Now maybe we can start curtailing some of the nastier effects of this stupid Second Amendment America's trapped under.

I can only assume that's sarcasm since she's said during her hearings that she would abide by previous Supreme Court precedents, thus she wouldn't change the interpretation of the 2nd amendment.

It's because there are people (Al Sharpton comes to mind) who "fight" racism, but stand to lose a ton if they actually win. They're like racism consultants...if they did their job properly they'd make themselves obsolete...so their interest lies in prolonging the feud instead of trying to promote healing.

News Comments > Funcom on AoC's Turnaround
6. Re: Funcom on AoC's Turnaround Jul 10, 2009, 12:15 Will W
 
I just can't see giving Funcom any of my money ever again after their lies and intentional deception at the initial launch. Their launch wasn't just rocky, nor a standard MMO launch, they actually lied to people (DX10....on the box..."radio button" in beta was "active"...2 days before launch they announce it won't be in there?) and I would prefer to vote with my dollars. To each his own.

Wonder if that student ID on "The Answer is NOT always C".... is his social security number....

They lost me when they failed to fulfill their promises in a timely manner. They may have improved the game, but I have my doubts since they haven't even tried to lure past subscribers back with a "free weekend". Any company that will hide something from consumers like a complete lack of DX10 (advertised on the box.....) until one or two days before the launch...and even had the radio button active in the beta client (even if it wasn't doing anything)...is not a trustworthy company IMO.

Although I may like the idea of electric vehicles that are quiet....I'd really have to see some major improvements in the electric grid and generation to think that electric vehicles could be useful. All summer long I have to shut down "non-essential" systems to conserve power for the grid...I can't see cars going "plug-in" in a big way without some major changes to the way we produce and distribute power in this country.

Additionally, I'd like to see if the environmental benefit we get from centrally produced power is offset by the loss from transmission and storage, and the "wave" like pattern of usage. I think we need alot more research done before we throw too much weight behind electric vehicles as "the future".

I've gotten refunds from the folks at Valve with a simple request, 2 times in fact. Both times they confirmed that it was due to special circumstances (the announcement of FarCry 2's DRM was one, and I forget what the second was...).

I've got to agree, if you're in a sub-urban area go with a pellet or BB gun....if you're in a rural area a .22 is a lot more effective. I've hit them with a BB gun or Pellet gun and they don't get the hint. Fortunately a .22 doesn't hint.

I think the issue has less to do with who gets to watch Jerry Springer and more to do with how to reach the populace in an emergency. I personally think that radio can fill the void nicely and the whole thing just needs to move on, but I can understand the concern.

I can no longer get 3 of 4 channels I used to get because of my distance to the stations (even if I super sized AND got a directional antenna) combined with my location in a valley. I don't watch Springer, soaps, or American Idol. I'm not a republican.

Squirrels will hog down all the food you put out there, and they'll also prevent the birds from getting to the food. If you don't mind paying the extra money to feed squirrels then you should get them their own feeder or you'll get very few birds once the squirrels take over. Depending on how many you have in your area (I've counted up to 17 at once....) the price can really add up quickly.

There were some attractive ladies in those photos, and I wouldn't kick any of them out of bed, but I seem to recall booth babes being a lot hotter a few years ago. Oh well, I suppose I'll chalk it up to aging.

Man, I was hoping this was a remake of the 1987 Atari arcade game. Damn.

2. Team Fortress 2 Mobile May 31, 2009, 16:16 Will W
 
I would buy that TF2 Mobile, it looks really cool, but I think it's made of matboard/cardboard type stuff and not metal. I'd love to hang a metal version in my garden to scare away the deer!

You could always try one of the products that are supposed to control the spots in the lawn. Here's an example (but Dr. Foster and Smith are usually more pricey then other places, so shop around)

Nothing shows dedication like renaming a studio. Not good support, customer relations, or even a sound business model show the devotion to present and future business like renaming a game studio.

No, NetDevil is making Lego and JGE. Marvel is just a license "Gazillion" acquired. For me the verdict is still out on them....dunno if they're gonna be good or not. A bunch of venture capitalists who see the value in investing in games is good....when they plan to make a bunch of wow-clones and even admit it in their press release, that's bad...IMO at least.

Dear god! Something a child wants but can't have! What are the parents to do, it's not like they can say "no" to a child.
