I read that, seems like a really bad idea to me.

I checked to see if there was already a thread for this. I have to say my thoughts and prayers are with Africa right now. Additionally, I am getting nervous that it will leave the continent. Thoughts?

That thread got no love, and I imagine the strategy lovers here have played the PC version at least...

Have any of you tried this yet? It is getting outstanding reviews, and has peaked my interest. I have never actually played a war strategy game like this, however I've always wanted to. This may be the first one that I try. Thoughts?

Really good article about it.

I hit a new personal best tonight and made it to rank 11!  The match to get there was one of the best matches I've ever had.  They guy I beat was playing priest and we both immediately sent each other invites when it was over.  It was so back and forth it was nuts.  If he had won he'd have made it to 11 too!   Anyway, still loving this game and for me it's probably my GOTY so far, with Infamous as a very close second. 

I had never played anything like this before and to like this as much as I do is worthy of at least a mid-year GOTY.0

I have something like this too, internet and tv through the electric power board here in Chattanooga.  They claim
We have the fastest internet in the country and I couldn't wait to switch from comcast to them 2 years ago, not because of the speed, but because of my feelings towards comcast, which are enormously negative.

Are you going to be able to keep your service as is? IIRC, it's a Tennessee rep that is the one who started this bill in the first place. She is heavily funded by the cable companies as well.

I haven't heard about this, id like to see them try and take it from me though.  I kid of course, but my particular city is putting a lot on our recognition as " the gig city" and I assure you this isn't because of "Xfinity".  In reality it's a big reason we've had Amazon and VW open centers/plants here.  There is way too much riding on that for some broad (sp, never used it in this context before today, but it seemed appropriate) with Comcast money in her pocket to do a damn thing about it.

Our politicians frankly won't let that happen.  If they do, I'll be here talking about it I promise.

Summary of what is going on in your state with muni-broadband. Your state already came up with a law limiting it, and your congressman is leading the way at the federal level. All of this is being funded by the big cable companies.

Thank you for sharing Lee, she isn't in my district, but anyone supporting this nonsense will not get my vote!

I love Yogurt too.  I like tart flavored with fruit, Blue Berries or blackberries are my favorite.  I love granola with it too, and feel if you use low fat yogurt and granola for breakfast that is perfectly healthy.

Regarding heartburn ATB, I used to struggle with that too, but a few weeks ago tried the off brand Prilosec and couldn't be happier.  I've had no heartburn, eaten no tums and find it to work wonderfully.  I'm going to talk with my doctor to make sure it's okay to keep taking it.  It was like 7.99 at Walmart.

I'll be curious to hear what your doctor says about Prilosec.   Mine told me it was ok to use short term, but take it too long and it runs the risk of damaging your kidneys. 

I'll let you know for sure, hate to hear what yours told you as I love never having heart burn.  I first need to schedule a routine physical, which I'll do in the next week or so.

The absolute best part of this is how much money Comcast is spending here (I'm sure I mentioned I HATE them).  Billboards, radio ads, all referencing the EPB.

I heard a few weeks ago that they would be pulling out of our city and letting Charter take over.  I know not if that is accurate, but they're getting their asses kicked here so it wouldn't surprise me.

I have played faced that Rogue deck (mill rogue is the name), and agree it's tedious.  There are other mill decks so watch out.  I've been playing Miracle Rogue and its a very strong deck (the most card draw and burst power of any I've played).i

Still, I have never had a cable company that I did like. We need competition.

What you need is a municipal internet provider. I get mine (cable tv, too!) through our electrical utility. It's taxpayer owned and the payments stay in the community; any profits get turned over to town government. They have fewer than 10,000 customers and when I have a problem I know I'm going to be speaking to either Donna or Chris.

That's right: communism. I'm glad our utility was chartered in 1892 because the conglomerates have made it next to impossible for communities to establish them now. Internet service should be a public utility like electricity and water. Duh.

All I'll say, but the audio clip above isn't surprising, after a conversation I had with Comcast, my wife claims that is the first time she's actually been concerned that I would be arrested.   They are a bad company, and will never receive one more cent from me.

38  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Amazon.com Problem... on: July 16, 2014, 11:40:17 PM
Amazon is pretty much one of my favorite companies.  We've been Prime members for 2 or 3 years now and I couldn't be happier with their service and obviously the convenience of ordering things from them is unsurpassed.

While looking for an authentic Apple Smart Cover for my iPad 4 today on Amazon, I came across an issue that is likely known by many, but I find it hard to believe Amazon continues to allow it.

Challenge for those of you reading this:   Can you post a link for an authentic, Apple made smart cover on Amazon?

This one is the only one I can come up with that isn't suspect:
http://www.amazon.com/Apple-Smart-Cover-iPad/dp/B005FUZMGW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1405553816&sr=8-1&keywords=ipad+smart+cover

But, this one
http://www.amazon.com/Apple-Smart-Cover-Leather-Black/dp/B0060GEWFC/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1405553816&sr=8-7&keywords=ipad+smart+cover
Also says company "Apple", as do many others, and is obviously not genuine.

Why on earth do that permit companies to put the company as "Apple" when that isn't true?  Seems a huge issue for such a reputable company...

I'll likely get one at Best Buy or the Apple store to be safe.  I need it to pair with this:
http://www.amazon.com/ZeroChroma-Vario-SC-Case-Stand-Black/dp/B00606TOX2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1405553997&sr=8-1&keywords=zerochroma+ipad

There was a Sony press event last night and many outlets played Remastered, I enjoyed Polygon's impressions on the updated graphics. What makes me nervous, though, is the fact that they're including a 30FPS lock, which indicates a wavering framerate. I'm hoping the lock is geared towards multiplayer...

Thanks, I enjoyed that piece at polygon as well.

I've not owned a sony console since the ps2, but did play UC3 through to completion and it remains in my top 10 favorite games of all time.  I'm as excited to play this on ps4 as I could be if it was a new ip.  Games like this are precisely why I went Sony over MS this time.
