I would be surprised if the Ravens lose this weekend. I liked their chances before the Lewis retirement announcement.

Now I would almost bet they win. If they control the ball with their run game, I can see their defense giving Luck problems. Colts can't stop the run.

If the Colts can beat Houston, the road to the SB will have to go through Denver baby!!

Assuming Denver beats KC at home as well.

Awesome set of headphones for anyone in the market. Normal price is $299.

I've been eyeing these as I really want a quality set of headphones, but just couldn't pull the trigger on $300.

Most reputable sources put these well about Beats by Dr Dre.

I suspect this will sell out, get 'em while you can!

Owning a pet is just cruel irony a lot of times. Their life spans are so short and it's awful having to say goodbye so soon when they have given so much joy and love. Very few things I hate more than hearing someone who loses a pet. Brings the toughest of us to our knees.

Really sorry for the inevitable loss....from one pet lover to another.

I've posted over at OO about this and I'll post here too.

It looks like I unfortunately may know a victim.

We just recently moved to Hawaii from Denver 2 months ago. I'm a RN who worked at The University of Colorado and Aurora Medical Center. I'm positive I would have been called in to help triage victims had I still been living there. I drove by that theatre daily on my way into work.

Today has been very difficult as I sit in the middle of the ocean wishing I were back in Denver to be with friends and coworkers and helping to care for the victims.  Never have I felt totally helpless. I just wish I could use my trained skills to help care for my former community and home.

I'm not a religious person myself, so I'll only ask to remember in whatever way you choose not only the victims, but survivors and those caring for them.

I'm definitely on the IN side of this. I was about to order the Kindle Fire this week for my birthday, but saw this last night and read some very positive reviews. I also see rumors of a Kindle Fire 2 to be released as early as late July, early August.

I'm going to sit tight right now, but I'm a huge Android and google fan. This baby looks great and I'm seriously contemplating a preorder.

99  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Best way for newbie guitar player to progress? on: June 22, 2012, 10:53:15 PM
My 9 year old son has been learning guitar now for about 5 months. I initially found some youtube videos where he learned basic cords. We then bought Rocksmith and he plays that regularly and he is damn good at it.

The problem is we have come to a point where we don't know how to progress as he is bored with Rocksmith and just strumming basic cords over and over.

So for those out there, what are some suggestions on how to progress? I was thinking of looking into buying a cord book with some songs he would like to learn. But is that too much? Not sure where to go from here.

We are currently paying $170 with the everything family plan from sprint and while we love the freedom, the price every month is starting to get hard to swallow. I'll have to look closer at my minutes and data usage, but somehow we need to lower our monthly bill. On our plan is myself and wife with smartphones and a cheap phone for our son for emergencies he never uses.

From everyone I have mentioned this with, we have a pretty good deal, but after a year with this price, its getting hard to pay every month. I love my Evo and use it like mad, but we are beginning to question why we are spending almost $200 monthly on phones.

No idea what to do.

104  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Best way to fly with guitar on: May 31, 2012, 04:34:34 PM
I've been teaching myself electric guitar for a few months and I'm needing to take it on a flight in a couple weeks.

For those experienced, do you use a case and check it or what's the best way to travel with it. I'm concerned I check it and when I pick it up at baggage claim its damaged.

I don't have a case yet either so I'll take advice on that too. Its a BC Rich warlock, rather inexpensive, paid $200 for it a few months ago.

Good news Ron. Ya I see alot of those EKGs and most times than not they are nothing to worry about. You've might have had this for years and had you not been sick you would have never known.

Hence my previous story about my EKG class where the instructor took no liability for what people saw on their own when hooked up to an EKG.

Stress test should work out OK buddy. Hope you are feeling better.

Oops, overlooked that. Sounds like just an issue of the flu big or the coughing spell.

All should work out OK I'm sure.

I remember when I went through my ekg training the instructor agreed to hook us up and read our own ekg's. Funny thing is he wouldn't take responsibility for what we found....

ie: alot of people find irregular stuff all the time and alot of times its no biggie.

Keep us updated Ron, sure its fine.

Just curious Ron, I'm a Cardiology RN....but obviously no doctor and wouldn't advise as such.

However, I'm curious specifically what waves were inverted. Some of that can be electrolyte imbalances (hence) the flu bug. My experience, I wouldn't worry until you are given a reason to worry (I know thats easy for me to say). Had it been something acute related to your heart, more workup would have been warranted. There are other reasons, but most for a young spring chicken like you should work out fine.

I guess I just want to encourage you to not get too upset unless the doc asks about your living will......j/k

Good luck and I'm sure it'll be OK. Things like that really does put things in perspective. I see it everyday.

116  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Putting out feelers for a huge PS3 bundle on: April 04, 2012, 03:04:35 AM
I have a big PS3 bundle I'm thinking of packaging and selling.  But I have an issue with the system itself.

I bought a new 160gb system last fall.  My son has used it probably about 20 hours.  Tonight I purchase Rocksmith and it's looking like the disc is dead. It spins but won't play any game discs or movies.  I'm really not happy since this is a relatively new system and the drive is dead it appears.  We haven't used it in probably 2 months and bam, drive dead.

So I'm thinking of seeing if someone is interested in the system with a lot of games.  Rockband 2 and 3 with guitar, Call of Duty Black OPS, Battlefield 3, and numerous other games including about $20 of playstation store credit.

I don't know if someone here is interested, but maybe we can work something out.  When I get a chance this weekend I'll list all the games exactely. I do know someone locally that fixes these for the price of the drive. Or I can send it in for replacement if someone is interested or if anyone wants to take it as is, we can talk.

Putting out feelers at the moment.
117  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Learning to play guitar - (5 month update) on: April 03, 2012, 06:50:59 PM
Rise you devil

Anyhow, my wife and I really want to learn the guitar.  We've talked about it for awhile and finally decided to buy an instrument and get started. We've only been at it for a few days using an app on the IPad called beginner guitar (guitar jamz on the net).  It got a lot of high ratings and after 2 lessons we can both play the first little riff which turns out to be smoke on the water.  I think there are about 8 beginner lessons and it teaches important cords. However, I suspect after a couple weeks we'll need more to move on with. 

I also got excited and bought Rocksmith yesterday.  So far that is kicking my butt. Lucky to get 60% on Satisfaction and that was just lucking out on hitting the right cords.

So what I really want to know is what is recommended for absolute beginners?  An app for the IPad would be ideal and I don't mind paying for it. We both are determined and I think learning together should help.  But I want a good, reliable, proven program.
