Halo 1 and 2 were on PC.
Halo 1 was effectively completed prior to when Microsoft bought Bungie. They however do get credit for making 2 available on the PC.

Repeal And Delay goes down in flames. Mr. Tact, you still have health insurance.
For now... I don't trust the members of the GOP any further than I can throw them. Take my word for it, there will be more attempts.

The comments are heartbreakimg after everything we put into the property.
It's just the way it works. People only see/look for problems. You could have done another $50k of upgrades and people would still find things to complain about. Don't take it too seriously and definitely don't take it personally.

I guess we'll have to disagree. I believe the headline is misleading. Yes, they responsibly included the information of the selection bias. However, the headline ignores this important fact and implies a conclusion the study is correct to avoid. I don't disagree with any of the conclusions. As I said,

Brain damage due to concussion is a serious problem in American football. That said, headlines like this are, in part, the reason news media is under increasing attack. The study is statistically invalid because a majority of the brains were donated because the person had shown signs of dementia or other symptoms. Anyone wanting to discredit it, wouldn't have to work hard. This despite the fact it is indeed a serious problem which needs to be addressed.

My 10 year old watches this guy sometimes. ...

Anyway, that he appeals to 10 year olds should tell you all you need to know.
Yep, there are a ton of idiots on youtube like this. My 14 year old niece has pointed me to a couple of them over the last few years. As I've said before, if it wasn't for the fact that every generation since language was invented has said it -- I'd think society was doomed due to "the next generation"...

Our house went up for sale today. On top of that, we agreed on terms last night on the house we are buying. Phone is going nuts for showings of our house. Hope to be sold today.
Heck of a deal.

It's all a matter of what you are used to... as a kid I slept in the second story of a 80 year old house without AC through brutal summers in the US Midwest. I probably couldn't sleep in those conditions now but then, it was what it was. I didn't have a choice. So, a window fan to get some air movement and you just dealt with it.

All I can say is you have more money and guts than I do.

First, I couldn't afford a $500k home, even if it was brand new and needed absolutely no work done. Second, even if I could afford that much, I'm not sure I could trust myself or anyone I know to properly evaluate the value of a home needing so much work. Yeah, I could hire an inspector to give me his opinion, but if he's wrong -- I'd be the one holding the bag...

Bats, I have to agree with jdreyer... all those problems and their denials leaves a bad smell in my nose. If they are denying provable issues, what else are they lying/not telling you about? And asking to meet you at the house to prove the deck is fine when you have pictures indicating otherwise sound to me like he just wants to con/snow you. Talk you into buying. Tread with care, seems like you might be looking at a "money pit".

Yeah.. I can tell which videos I've watched, Youtube has the information and is displaying it in its' very subdued way. But they changed the "look", so I'm guessing they changed something the extension was using, which is now keeping the extension from knowing what has been watched hence preventing the big "Watched" label from being put on the videos.
Woo hoo! Fixed. Don't ask me how, no update that I can tell, haven't even closed my browsers. *shrug*

The unique currency system is a bit odd, and in my opinion overly complicated. But *shrug* whatever, it really isn't that different from collecting gold.

How easy is it to get into? Easy enough to play without doing any trading/grouping/pure solo or duo with a friend (assuming both are competent, experienced ARPG players)?
The only difficult part is the passive skill tree which can be pretty intimidating. The easy way to deal with that is to spend a hour or so in the forums looking for a build that looks interesting to you. And then use that as a guide. You don't necessarily have to follow it exactly, but it will give you an idea of where you should be headed.

I guess it is both -- you can use it as a mini-map, as seen at the beginning of the video or as an overlay, making it not so mini. I rarely use it in overlay mode...

Assuming Microsoft doesn't change their course again and release another reasonable OS (it would be nice, but I'm not holding my breath).

There is not going to be another OS. Win10 is the base line. They will add, modify it but it's going to be win10. They are in essence taking the mac X approach from all the interviews I've read.
Like I said, assuming they don't change course...
