2) Does anyone know if this a part 2 or a new start?

Wow, you guys are gullible..(sp) Tongue

Just because there is a teaser trailer, doesn't mean it's any closer to release... Didn't we go down this path already and it turned out to be a dead end? Until I hear from at least 51% of the GT population that they have it, installed it, and finished it, I won't believe it's really out....

We've had a Tivo for years and was recently going to cancel the one with the monthly subscription, but they agreed to let me do a lifetime one (They stopped offering these and I never realized it. This was the only bad thing about it.) and I signed up for it.

I also ended up building a Tivo like PC with a total of 4 Tuners in it. This works pretty well, but for some reason the signal doesn't come in as well as the Tivo.

Great. My store was on the list. No chance it'll still be there tomorrow at opening.  mad

Don't be so sure. The one I was at had at least 60 people in it and it looked like they would have some extras...especially if you get the PS3 version....
1412  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rock Band - Released! Available! Buy now! on: November 20, 2007, 05:44:56 AM
1) I just picked ours up.
2) The store I picked it up at was on the list, but then off the list towards the evening, but we called and they confirmed they were still on.
3) I believe that the bundles come with a powered USB hub already.

We are buying the PS3 Rock Band bundle.
Will the wireless PS2 guitar work with the PS3 rock band?

Just make sure that you get the bundle on the PS3.  GH guitars won't work on the PS3 version. 

Any idea why this is or if there is an update planned? My son just got GH3 for the PS2 and he was thought he could use the guitar for Rock Band, which he and his friend are trying to convince the wife and I to take them to get tonight at midnight.....

Most dentists won't do general for basic stuff and the last time I had a tooth pulled and went under, the general cost around $500. Insurance doesn't cover it at all.

It took me 4 tries myself so hopefully the 4th try is the charm for you as well.  The good news is that if you plan to keep going up the Cisco ladder the tests seem to get easier after the CCNA.  I've started working on my CCVP and have passed 2 of the tests already on the first try.  I think the CCNA is so hard because the test itself is so broad, it covers a lot.  The mid-level tests go deeper but are more focused on 1 subject at least.

Good luck man!

Sadly, 4th time wasn't a charm for me.  I gave up all of this time, pushed off all of my work, and studied for 6 days straight and netted myself exactly 1 point more than I did last time.  I don't know what to do at this point...

That sucks. Is it really just this insanely hard? Now I'm worried about come summer, hehe. Do they allow you use of notes or anything or is it all just hard core memory knowlege?
My understanding is that the Cisco tests are the only ones that actually mean something in the real world. A+, MCP, MCSE's, don't really mean much. I've worked with people that had those and some of them I would trust to plug my PC in....

Curious that the designers felt it was important to practice the motions repeatedly,
but not the use of the meter.

Yea I didn't get that either. The first few times I did a jutsu I didn't even realize about the meter. I finally get the stick combos down and then I have to get the meter timing down as well.... Then you have to do another button combo/timing thing to actually execute the jutsu, but at least there they let you decide what buttons to push.

Naruto!!! I've had this on pre-order for a while since I am a big Naruto fan. I was supposed to be on vacation this week in fact. Then work called and I had to go in today to do some emergency work at a store, so I won't be able to get it until later today, but I told them I'm not working past 5PM.......

I hope they still have the wrist bands left.

Does anyone know if SOF is gonna have the same "gore" engine? that's really the only reason I bought the first ones...

Go hit the Games tab that's on the right side when you click the Start button. Some things (depending on random Acts of Gord apparently) show up there. Other games will appear when you click the All Programs button when you click on Start.

This helped me figure out my problem. I have my start menu set to classic mode. The games tab doesn't show up in classic mode, so my games weren't showing up either.

1427  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: vista-programs not showing up in start menu on: October 30, 2007, 10:49:36 PM
Nope, I already have that off and this is for newly installed games as well. I even tried turning off UAC and same thing happened when I installed hellgate.
1428  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / vista-programs not showing up in start menu on: October 30, 2007, 06:00:56 PM
A lot of my programs don't seem to want to show up in the Vista start menu. No links to run or to uninstall or readme....

Anyone else have this issue?

I suspect it may be a UAC issue, but if I remember correctly, if you turn of UAC you lose all access to a temp folder or something. I know Acrobat reader 8 had this issue where if UAC was turned off it wouldn't install properly because it writes to a temp folder.

I really don't like UAC, but don't want to add to my problems.

Well in the few games I have that work with it, it does make a difference and makes them look better.

as for running hot, I really wouldn't know as I don't have a temp gauge on it or anything. My PC is on 24/7 though and i haven't seen any problems..
1431  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: post apoc MMO..its free too on: September 20, 2007, 01:01:44 AM
1) It's free so I can't complain.
2) I havea PhysX card and could use another game that uses it.
3) I kind of like the idea of a game being annouced right before it's released. I also kinda wish that ALL games were like this as it would help to lessen my anxiety while waiting for the new games....

Reemul, part of the problem is that they are not technically stopping you for shoplifting, just their bagcheck policy...

Also as you mentioned, many people feel ok with it or they just don't want the hassle.

As for the large numbers not shopping there, it will never happen. It would have to be a massive undertaking where at least 60% of all the customers stop shopping for a couple of weeks. (Or a larger percentage stop shopping for a day or two.)
1438  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Rights and responsibilities on: September 03, 2007, 12:42:13 PM
That was interesting. I don't know how accurate it is, but the person does state that bag checks are voluntary and you can refuse them.
1439  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Rights and responsibilities on: September 03, 2007, 01:11:59 AM
Calvin and Blackadar have kinda hit it on the head.

If it is legal for the guy to walk out and not legal for the store to force a search, why should people be after the guy because he asserted his rights? Why should anyone have to put up with it because "everyone else does" or whatnot?

If it is within the guys rights to refuse to show a DL, why should people get upset when he refuses? (although I wouldn't say he is a jackbooted thug... I really don't expect every police officer to remember every law, not too mention it could be something that he was taught mistakenly. Mistakes do happen)

Yes both things could be seen as someone being a jackass, but it may also have just been about someone not wanting to give up his rights....

It seems that some people are blaming the victim here...

I think the problem is that most people assume they can go through your bags and nobody has thought to challenge this. I REALLY think this should be challenged in court, even with it leading to arrests of employees who stop and detain someone. Yeah that would really suck for the poor guy who just works there, but then he could sue his employer for forcing him to do something illegal, so it could work out for them anyway.

It has been challenged in court, at least on a per state basis. It is unlawful in Maryland, for instance.

Do you have any links to the case by any chance? I'd like to read up on it...
