  1. Maybe I should learn French to double the amount of posts I can make in a day

      I think you'd need to learn to stop/slow time in order to double your post count per day ;)

  2. Anyone here ever have problems with MDG computers?

    1. jedimaas

      jedimaas

      That was definitely the same problem my dad had: It wasnt the whole thing, or even one big thing, it was a series of little things all going. Its like they built the computer with a solid processor and then attached lower quality components after that. A lot of companies (dell, hp etc) do this, but not to the same extent - at least in my experience.

      Im not sure what that means (using the same questions for 1/8 of an assignment) but IMHO saying "everyone else is doing it" is no excuse for breaking a rule. If you cheated, you cheated, what others did is irrelevant, you got caught - which sucks, but is life.

      Sorry about your car. I had to retire mine last week for good ;(

  7. NHL to players: "It's okay to intentionally put your shoulder in front of someone's head as long as it happens behind the play."

    1. jedimaas

      jedimaas

      Incorrect, Shawn.

      The correct statement by the nhl is:

      "Its ok to intentionally put your shoulder in front of someone's head as long as he's a third liner and not a star player."

  8. some pot head started a fire today in the bathroom. so lame

    1. jedimaas

      jedimaas

      i went into our bathroom yesterday & someone had...well made a mess all over the seat (my office shares a common bathroom with a couple of other businesses).

      I then noticed a still-sweating coke sitting by the sink. So of course I had to shake the hell out of it, knowing that whoever had left it had also just made this huge mess (there were very few people in the building at this point in the day).

      Saw the culprit with a big coke-stain on his shirt later on...

  9. Are Montreal And Vancouver being cospired against by the league because the Stanley Cup market in the US is bigger?

    1. jedimaas

      jedimaas

      No conspiracy. The refs have handed out almost no penalties. Neither the Habs or the Nucks are losing because of reffing.

      not so much obscure but ive always liked the unsung heroes. I have a corson sweater and sometimes wanted a "bonk" one (but thats more cuz I like saying "bonk") bonk Bonk BONK

  15. You guys should really check out the new tampa jerseys <_<

    1. jedimaas

      jedimaas

      problem is though, first rule of design - good design at least - is legibility - ergo, all the simple,clean "classic" looks. It takes something brilliant to be legible & different all at once & by and large thats not what we're seeing - at least not in this market - right now.

      That said, at least the new incarnation of the bolts logo has a much better attnention to detail on the text - better kerning, spacing and overall finesse - as well as just simplifying the 'bolt' vs. the very heavyhanded original "Shadowed" version.

      Give it time. Its no 'classic' like the old whale, but its not hideous like many others have been ;)

      I was talking about this earlier on N11s status: in the end it looks very much like the old logo...but slightly more refined.

      I am not sure what firm has worked on this, but they are definitely in a predicament. I recently was hired to make a very kitschy (read: hokey) logo look more "updated" and let me tell you it would be much easier to just do the damned thing over again. The problem is that so much $$$ goes into marketing these things that they must remain similar

  18. New Lightning logo and jersey for next season its interesting.

    1. jedimaas

      jedimaas

      Reminds me of the coca cola rebrand from a while back. 1 year, 85 different designs, $1m budget to have...essentially the same logo. :P

      That said, this one is definitely more refined and less 'heavy handed' than the old one. The original logo always looked like an art school student or even non-designer slapped it together. Poor font choice, almost illegible in some cases - the "shadow" was heavy handed and lacked finesse etc. As the years went by it was refi...

      meh, it happens. better to work out the kinks this time of year - while we're still in a playoff position and losing games dont mean you're done for the year.

  20. Horrible performance by Canada at the juniors. These fools should be ashamed of themselves for the rest of their lives!

    1. jedimaas

      jedimaas

      FIRST of all: Melissa Hollingsworth said that about HERSELF. What you've just done there is changed the context and therefore completely misquoted her.

      Second, she was 30 years old when she "let the country down" - not 18 or 19 years old like these kids.

      And finally not surprisingly, most rational & reasonable Canadians were quick to say "Melissa, no you didnt"

      We lost. Big deal. Get over it. Its hockey - not life.

      The guy is more volatile than an active volcano, no way MAF should even be close to the ASG.

  23. What's the best spyware, antivirus (whatever you want to call it) out there?

    1. jedimaas

      jedimaas

      Depends what you're looking for. For me, I believe Avast is the best available - I used to use paid-anti virus for years but found them to be absolute resource hogs on any machine that wasnt top of the line/cutting edge.

      These days I have Avast installed on all my machines - the free version on my 3 machines at home, and the paid version on my 5 business PCs. My macs, still have no antivirus to this day.

  24. I just ran into a girl I dated in highschool...its been a long time since i saw her. At the time she was the "it" girl - head cheerleader, prom queen etc. Just a beautiful person inside and out. Well, she still is beautiful on the inside but - and i am NOT exaggerating - she looks like Jack Black with a wig now. Wow.

    1. jedimaas

      Sorry Jack! :) You're not terrible looking for a man...but for a woman... :P
