    Oh... well that's not so bad... people already do that in English on a regular basis. For a second there I was almost concerned.

    Foil fire cooking is great. Used to do it whenever we went camping, and didnt feel like bringing a grill and/or propane

    Shoulda got droid.

    Does what you tell it - without questioning your motives and then deciding it knows better and doing something entirely different while pretending to humour your choice.

    You didn’t tell me no, you told me it was addictive. I’m big into addictions.

    I.... am gunna attempt some bagwork soon *hushed gasps surround the air*... it has been a VERY long time, so might attempt 20 minutes total, go between 30-50% power of techniques, not sure how to gauge that but see how we go!

    May work on punches for 5 minutes, do some kata for a few minutes, kicks for 5, kata, freestyle anything goes for the rest.

    I can't emphasise the going light enough! I would trust that you'd all tell me if I was going too hard!

    OKAY! So I MAY have upped the intensity to 74.37%, so sue me!!!

    That was alot of fun, even wore my old Kyokushin gi :). Ended up 45 minutes total including a thorough warmup, but it's cool the little drills and combos you can come up with on the spot!

    Katas I did in between were Pinan Yon, Gekisai Dai, Gekisai Sho, and Yantsu. Have not worked on these in ages!

    There's nothing like getting some whole body movement goin... my SI joint is still irritated, but it held up okay, didn't go full force, but it's hard not to up the intensity when you're doing freestyle bagwork and you see you've got a minute left amiriiight ;D

    My GRRRRRR face!

    押忍!

    Don't change my falsehood to the truth just make yourself look good :D

    My wife bought me the ding dang phone, I had to finally get use to it, she was messing with it all weekend and telling me how much she hates it....I don't like the whole freaking idea of being connected 24/7

    I feel like we have all been connected for a decade or better but most of us did/do not want to accept that. I am a very open book so I have never worried much about being hacked and such. Kinda like the "blood from a turnip" analogy. :)
    I do use two encryption services and McAfee and do Not use online accounting or financial tools. Just seem like an invitation to get robbed to me. Hell, I even still use snail mail for certain document services.

    I could be connected 24/7 with my magical smartphone, but I found a brilliant way to avoid that.

    I put the phone down and go do something else.

    I do however use online services wherever possible - have been for nigh on 20 years now.


    :rolleyes:

    Quite possibly the absolute worst insecurity 'solution' available anywhere.

    Doesn't really do what it's supposed to and behaves like a virus itself. Clogs up and slows down everything.

    I get offered the premium version for free every month or so - I wouldn't take that offer even if they paid me.

    Well, I would, but it'd get stuck on a win98 box and ignored.

    Good job you don't do online finances and such.


    Please don't tell me you use photobucket too...

    Oh, and does McAfee still do that wonderfully entertaining trick of flagging the websites of any other a/v product (or review sites thereof) as potentially threatening and blocking access to them?

    Not worried about that stuff, I'm in IT security

    It is the expectation of being connected 24/7 when your office issues you a device....it also appears to be the expectation of Mrs Xue since I have a phone.

    The phone stays as far away from me as possible when I am home....it is the office issued phone that is the main problem with the 24/7 connection....but there is a magical way to avoid that too...forget the charge it..... however you have to be willing to deal with the consequences when you get to the office....however..... they have gotten use to me and generally start such conversations with.... did you forget to charge the phone again.....my response is..yes...and then the situation is explained and we all go about our business.

    However with the personal phone.... Mrs Xue and the oldest Xue both feel that if you have the phone, they should be able to contact you when the mood hits them.... not so much an issue when everyone is in the lower 48...is a big issue when folks go to China.

    Nothing wrong with it.

    If it was still the 90s ;)

    The photos you uploaded are extremely unlikely to be the same size or compression factor as what you uploaded - unless you pay.

    You can't link to your photos on stuff like forums etc. unless you pay.

    You get like 80% of the screen filled with ads - unless you pay.


    Even if you do pay, the chances of having animated pornography adverts automatically install malware is very very high (at one point it was running about 90% of visits had an attempt)


    If you really want the pics back, get yourself a 'live' Linux distro (boot and run from USB or cd), download them to an external storage device like a usb stick and run a real scan on them (avast and malwarebytes as a minimum) before putting them on a computer you care about.

    When I worked in IT:

    Them: we tried to call you last night

    Me: I know, I ignored you. :finger:

    Them: :wideyed:


    And a week after I quit I bumped into my ex manager in town one day and they still offered me my job back on increased pay...

    yeah, I heard they made some weird changes since I last logged into Photobucket

    I don't think I uploaded a lot of original pictures from my end, but then again, the computers I had then are long dead...sooooooo
