While that's true, I find that sometimes when seeding an old torrent, I can't give back (data transfer wouldn't happen), possibly because of incompatibility caused by different bt clients used by seeder and leecher(s). When that happens, the only way I can think of to give back was uploading to onl...

Um... I think if we were really to talk about fetishes... it would not be appropriate for this thread. For example, there are a whole bunch of fetishes related to the bdsm world (not just d/s and s/m as some seem to assume--or can't even differentiate between those two) that involve really gross, na...

Well, for me, it's not about security or "power job" but rather ambition. I have always been interested in different types of guys, but they all want something MORE than what they have and they are willing to work for it and confident that they will get there eventually. So, if you are a grocery cle...

Hmm, eye , I stand corrected. That head of hair is indeed very impressive (if not a little disturbing since there was nothing else). However, I think that straight hair is much easier to render and calculate than wavy and curly hair. (I could be wrong. I never wanted to touch graphics again after th...

Hmm, pretty nice pic even when large. The hair looks a bit fake near the shoulders, but not something you'd notice on a smaller pic, huh? But obviously, they can't do individual strands of hair, just "cloth" with the proper texture. I don't envy graphics though. Absolutely hated it. The results are ...

Oh, wow, are you saying that she's CG? That's really nice. Although, people airbrush and manipulate photos all the time now anyway.

The greater trick would be a photo, and see how well she moves. Got a video?

I don't mean to rain on your self-pity parade and all, but don't you think you're being a bit callous? A person--somebody's beloved child who was carefully sent abroad and living away from family for the first time, by all accounts--just died when he was young and had a full life ahead of him, and a...

What do you mean by safe? Using a torrent is only illegal if you are violating copyright laws or if you're distributing some sort of data that is illegal to distribute (i.e. a virus, confidential information, etc.) The act of using torrents itself is not illegal. In fact, you can find many legal and...

As a real geek, my answer is: use notepad or emacs or vim. In other words, write the code yourself. PHP is very simple. There's absolutely no need to have a program write the code for you.
