The guy says if I send him $250 more and take off the negative feedback he'll send the PS3. He said a personal check was okay.
Any suggestions?

Um, don't send him any more money?  I don't think you can fix a leaky bucket with more water.

I think his question is a little different than you're reading.  The fan itself should be mounted as in the picture, so that it blows air into the metal.  But with this heatsink, the fan is perpendicular to the processor--you can see where the processor mounts on the bottom.  So the fan (assuming it fits in a case!) would either be pointing towards the floor or the ceiling.  Is it not possible for it to face the front or rear of the case?

I would hope the instructions would say something, but if the choices are up or down, I would guess that you'd want the air to blow up.  Most of my cases draw air from the bottom front of the case, and have the power supply blowing air out at the top back.  Pointing the heatsink blowing up seems to be the best way to keep the airflow smooth.

Also, found out that when you go to the global pokemon exchange for trading, you can only look up ones you've seen. That's mildly disappointing, since I haven't seen the ape starter yet so I can't even try to see what trades are up for it, but eh, whatever.
You're limited that way for the GTS trading, but if you've swapped friend codes you can trade any pokemon, including ones you haven't seen.  Once I hit the breeding area, I'll be happy to breed some turtle eggs or Pearl exclusives for anyone that wants 'em.


Just out of curiosity, how many of you folks are planning to link up your DS collection up to the Pokemon Battle Revolution game that's coming out on the Wii.  It sounds like when you go online, unlike Diamond/Pearl, PBR will let you battle random strangers instead of just people you've swapped friend codes with. 

It's the first online Wii game, and if I'm reading things right, it'll even let you use your DS as a controller.  If you use the DS as your controller, most of the interface is moved there so that the main view on the TV is uncluttered.  Plus, how can you resist seeing that cute little penguin running around rendered in 3d?

A money order is not cash.  If it's cashed sure.. you're out the money, but you should still be able to get a record of who cashed it and where.  If it's floating around out there unclaimed, I believe it can be canceled.

Call Netbank.

Yeah, while I don't think you have any chance of getting the $500 back from the money order itself, you might be able to at least prove that it was cashed by the seller.  From there you could hopefully either get the PS3, or use the proof to invoke some of ebay's buyer protection whatevers.

I don't think the nicknames show up on the GTS.  Plus, if someone's really that bothered by the nickname they can just use the pokemon to breed a new one with the name of their choosing.

Quote from: Magik on April 24, 2007, 03:47:43 PM

One last question for today...Is there a specific nature I should be looking for with my wild pokemon? I found a link that showed what each one does (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/rsnatures.html), but I am not sure which is better to use in practice.
As far as the single player game goes, you don't have to worry about natures at all, the game isn't hard enough for them to make or break anything.

If you do want to use natures, for competition purposes or just to feel uber, you can use them to enhance your pokemon while degrading them in a stat you don't care about.  If you're training a pokemon that's already hopelessly slow, you can use a nature that decreases speed while improving something more important.  If you've got a pokemon that you're only going to give physical attacks, you can decrease the special attack stat without worry.

I'm not going to worry myself about it much until I start trying to breed my dream team.

That being said, I'm not looking on anything extra - no Gamefaqs, no "evolution charts", no "what Pokemon are best", etc.  I'm going in blind.  I hope that, going through the game this way, I don't just kill my chances at being competitive for online battles & otherwise.  But eh, we'll see.

You'll be just fine going in blind.  If you want to have some kind of uber online team later on, you can always go back and breed one after you beat the game.  Most of the real min/maxxing doesn't start till then anyways.

There's only a couple things I can think of that you could hurt yourself by going in without any idea how to play.  One, the TM moves you get can only be used once, so if you want one for someone specific later on you're out of luck if you've already used it.  (Although if it's on a male pokemon I think he can pass on the skill through breeding.)  And second, there's a handful of "legendary" pokemon that you'll only have one opportunity to capture.  These won't appear till the end-game, and they should be pretty obvious when you come across them.

Help me out here guys.  How exactly do I get my friend code for this game?  And how does the wireless work?

Thanks!

You can get your friend code downstairs in a pokemon center.  It's closed off in the first town or two, but opens up really early in the game. 

As far as how the wireless online connectivity works, you can either go to...I think it's called the GTC, to trade to anyone online around the world.  Apparently you can get pokemon with crazy japanese character names if a JP person happens to take you up on a trade.  With the GTC, though, you put a critter up for trade and specify what you want in return.  You can only request pokemon that you have already seen.

Things open up with friend codes.  If you have each other as friends, you can battle each other, trade whatever you want, and even talk to each other via the built in DS microphone.  (X or some other button disables voice.)

I have a female piplup (named Nyx smile ) I'm going to have to find a male penguin for her to mate with.

