Jack White's "Lazaretto"

One of my favorite current artists. I can't get enough of anything he does. Same goes for Beck. It has been a good year for albums between those two. New Opeth coming out later this year too, but they might be past their prime at this point.
162  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / What virus/malware software do you use? on: July 13, 2014, 05:35:56 AM
I have not used a Windows machine seriously for over a year. I spent about 3 hours tonight trying to get a family members PC to go a little quick by clearing away all the crap the kids installed. She had some virus detector I hadn't heard of and the malware software (Super Anti Malware, or something like that)that kept popping up to buy the full version. I deleted both and went with what I know, MalwareBytes and Bitdefender, both the free versions. Not sure if those are considered good anymore though. I use both on my gaming PC and they seem fine. Is there better for free? What do you use? I need to put something on my Surface as well, just using MS's stuff for now.

Side note, she has a wired Ethernet connection to her router and all browsers seem slow to find load pages. They load fine once they got it, but it seems to hang at "resolving host" for a few second. None of the computers do this on the wireless connection. I figured it was a DNS issue, but changing it to Googles didn't fix it.

Isn't the chili cheese burrito one of those things you can still get but isn't on the menu? The enchirito was like that for years (think it's back on the menu at least). I liked the chili cheese as well, but I never understood why and it kind if scared me. The chili didn't look or taste like chili, if I order a bowl of chili from someplace and they gave me that I would be disgusted. Somehow it worked wrapped in a tortilla though.

Picked up OTTTD. Not sure I like it for two reasons, maybe I am missing something? Tower/enemy info is lacking in game. You can look in the encyclopedia outside of missions, but that does me little good in mission, especially with 3 different damage types, I can't remember what's what during a mission. This is especially annoying as more tower types are available. That, and the lack of a pause where I can look around and examine things. They probably want it to be hectic, but I find it less enjoyable because of it.

I have heard the original Quesarito from Chipotle is amazing.. Unfortunately I don't have a Chipotle close, so I haven't tried it. It's Qdoba when I want Mexican fast food. (Can't eat at any these places often at my age though, don't know how you guys do it.)

I have. They are specifically about children and weight control, but you can reasonably generalize to adults. Milkfat makes you feel fuller so you eat less; those who drink low- or nonfat milk tend to eat more and often overcompensate for the "missing" calories. However, I benefit from the calorie savings in skim because I always eat the same lunch. Apart from the fat, skim milk is nutritionally equivalent to whole milk in vitamins, calcium, etc.

Take that, science.

Sorry, was making a joke referring to the Zeke thread.

I still don't understand the grounds for impeachment. The immigration problem that is no worse than before, but is getting more media attention? I don't understand how the president doesn't respect the Constitution because of the whole healthcare thing either. I got in a FB argument with a fundamentalist Christian friend of mine (alone with all his friends) that swear up and down that he is destroying this country. Just because the Supreme Court says that the current healthcare solution is constitutional, that doesn't mean it is etc...

It's a combination of not remembering everything about algebra and the calculator I think are my problems. I panicked a bit each day when the instructor was going over everything from the day before and everyone else seemed to get it but me. And the repeated "you should know this".

I have been playing with the calculator and learning how to use it (thanks youtube), but for algebra I think I just need a good refresher. I am working on getting through algebra on Kahn Academy so maybe that will be enough.

I dropped the class both times when we got into limits. I get the idea, but then I would get home and do the homework and I didn't feel like I even began to understand it enough to get through the homework. I don't think its the professors fault, so I wonder if there is some class I should take before this one, such as pre-calculus maybe?

Seems like a of kids struggle through this class. I need to give up the idea of getting an A on everything and just get through it.

I suspect he's a pariah at home today.  I doubt he'll be coaching soccer at this level much longer.

That seems a bit unfair to me. I really think it was because of the players, this wasn't a strong Brazil side. Outside of Neymar they didn't have anyone above average at this level of play, players like Fred, Hulk, and Luiz are way overrated (which they proved). Their goal keeper, Julio Cesar plays in the MLS, which to knock the MLS, doesn't say much for him. He is past his prime. Tongue Scolari had limited choices and did what he could with what he had. Brazil were the favorites, mainly it seemed, because they were the home team, but watching them I didn't think they were that impressive. They're good, but never looked close to the teams of 10-20 years ago.

I think Scolari will be fired and he will go back to club level soccer making more money than he did on the international level. He didn't have a great WC, but they did make it to the semi finals (this is the WC after all, that's pretty good) and he has a decent record as a manager.

One of the Brazilian newspapers rated every single player a 0, I didn't see a translation, but it was still pretty funny.

I guess maybe Krul is a specialist compared to Cillessen, who has never saved a penalty, but one good game doesn't make him a specialist. For a goalie penalties are so much about luck and how steady the nerves of the penalty taker are. Krul deserves credit, because he did "guess" the right way every time in that game, but I would have to see him do it a couple of more times before I would praise him as being good at penalties.

