1081  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Flight 587...Anyone else think this is BS? on: October 26, 2004, 05:00:33 PM
http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2004-10-26-flight-587_x.htm?POE=NEWISVA


So they are saying it's the co-pilot's fault because he appiled the rudder, which then in turn ripped the tail off.

BULLSHIT!!!   :evil:  :evil:

I love this quote,  "Benzon also said that the rudder control system on the aircraft is sensitive at higher air speeds, which is potentially hazardous. "

Does he think the public are idiots?  Do you see airliners falling out of the sky when rudder is applied at 500mph?  In this instance, Flight 587 couldn't have been going faster than 300mph, seeing that it just took off.  AND they expect us to think that turbulance from a 747 caused this whole problem?  You gotta love the spin the government feeds us.

No Cleric....you do not need to be connected for single player after the initial activation.  Nor do you need to be connected for a LAN multiplayer game.  But if you're never connected, you won't get any patches from what I understand.

I still don't agree with having to connect to the net once.  Those FAQ's are ridiculous.  If you don't have net access, you should take your PC to work or school?  Are they out of their mind????  Just to play a fricking game?  F that.

Garcia might be gay, but he's no pussy.  He took a hell of a shot on that last TD.
1085  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Ashlee Simpson on SNL - what a moron! on: October 25, 2004, 01:41:00 PM
AND.....she blamed her band for her own deception.  No class.  That's where my hate comes from.
1086  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Ashlee Simpson on SNL - what a moron! on: October 24, 2004, 10:47:41 PM
What a BITCH!  I'd whoop her wannabe ass if I was unfortunate enough to be in her band.
1087  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Ashlee Simpson on SNL - what a moron! on: October 24, 2004, 10:06:06 PM
SNL also needs to take some heat for this.  They should simply not allow lip-synch artists to appear on the show.  They obviously knew how she operates.

What if you don't have the internet?  How do you register/play HL2?  Are they going to have a 800 number to call ala Microsoft?

I just need something to get me by until the real one shows up.

Close......those big wide wine glasses usually used for Cabernet.
1092  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / The world is over. I broke my Directv/Tivo remote. on: October 22, 2004, 04:09:38 PM
I need one that controls the Directv/Tivo all in 1 unit.  The remote needs to have the "Directv" button.  Found an off brand at Circuit City.
1093  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / The world is over. I broke my Directv/Tivo remote. on: October 22, 2004, 02:39:58 AM
Jshaw.....did that instantly.  Did not help.  I ordered an OEM replacement off the web, but you guessed it.....it won't be here until next week.  I may have to go to the Sports Bar on Sunday to see all of the games, but I will feel like a Jedi without his lightsaber.
1094  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / The world is over. I broke my Directv/Tivo remote. on: October 22, 2004, 02:17:57 AM
You don't know what hell is until you are without your Directv/Tivo remote.

Scenario:

Sitting in my big poofy chair, drinking a marvelous Merlot.  I set the wine glass on the table to my left.  After perusing the 20 episodes of Blind Date/Elimidate that I have not yet watched, I sit the remote on the elevated arm of the poofy chair......next to the table with the marvelous Merlot.

Phone rings......

I get up to answer the phone and the remote takes a Greg Louganis into the deep end of the glass, half sticking out as if it was a silver fish bobber on steroids. Where was this skill when I tried to throw the ping pong ball into the goldfish bowl at the church festival?

Utter and sheer terror overcome me..........I know what the outcome is to be.  The remote is DOA.

No channel changing, no surfing the "Now Playing" list, no skipping ANYTHING.  Sunday Ticket is less than 72 hours away.  My life is over.........
1095  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Apprentice 10/21 "Exorcism of the Gerbil" SPOILERS on: October 22, 2004, 02:00:02 AM
Thank you JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    biggrin

They finally got rid of The Gerbil (Stacy).  Well deserved and WAAAAAAAY too late.  She needs to learn to shut her damn trap and stop being so stubborn.

She bugged the hell out of me from Day 1.  See ya sweetie.
1096  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What if Half-life 2 uses Starforce? on: October 21, 2004, 05:03:27 PM
Yes Jeff.  Separate partition (dual boot) for a second install of XP.  That way the Starforce games can screw themselves up and not mess with my main XP gaming/internet/CD Burning partition.
1097  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What if Half-life 2 uses Starforce? on: October 20, 2004, 09:36:47 PM
Don't care.  I have a separate XP partition just for Starforce games.
1098  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Just beat Second Sight, and it's my Game Story of the Year.. on: October 20, 2004, 05:15:09 PM
WOW!...thanks for the free one-day shipping tip.  Just ordered.
1099  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / EQ 2 Beta - am I being paranoid? on: October 20, 2004, 05:04:30 PM
I never get in either to ANY that I sign up for.  I can't imagine what they are looking for in the applications you fill out.  I'm starting to wonder if they just randomly pick "winners".

1101  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HL1 in Source not all it's cracked up to be on: October 15, 2004, 03:25:06 PM
I think I'm going to cancel my 60.00 CE order from Walmart (it's not that price anymore).  Why spend the extra 10 bucks for basically nothing.  I don't care about the T shirt or book.  I ordered it for the "updated" version of HL1, which really doesn't exist.
1102  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HL1 in Source not all it's cracked up to be on: October 15, 2004, 03:11:10 PM
Here's how EBWorld is advertising HL Source in the CE:

Half-Life: Source - Digitally remastered version of the original acclaimed PC game

I'd say that's a bunch of BS and VERY misleading.
1103  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HL1 in Source not all it's cracked up to be on: October 15, 2004, 03:06:38 PM
I thought the same until I read my PC Lamer.  VERY underwhelming.  New physics?  Who cares......
1104  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / We're having a little girl on: October 14, 2004, 11:43:36 PM
We just had a little girl (our first child) 2 months ago today.  I can honestly say that I could not possibly love her any more than I do.  I was ecstatic to find out we were having a girl.  She is so sweet and adorable.

I really don't care for baby boys or little boys because they act like girls.  Why not get the real thing?
1105  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / O'REILLY HIT WITH SEX HARASS SUIT on: October 14, 2004, 07:37:17 PM
This chick could have hung up the phone at any time but yet she kept listening, on multiple occasions?  BS.

As pointed out above, she kept going to dinner with the guy.  She's full of it.
1106  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [NFL] ESPN's Mike Patrick in the booth again? on: October 11, 2004, 01:54:11 AM
Maguire is a total idiot.  The guy is SO negative about everything.  I'm so glad he isn't on my ESPN NFL 2k5 Xbox game.
1107  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone else having problems with Gone Gold? (Pt. 2) on: October 10, 2004, 09:04:48 PM
Man...what a weekend from hell.  First my SBC/Yahoo DSL has been down since Friday and I just got it back now.  Then no response from Gone Gold......so I journey over here.  Doesn't sound too good for us GG'ers.  I hate when crap like this happens and there is absolutely no warning.

Good to see that a temp/permanent home may be in place.
