41  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / What could I sell my 1st gen Ipad for? 16Gb Wifi black on: May 27, 2012, 12:33:13 AM
Need to know something.

1stgen Ipad 16Gb with Wifi in the black apple  case.  Its been in the case since the day I got it and its had a screen protector on it (as near to perfect condition as it could be).  Battery life is great, can go several days etc; heavy use probably a day.

How much should I sell it for?


I won a new Ipad at a conference so I dont need my 1st gen one.

Very much classic Diablo style play.  Played the Wizard, Demon Hunter, and Witch Doctor (Named OogaBooga).  Nice skill and skill additions as you level.  I got crafting and broke up a few magic items, havent crafted anything yet though. 

By the way your stash is shared with all characters as is your gold.

Kinda fun throwing jars full of spiders at mobs and then tying them down with ghoul hands from under the ground.

Been a bit busy everyone.  I have things going on at my sons school and the state of Texas change the youth protection requirements for scouting camps about a month ago; online training doesnt suffice it has to be face - face training.  I am able to teach the training and with this being the start of prime camping time we have a lot to do.

I may jump in with you.  Would prefer to do Empire characters, I have 8 republic on Ajunta Pol now.  Tuesday evenings I am usually doing something with Boy Scouts.  I live in Texas so when you say 8-9 what time zone are you talking?

I cannot believe they are actually bringing that into the game.

apparently you ignored this line  "It is our intention to gradually, over multiple patches, reduce the impact of situational consumables on endgame combat resolution and shift the factors which determine the outcome of combat more towards personal skill."

Rather than beating someone down because you have better gear\situational stim's you should be winning because your a better player.  This is what PvP in Warcraft devolved into; "I have better gear so you have no chance to beat me".

Oh and a game like Warcraft thats been out for like 7 years is still under going changes\tweaks, so its a process.

57  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: So I had to kick Allstate to the curb after 20+ years on: January 07, 2012, 06:38:51 PM
I hate changing things and honestly was lazy about it.
58  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / So I had to kick Allstate to the curb after 20+ years on: January 07, 2012, 05:18:44 PM
Ok so I moved to San Antonio and I have had Allstate Insurance since about 1990 on everything; cars, rentors ins. and then my homes.

I buy a house in San Antonio and call Allstate to start a policy on the day of closing(August 5).  Allstate is a bit confused as I now have two homes but they figure it out.  I close on the house and shortly after receive a letter from Allstate informing me that they are cancelling my policy on the new house because they were unable to perform an exterior inspection.  The inspector couldnt find my home and rather than call me for directions he did nothing.  I call an Allstate office right outside the community where I live and they tell me dont worry we will get that taken care of.  A week goes by and I get a refund check in the mail, not good, I call the local office again.  I am told oh well we will have to write you a new policy now.  Ok write me a new policy and lets get that done.  I tell the lady ok I have this refund check how will I pay you since I am setup to pay you via the escrow on my mortgage; we will deal with Wells Fargo on that she says.  Ok great I put the refund check into my Navy Fed account just in case.  In the mean time I go to USAA and open a bank account.  Rolling into mid December now I get a letter from Allstate; you owe us $900 and if you dont pay we are cancelling your homeowners policy on 12/21.  I call the local office and go over to them and hand them $200 in cash and they say ok we will bill you quaterly for the rest, ok no problem.  Right before Christmas I get another letter from Allstate; we accepted your partial payment however since you did not pay in full your policy was not reinstated on 12/21 at 0000 hours (midnight), its Christmas weekend now and the agents office is closed.

It shouldnt be this hard to give someone my business.

Teusday after Christmas I go to the USAA financial center with my Allstate paperwork and have a chat with a rep.  I get my insurance on my cars and my home with slightly better coverage on both.  Cost of my car insurance is about the same; my homeowners policy with USAA about $300 dollars less a year.  The lowest deductible Allstate would do on my home $2K, USAA $1K and they still would be cheaper by $200.  I have never had a claim on my home so I opt for a $2k deductible.

