The source engine has continuously been updated. While the bulk of it is 4 years old and the bulk of the engine is, it has been updated with good modern stuff, so I would not say it is 4 years old.
Plus, the engine was well built, so now with more hardware they can put 5X more polygons the Half Life 2 did and make it look much better, with the same engine.

The video did make it look really good. Plus, it gives all of us a lot more game play for free!

I have also been able to use HL2 to get non pc-gamers in PC gaming. HL1 was never a draw for them, because it was so old. This will help educate those not in the know.

I understand why they are doing it.

But the people that do not need super high-quality 3D accelerators will also NOT need an 8 core CPU system!!!

Give those casual people a decent dual core CPU saving them 100's of dollars, and put in a $50 add-on video card. More CPU power then they will ever use, and a GPU to play all the casual games they want and do all the video acclerating they will use.

Hopefully Wal-Mart will put some damn rules in place to keep this from ever happening again ....

What rules could Wal-Mart put in place that the government has not already put in place? Like ya know, not killing or hurting your fellow man.

People that get into crowds and fall into the mob mentality are responsible. I.E. stupid people.

I agree, normally PHJF. Not a fan of turkey. But this year we did a Cajun Turkey from Popeyes. It was really quite good.

Plus, I always enjoy a meal that has corn and mashed potatoes. Mix them together and deliciousness ensues.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

You never answered the question though. Does the system have a timer, or are you just looking for excuses to stay up late?!

I bought a BluRay player for 169 yesterday.
It is worth it.
Within the next 6 months and the players are costing $100 dollars, the sales will increase greatly. As the sales start to increase, the cost of the BluRay movies will be able to decrease due to large volume being sold.

It is a decent format.

And why in the fuck is there a Romulan in the movie?
In Star Trek lore, in ToS, nobody has seen Romulans for ~100 years.

And they better not know if it is a Romulan! In one of the best ToS episodes, what Romulans look like was learned for the first time ever!

I think the trailer looked stupid as hell. Just horrible.
I suspect they will rape Kirk and Spook and the rest of the crew just as much as Indiana Jones was raped in the latest movie.

and the puzzles were not so much thought provoking as they were do-this-crazy-hard-portal-jump.

Yes. I agree.
Or the last few were more just, explore the hell out of level until you find the damn cube or some small hole to shoot your portal gun through.

But it was very well done for such a "large" mod to come out in such a short time.

Senior Adult Choir Hip Hop (Short Version).

I like that idea.
But they really should, I dunno, learn how to sing and preform as a choir first!

So I finally played the Left 4 Dead demo last night.
Nothing amazing about it; but it really was quite fun though!

Looking forward to it.

One of these new findings however, orbits the bright star Fomalhaut, which is due south from northern latitudes this time of year.
Formalhaut!
Yeay!
One of the more important systems in the Elite series!!!
That was my first thought, anyway.

It also may well be my intervention that caused the other dog to snap at me, but if the bite my jacket suffered had been flush on my arm, I might still be in the hospital.

Ohh yes, by all means. Do separate them, because accidents do happen. But doing the volunteer work at the animal shelter I had lots of experience with it, so I know how to do it while minimizing the risk to all parties, and to keep very calm when doing it. I think all the dog owners, and dogs would be much happier and healthier and better in this country if everybody who wanted to get a dog did a volunteer stint at the local animal shelter.

And, you are also right about the cost. If your dog does get cut, of course you want to get it cleaned and make sure there is no risk of infection, or the other dogs do not have any diseases, etc.

Before I moved ~3 years ago, a routine vet visit would cost hundreds of dollars. Now that I live more out in the “country”, the vet does not charge for looking at minor scratches like that. If it requires medicine or some more attention, minor fee. He gives much better service in my opinion then the more expensive vets “in the city”, and everything is so much cheaper it is crazy. So yes, my attitude has the ability now to be a little more lax.

Find a chaper/nicer vet! heh

It is rare dogs actually fight. One just tries to assert dominance over the other. Unless soft tissue is accidentally hurt, there is usually not even scratches. It takes experience being around dogs to know how to recognize when it is a real fight or just something else. Go volunteer at a shelter and learn from lots of dogs. I did this before I decided to get a dog.

My dog has been "attacked" multiple times while walking, and he has never started it. They look like viscous attacks, but the other dogs are just trying to assert dominance. It is the owners fault for not controlling them. My dog (dogs now) are not in any real danger, and enjoy the socialization. I do not see any reason to worry to much and punish them and not let them enjoy the walks and good exercise.
Let dogs be dogs. But control your dog. A scratch here and there is not a big deal....when you were a kid playing rough with your friends, did you not get scratches? It really is the same thing....most of the time.

The other major reasons dogs attack other dogs, is they feel their master is being threatened. If you teach your dogs to never get between the other dog and their owner, and you never get in between the two, your greatly reduce the change of an attack or an attempt to assert dominance. And yes, this is incredibly hard to do. My older dog Noodle is crazy smart and this was actually easy to teach him. The newer younger has the typical dog intelligence, so I just make her stay near me when other dogs are around.

Not being in the gaming industry at all, I do believe this makes me highly qualified to speak on this subject, and my opinion should have serious weight with industry vets.

Games are fun.
