  1. Bambi, If you have the files in windows.old they wont affect your new operating system, you should be perfectly fine. Just run defrag and chkdsk from the run command panel and you will fix any OS issues/speed problems.
  2. Did you use an actual windows disc or a recovery disk? The recovery disk will just cause everything to happen again because of all the preloaded softwares.
  3. What OS? If you were running 8.1 you have a recovery partition. Here's a link directly to microsofts kbase on doing so with 8.0+ http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/restore-refresh-reset-pc If you are running any other version of Windows you most likely will not have a recovery partition. Another thing you can do which has helped me in the past is booting into safemode which your computer can be forced into. Safemode itself is worthless other than shutting off all processes. The technique I'm going to tell you can cause serious issues so make sure you follow it exactly. Please ask
  4. I've gone through a few dogs over the years and I'll say the one I connected with most was my dog Buddy. He was pit and rot with a little mix of something else but he was such a sweet heart and gentle. He used to care a lot, if you looked sad or were crying he would come over and put his head on you. I know your pain, I occasionally still feel sad when ever I think about him. He unfortunately had some complications and was only with us for 8 years. I know your pain, you don't have to move on, you don't need to replace, nothing will ever fill that spot, but you can get a new companion to help y
  5. Ems, I do all the shipping for the company I manage, I always prepay for shipping which saves me a lot of time. I just have to go in and drop stuff off. Tonight I had 5 items sell. only 1 item sold for an actual profit. The other 4 sold for $0.01, I actually make more off of the shipping than the item, but considering the item was free I don't really care. The one that sold sold for $27.00 flat. I have a bunch of toys and other stuff listed. everything's $1.00 or less so I can build up feedback. Bambi, I have a child, and I wash all of his toys before he plays with them anyways, so it wo
  6. Look for a couch at big lots. Better quality than ikea and pretty cheap to. I'm working about 16 hours a day everyday. Looking for a new job (because the one I'm managing is really slow right now. And some fraud happened a little while ago that took us for $50K). My boss isn't planning to fire anyone just reduce hours, and I can't really afford to work less hours even with my own business going. Been focusing on my own business a lot to try and make up for the business I manage. Trying to sell on ebay, unfortunately people don't like to take risks with 0 feedback. Thats about it though!
  7. One thing you should take into account with this stuff ems is how fast can you turn a profit? You're talking about repairing and reselling, but in actuality how long will the repair take, how much money for the parts, and is the profit you make on it going to be enough? The ideal situation is buying a perfect product at a low enough price that you can turn around a minute later and sell it to the next person for double. Thats incredibly rare, so in this instance if you spend the money on the repairs, plus the time (which takes from you buying more and flipping them) then you're losing money. N
  8. yeah thats not work, thats competing for doing the work for free. Its not worth the work if your going to discount your services just to get the work. You're better off continuing with this idea. Just be careful, one wrong investment and it can hurt in the beginning. I would do a bit more research on that pricing £150 seems a bit high. The going rate for an iPhone 4 here is $150 which is £88 there. And that's on eBay. Flipping bikes is a solid idea too. You could also do like yard sales and swap meets for the weekends to get those. Not sure if you have those there but we do, people will sell t
  9. That's basically how it starts, we have a bunch of regular customers, its funny but one of them sends us hundreds of phones, they get them for free and they really make a killing. But most do the same thing your looking to do. Be very careful with samsung phone's, after all if the digitizer is damaged at all the phone is worthless. Even if you swap the glass the whole point of the phone is gone, and because samsung has their phones patented no other company can make the LCD's in them. Even buying them at any monetary amount would be a loss at that point unless you develop the contacts at one o
  10. Emsley, One of the companies I manage does device reselling. This is essentially exactly what we do buy them at or slightly above the value of our competitors and then turn around and resell them for a small profit. We have a mid size operation although we have a very small amount of employee's and volume. I'll start with the important things to make sure of: 1. Make sure the devices you buy are worth buying. ie no apple ID locks, or severe mechanical issues. Also if they are black listed most people wont buy them. It decreases their value significantly. 2. Ad's are never free, and if you
