It's been 9 years since I have been on here. Wonder who all is still on here that I used to talk to or if anyone even remembers Legallyblonde.
I vaguely remember the name, mostly because we stopped posting around the same time.
Cobia123 checking in. Been here since 2002 I believe. Hard to believe I signed up 13 years ago.
Still remember the day I registered. Heard about this place from a friend and decided to give it a shot.
I absolutely loved it here when I started. Used to post every day...but life eventually takes it's toll.
ADC used to be very active, but with the advancement in technology it's definitely not what it used to be.
I still like to come by once in awhile just to see if things have changed at all, but I rarely post anymore.
I was never a super popular member on here, but it's still nice to see some familiar names still posting.
Robinson Cano signed with the Mariners.
10 years/$240MM. Absolutely putrid move for both parties. Seattle is getting the best second baseman in the game, but let's keep in mind...the guy is already over 30. They will get about 5 good years out of him before the contract becomes an albatross. Safeco field is also an infamously terrible park for hitters. His numbers will drop a noticeable amount. As for Cano? He goes from the bright lights of NY (and all its endorsements) to the relatively obscure Seattle fan base. He left a perennial title contender for a team that won't be going anywhere for a real long while. In a few years, this will be seen as one of the worst signings in professional sports history... and I am not even biased. It's that bad.
MLB votes to eliminate home-plate collisions
Thanks you idiots for more of the wussification on america
Yep, my thoughts exactly. Just another rule to "protect" player safety. Home plate collisions have been a part of the game for years. Now they suddenly want to abolish it over...what? Maybe 2 or 3 injuries a year? Please...
Russell Wilson has been drafted by the Rangers.
Yea, this happened. Though, considering how his NFL career is going, I would say there is approximately a 0.00% chance he touches a baseball.
How awful. I was extremely saddened by the news. For any of those unaware, Paul wasn't actually driving the car... he was the passenger. He was also leaving a kid's charity event. By all account's he was a great guy. Will be missed.
Recently finished RAGE on PS3.
Pretty good game. Rather short.
Currently playing Dead Space 2 on PS3.
I recently finished the second season and I must say, I am impressed.
I was cautious going in, mostly due to the fact that I typically enjoy the grittier shows that can be seen on premium channels like HBO, Showtime etc...
A & E was surprisingly effective however in their presentation of this show. It has much more gore and violence than I would have thought possible on a network.
Considering I don't have cable, I'll keep watching... as long as it appears on Netflix.
According to the settings at the bottom, it's called "TNI Classic"
I however, will forever remember the forum look as "ADC"
I'm glad it's still an option for members to select. If I'm not mistaken, at one point during the update a while ago, it was not.
I've always found the retro look appealing. The red & black was (is) different from most other message boards.
Could not be happier that the Patriots have been eliminated.
I went to school in Baltimore for 4 years, have now lived and worked in San Francisco for 2.
I don't really mind who wins the Championship really. I like both teams.
Over 10 years now.
It truly amazes me.
Feels like just yesterday my friend from middle school was showing me this forum.
This has become a fascinating thing to me.
I have been following this video on youtube for a while.
I first watched it when there were around 3 million views. I thought it was really funny, gave it a good laugh etc..
Next thing I know, this guy is appearing on various news stations, being featured on youtube and talked about all over the internet.
Suddenly, it now has over 27 million views.
According to multiple sources, the creator has reportedly made around $27,000 off the video...
In one week alone, this guy has earned a 5 digit figure....an income that many people earn over the course of 1 entire year.
It's amazing, really.
And to think, all of this money came about over a box that looks like a car seat.
I'm not a very recognized contributor to this board, but I have been a member for over 10 years now. As you can probably imagine, many things have changed since I first started posting here.
After all, I created this account when I was 14. I am now 24 going on 25.
I completed middle school and high school
Finished college with a BS in Psychology.
Moved permanently from NY to San Francisco (for no other reason than to start fresh in an entirely different place)
Got an apartment, new car etc... started building my resume with a job at a local car rental agency.
