    RIP Rev Jim

    Always enjoyed seeing him every year at WFFC. He was a great guy. _________________________________________ you can burn the land and boil the sea, but you can't take the sky from me.... I WILL fly again.....

    How many of you are gamers?

    Been a geek and a gamer my entire life, got a job in an arcade growing up just so I could play for free. These days I'm all about the PC as most console controller suck. That said, I own a PS3 with about a dozen games and we have a 360 and a Wii in the house as well. Both my PC and Laptop can play any game out there and I tend to play during what most people call TV time. So about 4 or 5 hours a week is all I can get in these days. So I have a few games "in progress." Everything is PC based unless noted *Little Big Planet (PS3) *WoW (80 Prot Warrior - still raid on it) *Bioshock *Fallout 3 *Red Alert 3 *Left 4 Dead (this gets most of my time) *TF2 *COD4 *All the Guitar Hero/Rock Bands (PS3) *World of Goo *Peggle *FEAR 2 *Madden xx (PS3) *Braid *Audiosurf *Spore *UT3 *etc....you get the point Steam with it's weekend sales are the best thing! _________________________________________ you can burn the land and boil the sea, but you can't take the sky from me....

    So how did it happen?

    Just another pro tip to everyone: Update your Adobe Flash software. As this software becomes even more popular to deliver banner advertisements on the web, the more people are finding exploits in it. In the last year there has been at least three separate exploits that allowed malware to be delivered to a computers via legitimate websites (even some as big as CNN, Yahoo). Also, switch to Firefox and learn how to use the plugin "NoScript" to your advantage. Trusted sites are no longer trusted sites and haven't been for a while. Also to back up Eric, AVG-Free is one of the best pieces of software you can install on your computer to protect yourself, especially at that cost. _________________________________________ you can burn the land and boil the sea, but you can't take the sky from me....

    Vote, Dammit!

    I'm sure it would have been. I was going to be there by 8ish after leaving work at 6. The gates were supposed to open at 8:30p but they opened them right at 6 due to the overwhelming size of the crowd spilling over into Michigan Ave. A couple of my Chicago Cop friends were working the event and they, along with the Obama office in my area, both let me know that I would never get into the park by the time I got down there. So, I went home and with pride watched the polling come to a close. It just means I'll have to do what my brother in law did to get invited into the VIP section in 2012

    Voted. And you can see the attachment for where I will be tonight. _________________________________________ you can burn the land and boil the sea, but you can't take the sky from me.... I WILL fly again.....

    Just Vote.

    I don't care where in the US you live. I don't care who you vote for. Just do it, and make sure that vote makes sense to you and what you think is best for this country. This includes more than just the Presidential election. So any excuse on what color your state may be doesn't matter to me. Just vote. If you need to know where to go to vote, just google it: www.maps.google.com/vote Or go here: www.rockthevote.com Please don't debate in this thread. There are plenty of threads in SC for that. _________________________________________ you can burn the land and boil the sea, but you can't take the sky from me.... I WILL fly again.....

    Storm Pulse (Hurricane Tracking Website)

    From my understanding, the dead centering would be better than it moving just to the west of New Orleans. _________________________________________ you can burn the land and boil the sea, but you can't take the sky from me.... I WILL fly again.....

    The Dark Knight

    Yeah sure, from the guy who tried to get ME to post it. I ain't falling for no bannable post! It's a "joke" that has been circulated via goofy morning radio shows since a few days after his death. The joke is original as "The Titanic sinks" and "Jesus dies" following movies related to them. _________________________________________ you can burn the land and boil the sea, but you can't take the sky from me....

    The Dark Knight

    Pity you don't live in a town where they have real digital theaters then. Have you heard of these Ultra-Screens that are going up? I know Marcus Theater has them and they are put up on huge screens with decent sound systems. What I can't tell is if they are using typical 35mm projectors. They call them "IMAX" substitutes and I don't see how that is possible. _________________________________________ you can burn the land and boil the sea, but you can't take the sky from me....

    The Dark Knight

    And that is also part of what I like about real movie theaters. There is something about sitting in a dark room with hundreds of people and feeling their reaction to something HUGE going on. There are also times that sucks . . . so I guess it's a bit of a flip of the coin there. Heads you win . . . The contrast ratio on my camera still seemed a bit low. I was on the right hand side of the screen and the bottom left was too dark for my taste. I'm going back to see it again tomorrow on a regular screen and will most likely see it on IMAX at least one more time. edit: For those that know me....this movie had me speechless afterwards. I don't think I said much of anything till I got home. _________________________________________ you can burn the land and boil the sea, but you can't take the sky from me.... I WILL fly again.....

    The Dark Knight

    Easily one of the best movies I have ever seen. Heath Ledger as the Joker is a HUGE part of that. I didn't think this movie could live up to the hype. And seeing it in IMAX blew me away. I'll be doing that again as soon as it's not sold out _________________________________________ you can burn the land and boil the sea, but you can't take the sky from me.... I WILL fly again.....

    A Book By Roger Nelson

    Look forward to reading the book. He used to pass on so many of his stories on weather days and I've always been interested to hear the rest. Hopefully the jailbreak story is in there. Roger always took the negative attention better than anyone I've ever met. He was a great guy and it's amazing to see how much of an impact he had on others. Still miss him. _________________________________________ you can burn the land and boil the sea, but you can't take the sky from me.... I WILL fly again.....

    PC vs Console gaming

    PC > *, always. You can tell this isn't a large gaming community. You just touched on one of the hottest, most debated topics in that industry. Any other forum and this would be at 1000 pages already with quotes from Valve, Bioware, Microsoft, Blizzard, id, etc. Even with the popularity of gaming these days, the ratio of PC:Console has pretty much stayed the same. Most of this is due to the typical lifecycle of gaming. That being said, between me and my roommate we own every single console system going back to Intellivision. edit: btw, I've recently had a company discuss with me the possibility of moving out of state to start working for them on a possible big name title as a tester. I just wasn't a fan of rebooting my career at this point of my life and taking such a huge pay cut. _________________________________________ you can burn the land and boil the sea, but you can't take the sky from me....
