MxxCon, VideoSift is ONLY friendly if you share the same political and personal views as the 10 major contributors do.

I do not post there, but I often read comments; and it is full of personal attacks. More then I see here to be honest.


I think everybody is looking through things with roes colored glasses. The general attitude here is no different then any other message board IMHO.

Blue, I got to be honest. I do not really understand why you do not have shirts and other swag for sell.

If I had to guess, he got stuck with a lot of the last batch.

But yeah, I'd love to see some merch.

Yes, but now he does not have to do anything. Another company would handle all of it and take part of the profits.

Blue, I got to be honest. I do not really understand why you do not have shirts and other swag for sell. There are plenty of companies that handle all the manufacturing, distribution, etc etc. Yes they take a large part of the profit, but you do nothing and continue to get money out of it. Even if it only made you enough to buy a lunch ever so often, its free money and makes the people who wants the swag happy! You only have to put in a one time investment of a little bit of time.

Yes, it is nice Beamer. I love my WP7/7.5

I really need to update my apps to WP7.5 for fast app switching. But search 'erlensoft' in the Marketplace and check out some of my apps (note, I was just doing it to learn and play around, I have not done anything in a long while). Some of them are pretty fun though.

In short: It's nice that there's one gaming page that's not made for retarded 13 year olds - with dyslexia and a profound disinterest in world affairs - surfing the web on a netbook with a 1024x600 resolution.

I agree with nutshell completely.

As for new content ideas that would not make you do all the work. Interviews do not seem like it would be all that time consuming to try and pump out 1 a week.

Also, reviews. You do not even have to do all the reviewing your self. I really like the 'discussion' type reviewing; where multiple people give their perspective on the same aspect of the game in the same 'article'. I think reviews should be devoid of stupid scores in the end, that is just silly. Just because you do not like something does not mean I will not; but a proper discussion of the various aspects of the game are great. It is also nice when reviewers point out things I might not have noticed, or provided information I might no have known, etc.

WP7.5 does not lack tethering. Some older phones do not have the chipset to support it; but it is mostly a call of the carrier to support it or not.

... and tell me what the hell the ... Jar Jar... ....have to do with anything.

It is simple really. Lucas thinks he is so deep and the audience is so stupid, that he needs a character to explain what is happening. That is Jar Jars purpose, through stupid comments and questions. That is C3PO's purpose in the original series. That is Short-Rounds purpose in Temple. There are other examples in his other movies to.

He really thinks he is so deep and you are so stupid that you need this annoying character to explain what is going on in someway.

I prefer the bullets for "less important" news. Some of it is worth discussion, some of it is just worth noting a headline.

I don't know if you meant to imply the hardware reviews as well, but those need to stay bulleted. I don't know if anyone actually reads those regularly, or even glances at that. However, when I'm looking to buy new hardware, I will always search it here and read the reviews you've linked to. In other words, I find the hardware reviews totally useless, until I have a major use for them, haha.

To be specific, the sections I picture dispensing with with are: Metaverse, Legal Briefs, Safety Dance, and possibly even Tech Bits. I'd be less certain about the fate of the more game-related Consolidation and Mobilization sections. Sections which are bulleted but which would definitely stay are Screenshots, Previews, Game and Hardware reviews, On Sale, and etc.


No. I like all those! Keep em! Your job in life is to please me and me alone.

I like the tech bits, but I understand how you want them below the main game news.

Could you have the server software edited to insert them after the gaming news. That is, you do the gaming news first and it gets onto the website to the public, and then go back and do the tech bits and such, but the system will put it after the main news.


The down side is, some people might load it after gaming news but before techbits and might miss it and not come back.

Stubbs Wicked Chicken Wing Sauce is not all that spicy. Either you are just a big pansy and making things out to be spicier then they really are (or you truly believe they are spicy when they are not); or you had an unusually strong batch of the sauce. You might die from other errors in the sauce soon, then.

If by flopped you mean flipped Blue. Various companies have computer software that scans video websites and compares the video to their catalog. By mirroring the image, it tricks the software and avoids copyright infringement detection.

This is just a silly concept, by name. The whole argument is flawed.

With a boxed copy, I own that box and game disc. I can break the game disc, use it to play the game, etc.

With digital distribution, you do not own the game; you have a license to use the game on your system.

The real name for "trading digitally distributed items" is actually called RENTING! And you do not need an economists to explain renting to you.....

All right, guys... who let Richard Stallman get online?

If you think you don't need economists to figure this one out, then coming up with a pricing model should be pretty simple, right?

(This oughta be fun)

I do not really get your comment about Stallman? Where did I say things should be free? To simplify for you, " when not involved in illegal activity, returning something you do not own but paid money for is called renting". There are plenty of valid economic models for renting out there; it is not complicated. Why call it trade-in and come up with fancy names and economics and all this complicated stuff and try and confuse the consumer and such and call it what it is, renting. Everybody understands renting. It is not a hard concept to grasp.

I am not sure how having the grill closed is a problem.

Never leave the grill open when grilling. You only open it when you flip....

Tell her you were thinking of getting rid of the heater this winter. Turn about and everything.


You say that like that wouldn't be playing into her hands. All this about the AC having been said, I handle the heat better than she does, she's just more fanatical. She actually deals with the cold much better than I do, certainly in part because of all the years she lived in Minnesota.

This is a bluff she would call in a minute.

So then this winter when they are on sale buy one. What woman can resist a sale?

You obviously should have been smarter and done this last winter; but at least you will be ready next summer!
