1  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Does Fallout New Vegas Build Upon Fallout 3? on: June 08, 2015, 10:40:58 PM
I enjoyed Fallout 3 a lot but you do not miss much by playing New Vegas.  Pretty much stand alone.  In Fallout 3 you learn what the Enclave is from the old Fallout games.

You are at your computer, doing whatever, and you need a calculator. Do you open your computer's calculator app, Google it, use your phone, or grab a real calculator?

I've been an RPN diehard since I got converted in high school, so I reach for an RPN calculator app on my phone.

I reach for my trusty HP48GX at work or at home. Have 2 spares in storage. Will use HP48 Android emulator in a pinch.

The app is really good as well.  You can try it free.  If you like it and pay to unlock it, then it will unlock across all platforms - PC, iOS, and Android.  At one point, I had a game going on my phone and another going on my Nexus 7 at the same time.  Asynchronous play across all platforms.

Full Metal Alchemist - some on Netflix
Darker than Black
Hellsing Ultimate
Black Lagoon
Legend of Galactic Heroes - long space saga - very good
Monster - great series about a killer
Phantom - series about assassins
Claymore - supernatural monster hunters in medieval times

Suburbia is a great game.  Everyone who has played it has enjoyed - even the nongamers.  That being said, there is only a minor screw you element in it.  You are mostly left to your own devices, but you can try to make game tiles unavailable for others.

Ticket to Ride was released in the Google Play store on 6/5.  You need to have Ice Cream Sandwich.  Works great on Nexus 7.
14  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PC GAMING Where it went wrong for me. on: January 06, 2013, 09:22:56 PM
It is a great era for PC gaming.  Windows 7 is robust.  Hardware is ahead of the software curve by far.  I am playing current games - Dishonered, Borderlands 2, XCOM on a PC that is dated - Wolfdale 8600 at stock speed, with a current medium tier current video card - ATI 7850 at high settings.  I do not foresee the need for an upgrade for awhile.

You would think, but once AT&T sees that it is a smart phone, it is automagically setup with a data plan.  No way around it.  This is such a rip off.  I would only use wifi, and phone companies know that a lot of people would - so less revenue.

I am within 2 miles of ground zero.  It occurred while we were watching a movie.  We thought something had fallen upstairs.  Gave up on it being on the inside and went outside.  Many of the neighbors came out trying to figure out what was going on.

The only thing I like of the Ipad mini versus a Nexus 7 is there are more board game ports on IOS than Android.  I am jealous that Ticket to Ride, Le Havre, Caylus and others are IOS only.

I am in Indianapolis and have lived 30 years here.  Some on the NW side and I am currently on the SE side. My company just hired a new engineer that went through the apartment hunting thing.  Let me know where your job is and I can make recommendations based on commute and what areas to look at.

This is a little late, but you may be able to clean the fan of any gunk buildup and depending on the type of bearings a touch of oil might be worth it.  I went through this before and got a replacement fan from the card manufacturer - but, it turns out it was the chipset cooling fan that was making the noise.  I replaced the fan only and did not have to remove any heat sinks.
30  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Files going to zero size on microSDHC card - Android - solved on: November 12, 2011, 08:25:34 PM
I have a 32 GB microSDHC card that I load music and movies on.  At some random times, the files go to zero size and can no longer be play/used.  Does this seem like a problem with the flash card or the device?

The card is used in a Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0.


I exchanged the memory card for another and no longer have problems.

My old boss had prostrate cancer and had the prostrate removed.  They took out half the nerves and the doctors correctly predicted that he would need Viagra or Cialis.  The Cialis gave him back pains, so he uses Viagra.

I appreciated my boss being open about his cancer experience.  All men should get checked.  He directly impacted 3 people who finally went to the doctor to get checked and have prostate cancer.  One of them waited too long.

My old boss had prostatitis which certainly affected his lifestyle.  He avoided flying like the plague and it affected his car choices on what he could stand to drive.  Unrelated, he developed prostate cancer and had it removed.  Unfortunately, the associated pains did not end.

I played the demo and bought the game.  How do I get the key to register?  It still acts like the demo.

Update - there was some bug and the developers fixed it. It must have been Steam specific combined with the free demo weekend.
