Manny the Hot Topic...

I found myself in the car for about an hour today, and since the Yankees won last night, I decided to listen to some Boston sports radio.

For almost the entire hour, there wasn't a mention of Beckett, Chamberlain, or the great game that was played... All the focus was on Manny. At first, it seemed a lot like the types of things we've been hearing year after year about Manny, but when you pay more attention you can see that this is a bigger deal.

Check out this article by Boston sports writer Dan Shaughnessy. This type of action was never even discussed in years passed and was just played out as 'Manny being Manny'.

This really is the teams fault. They've let Manny do whatever he wants since 2001, because his performance on the field was so good. All his antics were played off as cute and funny, but now things have reached a boiling point. The ownership, the team, the media and even the fans are starting to turn on Manny. It seems like they've finally had enough.


Now all eyes are waiting to see if he's in the lineup for todays game. If he pulls himself, the feeling is that the team will take some disciplinary action.

Hi dman,

Thanks for your local Boston perspective. Manny is a great player but a bozo as well. The Red Sox brass must show authority with him before he brings down the team. Yankees need to beat Wakefield today since tomorrow night's game could be a toss up. -mlm

DMan, it's just Manny being Pavano ;-)

Manny has always been a knuckle head BUT he always delivers. If I were a Sox fan I would not complain about anyone who ended an 80+ year drought...

Dear fellows!

Is it a deal to convert itunes to mp3? I say NOPE :) Its really nervous not being able to play iTunes tracks with my $300 iriver!
Digging for a solution brings certain results. To [url=http://drm-removal.com/features/iTunestoMP3/convert_iTunes_to_MP3.htm]convert iTunes to MP3[/url] I used this tool drm removal (drm-removal.com or something like this, please ask me - will find that web again). I don't care what is drm - what I read, its something dealing with protection and nothing about iTunes.
But this tool really works for me and it converted quickly my iTuines entire library, including video files!.

How do you convert it? Why itunes makes this shit? I didn't like ipods at all! They simple stuck and suck!
What is that drm that I loose converting my itunes to mp3?

thanks in advance!

My parents and I are trying to decide on weather I should get an iPhone or not. The cost of the monthly service is a big factor in the decision making process. Thanks.

Just to share an expirience:
I digg a way to grab YouTube videos. Some of are webs where you put the url from YouTube and it gives you file with strange extension and small size. Some are really complicated.
My way was to use moviesherlock (moviesherlock.com or sm like this - please ask me - will rememeber). Really simple utility, that just works, and only 1 button in software.
[url=http://download.cnet.com/3001-2140_4-75065920.html?spi=68a87b0bad1ea20e12285c5005469cde]I downloaded it from here: http://download.cnet.com/3001-2140_4-75065920.html?spi=68a87b0bad1ea20e12285c5005469cde[/url].
I downloaded even HD movies!

But it looks too easy, has no player, but just works. It downloaded ~12 concurrent movies for me and actually slows down my system. Its possible to do search in [url=http://moviesherlock.com]moviesherlock[/url] and search results differs from what you see in YouTube. Thats strange.
Who knows - youtube search are same for same text? I loves cat (Simons cat / dog).
Why doesn't youtube allows to download its movies without external tools?!! It actually sucks!

Thanks in advance!

clear meaning wireless? Well until you add some details clarifying what you mean by "clear internet", then the answer is yes if you mean wireless internet. You can use wireless internet on a desktop pc or a laptop.

I need to get ultimate PC for games that will be powerful even after 10 years. Money isn't important for me so the budget is unlimited.

A partition basically divides a single hard drive into two parts. So for instance you could install Windows XP on one partition and Windows Vista/7 on the other. Upon startup it would ask you which Operating System you'd like to boot into. I would assume cross partition refers to the moving and transferring of files from one partition to the other. So if you had a partition on your hard drive you would then have a C: drive and a D: drive, where D: is the other part of your hard drive. You're free to moves files from C: to D: and vice versa but some people advise against it. I've done it many times with large files and folders (such as games) and I haven't had any problems but I may just be lucky.

I need your help in choosing my next keyboard. My keyboard will be used for gaming. The types of keyboards I am looking at are ones where the function row (f1, f2, f3, etc) are attached to the number row (1, 2, 3, etc). Anyone wanna help me out and gimme some recommendations? Another thing, the keyboard must allow you to press multiple keys at once (obviously). This is an example of the type of keyboards I like. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4146132&CatId=533 Small in design, low profile keys/flat keys, my fingers can reach many keys across the keyboard for macroing in video games. Would be nice if the price was under 50 dollars. :]
