My mother just keeps giving him scraps. He doesn't seem to like dry commercial dog food, either. He doesn't like the dog bone treats like beggin strips, either.

Depends.
Some when exposed to too much moisture will have molds growing on them, while others can be a haven for flour beetles.

NovU wrote:What unnatural preservatives were added to keep them from rotting

Drying or dehydration mostly.

NovU wrote:freeze, defreeze stuff.

You only need to freeze once.

Buy those zip lock bags.

Put in each bag the amount of food that's good for 2-3 servings in a day or 1-2 sevings if you have the freezer space.

Freeze.

Put out the bag and place the bag in a deep open container when you're about to sleep so by the time you wake up it's not frozen anymore or whatever is your defrosting method there.

When it's feeding time pour the required servings to feed your mutt.

Return the bag to the fridge (not the freezer) and just take it out when it's feeding time again.

If you don't want to feed your dog cold food from the fridge put the contents of the bag in a microwaveable container and microwave it.


A 7"x7" zip lock bag can hold 4 servings for a mid-sized dog. A 1.5 gallon ice cream container can support 5 bags (4 in and 1 on top) so you freezer won't have dog feed juice all over if a bag somehow punctures.

I will take a guess. Perhaps a hamster owner?

Yep, grin. That's pretty much what I been doing except for the microwaving. I do use it time to time but not longer than 15 seconds as I think it kills nutrients bit too much and microwave can cause cancer.

My dog eats much much healthier than me. LoL. I should start caring more about my own body as well.

Owner no, dogs need to be fattened before they are eaten like pigs, cows, or chickens.

I misread those directions at first and thought you were giving directions on how to store dog meat.

Now I've got all this crap all over the kitchen and no idea how to keep them fresh in the freezer.

Just a get a bunch of dogs to eat up the mess. Take care of those dogs then just finish them off when it's cooking time. Fresh fresh beats freezer fresh.

Yeah, but then I'll have to prep those dogs and I'm losing my original investment. Eventually people are going to start coming around and asking questions and I don't have a freezer big enough for that.

If you have a 50 foot cable you can tie those people up and keep them fresh in your basement, zero cost dog food. Might make back your initial investment for the first batch of dogs you had.

Huge ankle roll playing soccer today. A foul by the opponent and I heard a loud crack and could not walk on. I guess it's a torn ligament. I never had an ankle swollen like that before. Three times normal size ... great.

That's why I quitted any soccer activities years ago. Amateur soccer is a killing game. Get well soon.

Had a good job interview yesterday and I would really like to get that job. Only problem is: I'll be given notice whether they'll employ me or not somewhere next week and it's far from sure that I'll get that job. I'm invited to accept another job offer on Monday...
And within the next two weeks I'll get my attorney's certificate, so I'll belong officially to the worst scum of the universe. :twisted:

So I really wanted to have Steam Big Picture in the living room downstairs. So I bought a 50' HDMI cord, cheapest on Amazon, which surprisingly was defective. Learning my lesson, I bought a second ($5 more, better reviewed) cable and actually tested it before wiring it around the house. Wired it down after successful tests, and the downstairs TV gives me black screen flickers and random audio loss with 1080p60hz, but works fine with 1080i30hz. Brought the Sony 3D Display downstairs, 1080p60hz works great no issues. Tried a 6' HDMI with the regular downstairs TV, worked great with 1080p60hz....

Soo, tested out Ultramon and all the other display settings in the world for duplicating displays with different resolutions, hell, even forcing games to run 1080i output instead of 1080p. My only solution seemed to be running everything in borderless windows, which I don't care for.

So I said F it, took the Vizio that was next to my computer, swapped it with the black friday special TV from the living room and it all works. 50' to the Vizio works, 6' DVI to HDMI works next to the computer. I lose out on my faux 120hz, but it should all be goooood.

So yea

sooooo

Soooooo

so

SO

so, I should stop sayin so

so fuck you

so done

I found out my dog became blind just tonight. Not totally but very close to like 98% (& I prolly told you she was deaf). She's suddenly become a really slow/wobbly walker in recent days. I thought it was due to a weather and just having a bad days(maybe cold at worst). Then I took her for a short walk unleashed, she wobble walked, legs crossed, almost fell over, so I picked her up and went back home right away. She was yelping unusually. She just lied down completely non mobile in bed, with an arched-back, and wouldn't allow me to touch her, Did a quick google and it sounded like a disk. So I took her to a vet, first vet I visited turned out to be a complete motherfucker that nearly smacked my dog for nipping his finger which I was able to block as I was holding her. Then saw me visibly upset and started shouting some crap excuse like he was just trying to push my dog away. Fucking nimwit, it's just a 11 pound dog nipping your finger because your stupid muzzle failed to work and your approach was way too aggressive/amateurish. The smack came way too late to consider it a defensive move, and power he unleashed was way too fucking excessive. It was friggin retaliation hit. He sounded like a some crooked/arrogant vet from oversea with transferred license anyway. So I said Fuck It I'm not letting you touch my dog and left. So a second place I went, they were vastly more professional(but known to be more expensive, turned out to be true, $420 for just diagnostic) and confirmed it wasn't disk but blindness in her vision, otherwise healthy for an aged dog. part of me was VERY VERY relieved that it wasn't a disk but I've been in a huge mental distress/trauma since then anyhoo. I am not taking this too well, is pretty tough, sad.

Sorry to hear about the condition of your dog IN GREEN. Does the vet tell you if its possible to heal(I don't know the right words to use) the blindness via an operation?

