A late UPS trailer arrival has delayed delivery. We're adjusting plans to deliver your package as quickly as possible. / Delivery will be rescheduled.

Motherfucker!

I hope that you have access to that firewall so you can unblock it.

I don't, I'm waiting for the nasty phone call for security, actually.

I think I googled "win 8 ISO download" one too many times and triggered someones attention (despite not actually downloading anything, and only going to toms and MS' site).

I loaded up a copy of Windows 8 that I got via torrent and updated it to 8.1. Then I applied the new key and it activated.

Why not just go here? Would that not work?

edit: Or the upgrade is here.

And here's how you create media.


The trouble is that those are for upgrades from a previous versions of Windows like Windows 7. Both links appear to be the same BTW. The method I used was for a standalone version. I installed it off of a USB flash drive. I prefer the torrent download because it only takes a few minutes.

I've been working in IT for nearly 20 years. Others will likely benefit from that though.

I had the standalone link and apparently lost it (didn't paste it correctly), and now going back through my cache, I've managed to get tomshardware blocked on the firewall at work. Weeeeee...

I've worked in IT since 95 as well, which was why it seems odd you'd go with a torrent over a legitimate download.

Oh, well, whatevers.

It was Deadwood that I missed even before I watched the final episode. :/ I started watching Boardwalk after I finished Deadwood but it didn't make me want to keep watching. Maybe because I was depressed about Deadwood not getting a proper ending. After reading all your comments, I think I'll give Boardwalk another go.

Empire kind of reminded me of a '20s Sopranos, but if memory serves (and it frequently doesn't) I want to say the first few episodes started off a little slow.

While I hate to see it go, I'm glad they're ending it while it's still good, instead of dragging it out for years and making crap seasons at the end.


I never watched Sopranos but am probably going to get it soon.

If you have amazon prime, I think it's on there for "free" (IE you paid $100 for prime).

With the exception of the 4th season, I loved Sopranos. The 4th is generally a snoozer, but two big things do happen in that season, so you can't exactly skip it...

Whether or not you like the ending is kind of up to you.

Yeah, we've seen lots of examples of different show quality arcs:

1. The show that starts great and stays great until the end (or are still running). Examples: The Wire, the original Arrested Development, BSG, South Park, Archer.

The last season of BSG (with the reappearance of Starbuck) I really didn't like. Plus, with the writers strike, you had the first part of the season they assumed they weren't going to be back from (feeling like the ending of the series), but then they came back and did the second half of the season, which felt totally tacked on.

BTW, speaking of BSG, I read earlier that it's streaming rights end on Netflix tomorrow.

Wow, free upgrade to Windows 9? What happened to Microsoft? It's almost as if they've started caring just a little bit about their customers...

It just means they're pushing it out the door sooner, rather than later, and know there'd be a backlash otherwise...

I'd like to thank amazon for shipping Mordor early...


Except they shipped it from arizona instead of kansas, ensuring there's no way in hell I'll get it early.

People in China Actually Lined Up for the Xbox One.

Is the camera mandated there?

The people are speaking and it's pretty clear what they are wanting.

Incomplete buggy messes? : )

The promise of a perfect game, over the inevitable reality of an imperfect one.


Man, that sums up our hobby in one sentence!

What the fuck that's such a bizarre bug.

I imagine they were using computer name as a seed for some PRNG routine and a short name would somehow generate an invalid seed.

That's infinitely better than any theory I could come up with.

After all these years, EA can still surprise. Kudos.

Well, these are the same guys who, on the last need for speed, based the entire code on running 30 FPS. And once you removed that cap, the entire game ran at warp speed...

I thought that shit died with the DOS days...

There was a FIFA 15 bug mentioned a couple of days ago where players would run to the middle of the pitch. It turns out, this happens if your computer's name is short.

How in the hell did EA manage that?! The length of your computer's name affecting the AI. I'm actually impressed that they're so, so bad. This is like getting a flat tire because your TV is in stand-by mode ... just WTF?!

Wow, really?
