I'm getting the same damn thing. I'm trying to insult Kelly Clarkson and AMerican Idol, but I can't because of this darn feature.

It's not technology stopping you; that's called "karma". As in, "My karma ran over your dogma."

Oh and you're F...L.A.MING if you like  Kelly Clarkson.

I'd hit it. Not my taste in music, but she's hot. It's important for men and women to have different tastes... we like tuna, they like sausage. It's natural for us to be attracted to pink things. Ooo, a double-en-tendre! I am so witty.  disgust

I was leaning like, 75% black and 25% pink...but this comment...THIS COMMENT...makes me really contemplate a pink DSL over the black one...

Yeah, and apparently most people in this forum wouldn't be caught PUTTING fingerprints on a pink one.

Dude, if you're comfortable in your manhood, get the pink one. Put some flaming skull decals on it, but get the pink one.  :slywink:

huh last I checked release dates are usually ship to store dates and you can actually buy it the next day..  Tongue All in good fun of giving you a hard time of course.. oh and I like the idea of the FUR  icon_biggrin

I found that most games come out on tuesday in the US (streetdates) and they hit canadian shelves on thursday/friday due to shipping or french manuals/box labels. So I am used to seeing impressions threads days before I can buy a game. Fact of the matter is, there was two Okami discussions going on (and an impressions thread) before I posted the F.U.R..   icon_cool

I'm not mad or anything, I just didn't like the tone I percieved in the message before my rant. 'zall.

Uhm, did I just hijack my own thread?  saywhat

Gizmodo "confirms-sorta" that a cable will be available.
Blurry rumours of HDMI ports being built-in to a new 360

They have X06 next week. I doubt they're going to blow their load all today.

If they are going to debase and rock the h/w platform of the Sony boat, it's going to be more than one wave.
15412  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 360 will support 1080p! on: September 20, 2006, 06:16:07 PM
Since we've noted that 1080p doesn't NEED double the bandwidth (using television's 3:2 pulldown), all that really means is that the sets that can output 1080p will be able to do so with the signal provided, right?

I think the output from the 360 isn't analog until it hits the bulkhead connector; the VGA (which are admittedly analog high density 15 pin) are able to alter screen resolution. The fact that the 360 knows what kind of cable is plugged in, and can select SD vs HD on the cables leads me to believe that the cable portion can handle the higher throughput (even if it IS analog going into the cable).

Look at it this way : we don't know what the max data throughput is from the 360 to the cable itself (MS's proprietary bulkhead connector). If they include tech in the cable to convert 1080p analog to digital outside the 'box, it doesn't matter as long as it hits the TV using HDMI / DVI D etc...).

I'm sure this was a consideration as to why MS didn't just put component out jacks on the back of the 360; that would have been the cheapest way to go at implementation time. I believe these upgrades are not reactional to Sony; they were looking at BD vs HDDVD whilst they were building the 360. It should come as no great surprise if they made backroads to be able to accomplish step-ups that in previous consoles were unattainable without a complete hardware upgrade.

Mmmhhhmm. Okay. Thanks for playing.

These "furs" are fur people who want to see general consensus, and are fluid enough to change if longer playtimes = better or worse scoring.

I don't want betas, demo's etc. If people choose to do so, that's their business. I'm not policing it; I've provided the guidelines.

As it stands this would be better integrated into the site and I hope it does make it in some form into GamingTrend.

If you don't see value in it, then don't read / contribute.

Impressions are for reading. This is a "Glance system" with 3-4 positive points, 3-4 negative points (if you even want to put that).

Its a quick way to be heard and low commitment to contributing.

15433  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / 60GB ipod [ SOLD] on: September 18, 2006, 07:06:50 PM
I have an opportunity to get an iPod Video, and am looking to offload my white 60GB iPod photo + Griffin iTalk. It comes with a docking bay(svideo out) ( bought separately, official Apple), Apple USB cable, and Apple USB<>110v A/C plug. I also have the original earphones which are in decent shape. I still have the original packaging. Everything else is MINT, the iPod itself is in great shape for having ~15 months of use. It does have some (very)minor scratches; I've never tried to get them fixed. (there is stuff like iDrops which apparently work wonders).I paid full price for this iPod (450CAD iirc) in June 2005.

The iTalk is still on its way and it is apparently new (ebay purchase) but the video is too good a price to give up and isn't backwards compatible. It allows podcasting and records directly to the iPod (can record thousands of hours). I bought it to use as evidence for conversations with my ex (we go to court next month for custody) so she can't play the he-said-she-said games. It has been 2.5 weeks and the court date is rapidly approaching and is going to miss the fundemental reason for purchase.

If you're interested, PM me with an offer along with your preferred shipping method and zip / postal code and I'll let you know how much the shipping would add to your offer. If you have price suggestions only, feel free to post them here. I don't mind giving it up for a nice price; I just don't want to let it go for a song-and-a-dance.

So, send me a price; if it's funny, I'll laugh.

[edited title to garner some negative feedback, also I need a taker today at the latest; no time for ebay]

Harry Turtledove's Videssos Cycle is a terrific series of novels. He also has a tremendous line of "alternative history" books. I've read the first four books (the first Videssos series). Terrific stuff.

Robert E. Vardeman's Cenotaph Road is an easy read and is pretty fun. I could never find books 5+.

Piers Anthony's Adept series and Bio of a Space Tyrant were influential when I first started getting into sci-fi / fantasy. The Xanth series is stupid, vulgar, crass and punny. It's all the reasons I talk to Knightshade Dragon.  :slywink:  I wouldn't go out of my way to read the 30+ novels in that collection, but if you see one at a garage sale for $0.25 it's a quarter well worth the laugh.  nod

The Adept series is a must-read; it is pretty universal. I found the Bio of a Space Tyrant a little slow as it is a political series more than an action series. I don't recall getting through all of them either.