The decision was also a slap in the face to Cillessen, which may have caused him to have confidence issues this game. I think it put even more pressure on him today. Also Krul's behavior, getting in to everyones face, was disgusting. I used to like the Dutch, but this years team really changed my opinion of them. Diving thugs who started off strong but failed to impress outside of the group stage.

The firmware patches are part of Windows update, you don't have to do anything special to get them, Destructor. There were 2, IIRC, today that were part of the 17 or so updates. So far no problems, and the track pad issue hasn't come up again. I just hate the track pad in general though, I wish MS would copy Apple. The keyboard otherwise is quite nice, mostly definitely a step up from the 1st version. I still have my old wedge mouse from my Surface 1, so I have been using that. Not the greatest mouse, but works.

Curious, do you have an AC router? Maybe this firmware update will help you.

I don't use the pen much right now, I will when I get back to school, but right now this thing is just a fancy web browser. I have noticed the hover lag, but doesn't really bug me.

Very quiet, you can hear the small German contingent singing though. Tears are flowing!

Brazil did seem to get their act together the last 5 minutes. I just don't think this team is good enough to come back from this. Fred as their only striker doesn't instill much hope.

You beat me to it Isgrimnur, just came to post that.

Did some research on my issues. The trackpad, I have no idea what the problem is, but it seems intermittent. With my first Surface I had to reattach the keyboard at times to clear up minor issues with it. Guess things haven't changed there (could just be me). The wifi problem was introduced in a June 21 firmware update that only affects machines connected to AC routers after they are woken up from sleep mode. The suggested fix is to downgrade the firmware and turn off auto updates. You can just turn wifi off and on for a temporary fix the problem as well.

Still torn on it, it's not a huge problem, but annoying. I don't understand why MS isn't rolling back the drivers/firmware themselves. That it's been 2.5 weeks and it's still not fixed is concerning. At this point I think I will wait a couple more days and see what happens.

Edit: Ha, new firmware just released that supposedly fixes it. Will post later if it actually does or not.
185  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Microsoft Surface - Surface Pro 2 unveiled on: July 08, 2014, 05:41:41 AM
And mine is buggy. Just woke it up, trackpad wouldn't work. Rebooted and trackpad works for the most part but pauses at times. The wifi either times out or takes a very long time to load anything. It's supposedly a driver issue that was introduced with an update in late June. Don't know what to do, I really like it, but this is unacceptable. Not sure how long the return policy is, but I don't think I want to wait for them to fix it either. This thing is too expensive to not work perfectly out of the box.

187  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Changes in gaming habits over the years... on: July 08, 2014, 01:04:57 AM
What bothers me most in the way I have changed with gaming is my unwillingness to learn how to play new games, and how quickly I give up on a challenge. Back in my C64 days in the 80s, where I pirated everything I could get my hands on, I would dedicate all my time to learning a new game, no matter how complicated. If the game was difficult, I would play and play until I got past the part that was I was struggling with. Now? If I can't learn a game in 10 minutes, I don't have much interest. And forget reading manuals, I never do it anymore. Back in the golden days when games came with hefty manuals that was one of my favorite things to do, sit down and read through it (Darklands, Ultima IV, and Battle of Britain come to mind). Also, now if I find a game overly hard, I give up rather than repeatedly try to get past it.

I was like you Rittchard, and doing all my gaming on iOS, but the way the games have changed, I don't even play those much anymore. I can't be bothered with the majority of the F2P stuff and there is just too much garbage out there that I can't be bothered to sift through.

Still, I am PC gaming more lately and kind of enjoying it again.

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.

Yep, MS store. I am hoping they send me a customer survey. I really liked the 2 employees that were helping me and would like to leave good feedback for them as well. Even if the manager had been more helpful, it looked really bad, if it wasn't for the uniform I would have just assumed he was some guy playing Xbox while he was waiting for his girlfriend. He never once talked to me even though he came over at least 3 times trying to get the discount right.

Been playing with OneNote, it's pretty smooth. Very easy to use but some of the interface options are a bit confusing (for instance adding rows/columns to a table should be easier). When using the pen it removes all of the interface so it feels like you are using a pen on a blank piece of paper. I would like the tool bar to stay up though, it slowed me down a bit having to switch between pen and keyboard when a quick button press would have been easier. For a productivity device I am really liking it. Although it would never replace an iPad for a general screwing around while watching tv device. And if I was typing a paper it wouldn't replace a full laptop with keyboard just because the feel of the keyboard isn't quite the same. The track pad sucks compared to a MacBook's trackpad as well. It really does fall somewhere in the middle between a tablet and laptop. Doesn't quite live up to either but is decent at both. Still the main thing holding it back is Windows 8. I do think it will be perfect for school.
192  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Microsoft Surface - Surface Pro 2 unveiled on: July 07, 2014, 04:02:25 AM
I am weak, I got one. Got at 10% discount for being a veteran, which made it a bit easier to stomach. Got the i5 8GB model. Destructor is right, it is way over priced, I just can't see buying a laptop with less than 8GB. Also I was shopping for a Windows laptop earlier this year and found most to be cheap crap. For a decent laptop not made of plastic and low quality parts you are easily going to pay $1500. If you compare the Surface to the better ultrabooks out there, the price isn't that bad. The hardware feels to be very high quality and the specs are decent with the a great display and AC wifi. (Praying I don't have the reported wifi issues.)

