135 or so kids here; down from last year which approached 200. We're in a growing neighborhood too. Worst thing is when asshats in $35,000 SUVs park in front of your damn house, unload a buttload of poorly costumed kids and sit there drinking their coffee while the kids canvass the street. "let's go trick or treat where the working folk live, that'd be fun".

Best costumes - the Canadian Tire Guy & his wife (you canucks know who I'm talking about, it was classic), a giant homemade Stewie (family guy), a few well done home made lizards (on tiny tykes), a Ron Mexico (albiet with Dunn's number), and a kid looking for his cat (with a flattened stuffed cat on his padded behind).

Worst costumes - Anything with a "Scream-esque" mask. Ye gods, must've been 15 or 20! Dress in black and throw on a $4 mask, that's a good way to pass the time when you're too old to trick or treat. Some other lame costumes - 13-15 year olds in flannel pajamas dressed as "slumber party" kids. Except it was cold, so they had sweatshirts on too, so it just looked like they were wearing pajama pants around (which some kids do now, apparently). Lame.

Only one "repeater" this year, and I think he just kept standing on the step not believing I wasn't going to give him anything the second time around. Last year, to my wife's chagrin, I had the following exchange with some early teens "what're you dress up as?" "uhhhhh, a schoolkid" "Yeah, so no candy for that" ":|" (Fellow's friends - "BURN!"). No egging though, which is always a plus.

Indeed, as you well know from reading the article itself, cutedge, it acknowledges uber-informed and helpful people like yourself with the note (emphasis mine):
The watchdog program, called The Warden by Blizzard, has been known about among players for some time.

we gain an hour and summer is OVER
...or you get back the hour stolen from you in the spring time.

If you were born during DST, does that mean you'll always have one hour on the rest of us, unless you die when DST is off?

Wheee. Started now, since neighbors having a noisy party (nothing like some bass throbbing into your house to keep you awake)... Not having my OS asking about it anymore is kinda weird; it's pretty much the only 'smart' device around the house. ummm, besides the missus.

didn't Blue used to put press releases of such length on their own distinct pages instead of fully enmeshing them with the rest of the stories?

Both for eschewing EA and for losing all that weight (rumoured 70lbs) - did you see the pics in Wired? He's practically unrecognizable in comparison to when he was working on LotR.

Or some way of playing via e-mail? (make a turn, save game, e-mail save game link to friend...)
I asked the same question a few weeks back, got the reply that PBEM is reportedly supported out of the box. yay!

Yet another kirk. Though I do share Blue's birthday, so maybe that's the connection.

What about in StarCraft or Total Annihilation?
or the C&C/Dune games? They were futuristic without being horrendously silly (unintentionally, I mean).

Combining Halo into a shared mythology with AoE could move things from Earth into a Starcraftian saga (since despite the apparent want, there's been no sequel to that game). Could be cool. Maybe be less rushing/more strategy if you have less masterchiefs when you play as the hu-mans...

All speculation, of course, something we share with the wonks in the thread referenced by the story. gamers delight in speculation.

I'm going to skip IV and V, then start picking up the even numbered ones, until around XV, when I'll get every third one.
Hey Semantics, does this mean when you switch from even numbered ones your first ever "every 3rd one" will be XV, meaning you skipped XIV, or you'll skip from XIV to XVII?

For multiplayer, their website says "LAN, Internet, PBEM, and Persistent Turn Based Server." I assume PBEM stands for Play By E-Mail.
sweet. I never saw it mentioned in any previews, so that's excellent.

You scored as Jayne Cobb.

The Mercenary. You are in this for the money, plain as that. You like things simple that way, but mainly as anything else confuses you. You get the job done, and don't care what people think. Not as long as you get paid anyway.
hmmm... have to see the show I guess to know if they're an arse or an arsekicker. GB'll be 0-4 soon, woooo

In my neck of the woods I can get HDTV PVR on my digital cable. I could also get tv over my phone lines (albiet only for two tvs, which is a key reason why I went the cable route) - and bundle it if I want with DSL and regular phone. And then there's the satellite option.

Lots of stuff around; and it seems there has been a lot of infrastructure upgrades in my area. but until the thin client reaches the level of the StarTrek "PAD" and "computer, get me xyz", I can't see it being widely adopted (still will be adopted to some degree, I suspect.)

"We thought we could go out to (game-review and news sites like) Blues News or Shack News, and say, 'Hey, we've got this new game out, give us a news item," Potter said. "But they wouldn't even touch it because it was" adult-oriented.
hmmm. If it's a quality non-adult game, it may get mentioned (and even some non-quality games get mentioned here too). I wonder if there was a popular adults only game if it would make El Presidente's cut...

LT is a monster. I was watching that game (while at a local hockey game) and he was shakin' and bakin' all over the place. Tiki was looking good from what I saw as well...

Not looking forward to tonight's MNF game... 0-4 is on the way
