It looks like he's playing FTL on the laptop (3rd panel) and things are not going well.


Lets face it, does anything ever go well in FTL?

Old ZD/Tech was actually useful, on one occasion. Woke up at home, for a change, ( `98-`00 count me `out of town' - DB migrations from `rusted iron'), some TTV report on `boom' - video of some bike messenger, at a payphone, calling his broker to buy a `thousand'? (some ungodly quantity) shares of Iomega. I broke out in a cold sweat. Only time I've ever gotten `lucky' (got a leg up on that debacle - though I ran screaming like a little girl a little too early to win big).

I remember browsing channels in 99 on Dish Network and spotting the ZDTV Zip File. Internet Tonight was amazing when Google/AltaVista/Yahoo/whatever hadn't begun crawling everything 3 times daily.

TSS was great but it did start to slide a bit before the G4 merger but not a hell of a lot. Used to catch La Porte's podcasts but I just can't manage to pay attention long enough to some of the rants to be bothered anymore.

Dumb-Ass-Monkey: Remember that time Cat Schwartz accidentally showed her tits to the internet?

/nsfw, duh


I liked the Call for Help segment they did on how to avoid it happening to you. She took it in stride.

Hah, I didn't notice that before. Yes it does.


It looks eerily familiar to my FTL playing experience.

FatalDischarge: The Screen Savers is how I found out about Fark. Damn you, Screen Savers!!!


Martin Sargent mentioned Fark when he hosted Unscrewed. Who knows if I would have ever made it here without that little plug.

Great_Milenko: I wish someone (Spike, maybe) would start running the Japanese Ninja Warrior shows again.


God I love that show all the crazy antics of Japanese game show while at the same time being a serious challenge for event the fittest among us.

DerpHerder: The sad thing is History channel and Discovery are going the same way with all this reality crap. You've got to watch history 2 to even see modern marvels.


I miss old History channel and their specials every holiday. God I want "In search of history" back on the air with some GD documentaries like the Russian one they did.

06Wahoo: I'm going to miss Ninja Warrior.


Who is this "Miss Ninja Warrior"? Can I have her address too?
