Quote from: Covenant on February 10, 2012, 01:20:42 PM

I got an associates in computer science and went right into the job market as a programmer. Started out on the low side of the salary scale, but now I'm doing great for myself and my family.


Sorry to take this thread slightly off-topic, but could you give me a tip or two? I'm also in community college working towards a A.S. in computer science (as a sort of a "plan B"). Ultimately I'll go into a 4-year university and get a B.S., but I'd like to get a job and work for a year or so to earn some money to pay towards school. How did you get a job right out of community college? Where did you look?

Quote from: EngineNo9 on February 04, 2012, 11:07:37 PM

I think the Kindle Fire is actually a pretty good fit if you're mainly looking for movies, books and games.  Those are sort of it's strongest points (the weakest being browsing online or magazines on the smaller screen, IMO).  And it's relatively cheap compared to other tablets as well.  

It's a bit of a stretch to call gaming one of it's strong points.

But watching movies and reading books, yeah. It'll do the job decently enough.

But, shit, it's only $200. Just buy it, and if she finds she likes the tablet form factor and wants some more oomph, she can buy the iPad later down the road.
164  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: FREE: Thief Gold + Aliens vs Predator (Gold Edition) on: February 04, 2012, 11:53:20 PM
Will anyone not take those even when they're free?

If not, I will despair at the state of gaming those days.

You don't want me to despair, right? So take those freebies and educate yourselves on a slice of what REAL gaming is all about!

You do realize that you can get one at Wal-Mart for around $5 (for a 2GB).  If I had a spare I'd drop it in the mail but I don't have any available anymore.

Yeah, I found a 8 GB one for $4.44 on Amazon.

So nevermind smile
166  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / nevermind on: February 02, 2012, 02:01:33 AM
Whatever you call 'em - flash drive, thumb drive, USB drive - I need one.

It needs to be cheap and reliable. I don't care what size it is - that free flash drive you got at the convention and never use? Toss one my way!

All I require is that it's working 100%. No flaky ones!

One final bump before I put this on eBay today.

I'm open to offers!

Offers? Oh yes fellas, I'm open to offers. I only want cash, but if you got them in the form of gift cards (Amazon, Apple, etc), I'm perfectly fine with taking them.

$290 shipped for the iPad.

$9 for the case, if you want it.

Final price drop before putting it on eBay.

With the price drop, I'm asking that the buyer pay me via PayPal gift so I don't get dinged on the fees. I'm a reputable seller on here, and many will voucher for my trustworthiness.

I'm looking to sell my iPad. It's the original generation 16 GB iPad, Wi-Fi only model. It's in excellent condition, with a few minor scratches and scuffs along the edges (on the aluminum). The glass is perfect.

It comes in the box with all the original packaging and accessories.

I'm also including a case (pictured below).

I bought the original on the Mac App Store on a whim when it was on sale.

Only to find out that it brings my 2008 iMac to its knees. I can barely play it at all.

Maybe someday when I get a new iMac I'll re-download it and give it a try.

178  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GT iOS game tournament? on: December 19, 2011, 12:38:44 AM
Saw this on another forum and thought it could be fun.

How about we set up a double-elimination tournament here based around an online-based iOS game? We would have brackets, etc, and set deadlines for the opponents to face off against each other and post the results here.

The game could be Street Fighter IV Volt or Kard Combat or something like that. Something popular so that not too many of us would be forced to buy new games to participate slywink

What do you guys think?
179  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Your Top 5 Graphic Novels on: December 14, 2011, 10:27:58 PM
I'd like to dive into some good graphic novels.

Unfortunately the series mentioned here seems to be the "going forever and have dozens of writers" type.

I'm looking for a good, deep and *self-contained* graphic novel that has a beginning, middle and end. It's okay to be long (hey, I endured through all the Wheel of Time books so far!), but I want it to have a ending, and have one author behind it.

So... any recommendations?

Quote from: corruptrelic on December 13, 2011, 02:56:21 AM

Was anyone able to pick one up from this out of nowhere Ebay $99 fire sale?

I found out about it at roughly 6:58pm EST by accident. Rushed to get on ebay and pulled up HP's page, they were still showing as $599.99 for the 32GB model. Put in 2 in the buy box, and kept refreshing until 700PM rolled around.
At 700pm - price drops to $149.99. Clicked buy it now. Page loads.. loads.. and loads some more. Then it times out. Hit back, hit 2, buy it now, unable to find item or this item no longer available for sale.
Pull up the 16GB model, enter 2, buy it now, it times out also.

