That was actually its second name though, this more recent one being the 3rd. The first being the Museum of Man[/img]

Wow, that's also bad ass in a classical sense. I'd agree/argue that Civilization is a better, more modern, name though.

Why was it renamed? The Canadian Museum of Civilization is a bad ass name.

Quote from: Ironrod on June 05, 2016, 02:31:21 AM

Old houses do require a fair amount of upkeep, and since building codes were lax back in the day they have a lot of quirks -- for example, we really need to rewire our house for the 21st century, and nothing is quite level or square. Something always needs updating or replacing. Its bones are good and it will most likely stand for another 100 years, but sometimes I wish I had a modern home that's fully up to code.  

This is exactly why people look down at older homes. A lot of hidden costs, etc.

What we should lament isn't the (lack of) preservation of those homes, but the seemingly lost capability of building homes like those. Imagine a house like that, built with modern materials and everything.

Just wanted to say that, after a year and half they STILL haven't delivered, and to add to that, they're peddling the Pryme, which only measures water (for $99? Really?), and even with that they've completely failed to deliver.

I've sent in a request for a refund.

I love the mouse, but am developing some wrist pain, and am not interested in having it develop into full-blown carpal tunnel, so I'm looking to sell the mouse and trying a trackpad instead.

It's almost brand new, only used for a month. Comes in the box with everything (booklet, USB dongle and USB charging cable).

I take it you aren't on a free upgrade type of contract or upgraded to one of the new contracts in which you pay less unless you get a new phone, ravenii? Otherwise, you would just be paying your cell service provider for a new phone that you aren't take advantage of. I can't imagine still using a 4s! If there was a cheaper way, I would be tossing my 6 for a 6s.

My 4s was unlocked and I'm on a pre-paid plan. So no contracts or anything like that. When I upgrade I plan to pay the full price up-front. No interest in going back to a contract or the yearly upgrade plans.
17  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Apple] It's about time... on: September 09, 2015, 10:53:14 PM
The iPad Pro is a insta-buy. I'm still rocking an iPad 3, which is struggling a lot lately. As the iPad is mainly my bed-side (and couch-side) computer, a bigger screen to watch Netflix on would be awesome. And the keyboard would make it a lot more useful.

The Apple TV is a tentative-buy. It has a lot of potential, and if the app store takes off like it has for iOS and watchOS, it'll become an insta-buy.

Ironically, the one thing that I own that desperately needs to be upgraded... won't be. I'm still rocking an aging iPhone 4s, but it's still doing the job I need it to do, so I think it'll stick around for one more year.

Well, what do you know. Bloodstained has just surpassed Torment: Tides of Numenera to become the most-funded video game in Kickstarter history. It's currently at $4.5 million and going upwards fast. I thought the $5 million stretch goal was a, well, stretch, but with only ~$300,000 to go, it's looking like they'll blow past the goal by tomorrow's deadline.
20  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Kickstarter] Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night (Castlevania successor) on: June 10, 2015, 10:05:52 PM
The game keeps sounding better and better. I was finally convinced and slammed down $60 $125 to back my very first Kickstarter.

With less than 3 days to go, I'm hoping this bump would remind/convince some of you guys to back this project -- it sounds awesome, and I'd love for it to reach the 4.5 million goal (the prequel mini-game)!

I've never understood the need to monitor your caloric intake to this degree or to know exactly how many steps you've taken in a day.  Does this information somehow make you lose weight?  Don't most people who are trying to keep fit have a general idea of whether or not they've consumed too many calories or not exercised enough?  
However back to the Vessyl.  This seems like a pretty big waste to me.  Most of this information is already on my fitbit page (not to mention the side of the damn can).  They have a huge database of food you can look up already and it auto inputs everything for you.  I drink a can of soda, I just add it on the page and all the nutrition info is already there.  It is definitely NOT worth $200 to me to have a cup save me that 5 minutes of time.

It's $100 now smile

And re: measuring, I present Soylent.
Also what I'm learning, if you want to be healthy , the only drink you should be putting in your body is water.  That's a pretty easy drink to track...

Again, Soylent.

I don't get it, I know what I am drinking. If I need nutrient info I just look at the package. Sure it's neat, I just don't understand what it's supposed to do for me.  

It keeps track. Surely you know what a hassle it is to track, either mentally or manually, all the calories and nutrients you drank throughout the day or week?

What do you think of the Vessyl? All kidding about $200 cups and reading labels aside, this is a really cool tech -- it basically knows what you put in the cup, and knows what you drank. It also tracks how much calories, nutrients and water you consumed. Hard to believe they can achieve this.

Going to be perfect with Soylent!
