My friend has found a way to help them out, so don't worry! If you want to donate to Big Brothers and Big Sister this Christmas you can go here: https://www.kintera.org/AutoGen/Simple/Donor.asp?ievent=251818&en=ewIZJdMTKhLPLcO4JhJUKcM0IoLYKdPZIlK0JpOaKAL
They also accept donations of certain things (tickets to events, opportunites for the kids, games, craft supplies, and other things) at their local office.
Go to their website to find out to to contact them if you would like to help! http://www.bbbsnorthwest.org/index.html
Any idea why several large groups of bikers have come blasting down Holgate in the past hour?
You add &fmt=18 to the end of any YouTube you're watching and it's suddenly better picture and sound? Some "High Quality" mode that works with any YT. It's pretty neat.
Hurr. I dumb.
thanks in advance. :)
I know I should've bookmarked restaurant recommendations in the past, but I have a question for you fine folk. It's my 20th birthday today and I want to go out to dinner. It would be a group of about 10 college students looking to spend around 20 dollars give or take a few. We also have transportation to get around Portland.
Thank you very much!
Just let me know.
Nothing is more unsettling than some random yutz adding you and then lurking.
Is there a livejournal etiquette to adding someone as a friend? Are you supposed to ask, or leave a comment saying "hi, i added you"
Ive been wondering for a while and after reading the above text on a random LJ i began wondering again.
I like to add people without digging too deep or trying to figure out what they journal about. Now and then i flick a couple off my friends page to clean it out. So, I usually dont say nuthin unless its a comment pertaining to a post. Do you?
Sincerely, random yutz
Can someone please tell me why my computer won't recognize my USB devices? It's two different iPod firewires and a mouse.
I've done the system restore back to September. It won't because it says nothing has changed. Bullshit.
I went to windows and updated every f'n thing it said I needed.
Please. Please tell me what the fuck is wrong.

Anywhere in or close to NE Portland that sells discounted food on certain days? Like along the lines of the 49 cent taco Tuesday the Taco Bell back home had. I would have posted in pdxfood but they seem kind of dead :\.
If you've never bought/heard of SCRIP - it's trading cash for a gift card of the same value and giving a profit to the school of your choice (in this case Swallowtailschool.org).**
We have extra SCRIP cards in $50 and $100 denominations on hand, and accept checks and credit cards (credit cards have a nominal processing fee). We can hand deliver (within a reasonable radius from Hillsboro) or mail upon receipt of payment.
This is a great way to support a non-profit you believe in, without putting extra money on the table - you're paying for what you already buy on a monthly basis - letting your local school benefit!
*Other vendor gift cards are available for purchase through a national website, or local vendors (Powell's, Burgerville, etc) are available on a monthly pre-order basis. Contact me for details!
**For example: You buy a $50 New Season's gift card for $50. We buy the gift card from the SCRIP service center for $48, earning a 4% "profit". Depending on the vendor, our profit percentage ranges from 3% to 48% per card. It sounds small at first, but every purchase adds up!
For more information, please email me at rosalea AT swallowtailschool DOT org.
Thanks for your support!
I'd like to stay in SE if possible.
similar to the shot above.
I'm trying to find a small town...abandoned-esque to shoot some film shots...vacant town, old buildings, convenient stores and store fronts, things of that nature...
I clicked on some Russian LJ today, and now my system is effed up. Search & Destroy says it's getting rid of it, but after 3 tries it's still here. My registry edit window opens and does something quickly when I boot up. I get constant prompts to allow my registry to edit. I'll click "no", but it comes right back. My document folder opens by itself. Random webpages open. It seems to be keeping me from installing AVG. I'll download it, but it will say it's corrupt. I've never had one this bad..
EDIT: SUPERAntispyware (free) knocked it out. Even repaired the registry.
Thank you for all the tips! Learned a few things from you guys I'm going to do for the future.
Portland-related because DP is a font of all knowledge and snarkitude.
I'm looking for a good all-you-can-eat chinese food buffet. I live in North Portland but work in Hillsboro, and I will go ANYWHERE (from Forest Grove to Gresham, and from Vancouver to Sherwood or beyond...)
I want the great Americanized chinese food from my college days in Kansas. I want all you can eat, I want crab rangoon, I want cashew chicken and kung pao beef and those little doughnut things rolled in white sugar. Panda Express with 100 choices, basically.
Is this available anywhere in the greater metro area?
What's your favorite liquor store for selection, browse-ability, cleanliness, non-scuzziness, etc? Bonus points if it is anywhere near St Johns.
Right now I have a Compaq Presario laptop that's over five years old and it's dying on me. I need to replace it soon with another laptop- unfortunately I can't spend $2500 on the new MacBookPro.
My needs, which are very simple:
Internet, word processing, more than 5 hrs of battery life, hard drive over 120GB.
EDIT: thanks guys!
Who wants to be my date for the Powell's Books holiday party tomorrow night? I was thinking of not going, but I probably do need to get out. I promise to get you drunk and take advantage! ;-)
Surely there's a demographic of night-owls who don't like fast food in Portland, and if so, they presumably would have some way of sating themselves, so I'd like to know what it is. If not, I propose that this is a great business niche for some aspiring restaurant owner to fill.
Portland related because....
I'm open to suggestions on that one. I know you'll like it.
