12. Let me ask this... Sep 10, 2017, 16:21 The Half Elf
 
I didn't vote Trump, and didn't want to vote Hillary but I did. She lost, and being open minded I figured "ok let's give him a shot and see what happens, maybe he'll bring something new and different to the table". How I wish I was wrong on the 'new and different' part.

So please I'd like to know (please hold your political bashing for another thread) if ya did vote for him, how you think things are going for the country as a whole, and not just your political views/side.

They have a demo, and the video was impressive (not to mention the Danny Elfman style music). I've never done a backer/crowdfunding project before but this looks like the nearest thing to FTL 2 that I'm gonna get.

Ok I'm in!

@Rigs
Not to pile on more work, but do you have enough roof and foundation anchors on the house? Do you have a backup generator? I assume you have food and water for a couple of weeks with no power. Keep some bleach handy in case you need to purify your own.

And lastly be glad you don't live in South Florida.

I was telling everyone here that all the people that went west from Miami would be better to go back east TO Miami! Like everyone on the East Coast went west, thinking it would be another Matthew. Miami is a practical ghost town. NOW, everyone is regretting it. That's part of the reason I didn't go anywhere. I knew the Euro model was saying the total opposite of what the NHC was saying a few days ago. They didn't do a good job of communicating that to the public this time. They should have made it clear that the Euro was saying something almost totally different and that it had been a near-perfect forecast model for the previous storms. Instead, they kept moving the track around and causing general confusion. You'd think, with a brand new GOES 16 satellite in orbit, all this fancy computing hardware and lots of smarty brains in their employ, they'd get this right once in a while. They did ok with Harvey, they screwed the pooch, IMO, with Irma.

I live in a double-wide 'mobile home'. (I'll never know why they call it a 'mobile home' when it doesn't move...like ever, except when you don't want it too, like during a hurricane or tornado) It's not my first choice, but we had to move from our more secure and sturdy house in Beverly Hills (Citrus County) last year after five years in three weeks. So that didn't give us a lot of time to be picky. But we won't be staying here in this home if it gets really bad. There's a really sturdy brick house within walking distance the next yard over, so if something does happen, we're ready to pick up and go over there immediately. Our home here is anchored and the roof was just inspected and worked on yesterday, so it's as good as it's going to get. Our plans are made, our preps are done and we're just hoping for the best and sitting patiently.

=-Rigs-=

Good Luck man, please keep us updated as best you can.
I remember when we moved down to Florida and the EX mentioned getting a mobile home. That was a 2 second conversation of "NO".
I never evacuated the 10+ years I lived in Orlando, but I would have left for this one.

Be safe!

Trying to shed that "worst company in the world" label? Nice try, but stop using your help desk as a sales vector, and we'll start to reconsider.

Did you see the video of the guy finally getting in touch with his dad?
They are doing something for free and ahead of a major storm, just accept it for what it is.

Fuck, my next door neighbor died last night, heart attack. He was only 58. He was a good man. And I have to get a tooth yanked today. Oh yeah, this is going to be just a great weekend, sigh.

Make sure they give you enough painkillers for 6 months

Ok so it was correct 81% and humans were correct 61%.

I guess my question is.... why the fuck does it even matter? And maybe it's just me, but unless we are doing some sort of WW2 high tech jewish internment system of separating the gays from the straights why would this tech even exist?

I hope for Floridians, Irma avoids land fall. However, I have to admit a morbid curiosity as to what would happen if Irma's eye went right through downtown Miami...

Well Andrew('92) only missed it by 35 miles, so that should give you a pretty good guess. Only thing I can say is it'll be interesting to see if my property there survives, if not oh well it's insured and I'm not there anyway. Neighbor's kids boarded it all up for me, and I paid them $400 to do it and I can trust them.

The only upside is that this hurricane is hitting so early in the season. Otherwise you'd also have to be dealing with the large numbers of snowbirds. Zephyrhills for instance would be really bad if this was say 3-4 weeks later, their pop increases by something like 250k people in the winter.

Mashiki for 400 bucks I'll drive down to Florida and board it up for ya!

Um.. there is a second story that Blue didn't mention.

The regular game (LA Noire) is coming out for all the consoles with DLC as a HD version.


WTF Rockstar, still no Red Dead Redemption?!?

The face tech was top notch, especially considering it came out on the 360/PS3.
The game wasn't bad, but it was done by Team Bondi, and while the cases and writing were good, overall the game was just empty beyond that.
