I thought APK got called back to the mothership years ago. Awesome to see he's still spreading the good word.
Yeah, being a retard can hurt your bank account.
Yeah as BPY or as a relative value to exposure in Denver per Year.
Ten years ago and further back I used to play most PC games with a KB, Mouse, plus Joystick setup. That was for UT99, QuakeIII, Tibes2, and Mechwarrior2 and 3. also Sturmovik
In particular the joystick, having a twist grip, allowed (in MW3) relative movement mapping while allowing the mouse pointer to be free to point at things anywhere on the screen. So say in in a mech I could be moving "forward", rotate my torso 70-80degrees right, use the hat to shift my field of view 90degrees further to the right of my torso facing, and use the mouse to target things behind me with right arm weapons or anything that could lockon. My favorite setup of any game for controls.
Sadly much this functionality and immersivness was removed from MW4 because it was designed for the Xbox controller and thus had no provision for targeting things with a free mouse cursor.
Yeah I know.
I would hope DVRs count for something for a basic cable tv show, They are paying for cable vs free broadcast. I missed the Sunday show at Brewvies in SLC and watched on Xfinity.comcast.net in the morning before work.
Hank builds a robot. It terminates his enemies.
TLDR, way better than Darth f'n Vader in Star Wars.
It's more of a cautionary tale. The main character is freed from a measure of fear of consequences by certain death and uses his chemist knowledge to make a quick buck to pay the bills. But it turns out, being really smart makes him quite good at being a badguy. Being masterful at something is seductive and he slides into the evil while justifying his actions, always viewing himself as the hero. But in the end he realizes the truth.
I think of the ancient greek concept of nature as the progenitor to rational thought in the west. Rebellion against Taoist dogma in the east.
Yet we still have people that don't want to take any more responsibility for their actions than a beaver building a dam.
SOP is you train for your first plane as an "engineer" and if you're good you choose between first officer and then captaining the plane or upgrading with more training on a different plane. Though the constant divestiture of senior talent on corporate airlines I sometime feel like the baggage handler got promoted to captain.
So are Surface2 running Atom instead of ARM? That'd be the big news.
Dad was a KC135 (SAC) and later KC10 (NJ-ANG) guy. I don't recall a stack of books or even 1 book. Not that I consider a tablet inferior to a thigh mounted paper notepad. Maybe they made the navigator carry them.
I love warm gold that glows.
That's a bit of an exaggeration. When the Swiss militia was armed with battlerifles they might have been able to shoot through two guys coming up a pass and wound a third. But the modern assault rifle packs a smaller punch; You'd be lucky to get two.
I'd pick the UN, USA, Russia, and China. probably in that order. Call it Operation Blueredyellow Dawn. Everybody or just one big country attacks the neutral fortress nation. Anyways it sounds like a good story.
