3/14/2008 10:06:00 AM   Someone hacked my papayl and managed to get 3 grand out of it.  The good news is that Paypal froze the account and recovered the money.  The bad news is they won't give it back to me!!!   They wanted copies of my bank statements to prove its my account.  The problem is my bank does not put account numbers on bank statements so people can't steal your mail.   Then they wanted my drivers license to prove my address.....Well in Oregon, if you move recently (which I have), instead of giving you a new license, they just give you a sticker with the new address to put on it.  So it looks fake to the people at paypal.   Been on the phone with them forever.  While I was on the phone with them, the person who hacked my account actually logged in and tried to do it again!!!   Such a great start to the morning.  The worst part is the item I won on ebay was a part for my bike, that if i don't get, will take forever to find again.  I contacted the seller to pay him directly, but he wants paypal only....   Word to the wise, check your Paypal accounts for random email addresss that are added to it.  Paypal advised me this happens all the time.
2/6/2008 12:50:16 PM Are there other sources for media and music that I can download to my Iphone other than Itunes?  Unlike most apple stuff, it seems like I can never find anything I want on Itunes.  Will the Iphone store and play Mp3's off of limewire etc?   I'm not a technical guy, so small words would be appreciated.
1/27/2008 6:11:37 AM Woke up early and checked the computer, we got more dumpage!!!!   Headed up now, look for the guy on the banana and the Nitraid outfit if you are going.
1/12/2008 2:57:06 PM One of my friends has taken up boarding and is now looking for his own board.  Anyone got reccomendations for someone this big?  I was thinking of looking for an old Lib Tech Doughboy or something like that.  He wears a size 12 boot as well, nothing too crazy, just a little on the heavy side.
12/29/2007 10:58:16 PM Anyone want to tell me whats the best deal at around a grand to 1400 or less?  I need it for work mainly.  I keep multiple web browsers open all the time, and work on word and excel mainly, so I'm not really pushing the computer hard.  Needs to be easily networkable and one of those fingerprint things for security is probably a great idea.  I saw some HP tablet PC's for around 1100 with a ton of features, but I hear bad things about them. Here are some I'm looking at Dell XPS M1330, huge sale on it and price is down to around 1300 http://www.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/xpsnb_m1330?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&~tab=bundlesta Sony:  http://www.compusa.com/products/product_info.asp?product_code=348100&pfp=dec30 Other ideas?  Things to look for?  Great deals out there?  I don't care if its a refurb or anything like that, as long as i get some kind of warranty.  Needs a DVDRW drive, but I think just about everything has that now.  Decent screen size and long battery.
12/6/2007 9:51:07 AM I can't figure out what I ever did.  First they start actively enforcing the leash law.  Now if you don't carpool with at least three people, you can't park in the main lot on "peak" days!!!!!  Peak days being every weekend or day I could likely go. So I get punished because i get up two hours before everyone else, get there early to enjoy a 20 dollar bagel and can't even get the pleasure of parking within a mile of the stupid resort?
11/26/2007 8:06:55 AM It was a bluebird day on Mt. Hood Meadows.  Went up with two runs open, strangely there was 14 inches of fluff in some places with absolutely no base.  Meaning your board could sink through the powder onto the grass underneath it. I had less of a problem with it than others it seemed.  Otherwise it was packed snow and man-made everywhere, the website says 14 inch base, but I think they are taking that at the deepest points of the fluff, I would guess closer Anyhow, put the girlfriend into a 2 hour lesson and simply dorked around for a while and played around on some bumps, it felt great to finally board again! The good news is after the 2 hour lesson, I was expecting to find my girlfriend at the bar and ready to be told she was never boarding again.  After hunting around the lodge for 40 minutes and not finding her, I finally went back to the buttercup run, and there she was practicing some more on her own!  Looks like she is down to get better.  Meadows has a great deal on multiple lessons, so she is signed up for them now. The word is a bunch of storms headed our way, so hopefully the 14 inch base improves a little.
11/18/2007 4:26:59 AM 600 bucks....Forgot to change my password on esnipe, so my bid didn't go through.  I can't believe I missed out on this one, was waiting all week for it. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320182179732
11/14/2007 6:45:05 AM And the baby doesn't back down!!!! [FLASH WIDTH=319 HEIGHT=262]http://www.youtube.com/v/cE8iD3seNNs[/FLASH]    
11/6/2007 12:16:39 PM In spin cycle class!  Geez, what the heck are those old geezers on?  I was in between a man and a woman, both had to be 50 and they didn't slow down once!!!!!  I damn near puked halfway through it. I really liked how my friends were laughing histerically on the other side of the big glass window.  However, I'm determined to catch up with the old folks soon, gotta get the conditioning down for snowboard season. 
10/28/2007 11:29:50 AM Anyone out there need in on one?  Got some stupid deadbeat friends who dropped at the last second.  Need two people right now, deadline is in a couple of days.  Get your pass for 400 bucks instead of 800 if you don't know what i'm talking about.
10/26/2007 8:19:13 AM Well, looks like the palmer snowfield is up and running, though I'm a little worried its going to be an iceball.  40 degree's during the day, and 19 at night all week with no fresh snow since that storm last week.
10/23/2007 8:35:59 AM Can anyone tell me more about the technology behind the base in the new Rome Design?  Here is a link to the website description http://www.romesnowboards.com/product/tech/board/bases/ It mentions one other snowboard company has it as well, what is it? I am really surprised I haven't seen this mentioned more online.
10/22/2007 11:08:23 PM Anyone want to help out my friend?  He wants a supermodel or Custom x from last year, he's kinda broke so I'm trying to find a deal for him.  He would prefer a new one if its sitting in  a shop somewhere,  just can't find any.   He is about 210 pounds, so I'm thinking the 163 in the supermodel would work best for him.   Any leads?  I wish Sierra still had them.
10/17/2007 4:31:47 PM Not much love on here for this board, anyone else besides me have one?
