Intermittent problems of any sort are difficult to troubleshoot. Blue, would you mind expounding on the issue as it might help others. Muchos Gracias

It was a combination of a couple of bad cable connections in my house causing packet loss along with a repeater on my node that was over-amplifying (or whatever is the equivalent) the signal.

I received another, as well as an ad that would not let me scroll down the page until it was done animating.

And then it started animating again and popped me back up the page.

That's ugly. Apologies. Do you recall what the ad was for?

Sorry about the format glitch that broke comments for this story. It's fixed now.

Great Steam is doing well, but "concurrent records" every month isn't impressive - it's expected and would mean just as little if they were on the decline.

I would argue a 5% jump after two months seems significant.

its called "hard reset" and it should fix everything.. if it doesnt, then its time to worry

Indeed, and this is something I had experienced before, but since it was always something I did when the phone was powered up, I guess I viewed it as a ctrl-alt-delete function that rebooted it when it was running. Funny feeling so technically ignorant. Obviously one of the reasons I have an iPhone is because I want to deal with it like an appliance.

Hold the power button + home button for a couple of seconds. No result? Keep trying for a few times. Worked like a charm for my father last week, same issue.

Thank you *very* much. I could kiss you.

That was the only version of pressing and holding various buttons I failed to try. Phone came back like a champ, and only had 28% battery remaining (it never gets that low how I use it), but it seems none the worse for wear.

P.S. The men "failing" article was an attack on a new study about online porn and video games, and nothing to do with feminism. I am starting to lose faith that article links can stand alone, and I may have to start doing more summarizing of what they contain. I prefer to steer readers toward the source of content, and am not a fan of sites rewriting perfectly good stories to hog traffic, but it seems to be a disservice to allow vague headlines to derail topics.

Of course you are entitled to take the discussions wherever you want, but I am going to have to take some responsibility for this sort of recurring confusion.

Hmm, my 4 year old Samsung Infuse has no burn in and no pixel loss after 4 years of daily use, and it's Super AMOLED. I thought the technology was maturing.

Your phone isn't on for large periods of time and it has a lot less pixels so there's less concern about blue pixel lifepsan. Everyone has given up on OLED and has invested in quantum dot instead, its cheaper and consumers aren't willing to pay the crazy price premiums for OLED sets that are costly to manufacture.

But, hey, how about those Optimus keyboards, huh?

Erm. I don't follow American Football. So what exactly is achieved by slightly deflating the ball? Is it easier to catch? Throw? It sure as hell wont go further when kicked (laws of physics)...

They use an entirely different set of balls for kicking. For QBs ball pressure is a personal preference: Apparently Brady is one who prefers a softer ball to grip and throw.

There are also very suspicious stats about the Patriots' lack of fumbling that may relate to a softer ball being easier for the runners to grip as well.

Hey Blue, I just loaded up the site a minute or so ago and Firefox asked me if I would allow "Starsizzle" to access my location data. I obviously declined, but just thought I'd bring it to your attention.




Thanks
I don't know if he reads here often. Try e-mailing him?

Actually I saw this, thanks for the report. I've seen a location request myself, and I am working at making sure none of us see one again.

Wow, that's awesome, Blue!

I tried doing children's book adaptations but after doing ones for Natural Born Killers and Se7en, I gave up.

Haha, very nice. To be clear, she is working on producing and editing these books, not writing them.

Did your wife have a hand in writing some of the previous SW younger adult books (Like Young Jedi Knights)?

No, this is pretty recent, she's only been working on Star Wars stuff the last couple of years.

My friend took her dog over to her dad's house. He's got cancer and takes medical marijuana to mitigate it. Anyway, his whole stash of hash brownies was on the table and she didn't know, so the dog jumped on the table and ate them all. Died a week later.

Holy shit, thats pretty hardcore. Bet it wasn't the marijuana that killed him though. A lot of chocolate and butter goes into brownies too.

It was surely more than a little attributable to the pot. This thread quickly hit on three things you should never feed to your dog: Chocolate, grapes, and marijuana. All three can kill them. Pot brownies with raisins would be a triple-threat.

My dog eats poop but won't eat saltines.

I believe, as they say, it is your move, Mr. Blue.

Poop? AKA doggie caviar? I think a lot more dogs eat poop than broccoli.

This is why I hope someone comes up with a way to make private servers instead of having to play with random players and hackers, or just being able to use whatever FOV or mod I want with friends.

You can easily start a friends-only, crew-only, or invite-only server.

But (if I understand it right) it's still through Social Club, so they're still tracking it. And if they see a mod they don't like...



Haha, caught me in the second before I added that via an edit.

Also, hint to airline captains: If you're diving 20000 feet because you're worried about a loss of cabin pressure, ANNOUNCE THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE DOING! That way the people on board your plane don't think they are plummeting to their deaths and pass out from fear.

This really doesn't seem that hard to frikkin' comprehend.

Just pay attention when the captain extinguishes the no pants-shitting light.

Smoke detectors have an expirated date...?

How do I find out what that date is? Is it on the unit somewhere?

Both our old and new units have a sticker where you are supposed to write the installation date and the projected replacement date. Even if you didn't fill it out, there may be a sticker on your indicating its projected lifespan. Seems 10 years is typical, but YMMV.
