Shadowrun: Into the Shadows

A neat little set of stories that Michael A. Stackpole ties together into a good story of Seattle in 2050.

I came in second in playing the Firefly boardgame.  Tomorrow, we're going to scope out the Fort Worth Stockyards and see if we want to have our engagement photos taken there.

Turn on your status bar.  When I was having HDD issues, it would hang on Waiting for cache...  I've also seen the AdBlockPro hang things up early in a session.

Status bar?  What status bar?

If you hover over a link and can see a preview of the address at the bottom of your browser, it's already on.  

If you use IE (poor bastard), go under View | Toolbars | Status Bar

If you use Chrome and can't see it, try this.

I downloaded Conficker, then installed Cryptolocker to see if the botnet owner would pay the ransom to keep my machine.

Red Robin uses Yum! as their catch phrase.  If you want a burger place where you can throw peanut shells on the floor, go to Five Guys. 

Personally, I prefer Texas Roadhouse to get my peanut littering done.

Rather than roll back my Shadowrun game, last night I fired up XCOM for the first time since I played the demo way back when.  Similar combat, different story, deeper game mechanics.

Tried to hit Wendy's at lunch rush, but the lines were substantial.  I walked across the lot to Church's, which had no line, and no cars in the drive through.  So a 4-piece chicken strip meal was had and consumed.

Thought cross your mind as to why there may not have been a line...  paranoid

It did.  But I like a little danger in my life.  But only a little.

No, it just makes you unempathetic and self absorbed.  God forbid anyone that doesn't belong to your group get recognition or acceptance, especially when they've been legally and socially ostracized for centuries.

Maybe.

So how long do you plan on playing the victim card in life?

Gabe of Penny Arcade posted some more about his Surface 3 today. He basically finds it almost unusable for drawing.

While I will only really use the pen for OneNote, which it seems to work fine with, this scares me. Is it a software problem that they can fix? Or is it a hardware, which will mean MS will be quick to push out a new version to fix it? Would be quite disappointed if its the later causing my system will be quickly outdated.

Update

He was using Photoshop, which is apparently 'experimental'.  He's had better luck using Manga Studio 5.0.4.

Completely wrong, eh?  Let's see what they have to say:

Quote
In a viewpoint published on July 1 in JAMA Pediatrics, Dr. David S. Ludwig, an endocrinologist at Boston Children's Hospital, and Dr. Walter C. Willet, Fredrick John Stare professor of epidemiology and nutrition chair at the Harvard School of Public Health in Cambridge, Mass., questioned why low-fat milk was given the OK over the whole milk option.

"There's never been such a strong evidence base for these recommendations," Ludwig told the Boston Globe. "We're not arguing that milk should be eliminated from the diet, but that a broader range of recommendations might be more appropriate."
...
The authors point out that there are only a few clinical trials that have looked at the benefits of reduced-fat milk compared to whole milk. Most people just assume the lower-fat milk has fewer calories, which theoretically decreases total caloric intake and lessens weight gain.

However, the researchers said that just because someone lowers fat intake doesn't necessarily mean that it will help with losing the pounds.

So you're stating that two doctors publishing a viewpoint, in other words, an opinion, mean that the people on the other side of the discussion are completely wrong?  When not even the authors state definitively that it's wrong and there are no studies to back up their assertion?

Go buy a dictionary and learn some critical thinking skills.
