7641  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Fall 2009 TV Schedules - what will you be watching? on: May 19, 2009, 07:31:49 PM

I'm waiting for the site I usually get my tv info from to put together a nice graphical representation o f the schedule and then I'll post what I'm watching.  Much easier to look at than multiple lists.

You'll share, yes?

Obama submitted for another $2 billion for NASA, 1 from the spending bills and the 2nd in FY 10 spending.

I will have an in-depth review later.  Every year, I do up a spreadsheet to lay out what I want to watch and have to make some decisions due to DVR 2-program limitations.  I may have to start a retrospective and show you what I was interested in at the start, what got cancelled out from under me, and what I dropped quickly.

I think one year, my TV spreadsheet had me listed at 40 hours a week.  That did not last long at all.

Thanks.  I felt kinda bad on being such a creampuff in our first few games... smile

Looking back through it, move 21 was a big blunder on my part.  I took a pawn with my bishop that immediately pinned that bishop to the queen, which lead to its loss without answer on your 22nd move.  That put you ahead on pieces and it was a long downhill slide after that.

Meet the Robinsons was better than Ratatouille.  I saw them both at a double feature. 

Up looks fantastic and I will be at the theater to see it in short order after release.  My sister is all agog about it as well.

Yeah, getting Godzilla stomped repeatedly has a way of smashing insights into your head.  As much fun as watching you chase me around the board would be, I'm going to resign our game.  No point in wasting both our times as you shepherd me off to a corner to checkmate me.

I went the chronological route, since the Tawny Man stuff is set and written after Liveship.  I seriously thought about skipping Liveship completely, but finally decided that Farseer was good enough that she got some goodwill before I went digging for the prize at the bottom of the box in going straight back to Fitz.

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.

I have finished up the trilogy, all via iPhone Kindle app reading.  The others are Royal Assassin and Assassin's Quest.  An excellent series that I would highly recommend to fantasy readers.  I have moved on to her next trilogy with Ship of Magic, which is based in the same world, same time, but different geographic area and characters.  It's started slowly, but I'm starting to get into it a bit.  Although I may decide to stop by the library for the next two books rather than drop ~$13 on the next two in the series.

Fired this up today after the patch.  I'm still enjoying it.  The openness and feeling of being out on your own in such an open, hostile environment is such a different experience than anything else that I've ever played.

The national aspect of that looks badass.  I typically purchase two sports titles a year.  I picked up The Show for baseball and have last year's Madden.  Looks like this one will be in the running for purchase up against the new NHL.

I think you underestimate the amount of free time and motivation of hackers.  They will crack it because they can.  They will do it before the retail version is available, and then they will crack the full version once it arrives.

Also at the top of the page are two links: "Show unread posts since last visit." and "Show new replies to your posts."

When I don't have as much time to leisurely peruse, I use these to get the stuff that's of interest that's been recently active.

My Cinco de Mayo will be spend driving to Wichita Falls this evening, 3.5 hours on the road so that I can spend my birthday (Thursday) and Mother's Day (Sunday) with my parents, sister, and brother-in-law.  So celebrating in the usual fashion would likely get me pulled over and arrested.

Thoughts do not equate to a bad person.  Actions do.

I am sure every one of us has had thoughts to ourselves that we would not voice, share, or act on because we realize them to be not in keeping with who we want to be.  I will admit that I occasionally fall prey to racist and elitist thinking. 

I don't consider myself a bad person because I ensure that I do not allow those thoughts to impact my actions.  I take each person as they come.  I may not care for their company because of their actions, which may or may not fall into certain stereotypes, but I make the judgement on them based on how they interact with me and those around me.  I may feel bad when I'm surprised that they don't fit the stereotypes that they hold, but I will not feel bad for it because I didn't dismiss them out of hand because they belong to said stereotype group. 

And even based on that, the stereotypes stamped into my head apply to not only race and gender, but other behavioral and background situations.

I think Pete just volunteered to form the New Amish.   icon_smile

That's the exact modus operandi of all technology.  The endless upgrade/patch cycle rolls on.  New processor, new mobo, bigger HD, better graphics card, firmware updates, patches, Gold editions, and so forth. 

The mindset that I've developed is to determine what feature set you are comfortable with, make the decision to purchase it, and then stop reading all the crap about the next model.  I have to re-learn the stuff about computer components every time I get a new system because I don't pay attention after I've bought it.  If the price drops 45 days after I bought the component, I don't want to know.  If the new model has heated cupholders, that wasn't on my requirement list.  It might be nice to have, but I'm not going to bemoan the fact that I bought the model that didn't have it.

I will be giving Parenthood a look, not for any interest due to the source material, but due to the involvement of Peter Krause, who I've had a man-crush on since Sports Night.  I dig Maura Tierney's work as well.
