I could never leave this place, not entirely -- it's like an old town you used to live in, fallen off the map but chugging along all the same.

Yep -- there are way too many memories for me here. This place will likely never leave my bookmarks tabs. Even as the number of daily posts dwindles, I'm sure there will still be a few folks who drop by the old inn.

In Rainbow Islands, on the Goal In screen at the end of each stage, and at each boss fight, Bubby can reach the bottom o the screen by way of the top if he casts his rainbows high enough and jumps off of them properly.

I wish CashCrazed would make crazy things happen to the html on the Forums like the old days!

Wow, that's a lot to ask for under $500! You might do best to save up in order to get what you really want. Since you're so specific, I would chat it up with some of the local music store owners. They get tons of stuff that comes through their stores, and they might be able to flag down some sweet deals if you're patient. You can certainly stand to relearn on that Ovation and that Fender that you have. Also, if you find a guitar without the pickups for which you're looking, you can always get the guitar and change the pickups later. Since you've got practice guitars right now, however, I'd simply keep saving and wait until the situation presents itself.

Myself, I'm an acoustic player, so I don't know much about electrics. I currently play a Taylor 214ce, a Mitchell Mandolin, and a Cordoba TM-CE Ukulele. I used to own an Ibanez Artcore semi-hollow, but I traded her in for a pretty decent Electric-Acoustic Epiphone 12-string. I used to fool around on my buddy's Strat, but I just could never get into it. I'm not much of a soloist; I've got a much more "singer-songwriter" feel.  So take my advice for what it's worth -- not much.

I know that you didn't ask for a Telecaster, but this has always been the one electric that I would like to get. I think this is a reasonable price, even if it only has two humbuckers. There's actually a pretty large selection of well-priced teles on Amazon.

It's good to see that you are so concerned about tone color. I think it's very important to have good pickups whose sound resonates with you (pun intended). Again, I think the smartest thing that yo can do is look around in the local music stores where you live. There's always a deal to be had (especially with bargaining chips like that old Santa Rosa that you already have). If you could even get $100 for that guitar (and I have no idea what it might be worth), you could potentially buy up to one of those guitars that's just out of your budget.

Whenever I buy an instrument, I'm always sure to do my homework (which you've already done), but I'm also sure to look around in order to get the best possible deal.

Keep me posted with what you choose to do!

As to your other two goals:
1) Prepare well! The futures of young chemists hang in the balance.
2) I'm a marathoner -- if you're looking for fitness tips, PM me! I'm always happy to help.

The days before avatars on the Fungi Forums... those were the good old days!

As it happens, my Latin nerve has always twitched at the name Fungi Forums... I want so badly for it to be the Fungi Fora... Or at least the Funguses Forums (to keep the bad Latin consistent.)

If it's any consolation, someone will probably be sad about it when facebook groups or whatever are also dying.

When Facebook anything goes away, I'll likely by leaping for joy rather than wallowing in melancholy

You'll find that this forum is very active. Especially the Mario board, Game Help board, and Site Discussion boards!

It's rather remarkable that the FF is as alive today as it is. Another testament to the fine community here!

Yes, yes! Please tell him to drop in.

It'd be nice to have something of a "reunion" from the early 2000s here at the FF.


Some of us old guys are still hanging around, although I'm more of a lurker these days than anything. Hope all is well with you! Sounds like you're living a great life.

Holy bump, Batman.

But anyway, I thought it should be noted that this was the first time in my entire life that I've been called a Liberal anything. 2.6333...

I like your use of the present tense. I believe that this could be a scene in a larger work (maybe even of fiction). Well done!

I really tried to get into Twitch plays Pokemon, but I just couldn't seem to get beyond all of the pause buffering. It didn't make for fun watching. I suppose if you were one of the folks who was trying to strategize and maximize inputs, then it could be somewhat fun. But I've found that watching it is something of a chore!

I agree, and the man is spot on. Most of the stuff that bears any resemblance to the stuff from the 80s is coming out of Sweden these days.
