    What's wrong with celebrities these days?

    Do you ever watch that show called something like "Cribs" on MTV? It takes a music group / band / singer / celebrity and they show you their whole house, take you on a tour. They have lots of cool stuff, but they all have something missing.

    Where is the computer lab for LAN games? Where is the dedicated T1 internet connection? Where is their mail server? My god, with all their money they sure forget the important things in life.

    What else am I missing?

    I wondered that, too. Then I wondered why in the hell I was watching MTV.

    Dale Earhardt Jr.'s place had a little LAN room.

    how about because of the fact that they aren't friggin geeks?

    if they were interested in it they would have it, seeing as how each of their 12 cars costs 4 times more than my house, heck each of their faucets probably cost 4 times more than my house

    Celebrities are console gamers who prefer Macintosh laptops for their web surfing needs.

    Point well taken though.

    If I ever got that mega-rich, I think I would own all of the newest, fastest PDAs; all of the newest, fastest laptops; all of the newest, fastest Desktops; and yes, all of the newest, fastest Macs.

    On top of it all, I would section off a room or two in my house just for cool computers and servers and whatnot. I'd run two dedicated OC3 connections to that room, and I'd set up one of those huge 250-terabyte-and-150-processor megaservers in there--just for kicks.

    And you'd invite everyone here over and we'd have a big Lan part with free beer? :P

    MTV cribs

    Not really posted over here before, my brain explodes trying to understand C. But as a regular viewer of Cribs (or through the keyhole for the mega-rich) this thread touches on my biggest rant.

    What is the point of Gold Taps? As in fieldy from Korn's house also any Rapper's house.

    I really really have a problem with that, that is such a stupid thing it makes me very very cross.

    Also I saw Ted Nugents house. He is a psychopath and shouldn't be allowed to own an elastic band never mind a collection of guns.

    There rants 1 and 2 successfully completed. The best houses Ive seen are Moby's and some basketball player Jason someone I think? played for either a NY of NJ team his house was cool and his garden huge including MacMoo's (Highland Cows)

    His house is close to my work. That guy scares me.

    I thought the drummer from Blink 182 had a nice pad. Although, he looked totally out of place standing in it.
