1. Site has white background in chrome browser on mobilt Apr 15, 2014, 10:07 Will W
 
Is anyone else pulling up the full site with a white instead of blue background in chrome on android? I tried in flashfox and the site comes up correctly, and the Chrome browser on my desktop and on my nexus 7 both work fine, it's just the chrome browser on my phone that's pulling up a white background.

for iOS and Android

For some reason it won't work with any of my devices, one of which is the 2013 Nexus 7. :-( I wonder what you need to get it to work, the only thing the store page lists is android 2.3.4, which would make me think it works with older devices on up.

Hmm, must be some routing trouble between here and there then. I'm taking a huge hit on my ping about 9 jumps out where Time Warner hands over after the NYC location. I tried a few sites, and it seems like only theirs isn't working for me for some reason. I know it's not a bandwidth issue, no students on campus so we've got an almost empty pipe to play with.

Walking Dead season 2 is tempting at 25% off, but I read a couple of lack-luster reviews about Episode 1. Anyone have any first hand knowledge about the first episode of season 2? Is it really just too much warm up and not enough story?

I'm thinking I may want to wait for the next couple of episodes to come out, I'm sure another 25% or more off will pop up.

I'm not sure what she did wrong. According to her, it was off while she was driving. Why the anger?

Damn, missed that 25% off X Rebirth code. That's what I was waiting for on a purchase....guess I'll have to wait for the next one.

You are never too old to go trick or treating, provided you dress up. I will admit however I find it a bit odd when a pair of teenagers shows up asking for candy but has no younger children they are escorting and are in normal street clothes. I always tell my wife we should have an "apple" bowl so we can offer just fruit to those folks, but she won't let me. Perhaps she is right, I don't really want my car covered in shaving cream.

Just figured I'd mention, I don't give apples to kids who are just out in street clothes begging for candy. I have a candy bar bowl with full size bars for them. They tend to be the ones who are out for mischief, and I've found that full sized candy bars usually mean no TP, eggs, or shaving cream in my yard come the morning. Apples share too much in common with the a baseball....and I value my windows. :-)

That being said, there used to be a woman who gave out candy/caramel apples in my neighborhood when I was a kid. You ALWAYS went to her house first because they were home made and delicious.

Thank god they're finally putting up signs letting me know I can text at rest stops. Such a great way to spend tax dollars in a state flush with cash to waste. I wasn't sure where I could stop...I mean, it said rest stop so I didn't know if I could text there without bothering resting drivers, now I know where I can stop to text! These signs will make a world of difference!

All of the rewards people are paying for are only for the MMO server as well...due to the sheer amount of "paid for" permanently insured ships that must be out there by now, I'm not planning to play on the MMO server, but will look for community run servers. I get that they're saying it's not Pay to Win because you can earn the stuff in game, but if you can run a trade route faster then me on day 1 because of a ship you bought, in a dynamic economy with "pigeon drones" spreading the contract, you have effectively bought your way over me.

I'll most likely play single player until the private server portion is released. I spent the bare minimum to get alpha/beta access. I think I got the Scooty-Puff Jr. as a ship with it too, not sure.

Blue, a site (guessing it's for your ads) called c.berstad.com keeps hanging and not letting me view the actual website. I get the ads and a blank, blue page. I have to refresh a bunch of times for it to let me see the actual page.

I had this same problem yesterday with the same site.

This sounds like the part of Miner Wars I was interested in when I bought in. They over promised on Miner Wars and couldn't deliver everything they wanted to, and haven't done anything to make me think they've learned from that mistake. If it comes out and gets good reviews or has a demo that shows me they have followed through on what they're presenting this time...I'll most likely consider a purchase. Miner Wars hurt their pre-purchase reputation for me, however.

I'm disappointed that there's no mention of zombies in this highly anticipated sequel. Okay some Tropicans walk around like zombies but that's different.


They're saving that for the first DLC, can't show all of your cards at once. :-)

I'm guessing promotional deal for the preseason games. Will check back when i sign up

History says no, but no guarantee. It was season long last year. No guarantee how long it will go for (says so right on their page) this season, but I was able to watch 4 games at once + red zone + NFL network from my "vacation home" in the netherlands last year.

How it works, specifically, is that the NFL is trying to grow their brand in Europe and doesn't have a distribution deal in the Netherlands. So....they give away Football for free...costs them nothing, or a minimal number of Netherlands subscribers to try and get a bigger fan base. It's like playing a game in England....

VPN is the key word here. I'm not tech support, but I'll at least return a couple e-mails if you need advice on how to watch your local teams during cable/CBS arguments......

Don't know who will check comments this late in the day...but if anyone is interested NFL game pass (Sunday ticket for non-us IP addresses) is free if your IP address is in the Netherlands.

In other news, I had good experiences with Strong VPN last year.

The whole way this played out is almost like she's escaping her EQ cult.

That's the vibe I get from this. Some of those people posting in that thread were creepy IMO.

I generally ignore comments with personal attacks. There are a few people around who like to do it with a greater then average frequency, and I just don't put any value their input into ANY discussions. There's also the ignore feature.

I'm all for stopping personal attacks between users, but I think that's the extent of where the moderation should go. I've seen a few users who will report someone...and then quote that very post and REPLY to it. That tells me that person is just doing a "I'm going to tattle on you and get the last word in".

I like text only on the front page. It's the way it's always been and the way I've always liked it. The blues page is very clean and strait forward....and if you want to see pictures you can click through to get to them. That said...it is your site and if you want to expand readership then a change like that may help. I rarely visit other game sites because lots of them end up looking like a clown vomited on a tie-die shirt with all of the pictures, videos, and other random crap they try to squeeze onto a page.

Just my 2 cents.
