lol. titleless thread. If you're reading this, you're 1337.
Also, apologizes in advance to the MOD that locks this. I thought this'd be funny (and I wanted to see if this bug had been fixed yet).

This is something that I haven't quite heard of before and any attempt to use Google to get a result has failed, so I'm hoping someone else here has had this issue before.
Anyway, just went to go delete some files and when I go 'Empty Recycle Bin', I get an error telling me that one of the files in there is currently in use which is odd since you can't use files that are in there anyway. What makes it even stranger is that there is no file called Dc1816 in the Recycle Bin, nor was any of the files I just moved there named that. I've tried rebooting, going into Safe Mode and no dice. I don't really want to re-install XP, though it's long over due.
Throughout Sam's life, he always wondered why his mom and dad were so easy on him. Whether it was sports, school, career choices, or picking on his little brother Keith, Sam always got away with everything. Because of it, he decided to drop out of college and take a dead beat job, wasting most of his time playing video games and wishing he could ask his co-worker Andi out. However, everything changes in Sam's life once he turns 21 and finds out the reason his parents let him get over was because they sold his soul to the devil before he was born.
Satan explains to Sam that he must serve as his bounty hunter, tracking down souls that have escaped from Hell. Initially, Sam refuses to accept his fate but he realizes the grave consequences of breaking a deal with the devil. He is armed with various vessels to collect the escapees. Sam finds that the work is dangerous and frightening even with the goof ball help of his friends and fellow slackers Sock and Ben, and Sock's former girlfriend, Josie. As bizarre as his life becomes, Sam feels good about his newfound "missions", removing evil souls from the world and sending them back to where they belong. Along with his friends and his vessel of the week, Sam prepares to face his destiny as the "reaper".
I've seen both the pilot episodes (one with Nikki Reed in the lead female role and Missy Peregrym in the other) and Nikki was a better choice to play Andi. Missy just looks like she has been super-imposed in top of Nikki rather than actually re-filming the scenes.
Otherwise, looks like a good show.
Oh, and I did a search first, so if there is an existing thread, blame CG.
The Sims 2: Pets added a nifty new of sharing skins/accessories for your pets, unlockable codes.
You unlock the items as you play the game and move your pet/s through the career ladders. When you unlock an unlockable in your game, it automatically appears in CAP and also generates a code for you to share with your friends.
You can find your code by following these instructions from Maxis:
1. Start The Sims 2: Pets.
2. Enter a Neighborhood, click the FAMILIES button, then click CREATE NEW FAMILY.
3. Click the Options icon (the "...") and then click the Game Options icon (the cogs).
4. Click the Blue Key icon which opens the Unlocked Sims Gift Code dialogue box.
5. A code will be displayed underneath the name of each item you have unlocked.
And the instructions on where to put a code continue on from here:
6. Click the Enter a Code Key icon, enter the code, and click the Check Mark icon. If your code is valid, the skin or accessory will appear in the CAP menu.
So this thread is here for you to share the codes that you have unlocked in your game. There are supposeably 41 different unlockables in the game, though check to make sure a code you have isn't already posted in this thread because the same skin/accessory can have different codes.
And please only post in this thread if you are posting an unlockables code, you can thank the poster for the code by giving them a +1 Cool or by posting in their personal comments. This way searching the thread for codes is easy since you don't have to read through non-related posts. Thanks!
Also, check and double check your codes are correct before posting them.
Edit: Posting codes for the Bandit Cat, Purple Pug and Star Dalmatian pre-order bonuses are fine because they can be unlocked in-game too.

Finally, a pack that is similar to The Sims: Superstar! I've missed all the great objects for rich sims to have inside their houses, but unfortunately, it doesn't look like we are getting butlers and the like we got with Superstar (which is somewhat expected from a Stuff Pack).
Unlike Family Fun Stuff, this pack looks good. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw some of the objects on this video it looked like custom content that my simmies are used to. Maxis has finally pumped out some sexy looking objects/skins but it looks like a large portion of the "60 All-New Objects" will be paintings, which is somewhat pointless since the majority of players play with the walls down or on the cut-away option (My option of preference), thus hiding the paintings from view whilst playing.
Anyway, this pack will help tide me over until the next EP (Pets) arrives. The game has been getting a little boring lately...
Anyway, do you guys like the look of this pack, or are you disgusted that we are getting another rip-off Stuff Pack?
I thought I had made this thread last week, but apparently I hadn't.

I don't know about you, but I've wanted Pets since I played The Sims 2 for the first time last year and am pleased to finally see it confirmed (I've been excited since EA's E3 booth) and I'm hoping that they have improved on what wasn't fun on The Sims: Unleashed. I hope we don't have strays again. *shudders*
Anyway, yay for Pet genetics! I wonder if we will be able to get sims pregnant with their pets via boolProp. I want half-sim, half-animal monstrosities running around Pleasantview!

The Guys (ABC) and That Guy (FOX) both sound good and I may watch She Said, He Said (The CW) just to laugh at Nick Lachey.
And is it just me, or does If You Lived Here, You'd Be Home By Now (FOX) sound like Friends?
Everyone has a soft spot for the sims of Pleasentview somewhere inside them and I'm curious to know, how did the lives of your Goth, Pleasent, Broke, Oldie etc families end up?
Did they live happily ever after? Did you torture them? Or did you ignore them?
For me, I recently reset my Pleasentview and I have only been playing the Pleasent family right now, and boy, their lives are chaotic right now.
Mary-Sue caught Daniel 'WooHoo'ing with Kaylynn, so she broke up with him and moved out into this little shack of a house, while Daniel married Kaylynn and had twins (Thanks cheesecake!), Mason and Summer, but then when Herb Oldie (Mary-Sue's father) died, Coral moved in with Mary-Sue, and then when she died, the flame between Mary-Sue and Daniel began to flicker again. Then Kaylynn caught him kissing her and now hates him, and because I accidently got Daniel to flirt with Kaylynn, Mary-Sue now hates him again and has thrown him out, but Kaylynn won't let him move back in with her, so he will eventually die an unemployed bachelor with > Ã‚Â§20,000 to his name.
As for Lillith and Angela, they're sitting in the University sim bin, waiting for their parents to die so they inheriate their parents money so surviving college is alot easier. And they also get the orphan scholarship.
Edit 2: This is the one hundredth thread in this forum! I feel special.
