Can't name any specific brands or models, but I know there are cooling pads which seem to be the most popular kind of cooling devices for laptops. Example: http://www.amitbhawani.com/blog/laptop-cooling-pad-a-cool-bed-for-your-laptop/
Google around and maybe you'll find some specific models with good reviews.

I'm trying to find out names of 2 cartoons from my childhood.
First one: probably done by disney, at least drawing and animation style looks like it. Is about a boy, a girl, and a bunch of dinosaurs which somehow obtained intelligence and acted almost like normal humans. Then they met some creepy old guy who apparently owned a circus. He made the boy sign some contract with blood from his finger, and then something bad happened to dinosaurs. They reverted to their original selves with big teeth and no brains, and I think the old guy made them perform in his shows. In the end something else happens, dinosaurs get their intelligence back and the old guy gets eaten by crows, leaving behind only a fake eye.
Also featured a family of birds, and a small alien in a small flying saucer.

edit: it's We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story



Second: Was probably a series of cartoons, but I only remember one. AFAIK they were based on children's books by some female English writer. The cartoon I remember was about two pigs who traveled through the countryside trying to cross the border to obtain freedom (not sure from what, maybe from farmers o_O).
One pig was male (wearing a brown jacket and carrying a cane, also I think his name was Herman or Henry), and another one was female, wearing some reddish or pinkish dress.
I only remember the last part of the cartoon: they almost reached the border (a river with a small bridge across it), but ran into a human riding on a wagon on a who asked the pigs where they were headed. Somethingsomething, the human was friendly but for some reason pigs looked like they were afraid of him. Human told the pigs to wait there, he'll brb. Pigs waited until the human goes far enough away and then rushed for the bridge, crossed it, got all happy and started singing a song. The end.
This part was with live actors: Inside a wooden countryhouse a woman closed the book, said something about garden with flowers, left the house and went somewhere. Camera followed her for a while, showing the surrounding village and other people who lived there, then credits started rolling.
The drawing style of this one was more realistic than most cartoons. The pigs walked on 2 legs, but shape- and anatomy-wise they still looked close to real-life pigs.

So yeah. Any kind of clue would be nice.

Deliberately, because you think it's cute. I think you may have potential to be sensible, but you might never let that side of you show.

Beer for casual drinking. Vodka for... spiking drinks with... or if you really like the taste. I've tried getting into it but just can't enjoy the taste yet.

I was just downloading some torrents (with bit torrents) and I was wondering if they would download faster if I take down the Upload limit? Is the upload for the other leechers?

Yes and yes. Always limit upload unless you want to be noble to your fellow peers and ruin your download speed for everything. I have my torrents scheduled to upload unlimited during 2am to 4am (when I'm asleep) and max out at 200KB/up any time else.

You need to sleep more.

Only anime shows I've felt any interest in over the years are Pokemon (original TV series) and various hentai.
so clearly jgrp is a goddamn anime connoisseur. his opinion might as well be law here.

Best Admin: jrgp, he's like the forum mom and a pet dog rolled into one.

Plenty of time to sleep when you're dead. Sleeping as little as I do might mean my longevity is impaired slightly, but at least I'll be awake more often to enjoy life so it balances out.

Another quick question... Can someone here explain to me why fro time to time Youtube stops working for me, like my computer only.  This could happen after watching like 20 vids or after only 2.  And so that the page becomes available for me the only thing I can do is wait...

EDIT: I just tried disconnecting and reconnecting from my wireless network and still wont work.
