The greatest rock singer has died. :'( He was my favourite singer and Audioslave were a big part of my teenage years. I liked some Soundgarden songs but always preferred Audioslave. That leaves just 1 of the 4 great grunge singers now (Eddie Vedder). They are saying it may be suicide which means 2 were suicide and 1 a drug OD. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-39960066

      Ironically, those things will remind me of something now

      Now it has been updated to say it was suicide. He had a wife and children...
      I know he always had struggles and drug addictions from a young age but still...

      While I'm not personally a huge fan of his singing, I respect his work and found it really sad to hear of this... I'll be listening to a lot of his songs in the next few days.
      My sympathies to his fans (I know at least one other guy who loves Audioslave). :(

      I don't normally get this affected when it is a celebrity since I don't personally know them. I'm listening to his solo work now and damn...
      I'd not really listened to much of his music for a long time and had moved on to other stuff. Audioslave's first album was the best and all my favourite tracks are from that.

      I never liked Audioslave, but the 2nd SG album was fucking great. There were one or two good songs on the 3rd album too, but I never listened to them after that because I got into the California punk stuff instead. Saw them live in 93. The only person in commercial music in the 90s I could honestly say was more talented was Jeff Buckley. He and Cornell were on another level compared to the rest. Cornell even produced some of Buckley's stuff after his suicide (they were close friends apparently). Cornell's suicide comes exactly 20 years after Buckley's (almost to the day). RIP Chris :(

  • I'm going to be signing the lease on a bungalow on Monday. After that I'll probably spend a couple of weeks getting stuff ready and then I'll move in. Life is going to change massively but it had to happen. I'm just anxious/stressed atm about it.

      I hate moving, but it is [almost] always better once it's done. Good luck

      Thanks. I'll be moving into my own place (At last). So I'll go from having family around to being by myself. But it'll only be 10 minutes away from my family.

      In some ways it'll be even more remote than where I am now. There are more houses around but there isn't much nearby. But it is down a lane that has no through traffic so it won't be busy at all (nowhere for cars to go :p)
      Plus it is far back from the road anyway.

      A big difference to where I am now where the road can get busy and the house is right next to it.

    It has been dead for a while but it is officially not coming back now. There is an alternative instead now but I can't guarantee it is safe.

    DMCAs will never stop it when it is so easy to make a new site. I don't know why they even bother trying.

      https://kimcartoon.me is apparently the replacement. Any other kisscartoon site is fake and potentially has malware.

      Come back when you have 36mb/s

      I haven't tested with a wired connection. Maybe that will be faster than that even :p

      I was very skeptical when the ISP said we could get faster broadband. But they were right. The first one was done yesterday and is reflective of what I had to put up with for years.

      I'm in a city and I'm still getting 2mb/s. We had an outdated router so it couldn't handle more, they should change us over to faster internet soon.

      Are you guys in Australia? We haves the coppernet here and it is lightning fast 256kb dl. Nobody wants it to be faster than that, our government told us.

      woohoo up to 0.5mbs today! All hail our superior technology protecting us from the fast internet we don't want! http://imgur.com/a/CwsAp

      Actually, you win because my internet just decided to start slacking and now it's just 6mb/s

      I'll be moving soon though and I'm hoping I'll still have decent internet. It says that fast internet is available there but it might not be quite as good since it seems to be even further from the exchange.

      I still remember when we could only get dialup and we could get around 18Kb/s

    Mentioning someone in a discussion (like this: @Name) is a great way to encourage dialog and let them know who you’re talking to.
