Seriously. I always wanted one of those watches with the metric time. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swatch_Internet_Time
I'd mod you up if I could.
I think you're spot on. Perhaps the only thing I'd add to the competition for entertainment time would be satellite radio. I'd guesstimate that 90-95% of my time listening to music happens in the car, and having access to consistent, high quality radio eliminates the need to bring my own CD's on trips. I still occasionally buy new CD's when I hear music new to me and I'm curious about a band, but not nearly to the extent I did 10-15 years ago.
Evolution is only a theory.
No static issues with that plastic box?
Why don't you just make the icons and text bigger? Or is this not something supported on Macs? Reducing the resolution was a reasonable solution 10 years ago on CRT monitors when the OS and software didn't scale, but doing that on an LCD looks horrible!
Or, as George Carlin suggested - a monster truck rally.
Oh yeah, "If you've done nothing wrong, you've got nothing to fear."
Any bets that the patch does exactly this?
mark.leaman writes "BoingBoing has a recent post regarding Games Workshop's aggressive posturing against fan sites featuring derivative work of their game products. 'Game publisher and miniature manufacturer Games Workshop just sent a cease and desist letter to boardgamegeek.com, telling them to remove all fan-made players' aids. This includes scenarios, rules summaries, inventory manifests, scans to help replace worn pieces — many of these created for long out of print, well-loved games...' As a lifelong hobby gamer of table, board, card and miniature games, I view this as pure heresy. It made me reject the idea of buying any Games Workshop (read Warhammer) products for my son this Christmas. Their fate was sealed, in terms of my wallet, after I Googled their shenanigans. In 2007 they forbid Warhammer fan films, this year they shut down Vassal Modules, and a while back they went after retailers as well. What ever happened to fair use?"
Just make the fonts bigger.
I like your ideas, and would like to subscribe to your newsletter.
... a product called MathCad 15 years ago. I seem to recall they had a free student version. Looks like they have a 30 day trial, and a $60 student version if it suits your purposes.
The EarthDawn group I play with use a combination of Skype, Palbee (webservice for video conferencing & white-boarding), and occasionally Twiddla for whiteboarding when Palbee refuses to work. Twiddla has a die-roller built into the chat client which is nice, but no video. We're a small group scattered across 3 timezones, so we're trying to get away with free services as much as possible. I'm really hoping Wave can integrate all these elements.
Yep. I'd love to say more, but that pretty much sums up my experience as well, and personally, I think being a blacksmith would be more rewarding.
