5121  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Vancouver, BC Travel advice needed on: November 10, 2004, 08:36:27 PM
The only problem about visiting Victoria is that it doesn't really bode well for a day trip, unless you leave REALLY early and come back REALLY late.  The ferry to Vancouver Island takes quite a while, plus there's the additional drive to the city itself.  You could always fly, but that's really expensive.

Victoria is great, though.  I spent a week there a few summers ago.  And if you have time, I highly recommend doing one of the whale watching tours.  That was a blast.

5122  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Hotmail finally upgraded on: November 10, 2004, 05:38:52 PM
When gmail came out with their 1 GB of storage space, both Yahoo and Hotmail announced they would be greatly expanding the inbox storage capacities of their free e-mail services.  Yahoo did this a long time ago.  Today, Hotmail finally expanded their storage, giving me 250 MB instead of the previous 2.  Wooo!

I had a blast online so far.  Took a bit of getting used to deathmatch and FPS play against other people, but once I did, I did real well.

Ask Tebunker and Jancelot about having plasma grenades stuck to them.  Several times.  Each.   :twisted:

Quote from: "-Lord Ebonstone-"
I'll say it once and I'll say it again:  Pirate the game or just buy it and use the inevitable homebrew server browser.

Seriously, if I'd modded my XBox and Microsoft pulled this shit on me, I'd never buy another XBox product again (I'd pirate anything I wanted to play).

That you're even considering buying another XBox makes me sick.


LE, Microsoft can pull that anytime they want. The XBox is their product, their intellectual property.  If they feel that people are wrecking their IP, they have every right to take steps to prevent usage of the modded product on more of their IP (that being XBox Live).  

As everyone else has said, it's a risk you take.  Kudos to Microsoft for catching it.

Dunno how many of you have heard, but Bungie is doing some MASSIVE stat tracking features on their website for Halo 2 multiplayer.  You have to link your XBox Live handle through Microsoft's .net passport and through Bungie's site, but from what I've been told, it's well worth it if you're a stat fiend.  Bungie's homepage (www.bungie.net) is where to go.

Yo.  At Devil's request, this is another thread to judge interest in an ESPN NHL 2K5 tourney.  It looks like there are a few people on the board who have the game.  Even if you have just a casual interest, please express interest and claim a team here.  If I can get a decent response, I'll set something up.

Oh, and I claim Calgary.

I'm in!  Can we set one rule for Console Gold games on XBL, though?  NO STORY DISCUSSION right away.  I don't want to have to unplug the mic and not be able to talk to my team if people are going to spoil the story.

Mike

Edit to add: Does anyone mind if a non-CGer joins in?  My brother will be getting the game too, and it would be nice to play on XBL with him and you guys at the same time.

Is anyone else getting a bug where the game stops recognizing that there's a controller in the port, even though it's still firmly attached?  I've noticed that every time I play for an extended period, this message pops up.  Sometimes it corrects itself, other times I have to unplug and replug the controller to continue playing.

Bad, bad coding if it's not just me.

I'm waiting on an e-mail from someone about plans tonight.  Once I get the e-mail to know if plans are on or off, I can let you know an exact time.  Sorry I can't be more definite as of yet.

As for the rest of the weekend, I'm good anytime Saturday except for when the Miami/Clemson game is on, and on Sunday I'm not available from 12:30 - 4:15 or so.

It sucks but I guess if that's a way to score, then it's up to you to stop it. Might not be the best way to get things done but if it's there you have to expect people will do it.

Quote from: "Daehawk"
I dont know how they called Florida when they themselves said they wont have the absentee ballets counted till Thursday.


Absentee ballots will trend heavily for Bush in Florida, since a vast majority of them will be military.  Also, they know how many ballots were sent out, and can project how many they'll get back based off what they have received.  I believe this is done by party.  And I don't think the absentee ballots can overcome a 363,000 vote difference.

Mike
5158  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [P] Fox News projects Ohio to Bush on: November 03, 2004, 06:20:46 AM

I had to post this here.

Fox News broke early on this one, contradicting their caution the rest of the evening.  Bush will win Ohio, and their 20 votes.  With the rest of the states trending as they are, Bush will win the majority of votes needed to win the election.
