Depending on the local ordances, you should also be able to go to the police station and issue a summons/ticket for uninsured motorist...
Also, just because he says he just bought his cosuins vehicle doesn't make it true... You may be able to go after the cousins insurance....

One missed opportunity:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Would have at least loved to see the apes completely bring down the Golden Gate Bridge, maybe a bit over the top but I think it would have been an awesome effects sequence and more symbolic of the apes really taking over the planet.  The way it ended it felt more like they would just go off and hide secluded in their own little area.

Spoiler for Hiden:
1. That is a horrible idea.
2. You did catch the part where the humans were about to be wiped off the planet by the virus, right?

Spoiler for Hiden:
Yeah of course I saw the virus strain, but that seemed to just be a setup for Contagion smile  It was still just a seed, as it can explain why humans got wiped out, but doesn't push the idea of the planet becoming overrun by super smart apes.  I'm not sure how many apes were supposed to be in the holding center but it seemed like maybe 30ish?  Let's just say it was 100 that actually got smartified, so those 100 are going to populate the whole earth?
Spoiler for Hiden:
IIRC, Even though it was called "Planet" of the Apes, I don't think the orginal's actually established that they occupied the whole planet.... There just may have been many tribes spread out... It'snot like we even saw 1000's of Apes in the original movies, just a few hundred...
So... You have a virus that wipes out most of mankind and after many years a larger population of smart apes who are also stronger than us and you can sort of see it happening...
Although, I think I read somewhere, that this is actually a prequel/reboot, so hopefully they explain it in part 2...

964  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Home AV: Loss of signal when switching definition on: August 12, 2011, 11:47:39 PM
It's basically the delay/lag from switching to different resolutions.. simliar to what happens when you do it on a PC, except slower...
Not sure if the 360 has an option for this, but look for something like "force 1080i" or whatever you want and it should go away... Same thing happened to my tivo when switching from watching an HD recording, back to SD menu, back to SD recording... Tivo had a setting to force everything to HD and I haven't seen the problem again...
965  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Tablet] Galaxy, Xoom, etc. on: August 10, 2011, 12:55:47 AM
What are you using the tablets for?
As a side note, letting everyone choose their own including OS, may turn out to be a mistake.... You should pick a standard platform to use and then let people choose within that platform...
I also don't think anything Apple does Flash....

The super-important reason I've brought you all here today is that I think you ankle pantsers are weird.  It's like a combination of exhibitionism and self-hogtying.  It also does horrible things to your pants crease.
See, I think that around the knees are more restricting.... I'm into the ankles.... If someone wants to look at my pants and underwear under the stall, who am I to deny them....

Oh, and when I read the topic, I kind of thought this thread was about something else.....

I wonder if the ratings being down are due to going away from the roots of the show...
Just finished episode 5... and yeah I hate the waiting to see what happens....
At least it looks like they plan on tying up the whole thing even if it doesn't come back....
I really think that they need to have a law that forces TV shows to do this before canceling...
968  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] Torchwood: Miracle Day (Season 4) on: August 07, 2011, 06:56:30 PM

Quote from: JCC on August 07, 2011, 03:47:40 PM

I'm enjoying this series (mainly due to loving Jack and Gwen), but I think it's my least favorite TW series so far. I was not very enthused by the premise going in, but it's been a bit more interesting than I expected. My main issue with this series is that I think it's just too long. Every week it feels like the plot is moving at a glacial pace. After every week I am just like "... get on it with it already!". I wish the series was about half as long - or they would tie the main plot together over 10 eps by having unrelated "Torchwoody" plots to solve each week.
Kind of in the same boat... The original Torchwood series seemed to do this pretty well... I'm also not to sold on the way Torchwood is setup right now... I really liked the old version where they actually had some authority and took on all the really strange things...

Quote from: JCC on August 07, 2011, 03:47:40 PM

Finally, my pet theory (not based on any inside knowledge or spoilers) is that since they made Jack "mortal" in this series, they clearly are going to kill him off late in the series. It almost seems like a cheat to take away his immortality and not kill him at some point. I expect it will be the ep 9 cliffhanger or happen at some point in episode 10. Since it seems highly likely that Miracle Day has come by someone stealing Jack's immortality, and clearly this will be reversed somehow, I would expect Jack to regain his immortality and be resurrected at the end. I have a feeling that Rex and Oswald won't fare so well at the end. Anyway, just my pet theory.

Kind of thinking the same thing, although...
Spoiler for Hiden:
Killing him off completely wouldn't work... He is still alive in the future according to continuity (Although, in a VERY different form)..

I'm also hoping for a Doctor Who cameo at some point.... Maybe he does something that helps get Torchwood back up and running properly or something, but not solve the current mystery for them...Except, maybe showing up as a cheerleader...
969  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie]Rise of the Apes (Planet of the Apes 2?) on: August 07, 2011, 05:32:44 PM
My wife and I saw this on Friday and thought it was pretty good... Not quite sure if this will be considered a reboot or not as I don't think the origin story is quite the same as the Tim Burton remake, BUT, could "maybe" be considered a precursor to Conquest of the Planet of the Apes...
But anyway, we enjoyed it...

Well, not a sandbox mode per se, but I was able to play around with the engine all I want in the level where you first get water.... As long as I didn't send anyone through to the next level, I got to mess around....
I like the engine/physics in general and like how things erode over time as well...
As was mentioned, the camera angles need work... hopefully this is "fixed" on the PC version...
You can't seem to lose any people, at least in the 3 demo levels as they can all swim (Which makes me wonder why they need the sand bridges anyway...)
I would like to be able to toggle the pickup mode so that I could pick up sand from under water... Also, something where the icon changes to the elment you are hovering over would be nice...
I would also like some bigger scoops as it can get a little tedious when I am messing around.. Really hope there is an engine sandbox mode at some point.....
Do the totem powers work in the demo? I can see the icon on the screen, but it always says no power...
976  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XBLA] From Dust Impressions on: July 28, 2011, 05:20:16 PM

Make sure you see where the connections go.... I have seen some tv's that have the connections in the back and when you use an ultra low mount, you can't plug anything in...
Also, a swing mount is something to consider, just for the ease of making the connections....

So here's a question a friend of mine asked: he went down to gamestop I think and pre-ordered. Since his version will be on disc, how does he play the game early? I can't imagine they'll be able to get the hard-copy version before the rest of the people, but I also can't imagine them mass-releasing the discs and disallowing those who pre-ordered from playing it until a certain date. So I'd guess it'd be available for download?

This is most likely correct.... I think all MMO's have a download option regardless of if you buy the disc or not...

IF you haven't already, remember to update all of your drivers....

Also, if it's a desktop, pop the case open and blow it out with canned air (outside of course), then leave the case up and power it up and see if all your fans are working..
If it's a desktop, same thing... take the bottom covers off and blow through all the vents and exposed areas.

I know this may sound odd... but when removing any type of spyware it is best done in safe mode.  I have run malware bytes on a computer without being in safe mode and it doesn't do anything... when i switch over... it picks up all the pieces and clears them out...  just a suggestion before the nuke and rebuild process...
This plus....

goto all the temp folders for each user and in the windows folders and delete them. Also open msconfig and see if it's in there and look at the path and nuke that as welll (usually in userdata or something and may be a weird fold like jeille or some other random letters.
Doing the above from a winpe or or other boot disc may work better.
