In my opinion, the problem with this type of poll is that people who are more protective of their privacy are more likely to say "No thank you" when someone calls to poll them so you're not going to get a real sample of the general population, especially with a privacy question. I know I don't like to give people info like age, race, income, political affiliation, etc. If I don't want the government to monitor my information and make a profile of me, why would I want a random pollster to do it? I'd like to know how many people they had to call to get that 1004 person sample size.

It's funny, I stopped watching the show because I started reading the books. I know "the book is better then the movie" is an over used expression, but in the case of this story...it's so complicated and twisted up with the character plot lines that I don't think I could follow it in episodic form. The last couple books get crazy with the plot changes, sub plots, and number of characters being followed. I can only imagine how they'll turn those into a tv show without cutting too much.

Sweet....always loved I76. Now we just need a Rocket Jockey kickstarter.

I'm going to put the 7th guest sound track out there as another great oldie. I still listen to it on occasion.

I was wondering how it could be bad for the oven....but after reading the link, it sounds like they're only referring to electric ovens. I remember getting chemical burns from oven cleaner (my fault) when I was younger, so I try to avoid that stuff like the plague.

Quick question for the residents of Manstovia...what temperature do you smoke a corn beef to? I know....pastrami without the rub. I say 190, my father says 165. The google box isn't much help, opinions seem to vary wildly. Does anyone have experience with smoking corn beef to different temps,or making pastrami?

As for fund raisers I say blue holds a summer cookout at his house, complete with wings and chilli. $40 entry fee and BYOB.

If you think this game is to complex or if thats even a drawback then this isnt the game nor genre for you.

Thanks for the advice.

DG wrote on Mar 15, 2013, 15:20:
Check custom game options, probably can disable.

Indeed, I generally do disable them. I'm a fan of the building/culture/science portion, I don't really like the religion and spying.

I love Civ V, but I wonder if this is going to start getting too complex but after adding religion and spies, I started playing less. I'll prob. get this expansion anyhow because I appreciate the work they put in and enjoy the new Civs....plus you can always turn off religion and esp. in the game settings.

In our mid 30's and living 45 minutes apart, this is the only game my friends and I will actually get together and lug computers to one house for a night of drinking and Civ. It plays so much better in person, especially when we take a smoke break and yap about what's going on in the game and try to bluff about how great we're each doing. I don't think we've yet completed a game....it gets to a point where it's 3 AM and there's an obvious winner.

The original 7th Guest had one of my favorite sound tracks. I hope they bring back "The Fat Man" for the music again.

Agreed, I bought ARMA 2 + CO to check out this mod and IMO it's not worth the purchase for the mod (I don't play ARMA 2 otherwise). I haven't played it in a few months, but the last time I did people were teleporting other players into "thunderdome" situations, or out into the ocean to drown. That could have been fixed by now. Tents were losing items, or just plain becoming unaccessable, people would server hop ("ghost") into your camp so that they didn't have to fight you to get your stuff, and of course plenty of people would sit around just shooting at fresh respawns, but AFAIK that's a working as intended thing.

I thought the offensive player initiated the contact, and that the no-call was a good one. The ball was catch-able, and it did land on the stripe, however when it was "catch high" it was in-bounds, or at least reachable for someone who was in-bounds.

Anyone else have the winning score on their squares till that safety? Cost me a $1000 end of game prize, and I saw it coming a mile away....but I was hoping they wouldn't do it since a free-kick could tie it....and Akers kicking off a tee is one of the more dangerous guys out there.

I wondered why he posted a link to the web site...like he was telling people where to find the hacks. Then I clicked on the link, and found it wasn't the site....A little google with the guy's name and "artificialaiming" and I found out the site is artificialaiming.net and that dude appears to make the hacks (is on staff at least).

Maybe he's just trying to tell people not to buy the hacks there?

Are you high on the marijuana, son? Those are the assholes who created this problem to begin with. Now they want to grab what they can and run like thieves in the night. Fuck them and the horse they rode in on.

While I understand your opinion on this, the decision doesn't lie with you, me, or the general public. This decision is made by the Judge with the input of the creditors. If the creditors feel that it's worthwhile, they will recommend to the judge to ok it and all will go fine. If they don't, then the judge will have to decide.

The judge already rejected converting it to a Chapter 7, meaning no overseeing trustee, and agreed with the argument that a trustee will take too long to come up to speed on how the business works and thus devalue the assets of the company.

Who anyone feel created this situation doesn't really matter at this point, what matters is getting maximum value for the assets. Potential buyers interested in the assets have inquired about rehiring the existing workforce. The faster and more efficient the sale can take place will benefit everyone. Sometimes when you're getting screwed there's nothing you can do about it but use a little lube to make it less painful. Think of these bonuses as the lube in this painful screw job.

Beamer is right on with his assessment of why these people are being grossly paid to stick it out. The expectation is that they will add more then 1.8 million in value to the sale of the assets due to their expertise and familiarity with the company.

I wish everyone who funded this luck, but I'm waiting for the final version before buying it. It all depends on the pay-to-win aspect of the game for me, I want to buy a meaningful and deep single player experience only.

This is exactly how I feel about this. The funding model makes me worried for how the multiplayer will work since people are already buying in-game items.

I was very tempted to fund this (would have been my first "kickstarter" funding) mainly due to who he is and the sheer amount of work that went into this BEFORE and during the campaign. I will 100% buy this at full price for the single player/private server portion after it gets a few reviews from reviewers who play it with a stick instead of a point and click. I doubt I'll ever get into the "MMO" servers though, mainly due to the give-aways from the funding drive.

News Comments > Star Citizen Funding Homestretch; Video
45. Re: Star Citizen Funding Homestretch; Video Nov 19, 2012, 10:45 Will W
 
I was wrong....I read the stretch goal wrong. The stretch goal added 5 more missions, the way it was placed made me think that it was a stretch goal:

  • Squadron 42
  • 35 missions in Squadron 42

    Is on the first stretch goal, so I took that to mean it was required for the Squadron 42 piece, when in reality the funding does talk about Squadron 42 with initial funding (with 30 missions).

    I'm used to admitting when I'm wrong, it happens a lot. lol

    I just feel like this will be a "pay to win" game, despite what he may have said. They're already selling permanently insured ships, credits, and now they're coming out with more and more "bonus" packs that give people more items.

    I can't compete with someone who can blow $1000 on a kickstarter to get a special ship that can't be "lost" and gets tons of money. If the world is persistent, they have a huge starting advantage, and with the push for "player driven economies" games have these days, anyone with some economic skill will be able to catapult themselves to an unreachable height. Put the add-on packages on there and they can perform any role without fear of losing their ships.

    At least that's how I'm reading this game, which looks Pay To Win to me.

    I am interested in the single player game though....so I'll most likely buy when it comes out and skip the Multiplayer. It's too bad, I love space shooters, and even cleaned the dust off my X52 pro the other day, but I can't see this being designed AROUND single player since adding a single player campaign was a stretch goal, not part of the original project.

    Obviously an image of the physical CD is no proof ;p But they do wittingly say "users who can show this happened to their copies of the game"

    A simple photo does not show....

    I agree with you. But the source article doesn't say that, it just says

    If the universe thinks that you should be playing Mass Effect right now, who are we to argue? In fact, we want to help! The first fifty fans affected by this phenomenon to send us a picture holding their special disc 2 will receive a code for a FREE PC copy of Mass Effect Trilogy.

    Remember, in order to qualify, YOU must be in the picture, and disc 2 of your Call of Duty: Black Ops II must be visible. Got it?
