That is one of the best museums I've seen...and it's been 30 years! I'd love to get out there one of these days and check it out with you.

A couple more updates from Facebook: April 19th - They were unable to do the surgery today. They can't seem to find where this infection is coming from so until they get that squared away he won't be going into surgery. He's scheduled for surgery on his arm on Wed and pelvis on Fri, although contin...

So the surgery he underwent today was more so a cleanup to tend to all the fieldwork surgery, no new developments that they had to work on. He is scheduled to come in Tuesday. My dad is already there waiting for him, anxious to see and speak with him. Maybe tomorrow I'll have some direct quotes to ...

Flying the A-10, man that has to be a blast, although it may not be "fun" while you're getting shot at. But if you're getting shot at, that's the one you want to be in! :wink: Last year, when Cha Chi took me to Luke on Friday, he told me his time in the Hog was the most fun he's ever had! He flew i...

Gunner, I gotta call BS on that running Crysis at that resolution maxed out at anything over 10 FPS. :lol: I'm curious what your avg FPS in the benchmark is - run it without AA/AF on Very High for 3 loops DX10 and 64-Bit. I'll try it when I get home and we'll compare - I'm curious, your system does...

At that resolution I get a slideshow occasionally, but very briefly and I just love that triple screen! These numb...

That looks awesome. I think I'm going to go out and buy another HD and install Vista and BC2, since my current install seems to be broken and won't let me install it. I finally broke down & got it yesterday...Fry's Electronics still had Limited Edition copies. :D Gotta say I've never had such a har...