There is a great sense of nostalgia when I look back at my past here. It supplies a chronicle of my early life. Very interesting.
Oh what a joyous occasion it was...
Let me preface my whole situation with this:
On December 15th, the very last day of my entire college career , I was robbed blind of everything.
I arrived home at nearly 9PM after my last final, only to find that I was nearly robbed of everything that ever meant anything to me. A thief had somehow ventured into my apartment (after breaking the steel lock) and stole:
- $800 TV
- $800 Laptop
- $500 PS3
- $400 Guitar
- $1500 in Video Games
The police, and the apartment complex owners were virtually useless. My items were never recovered.
In total, $4000+ in monetary value was gone. Apart from furniture, I was left with nothing.
What I got for Christmas:
- A new TV
- A new PS3
- 5 or so new Video Games
In total, the thief (who if I ever caught, I would hang and stab with a rusty serrated blade)ruined both my Christmas, and a few other parts of my life which I will not get into right now.
While I am appreciative of the replacements, I cannot help but to "ring them up as damages", according to what had been taken. It is a really unfortunate situation, but after all...
I lived in Baltimore
Makes me sick.
I wouldn't necessarily call myself a veteran, as my post count would indicate otherwise. I did however join these forums a very long time ago. I simply haven't been on the last 4 years because of college. I am finally about to graduate, so maybe I will be on more. Who knows.
Though Blu-Ray has infinitely superior quality, I still feel as though it is too expensive (Both the disks and the player itself). Ive still been buying DVD's consistently. In fact, I'm pretty sure I've only bought two Blu-Ray disks since the technology came out. And, only because I own a PS3.
HAHAHAHAHA one of the best night's of my life.
There is justice in this world
Barry Bonds got indicted today.
So.... Im pretty sure thats the end of him.
As much as I hate the Red Sox, they did indeed outplay the Rockies....bad. Pretty much the most boring World Series that I can remember. I didn't really have high expectations for it in the first place though.
Magneto can control metal and use it to his advantage, but all Thor would have to do is get one good hammer smash into Magneto's face, and everything would be settled.
I said "Not Sure". I didn't say "No" mainly because these two events are in fact, a sport, just like any other sport that ESPN shows on their channel. Other more popular sports should generally be shown the majority of the time.
I went into the Lets Talk Movies & TV section before to see that "The Wire" has filled up the entire room with television news and what not. Obviously, up to date news isnt necessarily a bad thing, but I find it somewhat irritating when the ENTIRE board is filled up with such a thing. I know some people probably enjoy, and maybe even prefer having news constantly posted on the page, but I enjoyed having talk between members about our OWN topics, not some constant news flash pieces that covered the whole page. Ive noticed this occurring on many other boards as well, I just thought I would bring it up just in case anyone else felt the same way.
Just my opinion on something, no harm done.
Lately I have gotten into reading "Fables", part of the Vertigo comic series. I had my doubt's about the series but eventually began to love it. If you haven't ever heard of these comics I suggest you go check them out. The Fables series generally focuses on fable characters (Snow White, Three little pigs, The Wolf, etc...) and put's them in real world situations in current day New York City. It may sound ridiculous to some, but it is actually an entirely fresh idea full of surprises. If your interested in seeing Fable characters gone wrong, than this is definately for you. The series has won a bunch of Eisner Awards.
I didn't even know THAT was a fashion style?
Sorta like suspenders on a speedo? @smilepunch@
Hahaha it was actually a "Wild Office Party" night at one of the school's nearby.
Hey, i'm looking to buy some comic's online but im not sure what places are best, or at least better than others. Any information on some good websites would be helpful, thanks.
in General Discussion
I'm still here...barely. I miss the golden age of ADC. I joined in 2002, had to check my profile page to verify the date.
What's there to say? It's been 15 years (that seems almost unbelievable).
Life happens. If the board were still super active I would post more often than twice a year.
