My soon-to-be fiance and I are both quite in love. However, we met and had a child when we were both younger then we wanted to be to settle down with one person. She suggested (and I'm considering) dating other people while still being together.

I'm toying with the idea of getting a display to use with my 14" iBook (1.33 GHz, 768 MB RAM), mostly to watch movies on (VLC, fullscreen). Ideally, I'd like to do this while using the iBook's screen for other things (internet browsing, word processing, etc) (and on second thought, I may want to run VLC on the 14" screen and do other things on the larger display -- but that's probably irrelevant).

I'm a 22 year old college student in a fraternity and have just been elected social chair, which pretty much means setting up parties with other organizations. To spice things up, we usually set some kind of theme for each bender. So far, we've been given ideas like: * tour de franzia (drink just franzia wine) * ultimate flip cup championship * country club aka golf pros, tennis hoes * walk of shame * trends gone bad * anything but clothes party * gi joes and barbie hoes * white trash trailer bash GIMME SOME MORE IDEAS!!!!!!

Hefty computer problems. My computer (Asus A8NX-E Deluxe) suddenly shut off one day. When I would power it up the fans would run for ~10 seconds -- no BIOS, nothing, then the fans would turn off. Replaced power supply, no difference. Replaced motherboard and the weird fan problem fixed. Placed everything in, no video now. And...

I'd love to add more fish to my diet. But I can't afford salmon or tuna steaks or swordfish or any of that yuppie crap. I happen to live near a decent fish market. They sell all kinds of cheaper fish: spots and chubbs and mackerels and whatnot. Tell me about those. How do I pick 'em? How do I cook 'em? Which ones are the tastiest? Which are the best bargain?
