Bad news -- after going 4-0 last week, I was 0-2 this week in our BTI league. Good news -- apparently I'm not alone, I'm still tied with Warpig in first place, joined by xCeed99.

Many times through the year on missed picks I thought, "what was I thinking?!" Not this time, although incorrect I have no grief over picking New England and San Fran. I think both games were toss ups. Have them play those games 100 times and neither will win more that 55 of them.

read between the lines dude. i don't know if you've played much sports in your life but it doesn't sound like you have. sherman wasn't being a punk. he was responding to a punk. crabtree had been mouthing off the entire game and even leading up to the game, so this is what happens when you shut down a punk who'd been disrespecting you for a week or more. that's why afterwards crabtree wasn't angry about it - he knew he got shut up and he had no right to talk anymore.
Even if Crabtree was trash-talking all game long, which wouldn't be surprising, Sherman was still showing his ass in public making himself the loser. He might not be a bad guy, but he was an ass in that interview. Yes, he was emotionally pumped after what was possibly a career defining moment -- it's forgivable.

In this day and age how could you not find the office?
Probably a lack of labeling near or in the building. I never been totally blocked (except when having an incorrect address) -- but I've certainly taken a LONG time to find a place that I would have found in minutes if there were just some reasonable address identifiers used.

My guess -- $19.99 to upgrade to level 90.

I have little to no faith they'll select a story arc for the next Star Wars films which I'll like or appreciate.

Side note: You know what the most disappointing part of finding out Vader was Luke's father? It meant Vader wasn't hundreds of years old, like Yoda. Which I had been assuming...

Then again, I don't understand why so many people like reality TV, yet they do. Once again we see PT Barnum was an exceptionally incisive businessman.
OMG, did you see the ads for the new one? The "10 million Bigfoot Bounty"? Oh and "Party Down South"? I guess if you are entertained by watching people be their idiotic selves, it's pure gold.

Can I lay a bet down in Vegas on whether he finishes it before he dies? He might, but if I was going to bet I think I'd bet against.

Ah ... Blues News! What happened to you? You really have become to PC gaming what that bitter and twisted "No Mutants Allowed" people are to Fallout. Two and a half pages of whining and not one positive comment. Reality check: You all sound like a bunch of self-entitled little bitches. GROW UP!

Well all I can say is FINALLY I can get to play this game as I wanted to play. It may be late in the day, but at least I now get to play.
You are welcome to it. I hope you enjoy it. I know I wouldn't. As I said, it is a step in the right direction but there is no way this game is anywhere close to its' namesake.

It still blows my mind that this game isn't multithreaded. 100% of the simulation/calculations are done on a single thread.
Haha. I didn't know that, but I don't find it that surprising. If they get the basics of the game design wrong why should we think they would have competent people writing the code.

Lot of hate on GRRM. The guy has written five (long) books and I've loved every word of it. He can have all the time he wants.
I have no hate for him, but I'm not going to start reading GoT until he actually finishes it. (Assuming he doesn't die first, which I'm not sure is a safe bet)

Hey, I have a question and thought I'd ask here first. I found my StarCraft II WOL DVD and since I never finished it I thought I'd give it another go. Problem is I have since upgraded to a new computer and haven't a clue what my old BattleNet login/email or password is. I seriously have no reason to ever use Battlenet for anything so just didn't pay attention the first time - I just wanted to play a fucking single-player game - and didn't want to have to keep track of yet another website login password for years to come.

So I create a new Battlenet account and install from DVD, everything seems fine. I play a couple of levels but it turns out I'm just playing the starter edition and it won't play anymore until I upgrade to the full game! WTF? I'm guessing I've just been screwed by Blizzard and I'm SOL unless I want to pay again for the same game.

Or am I just being overly cynical? Since I have the actual physical DVD is there a way to get the full game again? Does Blizzard have a support email or a phone number that they actually respond to?
They do have an customer support number (or at least they used to, I'd be a bit surprised if it went away) but I wouldn't expect a quick response. As to whether you are SOL, *shrug* not sure. As to being overly cynical, I wouldn't say so -- but it's not just Blizzard, this is SOP these days. And yes, it blows.

IIRC, he asked the forumites about that quite a few years back, and interest wasn't very high.
I don't recall that, but I might have missed it. I'd be willing to support it.

Does Starbound have "bosses" like Terraria does? From what I've seen so far (just watching a few youtube Let's Plays) it seems like an expanded Terraria to me. That could be good or bad depending on your preferences.

If there were multiple SOE MMOs I wanted to play this would be great. But considering I've never played any of them, the value is of this is of little concern to me.

Yeah, I was a total wimp and didn't go out today in the sub zero temperatures. However, it will probably still be below zero early tomorrow when I go out to start working on shoveling the driveway. Frankly, I'll not looking forward to it, but hey -- it isn't THAT bad.

So, these are teens/idiots getting thrills by shutting down a service or is there some supposed purpose behind this? I mean, I can understand wanting to fight "the man" but not sure I see what this accomplishes.

I thought someone might mention that, the comment was meant as commentary on the NFL in general. Yes, in this particular matter (billionaire owners) Green Bay is the exception. The rule is a left over from the 1970s and really does need to be changed.
