Well I actually bought it last night. First off they told me I wasn't the owner of my paypal account so needed to provide id and credit card info. After messaging them on twitter I was told it was a error. If I paid via credit card then sure I guess but that wasn't how I did it.
128 lives is the max you can have in Super Mario Bros 1. Seemed decent and well I couldn't be stuffed thinking of another name. Was just thinking 127 but yeah bit late now lol. Maybe when its up for renewal.

Yeah well until I can find something better it will be the first template I found. Which is well doggy related. I've been going though changing the weird text out of it but having next to no sleep lately kinda is delaying things. Not that I'm in a hurry though. I really have no idea what I am doing.

So this was my yesterday. Playing on my computer and heard a hello from outside. Ignore it and another hello ignore that one too. Another hello this time my dog barks. I thought ok fine I'll go what in cookies it is.
See a guy standing at the gate holding a clipboard. I go ok so what is this. I bet its a sales person. (Anything in quotes was what I was thinking.) penguincat: "The logo says AGL but there are other logo's on it. I wonder if they are from all of them. Or wants you to think they rep all of them. (which is common scam.)" Guy: Hello are you Allen penguincat: no. "no Allen here at all. I wonder if its a scam like the last girl who claimed my account was full of billing errors." Guy: Are you the home owner penguincat: no. Guy: Who has the power bill in their name? penguincat: I do. Guy: So you are Allen? penguincat: No. "I do know what my name is most of the time. There are times when I forget it though." Guy: So I'm here to update customers on the new electricity and natural gas because it was put up in price recently. Do you have natural gas? penguincat: yes "Not only am basically I standing next to my gas meter but it was 3 months ago the price went up and it was announced 5+ months ago what it was going to be." Guy: So AGL can offer you 7% discounts on each. Can you go get your government discount card. penguincat: Go away!!! ..walks off in the other direction.. "do they even ask if people have a government discount ? or is it better to assume? or am I on a list?" Guy: Excuse me? penguincat: ..Turns around.. I'll call the police if you don't go. ..Goes back to walking to the stairs.. Guy: Excuse me??? penguincat: .. Turns around again.. I have a no door knockers sticker If you don't go I'll call the police. "why did I leave my iPhone inside." Guy: So where is this sticker? (in a real smug sort of way. Making out he has every right to be there If I don't have it.) penguincat: ..I walk back to gate and point at the sticker.. See right there. "Are people just blind or stupid or don't care? If you can see the beware of dog sign you can see the sticker." Guy: Oh sorry and runs up the street.
Note: I am able to ask them to leave even with out displaying the sticker. Then call the police if he/she refuses.
This is what the guy was did was against the law 1. Ignored the sticker even though its in clear sight. 2. Never said who he was from or his name nor showed photo id. 3. Refused to leave when I asked him too. I do admit it wasn't all that nicely but it still counted.

The idea behind the stickers is great but people will question them and ignore them making them next to useless. They get paid for a sale so will do pretty well anything to get it. Sticker its worth the chance. I believe I'm meant to put in a complaint about the other one not leaving. But since I don't know what company he is from it kinda makes it hard. I guess he saw the sticker so that's why he never said or showed who he was. Makes sense.
I'm pretty sure If I asked the chick that came around last time to show her boobs that she would have just to get the sale. (pretty much on full display anyway.) Going on her facebook pictures she sure liked people playing with them. Maybe she needed to be drunk though. That was a common thing too. (she told me to look her up on facebook so I did.) I had the sticker in the same place then. Girl with boobs in your face hard to say no.
Shop 1: These guys should have a decent one for sure. Walk in wonder around shop end up in the media player part of the shop. Shop dude walks up to me. I ask any capture cards? He ummed and said we have 1 or 2. Walks over to them (5 feet behind me.) Picks one up and asks me what I'm looking for. I say something to plug in video game consoles to broadcast them online. Says the one in his hand will do it. I look on the box recommended for windows xp. So I'm like a bit ancient I bet its related to the one I already have somewhere which had a bucket load of driver problems. I say really after a usb one as I'm not really meant to open my computer due to the onsite warranty I have. He picks up the usb one and says its for antenna only. So I say Thank you I'll keep looking.
Shop 2. They should have it they sell a heap of computer stuff. Walk in wonder around. Guy eventually walks up to me and asks what I'm after. oh we don't have that try shop 1. I just came from there. Ok try the computer shop at the other end of the building. I think yeah and pay 40% more and have to order it in. Fine I'll try them.
Shop 3. Walk in Shop people as bored as anything. I get a can I help you? I want a capture card. Points me to a antenna card. I say I want one for video game purposes. Oh we can order one in its hdmi and its 270$. I said HDMI isn't helpful he said what video consoles do i have. I say playstation He replies with thats hdmi. I guess he thought I meant ps3. I said the older ones. He said yeah HDMI. Ok well thanks and I walk out.
I found one I liked the look of online for 230$ but people who wrote reviews were rah'ing about it. I think they were complaining about it not having full HD. Considering full hd needs like 3 or 4mbit upload. My 1.1mbit kinda doesn't make lack of HD video a reason not to buy it. So I'll read it again and look tomorrow.

Some of the JD capture cards aren't true HD, they'll capture at 480p, not 720p or 1080p, so that's probably what they complained about. If you can order off eBay, I'd recommend getting the Dazzle DVC 100, if you are planning on streaming through AV and/or in non HD. They should be pretty cheap in price too. If you are looking for an HD streaming capture card, there is a Hauppage HD PVR 1212 that has component and composite input that allows you to stream true HD content, and it runs close to $200US on eBay. We might be picking up that exact HD capture card at some point.
Nice! If you do pick that up let us know, I'm curious how well it works. I know that one does handle Component and Composite connections, so you can stream non-HD. Also, I'm not sure if 1.1 mbit will be able to handle HD streaming anyway like you said.

Ok its time to rant.
2 nights ago I was bored and decided to see if my old cell network had upgraded. Said it was getting one a little while ago. Took my new sim out and put the old one in. Safe to say no difference. Just as completely useless as before. When putting my new sim in I dropped it and got all the gold part of the sim covered in finger prints. I clean it off looks good enough. Put it in. Turn phone back on. Why is my signal lower then normal 2 or 3 bars. When its normally 4 or 5? I check to see if its on the back up 3g network. Main network is 850mhz the other is 2.1ghz. Nope its on the main network. What in cookies did I do? Why in cookies did I take the sim card out for?
Now for how much I hate mico sim cards. They are the most stupidest thing to try and clean. Basically you are stuck putting your fingers on the gold part if you like it or not as there isn't anywhere really to hang on to.
