Damn that Blizzard, they really need to pay attention to the boot market.
Yeah well I've only got myself to blame...for posting with 3 hours of sleep. Blizz not paying attention to the boot market is to blame damn it!

And decided to resub at least for 3 months to see how the game has changed. Though I think I'm going to transfer at least my mage off my old server that I was playing on, it's got a 0.3-.5:1 A/H ratio now, and when I was playing it was 1:.9 or 1:1.2. Back at release it was an ultra high pop server and one of the first servers to get a split.

The bad thing is once you get superpowers less than 1 hour into the campaign you never have to drive again. It's all running and leaping across skyscrapers like somekinda Superman/Flash/Spiderman hybrid.

That fish shot is wild. Is there an english page for it?
Nope, but if you toss it into google, then wait for the page to load and hit translate you'll get a close approximation.

Really? You can see them managing to scrap something together out of the 300+ books that are out. Well I suppose, but if they can't scrape something out of Thrawn and Daala, they've either got the laziest writers, or the poorest.

Oh and blue, if you're using Win7 or 8 I'd recommend trying shark007's codec pack

I'm thinking Windows 9 might be the end of every other Windows release being ok. Prediction: They'll stick with Metro/Big Icons/Walled Garden
Apparently next release of Win8 restores the start menu fully, though that's rumor mill. Though the rumor mill was right about 8.1 bringing back the start button.

And oddly enough their stock price has nearly doubled in the last 8 months since they got a new CEO. So, either something is happening behind the scenes or there's a lot more investor confidence in the new CEO fixing what numbnuts started doing. The problem of course is that there's a lot to fix isn't there?

Have other metropolitan areas started going to this slurry/liquid based stuff to put on the road like they have here? I was noticing the other day as I was driving around, that there is a base temp that the stuff is no longer effective. They say somewhere around 5 degrees F it quits working. Well, no put that at -10, and the roads turned into a fuggin ice rink!
Depends on what they're using, most places in Canada use a chemical slurry on their roads instead of a salt based one since it can be used to -5 to -10F, after that they switch to sand and gravel. Though in most places where it hits that cold, especially in the mountain areas of the country it's all sand and gravel.

It shouldn't freeze at that point...if it was mixed properly, and the levels were right. Is this their first year of using it there? If so, you've probably got guys who have no idea on wtf to do with the equipment.

My god, it's 3dfx and glide all over again.
For that to be true, you'd need to have AMD cockblocking like nvidia is doing with physx. Which isn't happening at the moment, unless nvidia decides to throw another hissyfit and block their cards from working with mantle then it could happen. Though that might be a huge boon for AMD now wouldn't it?

Of course it will work, but if you want the benefits of Mantle, you need to have an ATI card.
Yeah not true, you can have an nvidia card and it'll work just fine.

Unlike nVidia who threw a hissy fit over physx, AMD isn't pulling that BS. Funny thing is...you could even use a nvidia card beside a ati/amd card and have it work. Until nvida threw a super-hissy fit and blocked physx from working if it detected a amd card.

Mash, what do you mean by desktop mode? So it's a full on OS. I can use Open Office with it and other business apps to do actual work on? Valve really needs to make this well known if they expect people to even want to try it. What's are the pros and cons? Why would I want to use this over another OS? And if I can install it on a PC then why would I buy a Steambox?

Yep, it's a full OS, and you can do whatever you want for it. Can't remember what they're using for desktop mode off the top of my head. As for pros/cons? Besides that it's still in an alpha stage, and you will have errors, well I guess it's for those of us that like to experiment.

As for the increase/desire/catching on? It most likely will, especially with mantle, and OGL coming back into the limelight.

It's not just for games, it has a desktop mode. And it appears to now have ATI support. Oh and if you want to download it, you can get it here.

So you think all major consoles and Windows are going to dump DirectX, and all developers will simultaneously jump on board as well just because ATI wants them to?

Since that appears to be exactly what's happening? I'd say so. Mantle guts the overhead for cross-platform development by a huge amount, meaning you can develop something on one platform and release it on all others in little to no time.

The installer is functional. I have on a separate drive, not in the default location with a custom folder.
Sure it's functional, if you do what I said. Using anything else -- unless they've patched the launcher in the last 2 hours, will cause it to hardlock.

An example: Installing to drives
D,E,F,J:\bethseda = hardlock
D,E,F,J:\launcher = hardlock

Installing to drives
D,E,F,J:\Program Files(x86)\... = fine

Got one as well, guess we'll see if it's worthwhile or not.

As a heads up for anyone, the installer is fully fubared if you don't include Program Files(x86)\Bethesda\Launcher\ for your install path, using \bethsda\ or \launcher\ will cause it to hardlock.

McAfee rebranded as Intel Security.

Given all the crazy shit John McAfee has been doing lately, I don't blame them.
More like the crazy shit that's attached to the McAfee AV label, it needed a rebranding.

Doors frozen solid, hinges would not budge. I finally got his trunk open and he was able to lower the backseats, crawl into there and start the car so it could warm up. Fun times.
Easy way to stop that from happening ever again. Tell him to go to your nearest auto parts supply store and pick up a spray can, tube, or can of silicon emulsion(it's what the material is, actual name varies by brand). Apply to rubber on doors, and that's that.
