Aspy had a great idea here, so I'm going to restart it. Please put all petty bickering in the other good news thread :) :) :)

This one's only for good news.... Hey, maybe we could have a "Petty Bickering" thread, lol, if you build it, they will come :) :) :)

I don't have any good news though, lol...let's see...

ATI finally fixed all their radeon and all in wonder drivers...all that incredible amount of shit that we've been fucking with for years to try to get it all working, now just plain works out of the box. Even hardware mpeg crunching and dual display driving without 100 restarts to avoid resolution conflicts, displays really now can run in different resolutions.

Lol, might not seem like much if you're not running Radeon, but if you are, go get the new drivers cuz you're world is fixed!

I got hired at an upscale country club a few weeks ago as a waiter. i have been a sauce cook for years and years but have never waited tables. i have been bugging the chefs since day one to get in there.

Well Today the Chef asked me to come in an hour early Sat. and do a plate up so he can see how good I can cook.

I'm think about doing a Beef Burgundy, a fruit plate, a soup and a desert plate with cre'me en glace and a lattice design of chocolate syrup.

I asked the other chef about weather it was supposed to be a secret or can I tell him what i want to do. He said i can write out a menu and he will help me carry it out. Cool just like on Iron Chef!


*edit. picture was too big

I'm extremely pleased with the Keeley modded Tube Screamer I recently bought. Having a tone like Scott Henderson ain't a bad thing at all, no sirree. :)

UK scientists have found a way to extract hydrogen from confectionary waste – a process that could lead to food factories using their own product waste to generate energy for the manufacturing process. (Food Ingredients First)
