Doublepost because my craptop is misbehaving. My screen randomly blinks off and goes black for a second or two, then returns with an error message stating
"Display driver igfx stopped responding and has recovered"

Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

I wish man. I get the same problem with mine only it's an AMD Driver. Then after a random period of time it crashes on me.

update: I reinstalled the driver. the computer fought me through the reinstall process, with the inherent firewall as well as spybot S&D spazzing the whole time. Then the screen randomly went into a lower resolution and into clone mode, before reverting back to my normal setting. finally, it's done.
so, I restart my computer, and the damn thing is locked in at 1280X800- and cloned on both monitors
so I turn off the notebook monitor. (this is using the inherent intel driver software shit)
the craptop's monitor turns off, but it doesn't solve my initial problem- I'm still locked in at 1280x800 max
then I go into the control panel control.
suddenly, although "extend my monitor" is turned off, my laptop screen is being extended.
so I check the "extend my monitor" box, and hit apply.
nothing changes...
...except now I have the option to go to a higher resolution on my monitor.
so now it goes to 1280x1024
unchecked extend to other monitor, and it's back to normal.
no random flickers yet.
Idk wtf happened.
fuck you, craptop.
fuck you.


Not sure how long this will last, because with the amount of random wtfery I get from this thing it's bound to fuck something up.


Like how "Default setting EXE MFC application" would crash on boot every time for like, 2 years. stopped recently, for no reason.

So uh, I haven't been on here in like, two months. Sup guys. I told Q I'd be back on the 15th of February and ended up taking a month longer for that. Doesn't help that I check my Facebook about twice a month.

I don't think I'll be trying to catch up on the RP again, obviously. Q and I had a cool idea set up but by now it's probably way too late, and I'm generally just either too busy or not passionate enough about it anymore to bother writing when I could be doing other things I enjoy slightly more.

I'm not dead though, and I still love you guys.

Oh hey, welcome back Omicron! It's been a while. I was wondering if you'd forgot Razz.

You might find that the RP isn't as far ahead as you think: You could easily jump in. I'll give you a brief summary, then see how you feel.

:< I'd still like you to stay in the game Omi. You have an excellent writing style and from Q told me I really liked what your plans were. It wouldn't be too hard to jump back into the game; right now we're in the middle of a fight, which is always a good chance to appear again Razz

I'll send you a PM about what's been happening since your last appearance.

Welcome back as well~

He said there wasn't going to be a question on active filters.

Finals, smash?

On my end I'm working on job applications. I don't want to be stuck working KMart again over the summer. ...not again, not now Razz I've come to realize that the monotony of basic cashier/stock jobs drives me slightly crazy, which is a problem. So I'm pushing hard for camp counselor/internship/research positions.

Yep, done now, and they were terrible.

Oh, yeah, I also got a job yesterday working on campus in The Avenue. Specifically at the Chick-Fil-A in there. Place your bets how long it takes me to burn myself with the fryer.

Can I bet that it happened during the interview?

As for me, I can't seem to find a job. I figure I'll try Home Depot again (For the Dalek/TARDIS materials) before papering the town with applications until something sticks.

I just checked our newest registered member 'renlas' and he sent himself a visitor message for mail order Russian brides... Do people that make spam bots really think that kind of stuff actually works?!

I'm in the same boat btw Doctor. Can't get anywhere with apps or resumes. Never even get to the interview portion of searches.

I got a job picking up trash for the lawyer who works on the floor above my dad's office.

It pays pretty well though, but i'm not going to be able to maintain it after the school year lets out.

I didn't even have an interview. It's campus dining, so it's easier to get than an off campus job. I just submitted an app and asked to speak with a couple managers and hen I got a call at the end of the quarter when they were doing new hiring.

Just watched Transformers 3 with Rifftrax and I have a few thoughts:

- There is nothing Micheal Bay holds sacred (Including Wrath of Kahn)
- There were no less than 260 explosions (I counted)
- Sam's girlfriends are waaaaaay too good for him
- Sam's transformer friends are too good form him too
- Really, Michael Bay, not content on just ruining Transformers, decided to crap on the last 50 years as a whole
- The Dark Side of the Moon is not a permenant location
- Real parents aren't that clueless
- No one cares about the marine characters so why do they keep showing up?
- Buildings don't work that way
- John Tuturro is shameless
- So is John Malcovich
- LEONARD NEMOY WHYYY?!

Aaaand that about sums it up. 4 stars (Out of 50)

Actually, I'll need to double-check this, but the dark side of the moon may be constant.

It's constant in relation to Earth, not the sun. Otherwise how do solar eclipses work? Razz

So, in other news, I may be going to New York next year. It's Mother's Day today so I went round to visit my Mum for Sunday dinner. On the side she had a travel brochure for the US/Canada and I asked her about it. Since it's her 50th birthday next year she's planning on going there for a short trip with my stepdad and was telling me how my little brother has been saying that he wants to come along. I mentioned that I've always wanted to go to New York as well, so...looks like a family holiday is going to happen! Q, TD, Minby, if you're interested...

Slightly gutted though, when we were discussing it Mum made it sound like it was going to happen this year and I got all excited, then found out an hour later she actually meant next year, bah. Well, if we win the lottery in the meantime...

Next year I will have rid myself of my overbearing mother, so the only thing that would prevent me from doing this would be my college schedule. Unless you come in summer. XD

Dark side of the moon is meant less to reference the actual, physical "dark" side of the moon as it is the side that's opposite the Earth. When astronauts set foot there, they're considered to have gone dark: No radio signals can be made/received from the dark side of the moon. In this respect, yes, it is constant.

And Raya, I'm in :3. When next year would this be happening?

I suspect it may be around Christmas since my mother has always really wanted to see the Rockefeller Centre christmas tree. Hence me being even more gutted, that's about 19 months away, gah. But still, it's pretty exciting. I've always wanted to go to America (I've never been outside of Europe- the Canary Islands don't count), plus I get to meet up with you awesome people.

If you like I'll bring some British chocolate with me Wink

Yes, you can imagine my disappointment when I found out it was next year rather than this year like I thought. Ah well, better to happen then than never at all.

@Relm: It'd be brilliant if you could come along too! This could turn into quite a big forum meetup, actually. Heh, I might be stealing Fed's crown of 'most forumers met IRL'.

@DF: Get saving, you have a year and a half Razz
