scar with extended mags is excellent and the only gun so far that is worth the fmj challenge

Yeah right, like I'm ever gonna get enough kills to get to extended mags, penetration or no.   icon_biggrin

I did have one awesome round on Quarry TDM.  Most of my team went around by the tube o' death at the start, but I went up the opposite side of the map.  I snuck into the top floor of one of the garages and took down five of them in no time.  I would've gotten more if I'd had my silencer. 

I actually managed to get the predator missile two or three times.  Of course, once was about five seconds before the match ended, so I didn't get to use it.   crybaby

I've gotten 3 FMJ kills so far!!  Only 37 more to go which at the rate I kill opponents should see me complete this challenge sometime in 2012.

Ditto for OtterChaos and I'm almost always on the bottom of the score table, I think my k/d is something like .33 so easy points if I'm on the other side.

Exactly my thoughts the other day. I was 'fortunate' enough on Sunday night to have joined the party but there were no spots left on Harks list so I was punted to the other team. I think you and I were both on the 'bad guys' team and we were handed a beating match after match. My KD plummeted from the kelvin scale of .69 to .65 at the end.... crybaby

It was actually kind of commical to hear our team complain about the kills they were subjected to and we had to reinforce the point that they were not cheating - they were just really really really good. I actually remember a mass exodus of players off the list after once match.

Ah good times. But lesson learned - I will never again be on the other team against this crew - too bruising for my online ego  icon_lol

Roman

Well I know I suck so my k/d ratio isn't that important to me.  I actually like being on the other team because 1) I'm not being killed by some random trash talking 13 year old, 2) When I do manage a kill it is fun to see who I managed to get and 3) I'm not hurting the team with my usual score of 3 kills/11 deaths. Oh and 4) I've yet to be on the other side of the javelin glitch.

Hopefully they get most if not all of the bugs/glitches fixed within the next few weeks.  With the class setup that Harkonis showed me last night,  I am not sure I will be able to resist the temptation of using it against the legions of MW2 noobs.  That one they really need to fix ASAP.   I actually had groups of people running away from me at points last night.

It was hilarious to watch that build in action but I wouldn't have liked to be on the OpFor, I'm surprised some players hung around for multiple matches after seeing that.

Nice pop culture memory there!  I was wondering where I had seen her before.  And I agree the mash up song sequence was terrific.  I notice the coach isn't featured much along with the not so preggers wife so maybe they are adjusting the story lines, having said that, no Sue in the last episode either and no way they are writing her out.

I kinda like being OpFor against you guys, it makes my deaths more fun and the kills, well let me tell you getting a kill on one of the regulars makes me laugh.  I hope the chat on the other team is cursing dying to the Otter who rarely can even be pointing in the right direction  ninja.  I think I may have even killed Hark once and Kato wandered into my sights the other night, much fun.  Wonderpug gave me a great tip, after I had finally unlocked the scrambler and put it in my kit, it turns out scrambling a nearby signal just makes them aware I'm close and ready to die, sheesh all that work for nothing.  Thanks for the info Wonder, I got rid of that thing right away.

Well I have to take back my doomsayer post eariler in this thread, I just spent many hours playing with GT'ers and friends and it was really a blast.  My style is to move slow and die quick, every once in awhile an enemy will take pity on me and fail to finish me off with one shot thus allowing me a few meager kills.  I must say the the Afghan map with Hark sporting a shield did net me most of my kills, the tango's would target him and I'd come along and pop em, very fun.  I actually had a few games where my kills exceeded my deaths but those were pretty far in between, I have no idea what my k/d ratio is at the moment, probably 0.11 or something like that.

Well I'm just not getting any good vibe with this game so I've put it up for sale after 15 minutes and one MP session.  I realized that while you are all planning load outs and kill streak perks and other arcane stuff, I'm just spawning in a location, stumbling around and then dying.  In other words it is the exact same game as the last one for me, there is no way I'm going to spend the time to advance past the beginner stage so all the enhancements and tactics are wasted on me.  Best of luck on those Geezer nites eh?  I'm not even a Geezer anymore, just a "Hey you kids! Get off of my lawn!!" stick in the mud.

Well just fired up the game and started a private MP game so I could look around a couple of maps.  Just for fun on the airport level I decided I would shoot any plants that I ran across for aiming practice and it reminded me again of why I don't buy these games, I can't even hit a stationary plant when I'm only a few yards away.  I'm hesitant to join an open game but I may decide to get my feet wet and give others some easy kills.  Dragon Age is calling me though so I'm not sure how long I'll last in MP.

I like pomegranate juice diluted half and half (or more) with water.  Not zero cal but by diluting the stuff it cuts the calories down.  I had been drinking Coke Zero but when I realized I was going through almost 2 liters a day of it I decided to swear off the sodas diet or otherwise.  Costco sells some other antioxidant style drinks (I like the Rooibos tea ones) that I also use by cutting them with water which I actually find better than the full strength liquid.  They list an 8 oz serving as having 70 cals with 16 grams of sugars so even straight up its probably better than a full calorie soda.  One surprising thing I noted is that I'm not drinking near as much of this stuff compared to my Coke Zero habit, I usually drink less than one liter of the diluted stuff a day so say 140 calories in all.

