My father had a colonoscopy earlier this year, they name dropped Gatorade more than a few times in the prep instructions to avoid dehydration. Really anything heavy with electrolytes, I just found it strange they kept mentioning Gatorade.



Gatorade.

(and good luck)

Thanks. This is where my over-sharing pays off, as that's a good tip... a buddy actually mentioned it too, so I just picked some up (the store was all out of Brawndo). The straw tip from earlier in the thread is a good one too, as is the advice to chill it, but I had that already, as the nurse suggested I pour it over ice to make it cooler.

As for timing, it's actually late morning. The good news is this will allow me to make an update here if I'm capable. The bad news is it increases the possibility the day will be a complete wipe-out for me if I react to everything badly. I'm hoping for the best, but this is all uncharted territory, so we'll have to see.

I hate to complain because I do love this site but you really need to curate your "Play" section games a little better. You usually post repeats about twice a week, sometimes three times but the ones for today are both repeats. I understand it isn't most peoples reason for stopping here but I enjoy reading the headlines and then playing a few games when I have a couple of minutes free at home.

You make a fair point. I will try to do better.

I just hope blue stops with the click bait sensationalist re-posting of this crap and moves on. Chances are low as i'm sure this gets him good ad revenue.

If you deem "Star Citizen Star Cast Revealed" as clickbait then I can only assume you feel the only way to cover this game fairly is by ignoring it entirely.

the ONLY thing wrong with utley's slide was that it was late. everything else about it was typical takeout slide.

Isn't that the only thing that has to be wrong with it? (Not that it was.)

It's like saying the ONLY thing wrong with a beanball was its location, everything else about it was a typical pitch.

NotOneOfUs wrote on Oct 7, 2015, 01:27:
So yeah, no online multiplayer yet. Actually the game feels like Rock Band 4: Early Access Edition.

That made sound harsh, but there's a good chunk of missing things. I'm content with what I got, but then I'm a huge Rock Band whore. Apparently a good amount will be coming in patches over the next few months, but damn.

Yeah, it just all has such a shoestring feel to it that I decided I want to wait for this to become the game I want before buying it, rather than taking it on faith.

That said, I may yet cave... I can feel the possibility within myself even as I write these words.

Blue as a member of media, if you don't mind sharing, what do you think about Escapist's decision as it pertains to journalism and freedom of the press?

I think it's important for journalists to be as accurate as possible and to stand tall against such legal threats when they have followed proper protocols. Presuming they have satisfied the first part, the second part naturally follows.

I also think CIG has gone full-on Streisand effect here with the legal threats, but I guess a developer's perspective on that would be more relevant.

Also, I've been assured that Matt Damon's character does not encounter a cobra-like Martian alien, try to befriend it, and have it kill him by slithering down his throat.

I protest, please Blue link to his YouTube video!

I second the motion...

I'll post the email reply I sent Rhialto about this:

Relax, nobody is stealing anything, Videosift embedded his video. There is nothing about this that cheats him out of views or revenue.

VideoSift is doing him a favor by spreading his reach, and that is where I spotted the video, so they deserve their link too.

You can read about this here:

https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/132596?hl=en

"Only YouTube and the video owner will earn revenue from ads on embedded videos; the site owner where the video is embedded will not earn a share. You can track earnings for embedded videos in AdSense, as you would for videos earning revenue on YouTube.com."

Sad to see a post this disingenuous here... of course it would be posted in the most sensational, anti-CIG, anti-SC way possible. *sigh*

Disingenuous?

You make me want to actually write up a sample of this in a "sensational, anti-CIG, anti-SC way" just so you can see how neutral it actually is.

You're enjoying this, aren't you, Blue?

I guess I understand how you could think that being appealing for clickbait and such, but it's really the opposite. I loved the first two Wing Commander games so much that I would love a modernized version of them. Also, I think if this project collapses on itself as some think, it will be a blow to PC gaming in general, space sims in particular, and could poison the waters for future large-scale projects on Kickstarter.

Derek Smart whining about a game taking too long and underdelivering is classic projection when you look at the shit he peddles. Here's a reminder in case anyone is unaware of how shit Derek Smart's games are. He is the least credible person in the industry to criticise Star Citizen and it's disappointing that Blue is giving him attention.

It's no surprise to see it was Kxmode who linked to the article, given his zealotic hatred of the game. Apparently he has nothing better to do with his life than bash the game - I almost pity him that this is the only thing that brings him enjoyment. At least with Derek Smart it's an egotistical attempt to get more attention and sales for his game - he's an asshat but he doesn't pretend to be anything but.

I've watched the sunfish video at least 5 times now, and it never gets old. Reminds me of the old Adam Sandler albums and the accents he'd do...

Coworker and I both had tears running down the face yesterday, we were laughing so hard...

If I watch it again I want to catalog everything he identified it as along the way (sea turtle, baby whale, tuna, flounder, etc.). I also love how he alternates between saying they should try to help it and they should try to kill it and get rich.

Also, is the name of their boat actually the "Sea Bro?" It just gets better and better.

Is it news if it happened 11 years ago?

Hmm, now I'm all curious.

It was a story about a puppy managing to shoot the guy who was trying to shoot some puppies. The Register linked it, and I got it from them not noticing it was old. They've pulled their story now too.

My eventual recollection that this may have been posted here at the time turns out to have
been accurate. The CNN story I linked at the time is gone, but The Register's link was to this AP story which is still online.

Um, Blue.

I'm sometimes getting pretty weird ads from your site. A hidden ad that blasts speech at high volume and another add that tries to send me to some other site with a popup. I feel like I'm on a pirate website.

I apologize. Such problems stem from a service being used here that allows ads to be sold at auction. The good news is that this has increased the rate they draw, but the bad news is it is being glitchy.

As you can probably see, there's nothing shady about the products and services being sold, but there is something odd going on where ads refresh themselves and sometimes play sound. I am assured that these problems have been mostly worked out, and are in the midst of being eradicated for good.

I am sorry for any problems you are still encountering as these issues are being dealt with. I hope you can be patient if it happens again, and if I can further impose, I'm told it can help accelerate clearing things up if we can offer specifics on what ads are misbehaving, either by identifying the product, or the URL the ad points to.
