Glassed Silver

Glassed Silver

It started when I was a lot younger and wanted to redesign my room from mostly wood to a more modern (call it "appleish") concept with a lot of glass, white, silver and some black.

I liked how it turned out and also during the days when making the plans I came up with the idea to look for a new username to go with my new personal style.

I wanted something unique and I like the physical weirdness of Silver being "glassed".

@Astra.Xtreme:

I see you like Opel / Vauxhall! :p

Excellent, me approves.

We've had Opels for ages and I liked them.

One of them was a former police car! :shiftyninja:

The gun boxes in the front doors were "civilized" to be big store away boxes -> that was quite kicka** as I always adored a bunch of pockets and boxes around me :laugh:

Glassed Silver:mac

Pink Floyd

Back years ago when I was a mod here, there wa another mod named Sanctified :)

At that time, I had the name finalcut as username. And one day, Sanctified decided that I should rename Pink Floyd hehe. I had nothing to say and he decided to change it :D

Well as for my actual username, I guess I don't need to explain the meaning :p

Amarok

Amarok is the name of a gigantic wolf in Inuit mythology.

It is said to hunt down and devour anyone foolish enough to hunt alone at night. Unlike real wolves who hunt in packs, Amarok hunts alone.

Travelar

The first time I had to sign up for something I was playing the game MegaTravellar. The first release of the game, which I had, it had Traveller misspelled as Travellar, which I thought was cool and unique, so I adopted it. Later shortened to Travelar when I had an 8 character limit on Unix systems. it just kind of stuck over the years.

I thought it was "awesome" and "cool" when I was about 10 or so, now I'm stuck with it since everybody knows me by it.

Garyowen006

When I first signed up for dial-up in the mid 90's I had to choose an account name. Monkey Island was on my desk so I chose monkey. Apparently 12 other people has already done that so I got monkey13.

Used it ever since. For a while people thought it was to do with 12 Monkeys but it is just that I'm too lazy to change it and I've never thought up a good replacement.

From your logo, you must be a fan of "The Prisoner".

Do you know who "Number One" is? It is in the series...Episodes 12 and the Last one.

I picked "gary owen" from the Irish drinking song used by the 7th Cav.

I was in a different cav unit.

The "006" is for comical effect. It is actually an inverted "9OO".

      by Usama Jawad

      Sony has recently churned out some good games for its PlayStation 4 console including God of War and Detroit: Become Human. However, it appears that the company has so much new in store for its E3 2018 conference that it has decided to reveal some of its upcoming games ahead of the show.



      In a blog post, Sony has announced that it will be revealing the names of some of its upcoming PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR over the next few days. The detailed schedule is as follows:

We'll likely learn more in the next few days leading up to Sony's E3 Showcase, which is scheduled to begin at Monday, June 11, 6pm PT.

      There has been a sharp increase in the number of cases involving certified used cars that have been previously wrecked or have other substantial problems, says the consumer attorney Daniel Blinn of the Connecticut-based Consumer Law Group.

      Consumers pay a premium for certified used cars because those vehicles typically come with a manufacturer's warranty and are marketed as having been thoroughly checked to ensure the vehicle meets high manufacturer standards. For example, Toyota boasts of a certified pre-owned checklist that includes 160 items. "We check 160 points," the Toyota website says. "All to prove one point: Only the best get to be Toyota Certified Used Vehicles."

      But they may not be the best after all, says Blinn, who points to evidence that some dealers don't conduct the detailed inspections.

      Often dealers automatically certify late-model used cars, which means consumers get stuck paying hundreds of dollars extra for manufacturer warranties even if they don't want them. Consumer Reports is not a big fan of these warranties, believing instead that consumers should bank that extra money and instead buy reliable used vehicles that have been thoroughly checked by a mechanic.

          When buying a used car, don't assume that certification means the vehicle hasn't been wrecked, flooded, or suffered other serious damage, or that it's even been properly inspected.

          Inspect the front and back of the vehicle title. Verify that the mileage statement agrees with the vehicle's odometer and that the title isn't "branded" with "Salvage," "Junk," "Rebuilt," Flood," "Recovered theft," "Lemon law buyback," or similar terms that indicate the car or truck has a troubled past. Also verify that there is no unpaid loan. If the dealer won't let you see the title or doesn't have it, take a pass on that vehicle.

          Expect the dealer to provide a free used-car history report from Carfax or AutoCheck, and then call the reporting service to verify the report hasn't been altered. Also conduct a free VINCheck vehicle-history search at the National Insurance Crime Bureau website. But keep in mind that vehicle history reports can miss a lot. Over the years, we've found many examples of wrecked vehicles that had clean reports. That can happen, for example, if a vehicle is self-insured, which often is the case for rental cars, or if the damaged car or truck isn't covered by collision insurance and an accident report isn't filed with police.

          No matter how good that used car looks, have it checked out by a reliable mechanic, preferably one experienced in auto body work. Don't rely on your mechanic's offer to do a quick inspection free. A used vehicle must be checked thoroughly, a service for which you should expect to pay about $100. Ask the mechanic what the inspection will entail, and request a written report. If a dealer won't let you take the car to your mechanic, go elsewhere. It's a sign he's hiding something. Don't let a dealer persuade you to forgo the inspection because the vehicle is certified or covered by a manufacturer's warranty.

          If you must make a deposit before obtaining an inspection, make sure the paperwork says it's refundable. And always use a credit card. That way, if there are any shenanigans, you can ask your card issuer to initiate a chargeback. If you pay by cash or check or by using a debit card, getting your money back can be a hassle even if you can prove that the dealer engaged in wrongdoing.

          If you buy a used car?certified or not?and discover that it had previous accident damage or other serious problems that a dealer failed to disclose, contact a consumer attorney and your local or state consumer protection agency.

      Hi Guys!
      As part of my Software Engineering degree, I have to do a "Dissertation Project" in my final year. This involves creating a creating a piece of software, and doing various academic research/write ups about it.
      I'm struggling to choose a good title/project for my dissertation. I'm very interested in web design - and it would probably be good to do a 'web-based' dissertation.
      I was thinking about doing something on "Responsive Web Design", but I'm worried that it might become outdated after a few years.
      I was also interested in creating a "Simple CMS Application" but not sure if this would be advanced enough.
      I would really value any ideas or feedback from you guys! Its such an important decision, and I'm sure you guys will know what's best.

      I am having an odd problem with Hellobar.
      I have tested this in Opera, Safari and Firefox and they all display fine except for Internet Explorer...I am seeing this problem with both IE8 and IE9
      Here is the site: www.kleenkuip.com P.S. Make sure your speakers aren't cranked up, there is a spokesperson.
      If you notice the green HelloBar at the top there are images on the very right side and very left side. They are exposing the alt or title tags for the images and pushing the alt text below the graphic...it looks really ugly and messes up the look of the site.
      Any suggestions?
      Thanks

      We are 12 days away from the final UFC card of the year. Since it was announced, it has taken some blows due to injury and lost some of it's star power. Still, it's an overall solid card and should deliver. Card still isn't final with Jamie Varner vs Melvin Guillard being moved over from the TUF 16 Finale and nobody being able to explain how Erik Perez vs Byron Bloodworth is so high on the Preliminary order. I'll post the full card, with the correct bout order, as soon as it's available.