I've had another lock up, I'll put the details in a spoiler since it happened after I got some other stuff

Spoiler for Hiden:
I have the power armor and when I was in an outside area I tried a slam attack, the one where you jump up and then hit a button on the controller to create a smash upon landing.  I did this and landed right on top of a solider at which point the game just froze, had to exit the game completely to get out of it.

All in all the game is working very well for me, only the once hiccup above and the leaderboard issues, well worth the points spent.

Today was a pretty amazing stage as well, starting with Hushovd, and finishing with the Schlecks/Contador charge (including Contador's tactical blunder).  One thing that peeves me about this tour - Lance is almost doing too good of a job as teammate, and I feel as if we aren't getting to see him ride at his best - every day he's holding something back to help the team.

Fortunately tomorrow is the time trial, and he can go all out.  Unfortunately, I'm going to have to watch on tape delay as I need to drop the car off @ 8am PST for service.

One thing to note, AFAIK Contador hasn't won a stage yet, and that used to be one of Lance's big keys in that he felt that the yellow jersey should win at least one stage (I think that partly explains Contador's attack today which left Kloeden in trouble, and then Contador in a dicey situation).

Didn't Contador win in Andorra?  I will have to look that up.  I agree Lance is doing so well but it's frustrating to see him sit back and have to wait.  I hope he comes back next year as a clear team leader.  Fantastic stage today and good for Frank to win.  Contador looks very nervous to me like maybe he is unsure of himself,  there was the ride up to Andorra where he slapped away some fans, the attack that saw him gain a few seconds back on Lance, the attack today that unshipped Kloden and finally the finish today where he finished second where I think he should have coasted across just behind Andy.  It just seems he isn't playing the game the way Johann usually likes things to go.

Garmin and Columbia have always had a rivalry, but it seems it's nastier than many thought. I like it personally, it adds a bit more drama to a Tour that has had almost none outside of the first few days.

I don't get criticizing Astana for their pace setting. They started doing it when the gap was getting rather large and no one else was stepping up. I doubt they would've minded having Hincapie in yellow by a minute or less, but not at 4 or 5 minutes. The most disappointing thing for me was AG2R's totally failure to make a real effort to protect the yellow. Nocentini should be thanking Garmin and their bitterness for staying in yellow because his team sure didn't have it today.

Tomorrow is another uphill finish. I would be very surprised if Armstrong lets Contador go willingly again. I don't think Lance will make a move yet, but I also think he's going to respond to all attacks by the contenders, Contador especially. It wouldn't be surprising to see Cadel Evans or maybe Andy Schleck attacking like mad tomorrow. Hopefully someone does something because the mountain stages so far have been disappointing.

While I'm hoping for a tense stage tomorrow, I just don't think the final mountain is hard enough to see any big changes.  There aren't that many hills in this stage to sap the riders legs so I won't be surprise if it is mostly tempo riding to the top until 1km to go.  Man I hope I'm wrong...

Well I really miscalled that one, Contador looks pretty good right now and I didn't think he could pull quite that large a gap.  Now that Lance look vulnerable I hope other teams try to attack and gain time.  Biggest fear for the rest of the tour is that everyone decides Contador is unbeatable and they don't attack.

How long have Triumph been back in the thick of it? I've always loved Harley's. But the old Truimph Bonneville 650cc was a great looking upright twin.

Zinfan has the right idea. Triumph has been back for awhile. I was looking at buying a Speed Triple about 5 years ago. The new Bonnevilles still look great.

I think the mid 90's might be about right for the return of the Triumph's but I'd have to look it up.  The 1050cc triple engine in this bike is very well regarded as one of the best out there and I can report it is lots of fun.  Sorry for the threadjack Cota, pedal on pedal on.
1111  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: 2009 Tour de France on: July 18, 2009, 07:09:56 PM
Green jersey competition is now over IMHO with Cavendish getting regulated to the back of the field after a dangerous sprint and Thor now leading by 18 pts and only Paris left to sprint it out for points that Mark might be able to get.  Thor can maybe get a few points here and there by riding in a breakaway over some cat 2 and 3 hills before the big hills at the end of stages as we have seen him do already but Mark isn't able to do the same.  It would be nice to see Mark try for some of those intermediate sprints along the way.

As for todays stage, I lost a ton of respect for Garmin and their chase down of George Hincapie causing him to miss the yellow jersey by 5 seconds.  I'm on the fence with Astana since they were riding at the front of the peleton all day and keeping the gap semi-close but they didn't chase that hard and before AG2R came to the front the gap had been going up.  I know George was upset that Astana was on the front when AG2R should have been wasting energy trying to save the jersey but in my mind they were just keeping a reasonable gap so I can live with that.  Absolutely no reason for Garmin to help at the end though especially with it being George looking for the lead in the tour.  If you want to have inter-team rivalry then I say great but you have to respect the people who suffered and strived to pave the way for your team to even be there,  chasing down Hincapie is a tacky bullshit move and while I like all the riders on Garmin I won't be rooting for them to have any success for the rest of this tour.  I'm not feeling lots of grief for Columbia either on the whole Cavendish thing either, it seems they have been blocking too many other teams when their lead out men swing off the line in the final sprint and yes it may have been George one day that didn't try too hard to get out of the way of the other teams.

