There used to be an Italian bakery near my house... in which these older Italian ladies would always be baking nice treats. Now they closed down... and so did a lot of other places I know.

Does anybody know of some good bakeries in the GTA that do more than basic bread/buns?
What are you looking for specifically?

That's a great price for the specs. I've been thinking of upgrading my 6 year old machine too. Contemplating whether or not I should stick with Macs with prices like this.

1100 thats a sick spec at that price...

hey did u hook up the 2 drivers in a raid 0? I was wondering how the hard drives function.. in regards to longevity. A year ago i bought 2 WD Raptors 150gb, and one of them died already , thank goodness for warrenty but i doubt i'll be buying any of htem again in the future.

Ive never really tried to RAID my drives. Not too fond of how it works.

I currently use 1 hard drive for windows and the other one for my other shit.

my work was contemplating on switching the day off for us to the Monday, but they run into issues with payroll. Sucks. Looks like Tuesday it is.

How many of you guys are stopping by the Dent removal?

Google has launched their own version of directly assistance.

If you call 1-800-GOOG-411... they'll provide you with free directory assistance.

I think normal directory assistance is like $1.50 each time on your cellphone. I wonder how Google keeps offering stuff for free?

FYI new Raptor drives are way way quieter than old ones, I recently replaced my old 150gig with the new 300gig Raptor ...nice and quiet.

These things are crazy small if you were to take them out of the heatsink/bracket they come with.

btw, don't stack HDD's right on top of each other. Lots of people don't care and assemble them that way. Leave a slot empty in between for ventilation. Those thing gets hot!

I just watched the movie eXistenZ...David Cronenberg's movie from 1999 with Jude Law and Jennifer Jason Leigh.....

This movie is Fked up...talk about an altered sense of reality.

Has anyone else seen this?

I loved every minute of it. Sort of a thinking man's Matrix, with way less action.
