Off Topic / So bad it's good.
« on: 04 January, 2011, 03:40:28 AM »
There are two kinds of people in the world.

Those that believe in the entertainment value of terrible films, and those that don't. Those that believe in the concept of "so bad it's good", and those that don't.

In the year 2011 I have finally been able to decide definitively which group I fall into.

If you want to do the same, then follow this link to discover the truth!

NOTE: If you're having trouble with the time limit, just turn OFF your router and turn it back ON again, then pick up where you left off.

General / Last to the party
« on: 21 November, 2010, 03:24:06 PM »
This is a thread for people to confess all the jokes or references in the progs that they didn't get until years later. Ro-jaws and Hammerstein seems to be a popular one, for instance.

For myself, I was recently thumbing through Case-Files 5 and was reading the opening pages of "Judge Death Lives". The tour guide says: "Over here we have the uniform of Judge Hurst, the inventor of the flesh disintegrator. He will be remembered." Up until that point I had never realised the glaringly obvious joke that was being made.

So what stuff did you only figure out recently?

Off Topic / Question for Irish broadband users
« on: 21 October, 2010, 05:21:58 PM »
As you may know, Eircom recently dumped a load of its users onto their new "Next Generation Broadband" service, which basically means that we all get saddled with a 30GB download/upload limit. If we go over this limit we get a substantially inflated phone bill for our temerity.

So I guess my question is: Are there any better service providers out there? From what I've heard, other providers are having trouble even providing stable connections or workable speed levels. Of course this is mainly Eircom's fault too, since they own most of the lines, but this is little comfort.

If there are no better providers out there, what, in your opinion, is the "best" package available from Eircom? Are we stuck with our current payment plan?

Yours sincerely,


Games / Minecraft free - for now.
« on: 20 September, 2010, 09:34:37 PM »
The strange, but apparently very addictive game Minecraft is currently free to play.

What can I say? I'm a sucker for games with lots of digging in them.


And here's a bit of gameplay. Narrated by some German guy!

Off Topic / And lots of fun with Google Translate!
« on: 12 September, 2010, 03:51:20 AM »
Google will be converted into one language or another great program to be translated. But here's the one language like English (translation) In addition, you can experience the transformation it again.

However, the results of these changes can be so very interesting, I think we could maybe make a thread about posting our garbled English all the amusement of all relevant or.

But this idea is how to determine how much distance it your all, I guess, not quite.

Off Topic / Cosplay
« on: 30 August, 2010, 12:59:57 AM »
There's been a bunch of great cosplay pictures on the "underware" thread, but I figured something as important as dressing up as someone from a TV show/game deserved it's own thread. So here it is!

This thread is for the best, and worst cosplay pictures on the internet. I'll get the ball rolling with these beauties.

Off Topic / Necroposting.
« on: 16 August, 2010, 07:49:42 PM »
There has been a big upsurge in necroposting lately. The most recent offence resurrected an unloved and unwanted thread from nine years ago! I don't want to name the person responsible, but it was Cosh.

A disturbing trend I've noticed recently is boarders posting on a movie/game/etc. thread from several years ago, and then saying something like "I saw this recently, it was quite good". Usually a few other people will turn up and make a few half-hearted posts before the thread mercifully dies once more.

I'm sure you agree that necroposting is the most serious problem facing the board today. However, I have a few suggestions as to how we can combat this menace.

1) Chastise people who necropost.

2) Start a campaign of harassment against people who necropost.

3) Ban people who necropost.

4) Hire a hitman to locate and kill people who necropost.

I'm a reasonable man. If someone wants to resurrect a popular and beloved thread, then they should do so. If, however, they want to bring back a seven year old post about the Judge Dredd movie, to inform us that, yes, they've seen it and golly wasn't Stallone a poor choice for Dredd?, then there should be consequences.

Off Topic / Shooting stars tonight.
« on: 12 August, 2010, 09:44:39 PM »
It's that time of year again! Cast your eyes to the sky, and you may see a shooting star, courtesy of the Perseid meteor shower.

Maybe this is my lucky year.

Off Topic / It's my birthday.
« on: 12 June, 2010, 01:22:52 AM »
Today is my birthday. I am 27 years old. As current emperor of the board I am declaring today to be a national holiday!

Katooie day is traditionally celebrated by imbibing rum and/or cider and buying scratchcards. It is also traditional to watch a grotesquely violent film (preferably from the 80s), and listen to some awesome music (preferably from the 80s).

Speaking of scratchcards, I got 4 scratch cards and won on three, for a total of €13 profit! I've a feeling it's going to be a lucky year!


Off Topic / Eurovision 2010.

This is Jared Katooie, reporting live from Jared's room. Throughout the evening I'll be providing you with constant updates from the event of the year, the 55th Eurovision Song Contest!

Currently the presenters are explaining the new voting rules - you can now cast your vote at any point during the show!

And now they've announced the start of the show!

Good luck Ireland!