I am an Apple guy, so I am biased, but MS has a lot to learn from Apple as far as stores go. Employees needed the manager's help with the discount. The manager was busy playing Xbox and was quite annoyed that he had to help out. They were trying to get me a package deal with the warranty, case etc, which would have been cheaper, but they couldn't get it to work with the discount. Again the manager was too busy to care. I almost walked out due to him, but the employees themselves were doing everything they could to work it out and were very friendly. You could tell they were very embarrassed by the manager as well. I am going to see if I can leave store feedback somewhere.

I am very impressed though. New kickstand is great. Touch keyboard has greatly improved. OneNote with the stylus is nothing short of great. I would kill for an iPad with a stylus like that, but it don't think Apple will ever do it because they are so against stylus. Note taking with my finger just doesn't work well unfortunately.

Windows 8 though, ugh. Had to run a bunch of updates. Figured a new device would be more up to date and/or they could bundle the updates to one download like you would get on an Apple computer. 2 firmware updates later, as well as about 50 software updates it's working well.

Metro still seems very tacked on. I shouldn't have two different sections for preferences. You have Metro preferences and then you have desktop preferences. I can't change the track pad options in desktop options, I have to use Metro's preferences. Plus I had to reboot just to get the trackpad preferences to even show. I don't use Windows much, so maybe I'm just rusty, but I am having a hard time just finding things despite the improvements. Still Windows 8 is getting better.

Nice to see there is no longer screen magnification. Civ 5 you had to mess with magnification on a Surface 1' but that is gone. This time I had to jump through a few hoops to get it running buy it seems to work fine now. It does get very hot though. Other games like Air Patrol work great as well. It seems like this could be a decent gaming machine outside of FPS.

I am disappointed to see that metro apps are still not the same as desktop apps. The metro Evernote app even asked if I wanted to install the desktop app, which is vastly superior. Having two different versions of one app is just silly. Metro should take me to the desktop app.

So while I really like it, Windows 8 is still the major thing holding it back. But as I said, I am an Apple guy, that may just because I am not used to it.
193  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Microsoft Surface - Surface Pro 2 unveiled on: July 06, 2014, 09:47:19 PM
Thanks Naednek, I don't read DQ as much as I used to and missed that. Always trust Bill Harris's opinion.

Destructor, I thought when I bought at Surface 1 it came with free Office? Now that I think about it, you are right, it came with a free year of 365.

I was looking at the more expensive model for the memory more than the drive. I use cloud services so much that I don't need the bigger drive, and this won't be a machine used for storing big items or watching movies. More memory would be nice for the occasional game like Civ V, which I know from my Surface 1 has a touch interface. I didn't like gaming on the 1st one because the screen was too squished and before loading a game you had to go into menus to change the screen magnification first otherwise much of the interface was cut off. That is my first question, do you still have to mess with magnification for running desktop applications, and if you do still need to, is it buried in control panel or is there a quick way to change it?

It's main purpose would be school, especially OneNote for use with the stylus. Have you messed with OneNote? I am already a big fan of the program and would love to replace paper/pen for note taking in class. I have heard there is some major stylus lag for artists, but is this the case for writing? Is the stylus as quick as if I was using a pen on paper? Memory comes into it here too, how does it perform if I have a bunch of apps open? Does it cause lag with the stylus if I am writing in OneNote, have a large PDF open, a webpage, and Word?

With my first Surface, what I really hated was that there would be two apps for things like Evernote, one for Metro and one for the desktop. I have read MS is trying to fix this, make it so all the apps are universal, have they been successful? Is there still a Metro version for apps that is weaker than the desktop version? Do you find you use your Surface in desktop mode or Metro?

So has anyone tried out a Surface Pro 3? Seriously tempted to pick one up since they seemed to have fixed everything that was wrong with the first one. The only thing holding me back is price, the model I want will be $1400 with the keyboard and I am not sure it's worth that much to me (I think that still includes Office). If they have a sale I will probably crack and get one. I believe they are selling quite well so far, so probably won't see a sales anytime soon. Heck I would even take throwing in the keyboard for free.

Unfortunately the Dutch pulled it off. I hate them more and more with each game. Stupid RvP and new United manager.

Predictions: Germany 3:1 over Brazil.

Argentina 2:1 over Holland

Germany 1:0 in the final.

Brazil is down their captain and their star player for them and they haven't really impressed the whole tournament so Germany could take them.

I always remember Brazil as having its stars, but also for having a strong team. They weren't about the individual, but the team. That doesn't seem true this year where it was all about Neymar. If Germany get rolling, I think Brazil is going to get beat badly. Of course Germany has been pretty stale themselves.
