In 2004 I did a bicycle trip from Dieppe across Normandy.  I went into a bookstore while I was in Brighton and bought a map of the area and I pulled that out of my bag and checked roadsigns to make sure I was going the right direction.  That map was pretty well worn after two weeks.  The idea of my phone telling me exactly where I am and exactly where I'm supposed to go seems pretty crazy compared to just a few years ago (and a lot less fun!)

yeah, GPS is nice until it screws up and sends you in the totally opposite direction of where you need to go, or insists that you need to turn left when turning left will put you into a body of water, or the ever lovely 'turn at this exit' just as you are passing said exit.

Gps is funny that way. " why would I do a u turn here? My location is visibly right there!"... That happens pretty frequently. It's more of a assistant than a tool.

Shucks, the downside is that everyone knows my "schedule now".. icon_lol

I don't know enough to weigh in on a good starting age, but whenever they do happen to be old enough, definitely go in and watch a class and see how the instructors handle things.  I still remember touring a few before I signed up for shotokan karate circa age 8 or 9.  Some places were modest facilities that seemed to have good instructors and atmosphere, others... well...

There was this one place that was all glitz and "oh come on" fakeness.  Totally the Cobra Kai dojo.  While other establishments just showed us the facilities and the class that happened to be in session, the Cobra Kai place had a whole prescripted tour.  We went back to see the "master sensei" who had his own zen-like room where he just sat and meditated all day (or made it look like that's all he did).  Then when we got to the main floor, they had people line up and break planks and cinder blocks for our awe and amazement.  If rolling eye smileys had existed back then, I'd have been tossing them out left and right.

Oooh...ahhhh.... Roll Eyes

The original was an extremely well made game, technologically. Very good performance and virtually bug free from what I recall. I liked it (and the sequel) quite a bit and I'm still using my Max Payne mouse pad to this very day. That being said, I have zero interest in playing it on my iTouch.

Enjoy the game, though. Few things are more satisfying than unloading both barrels of the sawed-off into some guys face in super slow-mo.

I'm also still in possession of the mouse pad. I did recently decide to quit using it as it is falling apart;).

I don't see Hirai being able to do much to really change Sony. I think they will be continuing to slog along with the likes of RIM and Nokia. Companies that got complacent and let others "eat their lunch".

I disagree, only because he's already done some major restructuring. He laid off 10,000 employees, and is streamlining the business under the "One Sony" strategy. I'm very optimistic for the future, and for the PS4. 

I see what you did there! Sarcasm! nod

Cage and Keanu are both horrible at fitting into the movie - they stick out like the breakaway section of a wall from 80's cartoons. It's almost the same color, but not enough to not stick out long before. This worked well in The Matrix because he really DIDN'T fit in. Cage could pull that off.

Well, if you don't want to look for another job and you like the place/owner, etc, then you should give the owner a fair chance at fixing it. If they fix it, great. If not, then you should probably look to make a move elsewhere.

He is aware to some degree. But, that being said... I could get her fired by telling a few things... Do I want to do that, yes. Do I want to be THAT person though?

1620  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / So I used to run a winery...EDITED. Now funny. on: April 19, 2012, 01:20:40 AM
Okay. Long story short as the title implies I used to run a winery. I didn't sign up for a manager position, not asked if I wanted it, but rather told I was going to be doing such after the last manager quit. Not a knock per se about the owners, quite the opposite. I like the owners alot that's that.

So after a year and a half of not liking my job/ role in the company I sat down with the owner and discussed that I liked my old job alot more... Which was working in a brewery and doing winery work, not babysitting monkeys or employees as others called them. We decided to try and hire someone to fill my role, and I would resume essentially my old job.

So new girl gets hired, all is good to start. She SEEMED really positive and a hard worker, things are looking up... One would think...

