  1. PK, it makes me very happy to see you are still posting in this thread. I had the urge to check out NJ Devs when the Sens played the Devils the other day, wondering if PK was still on the Scott Stevens bandwagon (that is not the right phase but brain not working). I am pleased to see that you are
  2. Well it is good to see some folks are still around.
  3. That is pretty sad, considering how long this board has been together. But I guess fighting negative nancies just gets old after a while. I have to admit, I haven't kept myself up to date on the Devils' trials, the Sens have kept me busy on that front well enough. I have just missed the community that used to exist here, which I guess just doesn't anymore.
  4. Hi folks. Long time no post....or log in to forum. Working for a living sucks, gets in the way of watching hockey and generally enjoying life. Big thank you to DM for sorting out my sign-in issues. So how's life?
  5. For Sammy: My bf's planes: My planes: My latest addition, my birthday pressie:
  6. Well howdy doody folks! Seems an age since I last said hi. And hello fellow weather geek, Zubie#8. Thunderstorms are frickin awesome indeed. Weird thing, since moving to Australian, seen way more hail in 3 years than I did in my 7 years in Albany! Including golf to tennis ball size stuff thst beat the coral out of my car while I was eating Christmas dinner. The car is now also a fully fledged weather geek. So I have to correct you on one point there. Anticyclonic tornadoes (ones that spin clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere) are rare, but not impossible. In fact an F4 anticyclonic tornadotore through Sunnyvale-Los Altos, CA in 1998. And anticyclonic storms (mesoscale convective systems) do form as the right hand book-end vortices on bow echoes, although they usually don't develop to the extent the left hand cyclonic one will, ie. the one often associated with non-showered tornadoes. But I am no tornado chasing meteorologist, so check my facts! And god damn this was challenging to do on my phone.
  7. Hostelling International - NYC and you can get a bed for $38/night. Gets rave reviews on trip advisor.
  8. Have you considered going the hostel route?
  9. So I decided to go the uninstall Firefox and reinstall route. Seems to be ok for the mo. Thanks for your assistance though folks.
  10. Hmmm, I also do not seem to be able to create a log file from HiJack This. Once I have done the scan I can save the log file, a dialogue opens asking where to save it. When it tries to open the log file it notepad, I get an error saying it cannot find the log file and do I want to create a new one. If I click yes or no, I just get a blank Notepad.
  11. I ran a Malwarebytes' Anti-malware FULL scan and everything came up clean.
  12. Thanks guys I will try your suggestions. OK when I run HiJack This is says it does not have write access to the hosts file and (I am running Vista) says I should select run as administrator. When I right click on the Hijack this Icon and try to run as administrator, this option is greyed out, yet this is MY computer and I am the administrator. Does Hijack This need access to the hosts file?
  13. OK I think I need some help with my computer. For a while when I got to google search, sometimes (not always) when I click the link to a result I get redirected to the google homepage. I did a little searching about it and I may have some spyware or something (not sure the proper term). I have run a Spybot Search and destroy and cleaned that up. Now I can do a HiJack This log but have no idea what to do with the log once I have it. Can anyone here help me?
  14. Happy B'day Rowdy! Obviously I may be a little early with that, not 100% sure....Facebook and NJDevs are both on Aussie time.
  15. I will attempt to remember to update this thread when I have some free time at the weekend.
  16. I'd only just got used to it referring to the 90s.

    TV Show

    Wilfred is actually Australian. Haven't seen the US version but the original is as odd as all hell. I've caught it on a few occasions and I and confused and mesmerised by it. My "must watch" list is fairly short, a bit obscure and mainly downloaded: Deadliest Catch Time Team South Park Doctor Who Being Human (orig UK version) Peep Show EDIT: I forgot Mad Men, how could I forget that! Oh and Flying Wild Alaska and Ice Pilots.
  19. Aaah, finally finished school after 25 years. Finally back home after sitting on an A380 for about 20 hours (3 hours on the tarmac at LAX). And Sammy, if you haven't made it to LAX, you should go. Spent most of the 4 days there at the end of runway 24, which happens to be conveniently located next to an "in n out burger", which seemed VERY popular. Have some really good plane porn.
  20. Thanks. And PK, yeah, no probs on that front, he has loads of holiday save as I've been working non-stop for about the last 9 months.
  21. I technically started my PhD in 2005, but didn't actually start the project that ended up being my PhD topic until May 2008, so all in all not too bad timing on the actual project. Yeah, it is cold here. Not COLD, but cold. Aussie's don't seem to understand the concept of insulation. Yeah miserable grey winter to come. Hence the desire to head up north where the sun sometimes shines.
  22. Dunno, nothing fixed. Would like to head up to the Gold Coast, maybe Darwin too, just to get some sunshine. Working through summer is not fun.
  23. Yes they do. Hence issues at the trade deadline when a player from a Canadian team (usually a European player) gets traded to a US team. Sometimes takes a few days for everything to get sorted out. Luckily though there is a fast-track visa for pro sports people.
  24. Have a 6-month position at the Bureau of Meteorology here helping to get some of their research products into operational use, to do with climate/seasonal forecasting in the south pacific. Potential for something more after that, more related to my area of specialism.