  11. We didnt really have participation to have a real winner.
  12. I know this is an older post, but I stumbled upon something that proves Goku would beat Superman. Enjoy!
  13. Bambi - SAO ep 14-25 is quite good as well. Most people rag on it because they think 13 should have been the logical end, so I can see why you would stop there. My personal opinion is that it goes into a new direction after that. If you liked SAO, you should see Log Horizon. Its almost the same thing. And of course Accel world, which is the very weird. The manga's intertwine a lot with SAO. It's weird. Ems - Akira is a cult classic. Although not everyone likes it, it is something that usually everyone has seen. If you like these older style anime's you would like Berserk. Its really gra
  14. Two things, bar's do make a lot of money however unless your the main bartender you get the crappy shifts. Most people don't go to bar's because 1. they cant smoke in them anymore, and 2. theres usually old people there. And its nearly impossible to get in at a popular place. Youth are the ones that tip better (surprisingly) they are very loose with their money in bars. Another thing to add, barbering is a great profession but keep in mind if you get hired in a shop you have to pay rent to the shop. Unless its a brand like "SuperCuts" though I'm certain those are only in the US. The way most
  15. I have seen attack on titan, it's pretty awesome. I watched the entire series already. Also deadman wonderland is fantastic. This might sound weird but deadman wonderland made me want to watch Eureka 7 because of the similar drawing styles. So I'm around episode 40 on Eureka 7. I wish they had more episodes of deadman wonderland. I will check out Psycho-Pass. I want to give Magi another chance, I always feel like that anime gets very generic. And now there's a second season. I suppose I should have stated the anime's I'm currently watching. Naruto Shippuiden Eureka 7 Basquash! (R
  16. So I've been keeping up on most of the newest anime's that come out and I feel like there's nothing interesting anymore. Mostly that they are repeating previous anime's but doing them in a slightly different way. For example: Sword Art Online, this anime is mostly original although seemingly copied from the dot hack series. The interesting thing about this anime is that nearly the same time it came out a futuristic anime called accel world came out. these two anime's created in two different studio's overlapped and became based from the same roots. Since they came to an end another anime t
  17. My bad. Wasn't sure it was necessary since the rule states anything more than nipples or outside poonani shots weren't allowed. Theres also previous nipple shots a few posts back that weren't linked. But I will do that from now on. Thank you. Hopefully this makes up for it.
  18. I like dink's option best, however personally I would still go wired. Ever console I had up till the ps3 was wired and its what I'm comfortable with. Beyond that I also quite like that It doesn't need charging. The latency is a big deal in some of the games you may play. I've been trying to get the ps2 emulator working (I keep forgetting to use the utility on my ps2 to get the root info to run it) so I can play at work. I know they developed the 360 controllers to work with windows computers pretty effortlessly. Plug n play style.
  19. I'm very new to the forums, so I cant speak for everyone or offer you any type of acceptance for your post. However I do feel like I've experienced a bit of it and while it did slightly annoy me I shrugged it off. Knowing your struggle makes it that much easier to let it go. Similar to you I got my ex pregnant. After my son was born I ended up giving it another try with her. We got married back in September. We've made things work, and she realizes I'm the best guy she could ever get. Trust me. But I will say that I feel like I made a mistake. I'm not one that regrets things, but my wife i
  20. Thats all one girl. I could say that I've been there done that, but she wasn't the greatest lay, still not the worst. Women don't really have that effect on me emsley, sure some are gorgeous, but I don't let them control me like that. Only two women have ever had that effect on me. And I don't have either of their pictures unfortunately.
  21. I definitely suggest chatting at the very least. The fact that she stated not to say anything means she knows that he's into her and that she is in fact consoling him. He would definitely be peeved if you went in there now. However if he were to find another girl to hook up with she is fair game. Keep the interest there, but tell her you're being respectful of him. She knows what's going on with him probably better than you. You can probably even hint at it a bit with her and she would let you know where it all stands. Sounds like a catch, but chances are she is a short ride if she can upgr
  22. Dink, Welcome to 1Emu. This place is pretty fun and we look forward to having you here. There are plenty of emulators to play around with and knowledgeable admins to ask questions to. We have the most up to date record for most of the emulators out there. Some of the emulators are a bit outdated as its hard for one person to do all of the work (thank you Robert), but for the most part everyone here is really nice. Have fun and welcome aboard. (also you should check out the forum's attack system).
  23. Thats a tough situation, you need to gauge how into this girl your friend is. Though it is also a situation of if she is not into him this way it will just never happen. That doesn't make it okay of course, as the saying goes, if he can't have her no one can. Bringing to light that idea in your head you should of course make sure that it is "alright" with him. Do not divulge any information about the attraction to him as it can trigger jealousy, but more to say "Hey that chick you brought last time, she wanted to hang out with me. If that cool with you?" is somewhere along the lines of what
  24. Here's some more! <------------ NSFW ----------> I had one more... But I don't know if it is acceptable. I'll find out and add it later
