I had to troubleshoot a Microsoft mouse I got for my mother one time because the CD installed the management software, but not, y'know, the driver.  It happens.

I dropped the option last night.  And noticed that my e-mail mentioned the end of April, while my acct change is effective in the middle of the month.

Skeet Ulrich is a failed clone of Johnny Depp, best known (to me) for his roles in Scream and Jericho.

But but but they've added Facebook Connect where you can share your movie ratings!  Surely the BR fee is more than reasonable to support the spread of such cutting-edge technology!

7378  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Nutflex raising price for blu ray rentals on: March 30, 2009, 09:16:31 PM
I'm seriously considering dropping the BR option until later in the game, maybe having a BR month where I pay the extra three bucks and just go hog-wild on watching nothing but BR titles for the month.  Given that I have 80% of my titles on DVD only and am sporadic at best at getting through my queue, I might as well save the money.

Info on Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust
Quote
Box Office Bust promises open-world sand-box gameplay including exploration, platforming, racing and puzzle-solving. As with other games in the series, it will feature humor, beautiful women and mature themes, although, unlike Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude, this game will contain no nudity.

Then what's the freaking point?

For extra cords, it was recommended that I shop at MeritLine.  I have not as of yet purchased anything there yet, so I can not speak from experience.  The site was mentioned last week at PC World in reference to HDMI cables (along with perennial forum favorite MonoPrice).

Just watched the premiere on ABC's site since I missed it.  Have the next two on DVR and will definitely be sticking with it and hoping that it holds up.

Since we aren't getting a Rock Band 3 this year I'm glad this patch is coming.

Damn, denog.  Let me finish RB2 before we get a third one.  There's no chance that I'll be going back to work on RB1.

I have the Carcassone demo, but have yet to try it.  I have seen and heard good things about it from the tabletop version, as I have a strong tabletop history, but I just haven't gotten around to firing it up.
7389  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: "Best" Buy Managers violate price match, get bonuses on: March 27, 2009, 10:02:01 PM

The only time I ever asked about it, I was told that internet pricing was exempt from their policy. Price comparison is pretty difficult if you exclude the internet. So I walked out, and bought whatever it was online.

That wouldn't meet their "local' qualification.

Here's the store policy from the website.

Quote
Store Price Guarantee

Two more great reasons to buy with confidence at Best Buy.
If you are about to make a purchase and discover a lower advertised price offered by a local retail competitor on the same available brand and model, let us know and we'll match that price on the spot.

Already bought? We'll refund you the price difference from our own sale price, or 110% of the difference from our competitor's sale price, during the return and exchange period on your product.

Either way, simply bring in proof of price while that lower price is in effect.

Best Buy Puerto Rico Stores have their own store price guarantee. Also see our BestBuy.com Price Matching/Price Guarantee policy.

Exclusions:
The Price Guarantee does not apply to our or our competitors' free offers, limited-quantity items, items for sale November 28th & 29th, 2008, open-box items, clearance items, Outlet Center items, mail-in offers, financing, bundle offers or pricing errors.

What is considered a local retail competitor?
A retail store located in the same market area as your local Best Buy store.

Addressing the quoted memo, different model is covered, which most rational people would expect.  Out of stock would *appear* to be addressed by "available."  Free widget would fall under bundle offers.  I guess a warehouse store would be an "Outlet Center?"  Limited quanitit is covered.  Competitor across town would depend on the definition of market area, not something likely to be an argument where proof could be produced, although my argument would be if there were only one Best Buy in town, then the entire town is their market area.  The below cost item does not seem to be covered directly.  

Then again, I'm sure any customer-oriented retailer wouldn't look really good if internal documents about customer relations got out, they'd all look pretty bad.  I can certainly call some from memory from my time in the call center business that wouldn't look good when broadcast on the nightly news.

I hereby downgrade my outrage.

Bear in mind I've had my 360 for just about a year.  I'm late to the party in a lot of ways. 

According to the almight wiki, Uno came out in May of 2006, a year and a half before I found my way out of a number of bad situations and into a better financial position.

Yeah, you're back on West Coast time for the next 7 months...

Peggle sounds good.  Uno's an old family favorite, but I don't think I want to swing another purchase this pay period.

Firing trumps annual reviews, but not by much.  I was luckily able to have attendance be most of my terminations, which is easy.  Getting your paperwork trail long enough to fire for performance is a long headache. 

Personally, having to fire a friend for performance would make me angry because they didn't consider me enough of a friend to straighten up their act and perform like they were supposed to.  That shows a lack of respect for you in that they didn't take what you said seriously and thought they could skate anyway.  And that would be my response to any co-worker that brought up the issue to me. 

Best friend or worst enemy, nobody is worth me losing my job. 
7398  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Burn, Zombie, Burn! [PSN] on: March 27, 2009, 03:17:42 PM
Blame it on their insistence that they charge developers for all the stuff that is downloaded from them.

I played the heck out of the board game during my first year of college (1993-94).  A few years ago, I picked up the two copies of the board game (one for spares, which was good, as the first one was missing one of the royal chits) and a copy of the computer game in box.  I know I have the game installed on my machine, but I've moved twice since then.  Let me see if I can find the box with all the stuff and I'll see what I can do.  Here is the list of copy protection answers from the game (hosted by Wizards of the Coast, oddly enough).
