161  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Netflix splitting DVD and Streaming fees (now splitting into two entities!!!) on: September 19, 2011, 02:22:43 PM
DVDs are still a big profit driver for them. I am willing to bet five years from now there is still a DVD service, though it will likely be smaller (barring some huge paradigm shift in mail fees, as the editorial mentions). 

Netflix is the best streaming service around.  I'm a Hulu Plus subscriber and think it's pretty bad.  I pay for the service and still see nearly as many ads as if it were on plain cable.  I hope Netflix can work out all the issues cropping up around licensing, because I really don't want to deal with the fragmented landscape filled with Hulus and HBO Go's they'll leave behind if they can't.

Quote from: rshetts2 on September 14, 2011, 01:41:01 PM

Just for clarification, lack of exercise is not my primary problem.  I am quite active.  My problem is I have terrible eating habits and I eat a lot of junk.  I work a 2nd shift job and always find myself hungry late at night and it requires amazing willpower not to snack after midnite for me.  I have altered my schedule to help avoid this.  I used to stay up until 2:30 to 3:00am  ( I get home around 11:00pm ) and it was inevitable Id munch on something.  Now I get to bed by midnite and get up earlier. 
 Anyway, the reason I was asking about Primal was to change what I put into my body.  Its great some of you are willing to eat anything and then exercise it away, but thats not for me.  I want to cut out a lot of the sugars and carbs that I dont need, from my diet.  Hell,  everything in my cupboard seems to have some form of high fructose corn syrup in it.  I was looking at Primal as a way to cut out the overprocessing and added garbage that packaged foods contain. 
 I mentioned I tried the South Beach diet, which did work.  I wanted something similar but with different food choices.  Ultimately I found the SB diet to contained too much fish, which Im not a big fan of, and substitutions for the fish were quite often the same and very repetitive. 

The bottom line is it is my hope that a primal type diet will work for me, in altering my food choices and eating habits and give me a bit more variety than the SB diet did.   Ive taken the first step in changing my late night schedule ( which has resulted in some weight loss ) but I know I can do more. To those of you who have found success in losing weight and keeping it off, congratulations.  Its tough to beat decades of poor eating habits and requires a lot of willpower. 

Yep, then the cookbook will be good.  I recommend "Quick and Easy Meals" over the plain Primal cookbook.  I have both and cook out of Quick and Easy way WAY more than the original.

The fitness advice in Blueprint boils down to more high-intensity interval style workouts and more natural weightlifting stuff.  Less hours upon hours of constant state cardio.

after reading this thread, Im kind of interested in giving the Paleo thing a try.    I thought Id check out the Primal Blueprint Cook Book and wondered if I could get by with that or if I needed The Primal Blueprint book as well.  I actually tried the southbeach diet a few years ago and it worked well but the food was bland and repetitive and once I dropped it, I gained everything back ( and then some )  anyways, I was curious where I should start and if just getting the cookbook would be enough.

I'd recommend starting with the Blueprint as it will give you a more complete picture.  A big part of primal is also maintaining an active lifestyle.

FYI for those interested, here's a succinct post describing core differences between pure paleo and primal.  There's a note about fat consumption.  I don't count calories anymore, but when I did it was interesting to note that around 50-60% of my daily calories came from fat.  I do think it's sustainable as a "lifestyle" (for lack of a better word).  Especially if you build in a cheat day once a week.

Kath, how hard you rate the recipes in that book? I'm a terrible chef, and my wife isn't much better, but those amazon reviews have my interest peeked. 1-10, what'd you guess to execute properly?

Sorry I missed this.  So far I'm a big fan.  They're all pretty much 8-10 out of 10.  There's only one I made that I didn't really like which was a cold chicken, radish, carrot, and tahini salad.  Just not for me - I am not a radish fan, it turns out.

Everything else I've made so far has been very tasty.  The first recipe in the book is for "protein balls" that you make by combining macadamia nuts, walnuts, dates, and coconut oil, and then rolling that into balls along with blueberries and shredded coconut.  I eat this daily as a portion of breakfast and have to force myself not to eat the entire bowl of "dough" in one sitting.  Other stuff I've made that I really like are an egg and bacon souffle (super easy, nothing like a normal souffle), a "fried rice" dish that uses grated cauliflower instead of rice and tastes great, "primal hot cereal" which is another breakfast using mashed-up nuts, and a sausage, pepper, zucchini, and sauerkraut saute.  Just back from the store and I'm making that last one again tonight actually.

Most of the dishes are very simple although so far they've all taken longer than the times listed in the book.  I am not a pro chef by any means but nothing has been a disaster.  If you have a small food processor, a skillet and a couple pans, and have chopped vegetables before, that's pretty much all the skills you need.
171  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Lifestyle] Breaking my addiction to white powder. on: September 02, 2011, 10:40:51 PM
I've personally been largely following the Primal Blueprint for about a year now, which is basically paleo with some small tweaks.  I love it and have never been in better shape.  This recipe book is the best I've ever used, and nearly everything I've made so far has been fantastic. 

I also leave Saturdays as an "anything goes" day to round things out.  I think it's really important to admit right up front that no one's perfect, and set aside time to do what you want.  My experience with myself as well as overweight friends is that if you let yourself snack whenever you feel it, you will inevitably go overboard.

In hacking today i learned that you do not need to wait for a hacking operation on a single unit before moving on to the next one. Duh!! That made it much easier and faster.

