The only online team game I've ever enjoyed was QuakeWorld Team Fortress. It was easy to see what others were doing, communication was frequent and simple (ex: incoming fishes!), and the gameplay was just damn fun.

One to One RTS / FPS or DM/FFA are the only competition modes that have ever made sense to me. Otherwise, it's impossible to feel total ownership in many online 'team games' where communication is limited, observation is restricted, strategic control is almost non-existent, and the fate of winning is often the result of a combination of luck and a few well-performing team members. Shared team success is typically an illusion, rarely based on facts, and usually hinders on the expert skill of one or two smart players avoiding the stupid ones.

Apparently, Santa Ana wind will not allow El Niņo to encroach on its territory. It will be 84 degrees today - picture taken yesterday. 90 degrees this weekend.

Super Bowl was playing on our TV because my wife was watching it. I personally find watching other people compete to be a boring waste of time. I cannot influence the outcome.

At the rtsk of outing myself as a complete nerd, isn't that signature quote actually Deanna Troi convincing Mark Twain - as they both strolled along a corridor to a turbolift - that the future isn't so grim? The episode where they go back in time to stop the life-source-stealing aliens? Am I wrong?

Because the fools didn't buy a snow blower!

Even worse ... He llved where it snows! With that in mind, it's dry and in the low to mid 70s here, I think I wasted money getting prepared for the supposed El Niņo.

While strolling along an empty sidewalk, Cutter encounters Henry. "Henry! How's it going man? Long time!" Henry looking perplexed and slightly annoyed, stands back a bit, raises an eyebrow, and bluntly responds, "Who the hell are you?"

A moment of shock! Cutter's face becomes pale and his skin turns clammy and weak. His voice is shaken. He cannot speak. Tears of embarrassment form in his eyes. He experiences a flash of memory. Vividly recalling and re-experiencing (as frequent daydreams) that single, life-changing, conversation in the pub - even though it happened so many years ago. The long time fantasy friendship that followed. The reoccurring rock star dreams and imaginary adventures of bonding. All of it, suddenly shattered, crumbled, and broken. Scattering like ashes into an abyss. Cutter puts his hands in his coat pockets and crouches his head down - wishing this tragic moment never happened. As he continues to stare into the lifeless, cold, and lonely concrete below, he quickly scurries away in humiliation.

Practicing my very amateur writing. Nothing personal against Cutter.

Thanks to El Niņo we had a super cold blast here yesterday. Was only in the mid 50s to 60s.

Not all hope is lost. It's climbjng back up toward the 70s over the next few days. Thumbsup

Was made to take my nephew to see it in the early morning. Fortunately, there were about 10 others in the audience and the theatre has cushioned reclining seats. Almost fell asleep a few times.

All my rainy weather clothes have either Gore-Tex or Ceplex Active. Breatheable clothing is essential. Thumbsup

Guinea Pig Takes Cat's Bed - Cat Wigs Out. Guinea Pig or Honey Badger?

That's a combination of play and "this thing smells nasty, I love it!". Cats are all about smells...


Cat was nervous. Guinea pog was terrified, Person was taunting and laughing. Some people shouldn't own pets. The video should be classified as animal abuse.

Coming off of DOS to Windows was pretty mind blowing at the time. It was like coming off Lynx and BBS' to Netscape, or when we all got our first 3D cards for the first 3D games. Those were all very Neo 'Whoa! I know Kung Fu.' moments.

Yah, but coming from AmigaOS, Windows was quite unimpressive.

Steam cleaners work pretty nicely....

Only if you thoroughly get rid of the debris, dirt, or dust first. Otherwise, you'll be dealing with soppy mud and grime. Better to simply clean-up before and immediately after cooking, eating, etc.

Stay away from that crap. There's nothing in the house that can be cleaned as well, if not better, with DIY home cleaners based on a few simple ingredients like vinegar, baking soda, bleach, and borax. And they're all far cheaper and better for the environment. Vinegar alone is a wonder liquid that does almost everything.

Does your place have that aged-vinegar "old person" smell?

Stop the pathetic discussion of this game.

First with the pathetic financial advice nobody cared about and now forum moderating. Don't like the conversation, here's a hint, don't read it.

Do you really need an explanation? Are you so detached from reality?
