Re: The couch thread

It is important to recognize that the work of muscular contraction that is done when the back is set in extension between reps, although not measurable in foot-pounds, is work nonetheless. The pulling together of the z-lines in the sarcomeres of the erector spinae and the holding of this position o...

Re: The couch thread

What these tards are doing is basically investing $1000 of their money into a start-up insurance company that is bound to fail. It's not a wise investment at all. On top of that, they'll have to pay a monthly insurance premium, which few of the affiliates even know about at this point. I wonder if ...

If you have a lot of add-ons, especially old deprecated add-ons, you might want to uninstall them. Tools – Add-ons, scroll down the list, there should be disable/uninstall buttons.

Re: Graphic novel suggestions

Thanks for all of the suggestions. I just ordered Ronin and a couple of Punisher books. The public library has Alan Moore stuff I haven't read so I'll stop by there as well. Pinky, how did you like those Punisher books? Garth Ennis just wrapped up his run on the series, with the last part of his fi...

Re: Firefox 3

By the way, if you're new to Firefox, one thing to understand is that there is the core application, and then there a bunch of add-ons (extensions) that provide extra functionality. Most of those are geek-fun, not useful to anyone without a pocket protector; but there's a few extensions I use every ...

Firefox 3

If you were waiting for the first security patch before giving Firefox 3 a try, as I was, it was released last night around 6:15p Eastern. So Firefox 3.0.1 is here. I like it. It seems a bit faster. Nothing I can definitely put my finger on, just a sense of pages loading quickly and smoothly. The up...

Re: Decent Fiction in Audiobook format?

Not fiction, but the audiobook of Eiger Dreams is read by the author. Same guy who wrote Into Thin Air. This is a collection of essays on mountaineering. Lots of interesting topics: profiles of the guys who fly rescue planes on Denali, the free-climber John Gill, etc. It's very, very good. I haven't...

You know that radio voice, that does things like ads for monster truck rallies etc? Way over the top voice?

Re: Graphic novel suggestions

So no Alan Moore beyond Watchmen? So you've got to read League of Extraordinary Gentlemen 1 and 2, which is the only two worth reading. Another really excellent series by Alan Moore is TopTen: http://www.amazon.com/Top-Ten-Book-Alan-Moore/dp/1563896680 http://www.amazon.com/Top-Ten-Book-Alan-Moore/...
