I know it wasn't expected but I'm still disappointed by the lack of a new iPhone.

I'd really like to upgrade my 4 but I know the moment I order one they'll announce the 5S or whatever.

Quote from: ATB on June 06, 2013, 06:06:18 PM

I agree and my  quote above shows clearly that bush started this...and it also shows that obama has clearly expanded it's reach and impact on the american citizenry. Also, the WH is playing defense against it NOW. So, it counts for this Admin!

Also 2008 Obama explicitly ran on a platform opposing these sorts of abuses.  He doesn't get a "Get Out of Scandal Free" card just because the previous administration abused  power - we put him into office in hopes that he would act differently.

He hasn't.

The issue with these counties is they mostly relied on the timber industry which is all but dead.

So for years they've relied on handouts from the federal government.  Those handouts were extended several times but finally dried up.

When levies are placed on the ballot to increase property taxes to fund public safety they get voted down despite these counties having some of the lowest tax rates in Oregon.

I'm very sorry for the woman who was attacked but I've got no sympathy for anti-tax zealots who expect a high level of government service but are unwilling to pay the taxes to fund it and expect the federal government (ie everyone else) to pay for it..  Fuck those people.

I'm lvl 28 now and the Nightmare Lockbox is the only pay to play thing I've seen. And really in the end that's mostly cosmetic (e.g. different mount).

Is there a way to acquire additional bags without paying $10 for the 24 slot bag?

I'm only level 8 but the lack of bag space is already frustrating.

My favorite bit from Rubio's response:

More government isn’t going to help you get ahead. It’s going to hold you back. More government isn’t going to create more opportunities. It’s going to limit them.

I believe in federal financial aid. I couldn’t have gone to college without it.

Hey where'd everybody go?

It was the Office of the Director of National Intelligence that took the words “al Qaeda” and “terrorism” out of Rice’s talking points for those Sept. 16 talk shows. It found also that both the CIA and the FBI approved of these edits, following standard operating procedure. The report states emphatically: “The White House or State Department did not make those changes.” One source told the network’s Margaret Brennan that the controversy over the word choice employed by Rice has come to the intel world as “a bit of a surprise.” Another source said that there were “legitimate intelligence and legal issues to consider, as is almost always the case when explaining classified assessments publicly.”

I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't get the outrage. Aside from some poor judgment, questionable decisions, and misinformation that became clear with hindsight, what exactly is the scandal supposed to be?

Because Benghazi!

Obviously there's a huge temptation to turn any incident that could reflect badly on the opposition's government, such as the killing of an ambassador in a terrorist attack, into some kind of scandal. But this attempt is just absurd. The strategy here has been to shout "Benghazi Benghazi Benghazi Benghazi!" until the public begins to think there's something fishy going on with Benghazi, and then move on to targeting administration figures because...Benghazi! If this actually works, we are all still in kindergarten.

Not sure how else it would work...

I guess I just figured a new feature would be useful and not useless.

I think it's pretty useful smile

It's sure been useful in Chrome for quite a long time (although mobile support was only recently added).   icon_biggrin

I got the black 16gig WiFi model.

I have a 16g iPad1 and I've never regretted not getting 3G.  99% of the time I use it at home on my WiFi network.

I don't store music on the device and don't travel so much that I need more than one or two movies on it at a time so the extra space isn't worth $100 to me.

My 6 year old will be surprised when I tell her the iPad1 is now hers.

Quote from: rshetts2 on January 21, 2012, 02:05:12 PM

I took a moment this morning to browse the TOR forums.  Im seriously beginning to wonder if there isnt some kind of sponsored negative trolling campaign being supported by other interests.  I can understand that the game may not be everyones cup of tea but why do people waste their on the forums if they hate the game so much.

The WoW forums have been bashing the game for 7 years even while millions happily played the game.  It just seems to be the nature of "official" forums.

Has anyone had trouble with the game crashing when you try to exit?  Since the last major patch when I hit exit it just hangs and I have to end-task to kill it.

It's not much of a problem at this point since I'm only logging in twice a week or so.  For whatever reason this game just isn't grabbing me.  I think part of it is the loot system - with orange gear drops become pretty meaningless and I'm a loot whore.

I thought only the companions can be the crafters. We choose what we want, missions,gathering,fabrication,and the rest is done by companions upon our orders? No?

Yes but you can only learn 3 professions per character - one crafting and two gathering/mission.  Your companions do the crafting/gathering but the "crew skill" is tied to the player.

OCD types like me tend to make crafting alts.  Killjoys like Blizzard put level requirements on crafting to discourage crafting alts.
112  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Star Wars: The Old Republic announced on: December 16, 2011, 11:21:31 PM
Has anyone put any time into figuring out crafting?

I'm trying to decide if it's feasible to have my main as a gatherer and a few crafter alts produce the items.  I don't know if crafting levels are restricted by character level - in WoW you had to be a certain character level to be able to advance in crafting.

Are crafted items mostly BoP or BoE?

I've read that you can find rare patterns with some of the gathering professions - are those BoE or BoP?

Thanks to anyone who knows more than the tiny bit I know.

I kind of liked WoW's nearly unlimited character creation (I think the limit was 50 across all servers).

Diplomatic victory is becoming the only victory it seems in my games.   And yea, I a sort of a lotta tech, lotta war kind of player.   

Anyone has any hints or suggestions on countering diplomatic victories let me know.   Sometimes my was mongering makes the city states so I cant even bribe my way out.     I like diplomatic victory, but I do not want it to be the only victory condition.

When I start a new game I go into "advanced setup" and turn off diplomatic victories.

If you'd rather leave them on I think the trick is to ally with city states when UN-vote time comes up.