At first it was only me that got treated like shit by her.
Example one: I took a vacation day, she told everyone including the owners that I was a no call, no show...
#2: she had a friends father pass away and after I was willing to switch shifts around to cover for her, she told everyone I wouldn't help her out in a time of need....
#3: we get a shifty after, well every shift. It's one of OUR house made beer and wines. NOT the 8 dollar meads from Michigan. She has been told this rule over and over again, yet still gets away with it.
#4: Yells at me for not completing HER work from Saturday on my Monday shift...
#5: can't find coverage for one of our busy days here on derby day and says she will close early bc she has plans... Without asking the owner...instead of you know, doing your manager duties and just working it...

There are many, many, many more instances. And it's not just me now. People are giving up shifts, she can't replace them and the work environment has turned into making people miserable. The owner has been made aware of some stuff, more is to follow...but any advice, other than murder suicide?slywink. I like this company and my job, but not in this situation. I'd rather not look for a new job bc of some dumb bitch ( I said it!), but really turning unhappy with this going on... Any light bulbs popping up?

I just picked up a 32 gb card... Well, a week ago it was. After that big update for escape plan
and my downloadable game fondness. The 4 gb stick was almost full. I knew that would the case, just not so soon. I only bought the 4 gb because it was the only option and I knew I couldn't bring the system home and NOT play a game until the next day...so I should be set on storage now;).

I went through the same thing a little while ago. The 4GB card came with the bundle and I started off using it. Switched it out with a 32GB card later and it didn't work quite the way I thought it would. Did a full backup of the Vita to my PC, swapped cards and then restored the image. I don't recall the exact specifics, I think any games I had on physical media were not shown until I inserted them again, one by one. All trophies were gone, no longer listed. It wasn't until I played (or at least started) each one again that it did two or three things - the 'desktop' icon came back for games on media, it send out a message that I was playing the game "for the first time" again and then any earned trophies showed up again. Lather, rinse, repeat.

I did it through the ps3. It carried everything over. Saves, settings, patches, and yes trophies. It did not put everything as far as icons back in their place. Everything was just thrown on in a wierd order. Also, my trophies didn't appear under "vita" section until I played them again, but they were still under " psn"section of trophies. And no progress of trophies was lost...I would think the pc transfer would do the same...odd...

I started after 1.4 came out.  I've had a small handful of freezes and it will definitely chop if there's a lot going on, but it's been solid mechanically.  Great game, but the PS 'hot key' system sure does suck for a pure spell caster.

Good to hear. I uninstalled it awhile back after reading all the issues with it. So a clean install update etc. would be the case. If I only beat mass effect 2 soon... Then maybe I'll fire up skyrim b4 I play me3!

since the mid April -end of May 2011,when ...IT happened(not the creepy clown)

June-back end of April attacks i think
July-1 hour
August-11 hours
September-2 hours
October-no idea why or how long it was down for
November-24 hours
December-10 hours
January-13 Hours
February-18 hours
March 1st Postponed to 4th and lasted 15 hours


Look at it this way
In some cases it is not very long,just a few hours,even those lasting a day is a small price to pay i guess as long as what happened this time roughly last year doesn't happen again

however,not sure why XBL doesn't go down as often(just once or twice in the last year IIRC)

I guess it just seem like much at the time. I'm on psn ALOT, but I can live with it being down for maintenance for a few hrs every month it so I guess.

Monaco - JUST LET ME GIVE YOU MY MONEY ALREADY.  I saw it described as Ocean's Eleven meets Gauntlet, and that sounds about right.  4-player cooperative heist game, with great simplistic graphics, slick line-of-sight visual representation, and fast, fun gameplay.  I fell in love with it at last year's PAX, and they've refined and improved everything about it in the last year.  I must have this game.

yeah, it looks very cool.  the main website describes it as 'Co-op Action Stealth Pacman meets Hitman'.  we've been talking about it in the PC forum, but they say it will hit at least one console along with the PC/Mac.


This looks awesome!
