I've blown a billion on a single item re-roll, so I'm sort of glad with the way it is. If gold was more finite, then when you get to 20 million per re-roll it would get really frustrating.
Wow, that's semi-impressive. Don't suppose you know how many re-rolls that is?

One reasonably sized earthquake in the San Joaquin valley and it gets a lot worse...

1.5 trillion dollars later, and this is the only way they can get that piece of shit F-35 in the air!
You'll find me near the front of the line complaining about the F-35, but the article seems to only mention them in a second hand way. They claim the new launch system is designed to cause less wear and tear on all aircraft and the pilots. Which, if true, seems to be a reasonable design goal for a new aircraft carrier launch system.

...all because in its infinite wisdom France had decided to tax home A/C units to the point that only very rich people could afford them...
You know when that happened I wondered why there was so little AC in France. I don't recall ever reading/hearing about your suggested cause. Not saying you're wrong, just a bit surprised that if true the press didn't spin that angle a little more. I had always written off to some social/cultural thing which I was ignorant of...

Definitely dependent on the game and the dame -- I can see either side winning with depending on the selections.

ie. March Madness: On the one hand, Kentucky is the prohibitive favorite and I like to root for the underdogs. On the other I'm so sick and tired of hearing about the 1976 Indiana team who was the last undefeated champion and I truly dislike Indiana.. so pretty much I'm in a win-win situation..

I'm glad there's finally some organization to it, but for fuck's sake, Valve, is it that hard to allow me to rename the things? Can't one of you wheel your desk over to the "make Steam more useful" corner and work like ten fucking minutes on it?
I seem to run into this kind of bad application design continually, and it drives me absolutely batty. Things like you can rename X but not Y or you can search on X criteria but not Y. And you just sit there look at your screen and think, "Really? Did you guys really put that little thought into the design?"

Application interface design is apparently either considered a waste of time or pays so little no one wants to do it. Not sure what the actual problem is...

Apologies, don't feel like reading all the posts on this topic. I'm guessing someone must have already said this..

But what exactly has Valve been doing for the past 5 years?

Yeah, well -- wander the Blue's News Forum and you are likely to find information you had absolutely no interest in -- part of the game.

Most? Don't know about that. A lot of them? Certainly. I'm a full blown mutt myself, German, Danish, Irish, English, Dutch, I think there's even some American Indian in there somewhere -- but my ancestry has never really been of much interest to me.

As others have indicated, Southern California and especially the San Joaquin valley are in big trouble when it comes to water. And the issues mentioned here are only part of it. One badly placed medium earthquake would destroy the dike system in the valley in a way which would take years to recover, if it could be recovered at all. Basically it is all a ticking time bomb, and the question is when, not if.

Do I understand this correctly? We are talking about being blocked from following a twitter feed? Aren't there easy ways around this?

Tsunami footage: It is truly amazing the power water has.

Gymnast coach: I agree, miraculous might be overly generous. More like, "I know this kid has problems with this move, so I have to be in position to help in case she misses."

I was thinking something similar -- I was thinking unless you have some kind of water filtration system removing "all" material out of your water, how long before that doesn't work? Water where I live is reasonably "soft" but there is still some lime build up.

Huh? Those records are kept already. Using GMT everywhere would just make it easier to figure things like that out.

What? Just because you use GMT doesn't mean your local businesses have to open at 0800 GMT. Does it really matter if when you get up you call it 0600 Eastern or 1100 GMT? Does it matter that your work day might be 1400-2200 GMT instead of 0900-1700 Eastern? Of course not. It is a label and nothing more.
