162  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Phone cover/case? on: September 14, 2012, 11:08:32 PM
I have an iPhone 4S.

I had an Otterbox Defender, and it was freakin' enormous, and also the rubber part got all stretched out after like... 4 months?  I bought an Otterbox commuter, which is better on size, and is easier to get in and out of my pocket, but the plastic part is breaking around all of the corners, and a piece fell off today... I think I got maybe 6 months out of it, so maybe I should buy another one, but...

Anything better out there?

Wants: can survive biking, running, etc. and small amounts of moisture better than no case, and slips in and out of my pants pocket easily.

Not looking for an e-reader (I have a Kindle), I'm looking for an effective tablet for normal tablet stuff, and some light work related stuff (taking notes in meetings, calling up google docs in meetings sort of stuff).

I'm sort of in the market... these are intriguing.  I have so little awareness of what other options are out there... what else should I be looking at in this price range?

My wife has an iPad, and it's nice, but... the 32gb pricing seems insane.

That one is good.  I was a fan of the first one too...

I'm not even sure if this qualifies as a 'metal' album, but it is so, so, so good:

Baroness - Yellow & Green



You can listen to the whole thing at that link.

How was this for younger kids? After a lot of discussion (and seeing it before) we took our kid to avengers and he loved it and we felt pretty comfortable about it. How does this compare? 

Kid is a little young, but he is insane about superheroes, and spiderman is his favorite (well, until he saw iron man in avengers, anyway).

Great video.  That cracked me up.  Kids and dogs always amaze me with how well they handle stuff and how it doesn't get them down like it seems to with the rest of us.  Good stuff.

Good to hear that it looks like things are clearing out.

Also took our 4.5 year old... some of the scary stuff was maybe a little too scary... and I don't think I've ever heard this kid say a movie was scary before.

I don't know if Cryptonomicon would be a good miniseries, just because I think weaving the timelines together would be very challenging, and hard to follow...

Anathem, on the other hand... it's a fairly focused narrative, but epic scope... that is the one I've always thought would be good HBO miniseries fodder.

Saw it in 3D because my friend wanted to... it looked fine, but the 3D really was, as always, not worth paying for.

How did those big things fly?

I forgot to stay post credits.  Oops.

I am interested in a single touch, as my Kindle keyboard just fell and died.  What would you want for one?

Tomorrow is the last day of week 2...

Never been so busy in my life, but I'm learning alot, and starting to get comfortable with it.

The commute honestly doesn't bother me one bit.  I got a couple books on tape from the library, but mostly I just listen to NPR or music.  There is great mountain biking smack dab in the middle of the commute, so I've brought my bike 4 days  so far and stopped off to ride after work.  Because I take short lunches and bail at 4:30 or so, I'm actually in the mountains on the bike faster than if I had the old job.

The job situation is way cooler... no BS, no power trips.

Waking up at 3:45 this morning because the new job is stressing me out had the one advantage of me being able to easily fit in my 4 miler.
182  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Cabin in the Woods on: April 17, 2012, 12:57:24 AM
Saw this yesterday.

Super funny.  Pretty smart.

Overall, great!
183  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The 2012 Health Improvement Thread on: April 17, 2012, 12:54:36 AM
I ran my first 5K on Saturday.  Got 2nd for men age 30 - 39.  Clearly, there were not many entrants (though definitely more than 2!)  Then I went and got in 20 awesome trail miles on a bike I was demoing in Colorado.

This is my first week at the new gig, so exercise will be a different endeavor, but I can move my 8 hours around however I'd like (short lunches, etc), so I should be able to do my 4 mile run in the morning and make it there by 8:30 and not have to get up too awfully early...

185  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Work decision on: April 13, 2012, 08:54:41 PM
Lacking a printer at home, because that shit always breaks after 2 months, it seems, I printed out all my forms for the new job at my old job.  That's bad form, right?  I guess they can't really begrudge me 4 pieces of paper...
186  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Work decision on: April 13, 2012, 03:52:36 PM
Last day at this job after 7+ years... new job on Monday!

Helm underwent successful surgery last night to repair lacerated tendons in his right forearm. He will miss the entire 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs, but should make a full recovery.

SHIT.

I believe Weber thought he was hit high and from behind (which I think he was) so he took things into his own hands.

Yeah, I think so too... but I still bet he sits.  Out of all the retaliatory options, that's a pretty dumb one.

Seems out of character... he'll get a game, I'd think.

If there was a playoff only GCL, I would buy it... even if it was more per month than regular GCL.  So annoyed at not being able to watch the games at home.

The Williams goals were both sick! Love that sort of stuff.
195  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: NHL Season 2011-2012 on: April 06, 2012, 02:54:52 PM
I didn't realize Carter was hurt...

Man, Kings had several really close chances.  I should've watched this whole game.

Devil - that was the first Devils game I've really watched this season, I think... their PK is on it - lots of good pressure.  I was surprised the Wings scored on the PP against that... it was just a really good play to get Brodeur out of position on that goal.  The Wings definitely had more offensive pressure, but not a lot of good chances.  I wouldn't feel bad about the Devils' offense against the Wings at home.
196  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: NHL Season 2011-2012 on: April 06, 2012, 02:47:21 PM
Certainly effective...

When was the last time the Kings scored 5 goals in a game?  That's a rarity...

Watching condensed game... LOL @ Doughty's combat skills.
197  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: NHL Season 2011-2012 on: April 06, 2012, 01:41:11 AM
Devils look pretty damn good.

Yeah, I was totally joking. I thought Rue was great, and the scenes with her were some of the best.

But I am supposedly just making this shit up.
If only you could talk about hockey instead of only ever whining about hockey...  

I haven't seen the Steen/Bertuzzi thing, so I can't comment on that.  The Franzen/Backes thing could be a penalty, but we weren't on the ice and only saw the end of the exchange, so we don't know what led up to that, and how that affected what the Refs called/did not call.  If Franzen just skated up and did that to Backes, I'd call it a roughing penalty too.  With the refs right there, I imagine there is more to the story since they didn't call it.

Like I said, I can't comment on the Steen/Bertuzzi thing since I didn't see it and the replay isn't up yet, but there is often a LOT of stuff that goes on when two guys are standing face to face and talking shit that isn't called. For all teams.  You are just hyper sensitive about this team for some reason, and watching with the preconception that they are always going to try something dirty, and always get away with it.
