Yeah, ME3 has a multiplayer portion which was kind of an afterthought but a lot of people (myself included) really like it.
Why do they always have to do this when I have a bout of insomnia and would really like to get online and shoot some Geth? Ugh.
I know for 100% fact I'm not colourblind...
That's actually not a cure. It's a treatment, and it works, but it's not a cure.
I started doing that about 7 years ago. I was never obese, but I was overweight and I ate a lot (and I mean a LOT) of crap.
So, I stopped eating crap, and started getting a lot more exercise. I didn't lose any weight but I lost a whole lot of fat. My A1C last check was 6.1, and my glucose levels tend to be normal... but.
If I go eat a pizza right now, my blood sugar will still spike. It probably won't go a LOT above 200, but it will get there and stay there for a lot longer than a non-diabetic. Now my way of dealing with that is to never EVER eat anything with as many carbs in it as a pizza would have, and limit my carb intake to early in the day before I do the whole exercise thing.
I'm at the point where I've got it pretty much under control (much to the chagrin of my original doctor which I have since moved on from for obvious reasons) but I would love, love, LOVE a cure. Diabetes forced me to develop the tools and discipline to stay in shape, and I would likely still do that, but I do miss soo much good food.
*laughs* ok, you win THIS time! (;
Duh. You use a 2D battery!
Finally, someone who knows EXACTLY what I'm talking about.
Hell if you want to impress me, make a 2D phone. That'd be pretty cool unless you drop it on it's side and chop off your foot.
I like this trend. Ok, it's not a trend yet but I hope it will be. Yeah, I'll probably never make it into space and even if I do it'll probably only be "technically" space, rather than OH MY GOD I'M IN SPACE. But this is something I've always wanted to do, but I'd rather not spend $5K on it.
So come on, more competition, preferably while I'm still young!
Depends on the topic. We're very predictable about this particular topic that I was dead-on.
Given that this is Slashdot, I could pretty much predict the results without even looking. In fact, they're exactly where I guessed they'd be, for once...
Works perfectly for me... granted, I tend to only use it for one Simpsons episode at a time, but I have streamed full 2+ hour 1080p movies with DTS sound on the thing, and have used it for a few days when my regular media center was down. It's never been more sluggish than any other XBMC implementation I've tried...
Or a Raspberry PI with one of the XBMC distros for well under $50 including all the accessories you'll need. I have one of those set up as an entertainment center for my treadmill.
The living room has a mini PC with Ubuntu and an old version of MythTV. I'd love to switch to XBMC (or a current version of Myth) but customising the remote buttons with XBMC is an insane pain, and the music player in the new MythTV (and XBMC) are horrific.
Tesla sell real cars that happen to be all-electric. And by "real" I mean "practical". The leaf has a range of maybe 80 miles. And (according to a NIssan dealer) that drops to "maybe 40" in the Minnesota winter. Even if Tesla cars lose half their advertised range here, it's still more than the Leaf's optimal conditions range.
I looked into the Leaf last time I was car shopping. I went to a Nissan dealer. They told me they don't actually HAVE a Leaf, but they'd be happy to show me a picture of one. They said they'd have three of them in stock in three months, because people had pre-ordered them, and maybe I could look at one then. Not test-drive one though. Just look.
But it's really the range that's the problem. There's no competition for Tesla on practicality. There's definitely competition on affordability.
Leaf is definitely a niche vehicle for people who never commute very far. Ever. I'd love to have an all-electric car, but a Leaf doesn't have the range, and a Tesla is way the hell too expensive. I kinda liked the Volt (over-engineered UI notwithstanding) but I just couldn't bring myself to pay that much for a car. Plus that guy's half-gas so it's a totally different ballpark than a Leaf is anyway.