The pokemon are really into the whole free love concept, and don't limit themselves to same-species romance.  Your penguin just needs to mate within it's "egg" group, which seems to be either "water 1" type, I guess 2-legged water creatures, or "ground" type.  Your penguin is pretty open minded.  Since she's the female, any mating you choose will result in a piplup egg.

The underground is already in the game, I think he just meant you play it online via wireless.

In the underground you can design secret bases for the "flag retrieval" mini-game, where you play some kind of capture the flag game online where you can lay out traps to try and stop your friend.  The more flags you get online, the more you can do with your secret base (or something like that, more flags at least lets you clear out more rocks.)

Picked Piplup too. Is there any way to get the other 2 at some point in the game?

Yes there is.  First, you have to breed your starting Pokemon with a Ditto Pokemon and the result will be the first evolutionary form of the starter Pokemon.  Then you can trade that with others.
If you happen to have a female starter, you can breed it even earlier.  The male doesn't have to be the same species, it just has to be the same family (needs to look similar, more or less.)

I went with the turtle, and he says he seems to be eager to start siring babies to trade away for our entertainment.

In general you're better off putting points into your classes preferred stats, the ones that are cheaper, as you can bring up the other ones with cash at the temple.

That said, if I play through a second time I'm going to restrict myself from buying temple stat increases as a self-imposed "hard mode," since the game turns a bit easy in the end-game.  I think I'll also avoid making any rune-items or creature spells.

Crocs - for nobody. 

Seriously, they look like something my mom would have worn out in the yard while doing some gardening or something. 

I won't lie, this is the primary reason for me to own a pair. Crocs serve a couple of purposes. One, they are great for little kids, obvioulsy knock offs are fine, and they are very multi-functional. I wouldn't wear them as an everyday shoe, but if I am going to be near or in any body of water I would wear my crocs they make flip-flops look stupid by comparison. They are damn near indestructible, waterproof and you just leave em outside to dry off. For gardening or anything in the mud the same rules apply.

So Crocs are fine if they aren't your everyday shoe, and they make them in Men's sizes and colors. It's no different than wearing birkenstocks or anything like that. It's a sandal/flip flop/work wear.
Neither crocs nor the abomination that is birkenstocks are comparable to something as innocuous and normal as flip-flops. Dear god man, do you know what you say? Just yucky!

I'll join in on any anti-croc crusade, but a hatred for birkenstocks as well?  Birk's are damn comfortable, and they look just fine on my man-feet, thank you very much!

Mount speed won't affect the time it takes your character's sprite to go from City A to City B, but I believe it affects the amount of game-time that will pass as you head to City B.  In game terms, I think a faster mount means monsters will spawn on roads less frequently. 

I don't think it matters whether or not your mount has wings.

You couldn't share the drain, as the splash-back would be horrendous. You could introduce a P-trap (oh the PUN!) in the built-in-plumbing (again!!) though, and then instead of flushing when you turn on the tap it triggers the flush.

The overhang would prevent the inebriated from parking their #2 in a #1 stall too...

As to the Johnson comment, I'd rather he be free than waiting twice as long and once done having some drunken schmuck trying to piss in the sink I'm washing my hands in.

The real scary part is, urine is pretty much sterile, it would be an interesting science fair project to see what percentage of gas station bathrooms have tapwater less sterile than piss.

9871  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Updated 32 dead at Virginia tech shooting on: April 17, 2007, 01:31:39 PM
Here's an approximate timeline of events:

Quote
Here's an approximate timeline of the events as police and university officials have been able to recreate them.

7:15am

Monday morning dawns with students getting up early to head to class.

At the West Ambler Johnston co-ed dorm, home to 895 students, there's some kind of incident, and shots are fired. Police are called and find two people dead. They conclude it was an isolated domestic incident and that the danger is over.

8am

The doors of Norris Hall open for the day, as students enter the engineering building to go to class. Nothing seems out of the ordinary.

9:26am

With many students unaware of the violence in their midst, word of the dorm shooting comes in a widely distributed email that's received across the campus.

"Subject: Shooting on campus," the header reads.

"A shooting incident occurred at West Amber Johnston earlier this morning. Police are on the scene and are investigating.

"The university community is urged to be cautious and are asked to contact Virginia Tech Police if you observe anything suspicious or with information on the case. Contact Virginia Tech Police at 231-6411.

"Stay attuned to the http://www.vt.edu . We will post as soon as we have more information."

As far as authorities are concerned, whoever fired the shots has escaped the sprawling grounds of the university and is gone. It is now a police matter and the university believes it's safe for classes to continue.

9:45am

It's now more than two hours after the initial shooting and the lines at the Blacksburg, Va. 911 outpost light up en masse. Panicked students call on their cell phones to tell authorities someone has come to Norris Hall and begun randomly firing weapons at people inside.

