I hate this game. I had my girlfriend play it, and she got so freaked out that she couldn't fall asleep. Instead she spent the whole night keeping me awake.
And not in the good way, right? slywink

Man, crazy that he survived this long with all of his drug and alcohol issues only to succumb to depression.  What a shame.
im guessing that they're all connected. I'm totally gutted. These celebrity deaths rarely affect me but this one is different.

I use Doggcatcher on Android. I listen to Stuff You Should Know,  Dan Carlin's Hardcore History and Common Sense podcasts and a very good history of Rome podcast called The History of Rome podcast (which is about 73 hours long and covers from the beginning to the fall of the Western half of the Empire.

Really? It works for me. Perhaps it's the mobile site. This should be the regular link.
125  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / What do we think of this laptop? on: August 05, 2014, 09:14:34 PM
Is this a decent cheap laptop?

My sister is going to teachers college in the fall and is looking to pick up her first laptop. Knowing her, the most she'll use it for is writing papers, checking email, doing Skype with her bf in France. I suggested she focus on something that has decent RAM, a touch screen and is lightweight and has a decent battery.
I realize that the screen resolution is a bit low and we're not talking about MacBook Air weights but this computer seems decent and has a good battery life. I haven't been able to find any reviews on it though. Thoughts?

yeah, I've never understood the drive to buy a phone full price either unless you travel out of the country a lot.  Otherwise, you pay the same monthly rate I do as a subscriber but paid more for your phone.  I know it's due to the companies not wanting to cut profits though. 

Actually, I use a out-of-contract phone and paying $35 per month for unlimited everything. Is that the same price as your in-contract plan?

I generally keep my phone for 3-4 years, so it balances out in about 20 months, then it's pure savings after that.
Yeah, there must be a lot of people like me who want a high end phone but want to be able to save money by not using the high cost contracts which comes with high end phones. I don't mind spending $400 for a unlocked phone if it allows me to use a service where I only have to pay $20 a month which suits my needs.

Scrolls by Mojang looks pretty interesting and so does the Anno game. Card Hunter I know is a good game. I can't believe there are at least 5 Warhammer games coming out! They must be raking in the licensing fees.

On Tuesday night, Palin made an appearance on Fox News during which she mocked Boehner’s planned lawsuit.

“You don’t bring a lawsuit to a gunfight and there’s no room for lawyers on our front lines,” she said.


What exactly is she suggesting? That someone needs to bring a gun? Someone lock this woman up already.

I am an Apple guy, so I am biased, but MS has a lot to learn from Apple as far as stores go. Employees needed the manager's help with the discount. The manager was busy playing Xbox and was quite annoyed that he had to help out. They were trying to get me a package deal with the warranty, case etc, which would have been cheaper, but they couldn't get it to work with the discount. Again the manager was too busy to care. I almost walked out due to him, but the employees themselves were doing everything they could to work it out and were very friendly. You could tell they were very embarrassed by the manager as well. I am going to see if I can leave store feedback somewhere.

Out of curiosity but we're you at a Microsoft Store? Sounds like someone needs to be looking for a new job.

I wonder if having the time stop every time the whistle is blow would help get rid of these delays. Of course that would make the game a lot longer. They could reduce the halves to 30 minutes to offset that.

Also, they don't have the power to make medicines (or anything) free.  Not sure where that concern even came from.   icon_confused

No but they do have the power to strip legally obtained TM's whenever they want apparently. So why not benefit mankind?

And I have no delusions about Snyder, but he's clearly not greasing the right palms.

Edit: I wish Pr0ner would chime in. I think he works in the patent/trademark field.

Aren't all trademarks legally obtained though? If you're not allowed to strip a trademark then what is even the point of having a process that enables that? I'm not sure that there's anything wrong with overriding previous decisions. Everything that is illegal was once legal.

According to my Facebook friends, the new argument is that Oklahoma means "red people," so we better change the state's name now too.
Tell your friends that they don't need to change the name, then just lose their trademark rights to Oklahoma. smile
147  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Re: Amazon's new product: Holographic 3D Phone? on: June 19, 2014, 08:57:20 PM
Yeah this would make way more sense for Amazon to make an app for the millions of smartphones that are already out there directing all those customers to Amazon's store.

The biggest problem I have with it is that we have a branch of the government deciding what is and isn't "offensive" based on speech. If you guys so clearly want to believe in the free market then why can't the USPTO sit back and watch the trademark wither away because the American people don't buy the products it's associated with?  

Why is it is so difficult to understand that this is out and out racism.  Redskin is NOT a tribal name, nor is it a person's name.  It's a racist slur.  Indians have been trying to get it banned for ages.  This isn't a new endeavor created by a "PC crowd".  If there was a team called the New York Kikes or the San Diego Tar Babies, would that be okay?  

And the American people have repeatedly proven that they aren't ALWAYS going to do the right thing.  As a matter of fact, if the government DIDN'T step in from time to time, we'd still have lynchings, whites only water fountains and segregation in many areas.

1. I never denied that it's offensive or racist.

2. Lynchings, whites only water fountains, and segregation are a far cry from a corporate logo and team name. In fact they're not even in the same ball park. We're not talking about basic human rights here, what we're talking about is hurting people's feelings. It's a slippery slope when the government starts making decisions based off of hurt feelings.
I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt but the fact that Zeke agrees with you could be a hint that you might be wrong on this one. smile

I'm guessing your joking but being a cowboy has nothing to do with race. Unfortunately this will be tied up in the courts for a long time. I wonder how long the team would keep their name if everyone started making merchandise without paying royalties. I bet they would drop their righteous anger pretty fast.

It's always been smoke and mirrors anyways. Why not change the message? How beneficial is all this cloud/dedicated technology for people who aren't signed up for Xbox live? If someone just wants to play single player, can they still take advantage of the building falling down technology without having to subscribe to Live?

I'm thinking about it. It's a Slitherine/Matrix game so you can feel fairly confident about buying it and not finding that it's on sale for half price the next month.

You'll have to register your key with Slitherine and they'll give you a Steam key.
