Im married, I didnt give up gaming

but the thing is I am not playing hours of games on end anymore, and frankly it doesnt hurt one bit

playing a game here and there is fine, making it your entire life where you take over the living room and never move is not, espcecially when you have bigger and better things to do than get to the next level of jackoff tredmill 3

I agree, I have one that is starting to complain about the battery and its somewhere tween 4 and 5 years, who cares a replacement UPS in the same size cost less than 100 bucks, its about equal to the cost of the battery

frankly with UPS's being fairly cheap until you get into the big boys, its probably better to replace the whole darn thing anyway as 4-5 years of getting nailed by the environment probably has weakened its protection hardware anyway

no, no it wasnt, please read the thread

daylight savings time happens when the days are longest, if the entire reason for it is that poeple dont like driving home in the dark why the hell doesnt it happen during the winter when it gets dark out 4-5 hours earlier than it does in DST?
