    Post a pic of yourself

    Edit: Redliner my friend, I think it very much was. He quoted my post, and I know he's usually a sarcastic type of poster. Plus, this isn't the first time I've been made of fun because of my eyes on FinalGear. Seriously, I'm never coming here again. Not because my feelings are hurt, looking...

    Post a pic of yourself

    I guess it would be my fault for posting my picture here and expecting some Eurofag piece of crap to not have fun at my expense. Why say anything if you can't be even remotely decent about it? For your information, this is what a pair of eyes look after over a dozen eye operations starting when...

    Random Thoughts....

    I was on here about maybe ten days ago talking about my eye problems. Since a few of your cared enough to wish me well, I thought I'd post an update since I'm feeling better today for the first time since it all started. It took another trip to the ER and some other stuff, but it seems like my...

    Post a pic of yourself

    Chels and Victoria have elevated this thread to levels it should never have risen to, so allow me to bring things back down to reality with a pic of myself.

    Random Thoughts....

    Thanks, I hope so too. I have a history of glaucoma (in addition to other eye stuff) which in short is elevated fluid pressure in the eyes. Right now my pressures are more or less normal, but my vision is still messed up and it might be that there's permanent vision loss since I went off my...

    Random Thoughts....

    Just gotten back from 8 hours at the hospital, seems like after 12 or so years my eye problems have resurfaced. I was sent home with meds and an appointment for Sunday, so don't really know how bad or (relatively) good it is. The worst part is this is most probably due to my own neglect, so...

    The cute thread

    What the hell has become of this place? I just came to share a video, and I see people are even being idiots in the cute thread. For crying out loud, can one visit any corner of these forums these days and not have to wade through some asinine infighting? Congratulations, you have made...

    The Android thread

    Oh yeah? I didn't even know there was a 2.3.4 update, I'm going to look into it tonight. Since getting a data plan I've realized how much battery it kills. It still lasts me a day on the latest 2.3.3 update, but only a turd would complain about added battery life. Ha, me too. I realized...

    Age difference in a relationship

    This thread makes me yearn for the FinalGear of yesteryear. Oh, and this isn't just in reference to the OP but to most of the replies in here.

    Want to sell my oldish desktop, best choices?

    Uh, I wouldn't be so quick to write it off as everyone else. I've had some success with what you have in mind. You will likely not be able to sell it as a package, but I would even try that... you have nothing to lose, just put it on craigslist for a week. I managed to sell a 3-year old Athlon...

    The Android thread

    The GSII has Swype pre-installed, but pretty much anyone can get into the Swype beta program so you can get it on most Android devices pretty easily. Also, I acquired GrooVe IP and now my WiFi tablet is a bona fide cell phone... uh, when there's WiFi nearby that is. :cool:

    Random thoughts.... [Tech Edition]

    To clean my CPU I use a lens/glasses cloth and the ArctiClean kit. Overkill? Definitely... but the $15 that that cost kind of got lost in the entire computer bill. I still wouldn't take anything less than isopropyl alcohol and a lint-free cloth to my CPUs though.

    Food! [The thread that started this section]

    Nothing on No Reservations has made my mouth water as bad as the lahmajoun he had in Istanbul. That whole episode was torture to me. probably because I'm Iranian.

    The Android thread

    I picked up an iPhone 4 from the Apple Store earlier. Looks like I might actually be able to sell it off for basically what the GSII cost me, so it seems things worked out for the best afterall... my preference wouldn't have been to leave Fido or go to Bell anyway. But the more interesting...

    The Post Your Pets Thread

    Oh man, that's so true. I have a queen bed just to myself, and I still often find myself about to fall off the edge in the middle of the night thanks to the cat.
