  • Maynard James Keenan in Vile?

    I watched Vile and when I checked the Wiki page it listed him as Special Agent Ford.... except I never saw him and there was no one by that name. Did I miss something? It's just weird to see him listed and have articles that mention he's in it, when it seems pretty obvious he actually wasn't

  • Rankings of US Hockey Leagues?

    There was a kid I was in school with until about 9th grade who moved away to play hockey. First he played 2 years in the USHL, then moved on to the NAHL, and is now playing in the NCAA Division III. I've always kinda looked to see how he was doing a few times during each season, and I was wondering if he is moving up or down as he goes on. To me it seems more like a regression, but I'm not totally sure.

    And how many people get drafted out of DIII hockey? I would assume it's not too many...

  • Picture not formatted correctly on some channels (DTV)?

    So we have a 22" HDTV hooked up to an SD DVR. Most channels like Nickelodeon show correctly. They are in 4:3 and everything looks fine. Then for HD broadcasts on ESPN and the like, they are letterboxed in order to keep the whole picture on the screen, which is also fine. But for a couple channels, like the NHL Network and some local channels they aren't letterboxed therefore cutting both sides off and making the picture looked zoomed. It's incredibly hard to watch sports like hockey and football with this.

    I guess I just want to know if there is anything at all I can do to fix it. I've just assumed the whole time that it's how the network broadcasts it, meaning that if they broadcast in 16:9 without adding letterboxing for those without HD and it gets pushed through the 4:3 DVR then I'm just SOL. But I figure maybe there is some way around it.....

    And of course the only reason I ask is because we can't upgrade to HD, because of the extra cost for the service and having to purchase the HD DVRs. Any help would be good.

  • Random folders popping up on C drive?

    Please tell me someone has an idea of what's causing this.... I noticed one day that a bunch of random folders appeared on my hard drive, so I deleted them and then different ones with the same sort of folder name started popping up again. Every time I delete them, more with similar names come back.

    They all contain one .file file and I can't even begin to figure where they are coming from.

    Here is the C drive with the folders: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/6/capturecost...

    And an example of the files that appear in them (all have different names though): http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/163/captureay...

  • Weird thing with OCLF?

    So I installed One-Click Lagfix because my Captivate lags like hell. After I installed it, it still lagged exactly the same, but now I had like no memory for apps. So I uninstalled it to get the memory back and now my phone runs perfectly.....

    Anyone have any idea why this happened? It's great that it did, because now I have all my space back and the phone doesn't lag, instead of one or the other.

  • Odds of my USPS shipment coming in?

    Class: First-Class Mail®

    Service(s): Delivery Confirmation™

    Status: Processed through Sort Facility

    Your item was processed through and left our RALEIGH, NC 27676 facility on March 06, 2011 at 4:32 am. The item is currently in transit to the destination. Information, if available, is updated periodically throughout the day. Please check again later.

    I live about an hour and a half from Raleigh. I'm assuming I'll get this today, right? Also, delivery confirmation doesn't mean I have to sign does it? I'm not going to be awake more than likely considering I just got off of work and I'm not planning on going to sleep for at least another hour or two.

  • Mileage on a used car?

    I just want to know about how prices fluctuate when it comes to the mileage they have.

    Say 2 cars are exactly the same in every way, but one has 60k miles and one has 50k miles, how much more expensive would the car with 50k be? I guess what I'm asking is, for every 10k miles less, about how much more do they add to the price?

    You don't have to be incredibly specific so don't say you need to know what car it is or what prices they are to begin with, I just need approximations and opinions from people who have an idea.

    Thank you.

  • Interest Rate on Auto Loan?

    Ok, so I know you can't tell me with certainty, but I just want an opinion. Just take the details and let me know what you think.

    If I were to take a car loan for about 14 to 17k for 60 to 72 months, I am 20 and have no credit, but it would be cosigned by my grandfather who has a credit score of 690. The down payment would be in the ballpark of $2500 to $3500.

    Estimates would be great. I don't particularly want to call around to banks and all that right now since I won't be actually doing this for a couple of months, I would just like to get all the figures worked out before hand. I already know what I'll pay for insurance and I've been checking the finance calculators online to see about what my car payment will be, but the interest rate makes it very too much to just guess.

    I guessed it would be ~10-12%. Does that sound right? I know good credit nets you around 7. Thanks.

  • Some questions about the 350z?

