Linksys - Dual-Band Wireless-N Router with 4-Port Ethernet Switch
  

Ehh??

Oh silly router , you broke my first post!

ATB, thx for cursing mine too! Tongue My good old linksys also pooped the bed. My ps4 wouldn't connect to it, which I've never seen before. After a reboot it worked for a little while. Now my iphone sees it, but, also won't connect !!! It's not my net, it's the router. Any ideas on a fix, or more realistically a replacement without breaking the bank? Also, I'd love to be able to set it up wirelessly.

Ha, you guys would go nuts if you had to sleep where I do. Recently moved into a much smaller apartment than I had for quite awhile and had to put my 2 computer desks in the bedroom. It's quite a light show, with the modem, router, NAS, and various standby lights. The modem is the worse since it always has flashing lights going. Unless I tossing and turning it doesn't usually bother me. If it does, I arrange an office chair to block my direct eye site at the modem, but it still does a good job lighting up the wall next to it.

Trippy! Tongue

Formytroubles™

Yes but they gave you 6 what instead of 2 what?
if I had to guess, GB/month?  

I do like the jokes spawned from the question though.  maybe it's donuts.

Sorry for the tease then slow response. They bumped it up from 2 gb to 6 for the same price. They said they had a offer going on. That's all I know. We had unlimited also, never came close to 2
Gb even. We use wifi ALOT.

I just got my new Talon from Falcon Northwest about a month ago and I'm very happy with it. It's my second Falcon NW computer, I got my first one, a Mach V, in early 2003 and used it till 2011, although I did have to add more RAM and upgrade the video card. It ran without a problem, I just had to finally replace it because the processor just wasn't able to handle anything modern. After that I got a Hewlett Packard office computer with a entry level video card, but that was a mistake, so that's why I got the Talon.

Yup, it's expensive, but then I figure I'm worth it icon_biggrin. The nice thing about Falcon NW, the computers come with NO crapware, they are tested before they are shipped and the quality, at least in the two I've owned, is top notch. They come with a leather binder thing with all the the extra cables, manuals and disks that came with the individual components:




That little red thing on the right in the last photo is the recovery USB. Just before it's shipped, they image the OS drive and put it on a thumb drive, so if you need or just want to get things back to the original state they came in, just plug her in and follow the directions.

The computer itself it pretty modest, I don't go for painted cases and the like:



I haven't had to use Falcon NW support so far, but on my first computer I did have some questions. They have their own support guys, right at their location, and what's nice when I called was I got a machine, left my number and question, and they called me back pretty quickly on their own dime and the guy I talked to actually knew his stuff. That was in 2003 but they say they still supply support that way.

Let me know if you have any other questions about Falcon or my Talon.




If money isn't a question. That's the best you can buy. Period. I had fnw years ago and the product and the company are simply outstanding.

As far as I know, zero chance of this happening. You have to pay an unsubsidized price for a new phone or give up the unlimited data.

Yup, I just went through the exact same process about 4 months ago with Verizon.  I actually held onto my phone for about two years as things slowly fell apart on it (volume control stopped working, etc.) because I didn't want to lose that unlimited plan.  Finally the charge port on it stopped working and I had no choice.  When getting the new phone, they told me it wasn't possible to keep my unlimited data plan.




Same here. Exactly. They did give me 6 instead of 2 for my troubles. They said they had some offer running for people in this situation. This was only about 2 months ago.

So far I'm not really a fan of the combat in this game.  It seems like the melee isn't nearly powerful enough to be useful most of the time, and I don't really like all of the "shooting" and now I'm constantly getting shot from a long way away. 


Man, if you're in the market for stronger melee, the Neon power set is made to order.  Flicker-speed light tackles are one-hit kills on the regular grunts, plus a sweet Force Push ability for bowling over groups or blasting aside destructible cover.  And that 80's light blade is the MC Skat Kat of the upgrade tree.

This game is tits.

To touch on a few subjects...

The touchpad use for me is perfect . It takes no extra effort to swipe it. Double button presses are another option, one that I hate. I'd always, somehow, not get it right. Human error, whatever. Not cool. I've seen it before. Trying to do "A" option but end up with "B". Call me clumsy.

Graphics are amazing period.

Side stuff to do . Awesome . Maybe repetitive, but completely fun and optional even if I personally can't skip. If you'd like, skipable.

Loving it.

Got mine tonight.  Waiting to try it until kids are asleep.

The metascore has dropped to 80%.     Not even close to a system seller and borderline purchase for me.   I usually only get titles that are 85 and above.

Uh huh, sure you do.   Roll Eyes  Can you quit this barely disguised console warrior nonsense already?


Yeah, don't even bother reading reviews on this as far as I'm concerned now. For me at
Least, if you enjoyed 1 and 2 this is a serious no brainer. I acquired a ps4 at launch, but if I didn't already have one. This would sell a system.

Btw, my buddy in Colorado got this delivered today to his house from eBay for 55 shipped. Wtf is that about? I saw him playing it all night long . Why would the seller sell it under market value and pay for shipping? Like I said, wtf?

Lucky guy! Yeah, lots of people have the game early it seems from a certain seller on eBay. Though, when I saw the listing he was selling it for $10 over retail price. There are already two people on my friends list playing it.

Quote from: hepcat on March 14, 2014, 06:18:13 PM

So, I work with a guy who's a staunch tea party member.  I get along with him because I avoid getting into political discussions with him.  Work and politics, that's a bad combo.  

However, he friended me on facebook soon after I started with the company.  Not knowing any better, I accepted (saying no would've been kind of rude, I believed).  After about the 37th status update that found its way to my facebook update page detailing how Obama was evil, the liberals were trying to destroy the country and how guns should be mandatory for every citizen, I set up a filter so I wouldn't see them anymore.

Before I did so though, I noticed that his 10 year old son was spouting an awful lot of the same rhetoric as his father in the replies to these updates on his dad's page...and I mean a lot.  

Flash foward to this week.  My coworker informs me that his son (now 12) is being suspended yet again because he's been acting up.  I ask what he's been doing and he informs that it was all bullshit.  He's been bullying some kids he feels are "inferior" (the kid's words, I guess).  Then he tells me that his son was also telling his teachers that some of the text books they were using in class couldn't be trusted because they were written by Muslims.  Then he laughed while regaling me about how his son was chastised for telling another kid to "stop acting like a chink".

I'm flabbergasted because he seems genuinely amused by these actions.  Of course he's upset that his son is being punished, but he seems to feel the kid is just being precocious.  

I know he loves his kids, but how could he possibly feel that he's not failing as a parent right now?  




Not the right answer, but...It sounds like they are two individuals that need the shit beat out of them. You know, to reset their moral compass.
