Out of the Blue

Happy Thanksgiving to all those who are celebrating. Here's hoping everyone's travel arrangements worked out okay. Things are humming along here in the BlueTower, MrsBlue has been busy all week, and the bird is in the oven, and coming along nicely, thanks in no small part to my expert basting skills. My agenda for the day includes Scotch, football, turkey, more Scotch, and more football. In other words, I have a lot for which to be thankful. And that includes you, if you're reading these words... thanks!

Scotch... went through a bottle of Glenmorangie 18yo and a friends left over Johnny Walker Blue. Loved the Glen, was not at all impressed with the Blue. I swear it's one of my least favorite scotches I've tried. Can't figure out the price on that one. I wouldn't pay $15 let alone $200 for the bottle.

my 5870 developed a loud fan rattle. After some research it sounds like it's a very common problem with 5870s and 5970s.

Pretty sure mine was a 5870, and that's why I dumped mine. It's a shame, as it was a great card, otherwise.

Grabbed a 560GTX for cheap and never looked back.

Took my enormous gaming PC over to the parent's house to show them Skyrim and BF3 but when I brought it back to my place and hooked it up my 5870 developed a loud fan rattle. After some research it sounds like it's a very common problem with 5870s and 5970s.

It currently doesn't seem like it's actually affecting the card (or fan speed) but I know that's probably down the line. I'm just inside a 2 year warranty by a few weeks but of course NewEgg is getting pounded right now and won't let me begin an RMA.

As far as sales, so far amazon is far outpacing steam for me - they better get their ass in gear if they wanna keep up!



? haven't seen crap on Amazon I wanted. Was thinking Dark Souls, but it is 35.00....I have enough to play at that price point.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Party  
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

In other news

Best line:
Kelly said Brandon has fulfilled his duty as a boyfriend and won’t need to see any more “Twilight” movies with her.

Smart plan! Provided I didn't break any teeth or bite the shit out of my tongue, I think I'd take a seizure over seeing the Twilight movies, too.

If you're basting, you're doing it wrong.

More time w/ oven door open = more time for turkey to cook = drier bird.

Thanks Blue! Everyone be safe, lots of movement on the roads today. Buckle up, slow down, eat a lot, drink and be merry, and watch some football in between naps.

Now go buy some Steam games!