    I'm pretty much set on the 350z. It looks like a great car. Anyway:

    - Any specific defects with them? Or any specific problems with certain years? Most of the ones in my price range are '03s and '04s.

    - What is under the flap just above the radio if the car doesn't have a navigation system? All of the pics on Autotrader have it closed. The only time they are opened is when it's has a nav system.

    - How many miles should I consider to be too much? I'm not looking to spend more than 13k, so I have to suck it up and get something with a decent bit of mileage on it, but how much is too much?

    - I know it's a sports car, but how much crap can you carry around in yours?

    - Should I stay away from any Z with aftermarket parts on them, or should I just let the mechanic I get determine whether the parts will be ok?

    - Do you like the interior? From the pictures it looks kind of bland...

    Thanks in advance and anything else would be great. Oh, and I'm probably buying out of state so any tips on that would help, but that's not as important as the above.

  • Favorite Guided By Voices album?

    My number 1 dream in life is to figure out how to play all the GBV albums in my head on repeat, loud enough that it blocks out every single sound on Earth. Imagine it... it would be badass and you know it. Oh, and Mag Earwhig!. That would be my favorite.

    BQ: Did you imagine it? Be serious. It would kinda be like a movie, where a song takes over all other sounds during a particular scene, but all the time.

    BQ2: Favorite early-mid 90's alternative rock band (includes bands that started in the 80's and continued through the 90's.)

  • I had a folder of torrents, but now it's empty?

    So, I click on the folder and it says it's empty, but if I go into uTorrent and click a torrent I recently downloaded, it opens a subfolder and the files are there. Then I go back one and it says no files. How is this possible?

    I'm seeding the files and the path goes through a folder that supposedly doesn't exist. I never deleted it and it's not hidden....

  • Want a credit card, but have no credit history?

    I'm 19 and have no credit. I've been looking to get a credit card, but have been denied at least 5 times. I tried Capital One, Chase, Wells Fargo, Orchard Bank, and HSBC. Not one of them will give me one, except Orchard Bank offered me a Secured Card which I do not want.

    Are there any cards out there that I have a good chance of getting? I can't believe I can't get a card anywhere. I've been told my entire life that it's so easy to get one and that's why people get in crazy debt. But obviously it's not as easy as they said it was.

    Also, I can't believe that a company won't give you a card because you have no credit, when that is one of the few ways to build credit. It makes no sense.

    So, I'm 19, employed, and have a checking and savings account.... Any cards you know of that I could try?

  • Battery problem with Samsung Captivate?

    Ok, so I've had the Captivate for about 4 days now, and I keep having to charge it after about 5 hours. My battery usage says:

    Display- 74% 3hr 49m

    Voice Calls- 10% 7m

    Cell Standby- 6% 7h 17m

    Android System- 3% 24m

    Browser- 3% 22m

    Idle- 3h 28m

    Does this look right? I've looked at other peoples battery usage and not one of them had their display as more than 45%. Also, I'm concerned that 7 minutes of voice calls wasted 10% of the battery....

    I don't really have anything running in the background. I have Gmail updating once an hour, buzzbox once every 2 hours, and that's it. I also have ATK killing apps safely every time the screens shuts off. The screen brightness is only set to about 25%, I'm not running a live wallpaper, and I haven't had wifi or bluetooth on at all.

    Even if this is the way it should be, it is definitely not long enough. I end up having to take my charger everywhere because I'm afraid the phone will die and I won't have it.

    Should I try to return it for a replacement Captivate? Will they do that? Or should I have them send me a replacement battery... I'm not really sure what to do since this is the first phone I've suspected of not working correctly.

    I also read something about a restocking fee?

  • HD streaming on Netflix?

    I know sometime last year I started noticing that none of the movies I was watching on Netflix said they were in HD. Before that there were quite a bit that were. I wasn't sure if I was just on a string of movies that weren't ever offered in HD, until I went to one I was sure was before, and it no longer was.

    So, are there no longer any streaming movies available in HD, or did they just remove the logo from them?

  • How will Xbox 360 games look on a 1080p monitor?

    I was about to buy a 24" pc monitor that has a 1920x1080 resolution... then I saw something about the Xbox upscaling the image and it being blurry and not as clear as on a 720p screen.

    Is this true? If it is I'll just find another 1680x1050 monitor and let the Xbox letterbox it.

    So, will games look as good or better on a 1920x1080 screen than they do on a 1680x1050?