Repeat again, 2 ebay pages pulled up, one for the 16GB and one for the 32GB - finally the 32GB goes through, takes me to the "You're not done.." yet page, click pay with paypal, then says sorry this item has sold out.

Needless to say this was a headache of an experience. I walked away empty handed despite the fact that I was there at 700PM on the dot. Hopefully someone else had better luck than I did as these touchpads go as fast as CeeKay through his BBW play toys.

Same exact experience here.

I wonder how *anyone* got through. It's a sham, I tell you.

I'm not a wolf. What more can I say?

You'll bring yourselves one more step to losing if you hang me. You guys have 3 more days to find the wolf (including this one). Don't waste it on me.

'Sides, would a wolf be so blatantly suspicious? You should see my other games here. I'm always suspicious, except when I'm a wolf.  icon_confused
183  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [WW] GTVille - The Next Generation - Doopri eaten - DAY THREE on: December 09, 2011, 02:56:48 AM
So... guess the hunter was either hung or eaten by the wolf(ves).
184  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [WW] GTVille - The Next Generation - Doopri eaten - DAY THREE on: December 08, 2011, 02:37:01 AM
2. Purge
3. Cragmyre
7. ravenvii - that's friendly old me, not a wolf. Not at all.
9. theohall
10. Bulletpig
11. Soulchilde - cleared by seer, not a wolf.
12. pr0ner

So that leaves five people. There's only one wolf left, and four innocents.

Not sure about this, but I think the hunter should reveal himself - it helps to narrow the list down to 4 people and Soulchilde will probably die tomorrow so the wolf can quickly eliminate a "safe" player from the list, so we'll be in the same place tomorrow if the hunter won't reveal himself until tomorrow. Might as well do it now.

Unless the hunter didn't protect you last night, you WILL be eaten tonight.

Therefore you should give us the scan and result.

Otherwise... Doopri.

Make sure to get and post your Game Center ID somewhere here if you are into multiplayer gaming.

A few of us are starting to rev up on the (mostly asynchronous) gaming scene, which has been quite a nice diversion.

Words for Friends - Scrabble-lite (2 player only)
Poker Pals - poker/scrabble puzzle game (2 player)
Kard Combat - MTG-lite (2 player)
Uniwar - TBS space game (8 player and multi-platform)

Speaking of Game Center IDs, what's yours?

"I vote for you, Cragmyre!" shouted theohall.

"And I for you!" cried Cragmyre with a flourish of his coat.

...

...

"Hey, where's soulchilde?"

"Yeah, we need the majority vote!" agreed theohall.

They looked all over the town. No sign of Soulchilde.

They even chartered a private plane and flew all over the country. That took a few days.

When they finally returned to the village empty-handed, they found Soulchilde mowing his lawn with the most innocent face you'd ever seen.

"... oh, hi guys. I vote for Cragmyre," Soulchide said nonchalantly.

theohall and Cragmyre stared at Soulchilde, panting.

Suddenly, Cragmyre ran for the gallows. He's had it. Fuck it all.

*snap*

"... werewolf for dinner?" Soulchide said, smiling. theohall continued to stare at him.

Cragmyre is a wolf. Villagers win!

"Pig for dinner!"

It is not evening. Rather, it was a shout in the morning.

As the villagers investigated, they found theohall standing over Bulletpig's body. His entire body is skeleton, white and bloodless.

The only thing left intact is his face. The werewolf has placed a plastic pig's snout over Bulletpig's nose.

"... the werewolf's a furry?" Cragmyre said awkwardly.

Bulletpig is a goner. It is now DAY - 3 villagers remain, and 2 is the majority vote. This is the last shot - the wrong person hung, and the werewolves win.

Doopri went up the gallows and played with the noose as the villagers discussed their next move.

"This is cool!" cried doopri as he played with the noose, twisting it this and that way.

As the villagers stared, doopri put the noose around his neck.

"Ooh, ooh, look at me! I'm being hanged!" doopri cried, waving his hands and making funny faces.

Suddenly, the platform gave away, and doopri's face wasn't so funny anymore.

With his hands on the lever, Soulchilde nodded with a self-satisfied face. "I've got a feeling. Just a feeling."

Unfortunately for Soulchilde, as doopri's body slowly stopped thrashing, no fur sprouted across his body.

It's just dead doopri, with a not-so-funny-but-still-funny face.

***

doopri has been hung, and is a villager. It is now NIGHT.