I also found out more on Allstate.  I had sold my home in Georgia called the agent and told them to cancel my policy and faxed him a signed letter stating to cancel it on November 10.  My policy was still active in late December they just cancelled it and back dated the cancellation.  I called the local Allstate office here in San Antonio to cancel my insurance here and I planned to be nice about it.  I know it wasnt them it was Allstate corporate making the mistake but I cant have gaps in my homeowners insurance.  When I told her sorry but I have insurance with USAA and I need to cancel she said ok and hung up.  Now I have to go through the 800 number and they just didnt care.  Not a single question of why or can we keep you etc.

Anyway if you canget it I highly recommend USAA.  I have used their service at the financial center and they were great.  I sold my Georgia home while I was here so we had a mountian of paperwork to get notarized.  The lady that did that was very ncie and double checked to make sure that not only did she get it right but that my wife and I didnt miss anywhere we had to sign as well; we missed on line.  They have a banking app that is outstanding in its features.

Some freinds of mine and I are on Ajunta Pol an RP-PVP server; we are Republic players.  With the way the Empire is and what I saw in beta most of the Ass-hats will play Empire.  You can go light or dark from either side.  We ran the heriocs with our Smugglers and when we freed the pirate guy I didnt like his attitude so we fragged him; felt good too.  Went like this:

Pirate -  about time you punks got here and set me free, you gonna escort me out of here or what?  Me - Oh hey is that a highly explosive barrel right next to you?  Oh my trigger finger slipped on my blaster BOOM.

We did a two man run through the Esseles with our Smuggler-gunslingers and it worked pretty good with our Corso companions.

A third friend came online and we did it again with our Jedis; two knights and my Counselor-sage.  Every piece of gear that dropped was Counselor gear.  I got an Orange level Jedi robe, blue gloves, blue boots, and a blue saber from the end guy.

What is really nice so far with this game is that we are much more interested in progressing the story lines than blasting through things and getting too a higher level.

Buddy of mine registered his code the day the game was available for purchase, he was in the beta.  He has been invited to start playing on the 13th; I registered my code 3 days after his.

Skyrim wont launch now.  Click on play and the screen goes away then immediately pops back up.  Steam is up and running doesnt show the game being updated.


Figured it out.  Right click game go to properties verify integrity of cache files and once it is done the updater kicked off.  After it loaded the update I could launch the game correctly again.

If you router has more than one antennae try adjusting them.  It broadcasts like ripples in a pond so if you tilt one you may be able to cover the dead spot; may being operative.

For those posting about the key binding problem I have only had this hapen one time and I had two of the same item (quality and all).  I could bind the key but it wouldnt work until I sold off one of my elven bows.

Ran a race in that white car, yes Hark was in it, car handles quite well.
74  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Forza 4 on: October 13, 2011, 03:02:24 AM
The career mode is fun but the AI is a lot like Forza3 where "rubbing is racing" is definitely what they do.  Once you muscle your way out front its a good driving experience.

So far I have hit Nissan level 3 75% off parts and Ford level 5; at 4 its 100% off parts at 5 its a bonus $15,000 + 100% off. 

Did the challenge where you are in the view car mode for the Aston Martin where if you finish first you unlock the car.  Well you unlock it to view it only.  If you completely view a car you get a free Forza shirt for your avatar.

Looking forward to trying to catch some of you online when I have time to run some multiplayer matches.
75  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Forza 4 on: October 11, 2011, 10:31:00 PM
Harkonis sent you and Kato a freind request.
76  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Forza 4 on: October 11, 2011, 10:29:02 PM
Who has car clubs?  I sent a request to IkeV for his, not sure if you are on my freinds list still or not Hark; you may have dropped me.

Racing is fun again.  I let my son choose and he picked the Nissan Micra had a lot of fun with that car running the first 5 tracks.

Anything by Rockport that fits the dress code.  Went from the USMC (boots/flightsuit) to wearing a suit and tie.  I had some dress shoes that were "good" but wore a hole in my ankle.  A Sikorsky tech rep I knew told me to go buy some Dressports by Rockport and those are fantastic shoes.  Rockport makes great foot wear.
