    this reminded me of a show I saw with a guy who was addicted to running marathons. He'd run all the time, including ultra marathons. He was married once, the wife left him due to the running, and his girlfriend he was seeing during the episode left him as well...
    Thankfully the guy I'm mentioning isn't that obsessed!

    Random... But yeah, I can now stream at 720p, hardware wise. I could probably even stream at 1080p... Problem is... my internet sucks and can only comfortably handle 360p... So yeah...

    Nice. I used to own a dell until the motherboard gave out and I just got a barebone kit and did it myself. Best decision I ever made. I'm still running XP and it is smooth. I bought the Windows 8 upgrade for $40 during the MSFT offer and when I get around to tricking my PC out (blu ray player + burner, affordable touch screen monitor), then I will make the plunge. Otherwise, it runs great. Funny enough, the dell monitor has lasted a lot longer than threat of the PC...

    Nice. I just need a touch-screen, but apparently they're not worth the money right now (very low PPI rates, a 19" touch-screen for 400 will have something like 72PPI, if I want one that'll have a 1440x900 resolution akin to my desktop monitor at 19", I'm looking at about 2'000 I think!). So yeah, just keeping my monitors as non-touch for now. I plan to get twin 16:9 monitors though, as opposed to one 4:3 and the other 16:10...

    Sweet! When I can afford it, I'm getting one. League of Legends, Guild Wars 2, and RuneScape, on a touchscreen? OH YES!

    Just keep an eye on the prices - When I first looked at them they were 440 then they had dropped to 390 a couple of weeks later - I paid 368 and now its 359 - they must drop the price to clear the stock - its a beautiful monitor though.

    Nice. I will keep my monitor non touch screen for a while longer. I plan to run both my cable TV and PC through one screen, that's what has me waiting for the touch options to get better and cheaper...

    I miss the days I loved gaming. I still do in my heart, just when I'm really doing it, it's not as much fun as it used to be... The most perfect games for my taste (e.g. Bioshock Infinite) I can play for around 30 minutes, then I'm bored :(

    I want to spend some money for a new computer, likely a Macbook Pro for professional reasons (I'll have to see when I've started my new job, most likely they'll give me a Mac, and in this case I want to have a similar device), but for this price I could get such a nice gaming machine...

    A real ice cream man, driving around in his little van, playing music and the kids run towards it from the entire neighborhood?

    This I know only from movies, there's no such thing where I live :(

    There was one swinging by my work lately. I haven't seen it for a couple of days. The people running for it weren't children though!

    I haven't had a soft serve in years. When I was younger it was the best thing. Now I'm a bit more snobby about it. Partly due to the fact I can't have it that often.
