Have a dog.  Took him for a walk last night.  He rears up something in his mouth. I shake the leash as it's typically something bad.  It was.  He was eating another animal's crap.  Damn dirty ape.



I have no idea why you take him for walks in the bathroom, but you should have flushed.  icon_twisted

Austin, I love the ladder setup; that new euro-seating is freakin' awesome.  icon_wink

My divorce had knee-capped my gaming/HT rig.

Right now I have a 30" sony HDTV, a Wii, a 360, a HD PVR with Shaw and a Pioneer VSX1015X (IIRC) and Harman-Kardon HKTS-14 with an extra pair for the rear (7.1 setup).

All of it is running off a Monster Power 5100 MkII 4 stage power cleaner.

I'll post a pic of it; right now the set is a "make do" ... it was the small set before the breakup.

I've sent out tons of invites, and not one response yet.

I've had 2 Mii's commit suicide due to another one learning to yodel, and one Mii has taken to stripping down and masturbating furiously to foldout pics of Miyomoto.

For GODS SAKE... I need to let them out!!

SOMEONE, ANYONE, Let my Mii-ples go...

I'm on the fence right now as to whether to just give up and trade in both Jade Empire and Gladius since neither grabbed me and they're just sitting there taunting me while taking up space on my shelf.

Jade Empire sux. Don't bother. Put it under the tire of your car and crush it.  Gladius, on the other hand, is brilliant.  I finished that game after an all too short 55 hrs.  Man that was fun.  Meant to go back and play the other path but never did and sold it.  icon_frown

Whoa, hold on there son. You recommend destroying Jade Empire, and yet you can in good conscience sell Sea Dogs 2 Pirates (Xbox) on eBay?

That's going too far, ATB. Too far indeed. At least you could FINISH Jade Empire.  icon_twisted

Ok. Whether this movie sucks or not remains to be seen. What we should all do though is rendevous to see it together. I nominate Raligh NC as the city where this gathering should take place. Who is with me?

I'm not travelling that far for a Michael Bay flick.

Sorry.  :icon_sad:

Even if there's robot cosplay involved?

Either we have too geeky for words,

yeah

depending on the day it can be horrendously slow.. hell, even the site won't accept the code (won't save the message... it times out). And I'm below the character limit for the field.

that's just 5. I have something like 100 tags right now.

I have them all color coded based on their score and eberyting. (and sorted from highest to lowest).

It would look awesome if it would load.

I really wish Xbox.com or MCG.net would offer a scoreboard image that allowed 200 entries to be preloaded and pulled in a simple table. You know, for the community. Maybe I'll go suggest it in their forums.

But that still shows my point: what the trailer reveals is the exact opposite of "Robots in Disguise".

It's more like "Robots coming to kick your ass, and they aren't in disguise, because they don't give two turds if you know they are robots or not".

Exactly. 

And I really hope they don't go with Hugo Weaving.  He has such an annoyingly limited acting range. 

Agreed overall, but he was spectacular in Vendetta.  Spectacular.

+1

Oh, the premise for the G1 was that Autobots gave up on Cybertron, and were looking for a new home/energy to win the age-old battle that ravaged Cybertron. The decepticons followed them and and attacked them; they both crashlanded mid-fight in the autobot ship on prehistoric earth and were all deactivated.

Modern day : an earthquake woke the Teletraan 1, and it scanned and updated the decepticons first (mostly military targets). The decepticons, seeing the Autobots were all offline left them for dead. Starscream decided to blast the opening sealing them in their mountain tomb, but that jarring set Teletraan 1 on rebuilding the autobots.

Once they were up and working, the Autobots good nature endeared the humans to them and they sought to harvest energy fairly, and thwart the war-mongering Decepticons from their intent to ravage Earth and then return to Cybertron.

So, they were technically all here before we were. They weren't an invading force. Tongue

[didn't mean to double-post; I thought KD's post was the last one as I didn't see the page 5...  :icon_eek:]

Speaking to Naedneks summary: personally, I think the problem was is that there was no arena for the CageMatch, and it derailed dozens of threads. If there was anything in moderating that needed to be done was to enforce the "stay on topic" rather than getting sucked into he said/she said crap.

