Glad things worked out for you Blue. I think Honda might have a battery problem since you are the forth person I've heard from that has had to replace a Honda battery way before it's time. My aunt got into it with the dealership cause Honda "claimed" the lights on the car must have been left on numerous times to kill the battery...which is BS since i'd be the one jumping her car since she lives up stairs from us.
That just a lackey at the dealership talking out of their ass. If the battery is under warranty they should just replace it and smile while apologizing for the inconvenience.

My crown vic would turn off the headlights after ~10 minutes to save the battery (even if the lights were manually switched on). I only ran into it a couple of times when I wanted to leave the lights on. And I know of other cars that shut them down when they sense the battery is getting low. You'd think it would be a standard "feature" nowadays.

Well, you see all the flaws a game has before you buy it and spend time downloading it.... which save you from wasting time and money or you watch them for entertainment But if that isn't your thing that's fine ^^

Since I cut TV out of my life youtube and streams replaced it with relevant content I find entertaining
I'll briefly watch a let's play to see if it's something I think i'll like. Along with a video review or two.

I’m a bit split on this:

For multiplayer games, I think Let’s Plays are a good thing. They show how a game functions, and can raise interest in a game that may have no marketing budget.

For single player, story-driven games, they can be devastating to sales. Why buy an adventure game when you can watch the story, and avoid the downtime of dying or getting narratively “stuck”?

To make matters less altruistic, keep in mind that some streamers make shocking amounts of money, and their video content is almost entirely provided by the games they play. The people who MADE that content should be getting a cut of that, especially when it’s a single player game where the video undoubtedly cannibalizes sales.

The excuse of “but I never would have paid to play that game” is a weak one...yes you would, the price just hadn’t dropped to your tipping point yet. But if you watch a play through of it, there’s no incentive for you to EVER purchase the game. Again, this assumes single player, story-driven.

You bring up some good points.

It is amazingly true that this company spends far far FAR too much time in developing advertisements, updates, plans, schedules, discussions, bugfix videos, tours, etc than actually developing the game.
There are companies that don't show you anything and then magically a game just shows up. Then there's RSI where you hear tons about development and after a few years ... you keep hearing tons about development.
I've not said this much but I wish that they would just shut the hell up and finish development. Literally.
This game needs exposure for funding its development. Advertising and being in the news is the only way for a crowdfunded project to reach its goals.

Yup.

At some point, people (not men or women, people...) will have to learn that you can't have it all. You can't be a mega-rich CEO and not seriously stunt your relationships with family and friends. You can't wait till 45 and hope that you pop out a brood of perfectly healthy kids as if you were still 20.

And most telling, women who wait till their late 30's/early 40's to look for Mr. Right are entering a market where they are nearly superfluous.

Even if portions of the world are willing to make believe we can have it all, biology gives zero cares.

Oh look, it's Mansplaining in the wild, impressive. sigh

That mbam update drove me nuts on Saturday working on 2 customers computers. They were both underpowered towers and all I barely had time to do before they locked up was launch task manager and watch the memory usage ramp up to 100% usage.
Safe mode, task manager and msconfig to the rescue, allowed me to narrow it down to Malwarebytes. A quick search of their forums mentioned the bad update and that it was fixed.
Just glad it did not happen on a regular business day.

Hey Blue, Try disconnecting the cables that run to the battery and reattach them, even if they seem connected properly. I've had the same issue where even a jump would not work and there was no signs of any sort of power making it to the engine. I thought it was some electrical issue and called my mechanic buddy and he was like naw man, that doesn't sound right. He came over, jostled the cables, and still no power. Then he reseated the cables and the vehicle started right up. I'd try that before calling for a tow or whatever situation you're up against.

Good Luck.

Good point, oxidation build up between the battery and the connectors can prevent current from flowing. Reseating the cables would scrape enough away to get it to start.
I agree, i drove a brand new rental car 400 miles and when i turned it off it would not crank. Clamp was loose on the battery post.

Blue said "when I tried my 'starter', it failed to work, and said the battery had a 0% charge." I'm not sure what he meant by "starter", unless it is a device you attach to a cars battery and use it to diagnose and/or jump. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Stanley-1000-Amp-Peak-Jump-Starter-J509/14560016

I watch Leonard French to get a better legal understanding of what both sides are claiming; I don't see that as useless at all. Of course it helps to remember that just because someone SHOULD win a case or a ruling doesn't mean they will in court because there are always too many moving parts in a legal proceeding to be able to consistently predict outcomes. After all, Leonard's own filing on behalf of Imagos Software for dismissal of Alex Mauers late (and therefore technically legally inadmissible) response to their lawsuit against him wasn't granted despite being legally flawless and backed by tons of precedent. You just never know.

Can't wait for the legally inept to say CIG has already won because of this response, or because 1 or 2 lawyers think so as well.

Awfully telling of their educations. Or perspective on history.
Argumentum ad verecundiam. One can look at the evidence and make an educated assessment, especially with the evidence presented by legal experts. Claiming no-one here can offer an opinion unless they're a lawyer is like claiming no-one can criticise Donald Trump because they're not a political scholar. If something looks like shit and smell likes shit then maybe, just maybe, it actually is shit.

Cutter wrote on Jan 28, 2018, 17:40:
It really all comes down to how the original agreement was structured. And since I haven't seen it, nor apparently anyone else except the lawyers and a few execs of both parties no one is really qualified to remark on any of this anyway. It's all just wild conjecture of the 'he said/she said' variety. So without knowing that this all really amounts to much ado about nothing.
Actually, the GLA was included in CIG's motion to dimiss. That's why people are discussing this, because legal experts have actually been offering their opinions and there have been many YouTube videos about it. They all seem to conclude that most of Crytek's claims are demonstrably false but there are a few that can't be resolved by the motion to dismiss.

CIG clearly seems to have the upperhand but trial could reveal information we haven't yet seen. For instance, one would have to look at how Crytek has constructed other contracts and if they were interpretted in the same way. There may also be email chains that clarify particular points in the GLA. One thing that's not in dispute though is that Crytek made numerous basic legal errors in its lawsuit, especially in the original lawsuit prior to amendment.
If you insist on bringing common sense, basic intelligence and logic into this discussion we will have to ask that you to leave. Consider this your first warning.

Yeah, replacing an obviously bad "0-volt" battery is probably the first thing I would try. Saves a tow to the dealer charge and then you can just take it in for a checkup (unless something horrible happened that killed the battery in the first place. )
Even new batteries fail. I was watching a Nascar race and the Interstate Batteries car had to pit due to battery failure. DOH
