Ha, thought I was the only one who used camelcamelcamel...wish amazon did that themselves, where I could set a "notify" price and a "buy automatically" price.

For me, my old compound eyes can't see 3D. So definitely, I don't want 3D.

Good old Verizon. "It's damaged beyond repair." No, it's damaged beyond your WILLINGNESS to repair it. Those two are not the same fucking thing.

You want to provide a public service, you get to pay for it when it fucking fails. Verizon offering a shitty VoIP alternative is ridiculous. If the sewer system in a city breaks, is the sewage company going to offer plastic fucking bags as an alternative, because the system is "damaged beyond repair?"

Watch the FCC just fucking nod and agree, though. Corporate mouthpieces.

Verizon should just replace those copper lines with fiber then, but no they won't!

Was there a L4D2 free weekend before? If so, then did a lot changed since then?

They have several times, just more maps and such now, they are always updating. Also the modded servers are getting better and better.
OK. I wasn't sure. I remember playing L4D1 free weekend. I just couldn't remember if I played L4D2. I will try KF first.

And Sony's 4K player is loaded with DRM including online activation for playing movies. No thanks.

That, and I ain't buying a new TV and my whole movie and TV collection yet again. 1080p is good enough. For the average consumer, this will probably fail as much as the recent 3D rage has.
And too expensive. Ha, I still use DVD and 19.5" Sharp CRT TV from January 1996!

yea, I made a quasi den in the basement for the yellow lab. He freaks out and shakes, pants, etc. He finds the furthest place away in the house, which is in the corner in the basement next to washer and dryer.
I must live in a neighborhood of old fogies or something. The most I ever hear of fireworks is dull thuds. Nothing I can imagine would bother any dog despite their superior hearing.

As a co-worker put it last night "Go outside right now if you want to know what it is like in Iraq". He spent 2 years over there as a .50 cal gunner. It was insane. Maybe cause it was on a Thursday, it completely stopped at midnight.....was very weird.
Ha, some people still keep doing illegal fireworks after midnight where I live! Even on non-July 4th like in end of June 2013.

Fireworks aren't allowed in MN. Nothing that leaves the ground or has a report. But that doesn't stop anyone. I grew up in South Dakota, where it was legal 24x7 all year around, only illegal when a burn restriction was on.

Now that I yell at kids on my lawn, I think anything after midnight is just plain disrespectful.
They tend to do that in the local park near where I live. It's too far to yell at them. Haha. Also, it is scary when they shoot fireworks into the sky over the homes. Don't they know fires can happen like in this local news story could happen especailly with the fire seasons?

The OS I don't want with the features I don't like now has ads which I despise...

I'm just going to pull an XP, stick with Win 7 for as long as possible then hope Win 9 stays true to form as the "good" OS...
I am still sticking with XP Pro. SP3 until support is finally gone or my OS/HDD goes bust. I will go to 64-bit 7 when it is time.

If I was 3 blocks further north I'd have 1GBps for $80. Doh.

Edit - also 3 blocks further south or east. Triple doh.
If I was down the hills more, then I could have gotten FIOS! Grr.
