Out of the Blue

Well the new iPhone announcement came pretty well-timed for MrsBlue and me, as our several-year old phones are in actual need of replacement with audio issues and diminishing battery life. It says something about how needlessly complex mobile providers make things (I don't think this is unique to Verizon) that I was unable to complete my order online, but was pleasantly surprised to end up talking about this with someone in Tennessee, rather than halfway around the world, and she made it a very pleasant process along the way, going so far as to credit me for a month to make up for my cell modem still being under contract.

I'm close to pulling the trigger. Considering you can get the game for 36 or 37, your basically getting the game and all dlc for the regular price. I guess I'm worried what the dlc might contain and how soon it shows up. And if the lame stop arena is one of them.

Mine finally showed up over night...preload was quick. You hear all kinds of horror stories on their boards, but this was my 6th purchase where they delivered with no problems. So I'm not sure if I'm lucky or what...I will say the board got considerably quieter there overnight, so I can only assume the rest of the keys went out.

Still debating dropping $22.50 on the season pass. I guess $5.60 a pack is a little hard to argue with.

I pre-ordered about a month ago though. So if you still haven't go a key on monday you should contact GMG support. Sometimes it happens, though it never has for me.

I bought from GMG and got key about a day ago.. put in steam, and pre-load is finished.

They seem to have an issue where, once keys are available, a new purchase gets a key immediately, while someone like me that ordered on Aug 5th still doesn't have theirs (true story - and there's a number of folks on their board just like me. This also happened with Sleeping Dogs keys.).

It's not a huge deal, as long as they deliver. Earlier this week they were saying on their twitter that they weren't going to be distributing keys until this next Tues (aka launch day) so any advance is nice and (at this point) unexpected...

But I would like my damn key now, please! Hopefully I'll have it when I get up tomorrow and can kick off the preload then...

A lot of people, myself included, have been having trouble accessing VideoSift today. This is due to a recent change in DNS that has resulted in lots of people's web browsers not knowing how to open the videosift.com domain. DNS changes like this take a little while to propagate, so everything should return to normal for the affected users within several hours maximum (hopefully).

If you know folks who cannot access the site, please let them know it's just temporary and for an immediate fix, tell them to Google "how to edit my hosts file" and add the following two lines to the "hosts" file on their computer:

216.18.199.34 videosift.com
108.161.188.128 cdn.videosift.com

Meh. Have both. IPhone crashes far less than my xoom. The only thing I really like better about my Xoom is the multimedia dock, which has incredible sound for such a small speaker. Makes it into a great bedside Internet radio/clock. Flash argument is barely rellevant, as Flash performance is one step above not having it at all. I so wanted it to really work well in that regard.

IMO. Never really bought into this Apple hate.

I broke down and bought it this morning, and played it while waiting for Black Mesa to download. If you buy it directly from the developer, you get a Steam key and a DRM free copy via. The Humble Store.

Today is also Black Mesa release day. Finally. Although, the links are all jammed and it hasn't appeared on Steam yet.

Torrent. It is super fast. Everything else is dogged.
