Games are again proprietary software (especially if you have to pay for them), so they're no-goes.

I already did get some other things that I wanted from my friends, such as the Can't Be Tamed album by Miley Cyrus (which is the only thing that falls into the "Other" category I really wanted), so technically that category has already been accounted for.

Which leaves me with one more issue: hardware. My desktop is in desperate need of repair: a new video card, a new MB, a new CPU -- basically a new everything. That's why I voted there.
Do you have a crush on Miley Cyrus? (seriously)

Not anymore. Used to before 2008 and before Miy has become what she is now: a salvia-smoking money-hoarding racist slut who is nothing like what she was back in 2006.

Kenny, I may disagree with you on a lot of issues, but sometimes you crack me up (as in funny, in a good way).

That was half shock and half laughter bursting out at the same time in a near perfect emoticon.

Anyway, don't feel bad; I have a crush (kinda... moreso than any other) on a (semi-popular) girl too. (And that's current!)

Sometimes I think you are to hard to yourself. You actually don't want to play a game, even if it is really good, just because they don't give the source code to you?
I hope you do know that there are some really good open source games out there.

By the way, do you watch films, that are not released under the Creative Commons license, or a somewhat similar?

Yeah, but unlike you, I have been paying attention to news.

First of all, have you seen the news about Miley's 18th birthday? She smoked something to get high that is speculated to be either Salvia or weed -- and it was on both the Web and many TV channels.

Secondly, I would say she's the M$ of the music industry if you consider just how many millions of dollars she amasses.

Thirdly, back in November 2008 she was goofing off with her friends and pulled her eyes into slits to show insensitivity to Asians. And being the Christian that I am, I was beginning to question her faith.

Fourth, have you seen all those racy photos of her on the Web? Again, that's un-Christian.

@Anisha Kaul - well troubleshooting for husbands is easy, just look at the list.
Troubleshooting wives is an issue because the symptoms show up days or weeks _after_ something has happened. And to make matters worse husbands do not have that long memories. Well, emotional aspects is something I do not understand even after being with the same person for 5 years now. Sometimes I hope I understand what she _really_ means and what am I expected to say after she says something.
My 2¢

Then the music business has really a lot of MSes.

John 8:7 : Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.

I find it rather funny that you can say what is christian and what is not. Many people study the bible for years, and can't come to a common sense what is christian, and what not. See alone how many "true" christians are out there, like Catholics, Evangelists, Baptists, ... .

Okay, sorry. Sure, I am going overboard a bit. But you guys, just why do you think I am being so evil? Okay, you're right: those old posts are very radical...

It is just that having been cyberbullied by Windows users (@StalePancake in particular) on PCW Forums is sure to make me scared enough to take it out on others, but again I shouldn't have. Just because someone uses Windows or Mac OS X does not mean that they are evil.

Yeah, kinda-sorta. I like the FOSS drivers, I like supporting Intel (they are very supportive of Linux) and every time I've had a Intel IGP it was very, very easy to get Linux up and going. It's not really about the money as much as the fact I just like the Intel one better, even if it means I'll have to buy an Xbox to get my gaming itch cured.

Well, I tried to be nice on one of your blog posts and you deleted your whole blog post without a reply.

What it boils down to is that:

  • Apple has proprietary software locked to proprietary hardware

See the pattern?