Man I still can't believe Garmin did that and since both teams are based in the U.S., they all would have garnered good press, stupid, stupid, stupid!!!

You even enjoyed today Pete (well besides the end, which is always exciting when the sprinters go)?  There was nothing going on. Armstrong and Leipheimer both said it was the most relaxed stage of the Tour they had ever rode.

My Tour viewing is going to be iffy for the rest of the month, but I will be sure to catch the Alps.

What you didn't enjoy learning about what kind of shoes David Millar wears?  Yeah pretty lackluster stage today and one I find quite hard to believe the Tour put together for Bastille Day.  It seems the 14'th is usually reserved for a up/down route with some cat 2 and 3 hills in the mix to allow a breakaway (full of French riders for choice) to get away to the finish.  The French won't win any sprint stages and it is so rare that they finish first on top of the high mountains (discounting their win earlier in the week) so I figured they put on a breakaway special for today which would have been a much more interesting race.  I am planning to record the bonus coverage tonight, not to rewatch the race but to see the LeMond piece.

Excellent read and well done to you for sticking to it.  That is the kind of plan I need but substitute food in place of money, too much food debt, need to cut back and pay off all those dinners that are collecting interest.  I've always been pretty conservative with regards to money so never got into a situation like that but you certainly did a great job of outlining your journey there and back. I can relate to that feeling that there are bills unpaid lying around, I had a late charge on a phone or some such bill when my wife put it in the "to be filed in file cabinet" pile and I missed it, happy times in Casa Zinfan I can report.

Jeez today was boring. They really ruined the mountain stages. Alps should be more exciting at least.

Maybe it's the HD feed but I wasn't bored (too much anyways) during the stage, I'm glad the two riders made it to the finish just ahead of the group.  I like seeing the big mountain passes even if there are no attacks, it is the upcoming days that are a bit of a slog for me with only the scenery to keep an eye on while the breaks go clear.
1117  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: 2009 Tour de France on: July 12, 2009, 12:43:45 PM
I'm not sure why they decided to put the finish line so far away from the mountians on these two stages, it does make for pretty lack luster racing for the viewer.  There were a couple of highlights that stood out for me.  Cadel Evans attacking at the gun but not really going all out ala Floyd Landis from a few years ago, just a minor dig for who knows why so early in the stage.  The other thing was Saxo Bank trying to drop the yellow jersey so that Astana would have to defend it in the upcoming week, I don't think I've ever seen that tactic before.  It would have been nice to see George Hincape get back to the break and contend for the win but once he dropped back to the pack most of the interest was gone.  I don't expect anything different today but who know is a main contender cracks on the big mountains and the rest try to bury him.

One thing I find interesting is there are only three uphill finishes in the Tour this year, today being one of them. I think that's going to favor breakaways and may make things interesting for the traditional climbers who try to get their time on final uphills. Of course the monstrous second-to-last stage ends with an almost 30km climb up HC Mount Ventoux and I'm sure we will see plenty of fireworks on that final climb.

I'm a bit wishy washy on the lack of uphill finishes.  I love them for the drama when the attacks are forthcoming but they can be dull sometimes if nobody wants to attack until the last kilometer.  A stage that has big mountains near the end can be fun for the viewers if the descent is tricky and the chase to get back on the wheel of a rival can be fun too. If you want to succeed in that type of stage you MUST attack early in the climb to gain enough time to stay clear to the finish.  Adding to the excitement is if the big riders are trying to catch a breakaway on the climb before the descent, will they make it?  How much time will they gain on the chase to the finish?  What we need is a modern day Claudio Chiappucci to go out on a long long breakaway that has the others chasing for the whole of the day (1992 TdF).

Just picked up the Civ Complete and installed FFH2 and wow I'm impressed.  I played Civ4 quite a bit when it came out but never got to the point of raising the difficulty beyond Warlord, I started a FFH2 game on warlord and promptly lost the game in 10 turns.  I used my scout to explore a dungeon that popped a giant spider which took out all my units and a ghoul stormed my city.  Quite a change from regular Civ and most enjoyable.  It is going to take a long time to learn the new stuff they added, I may take Ironrod's suggestion and play a few BTS games first as I've never played that.

Both Lance and Levi said in post race interviews that they followed the team plans, but that Contador's break away wasn't planned, not that they were surprised.

And this is Astana not T-Mobile with Kloden and Ulrich chasing down Vino a few years back.

  If Contador's charge was spur of the moment I hope it lights a fire under Lance and Levi and we get a repeat of the '86 Tour that saw LeMond and Hinault battling across the mountains within their own team after the Badger reneged on his promise to help Greg after the '85 Tour, which by the way was really the EPIC TdF not this years version.
