1  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Ebola in Texas on: September 30, 2014, 08:59:32 PM
Just thought all should be aware that haven't seen the news.

http://www.wfaa.com/story/news/health/2014/09/29/dallas-presbyterian-hospital-ebola-patient-isolation/16460629/

In Dallas, I realize we're far better equipped at handling this, but thought everyone should .

So stoked for this, and perplexed how ATB cannot tell the difference between 60 and 30 FPS.   I get not being able to tell resolution differences all that much, but I find FPS differences to be quiet jarring actually

Good to hear gentleman, I'll tackle it this weekend, then start the dlc.

Absolutely not because I'm not eligible for an upgrade, as my wife will be next month and will be getting the 6.  It's a great device, but personally after having larger devices, including the One and the Evo before it, I'm more inclined to feel the 5s is a perfect size. 

Any mobile work I do is done on my iPad, which is enhanced by my jailbroke iPhone, so much.that I'm happy to wait.   

Plus, I wear a suit every day and bigger is not better for me.

I'm near the end where you play as Ellie and am facing the boss guy (can't think of his name), I'm out of ammo and can't figure out how to beat him.  Every restart has me out of ammo, what is the catch?  I've not looked at walkthroughs at all.  Thanks .

ritt, you could always utilize the 14 day exchange policy and get the 6, just a thought.   I went from the 4s to the HTC One and felt that was too big.  I can't imagine carrying the 6+

I can't even log in.  Some sort of multiple emails thing.  They keep telling me they've sent an email to fix the problem, but I have yet to see it.

My response to this type of thing may well be completely irrational .  It is as follows :  if you can't figure this out, forget it.   I'll quietly laugh while I read about another failed app.

NFL has been sidestepping this stuff for years. Glad that it's dropping on them with the fury.  However, not everyone is at fault for every single player's lifestyle.
Agree completely.

I did this as well 2 weeks ago now and had some of your same fears.  We're now 90% unpacked, which is due to my lovely wife a lot more than me.   I  went with a moving company, but still on the day of the move I was stressed and exhausted.  It gets better, just look forward to enjoying you're new home.

We are having a birthday here tomorrow for an 82 year old with 15 guests , so it's possible to get it all done! 

I agree with you about repairs though....  I made the mistake of utilize our realtors "home services" department, which claim they will handle they setup of all utilities.  Let's just leave it at that department didn't do shit and I wish I'd gone with my guy and done it all myself.  All are setup now, but the water was cut off for a brief moment, which now results in a fog horn sound when we flush the master toilet.  Ugh.

The enormous amount of thugs in the league is screwing up my fantasy league, that's for sure.  Innocent until proven guilty and all that of course.  One guy in my league had both Ray Rice and AP.

I'm still so burnout on FPS shooters that I know this isn't for me at all, not any more.

I want it to succeed very well though, for a handful of reasons (I.e. Shares owned!). 

Hope you all and the rest of the world enjoy the hell out of it.  From playing the beta I do have a hard time understanding how this game cost. $500 million...

Ha, I suck at arena. Six is my best run, but usually I win 2-3.
If you only win 2-3 itís still a better value than buying packs outright.

Very true, better value, and typically fun smile

I suck at Arena too.  My best in constructed is 11, and I agree that this season is tough so far.

It will also still have the most polished apps, which is ultimately all I care about now.

I've owned many Amdroids and fine them fine, but when I switched from the Evo to the 4s r was night and day.

Later I switched my 4s for the HTC One, kept it for 13 days and traded for the 5S.

The idea that it not require a phone is ludicrous.

It may be ludicrous with today's technology, but in my opinion it's the only way these things will ever be worth a damn. I'm not spending $350 to carry around a piece of equipment that offers the same functionality as my phone as long as I'm also carrying around my phone.

Wake me up in a few years when I get most of the functionality of today's smartphones on my wrist, without being tethered to a brick. Heck, I don't even need Dick Tracy voice calls - if I could get email, texts, and GPS for fitness apps without being tied to another device I'd be interested.

It's just disappointing because this is not the future. This is a poor man's simulation of the future.

I don't actually disagree with that.

I watched the whole season. To me this is a show that would have been much better on a network like HBO or Showtime. Let them really go for the brutality. Still it was worth watching. I'll watch season 2 for sure.

I missed this thread the first time around but find this comment a bit disturbing.  The show is plenty freaking graphic and is made all the better by the fact it's not on HBO.  Don't get me wrong I like GOT better, but only because I like the story better.  Not because the T&A HBO insists on shoving down our throat.  I find it hard to believe one that isn't disturbed in the head wants to see more brutality.   

Brutality in TV or movies doesn't bother me, but I don't seek it out and by all means don't think Vikings is less of a show by showing what they show (For those that haven't watched it, it pushes the limit for cable, which is why I'm all the more perplexed).

Just saying.

My comment was based on season 1, season 2 was much more graphic. It's not that I want violence and gore for the sake of it. I want it to properly portray the brutality of the characters. Imagine how much less of an impact the flaying scene would have had if they cut away when he first start slicing in. It was really disturbing but IMO it had to be.

If you're going to show Vikings, show them how they really would have acted, don't give me the Disney version. 

Point taken and I agree to a point.  I personally think Vikings is a great example of a show on cable done right, pushing the boundaries just enough to get the subject across. 

I wasn't trying to be argumentative, but when a show I want to watch is on HBO I don't cheer, because I know they'll go overboard with things just because they can.

Vikings is refreshing and I really hope the history channel does more shows with such high production standards and great acting.

Man, that's a shame about the NHL title.  Now if someone else would pick up the puck and run with it.  

I'm a console version behind, and since all the sports titles were abandoned on the PC anyway, I'm not purchasing a thing.
It's EA, shouldn't be a surprise.  Bad company, good games here and there, but bad company.
