Out of the Blue

Okay, it's a long season, and anything can still happen, but the Mets' hot start is so torrid that I feel I have to follow-up on my opening day jokes about their prospects. After 12 games, the amazin's are now in first place by five games. This is the first time in Major League history this had happened, and we're talking a history that runs back 130 years! Again, a 162 game schedule is specifically to allow everything to eventually find its level, and they've only played the dreaded Braves once, but that is still pretty darned impressive.

My freakin god, knowing this from the beginning would have made the game soo much damn easier…soo much. Man, I am tard.

You think that's bad...

When I played the original Splinter Cell, I played until the last few minutes of the game before I knew you could stabilize the sniper rifle with one of the trigger-keys on the controller.

That's right. I played the whole game with the sniper rifle moving around with my pulse/breath/etc wait for it to line up for the shot.

I felt like a complete idiot. I gotta start reading the manuals.

I'm responding to my own post, yes, but, as it turns out... the cable modem isn't an issue - I tested out another cable modem I had handy with a very helpful Comcast tech on the line - forgot to take down his name, he deserves a cookie, or something.

Anywho, the upstream/downstream signals were outside normal parameters (especially upstream, though still not horribly off), but I've arranged for a tech to come out this weekend to again, diagnose the lines... and then refer to another tech who, apparently, would install some sort of device that boosts the upstream signal... I vaguely recall having had that done when I was living in Southborough. So, cable problem solved (sort of).

Anyone who has ever had hot chocolate knows how to stir something hot, does it really take an instructional video?

Ok, I just finished Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory (see some post on the weekend about me knowing I am behind).
Great game! Just great!

One thing though, to show how much of a tard I am.

I thought the game was really hard, yes I always play on the hard levels but I thought it was extra hard (too hard to be on a console). On the last level when I spent hours trying to get by the hallway on either side of the fortified rooms IR cameras and could not without being detected, I decided to look it up online in a walkthrough. Turns the freak out the pistol has an alternate fire that temporarily disables certain electronic devices. And you can even identify those devices with your fancy ass binoculars.

My freakin god, knowing this from the beginning would have made the game soo much damn easier…soo much. Man, I am tard.

Anyway. I am done with it now, and thank god. Been playing it way too much since Saturday afternoon. Way too much, got so much other stuff to catch up on now (non gaming related)!

*string of expletives deleted*

Well, the Linksys cable modem decided to konk out again, before I got home today - and I've been looking at it (unplugged from the router) trying to reinit over and over, without any success for the past 10 minutes.

I'm pretty much ready to call it a bum unit, except for trying to register the other cable modem I've got in a box upstairs...

Ready to strip out all the cable wires, mentally,

Not only that, but it doesn't look to be consitent with a plane crash. If you have ever looked at lpane crash pictures, the debris is not that concentrated.

That scene seemed way too familiar.

I can not be certain because the results where not on the first google page, but that looks an awful lot like the plane crash set from the Tom Cruise War of the Crap Worlds movie.
I think maybe that guy took those pictures of the set.

I mean really, has anybody heard in the past 5 years of that many passenger jet’s crashing into houses, or hell, just one?


*edit*

Looks too similar too me.
If you account for the angels and lighting a lot looks the same, though some things are different. I only guess they where taken at different time then these when they where trying different things.

I call it fake and WotW set pictures and am moving along.

a plane crashed into my neighborhood today. decided to take some pics

http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=842534&page=231&pp=30

That sucks.

It looks like the thing was (relatively) empty. As to say, no passengers. The seats are all empty and there're no... remains.

Yet it looks like a large passenger jet.

I wonder what it was doing?
