Ready for the Super Bowl?

As a born and raised Philadelphian, I'm pulling for the Eagles to win it all next Sunday. I remember pulling for them here on this forum 13 years ago... This has to be the time, right? :o Of course, if the Eagles win the Super Bowl, the post-game rioting might be a lot worse than when the Phillies w...

Thanks Denyer, I did find one but it seems to be ran from a JP company that couldn't grasp the idea of Kickstarter. -_-

However, I found one known as Stonecold Skywarp, Inc, who was quite helpful in the matter. ;)

Looking for a UK Proxy Bid / Pay Service

Hello Folks,

Anyone know of a UK Proxy Bid / Pay Service? Basically looking for a way to get an item shipped from the UK to the US from a Kickstarter that won't ship the item to the US.

Thanks!

Not being a fan of online RPGs, skipped FFXI and FFXIV. I figure those games can get addictive in a bad way. If I had to give some thoughts on Final Fantasy, my preference would be FF7, 6, 9, and X. The remastered version of X is also pretty amazing. Otherwise, check out Chrono Trigger, which is jus...

Picked up Final Fantasy X/X-2 Remastered. Great game that I never recall finishing back in the day. Make me want to go back and play FF6, 7, and Chrono Trigger again.

I'm still hoping NISMOJOE makes a reappearance. He comes and goes on AIM every once in awhile. I think he's off in the gaming world more these days, especially when he seems to be top gamer when you search his handle. I miss playing endless hours of Starcraft. :-X

Hi all. ^_^

You should sign up for Crunchyroll's service - http://www.crunchyroll.com . They have a free two subscription but it's well worth signing up for a year which is just 60$. You get unlimited streaming of older and just released anime. I think they offer a lot of stuff without being a member but they a...

I remember when I was about 13, there was a time when a lot of kids in my neighborhood were friends. Some of them went off to do a lot of bad things - picking fights, getting into some drugs, stealing, etc. It was like a slippery slope over a period of time. Eventually, opting to stay away from thes...

The Masterforce dvd set has been out in Australia for years, why is it taking so long for it to come out in the US? If Shout! Factory is using the same source material as the Australian DVDs then it might be worth skipping. I imported the Madman Australia release a few years back and the video qual...

Thanks. I'm not too worried about the property search. I'm actually looking through foreclosed property. Seen a good number of quality houses going from 23k to 100 k in my area.

Credit Scores

Because I am planning to buy a home within a year, I took advantage of free credit report and paid for a credit score. It states my score is 834. Now, reviewing my credit report, I have no missed payments or any other blemishes. Shouldn't the score be higher or should I view it as a score for a pers...

I took psychology in high school, and I remember a project requiring us to keep a log of our dreams and then analyzing them.
