantly, one could easily nail the churches on the grounds that, while churches are tax-exempt, organizations which engage in...