Every thread that MENTIONED PS3 or 360 or Wii with any reference to comparison went down that slippery slope. If there was a cagematch thread, then people (or even mods) could have just grabbed that post and shunted it to the CM thread or told people to move it there and get the rest of the world on topic and people wouldn't have gotten so sick and tired of that particular point of interest permeating every goddamned console gaming thread thoughout the holiday season.

as to Corrupts comment "Life is just too damn short to worry about what someone 8,000 miles away whom you haven't even met thinks of you." ... I care about what my friends think. I have friends here; I spend time with them. Their location is irrelevant. I don't care what a lurker thinks of me, or what someone who has ignore on me thinks because they've made themselves inaccessible to me and my reality. If someone has a problem with me I'd hope they could respect me as a reasonable thinking adult to at least PM me and work things out. I had an issue with ROTC about a month ago where a miscommunication/misunderstanding caused some pretty big waves of discontent. We talked it out through PMs and made each other realize where we were coming from and it's all hunky-dory now.

There is a thinking person behind every icon you see on the left side of the screen; I think me dismissing them as less important here than me breeds the "it's-the-fucking-internet-I-can-be-an-ass-what-can-you-do-about-it" mentality which is NOT encouraged by the GT forum community. If it were, I'd be gone in a heartbeat.
14983  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Re: Is there an Ignore feature in the works? on: January 10, 2007, 03:29:29 PM
I'm telling you, losing LE was a mistake. He was el-negativo; his electrons forced us to bring forth the protons. Of this I'm positive.  icon_wink

What longtime members have left? I don't know how any of these attitudes could be altered Ron, people make their own beds. PS3/360 bitchfights would have happened regardless of any ignore feature, so going into it with the idea that this would have helped moderation is flawed.

If people want the option to do this, then do it. The people who DO use it aren't really getting the GT experience, and in doing so it creates gaps. Do I think my opinion should sway your decision in running your site, or planning it's future? No. Do I want you to be drinking pepto-dismal ( icon_wink) because of my position (clearly in the NAY camp)? No.

I've posted this publicly, because I'm not afraid of sharing with the GT community what I think.

PMs, IMHO, are for completing trade transactions or private followups; any use of it to stab at others via the site admins is cop-out. You're not a relationship manager, you're not a counsellor, and you're certainly no bartender (Damnit I said BEER, not this American swill  icon_biggrin). It's not your job to worry about whether Calvin is sleeping with CeeKay again (!!) or whether ATB will give in to my constant harassment for him to buy RS:V (although a little pressure would be nice).

This shit should be fun. If some 1000+ poster is so intolerant to others in the community that they can't BEAR to see what someone else has to write, then they should be able to scroll past it, or skim it and ignore it if it's useless. If they have an ignore feature does it make it better? It certainly doesn't do anything to help the community (especially one which uses thread-based posting to communicate).

I don't like it, I won't use it, and I think anyone who does use it might need to evaluate why they can't just avoid people without needing to have a website maintain their dislike for another person on the net. This place is like a guild in a game; people you like and others you practice tolerance for. Building a "dislike" into the forum structure seems somehow wrong. Having the posted stats as to how much dislike you've accrued is even MORE wrong.

That said, I'm not leaving if you decide to leave it in. This, for me, is my primary forum. It's a group of friends whose borders are beyond just GT, it spills into Wiis, and PS3on-line and 360. These are people who also play together and are the primary contributers to the forum. If that cohesion wasn't there, this forum would look like the comments found at the bottom of the ebgames.com site, or IGN. I really don't want to lose that, and that just might be why some people are a little more rabid on this topic.

My 2 cents.

Loblaw, especially if your first name is Bob.

NOT Hill if your first name is Hank.

How about Znidarcic ? (Pronounced ZNid-ar-cheech). Croatian, IIRC.

