As far as backing up Steam, can we back up everything to an external hard drive, or would I have to use discs? God knows if I use DVDs it'll take forever.

you have to use disks.


3.5  only.

I don't think this is entirely accurate, you may not know, but a recent patch has enabled 5.25 and ZIP discs as well...., the problem is that this patch also broke backing up to tape drive.. frown I believe CD's are due 1st quarter 2011, but don't quote me on that...

It's still cranking out punch cards for my backups.
Well whatever you do, don't drop them and mix them up or your hosed....

They're now pretty way off from the comics, but that's a good thing since it's a different medium.

the only thing I'm worried about is that they're going to skip a major event that should be coming up and would be a great cap for the season.

It's been a while since i read the first set of issues, but isn't:
Spoiler for Hiden:
the CDC issue new?
Also, I think they already missed a major plot point, but I may be remembering it wrong...
Possible MAJOR spoiler if they follow the comic....
Spoiler for Hiden:
Didn't the Carl/Shane scene already happen in the timeline of the comic? I thought it was before they moved?

Freezer trick should be the last thing you do...
Some basic things to try first....
change cable
change port
try safe mode
There are also data recovery services available thorugh Seagate... doing the freezer trick will make it harder for them or anyone else.
does it show up in bios?
try removing all other drives except os one.

Well, I know I want to see the new one, but if I can't show my family the first one so that they  have at least an idea what is going on, I don't think I will see it in the theaters.
This just doesn't make sense.... How can they expect people to go see a sequel to a movie if they haven't seen the first one? Maybe for a typical slasher film this might work, but this does have a plot to follow...

Well CeeKay, if that copy of Episode 1 is indeed spare, I'll gladly take it off your hands - thank you very much!  How have you guys got spare copies of anything anyway?
When you buy certain games and bundles on Steam, they can come with free games. Sometimes they are games you already own on Steam, so Steam let's you transfer ownership of that free "extra" game to someone else.

Also, I like the cloud. It is especially useful for running Steam on multiple computers and for re-installs...
Haven't had any problems yet.... I probably buy 90% from Steam now... Just like not having to look for discs.. Especially if I get an itch for an older game again.... Also, since most games aren't coming with decent manuals anymore, there is no incentive to buy a boxed one...

Anyone know why it is so hard to find the original movie? You would think that with this around the corner they would have re-released it or something.
i can only find $90 versions floating around.... just need a basic DVD or BR version so that my family can see the original before watching this one...

We learn from the father/son he meets upon going home that the radio stopped broadcasting about 3 weeks after the outbreak and later from his wife learn that they decided to head to Atlanta after he had been in the coma for about 3 weeks.  Figuring for some overlap and however long it's been since the radio went out we can guess he was in a coma for 4-6 weeks.

If that's indeed the case,
Spoiler for Hiden:
his wife had to have been cheating on him with his partner since before the shooting.  You don't go from losing your spouse to shacking up with someone else like that in that short period of time.

Possible Major spoilers
Spoiler for Hiden:
IIRC, in the comics, it is explained more like a heat of the moment/survival thing... Rick has been in a coma for a while prior to the outbreak... Then when it happens, they can't take him and head to Atlanta. They don't get to drive all the way to Atlanta, they have to work part of the way and are in survival mode... Rick's wife becomes closer to Shane, however, it is Shane that pushes the issue.. At some point during the travels they hook up as a human comfort type thing and they suspect that Rick is gone for good due to the condition of the world during their travels. (When they left Rick, they really thought it was going to be all OK and that the shelter would be fine... they had no idea how screwed up everything really was.) Shane has been into Rick's wife for a while however and sees this as his opportunity....

every now and then the game will take pictures of you and play them back.  it can be quite disconcerting when it happens and you see yourself playing in your underwear.

You do know that there is an undocumented feature that not only randomly takes pictures, but also randomly sends them to your friends list right?

in that case I'd better start playing nude  icon_twisted

I don't know if each episode is 90 minutes or if that's just the pilot. You'd think that would be easy enough to find out, so far I haven't.  retard

Ratings were apparently pretty awesome for an AMC show -- 5 million viewers, which is bigger than the premiere for any of their other original shows. Hopefully that wasn't strictly a Hallloween-night viewing spasm, and the ratings will keep up.

*THE Q&A LINK BELOW HAS SPOILERS, if you didn't get around to watching your DVR or whatever*
EW has a Q&A with the comic book creator Robert Kirkman:
http://popwatch.ew.com/2010/11/01/walking-dead-amc-pilot-kirkman/
I'm snipping a few interesting points that don't go into plot points:
Quote
It was always a question as to how much of that they were going to show, and AMC has surprised us with everything that they’re allowing us to do. There was a plan at one point to shoot a lot of gore—which is what we did—but the original plan was to have re-edited versions of the episodes, that would go on DVD. But at this point, AMC hasn’t really made us pull anything.

They mentioned this in Comic Con... They were all real surprised at how much AMC has let them get away with.... Now they have to think of other things for the DVD special.. smile

Couple of questions...

1) I saved the game to my PC, then made a new save on the cloud. This prevented me from saving anymore to my PC, even if I unchecked cloud. Is this normal?
2) How long does it usually take to transfer the save games to the cloud?
3) Is there a way to end turn without going through all the unit needs orders, production, etc... windows? Enter doesn't seem to work for me.

I'd heard really good things about RUSE on podcasts, from people who liked the same kind of RTS games I do (Dawn of War 2).

Like above, the draconian DRM is the reason why I wasn't going to bother trying it, let alone buying it.

But yeah, RUSE isn't high profile enough for them to bother putting the DRM on it, especially with such controversy.

On the other hand, Brotherhood's focus on online play will really determine things.
The Draconian DRM they are using is the reason that I won't buy their games at all right now. I have skipped on a few games that I wanted.
For this, I am kind of torn...
On one hand, I don't feel like supporting the company at all...
On the other hand, I wonder if helping to support THIS game without the DRM, will help convince them to change their ways....

Hopefully they'll remove learning skills sometime in the near future and credit those as well smile.

I think there was a note with this that it was also a test for something... I forsee being able to buy these credits in the future to level up your character....

I haven't played much in a while, but I do keep re-subscribing.... I just keep leveling my character, which is one of the great things I like... The ability to level up offline.....

Dr Who,however is a bit of a strange one,because it lasts for more then 6 epiosdes,but not as much as 22-24 episodes...so not sure what we should call it

i did however see the last episode...Dr wjo had a fez on his head...didn';t have a clue whsat weas going on though

6 episodes is pretty short.... after the 6 episodes, how long does it take for the next "series" to start?

In Britain, what the US calls a "season", they call a "series". So a series finale would just be a season finale. The new Doctor Who seasons are generally about 12-13 episodes plus a Christmas episode.