His first target is a professor in one of the classrooms. He then turns his weapons on the stunned students.

9:55am

A second email is sent out by university brass. This one is far more terse and a lot more chilling.

"Subject: Please stay put," it begins.

"A gunman is loose on campus. Stay in buildings until further notice. Stay away from all windows."

10am

Within minutes of the second email, the university starts phoning resident advisers and asking them to knock on the doors of classrooms and dorm rooms, to spread the word about the danger faster.

But the campus is huge - some 1,050 hectares in length, described by one official as the size of a small city - and getting to everyone in such a busy environment over such a wide area is almost impossible.

While all this is going on, a gunman continues to blaze away in Norris Hall, picking off victims one at a time in rapid succession. His motive remains unknown, but his methodical task is succeeding all too well. Dozens lie either dead or seriously wounded.

10:05am

Students trying to escape the carnage find chains on some doors, closing off their only escape routes. As the killer approaches, many break open windows, jumping several storeys to the ground in desperation, preferring broken limbs to the possibility of being gunned down.

10:16am

The University sends out a third email.

"Subject: All Classes Canceled; Stay where you are.

"Virginia Tech has canceled all classes. Those on campus are asked to remain where there are, lock their doors and stay away from windows. Persons off campus are asked not to come to campus."

Police are on scene, hustling shocked students off the property and away from the area, still unsure what they're dealing with.

Many are told to enter unaffected buildings and wait for the all-clear signal. Others are simply shooed off campus altogether. No one else is allowed on the premises.

As TV stations, networks and the web pick up the story, word starts spreading quickly - there has been a massacre at Norris Hall.

10:52am

The fourth and final email comes out of Virginia Tech's administration office. By now, just about everyone knows the worst has happened, as ambulances and police cars occupy the campus around the classroom building.

The email contains some details that would later prove to be false, but was based on the best information available as confusion swirled.

"Subject: Second Shooting Reported; Police have one gunman in custody

"In addition to an earlier shooting today in West Ambler Johnston, there has been a multiple shooting with multiple victims in Norris Hall.

"Police and EMS are on the scene.

"Police have one shooter in custody and as part of routine police procedure, they continue to search for a second shooter.

"All people in university buildings are required to stay inside until further notice.

"All entrances to campus are closed."

10:55am

First reports indicate 22 are dead and at least that number are injured.

But as the afternoon goes on, the scope of the tragedy escalates. The death toll rises to first 29, then 30, and finally settles at 32. The number of injured sits at around 15.

A doctor at one of the local hospitals indicates the gunman was extreme in his cruelty. He fired at least three bullets into every single victim, and all the wounded patients he examined were suffering from some kind of gun related injury.

"There were leg, arm, head, face (injuries), the more critical ones actually had head or facial shots. There were chest shots, leg shots, arm shots. He was just shooting to kill," relates ER physician Dr. Joseph Cacioppo.

11am

It has been more than three and a half hours after the initial shooting, when Norris Hall finally falls silent. The gunman saved his final bullet for himself, leaving the final bloody toll at 33.
9872  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Updated 32 dead at Virginia tech shooting on: April 17, 2007, 01:23:45 PM
So from this article, it appears "[The University President, Charles Steger] said investigators did not know there was a shooter loose on the campus in the interval between the two shootings because the first could have been a murder-suicide."

I know it's all to easy to point fingers and lay blame for these horrible situations, but I hope it doesn't turn out that the 2nd shooting really did occur because they just assumed he already killed himself.

I look forward to your analysis of Gillette's pricing strategy - $/blade when you buy the initial razor package is great!  $/blade for razor refills?  Not so much.  Perhaps you use a straight razor that you hand-whet on a stone? slywink

Er, that's a terrible analogy to another industry that rips off its customers.

Huh?  It's an entirely appropriate analogy.  This is how businesses work.  The holy grail for every software company is an annuity-based business where they can charge you money over and over again after the initial sale.  You have the option to stop shaving.

The razor analogy is a good one, but you didn't set it up equivalent to the Guitar Hero situation.

Right now you pay, let's say $10 for the shaver with one razor, and $10 for a 3-pack refill.  Ignoring the cost of the shaver handle (like we're ignoring the cost of the packaging, shipping, and base game for GH), you initially pay $10/razor, and then $3.33 per razor in a 3-pack.

It gets cheaper when you're buying just the cartridge.

If we were to equate it to Guitar Hero, the refill would cost twice as much per cartridge.  They would have to charge you $20/cartridge, or $60 for a 3-pack.

You're paying twice as much for each cartridge, and you're not even getting the razor handle along with it.

Now it's equivalent to Guitar Hero.
