Oh lord. Never freeze roasted coffee.

Starbucks is terrible. They have trained a generation to like crap. You dark roast the garbage, and knowing this they have trained their customers to accept awful coffee. I go off on the management every time I have to go there for some reason.

A nice medium or light roasted coffee is packed with flavor. A dark roasted coffee is burnt, and tastes like it.

I guess it's funny, maybe not, but I have never owned a real version of windows. I did try once, and ended up with a technet version of win 7 for $20 or so. That was eventually busted, so I went with another corporate install, and then beat on that till MS accepted my version and ungraded me to win 10. It's a better games machine, there is no doubt. My ESO install, with about the same frame rate, was noticeably smoother.

I'm a happy camper, with my managed win 10, to run my games. I have not used windows seriously since NT 3.51, when I decided Linux would be more fun.

It's probable your THC level are too low. It's not hard to fix that.

They will be looking for an elevated white cell count first. Then if that exists, there will be more tests.

In Canada, I have all my numbers available online, from any blood tests I might take.

I won't be selling my games. The moment steam can't make a connection it offers to go offline. It used to be a bit tricky, but now it's transparent.

I am happy that Steam has my stuff, and that I cannot lose it. I'm used to just taking the entire Steam file tree somewhere else, when I play with the hardware, and just firing up Steam to fix that move.

Now I happily run win 10, it's a better game platform than win 7, and put up with all their madness, so Valve is just another managed system to me. No problem so far and I've had a Steam account for a long time.

In my 3rd character, my first new Survival one, I'm finally being the good guy in a Video Game. It's actually difficult to make it work out so the maximum number of 'regular people' NPCs survive and do moderately well. It's not how I normally play these kinds of games, but it fells good.

Gotta go kill a bunch of BoS remnants, then go buy some steel and concrete for the bar I'm building in one of my Settlements. Then I'll go get the dog, and go to Far Harbor.

Well this is fun. The game is OK, typical Fallout 3D game, but a bit nicer looking and a slightly better shooter. I'll leave it for now, the UI and controls need work and either Bethesda or mods will fix that problem in a while.

I'm going back to ESO, well continuing the game, as it's fun right now and getting better.

I am not pleased that an MMO has much better movement and control. I am precise and can put myself exactly where I want to be. A necessity in melee combat, but F4 is a clunky staggerer compared to ESO.

I have Ravens all around me. I live on Vancouver Island and I can tell you they will go rip off the Eagles, who are ripping off the Seagulls on the beach, but they don't go much further out to sea.

I'm not sure how they have a Raven sea going game, but I'm sure it's all good.

Wow. I've been playing ESO for far too long and ignoring the 'world of games' but this list looks like no new games came out this year.

Is it really this bad?

It's a wonderful game. I seldom post here but I have been around since the 90's at this site and others. My original account is long forgotten.

Anyway I have been enjoying the amazing angst and hair pulling hate by the people who are upset by ESO. It's my first MMO and third TES game. I think it does a wonderful job of taking TES into an MMO. Now I come from shooters, Doom originally and Stalker is my favorite game.

It is hard to get MMO combat right. I'm almost good and punch a few levels above my weight but I can see how much I have to learn. I was at one time good at Q3 etc and could keep up with the top few guys. In an MMO I'm a newbie. It's just great.

As an early access guy it's good they took the servers down for a few hours.

I'll need to go to the store etc.

This game is fun, very funny, and I'm learning how to fight MMO style. Both my son and I have played shooters since Doom and we are both having a blast. I'm a bit afraid for my son's business as he normally works a lot, but he's doing well so it's maybe time to kick back anyway.

As I knew what I was getting from the beta I have kicked up the hardware. A Korean 2560x1600 30", very sweet, and a GTX 780 to push it's pixels around. Brought the big expensive stereo back to life, all tubes, monoblocks etc, and wrapped it around the 30".

Gonna be using up time wholesale, for quite a while I fear.

Oh come on. I'm an old man and on legs day I lift 10x150 lb squats and the same for deadlifts. A total of 3000 lbs in under 10 minutes.

I used to throw freight at one time. We'd do about 22,000 lbs each in 45 minutes.

To the console people. Can you jump sideways and spin at the same time?

I can. I'm very hard to hit and I'll have you in my sights very quickly. I am, on a good day, very accurate as well.

You have no chance to survive. Make your time.

Oh yeah I'm 64 this year.
