who started the Ebola thread?

Because that is bad form to delete a thread.  It's one thing to delete when there was a mistake/ or duplicate thread, but to delete a whole thread because maybe you didn't agree with something is something that is discouraged.

Motherboard was sent back to MSI in the mail on Saturday.  Now I just wait for the replacement.

I don't understand how Dallas lost to SF at this point.

Either Rod Marinelli is some kind of miracle worker or the Cowboys D is going to come crashing down to earth at some point.

You should thank SF for the wakeup call.

not much to say, when knowing your team had no chance to win this one.  Too many key players missing

I'm not sure it would have mattered if everyone was back.

I agree, but it wouldn't have been a blow out.

Do you have access to a different video card (possibly have built-in video) to confirm the mainboard? What about testing your video card on another PC?

Apologies if this has already been answered.

I have a brand new video card as mentioned on my initial post.  It's not the card.
13  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: on: October 15, 2014, 03:51:04 AM
I probably wasn't very clear.   It started out that way and overtime I stopped receiving signal.

Before reading your post I took out my video card and moved it to a different slot.  No go.

I filed a rma. They want the serial number which I can't find on the motherboard.   There's one sticker with numbers but ms I says it's invalid.  I bet it's on the back which sucks.

I also don't have the box...  frown

17  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Computer Issues (Video Related) on: October 13, 2014, 09:11:50 PM
Before my PC lost signal, my computer would start to chug, throw up messages that so and so stopped responding.  Usually a restart would fix it, but it would always happen after it being on for more than 5 hours or so. 

I replaced the power supply, so I'm pretty sure that's not the culprit.  I guess I can check to see if it's my monitor by using a different monitor...  Just got to find one. 

Would my wife's laptop work as a monitor?

Also try a different slot on the motherboard if available

Those are two good suggestions.  I'll have to see if that works.

About a month ago I started having problems with not receiving a signal to my monitor.

I changed out the hdmi cable, plugged the monitor to a different PC which worked.  Knowing it wasn't my monitor that was bad, I thought it was my video card.  I had a XFX 6970 and it had a lifetime warranty.  I had it RMA'd and while they were able to receive a signal, they noticed it was running hot so  they sent me a new video card anyways (yay me,  I'm now an owner of a brand new XFX 270)  I plugged that in and still the same result.

So now I'm thinking power supply...  JUst got a killer deal off of a 750Watt EVGA power supply for $35.    Put that in today and still no go. 

Now i'm thinking motherboard...

But before continuing down the rabbit hole, and making my wife question me Tongue COuld it be something else???

Added you Mike, avenged a couple people last night but I can't remember who.  I've tracked down and killed all the captains that killed me during my first hour of the game, all except one.  Somehow he always manages to turn up at the most inconvenient times, usually when I'm locked in a battle with two or more different captains.  They overwhelm and kill me, and of course he gets a promotion.  This one orc has made his entire career from my many deaths.  At this point warchief is the only promotion he has left.  I'm at work so I don't have his name, but I think he's around power level 13 to 15 and has some sort of tall bone helmet on.  It's gotten to the point that any time I'm killed he gets more power and recruits, even if he is on the other side of the map and not involved in the fight.  He is immune to everything and always surrounded by guards, but is also deathly afraid of caragors.  Every time I try to tame one and go after him something always goes wrong.  So if anyone sees a vengeance mission for me that involves a short, stubby little orc with a long bone helmet please do me a favor and separate his head from his body.

you probably avenged my death a few times Tongue

Niners defeat the refs.  Im halfway joking.  But it does show what coukd be done when the its a level playing field.  Overall the refs were fine until the 4th qtr.  Phantom pass interference call and a free first down to the eagles.   I don't remember the exact play but there was one play I saw that the niners should have been called for pass interference.  A Niners defender leveled a receiver before the ball was thrown at him.

Niners still need to be more disciplined and move the ball more down field.   Kap needs to get the ball off on time... 3 years and he still can't get the play off.  Nice td by Stevie Freaking Johnson.  And the defense stood up all game.

Just got my $25 gift card from Dell when I preordered Destiny...  Dell also has a $25 gift card for Shadow of Mordor.  I used Destiny's $25 GC towards Shadow of Mordor, and I'll be selling Madden on Ebay for about $40, and this will now be free + a $25 gift card to use later.

HTPC is built, but missing the most important component... The Tuner.  I don't have access to cablecard (thanks comcast and encryption, + fee) so I settled for OTA.  I have the attenae, but now need to decide on what tuner I should get.  I really would like a 2 tuner or more...

I've looked at the Haugepauge WINTV 2250 + 2255 as well as the HDhomerun Dual.  These seem to be popular.

I've heard the hdhomerun runs hot and can have issues, and heard signal problems with the haugepauge.

Any other tuners you recommend?  How's your experience with the above?
37  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [NFL 2014] Week 2 on: September 15, 2014, 04:03:08 AM
Way too many penalties are being called this year and it's only week 2.

By rule the niners were guilty of many of them but the rule changes suck. Now more than ever the refs are having a say in how the game is played.

Case in point was the would be 60 yard td run by Gore that was called back for illegal hands by Boldin. Replay clearly showed that it wasn't the case but it didn't matter, they already called it.

But in the end the 49ers committed way too many penalties and turnovers.

Great comeback by the bears, with a little help.

Cutler took a bad shot to the ribs and still marched them down for a td.

Marshall was there when they needed them.

Quote from: TiLT on September 10, 2014, 07:34:56 PM

I'm level 8 now, and just started with the Moon. Things got stupid there in the gameplay department. Enemies on hoverbikes are suddenly coming after you, and you can barely fight back since your regular weapons don't do any worthwhile damage to them and your own hoverbike doesn't even have any weapons. It forces you to run around looking for a spare bike, which tends to trigger more enemies that you have to fight off in the middle of all this. Annoying, to say the least.

For anyone looking for story or setting, this isn't really the right game. It's very clear that all effort has gone towards the gameplay itself. The story is disjointed and basic at the moment, while the setting feels empty and barren, with almost no personality. The social hub is so empty and pointless that they might as well have just gone with a menu instead. Most MMOs have more meaningful social hubs than this. There's nothing there but a bunch of NPCs standing in place, giving or selling you items or missions while maybe saying one line of dialogue when you approach them. They won't even say anything of interest when you hand them mission items, which is a very wasted opportunity. I'd love to be able to engage these people in dialogue, but it appears this isn't that kind of game at all. Any backstory or detail you're looking for about these characters has to be fished out of the Grimoire in your web browser.

lame lame lame.

I was hoping for a good sci-fi game.  I knew I shouldn't have trusted Bungie to do that.

I'm looking forward to hearing impressions on solo play, since that's likely how I'll be playing most of the game. I'm more interested in the story and the world than anything.

From what I've been hearing, the story is at Diablo 3 levels of crappiness, which is crappy indeed.

Yeah so far it's nothing special. 

so it's like Halo.

All they need now is repetitious level design and we have a clone with a different name!
