I picked the game back up last weekend and had a pretty identical experience. Quality drops and interesting legendaries that affect skills and game mechanics in fun, useful but not really game breaking ways. I also found far more crafting recipes dropping than I remember. I'm definitely excited to get into the expansion as soon as I can.
Do you have any peculiar friends named for cars?
Make sure you have a good towel ready.
Haven't you seen Debbie Does Denisova?
I think Apple's iphone color chart looks something like this (albeit with rounded corners and a faux-beveled overlay)
Clear, Metal, Black, White, Gold
Reserved for dirt poor plebs:
Every other color
"I used a string of random characters as my SSID to reduce the risk of collisions."
I don't get it. What does your SSID have to do with driving?
What driving? He just wants to avoid huge ships.
I assumed he wanted to avoid the other bits that were clogging the tubes.
I've had a similar wifi issue with my phone (Nexus S) maintaining a connection to a home network running one of those ISP provided all-in-one router/modems. The solution was to turn off "Avoid Poor Connections" in Settings > Wi-Fi> Advanced.
Why would teleportation lead to the collapse of civilization?
...he asked, oblivious to the nuclear bomb that had materialized on his coffee table.
I'd be happier without the media center add-on. I'd be using VLC or XBMC anyway.
I'm in the US, I only have a cell phone, and my number is also registered on the Do Not Call list. I've gotten 2 in the past month from numbers in Washington state. Legality doesn't seem to stop them. Though it's hard to complain since there's never anyone on the other end by the time I answer.
I've only played through the intro, a bandit camp, and a cave full of bandits, but I definitely agree, so far magic is way more fun than Oblivion. Setting people on fire, or watching lightning arc across their skin is way more satisfying than almost anything in Oblivion. Additionally, more than once, when I've run across multiple enemies, I've shot some fire at them with my left hand, realized I should try to use my sword to level that too, but I kill them with fire before they even make it to me. That's how a mage should play! I also like the change to a constant stream of magic firing from my hands, since now I don't have to waste half of my magicka when my Big Powerful Spell misses.
