Thanks all for the votes.  Yesterday someone added 100+ votes to their video.  Pushing us down to 3rd.  It's probably a good thing that we didn't win, I'm not sure if Ethan could make it past 10pm to meet him.  The dude is in bed by 8pm, and his sister wakes him up everyday between 5 and 6am. 

Anyways, it would have been cool, and I appreciate your constant support through this, and in the past when donating money towards a cure for his Cystic Fibrosis.  (Stay tuned, that's coming up again smile

Played again last night and got to level 14.  Had a really fun time..but there's just something off (with me?).  I don't have that 'OMG can't wait to get back to play it' thing going on.  BF4 may have ruined me for all other shooters.

That said, still not canceling the preorder just yet. smile

It's because there's two k/d ratios. It's making you confused about your actual skill slywink

There are two K/D ratios?

Yes, one for all kills and one for pilot-only kills.

I just pre-ordered a second copy.

For me? Thanks!

game is fun no doubt, I'm hoping there's more to it though.  After my 3rd day, I'm starting to get bored.  With that said, graphics looks great on the PC and the network speeds are extremely fast with no lag and no frame rate stutters like you see in COD

thanks all.  We had a nice jump yesterday.  Went from the low 20's to the 70's.  The 1st place video is at 106 last I looked so I believe if more people here can quickly vote, we can easily get it to #1.  He's celebrating his 4th birthday this Tuesday and it would be cool if I can tell him he's going to see him.  But I'm not sure when they will announce the winner.

So in a few weeks one of my favorite musical artists is coming to town.  It also happens to be my son's favorite artist.  When he has to do his treatments twice a day, he's always begging to watch his concert DVD.  But it doesn't stop there.  He has pretty much memorized the concert set, even down to his moves.

A local christian radio station is having a contest where people can submit a video of themselves lip syncing to one of his songs.  The artist is Toby Mac, he is one of the members of dcTalk if that rings a bell...  More than likely not, but that's not the point.  Anyways I recorded Ethan singling along including a mosh pit dive at the end and submitted it as my entry.  If he wins we'll get 2 tickets to the concert and the opportunity to meet Toby Mac.  Ethan would flip out, and admittedly, as will I since he's been one of my favorite artists for over 20 years.

Anyways would you be kind enough to vote?  You can vote without having to listen or watch if you like, you won't hurt my feelings.  It's a little long.  But I have to say, seeing him do what happens on screen is pretty funny.  He held back a little on the video, but seeing it in person can be very funny.

Here's the link, and you can only vote once.  The leading entry is 106 votes, and I have 9.  So... GET GOING!  smile

CBS is getting half of the Thursday night games next season

http://nfl.si.com/2014/02/05/cbs-nfl-thursday-night-football-tv-broadcast/?eref=sihp

If the 49ers play on a Thursday I hope it's going to be in the 2nd part of the season.  I'm ditching satellite and will only have over the air.

I think you have that backwards unless you don't want to watch the game. 

Having CBS produce all the Thursday games should be a big improvement.  The only thing I liked about their broadcast was the creative use of graphics.  I will say that Mayock is great during the draft.  I like him less as a color guy.

My point I was trying to make was I hope the 49ers play when CBS has it smile

Is Mayock the guy who sounds like Sylvester the Cat who can't pronounce his S?  Man that guy made the game hard to watch

So I'm working on a challenge a bit backwards.  Killing Vultures (which is nearly impossible since nobody calls them in, and when they do they are almost impossible to kill before they either kill you or expire) is the challenge.  I found that you can actually kill your own and get credit which is kind of stupid, but whatever. So anyway I'm trying to earn a vulture, then switch to a class with explosives and blow myself up to kill it, then repeat.  Only need 5 of them so it shouldn't be that bad.  Problem is that I either don't earn one, or I do so well that I have trouble using them.  You'll see what I mean here....

Iupati actually isn't a free agent until 2015.

