I agree. Not all of the movies can be Wrath of Khan or The Undiscovered Country. For what it's worth, I find the reboot interesting. I like seeing his alternate Star Trek universe. I'll be interested to see if he finds a way for them to force their way back into the timeline of the originals by some "fate" plot device.

Notre Dame's one and only...fighting chicken. It's a work in progress.

I'll try it out and see what it looks like. If I like it, I'll post it in a reply for ya.
EDIT: Nice suggestion. I REALLY liked what I saw when I removed the glow from the text. That's a good critique and the reason I love posting these on here. Here's your reward:

I'm going with the pistol...or, perhaps, whatever the Navy (Seals) team runs...
|3 days 21 hours ago||Well, they win a lot.||
Well, they win a lot. There's that. Just sayin'.
|3 days 21 hours ago||I'm stuck in Columbus. And||
I'm stuck in Columbus. And aside from the annoying Buckeye fans, it's actually a pretty awesome place to live. Job market isn't bad, the cost of living isn't crazy, and my taxes, while high, aren't outrageous. I love Michigan, but the State of Ohio itself isn't worth hating - just tOSU athletics and their worst fans.

The Buckeyes won their last NCG in Basketball in 1960. I think that's what he's talking about.

Not sure if this is what you meant, but here's something to start with, per request.

That's easy. I'll work on it tonight or tomorrow.

They're supposed to be lightbulbs in the process of lighting up. I was originally going to go with just the one light and all of a sudden it hit me that it would look better with both helmets.

Is it a MIDI file? If so, mad props for going WAY old school to commit that sin.

Pretty sure he means that Hoke finds good deals and because he's a Prime member, he's rocking the Super Saver Shipping to save even more money!

Yes. The Te'bowing would be insane.

Haha! Awesome. Hadn't even crossed my mind.

Careful with that RR talk, Section 1 is always watching.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I think you meant 1 playoff||
I think you meant 1 playoff game win. Just making sure. They have been to the playoffs multiple times, just one win.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||If you get me what you want||
If you get me what you want on there, I'll put one together for you and email you the higher-res file.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Get me the screen dimensions||
Get me the screen dimensions of any devices you want wallpaper for and I'll work on converting them.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I'll work up a Mac||
I'll work up a Mac appropriate version. Which do you like better? Do you place your dock in the bottom or right-hand side?

It's some painted piece that looked cool beneath it, so I went with it.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Not to Thread/Diary hack, but||
Not to Thread/Diary hack, but here's a recent one I was working on. I'm going to try to get the wallpapers for all of the game done ahead of time, but I figured that I'd do a Devin wallpaper for the offseason (or until I decide to do another).

They both tie at #1. Then, in an effort to determine the ultimate winner, they each write an essay to Kate Upton and have her decide which is better. Then Basketball wins because Spike MF Albrecht.

True. I'll work with the mindset that no likenesses are allowed with my next attempt.

Wow. Lots of responses. I appreciate the candor of the dislikes. I am most certainly not advocating changing the banner for good (I think I spelled that out clearly in the post), but I wanted to get a forum going.

We would have beaten them last year if Borges didn't do a line at halftime and mess with the gameplan as a result.

The_Knowledge, is that you?

I'd be willing to throw my hat in the ring for that. I even have a good idea. I'll work on it this weekend. What are the banner dimensions? I want to create something that fits exactly and I'm at work/lazy and don't want to right-click to find the image properties myself.

I think he means clicking in the photo to pop-out to the hi-res instead of having a text-based hyperlink.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||1) Make sure the draw is||
1) Make sure the draw is "forgivable." There is nothing worse in the sales world than to have a great month and have most of it go towards paying back what you owe on your "nonforgivable draw."
2) With a 4-day class and effort, you should be good on the Series 7 which is the FINRA general securities exam. It's not easy for most people (the 1st-time failure rate data shows that), but if you go into it knowing you need a good amount of effort, you'll be fine.
3) The Series 66 is the exam to be able to offer investment advice for a fee (like a managed-money client who pays a quarterly fee). That you're being required to get this leads me to believe you're looking at a firm that values relationships (your fee goes down as the porfolio does down, in general), so that's a good sign.
4) The field is not easy right now - I will say that. You get a lot of angst from clients who blame you for all the craziness of 2008, regardless of your role. It IS, however, rewarding and a good way to get your foot in the door at some great earning potential jobs. The Series 66 will also enable you to start building a client book that will bring you a "salary"-like experience from their investment fee income - that's a nice thing for budgeting, etc.
5) The securities industry is EXTREMELY legalistic and, since 2008, there is much more regulation to keep up-to-date on. Be prepared.
In the end, if you enjoy sales and building relationships with clients, it's a great profession that can pay quite well. I can quite confidently tell you that if you put in the work, you should get that minimum $60k/year they told you. Just be careful (sounds like you are), and I'll echo the thoughts of the others - GET YOUR DEGREE. While they don't mean as much anymore (and almost never mean anything to the sales world), degrees are a great backbone for a professional career, regardless of the field.
Best of luck!
