      Yea Avast is just not compatible with Windows 8 right now. I seen an article on it, written just on the 5th, and a lot of people have this problem. It has something to do with the Windows 8 loading process the Avast program dumps it's files in the wrong folder screwing with the load up.

      Even a re-install of Avast after a fresh Windows in-stall has the problem continue. There is a way to fix it, but right now I am just willing to run with the windows defender. The patch doesn...

      Got that and read that too bayone!! How true is this from book The Life and Times of Johnny Unitas?

      Oh yea I remember why I had to upgrade and (why I shouldn't have)why one day I'll have to upgrade again darn it, because

      my old guitar and bass lesson instruction cd's and dvd's wouldn't load in vista because they were

      98 and now sooner are later something won't load in something else and I'll have to buy something else and on and on. OK now why didn't I think about that way of making money Huhhh???

      Sweet picture FX!!! Brian was right. You do have a nice beard. It gives you bravado like a wise & well traveled scholar. Plus, you can stroke your chin & beard to simulate critical thinking & deep, profound thoughts. I do it all the time myself. HA! HA!

      Really is great. The Fylers season has been lackluster so far, but they are hanging in there. Only two points out of the playoffs. Last night's game made me believe they can do it. Voracek stepping up for Giroux. Then getting beat down immediately with two goals only to comeback to tie the game with 4 seconds left. Then to finish off the win was amazing.

      Cool memory regarding Linkin Park there. So sorry to hear about losing 2 of your closest friends in 2008 FX...That must hurt like Hades to this day man...So sorry for your loss...I sincerely mean that FX...When Chi got hurt in the aftermath of your friends accident that must have been devastating...Yes absolutely, leave early, wear seat belts, observe the road rules, & get there in 1 piece. Good advice FX! Chi seemed so easy going...

    3. Fx Stryker

      Fx Stryker

      Truly does hurt, but thanks for the kind words SW. Truly appreciated. To this day I'm still trying to get a bass, and Chi is one of the main reasons. Paul Gray, from Slipknot, was another reason. He sadly passed away in 2010. Only thing we can do is rock on in their memory.

      Yes, another sad passing of a bass brother, for being a long time bassist myself it always touches a Chord to see them move on.

      Conan OBrian is my favorite late night comedian. I love how he always jokingly slams his primary nerd, geeky fanbase who are anything but sophisticated ladies men & casanovas. Geeks & nerds run the world not the supermodel, beautiful people.

      Exactly FX! Conan is a nerd to his core just like you & me buddy! HA! HA! I really liked his moustache & beard look too. He's not a complete failure with beautiful woman though. Just ask actress Jessica Biel...See attached clip. :)

  11. Have you ever wondered who the best division in football was for the past decade? Will the results match the general perception of the toughest division? Will it be the youngest or oldest division? The results may come as a shock. Stay tuned....

      If you are talking about average wins, I'd actually guess the AFC South - unless the last couple of years drove that down. Some whine about the Colts having an easy division, but aside from the Texans that simply wasn't true. The Jags and Titans were often very good for years, while the Colts had the best record in the sport.

    4. MAC

      Well since you stopped at 2010 (didn't notice, duh), then I guess the AFC South for sure.

      Hopefully now Murray can get away from the ridiculous mental block that seems to haunt him at the end of every tournament. Talented player, really lacking in confidence. Has a good record against Federer... except for in Grand Slam finals

      southwest1

      Why would Ben Affleck do this when he is such a good film director with films like "The Town" & "Argo?" Is he trying to better relate to actors & actresses when he directors more motion pictures to get the best performance out of them? Maintaining his street cred in Hollywood? Strange...

    4. southwest1

      southwest1

      Good point Jay! It's like beating a dead horse & then backing up with your car to the finish the job a few more hundred times. Overkill is a very dangerous thing. Let Batman disappear & slumber in darkness & silence for awhile IMO.

      really wow. I predicted SF begin of season, worried when they switched from Smith to Colin, but that worry seems unfounded, I think SF will reach SB.

  16. Heard the strongest argument for greatest WR of all-time. "I get Jerry Rice is widely recognized as the best, but I mean he isn't anything only Jerry Rice. Now Hines Ward is above and beyond the rest. I mean he is HINES WARD. Revolutionized the position." I think they might be a little Steeler biased. Jerry Rice is only Jerry Rice, but Hines Ward is HINES WARD. Fantastic argument.
