Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Looking for ADVICE on selling a collection...

In a charitable sense I might also suggest that the really craptastic stuff you'll have a hard time selling for even a buck would make a great donation at this time of year to a gifts-for-kids program of some sort. �That's my plan for some of the stuff that's not worth the hassle of listing/shipping for minimal return. �

Please consider:

Divide them into lots of 10-20 figures.  Be sure to include 1 or 2 valuable figures per lot.  Arrange them roughly chronologically. 

You're not going to make back your investment by a long shot, but you should get a few bucks this way.

Axl was a prima donna being a prima donna.  Nothing new there.

Never a fan of the twin fantasy myself.  I guess it's just a freak thing.

Red X for me also & I copied & pasted the URL into another browser & it took me to Google.

Same thing happens for me.  I wonder if that gorillamask site is not on the up & up.

Sites like Google and Yahoo are connect almost directly to the backbone of the Internet.  Sites like JD and RS are usually in data farms, which are usually connected with a pretty fast connection to the backbone, but not nearly as fast as main sites.  So there's usually a speed difference there.

But thinking about it, I think it'd be more likely to be a problem with your ISP's DNS server, or their connection to the server that resolves domains.  Basically, when you type in a URL, that data shoots out to your ISP, who then sends a request to a domain controller server.  That server gets the URL, and returns the IP address associated with that URL.  That IP directs your provider where to look for the site.  For something like Google, that IP would be in the cache on your provider's server because it's so frequently accessed.  For JD, that would be accessed much less frequently, so it'd be flushed from the cache and need to be looked up every time.

Your personal PC should store most of the recent IPs from sites you've visited, which should allow it to bypass this process.  But you can fiddle with a browser not to store IPs like that and rely on your ISP.

But really... DLS sucks balls.  You should have gotten a cable modem.  Then you wouldn't have any problems.

Looks like it's time for another thread purge or something over there.  The past three days I've had trouble loading up the forum, with it failing half the time.  And last night I started getting that wonderful page full of database error messages.   :P

Didn't you hear him?  He wants to be the sole owner of a Borat avatar in this forum.  Come up with something original for yourself, you copy-cat!!

You considered that review positive?  Dull plot?  Few jokes?  Toned-down Jack?  No real fantasy?  Lackluster script?  Called a D fan's "Phantom Menace?"

I wouldn't call those descriptors positive.

I'll bet she eats a cookie from time to time.  It's not like she's a twig...
