I saw you on last night, but didn't wish to disturb your video watching(?) last night by pinging an invite.  I believe we had 10 people on at once last night.  The MP is still going strong at the moment.  I think it will still be going strong through late February when Street Fighter 28.5 Super Mega Hyper Turbo Chinchilla Edition comes out.

I bought the EndWar/headset pack at "Best" Buy on the way out of town for the holidays ... and not just for the headset.  I'm looking forward to screaming at my TV and actually getting a response out of it.

I actually had to get a guy to check the back and get one out of the stock room for me on the night of the 23rd.

From a Bills fan in Dallas, congrats to the Eagles and thanks for the Dallas beatdown.  And thanks for reminding us that there's a third column in the record keeping and that it's not just reserved for hockey and soccer.  Can I borrow some Eagles gear for the Vikes game on Sunday?  After all, Philly is the only NFC East team not to get a ring off of Buffalo's back.

Yes, but note that you were taught none of these things.  What grade is it when you were taught the proper cubic foot volume of a bushel of wheat?  Been educated on Kansas weather patterns lately?

I played the demo and liked it enough to pick up the headset deal at Best Buy (and not just for the headset Tongue ) before I left town for the holidays.  I'll most likely pick it up and toy with it sometime over the New Year's holidays.  (I'd really like to get to Prestige on CoD by year's end).  I'll def. be looking for some MP goodness once I get a handle on it.
7887  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (12/22) on: December 23, 2008, 10:53:36 PM
I saw the EndWar/headset deal on their website as well.  Probably stop and try and pick it up before I leave town this evening.

I got nowhere in both OO leagues, but have ridden a 6-6-1 record to the finals this weekend against some HS buddies.  I don;t have the tracking, but it looks like Rivers gave me some good numbers through the air, Antonio Gates had short yards, but two TDs, and the rest look good.  Hopefully I can pull it out and have bragging rights until next season.

When you're typing an email or MMS message, can you get the screen to flip so that it displays horizontally? 

Safari will flip the keyboard.  MMS and e-mail will not.  A little practice with knowing which part of your finger will hit it will improve your skills quickly.  And there is autocorrect.

For the Bluetooth, I know the initial firmware did not have that feature available.  I've never messed with it, so I can't tell you for sure, but I haven't seen anything that says they have changed it.

My wife already has three of everything. She wants one more. The only thing she actually needs is a new computer, so that's what I'm buying her. But I want to let her pick it out, and I don't want to shackle her to a particular store or brand, so I'm not buying a gift certificate. I still have no idea how I'm going to present this gift on xmas morning. I'd like to give her something to unwrap, even if the gift itself is really just money.

Get the budget in banded stacks of $1s from the bank, get a cheap briefcase, and wrap that.

What an amusingly inconvenient idea! I think I like it.

If you do, I would love to see pics.

You have two too many worse.  No one can control themselves when they drink too much.  The question is are they someone who can't control themselves when they drink.

Current press conference.

The remains have been confirmed by nuclear DNA analysis by the FBI that it is Caylee Anthony.  There is no evident trauma to the bones.  Toxicology is still outstanding.  Manner of death is homicide.  Cause is undetermined at this time and may be revised.

The Journal of the American Medical Association defines alcoholism as "a primary, chronic disease characterized by impaired control over drinking, preoccupation with the drug alcohol, use of alcohol despite adverse consequences, and distortions in thinking."

Once a week does not meet most people's definition of "impaired control" or "preoccupation" unless he's keeping track of how many days until he can do it again.  It does not appear that there are any consequences that most people would consider "adverse."  A hangover is expected.  He is not doing serious harm to his school/work/relationships.  His thinking seems to be rather clear and considered on the subject. 

I will agree that there is a spectrum to all behavioral issues and chemical dependence, it doesn't sound like he's in need of structured assistance unless or until he wants to make a change and can not.  Just because someone asks this question does not automatically that the answer is yes.

Biden would be 74.  I seriously doubt (a) he would want it or (b) he would get it in a walk even if he did.  He's less than two years younger than Cheney.  Would you have pegged them as that close in age?

I think it can be a sign of deeper issues.  That's why it's one of the questions and not a solitary indicator.  Drinking by yourself is not in itself a danger sign just as a sore throat is not a clear indicator of a cold, merely a possible indicator that there may be more symptoms waiting to present or not yet diagnosed.

7910  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Want a Space Shuttle for the front lawn? on: December 18, 2008, 10:24:28 PM

If your organization has the right stuff, it could display one of the U.S. shuttles that NASA plans to retire from service in 2010.  The space agency sent a notice this week to museums, schools and similar institutions to gauge their interest and qualifications for properly housing Discovery, Atlantis or Endeavour.
The privilege of showing off a shuttle won't be cheap -- about $42 million.  This figure will include $28.2 million for the removal of hazardous chemicals -- such as ammonia, used as a coolant, and nitrogen tetroxide and hydrazine, used as fuel; $5.8 million for moving the shuttle via a carrier aircraft to its new location; and $8 million for preparing the shuttle for display, Curie said.  A carrier aircraft will be the only way to deliver a shuttle to a landlocked location, and such aircraft will no longer be in NASA's budget once the shuttle program ends.  After chemicals are drained from the shuttle, its estimated weight will be about 170,000 pounds, Curie said.
Asked whether NASA had considered trying to sell the shuttles on eBay, [NASA spokesman Michael Curie] laughed: "No, that probably wouldn't be the prudent thing to do with something paid for by taxpayers' money."

Thank you.


Impacted the ground coming out of a loop at the Kingsville air show in Texas. The aircraft was from Shaw AFB, South Carolina. Pilot, Major Brison Phillips, did not eject. Six minutes into the scripted airshow the pilot executed a double Immelman maneuver to 21 seconds inverted followed by a split S maneuver. The inverted maneuver was standard to maintain position with ground references and the show line. Due to strong winds and unfamiliar ground references, the pilot channelized his atention on the ground references and the show line but not at his power setting en 12° dive angle. Higher than normal power and the dive caused him to descend rapidly from 6,300 feet to 4,200 feet and accelerate from 132 knots to 444 knots. The pilot recognized this and pulled maximum G's but impacted the ground

I stuck with Hardcore for FFA even so.  I honestly don't enjoy Core that much due to the arcade-y feel to it.  I still enjoy playing with you guys.  It's just nice to see occassionally that I don't completely suck.  I still had a few bad rounds last night, but I'm improving slowly.  Being able to shoot at anything that moves helps.. biggrin

I just can't get into computer pinball.  There's not enough of a feedback to scratch that itch.

My local Fuddruckers has the new Indiana Jones machine.  I have one of the top five scores on it atm.  

And I used to play the old Indiana Jones machine when I was a commissary sacker at the AFB when I was was 18.

And when I get back to Vegas, screw the slots, I'm going to the Pinball Museum in between naps and trips to the Hold Em tables.