If you go with Roman, go with "Roman". not Romane though, people will keep singing that damned jingle.

or Money. Money is awesome.

See, and this is what bothers me.

This adware schmuck is whining about LUA's, when that is all OSX IS... the accounts are all locked down, and no one has root access to the system (without knowing what you're doing, mind you). When you install non-windows OS's, accounts are not given root access by default. By limiting the user to user-mode areas, the kernel mode can run as it was designed to, without users accidentally installing crap software *cough*WildTangent*cough* that does more than it should in terms of system functions.

Since the average user isn't going to care, what is the problem? People who SHOULD be dinking around with the settings are fine, the people who shouldn't be CAN'T, including WildTangent, an eyesore of the "gaming" world.

Ditto. I'm not that good, but I've prompted people to ask whether that was a spider on their head.  icon_biggrin

In fact, Bush has used signing statements to circumvent the laws of our country almost 800 times, more than EVERY PRESIDENT IN HISTORY COMBINED.  IF that isn't a maniac power hunger fool, what is?

You're losing sight of the facts, Kobra. Here, let me bring things into focus for you...

you also NEED a GC controller. Get a WaveBird.

The classic controller didn't work for me (at least) and the wiimote with nunchucks doesn't control it either.

Is there a way around it? I'd love to use the classic controller instead.

Also, what is the clickthing on the back of it for?

Ignoring wouldn't have fixed the -LE- problem.  If anything, it would have made it worse.  -LE-, in all liklihood, would have worn that "ignored by" profile as a badge of honor. 

And therein lies my biggest fear - if we ignore the problem it won't solve it.  If someone is an actual nuisance to the community, would it be better for us to simply let people use the ignore function to stop the problem, or does addressing it with better rule systems seem a more responsible method?

Talking seriously here now, IMO looking at the ignore feature as a 'solution' is going about it the wrong way.  It's simply a tool some people can use.

If it's not a solution to anything, why have it?  If the ignore button wouldn't have helped the PS3 fights that led to the button's implementation, why are we implementing it?

All it does it creates the Computer Administered Limited Layout Obnoxious User System. The problem with it is that it doesn't add anything to the forum, it creates gaps in the flow of the site. It would be like replacing the sound of a cowbell in a song with static hiss, when clearly there SHOULD be that cowbell. If people don't like cowbells then they're not going to listen to the song. The replacement of static doesn't make the song any more valid, or get that user to buy-in to the community dedicated to enjoying said music. They are cowbell-haters, and should move along.

Let the commercial success of the site rest on the front-end; this is the lounge where people are welcome to join the atmosphere, or leave it at their leisure. Look at the people who are here. Do you want those people to drift away because we now have cowbell-haters tastes (or their percieved tastes) create a disjointed sense of harmony?

I stand for cowbells. I say it loud, and I say it PROUD.

CLANK! CLANK! CLANK!!

anything at 16ms is fine, I wouldn't buy anything new that's slower than 11ms nowadays.

Contrast ratio should be at least 800:1 ; I have a 1000:1 monitor.

I'd highly recommend the new version of my monitor, I have the Dell 2405FPW; the new one is 2407WPF.

I'm up to 2 people ignoring me (officially)!

On top of that  I'm post-padding the Calvin way. Oh yeah, it's a three-peat!

Make it three  disgust.

I hardly ever use the chainsaw.



Buddy, you're down to 1 now.

Man I wish these Hiro-dubbed "Pussies" would be consistant. At least with XBL achievements they don't take em away (just stick you for not getting any for demos that don't have any)

I am a little surprised at some of the people who do have people ignoring them. I mean what did ATB ever do to anyone?

I laughed when I saw that.  And who would ignore me?  I am as pure as the driven snow!!!  :slywink:

Well, my Kobra theory holds up as he did not rebut.  If he had, Ceekay was my second guess because I know that he harbors a secret pain in his heart whenever he reads one of my posts because he realizes he's never going to be as charming, well liked, topical or intelligent as I am.

The poor lad.
