Ha, your timing is awesome, Blue. We've had a fox in our neighborhood (urban, but lots of trees) for at least a decade, but I'd not seen him in the last few years, leading me to believe he'd (sadly!) moved on or been killed. Maybe 5 years ago, I caught him trotting through the hood while driving home about 9:30 at night, and I stopped, rolled down the window, and chatted with him while he sat and watched me. About the size of a medium sized dog. Not huge, almost cuddly sized, but not something you're want to back into a corner.

ANYWAY. So about a week ago now, I hear some screaming about 2:30 in the morning...after figuring out it wasn't a person in distress, I assumed it was a fox, and your video confirms it. The :40 or so call is pretty much exactly what I heard, every 3-5 seconds, for about a half minute or so.

But it DOES get your attention at 2:30 in the morning, and you wonder WTF is going on down the street!

Blues Brothers, great movie.

I was under the impression they (xbone) were readily available, although I admit I've not surveyed the local targets and the like. But every time I've checked ebgames or amazon, they're always in stock.

Looking online right now, I see them available at EB, amazon, target, bestbuy, and new egg.

Not sure what to make of Harmonix. One says yes, one says no.


I got tired of Rock Band and other games like it. Guitars, drums, and mic collecting dust for some time now....I don't have (nor want) the time to put into it to get to the higher levels....it was more of a "have friends over and mess around" sort of thing.

Rocksmith is a pretty cool replacement, and it gets you using a real guitar. The cable is finicky sometimes, but it's pretty neat.

Friend of mine used RS to basically learn to play both guitar and bass, and now takes lessons each week. It sounds like it's an amazing learning tool, even if you sometimes pick up bad habits instructors tell you to break.

The XB1, on the other hand... not so much, and it's not because they're selling out so fast. There's just no supply.


Whaaaaa?

I liked the original, but like others found OMD2 to be a frustrating affair.

Same here. I didn't last long in it.

No kidding. The guy made 150+ million dollars over his career.


As for the Xbone, it's hilarious that retailers are saying to Microsoft "Your price point is retarded. If you can't figure this out yourself, we'll figure it out for you."

Since I've not look lately:

Gamestop: #1, vs #53 (holy shit!)

Amazon: #2 vs #24

Yeah, honestly when Elite:Dangerous and Star Citizen were both announced I was full convinced that Elite:Dangerous would be vaporware and Star Citizen would be moving forward at a fast pace.

Now it seems like the exact opposite is true. I'm super-excited about Elite:Dangerous, and a big 'meh' for Star Citizen.


I felt and feel that exact same way.

3rd-ed.

Goddamn nin you lucky bastard. My crusader has a 2h sword with slightly higher damage...

Yeah, on the one hand it's awesome (esp it's count to 10, AOE fest proc), but on the other, I might never replace the damn thing (at least until the next expansion 2 years from now?). (I believe) It dropped as apart of the package Tyriel gives you for completing 5 bounties, so farm the fuck out of those.


Let me guess you use the laser-beam-of-death ray with the Wizard?

It's good for mobs, but not so great for bosses, obviously. You wade in, and since every kill has something like a 35% chance to explode on those around them, large masses of folks instantly vaporize (I think my record so far is 50+ kills "at once" - but blizz seems to play loose with that stat).


For the life of me I cant figure out why you would socket a ruby instead of an emerald in its socket, unless you are using a skill that doesnt crit...

I'm going to go with "extreme lack of end game experience" on my part. I pretty much go off the numbers on the char sheet, will a green chart there correctly (on the character sheet), or will it show a lower DPS, but in reality be higher due to the crits? (I mean it sounds like green would be higher, but I'd just like to compare the two, numbers wise, to verify it.)


Hardcore Torment I, thinking of switching to II i can solo Torment I quite easily. (Just dont ask me to go against Maltheus yet...)

You're way braver than I am, but my internet still drops from time to time, so hardcore would be a disaster. I stepped into T1 briefly the other day, but I really need to boost my health, as it's not keeping up with incoming damage.

I've seen a lot of assumptions that it was coming out soon, but I don't think I've ever seen anything officially announced.

Not announced. Believe me, I'd be screaming it all over the place, if it were.

When are all these fools going to realize they are being taken for a ride by Frontier. Like P.T. Barnum said, "There is a fool born every second". Best quote ever!

First, you didn't even get the quote right. Second, he didn't say it.

Your denseness continues to amaze me. I'm not sure how you manage to breathe, frankly.

My agenda is XP always was insecure and it's not become less secure, it's just not becoming more secure anymore. In a world where an O/S can seemingly never be secure. They are selling fear... if you don't upgrade bad things will happen.

But if a vulnerability is discovered/written, and MS doesn't patch XP any more, doesn't that make it less secure than it was before?

Yeah, I'm still amazed at the number of people saying "omg, this gen sucks." I remember the N64 launch and how for the first year, any game coming out (AT ALL) was a big deal...
