While that is a tasty meal, I prefer a cold breakfast. But, I SHOULD learn how to cook at least a few basic things. http://www.tredonox.com/emoticons/icon_xeyes.gif Then eat cold cereal for breakfast and cook what Rekarp suggested for dinner. It's quick, hot and good. There's no reason to only eat ...

How do you plan on handling trigger/shoulder buttons? Will you put them on the face as well, or will you go ahead and install the buttons as needed on your N64 and GBA bases?

The whole "poor man's patent" thing is not true. It will not hold up in court, as you didn't publicize your idea, but it is a government proof. Stop acting like you're some official or something. :P That "government proof" means zilch if you want to keep others from using your idea. The "poor man's...

A lot of the information posted above is bogus. Patent laws vary somewhat from country to country, and one has to separately file a patent in each country in which one wishes his idea to be protected. A drawing is not sufficient to secure a patent. A patent application must contain a thorough writte...

I have not read the books in question, so I don't know. You will probably find this article relevant: http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-dyn/A23371-2001Feb18?language=printer In this article, the author discusses these issues a little bit. From reading it, the author sounds a lot more humanist tha...

My PC can't run anything worth buying. It has an intergrated GFX chip Sure it can! There are a ton of great classic graphic adventures out there that will run just fine on your machine. But if you are looking for other fun and/or useful applications: vim (www.vim.org) is a great text editor. It has...

Actually, it's more in the neighborhood of 64,000 grains of rice in a kilogram.

this game is retarded, why not just give them all of the rice now instead and cut out the middleman. If you had read the FAQ then you would know why they can't just "give them all of the rice now." They explain it all right on the site. Use your head for something other than a hat rack. But sure, i...

No, the discussion here is about Demonoid being closed, not about piracy. Demonoid is closed because of copyright infringement, but that doesn't mean it doesn't provide legal freeware and the like. And trust me, we've locked and deleted several threads due to piracy talk before, if this gets out of...

Wow. Mention of the word "marijuana" without discussion of its use is enough to get a thread locked and several posts deleted.

Direct confession and discussion of piracy... not so much.

What the? I've never heard of putting mayo on grilled cheese (maybe because I hate mayo). <snip> No mayo involved (sick crap). I agree wholeheartedly. Mayo is disgusting. But people do all kinds of crazy disgusting stuff. I don't often order grilled cheese in restaurants, but I've had them arrive w...

My favorite sandwiches are plain ol' peanut butter & jelly and grilled cheese. Grilled cheese is pretty good as long as it doesn't have mayonnaise. Peanut Butter and Jelly really is incredible, though. I know I've eaten at least three thousand of them. My consumption has been a little irregular the...

I would be curious to know what inspired this bet. I don't have photos of any food readily available, but I can make a few suggestions. Buying food short-term is almost always more expensive than buying long-term. By that I mean that if you had to go for six months or something then your average wee...

Is this a pot that you adjust regularly or leave at a single setting? If it's one that you don't adjust often, then just measure what value you need with a multimeter. What he said. Also, if you are planning on doing this, make sure that you remove the pot from the pcb/project board/whatever first ...
