I'm not a native speaker but I can at least have a look at it. So unless you find someone else (with English as his/her mother tongue) feel free to hit me up with a PM.

My old one just had one vertical yellow stripe roughly in the middle of the screen and it just popped up one fine day. I kinda got used to it after a few days, though. Not sure for how long I still used that laptop but it must have been at least 18 months until it finally gave up. Or I gave up because technically it's still working but I'd lose many braincells and my blood pressure would rise every time I'd use it.


there's definitely a reason. i hit it in frustration once, dropped it, dropped it again, and my dog ran over it while playing fetch (i still don't know where my "7" key is). the good news is i found an old monitor that works perfectly. it beats buying a new laptop.

i'm impressed you managed to live that long with a problem like that. i mean that's pretty hard to miss a line in the center of the screen. hell, i get frustrated when i lose my internet connection for a minute.

Oh, not having Internet connection for a minute pisses me off just as much as it does to you but after a few days I got used to it. It wasn't really wide either. It was just there and I managed to ignore it mainly.

LOL. Maybe we could finally beat a team like Memphis with our old neighbours in Milwaukee helping us out.

I am not quite sure how and where i can introduce myself,but i guess i'll start it this way and on this thread.I hope my english is good enough for you to understand what i am talking about and this wall-of-text won't make your eyes bleed.

My name is Eddie and i live and work in Montenegro(used to play basketball 194cm tall,but abandoned it from 2 reasons:not being good enough to start and i got my shoulder dislocated from nasty fall on one stupid dunk attempt).I've been following NBA for quite some time, but more often since Pek joined Timberwolves.At first i started following team shyly. but after few games i saw, seeing Pek playing poorly and being foul machine and not getting minutes kinda drove me off watching other games.After his breakthrough season last year and my mancrush i had in Rubio (Euroleague huge Barca fan) were 2 reasons that made me watch every single Wolves game including this year preseason games,which made me like Wolves and their players(Keep in mind those games start usually @ 1-3 am GMT+1 time zone).

As u can see from my nick, the other reason i've been lurking on these forums is the other Nikola, Nikola Vucevic from Orlando Magic,which had monster game vs last year champions Miami Heat.I've been surprised how much praise he got for that game despite playing vs average rebounding team like Miami and it was nice too see that his effort is appreciated.I am not quite familiar with bandwagon fan term but i know its a bad thing, so i would like to get clearer explanation about that term,I see myself as casual fan which likes to watch NBA.

Anyway this Timberwolves team remind me a lot on our NT,probably top 3 frontcourt in Europe(Pekovic,Vucevic,Dubljevic(our KLove though only 20 y old), few veterans which can bring some hustle and easy buckets and ballhog and good defensive SF with DMC mentality and talent.Our backcourt is horrible and those players are either average or they are just streaky.There is some talent and athletic ability but its mostly wasted.Even with those flaws and w/o both Nikola's our team managed to qualify on Eurobasket 2013 undefeated in group with Israel and Serbia which got manhandled by our defense and outplayed generally speaking.Which was big success for country with population of 650k.

Since this is first time for me to register on foreign forums,i am not familiar with some sub-forum rules so if there is something i am missing and i have to know, i am open for any feedback and suggestion,because i want to be able to share my impressions about this team on game threads and become part of this community.

Anybody else here with season tix go to the town hall event they held with Porter & Dunn?

Was pretty decent, got most of the autographs from the team besides the Russians & Love. Was pretty cool to see Pek standing up close in person. Definitely a guy you don't **** with.

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/falcons-fan-stabbed-throat-49ers-fan-loss-005424158--nfl.html

TL:DR -
Just in case you live in Europe, the San Francisco 49ers defeated the Atlanta Falcons. Witnesses claim that a Falcons fan punched a 49ers fan. The same 49ers fan than stabbed the Falcons fan.

Now I don't know the whole story, but why do people get so butt hurt over sports teams? It's not like the Twins performance is a reflection of my own abilities.

Because it's different with football, people are way more passionate about that sport, I am. I get pissed off when people say dumb **** about them in school.

Atlanta football fans have a history of starting **** after games then getting stabbed.