I'd like to see Boldin and Whitner come back, but I don't see any reason to overpay for either. Rogers is gone unless he significantly restructures his contract, so the secondary is definitely the primary concern.

I don't at all mind a Kaepernick contract extension this offseason. NFL contracts aren't guaranteed and the potential savings outweigh the potential risk of him catching a case of the sucks.

Really looking forward to a hopefully fully healthy Marcus Lattimore in the backfield next season.

Since Iupati is on their rookie contract like Kap I think it's important to extend now rather than wait.

Well we're all on even playing ground now.

What do you think are your teams needs going into 2014

49ers need to look at signing key players (Boldin, Upati, Whitner) to name a few and extend Colin's contract (don't go overboard, he still has a lot to prove)

We also need to upgrade our secondary and our WR

same here.  I placed 118 orders with amazon in 2013.  I wish there was a way to easily see how many were prime.  We do a lot of subscribe and save.  Lets say without prime and for 2 day shipping costs $6 I would need to make 13 orders to break even at the current $79 rate.  If it went up $20, I would need 3 more orders, and at $40 6 more.  Very doable and I'd still probably be ahead of the game.

Maybe BF4 has just ruined me for this game.

It's funny, I played BF4 since launch up until Xmas, than I got COD Ghosts.  And I haven't played or wanted to play BF4 since.

However with that said, with the amount of hack/cheating that goes on in COD, I'm getting a bit tired of it.

Fair enough. This is why I am not married, I dated a girl who freaked out over something similar, and I was frustrated with her for not just telling the guy to get the hell out.

I would say call Kirby, but they probably encourage crap like that.

YA I have their number.  The cop called them also and reported it, but in the cops words the guy on the phone sounded like a hood rat Tongue  So I doubt it would be taken seriously anyways.  

I dont' think it's a girl thing, I'd be shaken up if he forcefully came in my home with a 3 year old an 1 year old being home.

Just as I finished answering the phone the police showed up to our house to follow up.  They detained him in handcuffs and was ready to write him up for trespassing.  However while doing that an officer unrelatated to this call was involved in an accident, so he let him go.  The kid is from Fairfield who works for West Coast Distribution, they sale Kirby Vacuums.  They are known for hiring college students to sell their products.  The officer said they get a lot of calls for incidents like this where salesmen are too aggressive.  He said if he did cite him, our address would have been listed, so I think we're fine on scaring him and hope that he has learned his lesson.

Questions:

Your wife called the neighbor to call the police? Why didn't she just call them?
She didn't have the non-emergency number and it was probably a decision made in panic.
What would you have done if you found him before the cops did?
I would have told him to don't ever enter our house without permission and explained what he did to my wife emotionally because of his aggressive behavior.
What did he do to be "in the back of the car?"
I don't know, I wasn't the officer.  He could have just been detained.  He could have had a warrant for his arrest unrelated to today's incident, or he could have been charged for illegally entering a home.  We didn't press any charges so who knows.  I don't care, but the dude had no business to forceful enter our home.


200  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Door to Door Salesmen (fun times) on: January 22, 2014, 01:19:32 AM
So I get a call from my wife telling me that a carpet cleaner salesman (kirby) came to the door and she foolishly answered the door.  The dude aggressively entered my home without permission scaring the crap out of my wife.  He then said he would come back a few minutes later with the cleaner.  My wife locks the door and shortly after him and a woman comes ringing the doorbell incessantly.  We have a sign over our doorbell asking people to not ring because of kids taking naps, but of course they don't care to take notice.

They finally leave and Erin is shaken up.  She calls our neighbor to have him call the police.  I come home from work early and start driving around the neighborhood looking for him.  The police stopped by our house prior to me coming home.  I see the cop driving by and pull him over (yes I did biggrin) and explained the situation.  He found the guy sitting at the park.  I drove off still looking for the guy in case it wasn't him.  Drove back towards the park and the guy was sitting in the back of the car...

Moral of the story, don't answer the door when you are alone Tongue
