    my cat (well, familys cat) was a comedic retard... she'd climb up the back of your shirt/jacket and hang there thinking you couldnt see her, or hide in short grass (with her tail sticking straight up) and follow you around...

    she also knew how to play fetch, if she was in the mood for it. we'd hide her toys in various places and she'd find it and bring it back - if we tied it to a tree branch, she'd break the branch off the tree and bring that :S

    I love cats! i wished my wife would let me get a cat. we had a BAD experience with our first (and only) cat and now she doesn't want to even think about getting another one.

    Damn sorry to hear about you losing a pal, POS.

    If we ever get another cat, it will never sleep with us. We made that mistake with this one. I don't mind it (that much,) but we have to wash our comforter twice a week because of hair.

    i went down there around the same time this year on vacation and to see some old friends and my mom(she lives down there) I was down there for ~1 week and while i was down there i took some girl out that was working as a cashier. She kept looking at me the whole time i was there so i was like ah f*** it and asked her out. we had a nice little time on the town(i would love to go back and see her again) I miss living down there i lived in that area for ~4years and plan to go the UT down there.

    my old cat would play fetch with me sometimes.Some how it knew how to bark :wtf: i gave it away because i didn't have time to play with him as much as he wanted and i had 2 rabbits at the time(have 0 for now) also had conditioning for track and football.(not doing football now,replaced it with wrestling but still doing track)
    my 2 cats i have now don't do anything buy eat,sleep and shit on the floor :banghead:
    I loved having my "fury friend" sleep in the bed with me the hair wasn't that bad because she is a short hair and i kept her brushed and clean. it was cute waking up to her sniffing my face or pushing on me with her nose.
    as for the cats they won't sleep in the bed. there both long hair and shed like crazy.

    Yea thats another thing! i told my wife if we do finally get another cat, it will be a short hair! the first one we got was a Persian and when we bought it, it was warm and cuddly but when we got it home it turned into DEMON CAT! after about 3 days of attacks and shit! i had to get two oven mitts to put it back into the pet carrier and take it back to get a refund! OMG it scared my wife shitless! She would randomly get attacked while doing house work! now shes scared of cats

    I had to take half of a chipmonk (literally) away from ours today, and boot the cat outside to finish eating it. Damn cats will kill anything that walks, crawls or flies. A rabbit may be a more songbird friendly pet to consider.

    @POS - Wrestling, you must love punishment. Not from competitors, the practices. What I remember most about wrestling (Little Guy through High School) is wearing Glad trash bags under sweats and running until I could make weight. That sport is hard ass work. Good luck!

    a rabbit is by far a better pet if you want sweet and cuddly and won't kill everything that moves.But you have to train them right from the start. If you want a rabbit that will let you hold it alot then get it used to being held right away and reward it with some kind of treat.
    one of my cats killed a bird last time it got out. my cats are strictly indoor but sometimes they slip out when the door is open. Also used to have a mouse that we couldn't catch but a few days after getting the cats one of them is standing in the middle of the living room floor in front of the tv throwing it around like a toy.(problem solved :laugh:)


    BTW sorry if my post aren't making sence or there is worse spelling/grammar errors then normal i am "under the influence"

    I also have a pet rabbit. He is a 6 yo mini rex mix named Bently. He is litter trained as well. We don't have a cage, but a giant pen so he has a little room to run. We let him out on occasion, but he is a chewer, so he can't be out all the time. Loads of personality for a bunny.

    Most of those aren't so great to have around children. They can be a bit on the agressive side. Depends on the mix amounts.

    mine wasn't a chewer so she had a somewhat smaller cage just to sleep in and use the litter box, but most of the time she slept with me when there wasn't a girl taking her spot.
    w00t! :roll:
    sorry for the of topic

    too much volts needed. it runs cool with a silent fan at 3.6, i'm just seeing how cool i can get 3.8... why go 5C hotter for 5% faster?

    Because it's 5% faster, of course. Why take an hour to do an encode, when you can take 57 minutes?

    heh, my encoding is limited elsewhere, it doesnt even max out four cores, let alone all 6 with some of the stuff i do. i blame nero, since its what i've been using recently. (MKV to DVD stuff)

    I use Ripbot. I thought my 955 might be slow at 3.8 core and 2.8 cpu-nb but it isn't any faster or slower than my i7 920 even though both end up at 100% load. The 955 might be a little faster but definitely not slower. The 920 doesn't seem to care if I run 3.33ghz or 4.1ghz as it weirdly seems to take the same time for both even though it lingers around 100% load all the time.

    I don't quite understand it myself but figure around 3hrs for a bluray to mkv encode isn't bad.

    i normally use handbrake, but it doesnt convert to DVD, which is what i've been doing mostly these days.

    as for the 920, try disabling hyperthreading... HT can actually hurt some encoding apps, not help.