You can hack anything you're connected to simultaneously.  But each thing you hack has an individual detection chance.  Still it's usually a better deal to attack two things at once than to do it linearly.

Went on a bit of a buying spree this weekend and got a few games -

Anomaly: Warzone Earth - Pretty great game so far.  Very high level of polish for an iOS game.  Imagine a tower defense game played from the perspective of the units.  You get a few units each mission and you plan their route around the map as they complete various objectives.  There are resources to collect and you can deploy new units or upgrade existing ones.  You also have overall "powers" that let you deploy healing zones or special stuff like smoke screens and decoys.  Overall a lot of fun.  Check out the trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZN1CS6OIUM

Defender of the Crown - A very straight port of the old Amiga game.  In fact, it's just running in an emulator.  I want to like it a lot as I loved it back in the day, but the fact that your touch gestures are being translated into mouse clicks makes it extremely difficult.  Swordplay and jousting are close to impossible so far, in my experience.

Zombie Gunship - I rolled my eyes at this simple game sitting on top of the charts for weeks now.  Finally bowed to all the good reviews in the neogaf iphone thread and picked it up for ipad.  Unsurprisingly, it's quite a bit of fun and very addictive.  You ride in an AC-130 gunship and shoot zombies who are heading toward your bunker.  Meanwhile you have to protect (and not shoot) civilians also trying to get there.  After a round, you get rewarded with cash to improve your guns, radar, buy bombs, etc.  It will directly engage your "one more round" gland as a gamer smile

Quote from: Turtle on August 06, 2011, 12:17:04 AM

Also, Trademarks, if I recall, need to be enforced by the company to remain valid, or was that copyright in general. Bleh.

Technically trademarks do, but I don't know if there's an accepted standard or definition of what constitutes adequate vs. inadequate enforcement.  I believe it's a rare event that trademarks are just suddenly removed from active companies on the basis of lack of enforcement.

I think it's less cut-and-dried than forum gamers would like to believe.  People on forums thought that the "Fallout trilogy" from Interplay without Fallout 3 in it was all fine and good too.  As someone with a financial interest in Fallout 3, I did not think it was all fine and good.  That said, suing the guy who is basically the Avatar of indie gaming right now is a terrible move, definitely the work of some lawyer deep in his Law Cave, and hopefully they can just work it out amicably behind-the-scenes.  That should've been the route to take from the start.  

I'm sure Notch, deservingly so, has plenty of money but that hardly means fighting a lawsuit is desirable.  IMO this is a perfect opportunity to realize "Scrolls" is a boring, generic name, and change it to something better smile

186  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: Question re: selling all my Ultima games, etc. on: July 18, 2011, 11:43:35 PM
I spent some time searching for all the games about two years ago.  At least at that time, the only ones to command big prices were Akalabeth, and Ultimas 1-3 depending on condition.  Akalabeth is near priceless.  Never saw an original on ebay.  I saw a copy of U1 go for $1500.  U2 ran upwards of $200, and U3 in good condition was $40-50.  Beyond that most were $20 or less.  That's all for good condition boxes containing manual, disk, maps, and anything else.  Note U1-3 were all released on several different systems with different boxes and the "port" systems like C64 and Atari don't command the high prices.  No idea about the books.

Ebay is the best place to start.  They used to have a "rare" or "classic" games section that's a good place to look.  Just searching ebay as a whole for Ultima used to get me back results that were 90% listings for lipstick smile

Really enjoyed Dead Space 2 as well.  Not much to complain about with that game.  I even got the DLC for it.

Wouldn't be surprised - it's an XBLA game after all.  But I've played two or three hours and I'm not out of Europe yet.  Granted though I've only been playing single player so far.  As a single player game I would not give it stellar reviews.  You basically run back and forth across a map very slowly.  Multiplayer is much more fun from what people tell me.

Thanks Bob...that's the one I grabbed last night.  Whew.

Very addicting game, and more fun than I was expecting.  That is, until I fell through a pit trap, got smacked around by mobs I wasn't high enough level for, died, died again trying to get my gear back, and lost everything I'd been building up since the beginning of the game.  That kinda sucked.  

Aw, but that's the fun of it smile  It's one of the friendliest roguelikes around actually.  I have RogueTouch on my phone - there's a truly brutal game.  You don't know what anything is - potion, scroll, wand, whatever - until you use it.  Even the armor you pick up could be cursed.  They're intense, but they keep you coming back.  I've been playing Fargoal for maybe a year now and every game so far has ended in horrible death.

Edit: Wait, can you get your gear back?  I must just be playing the classic version.

I vaguely remember it from the books.  I think it's there just to reinforce that even though Pycelle might come across and thoughtful and wise, he's still basically out for himself and kind of a disgusting character IMO.  That's what I got out of it at least.  The exercises at the end were definitely meant to be funny though.  I also think it's funny that all of Westeros seems to have about three prostitutes smile

I do think there's a fundamental mental shift you have to make when starting to code, particularly if you don't have a strong mathematics background.  I struggle with simple programs like a loop to find primes, or figuring out how many packages of 6, 9, and 12 mcnuggets I have to buy to get some total number smile  I can talk through how I'd get a solution to these things, but expressing it in code and returning the right results is still difficult.  Right now the focus of the 6.00 course is learning when to apply which kind of loops, when to apply recursion, what is abstraction and why is it useful, that kind of stuff.  I feel like there's an important level there that's helpful to understand before you jump into the nuts and bolts, but maybe it's not absolutely necessary if you just want to start producing stuff.
