6. CBS & TWC Aug 7, 2013, 06:52 Ant

So the CBS blackout included dropping the premium Showtime channels to which my sister subscribes for the sole purpose of riding out the end of Dexter. In addition to dropping Showtime, they deleted all previously recorded shows. How's that for customer service.
Wow, deleted recordings too on DVR? Nuts.

Also, CBS blocked TWC IP addresses for their videos.

OTA FTW if you can do it.

I once had something stolen from my apartment. It was something saleable, so I immediately started watching Craigslist. Sure enough a couple days later, it showed up on CL. So I contacted the guy posing as a buyer, met him, and confirmed the serial number. I told the guy I had to go withdraw the cash to buy it. Then I called the cops, met the guy, and when he brought it out, they jumped out of the bushes and nabbed him.
What did he steal?

Thanks for posting these Blue. I've downloaded a bunch over the years, to the point that my daughter read's Blue's on the weekend to find out which game is free.
I have been sending these to Blue if you haven't noticed. You should just go to http://game.giveawayoftheday.com/ every weekend. Don't wait for Blue and me!

I figured you were going to say you still use a fire, the cave wall, and your hands to create shadows that represent various games.

Yep, you got it. >:)

How about business? What do you think they prefer?

Pads are near pure entertainment. Portable DVD players feel rejected.

If you have a job where you can get everything done on a tablet, you're not actually working
I have seen my former boss use his iPad for meetings, news anchormen using tablets instead of papers, etc.

19. FTP Aug 4, 2013, 15:11 Ant

The only people coming out ahead in FTP games are casuals who play for free, aka freeloaders. Average or hardcore players who don't want to be restricted on content end up paying more than a normal monthly fee on average, to make up the difference. Sure, FTP is great...if you're a casual noob who just wants to check the game out, play occasionally, etc. However, the players that actually keep the game afloat are getting screwed. I predict the FTP trend actually reverses itself in the next decade as more and more people catch on to this fad.

Yep. Even a game with basically 10 times more subs than any other game with a sub (or had one), that $15 x millions per month isn't enough still. The good news is most FTP games I've played I average maybe $15 spent. I'm happy for the mega rich for once and them dropping $1000's, keep it com'in. I think nothing of your maxed out characters, I just run past you like the rest, I don't see you or really anyone. I play a mmo like a single/small coop game. Yep that is what the genre has evolved to for many. Just doing the content like a single/coop rpg, running past others as if they are cardboard.
I read that as file transfer protocol instead of F2P. Haha.

I hate checkpoint saves, but honestly, I only restarted a level once, and it was the very last one (I over-estimated the tactical situation, reloaded, and beat the final "boss" in a single round).

"Save anywhere" should be available on pretty much any PC game, though.

I have a weird relationship with this game. I liked it just enough to be annoyed that it is so short.
Games should have both save type options. Checkpoint save should be optionable to the players.

The sooner Flash and Java die off completely the safer we'll all be.
Then, we will have other problems. Haha.

I don't have Java installed since nothing really uses it. However, plenty of web sites still use Flash.