In a positive story, if I don't have a failing grade this term, I'm going to graduate in May and have a 5 month vacation after going through the year of doing internship + going back to school to finish all of the remaining subjects.

As sad as Novu's story is (my dog will turn 13 in February and thank god, he's still healthy) I wan't to continue with a more happy story too. Just quitted my job as a lawyer three days ago. I was accepted to a job in legal administration (Civil Aviation Authority) the same day which happens to be my birthday. I had to chose between more money, less work and better career possibilities and an underpaid job that really sucked. Choice was easily made as I am allowed to continue to work as a lawyer in my spare time.

I don't usually vent, but at the moment there's not much else I can do. So, might as well...

My friend was nearly beaten to death today. About 10-12 guys jumped him and another friend of mine. The other friend escaped with a few bruises and stuff. But my friend who could not escape was beaten badly. They used stuff like rods, bamboos & sharp objects to beat him. This friend of mine does student politics, but he never did anything violent. And I was at home(far) when all this happened. My friend who escaped called some guys and went back to the scene, seeing them the attackers fled. But before that, they were still beating my friend even as he was unconscious and bleeding. Guys took him to a hospital. He's in the ICU at the moment. He has severe injuries to the head & stab like wounds all over his body. And some broken ribs. His left eye is also damaged. He's 19, keep that in mind. And the worst part of it all is that I can't go to see him. There is no sort of transportation as there is a 24hr strike going on and it will be like that til Wednesday. Walking there is not an option. I'm in constant contact with my friends over at the hospital but that's pretty much it. Kinda feel sucky that I'm not able to be there for him & his family.

Thanks guys. You are good people.

My dad was able to pull in some favors & hire an ambulance. We will go to the hospital in that. Ambulances & media vehicles are usually off-limits to all the random violence that takes place during these strikes. We should be able to reach the hospital in about a hour and a half. My friend is out of the ICU now. The doctor said that the only permanent damage he will have is his left eye. Chances are that he will not be able to have any vision in that eye. And just to get normal(walking, eating normal), it will take about 5-6 months bed-rest.

I wish law & police here were like how you guys mentioned. Actually there were two policemen who were standing right across the street. They didn't interfere because they were outnumbered themselves and didn't have any sort of weapons.

dei. wrote:Any reason for the 10-12 guys to beat your 2 friends?

No particular reason. Just that he's in politics. And we are assuming the people who attacked just took advantage of the scenario that my friend was outnumbered and in a not so crowded place. My friend who escaped thinks he recognized one of the attackers. But we are not worried about that right now.

My computer went into an infinite BSOD loop today. After a bit of googling, I ended up running a disc check, or whatever it's called, on the OS drive. It said it couldn't run that while the disc was in use, and asked me to schedule it for next boot, which I did. Rebooted, BSOD, then I booted into safe mode. It's been stuck at the "please wait" screen, loading all the drivers and such, for hours now.

I assume it's frozen, and isn't running the check in the background, right?

According to the event log, a handful of drivers couldn't be loaded. Some looked like they were AVG related, others I have no idea. I've not recently installed or updated anything, hardware or software, system restore didn't work, and a Malwarebytes scan came up clean, so it's looking like hard drive failure.

Is there anything I've missed? And if I do need to replace the drive (which could hardly have chosen a better time to die), does anyone know how to backup the disc version of Arkham City? I asked here last time I reinstalled Windows backed up all the folders mentioned, and had to start over. I don't really fancy playing the entire thing all over again.


EDIT: Went in to check on it, expecting to still see the "please wait" screen...it'd booted. Properly. However, when I tried to open Firefox I got a "couldn't load XPCOM" error. Now I'm completely lost.

Well, koberulz. That's what happens to you when you visit unregulated pron sites and click on fishy 'freebies'! Let this be a lesson to you young-uns out there.

Exactly. Nothing else matters other than your friend's well being. Keep us updated, I'm sure everything will be fine. Stay strong my friend and stay out of trouble. It's part of growing up.

Reinstalled Firefox, and everything's fine (except that my taskbar disappeared and wouldn't come back, but a reboot fixed that).

Still no idea what caused the BSOD, though.

It's very hard to push the power button incorrectly.

So, finally at home after 4 days. Stayed at the hospital & at a friend's house near the hospital. My friend who was injured is able to speak now. Although, the doctor recommended not to. But who cares? It was like a get-together of friends. Everybody was talking a lot, especially the injured dude. But joking aside, we are all relived that he will be healthy again with time. Because, the guys said that he looked pretty messed up at the day of the incident. Pity about the left eye(not completely blind, but very little vision), but we are all just thankful that everything else will be back to normal again one day.

I will go to visit him again next week. But the chaotic time has passed, hopefully.

I'm sorry for the late reply mate. Well, I live in the 2nd BEST(#139 - 38.7) city in the world! :lol:

You have been a very awesome dude & a great friend to me, much respect & thank you.

As for revenge, you know how young(we are all 19-20yrs old here) brains work. My friend who managed to escape was very eager & rushing us to go the campus of the people who jumped them. But I with the help of some older brothers managed to cool him and the other guys making them understand that more guys at the hospital is the last thing we need right now.


And at last, I didn't see a thread for it. So, I'm just gonna wish you guys Happy Holidays here at this thread. :)

Indeed. A couple of my friends threw a great party, so I enjoyed ringing in the new year with them and the rest of our group. Hope everyone had a good night/early morning and got through it safely.
