I am very saddened to hear this news, and I had no idea Pengy was going through all these issues. The testimonies here say it all - he was fair, level-headed and fun as hell. To me, he was an incredible mentor, teammate and friend. Like Apoc, my best memories of Pengy were late night UT sessions whi...

If UT could be played on a browser, I'd come back :)

And with today's scalable computing power, bandwidth speeds, and technologies like WebGL, it's totally possible!

That's the point - not everyone is so clear-headed and the greedy mortgage brokers simply took advantage of that.

Software Development/QA could be almost WFH jobs. I know several people in my company that WFH because they live too far, and they come in say once a week.
Idea is to find a company with flexible times to begin with...then maybe request to WFH (due to familial or other reasons)

Iron man was good!
I've never read the comics so I didn't know what was in store.

The CGI was a bit over the top but realllly cool.
The movie itself was well paced, and there was some good snappy dialogue, thanks to Robert Downey Jr.
Jeff Bridges also made an interesting villain.

Memory Prices

I'm upgrading a friend's computer.
His mobo supports only DDR1 and I look up the prices for DDR memory and it's often more expensive than DDR2.

Is this a sort of sick marketing strategy? Because DDR memory is probably not manufactured anymore?
