I REALLY really sympathize with Radcliffe, Grint and Watson... they handle this SO well xD  Go Kana Matsuda! xD (subtitles are present)

from: http://www.worstpreviews.com/headline.php?id=14348

Japanese high-school girl Kana Matsuda won a contest to visit the UK set of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" and to meet the cast of the movie, including Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson.

The result is lots of excitement, lots of touching and a whole bunch of awkwardness. The reaction on the girl's face is priceless and some of you may end up respecting these actors a bit more after you see how much they are willing to tolerate for their fans.

Watch all three videos below.

Funnies / The Seven Legged Spider Debacle 2: The Ducks Are Not Mine
« on: June 04, 2009, 06:41:07 pm »
from geekologie 

I dont know if you guys saw the The Seven Legged Spider Debacle, but if you didnt you really should cos heres the sequel. But dont worry its not connected to the first in any way.

This is all REAL correspondence BTW including the first one :D

Subject: Pets in the building

Dear Helen,

Thankyou for your letter concerning pets in my apartment. I understand that having dogs in the apartment is a violation of the agreement due to the comfort and wellbeing of my neighbours and I am currently soundproofing my apartment with egg cartons as I realise my dogs can cause quite a bit of noise. Especially during feeding time when I release live rabbits.

Regards, David.

Hello David

I have received your email and wish to remind you that the strata agreement states that no animals are allowed in the building regardless of if your apartment is soundproof. How many dogs do you have at the premises?

Dear Helen,

Currently I only have eight dogs but one is expecting puppies and I am very excited by this. I am hoping for a litter of at least ten as this is the number required to participate in dog sled racing. I have read every Jack London novel in preparation and have constructed my own sled from timber I borrowed from the construction site across the road during the night. I have devised a plan which I feel will ensure me taking first place in the next national dog sled championships. For the first year of the puppies life I intend to say the word mush then chase them violently around the apartment while yelling and hitting saucepan lids together. I have estimated that the soundproofing of my apartment should block out at least sixty percent of the noise and the dogs will learn to associate the word mush with great fear so when I yell it on race day, the panic and released adrenaline will spur them on to being winners. I am so confident of this being a foolproof plan that I intend to sell all my furniture the day before the race and bet the proceeds on coming first place.

Regards, David.

David, I am unsure what to make of your email. Do you have pets in the apartment or not?

Dear Helen,

No. I have a goldfish but due to the air conditioner in my apartment being stuck on a constant two degrees celcius, the water in its bowl is iced over and he has not moved for a while so I do not think he is capable of disturbing the neighbours. The ducks in the bathroom are not mine. The noise which my neighbours possibly mistook for a dog in the apartment is just the looping tape I have of dogs barking which I play at high volume while I am at work to deter potential burglars from breaking in and stealing my tupperware. I need it to keep food fresh. Once I ate leftover chinese that had been kept in an unsealed container and I experienced complete awareness. The next night I tried eating it again but only experienced chest pains and diarrhoea.

Regards, David.

Hello David

You cannot play sounds of dogs or any noise at a volume that disturbs others. I am sure you can appreciate that these rules are for the benefit of all residents of the building. Fish are fine. You cannot have ducks in the apartment though. If it was small birds that would be ok.

Dear Helen,

They are very small ducks.

David, under section 4 of the strata residency agreement it states that you cannot have pets. You agreed to these rules when you signed the forms. These rules are set out to benefit everyone in the building including yourself. Do you have a telephone number I can call you on to discuss?

Dear Helen,

The ducks will no doubt be flying south for the winter soon so it will not be an issue. It is probably for the best as they are not getting along very well with my seventeen cats anyway. .

Regards, David.

David, I am just going to write on the forms that we have investigated and you do not have any pets.

Communal Assistance / Help!!! Vista wont let me OC my VGA!!!
« on: March 01, 2009, 06:37:54 pm »
@ least thats how i read it.

Started cos I was getting ultra low framerates in CoD4:MP all of a sudden. I thought it was the heat, but Catalyst was showing temps that were supposedly normal (and Ive played on) for my ATi 4850. So i restarted the pc, updated drivers and all that jazz. Then CoD4 started crashing. Not crashing exactly but it would freeze when the game loaded and go to a black screen. When I forcibly closed the .exe Vista gives me an error saying "display driver atikmdag stopped responding and has successfully recovered"  :P the creme de la creme was when it gave me my first bloody blue screen on Vista (i wondered how that looked like  :P)

So i google... and there are a quite a few fixes ranging from uninstalling a Vista update (done) to switching to a single stick of RAM ( no bloody way :P)  What worked was when i underclocked the card :( but the framrates still arent as good as they were :( it affected every game i had installed Fallout 3, Left 4 Dead ...

Any of you hardware gurus know exactly what this is and how/if i can fix it?  :yes:  Muchas Gracias in advance mi Amigos  (Y)
