Re: Aperture 3 help: Touching up photos to print out in B&W

You can always use a preset to start and make adjustments from there.

It's always nice to know how to do things manually, however.

Also, you can download presets from other users for a wider...

Re: Aperture 3 help: Touching up photos to print out in B&W

Aperture has a number of "presets" that make it relatively easy to convert to b/w.

There is even a live preview to show you the results before you apply them.

I like the higher contrast...

Re: AT&T to impose 150GB Monthly Cap on Internet usage starting in May

Yes - I just checked our usage. We're DSL, though.

Our usage has gone down quite a bit in the last few days after disconnecting the SamKnows router.

Re: AT&T to impose 150GB Monthly Cap on Internet usage starting in May

We've averaged 200 GB per month the last few months.

No pirating movies, no peer/peer, no web servers. Just Netflix and VPN for work once in a while.

And a at&t femtocell because their cell...

Re: New PC will not power up

When troubleshooting, it's always best to start from the basic - just have the stuff hooked up the PC needs to run.

So in this case, strip it to the bare minimum and try to get it to POST. ...

Not really. That's why there are no bookstores here.

All we do is eat cheese and brats and get drunk. No time for anything else.

Re: Coax termination

The compression connectors are much better than the crimp on ones, both in looks and in how well they work.

Re: Border's bankruptcy filing possible next week

It's good the Eau Claire store is staying open then.

At least in the Milwaukee area, you can't throw a stick without hitting a B&N.

Re: Border's bankruptcy filing possible next week

I misread the JSOnline story about it (or they changed their headline later, which has happened before).

All of the Milwaukee area stores are closing (3) and a Madison store (1).

Re: Border's bankruptcy filing possible next week

Wisconsin is left without any Border's (only 4 to start with, all 4 closing).

Sad to see. A lot of employees out of work.

Re: Best Buy Reward Zone "Annualization"

Well that's a real nice e-mail. "Enjoy your day!"

I sent Best Buy a nasty gram last year when they took my 240 points that had posted just days before and they gave me back 500.

Re: Anyones Netflix service starting to suck?

At least in the e-mail I got from Netflix, there was nothing to click on or any information to enter. Just a "sorry" and the bill would be reduced, which it was (a whole 24 cents).

Re: Anyones Netflix service starting to suck?

We got the same e-mail. 2% off of $7.99. Why even bother?

Just send an apology if there was a problem and be done with it (we never noticed any problem, by the way).

Re: Ultimate Electronics to start closing stores February 2011

I've wanted to stop into the Milwaukee store every time I drive past, but I've never drummed up the will to risk life and limb to get into the parking lot.

That location sucks to get in and out of.

Re: Need Advice on External Hard Drive

Same here.

As a bonus, the WD MyBook drive would not honor OSX's energy saver settings and spun down every minute or so.

It looked nice sitting on the desk, though.

Re: Netflix on DSL?

What device do you watch Netflix on? We have 6016 kbps DSL through at&t and it takes less than 10 seconds to buffer an HD stream through xbox.

ESPN 360 through the xbox is another story, however.

Re: Help - Please!

Cricket service is fine. Cricket customer support is absolutely fucking horrible.

There's a special place in hell for the fuckwads who work at Cricket customer service.
