7481  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Google Ads are uncanny... on: April 21, 2009, 06:04:27 PM
I went to PeteRock's profile to see if I had missed any of his entertaining musings.  The top ad box had several ads, most of them under the topics of:

  • Stop neighbor's dog barking
  • Neighbor complaint letter
  • Is your HOA company ignoring you?

While none of the top page of his posts have been about these topics, they certainly have been on his mind in the recent past.  Makes me almost afraid to see what some of the other members ads are pulling up...   paranoid

shouldn't Anakin be in the Judas spot?
I only see characters from the original films.  And I think a lot more people would want to put Lucas in the Judas seat.
Anakin was in the original films.

Yeah, okay.  But he didn't betray Luke, so he's really not appropriate for the Judas spot in that painting.  Lando would be more appropriate in this picture. 

Is that supposed to be Wedge above Lucas?

My sister's house has is a 2-story + basement.  To get their inline working, my Dad installed a pass-through filter in the basement and drilled a hole in the kitchen floor to pass the tube up to get it to the freezer. 

I just don't think you guys are trying hard enough.  icon_wink

That's asking a lot.  Even The Fabulous One™ doesn't have one of those.

You can always run hot water over the bottom to loosen the cubes, but this may result in them freezing together once they go into the tray.  I've also hears that an application of cooking spray will help.  But they you have fatty ice cubes.

There are silicone ice trays now that supposedly don't have this problem.

Assassin's Apprentice

A much different book than the title suggests.  It was free for the Kindle app for my iPhone.  It was an excellent read and kept me reading past my bedtime on several nights.  It's certainly not as bloodthirsty as the title suggests.  It certainly was a good enough read to sell me the second book through the same method for $6.39, 20% off the paperback price.

Thanks for the nightmares, Koz.  I had almost blocked out the COBOL/JCL/CICS semesters I had to take in college... in the late 90s.

I was in the first C class at my school - up until that point, it was all Ada.  Pretty awesome if you want to go into Air Traffic Control software.  Not so much if you want a job.

We were all told that JC Penney still used it.  Not that any of us really wanted to go work for them, but there still jobs... Roll Eyes

Is this real box art?  sweet.

I notice the RP rating, so I can assure you in the strictest sense that it's not.  In a less nit-picky vein, I also notice the lack of the Harmonix logo on the Wii boxes.

I agree.  I somehow wound up with a copy of the TPB for Death of Superman.  It was a complete deus ex machina moment with no prelude, no back story and was handled badly. 
7511  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Pirates Seize Ship Crewed by Americans on: April 15, 2009, 05:36:01 PM

Texas should leave the USA and rejoin Mexico.  It would improve the IQ score of both countries.

7513  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / GameStop puts the screws to overworked Demigod developers on: April 15, 2009, 03:32:31 AM
GameStop broke the street date, which lead to even more overtime for Demigod developers as they had to get all the MP servers up and running.

And for the conspiracy theorist...

Quote
But it's the fact that Demigod is being heavily pushed as a digital download that's got people speculating that GameStop purposely botched the launch date in defiance of Stardock's digital distribution platform, Impulse. Either way, the slip-up forced the game's support team to configure the multiplayer servers for the unexpected amount of early players over the weekend, right after "a good solid eight weeks of massive crunch."
7514  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Gamestop Article on: April 15, 2009, 03:28:43 AM
If someone want to rob a Gamestop, they are going to rob a GameStop.  Shoplifting, on the other hand, is probably lower this way.

And adding display artwork is going to cost money that they would then have to recoup elsewhere.

Lemme help.  To avoid issues with hotlinking, I have started using imageshack, which will allow you to "upload" a file direct from a URL.  It's all in the radio buttons.  Same caveat applies, no viewing the properties.

I can't even look at the picture...

Quoting your post on the other hand, ruined the whole thing.
7517  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Cross Roads of Life on: April 15, 2009, 01:45:32 AM
Can't say that I've been in a similar situation, but if the path to what you want to do seems doable, then I'd say do it.  No job will ever be all gumdrops and roses, but you can certainly improve things if you're not happy.  While the future is not guaranteed, it's a whole lot better to have things to look forward to than always look back on opportunities lost.
